Titan A. E.:  DVD
Titan A.E.
DVD Rated PG

A visual knockout, Titan A.E. is an ambitious animated feature that combines traditional animations, computer-generated imagery, and special effects in the service of a science fiction adventure.  Young man with a chip on his shoulder learns that he's the only hope to save what's left of the human race. Basic good vs. evil outer space saga has great visual effects but stock characters and situations and the dullest voice performances in animation history.

The Rugrats Movie:   DVD
The Rugrats Movie
DVD Rated G

The first theatrical film from the popular Nickelodeon TV series became the surprise hit of the 1998. The key ingredient to the Rugrats' success is the writing. Venturing into their first theatrical movie, the pals--including the intrepid diaper-wearing Tommy Pickles, the nervous Chuckie, the twins Lil and Phil, and the wonderfully prissy Angelica--garble English into funny prose ("I want those fugitives back in custard-y!") and use movie references in their fantasy life. The opening here is a dead-on spoof of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Yellow Submarine:  DVD
Yellow Submarine
DVD - Rated G

This restored, animated valentine to the Beatles offers viewers the rare chance to see a work that's been substantially improved by its technical facelift, not just supersized with extra footage. Recognizing that its song-studded soundtrack alone makes Yellow Submarine a video annuity, United Artists has lavished a frame-by-frame refurbishment of the original feature, while replacing its original monaural audio tracks with a meticulously reconstructed stereo mix that actually refines legendary original album versions.
