Movie Reviews

Super Cozy!
E. Lorge | Earth Human | 07/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When the below reviewer says its "not great animation", what I think she means is it's not DIGITAL animation. This series is less in the tradition of "Cars" and "Antz" and more like "Redwall" or the old "Sleepy Hollow" movie that I grew up with.

The stories themselves are interesting little parables that even adults can appreciate. In fact, it has given me a whole new respect for Andersen and the seemingly simplistic art of the fairy tale.

These are great little DVDs to put in on a cozy, rainy day and watch with your kids!"
Impressive hand-drawn animation and great story telling
Edward Pogi | Somewhere Out There | 08/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let's start with the:

Pros: Beautiful animation, solid story-telling in the spirit of HC Andersen, impressive opening scenes and narration, good box quality, colorful 6-page episode list and nine (9) colorful discs.

Cons: Price... $10 more and this will reach a hundred dollars. Outer episode guide is in paper and placed in the back of the box making it subject to easy tearing when the box gets moved around. Discs are placed in ordinary plastic CD jackets instead of thinkpaks (slimpacks) and this is a $90 item! :\

So what does this DVD box set offer? A lot in terms of telling great and classical fairytales. The animation is colorful enough to get the attention of kids. They are rich and vibrant which reminded me of backgrounds made by Hayao Miyazaki ("Spirited Away"). The voice-overs are perfect and well-suited for the characters portayed. Most of all, they end up with a good morale story.

All in all, this is a great DVD set and worth getting. Your kids will defintely have a great time watching this set."
Happy with it.

"I just received this set of DVD. I gave only 4 stars because when I try to watch on my laptop, the picture makes me giddy. But when I switch it to watch on TV, the picture is good. The story are in british english. I wish they do have subtitle for this DVD.

My 2 and 4 yr old girls love it
