12-Movie Family Adventure
12-Movie Family Adventure (2016)
Actors: John Denver, Mickey Rooney, Bo Hopkins
Release Year: 2016
Date: 12/9/2016 12:23 ET

An interesting selection of movies. Half black and white and half in color. I'm guessing that the majority of people that are interested in a family movie collection would want to watch these movies with their kids and that the black and white movies would be a downer to those kids.

Two low budget horror movies on one DVD. In Ruby (1977), the spirit of Ruby Claire's (Piper Laurie, who played Carrie's mom in Carrie) gangster husband returns for revenge at her drive-in movie theater. In Kiss of the Tarantula (1976), teenager Susan (Suzanna Ling in her only role) sends out her tarantulas to kill her enemies. Both of the movies were a thrilling good time for what they were.

This movie was good, although I got bored in parts. This is not the type of movie that I normally watch, but I liked it and I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

This is a very cheesy low budget horror comedy. I actually enjoyed it. The opening that says this is based on a true story (lol) has the world possible misspelled.

In this anime series, a class of middle school students are tasked with assassinating an octopus creature that can destroy the world - who just so happens to be their teacher. That teacher is Koro Sensei and not only is he a super strong assassination target, but he is an incredible teacher who cares about his students. Koro Sensei does have a tragic background, but I won't ruin it and his background isn't revealed until season two. You didn't think he just popped out of nothingness, did you?

Astro Boy [Blu-ray] (2010)
Actors: Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Freddie Highmore
Release Year: 2010

I enjoyed this Blu-Ray release of Astro Boy. I went into it not knowing what to expect and I came out liking it a lot. How Astro Boy came into being is actually creepy for a movie aimed towards kids.

This is a remake of the anime Astro Boy. Like Dragonball: Evolution, which is also based on an anime, this didn't do well in the Japanese box office. Unlike Dragonball: Evolution, this film did well with the source material. I think that I see why this did bad in the Japanese box office though. They probably thought that Americans were messing with their creativity.

Baptism of Blood
Baptism of Blood (2004)
Release Year: 2004

This is a decent horror film from Japan. I usually don't turn my head away from horror movies, but I had to turn my head away during the scene with the brain transfer. I guess that is saying something. It is a bit strange, but that doesn't make it a bad movie.

This is a funny take on the 1989 Batman movie. If people can get pass the creepy animated faces on the animated thumbs, they will likely enjoy it.

This is an overall good movie, but I think that too many characters and too much story is crammed into this 70 minute movie.

If you don't like over the top action anime, ancient Japanese history, and a not so gritty Batman, you won't like this movie. I am luckily interested in all three things. The sword fight between Joker and Batman was epic and the animation is excellent.

I bought this for Anaconda, She Creature, and Dragon Wars. I have already seen Anaconda and Dragon Wars and I enjoy them. She Creature was a first time view for me and it didn't seem like it was made for television. It is good quality on both discs.

A completely fictionalized movie about Bruce Lee and Wong Jack Man. I know that the movie isn't accurate and that the main character seems to be the fictional Steve McKee, but I don't care. I watched it for a Kung Fu based plot and it does deliver on that point.

I really wanted to like this movie more than I did. The movie was just OK and I wanted it to be a great movie. I didn't care that much for the action and the last 45 or so minutes. It felt like the movie was dragging when it reached that point.

A great vampire flick with tons of action. The movie's only downfall is its bad CGI when it comes to the demons and blood.

The power of a lie turns the lives of two women upside down when a child lies about the two teachers being lesbians. The film has great performances all around and the black and white is done in a way that makes it have a stunning picture. This 1961 film is based on a play which was banned many times during its run.

This set includes my favorite Danny Phantom two part special The Ultimate Enemy, in which there exists an evil future version of the main character. This two DVD set also includes the two part special Reign Storm and the fun Christmas episode The Fright Before Christmas.

This was surprisingly pretty good, although it was really cheesy in parts as expected of a Disney Channel movie.

I watched this movie a long time ago as a kid and all that I could remember about it was the fantastic animation and a dinosaur living with a family of lemurs. I watched it again today and it blew me away. The animation looks so real (much better than Disney's Pixar works), many of the main characters are lovable, and the suspense is perfect for both kids and adults.

I was wondering why I was so confused while watching the first episode on this DVD. Funimation decided to skip the first 15 episodes of the show for this set. Wow.

Actor: Answers in Genesis

This video completely ignored science or even science based on a biblical understanding of it. Rather, the video tries to teach that dinosaurs lived with people and that meat eating dinosaurs actually ate plants.

Everyones+ Titan Df (2018)

Everyone's Hero is an OK flick, but Titan A.E. alone makes this worth it. Titan A.E. bombed at the box office and didn't find success until after it's home video release. The mix of hand drawn animation and CGI is stunning eye candy.
