    It's sad that when I see Michael Madsen's face, the first movie I think of is Free Willy. It DID come out when I was five so I suppose that has something to do with it. I haven't seen it in around twenty years so I figured, what the hell? Did it hold up? Fuck no, but it was fun going back.

    Even as a kid with a passion for animals I found this mostly boring.

    Big nostalgia watch for me with my kids. This is the first time I've seen it in its full 2.35 aspect ratio and not on a cropped VHS copy. Free Willy is a half-decent film at times which nicely delineates its themes. Willy and Jesse are both orphaned boys, etc. Ultimately it's a little too melodramatic, but still probably the best movie about a boy and his orca there is out there.

    A solid family movie. I seem to remember quite liking it as a kid.

    When maladjusted orphan Jesse (Jason James Richter) vandalizes a theme park, he is placed with foster parents and must work at the park to make amends. There he meets Willy, a young Orca whale who has been separated from his family. Sensing kinship, they form a bond and, with the help of kindly whale trainer Rae Lindley (Lori Petty), develop a routine of tricks. However, greedy park owner Dial (Michael Ironside) soon catches wind of the duo and makes plans to profit from them.

    Definitely a movie for the family, with good actors just like the scenery.

    When I was a kid Free Willy was one of two VHS tapes I owned. The other was Batman. Watching Free Willy tonight I realized even though I owned the movie I must not have watched it much as I remembered nothing about it.

    The movie takes place in an unnamed Washington town (at least I never caught the name) that was clearly the same town the Goonies was filmed. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this…
