Avatar (Extended Collector's Edition) (2009) Here it is.  The edition that you have been waiting for.  The Extended Collector's Unrated version of "Avatar."  Announced before the release of the film on any home video format, the collector's edition provides you with everything lacking from the initial release, well, almost.  The collector's edition is lacking the one feature that most people would actually want, and that is the 3-D version of the film.  Looks like there will be yet another edition of the film once the ridiculous exclusive 3-D purchase packages are finished. So you knew this version was coming and there is no reason to be upset if you have already purchased the barebones first release of the film on Blu-ray.  You had fair warning. By know we are probably all familiar with the film, at least on a large scale.  I have found many know of ...

Alien Anthology (1979/1986/1992/1997) The "Alien" saga is one of those anthologies that rings a bell and makes you believe that it is one of the best out there.  Someone may remember the whole series while others just remember bits and pieces with no real regard as to which piece came from which one of the films.  However, like with most all anthologies, the quality of the films decrease as the series progresses. There are a few exceptions to the above however.  In my opinion the second film is better than the first and the fourth film is better than the third, but only marginally with the latter. The first "Alien" film was released in 1979 and is considered by most to the best of the series.  For me, personally, the film was a bit redundant within itself.  However, in terms of a sci-fi, this film ...

Nanny McPhee (2005) “Nanny McPhee” is based on a series of children’s books and has been adapted for the screen by Emma Thompson.  The film doesn’t succeed on all levels, but this is certainly an enjoyable youngsters’ film.  Even parents will find parts of this film interesting.  While the film is not as magical as it could have been, and can be over the top at others, it still has attraction. The film is another adaptation of the fairy tale stories in which the stepmother is evil and horrid.  In this case, Mr. Brown is a widowed man that is left with seven children to care for on a mortician’s salary.  The only way he can keep his family together and retain the house is by receiving an allowance from the children’s great aunt, a vile woman.  Her ultimatum is that he must remarry ...

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief (2010) The world of children, young adult, fantasy filmmaking belongs exclusively to the Harry Potter saga.  Though there have been many attempts by studios outside of Warner Bros. to try and steal Harry's thunder, all have tried and failed.  The latest in the lineup is "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief." The film showed promise in its premise initially, but ultimately it is a bit of a let down.  Still, it fairs better than its predecessors, save Harry Potter.  What has been lacking in fantasy films?  Why, Greek mythology of course.  "Percy Jackson" tries to fill that void.  Greek mythology is a bit of hobby of mine and I can tell you that the film does a fairly good job at incorporating some Greek figures.  Though there are also some misses, which will likely be missed by those that haven't ...

Alice In Wonderland (2010) Alice In Wonderland is a well-told story from Lewis Carroll that captured imaginations worldwide.  The original Disney animated feature was tremendous and most were looking forward to this live-action release of "Alice In Wonderland."  With Tim Burton at the helm how could it go wrong right?  Wrong. Tim Burton seems to be past his prime.  In the beginning his unique visual style was well received.  It brought a personalized and emotional sense to each film.  "Edward Scissorhands" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas" are critical successes.  However, as time has progressed this visual style has become less unique and simply just an imposition on the film at hand.  Classic tales that need no revisions are subjected to Burton's eerie style.  "Sweeney Todd" and "Charlie and The Chocolate Factory" are prime examples of this.  And now we have "Alice In Wonderland." As we have ...
