    3-0 out of 5 stars less exciting than other seasons
    First of all , i'm a die hard Sopranos fan . I own all 5 seasons . Seasons 1-5 were all pretty good , some standing out more than others . My favorite episode was Seasons 3 Pine Barrens . Anyway , season 6 was pretty dissappointing for me . The Vito storyline was drawn out way to long . Everyone knew he was gay , but they seemed to devote half the episodes just to vito . They coulda tied that story up in one , maybe two episodes . It seemed the writer was trying ride off the success of Brokeback Mountain .Tonys near death experience was pretty good touch though . Especially the changes he made after his coma . Anyway , I hope the next half is better .

    3-0 out of 5 stars Half the season, half the quality of previous seasons...
    Season six, part one?Trying to make money due to a hiatus that should not have occurred, but who could blame them.However, I would of just called it quits on season six with 12 episodes and have a final season seven.I hope that when season six part two comes out, we will have the option of buying the complete season instead of buying part one and part two.As far as season six, it is by far not the best and this is regrettably being said by one of greatest Sopranos fans there are.I have always liked the writing, the acting and the plot.In fact, episode one of season six is one of the best episodes ever made, but for the most part of season six, part one, it has been lackluster to the point of almost boring on occasions.Yes, there were some good plot twists, some great acting and some very good writing that deals with subject matter not normally associated with this genre of television or movies.My rating of this box set or the first 12 episodes is a comparison with the first five "full" seasons in which I own the box sets.The show is aging, maturing to the point where you know you are being led to its finale.What the show is doing well is that it is not leaving really any clues as to what to expect for part two--which my hope is that the show rebounds and finishes with a literal bang.God save Tony and please give us a movie for the real finale.For those of you, I hope you TIVO'd the first 12 episodes like I did, that way you don't have to buy "part one" and wait for the entire season to end and hopefully be able to buy the entire season for about the same price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still the Sexiest Show
    This show is completely inexplicable to me.Despite the fact that the people and the stories are so evil and sick, it still turns me on.I cannot figure out why, but I just know it's true.Tony, I love you!I can't help it.I'll probably keep loving you even after somebody whacks you! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Interpretation of Irving's Tale
    Ahh - the perfect Halloween film!Better than many of the old classics. This is Tim Burton at his best.As a child, I loved the gothic tale of the Headless Horseman - and this rendition never fails to ring the bell.Johnny Depp is well cast as the somewhat nervous, eccentric, but always ernest Ichabod Crane.Christina Ricci is beautiful and Christopher Walken is perfect as the Horseman.While the film is gory - after all there are lots of heads being lopped off - it's not really scary.I wouldn't recommend it for children under the age of 12 however - especially those with overactive imaginations. The old animated Disney version is better suited for the little ones.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining... a real Halloween delight !
    "Sleepy Hollow" Has just the right amount of everything to make it quite a memorable movie. The atmosphere that Sleepy Hollow portrays makes this movie
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Spooky Flick for the Fall Season!
    Let me state right off that, although I respect Burton as a great filmmaker, I'm not a fan of his films; they usually strike me as eminent examples of style over substance (which, in a sense, isn't his fault since he's not usually the writer). Plus the films he usually picks to direct simply aren't my cup of java (for instance, I have no plans to catch "Edward Scissorhands" anytime soon). But who can deny his great visual talants? This guy knows how to make a film LOOK good, that's for sure.

