Title: Prancer

Year: 1989
Director: John Hancock
Writer: Greg Taylor (Writer)
Rating: G
Length: 103 Min.
Video: Widescreen 1.85:1
Audio: English: DTS-HD Master Audio: 2-Channel Stereo
Subtitles: English

Stars:
Sam Elliott as John Riggs
Cloris Leachman as Mrs. McFarland
Rutanya Alda as Aunt Sarah

Michael Constantine (1927) as Mr. Stewart/Santa

Plot:
A wounded reindeer and a precocious young girl form an everlasting bond in Prancer, a heartfelt drama about devotion, friendship, and the holiday spirit.

Jessica Riggs (Rebecca Harrell) plays an angel in her school pageant … but she becomes a real guardian angel when she finds an injured reindeer in the forest. Convinced that the deer Santa’s one and only Prancer, Jessica vows to nurse him back to health and return him safely home. However, before she can carry out her plan, Jessica discovers that her father (Sam Elliot) has made another, very different plan of his own! But as Jessica races to help her antlered friend find his way back to Santa in time for Christmas, wondrous changes begin to occur in the lives of the people around her … changes which lead to a conclusion that will warm your heart on even the coldest winter’s evening.

Also starring Academy Award winner Cloris Leachman, Abe Vigoda, and Michael Constantine, Prancer is an enchanting film full of "heart and gumption" (Roger Ebert)!

My Thoughts:

This one was is a holiday drama. I personally found it a little slow for my taste. But not a bad story. It is worth the time put in to watch it. It is one I can see watching again... though not one I will feel the need to watch every year.

My Thoughts:

I really liked the story here. The whole cast did a wonderful job. Though with a movie called "White Christmas" I would have liked to have seen it centered around Christmas more then this was. But even with that being said, I had a great time watching this film. It has a fabulous ending. The film easily gets you to care about the characters and I am talking about all the major characters. This is a true classic that I will be looking forward to watching every year for my Christmas marathon.

My Thoughts:

Another Hallmark Channel Movie.This one originally aired November 28th, 2009. While I am sure there is some notable names in this one.... none that I am familiar with. Out of the 4 movie box set I got this in... this is the one I was most concerned about enjoying. While it is a slow paced film... it is one that grew on me. The longer I watched t the more I liked it. So of you try this one, be sure you stick with it.

Extras:
None

My Thoughts:

This is a Hallmark Channel Movie that originally aired November 19th 2011. This is however the first time I ever seen it. Like most TV Movies this has some familiar TV actors. In this case it is Dean Cain from "Lois and Clark." As I am sure you expected this film is a version of "Miracle on 34th Street" with a side story of a romantic comedy. A fun story with likable characters but like most romantic comedies it is a predictable movie. But it is the journey to the ending that makes a story worth it.

It was an old Marx Brothers film... At the Circus. Funny thing when I downloaded the profile there was no musical or music in the genre for that one. I did add musical to it locally.

Topic Replies: 17, Topic Views: 958
OK... just out of dumb curiosity. I watched a movie that lasted an hour and a half. While there is music... there is not a lot. Maybe a total of 3 or 4 songs. 2 Definitely replace dialog... characters just singing out of no where. Then another 1...maybe 2 where they are putting on a show.

Would YOU consider this a musical or no?

For a brief moment there I forgot how subjective genres are. Think I will just decide for myself and just save it locally... not worry about the online.

This is something I thought I had a handle on until I downloaded a profile that looked wrong to me... then I filtered on the genre to see a lot that seemed wrong to me. But then again this is not my best subject matter so I thought maybe there was something I wasn't taken into consideration. So figured I better ask before changing a bunch of profiles.

The way I always thought was...

Music: Concert discs and such
Musicals: Films with lots of singing and dancing... a lot of times coming out of no where.

Here is a list of films in my collection listed as Music that I thought would be Musicals. Any and all help on this subject would be appreciated.


Dirty Dancing



Moulin Rouge!



Walk the Line



The Blues Brothers



Blues Brothers 2000



Ray



The Blues Brothers Double Feature



American Dreamz



A Mighty Wind



Footloose



The Wedding Singer



Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit

I found the exact opposite of what Merrik to be true. I seldomly see the same cases  (upc and all) in complete series set. Far more often I see all the discs in a single case. Be it keep case or a book or what have you. So there is normally a lot of differences. Case type, release date, cover images, a lot of times differences in overview.

I do see what people are saying when it comes to just putting previous releases into a complete series slip cover. But as I said... in my experience (and I collect a LOT of complete series sets) this is seldomly the case.

The Rules do say not to profile shorts or episodes. In my eyes that would be enough to tell me not to give it it's own profile. At least not for the online database.

I would consider it a TV episode and as such not have it's own profile per the rules. Just like I see the Masters of horror a TV Series and those being episodes.
