    Editorial Review

    From the moment that Prince Eric's ship emerged from the fog in the opening credits it was apparent that Disney had somehow, suddenly recaptured that "magic" that had been dormant for thirty years. In the tale of a headstrong young mermaid who yearns to "spend a day, warm on the sand," Ariel trades her voice to Ursula, the Sea Witch (classically voiced by Pat Carroll), for a pair of legs. Ariel can only succeed if she receives true love's kiss in a few day's time and she needs all the help she can from a singing crab named Sebastian, a loudmouth seagull, and a flounder. The lyrics and music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken are top form: witty and relevant, and they advance the story (go on, hum a few bars of "Under the Sea"). Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good film...GREAT 2nd DISC FEATURES!!
    First... let's just say that somebody needs to tell Ashley Tisdale to lose the boots. They're only gonna be even more embarrasing in 20 years than they are today. Where are Joan and Melissa when we need them!? "Kiss the Girl"? ... pass.
    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Disney's Finest Achievements!
    In a wonderful kingdom under the sea lives the beautiful mermaid princess, Ariel, seventh and youngest daughter of King Triton, ruler of Atlantica. Ariel's feisty spirit and gorgeous red hair make her a bit of a favorite among Triton's daughters, and her passion for learning human ways and collecting of their artifacts causes much stress to her family and friends. After spying a handsome, young, human prince aboard a ship one evening and saving his life, Ariel is instantly love-struck, and this is completely unacceptable to her overbearing, human-hating father. In a desperate and rebellious action, Ariel turns to a seductive sea witch for help, who takes possession of Ariel's beautiful voice in exchange for a magical spell. The spell changes Ariel's fish-like tail into a lovely pair of human legs, but there is a condition attached. If Ariel can't get the young prince to fall in love with her in three days and seal it with a kiss, the spell will be broken and Ariel will join the witch Ursula's collection of hideously transformed victims. Luckily, the prince is in love with her already, though he doesn't know it. Prince Eric is obsessed with finding the young lady who saved him from drowning that night and whom he caught a glimpse of as she sang to him just before disappearing. When he takes in the now human Ariel after she appears seemingly washed up from a shipwreck, her inability to speak makes him sure she is not the one. Voiceless and only left with her beauty and exuberant charm, Ariel and her animal friends must try their best to make the prince see that she is the lost love he has been searching for, but the Sea Witch will do all she can to stop them before time runs out! If Ursula holds power over Princess Ariel, the king himself will have to bow down before her!
    5-0 out of 5 stars DEEP SEA IN FUN. MAKE A SPLASH WITH THIS MERMAID!
    Finally, the long-anticipated eighth addition to Disney's Platinum Collection is here making quite the splash---the bonus tracks in this disc-disc edition include a brand-new making-of feautrette, never-before-deleted scenes, a backstage peek into the world of Imagineering, music videos, special effect demos,and song demos. We often wondered how Ursula ended up a sea witch (some others calling the multi-tentacled terror an "octopus"); one of our favorite deleted scenes reveals Ursula's real identity . . . unless you've been basking in a seaweed wrap all these years, Ursula is voiced by the Cape's own Pat Carroll. Getting it done has never sounded so true. And terrifying.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Movie is great, but don't bother with the Collector's Edition!
    As a DVD collector, I was more than willing to fork over the extra ten dollars to pick up the X-Men: The Last Stand Collector's Edition. Unforntunately, I have never been more disappointed.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Wrap Up
    I enjoyed this movie for what it was.I also enjoyed the first two movies as well.They seemed to depend a lot more on characterization and the human/mutant discriminations.This one seems to go more for the slam bam action more than story.The mutant battle at the end of the movie is great.This movie kills off several major characters, makes some major changes to others, as well as introducing us to new major characters Beast, Angel and Juggernaut.To quickly sum it up, Jena Grey returns from the dead as Phoenix, a not so nice but very powerful mutant.Professor X and Magneto are at odds as to what to do with her.Meanwhile a mutant boy who can take away the mutant ability is used to create a cure for mutants.Some see this as a savior, others look at it like genocide.Thats when the real battles start.Enjoyable action film with great special effects.Though this wraps up the overall X-Men trilogy nicely, there was a slight tease at the end of more possibilities.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb, it doesn't get any better than this!
