I own all listed above on DVD except The Goonies, Scrooged and Assassins. I saw all the Lethal Weapons, Maverick, Superman and The Omen at the cinema. Wasn't impressed with the badly edited reconstruction of Superman II, the Brando scenes were the sole redeeming feature. If Donner had completed his work on Superman II back in 1980 would it have been better than the Richard Lester version? Now I'm not so sure.

2)The Omen

4)Lethal Weapon 1
5)Ladyhawke
6)Lethal Weapon 4
(Jet Li takes this a notch up on 3)
7)Lethal Weapon 3
8)Superman II The Donner Cut
9)Maverick
10)Conspiracy Theory

Maybe we should let Bill post his ratings first Jim, but than he probably knows by now what movies we'd go for and won't make much difference to his ratings plan.Posted Image

He did like Superman and The Omen though, so there is hope there.Posted Image

Philbert (Three's a Crowd) - B-

Solid animation mesh with live action and I'm a fan of William Shallert's work in Dobie and Patty Duke. The story is typical sitcom stuff - Philbert is Shallert's cartoon creation come to life. He tries to save Shallert from getting engaged to a woman who is secretly a harpy - and much of the humor hasn't aged well.

I saw this on Looney Tunes Collection, but didn't realize it was Donner directing. Interesting idea, but not very successfully pulled off. I'd rate this a bit lower than Brook does.

I completely passed out after the first half hour only to re-awaken for the last 15 minutes. I don't appear to have missed anything.

Well you didn't like the Lethal Weapons either Bill so no surprises there, biggest surprise was why you'd want to pay and see this at the cinema. I'm a Dick Donner fan (or used to be) and I can happily wait for this to pop up on tv. Posted Image

Jim, you said you were going to see this one, what did you think of it?
