Take me out to the Ballgame

Ever since Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra, first met in “Anchors Aweigh”, along with Jerry Mouse, this is the one, where they play in a ball game with the St. Louis Wolves in the 1900’s. Things were different at that time of year. It’s classic, on how they sang very good songs, and how they sing the most classic baseball song, “Take me out to the Ballgame”. When I saw this movie on TV, I think this maybe the classic of all baseball movies. But very funny. You might even check out their song.

The Green Mile

Based on the book by Stephen King, this is one of the most remarkable movies with Michael Clarke Duncan, before he died of a heart attack a year ago. He played as John Coffey, with magical healing powers, as he helped out the guards and warden, while on death row. Back in the 1930’s, during the Great Depression, a lot of work was going on with the prisoners, as it was hard to find a medical doctor, and prisoners before John arrived were sentenced to death row. Tom Hanks, Barry Pepper, and David Morse, were the guards, as James Cromwell was the warden. And every prisoner, on the night of death, would walk their last mile, before executed by electricity in a chair. The guards call it “the green mile”, because of its colour of the floor, and its green. The craziest thing was that mouse, would appear and disappear, Mr. Jingles, by going into a closet. And those guards would have to dig everything out, to find that mouse.

Of course the gross parts of how a wild one, would piss on the guards and floor, and spit chocolate. So it shall be a good one, as long as Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey rests in peace.

Saving Private Ryan

In one of Matt Damon’s first films, this was one as a teenager, he was with Tom Hanks. In this Steven Spielberg movie, this tells about an army squad going behind enemy lines to find a missing paratrooper. He had other brothers that died in battle. Pvt. Sean Ryan, Pvt. Peter Ryan, and Pvt. Daniel Ryan. Pvt. James Ryan played by Matt Damon is the last one. So that was why a squad came to rescue him and took him home. Along with Tom Hanks and Matt Damon, are Vin Diesel as one of the soldiers, and Barry Pepper as one of the sharpshooters. He even happened in “The Green Mile” as
One of the guards, and Captain Jay Fuller in the 2012 movie of “The Lone Ranger”!! I suppose the name, Capt. H Miller, he used and changed that name to Capt. J. Fuller when he happened in “The Lone Ranger”.

Jurassic Park

Do you think cloning exists? Have you seen scientists who found prehistoric mosquito’s and found the blood of dinosaurs? Well this is one of the Steven Spielberg classics, of course he did directed “The Adventures of Tintin” movie, ever since he read the books as a boy.

On an island off the coast of Costa Rica, a construction of a dinosaur park, had gone horribly wrong when the power was shut down by a security guy, who promised to steal dinosaur embryos. But when a T-Rex escaped, it caused havoc. Luckily some of the workers went back to the mainland by boat, leaving the security guy behind, when until he got killed by a venom spitting dinosaur when it escaped. But when some people were left behind, they try to get the hope of survival, as they get the power rebooted to get themselves off this island.

This cast shows Sam Neil, Richard Attenborough, Jeff Goldblum, Bob Peck, Samuel Jackson, and Wayne Knight, as some of these guys might survive from killer dinosaurs. All these dinosaurs do is eat, kill, multiply, to those that are carnivores. The ones that eat plants are herbivores. So if they are going to survive, they arm themselves nothing but combat shotguns, assault rifles, and handguns in order to live. To the first one is the best of the best. The second and third aren’t so good, so I give those, “F—“!!! Triple F minus, like “Lord of the Flies”, for what I wrote.

Without a Paddle

Have you ever get lost in the woods, while going on a treasure hunt? Well this, is one thing, were you shouldn’t. Starring Matthew Lillard, Seth Green, and Dax Shepard, these tell about 3 friends who search for treasure with a parachute man who’s missing in the forest. The funny parts are the giant grizzly bear, the “dy-no-mite” from Burt Reynolds, the motorcycle on funeral graves, and how one of them was shooting crazy with a assault rifle with a grenade launcher. You would not get lost ever in this. Even if a bear eats and craps a satellite phone!

From the Earth to the Moon (1958)

Made by Warner Bros., RKO Radio Pictures, this shows another adventure based on the book by Jules Verne. Starring Joseph Cotten, George Sanders, and Debra Paget, this shows the dawn of the century, as man makes a rocket when a group travels to the moon for the first time!!

This was way before the Apollo missions, and how Neil Armstrong said his words. “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

For how this began, it happened after the American Civil War. And by building that rocket, and making a one way trip, they actually made it to the moon. However, they never returned to Earth.

With no alien activity, and enough supplies to last for many years, they sure lived on the moon. Especially when there is gotta be oxygen inside the Earth.