    I loved this movie and cannot understand why anyone who is truly a sci-fi fan could not love this movie.It was action packed with great special effects and a very well thought out plot.This combination is almost impossible to find in movies today.Nothing, since the Terminator II can compare to this movie.Hats off to everyone involved in this fantastic production.For those of you who can not apppreciate a gem sci-fi such as this, stick to something you know. ...

    Editorial Review

    What was in the Hatch? The cliffhanger from season one of Lost was answered in its opening sequences, only to launch into more questions as the season progressed. That's right: Just when you say "Ohhhhh," there comes another "What?" Thankfully, the show's producers sprinkle answers like tasty morsels throughout the season, ending with a whopper: What caused Oceanic Air Flight 815 to crash in the first place? As the show digs into more revelations about its inhabitant's pasts, it also devotes a good chunk to new characters (Hey, it's an island; you never know who you're going to run into.) First, there are the "Tailies," passengers from the back end of the plane who crashed on the other side of the island. Among them are the wise, God-fearing ex-drug lord Mr. Eko (standout Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje); devoted husband Bernard (Sam Anderson); psychiatrist Libby (Cynthia Watros, whose character has more than one hidden link to the other islanders); and ex-cop Ana Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez), by far the most infuriating character on the show, despite how much the writers tried to incur sympathy with her flashback. Then there are the Others, first introduced when they kidnapped Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) at the end of season one. Brutal and calculating, their agenda only became more complex when one of them (played creepily by Michael Emerson) was held hostage in the hatch and, quite handily, plays mind games on everyone's already frayed nerves. The original cast continues to battle their own skeletons, most notably Locke (Terry O'Quinn), Sun (Yunjin Kim) and Michael (Harold Perrineau), whose obsession with finding Walt takes a dangerous turn. The love triangle between Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly) and Sawyer (Josh Holloway), which had stalled with Sawyer's departure, heats up again in the second half. Despite the bloating cast size (knocked down by a few by season's end) Lost still does what it does best: explores the psyche of people, about whom "my life is an open book" never applies, and cracks into the social dynamics of strangers thrust into Lord of the Flies-esque situations. Is it all a science experiment? A dream? A supernatural pocket in the universe? Likely, any theory will wind up on shaky ground by the season's conclusion. But hey, that's the fun of it. This show was made for DVD, and you can pause and slow-frame to your heart's content. Just try and keep that head-spinning to a minimum. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not Quite as Good as Season 1 But It's Still LOST!
    I think that the reason people don't like Season 2 as much as Season 1 is because you get so attached to the characters. It was quite sad when Boone bit the dust, but he had to and you'll find out.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
    OK. I do not love Lost but in some ways season two was slightly stronger than season one. IN season one you had a fantastic pilot and then almost no real storyline. This may also be slightly the case in season 2 at times but at least the quality of the dialogies and acting makes the interaction between the characters credible (or more credible at least). While some of the mroe intriguing things in Season 1 are not exploited at all (the monsters) there is much more emphasis on the presence of the Others, even if still very little is being explained. One thing that is somewhat tiring is that whenever one point has been clarified, there comes the next unexpected cliffhanger situation which is not allways necessary. In some ways you need to watch the whole thing in one go in order to make it satisfying since the single episodes themselves do not allways make for coherent viewing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A different focus than Season 1, but a good difference
    There are no spoilers in this review.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing
    I admit to being a little troubled by the close of this season.(I won't say why so as not to give anything away.)However, now that season three has begun, I understand why they did what they did.The second half of season two is as good as the first half was.It is full of intrigue and rich in character development.The show is honestly an exercise in character development.The sci-fi setting is not the focus; the struggle, both internal and external, of the characters is.I think this is the selling point of the show and what makes it so amazingly great.See it!Love it!Buy it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An incredible show to get into
    Battlestar Galactica had a full count of episodes in season 2 but decided to give fans and themselves a break halfway for a couple months. Inexplicably, the season is not in one big set but rather split in half at full price. It's one of those kind of unforgivable things that doesn't derail the season simply because the episodes are so great. While things in the middle section somewhat sag, they're bookended but awesome episodes that should appeal not only to sci-fi fans but drama fans in general.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Show on TV just gets better and better
    People who have an opinion about BATTLESTAR GALACTICA tend to fall into three camps.First, there are those who dismiss it because it is Sci-fi and as a result have no interest in it.After all, those Trekkie types have no real aesthetic judgment and will like just about anything as long as it has spaceships, lasers, robots, and aliens (nevermind that BSG has neither lasers nor aliens).Second, there is the extremely small but rather fanatical group of fans of the original show (widely referred to as TOS) who are adamant that the new show (or GINO as they love to refer to it--"Galactica in name only") simply must be a horror because, well, STARBUCK is a guy in the new series!There is a third and rapidly growing group:those who consider BATTLESTAR GALACTICA either the best show on TV or at the very least among the best.Within the latter group there is a not insignificent group who wonder whether it might not be the best show in the history of television.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Beating a dead horse
    I tried it and I didn't like it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars As good as ever, if not better!!!!
