To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this DVD because I had previously been familiar with the band trio calling themselves the 'Hex Girls' and wanted to see the movie that they were in and the roles that they played in it. This movie is great for all that love witch stories, but be aware that most things in this movie are neither historically accurate or truthful in terms of terminology or fictional rules. Being a descendant of a witch, being male, evil and able to do magic does not make someone a warlock, it makes them a witch, because the term witch is not gender specific. Warlocks are not the male equivalent of witches, and being a witch most certainly does not mean that they are evil either. Hence the Hex girls preferring to be referred to as Wiccans rather than witches makes only little sense. It is explained due to the fact that their beliefs and practices are very close and connected to earth and nature, but then again so are those of witches. When watching this with an audience that would not know these things I think it would be appropriate to let them watch the movie and enjoy it, but them enlighten them about mistakes and wrong facts that the movie contains so that fictional stereotypes are not enforced in people's minds even more.
Sure, it's a kids movie...but I bought it for childhood nostalgia! Sure it's cheesy and I was worried it wouldn't hold up now that I am much much older. However, i can say that I still hold it up to where I held it. Love it!
Brilliant buy; I remember watching this as a kid and loving it so I bought it for my 3 year old son who is currently VERY into Scooby Doo. He thinks it's awesome and watches it daily (safe to say we now know it word for word). Great little buy. 100% would recommend.
A stocking filler for my Scooby-mad son, he loves it! It's more supernatural than the usual Scooby story but I've happily watched it with him without wanting to bang my head off a wall several times now. A good one to add to the collection.
