The Flintstones:Yabba-dabba-doo it!

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

The 90s were a great time for Universal Studios. This was the time when they made some of their best movies, and Amblin was a name everyone knew would produce a hit movie. When Amblin took on Hanna-Barbera’s, The Flintstones, as a live action movie, somehow they knew they would produce a product that was pure family fun, and it remains so to this day. The formula for such a fun movie involves John Goodman as Fred Flintstone, and Rick Moranis as Barney Rubble. These hardworking cavemen would not be anywhere with there cute cavewoman wives, Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins) and Betty (Rosie O’Donnell). Pebbles (Elaine Silver, Melanie Silver) and strong boy Bamm-Bamm (Hlynur Sigur├░sson) and Dino add to the cuteness, we even get to meet nerdy boss, Mr. Slate (Dann Florek), Add the BC-52s (fun alternative party band, The B-52s) to your soundtrack, and you got a movie that is about as fun as it gets.

Mysterious Island (TV 2005 Miniseries)

This version of Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island by Echo Bridge is dubbed “The Most Thrilling Adventure Unknown To Man” by them on the DVD cover and in the promotional material as well. The miniseries does have some thrills but not as much as you would expect with the name Jules Verne in the title. While the show was entertaining and a good addition to any DVD collection it did have some drawbacks that had nothing to do with the story or main character acting. Most of the problems were with the special effects that were used in the film. You see volcano smoke that is not firmly anchored to the top of the mountings, the bottom of the smoke cloud kept moving around. While I understand that smoke does move it does not shift at the top of a hole when it is filling the entire hole. Something like that is not possible, not even in a fantasy setting. Also the blue/green screening was not well executed, the action being filmed was not tracked correctly by the special effects team. It is things like this that you need to try and forget when watching the film. Unfortunately they did a good job with the spiders, I really hate spiders. The rate was fair but the speed it was running did not match up with the landscape like it should and the snake was a bit too rubber looking but was better then the snakes that were seen in other films that we have reviewed.
