reviewed King Arthur (2004). October 19, 2004
King Arthur - The Director's Cut (Widescreen
This movie was a lot better than I thought it would be. Though I always thought of King Arthur as belonging to a later period, this movie does a decent job of capturing a much earlier period in history …

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 with the books …

Tailchaser's Song
If you like cats. If you simply like a good story. If you like a book you cannot put down after reading the first page...this one is for you! I first read this book in 1987 and have to admit to having …

Peter Pan
This first thing that I realized about this movie was that had I been a child when I watched it, I would have thought it to be one of the greatest movies ever. However, I'm a few years removed from being …

The Mists of Avalon (2001)
The Mists of Avalon is based on Arthurian legends and a novel by Marion Zimmer Bradely. I generally like Marion Zimmer Bradely's books, so I thought a movie based on a book of hers would be enjoyable. …
reviewed The Silmarillion. September 23, 2004
The Silmarillion
Pros: Wow.     Cons: Whoa, confusing...     The Bottom Line: It's going to take more than one reading to get everything in this book - but it's worth it!     …

Each time I watch this movie, it seems to get better. I watched it with my teen children years ago and now have the pleasure of watching it with my grandchildren. It has lost none of it's charm. This …

The Mists of Avalon (2001)
If I hadn't read Marion Zimmer Bradely's "Mists of Avalon" upon which this mini-series was based, I sincerely would have liked this 4 hour presentation. But having read and thoroughly enjoyed the novel, …
reviewed Sleepy Hollow (film). September 07, 2004
Sleepy Hollow
"Sleepy Hollow" is fun. Tim Burton outdid himself on this one. I've always enjoyed Burton's work, but I felt that he might have gone a little overboard with the second "Batman" flick. In the case of the …

The Wizard of Oz
Even as a jaded adult I can still enjoy the movie The Wizard of Oz. When I was a kid, each year it came on I eagerly anticipated watching it. The story of Dorothy transported to the strange Oz and her …

Monty Python's Holy Grail
Nothing to say about the film itself - simply a word of warning about the box set: it appears from the product listing to be simply a copy of the ordinary 2 DVD edition - which retails for less than half …
reviewed Ship of Magic. August 03, 2004
Ship of Magic
"Ship of Magic" is a little over 800 pages long and tells a slo-o-owly developing story from the multiple viewpoints of a family of liveship traders, the liveship herself once she is awakened, plus various …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
I've never read the "Hellboy" comics. I have nothing to base a comparison on as such, so I'll review this movie as a person who just happened to pick this one up not knowing what to …
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Pros: Well written, exciting story, it's Harry Potter!     Cons: Dull in some places, Harry's moodiness     The Bottom Line: Another great Harry Potter book, but …

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
Naysayer after naysayer tries to write off this film, and those which followed, as well as the books, as fluff for kids. Others went as far to say that this franchise had satanic or evil qualities about …

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
"Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" pulls off something that only "The Empire Strikes Back" has done. It's better than the first film! Not only is the story more interesting(though the first was …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The extended versions of these movies are even better than the originals. They're so good, in fact, that I wish they would skip the standard edition and just go right to the extended one. Great movie, …
reviewed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azka.... June 03, 2004
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Pros: Great FX and cast.     Cons: Plays as a setup to the next film, may be to scary for some.     The Bottom Line: A classic tale that will delight fans of the …

The film, of course, is magnificent. Featuring the denouement of all that has come before, with great actors to play the parts, gorgeous visuals to enchant us, fantastic special effects, and a glorious …

Hellboy Special Edition DVD
This movie was highly entertaining though a little hard to follow. Not being familiar with the comics, may have been the reason for my difficulties in following the plot.Hellboy is found during a raid …
reviewed Excalibur (1981 film). May 23, 2004
Excalibur (1981)
At times the acting pushes the envelope a bit, especially Nigel Terry in the title role. But Helen Mirren defines erotic evil as Morganna, while Cherie Lunghi is equally appealing as the fair wife of …

Edward Scissorhands
Tim Burton was born in 1958 & raised in the suburban city of Burbank California. Burton was a recluse & very shy. He loved to draw and actually had a sketch of the little boy with the scissors for hands, …

Lord of the Rings - The Motion Picture Trilogy
Wait and buy the extended versions, which follow the original novels much more closely. In both of the previous installments the longer version was vastly superior to the theatrical relase. I can't imagine …

Anyone growing up in the 60's can remember that this movie was an annual must see tv event! Even 40 years later it still is as fresh as when it was first released. They don't make em like this anymore …
