The only thing wrong was the last 2 mini-movies!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Here is an individual review of each movie:Pokemon: The First Movie (5 Stars)
This was the first movie that was released theatrically in the U.S., that contained the first mini-movie called Pikachu's Vacation. The Pikachu's Vacation short was downright hilarious and cute! The movie itself entitled "Mewtwo Strikes Back" is a darker descent into the world of Pokemon! An awesome movie overall. The DVD is superior to the video for these reasons, an informative audio commentary with the director and producer, the M2M "Don't Say You Love Me" music video, sneak peek for Pokemon 2000, two deleted scenes "Origin of Mewtwo" (which can be seen on the video following the minimovie) and "Ash's Journey" (which if you own the soundtrack album and put it in your computer and watched the bonus footage, this is what was on there. This is sort of an overview for the parents who don't understand Pokemon to start understanding who the characters are.) The bad thing about this DVD is that the movie is presented in 1.33:1 Full-Frame aspect ratio! The plus is that whenever Mewtwo talks to the humans his voice is radiated in perfect 5.1 audio, and when he talks to himself it's in clear stereo!Pokemon 2000 (4 Stars)
Slightly less good due to the lack of humor and excitement in the minimovie "Pikachu's Rescue Adventure"! Overall the movie (entitled) "The Power of One", is the A point of the movie! The movie is dark and adventurous with awesome characters and CGI! The DVD is terrible though, first of all because this movie is presented in full-frame also, and there are no cool features except for the sneak peek at Pokemon 3! Pretty good, best if bought on VHS though! Pokemon 3: The Movie (3 Stars)
This by far is one of the least entertaining mostly due to the stupidity and awful humor that was poorly constructed in the minimovie called "Pikachu and Pichu"! The movie called "Entei: Spell of the Unown" is spectacular! This is the second best movie out of the entire series so far! This redeems the time wasted by "P&P" before the movie. If you are into sentemental action-adventure then this is for you! The DVD is great too, it doesn't have great features but there still entertaining, Audio Commentary with the director (the worst commentary...EVER!), making of the "Know The Unknown" Music video, Johto Pokerap music video, and the Japanese language sneak peek trailer of Pokemon 4 (that will be released by Miramax, not Warner Bros. who made the first three, hopefully in late 2002)! The only bad thing about the DVD is the lack of widescreen presentation (YET AGAIN!!). If you have seen all 3 movies then there is no doubt on why you should not already have bought this set! BUY THEM NOW! I can't wait until Miramax releases the next 2 movies in which the first (Pokemon 4) will hopefully be released in 2002!"
My child loved these movies.

"My 4 year old LOVES Pokemon, in a big way. These movies had a colorful variety of all the Pokemon. And they presented a good moral at the end of each movie. I thoroughly enjoyed these movies with my child, and would recommend it to any child that likes to see new creatures, or Pokemon :)"
Making it easy to catch 'em all

"Although we own all the video games and tons of cards, and watch the TV show, I was trying to avoid buying the DVD movies. Then came the day when we just had to have them. And not just some of them, of course, but all eight. I won't talk about the content itself, because the quality is somewhat uneven, but if you have to have them, and you know you do, this three pack is a little easier, and a little cheaper, than getting them separately."
