Mannequin-1987-DVD-CoverWhen it comes to 1980s romantic comedies, there were many, and most were quirky and fun, and Mannequin is no exception. We start in some time during the time of the Pharoahs, when Emat-rat-su (Kim Catrall) of Emmy for short is disappointed with the life choices her parents are setting her up with. They have come to a last resort in finding her a husband, and she is about to be matched to a camel dung dealer. Emmy makes a prayer to her gods to find her a way out, and she disappears right before her mother’s eyes and we are in a cartoon history of Emmy’s adventures through the ages as she looks for her destiny, in the guise of the cat goddess, Bastet.

Mr-Peabody-and-Sherman-2014-Movie-PosterIf you were lucky enough to catch any of the short cartoons made back in the 60s by Jay Ward Productions, like Rocky and Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-right, and various other iconic titles from the day, then you must have been looking forward to seeing Mr. Peabody in his own full length film, because he is far more interesting than Underdog. We learn about Mr. Peabody from the source, and how he became such a force of nature. This dog is a brainiac. A brilliant scientist, philosopher, athlete, and gourmand, there is pretty much nothing he can’t do, except find a family of his own. Things changed for him when he discovered a foundling child in a NYC alleyway. This child would become his adopted son, Sherman.

Night-At-The-Musium-Smithsonian-2009-DVD-Cover When the lights go off the battle is on! So it goes with the second installment of the tale of Larry Daley (Ben Stiller), a night guard for the Museum of Natural History in NYC, or so it seems. Things have taken off for Larry as he is now an inventor, and is making a big name fore himself in the infomercial game. He is pushing small items that have some practical uses, and is becoming quite successful. One day, he makes his way to the museum to see his nighttime friends, only to learn that the place is going high tech with electronic interactive exhibits, and that some of the older pieces are being sent to Washington D.C. They are to be stored at the Federal Archives at the Smithsonian Institute.

A-Simple-Wish-1997-Bluray-Front-CoverA simple tale of a child wish this is not. This film is a story of Anabel and her love for her father, Oliver. She wants nothing for herself other than that her father gets the role that he has always wanted so that they can stay in New York City. Her father would like nothing better than to do that both for himself and his kids. So, in between auditions for operatic roles he spends his time as a carriage driver in Central Park. The only thing, at least in this film, getting in his way is a inept and bumbling fairy godmother, named Murry?

The Wizard (1989) It’s more than a game…

The-Wizard-1989-Movie-PosterIt’s the chance of a lifetime, as the poster says. It is also true for this film about 3 youths that are on a quest to get to Video Armageddon so that they can win $50,000 dollars. The film is more than just that, as most films from the 80’s, it is about the growth of friendships, dealing with heartache and loss as well. This film comes from a time where everything happening was new and people actually reveled in having fun. The gaming industry was young and everything 8 bit was the coolest thing under the sun. The film also gave a big boost to Nintendo and Super Mario Bros. 3, that was released after the move showed in the States. In all it was a fun film for kids and the parents that wondered what their children were doing all the time on that grey box hooked up to the TV.
