His Dark Materials Trilogy
There are many books in the world which are profoundly disrespectful of other people's dearly held points of view, but that doesn't make them any less valuable or worthwhile - even parts of the Bible …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Simply put, "The Two Towers" lives up to the standards the filmmakers set for themselves in the first film. It is remarkably faithful to the books, and it is an excellent film in any estimation.The style …

Coraline (novel)
"Coraline" is one of those rare young adult novels which works well for both children and adults. I read it first to myself and then to my kids, and I was surprised to find that they were as delighted …

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition
Of all the films and television programs produced by airborne members of the Flying Circus, I consider this to be their greatest achievement. Co-authored and then co-directed Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones …

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 …

Monty Python and the Holy Grail Special Edition
This movie is funny, it has so many funny lines, that you can taunt your enemies for years to come, using lines from THe Holy Grail. Monty Python may be a bit of a refined humour, that has it's fans and …

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
The book was well worth the wait - I started reading it and had difficulty putting it down! Without giving too much away, I laughed, and yes, I cried too. Some questions were finally answered regarding …

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, …

The Hobbit- First Edition
The art is fantastic the story is more complete than one would expect.This is the trade paperback version of a 3 issue set that came out about 12 years ago. You would have to go to Tim Truman's Wilderness …
Stardust (novel)
"Stardust" won the Mythpoeic Award for best adult fairy tale. After all, fairy tales are not just for kids. And they're not for wimpy adults, either. Just read "The Hard Facts of the Grimms' Fairy Tales" …

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
In a nutshell: Chris Colombus can't direct for toffee. This is a dreadful rendering of a damn good read. Acting: By and large, dreadful - as you would expect from twelve year olds, but very disappointing …

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 …

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)
It's now been some years since the "Harry Potter" books first came out. Unless I am mistaken, book # 5 is due on shelves soon. In addition, two major motion pictures have now been produced.During this …
