King Kong


(12)

It is 1933, and vaudeville actress Ann Darrow (Oscar nominee Naomi Watts) has found herself - like so many other New Yorkers during the Great Depression - without the means to earn a living. Unwilling to compromise and allow herself to sink into a career in burlesque, she considers her limited options while aimlessly wandering the streets of Manhattan. When her hunger drives her to unsuccessfully try to steal an apple from a fruit vendor's stall, she is rescued - literally - by filmmaker and multiple hyphenate Carl Denham (Jack Black).

It seems that the entrepreneur-raconteur-adventurer is no stranger to theft, having that day lifted the only existing print of his most recent and unfinished film from under his studio executives' noses when they threatened to pull his completion funds. Carl has until the end of the day to get his crew onboard the Singapore-bound tramp steamer, the S.S. Venture, in hopes of completing his travelogue/action film. With that, the showman is certain he will finally achieve the personal greatness he knows awaits him around the corner - and although the crew believe that corner to be Singapore, Denham actually hopes to find and capture on film the mysterious place of legend: Skull Island.

Unfortunately for Carl, his headlining actress has pulled out of his project, but his search for a size-four leading lady (the costumes have all been made) has, fatefully, led him to Ann. The struggling actress is reluctant to sign on with Denham, until she learns that the up-and-coming, socially relevant playwright Jack Driscoll (Oscar winner Adrien Brody) is penning the screenplay - the fees his friend Carl pays for potboiling adventure are a welcome supplement to Driscoll's nominal income from his stage plays.

With his newly discovered star and coerced screenwriter reluctantly onboard, Denham's 'moving picture ship' heads out of New York Harbor... and toward a destiny that none aboard could possibly foresee...

Thomas Kretschmann, Colin Hanks, Andy Serkis, Evan Parke, Jamie Bell, Lobo Chan, John Sumner, Craig Hall, Kyle Chandler, Bill Johnson, Mark Hadlow, Geraldine Brophy.

Great movie, Peter Jackson has made a remake to Hollywood blockbuster. If you have yet seen this movie your missing out on an excellent remake.

Eight years later, while Michael is a law student observing the Nazi war crime trials, he is stunned to find Hanna back in his life - this time as a defendant in the courtroom. As Hann's past is revealed, Michael uncovers a deep secret that will impact both of their lives. The Reader is a haunting story about truth and reconciliation, about how one generation comes to terms with the crimes of another.

Little Women 1945


(U)

Meg (Janet Leigh), Josephine (June Allyson), Amy (Elizabeth Taylor) and Beth (Margaret O'Brien) are the little women who, together with their mother, keep the home fires burning while their preacher father (Leon Ames) serves with the Union army during the Civil War. Meg, the eldest, is a second mother to the troupe while "Jo", the tomboy, takes on the role of man of the house. Amy yearns for the good things in life, and Beth, the youngest and frailest of the four, seeks comfort in gentle music. A simple tale of four young girls coming to womanhood. This is a great summary but, I wanted to mention that Beth is not the youngest March sister - Amy is. The order is Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy.

Peter Lawford, Mary Astor, Lucile Watson, C. Aubrey Smith, Elizabeth Patterson, Harry Davenport, Richard Wyler, Connie Gilchrist, Ellen Corby.

This is my all time favourite classic movies, just love this movie its well better the remake in 1994 with Winona Ryder. Its just fantastic!!!

South Pacific


(U)

Can a girl from Little Rock find happiness with a mature French planter she got to know one enchanted evening away from the military hospital where she is a nurse? Or should she just wash that man out of her hair? Bloody Mary (Juanita Hall) is the philosopher of the island and it's hard to believe she could be the mother of Liat who has captured the heart of Lt. Joseph Cable USMC (John Kerr). While waiting for action in the war in the South Pacific, sailors and nurses put on a musical comedy show. The war gets closer and the saga of Nellie Forbush (Mitzi Gaynor) and Emile de Becque (Rossano Brazzi) becomes serious drama.

Ray Walston, France Nuyen, Russ Brown, Floyd Simmons, Tom Laughlin, Jack Mullaney, Ken Clark, Archie Savage, Candace Lee, Warren Hsieh, Francis Kahele.

Watched this when I was younger and this was a really great movie. Thought the story line was good, not to sure about the music though, as I'm not really into musicals. Not to keen on the ending but all in all a good movie!!!

Fiddler On The Roof


(U)

An outstanding accomplishment in every way, this lavishly produced and critically acclaimed screen adaptation of the international stage sensation tells the life-affirming story of Tevye (Topol), a poor milkman whose love, pride and faith help him face the oppression of turn-of-the-century Tsarist Russia. Nominated eight Academy Awards (1971), including Best Picture and Best Director and featuring such classic songs as "If I were a rich man", "Matchmaker" and "Sunrise, Sunset", Fiddler on the Roof is a universal story of hope, love and acceptance - a musical masterpiece.

Fiddler on the Roof is an all-time classic movie, this is excellent movie for all those who love musicals. The movie offers a view of the historical past of a Jewish village in Russia and a look at Jewish traditions and love in that context. I would recommend this to all who love musicals!!!

