Thing Thursday: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

ManFromUncleThe Rogers Revue, a fantastic entertainment blog held a contest when the Man from U.N.C.L.E. movie came out… and I won! Squee!

I got the first season of the television show on DVD (which arrived in the mail so fast I was stunned). I have watched a lot of the show on TV when the repeats were on years ago but I look forward to watching the first season properly now, in order. The actors are so young! I mean, David looks like he’s 18! heehee I wasn’t so sure how I felt about the movie remake, because so much of the show for me was these particular actors. But I saw a newer trailer the other day and actually felt pretty good about the movie.

I’ve already made plans with my mom to have a fun night watching some of it together :-)

So you should totally check out The Rogers Revue and also like them on Facebook. They run a lot of fun contests—you too could be a winner! And they provide some really great entertainment news about everything from books and theater to television and movies. If nothing else, check out some of the awesome interviews they’ve done.

Thing Thursday: 4 Fantasy Movies

FantasyCollectionI spotted this four-pack of fantasy movies at Walmart last week in the $5 bin and couldn’t resist buying it. I’ve never seen Neverwas, but it’s got a great cast (Ian McKellen, William Hurt, Jessiva Lange, Alan Cumming, and more) so I think it’ll be worth a watch some day. And Pinocchio has always kind of creeped me out, but I might give it a try eventually.

I saw A Wrinkle in Time on TV when it first came out. It didn’t measure up to my mental image of the book from my childhood, but it did have Dr. David from Queer as Folk, and that’s good enough for me :-)

But I really bought this DVD for The Neverending Story III. I have only seen that movie once. And I believe that one time was in German on a VHS copy of something LONG before it was ever released in the US. I know it’s nothing close to as magical as the first movie or even the second. But as I own those on DVD, I definitely jumped at the chance to own the third and final in the trilogy. I look forward to watching it for the first time in English!
