Best Movie This is REALLY tough for me because I actually like them all. Let’s do a breakdown starting with
Night of the Living Dead–yeah it’s old,campy,cheesy and some bad acting but this movie was a little bit scary when I saw. I was younger then but,it changed the way horror films where made back then. There have been tons of wannabe zombie movies since then, even remakes that this film set the tone for. You can’t beat the 80’s zombies, I mean take a good look at Thriller by MJ. He set the tone for music videos which in turn made music videos something to be watched and not just listening to the songs,his zombies were fantastic!

Raising Arizona–yes Nicholas Cage can be funny,at least he was in this movie. He might look a little weird sometimes and I am still trying to get over the fact that he named his son “Kal-El”, Superman’s Kryptonian name(yes I am a Superman fan). Classic comedy two near-do-wells trying to make do with what they have Holly Hunter and Nicholas Cage did a fantastic job. With quotes like,”Biology and prejudices of others conspired to keep us childless” and “You mean you busted out of jail? No ma’am,we released ourselves on our own recognizance. What Evelle is trying to say is that the institution had nothing to offer us anymore”, how could you NOT like this movie?!? Yes. I have seen it quite a few times.

Ghostbusters–The one and only ghost themed movie that isn’t really a scary,gruesome flick. It has mostly comedic elements, classic 80’s stars and a hit song,what more do you want?

Some Like It Hot–One of only two Marilyn Monroe movies I’ve seen the other being “The Seven Year Itch”. I have always heard that she wasn’t a very good actress and it was her looks that got her by and that may very well be true but I thought she was good enough in this movie and it was good for what it was. I don’t think she was wanting an Oscar nomination well,I don’t know that but the movie was interesting and it kept my attention and it did well. It might’ve been then “I wanna be loved by you” song she sang in it…

Men In Black–who would’ve thought that, two men trying to keep the world and New York safe from aliens would be so entertaining. Will Smith has very few flops and this wasn’t one of them. The had some memorable performances from some notable actors Tony Shalhoub,the pawn shop owner, Vincent D’Onoforio as Ed who eats the farmer and Rip Torn as Chief Zed. This movie was funny and had great action scenes. Of course, Will gave us a hit song with a catchy line. Do we expect anything less from him?

Best Television Show (scripted)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer– this started my love and obsession with supernatural shows. From this, I have grown to like Charmed, Angel and Joss Whedon, the creator. Buffy inspired a generation of ass-kicking chicks that can go to school,have a life and save the world at the same time. Who said we couldn’t multi-task? Not too sure on the supernatural relationship tho,seems like way to much heartache,you know people from past relationships from the 1800’s,traumatizing to say the least. But Buffy is and will always be a great scripted show in my eyes. The storylines were great. The cast looked great but ,most of all the action was never disappointing!

Best Unscripted Television Show
The Biggest Loser

Toss your remote: Is cable and satellite TV becoming obsolete?

In today’s time of recession and economic whoas, things like cable and satellite are becoming something of a luxury that is NOT, needed anymore. I personally have been watching TV on the internet since my freshman year in college. Granted, it just started back then(which wasn’t very long ago) but it has completely advanced since then. I started with what is called an ed2k client and links. The links are used to denote files stored on a P2P network. The main client used is eMule. The typical ed2k link includes the filename and file size and looks like this
ed2k://|file|Christmas.with.the.Kranks.(2004).DVDRip.XviD-HLS.avi|730662912|CFF040F95CBB6113E789B4DE8FC124BF|/

Typically,you go to a p2p site,search for a tv show,movie or software you would like to download,click on it and it will open up in the eMule client and start downloading. Now, in my experience, this takes a much longer time to download. Through my efforts, trial and error I came upon torrents. Torrents,in my opinion, are smaller files that can be downloaded to a torrent client, in a shorter time frame. Check this out about Torrents. There are MANY torrent sites and torrent clients. I chose uTorrent because it’s not a space hog. You can go through the list and find which ones you like and choose to your liking.

