Windtalkers, a review by addicted2dvd



Windtalkers
In the brutal World War II Battle of Saipan, Sergeant Jo Enders (Academy Award Winner Nicolas Cage) guards - and ultimately befriends - Ben Yahzee (Adam Beach), a young Navajo trained in the one wartime code never broken by the enemy, the Navajo Code. But if Yahzee shoudl fall into Japanese hands, how far will Enders go to save the military's most powerful secret?

My Thoughts:
This is one of the several I have that I never seen before. But I had always thought the trailer looked good. And I did enjoy this movie quite a bit. I didn't realize until I watched it that this movie was based on a true story. I never personally been much of a fan of Nicolas Cage... but never disliked him either. I do think he did a fine job in this movie. I would definitely recommend this movie... especially if you like war movies.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts
Out of all the classic Disney’s this has always been one of my favourites. While I don’t know if any film adaption can ever really live up to Lewis Carroll’s original work this one surely does the novel justice for me. In this film I think the surrealism has been captured perfectly and some scenes such as the Mad Tea Party are close to being some of my favourite animated scenes of all time. I think the strangeness is nicely balanced with an element of humour here and the voice acting and character design are fantastic, such as the Cheshire cat who nicely resembles Tenniel’s original illustrations for the novel. While Alice may not be as much of a musical as many other Disney films I find the songs rather enjoyable and ones that have stayed with me since I was a child. Out of all the Alice adaption’s I have seen this is my favourite, I guess we will have to wait and see if Burton’s upcoming version can impress me as much as this classic Disney flick. The extras on this DVD were also quite good and I enjoyed looking through the concept art and storyboards of the film.

Charmed Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Disc 6:

20. Womb Raider
When Phoebe's baby shows signs of demonic powers, The Seer plots to steal the baby and gain the power bestowed upon the heir of The Source.

My Thoughts:
This was a good... but not great episode. Was interesting to see how strong the fetus was. I do think it was a pretty good ending to the baby arc. But I don't know... I think I was just expecting a little more from it.

21. Witch Way Now?
As a reward for vanquishing The Source of All Evil, the Angel of Destiny offers the sisters a chance to relinquish their powers and lead normal lives.

My Thoughts:
This was an OK season finale... but far from the best. Actually it didn't even feel like a season finale while watching it. I mean it was nice to see the season end on a good note. Not to mention one hell of a surprise at the very end. But I think it was a little on the weak side for a season finale.

Over-All Season 4 Thoughts:
'
This is not one of the best seasons for Charmed. But it is better then I remember it being. I remember when I watched this series for the very first time I thought this was the end of the show... what with no more Prue. But they really pulled it off. They kept the show pretty much as good as it ever was. As it went on possibly even better. It is just a shame that season 4 didn't have any extras.
