During the Christmas Eve blizzard, Lisa travels to Toyland in Wizard of Oz-like fashion and arrives just in time for a wedding.

Lisa tries to stop this terrible wedding and, together with her new friends, discovers that Barnaby wants to take over Toyland.

(3 viewings)SPOILERSi loved the way they expanded on the original premise. how they could eventually fly, and put a forcefield around themselves. i loved how in the beginning they were learning it, practicing, messing with people, etc. i also liked that the nerdy kid that everyone picks on is not the good guy but the villain. it makes you think that after all the psychological damage that he went through, when he finally had the power to do something about it, he used it for revenge, etc instead of good. as a smart uncle once said, with great power comes great responsibility.

I suggested it and will suggest it to many people who don't know what war is. I suggest to all the people also to see "Hell and back again" it is a must to see.Ciao.

After twenty-eight years we can forgive the shameless stunt casting; the film has actually aged pretty well. Goldblum and Pfeiffer bring a natural chemistry to the shenanigans. Good fun !
Jon T (mx) wrote: Ralph Bakshi's post-apocalyptic animated fantasy about mutant Nazis setting out to conquer the Earth is a complete mess. It's haphazardly directed, it's poorly written, and it's production values are even worse. The animation looks no better than a cheap Saturday morning cartoon, and gets no better when Bakshi attempts to mesh "rotoscoped" live-action sequences into numerous scenes. As with his disastrous LORD OF THE RINGS, the clashing styles of artistry work against the movie. The only noteworthy parts of the animation are some vibrantly drawn still photos which make up portions of the story (narrated by a totally BORING --and I mean boring with a capital "B"-- female voiceover). Aside from that and a pretty song over the closing credits, WIZARDS is little more than just a mindnumbing, bloody, sleep-inducing travesty with a plot that makes absolutely no sense and characters who are not only ill-defined, but are unappealing in every way. I understand that this movie has a cult following, but I cannot recommend it. Its offensive nature and incongrous "cartoonish" gags make the movie more painful than anything else.

Kenneth E (fr) wrote: Happy feet contained the typical ear-marks of a post 2001-era film for all the wrong reasons. Here are the top three things that annoyed me about this film: 1) Soul-less CG characters. The penguins were stiff, identical, but oh, did they look photorealistic! I understand filmmakers were going for a more Discovery-Channel feel, but this decision greatly reduced my emotional connection with all characters. A more logical approach would have been to make the film more akin to the penguins on Madagascar, which were bursting with expression. Also, major points deducted for cheating, as studio Animal Logic went the cheap route by incorporating live action human footage in Act III instead of attempting to create realistic CG people. 2) A complete mockery of music; the soundtrack was a glorified karaoke party, with much of the songs reminding me more of LA than the arctic wilderness. The only exception would be the amazing group sequence towards the end as Mumble got all the penguins to dance as one unified community. This sequence was amazing. 3) The inevitable inclusion of at least two Lord of the Rings actors for insurance reasons. I hate when so many movies do this.Besides these three aspects, I also disliked this film because of its unnecessarily intense chase scenes involving killer orcas and seals; my gut feeling is that such scenes were included primarily to compete with the shark sequence in Finding Nemo. They certainly didn't help propel the story to new heights. Also, the film had one huge plot hole which was that dancing was forbidden but singing was not. (Huh??)The simple act of Mumble moving his feet for his own self-enjoyment was seen as a moral sin by the community, and yet penguins could sing their lungs out to Elvis Presley? Is that really more sensible? Things get even more ridiculous once the penguins dive into the water; there, they loop, twirl, swirl.. yes, this is also known as DANCING. On the positive side, this film had some wonderful and funny vocal performances by the late Robin Williams, including his character "Lovelace," which was my favorite character in the movie. Also, Mumble's journey was fairly epic during the last third of the film, as the little guy set out on a quest to discover the truth about the "aliens." The result to this journey was a deep environmental truth involving overfishing, pollution, animal captivity, and human inabilities to act for the greater good despite being the planet's dominant species. Such a daring conclusion was welcoming, and rarely done in this slapstick era dominated by Shrek and Scrat. For this simple reason, Happy Feet may have brought home the Oscar for Best Animation in 2007.

It should of been titled" Star Trek 5: The Planet Dilemma" and the plot is Kirk has a Earth humanoid wife name Julie Lynn Marshall played by Beverly Leech becomes a victim of a influenza-like virus. Sulu and Chekov become victims of the virus. Kirk needs to make the hardest decision ever in his life to use the antitoxin on. The virus is cured and the planet of Altair 6 is safe from chaos from the victims of the virus on the planet. The movie is high rated and a hit with everybody.
