The Marksman (2005)
A Plausible Story Fowled up by Poor Attention to Reality
Like others have commented, I too thought the movie had a poor go-about. However, I gave it a better rating. I don't believe the movie is THAT poor. The plot was feasible, and the storyline could be followed, but there were way too many mistakes made from props to costuming. This is probably a reason why I only saw it as a release to video and never in a theater.
I don't think Snipes is a bad actor, though I feel he's not pushing forth to his full potential. He's no spring chicken, though. His movie career seems to have shown up much later than others, and for a man reaching the age of 50, he needs to adjust his style of action roles. I still think he can be cast a great lead in an action flick, but he's got to look the part and make the audience believe it. (on a side note, he's gotta read the script ahead of time and make sure the props & costumes fit the role more realistically)
An Earful of Musical Entertainment with a Visual Menagerie of Realistic Animation
I'm normally a huge movie fan yet was drawn to this music video, like many others, by seeing PipeDreams on PBS years ago. I didn't know a formal video had been produced or had been available. I was walking through a computer wholesale store and notice it playing on the monitors. I immediately stopped what I was doing and stood watching it. After the segment played it displayed the website of its production. I checked out the website and found out there were more segments and checked out the clips. I finally decided to loosen up my grip on the wallet and purchase the DVD. I am so glad I did. It is an excellent addition to any collection. My son also finds it interesting and it'll calm and entrance him. One of the best short time babysitters for a preschooler I could ever think of. I also use it as a background piece when I have company over or my wife has little group sales parties. I'm now anxiously awaiting the release of Animusic 2 which should be available for sale later this month.
The Twilight Zone (1985)
Stories so unique they can only be found in....................
Rod Serling's series is resurrected and given new sparkle as these episodes were released in the mid-80's. They still capture the twist and intensity that the original Twilight Zone offered. Using a strong cast and many new names, at the time, the stories were able to keep viewers on the edge of their toes.
Season 1 has currently been released on DVD. Nostalgic enthusiasts who remember the show well may strongly be interested in adding this to their collection. Great stories like 'Button, Button', 'If She Dies', 'Kentucky Rye', and 'Nightcrawlers' have won fans over for the series.
I feel that in it's day, the people who set up the program schedules didn't really give it a chance. Though this is personal opinion, I believe that they had done that with several shows with strong potential. Great collection to add for any Zone Fanatic.
Combat High (1986)
Hilarious Comedy Belongs to the Cult Classic Vault
This movie was directed very well and had a plausible and interesting story line. They also threw in comedians from every which direction. The pranks that were pulled will have you laughing every time.
Two young students, who are well known for playing practical jokes, end up taking a prank too far and get sent to military school. There they try to prank their way out and find out there's a bit more in store for them as they realize there's more to life than pranking. And the learn it the hard way.
This movie set the way for a lot of young actors just starting out. Other's were somewhat established, yet showed they were a bit more versatile than people knew of. The combined effort of this movie was probably good enough to make it in theaters, but landed as 'Made for TV'. Very difficult to find on DVD, but is an excellent addition to any collection.
Santa vs. the Snowman 3D (2002)
You'll be Rolling on the Floor
This is a hilarious spoof of several Christmas stories, and some not of this 'galaxy', all spun together in one of the most clever ways.
It's about a Snowman and his flute that institutes a war against Santa. The rest has to be seen to be believed.
It's a bit hard to keep unbiased in the enjoyment of this movie. I first saw on television in the late 1990's. It was later released with a 3D rework in IMAX theaters in select cities. This is definitely a movie to add to your collection and the new DVD comes with 3D glasses to enjoy the big screen entertainment come to life in your home.
Definitely a keeper and remember to go to the bathroom beforehand.