    I purchased this season with trepidation as I was dubious about the changes in the casting as i had loved the previous 8 seasons with Richard Dean Anderson and the rest. The humour was excellent and each episode was most enjoyable leaving me always wanting more. Well, imagine my surprise when i watched the first few episodes to find that the changes had not detracted from the show at all but made it every bit as good as before. The writers etc have not tried to replace the O'Niell character but have introduced a new dynamic with some excellent humour. The episodes have been very good and while I still have 4 episodes to watch, I am hoping that the rumours about the show being cancelled after season 10 are not true. I will watch this show for as long as it is available. (I have to watch on DVD as i do not get the show on TV here). I love the new humour from all the cast and the transition from the Gou'Ald to the Ori has been interestingly handled. It is also great to see that the team do not always succeed, but i hope that they do eventually overcome the ORI.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in the Box set Great series
    I am both disappointed in Amazon and MGM , first the so called BOX set was released 3 weeksearlierat Sam's clubfor $27.00 but it was the thin pack so I did not buy it because I own the other (8 seasons) in the (BOX) set Amazon was to release it in a few weeks so I waited and pre bought what I thought was the BOX set , not the thin set well when the package came in I was disappointedI went to Sam's I was going to buy the thin pack and return the Amazon order. Well Sam's Club sold out of the season 9 right away.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Old Time Matinee
    This is probably what someone would describe as the type of matinee you would see back in the day.A nice way to cool down on a hot summer day.While this movie is a little mindless, it is fun.When I went to see this, people applauded after the movie.People clearly love this movie.While I thought it was good, I don't know if it deserved applause but I had to admit that I liked it.This movie I thought was a big improvement over the first one and the effects were nothing short of spectacular.Truly unbelievable.The plot was compelling enough to keep me in my seat but I did feel the flow was a little bit stilted toward the end.Maybe the movie-making folks had some issues with the script and how best to make it flow (like I would now, right?).Of course this uneven flow could have been because of editing.I felt like the last hour of the film was a off center like they lost their pace a little bit.Looking forward to the third installment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Captain Jack Sparrow
    I loved this movie! Captain Jack (Depp) is the perfect pirate for this movie, he is the kind of character you cant help but love. I cant wait for the 3rd movie to come out and see what happens between Jack and Elizabeth!!!! i loved the 1st movie, and i almost love the 2nd movie even more! The action and special effects make up for the slightly confusing story line, the ending to this movie leaves a HUGE opening for the 3rd movie. If you didn't see this movie in theaters it is definetly worth wathing when it comes out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yo Ho Ho! The Pirate's Movie for Me!
    Pirates of the Carribean 2 is funny, creepy, scary, tense, adventurous, slimy, gross and magical. Johnny Depp is once again superb as the mincing pirate captain, and Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom are worthy back ups to Depp. As the movie starts, Knightly is left waiting for Bloom at the altar, only to find that they both have warrants out for their arrest for aiding in the escape of Captain Jack Sparrow. Their lives will be spared, however, if they can find a key and a hidden chest--- and the adventure is off!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Smallville At Its Best
    First and Second season i watched and was disappointed by the repetitious plot and episodes. Kyrptonite rock involved in every episode? So I slowly grew out of the show, always keeping a vigilant watch for something exciting (Flash apperance!). After hearing about Season 5, I knew I had to own it. Aquaman, Brainiac, Cyborg, and Zod! It's a must have season. This season finally focuses on the origins of Superman/Kal-El/Clark. You can see the emergings on a young Superman in this season. He fights off serial killers, the supernatural, and the occational intergalatic attack. This can only get better going into next season. If you were like me, not truly into the show because of the lame story archs of past seasons, this one will recapture your original interest in the show: Seeing Superman in Action.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Why no English Captions
    I love Smallville, I think Allison Mack is the most gorgeous woman around, my only complaint is that this Smallville set, and many other recent sets have decided to not include English subtitles or caption. As someone who is slightly hard of hearing, I like being able to see what people are saying, but can't with this set (or the Supernatural Season One set), what gives!?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally some action!
