title: The 3 Wise Men (Los Reyes Magos) studio: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring (voices): Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez, Lupillo Rivera, Jose Luis Rodriguez “El Puma”, Marcos Witt, Jaci Velasquez, Kuno Becker, and Angelica Vale DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odem “The 3 Wise Men” is a Biblical story of the three wise men that bore gifts to the baby Jesus on the night of his birth. However, the story is definitely by way of “The Lord of the Rings”. Magic and dragons, shape-shifters and a demon exists in this tale that might surprise some parents hoping to rent or buy a DVD in time for Christmas.

title: Tarzan function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();† studio: Disney Home Video MPAA rating: G starring: Tony Goldwyn, Minnie Driver, Glenn Close, Rosie O'Donnell, Brian Blessed, Nigel Hawthorne, Lance Henriksen, Wayne Knight. release year: 1999 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren It's surprising that this is the first animated feature about Tarzan of the Apes. The durable creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs has been done in almost every other medium from books (beginning in 1912), to radio, to movie features and movie serials, TV series, etc. etc. The story is a natural for animation -- and it's been done splendidly by the Disney team. The good parts of "Tarzan" (the first movie to have that one-word title) are so exhilarating, entertaining and exuberant that it's not hard to overlook the weaker parts. "Tarzan" is not the equal of "Beauty and the Beast" or "The Lion King," still the two high-water marks of recent Disney features, but is instead at the top of the second ...

title: The Emperor’s New Groove function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Walt Disney Pictures/Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring (voices): David Spade, John Goodman, Eartha Kitt, Patrick Warburton, Wendie Malick, Kellyann Kelso, Eli Russell Linnetz, Tom Jones. Theatrical release: 2000 DVD release (this "new groove edition"): 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-half Stars sound/picture rating: Four-and-a-half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren This is a second-tier Disney cartoon feature, not one of their major efforts, but it’s often very funny. It’s more in the style of the great Warner Bros. shorts of the 1940s and early 50s than in the Disney tradition, with lots of quick, wry gags that depend on razor-sharp timing. It seemed to come and go in theaters rather quickly, but was popular enough to generate a made-for-video sequel, “Kronk’s New Groove.”

Simmons, Olivia d'Abo, Jillian Bowen, David Oliver Cohen, John Di Maggio, Marc Donato, Brian George, Jess Harnell, Brian Posehn, Russi Taylor , Kevin Michael Richardson , Mark Moseley, Andre Stojka director: Isao Takahata film release year: 1994 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea Okay, let's get this out of the way first. This 1994 Studio Ghibli "Heisei Tanuki Gassen Pom Poko" (roughly translated as "Heisei-Era Tanuki War Pom Poko" and shortened in the United States to simply "Pom Poko") release features anthropomorphized woodland creatures crushing Japanese riot police with their giant furry testicles.
