Weekend Movie Marathon: Anything Goes
« on: June 18, 2009, 10:19:29 PM »
Weekend Movie Marathon
Anything Goes
For this weekend's marathon I wanted to be able to watch anything and everything. No matter the genre, who stars in it or whether I have seen it or not. This way no matter what I am in the mood for I can feel free to pop it in. I found myself more and more in the mood for a movie this weekend... because of that I am starting my weekend marathon a night early. My Weekend Movie Marathons usually runs from Friday morning to mid day Sunday. But I just couldn't wait for it so starting it on Thursday evening.

If anyone here would like to see a particular movie reviewed this weekend look over my list HERE and let me know... and I will do my best to get to it at some point this weekend. And I will shoot the first person that asks for a High School Musical review!  :tease:

Phantom of the Opera? Hair? Grease? Dirty Dancing?

The Messengers

I haven't seen it, but it's horror, so it should be right up your alley. Plus, it would complement the little Kristen Stewart marathon I'm planning to do.

Messengers is not bad... but not very good either.  pretty much just an average movie for the genre. You can see my review of it HERE

Blood Work
FBI profiler Terry McCaleb almost always gets to the heart of a case. This time, that heart beats inside him. He's a cardiac patient who received a murder victim's heart. And the donor's sister asks him to make good on his second chance by finding the killer. That's just the first of many twists in a smart, gritty suspense thriller that's "vintage Eastwood: swift, surprising and very, very exciting" (Jim Svedja, KNX/CBS Radio).

Clint Eastwood produces, directs and stars in this edgy acclaimed mystery based on Michael Connelly's novel and scripted by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential). With a superb cast brought to a hard boil playing characters to quicken your pulse and hold you spellbound, Blood Work works exceptionally well.


My Thoughts:
I felt like a good suspense/thriller... when I spotted this one in my list I knew it had to be the one to watch since the only thing I remember about it is that I enjoyed it the first time I seen it. I watched it once when I got the DVD back in 2003. It was one of the movies I got for $5.00 when the video store I worked for at the time closed down. I am glad I decided to watch it again. It is a very good movie. I thought Clint Eastwood was great in it.  Jeff Daniels was pretty good as well. But what I really liked about this one is the story itself.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Can you generate a list of your unwatched titles Pete?

If not I couldn't find a review for Identity?

I think that you've read my mind, since I'm one of the guy that would have been shot :laugh:

So no High School Musical, Brittany would have been so happy to watch it with her father for Father's day. I can request this one since it isn't on the banned list :tease:

But Reefer Madness could be a good choice too...

edited because a dvdp online collection title seems to be unlinkable

Last Action Hero
Action-adventure superstar Schwarzenegger bursts through the screen as a bigger-than-life movie hero in this non-stop adventure from acclaimed director John McTiernan (Predator, Die Hard)

My Thoughts:
This is a movie I find to be very under-rated. This is just a fun pop-corn movie. Sure almost the whole movie is so over-the-top it is ridiculous. But that is what makes this movie so fun. I really get a kick out of all the fun it makes of action movies... even movies in general.

My Rating:

My favorite scene is when they are in the real world and the villain has Arnie pined down and suddenly the gun goes *click*. Arnie gets cocky, comes out of hiding and jokes about that the villain forgot that in the ral world guns will run out of bullets. The villain's reply: "No, I left one chamber empty." Bang!

King Kong (2005)
Academy Award®-winning director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) brings his sweeping cinematic vision to King Kong. Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody star in this spectacular film filled with heart-pounding action, terrifying creatures and ground-breaking special effects unlike anything you've seen before! Get ready for breathtaking action in this thrilling epic adventure about a legendary gorilla captured on a treacherous island and brought to civilization, where he faces the ultimate fight for survival. Experience the movie that critics are hailing as a "rousing, exciting cinematice adventure!" (Scott Manz, Access Hollywood)

My Thoughts:
Let me start out by saying this is my first taste of any King Kong movie. So I can not compare it to any of the previous movies. The first thing that popped in my mind when I pulled this from the shelf is "Damn!... this movie is Long!"... it clocks in just over 3hrs! But ok... I can accept that as long as it is an interesting movie. I was prepared for it being set back in the past... and that part of it was good... think it works better then having it placed in the present. But what I wasn't expecting was the dinosaurs that were also on the island. Not that it was a bad thing... because it wasn't... just an unexpected thing. I have to admit I did enjoy where he was fighting off the 3 Tyrannosauruses. Though I do think the giant insects were a bit much for my taste. Of course the scenes where he was brought to civilization were good. Seeing Kong let loose in New York City was definitely a lot of fun. I thought King Kong himself was well done. He looked good on the screen... though I do think I was expecting him to be a little bit bigger. But that was just going by what I heard since I never seen a King Kong movie before. Over all a movie I really enjoyed. I bought this one used... and the only downfall of it for me is no real extras and it is the Full Screen version. So it is one I will consider replacing some day.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
