    You're one of my favourite reviewers on here. I always enjoy your ... uniqueness.

    I think I'll make that song my new ringtone.

    SQEEE! I had a sqee of nostalgia at that moment! I haven't seen "The 12 labors of Asterix" in YEARS!!! My mom has all the comics and I saw this and the Cleopatra one. Thankyou Mistress for helping me relive fond childhood memories! :D

    Truth be said,some of these old Disney comedies seem to take place in a vacuum reality of their own where America is still firmly set in 1950s Conformism. Just look at The Strongest Man in the World from 1975. Kurt Russell plays the cleanest college tween imaginable in a decade when tweens were high as kites and procreating like rabbits.

    Please do the Merlin Jones flicks one of these days.

    Another absolutely wonderful review! Hit me right in the childhood while appealing to my grown-up(???) sensibilities.
    I loved all the minion bits and the idea for a hook. Definitely a worthy finale for the best season of Hagan Reviews yet!

    Can't resist commenting on this, I've studied pirate history academically for over five years, and to see "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash: Piracy, Sexuality, and Masculine Identity" by Hans Turley referenced as an authority on pirate history is...funny because how misguided that book is. In terms of scholarship, doesn't have much of anything to stand on. If you want to know more about pirate history (that is accurate), go with almost anything else.

    End of my pirate nerd rant.

    This was a great review. I saw this when I was a little kid as a rerun on the Disney Channel's classics. It always struck me as odd that the heroes were cheating their asses off. See any of their movies set in Medfield college, like the earlier mentioned Strongest Man in the World where a competition of strength is won with horse steroids. Starting with The Absentminded Professor, Disney had a real hard on for a lot of 'ends justify the means' stuff.

    I remember that movie!
    probably the first time that ever happened to me with your reviews :D
    I loved it as a kid - pirates, magic and pirates - what's not to like?
    it also helped that I was around 6 when I first saw this one (and that the dubbed version sounded more...rougher? tougher? different from the original...hearing this Blackbeard speak really took me out of it for a second)

    Great job, great review with a ton to love, and really have to appreciate the effort.

    I'm not sure what you'd call that doctor's treatment plan. Percussive administration of film stock? After Effects therapy?

    Also, I've never heard anyone pronounce "taco"; the way you have...

    Also, the only people in America who gamble on low-rent college track events are compulsive gamblers who would bet on anything. They'd bet on whether or not the track events are being manipulated by a 200 year old boozing, thieving rapist-mass-murderer ghost regardless of whether such things even exist.

    Actually, Blackbeard living for a time in Pennsylvania is historically accurate, as he got himself a Pardon for his acts of piracy in 1718. It didn't last more then a few months before he returned to Piracy, however.

    I don't know if there's anything on a professional level, but you CAN find someone willing to lay down a few bucks on just about anything.

    Close, but I didn't hear the words "Treguna mekoides trecorum satis dee." Then again... chaos theory to explain a great reference, works for me. ^^

    The song is called "The Good Ship Venus". I love REAL sea shanties that leave nothing to the imagination. If you can stomach the full version, you can listen to it here:

    You can get the song by purchasing the album, Rogue's Gallery.

    Loved the review, I have this on DVD, I LOVE Peter Unstinov.

    ...and now I'm off to listen to The Good Ship Venus repeatedly. How on earth did you find such an amazing and hysterical song, Mistress?

    The review was quite amazing and hysterical too. You're right, it is a strangely uncomfortable mix of fact and kid-friendly-fiction. The "damn this is hot" comment had me doubled over laughing.

    On Halloween there was a huge gambling bust on children's football in Flordia. With bets of over $100,000 Its not legal, but it happens. Hell the police didn't even make a arrest until ESPN did a special about it and made them look like fools.

    Was that a Bedknobs and Broomsticks reference toward the end? Nicely done.
  • captaincalvincat  - Good movie and awesome review.

    Granted, I was just a kid when I watched the movie the first time, but I liked its goofy- and sillyness.

    But yeah, the review pokes fun of the right stuff... thats why both are enjoyable. *thumbs up*
