5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a movie, but an experience of epic proportions!, September 5, 2002
This review is from: Brotherhood of the Wolf (DVD)
The Brotherhood of the Wolf is possibly one of THE most excellent films to ever be created. Everything about this film is on point. The cinematography, the acting, the writing, the plotting, special effects, fight choreography, everything about this film is incredible! the way this film seems to not only blend in the various film genres, but also seems to go BEYOND those genres is truly amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent classic Hartnell adventure, September 4, 2002
This video was actually the first William Hartnell tape that I managed to get my hands on when I started collecting the Doctor Who videos, I waited a long while before actually watching it, but it was definitely worth the wait. This awesome story, and somewhat reminiscent of The Planet of the Apes, in which the roles are reversed kind of thing, those who were once the servants become the masters, that sort of thing. Especially in the cliffhanger at the end of the second episode when the TARDIS crew arrive 700 years later and find that the statue is completed, but it has the face of a Monoid. That part reminds me of the twist ending they had at the end of both the original Planet of the Apes movie and Tim Burton's re-imagining, very effective, and very chilling. All in all, an excellent adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's something about your EYES., September 2, 2002
in Patrick Troughton's second adventure as the newly regenerated Doctor, he throws himself and his companions full tilt into this wonderfully comedic romp through a somewhat inaccurate point in history. the comedy and action more than make up for the inaccuracies in history, just look at the Romans or the Myth Makers.

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't find it Abominable at all. :), September 2, 2002
this adventure marks the first appearance of the robotic Yeti creatures, as well as a mysterious alien force known only as the Great Intelligence. I did find this adventure most enjoyable, despite certain inaccuracies that were made in regards to the Tibetan monks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of many great Doctor Who Epics, September 2, 2002
The Daleks, possibly one of the most evil, vile, and dangerous creatures to ever emerge in the world of science fiction. In their first appearance one might almost laugh at their appearance, until soon realizing just how deadly they truly are. In this incredible 13 part epic story (I include Mission to the Unknown as part of the whole story) the good Doctor (William Hartnell) once more does battle against his arch-enemies the Daleks, as he is chased once more through time and space, attempting to prevent the Daleks from completing activation of the Time Destructor, a terrible device which harnesses the very forces of time itself into a weapon. Although the visuals are currently missing, with the exception of two episodes, it is still very effective as an audio drama, with linking narration by Peter Purves. the performances are top notch, including William Hartnell as the Doctor, Peter Purves as Steven Taylor, Nicholas Courtney as Bret Vyon (the future Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart) and Kevin Stoney as Mavic Chen. in addition the wonderfully joyful Christmas episode 'Feast of Steven' is definitely a nice break from the dark and impending doom of the main story plot. this is definitely a must have for any Doctor Who fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest black comedy I've seen in a long time!, September 2, 2002
Upon learning of Robin William's decision to take on some more darker roles in future movies, I was definitely interested and intrigued by this career move... in watching 'Death to Smoochy' I knew he definitely did NOT make a mistake in being in this film. The film is not only a laugh out loud, almost nonstop laugh fest, but it also does an excellent job at poking fun and showing the darker side of children's television. and there is a great dichotomy in the characters of Rainbow Randolph and Sheldon Mopes (played respectfully by Robin Williams & Edward Norton). both characters represent two complete opposite ends of the spectrum in regards to light and darkness within us. Rainbow Randolph is a corrupt, selfish, greedy, manipulative degenerate person, while Sheldon Mopes is honest, kind, caring, and a sweet person, but even these qualities don't exactly make him perfect either. but regardless of their rivalry and all the other circumstances that threaten to destroy them both...this is one of the coolest and funniest films I've ever seen...

5.0 out of 5 stars Eh? Doctor Who? What's he talking about?, August 31, 2002
Nearly 40 years have passed since Doctor Who first made its debut on television, yet it still endures as one of THE classic science fiction programs ever to exist in television history, and although 8 actors have played the title character, this adventure started it all with William Hartnell as the original Doctor. Here is where two unsuspecting high school teachers follow a strangely brilliant young girl home, to a blue police telephone box, and meet her grandfather, a man known simply as The Doctor, stumble into his time machine, the TARDIS, and are thus yanked from their time period and their adventures begin. I must say that I have only fairly recently become a fan of this beloved program, and this adventure in particular is excellent as it shows how it all started. Although many companions have come and gone throughout the show's history, no one can deny the likeability of the original line-up of Ian, Barbara and Susan. if you wish to start your journey with the Doctor, An Unearthly Child is definitely the best way to start.
