Rescue from Gilligan’s Island

Rescue from Gilligan’s Island is just one of the many comedy movies available to watch free online at ViewLorium.

Rescue from Gilligan’s Island made in 1978 capitalises on the popularity of the earlier TV series and sees our castaways STILL stranded on a deserted island. When a decaying Russian satellite crashes onto the island the Professor (Russell Johnson) uses a key from the satellite to make a barometer. Thanks to the new device he learns a massive wave will swamp the island, so in a desperate attempt to ride the disaster out the castaways lash all their huts together to form one structure.

When the wave hits the island the hut is washed out to sea. Once at sea Gilligan (Bob Denver) decides to cook a meal and accidentally starts a fire and nearly burns the floating hut down. While everyone is trying to put the fire out and save the hut they don’t see that a passing Navy helicopter has seen the smoke and has called for help.

Once back on dry land in Hawaii everyone is happy to be rescued, but a LOT has changed in the years they have been away and they all struggle to find a way to fit in. To make matters worse two Russian spies want that key from the satellite back – the problem is Gilligan is now wearing it around his neck!

Following on from the classic TV series Rescue from Gilligan’s Island is just as *corny* but still a lot of fun.

Northpole Review

The Northpole is of course where Santa and Mrs Claus live and it is a magical place, it has grown into a huge city that survives on the power of holiday happiness. Unfortunately with people having work commitments, family commitments and life in general getting too busy – The North Pole is in trouble, the magic of Christmas is dying. Who can help save all the wonderful and special traditions of Christmas?

A young boy Kevin – can – if he can get his protective mum Chelsea to take the time to rediscover the magic of the season. Kevin enlists the help of his teacher Ryan, a mysterious elf-like girl Clementine and a gospel singer named Josephine. Kevin is determined to prove that one small voice can change the hearts of many.

The underlying premise of the story is to remind us not to lose our Christmas spirit, it’s the joy and happy thoughts we have at Christmas time that helps the North Pole grow and to be strong, it’s what gives the elves the *strength* to make the toys for all the good boys and girls.

Clementine – one of Santa’s elves wants to help bring back the magic of Christmas and she notices that small beacon of hope in young Kevin. Kevin and his mum have just moved from Wisconsin to Colorado – for her work, but Kevin is scared that Santa won’t be able to find him in his new house. Together Clementine and Kevin realise if they can do one small thing, Santa will find him. They decide to reinstate the Christmas Tree Lighting – which was cancelled due to lack of interest, his Mum Chelsea is happy for her son, but she is worried he has an overactive imagination as he believes he is doing this to help Santa. Encouraged by his teacher Ryan Wilson, Kevin is worried that to bring the Christmas spirit back – he will have to start with his mum.

North Pole was written by and for the Hallmark Channel in America, it was released in 2014 and runs for 84 minutes and stars Tiffani Thiessen (Beverly Hills 90210), Josh Hopkins (Perfect Storm & GI Jane) and Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Just Go With It)

There are great Christmas movies and not so great Christmas movies – this one is in the middle, while it doesn’t break any new ground – it’s the *typical* a jaded woman who has lost her faith in love – the single mum who meets *that* single guy with a heart of gold. While this one isn’t going to become one of those *holiday classics* it’s a good movie, just take it for what it is – a better than average made for TV Christmas movie.
