Inu-Yasha - Den of Wolves (Vol. 13) - movie DVD cover picture
KOGA


No it is spelled Koga on the dvds the translators spelled it KOGA in the graphic novels they spell it KOUGA.

This is a great dvd I really liked these episodes I probably won't get anymore of the single ones and just wait for season 2 to come out. It is too expensive to buy them separately I bought this one at borders for 25 bucks. The episodes on this dvd are The Man Who Fell in Love with Kagome, Kagome has been kidnapped by Koga to help him locate the sacred jewel shards and Inuyasha comes to rescue her but they get in a fight when Kagome helps Koga. The second episode is Two Hearts, One Mind, Kagome has returned home after her fight with Inuyasha. Both refuse to give in and apologize Kagome has feelings for Inuyasha but thinks he's in love with Kikyo. The last episode is Trapped in a Duel to the Death, while searching for the sacred jewel shards Inuyasha and company are led into a trap they head into a battlefield where the wolf demon tribe had been fighting for jewel shards and were all killed Koga, the wolf tribe leader comes across them and thinks that his sworn enemy Inuyasha has killed them all and the get into a fight.

There aren't really any extras except the Japanese promos for these episodes and a cast list.

I really like these episodes I just got this yesterday and I've already watched them twice

A Bug's Life (Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The best DVD I've ever owned


This is probably not going to surprise anyone-- This is simply an excellent DVD, in every scale. The first disc contains the movie itself, which is transferred from its original, digital source. The picture quality is unbelievable. Not one spot comes up during the movie, not one scratch appears-- because this wasn't transferred from film. This is the way A Bug's Life should be watched. The colors are amazing, bright and contrast eachother perfectly. The sound is also unbelievable-- this movie challanged my 1.5 surround system perfectly. Unlike some other movies I've seen, where the two rear speakers are only used about twice in the movie, A Bug's Life uses them almost constantly-- You can hear the crickets and cicadas all around you in many of the scenes, Hopper's gang are flying at you from behind; Even with a simple scene like the "Royal Huddle" the ant's footsteps are coming from around you. The first disc contains a Cinemascope widescreen version and a pan-and-scan version. I'll have to say that if you don't have a widescreen TV (I don't), you probably should forget about the widescreen version here as it is aspecially small. Besides, the PSP version was edited digitally in a very special way, even described on this DVD-- you hardly miss anything in the PSP version because of that special editing. If anything, you actually get to see more detail. Also on the first disc are two special audio choices, Music Only (cool) and SFX only (VERY cool), and a director's commentary (quite cool, although not the best I've heard. John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton and Lee Unkrich seem to talk too much about the story, which sometimes makes it sound as if they're just describing what you already see on screen.)
(I'm not going to give review to the movie itself here-- In short, it is definitly a 5 star movie!)
The second disk is where the real fun begins. I've never seen so many extras, with so many choices to choose from. It's almost confusing-- You not only get to see how they made the movie, you get to literally see how they developed EACH AND EVERY character in this film. It's astonishing. You can also hear how they edited the sound, see how they made the PSP version so good, see how they made the outtakes at the end (and also see the outtakes by themselves, clean, full screen and with no credits to interrupt), see an interview with the characters themselves (which is simply hilarious), and... See Geri's Game in all its glory. And there's even more.
Basically, if you don't have this DVD, you WILL buy it. Otherwise, what's the point of having a DVD?

Lost - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Way beyond TV


Yes, it's great drama, great acting and great scenery, but LOST is so much more. It's chock full of mystery 10-levels deep, with metaphors, biblical references, historical references, symbolism, clues hidden everywhere - in character names, background props, dreams. The entire premise of the show is a mystery, but it's not David Lynch style, where you can NEVER actually figure anything out. Instead, the producers have made it possible to make educated guesses on what's really going on. Plus, everyone is mysteriously, unknowingly connected and the audience has to figure out those connections, sometimes through fleeting clues. It's absolute genius. There is nothing else on TV that can drag me away from my books, or my weekly cinematic movies. I'm extremely busy and each moment of my time is precious, but I would definitely give LOST more than one hour a week if it were available to me!! I'm not usually a TV fan, but this is *must see* TV!

