Star Trek - The Original Crew Movie Collection (Sp&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ William Shatner
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 solid DTV sequel..., June 21 2004
"Timecop" is the Van Damme movie that almost everyone has seen two minutes of. Now we have "Timecop: The Berlin Decision," a sequel-in-name-only starring Jason Scott Lee from "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story." Lee chases bad guy Thomas Ian Griffith through time as the two try desparately to kill one-another. There is a lot of time travel in the 80 minutes this film provides, but not much plot. The action and fight scenes are very well done and the special effects are sure to please, but the viewer is left with very little after this experience. Maybe if the writers would've shelled out a good story, the film may be even more enjoyable.

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. They're Brooklyn plumbers who stumble upon a parallel universe containing the evolved versions of dinosaurs. The leader of this new dimension is Koopa, played with charisma by Dennis Hopper. 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
