Who says adults can't watch cartoons?
A friend of mine introduced me to the Naruto series, and I have liked it from the first moment I saw Gaara of the Sand walk across the screen! I am now engaged with trying to watch all of the episodes starting with the very first one, and I am impressed beyond measure by it's storyline, which manages to combine action, adventure, humor, science fiction/fantasy, and coming-of-age elements all in one. I wouldn't recommend it for young children due to some very dark elements which surface and, of course, violence. However, the very dark elements succeed in intensifying the storyline, and in character building. All the characters are very unique, no cookie-cutter fill-ins here!, and the bad guys are especially well developed. This is a far cry from Skeletor and Cobra which were the villains of my youth (and oops, I've just dated myself). The only drawback I can think of are the excessively long battle scenes, which can take up several episodes. The number of episodes in proportion to the importance of the battle.
Reign of Fire (2002)
They skipped over what promised to be the best part. I was all set to watch the dragons destroy the earth, see major cities blown up, feel the drama of panic stricken humans fleeing before this terrible menace out of Legend. Instead they narrated over it so they could get to the truly intriguing bickering and depressing life in a post-apocalyptic castle. Bleh, I told myself going in it would only be good if the dragons won.