I give this 8 1/2 out of 10 stars, as a film critic and a fan of Jules Verne.

Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)

With James Manson, Pat Boone, Peter Ronson, Alan Napier, Arlene Dahl, and a duck, based on the book by Jules Verne, this adventure from 20th Century Fox long ago,  is something you would not want to forget.

This classic version is totally amazing like the 2008 version with Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson.

Like the book, they travel all the way to the center of the Earth. They avoid hissing steam caves, echoes that go loud whatever you make a gunshot, a large ocean under the earth, a forest of giant mushrooms, a whirlpool, a family of dimetrodons, magnetic forces, the sunken city of Atlantis, earthquakes, volcanos, and a red lizard with a 20 foot long tongue!! This is one adventure, you would not wanna miss in this Jules Verne classic!!

And as a film critic here, I give this 9/10 stars.

Around the World in 80 Days (1956)

Based on the book by Jules Verne, this won five Academy Awards including Best Picture in 1956. And is way even better than that stupid version with Steve Coogan and Jackie Chan. From goddamn Disney that is totally bullshit!! 😡

Starring David Niven, Cantinflas, Shirley MacLaine and Robert Newton, the movie is all about travel. And shows the ultimate trip, as 4 people travel the entire globe, in 80 days. By taking a hot air balloon, a train, sailboat, and more, they travel whatever transport takes them, as long they don’t get into traffic. Even among trouble they don’t want to get into. Surely 80 days is a long time, but they only have time management to do that stuff.

Finally after they returned, they actually did it.

In this are cameos. Frank Sinatra as a pianist, Buster Keaton as a train conductor, and John Carradine as a colonel who happened to be David Carradine’s dad. Years before he died in 1988, as David went onto movies. Such as Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” before his death in 2009.

Shirley MacLaine in this movie was great. Better than playing that nun in “Two Mules for Sister Sara” with Clint Eastwood. However, I was surprised to see her again as Endora in the 2005 movie of “Bewitched” with Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman.

And for thanking this masterpiece, based on that novel by Jules Verne, 9/10 stars is what I give this.

 

G.I. Joe Movie- 1987

What I think of this, all about “G.I. Joe”, this is the 1# of all the “G.I. Joe” movies!! The last of the “G.I. Joe” 1980’s TV series, this the final, but last episode where its an actual movie!! This tells about secrets about the origin of the Cobra Commander, and why they hate him. For the G.I. Joe final battle, Destro, the Baroness, Zartan, those twins, Serpentor, and the others, status, all DEAD!!! Every single one of them, as victory is for all of G.I. Joe, is what they did. This whole war against them is no more. They are glad Cobra is dead, and how they did it. So when G.I. Joe won, and this war is now over, peace and prosperity remains throughout the earth. And G.I. Joe will live forever, especially from the 80’s. Sweet victory for them, and a hit song of the classics! YO Joe!

G.I. Joe- 2 movies

Based on the Hasbro toys, and the hit TV series, these are the movies you would not want to forget. “G.I. Joe”. About a fighting force against a sinister enemy known as “Cobra”, who stop these guys from ruling the world. At first, they created molecule bugs known as Nanomites, that can eat anything, then they wiped out every single G.I. Joe including Duke played by Channing Tatum. It was all thanks to Zartan, who was in disguised as the U.S. President, played by Arnold Vosloo!! He was known as that mummy!! So when they were 3 left, including one played by Dwayne Johnson, they called in their general payed by Yippie Kay ya, Bruce Willis! So in a sequel, they had their revenge as they might get that Cobra Commander yet.

In what I thought of, of a alternate ending, Duke and the Joes would all be fine, as they would take a medical train, back to headquarters. For the Baroness, she would be torn to pieces, as they call this, “First Blood”. For the Cobra soldiers, they would condemned to be mummified alive. Same for Destro, Cobra Commander, and Storm Shadow. As for Arnold, he would endure the Homdai. The worst of all ancient curses, once so horrible, its personalities cannot be stopped. By minutes of hate, by the crowd from the movie, “1984”, including Suzanna Hamilton, and John Hurt, death will be committed to this traitor, but not for life. For sins, he would be forgotten forever, and never been seen in this world. He would be eaten alive by scarabs, they would place in his coffin, and buried alive, in a special tomb prepared for him. As G.I. Joe will be remembered, a statue of their names will be placed upon it, as there is no more of Cobra. As for the traitor, he would be known as Imhotep, he would to remain sealed in a sarcophagus, and be long forgotten forever, dead for all of eternity. Warriors known as the Majai would never allow him to be released, for he will arid a walking disease, a plaque upon mankind, power over the sands, and the glory, of invincibility!!
