    5-0 out of 5 stars Effects of dancing the danzón
    I would advise any cinefile with a human heart and an appreciation of true art to disregard all reviews (including this one), watch the movie, and judge for himself; lest he miss a unique and uniquely profound experience.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The eroticism made dance!
    This original work is an arresting feminist tale about a middle aged woman who rejoins with her forgotten sensuality , performing a ballroom dance known at the danzon. 4-0 out of 5 stars Danzon

    4-0 out of 5 stars Spanish vacation
    Having spent my recent vacation in Spain, and having attended a flamengo dance performance in Sevilla (without bringing a recorder)I was glad finding this DVD. The music is of course highly authentic and I much enjoyed it. After a while though it becomes "all of the same thing" and starts to bore you. I ejected this DVD after 45 minutes or so. Nevertheless I do recommend purchasing it especially if you want to have an immediately accessable " souvenir" of your visit to Spain.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rare opportunity to see the greats!
    While this performance is choreographed, hence not 100% authentic Canté Gitano, this is a very rare opportunity to see many of the great people of flamenco in one place. Carlos Saura has brought together people of the likes of Moraito Chico, Fernanda de Utrera, Manolo Sanlúcar, Manuel Agujetas, Paco del Gastor, Chocolate, Farruco, Farruquito, Tomasa la Macanita, Tomatito, etc, etc!
    4-0 out of 5 stars For flamenco lovers!
    Saura is always very good at stories about the world of dance and this one is a real must for those who admire flamenco. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, Erotic, & Endlessly Enjoyable
    I've learned to accept Almodovar as he has (ahem) matured & gotten serious. He is my favorite director so I support all his progressions. However! I'm deeply & irrevocably in love with the movie Kika, its colors, its actors, its characters, its music, its dialogue, its spell. Having watched it as much as I have, I've analyzed scenes & themes that otherwise would have escaped a one time viewing only.For example, notice how Ramon kneels in front of three women, for different purposes. First the model in the opening credits as he photographs her in bed. Next, he kneels in front of his dead mother as he opens her blouse to reveal her wound. Finally, in front of Kika as he makes love to her. The posters throughout the film hint at the action to take place in the future scenes. The dialogue is hilarious beyond belief & is not all translated or not translated acurately in the subtitles. If you are an Almodovar fan, you owe it to yourself to study Spanish & brush up on Castillian regionalisms to get the fully, mordant sinuousness of the dialogue. Kika is a black comedy & must be enjoyed as such, otherwise one would not laugh at the bizarre costumes, the multiple deaths, the rape as much-needed outlet for the retarded ex-porn star, the fickleness of love, the unfaitfulness throughout. Finally, I suspect that public taste or America's increasing discomfort with black comedy when its applied to rape, is delaying or preventing the rerelease of Kika on dvd. Its available in Brazil, but, of course not with English subtitles.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "In my own dirty and silent way, I loved you."
    "Kika" (Veronique Forque) is a bubbly beautician who has a poor history with men ("I always get the weirdos"). She lives with photographer Ramon who has a few kinky habits. Ramon has never forgotten his mother's suicide, and he has mixed feelings about his sinister step-father (Peter Coyote). Ramon's ex-girlfriend, Andrea Scarface (Victoria Abril) is the bizarre former psychologist-turned-tabloid-crime-TV-host who continues to show a morbid interest in Ramon's life. 5-0 out of 5 stars Very funny movie [5]
    This is a very funny movie.The characters are very rich.The actors and actresses does a great job.This is one fascinating movie appropriate for all ages.The interaction between all the characters are fantastic and very interesting.I highly recommended it. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Pedro Almodovar broke into the art-house mainstream with this wild,manic comedy about a gaggle of women and their various problems with men, be they married lovers, cheating husbands, fiancés, or terrorists. Almodovar's long-time leading lady, Carmen Maura, stars as an actress (famed for her laundry detergent commercial as the mother of a sloppy serial killer) who's just been dumped by her married lover. In the midst of trying to track him down for a face-to-face confrontation, she crosses paths with her lover's son (Antonio Banderas), his unbalanced wife (Julieta Serrano), and his new girlfriend (Kiti Manver). Adding more fuel to the fire is the hapless friend(Maria Barranco) who got involved with a Shiite terrorist and is now being hunted by the police. Almodovar, a master of farcical screwball comedy, manages to keep all these balls in the air in dizzy, hilarious style without once losing his momentum. Chock full of the director's over-the-top stylization, in terms of both story and sets, the film is a hilarious yet heartfelt marriage of kitsch and drama, verging on parody but never going entirely over the top. Maura is absolutely breathtaking as the unhinged lover, dispensing wise advice to others while trying to keep a semblance of sanity, and the supporting cast is quintessential Almodovar, including a brief but memorable turn by Banderas in what could have been a bland, go-nowhere role. Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in 1989. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Thanks to Angelika for showing this Almodovar Movie!
    I liked it and I miss this type of comedy.
    5-0 out of 5 stars What's up with Almodovar's DVD releases???
    This is a great movie....Why isn't it available on DVD in the US? There's a festival of Pedro's movies in the theaters around the country right now....but can you buy his DVDs...for most of them, NO! So, what's the story? Is there a re-release in the works? A boxed set for Chirstmas? Deluxe versions with commentary? Let us fans in on the secret! Thanks!~Tom Burkert

