I was thrilled when I found this box set containing the first six "Star Trek" films in their two-disc collector's editions. I had to get it. Let's take a look shall we?
"Star Trek: The Motion Picture" Rating: 3.5/5
This is the long-awaited director's cut which actually subtracts about 12 minutes and adds a few necessary special effects. The film isn't as boring as it used to be and the focus is now more on the story than the special effects. The second disc is pretty good as well with three interesting documentaries and a load of deleted scenes.
"Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan" Rating: 5/5
This timeless sci-fi classic is now in beautiful widescreen with all the action… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun kids movie..., June 21 2004
"Super Mario Bros." may have very little to do with the video game of the same name, but it is a lot of fun. Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo play Mario and Luigi respectively.

Koopa is in search of a meteorite piece that will merge the two dimensions and allow him to rule the Earth. This is an enjoyable film for the most part, though it has its disappointments, the biggest being that it's almost nothing like the game. But it contains quite a few laughs and good moments that should be a pleasure… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste-of-time sequel..., June 21 2004
I'm a pretty hardcore fan of "Starship Troopers." I've read the book twice, seen the first film a dozen times, and watched the cartoon series. Now I've seen "Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation" and I must say that I was more than disappointed. The film stinks for many reasons, the biggest being its horrendously low budget. Had the filmmakers had more money, they definitely would've made a better film. But instead we're stuck with this lame, "trapped in an abandoned building" monster fest instead of the senseless killing and violence the original Paul Verhoeven film displayed. It's very obvious this film was very low-budgeted, which sounds like a… Read more
