My Thoughts:
This is of course the sequel to Meet the Parents... a movie I always liked a lot. But it is the first time I ever got the chance to watch this one. While I did enjoy it.... I found it to be a good comedy... I don't think it is at the same level as Meet the Parents. It definitely didn't have as many laughs for me.... but there is a few in here. I did like Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand as Greg's parents.  Though I will admit that I was a bit worried when I saw them in the trailer. Not worried about the actors...  but more worried on how they did the characters, It seemed a little over the top to me. But once watching the movie I found I was concerned for nothing.  It seemed to work well for the movie. Basically I think if you enjoyed the first one... while not quite as good... you should enjoy this one as well.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Robin Hood (1973 Animated), a review by Dragonfire

Robin Hood

A long time ago, in a faraway land, legend tells an extraordinary tale of courage and friendship...

Get ready for swashbuckling adventure, unforgettable characters, memorable music and lots of laughs in Disney's Robin Hood, one of the most cherished animated films of all time.

Heroic Robin Hood--along with his trusted companion Little John and his devoted band of merry men--conjures up one famously funny and daring deed after another to outfox greedy Prince John and bring happiness to the residents of Sherwood Forest.

The Most Wanted Edition DVD also features a forest full of merriment with a never-before-seen alternate ending, all-new games and Disney Song Selection, plus a new digital transfer, 5.1 Surround Sound and much more!

My Thoughts

I decided to watch this one again for the first time in years.  I remember some parts from when I saw it years ago, but I had forgotten some things. 

The movie does have a different take on the legend of Robin Hood since the characters are animals.  It is a simpler version of the story that still works to be entertaining.  This movie is a good one to introduce kids to the character.  Some different things happen and there are also some things that have been in other movies with the character as well.  There is a bit of action in a few scenes from some archery and a few fights that do add a bit of action.  The animation is done well for when the movie was made, though of course, it isn't anywhere near what can be done with animation now.  The animation does have a slightly dated look, though I do think it has held up well overall.

I still enjoy this movie and think it is worth watching.

I did post a review on Epinions a few days ago.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom

     Superboy: Season One (1988/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

Warner Home Video (United States)
Length:558 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:English, French, Spanish

Plot:Daily Planet with a year's worth of headlines.

The production team whose big-screen spectacular revitalized live-action Superman adventures brings a live-action Boy of Steel to the small screen with 26 year-one episodes of the series that ran four heroic seasons. What emergency compelled Clark to emerge as Superboy? When did Clark/Superboy first encounter the green menace of Kryptonite? How did Lex Luthor lose his hair? The series has its own entertaining visions of key moments in the lore. So, enroll at Shuster U. Class is now in session.

1.01 The Jewel of the Technacal
Cast: John Haymes Newton (Clark Kent/Superboy), Stacy Haiduk (Lana Lang), Jim Calvert (T.J. White), Peter White (Professor Thomas Lang), Scott Wells (Lex Luthor), Michael Manno (Leo), Gregg Todd Davis (Haines), Forest Neal (Dean Thompson), Bob Barnes (Dr. Spencer)

This is the first episode which aired, though not the first one shot. I had enjoyed this season when I first watched it. Sadly no further seasons were ever released on DVD.


1.05 Countdown to Nowhere
Cast: John Haymes Newton (Clark Kent/Superboy), Stacy Haiduk (Lana Lang), Jim Calvert (T.J. White), Doug Barr (Roscoe Williams), Duriel Harris (Theodore), Noah Meeks (Miller), Fred Broderson (Detective), Jay Glick (Security Chief), Paul J. Darby (Radar Operator)

I decided that I would also watch this episode. This one was shot to be the pilot but it then aired as the fifth episode. In this episode, Superboy makes his first public appearance.
