Length: 162 Min.
Video: Anamorphic Widescreen 2.35

Stars:
Shahrukh Khan
Priyanka Chopra

Plot:
A huge Indian contingent embarks on a dangerous cat-and-mouse trail of capturing DON (Shah Rukh Khan) - the ruthless drug mafia in Malaysia. When DON gets seriously injured in a police encounter, the word that he is dead begins to do the rounds. The reality, of course, is that DON is held captive in a secret location, while his bumpkin of a look-alike, Vijay, is polished and sent to take down DON's gang. In a bizarre twist of fate, when the man shielding the humble and streetwise Vijay, is killed, the latter comes to terms with the horrifying realization that both the police and the gang are out to nab him for different reasons. In a desperate attempt to prove his innocence, he is aided by the glamorously staggering Roma (Priyanka Chopra), and handsomely striking, Jasjit (Arjun Rampal), who owes Vijay a favor for care-taking his son during his imprisonment. But will Vijay be successful in his mission' Based on the successful erstwhile classic of the same name, which featured the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, the contemporary and stylishly crafted DON, features Bollywood czar Shah Rukh Khan playing a double role in one of the most defining performances of his career, teamed for the first time with former Miss World, Priyanka Chopra. The biggest and most keenly awaited motion picture of 2006, DON is a high-octane, tension-filled, twisty roller coaster of a ride, with just the right dose of glamour, action, suspense & romance.

My Thoughts:
Although nothing special, I enjoyed this movie. There was a fact which I found unrealistic at first, but the ending explained it for me.
There are a lot of martial arts fights in this one, which usually is a plus :)
The songs are average and add nothing to the story. This is one of those films, where the songs are there just for the sake of it (because it is expected in Bollywood movies).

Xena: Warrior Princess Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 1: Disc 6


21. The Greater Good
When Xena is left near death after being struck by a poisoned dart, Gabrielle is forced to impersonate the Warrior Princess to protect a group of villagers.

My Thoughts:
This is an excellent episode. We get a little sneak peek at Callisto who we meet in the next episode. We get lots of Gabrielle... and she looks great dressed as Xena! And lots of great action. I don't remember ever seeing this episode before. I think this is one I must have missed when originally watching the series. But I must say... it has become one of my favorite episodes!

My Rating:

22. Callisto
Xena is reminded of her past when a malicious female warrior, Callisto, whose family was killed by Xena's former army, exacts her revenge on the Warrior Princess by impersonating her while on bloody rampages.

My Thoughts:
This one we meet not only Callisto... but we also meet Joxer who is played by Ted Raimi. I enjoyed this one... not quite as much as the last one... but it was very good.

My Rating:

23. Death Mask
After being reunited with her estranged brother, Toris, Xena decides to join him in his plan to kill the raider who destroyed their village years before.

My Thoughts:
This is an ok episode... definitely not what I would call a favorite. I did like meeting Xena's brother in this episode... but for the most part I found it kinda slow.

My Rating:

24. Is There a Doctor in the House?
Caught in the middle of a war, Xena and Gabrielle aid the wounded inhabitants of a healing temple, then try to mediate talks between the warring

My Thoughts:
This season finale went from being slightly entertaining to good and entertaining once Gabrielle got hurt. At the beginning I found Xena's knowledge of modern medical techniques in an old setting a little too far fetched. I did however like how she seemed to accidentally find the way to save Gabrielle's life. But once they got past the knowing of the medical techniques the good story kicked in and I was able to enjoy the episode much more.

My Rating:

I really enjoyed revisiting this first season after many years. And I was surprised to find an episode or two that I don't remember ever seeing before. Now I am looking forward to continuing on to Season 2.
