I couldn't figure out what kind of theme I wanted to do for this weekend's movie marathon... so I figured I would just watch whatever I am in the mood for... when the mood hits... and post it in this thread this weekend.

My Thoughts:
This is a movie I know I have seen before... but it has been many years. Probably in the '90s when it was first released on VHS. So basically the only thing I remembered about it was it had Robin Williams as a grown up Peter Pan and that I enjoyed it at the time. The first thing I thought before watching this movie... while setting up this review was this is a long movie! 2 hours and 22 minutes long? Wow! At that length I sure hope this movie holds up well for me.

As you can see from the cover I bought this one as a 2 disc set along with the movie The Indian in the Cupboard. A movie I am not sure if I ever seen. I really remember nothing about it. So I basically bought this one for Hook. If by any chance I don't care for either of them... at least I got this set cheap at only $5.99!

After watching the movie I have to admit... this one is nothing more then a huge production full of mindless fun. But I did enjoy every moment of it still. Even the slower moments of the movie was done in a fun way. I thought everyone in it done a great job. This movie alone was well worth the price I paid for the set. I was concerned about the length of this movie... but it was so fun that the time flew by so fast I didn't even notice how long it is. And if that is not the sign of good entertainment... I don't know what is. If you never seen this movie I definitely recommend it. But don't go into it expecting more then what it is. Nothing more then great imagery and mindless fun. Expect anything more then that then chances are you will be disappointed.

Extras:
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
This is a made for TV movie that originally aired on Lifetime. This came up as a recommendation at Amazon when I ordered The Good Witch... and when I watched the TV Spot on Youtube I knew I had to see it as it dealt with the supernatural as Michael (Catherine Bell), the 911 operator got ghostly calls from a little girl. I have been a big fan of Catherine Bell every since I first saw her on the TV series JAG. And I absolutely loved her in this movie. As much as I recently enjoyed her in the movie The Good Witch... I enjoyed her even more in this one. This one had me glued to the TV from the very beginning to the very ending. And without saying much to give it away... I will just say I loved how they ended this one. A thrilling movie from the start.... with a touching ending. I can easily see myself watching this movie again.

Title: Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut
Year: 1980
Director: Richard Donner
Rating: PG
Length: 116 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.40:1
Audio: English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

Stars:
Gene Hackman
Christopher Reeve
Marlon Brando
Ned Beatty
Jackie Cooper
Sarah Douglas

Plot:
You haven't seen all the Superman films until you've seen this! Superman II starring Christopher Reeve returns with a never-before-seen beginning and resolution. Director Richard Donner began shooting his vision of Superman II while concurrently filming Superman The Movie. For the first time, his unique vision is here. Jor-El (Marlon Brando in recently found footage) appears in key new scenes that amplify Superman lore and deepen the relationship between father and son. Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) plots more schemes to unmask Clark Kent as Superman. With so many changes, large and small, this version is an eye-opening alternate experience.

Extras:
Scene Access
Audio Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
I finally got to see this version of Superman II for the very first time. And let me tell you... I enjoyed every minute of it. This version corrects most of the problems I had with the theatrical release. All those strange new powers that you never seen before in anything related to Superman is gone from this one. They still have Superman give up his powers... which is a portion of the movie I don't particularly care for as I find those scenes a little too slow. But I understand they are needed for the story they were telling. And I found I enjoyed the story better in this version. I must say I am thankful to those of you that encouraged me to finally add this version to my collection. It is definitely the better version... I enjoyed every minute of it!

My Thoughts:
The mood hit me this morning to watch an animated movie. Since this one was recently given to me I decided to watch it again. I have seen this movie a couple times before... and have always enjoyed every second of it. It has become one of my favorite animated movies. It has been a while since I seen it last so I forgot just how good this movie is. The animation is done very well and where I am a big fan of Superhero movies... I felt the storyline was great too. Definitely one I would highly recommend for anyone who has never seen it.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Digital Copy


My Thoughts:
I have always been a fan of disaster movies... including the low budget ones you see a lot on SyFy Channel. (And I am still not used to the new spelling for SyFy Channel!) Matter of fact this movie is a TV movie that originally aired on the SyFy Channel. This one stars Brittany Murphy. It is one of her last roles before her untimely death. There is a couple other familiar faces in this one. There is Eriq La Salle who played Dr. Peter Benton on ER and Justin Hartley who played Oliver Queen on Smallville. I enjoyed this movie quite a bit... but one thing I had a problem with through-out this movie was Brittany Murphy as a seismologist. Not that her acting was bad or anything like that... but I just felt her size and how young she looked just worked against her in this role. Sure... there is some unbelievable stuff in this movie. But that is pretty much true about any of these type of disaster movie. I really enjoyed both storylines in this movie. Dr. Amy Lane and her team trying to stop the earthquake as well as her husband and child trying to survive the earthquakes as they make their way home. While I wouldn't say it is the best movie of it's kind... I did find it to be well worth watching.

My Thoughts:
This is one I never heard of before a friend of mine sent it to me in a box of movies. But after watching the trailer I looked forward to checking it out. Especially after finding out it is one of Wes Craven's movies. After watching it I found that I did enjoy it... but it wasn't quite as good as I was expecting. I mean it is a decent suspense/thriller... but I think I went into it with my hopes up a little too high. But I think it is worth watching and I am glad I have it in my collection.  Just don't go into it expecting too much.

I been going back and forth on ideas what kind of theme to have for this weekend's movie marathon. And I basically decided against any theme this weekend. That I will watch whatever I feel the mood. Though I will probably mainly concentrate on the movies in my unwatched pile. After all there is well over 900 title in that pile now. :P