    4-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Comedy. Not quite up to Hepburn and Grant!
    `Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown'written and directed by Spaniard Pedro Almodovar has been described by some other reviewers as a `screwball comedy'. I generally agree with this assessment, except that compared to the greatest of this genre, for example, `Bringing Up Baby' with Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant, this effort is just a bit weak, primarily in the weaknesses of the male protagonists, who generally make short appearances, largely as a means to introduce the various stressed out women of the story, of which there are four or five, depending on how you count them.

    Elvia Duarte is just seven years old when she dies inexplicably in her father's arms. She is buried, but twelve years later, the cemetery is scheduled for renovation, and survivors of the dead are given a chance to retrieve the remains of their loved ones. Elvia's father Margarito (Frank Ramirez) exhumes Elvia's body, and it's then he discovers a miracle--her body is still perfect, soft and warm, and her hair and nails have continued to grow in the twelve years since her death. With this evidence of a miracle, Margarito cannot bear to re-bury his daughter, and soon local religious officials push him into seeking sainthood for his daughter. Seeking canonization for Elvia proves to be no simple task. Margarito takes his daughter's body from his native Columbia to Rome, and there he struggles withbureaucratic and ecclesiastical red tape.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Almodrama
    Like all great Almodovar movies, traditional gender roles are subverted in 'High Heels'. In fact for WASP suburbanite America, much of this plot would seem like an episode of Jerry Springer. Mother abandons daughter for singing career, daughter marries mother's former lover, mother continues to have affair with son-in-law while daughter becomes pregnant through a night of passion with a drag queen. How ironic it is then that Almodovar takes much of his influence for this movie from Douglas Sirk. A director noted for his melodramas about late 50's/early 60's family life amongst WASP suburanites in America. In fact this meshing of a traditional film genre with more modern edgy characters has even been given a name - an Almodrama -.5-0 out of 5 stars "I'm whatever you call me."
    The Spanish comedy film, "High Heels" directed by Pedro Almodovar is the story of a daughter, Rebecca (Victoria Abril) who reunites with her mother, the famous actress/singer Becky del Paramo (Marisa Paredes) after years of estrangement. The mother-daughter relationship is already severely strained due to Becky's single-minded devotion to her career--and a string of unfortunate relationships with men, but Rebecca's marriage to the shady and rather unpleasant Manuel, her former step-father, makes the difficult reunion almost intolerable.
    3-0 out of 5 stars BECKY DEL PARAMO E HIJA
    Although it�s not a materpiece, a bit slow in some parts, every Almodovar film is always a gift for the senses, and Tacones Lejanos "High Heels" is not the exception. Exceptional acting performances by Victoria Abril and Marisa Paredes, amazing cinematography, marvelous songs by Luz Casal ("Un a�o de Amor" and the heartbreaking "Piensa En Mi"), funny impersonators secenes (Miguel Bose aka Letal), and a must-seen for all the fans of the House Of Chanel with big exposure of clothes, jewelry, bags, glasses (eraly 90s collections). At last, i recommend this film for just having a big time with this funny Almodovar. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not Almodovar's Best
    While the acting (especially that of Marisa Paredes and Penelope Cruz) is superb, I don't care much for this story at the point I should care most, the climax!As usual for his movies, the plot is highly improbable, and while that rarely bothers me, I'm growing tired of Almodovar's over-the-top characters -- the ridiculously eccentric gays, lesbians and transexuals, who he then wants to portray as the most admirable characters in the movie.(An effort to "normalize," "humanize" them, perhaps?Whatever.Go preach from the pulpit, I say.)What worked in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (clearly a screwball comedy), doesn't work here, where the tone is more somber, and the plot somewhat more believable.
    4-0 out of 5 stars another touching grand opus from a great director who continues to get better
    almodovar glorifies women! remarkable in its refusal to patronize, and it has all the touches youve come to expect. i laughed, i cried ...
    3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but incoherent
    The problem with this foilm is it's not sure whether to bemelodrama or not. The plot is very dramatic and fanciful, (e.g. all the characters seem to form instant strong bonds with one another - a lot of people rave about how the film is a great study of female relationships, but the trouble for me is that too many of them are too out of the ordinary), yet the acting and directing is often very earthy, heartfelt and expressive in a very homely way. So I'm not too sure about what to make oof it really.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Las Hurdes is absolutely shocking
