Movie Reviews

A decent release. A widescreen Blu-ray treatment would be ni

"These films are enjoyable for what they are. Each film is appropriate for children and all three of these movies are enjoyable to watch for both young and old. I remember growing up watching the Pokemon series on KidsWB. This was always one of my favorite series to watch and the films are a nice addition to the series. They even work as decent ends to each season. As a 19 year old male, I'm positive there are others out there who grew up watching Pokemon who will still enjoy this release for nostalgic reasons and also because the films are not really that bad at all. Sure, these movies are definitely not examples of high art... but are they entertaining? That is a matter of opinion, of course, but I believe these to be fine examples of anime films that work well based upon the material presented in the original series - In other words, Yes -- these are entertaining. As long as your a Pokemon fan and do not have the original DVD releases this is a worthwhile addition to your DVD collection. This release offers nothing new from the old DVD releases aside from the obvious: being housed in a smaller package that consists of a regular DVD case (which is much preferred over the annoying 'snapper' cases the original DVD's were packaged in). The first film is presented on Disc 1 in an identical pressing. The second disc is a flipper with the second movie on Side A and the third film on Side B. I wish these were presented in Widescreen but unfortunately the films are presented in a modified aspect ratio that is different from the theatrical exhibition: in other words -- full frame (and not as the film-makers intended). This is to be expected as this is nothing more than a modest rehash of the old releases. Hopefully sometime in the future Warner Bros. can revisit these films to give them the Widescreen treatment they deserve and perhaps even a nice Blu-ray release can coincide (with lossless high definition audio to boot!). One advantage the DVD releases have over the VHS versions is Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound (information that I thought might be useful to some of you making the jump to owning these on DVD for the first time)."
Loving it!

"As a Pokemon fan since childhood, I own all three of these movies on VHS tape but had never gotten around to buying them on DVD until now. Although, as the previous review mentioned, this set makes no improvements to the movies original VHS/DVD formatting (widescreen, HD, etc.), it is a great way to update (or start) your collection at a cheaper price than buying all three individually. Since I bought them I have been spending my summer reliving all my childhood Pokemon memories (the VHS player broke several years ago). I am very happy that I bought this product."