    Editorial Review

    Mel Brooks scored his first commercial hit with this raucous Western spoof starring the late Cleavon Little as the newly hired (and conspicuously black) sheriff of Rock Ridge. Sheriff Bart teams up with deputy Jim (Gene Wilder) to foil the railroad-building scheme of the nefarious Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman). The simple plot is just an excuse for a steady stream of gags, many of them unabashedly tasteless, that Brooks and his wacky cast pull off with side-splitting success. The humor is so juvenile and crude that you just have to surrender to it; highlights abound, from the lunkheaded Alex Karras as the ox-riding Mongo to Madeline Kahn's uproarious send-up of Marlene Dietrich as saloon songstress Lili Von Shtupp. Adding to the comedic excess is the infamous campfire scene involving a bunch of hungry cowboys, heaping servings of baked beans and, well, you get the idea.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Oh the camptown lady sing this song dooda dooda!
    so hilariously funny. bart (clevon little) plays one of the slaves and becomes the first black sherriff that offends the white town of rockridge and his first white friend jim (gene wilder) who is reffered to as the waco kid. No one would except the new sherriff and the bad guys would try to kill him buy sending mongo or lili von shtup. So funny that melbrooks should keep doing more and more funniest movies. another old movie of the late 70s but very good I give it 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An important work of art
    (4.5/5 stars) This film is so good because we all know people who are racist or who harbor prejudices against an ethnic or religious group. Brooks lays all of this bare and then confronts this bigotry directly by making a black man and his Jewish partner the heroes of the movie. True, the Gentiles don't fair very well in the movie because it seems every one of them winds up being portrayed as racist, mindless or both. As a Gentile, this does not bother me because I believe the point Brooks was trying to make is that during the period in which this film takes place, the 19th century, the white majority largely viewed the non-white minority as second class. Certainly there were enlightened people who earnestly believed all races and classes should share the same privileges, but this was after the Civil War and long before the era of Civil Rights. Blacks were free, but were very far from being accepted in business or as part of white society as a whole. It is within this setting that Brooks devises an astute commentary on the topic of race relations. When the Governor (Brooks) makes Bart (Cleavon Little) sheriff (as part of a self-serving plan, incidentally), no one takes it seriously because the town sheriff is a person the townsfolk respect and upon whom they rely (or at least hoped) for safety. How will these whites come to terms with having a sheriff they do not respect, and whom they view as being naturally inferior and therefore incapable of protecting them? This is not one of those condescending, guilt-ridden movies that white people make wherein the black man with a heart of gold is redeemed at the end only because a sympathetic white character shows him some pity. (See: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Green Mile, etc.)No, in this movie, the black characters are seen as being clever, intelligent and talented enough to redeem themselves based on their own terms. Yes, there are racial epithets and stereotypes that are offensive and politically incorrect; however, these are used to illustrate the ignorance and intolerance of the offender rather than as a valid way of inciting the offended. Much of the humor is sophomoric and scatological, so one's appreciation of the film will likely be in direct proportion to one's proclivity for such humor. Listen for Frankie Laine singing the title song and watch for a cameo by Count Basie. The finale is rather weak and I wish Brooks would have ended it before it spilled over the set, which is why I stop short of giving it five stars. The anniversary DVD is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Getting Started.
    I don't have HBO.In fact, I don't even have cable.However, I have friends who do and when some of them were talking about the latest season of the HBO show, ENTOURAGE, I had no idea what they were talking about or what the hype was about.Then this past summer I was staying at a hotel and was flipping through the channels and came across an episode of ENTOURAGE (Season 3) that had just started.Actually, I didn't even know it was ENTOURAGE until after the show ended.But, I had been intrigued by the opening scene and sat fascinated for over twenty minutes.The writing was superb and I found myself compelled by the characters on the screen and wanted to see what would happen to them next.I had become hooked and a fan just through that one episode.
    2-0 out of 5 stars At times laughable, overall uneventful
    Fairly well shot and sprinkled with comedic wit, this show is rather lacking in the areas of storyline and character development.Three friends riding the wave of partying and excitment formed by their up-and-coming actor friend destined to be the 'next big thing'.The premise was ok, but unfortunately nothing ever really seems to happen in these shows.The plot moves slowly, if at all, and when an opportunity arrives for the writers to create some real tension or excitment, they side-step it.It appears that the real premise for each episode is to dangle nice cars, attractive women, and countless cameos in front of the viewer so that he/she fills with desire for such a lucrative lifestyle.I'm all for that, but try to write a script in the process.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Emptiness + vacuum = totally boring
    I gave this show a try. I was fidgeting with boredom after the first 20 minutes of the pilot. I "browsed" through the 2nd episode and gave up. Detestable characters, average acting, showbiz "cool" moronity... On the whole, a major disappointment. HBO has made so many other enjoyable series. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun and Excitement
    THE INCREDIBLES is a first-class animated film about a superhero and his family who are forced to seek the anonymity of a government witness protection program to escape a rash of lawsuits orchestrated by their enemies. Mr. Incredible has to endure the boredom of a job as an insurance claims specialist while his wife and children cooperate by also concealing their extraordinary powers in front of others. This is hardest on the children as they play with youngsters at school and on the athletic field. Eventually, Mr. Incredible is lured out of retirement on a ruse by a former foe. By now Mr. Incredible is older and fatter but he still proves equal to the challenge. The rest of the movie is filled with excitement and comical moments as Mr. Incredible finds himself in a tight spot from which only his family can rescue him. The cast is headed by Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter. Ms. Hunter supplies the voice for Elastigirl who is also the wife of Mr. Incredible.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Fails to Meet the Standards
    I would like to start by saying I grew up with animated moves and computer animated movies. Toy Story and Shrek were among my favorite movies when I was young, but I strongly feel that The Incredibles fails to live up that expectation.
    2-0 out of 5 stars The Incredibles
    If you saw this, imagine it without the music. It'd lose a lot. We have a cartoon family of superheroes doing what superheroes do. Damn impressive cartoon technology, but so what? They're never going to be as convincing as human actors. So what do we do with this technology? Move it to the fringes where acting isn't so important, like talking animals, science fiction, fantasy, superhero stuff. TERMINATOR II was an awesome use of the technology, but what else is it good for? This movie is good if you're too exhausted to do anything constructive, like thinking, but I doubt any adult will sit through it twice. ... Read more

