title: Batman: Mask Of The Phantasm 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: Warner Bros. Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: (Voices) Kevin Conway, Dana Delany, Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., Mark Hamill, Stacy Keach, Abe Vigoda, Dick Miller, Bob Hastings release year: 1993 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren When the "Batman" animated cartoon series began -- well, the latest about the original Batman, anyway -- it was greeted with cheers from Batmaniacs the world over. THIS is the way Batman SHOULD be done! they thundered, few having been satisfied with the two Tim Burton movies. (They didn't yet know what horrors awaited, once Joel Schumacher took over direction.) BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM is a feature cartoon from the TV-cartoon team; in fact, it was originally intended to be a straight-to-video release, but in the middle of a gap between live-action Batman movies, Warner Bros. decided to release it theatrically. And again, though it died at the boxoffice, those same Batmaniacs greeted the ...

title: Batman Beyond: The Movie 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: Not rated starring: Will Friedle, Kevin Conroy, Linda Hamilton, William H. Macy release year: 1998 film rating: Three Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea ‘Batman Beyond: The Movie’ is a surprisingly class act in every way but one. While it’s aimed at teens and youngsters, it has an intelligent script, moderately dimensional characters, a distinguished vocal cast and a sound mix with music and effects that is better than a lot of the live action out there. Furthermore, this DVD provides a lot of bang for your buck, with not only the title item but four TV episodes - ‘Gotham Golem,’ ‘Winning Edge,’ ‘Dead Man’s Hand’ and ‘Meltdown’ - included in the package. Adding courtesy to generosity, each of the episodes is broken into eight chapters (the movie has eighteen chapters), making for some of the easiest scene access ever on a DVD release of episodic television. What, then, is the ...

title: The Jungle Book 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): Sebastian Cabot, Phil Harris, Louis Prima, George Sanders release year: 1967 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein If you are of a certain age and temperament, chances are Disney’s 1967 animated version of ‘The Jungle Book’ made an indelible impression. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t seen the movie in decades. When Phil Harris’ Baloo the Bear bursts into his paean to the ursine good life, "The Bare Necessities," in Chapter 10, you automatically start singing right along.

title: The Iron Giant 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring (voices): Jennifer Aniston, Harry Connick Jr., Eli Marienthal, Vin Diesel release year: 1999 film rating: Three and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The Iron Giant’ is an unusual animated film in several respects. The script by director Brad Bird and Tim McCanlies, based on Ted Hughes book ‘The Iron Man,’ would be right at home in a live-action feature, with a tone and sensibility somewhere between ‘E.T.’ and ‘Mighty Joe Young.’ The dialogue is consistently, startlingly witty and the character animation is fluid and lively. However, while the movie was clearly made with "the whole family" (and all that the phrase implies) in mind, the finale and a few earlier events may be a wee bit dark for the very young.

title: The Prince Of Egypt (DTS) 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: DreamWorks Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring (voices): Val Kilmer, Ralph Fiennes, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sandra Bullock release year: 1998 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Historically, the combination of animation and religion has not been thought of as either sophisticated or engaging. The mixture has generally resulted in pieces that are stiff in scripting, acting and artwork, usually to be banished to some barbaric hour of the morning on a local station.