Since torrents,hundreds of sites have popped up that stream videos. I can go on for days about the number of sites that you can watch and catch up on your favorite TV show and/or classic TV shows and movies. You can check out my previous blogs 4 Quick watch to watch TV and movies online for free and Free ways to watch TV and movies online part 2. With these sites, you don’t really need cable or satellite because whatever airs,will ultimately be placed on torrent, ed2k or streaming sites the very next day! They are beneficial because most of them are ad free. I say MOST because the network sites, ABC, CBS,FOX etc. show ads on their players(just one commercial and in some cases,the same commercial over and over again). Keep in mind. TV is not completely dead even though studios and networks are airing their contents through things like Netflix and their own sites. The question is, Can you go without Cable TV even though what you watch on your TV set is readily available online?

Most anticipated movies of 2009

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
transformers_2_poster

In the highly-anticipated “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” debuting June 26, 2009, Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) again joins with the Autobots® against their sworn enemies, the Decepticons®. Michael Bay directs from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger & Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman.

Angels and Demons
angels_and_demons_poster

The team behind the global phenomenon “The Da Vinci Code” returns for the highly anticipated “Angels & Demons,” based upon the bestselling novel by Dan Brown. Tom Hanks reprises his role as Harvard religious expert Robert Langdon, who once again finds that forces with ancient roots are willing to stop at nothing, even murder, to advance their goals. When Langdon discovers evidence of the resurgence of an ancient secret brotherhood known as the Illuminati – the most powerful underground organization in history – he also faces a deadly threat to the existence of the secret organization’s most despised enemy: the Catholic Church. When Langdon learns that the clock is ticking on an unstoppable Illuminati time bomb, he jets to Rome, where he joins forces with Vittoria Vetra, a beautiful and enigmatic Italian scientist. Embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt through sealed crypts, dangerous catacombs, deserted cathedrals, and even to the heart of the most secretive vault on earth, Langdon and Vetra will follow a 400-year-old trail of ancient symbols that mark the Vatican’s only hope for survival.

Star Trek

Joe: The Rise of Cobra.” is directed by Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy,” “The Mummy Returns”).

Land of the Lost
land_of_the_lost_poster

Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world – a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost.

Night at the Museum: Battle at the Smithsonian
night_at_the_museum_2_poster

It’s a new “Night” and “Museum” for Ben Stiller, who is joined by several other stars from the original film, as well as new characters from history — including Amy Adams as famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, Hank Azaria as villainous Egyptian pharaoh Ka Mun Rah, Christopher Guest as Russian tyrant Ivan the Terrible and Alain Chabat as Napoleon. Owen Wilson is back as cowboy Jedediah, and Robin Williams again rides into history as Teddy Roosevelt.

2012

Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists, and governments. “2012” is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
wolverine_poster

Leading up to the events of “X-Men,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Movie flashback: Howard the Duck

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope 2009 is a better year for many,including myself!
I am on vacation in New York with my dad and his flavor of the month. It’s about 11:10am on New Year’s morning and, we don’t have plans till later. I went on Hulu to check out the new content that was added over the past few days. If anyone has STILL not checked it out please do. This site has allowed viewers(U.S. viewers,not available to anyone outside the U.S. at this moment) to view free streaming video of TV shows and movies for free. Yes,it’s LEGAL! I wrote about it in my my 4 quick ways to watch tv and movie for free
.
htd

I saw that they added “Howard the Duck”. Quite a bit of people have seen this and some of the ones that haven’t either love it or absolutely hate it. I have seen this movie quite a bit when I was younger. I actually like it’s campiness and the weird vibe of a talking duck, that lives his life as a playa. LOL.
I am going to post two of the comments that Hulu has gotten on this movie over the past few days.

Disgraceful
This film is an abomination. The lowest form of crap. It is not just the bottom of the barrel, it is below the barrel. The bottom of the barrel is on top of it. I am shocked that so many people actually enjoy this horrible film. It is a disgrace to the name of filmmaking. Anyone who likes this film is an idiot. No offense, but they clearly have no idea what a good film is. Anyone who has a brain cell in their head will definately hate this film. Do not waste your time.

