Robinson Crusoe (The Wild Life) Trailer


Robinson Crusoe always thought he'd enjoy his life if he were an explorer, taking to the sea and discovering new lands. Robinson is dispatched to a large ship and his adventure is about to start - little does Robinson know that his life is set for a far wilder adventure than first expected. 

As Robinson's ship hits bad weather, he finds himself as the sole human survivor of a terrible accident. Now Robinson and the captain's dog are the only ones to make it to land. Marooned on a beautiful island, Robinson doesn't know it yet but he's being watched by the local inhabitants, Tuesday the parrot and a number of other animals who are perplexed by this strange creature who can willingly shed his skin (his clothes). 

Setting up home, Tuesday and the rest of the animals are on hand to help build a new home but before they can get settled together, their way of life is threatened by two pesky cats who have decided that they should be in control of the island and its goings on. Robinson and his new winged and furry friends must find a way to protect themselves from the felines who are out to cause mayhem!

After being offered shelter, soon Thunder becomes part of the magician’s wacky family which also features a grouchy rabbit and his sidekick mouse.

The House Of Magic Trailer


When Thunder is abandoned into the street by his owner as a kitten during a house move, he finds himself in the home of an eccentric aged magician named Lawrence and his family of friendly mechanical toys on a stormy night which gives him his name. Lawrence takes him on tour performing at parties but it soon becomes clear that he's much more popular than the magician's old pet rabbit, Jack - a fact that doesn't sit well with either Jack or the magician's mouse Maggie. However, the furry team must unite for the sake of Lawrence when trouble arises in the form of his nefarious nephew, who is attempting to sell the large house while Lawrence is away at hospital. Thunder and his new friends decide to try and convince him that the house is actually haunted, with Thunder at the forefront of the ploy. The question is, do Lawrence's unusual family have it in them to save his livelihood?

Haunted Castle Review


Weak
More freaky and odd than scary, the latest 3D IMAX film, Haunted Castle, is not what it sounds like. Don't expect a funhouse-style ride through a house of horrors. Instead, get ready for an outrageously bad plot filled with ear-piercingly bad music -- yikes, there's even a really lame live band sequence at the end -- and laughable dialogue. But, who's really going to see a 3D IMAX film for a great storyline and acting?

The best reason to see most IMAX films, especially the 3D variety, is to ooh and ahh at the giant screen antics. Through the clouded lenses of the bulky IMAX visor, tree limbs will jut out into your face, demons will fly straight into your body, and you'll even feel like you're peering precariously over the edge of the castle's gargoyle-dotted rooftop. Even if the film's CG animation is obvious from the beginning, it comes off looking much like an elaborate video game, and is far less bothersome than some of the film's most ridiculous element: story.

3-D Mania! - Encounter In The Third Dimension Review


Good
IMAX is nauseating enough without throwing 3D into the mix, isn't it?

Shot using state of the art 3D motion picture technology, we've come a long way since those red and blue glasses. 3-D MANIA! features all-digital technology that puts up to 37 layers of images in a scene to literally jump out of the screen and into your lap.
