Rango-DVD-Cover-FrontA fantastic and fanciful tale, written by John Logan and directed by Gore Verbinski, of a once pet lizard that gets abandoned and lost in the desert. It truly is a film to keep on your shelf to see time and time again with all its inside jokes and wild action it is a film for everyone from children to adults. All who see this film, even if they don’t like it which is highly unlikely, will find something to smile about in this film. It is full of cautionary takes and common sense wisdom and presented in a way that makes you realize just what the film is telling you about the society that we and Rango live in.

Dudley Do-Right : A New Kind Of Hero

Dudley-Do-Right-1999-DVD-Cover-FrontSometimes Musings has to take a look back at some of the DVDs we’ve acquired over the years, and we might come across gems, and we might come across things like…. “When and why did we buy this?”

Such was the question when we found Dudley Do-Right in our stash. We do know why we bought it, simply because we were kids in the 60s when the old cartoon was part of the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Brendan Fraser has also just come from a great success with The Mummy just before this movie was released, and was soon becoming one of the actors we enjoyed seeing, so the nostalgia from the 60s cartoon and the 20s adventure story reeled us in. As many a confuzzled Aussie might say when seeing this film, “Oi!”

Maverick: In their hands, a deck of cards was the only thing more dangerous than a gun.

This is the tale of Bret Maverick (Mel Gibson), a charming gambling man who can hustle cards with the best of them, on land or sea, or in this case, the river. We find Bret in a very strange predicament. He is backwards on his horse in the desert with a noose around his neck, reflecting on how he got there. A few days before, he was on the hunt for the cash owed to him by a few friends on his way to a $25,000 entry fee, winner takes all poker tournament that is starting in St. Louis within the week. He runs into a nasty hombre, Angel (Alfred Molina), and his goons, but this would not be their only meeting. Bret goes to the bank to get the money owed him from the manager, Eugene. The bank is closed, so he goes to the saloon. There he joins a poker game in progress. The players are Angel, Southern Belle Mrs. Annabelle Bransford (Jodie Foster), Johnny Hardin (Max Perlich), and and few others. The players are not too trusting of Bret, so to make the game fair, he promises to lose for an hour. They all agree, and when the hour is up, Bret is on fire, and soon gets accused of cheating by Angel. Bret explains to everyone that he was learning their tells and signals during that losing hour. Angel is livid, and means to teach Bret a lesson. When they get outside, four other men accost them, and say that they have to give Bret a beat-down first. What Angel does not know is that Bret had a feeling he would be running into Angel again, so he set up this act to save his own butt. It cost him $100, but it was worth it, except that his good shirt has been soiled.
