In yet another Requested Review (we’re almost done, folks), Sofie gets to review the super awesome new movie The Hobbit! …Er, sorry, it’s the decent 1977 Rankin-Bass animated TV movie, The Hobbit.
Author: Sofie Liv
Sofie went to the theater to see one of the few movies she could see at the same time as the rest of the world (dubbed into Danish, alas). Here’s her review of the epic Rise of the Guardians, starring the voices of Alec Baldwin as a Russian Santa Claus, Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny, Chris Pine as Jack Frost, and Jude Law as the Boogeyman!
It’s another Requested Review! This time, Sofie reviews The Muppets, the 2011 movie starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams… some kind of lizard-thing called Kermit, and several other weirdos.
Sofie goes back and digs through her pile of Requested Reviews for a rather special request: The original, unaired pilot to what went on to become a very successful show, Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender!
This time Sofie has a special… freakish guest as she looks back at all three animated incarnations of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: the beloved 1987 show, the less-beloved 2003 show, and the entirely brand new 2012 Nickelodeon show. Sofie and her companion compare the three shows, and she even reveals her favorite turtle!
UPDATED Nov. 7, 2012 with commentary from Sofie!
Sofie revisits the movie that started a billion-dollar sparkly vampire franchise, 2008’s Twilight! Join her as she relives those first magical moments when codependency true love blossomed between Edward and Bella!strong
the final installment in her three-part classic horror special, Sofie takes a
look at what might be the most influential classic of them all: James
Whale’s Frankenstein, starring Colin Clive as the mad scientist that
started it all, and horror legend Boris Karloff in his iconic role as the
Sofie is joined by the Fear Fan, who gets a bit uncomfortable with her… eccentric behavior. But that doesn’t stop the two from reviewing The Wolf Man starring Lon Chaney, Jr as the poor cursed soul who becomes a werewolf, and Claude Rains as his strict father.
It’s Halloween, and Sofie has decided to exploit the horror classics… in more ways than one. First up, it’s a special black and white episode as she takes on the classic that started it all, 1931’s Dracula, starring horror legend Bela Lugosi in his iconic role as Count Dracula. Featuring special guest appearances by all your favorite Agony Booth reviewers!
Together with the Porn Critic, Sofie witnesses such exciting things as… a marriage! And a pregnancy! And pedophilia! Oh, Twilight, what will you come up with next?
It’s the absolutely indescribable dystopian sci-fi adventure, or something, Zardoz, starring Sean Connery as a brutal who falls from a giant floating head into the land of immortals where he proceeds to… do stuff.
Join Sofie AKA the Scarlet Defender as she drags in asks the Film Renegado very nicely to do a crossover with her, and the two review Puss in Boots, starring Antonio Banderas as the swashbuckling kitty cat from the Shrek movies.
It’s the 1996 made for American TV movie Doctor Who, where Sylvester McCoy passes the sonic screwdriver to the next generation, namely the Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann. Also, Eric Roberts shows up to completely ruin the movie with his appearance as the dreaded Master.
This time, Sofie chooses to focus on something good from the DC universe, as she watches the now legendary animated series Justice League, where Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, and the Flash all team up to fight the Body Snatchers and the machines out of War of the Worlds in the stunning three-part pilot episode, “Secret Origins”.
Sofie watches the children’s fantasy movie Bridge to Terabithia, starring future Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson as a kid who’s an outsider at his school, and AnnaSophia Robb as the new girl in town. They form a magical friendship, and together they build a bridge to the fantasy land of Terabithia.
In her second requested review, Sofie takes on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, starring Michael Cera as a dorky adult-olescent whose life resembles old Nintendo games. You probably think her review will be much different than the dreaded Mr. Mendo review of the same movie, but will it? You gotta watch and find out!
Sofie examines the most famous comic book super-heroine of all time, Wonder Woman, by looking at the awful, awful way Hollywood and the TV industry treated the character in the 2011 David E. Kelley-produced NBC pilot starring Adrienne Palicki as Wonder Woman, which was so bad that (very fortunately) it never aired.
It’s the first of Sofie’s requested reviews, and to her great delight, it’s a movie she really likes: Zorro, The Gay Blade, a fun homage to the classic swashbuckler genre, starring George Hamilton as both Don Diego Vega AKA Zorro, and also his gay twin brother Ramon Vega AKA Bunny Wigglesworth.
This time on Legacy Hunting, it’s J.R.R. Tolkien’s renowned fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings, later turned into an animated feature by Ralph Bakshi, and of course, also turned into one of the most epic fantasy trilogies ever, by director Peter Jackson.
In Legacy Hunting, Sofie is not just reviewing one movie, but exploring the legacy left behind by an important franchise. This time around, she looks at Tintin, the series of comic books about a young reporter and his dog, created by Belgian artist Hergé.
