Weekend Movie Marathon: Unwatched DVDs
« on: November 12, 2009, 01:40:14 PM »
Weekend Movie Marathon
Unwatched DVDs
This weekend I decided to try to get some of my Unwatched DVDs watched. Between all the movies I bought in October... all the DVDs given to me lately... and getting all of my mothers DVDs I now have over 200 movies on DVD I have yet to watch. And I really need to work on getting that number down. Now... I may have seen a few of these movies before... but not since I got them on DVD. Unfortunately I do have some real life stuff to do this weekend... but I am still hoping to get through a good handful of movies. If I get enough time to myself to do so. So anyway... this weekend I decided to watch...

Altered States, Deliverance, Norma Rae, Rocky Balboa and the Wicker Man are just a few that I really liked on your list.

What is Clint Eastwood: Out of the Shadows?  Is it a documentary on his career?

Of course, I'd like to see your reviews of any DVDs I've given you like Forty Guns (will you like it more than I did?) or White Zombie...

Yup... it came with that Dirty Harry set I got.

OK... will see what I can do. There is still several you sent over that I haven't watched yet. Especially now that I got all those John Wayne war movies you sent to mom.

If you wanted to list the John Wayne war movies, I could rank them for you or at least tell you which ones I especially like.  Flying Tigers may be my favorite war film of his.  Sands of Iwo Jima got him his first Oscar nomination. I'm not expecting you to watch a lot of the ones in any one marathon that I sent but one would be nice.

I would like to see a review of "The Substitute", as you probably bought it after my recommendation. I hope it does not disappoint you. The cover is misleading in my opinion.

As I said, my favorite of those is Flying Tigers...In Harm's Way, The Longest Day, and Sands of Iwo Jima are also considered excellent films, though The Longest Day isn't really a John Wayne film...he's one of many in an all-star cast.  The Green Berets might be considered the worst of the lot.

OK... what are you people doing to me!?!

I decided to start my weekend with the movie The Substitute. Watching it while doing other things... so my attention is not 100% on it... but I am watching it enough to stay with the story with no problem.

Now... the problem is that this is a Danish language movie. But it is dubbed in English... which I normally prefer since I can't read fast enough to enjoy it with the subtitles. But damn if you people don't have me seeing these dubs as just not right. Even though I know I can't give it the attention needed to watch it in it's original language with subtitles... I am sitting here wishing I was watching it that way!

I tell you... you people around here is such a bad influence!  :tease:

Closed Captioned

My Thoughts:
I blind bought this DVD last month after watching the trailer and reading a positive review or two. I have mixed feelings after watching this one. It isn't exactly what I expected. but it is an enjoyable movie. Though I have seen better. This movie is originally in the Danish language. So I ended up watching the dubbed version. Which I normally preferred. But after watching some foreign movies without  dubs I discovered today I prefer the original language track with the subtitles now. So that kinda took away from my enjoyment a little as well. While I didn't enjoy this one as much as I hoped I would... it was worth the time I put into it.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5
