I just finished watching How To Train Your Dragon and the accompanying DVD Legend Of The BoneKnapper Dragon. Let me tell you, if you get a chance to see them you are in for a wild ride that you will want to ride again and again. I laughed, I cried, at times I was on the edge of my seat in suspense. This film has it all and you are sure to be entertained. Even better it is a movie that the whole family can watch together. If you do watch it with your family you won’t have to worry about them seeing you cry because they will be crying right along with you.

Jackie Chan starred in the Walt Disney classic Around The World In 80 Days. This is by far one of the best Around The World In 80 Days films to date. At least that is what I feel. It gives so much more to the characters and they are not dry or dull like in previous incarnations of films with the same name. If Jules Verne saw this version I think that he would instantly fall in love with it. This one is definitely a family classic that will be enjoyed by generations to come.
With that said, I would have to rate Arnold Schwarzenegger’s portrayal of Prince Hapi as a scene that would have been better off left on the cutting room floor. The guy is a great actor in his own right, but as this one character it just didn’t work right. It seemed forced and thrown in at the last minute to boost ratings or something. Remember, that is my opinion and may not be what actually happened, it just feels that way. Read more...(578 words, 1 image, estimated 2:19 mins reading time)
The Karate Kid staring Ralph Macchio and Noriyuki Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi. It is one hell of a film and I am glad to hear that they have cast Jackie Chan as the next instructor for The Karate Kid. Pats performance in all of the Katate Kid films is just fantastic. He portrays a war hero from WWII who won the Medal Of Honor for fighting for the United States against Germany. That is just a bit of his back story. Much much more is explained about him past in successful films, but since this review is about the one film, I will leave here only what is known from the first film.