    I know for most of us comic book geeks SMALLVILLE for the first four seasons was whether hit and miss (and for me was more on the "miss" side).This left me not really wanting to continue my viewing of the show into the 5th seasonl.Of course my friends all told me I was nits and that I needed to start watching as characters like aquaman and cyborg had begun to appear on the show in cameo roles.I still with held from watching until I saw the DVD available.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great show, but another set that I won't buy...
    I WOULD have purchased all of the seasons on DVD, except for the fact that they just don't include any extras.I've SEEN all the episodes, so there is no reason to watch them again.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Series
    What can I say, in my personal opinion the series keeps getting better and baetter. The sixth season intorduces Chris, Piper's second son come back from the future to prevent Wyatt from being corrupted. I really like the character who tried to turn Wyatt evil. I am niot going to give that away just in case someone hasn't seen it. Anyways back to the character of Chris. I like the conflict he brings to the plot. I personally didn't like how the character acted in the beginning. By the end of the season, he was okay.Wyatt uis still my favorite of Leo's and Piper's sons. I also liked Valhey of the Dolls. It is a personal preference because I love norse mythology. I also loved Witchstock. The young Leo looked HOT! Again my personal opinion.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Funny, but missing something......
    I thought the first Ice Age was great.This one is good, not great.They really used scrat better this time than before, but the rest of the characters were.....not undeveloped, but it just didn't have as many hilarious situations.Sid is as hilarious as ever, but manny and diego doen't do as much.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Better The Second Time Around
    This was HILLARIOUS!!! This was far better than the first movie. John Leguizamo was brilliant as usual, the perfect voice for Sid. And it was great having the voice of Queen Latifah as Ray Ramano's love interest. This movie was a comedy-lovers delight. And of course the squirrel, Scrat, was genius from day one. Every scene he's in is like watching a great silent movie. That actually requires a lot of skill on behalf of the storytellers and animators to create scenes without dialogue that are equally as entertaining and engaging as those with dialogue. The latter is one reason why the first "Ice Age" film distinguished itself. So the team at Blue Sky Studios should be congratulated. This is a sharp movie. No sophomore slump. I have the first one on DVD and I can't wait to get this incredible sequel. Everything just seems more developed and elaborated upon this time around. Computer-animated films were still in their infancy when the first film got released. But the technological progress that has been made since then is obvious and it's been put to good use throughout the movie. I really enjoyed "Ice Age 2." So if you were a fan of the first one, then don't forget to get the sequel when it hits stores this November.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Ice Age: The Meltdown (2.5 stars)
    Ice Age: The Meltdown is exactly what it sounds like: the Ice Age is thawing out, a great flood is imminent and the mismatched trio of Manny, Sid and Diego find themselves on another journey together. There is no inner group conflict this time around but rather the conflicts are personal to each character: Manny copes with his fear that he may be the last mammoth, Diego reveals that he has a petrifying fear of water, and Sid feels unappreciated by his peers. When Manny runs into Ellie, the only other mammoth left, who just happens to think she's a possum, he brings her along for the ride with her two possum brothers, Crash and Eddie, as well. The ensuing voyage to get to the end of the valley to escape the flood is completely uninteresting and bland, as are all the jokes and problems they face on the way. The witty dialogue that was present in the first film is sorely lacking here with the only laughs coming from the zany physical antics of Scrat, the prehistoric squirrel, and his never ending quest to get his acorn (it says something about the quality of a movie when the funniest parts come from a comedy formula originating in the ice age itself). Ice Age 2 is more of a letdown than anything, a boring and cliched story of a group of oddballs overcoming their fears and differences to become better "people" in the end. Though a series of shorts featuring Scrat would have been far more consistent and entertaining, Ice Age: The Meltdown's box office intake would indicate that this latest installment probably isn't the last of the franchise and that as long as the next one still has Scrat included, it will be just as big of a success. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Trilogy Ever!!!
    X-Men, X-Men United and X-Men "The Last Stand" are simply spectacular! The cast,the characters, the special effects, the story, the action scenes,and everyhting else seems to work to make these movies the best movie trilogy ever!!!.I have seen lots of movies in my life, but nothing compares and comes close to X-Men.
