POKEMON: JURACHI  WISHMAKER

6/17/04

WELL WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THE POKEMON FRANCHISE BESIDES THAT IT HAS ENDURED THE TIDES OF CHANGE AND POPULARITY.  I JUST WISH THE SAME WAS TRUE ABOUT JURACHI THE WISHMAKER, OH WAIT I ENDURED WATCHING IT!  LOOK THE POKEMON MOVIES WERE GOING IN A GOOD DIRECTION WITH EACH MOVIE ACTUALLY GETTING BETTER STORY LINES AND CAPTIVATING THE OLDER VIEWER THAT IS UNTIL NOW.  THE STORY STARTS OFF WITH OUR HERO'S (ASH, BROCK, MAE, MAX, AND PIKACHU) ATTENDING THE FESTIVAL OF THE MILLENIUM COMET.  THEY ATTEND A MAGIC SHOW WITH POKEMON IN WHICH MAX STARTS HEARING JURACHI TALK TO HIM TELEPATHICALLY.  WELL IT TURNS OUT THE MAGICIAN, BUTLER, WAS ACTUALLY AN EVIL SCIENTIST FOR TEAM MAGMA OF WHOM IS BENT ON USING JURACHI'S POWER TO REVIVE AN ANCIENT POKEMON SO HE CAN GET REVENGE ON THE ORGANIZATION THAT THREW HIM OUT ON HIS KEISTER.  AT THE END, BUTLER REALIZES HIS INTENTIONS COULD DESTROY THE WORLD AND JOINS FORCES WITH OUR HERO'S TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT.  SOUNDS GREAT RIGHT?  WRONG, THE PLOT IS SO SLOW THAT MY NINE YEAR OLD SON IS READY FOR COLLEGE.  YES I AM EXAGGERATING BUT YOU GET THE POINT.  THE BRIGHT SPOT ON THIS DVD IS THE POKEMON SHORT "GOTTA DANCE".  IN FACT IT HAS GOT TO BE THE FUNNIEST SHORT TO DATE.  THE SHORT HAS MEOWTH IN CHARGE OF ENTERTAINMENT FOR WHEN GIOVONI VISITS THE BASE THAT JESSE AND JAMES HAVE CONSTRUCTED.  MEOWTH WITH HIS GRAND PLANS  OF BECOMING THE BOSSES' NUMBER 1 FELINE COMPANION, CONSTRUCTED A POKE-BATON THAT WHEN ACTIVATED MAKES POKEMON DANCE.  WELL LETS JUST SAY THAT I COULDN'T STOP LAUGHING AT ALL THE SLAP STICK HUMOR.  ALL IN ALL THE DVD IS RENT ONLY, I CAN THINK OF OTHER WAYS TO SPEND $20, LIKE THROWING IT WAY.  WE GIVE THIS DVD 1 OUT OF 5.  

SAVE YOUR MONEY.  


DOGGY POO:  DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

5/3/04

USUALLY TITLES ARE DECEPTIVE OR EXTREME TO GRAB THE ATTENTION OF A POTENTIAL VIEWER, BUT DOGGY POO IS STRAIGHT FORWARD.  YOU GUESSED IT, ITS A MOVIE THAT'S MAIN CHARACTER IS DOG POOP.  NOW BEFORE YOU GET ALL BENT OUT OF SHAPE BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GRASP THE THOUGHT OF A CHILDRENS SHOW MAIN CHARACTER BEING A PIECE OF POOP OR YOU ARE HAVING THOUGHTS OF MR. HANKEYS YOUNGER YEARS, FORGET ALL THAT.  THIS KOREAN CLAYMATION FILM DELIVERS A MESSAGE THAT SOMETIMES EVEN THE MOST THOUGHTFUL OF PEOPLE FORGET, THAT EVERYONE HAS A PURPOSE IN LIFE AND IS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE.  THE MOVIE OPENS UP WITH A FRESHLY DEPOSITED POO WAKING UP TO THE WORLD.  EVERYTHING FROM BIRDS TO CHICKENS FIND THE POO DISGUSTING AND NOT WORTH THEIR TIME.  BUT A CONVERSATION WITH A LUMP OF DIRT GIVES DOGGY POO HOPE IN HIS EXISTENCE, TIL ONE DAY HE MEETS A DANDELION WHICH ASKS FOR HIS HELP TO BECOME A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER.  THE STORY IS WONDERFUL FOR SMALL CHILDREN IF YOU CAN GET PAST THE MAIN CHARACTER BEING POOP.  WE ONLY FOUND TO DOWNFALLS TO THIS STORY ONE OF COURSE THE MAIN CHARACTER BEING A PEICE OF POOP AND THE OTHER THE CLAY ANIMATION.  YOU SEE THE CLAY ANIMATION WAS ALONG THE LINES OF GUMBY BACK IN THE DAY, IT JUST WASN'T UP TO ARE STANDARDS WITH SHOWS LIKE "WALLACE AND GROMMITT" AND THE MOVIE "CHICKEN RUN" BEING OUT THERE TO VIEW.  WELL WITH THAT BEING SAID THE MOVIE WAS STILL A GOOD STORY.  WE GIVE DOGGY POO 3 OUT 5 STARS.