See Tim Burton's terrific movie of love between life & death

    Shy Victor's parents arrange a marriage for him, thinking that he will never marry on his own.His parents are newly rich, so they immediately want to pair him up with someone from old money.They arrange the marriage to Victoria, a young woman who's just as quiet and retiring as Victor.But somehow, in the space of a few minutes, true love ignites between the two.As soon as it does, however, the fates conspire to keep them apart.First Victor can't remember his vows.Then the priest sends him away, saying that Victor doesn't want to marry.Then, when Victor finally practices his vows (thinking he's by himself) and gets them right, he ends up married to a young dead woman who was murdered for her dowry years ago.

    Just like Tim Burton to create such a wonderful masterpiece for an animated movie! Beautiful music! Great plot! and such a great success this movie turned out to be! I saw this in theaters and I loved it! I still can't belive it didn't get the oscar for best animated movie. Wallace and Grommit got it. I am really dissapointed. I've asked alot of people whether this of Wallace and is better and I got alot of responses saying that this was better so it just doesn't make any sense at all why this great movie didn't win. But I still think it should have won and I still love this movie. It's one of Tim Burton's best movies ever. Just like the Nightmare Before Christmas, but even better. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Dreamers
    I thought the acting and the cinematography where great. This is defiantly a well-made charter driven movie made in Paris. It reflected what was happing there during the late sixties as the background to the story of an American student studing in Paris who meets up with two locals a brother and sister and they become more than just friends.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Sexy
    From a visual and sexual point of view, the result is so delight and hedonist's primer, but from a call to arms or discourse on the rights and wrongs of activists and pacifists, it comes across morally lite, as empty as the pilloried authoritarians who barely cover their lust for power with the thin threads of peace and democracy for all.The Dreamers is a bold film with fine performances and a few eye-popping moments. I'm glad Bertolucci made it and I'm gladder that Fox Searchlight had the guts to release it uncut.I enjoyed the film overall.This is, without a doubt, the best movie I have ever seen.
    1-0 out of 5 stars The Dreamers
    Despite the mixed reviews the critics and other viewers may have given this movie, this is really pretty sick stuff, with little or no redeeming social context.Objectively, sick just isn't erotic, no matter how hard one may try to rationalize to make it so.Those who think differently really ought to either:(a) focus a little more; (b) examine their true motives; or (c) get a life. ...

