102 Dalmatians, a review by Dragonfire




Get ready for outrageous fun in Disney's 102 Dalmatians. It's a brand-new, hilarious adventure, starring the audacious Oddball, the spotless Dalmatian puppy on a search for her rightful spots, and Waddlesworth, the wisecracking, delusional macaw who thinks he's a Rottweiler. Barking mad, this unlikely duo leads a posse of puppies on a mission to outfox the wildly wicked, ever-scheming, Cruella DeVil. Filled with chases, close calls, hilarious antics and thrilling escapes all the way from London through the streets of Paris – and a Parisian bakery – this adventure-packed tale is wacky good fun your entire family will want to howl over again and again.

My Thoughts

This is an entertaining movie, though it wasn't as good as 101 Dalmatians (1996).  Glenn Close was still great as Cruella, but too many things seemed to resort to silliness..excessive silliness.  It also seemed a bit odd to me that Roger and Anita weren't around or even mentioned, yet one of the puppies was back as an adult dog with a new owner.  Waddlesworth was cute with how he thought he was a dog.  This was a decent family movie, though the fact that Cruella wanted to make a coat out of puppies again could be upsetting to younger children.  Cruella herself might be a bit scary at times to some children as well.

 :D

The Revolutionary War, a review by Antares


The Revolutionary War (1995) 80/100 - The main strength of this documentary was the inclusion of Charles Kuralt as narrator. It's very sad that most people today have forgotten this eloquent broadcaster whose ease of delivery always made him a joy to listen to. The programs tended to stay on the course of the battles that took place between 1775 and the war's end in 1783. It does mention the Continental Congress, Thomas Paine's writings and all the legislative taxes levies upon the colonists, but these series of events take a backseat to the battles of the fledgling Continental Army. Being a student of military history and tactics, this suited me just fine.

What the color coding means...

Teal = Masterpiece
Dark Green = Classic or someday will be
Lime Green = A good, entertaining film
Orange = Average
Red = Cinemuck
Brown = The color of crap, which this film is

My Pilot/Finale Episode Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd



Charmed

Pilot:
Something Wicca This Way Comes
Reunited in the grand Victorian home of their childhood, a trio of sisters, Prue (Shannen Doherty), Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) and Piper (Holly Marie Combs) discovers they are gifted Wicca witches. Little do they know that their newfound powers mean that they are now prey to evil forces.

My Thoughts:
This was the start of one of my all time favorite TV Shows... probably my absolute favorite show! Three beautiful and strong women. One thing I always liked in movies and TV series is a strong female character. And this series don't have one... but 3 in every episode. This is the show that also made me such a huge fan of the always lovely Holly Marie Combs. I so wish she would return to acting... though I do understand her wanting to spend time with her family for now.

Finale:
Forever Charmed
Piper enlists Coop's help to travel back in time and change the events that lead to the deaths of Phoebe and Paige

My Thoughts:
One thing I will forever be thankful for is that they seen the end coming on this series... and was able to end this series in a very positive way and allow for closure on the show. This could possibly be my favorite TV Series Finale of all time. If not... pretty darn close to it. I know that Shannen Doherty left this series on not the best terms in the world... but if I have one regret about this series finale it has to be that not even a picture of Prue was shown in the finale.
