[DVD Review] Race to Witch Mountain

4 August 2009 7:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Just as Return From Witch Mountain lost a little of the magic that made the original Escape to Witch Mountain so special, the series continues to atrophy with the third entry in the conceptual story with Race to Witch Mountain. Escape to Witch Mountain shrouded its story in mystery by keeping the children’s history concealed from both the antagonists, the audience and the children themselves. The film as a whole was a testament to discovering identity, a feat which Return From Witch Mountain couldn’t quite replicate as it became nothing but a film to demonstrate how good Disney had become at its cable-based stunt work. So what benchmark does that leave for Disney to score with Race to Witch Mountain?

Whatever it is, Disney definitely doesn’t quite achieve it.

Jack Bruno (Dwayne Johnson) drives a taxi cab in Las Vegas and, in doing so, meets a lot of interesting people. »

AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig Talk Race to Witch Mountain

3 August 2009 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The new child stars of the Disney remake talks about the new film, working with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and future films

Walt Disney Studios relived their 1975 classic Escape to Witch Mountain with a new modern-day spin in the popular remake Race to Witch Mountain, which hits the shelves on DVD and a Blu-ray/DVD combo set on August 4. This new remake got a revamped cast with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Carla Gugino and even the grown-up child stars of the original film, Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann. Of course, the new film also needed new child stars which they got in the wonderful combination of AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig, who portray the alien siblings Sara and Seth. I had the chance to speak with Robb and Ludwig over the phone recently about their new film on DVD and Bd, and here's what they had to say.

Escape to Witch Mountain and Return to Witch Mountain - DVD Review

6 April 2009 8:50 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Do you remember the Disney Witch Mountain movies? I thought I did, but having had the opportunity to see them again, there is much that I had forgotten. In honor of the new Witch Mountain film, Disney has released the earlier films in separate Family Classics special editions. You can watch them again, or for the first time and enjoy the story, plus state-of-the art .magic. of the 1970.s. It is not fair to compare .special effects. of older films with those of the present day, so I will not even go there. The earliest Witch Mountain film is .Escape to Witch Mountain. which begins with two children Tony (Ike Eisenmann) and Tia Malone (Kim Richards) having lost »

[DVD Review] Escape to Witch Mountain

16 March 2009 10:00 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Disney does love itself some good child actors. Yes sir. Luckily, they found two decent ones in Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann whom, with only minimal amounts of help, carry Escape to Witch Mountain into the echelons of 1970s classics. Full of camp and with plenty of action to keep the story going, Escape to Witch Mountain establishes its message of self-discovery and never let's up until the end.

Tony (Ike Eisenmann) and Tia (Kim Richards) have a past comparable to Jason Bourne - and trust me I wish I was joking when I make that comparison. They both know they're different from the other children and they have vague recollections of events that happened before their life at the orphanage. Unfortunately, neither of them knows what that past is. The twins are all alone with only a small map and Tia's haunting visions of a shipwreck.

One day, Tony »

I'm a bit confused by Return from Witch Mountain. In the original, there's a pretty solid theme of self-discovery (which is admittedly thrown away by the ending, but it's there). Further still, Escape to Witch Mountain set up the perfect premise for a sequel in the final five minutes. When Tia and Tony's Uncle Bene (Denver Pyle) says there are many more alien children out there waiting to find their way back to their kind, Disney essentially established a goldmine for countless sequels of the twins helping other children like themselves get home. As soon as I heard the uncle say that line I thought to myself ‘wow, that's actually a pretty smart sequel premise - well played Disney.' Now you listen here, Return to Witch Mountain will have none of that spoon-fed sequel crap - oh no - instead they »

Stars Race to 'Witch Mountain' World Premiere

11 March 2009 11:59 PM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

Dwayne Johnson and the stars of Disney's 'Race to Witch Mountain' premiered their exciting family adventure in Hollywood Wednesday night -- and "The Insider" was there! "I'd never been in an action movie that had pretty cool car chase sequences," Dwayne Johnson tells "The Insider" about the film. "For me I was able to do all my own stunts -- I was like a kid in a candy store - like let's do one more take!" In theaters everywhere this Friday, 'Race to Witch Mountain' casts Dwayne as a Vegas cabbie who unwittingly becomes the protector of two siblings with paranormal powers (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig) on the run from the government, mobsters and even extraterrestrials! 'Escape from Witch Mountain' and 'Return from Witch Mountain' '70s star Kim Richards, who has a cameo in the new film with original co-star Ike Eisenmann, was also there for the red-carpet fun. »

DVD, Blu-Ray Round Up, Mar. 10, 2009: ‘Scarlett Johansson Collection,’ ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ ‘Witch Mountain’

10 March 2009 11:02 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The Round-Up, HollywoodChicago.com’s famous recurring column about lesser Blu-Ray and DVD titles that may have slipped through your fingers at the store recently, is in clean-up mode this week. With a DVD collection for a famous young actress, an old cartoon, a straight-to-video horror movie, and three movies with the word “Mountain” in the title, the only word that comes to mind to tie these titles together is “random”.

You know those bins of “impulse buy” items you’ll see in stores near the cash register? Stuff that you may not have put on your shopping list and that you may not even know you want until you see them? That’s what this week’s Round-Up column is like. Peek in the bin and take a look at “Jonny Quest,” “The Scarlett Johansson Collection,” “Dead in 3 Days,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Escape to Witch Mountain,” and “Return to »
