Macross Plus - The Ultimate Edition [DVD]
Macross Plus - The Ultimate Edition [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Complete set: OVA and movie, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The box contains the Original Video Adaptation (OVA) and the movie. The OVA is the better of the two with more expose, action and suspense. A mixture of rivalry, music and hi-tech robotic manipulation.

2.0 out of 5 stars There are better adaptations, 20 July 2014
A clumsy adaptation of the fairy tale and a dull sequel. The voice acting is also dull, even though there are name in it that have made a mark in this field, but not in these two movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ignore Mr. Magoo, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A decent adaptation of the Aladdin story. The only nuisance in the film is UPA's star Mr. Magoo; within 5 minutes is short sightedness becomes boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good art house movie, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ocean Waves [DVD] (DVD)
The only TV special from Studio Ghibli can be lined up with their other films "Whisper of the Heart" and "Only Yesterday". It is a coming-of-age story of two high school students who at first had a kind of love-hate relationship.
The pacing of the film is a little slow, but with this kind of story quite right. One of the best animated stories I have seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just for kids, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Made with handpuppets this is an alternative format to do a Scooby-doo special. This show was based on the animated series "A Pup Called Scooby-Doo". The puppets had definitely a Muppets' look-and-feel.
The jokes were not that great, but kids would like them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete, 18 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The idea of the movie is good and the story had some good ideas, but having the voice cast already working on a earlier version makes the dialogue weak. The movement of the puppets is stiff at times.
The DVD had also a bad cut and some 10 minutes are missing, which is an essential part of the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Experimental animations for the fans, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Piotr Kamler is one of the few animators who did not make main stream animations. Born in Poland and working in France he created a number of experimental animations. On this DVD you will find his only feature length movie and 9 shorts.

<i>Chronopolis</i> is a summary of the techniques he has used in the shorts.
He focusses more on the change of state in an object than on movement. Therefore you may think there is no movement at all, but the changes are rapid and skilfully done. His works show what you can do within the world of animation, using stop motion techniques.

The music, like most of the shorts and the main movie, is experimental, futuristic sounded. Only in the short <i>Hiver</i> the music is from a classic by Vivaldi.

The shorts and movie on the DVD are accompanied with some short notes explaining the story. Also an interview with Piotr Kamler is on the disc.

Available languages: French, English and Polish.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst animations ever, 9 Sep 2013
Sorry but this "animation" is not worth the money.
First of all the story locations are wrong (Morocco and China in stead of Egypt and Bagdad). Then anachronisms like a genie with sports shoes. And a dialogue that uses 3 sentences to say something twice.
The animation itself is poor and amateuristic, The music is electronic and boring.
But see it for yourself if you do not believe me.


Alice [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Alice [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Kaori Shimizu

3.0 out of 5 stars Early CGI movie from Japan, 4 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With Pixar setting the standards, this is a nice CGI movie. The motion capture is at times sluggish, but it does not annoy as with attempts from the same period.

Winning a price to be the youngest person sent into space, Alice returns to earth 30 years in the future without aging. The world is ruled by Nero a tyrant. When she is told she is actually responsible for the current situation she want to do something to put it right, past or present.

This story is quite interesting, asking some questions to put any one for a dilemma. Worth a viewing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Classic kids show only for the kids, 4 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a TV hit since the 1950s this first (and last) movie appearance is a slow starter.
It takes about 15 minutes to get the story going. Before that you wonder what this movie is going about.
The Director's cut has the right length for this feature, which will keep the younger kids entertained.
