  • . Rating: 4.2/10 "How is it possible that actors as expert as Close and Depardieu can wind up together in a mostly brainless big-budget stinker?" --, "As good as [Close] is, she's simply Cruella revisited." --, "It's hard to imagine kids paying more than lukewarm attention to this drone of a movie." --, "Kevin Lima directs with as heavy a hand as Stephen Herek did the last time around -- and with a script even more contrived." --, "A film without mirth or magic." --, "The whole movie is overbright, overloud, antic, telling us the characters and animals are endearing rather than allowing them to reveal themselves as such." --, "Spirited entertainment for all but the youngest members of the group (Oddball faces peril that will haunt little ones)." --, "This thing yips and whimpers like an indolent, egregiously cute Chihuahua." --, "In a season like this, what's one dog more or less?" --, "Amiable, undemanding family holiday entertainment." --, ( ) "This past summer's claymation hit, Chicken Run , has clearly stolen, and bettered, this film's bark and bite." --, ( 1-35 ) of 85 , sorted by last name z-a Page > | Latest Posts on the 102 Dalmatians Forum by 1 posts 3/8/01 by 1 posts 1/11/01 by 1 posts 1/2/01 by 1 posts 12/11/00 by 1 posts 12/10/00 Access Reviews and Articles for 102 Dalmatians by ..

    Movie Forums: Peter Pan
  • . Unfortunately, the magic that keeps Peter eternally young also keeps him from having these more mature feelings

    Filmtracks: Peter Pan
  • . Pooling their resources and presenting a cast without any big name stars, Columbia and Universal are counting on the special effects magic and a return to the authenticity of original story to propel the film during a late 2003 season that is largely devoid of any other spectacular children's films
  • . The story of Peter Pan is well known for its broad strokes of fantasy and adventure, offering any composer a magical opportunity to soar over the speakers of the big screen
  • . If you were looking for brassy statements of elegance heard from the opening prologue of Hook , then you'll be disappointed, because Howard has taken a more low-key approach to his magic
  • . The score tingles with pleasant rhythms and string themes, but stops short of exploding with the kind of sustained magic that we heard in his previous scores in the genre

    Future Movies: Peter Pan
  • . After giving the kids a lesson in flying (with the aid of some fairy dust, naturally), Pan whisks the trio off to the magical world of Neverland where they meet the ragbag crew of The Lost Boys and battle against the dastardly pirate Captain Hook
  • . The key plot points - the clock-ticking croc, the visit to the Mermaids, the Indian ceremony - are hurried through with an almost reckless unenthusiasm, a far cry from the magical enchantment of JM Barrie's original play
  • . Some of the best kid's movies of the 80s managed to create a real sense of magic and wonder combined with genuine wit, as seen in films like Labyrinth or The Never-ending Story

    Cat People
  • . Things took a more disturbing turn when Cat People ’s title hit the screen, "greeted with whoops of derision and louder meows.” Fortunately, the film thereafter worked its dark magic upon the audience and the latter, having become intrigued by the credible story and sympathetic characters, responded well to the film’s terror highlights, emitting gasps and screams in all the appropriate places


    'Chronicles of Narnia'

  • . The story of Narnia revolves around the Pevensie siblings -- Lucy, Susan, Edmund and Peter -- who go through a magic wardrobe and enter the world of Narnia, a once peaceful land of talking beasts, dwarfs and giants that has since become frozen by the evil White Witch
  • . I hope to bring to the screen a movie that is as real to the audience as Narnia was to me as a child." Lewis launched the series in 1950 with "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and followed it up with the prequel "The Magician's Nephew" and the sequels "The Horse and His Boy, " "Prince Caspian, " "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, " "The Silver Chair" and "The Last Battle."