    I just watched Land Without Bread, or Las Hurdes, the only documentary directed by Luis Bunuel. The film is short, only 27 minutes, but it is long enough to portray enough human suffering to disgust. Images include a girl who lies in a road for two days and then dies. No one helps. The local schoolteacher instructs rows upon rows of malnourished children to respect the property of others. The schoolteacher feeds them bread, and makes them eat it immediately to keep their starving parents from taking it from them. They dip it into the only nearby source of water, a trickle running through a ditch where the pigs wallow. Bunuel illustrates with these sorts of images how these people are unbelievably pathetic, yet he clearly goes beyond this when he shows images of the developmentally challenged somehow teetering on the edge of life in a world where even the fittest can rarely overcome. "Morons and dwarves are plentiful..." says the narrator, but in some degree or other, all the people of the community are tragically moronic at every turn. They drink water from the ditch, yet somewhere within a reasonable distance is a river. They try to plant a crop, but the crop is washed away because they plant too near that river. They cook over an open fire indoors, but they don't make windows for themselves to let smoke out of their homes. They have no food for two months of the year, and yet mothers carry babies around in almost every shot. The viewer is left with the distinct impression that these people can't survive much longer, and there is certainly no optimism in sight when the film ends. How in the world can these people not plan a little better? The answer, I think, must lie in the intellectually suffocating nature of their hopelessness, the horrendous condition they feel swept away again and again along with every one of even the slightest currents of misfortune. Perhaps they've simply quit trying, it would seem.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking, but no masterpiece
    Recently, I purchased and viewed my first Luis Bunuel film, Los Olvidados (The Young and the Damned). The film is very good, including some incredibly poignant and unforgettable images. I then decided to purchase and view one of his earlier works, likewise considered a masterpiece of film, Un Chien Andalou/Land Without Bread. This is awful. A mish-mash of mush! Its only redeeming quality is its brevity. Once again, here we have a film that is given much more credit than it deserves, and I'm starting to think that the reason this often happens is that: a) the movies are old and therefore deserve respect for being "groundbreaking" b) they are "enigmatic," which is the critically vogue term for "confusing," which is often the polite term for "stupid," which when inserted into the VCRs of sheltered and myopic film critics can be enigmatically transformed into "intellectual." What's more appalling than this film is the praise that is heaped upon it. So the eyeball scene is groundbreaking. So what? It's not all that! I suppose lifting up the blanket--twice--to view the dead baby was likewise groundbreaking. Try disgraceful. Un Chien Andalou/Land Without Bread is a mongrelization of meaningless movie-making that belongs on some dusty shelf in some vault catalogued for historical reference only. You've been warned.
    5-0 out of 5 stars 'Land Without Bread' might be Bunuel's masterpiece
    'Un chien andalou' (1928) is the best-known film on this video and is a fascinating work in its own right, but the real masterpiece here is undoubtedly 'Land Without Bread' ('Las Hurdes'). As great as most of Bunuel's subsequent films would be, this 27-minute 1932 work arguably towers above them all. Calling it a documentary would not do justice to its unrivaled breadth: among other things, this film asks the questions 'what is a documentary?' and 'what is the role of the documentarist?', and this prevents us from using definitive, short-circuiting labels. In fact, no label could conceivably express this film's power. The controversy surrounding this work has three main sources: 1) some of the sequences have apparently been staged by Bunuel; 2) the impersonal narration seems in direct contrast to the pain and tragedy that unfolds on the screen; 3) so is Bunuel's choice of using Brahms's Fourth symphony as background music. For these reasons, cinephiles have been disagreeing for over 70 years about Bunuel's treatment of human and animal misery in this film. For me, his audacious technique creates a space - a window - between the viewer and the plight of the Hurdanos; it is this space that somehow transfigures their misery, rather than merely exploit it (as some have suggested). The film becomes a true initiation for the viewer: it provides a difficult, troubling but potentially life-changing experience. In the end, Bunuel's intentions do not matter as much as the impact his film can have on those who see it; and for this viewer, he has carved a moving, mysterious and ineffable work. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This Spanish fluff from 1992 won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, but its significance goes about as far as you can throw a flower petal. The story finds an elderly artist (Fernando Fernán Gómez) giving shelter to a deserter (Jorge Sanz) from the royalist army in provincial Spain, 1931. While on the premises, the young man naturally notes the beauty of all four of his host's daughters. Each takes her turn at seducing him, but this isn't late-night cable TV so much as it is a series of brief character sketches filled out by the way each woman takes charge. It's a clever idea made more clever by the fact that these sundry beauties are acting on the libertine impulses to which their free-thinking father subscribes in principle but has sheepishly abandoned for love. But the film, directed by Fernando Trueba, is rendered so lightly it could almost be mistaken for calendar art. Read more