    5-0 out of 5 stars World War X
    In X1 there was the attempt by Magneto (played superbly by Ian McKellan) to convert humans to mutants. In X2 it was a plot by a corrupt Fed to kill all the mutants using Xavier (Patrick Stewart). In X3 a "cure" is found that makes all mutants human.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great adaptation of classic heroes.
    While it'd be impossible for any films to do justice to Marvel's legendary team of super-powered mutants, I really feel that these films are almost as good an adaptation as we could have hoped for.The casting was strong, the action was solid, most of the characters were portrayed memorably, and the stories largely stayed true to the spirit of the X-men. The first film felt a little rushed due to the sheer number of characters introduced, but all things considered it was a very enjoyable film for both the uninitiated and old-school X-fans. Hugh Jackman was spot-on as Wolverine, the most iconic X-man and arguably the hardest to cast and Famke Jansen was a fantastic Jean Grey for at least the first two films.Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellan (Magneto), and Rebecca Romjin-Stamos (Mystique) also delivered outstanding performances playing their respective comic icons.The story was a nice update of the comics and followed Rogue's induction into Professor X's school for mutants and Magneto's first big terrorist attack on mankind. All-in-all, a satisfying start to the series.The second film really kicked the series into gear and introduced more of our favorite X-men, including Nightcrawler (whose opening sequence was the highlight of the film), Pyro, and Iceman. The story involves Wolverine's past and the government's attempts to control the ever-growing mutant population.The result was one of the greatest comic book films ever made that firmly cemented the developing series as one to watch.For some ridiculous reason, at this point the powers that be decided that the third film would be the last.This was a bad choice that made no kind of sense, upset the films' fans, and severly hurt the quality of the third film.Ah, the third film; a mixed bag to say the least.The plot deals with two classic storylines involving a cure for mutants and the legendary Dark Phoenix.My personal list of complaints is a long one, but I'll just hit a few in this review."X-men: The Last Stand" tries to cram two movies' worth of material into one film that is too short to begin with.The introduction of the Phoenix was obviously forced and no care was taken in this storyline which is one of the all-time classics in comic history, and the result is several pointless character deaths and gaps in logic, like why an all-powerful entity is content to hang out at an aging terrorist's side and just look menacing for most of the story.The series' former darling, Rogue, is reduced to a brooding plot-nuisance, has no real influence on the story, plus she never gains the fantastic powers she obtained in the comics that made her such a powerhouse of a character and a personal favorite of mine.On the other hand, more classic characters are given parts such as fan-favorite Kitty Pride and Collossus (both of which had cameos in X2), Angel, Multiple Man, Beast (played nicely by Kelsey Grammer), and the almighty Juggernaut (whose battle with Kitty was as awesome as it was unexpected).But as many characters as there were that made it into the three films, there were so many great ones that were reduced to either tiny, unnamed cameos in the series, or forgotten altogether. No Gambit, Emma Frost, Sinister, Apocalypse, Scarlet Witch, or Havok to name just a few.Furthermore, the final film's resolution in extremely unsatisfying and leaves little doubt that this franchise as we know it is dead, though they do leave us a glimmer of hope.There are talks of Wolverine and Magneto spin-offs and possibly a New Mutants project; promising ideas, but hardly a substitute for the ensemble we know and love.Still, in the end, I really did enjoy X3 as a film as it did have several great stand-up-and-cheer moments; it just upset me as a fan of the comics and as a fan of the the movies because there wss so much more that could have and should have been done with this series.In the end, whether you're a fan of the comics, the cartoons, or just a fan of sci-fi or fun movies in general, you really shouldn't miss out on these three movies.The series is full of memorable characters, fantastic battles, sly humor, references for hard-core fans, and, of course, the classic X-men social commentaries about discrimination and the importance of both individuality and cohesiveness.There doesn't appear to be much in the way of special features from the first two films on this edition; but for about $10 a flick, I'll let it slide since it is still a hell of a bargain.Highly recommended set. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Movie is great, but don't bother with the Collector's Edition!
