Hello-Dolly-1969-EU-DVD-CoverSome days, you just need to step back into some nostalgia when things aren’t going so well, and after receiving some disturbing news, which might not be so disturbing, after all, you need to kick back with an old movie. This was in our collection, and hadn’t made it to Musings as of yet, so we thought we’d give it a try.

This is a tale of Americana in the 1890s, not in the Wild West, but in New York City and an upstate Hudson River town, Yonkers. Dolly Levi (Barbra Streisand) is the ultimate yenta, and she can arrange just about everything from dates and marriages to dance lessons, but as she is widowed, she has a bit more freedom than single or married women do, and she uses this to her advantage. She is also getting a bit lonely and has an itch to find a new husband. This begins her campaign to snag a “well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire” from Yonkers, Horace Vandergelder (Walter Matthau).

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…

H.G. Wells – The Time Machine (2002) – Where Would You Go?

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

Movies have always looked to attract audiences with the thrill of time travel but they usually do not get it right. Most times the plots are so far fetched that they are doomed right from the start and they would need a time machine just to fix what they screwed up to begin with. In this version from 2002 Dreamworks and director Simon Wells,who is the great-grandson of the original author of the book The Time Machine, they seem to get it right. They bring to the screen the charm, the pain and the thrill that H.G. Wells envisioned with a bit of modernness to update it for our time. This is one of the best time travel films to hit the big screen and a fitting remembrance of the author H.G. Wells.