Or this lovely person that has written a letter to Hulu about them advertise the recent added of the film to their banner. Dearest letter writer:
Hulu advertises ALL TV shows and movies they add to the site on their banner!

Here’s a letter I just sent to HULU:
Dearest Hulu:
I know that convincing owners of content to allow you to post through your portal has been a tough sell, as evidence by the overall quality and quantity of the movies available.
However, even though a relatively new addition, it’s not a really good idea to be hyping the fact that you just added “Howard the Duck” into rotation.
Why? Its one of the worst movies ever made….its almost as bad as Ed Wood’s “Plan 9 from Outer Space” (but not as campy fun)
1. It isn’t going to get current hulu subscribers excited. It won’t be rallying “the base”
2. It certainly isn’t going to serve as incentive to convince new users to subscribe
3. Hyping HTD has the brief whiff of desperation about it. Perception is Reality.
I love hulu, and can’t wait for content creators to catch up with you!

People are entitled to their opinions and views of any movie or tv show put on there. Why do people think they were FORCED to watch the content that Hulu has so graciously allowed us to view? The content on there may not be recent especially, if you want to view movies and maybe,the list of movies to watch is a little sparse and B-rated like “The Toxic Avenger”, “Bloody Mallory” or “The Thing”. That was the 80’s! The movies that were made and produced for the 80’s is what it is. I can name quite a few of them that I sat and watched. It might not have seemed silly or stupide them, but they are made the 80’s an era of ” I can’t believe I used to watch that!” or ” What was I thinking when I wore that”?.
I talked about “The Pirate Movie” in an earlier post that I liked and, I watched it again a few days ago and I laughed to myself, thinking why did I like this movie? I look at it now and, the acting wasn’t great, the dancing was sub par and the storyline was corny…but I still LOVE it! What other era can you get these types of movies call it “cheesy” and say,“this is a classic” all in one sentence? We can surely thank George Lucas for this movie

Does anyone remember this movie?

We were sitting around work the other day, talking about movies. We got on the subject of musicals and the really old ones(well not too old. Most people I know are kids of the late 80’s early 90’s) that we watched when we were younger. I brought one particular movie up and, maybe, two other people were like, “Yeah. I remember that”!
Now, I will admit. It was cheesy and musicals, have definitely come a long way since this one. In fact, we don’t get many musical now-a-days that are worth seeing. The children today like “High School Musical” and that’s about the only one I can think of off the top of my head.

Anyways, this movie is called, The Pirate Movie”
200px-pirate_movie

I once thought, I only remembered one person from this movie, Kristy McNichol because she was on the tv show Empty Nest and, last I heard, she’s retired from acting altogether. While researching more of this movie, I realized the guy from “Blue Lagoon” played her love interest! I never really knew his name except that he was the really cute, half-naked, curly-haired kid that took “Brooke Shields'” virginity away in the movie! LOL.

Here’s a clip of the final scene called,”Happy Ending”

There are, of course more clips of this movie on youtube and this DVD can be purchased at Amazon. Yes. I searched for it!

Disney Movies of the Past: A walk down memory lane.

I was watching Turner Classics Movies(TCM) on Sunday and, airing was a documentary called, “The Age of Believing: The Disney Live Action Classics”about Disney movies of the past. It was narrated by Angela Lansbury, who is a Tony winner and a three-time Oscar nominee. Angela Lansbury is probably most known and recognized from her work as Mrs. Jessica Fletcher from Cabot Cove in the hit TV show,“Murder She Wrote”.

The documentary featured interviews from actors/actresses that starred in some of the classics Dick Van Dyke, Kurt Russell, Lesley Ann Warren and Karen Dotrice. It also features Roy E. Disney and clips of Walt Disney himself, working hard to get Walt Disney Studios to what it has become today. What I am gonna to do today, is refresh your memory on some of these classics. I didn’t think twice about these movies movies until I watched this documentary that brought up memories! Disney has definitely shaped how some of the family movies are made today.

