title: The Jungle Book 2 studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: Haley Joel Osment, John Goodman release year: 2003 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Viewers can pretty much count on Disney Studios for good music in their movies, well-drawn and lively characters, and . . . sequels. Those sequels aren’t always the wisest of choices because oftentimes Disney hasn’t put as much effort into producing the second movie. “The Jungle Book,” first animated back in 1967 and an instant classic, waited over 30 years for the sequel treatment.

Wilson release year: 2003 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom In 2001, Disney Studios brought out one of the best children’s animated movies of the year. Although not in the ballpark with Disney’s joint efforts with PIXAR, “Atlantis: The Lost Empire” certainly enjoyed audience favor in theaters and as a two-disc collector’s edition. “Atlantis: Milo’s Return” offers a second helping of the stalwart heroes who first journeyed into the hidden depths of the sea to find the legendary lost civilization of Atlantis. In the first movie, Milo Thatch, the intrepid cartographer recruited by Mr. Preston Whitmore, deciphered the clues hidden in an old journal to lead the team of specialists on their quest. As a result, Milo found Atlantis, encountered base villains, saved the day, and found his ...

However, such a comparison makes it sound as if Miyazaki merely follows in the footsteps of his Western counterpart. Nothing could be further from the truth, which is that the director brings a charming blend of sweetness, otherworldly danger, and character-driven drama that appeals to every generation that is almost completely unique in animation today -- in any country.

title: It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown 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: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring (voices): Todd Barbee, Bill Melendez release year: 2003 (on DVD) film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Charles M. Schultz created “Peanuts” back October 2, 1950. Schultz wrote and drew the strip officially retired in December of 1999, after 49 years of drawing and writing about the same characters. Today, since the creator has passed away, it’s amazing to see that everyone still know who Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Sally, Linus and the rest of the gang are, but no one really remembers Schultz. The “Peanuts” crew has become iconic to generations of kids and adults, speaking to them all on differing levels and with emotional complexity.

Traditional Disney audiences may have some objections to the actions of the lead characters, but the film delivers the goods on action and humor. Chris Sanders came up with the idea and co-wrote the script with Dean DeBlois and also shared the directing credits.
