Sean Connery VAing a dragon? A dragon who isn't a bloodthirsty killer, but kind, noble and even wisecracking? A CGI dragon that actually looks REAL? Hell yeah! With a Scottish dragon, a dragonslayer who's both honorable and a scoundrel (although he does say "Who asked you to intervene! I had everything under control!" like he's passing a kidney stone) and a jolly monk with some mad skillz with the bow and arrow, this is a definite must see for dragon fans, and those looking for a movie with laughs, tears, cheers, may want to look into a rent.
Masters of the Universe (PG)
You know something's wrong when a movie that's supposed to be about the world of He-Man takes place almost exclusively on Earth and is comprised more of movie clichès than material from the He-Man universe. I honestly forgot this was a He-Man movie until close to the end when Lundgren yells "AH HAV DA POWAH" (I was originally irked by the way Lundgren talked like he had rocks in his mouth, but when I learned he was Swedish I forgave him). And don't get me started on "SSJ Skeletor".
I love the way this movie is about "Save the Cyborg who holds the answer to curing THE PLAGUE *bum bum bum*" when there's a whopping three seconds of background as to what the plague actually is in the entire movie. The movie is mostly a showcase of Van Damme's fighting skills with a little skinny dipping on the side and an ending that's even sloppier than the actual movie. The only interesting parts in the movie are Gibs' (Van Damme's) flashbacks, but aren't interesting enough to merit bothering with this.
Universal Soldier (R)
Yeah, I'm on a Lundgren/Van Damme binge here. This one was actually much better than Masters of the Universe and Cyborg. The back of the case makes it sound like a poor man's Blade Runner, but it's actually a different concept. My only major complaint is the ending they went with. The alternate ending (included in the Extras section of the Special Edition) wraps up the movie much better and does something with a concept that's wasted with the theatrical ending. The theatrical ending is basically there to leave room for sequels which have as much reason to exist as Dragonheart: A New Beginning.
