The Pagemaster (1994)
This movie deserves a place in your collection!
It's a great movie. This kid, Richard Tyler, played by young Macaulay Culkin, is really paranoid, and always talks about injury-related statistics. During a frightening storm, he takes temporary refuge from the rain in a library, run by the eerie Mr. Dewey, played by Christopher Lloyd. Richard is instructed to find a pay phone so he can tell his parents where he is.
In the middle of the library, there's a huge ceiling painting of Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde, Long John Silver and his crew from Treasure Island, Captain Aham and Moby Dick, a fierce dragon, and in the center, an old man with a long white beard and nobleman clothes holding a scroll. The ceiling starts dripping paint, and the globs are transformed into a huge dragon, which transforms everything it touches into animation. Richard, now a cartoon, meets the old man, the Pagemaster, who tells him that to get out of the library and return to normal, he must past three tests, described only as adventure, horror, and fantasy.
Soon, he also meets three hilarious talking books. The first, Adventure, played by Patrick Stewart, is probably the funniest guy in the movie. The second, Fantasy, played by Whoopi Goldberg, is also funny, but it's because of her attitude. The third, Horror, played by Frank Welker, is a brain-dead coward who looks like Frankenstein's Monster. With his three new friends, Richard has to pass the tests to get his normal form back, admittance to the exit, and most of all...the courage he never thought he had.
A Goofy Movie (1995)
The movie's insanity is a good lightener.
Contains...small spoilers. Again.
For reasons you'll never know, I was moping around my house, close to sobbing. I went down to my basement, popped 'A Goofy Movie' into my PS2 (it works as a DVD player), and stared at the screen. One minute my eyes were red with tears, the next I was hysterically laughing. This is, in my opinion, a good movie to watch if you're sad.
I thought the funniest parts were when Goofy and Max were trapped in their car by Bigfoot, and Bigfoot started dancing to 'Stayin Alive' with headphones on (Chapter 9 on the DVD), and when Goofy and Max returned from L.A. (Chapter 19). The Powerline scenes (Chapters 3 & 18) weren't funny at all, but were just cool to watch. If you don't want to buy this movie, at least rent it. It's good.
Shaman Kingu (2001)
The show is so different from the manga.
On 'Shaman King', they call Manta Oyamada 'Morty'. They call Tao Ren 'Lenny'. They call Bokuto no Ryu 'Rio'. They call Sha-Wen 'Shaolin', and Lee Bailong 'Lee Pairong'. They pronounce Tao Jun and Bason wrong. Who made this? Whoever did obviously didn't read the manga.
The only episode I watched beginning to end was the one where Yoh, Sha-Wen (Shaolin), and Amidamaru fought Lee Bailong. I didn't have a big problem with this part, but it wasn't as funny as in the manga: Manta (Morty) runs away from the battle to find a sword for Amidamaru. He finds a wooden sword, a bokuto, but gets stopped by a gang, and Ryu (Rio) saves him.
This is what should've happened: Manta still runs around, and still finds a bokuto, but the owner is Ryu, who's followed by his own gang. After consulting his conscience and his shoulder-demon, he begs for the sword, and gets hit by Spaceshot and Apache, Ryu's near-deaf stooges. He gets a bloody nose, and asks again. They hit him again. Looking even more beat-up, Manta pleads with them one final time. Ryu smashes him into a wall, and Manta lays seemingly dead. Ryu and his gang walk away, but the nose-bloodied, scratched, and bruised Manta leaps up with his heavy dictionary and whacks Ryu. Convinced Manta is a zombie, the stooges and Ryu run off, leaving Manta with the bokuto.
That was long. Anyway, these guys gotta make the anime more like the manga.
