DVD Releases: March 2, 2010
Out this week we have Three DVDs to feature: Ponyo, 2012, and Ninja. Do we Love It, Rent it, or Avoid Like Plague?
: The latest movie in Hayao Miyazaki's
collection. I love all of his movies his vision art and story are always entertaining and edifying. I’ve been looking forward to this one for years. It did not get released to the theaters in this area I would still place this as an owner unseen for fans of Miyazaki and a renter probably an owner for the rest. Some other great movies from Hayo Miyazaki: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
, and Castle in the Sky

: a disaster film which will feature some of the more scarier natural disasters out there like Yellowstone's super volcano. I’m curious to see how they pull of the message behind the movie but I have seen so many of these go wrong which leaves me leery to watch it. Netflix says I’ll give it a 4.1 so it may be good. Definitely a renter.

: Do Not Confuse this with Ninja Assassin
the Wachowski brothers film that will be released in a couple of weeks. Ninja is a modern tale about Ninjas with a typical story line: Main character journeys to Japan to study to be a ninja then gets called back to New York to protect an armor chest with the legendary ninja weapons in it. I find it hard to place into the not interested category because I’m a sucker for Martial arts movies though every other bone in my body warns me that this won’t be good. Netflix thinks I will give it a 3 which means it’s a risk. With that in mind a renter for fans of martial arts movies and not interested for the rest.
