Matrix, The (Trilogy) - The Ultimate Collection Other than the Star Wars Trilogy and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, there is no other film series that HDTV aficionados have been clamoring for more than the Matrix series. Warner Brothers released two box sets of the Matrix Trilogy on the HD DVD format, The Complete and Ultimate Matrix Collections.  For the super fans out there, this is the 7-disc Ultimate Matrix Collection, featuring not only all three films in the series with newly re-mastered picture and sound, but also includes the companion piece, The Matrix Revisited, and the best-selling animated feature, The Animatrix. The set also has three entirely new standard definition DVDs packed with supplemental materials that encompass every aspect of the Matrix universe, including two audio commentaries on each film, Enter the Matrix video game footage and 35 hours of deep-delving featurettes/documentaries. I hate to compare ...

Starship Troopers 3: Marauder Paul Verhoeven’s exuberant, gleefully excessive “Starship Troopers” (1997) may have irked fans of the Robert A. Heinlein novel it was based on, but it did well enough to generate a CGI-animated TV series and two sequels, “Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation” (2004) and this one, “Starship Troopers 3: Marauder.”  This newer entry in what now seems to be a movie series had a distinctly higher budget than “Hero of the Federation,” and was also helmed by a first-time director.  That had Phil Tippett at the head, who’d been in charge of the elaborate effects for the first film, this one is directed and written by Ed Neumeier, who scripted all three films (and cowrote “RoboCop”).  This one had some theatrical engagements overseas, but like the first sequel, has been released only on video in the United States. Nonetheless, Sony ...

Transformers "More Than Meets The Eye". Those immortal words have great meaning to millions of Transformer fans around the world. So when it was announced that Dreamworks and Michael Bay would be turning the famous 1980s cartoon into a live action film, there was natural skepticism. Even Michael Bay initially thought there was no way he was going to take on the Transformers project. Actor Shia LaBeouf, who plays Sam Witwicky, also thought that they were going to completely destroy the Transformer legacy. I will let you be the judge on whether they succeeded or not. Transformers follow the simplistic good versus evil structure. The Autobots defend the Earth and universe against the Decepticons. The war between them destroyed their home planet, and with the loss of the Allspark, the Transformers followed it to Earth. The Allspark, also known as the Cube, ...

Dragon Wars Buraki is an Imoogi—a bad Imoogi.  Bulcos search on behalf of bad Imoogis and their semi-human partners.  Imoogis aren’t exactly dragons, but their ambition in life is to grow up to become dragons.  But you knew that, right?  If not, you can learn that, and lots more, in “Dragon Wars” (aka “D-War”), an ambitious, inventive and lively South Korean epic, the most expensive movie made so far in that country.  It was a bid to create an international market for Korean movies, but it didn’t take.  Part of the problem is the labyrinthine mythology underlying this fantasy; another part is that it IS fantasy and not science fiction.  The American public seems to sit still for big-scale action pictures presented as science fiction, but shies away from them when they’re fantasy, unless they’re set in the past or based on ...

Pathfinder In the late 9th century, a Native American woman stumbles across the remains of a shipwrecked Viking vessel, the entire crew dead except for one traumatized boy.  While initially reluctant, the tribe’s elders take the boy in, rename him “Ghost” and he is raised as one of their own.  Ghost has traumatic memories of his Viking upbringing and was witness to their slaughter of other Native American tribes.  When Ghost tried to intervene, he incurred his father’s wrath.  Fifteen years later, Ghost (now played by Karl Urban), and a young girl are attacked in the woods by Vikings (whom the tribe refers to as “Dragon Men”).  Returning to his village, he finds everyone slaughtered by the horrible Huns.  Ghost uses a Viking sword to kill one of them, injures another, and escapes into the woods, where he is able to ...