    As a DVD collector, I was more than willing to fork over the extra ten dollars to pick up the X-Men: The Last Stand Collector's Edition. Unforntunately, I have never been more disappointed.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Wrap Up
    I enjoyed this movie for what it was.I also enjoyed the first two movies as well.They seemed to depend a lot more on characterization and the human/mutant discriminations.This one seems to go more for the slam bam action more than story.The mutant battle at the end of the movie is great.This movie kills off several major characters, makes some major changes to others, as well as introducing us to new major characters Beast, Angel and Juggernaut.To quickly sum it up, Jena Grey returns from the dead as Phoenix, a not so nice but very powerful mutant.Professor X and Magneto are at odds as to what to do with her.Meanwhile a mutant boy who can take away the mutant ability is used to create a cure for mutants.Some see this as a savior, others look at it like genocide.Thats when the real battles start.Enjoyable action film with great special effects.Though this wraps up the overall X-Men trilogy nicely, there was a slight tease at the end of more possibilities.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb, it doesn't get any better than this!
    I loved this movie and cannot understand why anyone who is truly a sci-fi fan could not love this movie.It was action packed with great special effects and a very well thought out plot.This combination is almost impossible to find in movies today.Nothing, since the Terminator II can compare to this movie.Hats off to everyone involved in this fantastic production.For those of you who can not apppreciate a gem sci-fi such as this, stick to something you know. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Magical from beginning to end
    To begin with, I am 26, an ex-dancer, and a mother of 3 princesses, ages 4, 3, and 1.I think this movie is just fantastic.The music and dancing is a beautiful experience and I am in awe of how great of a job they did with the small details of the dance.For example, you can see the pointe shoe bending in the correct areas of the dancers feet as they move.The scenery in and around the castle is gorgeous and eye-popping and I catch myself humming the songs while I'm even at work.I hope in the future there will be actual live touring shows of this movie.The makers of Barbie should seriously consider this as I feel it would become very popular.I give this movie 2 thumbs up!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good enough for even a big kid!
    This is my favorite of all the Barbie movies to date, by far! And that is coming from a 16 year old (yes, I really am 16). I watched this movie because my little sister got it for her birthday, and I absolutely love it. For the first time, Barbie has a whole cast of lovable characters, not just one or two good characters and a villain. The only thing I didn't like was the monkey's bad sense of humor. Other than that, this movie is great.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cute Movie!
    This is a very charming movie- Loads of Dancing in it too! It would really spark an interest in Balley for little ones! This is alittle bit like the 12 girls who has an evil stepmother, and turned in to swans. But it's really cool too! I love the golden pavillon and the gold boat! it's SO pretty! The music and the graphics are excellent, and the story base line is very empressive also! But personally, I like the Fairytopia line better then the Barbie Fantasy ones. This one was awesome though! Hope this Helpes!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding
    I am not sure how they are going to keep the momentum of this wonderful show going.The characters are stronger and the plot even better than season one.I found myself unable to stop thinking about the masterfully done plot of this series for days.Not since Babylon 5, has there been this kind of quality in TV.I am amazed.Wonderful!The best show on TV period!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Starting with the cliffhangers of the first season
    As if there weren't enough cliffhangers at the end of the first season, another one is thrown in the mix to complicate matters.We start with Adama being in critical condition, a team is stranded on Kobol, and Starbuck is back on Caprica with Helo and another Sharon while looking for an arrow.Then a jump ends with the rest of the fleet, including the doctor, being sent somewhere other than where Galactica ends up.It takes several episodes to wind all of these things up which technically make it the slowest part of the season in terms of time passing in the series.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment for fans of the show
    I have waited patiently until the release of the second half of Season 2 to buy this "2.0" set, comprising of the first 10 episodes of the show's second season, hoping in vain for a better whole season package or a cheaper bundle deal. Alas, we didn't get either of those, and I would wait no longer.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Old Time Matinee
    This is probably what someone would describe as the type of matinee you would see back in the day.A nice way to cool down on a hot summer day.While this movie is a little mindless, it is fun.When I went to see this, people applauded after the movie.People clearly love this movie.While I thought it was good, I don't know if it deserved applause but I had to admit that I liked it.This movie I thought was a big improvement over the first one and the effects were nothing short of spectacular.Truly unbelievable.The plot was compelling enough to keep me in my seat but I did feel the flow was a little bit stilted toward the end.Maybe the movie-making folks had some issues with the script and how best to make it flow (like I would now, right?).Of course this uneven flow could have been because of editing.I felt like the last hour of the film was a off center like they lost their pace a little bit.Looking forward to the third installment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Captain Jack Sparrow
    I loved this movie! Captain Jack (Depp) is the perfect pirate for this movie, he is the kind of character you cant help but love. I cant wait for the 3rd movie to come out and see what happens between Jack and Elizabeth!!!! i loved the 1st movie, and i almost love the 2nd movie even more! The action and special effects make up for the slightly confusing story line, the ending to this movie leaves a HUGE opening for the 3rd movie. If you didn't see this movie in theaters it is definetly worth wathing when it comes out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yo Ho Ho! The Pirate's Movie for Me!