    This is a review of the 1997 DVD release- thus far, as of September 2006, the only release I know of.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Say 5 times Beetlejuice and hope that it appears again
    I really hopes that Beetlejuice would appear again. At least on DVD. Because this is a very poor edition with no extras at all. Just the plain old transfer with no remastered sound or nothing new. The only good extra features in this disc are the spanish and french tracks that doesn't mean that there no spanish and french subtitles also. As with any Tim Burton title, I wish a special edition would come up with all the backstage and in the making footage that make us understand the dificulties of doing a complex (and simple) movie like Beetlejuice.

    4-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars... actually 10 stars for the movie but 1 star for the DVD!
    GREAT MOVIE! Tim Burton at his best, so what's up with the really really crappy DVD!? I mean you can't get crappier than this!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Possible product packaging issue
    I purchased the boxed set in mid-August 2006 and unfortunately, due to a defective disk, returned it immediately.I say unfortunately because the set was immaculate otherwise.Amazon's replacement service kindly sent a replacement set the day I was sending the original back--gotta love that; thanks Amazon!HOWEVER, the replacement was not packaged completely.My replacement set did not include individual cardboard envelopes for the three plastic hard cases.(The holder which holds the three hard cases together was there; but each hard case is further protected by a cardboard envelope, which helps keep them from rubbing against each other in the holder.This is important; because each hard case has chrome-like lettering which could rub off over time without the added protection.This is apparently a QC issue wherever the sets are assembled--I do not think Amazon was to blame).So, regrettably, I returned this set as well.Just be aware you may receive a set which doesn't contain individual cardboard envelopes for each plastic hard case.If you can live with that, it's no big deal and you will love this set--I'm just picky!Star Trek rules!And thanks again, Amazon, for your superb customer service!

    1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF!!!
    How long is Paramount going to milk the Star Trek name?There is NO WAY I'm going to cough up $175 for a DVD set of three seasons of ANY show.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Huge price drop just in time
    They are going to be re-releasing the original series with added computer generated graphics and effects.When I found this out I went to Amazon to check used copies of the original series so I would have a collection of the origial series without the added CGI.The whole series used to cost upwards to $400 at some retailers, and I was able to pick it up just now brand new off Amazon for ~$175, which is still steep for a non-fan, but is a great deal if like me you want to have a collection of the original series, especially before they add the CGI. ...

    Editorial Review

    Universal Pictures made a great deal of money from its monster movies in the 1930s. In the early '40s, the burlesque team of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello kept the studio's coffers full. When the two franchises were combined in 1948, the result was another windfall--despite the apparent oil-and-water mix of subject matter. Read more

