title: Ice Age (2-Disc Special Edition) 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: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom The action-packed opening of Scrat the saber-toothed squirrel trying desperately to bury an acorn he has found, only to trigger an avalanche of ice, seizes us and doesn't let go. Scrat launches the story and maintains a presence throughout the film that ties so many things together and reminds us that nothing can be taken for granted. Chapter 1 delivers a senses-shattering attack as the ice cracks and rips through the surround sound system, exploding loud enough to fire through the subwoofer. Scrat's nervous eye twitching shows the lengths the animators went to in order to bring their story to real life in an animated world. The thud of the shattered ice shards, falling like deadly shrapnel in the wake of Scrat's run for his life, ...

(Collector's Edition 2 Disc Set) 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(); <br> studio: Walt Disney Home Entertainment/Pixar MPAA rating: G starring: John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Mary Gibbs, Steve Buscemi, James Coburn, Jennifer Tilly, Bob Peterson, John Ratzenberger release year: 2001 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Without fail, year after year, Disney puts out great movies for kids and for adults who are kids at heart. "Monsters, Inc." is another one of those heart-warming and fun cinematic experiences. Joined by Pixar for this new film, Disney succeeds in delivering an absolute gem of computer graphic storytelling, just as the Disney/Pixar pairing did with the "Toy Story" movies. Sully (voiced by John Goodman) and Mike (voiced by Billy Crystal) are two hard-working monsters trying to get scream power from kids in the human world by frightening them while they are sleeping. The monster world is totally dependent on the power of these captured screams. The monsters also have their own fears: the primary ...

title: Waking Life 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(); <br> studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Wiley Wiggins, (voices) Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, Steven Soderbergh, and Adam Goldberg release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Five Stars (Emphasis on the visual) reviewed by: Mel Odom "Waking Life" is not a DVD that lends itself to light viewing. During the course of the animated film, concepts of life and death, philosophies on how to live, and biology and chemistry come into play. The discussions also include presentations regarding the responsibility one has to one’s society and the responsibility one has to oneself.

Some punk kid inside the suit? Bruce Wayne as some old geezer? Ace the bat-hound? Blasphemy! Needless to say, many of those same fans not only ate crow -- they embraced the series whole-heartedly. And when Warner Bros. pushed back the release date of "Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker" in September 2000 and rumors immediately surfaced regarding cuts and changes, fans petitioned for the original ...

title: Peter Pan (Special Edition) 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 Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring (voices): Bobby Driscoll, Kathryn Beaumont, Paul Collins, Tommy Luske, Bill Thompson, Hans Conried release year: 1953 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Just the name Peter Pan evokes restlessness in children everywhere, a need to go adventuring. Children who see the show become enamored of flying around rooms and homes, and pick up sticks and brooms to use as swords to fight evil pirates. The boy who would never grow up has become an icon in American life, and there has never been as grand a place invented as Never Land or a villain as black-hearted as Captain Hook.
