Two new reviews up. After 25 hours, I finished playing Shadow Hearts – a fantastic RPG – and have begun playing Advance Wars, a Christmas gift. Between these two titles I briefly indulged in Sega's Rez, which was not as good as Tron, the movie to which Sega claimed the game to be similar.

Speaking of movies, I finally got the Harry Potter film under my belt. No complaints, but it didn't really add much to the books, which are so available and easy to read that there's little reason for a fantasy-lover to not have read them by now.

One last movie tidbit: one of my all-time favorite movies (right up there with Tron and Terminator 2) is coming to DVD. March 26th brings not only Star Trek: The Next Generation, Season One to DVD, but also Watership Down I never thought I'd live to see the day… Alleluia! (of course, my cherished 1983 TV taping, complete with "New Fruit Roll-Ups!" and "Tonight, on the Dukes of Hazzard… followed by Dallas and Falcon Crest" commercials will always have a place in my library.)
