August Movie Marathon: Disney Channel Original Movies
« on: August 01, 2016, 08:02:00 PM »


Yes... I admit it... I have found that I really enjoy the Disney Channel Original Movies. I know they are more for the younger crowd... but I don't care I still enjoy them probably more then I should. So when I decided last month that I wanted to do this marathon I started to collect more of them. Sadly most of them are only on DVD...not blu-ray. And while I don't have that many... between my collection, Netflix and Amazon Prime I should be able to find enough to do a decent marathon

And suddenly, Abby's every wish is instantly granted: the cherry-red sports car, the way-cool clothes, the uber-popularity at school.

I would say it is worth the time put in to watch it... but don't expect too much.

My Thoughts:

I like the way they did this DVD... because not only is the reunion film on this disc, but also the 2 part series finale to remind us what happened at the end of the series.

 As for the film itself, once again we enjoyed every minute of it. The entire Russo family returns except for one. That being older brother Justin. Once again this is a fun story for the entire family. But I recommend watching the series before watching the films.

The sequel to Johnny Tsunami. This one starts out a bit on the slow side... so the first quarter of the film I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy it. But as the story went on and more of the extreme sports was shown the more I got into it. Turned out it had a very good story and a lot of fun to watch. Found myself wishing I could try some of the things in this film... but I know full well at my age my body just couldn't take it... I would end up killing myself.

     The Parent Trap II (1986/United States)

Stars:
Hayley Mills as Sharon Ferris/Susan
Tom Skerritt as Bill Grand
Carrie Kei Heim as Nikki Ferris
Bridgette Andersen as Mary Grand
Alex Harvey as Brian

Plot:
First time on DVD! In the full-length sequel The Parent Trap II, Hayley Mills returns to reprise her roles as identical twins Sharon and Susan. Now all grown up, Sharon is a single mom whose 11-year-old daughter Nikki is just as mischievous as she was! During summer school Nikki and her new friend Mary turn into scheming matchmakers when they try to get Sharon and Mary's widowed father together. Not quite able to make it happen, they turn to the one person who can really help — Sharon's twin Susan!

Extras:
  • Scene Access
  • Bonus Trailers
  • Closed Captioned


My Thoughts:

Going by the plot for this one I will admit I was a bit concerned. But I have to say... I enjoyed every minute of it! I really enjoyed the story... and it had several laugh out loud moments for me. I was glad to see this one being Sharon and Susan grown up and getting involved with switching instead of them trying to do the same (or similar) thing with their kids this time. I also liked that they were able to get the same actress to play Sharon and Susan. I also liked that Tom Skerritt is in this movie. I have slowly become a fan of his over the last few years. It is a pleasant surprise that I liked this one almost... if not as much as the first part.
