The hot dog story was one of the best parts.

Kids doing synchronized underwater swimming in their hockey suits. Must be The Dead Zone (1983). This film is seriously overdue for a Blu-ray release. I have watched the VUDU HDX version so I know the 1080p version is out there.

You are correct. Yes, I wish they'd release it on Blu-ray so I could pick it up.

Phantom of the Opera (1943). The pretty Susanna Foster. Kind of a sad life story full of ups and downs.

Correct!

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

A boyhood favorite starring Kirk Douglas and Anthony Quinn. In fact it was your review on Barabbas that triggered my memory of Quinn in this movie. Rented the Netflix DVD and watched it recently. Bad quality, looks like it was ported over from the VHS version by Lionsgate. Scratchy sound with crackles and pops. This film needs a remastering from a much better source.

With all of the negatives out of the way I still found the movie entertaining. The opening credits point out that the movie is based on Homer's Odyssey so don't expect a literal translation. My favorite scenes still include the giant Cyclops (son of Poseidon) and the finale which you aptly described as taking names and kicking butt.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has an interesting "NOTES" section on their website where they list out quite a bit of trivia on this film.

This film is often credited with kicking off the "sword and sandal" wave of movies that followed including the Hercules films.

Had to be quick! The only ones I get are the more recent ones, and I lose out on most of them because I don't see them before someone else does. I got lucky today! biggrin.gif

Although I hardly watch it myself, the animation style informs me that it's likely Archer.