    If you like Abbott & Costello, you'll love this!If you want a good copy of this, better to buy the compilations UNIVERSAL now has available, Bes tof A&C Vols. 1, 2, 3, an 4.Each set includes 8 classic A&C films, and include a lot of extras, like artwork, and info on each film in the DVD extras.Me and my kids watch all of the films over and over again, and A&C Meets Frankenstein every Halloween season.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Yooooooooo Aboooooooooooooot!
    This is a great collecters item as well as just a family film. Once again Abott and costello get teamed up with some of the movies biggest monster legends. Such as Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and Count Dracula. Just a little bit overboard... Well, Its only a movie.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Universal...Can you not clean this classic print up a little, please !!??
    Fans deserve it.I must put in a plug for one of the best (and seldom mentioned) components of this classic comedy:the music score by FRANK SKINNER and the terrific orchestrations by DAVID TAMKIN.Also my sincere condolences to the family of ROBERT LEES who co-wrote the screenplay and died tragically in 2004. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute masterpiece
    This film is better than anything else I've reviewed this week, or in a very long time. But you want details, so here we go.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Film
    Life is Beautiful is a film by Roberto Benigni, which really showcases his talent before he made an embarassing stab at playing Pinocchio. "Life is Beautiful" is probably my favorite Foreign film (I've only seen probably 5 though); It's funny, heartfelt, has wonderful performances, and is all around a joy to watch. It also happens to be a layered film, that goes in one direction before veering off into another but never losing it's charm. Benigni plays Guido, a waiter with a humorous streak. After Guido contantly stumbles into Dora (Nicoletta Braschi), he falls in love with her and the movie (with no warning) flashes forward a number of years. This first half of the film (which is a little over 50 minutes) is pretty much a romantic-comedy. The second half is quite different. In the second half, Guido and Dora (who now have a young son named Joshua) live in Italy which is overrun with Germans. Subsequently, Guido and Joshua are taken into a concentration camp; Dora also goes to the camp, but under different circumstances which are a bit unbelievable but still a nice part of the story. Anyway, Guido employs his quick-wit to keep his son from the horrors of the camp; Guido tells Josh that it's actually an elaborate game and that he must avoid being seen. If, at the end, he does everything he's told and racks up the most "points" he will get a tank. Benigni (who is also the co-writer and director) does something that's never been done. He takes a horrifying setting (a concentration camp) and turns it into a comedy, without exploting anything and without losing heart.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Be happy that weare HERE.
    Despite the holocaust that can happen to anybody,this movie shows deeply that as a child,everything you see around you is in it's nature.The heart of a child can feel the joy of living,while we (grown-up children) often look for the shade or nuance of everything....we judge,compare,condemn and critic.We are duped by all the happenings around.

    All in all this movie was all right.Michael Bay movies can be a little one dimensional and this movie clearly is.One must ignore glaring holes in the plot as well as plot developments that are a little bit of a stretch.I like the premise of the movie's clandestine cloning which helps me like the movie.It was also helpful to have Ewan Mcgregor and Scarlett Johansson as the lead actors.They were able to at least bring a little life to the picture.Like they say, this is a rental to watch on a rainy day with nothing else to do.

    great action pack movie not what i expected, it has some similar patterns to other movies i've seen but i think they did a good job

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, decent action and storyline.
    Well, I thought this movie was going to be a rip off of various other sci-fi thrillers about the future, and it wasn't totally. Taking place in the not to distant future, Ewan Mcgregor and Scarlett Johannsen are two people living in a "colony" after the earth had a big contamination that just about killed everything.Their goal in life, to win the colonies lottery and go to the Island, the only part of earth that supposidly was left to repopulate.Well, after making friends with a colony worker (steve bushemi, Ewan mcgregor begins to question exactly what is outside the colony.He discovers the whole thing is a scam, and he take Scarlett and escapes, and the chaise is on.I won't fill in any more details, but it's worth a rental at least, but consider bying it. It got decent action and a fair story. ... Read more