Star Trek - The Original Series, Vol. 10, Episodes 19 & 20: Arena/ The Alternative Factor - movie DVD cover picture
Two Classic Episodes for a Classic Series


"Arena" - Episode 19 - This episode features a duel between our Capt. Kirk and the Gorn. An interesting plot, surreal music, location and the Gorn character give this episode a wonderful campy feeling. Great episode to watch at pitch black night!!
"Alternative Factor" - Episode 20 - An excellent episode that deals with the orignal crew being thrown into unfamilar territory. A man named Lazarus is thrown into an odd state of flux where him and his counterpart switch between a positive and negative universe. An insane Lazarus on one of the sides is bent on destroying both universes. They both eventually meet to fight in the gap between universes eternally. Great epsiode that explores a more complex concept of the universe than the crew usually deals with!!

Unbreakable (Vista Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Shyamalan creates a terrific hero


You wake up in a rather murky setting. The stretcher beneath you creaks under your weight as you raise yourself into a sitting position. The curtains around you are mostly closed, leaving an opening the size of a small door. On the other side, you see a man lying on a hospital bed, completely wrapped in bandages, and there is a growing spot of red that tells you the man is hemorrhaging. He is about to die. Everything is kind of fuzzy, but you know that you and the dying man were both victims of the same train wreck, but while he is wrapped up like a mummy and quickly approaching death, you look at yourself, and there isn't a scratch on you.
The idea of something like this happening prompts a series of thoughts to streak through your mind, and each of these thoughts is captured in director M. Night Shyamalan's follow up to his masterful "The Sixth Sense": "Unbreakable." And I think I have to answer one question before I really dig into the guts of this review: No, this one isn't as good as "The Sixth Sense," but it's still ridiculously good.
"Unbreakable" examines a world of possibilities that is very similar to comic books. If someone like Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) exists in the world with the horrific disease of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (a genetic disorder that makes bones very easy to break), then the logic of a comic book reading mind would deduce that there must be someone at the opposite end of the spectrum. Someone whose bones are unbreakable. Someone who doesn't get sick. Someone whose destiny is to utilize his or her powers to protect the rest of us.
Elijah (a biblical reference to one who would pave the way for a savior) Price believes that he has found his opposite when a train crash outside Philadelphia kills everyone on board except for one man, who escapes totally unharmed. That man is David Dunn (Bruce Willis, with the double-sounding hero name like Peter Parker or Clark Kent), an ex-college football star who now works as a security guard at the local football stadium. One day, after the train wreck, David finds a note held under the windshield wiper of his car, and in it is scrawled a question that starts the true meaning of the film coming into focus: "How many days of your life have you ever been sick?" David makes it his mission to find out, and he makes some incredible discoveries along the way.
M. Night Shyamalan does not disappoint his followers with this film. Sure, the film has its implausible moments, but that is more than forgivable, not just because of the believability of the Willis character, but because this film is, in essence, the first comic book movie that wasn't based on a comic book. The cinematography is outstanding, giving this movie the look and feel of those impossibilities that we love seeing in comics. Shyamalan shows he is quite an established shot-maker, the best I've seen since Spielberg and Sam Raimi, and he uses his music (composed by Maestro James Newton Howard) to accent every scene perfectly. And it wouldn't be an M. Night Shyamalan film without a surprise ending and some really clever sequences.
"Unbreakable" is an uncommonly absorbing film that gripped me from beginning to end. The visual style is incredible, the characters are believable, and the acting is stellar. The ending, I thought, was rather tacked on, but nevertheless effective: It doesn't cheat. If I had to pick one movie star to be a superhero, it would be Bruce Willis. Why? Because he never fails to be cool in every single movie he does.

Sex and the City - The Complete Third Season - movie DVD cover picture
The best you can get


Sex and the city (SAC) has it all. Four sucessful women who show the world they have it all. 4 different caracters that reflects how hard is for a woman ,who lives in a city like NY, to date guys.
This is one of the greats achivements from HBO and definetly a must-buy.
You can't get bore of watching SAC. It has just the exact levels of eroticism and sex not to fall into a vulgar show. Besides, the scripts are so smart and not to mention the perfomances: Sara Jessica Parker as the smart columnist, Kristin Davis as the conservative lady, Cynthia Nicholson as the judgemental and last but no least (totally the opposite) the marvelous acting of Kim Kattrall as the bitchy, self-confidence, man-eater Samantha Jones (She's hot and she rules! ;)).
If you had had any experiences on bad dates, bad ruptures, bad romances, etc, etc, etc, .... watch this show you. Wheather you are a guy or a girl, you will identify with the comical situations.
Can't wait for the Fourth Season on DVD!
