The Last Unicorn, a review by Danae Cassandra

The Last Unicorn
Year of Release: 1982
Directed By: Jules Bass, Arthur Rankin Jr.
Starring: Alan Arkin, Jeff Bridges, Mia Farrow, Tammy Grimes, Robert Klein, Angela Lansbury, Christopher Lee
Genre: Fantasy, Musical, Animation

Overview:The Last Unicorn will reignite the hearts of its fans and entrance all who enter.

My Thoughts:
I adore this film. I've loved it since I first saw it as a child and I love it still. Yes, there is a certain nostalgia factor to this, but there are things we love as children that don't hold up as adults (the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon comes to mind). This does. It speaks to me now just as much as it did in the 80's. It has wonderful songs provided by America, and characters that are unique. I love both the tragic love story, and the one that isn't ... and that those who end happily aren't the beautiful people. It's a story of love, heroism, selfishness and sacrifice. It's also pretty true to Beagle's book, which I would highly recommend as well.

For me, this is a nigh-perfect film, and a long-time personal favorite.  I know it isn't truly a 5-star film, but I don't see it as anything less.

Bechdel Test: Pass
Mako Mori Test: Pass

Overall: 5/5

Cop Out, a review by addicted2dvd

     Cop Out: Rock Out with Your Glock Out Edition (2010/United States)

Bruce Willis as Jimmy

Action star Bruce Willis and ace comic Tracy Morgan play bickering-but-got-your-back Brooklyn buddy cops. Kevin Smith (Clerks, Chasing Amy) directs the gritty, goofball goings-on as the guys hunt for a stolen 1952 mint-condition baseball card, a hunt plunging them into a gunslinging war with a deadly drug ring. Batter up, fans. The boys are ready to take you out to the ol' brawl game!

My Thoughts:

This is a film I never even heard of before finding the blu-ray. I must say... I enjoyed it quite a bit. Kevin Smith directing an action-comedy. So that means lots of fun and laughs. Though I must admit that I was never much of a Tracy Morgan fan... I didn't mind him in this one at all. And I really liked both Bruce Willis and Seann William Scott. And being a Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan it was fun to see the small part that Michelle Trachtenberg had as Bruce Willis' daughter. This is one I definitely recommend... the storyline is both fun and action packed. The entire cast did a fine job... well worth the time put in to watch it.

Pete's Pilots, a review by addicted2dvd

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible Hulk (Pilot)
In this thrilling two- hour movie, Dr. David Banner inadvertantly exposes himself to a high amount of gamma radiation and is horrified to discover that in moments of frustration and anger he is transformed into the incredibly powerful Hulk. Susan Sullivan guest stars.

My Thoughts:
This was always one of my favorite shows at the time it originally aired. I still enjoy it very much. I like this origin story they made... even if it don't stay accurate to the comics.  At this point I have the first 2 seasons as well as all the TV movies in my collection. But I do hope to get the final 3 seasons eventually.

My Rating:
