Anastasia (1997) Review


Good
20th Century Fox tried to break the Disney stranglehold on kiddie animation with a retelling of the tragic story of Anastasia, the lost daughter of the Russian czar who some believed survived the family's assassination. I'm not sure there was this much singing in Mother Russia, but the film isn't overly wretched. Still, the Disney formula is aped to perfection here, even spawning a solo career for singing bat Bartok, in Bartok the Magnificent. Protect your children.

The Secret Of NIMH Review


Very Good
Never mind the G rating, this is scary stuff which sent my little one fleeing to another room inside of 10 minutes. Between the cat attacks and murderous rats, there's a lot of terror in The Secret of NIMH, but slightly older kids will likely thrill to the Harry Potter-like adventure here, which has a widowed mouse trying to figure out how to move her cinder block house and three children to safety before the plowing begins and rips them all to shreds. So, of course, she turns to the genetically enhanced rats down the way, who overcome their own obstacles before coming to a magical, sword-slinging rescue. Quite the finale.

Titan A.E. Review


Weak
Good Will Hunting goes to space in Titan A.E., an ill-conceived and overambitious animation blowout (courtesy of 20th Century Fox) that makes recent Disney fare look like thinking men's movies.

Matt Damon's voice stars as Cale, an eager-beaver twentysomething in the year 3028 who would be just like any other next-millennium Gen X-er if not for one thing: A race of evil beings called the Drej -- made of pure energy, natch -- have blown up the earth.