    A joyous and sexy romantic comedy that manages to insert heavy doses of drama (sometimes quite melancholy) and social commentary into itself without losing its overall playful, upbeat vibe, "Belle Epoque" is a treasure and a fantastic introduction to the world of Spanish-language comedy.Set in the Spanish Civil War, a concsientious objector deserts the army and ups being offered refuge at the farm of a charming old intellectual, whose four daughters each end up taking a quick liking to the young - and perpetually flummoxed - desserter.Filled with a large, great cast of diverse characters - including the farm father's eclectic group of friends and his unusual, absent-on-tour musician wife, and spearheaded by Penelope Cruz's smashing performance as Luz - "Belle Epoque" taps into a rich range of material and does it all extremely well.An alltime winner.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not my idea of a romantic comedy
    Let me start by saying I only watched this film because it features Penelope Cruz in one of her earliest roles.I'm not a fan of non-horror European cinema, and maybe that's why my reaction to the film is significantly less enthusiastic than that of other reviewers.I found Belle Epoque somewhat disturbing, actually.Basically, this is the story of an army deserter who sleeps his way through an entire family of sisters - talk about your hand-me-downs - yet it turns out that his relationships aren't the weirdest ones on display.I will say this: when you put a man in a dress and play out a really weird cross-dressing romantic encounter with him, you're going to lose this viewer to a significant degree.This whole film is just really, really weird - almost deviant, even.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Franco Flaminco
    **Parts of Plot Revealed*
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great film set during the Spanish Civil War
    The great director Carlos Saura started with an outstanding cast and authentic detailed war time sets to create this superb film about republican vaudeville entertainers who take a wrong turn during their road show and wind up in the hands of fascist troops.Expecting to be executed, they are given a chance to entertain the fascists and obtain freedom by a stage struck Italian officer.But a chance encounter with Polish international brigade prisoners of war creates an emotional conflict for Carmen Maura.She must go through with an act that she finds distasteful and dreads the possibility that the POWs will be in the audience.The details of wartime Spain are excellent and the supporting cast is outstanding.The title of the film is taken from a charming Civil War song which also happens to be the name of the act, Carmela y Paulino.Saura has created a film that is both light and charming but with an underlying seriousness about this great tragic period of Spanish history.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Novios de la muerte.
    The Spanish Civil War seen as a vaudeville show for the brutal Franco troops, where the terrified performers try to save their skins and their conscience, knowing they can't have both. Carmen Maura shines (what else is new?) as the outspoken partner in a sing-and-dance couple, but Pajares clearly steals the show as herchaplinesque, panic-stricken husband.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gene Wilder IS Willy Wonka
    Wow this is one of the best family movies ever made.Though Johnny Depp was OK albeit more than a bit creepy in the 2005 movie, Gene Wilder will always be the only Willy Wonka for me.Sure the movie is a bit dated in regards to a 70's look and no modern special effects but does it really matter?This book is so true to Dahl's original children's book and the songs, characters and sets match up exactly to what I envision when I read it.I love Jack Albertson as Grandpa too.Even if you have seen the modern film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory you must treat yourself to watching this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't Beat Gene Wilder as Wonka
    He will ever be the image of Willie Wonka. No one else will ever come close.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Child's Paradise
    "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory" is one of those rare films that bridges the child-adult film gap.Persons of all ages can watch, eyes wide, and revel in Willy Wonka's eccentricities and Charlie's inate goodness and splendid luck.The film, more than 30 years old, hardly feels its age.Made in a time before computerized special effects, the relative cheese quotient only serves to make the film that much more charming.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Still great after all these years...
    Bob Woodward, one of the real-life heroes in the movie, is still making news while reporting news at The Washington Post. That's amazing. I used to be a reporter, and still am a Democrat, (although a moderate now), and I never was a fan of President Nixon, so I loved it when it came out, I loved the book first, and I was glued to the TV set and the papers when the whole Watergate mess unfolded. But ignore politics if you can when watching this...there are crooks in both major parties, and [...], and dumb people promoted above their talents. This is well-written, well directed, and well-acted, and can be enjoyed just as entertainment here in the new century. Sadly, the Clinton Years and the Bush Years, too, offer the realization that Watergate-type conspiracies, designed to hold onto power, avoid scandal, or launder money, are still with us.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Should be mandatory viewing for all Modern American History classes
    You know how every single American English class in ever single school in America has to read at least one Mark Twain book?Well, the same circumstance should be set for this film in relation to modern American history courses.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A must see
    My 12th grade government teacher showed our class this film, and we were all hooked.If you have ever been in a room of thirty some teenagers, you know that its hard to get their attention and keep them quiet.So really, if a bunch of teenagers enjoyed this movie, everyone should consider giving it a chance.It might not be as action packed as some of the movies out today, such as 16 Blocks, but it's gonna keep your attention, so do yourself a favor and atleast rent it, you might find yourself coming back to buy it. ...

