Peter Pan, a review by Danae Cassandra
Year of Release: 1953
Directed By: Hamilton Luske, Clyde Geronimi, Wilfred Jackson
Starring: Bobby Driscoll, Kathryn Beaumont, Hans Conried, Bill Thompson
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Musical, Animation
Think of the happiest things as Peter Pan soars to spectacular new heights for the first time on Blu-ray—now more sensational than ever with digitally restored picture and brilliant high definition sound!
Bid your cares goodbye as Wendy and her brothers embark on fantastic adventures with the hero of their bedtime stories...Peter Pan! With faith, trust and Tinker Bell's pixie dust, Peter teaches them how to fly and leads them to the "second star to the right" and beyond...to Never Land!
This is still a fun little film, even if Peter's egocentrism doesn't come off as cool now like it does when you're a kid, and "What Makes the Red Man Red?" makes one cringe. The animation is top notch, and I've always liked the Crocodile. He's still my favorite, especially in his sly expressions and how happy he looks at the chance to eat Hook.
Still don't know why this is on blu-ray and we'll likely never see even a DVD release of Song of the South.

Rockula, a review by Jimmy
MOVIE / DVD INFO:
Title: Rockula (1990)
Director: Luca Bercovici
Video: Full Frame
Rockula is about a male vampire who lost his lady love centuries ago. She was killed by a pirate with a rhinestone peg leg, wielding a large ham bone. Our hero, the vampire, did nothing to save her. So he is now cursed to watch her be born again in another life, and then watch her die, strangely enough by a pirate with a rhinestone peg leg, wielding you-know-what. Now, in 1990, he has, he suspects, his last chance to try to save her instead of watching get clubbed over and over again down through the years. Oh, and he becomes a rock star in the process.
My Thoughts:Even if I know one person here who would be scared to death at the idea of watching this film, I must say it isn't scary at all (not even one second). This is just a silly love story with a vampire, but he isn't a sparkling vampire so it's a plus. Also it is a musical wich would be the scary part for a certain someone, but it's not a good one. The song doesn't really fit in the story, except for a duo between Dean Cameron and Tawny Feré none of the song are that great. It could have been good since the concept of the film is interesting, but most of the acting aren't that good since they have cast people who can sing and Dean Cameron play the character with too much restraint (common I expect more crazyness from Dave Marshak).
Not really recommanded, anyway that would be hard to recommand the film who have killed the career of Dean Cameron and put Cannon Films to death (after that film they did Street Knight in 93 and it was over).

HawthoRNe: Season 1 Ep. 2: Healing Time, a review by addicted2dvd
HawthoRNe: Season 1 Ep. 2
A patient with a potentially fatal aneurysm believes Christina is his wife and confesses to having an affair.
Notable Guest Stars:
Malcolm-Jamal Warner (The Cosby Show) as Fred
Cloris Leachman (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) as Mrs. Lachman
I enjoyed this one quite a bit as well. Good medical cases... good side storylines. I liked the character Cloris Leachman played. It is a shame they weren't able to get her for more then one episode.
