The Alphabet Marathon: Blu-ray Edition
« on: January 02, 2016, 04:03:34 PM »
The Alphabet Marathon
Blu-ray Edition
I decided to do another alphabet marathon. This time only allowing myself to watch what I have on Blu-ray. Since going  back to work putting a time limit on marathons hasn't worked for me I will not put a time limit on this one. I will just continue it till I finish the marathon no matter how long it takes. And Yes I do have a number and every letter covered on blu-ray though I wish I had some more choices for the letter Q (only 2 Choices) and the letter Y (only 3 Choices).

But maybe by the time I get to those letters I will have some more choices! :P

     The Alphabet Killer (2008/)
IMDb |Trailer |Wikipedia |
Anchor Bay Entertainment (United States)
Director:Rob Schmidt
Writing:Tom Malloy (Writer)
Length:98 min.
Video:Widescreen 2.35:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 5.1
Subtitles:None

Stars:
Eliza Dushku as Megan Paige
Cary Elwes as Kenneth Shine
Timothy Hutton as Richard Ledge
Tom Malloy as Officer Steven Harper
Michael Ironside as Captain Nathan Norcross

Plot:
A ten year old girl is found brutally murdered outside the small blue-collar city of Rochester, New York, and obsessed police detective Megan Paige ( Eliza Duschku of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and DOLLHOUSE) suffers a mental breakdown while trying to solve the crime. But when the child-killings resume two years later, Megan's return to the investigation also brings back her own horrific hallucinations. Even if she can prove a 'double initial' connection to the slayings, will she hang onto her sanity long enough to catch a psychopath?

Extras:
  • NONE


My Thoughts:

The first thing I notice when I put in this blu-ray disc is that it is the most sparse I ever seen a blu-ray. There isn't even a menu let alone any extras! As soon as you pop in the disc the movie starts... and when I press the menu button I get the message "No Menu Available." Even when the movie was over it didn't have a menu to go to.... it just started the movie over again in a loop. This really surprised me, as I always liked the extras we get with our films. But I sit here telling myself it is the movie that is important. Though still feel a bit down about it.

The film itself...Well it seems this is another movie that I disagree with most reviewers on. When I decided to watch this movie I checked other reviews to see what others were saying about this movie. And I was surprised to see most people saying to skip this one. I personally enjoyed this one quite a bit. Loved Eliza Dushku in it... and found it to be a very interesting movie. Well worth the hour and a half I put into watching it. I also liked that this is based on a real serial killer. I would definitely recommend this one... though with caution after reading so many bad reviews. So I would recommend with that notation.

This is a film I enjoyed very much. Sure, just like many movies of this type it is predictable how it is going to end. But when it comes to this type of film... it is not about the ending. It is about the journey to get there. If you never seen this one I definitely recommend it. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

Extras:
  • Scene Access


My Thoughts:

This is the first time I am watching this sci-fi classic... but it comes highly recommended. And I must say... I did enjoy this one quite a bit. The story line kept my interest with ease and the cast did a great job. I was actually a little surprised to see Frances Bavier in this one as it is probably the only thing I have seen her do other then "The Andy Griffith Show" where she played Aunt Bea. Another film well worth the time to watch. You should check it out if you haven't done so yet.

Experience this heart-pounding adventure like never before through the magic of Blu-ray High Definition.

Extras:


    My Thoughts:

    This film I have mixed feelings for. On the one hand the visuals were gorgeous and the dogs were great. But on the other hand most of the cast could have done much better. Don't get me wrong... I found it worth the time put in to watch it. But it isn't one I will feel the need to rewatch often. It just felt like most the cast was phone it in on this one. And that did take a little away from the film.

    My Thoughts:

    I have been a fan of the Fantastic Four since watching the cartoon series from back in the '60s or '70s when I was a kid. Forgive me for using the obvious word here... but going by my memory of the show... I think they did a Fantastic job bringing the characters to life. I liked everyone in this movie. And that is saying something since this is the first (and so far only) thing I have seen that I actually like Julian McMahon in. But I thought he did a great job here. I think Chris Evans got The Human Torch dead on. Jessica Alba was awesome as Sue Storm (The Invisible Woman). I remember when I first heard they were doing this movie I was concerned how The Thing would look in the movie... but that impressed me as well. I think the origin story is both interesting and fun. And I loved the scene on the bridge where the team first came to be. This is one I would definitely recommend. I enjoyed every minute of it.

    My Thoughts:

    This is the third time I seen this movie... including watching it in the theater when it first opened. And I must say I loved it just as much on this viewing as I did previously. This is not a film if you are looking for some deep philosophical story-telling. This really is no more then a hilarious (yes I found it extremely funny!), fun, action packed sci-fi. It is a leave your brain at the door good time.... like all comic book films should be, IMHO. Rocket, the smart-ass intelligent weapon wielding raccoon stole the show! I absolutely loved that little guy! He was definitely my favorite character. Other then him I liked Groot... the living plant creature that hung around with Rocket. Though the entire group is great. An excellent fun film that I can't recommend high enough!

    My Thoughts:

    While I enjoy this one... I was expecting it to be better then it was from the trailer. It is an interesting concept. An idea I haven't seen before. But I feel the film didn't meet it's potential. For one thing I found I really didn't care about the main characters enough. I don't know if this is from the writing or from the fact that I never really cared for Justin Timberlake all that much. Over-all a decent movie. One I can see myself watching again... but not as often as some.

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.
