Take a break from the tradition fairytale, and come to the 1920s Big Easy, where the gumbo is hot, and the jazz is even hotter than a bottle of Tabasco sauce. The Princess and The Frog takes us from the antebellum mansions of New Orleans to the bayou which is home to trumpet-playing gators and a huge family of Cajun fireflies, but first we need to find out why Tiana, our heroine, is such a workaholic, and how she got caught up in a nasty bit of voodoo magic cast by the no-good Dr. Facilier, when that spell was only meant for Prince Naveen.

One of the most wonderful Christmas special videos ever made for music. It will warm your heart and make you cry it is that touching and beautiful to watch and listen to. It doesn’t matter if you are Christian, Muslim, Pagan, Jewish, Buddhist, Shinto or whatever – You WILL love this film and want to watch it again and again. I don’t care how much you say you don’t cry at the sentimental stuff you will cry watching this one. It had me in tears within the first 5 minutes of the video.
It is amazing how TSO, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, weaves their music into a story. Anyone who has listened to their album Christmas Eve and Other Stories will know exactly what I mean about a story. The Ghosts Of Christmas Eve uses music from their first 2 Christmas albums and tells a tale about a run away that is down on her luck and has no place to go. She wants to go home but is afraid of what her parents might say or do. She finds an old abandoned theater and crawls into it to get out of the cold. This is where the real story starts to take place. Read more...(355 words, 8 images, estimated 1:25 mins reading time)
Just got done watching The Yellow Submarine by the Beatles. It is one heck of a trip and actually quite well done when you consider that there was no computer graphics or animation when the movie was made. I remember watching the film when I was a child on a little black and white TV in the early 70’s or late 60’s (yes I am that old) and seeing it in color for the first time was a treat.
All the songs have been remastered with DTS and full surround sound and it was great, but don’t let the chair or sofa eat you. This film is trippy and you can definitely see where all the early children’s television got their ideas. If the room is warm and you don’t have enough water you will fall a sleep with all those swirling colors and mood music going on.
This is a definite must see for anyone that is a Beatles fan. Even the transvestite blue meanies were a treat. Read more...(170 words, 1 image, estimated 41 secs reading time)