The Swiss Family Robinson(1960) is shipwrecked en route to a new life in New Guinea following a horrible night at sea. The parents and their three sons, find themselves deserted on an island with no rescue in sight. The Robinsons quickly learn to adapt to life on the beautiful island, but danger is never far away as the family copes with bad weather, deadly wild animals and pirates who have threaten the paradise the Robinsons have made for themselves. Here’s a clip from the movie:


Anaconda Attack

Pete and the Dragon Pete’s Dragon (first released on November 3, 1977) is a live-action/animated musical feature film from Walt Disney Productions. It is a live-action film but its title character, a dragon named Elliott, is animated. It is about a young orphan named Pete (played by Sean Marshall) who enters a small fishing community in Maine in the early 20th century. His only friend is a dragon, Elliott (voiced by Charlie Callas and animated by Don Bluth), who also acts as his sentinel. Elliott can make himself invisible and is generally visible only to Pete, which occasionally lands Pete in trouble with the locals.

Pete’s Dragon

Bedknobs and Broomsticks
bedknobsandbroomsticks

Bedknobs and Broomsticks is a 1971 musical film produced by Walt Disney Productions which combines live action and animation; it premiered on October 7, 1971. It is based upon the books The Magic Bed Knob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons and Bonfires and Broomsticks, by Mary Norton. It stars Angela Lansbury and David Tomlinson.
The film has similarities to Mary Poppins (1964): combining live action and animation and partly set in the streets of London. They share cast and crew members, namely Tomlinson, supporting actor Reginald Owen, songwriters the Sherman Brothers, director Robert Stevenson, art director Peter Ellenshaw, and music director Irwin Kostal.

The Gnome Mobile

The story opens with the children’s grandfather, D.J. Mulrooney (Walter Brennan), a well-known executive officer of a vast timber-trading company. D.J., an eccentric and passionate man with a distinctive snore, as well as vast dedication and determination, has bought up a preserve of ancient virgin forest to show his descendants the majesty of the Redwood trees. In order to meet with business clients in Seattle, D.J. takes his personal, customized Rolls-Royce Phantom II on a trip, picking up his grandchildren and taking them to a part of his forest en route. In a brief conversation with his Company Head of Security, Ralph Yarby (Richard Deacon), we learn that the car was purchased after D.J. earned his first $1 million.

The Apple Dumpling Gang
apple-dumpling-gang

The Apple Dumpling Gang is a 1971 novel by Jack Bickham, about a group of orphaned children during the California gold rush. They encounter a gambler who reluctantly helps them, as well as a pair of hapless robbers who are after the gold the children have found.

Candleshoe
180px-candleshoe_dvd

Con-artist Harry Bundage (McKern) believes that there is a great treasure at Candleshoe, the large country estate of Lady St Edmund (Hayes).
Harry recruits American Casey Brown (Foster)—a street kid—into the plot, employing her to pose as Lady St Edmund’s granddaughter, the Honourable Margaret, 4th Marchonesse of St. Edmond, who disappeared as a baby after her father died in a car crash. Lady St Edmund, however, is poor and owes money in back taxes. Priory (Niven), her butler (who is forced to pose as a gardener, chauffeur and gentleman Colonel), and some local orphan children help keep the estate finances one step ahead of the government by selling produce made on the estate. All of this happens unknown to Lady St Edmund. Initially Casey enters the con attempting to find the location of the treasure; but her affections gradually turn towards that of the household and Lady St Edmund. She eventually joins them in their quest to uncover Lady St Edmund’s treasure for the benefit of Candleshoe, rather than for Bundage.

Mary Poppins
mary-poppins-mv03

We all know the plot of this favorite. Parents have two kids that pretty much run off every nanny they’ve had. The kids write a description of what type of nanny they would be happy with and , maybe, they would not “get rid” of this one. I noticed, while writing this blog, the children in this movie is also in “The Gnome Mobile” as well! Disney keepin’ it all in the family,similar to“The Sound of Music” except with no Nazis!(not a Disney Movie,produced by FOX)
