Ahoy, fellow movie collectors! Will here, with a quick rundown of a few titles available to buy tomorrow on Blu Ray and DVD.
I'm a huge Tim Burton fan. Even when he misses his target, I usually find enough stuff to make his movies worth the price of admission. I never saw the original soap on which this is based, but from what I hear, that might be a good thing, as the more somber tone of the cult show is replaced by a more comedic take on the material.
Johnny Depp teams up with Burton, once again, in the role of Barnabas Collins. Collins is a vampire from the olden days resurrected in the '70's. The trailers make this look like quite a silly film, but I will be seeing it nonetheless.
SOUND OF MY VOICE
I've seen a trailer for this, and it seemed intriguing. It is about a woman who claims to be from the future and the cult she builds around herself. I'm a big fan of small, grounded science fiction movies, so I'm looking forward to finally giving this one a spin.
Nazis on the moon!
If that short sentence doesn't intrigue you, then this weird flick is probably not going to be your cup of tea. I haven't seen it yet, but the trailers remind me of SKY CAPTAIN, and I'm one of the few who really liked that film. I dunno, something about this seems like a weird old serial or something. Definitely looking forward to seeing if it lives up to the movie my brain concocted when I heard the premise.
This was one of my favorites growing up. Of course, I was pretty much into anything Disney had a hand in as a child. Sure, some of the other boys my age had no use for any of the princess centric Disney films, but I think it's a crime to just write this off as a movie for little girls.
Everything about this movie is classic Disney greatness. To this day, I still get the songs stuck in my head.
MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE (25th ANNIVERSARY BLU RAY)
I saw this once when I was very little. As a boy in the '80's, I was well versed in my He-Man cartoons, which is probably why this live action baffled the ever loving shit out of me. It was extremely weird, and Frank Langella's take on Skeletor sticks out in my muddy memory as a plus. Maybe in revisiting it on Blu Ray, I can clear up those fuzzy memories a bit.
Well, that's it for this week. Next week is a big one. See you then.
