Celtic Woman: A Christmas Celebration, a review by Danae Cassandra




Celtic Woman: A Christmas CelebrationOverview:My Thoughts:
This is one of my favorite Christmas concert DVDs.  These ladies have beautiful voices and do some of the best renditions of traditional carols I've heard.  I really want to get their other concert as well.

The Aristocats, a review by Danae Cassandra




The Aristocats
Year of Release: 1970
Directed By: Wolfgang Reitherman
Starring: Phil Harris, Eva Gabor, Sterling Holloway, Scatman Crothers
Genre: Adventure, Romance, Musical

Overview:
Everybody wants to be a cat! Disney's unforgettable classic The Aristocats swings like never before in high definition. Share all the heart, humor and irresistible music with your family in this jazzy Special Edition 2-Disc Combo Pack!

In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three kittens. When her greedy, bumbling butler attempts the ultimate catnap caper, the rough-and-tumble alley cat Thomas O'Malley and his band of swingin' jazz cats must save the day. It's the purr-fect blend of comedy and adventure.

This timeless treasure boasts remarkable picture and sound quality, fun-filled bonus features and memorable songs the whole family will enjoy. It's the cat's pajamas in Disney High Definition!

My Thoughts:
I was in the mood for something short, light and fun, and this always fits that bill. This is one of my personal favorite Disney films, even though I'm well aware that it's considered a 'lesser' film in their catalog. Yet, I'm never sure why. I like all the characters, even spoiled little Marie who is always the one in danger. The villain is truly bumbling but has believable motivation. The two dogs are hilarious. Sure, the tale is a pretty simple one, but the romance is genuine, the voice acting is good, and I come to appreciate the art style and animation more each time I watch it.

Also, the blu-ray release is beautiful and this film has never looked better.  If you like the movie, it's definitely worth the upgrade.

Bechdel Test: Pass
Mako Mori Test: Fail

The 2013 Pilot Review, a review by DJ Doena


Ironside

Ironside @ IMDb
Ironside @ Wikipedia

Synopsis: A remake of the classic show with Raymond Burr (Perry Mason). This time Blair Underwood takes the role Robert Ironside, a cop in a wheelchair who was accidentally shot in the back by his partner a few years ago.

My Opinion: It's a cop show. Not my favourite diet per se and this one comes off completely straight. Someone else can watch it but I won't.
