Billy and Benboo:  The Monsters and the Magic Wand, Learn Mandarin Chinese Beginner Level 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Entertaining and Educational

I've reviewed the video tape Billy and BenBoo and really like the Multi-Cognition Approach on which it is based. I also like the organization of the story. I believe that both children and adults who deal with children will find it entertaining while learning Chinese.

Closer (Superbit Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Realistic and Relevant

A lot of people are complaining that Closer isn't a perfect happy love story, but that's the whole point. This isn't some dumb, cheesy romantic comedy full of things that never happen, this is a look at how tons of people unfortunately really do treat each other. I think it's realistic and intelligent. I particularly liked one of it's little lines in the previews that said "If you believe in love at first sight then you never stop looking". The movie definitely explores that idea and it's a relevant one considering the amount of infidelity in our society.

When Harry Met Sally... - movie DVD cover picture

This movie is in one word--perfect. It has humor, wit, romance, and heart; a very rare combination of qualities that is even rarer achieved in cinema! I can watch it countless times and never bore of it!
Director Rob Reiner is worthy of being nominated for best director of all time. Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal are superb together. They are the perfect choice for this incredible script. No other actors could have pulled this off as successfully as they did together.
Everyone should own this movie! I have a collection of over 100 movies and if I could only keep 10 this would be one of them! I could go on forever! But no need; it speaks for itself.

The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (Disney Gold Classic Collection) - movie DVD cover picture
Underrated Disney Classic

The Adventures Of Ichabod and Mr. Toad falls in the line of quality animation by Disney through the 1940s, even though the budgets were considerably smaller than the big ones such as Bambi. Containing an adaptation of The Wind in the Willows and a retelling of the Sleepy Hollow story, this feature is one of my favorite Disney features and is a definite around Halloween. For all that is worth, this still remains one of the most underrated and obscure of Disney's animated classics. This is evident because it did not receive the DVD treatment like some of Disney's more popular titles, but fortunately Disney has given a fairly nice release with this version.

First is the story of J. Thaddeus Toad, of Toad Hall. Mr. Toad develops a mania for motor cars, much to the dismay of his friends Moley, Mr. Rat and MacBadger. Toad is framed for stealing a motor car, so it is up to the 4 to clear Toad's good name. Though more overlooked than Ichabod, it is a fun adventure. Featuring good animation and the Disney magic we recognize, this excerpt from The Wind in the Willows is brought to life in memorable fashion.

Next is the retelling of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Schoolmaster Ichabod Crane is new to Sleepy Hollow, and instantly becomes a popular fellow to the envy of Brom Bones. The two vie for the lovely Katrina, the governor's daughter, with Ichabod upstaging Brom in every way. After hearing the tale of the Headless Horseman, Ichabod embarks on a spooky journey home, constantly looking over his shoulder for the Horseman himself. This one is a must for Halloween. Most adults will probably find this still charming, while it isn't too scary for the children. Overall it is an excellent 1/2 to the feature that I highly recommend.

The extras on this disk are scarce, but that is to be expected with a hidden gem among other hugely popular movies. There is a DVD storybook, Singalong song and the classic short "Lonesome Ghosts" featuring Mickey Donald and Goofy as ghost-busters from the Ajax company sent to a haunted house to get rid of ghosts. There is also a game, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Here is another treat that may not be obvious. Play the game and get all the answers right to unlock the classic short "Susie the Little Blue Coupe", a fitting extra to go along with Toad's Wild Ride.

The sound and picture quality are pretty good, though not to a restored state like say "The Lion King" or "Beauty and the Beast". A charming feature with a few nice extras make this a nice DVD to own for any Disney or animation enthusiast.

Blind Guardian - Imaginations Through the Looking Glass - movie DVD cover picture
A great DVD from a good band

1st off let me say that I am not a rabid Blind Guardian fan. While i do enjoy them, and own most of their cd catalogue, it took me about a year and a half to really get into what they were doing after my 1st BG purchase, "Nightfall In Middle Earth". I started to enjoy them, but still thought "N.I.M.E" and "A Night At The Opera" were a bit over-produced as far as all the different background guitar and vocal parts were concerned.

As I am a musician myself (not anywhere near being professional), I enjoy watching other musicians perform, so i decided to take a chance and purchase this DVD "Imaginations Through The Looking Glass". Wow, Blind Guardian sounds better live, with a more raw, stripped down sound.

This DVD is a quality product throughout, from the packaging to the Live show to the extra disc. The video and sound are excellent (sure, you can nitpick here and there where the camera was fuzzy or the sound wasnt quite "there" for a split second)and Blind Guardian was in top form, albiet the show IS taken from 2 different nights, but the editing was so good i didnt notice till half-way thru the disc. The bonus DVD is full of behind the scene footage, from setting up the festival stage, to band interviews and day-of-show goings on. The 2nd disc IS in German, but a decent DVD player should (some seem to have had problem) be able to subtitle it.

Overall, this is a great DVD that any power metal fan should have, and fans of metal in general should enjoy it if they like a good live performance regardless of genre.

Great Holiday Movie!!

At my work we had watch a movie day over Christmas and this was the movie that we got to watch. I was worried, but couldn't wait to be away from work for a little bit. As they movie went along this is one of my new favorite Christmas movies of all time. IT has a lot of heart, and humor. It also is filled with emotions, and love. I really think this is one of the better movies that Will Farrell has done. AND Any man who can wear those tights and get away with it - come on!!

Wit - movie DVD cover picture

One of the most mesmerizing films ever -- and I'd never heard of it. Well, no wonder! Emma Thompson, Mike Nichols -- and Audra McDonnell as a gift to patient care. This is the best film I've seen this year; and I see a lot of movies and read a lot of books -- I just don't keep up with theater, obviously.
This movie is not for the faint-hearted, although I didn't lose it until an unexpected act of kindess and wisdom.
