Within My Lifetime: 2016 Edition
« on: January 02, 2016, 04:14:04 PM »


Within My Lifetime Marathon
Last year I attempted this marathon and it was a complete and total failure! I think part of what happen was psyching myself out by trying to do both movies and TV show pilots. So this time I am going back to just movies spanning from 1969 to 2016. If any movies from other marathons I am doing also works for this marathon it will count for both marathons and I will provide a link in this one to the other thread.

Hopefully this way I will actually complete the marathon this year... wish me luck!

My Thoughts:

I been wanting to see this one every since I first heard they were making a sequel.... as I enjoyed the first one so much. And I must say... while I enjoy the first one a little more... I really liked this one as well. Lots of laugh out loud moments with many (if not all) the characters from the first movie. I can see myself watching a Hotel Transylvania double feature often! It is a must see if you liked the fist one.

My Thoughts:

We watched this one last night. Before then I never even knew of this version of the film. I must say I enjoyed it quite a bit. The film looked great and the cast did a really good job. The story kept my interest with ease. This is one I would recommend seeing.

Stars:

Get ready for a gut-busting, outrageous comedy from the guys that created Shaun of the Dead. Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) is a big-city cop who can't be stopped - but he's making everyone else on the force look bad. When he is reassigned to a small, quiet town, he struggles with this new, seemingly idyllic world and his bumbling partner (Nick Frost). But their dull existence is interrupted by several grisly and suspicious accidents, and the crime-fighting duo turn up the heat and hand out high-octane, car-chasing, gun-fighting, big-city justice in this hilarious hit critics are calling "Outrageous! Uproariously funny!" (Thelma Adams, US WEEKLY).

Extras:


    My Thoughts:

    Friends has been recommending this film to me for years... and I finally got around to watching it. I found the movie to be entertaining to say the least, There is a lot of funny stuff here. Some of it on the silly side but that was to be expected going in,,, and it wasn't overly so, It did surprise me a bit to see some graphic violence here... and even that was done in a funny way. Definitely worth checking out if you never seen it. Can easily see myself watching it again.

         Category 6: Day of Destruction (2004/United States)
    IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
    Lions Gate Home Entertainment (United States)
    Director:Dick Lowry
    Writing:Matt Dorff (Writer)
    Length:173 min.
    Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
    Audio:English: Dolby Digital: 2-Channel Stereo
    Subtitles:

    Stars:
    Thomas Gibson as Mitch Benson
    Nancy McKeon as Amy Harkin
    Chandra West as Rebecca Kerns
    Brian Markinson as Chris Haywood
    Nancy Sakovich as Jane Benson

    Plot:
    Nature strikes out with unfathomable fury as the unimaginable becomes a terrifying reality. Three twisters descend upon Las Vegas leaving a neon wasteland in their wake. Hurricanes tear through the Gulf Coast without warning. Record-high temperatures scorch the northeast. One-hundred-mile-an-hour winds tear across the south. Lightning storms ignite the sky. Wildfires blaze out of control. For Amy Harkin, a budding Chicago anchorwoman looking for her big break, the fear of these weather anomalies is second only to the dread of the inevitable repercussions: rolling coast-to-coast blackouts and the dwindling sources needed to revive them. With the worst power breakdown on record looming, an overload could cripple the nation and leave the entire population in the dark, without communication and vulnerable to unthinkable dangers.

    Extras:
    • Scene Access
    • Bonus Trailers
    • Closed Captioned


    My Thoughts:

    This is a TV miniseries... and as it is with most tv movies and miniseries there is some familiar faces from other Television shows in it. In this case we have Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg) and Nancy McKdon (The Facts of Life). It is a good story and I definitely enjoyed it. But that being said it could definitely been better. I found that while some of the storm effects were cool... others was really lacking. I also found I just didn't care about some of the characters. But over all it is worth the watch. This one did get a sequel miniseries (Category 7: End of the World) which I enjoyed even more then this one.

    Deadpool
    This is the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

    My Thoughts:
    First of all let me say this one is not for the younger crowd. From what I understand if it wasn't for a few cuts here and there it would have gotten an NC-17... but they trimmed it down to get a (hard) R rating. That being said... I loved this film! while I have seen him before... I never really been that familiar with the character. So I don't know how well he was done compared to the comics... but they made him a great character here. Loved the action.... loved the violence... loved his sense of humor. It is definitely worth the time put in to watch it! Highly recommended!

    I saw Deadpool last week and quite enjoyed it myself. Noticing some superhero fatigue on my part, I was not blown away by it, but it was a very strong film in the genre. I also did not Deadpool before, other than the basic premise (self-aware comic book character).

    From what I understand if it wasn't for a few cuts here and there it would have gotten an NC-17... but they trimmed it down to get a (hard) R rating.
    I was not aware of this. Assuming you are right, I really hope for an unrated Blu-ray...

         History of the World: Part I (1981/United States)
    IMDb |Wikipedia |Trailer |
    Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment (United States)
    Director:Mel Brooks
    Writing:Mel Brooks (Writer)
    Length:92 min.
    Video:Widescreen 2.35:1
    Audio:English: DTS-HD Master Audio: 5.1, English: Dolby Digital: Mono, French: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Spanish: Dolby Digital: 5.1, Portuguese: Dolby Digital: 5.1
    Subtitles:Chinese, English, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish

    Stars:
    Mel Brooks as Moses / Comicus / Torquemada
    Mel Brooks as Jacques / King Louis XVI
    Dom DeLuise as Emperor Nero
    Madeline Kahn as Empress Nympho
    Harvey Korman as Count de Monet

    Plot:
    Mel Brooks' uproarious version of history proves that nothing is sacred as he takes us on a laugh-filled look at what really happened throughout time. His delirious romp features everything from a wild send-up of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey to the real stories behind the Roman Empire (Brooks portrays a stand-up philosopher at Caesar's Palace), the French Revolution (Brooks reigns as King Louis XVI) and the Spanish Inquisition (a splashy song-and-dance number with monks and swimming nuns). It's Mel and company at their hilarious best.

    Extras:
    • Scene Access
    • Feature Trailers
    • Bonus Trailers
    • Featurettes
    • Trivia Track


    My Thoughts:

    It has been such a very long time since I seen this film. All I remembered was that I enjoyed it when I was a teen. And that remains true today. Lots to laugh at... and a good handful of actors that I haven't seen in ages. This is definitely worth a re-watch... if for no other reason then to remind yourself why "It's good to be the king!"
