Dallas - The Complete First and Second Seasons - movie DVD cover picture
One of the Greatest TV shows Ever


straight up no other character on Tv has moved me like JR Ewing.Larry Hagman nailed Him to a letter T."Dallas" was truly ahead of it's time with all the twisted dysfunctinal things that could go on within a family.Dallas was the country version of the "Godfather" but it went one step further than that for TV.Dallas was on the Pulse from 78-84 easily.I can't wait to get this show i've been waiting a few years for this.Classic TV&Easily for me between 1-5 Amongest the Greatest TV shows Ever.One of the Baddest TV Casts as well.strong writing,directing,etc....&all of the Ladies were Foxy&Kept My Eyes Glassy.Props to the SouthFork Ranch.

The Changeling - movie DVD cover picture
The BEST ever suspence horror film!


It is not gory, sorry, I like gore, but at the same time gore need not be a crutch to mess with people's heads, you can acheive the same effect with Skinny Puppy, a walk down a long dark windy woods, or watching a movie like this. I've yet to see one better in the Ghost Story Genre. 6th Sence and Legend Of Hell House do not compare!

Halloween - movie DVD cover picture
One of the greatest horror films of our time.


If there is one movie you do not want to watch by yourself on halloween night with every light in the house turned off, its Halloween. Possibly the most eerie movie ever made. When me and my good friend were 10, we watched this movie exactly 11 times in 5 days. If that didn't tell you just how good it is, let me go into detail. The acting was the best. Jamie Lee Curtis really knows how to get scared without actually being scared. The movie was filmed at the right time. The colors were awesome. At night there was this midnight blue sort of shade casting down on the characters. At day it just had the Halloween feel to it. By that I mean there were dead leaves on the ground, peoples houses had jack-o-lanterns on them, and there were trick-or-treaters running around. Micheal Myers was not really scary when it showed him doing nothing, but he was freaky when he was trying his best to catch people. Micheal was doing more of a new scary movie thing, he was walking slowly and calmly, he hid in the dark where nobody could see him until he slowly appeared in the shadow and grabbed his prey. I hope I encouraged you to buy this wonderful movie. If you don't have it, and I encouraged you to buy it, go for the "Divimax 25th Anniversary Edition." That edition is the best.

The Japanese drawn the characters but the American's wrote it.


Megaman should be megaboy cause really his human living tissue looks like a boy and his size and voice. Megaman is a robot who saves the world from the evil Dr. Wily who creates robots to take over the world. Megaman had sidekicks his robot sister Roll and a robot dog Rush.

Hollywood Greeting - Valentine's Day - movie DVD cover picture
Romantico!!!


Some of the best kisses of the silver screen play as Andea Bocelli sings Con Te Partiro - (For those not familiar with this song you'll recognize it immediately upon hearing it - especially if you ever watched the Sopranos.) This little disc sure puts you in the mood! I can't wait to play it on Valentines evening, candles, champaign, chocolate and Bocelli, ought to do the trick....After you've seen it a couple of times you'll notice how well the cuts are timed to the music, and how the clips build in intensity as the song crescendos. Very nicely done. It leads one to think of other great screen kisses, that didn't make the cut - or couldn't be licensed. It's a nice discussion topic for a Valentines night!

Brother Bear (2-Disc Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A Truly Breath Taking Film


Disney new animated movie "Brother Bear" is absolutely breath taking. The story line was well thought out, and it had a theme, which was not rammed into your skull. The movie was very pleasant, and at times, very saddening. The artwork is one of Disney's Best!
Brother Bear takes place in the Pacific Northwest. It involves three brothers, of which, Kenai (the main character) is the youngest. Kenai is about to become a man, and he has a ceremony, for which he will receive his spiritual totem. This totem is supposed to guide him through life, and it represents that persons true character. After the ceremony, Kenai realizes a bear has taken some fish that the brothers had caught. In anger, Kenai goes and hunts down the bear. In the fight that ensues, Kenai's oldest brother is killed. Enraged by this Kenai seeks revenge for the death of his brother. Because of his anger and rage, Kenai upsets the "spirits", and is transformed into a bear. This is where Kenai's adventure begins, and where he sees the world through "Another's Eyes".
This was an absolutely terrific movie that Disney made. I did feel it was a little short though; here is some main points, which I felt, made the movie so good:
In Disney's Brother Bear, each character was drawn to express great emotions. To be able to portray a characters emotion, you need exceptional artwork. By this, I mean you need to be able to draw expressions, body movement, and other effects to pull it off. In this movie, Disney pulled off this with amazing results. For example, when Kenai (as a bear) would jump, get upset or move quickly, you would see his fur "puff" up. This was amazing, because it portrayed a weight to him, and it was used to express feelings that would be hard to do without it.
Another intriguing fact has to do with the screen size. For the first fifteen minutes, you will notice that the movie does not take up the entire screen. After a certain point (when Kenai is transformed into a bear) you will notice that it goes to full wide screen. What is cool about this is its representation of "opening ones eyes". This is supposed to make the viewer feel that "Kenai" is now seeing through "another's eyes". At first, I couldn't figure it out, but when I saw the switch it made perfect sense.
Rutt and Tuke are a very good comedic relief for the story. There was always some humor in the story, but Rutt and Tuke always brings a smile to your face when they appear.
The theme in itself was also extremely good. What I really like about the movie is how they did the theme. Some other Disney movies would pound the theme into your skull. This would often drive me crazy. Brother Bear, however, does no such thing. They mention the theme in the beginning, then let it fall into the background, without having the characters restating the theme every ten minutes or so. This pays off really well, because the viewer understands the underlying theme, and it makes the movie that much better. Instead of announcing the theme, they let the characters of the movie tell the theme through there expressions.
I liked Phil Collins music, but liked it even more after I saw the movie. His music has the ability of bringing forth emotions and feelings with his songs. When played, the music and animation would really begin to [pull] at your heart. They did a great job in creating music that would really reach out and express the characters feelings to the audience.
There is one section, in which i am disappointed at, the comments on the animation. I've read many reviews, where they say that the animation is nowhere near as good as "Finding Nemo" or "The Lion King". I strongly disagree with those ideas.
For one, you can't compare "Finding Nemo" to "Brother Bear" because they are two different styles of animation (One being 2D and the other 3D). They use computer animated sections in this movie, but they are not intended to "steal" the show; They simple mix in with the 2D work.
Second, have you reviewed previous movies made by Disney? The artwork is no less brilliant then their previous movies. They have artist, who like what they do, and try to do the best they can. Like i said above, if you watch the movie again, pay close attention to the colors, the style, and the animation that is put forth into the movie. I hope i did not come out to seem harsh, but i just felt the animation is getting some unfair treatment (although everyone is entitled to there opinions).
I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves a Disney Classic. This movie is breath taking; your kids will absolutely love it. I can also guarantee that most parents will have a pleasant time watching the movie. I give Brother Bear a solid 5 Stars!!!
