4.0 out of 5 stars Dumbo: A Sugary Tale, June 12 2002
Dumbo
running time 60 minutes
reviewed by Sera Elisabeth
Dumbo is Walt Disney's third film. This sweet and sugary tale of a baby elephant with awfully big ears who could fly was a sensational hit. It was also the very first animated feature to have the background painted in watercolor. So, sweet this movie is, it drifts off into a childish whimsy the young can truly enjoy. There is not much plot, but adults will shed a tear when Dumbo's caged mother takes out her trunk through the window, to rock her sweet baby. A very tender moment in Disney history that has been and will be appreciated in years to come.

Pinocchio
Reviewed by Sera Elisabeth
Walt Disney's second installment in feature animation was a beautiful tale of a wooden boy whose father wanted him to become real. Set on an adventure with his conscience Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio soon realizes that the road less traveled becomes the road that leads him home, human and into the arms of his father.
Sweeping fantasy and good morals take this movie in a startling adventure into Pleasure Island, and down the sea below with Monstro the Whale. Again, this movie has everything to offer the young and young at heart. I give this movie
***** 5 STARS !

5.0 out of 5 stars THE SUCCESS OF OZ, May 13 2002
This review is from: The Wizard of Oz (DVD)
102 years ago, The Wizard of Oz was first part of American Literature, written by the talented Lyman Frank Baum. Nearly 40 years later this timely fairytale was altered onto the big screen under Metro Goldwyn Meyer for a 1939 release, Starring Judy Garland as Dorothy who skips down the yellow road paved of brick that will lead Dorothy to her destiny, Frank Morgan, the founding father of the Screen Actor's Guild,as Oz, Ray Bolger the Scarecrow, Jack Haley as the Tin Man, and Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion.
The Wizard of Oz, by 1939's standard was first considered a B rated success, mostly because of Gone With The Wind's strong push of Hollywood style. Nevertheless, In 1956, along came television with the very FIRST movie picked up for a national televised premiere was ultimately, The Wizard of Oz. Little by little, year by year, this became a story not only for the small child but, the child in all of us; as the beginning of the 1939 movie does quote.
Generations after the 1956 premiere, fell in love with its ingenuity. Now in the year of 2002 The Wizard of OZ has become the most watched and beloved film ever made. You know, it's amazing how you can a watch a bad movie, and one tine is enough ! But, in the case of the Wizard of Oz, One hundred times may NOT be enough !
