DVD front
I must admit that the first time I saw Lord of the Rings, I fell asleep.. assuming that my falling asleep meant I didn't like the movie, I didn't attempt to watch it again until I saw this DVD set and …

American Gods: A Novel
This book seems to have everything: old "gods" fighting new "gods", the dead walking, animals that talk, temporal displacement, eerie dreams, etc.. It sounds all quite confusing, and in the hands of a …

Beauty and the Beast (1991 movie)
Just when we thought nothing could top last year's deluxe edition of SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, Disney have outdone themselves. This sparkling new 2-disc of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST has been well worth …
reviewed The Phantom Tollbooth. October 23, 2002
The Phantom Tollbooth
I think the buildup that I got for this book was too high to allow me to enjoy it fully. Had I not read the voluminous streams of unabashed praise from r.a.b.bers (that is the rabble that inhabits rec.arts.books) …

Clash of the Titans
I remember watching this film in awe and rapture the first time when I was at school, studying Greek mythology. This classic good-defeating-evil story is always a dizzying adventure from start to finish.CLASH …

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
It is always difficult to translate the Big Screen to the small screen (no matter how good your TV and stereo are) but, in the opinion of this reviewer, the drama of the movie comes across well. Much …

The Devil's Backbone
THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE is a visually elegant, beautifully photographed, seamlessly written and directed tale of ghosts. As the film's narrator explains, ghosts are bad deeds that never go away, are like …

Peter Pan
PETER PAN remains one of Disney's most fondly-remembered films. Despite appearing in the same decade as Mary Martin's Broadway and television version, it is neither lessened nor ignored in comparison.Peter …
reviewed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.... May 21, 2002
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
I can't think of a single movie in history that had so many preconceived visions to conquer. Not since the decision to cast Tom Cruise in Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire" had there been so much …
reviewed Clash of the Titans (1981 film). April 07, 2002

Clash of the Titans
CLASH OF THE TITANS is not a film to watch if you want to learn about Greek mythology. The movie (though closer to those tales than Disney's HERCULES) is filled with a hodge-podge of all kinds of Greek …

His Dark Materials Trilogy
... About a month ago, desperate for something I could loose myself in, I picked up "The Golden Compass." It was in the "young - mature" or some-such section of the bookstore, and I was put off until …

Krull
... KRULL isn't a terrible movie (believe me, there are a lot of worse films out there, even in the sci-fi field... However, nor is it that good of a movie either. The premise of the film is interesting: …
