This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, DVD, Videos & Movies, Thriller by Snowfoxx on

This early 90s picture was made during the waning days of the Cold War, but it is set in a time when we were still on high alert. In 1984, the Soviet Union was still very strong, and nuclear subs on both sides of the world had to power to level cities. This is based on one of the very successful books in the Tom Clancy Jack Ryan series. In this story, Jack (Alec Baldwin) is working for the CIA as a consultant as his wife (Gates McFadden) works through her residency in London. At this time, a new wold has been put to sea out of Polijarny Inlet, and she is the Red October. Her captain is Marko Ramius (Sean Connery), and he has an agenda. it is up to Jack Ryan to find out what an old sea dog like Ramius could be up to with that much nuclear power in his hands, and why the best of the Soviet Fleet has been sent out of Leningrad and other major ports in the nation to hunt down this amazing sub with a magnetohydrodynamic drive that makes it run virtually silent.

The Three Musketeers: All for one and one for all!

This entry was posted in Action, Adventure, Comedy, DVD, Videos & Movies, Epics by Snowfoxx on

This 1993 epic based on the Alexander Dumas novel of the same title is a fun, swashbuckling adventure featuring some of the better known talents of the time. it pretty much follows the Dumas storyline, but the talents of the players make it come to life even more so. It is a cast of characters suited well to the parts, and there is some fun comic relief that comes from most everyone. Most everyone knows how the story goes, but with the addition of a slight backstory on D’Artagnan at the beginning of the story, the pursuit of one family to avenge their sister’s honour goes on throughout the film, and the chase never really seems to end.

McHale’s Navy: He’s Under Siege and Out-of-Control.

This is a movie remake of a very popular TV series from the early 1960s. While the show was set at a Navy base in the Pacific, this movie is in the fictional San Ysidro Islands in the Caribbean. Retired Lt. Cmdr. Quinton McHale (Tom Arnold) is enjoying his days in the sunny tropics by supplying the local and the sailors at the San Ysidro base with various items like homebrew, ice cream, and pin-up calenders. McHale lives on what seems to be more of a cay on his own with some farm animals, but all the locals love him, and the sailors can’t get enough of his “contraband” items. Well, things are about to change in San Ysidro, and not for the better. The pomopus Capt. Wallace B. Binghampton (Dean Stockwell) is coming to take over the base, along with his assistant, Lt. Penelope Carpenter (Debra Messing). Things are going to have to tighten up for the men at San Sid. The biggest goofballs in the U.S. Navy have been stationed here. The anal-retentive Ensign Charles Parker (David Alan Grier), ladies’ man Virgil (Bruce Campbell), electronics-hacking good ol’ boy Willie (Henry Cho), the big dumb jock Christy (Brian Haley), sly and sneaky Gruber (Danton Stone), and the biggest goofball to ever enlist, Happy (French Stewart).

The Color of Magic

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

This fun, fantastical story set on the flat planet of Discworld is like none other. The most unlikely of characters meet up in very unusual ways. We have a tourist from a land based on science and technology, Twoflower (Sean Astin), and a washed-up wizardry student, Rincewind (David Jason) from Ankh-Morpork’s Unseen University of Wizardry who has been cursed by a very evil and dangerous spellbook called the Octavo. Add in an overly-ambitious wizard, Trymon (Tim Curry) looking to kill his way to the top, and some other legendary characters borrowed from other stories and given a new sort of life on Discworld, and you have over three hours of great adventure put together in such a great way, you really don’t want the journey of Twoflower and Rincewind to end.

The Making of the “The Cat Returns”

Since The Cat Returns is one of our most popular posts, we thought you might like a little insight into the one movie that every cat love must own. Much of this documentary is in Japanese, but don’t worry, there are no subtitles, as translators do the voice overs for us. We meet with the master movie maker, Hayao Miyazaki, who has at least 10 movies on the IMDB top 250, and what prompted this story. In actuality, The Cat Returns is a spin-off from an earlier Studio Ghibli movie, “Whisper of the Heart“. In that story, a teen girl finds inspiration to follow her heart from Baron Humbert von Gikkingen, a dapper cat with a diplomatic manner and clever wit. We go in all kinds of directions while seeing how this movie was made, from interviews with the director, producer, and Japanese voice actors. We even meet the big stray cat that is the body model for Muta. This cat is a stray that lives at the studio, and she struts around the area like she owns the place. Everyone there likes her, so maybe she does. One endearing an funny clip features just about everyone on the staff at Ghibli, from the actors to the editors to the cleaning crew, coming into to make “cat calls” for the scene where the cats have their procession to Haru’s house. We even get to watch as they produce the music, and enjoy as we hear and watch the cute Ayano Tsuji sing the opening theme song “Kaze Ni Naru” with only her ukelele as an accompaniment.
