4.0 out of 5 stars Way Better Than Barney August 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I'm a mom. I enjoy the warmth and humor shared between the Pokemon characters, and I admire the cartoon makers for their ingenuity. Most of all, I appreciate the values of friendship, kindness and responsibility that the Pokemon stories teach. There are no really bad guys in Pokemon movies-- just people or beings who aren't thinking clearly. And there are no hard feelings in the end. Everyone comes to an understanding. In this movie, little Molly has been motherless. Then she loses her father. So, feeling her world spinning out of control, she kidnaps a new mom and creates a powerful dad Pokemon and becomes extremely dominating. She is afraid of being hurt again, so she encapsulates her abode in spiky crystals. Excellent psychology! Yet in the end, she has to face reality and learn to cope as a lonely child, with the help of friends, of course. No fairy tale, happy-ever-after-with-the-prince endings. Pokemon movies give real lessons in living. I watched my child soaking in lessons about coping and also about having empathy for others.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spell of the Unown (Lord of The Crystal Tower) July 10, 2001
I wasn't sure if this movie would be anywhere near as good as Revelaton Lugia, the second Japanese Pokémon movie. However, when I saw the original Japanese version in January, I knew that it was! Something previously unheard of in a Pokémon film was developed: a plot! In this movie, the characters all have clear, simple objectives and we know from the start what this film is going to be about. This doesn't mean that the movie doesn't have its moments of suspense. This structure simply allows the movie to progress more 'naturally', without some of the restrictive assumptions that were made in the first two films, such as having Pikachu in every other frame!
The Spell of the Unown tells the story of the legendary Pokémon Entei and the Unown, and how one little girl's unhappiness almost brought about disaster. The movie starts with the Molly's (the little girl) father disappearing. We also learn later that her mother has disappeared also. Feeling alone and sad, Molly discovers the box of Unown letters that had been found where her father was last seen. These letters (which are symbols of the Unown) summon forth a hoard of Unown, that seem to sense her unhappiness and try to make her wishes come true. Thus, the legendary Pokémon Entei is summoned, whom Molly believes to be her father. The Unown form a crystal tower around the mansion where Molly lives, which slowly begins to extend into the surrounding countryside. Also, Molly asks Entei to find her a mother. Once kidnapped, Ash begins his efforts to rescue her from Molly's 'crystal tower'.
I won't spoil the ending for you, but the message behind this movie is that of the bond between parents and their children.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT MOVIE! March 31, 2001
You all will LOVE this Movie! I must say, WB did a good job with the "less advertising hype" this time around, as to avoid UNWANTED critic nagging. Anyway, the third Pokemon film is VERY cool! Let's have a look:
The OVA, "Pikachu And Pichu" is in short, another OVA with Pikachu and the other Pokemon who are Trained by Ash-tachi being left alone for a little while again. Only this time, Two Pichu Brother's moon and anger Pikachu, so he gets angry and chases after them. After he catches up to them, this silly OVA goes for a non-stop comedy spree! See it for yourself in a manner of Days...
The main Movie, "The Spell Of The Unown" is about a Professor named Professor Spencer Hale, whom has a 5 year old Daughter whom he raises by himself (his wife passed away)and cares about very much. As a Pokemon Researcher, hearing about ancient Pokemon Hieroglyphics is excting news for him! But when these Hieroglyphics turn out to be the Ancient and mysterious Pokemon, the Unown, they send him into another dimension. Alone and sad, with only the servants in her mansion and no family, his daughter Molly crys and Prays.(in the Japanese version, the DIRECT translation of Her Prayer is: "Please my sweet days, return to me!") She hopes Her Parents will return, but instead the Unown come, and THEY help Her! The Unown have the ability to turn Human thoughts and emotions into reality! Her whole mansion is turned into a Crystal Tower, and the Unown's Spell has the Legendary Fire Dog Pokemon Entei, be Her new Father, in place of Her missing one. In the meantime, the area, (in the Japanese version, it is called "Greenfield") Ash just finishes a tied up match with another Trainer, and is surprised to see His Mother and Prof. Oak there on vacation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually probably 4.5 Stars August 21, 2001
This movie is GREAT!! Lots of people say the minimovies are not that great, but this one was probably the best Mini Movie of all the Pokemon movies. YES!!! Finally, a movie with Furret (a long, ferret-like Pokemon evolved from Sentret) and the Baby Pokemon like Pichu and Magby. It is much better than Pikachu's Vacation and on the same level as the mini movie Pikachu's Rescue Adventure in Pokemon 2000.
The main film is about a young girl and the Unown Pokemon. Her father is an archaeologist trying to discover ancient Pokemon. He finds the Unown, only to mysteriously disappear. His co-workers bring the news back to his little girl, along with a bunch of tiles with the Unown on them. When Molly (the girl) begins to play with them, she somehow summons the Unown, who grant her wishes by bringing her Entei as a father and Ash's mom as a mother. For some reason they create a crystalline palace for Entei, Molly, and Ash's mom to live in, perhaps making sure that Entei and Ash's mom do not disappear like Molly's real parents did (at Molly's wishing). Ash sets out to find his mom.
Overall, a great movie to go with the Johto series. And to those who have seen the episode about Ash's fiery friend, Charizard, and the valley of the Charizards - Charizard returns!
Still, though, I don't understand why Entei is included and not Raikou and especially Suicune. When I found out that Entei would be in the film, and after I watched the first Johto episode, I began to mistakenly put the mysterious glowing blue Pokemon in the first Johto episode - Suicune - with Entei, as a kind of "introduction" to the movie. After all, it is natural to group legendary Pokemon - Mew and Celebi, Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno, Lugia and Ho-oh -- and the three quick Neo Pokemon, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune.
