The Black Cauldron: 25th Anniversary DVD

Back in 1985, Disney released The Black Cauldron, based on a book series called the Chronicles of Prydain. But the movie wasn’t a happy musical, and it didn’t do too well at the box office. Now the film’s back on DVD, and with similarities to The Lord of the Rings it’s set to be more popular than it was 25 years ago.


The Story

The Black Cauldron starts with a story of how a legion of invincible undead warriors were sealed in a black cauldron. Whoever has the cauldron can use the warriors to destroy the world.


Main character Taran dreams of becoming a great warrior – but he’s just an assistant pigkeeper. The pig he takes care of, Hen Wen, is special. When he touches water, he can show where the black cauldron is and who’s trying to find it. When Taran gives Hen Wen a bath, the pig shows him that the evil Horned King is after the black cauldron.


This is Taran’s chance to show he’s more than a pigkeeper. So he sets off with Hen Wen (who he must keep safe at all costs) to find the black cauldron and keep it out of evil’s hands. Unfortunately, he gets distracted and Hen Wen gets pig-napped by two dragons who take him to the castle of the Horned King.


Will Taran be able to save Hen Wen, protect the black cauldron and become a great warrior? Of course, there’s also got to be a girl involved (this IS a Disney flick, after all) - Princess Eilonwy turns out to be a big help in Taran’s quest.

Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
