This was a fun watch... Haven't seen it since I was a kid. I of course got a kick out of the characters played by Don Knotts and Tim Conway. But the rest of the cast was good too. A nicer blast from the past. Looking forward to watching some more of the films I remember from the "Wonderful World of Disney" line-up.

My Thoughts:

After watching this film I couldn't decide if I wanted to give this film a 3.5 or a 4 star rating as I enjoyed it so much. I really liked the story line but I also liked the fact that there is several familiar faces in it. There is Michael Clarke Duncan, Neal McDonough and of course Kristin Kreuk of Smallville fame in the lead role. This is the first role I seen Kristin Kreuk in that I didn't automatically think "hey, it's Lana!" Which says to me she did a good job in it. Either way, definitely a good and fun film well worth the time put in to watch it.

My Thoughts:

I remember the first time I ever seen this. I was in my early to mid teens... and one of the teachers I had showed this film on the last day of school. And while I enjoyed it on that first viewing... watching it as an adult with a new perspective and more refined taste in film I get much more enjoyment from it. Great cast, wonderful visuals and non-stop adventure. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

This turned out to be an interesting film. Though it did start out a bit on the slow side. It did build up to keep my interest. I must say this is different then any other William Castle film I have seen before. Worth the time put in to watch it. But I am not sure how much re-watch value it has.

My Thoughts:

The animation/visuals on this film is outstanding... among the very best I have ever seen. The story line is very good. It kept me entertained throughout with ease. The problem I had with this film? I never cared for the characters. Not in the old animated TV series and not in this film. With that said I do consider this film to be above average and well worth checking out at least once.

    My Thoughts:

    What can I say about this one? 15 minutes in and I am like where is the hunter? I am in cuteness overload here. Forget the mother... Shoot Bambi! Just too much cuteness. This film is just not made for the adult male. I will say it did improve for me some about the half way point on. This is not one I see myself watching often.

    This is the first time I ever seen Toby Mcguire in anything other then Spider-Man.... so for most of the movie I was seeing Peter Parker on horseback.

While it is a rather long film it is well worth the time put in to watch it. Definitely recommended.

    Watching this one I am not sure if I seen it before or not. Some parts of it looked very familiar to me.... where others did not. I heard this film has a reputation of being bad. I just don't see how. I thought it had a good story... some great action... and a lot of big names. Felt like it was done well to me. Even if it was a little on the predictable side. I think it is definitely worth the time put in to watch it.

    My Thoughts:

    While this film is loaded with a lot of really good action, it really didn't have much more then that. The story line started out good and interesting. I thought it was going to keep my interest with ease. Unfortunately about half way through the story lost something for me... and I started watching the clock and wondering when the film would finally end. What I guess I am saying... this film has great action sequences but it needs a better story to back it up.

Laurence Olivier received an Academy Award® nomination for his chilling portrayal of the sadistic Szell, who turns dental instruments into tools of torture with dispassionate ease.

    My Thoughts:

    This is a film that people have been telling me for years that I have to see it... but for some reason... even though I have it in my collection... I have been putting it off and putting it off. I am not even sure why. While I did enjoy this one... I was really expecting more from it. I found it to be a little on the slow side for my taste. And while there was some good cast here... I found it hard to really care about the characters. I don't know... maybe I wasn't in the right mood for it and I will like it more on another viewing.

    My Thoughts:

    I found this one to be a right cute film. While it is definitely geared more to the younger teen crowd I found it to entertain. There is a few decent chuckles in it. I definitely can think of worse ways to waste an hour and a half. If you like shows like buddies movies then this one won't disappoint.
