As Ed (and Napoleon Bonaparte) has taught us, you can't judge a person by their height. Along similar lines, you can't judge feature by it's length! Short reviews/summaries written by mei:

Hellsing OVA
Good vs. evil, humans vs. vampires, a vampire working on the human side – same old formula, right? WRONG! (Bet everyone and their cat saw that one coming. =p ) Hellsing turns the popular vampire clichés on their heads while preserving the dominant themes commonly found in stories where the prevention of the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it is the main goal – that’s quite a feat, when the backdrop is so conventional of vampires stories in this genre. However, there’s nothing conventional about the fast-paced, action-packed gore fest that fans of the Hellsing TV series were so fond of – and the OVA version based on the internationally popular Hellsing manga does not disappoint. Within minutes, you’ll find yourself immersed in strikingly dark animation and carried into Alucard’s realm of blood, fangs, and gun-toting vampires out to save the world.

Naruto Movie 3: Crescent Moon Island's Animal Rebellion
Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Lee are off on another adventure when they’re assigned to protect the prince of the Land of the Moon on his world trip! But as fans of the long-running Naruto anime/manga series know, Naruto’s assignments are never as simple as they seem. If protecting an uncooperative prince isn’t enough, how about adding a circus to the retinue? It’s a wild adventure typical of Naruto: same antics, same hilarity, same kind of charm that Naruto fans have come to love.

Pale Cocoon
We’ve done it. The world of oceans and continents are no more, and the millennia of human achievement have been reduced to data – incomplete data, at that. Pale Cocoon follows the psychological and emotional turbulence that Ura, who works at the Archive Excavation Department, undergoes when he finds a mysterious visual record of – well, you’ll just have to watch it. =p With stunning visual effects and a musical score that fits the poignant scenes like a glove, Pale Cocoon is nothing less than a feast for the senses. (Well, the visual and audio senses, at least.) But let’s not forget the mind! Pale Cocoon grapples with the difficulty of coming to terms with the history of the human race, a history that was virtually erased by the actions of the human race itself – deep stuff. A beautifully written storyline coupled with breath-taking animation makes Pale Cocoon nothing short of a masterpiece...and whoa! It makes you think! ohmy.gif
