Treasure Planet - Picked this on Blu-ray finally from Amazon. Hadn't watched it since I was it in theatres. I remember being disappointed with it then, and I blamed that on having read Treasure Island just the week before. This time, I found it very hard to get into. The main character didn't appeal to me just like the main character in How To Train Your Dragon failed to interest me. They're both unappealing characters to me. But I stuck through it. And then, B.E.N. comes along and DRIVES ME INSANE. I almost turned it completely off! Who knew Jar Jar Binks had a predecessor? Made it through the end but was disappointed that it still didn't work for me. Did love the voice work tho', especially by Emma Thompson and David Hyde Pierce.
Max Max & The Road Warrior - Picked up the trilogy on Blu-ray Tuesday and watched these two over the past couple of evenings. I haven't seen these since college when they were first released, and I admit to having a negative "thing" for Mel Gibson since his bad press of recent years. But I had a great time seeing young Mel in his first films. Compared to how over-the-top action packed films are since these were made, they're tame BUT the fact that all the destruction is REAL is mind-blowingly awesome! I plan to watch Thunderdome tonight.
