Weekend Movie Marathon: Unwatched DVDs
« on: June 21, 2013, 01:25:59 PM »
Weekend Movie Marathon:
Unwatched DVDs
I decided I needed to work on my unwatched pile this weekend. Not that I will really make that much of a dent in it considering I have up over 1,000 movies in my unwatched pile. Being the reason I need to work on the pile this weekend! Also the reason why I can't list them all here. So below is a list of films I think I would be interested in for this weekend. I definitely won't get to them all this weekend... probably no where near. My goal for this weekend is 6 movies. Though hopefully I will be able to do even more then that.

Some I am Considering:
9
Bad Ass
Battle Royale
Battle Royale 2: Requiem
The Break-up
Clash of the Titans (2010)
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Feast
Feast II: Sloppy Seconds
Feast III: The Happy Finish
Forbidden Planet
Full of It
Garfield
Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties
The Marine
Nancy Drew
Phantasm 2-4
Resident Evil: Retribution
Terminator Salvation
Thor: Tales of Asgard

I will leave the list at that. Though I may still pick some that isn't on the above list as well. As long as I never watched the DVD it is fair game.  :thumbup:

You might want to save the Feast trilogy for your October marathon.

9 and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs should be a Brit and her dad movie day - maybe she'll watch them with you.

Clash of the Titans is good but my heart belongs to the original.

I have so many unwatched horror in my collection that it wouldn't matter if I saved them for October or not. Though I may.

yeah... sure I will watch some with Brittany this weekend. :)

I really enjoyed the original Clash of the Titans too... but I am curious about the remake.

Claiming to drive a Porsche, date a movie star and have a rock-star for a dad, Sam soon finds himself loved by everyone.

My Thoughts:
This is a movie I never even heard of before a friend gave it to me. But the trailer looked like a lot of fun so was looking forward to seeing it. And even then it still took me 4 months to finally pop it into the player. Actually two players... the first player I tried didn't like this disc much... but it played perfectly in Brittany's player. Turned out the film isn't bad. Though there is nothing special about it either. Just an average film in my opinion.

I decided to watch this one with my daughter today. It is the first time I seen it... but she has seen it before. After watching I will say that I enjoyed it. Would say it is above average. Though I have seen better animated films lately. But this one is definitely worth the time put in to watch it. It has it moments where it really draws in my attention... but then again there was also times where I got easily distracted from the film as well.

I am planning on that one. Looked good by the trailer. But I am taking a small break from movies. Will probably get back to it either this evening or tomorrow. Watching a few episodes of HawthoRNe right now. :P

Film, not films. While you will feel compelled to watch the second one, I doubt you'll find anyone recommending it to you :laugh: (I have watched it more than once :bag:)

100% agree. This film got me interested in Asian cinema and essentially cost me thousands :laugh:.

Skip the second though, it's crap.

  • None


My Thoughts:
I just watched the DVD out of the DVD/BD Combo Pack. Unfortunately for some reason all the extras are on the BD disc alone... nothing at all on the DVD. I found the movie itself to be simply amazing. Even more so considering it is based on a true story. I was drawn in from the very beginning... and it kept my complete attention till the very end. A real feel good movie. One I couldn't recommend high enough. An excellent story that is wonderfully done. I just finished this film... and I already feel like I could watch it again. If that isn't a sign of an excellent film... I don't know what is.

I watched Dolphin Tale on my laptop this morning because... well... I was just to lazy to deal with getting up and putting it into the player when it was right there next to me and my laptop.  :bag: :laugh:

Anyway... because of this I went ahead and did a bunch of Vidcaps for DVD Profiler's gallery.... and thought I would share with anyone that wanted them.

LINK to the ZIP File. There is a total of 37 images you can pick and choose from (I know that may be too many for some people)

Some Samples:
