It was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight in particular. Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman) has become greedy, and looks to take Arthur’s land for himself. To do this, he must obtain Excalibur, and after attacking Arthur to steal it, Sir Lionel is caught between them and takes a fatal wound. Ruber succeeds in getting the blade, and gives it to his hench-creature? Griffin (Bronson Pinchot) to fly back to his keep for safe-keeping. Read more...

A film that didn’t get enough attention as it deserved was Irish Jam. It is a funny film with lots of laughs, mismatched loves and a new love of Ireland, even if it was filmed in Cornwall. This film will have you wanting to be a bit green with Irish even if you don’t want to be. The town of Ballywood, Ireland is about to be repossessed and the community needs to find some help. The only place that isn’t mortgaged is that of the local pup, Finnigan’s. Its their ace in the hole, maybe their only way out, it is something that they can actually use. With the pup as backing they have ads posted in news papers in the United States for a contest. Send a poem and 5 dollars to Ballywood and have a chance to win a authentic Irish Pub. Actually a sound strategy when you have not other choice to save a town. Read more... (897 words, 53 images, estimated 3:35 mins reading time)
I went into this new cult classic movie knowing it would be campy. Low budget and British, but after watching Dr. Who for decades before the reboot of the series, I sort of got used to that set up. While BBC and ITV are now giving many of their series bigger budgets to work with, Wibbell Productions took this old formulae and made a pretty decent comedy horror movie about a vampiric noblewoman living on the remote Bloody Island, off the coast of Cornwall that wishes to see the sun again after living in darkness for four hundred years. Morticia de’Ath (Pamela Kempthorne) has a plan to bring someone to Bloody Island that will make this wish come true. This person is the bumbling, clumsy Susan Swallows (Pamela Kempthorne), a sales representative for a soft drinks company. Wibbell soft drinks has had a slump in sales, and Susan is about ready to be fired for all the stupid mistakes she has made. In a test to keep her job, the boss sends to Cornwall to sell of a few cases of some garlic-flavoured soda. Maybe this is why Wibbell sales have slumped. Their flavours are just nasty, but not as nasty as the monsters and undead that live on Bloody Island. Read more... (491 words, 50 images, estimated 1:58 mins reading time)
