title: Atlantis: The Lost Empire: Two-Disc Collector's 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG (action violence) starring: (Voices) James Garner, Leonard Nimoy, Michael J. Fox, Cree Summer, Claudia Christian, John Mahoney, Phil Morris, Don Novello, Jacqueline Obradors, Jim Varney, Florence Stanley release year: 2001 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Atlantis: the Lost Empire" stands out as a return to classic storytelling for the Disney people. What’s surprising is that the return has taken so long. Disney has finally rediscovered one of the principal areas of entertainment that the studio perfected back in the early days of Walt Disney himself. This DVD harkens back to the days of "Treasure Island," "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and "Swiss Family Robinson." In the presentation of "Atlantis," the audience receives the gift of a timeless tale and sterling heroes, and a world of total wonderment menaced by base villains. Fraught with peril and action, "Atlantis: the Lost Empire" holds equal footing with ...

title: Shrek 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: Universal & DreamWorks MPAA rating: PG starring: Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz, John Lithgow, Vincent Cassel, Jim Cummings, Chris Miller, Kathleen Freeman release year: 2001 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren One of the biggest financial hits of 2001, "Shrek" took many by surprise. "Antz," the previous computer-animation outing from Pacific Data Images (PDI) and DreamWorks, was better than expected, but "Shrek" is a whole heck of a lot better than that. Bright, sassy and funny, at times it's also genuinely moving. Partly a sendup of fairy tales, partly an effective fairy tale itself, "Shrek" has something for everyone (including numerous gross-out jokes). However, it's unlike the Pixar/Disney films in that it isn't aimed simultaneously at everyone; the jokes at the expense of fairy tales (largely the Disney versions of those fairy tales) are for adults, while the slapstick is largely for kids. But it's a combination that worked wonders at the boxoffice.

  title: Dumbo (60th Anniversay 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring: (Voices) Edward Brophy, Verna Felton, Sterling Holloway, Herman Bing, Billy Bletcher, Cliff Edwards, John McLeish release year: 1941 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren "Dumbo" is perfect; some regard it as the best Disney animated film ever made, largely for its intense emotional power, and that it deals with the enforced separation of a mother and child. Furthermore, like a lot of Disney films, it's about an outsider, Dumbo, the little elephant born with enormous ears. But it's also bright, funny, very satisfying, and has one of the greatest, most surrealistic sequences of just pure animation of any Disney film.

title: The Emperor’s New Groove (The Ultimate Groove 2-Disc Collector’s 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring (voices): David Spade, John Goodman, Eartha Kitt, Patrick Warburton release year: 2000 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "The Emperor’s New Groove: The Ultimate Groove 2-Disc Collector’s Edition" comes with so much additional material – a whole second disc’s worth that, at 85 minutes, is longer than the feature it supports – that it’s tempting to recommend the set for its informational value, even though "Groove" itself proves that a little snideness goes an awfully long way.

title: Lady And The Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: G starring (voices): Scott Wolf, Alyssa Milano, Chazz Palmintieri, Jodi Benson release year: 2001 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Agreeable if uninspiring, "Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp’s Adventure" should please small, dog-loving children. Grown-ups who tune in will mainly be impressed by the care the animators have taken to reproduce various aspects of the 1955 original. Disney animation fans will of course recall that "Lady and the Tramp" was the story of a star-crossed romance between proper cocker spaniel Lady and wrong-side-of-the-tracks mutt Tramp. Despite seemingly overwhelming odds, all turned out happily, with Tramp being adopted by Lady’s family (two humans who the dogs assume are named "Jim Dear" and "Darling"). At the end, Darling had a little baby boy, while Lady had a litter of pups.
