Thoughts on the events of 9-11-01

reviews
Spirited Away (2002)
A beautifully produced nightmare.    01/26/03.
Porco Rosso
This one I understand. It's a "film like that".    01/26/03.
Spider-Man (2002)
With great box-office comes great responsibility.    05/15/02.
Head (1968)
Somehow I don’t think that thirty years from now we’ll still be talking about n’Sync.    01/15/01.
Fantasia 2000
Just when you’re thinking the new Fantasia is going to be stiff, ponderous and lifeless, along comes Rhapsody in Blue.    01/15/00.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
You have to marvel at the chutzpah of Ron Howard, who apparently feels that the Seuss original is in need of repair.    01/15/01.
Tarzan (1999) vs Tarzan (1914)
[Jane's] finest moment is in book eight, Tarzan the Terrible, in which, abandoned alone, nearly naked and weaponless in prehistoric Pal-ul-don, she actually constructs a shelter, makes a spear and kills her own food.    05/15/99.
The Prince of Egypt
Any film that gets good reviews from both Rolling Stone and Focus on the Family is worth seeing just for the novelty of it.     01/01/99.
