My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this movie. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is kind of a quirky type comedy. There is a few people in this one that I am familiar with from different TV series. Of course there is Jennifer Aniston from Friends. Then there is Diedrich Bader who was in The Drew Carey Show. I aslo noticed John C. McGinley from Scrubs had a small part. And finally there is Gary Cole who starred in American Gothic. This isn't the type of movie that makes me literally laugh out loud... but it is one I found very entertaining. Definitely worth checking out.

     The Punisher (2004/United States)

Lions Gate Home Entertainment
Director:Jonathan Hensleigh
Writing:Jonathan Hensleigh (Writer)
Length:123 min.
Rating:R
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, English: DTS: 5.1, English: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles:English, Spanish

Stars:
Russell Andrews as Jimmy Weeks
Omar Avila as Joe Toro
James Carpinello as Bobby Saint/John Saint
Mark Collie as Harry Heck
Russ Comegys as Tattooed Mike
Antoni Corone as T.J.

Plot:
The Punisher walks through the world we all know, a world darkened by war, crime, cruelty and injustice. He has no superpowers to battle the evil he sees – only his fierce intelligence, his years of combat experience and, above all, his iron determination to avenge those wronged by society's villains.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Music Videos
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
This is the first time I ever seen this movie. And I must say... I enjoyed every minute of it. Very good story... loaded with action... and even has a chuckle or two (thinking the fight with that huge Russian here). I never read any of the comics... so don't know how the movie compares to them. But if this movie is pretty close to the comics I wouldn't mind reading a few. I highly recommend this one if you never seen it.

     Quigley Down Under: Western Legends (1990/United States)

MGM Home Entertainment
Director:Simon Wincer
Writing:John Hill (Writer)
Length:120 min.
Rating:PG-13
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Mono, French: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround
Subtitles:French, Spanish

Stars:
Tom Selleck as Matthew Quigley
Laura San Giacomo as Crazy Cora
Alan Rickman as Elliott Marston
Chris Haywood as Major Ashley-Pitt
Ron Haddrick as Grimmelman
Tony Bonner as Dobkin

Plot:
Tom Selleck gives the boldest performance of his career in this "new style, revisionist western with the panoramic scope of a movie epic" (Los Angeles Times). Fierce gunfights, forbidding landscapes, breakneck chases – all hallmarks of the classic western – are reinvented in this hard-pounding actioner that "revitalizes the genre" and comes out "a sure winner" (The Hollywood Reporter).

Arriving in Australia with nothing more than a saddle and his prized six-foot Sharps rifle, American sharpshooter Matthew Quigley thinks he's been hired to kill off wild dogs. But when he realizes instead, that his mission is murder – to "eliminate" the Aborigines from a wealthy cattle baron's land – Quigley refuses and quickly turns from hunter to hunted. Forced to wage a savage war against his former employer, Quigley proves that no one gets the best of a steely-eyed American gunfighter – no one, that is, except the mysterious beauty (Laura San Giacomo, sex, lies, & videotape) who rides by his side and captures his heart.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Feature Trailers
  • Featurettes
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
While I have seen this movie before... it hasn't been since it was originally released on VHS.... a good 20 years ago. So needless to say there wasn't much about this movie that I remembered. Basically like seeing it again for the first time. All I really remembered from it is that I enjoyed it quite a bit. And that proved to be true today. I enjoyed every minute of the storyline. And also enjoyed Tom Selleck in the role of Quigley as well. Which did surprise me in a way. I never minded him as an actor... but at the same time he isn't someone I ever thought of when I tried to think of good actors either. I always been the type of person that enjoys a good Western... but only when I am in the mood to watch one... which seemed to come seldomly. But while I really wasn't that much in the mood for one today... I still enjoyed it quite a bit. This is one I would recommend to anyone. Even if Westerns isn't your favorite genre.

Thanks Kathy...
While I want to see that one as well... I picked a bit of a shorter one (which I plan to do from this point on) since I need to finish this marathon before October gets here... only have a few days to watch the rest. :P

     Return of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman (1987/United States)

Universal
Director:Ray Austin
Writing:Michael Sloan (Screenwriter), Michael Sloan (Story By), Bruce Lansbury (Story By)
Length:94 min.
Rating:NR
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles:None

Stars:
Lee Majors as Steve Austin
Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Somers
Richard Anderson as Oscar Goldman
Martin E. Brooks as Rudy Wells
Tom Schanley as Michael Austin
Lee Majors II as Jim Castillian

Plot:
Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers are reunited after ten years of living separate lives. Jaime's memory is fully restored, and she tries to reconcile her feelings for Steve. Steve also tries to build a relationship with his 23-year-old estranged son Michael, who is now an Air Force pilot. Michael is critically injured in a tragic jet crash, and Dr. Rudy Wells rebuilds him with state-of-the-art bionic replacements. The radical group Fortress captures Rudy and Michael with plans to build their own bionic army to take over the United States. Now it's up to Jaime and Steve to stop them.

Extras:
  • Scene Access


My Thoughts:
This is one that I actually burned myself off an old recording off the TV. So needless to say the quality from an old VHS Tape left a lot to be desired. But I must admit... considering the source material... it came out better then I thought it would. I have always been a fan of all the Bionic series. And this reunion movie is no different. I enjoyed watching it again after many years. I got a kick out of both Steve Austin and Jaime Somers feeling obsolete after seeing the new Bionic Man (Steve's son). Kept saying... "Hey... I can't do that!"

     The Stepford Wives: Full Screen Special Collector's Edition (2004/United States)

Paramount Home Entertainment
Director:Frank Oz
Writing:Ira Levin (Original Material By), Paul Rudnick (Screenwriter)
Length:93 min.
Rating:PG-13
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1

Plot:
Oscar® winner Nicole Kidman heads an all-star cast in this dark comedy thriller.

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Audio Commentary
  • Feature Trailers
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Featurettes
  • Outtakes/Bloopers
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
I decided to watch this one next because I am a Nicole Kidman fan. I know this is a remake to an older movie... but I never seen either version before today. So I can't say how faithful to the original movie this one is. Though I hope that it isn't. I can't be sure of course... but while watching it... it felt more like they were making fun of the original movie more then anything else. I got to say... this one didn't impress me as much as I would have liked. I just found it to be a little too weird and silly. But it does make me wonder if I would like the original movie.

Please please, please, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2! If you need that in October, then I suggest True Grit.

 :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Yeah... I am trying to do two things at this point...

1. Save all horror for October. Like Jimmy said... only 2 days now
2. Finish this marathon within those two days... so watching shorter movies whenever possible. Been sticking with right around 90 minute movies when I can.

So will have to see from there.
