LG Promotes Their TV With Pirates

I loved watching the new Pirates movie.  I have been on the fence about getting a 3D tv.  I can’t afford one right this minute, but if any of the tvs in the house die I will need to get another tv.  I happened to see a commercial for LG lcd display that started with a clip from the Pirates movie.

I don’t know if I am ready for 3D as I am not totally sure if 3D is really ready for me.  I am someone that likes the movie theater experience, but I haven’t seen any tvs that have the same.

What is your input on this topic?

Tron Combo Package Review

I used to love watching the original Tron movie, and even more enjoyed playing the video game.  We were given the opportunity to review the combo package that is available.  The combo pack comes with Blu-ray,Blu-Ray 3D, DVD, and Digital Copy.  The most impressive part of this package is the 3D version.  Not many videos come with a 3D copy included.  This is a bold move, and one that will work.

If you haven’t watched the original Tron, then I would definitelly suggest you get this package so that you can watch them back to back.  There were a lot of things that I understood better after watching the original version, then watching the Blu-Ray verson.

This movie made a lot of sense because the movie actually continues in the storyline.  There are no major missing pieces as you find in a lot of “Series” movies.  Jeff Bridges did an excellent job in his part in the movies.

I definitely recommend this movie to any Sci-Fi fan, and even more than that any “Series” fan.  I know I will watch this movie many more times, and one of my friends also will watch this movie many more times.

Captain EO…Why Bring Him Back Now?

swooshEO

I always enjoyed watching Captain EO when I went to Epcot.  I also saw it in DisneyLand.  What I can’t understand is why so many people are trying to petition to have Captain EO brought back.  The 3D movie was well done, and cost far more than what a 15 minute show should have cost.

Even though Michael is gone there is no reason for Disney to want to put him back up.  What I have in my mind is this… Neverland could be cleaned up, and they could setup a 3D theatre there.  People would most likely pay admission to go to Neverland.  They have a win-win situation.  The Jackson family gets some revenue from it, and people are happy.

Just say NO!  If we say YES, then Disney will have to pay out to the Jacksons, and such action could cause Disney to maybe want to increase ticket prices.  I may be wrong, because they may have a standing deal with the Captain EO movie so that they don’t have to pay out royalties.

I will have a very clean cut of the movie up on my site soon.

I think Disney should keep everything they do in-house so that they don’t have to pay royalties to others like this would result in.

Brief Rundown of the Movie…

Movie was directed by Francis Ford Coppola

Movie was produced by George Lucas

The story was designed by Disney Imagineering

Starring:

  • Michael Jackson
  • Anjelica Huston

Captain EO is a movie about a team of space travelers that are on a mission to deliver a gift to the queen of a land.  When they get there they almost don’t get to deliver the gift because a piece of equipment broke.  After the team fixes the equipment Captain EO delivers.

The effects were superb for the time.

Captain EO was only shown in 4 theatres worldwide…

  1. Epcot Imagination Pavilion – 1986 – 1994
  2. DisneyLand TomorrowLand – 1986 – 1994
  3. Tokyo’s Tomorrowland – 1987 – 1996
  4. DisneyLand Paris – 1992 – 1998

You can still find some good buys on Captain EO merchandise at EBay.
