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.

Monsters vs. Aliens: Supersonic Joyride

Monsters-vs-Aliens-Supersonic-Joyride-DVD-CoverIf you were lucky enough to see the original Monsters Vs. Aliens animated movie a few years ago, then you are in for a treat when you check out the TV series. Some things have changed since then. There are new aliens, Insectosaurus is no longer with the team, and Ginormica/Susan Murphy can control her size. Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd), Susan (Riki Lindhome), The Link(Deidrich Bader), and B.O.B.(Eric Edelstein) are still living over at Area 50-something under the command of General W. R. Monger( Kevin Michael Richardson).

Since the invasion of Gallaxhar, some new aliens have shown up. Some evil, some cute, and some just confused. There is the evil Coverton (Jeff Bennett), whom will take any suggestion and find a way to use it to manipulate someone into working through his next nefarious plan. The adorably cute, and extremely intelligent Sqweep (Haley Tju), whose inventions are amazing but still pretty much designed by a child. A tiny pink, Asuran-like alien child. Also there is Sta’abi(Gillian Jacobs), a female alien warrior whose race is so proud that they get offended by just about anything. Sta-abi also has a pet, Vornicarn (Fred Tatasciore), and this critter loves to eat and eat.

Godzilla (2014) The world ends, Godzilla begins

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi, Thriller by Cleave on

Godzilla-2014-Movie-PosterThis new and reimagined creature of Godzilla is a mastery of story telling and CGI combined. Gone is the rubber suit that made Toho famous. Now we have a monster that is more bear than cat. Even though more of the fights are CGI, the film still stays true to the feel of the battles that Toho made famous with the King of Monsters. Some might not like the new ‘Zilla but other than it being more bear like instead of cat like, I like the new beast and this reviewer feels that so will others, given a chance.

The film opens up with a backdrop of nuclear testing in the ’50s. Even the credits that roll are interesting if you actually read them before the redaction sequence. Ones like the examples here are quite amusing:

Reliability of these sightings is still questionable based on the character witness. One must ask, is “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO CO., LTD.

And another interesting one:
