Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)
Pros: Wizards, witches, flying broomsticks, goblins, dragons, humor... fantasy for everyone!     Cons: Some parents may be wary of the whole magic scene, but no worries, I promise!   &n …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
When I went to see this movie with my son I thought I was in for a long snooze. How wrong I was. This movie grabbed me from the start. With amazing cinematography, special effects, acting, and a storyline …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
I have seen all three films and consider them to make up the greatest trilogy ever and this film is my favorite of the three! I have seen it several times. The band that got together on the journey to …

Across the Nightingale Floor
Nicely done and fast moving, this tale conjures up an imaginary medieval Japanese world that is both convincing and absorbing . . . even if it never really existed.    Recounting the …

Jim Henson's The Storyteller ~ The Complete
I grew up watching Jim Henson shows: from SESAME STREET to THE MUPPET SHOW to FRAGGLE ROCK. However, THE STORYTELLER remains the Henson series that I remember most vividly and I believe it had a huge …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING seemed unsurpassable. But it happened! And that's because now we have THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS, a moviemaking masterpiece second only to …

American Gods: A Novel
Quite honestly, I am not sure. Gaiman's premise sparks with imagination---as I am unfamiliar with most of the writers that he thanks in his Acknowledgements---as to whether or not it is his own imagination …

How The Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Being no fan of post-In Living Color Jim Carrey, I expected to thoroughly detest this movie, and I didn't. It was watchable - a mite hypocritical, perhaps, being a (somewhat) buried morality tale about …

DVD front
Long had fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" novels waited for a film worth making. The first in New Line Cinema's adaptions of Tolkien's novels, THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE …

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Having thoroughly enjoyed the ride at Disneyland on numerous occasions, I expected to have a great time seeing this movie and was not disappointed...except by its length which is about 15-20 minutes too …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
I liked the theatrical version of "The Two Towers." That being said, the Extended Edition is definitely a stronger, more consistent film. It tightens up so many of the loose ends, and gave more reason …

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Once again, Peter Jackson has outdone himself with the Special Extended DVD Edition of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS. Besides the original nearly three hour film, this edition includes just over …

Once in awhile, you see a movie that just absolutely blows you away. It carries you away emotionally as you get involved in the story, and it also astounds you for the achievement in moviemaking that …

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 …
reviewed Coraline (novel). July 21, 2003
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 …
