Now Available - The Sorcerer's Apprentice

No, it’s not the terrible Sorcerer’s Apprentice movie with Nicolas Cage, come on, we wouldn’t do that to you. It’s something MUCH WORSE than that!

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice comes from the same childlike-whimsy mill that brought us The Little Unicorn and Merlin: The Return. Speaking of Merlin: The Return, Merlin returns in this movie, too. There’s just something so compelling, and public domain, about that character! But this time, he’s played by the endlessly magical Robert Davi. And evil sorceress Morgana? None other than Kelly LeBrock, here to finally settle the question posed by Ghosthouse: who’s more popular in Denver, her or Kim Basinger? We’ll find out at last!

We’ll also find out if the little blonde boy who’s in all of these movies fits in at his new school, reconnects with his father, and impresses a girl with his card tricks (okay, we all know that last one’s not happening). Okay, Merlin has returned three more times since we started this paragraph, so hurry up and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for The Sorcerer’s Apprentice!

So it's basically Die Hard meets Steven Seagal's ex-wife. Sounds like pure joy.

And I always had Davi as a Bond villain more than anything. One of the cooler ones since he wasn't interested in world domination, just running his little piece of the world.

I thought it was a ripoff of The Karate Kid with the main character getting victimized by bullies and then learning how to defend himself from an old man who lives nearby. The Merlin and Morgana parts of it were just there as decoration.

I meant since Davi was in Die Hard (as one of the same named FBI agents) and the guys referenced it. And there are plenty of 'Die Hard on X' movies, like Icebreaker. I was borrowing the phrase rather than this being Die Hard With Magic.
And now I've given someone at ScyFy the next movie of the week idea.
