Program Administrators Movie Reviews
What I like about this DVD is the great variety of shows included. Yes, some of the shows, like Dragnet, the Lone Ranger, Red Skelton, etc., are available on other DVDs, but they have also included some shows like Racket Squad, Mr. & Mrs. North, and Sea Hunt that are either rarely or never seen on video/DVD. I hadn't seen Sea Hunt since its syndication run in the 1960s. What a great show and, to the best of my knowledge, this is the only episode available anywhere on DVD (wish there were more episodes of Sea Hunt on DVD).
While this disk is more of a "potpourri" of different types of television shows from the 1950s, Falcon also offers three other DVDs, including ones with television Detectives, Westerns, and Comedies. If you are nostalgic for this great era in television, these DVDs are the way to go. Highly recommended!
It presents an interesting plot twist, yet, the art is no as appealing or as rich as in the other instalments (J and J again).
Altough it tells the story of what will happen to marionettes when women return to Terra 2, the stories aren't as well planned and almost fail to maintain the charismatic humor of the original Saber Marionette J.
Nonetheless, the battle scenes, altough few, are still as good as they were, even better. It was good to see something so important be taken into a better level. Really, kudoz.
The music and sound seems to improve, as the ending and opening themes are catchy and well tuned, the stories are always accompanied by a great musical score and the japanese voices are well done (don't go near the english ones...)
The only real disappointment was the lack of continuity. Not only is the story from J Again discontinued, but the cast seems to act a little out of character. Lime is a lot more childish almost to the point of annoyance, Otaru is depressive and insensitive sometimes and the saber dolls were playing secondary characters that could have been done without. Now, if most of the marionettes had supposedly matured by the end of J, why are they acting more childish and less smart? They really messed up this aspect
I'd only recommend buying this last part if you are curious about the real ending to SMJ and/or if you're a real fan of the series. I just hope the third installment of the SMJ to X series will have the bonus 26th episode, a favorite between fans.
I LOVE THIS SHOW.
J to X starts of great and never did drag, the animation was great, the story was super, but on the down side the show used a little to much cg graphics just like SMJ Again, and also the english voice acting is terrible, it not just terrible, it [stinks]!
Where hell did Bandai pick these guys from, a freaking homeless bum could give a better performace than these voice actor, so even if you hate reading subtitle, and listening to japanese (which I must say is a beautiful language, but not as beautiful as Korean. jk They're both great language) I must say turn the japanese audio on and read the subtitle, You'll wish that you had a gun next to you just listening to these so called "voice-actors" On a personal note, I am really fond of the two Imperial Sabers, Baiko and Tamasaburo, and they seem to display more emotions, and more weaponary than the original.
this series will not dissapoint
The Steve Francis part is sick. I must have watched it 37 times. The music is perfect and Steve goes unconscious for about 27 points, including several explosive dunks over multi defenders, bouncing the ball off a defender's head, perfect form jumpshots, behind the back dribbling infront of defender. I'm not sure when this clip was taken but it was in a Pro City leage game. The clip is great, and steve is one of the best fundamental, unconsciously ballin' players of our time. I cannot watch this clip over enough times.
The James White dunk section is also pretty good.
A funny section on how to play pickup ball for a white dude. This part was pretty funny, and white people should find it helpful. They are rules you should know by now, but if you don't there they are.
The great white lie part was kinda lame. I was disappointed in this section. I couldnt tell if they were goofin' on them or if they really thought those were some tight moves. A few were tight, but some were very lame.
Everyone criticizing this video because it doesnt have rafer alston is dumb. THere is a section on him but it was pretty much a done in a sad light, since in reality it is pretty sad, and rafer has gotten too much hype already and not lived up to it. Sure he was a great ball handler, but there is more to basketball than that. This video is centered around outrageous dunkers, playmakers, and players who Ball Above All. Competitors. Scorers. Atheletes.
Not some goofy little and-1-mix tape.
Also the book and video are geared towards women who have never had an organism. If you are even slightly orgasmic these will not be of any value to you.
