Classic


This was as much a classic as Star Wars and Battle Star Gallactica. I was shocked when I found that animation master Ralph Bakshi had nothing to do with this film. The three minutes of lost fottage did not scare me, but it made me think... a LOT. The cab driver was cool, Den was awsome, Captain Stern was just plain funny, B-17 was mysterious, the druggie aliens were hilarious, Taarna probobly broke the world record for most accomplished without making a sound, and the Lost fottage "Neverwhere Land" gave me a funny feeling that I will never forget. Just those three minutes changed me forever.

Different way of thinking.


Despite what any of you may think, I rated "Chariots of the Gods," as a "5" because it distracts your mind from the main stream if only for a second. Throughout history, there has always been people not willing to except the way that things are said to be. It is in my opinion that no matter whether you feel that this book is based on facts or not, that it will leave you doubting mainstream theories. I am in no way saying that this book in itself will change anything but that it left me feeling refreshed of the traditional historical writings and made me wonder, if only for a second, if everything is as "most" people say. Or, could the far "history" be just a fanciful story?

I don't know and neither do any of you, so just read the book. Even if you only read it as its own fanciful history, just read it and let your imagination run free for the first time in years.

DVD's great, but the dvd jacket is cardboard!


Just be aware that the cover is made of cardboard, so even as new it looked worn at the edges. How Paramount could do this to such a classic movie is beyond me. The industry standard would have been alot better.

Brendan Fraser is a Hottie


I don't see the point in lying to you all. Everyone else might hate this movie and think it is pointless, dumb, and unbelievably predictable. But when you are an almost fourteen year old and have a fetish for Brendan Fraser's butt? It rocks. The character castings are fantastic, and this movie really pulls you in. I don't recommend it for people over sixteen, though. It's sort of a teenage angst kinda thing. I'd buy it now, but I don't have a credit card. Or any money...

Tekken: The Motion Picture - movie DVD cover picture
This was no wasted effort!



"Tekken: the motion picture" is a five star gem in my book. The animation is good, by far the best for a movie made in 1990 (although the sound affects for the blood when it was show, was downright silly). The plot was good, it explained why Kazyua Mishima hated his father Heihachi Mishima so much and Jun/Kazuya's relationship from childhood to adulthood. I was surprised to discover that Lee Chaolan was Heiachi's adopted son, along with the discovery that Anna and Nina Williams are feuding sisters.



I'm still new to Tekken. Jun Zazama was well characterized as was Lei Wulong (who's fighting style reminds me of Jackie Chan). And the few other fighters made brief appearances on the screen to my relief. The action is good, but it isn't like the combat in the video games (naturally), it is a cartoon movie after all.



There is only on strange thing in this movie; and it's Chaolan's "R-experiment" which are humide dinosaurs, but don't let that ruin your enjoyment of this movie. If you can watch Jurrasic park then you can watch this. There is also swearing in this movie, so think twice before letting a younger child watch this.



This DVD contains English, French, Japanese, and Spanish dubs with English subtitles. The Japanese dub is surprisingly good, while the English dub is lacking a good amount of character and talent. I'm very disappointed in the reviews I saw for this movie; they were slanderous to say the least. Then again if you not a fan it's mostly your not going to like this movie.


There's no need for a character development in this 60 minute movie, the creators [Namco] have already done that in the video game. So you should know the characters pretty well if you've played either Tekken III or Tekken IV. If you like the Tekken video (or arcade) series then rent this movie, you won't be disappointed if you've got an open mind. [a 5 out of 5]

Spider-Man 2 (Widescreen Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Best Superhero Movie Ever


There are not many sequels that can beat the first movie, but to me this movie is greater than the first one. This movie is where Peter learns about how to balance his hero and his human side. I was moved to almost tears in a few scenes,especially when Harry finds out who Spidey really is and he is fighting whether to kill him or not. Mary Jane is another whole issue knowing that he loves her/also realizing he can't have her as he wanted,and finally telling his aunt how is uncle died. I really enjoyed this movie and I highly recommend it. It teaches values in a non-preachy way. See this movie you will enjoy it. Can't wait for the third in the series.

Macross Set 1 (Vols 1-3) - movie DVD cover picture
Proto-Culture Revealed


Well I'm sure there's a lot of non-Macross people out there. I own both series. I will say this, if you ever wondered about the story plot. The key is in the proto-culture. What is it?? What does it mean? Robotech fails to explain it or even make it relevant to the story. Macross will do that for you. It'll take you deeper into the story of Macross, Zentradi, and Proto-Culture.

