Alice In Wonderland Blu-Ray

“Alice In Wonderland” is another collaboration between Disney and director Tim Burton.  Burton has taken the familiar “Alice” story, updated it, and made Alice 19 years old, on the verge of womanhood in Victorian England.  References to Alice’s first visit are everywhere in the film, from the opening sequence, to references by the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp)and others.  Some characters even insist that this Alice is the wrong Alice.

Strange New World

“Strange New World” borrows elements from Gene Roddenberry’s two unsuccessful attempts at a series following “Star Trek” , “Genesis II” and “Planet Earth” and  paints a less than optimistic future of our planet; the exact opposite of “Star Trek”.  In this disc, John Saxon(he was also in Planet Earth) heads a team of scientists who have been in suspended animation in orbit above the Earth when a shower of meteors wipes out civilization as we know it.  When they awake , they return to Earth and try to find their headquarters, exploring the planet in a rover and running into various pockets of cultures that have evolved from the ruins of Earth.  That’s the scenario for this failed pilot and two episodes are included on this dvd from Warner Archive.   Continue reading

Avatar Blu-Ray

What can be said that already hasn’t been said ?  Well, I have a few thoughts and observations about James Cameron’s zillion dollar film.

The disc, even though it comes with a dvd copy, is totally bare bones; no extras at all, nada, zip, nothing.  Gee, was this planned?   Continue reading