West Side Story



(PG)

Garnering a total of ten Academy Awards - including Best Picture of 1961 - West Side Story set a brilliant standard for movie musicals that remains unsurpassed to this day.

The Little Mermaid


(U)

All the music, fun, and excitement under the sea resurface in this magical, special edition of Disney's 28th animated masterpiece. Awash with breathtaking animation, unforgettably colourful characters, and two Academy Awards for score and song, "Under The Sea," The Little Mermaid is one of Disney's most cherished films. Ariel (Jodi Benson), the fun-loving and mischievous mermaid, is enchanted with all things human.

Disregarding her father's order to stay away from the world above the sea, she swims to the surface and, in a raging storm, rescues the prince of her dreams. Determined to be human, she strikes a bargain with the devious sea witch, Ursula (Pat Carroll), and trades her fins and beautiful voice for legs. With her best friend, the adorable and chatty Flounder (Jason Marin), and her reluctant chaperone Sebastian (Samuel E. Wright), the hilarious, reggae-singing Caribbean crab, at her side, Ariel must win the prince's love and save her father's kingdom -- all in a heart-pounding race against time!

Timon (Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella) start to watch the original Lion King movie, but Timon keeps insisting to fast forward to when they come in, because they weren't seen in the beginning of the story or anywhere until halfway through. Pumbaa suggests telling the audience their story, which begins before Simba's journey begins. Through this, we meet Timon's mother (Julie Kavner) and Uncle Max (Jerry Stiller), discover why he left his meerkat colony, where he learned Hakuna Matata, how he meets Pumbaa, and the perils they encountered while searching for their dream home.

Simba (Matthew Broderick) and Nala (Moira Kelly) have a daughter, Kiara (Michelle Horn singing voice by Charity Sanoy). Timon (Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella) are assigned to be her babysitters, but she easily escapes their care and ventures into the forbidden lands. There she meets a lion cub named Kovu (Ryan O'Donohue) and they become friends. What she and her parents do not know is that Kovu is the son of Zira (Suzanne Pleshette) - a banished follower of the now-dead Scar (Jeremy Irons). She plans to raise Kovu to overthrow Simba and become the king of the Pride Lands. This tests not only Kiara (Neve Campbell singing voice by Liz Callaway) and Kovu's (Jason Marsden singing voice by Gene Miller) relationship as they mature, but Simba's relationship with his daughter.

Pocahontas 2 Journey To A New World


(U)
Bursting with high-spirited adventure, daring duels and hilarious new mischief from Meeko (John Kassir), Percy (Danny Mann) and Flit (Frank Welker), Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World boldly presents a fun-filled new chapter in the life of Disney's bravest heroine!

The same breathtaking magic that brought the original Disney Classic to life now sends Pocahontas (Irene Bedard her sing voice by Judy Kuhn) down a new path as she boards a great ship and sails to England! Escorted by dashing British gent John Rolfe (Billy Zane), her oversized bodyguard Uti and stowaways Meeko, Percy and Flit, Pocahontas begins an important mission of peace. An eye opening "new world" awaits her on the bustling, shop-lined streets of London - but so does a deadly new threat from Ratcliffe! As Pocahontas prepares for the elegant King's Ball (Jim Cummings), with comical help from nearsighted maid Mrs. Jenkins (Jean Stapleton), her feelings from Rolfe are growing. But the sudden reappearance of John Smith (Donal Gibson) forces Pocahontas into another life-changing decision, between two loves and two ways of life!

Finola Hughes, Linda Hunt, Russell Means, David Ogden Stiers, Colin McCabe.

True to the long-standing Disney tradition of lush, colorful animation, heartwarming characters and captivating new songs, this all-new Pocahontas adventure stands tall with a spirit all its own!


I really liked the first Pocahontas better than this one, for the musical and the great script. The sequel is not as good but still quite a good movie. I would recommend this to all who has seen the first one, but don't expect it to be just as good, because its not!!!

Pocahontas


(U)

Capt. John Smith (Mel Gibson) leads a rag-tag band of English sailors & soldiers to the New World to plunder its riches for England (or, more precisely, for Governor Ratcliffe (David Ogden Stiers), who comes along for the ride). Meanwhile, in this "New World," Chief Powhatan (Russell Means) has pledged his daughter, Pocahontas (Irene Bedard her sing voice is by Judy Kuhn), to be married to the village's greatest warrior. Pocahontas, however, has other ideas. She has seen a vision of a spinning arrow, a vision she believes tells her change is coming. Her life does indeed change when the English ship lands near her village. Between Ratcliffe, who believes the "savages" are hiding the gold he expected to be plentiful, and Powhatan, who believes these pale newcomers will destroy their land, Smith and Pocahontas have a difficult time preventing all-out war, and saving their love for each other.

Christian Bale
, Lind Hunt, Danny Mann, Billy Connolly, Joe Baker, Frank Welker.

This movie is a really great for children. The movie is a classic, it has some comedy in it from the sidekick pals Meeko (John Kassir) the Meerkat. The songs are the making of this movie it just wouldn't be the same without them. If you have young children this this is a must watch. All in all a great movie for children.

This is like the first movie and it has kept the same story line at the first even though this was made over 50 years later. It is just as good as the first. It has some humour in itand the story line is good with some emotional moments.
