Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, a review by Critter


Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within



Anime Type: Movie

Year: 2001

Director: Sakaguchi, Hironobu
Plot: A planet is overrun by a mysterious group of creatures that infect and destroy all life on Earth. Only the determination of a single woman to find a cure will prevent the world from slowly being eaten away. Yet there are those from within who are impatient for results and will do anything to win this war.

My Thoughts:Aliens with a bit of Halo thrown in. The visual side and amazing design of this film, combined with a couple of nice action scenes made it an interesting watch, but nothing that will really stick with me for a long time.

My Rating

Dioses, a review by Danae Cassandra


Where We Are:  Peru
wikpedia

What We Watched:


Dioses (Gods)OverviewMy Thoughts:
Dioses is a great depiction of a dysfunctional family.  The overview is a bit misleading, as it implies Elisa trying to develop a relationship with Diego and Andrea, and that isn't the focus of the film at all.  Instead Diego and Andrea's primary relationships are with each other, while Elisa works at trying to fit in with the elite and develop her relationships with the other wives in her new social circle.  All of the main characters are very well drawn.  They're believable, sympathetic, flawed individuals and the actors really breathe life into them.  I was very impressed by all four of the main actors.  The director, meanwhile, focuses on the artificiality of their lives while contrasting them with brief glimpses of the genuine.  Great little film, quite well made, very much worth a watch if you have an interest in familial drama.

Bechtel Test:  Pass

Overall: 4/5

Charmed Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Disc 2:

5. Rewitched
Billie jeopardizes the Charmed Ones' new lives when she uses her powers and is caught by Homeland Security Agent Murphy, who suspects the Halliwell sisters are not dead.

My Thoughts:
This is a good episode... and now the entire world knows that the Halliwell sisters is alive. I am glad they ended all that disguise stuff... I never liked that part of the storyline to start with.

6. Kill Billie: Vol. 1
After Billie freezes in fear upon seeing her demon target, The Dogan, she opens up to The Charmed Ones about a Halloween long ago when a demon kidnapped her sister.

My Thoughts:
Really good episode... and another Halloween one. I keep forgetting about this Halloween episode... as it is really low key... Halloween is not the main focus of the storyline.

7. The Lost Picture Show
Paige's Whitlighter father, Sam, asks for her help when his charge, J.D., escapes from Vaklav, a demon who holds people hostage inside an evil photo collage.

My Thoughts:
This is a good...but standard episode. It was entertaining to see someone who has been in captivity since the '50s react to how much things has changed in 50 something years.

8. Battle of the Hexes
Phoebe and Billie discover a belt with superpowers that can turn the sexes against one another, while a power-hungry female demon uses Billie to achieve female domination.

My Thoughts:
This is just a plain fun episode. A bit silly... yes... but fun. This time it is Billie's turn to be turned into something. She gets turned into a super powered feminist that wants to destroy all men.
