Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Harry's back, another year older but saddled with the typical teenager's conceit of believing that he is a decade wiser. He can be excused some of that, after all during his fourth year at Hogwarts School …

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
I understand that this book has sold more copies more quickly than any book in history, and that Amazon took pre-orders for around $3 million for it. Impressive. The story itself is not quite that awe-inspiring, …

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Everyone knows that when you wait anxiously for a movie for a long time your expectations grow higher by the minute and you often go to the theater and become disilusioned due to your exagerated expectaions. …

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition
For those who don't "get" the humor in this movie, it may seem like a 90 minute detour into one of the outer circles of hell. Actors playing multiple roles, idiots smacking coconut shells together to …

The artwork of this film is astonishing. Set primarily in the forests of ancient Japan, the scenery is lush with life, vivid with depth and detail. The scenery is in some cases so gorgeous it will take …