    Editorial Review

    This total immersion approach to language means that no English isspoken on this video, and only the occasional sentence is translated onscreen. Instead, viewers are treated to five sections of objects, concepts, or actions while a woman identifies them in Spanish. The first section shows a boy (niño), various people, and animals eating (comer) and an apple (manzana) and then puts it all together (El niño come la manzana!). Thesame method is used for numbers, colors, manners, and phrases and then another section of familiar words and phrases. The 40-minute video comes with an introduction and the lessons spelled out in a fold-out cardboard display attached to the video box. This is a serious effort meant to teach children a second language while they are still quite young. But that won't stop children from enjoying the brightly colored video of animals, toys, and a multiracial cast of kids. Ages 1-5. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it
    My kids, who are 4 and 2 1/2, love these Bilingual baby videos.They are always asking me to watch them.I know that they are learning from them since they use the words daily, especially the colors and numbers.I definately recommend them.

    3-0 out of 5 stars not very interesting
    This is an OK video, but not worth all the high marks it has earned. It has one monotone womans voice saying spanish words for actions shown on the screen. There really isn't much action or "feeling" in the voice.Some of the images are confusing It reminds me of my adult Spanish learning tapes which are very boring. MY 2 year old loves videos but she doesn't seem overly impressed with this one. She does perk up at some of the images (ballons, dog, kittens, exc..) but overall there isn't much to keep her attention.

