HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
Dreamworks animation has often been regarded as the “Poor man’s Pixar” since its animated films are more or less a hit or miss. Well, after the sleeper hit "Monsters Vs. Aliens", th …

Prince of Persia Sands of Time
   Video game to film adaptations. We all know such efforts are always found wanting and video games are hardly ever given the respect they deserve. So why do we still always have high expectations …

Army of Darkness/Xena #1: Why Not?
ARMY OF DARKNESS was Sam Raimi's sequel to his EVIL DEAD flicks which had long been fan favorites for their horror and for their cheerful abuse of the film's leading man Bruce Campbell. There were those …

What Dreams May Come
This is my favorite movie of all time. The VERY best of the best!      I saw this movie in the theater when it was first released more than a decade ago. It was a movie I'll always …

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
   I knew very little about this film when I went to the theaters to see it. I had seen a couple of previews online, which got me excited. The movie looked very promising. I expected a fantasy/science …

Lord of the Rings_The Return of the King
   The only thing bad I can say about this movie is that I didn't want it to end! Just as good as the first two (I wonder why this was the only one to win Best Picture). If you are unfamiliar …

The Last Airbender (2010)
I have always said that like him or not, M. Night Shymalan makes an effort to try to be original. Yes he does, but lately, it can be said that he is experiencing a sort of a creative slump, that his latest …

Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
After the mega-success of the “Harry Potter” adaptations, Hollywood is in the hunt to find the next family-friendly fantasy franchise that can generate huge profits. They gave it a shot with …
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
I titled my review of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4) "Harry Potter grows up" because J. K. Rowling had done a masterful job of bringing Harry from a little boy to a strong young man over …

This type of anime while attractive to most is not the typical genre I am drawn to but no doubt can it pull you into the fantasy genre of anime. I actually ran into this series on the 5th episode on a …

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
Two of the things I like about Zack Snyder: His ability to try and give tribute to the source material he is adapting to the big screen and to ability to give it the respect it deserves (despite some …

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
I was unable to figure out what all the fuss concerning Harry Potter was about. As a fan of fantasy and someone who works with children, I made a promise to read the first book in the series and discover …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
Having secured a seat at a local sneak peek premier (all it took was dressing up like Mad Eye Moody!), I had the grand opportunity to check out Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I last night.  …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1
So, Harry James Potter finally grows up and the series is coming to a halt? Hmm, not sure if I like that. Harry Potter was not only legendary but he's truly cute and adorable as a child. I know, …

Admittedly, I haven’t been the biggest fan of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise (though I still saw each and every film after “The Sorcerer’s Stone” on dvd); I thought …

I just recently saw this movie, and have not yet seen the second or third, but I absolutely love this. This is a pretty much perfect film. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, it's everything …

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
It has been many years since I’ve read the first “Narnia” book; and I honestly cannot say whether I’ve read the second or third books since then. Well, quite honestly, I never …