    This is NOT the restored print of Dracula 1931 that Universal previously released on DVD a few years earlier.If you have that DVD keep it as the quality on this box set is awful.I can only think that whoever was in charge of compiling this didn't bother to look or didn't know that Universal had a fully restored copy of this film.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Charlie delivers in full HD glory
    This movie looks simply amazing! The color, texture and detail provided by HD-DVD are superb, this is a showcase title for the format. First a word about my setup, which is nice but far from optimal. The HD-DVD player is connected via HDMI to a Sanyo PL-Z4 projector, with an approximately 140" picture thrown onto a light beige wall. The room has little in the way of light control so we watch movies in the evening when there is less ambient light leaking through opaque cloth shades. Hardly the ideal environment to view a movie for most home theater afficionado's but my family and I thoroughly enjoy watching titles no less for it.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Stick with Willy Wonka
    I could barely get through the...um...er...reimagination...of the childern's classic - while the set design and special FX are state of the art, as usual for a Tim Burton film, the actual movie is hard to watch. Why? Depp's "performance" is chock full of ticks and mannerisms, off-putting, flat, self-absorbed, and finally, one-note. Rather than the quirky fun of the original 1972 Gene Wilder version, Burton's film is more horror than fantasy, often casually cruel and sadistic to the point of being far from family fare.While deliberate on Burton's part, that doesn't make the final product any more watchable. It's one grim, dismal, downward spiral slog. Not much holidday fun, huh? As with most of Burton's other big, expensive failures, he knows how to CREATE a convincing world, but has no clue how to POPULATE it with characters and situations we identify with and/or could care less about.The final result is a film that's like a fragile, hermetically sealed curio on the shelf - nice to look at from afar, but hard to get attached to, much less involved with. What a waste of millions of studio $$$.

    5-0 out of 5 stars yeah...
    I saw Charlie & The Chocolate Factory last night for the first time (I'm behind the times, yes) and though I usually don't care very much in giving my opinion, the journey Tim Burton and his team made me cross deserves an homage. Especially with all that criticism rising around the film before it has been released.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best movie of Tim Burton's career
    Tim Burton is a brilliant visual director but with Edward Scissorhands he managed to combine these talents with pure, classic storytelling - Scissorhands is his best overall film, abandoning the slight characterizations and special effects-driven spectacle of the (albeit hugely enjoyable) Batman and serving up a convincingly detailed left-of-center fairytale romance.
    5-0 out of 5 stars To Love A Fictional Character
    This movie makes it easy to fall in love with the main character, Edward, played marvelously by Johnny Depp, who is one of my favorite actors.Winona Rider is great too, and combined with Tim Burton's brilliance makes one heck of a movie.The music is by Danny Elfman, and it fits wonderfully and highlights the many poignant and emotional moments in the film.Vincent Price is in this movie too, and we get to enjoy some of his last work before he, in real life, passes away.He plays the inventor of Edward, whos life is cut short and is unable to finish his creation.Parts of this movie bring a tear to my eye.Have your Kleenex handy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Poignant Fairy Tale
    Tim Burton brings to life a rare combination of elements that create story that brings tears to my eyes every time I watch it. On the surface the story is the tale of Edward Scissorhands, created by inventor Vincent Price in one of his greatest roles. "Edward Scissorhands" could have been another story completely, a horror story, or science fiction, or a comedy. Instead, Tim Burton creates a beautiful fairy tale set in an idealized suburbia of the 50s.

    Editorial Review

    Groundbreaking on several counts, not the least of which was aninnovative use of animation and stereophonic sound, this ambitiousDisney feature has lost nothing to time since its release in 1940.Classical music was interpreted by Disney animators, resulting insurreal fantasy and playful escapism. Leopold Stokowski and thePhiladelphia Orchestra provided the music for eight segments by thecomposers Tchaikovsky, Moussorgsky, Stravinsky, Beethoven, Ponchielli,Bach, Dukas, and Schubert. Not all the sequences were created equally,but a few are simply glorious, such as "Night on Bald Mountain," "TheSorcerer's Apprentice," and "The Nutcracker Suite." The animationranges from subtly delicate to fiercely bold. The screen bursts withcolor and action as creatures transmute and convention is thrust aside.The painstaking detail and saturated hues are unique to this film,unmatched even by more advanced technology.

