Review: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1This is one hell of a film and is the perfect start to the end of the series. Would be nice if there was more to the stories but what we have is great indeed. The director David Yates did a wonderful job portraying all of the troubles and danger that is shown in the book as Harry and his friends Ron and Hermione start looking for a way to get rid of Tom Riddle, aka Lord Voldemort permanently. You are kept on your toes as you wonder what is going to happen to them next.

While I am a fan of Chris Columbus’ version of the first 2 films this rendition of book 7 is a real treat. We don’t get all the gritty blackness that we has with some of the other films. Yates’ renditions just keep getting better and better. We don’t have bad sound to make it more mysterious. What we have is actual true colors that you would see and not just filtered scenes. You get to actually see the acting that is being done by this wonderful cast of characters and actors. Emma, Daniel and Rupert are wonderful in these roles and this film shows that.

Review: How To Train Your Dragon

How To Train Your DragonI 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.

Review: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is one of my more favorite films. With Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain in it why wouldn’t it be. It also stars Naseeruddin Shah as Captain Nemo, Peta Wilson as Mina Harker, Tony Curran as Rodney Skinner (An Invisible Man), Stuart Townsend as Dorian Gray, Shane West as Tom Sawyer and Jason Flemyng as Dr. Henry Jekyll. To be honest I don’t remember seeing any of the other actors till I saw LXG, but then I actually had to look up the names, all except Connery, for this review. I know I have seen this film at least half a dozen times or more and is definitely one of the films I am always re-watching.

Review: Prince Of Persia Movie

Jake Gyllenhaal from the prince of persia posterJust watched this film and it was great seeing the game that I originally saw played on the Apple II. I could have swore there was a Commodore64 version but couldn’t find a reference to it but that was over 20 years ago, but I did play the game before. It was a fun game then and from what I have seen of my son playing some of the newer versions, it is still a fun game. But this review is about the movie and not the game, just giving a pit of insight is all.

Any way, the film is great. It has Destan being played Jake Gyllenhaal who was the real lead of The Day After Tomorrow in my opinion as he was the one stuck in NY City. This is a film about how the prince came to be and his humble origins. You see he was not born a prince but was made a prince by the king of Persia just for standing up and doing what was right. The king saw it and after finding out that he was an orphan the king adopted him as his own. That is how he came to be a prince of Persia and as he had no royal blood, a safe son as he would not have designs on the throne.

Review: Dragon Wars

This entry was posted in DVD, Videos & Movies, Fantasy by Cleave on

Recently I watched Dragon Wars for about the 5th time. OK it was the 3rd time but I think I will watch it a few more times. I know that I will. It is that good. I would recommend it to anyone that loves high legend and classic good versus evil films.

The story is about 2 ancient serpents, Imoogi and Buraki, who both want to become celestial dragons. Imoogi is actually promised to be the one who will be the next celestial dragon but Buraki is out to stop that from happening. The interesting thing is that Imoogi doesn’t even join the fight until near the end, it is the humans that do most of the battling against the evil serpent under the guidance of 2 individuals that have been sent down by the celestial courts. It is their duty to make sure that the Imoogi and not Buraki to receive the Yeouijoo to become a celestial dragon. In ledgeond the Yeouijoo was a perl but fearing that evil would find and possess it the Heavens sent the Yeouijoo to earth in the form of a child. The Yeouijoo would not be complete until that child reached their 20th birthday.
