Godzilla Breaks Into Riverdance, 12 April 2003
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

[Possible Spoilers] This was the very first Godzilla flim that i seen as a kid i liked then and still do.Know that i'm older i see this a fun movie and some of it's silliness.First thing is that after Godzilla and Rodan beat King Ghidra, Godzilla does a victory dance also when Glen and Terry are in there cell Glen pulls out the note that his girl friend Namikawa he says to Terry "Listen to this" and they both just stare at the note as Namikawa's voice is heard.Last is how the aliens from Planet X escape into the future not a good idea to me.I will also point out that when action picks up you see Nick Adams,who plays Glen pulling up his pants!!!A fun movie.

Tag-Team Wrestling Saved This Film, 9 April 2003
3/10

When you compare all of the Godzilla films to see witch one is the best this one is mostly at the bottom.That's not saying that Godzilla vs Megalon is the worst(that"honor" go's to Godzilla's Revenge)yet this film is pretty poor.The main problem is that Godzilla is not in the film much,also Megalon looks like a silly cock-roach and they use a lot stock footage from other films.What saves the movie is at the big battle with Godzilla and Jet Jaguar on one side and Megalon and Gigan on the other.It reminds me of a old Grand-Pix Wrestling main event only with super-sized brawlers.It's loads of fun,just turn your brain off and give it a go.

Very Strange, 4 April 2003
4/10

I watched this film for the first time and it surprised me.The version that i watched was from the mst3k t.v. show and i can tell you that you don't need Joel and his robot pals to laugh at this film.I don't know who dubbed this film but it was pretty bad,also what was Akio's concern about traffic accidents anyway? You would think he be more worried about what the two alien girls were going to do to him and his friend.The monster Guiron was different,having a knife-like head that could cut up just about anything. This was the first Gamera film i ever saw and if the other films are like this i hope to see them.

Can You Smell What The Captain Is Cooking, 22 February 2003
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Captain Cook is a very good short from the Canada Vignettes series.[Spoiler]Captain James Cook,like others before him was looking for the so-called northwest passage so he could get to China as soon as possible.He and his crew stopped at Vancouver Island to stock up on supplies and trade with the natives.They traded everything from knives to brass buttons for sea otter pelts.The pelts were a hit in China and this started the fur trade on the west coast-good short.

A way of life that ended forever, 20 February 2003
7/10

This short,The Horse ranks as one of the best of the Canada Vignettes series from the late 70's and early 80's.[Spoiler]The short is about the two kinds of horses that came to the west.The short explains that horses were brought to this side of the world by the Spainish and with strays that got away.The indians of the plains soon seen how the horse could give a freedom they never had.With it's animation it shows how easier it was to hunt the buffalo-riding up and shoot them with arrows then the old way of sneaking up on foot.This way of life lasted the short says about a hundred years before the new horse came,this i'll leave for others to see-great short.

This Brings Back Memories, 19 February 2003
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This short made by the National Flim Board is one i remember but for different reasons.[Possible Spoiler]It is realy a short biography of Roger Doucet and even though he done a lot of things in his life, he will be remembered for singing the national anthem at the old Form in Montreal.At the time the flim was made, the Montreal Canadiens were a powerhouse team and a season without the Stanley Cup was considered a failure.This used to bug me because i am a Toronto Maple Leafs fan.But now as i write this the Leafs are considered a contender for the cup and the Canadiens are trying to get a playoff spot.Times sure changed.

faces times two, 8 February 2003
4/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

[ Spoiler] This Canada Vignette is one of many that the National Film Board produced for t.v. It's a lot like the vignette faces where different faces change into something else. The major difference with this short is that you have two faces at the same time,or a person with a pet looking at each other. Also instead of a flute solo for music they have a snappy jazz number.It runs for a minute yet it's not bad, worth a look.

bad example of the canada vignettes shorts, 28 January 2003
1/10

this vignette,from the national film board is one of there bad ones.the reason is that it does not tell you anything about the headdress that is shown.the short doesn't have a narater to tell you where the headdress comes from,what type of person would use it or how old it was.to me a bad example of the canada vignettes shorts.

5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

before i make a comment i will put out a spoiler here.this short from the national film board is, to me one of there better animated shorts.it shows a map of Canada that breaks up and each province and the two terriories[two at the time it was made,now there are three]are represented by a dancer.they show what goes on across the land in a very nifty dance.i hope people get to see this i give a 6 out of 10.

More Silly Than Wacky, 12 January 2003
3/10

I can barely remember the t.v. show Dusty's Trail that this film was based on, yet i do remember seeing this flim promoted on t.v. I can also recall the voice over guy bragging that"Gilligan was never this funny"[Then seeing Bob Denver tossed off a horse into a tub of water}.I always thought that this was a film that was based on the show,but all they did was put four shows together and made a movie. People have already said that the show and this film was ripping off Gilligan's Island yet with Sherwood Schwartz and Bob Denver both taking part it's more like there were just trying what worked before.The film copy that i have is very faded yet the old gags and bad jokes are here,some work,some don't but thats what happened on Gilligan's Island.I give this film a 3 but just think that Dusty is Gilligan's great,great grandfather and you will find it a little better.