    Pirates of the Carribean 2 is funny, creepy, scary, tense, adventurous, slimy, gross and magical. Johnny Depp is once again superb as the mincing pirate captain, and Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom are worthy back ups to Depp. As the movie starts, Knightly is left waiting for Bloom at the altar, only to find that they both have warrants out for their arrest for aiding in the escape of Captain Jack Sparrow. Their lives will be spared, however, if they can find a key and a hidden chest--- and the adventure is off!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Show On Earth.
    From Jack waking up in the forest to him and Locke looking down the hatch, Lost Season 1 is truly the best show on TV. The acting is the best, the sepcial effects are WOW, and the writing is so amazing!!! And one thing that makes Lost stand out is the flashbacks. You learn so much about all the characters. And another thing is Lost isn't racial. It's great for everyone. It has Asian people, black people, white poeple, kids, dogs and the characters are just so cool!!! I recommend Lost to anyone that can handle suspense and gore. If you can handle that stuff you can watch Lost!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Un-Be-Liev-Able.
    If this show had been released as a 48 hour, continuous movie showing at my local sticky-floored theater- I would have paid the exorbitant sum and watched it! This show is that good.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Mega-TV comes all too well to DVD box set editions.
    Don't even read the reviews just press the buy me button and prepare to watch the whole of Season One of Lost in about two or three days. This is one hell of a way to watch Lost on DVD. Those who sat through the episodes as they aired will admit that as one of the biggest selling TV series DVD box sets in history (also see `Firefly' for similar achievements) is better than the best of science-fiction series we have seen yet still offers many norms taken, and used well, from some of the best sitcoms of the twentieth-century. It is part `ER', part `Star Trek', part `Twin Peaks', part `Gilligan's Island', a whole big bit of `Survivor' with real drama and yet totally unique in every conceivable way and form with the episode (third on this season's disc 1) `Walkabout', which is widely considered one the best television episodes for any series ever aired. Lost will catch you hook, line and sinker. This will put a stop on every other media you watch or listen to for the next couple of days. The logistics are simple. A plane travelling from Sydney to LA has veered 1000km off course and smashed into an island strewing the passengers everywhere who soon learn from a co-pilot that their rescuers are looking for them in the wrong place. When the co-pilot is hurled into the air and eaten alive by an invisible beast who stalks the island the audience comes to realize that the island is no ordinary island, and so do the survivors who set about establishing themselves and facing various challenges that befall them. Who are they and will they survive? Will the Doctor fall for the possibly dangerous freckled heroin? Will the junkie die? Who stole her baby? Where did Locke learn to use a 9mm like that? Where does the electric cable come from? What is in the underground hatch? Who are the others? Are the fish poisonous? Is it in the future? Is he psychic? Are there dinosaurs? Is he who he really says he is? Who murdered him? Are there ghosts? Is this all an experiment? These are the kind of questions that can come up in a single episode of Lost. With that said and done there is much in Lost that can be rationally explained but a whole hunk of it will leave you Lost and bewildered. It may be as painful as having a tooth extraction waiting for the answer to any of the major questions but some of the smaller ones are eventually uncovered towards the end of Season one. So expect to sit through quite a number of background history stories for the series character build-ups, that are quite well driven, although extremely odd at times.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fast Moving
    The fist season starts out fast and strong.Battlestar Galactica and the fleet it protects have made over two-hundred jumps trying to outrun the Cylons who seem to be able to track them through jumps.Getting out of this has Adama and the president making very tough decisions.From there the series develops quickly.We see lots more about Cylon agents and some of the sleeper agents.We see the fleet have to locate resources and deal with dissidents within the fleet.The presidency gets challenged and a Vice President is elected.Adama and the President have a showdown.The fleet discovers Kobol and gets a step closer to discovering the location of Earth.Finally the season ends with a triple cliffhanger that will want you to go right into season 2.0.
