The Horrid "Color of Night", starring Bruce Willis (Who is is always entertaining), Jane March and Lance Henrikson.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (2005).
Fun movie that is at its best when sticking with the source material and not adding unnecessary junk that detracts from the story. It has a great score by Harry Gregson Williams, and epic final battle that is arguably the best in the past 20 years.
Multiplicity starring Michael Keaton.
A favorite of mine as Keaton's 4 distinct personalities leave me in awe of how individual they seem.
A horrible movie which just might qualify as one of the all time worst, The Target (2002) which stars Dennis Hopper and Christopher Lambert.
No redeeming qualities, stay far far away. unless of course you are like me and just have to follow a certain actor to what seems to be the very depths of cinematic hell.
I give it 0/10 stars.
Austin Powers, funnier than I remembered.
Marvel's The Avengers, I seriously think that this movie is becoming like an addictive drug to me.
The Avengers (2012), this is one my all time favorite movies. I may have a problem though.... I can't stop watching it.
"Cobra" Starring Sylvester Stallone, Andrew Robinson, and the always awesome Brian Thompson.
Chuck; Season 4.
I have been thoroughly enjoying the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers box set I ordered. Many happy childhood memories are wrapped up in this ridiculously cheesy show. A lot of the episodes are formulaic, but man is it fun. It's bright, loud colorful, poorly acted and has the funny duo of Bulk and Skull. Lot's of smiles and laughs for me in this show.
Not sure how many people here actually care about Power Rangers, but if you were a child during the 90's or had 90's kids, you can't go wrong with these sets as gifts.
Or you can pick up the individual volumes from Amazon or maybe a local store of your choice
Time life offers installment payments, makes it easier for a slob like me to get stuff. For a 90's kid like me there is a lot of cool stuff coming out that would make for excellent Christmas gifts.
If I sound like an advertisement I apologize, but this set is a long awaited dream.
Red Scorpion with Dolph Lundgren. If you are a fan of the movie I suggest you get the excellent Blu-Ray/DVD combo.
"Stash House" featuring Dolph Lundgren.
Jackie Chan's "Police Story 3 - Supercop" One of his best, and a downright enjoyable movie. I recommend it for fans of Jackie's or people who enjoy a good action flick.
Waiting for my Chiba box set to arrive after hearing about it from you!
Thanks and I'll you know how I get on!
Here's hoping that I didn't steer you wrong. But Sonny Chiba is awesome!
Karate Bullfighter starring Sonny Chiba.
Thanks Lt Brannigan for the detailed info, much appreciated.
Looks like for once I won't be buying the US release.
9 times out of 10 the US releases blow ours away on everything from disc content to cover design!
When it comes to Chiba, you guys got it good. Makes me green with envy. However if you need any more info on Chiba releases I will be glad to help.
How are the Sonny Chiba street fighter DVDs? I love a good 70s matrial arts film with dubious dubbing and bright red stage blood but unbelievably haven't seen these!
Then I suggest you check out the Classic Sonny Chiba Collection.
This is easily the best I have seen the trilogy presented on a cheap set. All three are letterboxed, with decent picture quality, although the second one is of poorer quality which is noticeable during the night scenes.
This set also has 7 other movies in which Chiba either stars or is featured.
Unfortunately (Or fortunately, depending on your preference) they are all dubbed. However this set is not subtitled.
Then ten movies are
Street Fighter Trilogy (Awesome set) *
Sister Street Fighter (Have to admit that I have a huge crush on Etsuko [Sue] Shihomi) *
The Bodyguard (Once you get past the cheesy opening inserted to appease american audiences, it gets awesome. Chiba seems as if he took some ritalin or something. He's calm, cool, and relaxed. But still awesome)*
Legend of the Eight Samurai (Can't comment on this one)
Samurai Reincarnation (Can't say about the picture quality of this version, but I enjoy the movie)
Shogun's Ninja (Chiba and Ninjas that should tell you everything)*
Dragon Princess (Stars my favorite Sue Shihomi as girl out to avenge the death of her father played by Chiba)
Karate Warriors (Chiba plays two rival gangs against each other in order to eliminate them)*
Ones marked * are widescreen.
However I just realized that you are not in the region one area (So disregard the above), which means you have a much better option for the street fighter trilogy. Presented in all of its remastered glory and original language (Subtitled of course), I present to you Optimum's Street Fighter Trilogy.
I really need to get a region free DVD player.
Been busy enjoying numerous Sonny Chiba movies.
Sword of the Valiant (1984)
A fun nonsensical movie with Connery adding immensely to the value of the movie with just 4 scenes
Sonny Chiba's Streetfighter trilogy.
