The Transformers: The Movie

the-transformers-the-movie-dvdSet 20 years in the future after the events of the show’s Second Season, 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie is memorable for killing off several major characters, introducing new concepts into the canon, and (despite its flaws) remaining the best theatrical Transformers movie. The strength of the film comes in it’s opening act during the Decepticons’ attack on Autobot City on Earth. Making way for new characters such as the energetic Hot Rod (Judd Nelson) and the crotchety Kup (Lionel Stander), the sequence kills off several original characters including Prowl (Michael Bell), Brawn (Corey Burton), Ratchet, Ironhide (Peter Cullen), and Optimus Prime (Cullen).

The death of Optimus Prime is a seminal moment for those who grew up with the toys, comics, and cartoon series. With the Matrix of leadership passed on to a brand-new character in Ultra Magnus (Robert Stack), the Autobots attempt to survive unaware that an even greater threat in the world-eating Unicron (Orson Welles) is looming. Taking the battered Megatron (Frank Welker) and remaking him into his lieutenant Galvatron (Leonard Nimoy) along with new soldiers, Unicron hopes to crush the Autobots.

haunted-honeymoon-blu-rayHaunted Honeymoon may not be one of Gene Wilder‘s best movies, but it does feature a cast and set-up worth seeing. Wilder and real-life wife Gilda Radner star as voice actors for the radio drama Manhattan Mystery Theater. Plagued by panic attacks which could cost him both his job and a chance at marriage, Larry (Wilder) agrees to an unusual solution proposed by his uncle (Paul L. Smith). Heading home to the castle where he grew up for his wedding, Larry agrees to a form of shock therapy where everyone involved in the wedding party will be involved in the attempt to shock him to death and force him to deal with his panic and fear.

fools-planner-honor-dvdThis Romantic Comedy Triple Feature collects three relatively recent romantic comedies in one set which is perfect if you need to torture your boyfriend but not much good for anything else.

Made of Honor is a pretty bland reversal of My Best Friend’s Wedding with Patrick Dempsey discovering he has romantic feelings for his best friend (Michelle Monaghan) after she asks him to be the maid of honor at her wedding. Read the full review.

The Wedding Planner isn’t that much better starring Jennifer Lopez as a wedding planner who falls for the one of her clients (Matthew McConaughey) and ruins his impeding wedding to his fiance (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras). Home-wrecking has never been so sickly sweet.