    1-0 out of 5 stars this is knock-me-out terrible!
    i rented this mini series and prepared to sit thru all night to finish it. but it turned out to be so bad that i couldn't even finish the 1st disk. terrible script, bad graphics, bad actings, stupid dialogue...what else could i add here? i was so disappointed but at the same time so happy that i didn't buy it just paid $1.50(including sales tax), and i'll try to collect more plastic bottles to recycle center getting this wasted $1.50 back. sigh....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Caught me completely by surprise
    Battlestar Galactica was always one of those shows that it's not that I never got into it, I just never got around to it. Certain shows I don't have an interest of getting into while other ones end just while interest is building. So it was with a worry and anticipation that I decided to watch the show. As I kept watching, I wondered something: am I still watching because I'm addicted or because I can't stand having shows unfinished. Well it has to be the latter cause I'm dipping into season 2 now so it's obviously a really great show.

    3-0 out of 5 stars It is what it is
    I was excited to hear that the original cuts of "Star Wars" would see an official DVD release and was just as profoundly disappointed to learn that the quality wouldn't be much better than the bootlegs floating around since they're both essentially copies of the laserdisc version. I can live with the grain and print damage but the lack of anamorphic enhancement is as baffling as it is inexcusable. The films are still great fun, but the handling of the original cuts in this "limited edition" release is at best a lazy cash-in and at worst a cynical one.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Low quality transfers of original (and best) films
    Although it's nice to finally have the original movies which made George Lucas into the mogul he is today on dvd, the quality of these versions are low-quality 4 x 3 letterboxed transfers from video.Why do we have to choose between an edited goofy new scenes version and a low quality original?I want the original films in high quality transfers and when HD discs come out, in HD quality as well.Easy to do for Lucasfilm.

    Just wanted to add my voice to the chorus of people who only heard of Firefly after the original TV series was cancelled.I actually didn't even hear of the show until after Serenity (follow-on movie) was out on DVD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very good show, watch the pricing though...
    This series routinely goes on sale for $21.99 on Amazon.It is worth buying, but if you want a bargain, keep checking for the price to drop from the $35.99 it is selling for now.Just a friendly hint. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Gradually gets better...
    I decided to give this show a try because I enjoy Jensen Ackles, and he is probably the break-out star of this show, definitely. The premise of this show, two brothers who travel around the country fighting 'supernatural' "bad guys", is excellent, with plenty of story possibilities and action. The "bad guys" range from demons, to ghosts, to weird creatures out of folk lore and legend. Very interesting stuff. However, the first few episodes of the show tend to be of the 'freak-of-the-week' type, just like the first few episodes of Smallville. Keep watching, though, because a subtle and slow-developing under-plot begins to take form. And it's a fun one. Season two will have you glued to the screen. And if you aren't into the spooky stuff, then Ackles' character has a dry humor and sarcastic personality that will surely entertain you. Over all, it's a welcome break from reality TV, and rich California teenager crisis dramas.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Well-Crafted and Entertaining Show.
    For those like me with little time to watch television and no money for Tivo, buying this DVD set was a godsend. Playing catch-up with Supernatural Season One was well worth it. This show is remarkable. The writing, acting and directing are all superb and well crafted. Each episode is connected, vibrant and genuinely fun to watch. Any fan of horror, sci-fi, comedy, or just good entertainment will get their money's worth.

    SUPERNATURAL has a lot going for it:it is generally spooky, even though the storylines are derived from horror stories we've all seen before, but to the writers and directors credit, they are twisted enough to make them seem fresh again.We get vampires, urban legends, Wendigos, witches, etc., and our heroes are stout warriors against them.To reiterate the basic premise, Sam and Dean are brothers who are following in the footsteps of their supernatural investigator father in the quest to find the demon that killed their mother and Sam's girlfriend, while fighting various other horrors along the way.Jared Padalecki is the sullen younger brother Sam, whose quest for a "normal" life ends with his lady's murder and his brother's insistence he join him in his quest to find their missing father.Jensen Ackles is all dimple and macho bravado as Dean, the protective brother who is intent on dedicating his life to his demon demolishing.While the actors are both adequate, there are times when their affectatious mannerisms grow tedious.Also, their bickering and oneuppance get repetitious; there's not one episode where they're not arguing about something or differing on just what their goal in life is.A little less focus on their bickering might have made the series episodes move a little tighter.Anyway, this is one of the better horror series of recent television history and I did enjoy the first season...and it has a heck of a cliffhanger.On to season 2 I guess. ...