Proto-Culture is truly an explanation to creators of the human race. Most people may not see a relationship here, but Macross really does give you a sci-fi look at how life came about on earth. The SDF-1 is truly a lost ship which belonged to the creators of human life. In it also lies secrets that the Zentradi desire. What the TV series doesn't cover is the Meltrandi who are enemies to the Zentradi. Both women and men at war for centuries trying to find an edge to win the war. The discovery of the SDF-1 or Alus (in Macross II) really holds keys.

Proto-Culture is the human race. By design the creators left in-nate messages having the Zentradi preserve Proto-Culture. The idea of kissing, love, and nurture are not known and exposed by Lynn Minmei. Britai, Zentran leader listens to his innate messages and decides to learn from Macross, and test it from time to time. But later Minmei's love and songs which have already lifted the spirit of the people of Macross, starts to influence the Zentradi's. Later, it is known that the Zentradi, Meltrandi, and Humans have the same blood types, DNA, and structure. The creators started life on Earth to bring back a peaceful world, relying on Harmony (no pun intended).

This story really is an attempt to realize life outside earth and possibly that an alien race landed on earth and settled to plant the Human race. If known, I'm sure the religious right would ban this series, but it is Sci-fi and so goes the ever battle between science and religion.

The continuity of Macross is great. This series really explains a better detail about proto-culture, the zentrans, the human race, and simply love songs that influence spirits to come together.

Highly recommend it to sci-fi romance viewers. Macross is a remarkable feat. AnimEigo should be credited for bringing this to DVD when others were unwilling. This series, like Space Cruiser Yamato, Star Trek, and Star Wars will take you into an adventure to be passed on through the generations.

Amelie - movie DVD cover picture
Hopelessly Romantic -- Paris Never Looked Better!


"Amelie" is the most wonderfully charming film I have ever seen. It's quite possible that, upon reflection, I'll consider this to be hyperbole inspired by a recent viewing, and I'll give "Amelie" a more reserved rating, like "it's one of the best films I've ever seen."
"Amelie" tells the story of the title character, played with a seeming impossible combination of daring, reserve, romanticism, idealism, and fear by Audrey Tautou. In a performance where she is speaks very little (one of her struggles is that she is an observer of life who must eventually find a way to "live" her life rather than watch it go by), Tautou nevertheless steals the show.
Well, almost, 'cause the city of Paris gives her a run for her money. If you are a fan of Paris, you will absolutely love this film. Lovingly shot, the film gives us a Paris that is so perfect that it cannot exist in real life. Colors are slightly exaggerated through clever filters and lighting, and the charming little details (such as the elaborate cursive menu on a restaurant window) are evocative of the film's romantic spirit.
One of the most original plots in years, "Amelie" tells the story of a woman who has always sat on the sidelines. As a child, Amelie was so nervous when her reserved father touched her (only during medical examinations) that her pulse raced, leading to the misdiagnosis of a hyperactive heart. As Amelie grows into womanhood, she has always sat and observed, and with a wonderful imagination has created an alternate universe for herself. This imagination carries through to her adult life, and manifests itself in delightful ways (no other character in cinema could melt away into a splash of water at the sight of her true love).
Through a discovery of a long-lost box of childhood trinkets and the sad-yet-blissful restoration to its rightful owner, Amelie resolves to bring cheer and zest to the lives of her fellow Parisians. Not content to whisk a blind man down a crowded street, narrating all the peculiar sights, sounds, and smells of daily Parisian life that he can no longer fully appreciate, Amelie takes it upon herself to be, at times, a match-maker, an instrument of revenge against a local bully (hilarious comeuppance alert!), and a re-writer of heartbreak.
One of the most entertaining subplots of the movie has to do with her father, who even though he has the freedom to travel (he is a widower, brought about through the most freakish of accidents) refuses to do so. Amelie sends his beloved garden gnome on a travel across the world, including pictures sent from abroad to her mystified dad.
Of course, a romantic spirit like Amelie's can't avoid falling in love. But when she falls in love, it can't be a straightforward seduction. Elaborate courting, hilarious misunderstandings, and a boiling-over romanticism make for a powerful conclusion to a charming film.
Note: the DVD does not have an option for listening to a dubbed English version - if you don't speak French, you're going to have to work with subtitles. I don't speak a lick of French, but listening to the dialogue in French adds something to its romance, so I think this is an improvement rather than a burden -- if I had the option, I'd still go with the subtitles (this works with other foreign films, too, like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Like Water for Chocolate," where dubbing just doesn't work). The DVD has some good extras, too -- we're not talking a Peter Jackson treasure trove, but they are worth it.
Easily one of my favorite movies, and one that you will want to watch again and again.