    4-0 out of 5 stars same as Brainy Baby Spanish DVD
    This VHS tape is the exact same as Brainy Baby Spanish DVD.I checked them both out from the library and was surprised to find they are the exact same video.So there is a DVD option for this video if you need one. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, Erotic, & Endlessly Enjoyable
    I've learned to accept Almodovar as he has (ahem) matured & gotten serious. He is my favorite director so I support all his progressions. However! I'm deeply & irrevocably in love with the movie Kika, its colors, its actors, its characters, its music, its dialogue, its spell. Having watched it as much as I have, I've analyzed scenes & themes that otherwise would have escaped a one time viewing only.For example, notice how Ramon kneels in front of three women, for different purposes. First the model in the opening credits as he photographs her in bed. Next, he kneels in front of his dead mother as he opens her blouse to reveal her wound. Finally, in front of Kika as he makes love to her. The posters throughout the film hint at the action to take place in the future scenes. The dialogue is hilarious beyond belief & is not all translated or not translated acurately in the subtitles. If you are an Almodovar fan, you owe it to yourself to study Spanish & brush up on Castillian regionalisms to get the fully, mordant sinuousness of the dialogue. Kika is a black comedy & must be enjoyed as such, otherwise one would not laugh at the bizarre costumes, the multiple deaths, the rape as much-needed outlet for the retarded ex-porn star, the fickleness of love, the unfaitfulness throughout. Finally, I suspect that public taste or America's increasing discomfort with black comedy when its applied to rape, is delaying or preventing the rerelease of Kika on dvd. Its available in Brazil, but, of course not with English subtitles.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "In my own dirty and silent way, I loved you."
    "Kika" (Veronique Forque) is a bubbly beautician who has a poor history with men ("I always get the weirdos"). She lives with photographer Ramon who has a few kinky habits. Ramon has never forgotten his mother's suicide, and he has mixed feelings about his sinister step-father (Peter Coyote). Ramon's ex-girlfriend, Andrea Scarface (Victoria Abril) is the bizarre former psychologist-turned-tabloid-crime-TV-host who continues to show a morbid interest in Ramon's life. 5-0 out of 5 stars Very funny movie [5]
    This is a very funny movie.The characters are very rich.The actors and actresses does a great job.This is one fascinating movie appropriate for all ages.The interaction between all the characters are fantastic and very interesting.I highly recommended it. ... Read more

    Pixar Studios have done it again. I have to say that these guys are totally good in computer animation, as well as in storytelling. Rarely do those qualities come together but here they are, delivering unto the audience once again something that one can only be drowned with wonder. Such is the marvel of Finding Nemo.

    4-0 out of 5 stars The story behind the music...
    Ok it wasn't exactly what I expected, which teaches me to read the reviews :D, but its still worth the watch to get a feel of those times and how the music came together. I bought it as a gift, and though more music would have been appreciated...it was a good blend of documentary and the music.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb music!
    I rented this movie on DVD having little knowlege about the subject matter other than it was an award winning documentary. Essentially, for me, it was an introduction to a new type of music. Many years ago in junior high school in a small town in the Rockies my Spanish teacher was a newly arrived Cuban immigrant. He was an excellent teacher and that memory made me curious about this movie. This gathering of semi-retired musicians still has so much soul and if you don't get goose bumps at least once you are probably tone deaf. Unfortunately, I have seen only the Japanese edition here in Japan which has no English subtitles for my Spanish which has grown rusty. Although I can read Japanese subtitles I would prefer English ones for the lyrics.

    One Fish Two Fish has got to be one of the earliest Begginer Books ever. Now Dr. Seuss's creation comes to life on this delightful video. Hey, I didn't even know I knew that word! Dr. Seuss's whimsical tale of the wonders of life is joined by the books Oh, The Thinks You Can Think, what you could call a suggestion book, and The Foot Book, a book about opposites. This trio makes this video come to life. Buy it!

    1-0 out of 5 stars A big disappointment
    This video was not animated like the classic Chuck Jones features such as "The Cat In The Hat" and "The Grinch".My daughter was rather disappointed to see the camera scanning over pages of the books she already owns along with paper cutouts of the characters floating around as a cheap replacement for animation.We give this video a thumbs down.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not impressed

    3-0 out of 5 stars In Many Ways Superior to the English Version--But Villarias Kills The Show
    Language was no barrier to Hollywood in the silent era: title cards were easily translated from English.When sound began to roar, Hollywood began to fear the loss of its foreign markets--and so, for a brief time, the studios occasionally produced two versions of certain films, one in English and one in another language, most often German or Spanish.Such was the case with the 1931 DRACULA.
    3-0 out of 5 stars good if you're spanish
    I bought the dracula legacy collection and watched the spanish version with english subtitles.I thought it was OK,but seemed too much of a remake of the first one.But if you are Spanish you'll love it!In this film there are things that weren't in the original but it also doesn't have stuff that wasn't in the original.
