Weekend Movie Marathon: Unwatched Discs
« on: August 08, 2013, 08:26:56 PM »
Weekend Movie Marathon:
Unwatched Discs
My unwatched pile is so completely out of hand that I thought that I would work on it a bit this weekend. This doesn't necessarily mean I never seen the film before.... just that I never watched it since getting the film on disc. I have so many films unwatched that it is basically impossible to list them all here. Would take me the weekend to list them! :P But what I can do is list a group of them that I hope to get to this weekend.

Films I would Like to Watch this Weekend:
All About Steve
The Apparition
The Box
Change of Heart
E.T.: The Extraterrestrial
Gnomeo and Juliet
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow: Part 1
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow: Part 2 (If Arrives in Time)
Her Desperate Truth
Hotel Transylvania
Howard the Duck
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox
M*A*S*H: Goodbye, Farewell and Amen
Planet Hulk
The Truth About Jane

Even if the 3 not here yet arrives in time... I doubt I will have time to get to all 15 films this weekend. But we will see how many of them (or any other I decide I am in the mood for) I get to.

You have watched the Potter series the past few weeks, so I would suggest to finish that one off. I am still curious about The Box and would love to hear your reactioj to the supposed stinker that is All About Steve (gotta love the way Sandra accepted that Razzie award :hysterical:)

Yeah... would like to get to Harry Potter films if they arrive in time. They shipped... but haven't gotten here yet. The only reason I got All About Steve is because Sandra Bullock is in it.

     All About Steve (2009/United States)
IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
Director:Phil Traill
Writing:Kim Barker (Writer)
Length:99 min.
Rating:Rated PG-13 : Sexual Content Including Innuendos
Video:Anamorphic Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1, French: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Spanish: Dolby Digital: Dolby Surround, Commentary: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles:English, Spanish

Stars:
Sandra Bullock as Mary Horowitz
Thomas Haden Church as Hartman
Bradley Cooper as Steve
Ken Jeong as Angus
DJ Qualls as Howard
Howard Hesseman as Mr. Horowitz

Plot:
Sandra Bullock (The Proposal) and Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) star in this off-the-wall comedy about a blind date gone hilariously wrong. When eccentric, but lovable, Mary gets set up with Steve, a news channel cameraman, she falls hard. He does not. Mary decides to follow Steve on a cross-country hunt for breaking news and soon finds herself entangled in the story. But despite the media storm surrounding her, Mary may just discover her true place in the world...and the man of her dreams!

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


My Thoughts:
I wanted to watch this one because I am such a big fan of Sandra Bullock. But going into it I knew to expect an awful movie. I read some of the reviews... I know about Sandra's Razzie Award (And the great way she accepted it!)... so I knew not to go in expecting anything more then mediocre. After watching it for myself I can say I definitely seen better... but it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. It kept my interest enough to watch through-out to the end. And I can even say I enjoyed it... somewhat. But I do tend to expect more from a Sandra Bullock movie. There is also a familiar face in this one... Katy Mixon. I know her as Molly's stoner sister on Mike & Molly. This is not one I see myself watching all that often... but I can see myself watching it at some point again. There is worse ways to waste an hour and a half.

     M*A*S*H: Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen (1983/United States)

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
Director:Alan Alda
Writing:Alan Alda (Writer), Burt Metcalfe (Writer), John Rappaport (Writer), Dan Wilcox (Writer), Thad Mumford (Writer), Elias Davis (Writer), David Pollock (Writer), Karen Hall (Writer)
Length:120 min.
Rating:NR
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: Mono, French: Dolby Digital: Mono
Subtitles:

Stars:
Alan Alda as Capt. Benjamin Franklin 'Hawkeye' Pierce
Mike Farrell as Capt. B.J. Hunnicut
Harry Morgan as Col. Sherman T. Potter
Loretta Swit as Maj. Margaret 'Hot Lips' Houlihan
David Ogden Stiers as Maj. Charles Emerson Winchester III
Jamie Farr as Cpl./Sgt. Maxwell 'Max' Q. Klinger

Plot:
On February 28, nearly 106 million viewers turned in for the series finale of M*A*S*H, making "Goodbye, Farewell and Amen" the most-watched episode in TV History — a record that still stands today. Now you can relive the heartwarming television event that marked the end of one of the longest-running and most beloved shows of all time.

Even as the final ceasefire draws near, life at the 4077 is as hectic and crazy as ever. Hawkeye is reluctant to operate after recuperating from a nervous breakdown; B.J. receives erroneous orders to ship out early; Winchester forms a musical bond with a group of POWs; Hot Lips makes plans for her future; and Klinger dusts off his bridal gown for a special announcement!

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Featurettes
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:
While this is really a series finale... it is also a TV Movie. As it runs for 2 hours on DVD. I would guess with the commercials it ran probably 3 hours when it first aired. This is, in my opinion, one of the best series finales made. An great end to an excellent series. Watching this finale movie makes me almost want to watch the entire series again. So much fun watching it again. You got to love it when a series is ended in the right way... and what better way then a  nice long movie to say goodbye.

Stumbling through a twisted reality where even Superman is nowhere to be found. The Flash seeks the trusted wisdom of Batman, only to find a grittier, more violent Dark Knight in his place. The Flash and Batman, with the help of Cyborg, race to restore the original timeline while the alternate world is ravaged by a fierce war between Wonder Woman's Amazons and the Atlanteans led by a battle-hardened Aquaman.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this one quite a bit. It has an interesting story... and was fun to see the time travel/alternate universe storyline. I especially liked how they changed up the Batman... didn't care much for how they did Superman though. I also wasn't too thrilled with how some of the characters were drawn. But over-all a good film. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

As the two stuggle to save themselves, the presence feeds on their fear, pushing them toward a fate that will make you wish you didn't believe.

Extras:
  • Scene Access

My Thoughts:
This is one I never even heard of before getting the disc. Not sure how I missed it coming out. But then again I don't watch live TV like I used to... ever since getting the DVR years ago I just record all I watch and fast forward through all the commercials. After watching this one I must say I am a little let down. Not really a bad movie... but there really nothing special about it. I found I didn't really care about the characters. Just not enough development I guess. And the storyline itself failed to really pull me in. But I did enjoy some of the haunting scenes. I would say basically an average film. If you check this one out don't expect much. At the same time don't worry about missing this one.

     The Truth About Jane (2000/United States)

Extras:
  • No Extras What so Ever


My Thoughts:
This is a TV Movie that originally aired on Lifetime. This is part of a 3 TV movie set I just got yesterday. And was the one I wanted to see the most in the set. As I like both Stockard Channing and Ellen Muth. This is the first thing I see Ellen Muth in other the her series Dead Like Me. The first thing I noticed is the narration from Ellen Muth. It instantly made me think of her series... as the series is done the same way. I felt that they did a wonderful job with this film. It felt realistic and I must say it broke my heart seeing how much trouble the mother had accepting the idea her daughter is a lesbian. To me a parent should be nothing but accepting and behind their child no matter what... as long as they are healthy and happy. Sure it means they are going to have a tougher time in life. I am not blind... I can see that. But it is a parent's job to help their child through the tough times in their lives...not add to them. Anyway, I enjoyed every moment of this movie. Despite it being pure drama (not a favorite genre). Well worth the time put in to watch it.

But either way... this one is well worth the time put in to watch it. Lots of fun here.
