A ruthless Sultan (Dougray Scott) enacts a barbaric decree to avenge his unfaithful first wife by bedding--then beheading--the women of his empire. The wise Scheherezade (Mili Avital) devises a desparate plan to save her kingdom by seducing the Sultan's imagination with the fantastical tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba, and larger-than-life heroes, warriors and djinns. Mind-blowing adventure and extraordinary special effects set against the backdrop of mysterious Arabia make this an exhilarating trip. A 1999 TV movie.

price and info
Firstly this animation is up to the standard of some Manga productions. It is clear and well realised. The story is strong in that the villan is far more interesting than the heroine. Iria is a bounty hunter who is caught up in tracking the creature 'Zieram'. There follows a complicated tale of her adventures that are frequently inter-spersed with flashbacks. However the real star of the show is Zieram who proves more than a match for anything that it comes up against (It absorbs there DNA thus making itself stronger). The music is good and the dubbing is fair. Overall it should appeal to science fiction fans as well as those who enjoy a blockbuster type animation.
Slayers Try:The Dragon Shine
Slayers is a story set in a pseudo- medieval world with all the typical sword-and-sorcery trappings of the fantasy genre. With a twist. Slayers rarely, if ever takes itself seriously, and will set you laughing if you have the least sense of humor. This volume introduces a new character, Filia, who seeks the famous "genius sorceress" and bandit-killer Lina Inverse, and re-acquaints us with some old ones, Zelgadis the chimera, Gourry the "idiot swordsman", Princess Amelia, and Xelloss, the trickster priest. The episodes contain everything from a fight with a dragon to a battle with a bandit gang to the destruction of a city! But it all ends well, and Filia joins the reluctant Lina and her friends on a quest to save their world and get a decent meal.
is cast against type, everyone else is by the numbers; Christian Slater
as Hale, the earnest copilot looking to foil the plot, Samantha Mathis
as the brave park ranger caught in the middle, Frank Whaley as an eager
diplomat, Delroy Lindo as a right-minded colonel. As with his previous
script (the superior Speed), writer Graham Yost moves everything
quickly along as Hale and the ranger try to cut off Deakins's plan over
a variety of terrains. We have plane crashes, car chases, a pursuit through
an abandoned mine, a helicopter-train shootout, and lots of fighting between
boys. Each time Hale finds himself perfectly in place to foil Deakins.
Jack, a young peasant, lives in a magic forest populated with friendly
and exotic creatures. But the delicate balance between good and evil is
upset when the Lord of Darkness seizes a horn from one of the last unicorns,
thereby gaining control of the Universe. When Jack's beloved Princess
Lili is kidnapped by Darkness, the plucky lad must assemble a motley band
of elves and do battle with the forces of evil to set her free.
kinetic, supercharged action yarn about an elite SWAT-team cop (Reeves)
who's targeted by a psycho/mastermind (Hopper), and led onto an L. A.
city bus that's triggered to explode. If you're going to make a nonstop
action movie, this is the way to do it--with expert pacing, eye-popping
stunts and special effects, and characters who make sense. A bull's-eye!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
Khan, a genetically engineered "superman" prone to megalomaniacal
delusions, was exiled years ago to the barren planet Ceti Alpha 5. He
blames Admiral Kirk for his hard fate, as well as for his wife's death,
and vows revenge. When Commander Chekov mistakenly beams down to Khan's
lair, the villain finally has a means of escape. Using a parasitic creature
that allows him to control the minds of his victims, Khan seizes command
of the Starship Reliant. From there he hopes to lure Kirk to his death.
Deuce Bigalow:Male Gigolo
Night Live alum and Adam Sandler sidekick Rob Schneider plays the
title character of Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, a miserable fish-tank
cleaner who stumbles onto a new and different lifestyle when he looks
after the fish of a high-priced male prostitute (Oded Fehr from The
Mummy). Deuce teams up with a man-pimp (Eddie Griffin), gets harassed
by a crazed cop (William Forsythe), and of course falls in love with a
cute client (Arija Bareikis).
This crowd-pleasing comedy offers in-jokes at warp speed, hitting the
bull's-eye for anyone who knows that (1) the starship captain always removes
his shirt to display his manly physique; (2) any crew member not in the
regular cast is dead meat; and (3) the heroes always stop the doomsday
clock with one second to spare. So it is with Commander Taggart (Tim Allen)
and the stalwart crew of the NSEA Protector, whose intergalactic
exploits on TV have now been reduced to a dreary cycle of fan conventions
and promotional appearances. That's when the Thermians arrive, begging
to be saved from Sarris, the reptilian villain who threatens to destroy
their home planet.

Raising the Mammoth
In 1998, a team led by a French archaeologist went to upper Siberia, following
the tip that there may have been a woolly mammoth encased in the permafrost.
The team was forced to rely on local nomads for help in locating the beast;
the natives were the first to locate the mammoth's huge tusks. Fighting
the unforgiving climate, the team only had a small window of time in which
to work before the Siberian winter would stop them; indeed, they had to
return the following year to unearth the gigantic prehistoric animal.
Eventually they wound up airlifting out, with an enormous Soviet-era cargo
helicopter, a huge block of ice with two tusks sticking out and a mammoth
