4.0 out of 5 stars Phantom Menace, a great movie with flaws, April 5, 2000
Yes, the movie did have its flaws. The acting was less than great, and the dialogue was poor at times. However, the images were incredible, and more than make up for the flaws. Yes, the movie was made for children to watch, but that's not a bad thing, and there is more than enough excitement for the adults out there.
I watched it again last night and enjoyed it all the more. If you're one of the few who didn't see it at the theater, watch, especially with your kids if you have them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paul's Best Work in Years, March 20, 2000
This review is from: Flaming Pie (Audio CD)
In this album, recorded shortly after Paul finished work on the Beatles' Anthology albums, we see Paul's creative energies reborn. These songs are mostly simple pop/rock songs that tie back to the best stuff he did with John. We also see Paul looking back on a life that is full of many great memories. (Linda's illness may have motivated this). In "The Songs We Were Singing" the lyrics paint a picture of Paul hanging out with friends (John, Rings, George, or maybe later) and just enjoying a good time discussing all those things that seem so frightully important at that time. "Flaming Pie" is a 2 minute rock song that is a great example of Beatles work, and probably would have been included on a Beatles album in the 60's (as would "Calico Skies")The final song "Great Day" is a wonderful little duet between Paul and Linda. All the more poignant is "Little Willow" a song wrote for the children of a family friend who died. It takes on added meaning with Linda's passing.
I loved this album, I enjoyed the work from Steve Miller, Ringo, and Jeff Lynne. If you enjoy Paul McCartney, the Beatles, or just good pop/rock music, this is a must have for your collection
