quest_for_camelot_front_largeIt 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.

Red Riding Hood (2011) Believe the legend. Beware the wolf

This horror mystery is not like the fairy tale that you grew up on. This is what the tale could have been based on, even the tale of Peter and the Wolf. This film sets the tone perfectly from the beginning. It pulls you into a world that seems real and believable and keeps you guessing what is going to happen next all the way to the end. The film also looks are various stereo types and how they have been seen throughout history and why people see them that way. This is a story that wont let you go, not even when the film ends, but that is a good thing with this film.

Planet 51: Right stuff. Wrong planet.

This entry was posted in Adventure, Animated, Comedy, DVD, Videos & Movies, Family by Snowfoxx on

With a cute bit of cultural turnaround, Sony Pictures takes us to Planet 51. To the very cute green people of Planet 51, they are living the dream in their own version of the 1950s, driving around in bubble-shaped hover cars, listening to Doo-wop music, and having cookouts on their lawns. It’s all very much a Jetsons kind of world, but it isn’t ours. With the 1950s, came lots of paranoia, and our own North American culture was rather xenophobic, and now we get to see how silly we were back then by looking through alien eyes.

Our focus is on one particular alien teenager, Lem (Justin Long). He’s a bright kid, sort of awkward. He has a crush on the girl next door, Neera (Jessica Biel), and is working part-time at the local planetarium while pursuing his dreams to become an astronomer. His best buddies are his nerdy friend, Skiff, (Seann William Scott) and his little brother, Eckle (Freddie Benedict). Right now his biggest challenges in life are getting Neera to notice him, making sure the resident town hippie, Glar (Alan Marriott) stays away from Neera, and keeping the elementary school kids interested when they come to the planetarium on their field trips. What he does not know is that the biggest thing to ever hit his planet is about to take over his existence.

The Fifth Element

250 years in the future, all will be lost unless the fifth element is found. This movie was another of Luc Besson’s triumphs, and it mots of great things going for it. It was the big debuts for the talents of the lovely Milla Jovovich and the fun-loving silliness of Chris Tucker. These newcomers were joined by veterans of many genres, Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, and Ian Holm, along with other supporting cast members that many film-watchers will recognise. So on with this colourful story…

Lost In Space (1998) Danger Will Robinson

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Sci-Fi by Cleave on

There was once a time when films were meant to entertain and amuse us and we didn’t really care about the science that was behind the film. The unbelievable was the norm and we just loved it. Unfortunately Lost In Space was made when critics and the masses lead by the nose thought that if the science didn’t add up then it was a crap film. Who cares if the science is right if the film is awesome and entertaining. Yes, I said awesome and this film does fall into that category. It is entertaining, full of action and definitely not as dull as the TV show was. Don’t get me wrong, the TV show was great for its time but compare it to the film and it is just 1950’s put the women in their place drivel and dull. This film was updated for the times which gave it an all new charm that just didn’t get the play that it should have. When you have reviewers being hard nosed critics and crying that it wasn’t like the original then it is time just to go crawl in a hole and I don’t give a damn what Plinkett might say about any film. This film does have merit and is fun to watch and I am damn glad they tossed out the 50’s mentality of the old show.