    IN A NUTSHELL: LET FANTASIA SPEAK FOR ITSELF & IT SPEAKS MAGICALLY
    5-0 out of 5 stars Not original but still worth having
    Yes it is true that Fantasia has been edited, but that is because Disney had to edit something that by today's standards would be socially unacceptable. for the time the movie was made (1942) it would be a different situation. I agree with their decision to edit those parts out, although you can find the scenes on the internet, and they are interesting to watch, but I can agree that they were edited for good reason. and it is true, just because a movie is edited doesn't mean that those parts weren't there, but if you want to own Fantasia on DVD, then this is worth buying. the only difference from the VHS version to note is, the narration has been re-recorded, and though it is not the original narration, it is still good I only noted 1 or 2 differences in the narration from the original. this is the best (socially acceptable) copy of Fantasia you will ever find, those of you who are looking for the original version (ie 1942) you are out of luck, every re-release of this movie since the 1970's has been edited, and unless you want celluloid film you'll just have to get this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The all-time classic!
    Fantasia is the all-time classic animated movie. Where to begin with this one? The animation is incredible, with stunning artwork, effects, and a huge palet of colors. The storytelling is top-notch, with excellent pacing and story development. Using classical music as a storytelling tool is A LOT harder than you may think, and the Disney animators pulled it off brilliantly. Each segment of Fantasia is its own self-contained movie, and each one is a winner. Even the weakest segment (the first one) is still an outstanding example of innovation (jawdropping for the 1940's). Other than the first segment, all stand up perfectly to repeated viewings. Fantasia is an AMAZING movie, which will entertain adults as much as children (a rarity). It is fitting in an ironic way, then, that Fantasia was also Disney's biggest flop when it was released in 1940. Oftentimes truly outstanding works take many years to be be recognized as the masterpieces they are (Wizard Of Oz, Its A Wonderful Life).

    No one could argue that PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE doesn't have a certain whimsical charm--and a few belly laughs.But as big a fan as I used to be of the TV show (and as big a fan of Tim Burton as I have become over the years), I found myself growing impatient watching close to two hours of Pee-wee and friends.That's just too much whimsy.I wouldn't say it was a stinker.Of course, even if I did, no doubt the fans would just retort, "I know you are, but what am I?"

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Let Your Kids Watch This!!
    To this day, I still remember watching The Last Unicorn. Why? I was only about 5 years old and it haunts me to this day. PLEASE. If you love your kids, don't let them watch this unless they're at least 10 years old and unimpressionable. I had nightmares from this show for months. If you're older, this is a great show. It's refreshinng and different. Now that I'm older, I love it, but I will NOT show it to my children. Really, it should be rated PG10 or something. Way too scary for little kids in the G category.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy sound, lousy video. Stay away!
    Don't buy this DVD! This DVD is playing in my living room right now, and I took the opportunity to get away and write this review. We popped this into the player and settled in for our Friday family movie & pizza night on the couch. I've never seen this movie, and I don't think I ever want to watch it all the way through. The picture and sound quality are both so lousy that I can't stand to watch for more than 5 minutes. I bought this as a surprise for my wife, who loved this as a kid. And as much as she loves it, she's even noticed how warbly the sound is and isn't enjoying it very much. Also, being full screen, not wide screen, much of the picture is cut out. There's some scene where two characters are talking to each other from opposite sides of the TV screen, and you can hardly see them... you mostly just see a castle wall.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this movie.
    I REALLY want to watch this movie amain. I would give anything. But in my town it is not at the video-stores or at any stores I have been to. I liked the unicorn the best. The red bull was scary and so was the harpy. The prince was handsome. It was so touching and the animation and the music was beautiful. I haven't seen it since I was 8 and I would LOVE to see it again. I would strongly recommend buying this movie. It is one you will want to see over and over again. P.S. I think this movie should get an award. ... Read more

    What's Up, Doc? is a 1972 throwback to the screwball comedies of the 30s. The result of an abandoned black comedy set to star Elliott Gould, Babs ended up in the feature with a severely altered script and Peter Bogdanovich at the helm.
