Star Wars: The Clone Wars Lucas and company can't help but capitalize on the Star Wars saga.  Now that the saga is complete, a new production has slipped through the cracks.  "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" pretty much bombed at the box office.  It is being released on Blu-ray and DVD a little less than just three months after being released in theaters.  But that will not stop the Lucas gang from pushing forward. "Clone Wars" serves as the precursor to the "Clone Wars" TV series.  Although, after the unsuccessful film, I'm not sure where the TV series stands.  "The Clone Wars" is the first feature length production to come out of the Lucasfilm Animation division.  Hopefully the next venture will be better. It is unclear where the film is supposed to fit within the true Star Wars saga.  Theoretically, it is supposed to fall in between ...

Polar Express, The: Presented in 3-D “The Polar Express” is likely to become a perennial Christmas movie, if it hasn’t already. It will be going to be shown again and again to kids as the calendar winds down to Christmas. The storytelling is simple and heartfelt, and the computer generated art is beautiful. Add to that a breath-taking pace that will allow even adults to watch a repeat performance almost back-to-back almost immediately to review their favorite parts. The story originally took shape as a 32-page book written and drawn by Chris Allsburg. Hollywood seems to be having a field day with 32-page kids’ books lately, because “Shrek” began the same way. To further enlighten you, Allsburg wrote and drew two other books that became movies, both of which were also 32-pagers: “Jumanji” and “Zathura”. At 32 pages with pictures, the book was no doubt a great visual ...

Tinker Bell I know, I know, "Tinker Bell, you've got to be kidding me."  I have to say that I was not keen n watching this film.  While Disney has a reputation for well-planned and animated stories, "Tinker Bell" just didn't seem to have appeal, let alone the fact that it is a direct-to-video new movie.  That said, I am glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the film.  It has most all of the key elements that makes a Disney film successful; a simple story, loveable characters, and beautiful animation. "Tinker Bell" is the coming of age story of the fairy that captured the hearts of Peter Pan fans.  Tinker Bell, Tink for short, comes to Pixie Hollow through the magic in the first laugh of a newborn baby.  Upon arising from the pixie dust, she must choose the symbol ...

Persepolis Marjane Satrapi grew up in Iran; she was about 7 when the Shah was overthrown.  Later, she was educated in Vienna, returned to a far more oppressive Iran than she left, and finally moved to France.  She wrote and drew two autobiographic novels in comic book form; they were the basis of this extraordinary movie. There isn’t anything else quite like this.  It’s definitely not for children—it fully earns that PG-13 rating—but it isn’t grimly purposeful and serious, either.  It’s remarkably light, even occasionally funny, but also honest, true and forthright.  What with all the troubles centering on the Middle East in recent years, this movie is especially helpful and instructive to Westerners, puzzled by the people of that region.  Satrapi doesn’t make any claims that Iranians are just like everyone else, but her story does display their common humanity, their ...

Dragonball Z - Tree of Might / Lord Slug The explosive success of the megahit Japanese animated series “Dragonball Z” inspired Toei to release theatrical films based on the series, and timed their release to coincide with Japanese school holidays.  Funimation has been rapidly releasing the theatrical features on Blu-ray in 2-film sets.  This release is of “Tree of Might” and “Lord Slug” which are the third and fourth films in the series. “Tree of Might” (originally titled “Dragon Ball Z: Super Decisive Battle for Planet Earth”) tells of the potentially apocalyptic destruction of the earth when the villainois Pullece (Tulles in the dub) and his gang plant a single seed of the Shinseiju tree on Earth.  This tree, meant to supply food for the gods, infiltrates the roots systems of all plants and invades all water sources, which will drain the Earth of its life, eventually turning the planet ...
