10,000 Stars


That is how many stars I would give this film if it were possible. I recommend this movie to anyone, particularly to parents with children. Show this movie to your children so they can get "the point." It is a very important movie.

Last Exile:Vol 1-7 Complete Box Set - movie DVD cover picture
Best anime from GONZO


As all the reviewers have pointed out, this is one of the best anime series ever! It is visually stunning, has a great plot and character design that draw you right into the show. I don't think I need to add any more comment to the show, instead, I will talk about the DVD box set.

This complete series box set is the best way to collect this anime. It has the same collector's box, figurine and mousepad as those from the volume 1 Limited Edition, which retails for $50 alone. The only things missing from this box set are the limited bonus such as postcards and paper vanships that came with the initial run of the individual volumes. In lieu of the bonus items, you do get a very good price for the entire collection.

superb


I read Hart's novel when I was a senior in high school, so I was very curious how the film would turn out. Louis Malle did a fabulous job capturing the obsession and darkness of the novel on the screen. His interview at the end of the film is a must see. Binoche and Irons were perfect. Miranda Richardson stole the show, however, with her small, but extremely well-portrayed role as the wife. However, I have had mixed results recommending this movie to friends. Most of them do not like it nearly as much as I do....they just think that Binoche is crazy and Irons is obsessed and do not think about it in any more depth. Be sure you are in the mood to contemplate obsession and lust before you watch it.

Come On Get Up and Buy This DVD! Cause it's Covo Vida Loca!


Ah, yes! How could I, as Amazon's horror hostess, avoid discussing this haunting silent film classic? Released way back in 1925, "The Phantom of the Opera" displays the extravagance of live theatre, a delightful feast for the eyes. Set in the Paris Opera, the film stands out in its grand opulence; its lavish sets include the wide staircase, endless statue carvings, a full orchestra pit, the building's five tiers, and a chorus of petite ballet girls leaping in starch-white linen. Let's not forget the immense crystal chandelier which falls upon the terrified audience, triggering a spread of screams and terror. The Masquerade Ball is stained in Technicolor and shows the coquettish merriment of 19th century aristocrats. Even actress Mary Philbin is granted a gorgeous introduction as the tale's beautiful chorus girl, Christine Daae; crowned with golden curls that cascade down to her waist, she rises above the stage on angel's wings during her aria in "Faust." Despite a few plot alterations (including its violent ending), most of the film is drawn from Gaston Leroux's 1911 novel. The cast itself is quite extraordinary to watch; Norman Kelly's role as Christine's lover, Raoul de Chagney, reflects that of a hero drawn forward by curiosity and concern. Arthur Edmund Carewe's Ledoux (a substitute for Leroux's Persian character) is mysterious enough to make viewers wonder who's side he takes, until it's finally revealed that he works for the Secret Police. Virginia Pearson performs her role as Carlotta's Mother with a prima donna gusto; fiercely determined to boost her daughter's career, she's a woman who will won't let an Opera Ghost get in her way. Speaking of the Opera Ghost, no actor can bring the grotesque and somber Erik to life like Lon Chaney, the Man of 1000 Faces. His love for Christine twists into a deadly obsession, and viewers will pity his cursed existence. Interestingly, before this movie premiered, Chaney insured a contractual obligation that forbid photographers from revealing his makeup. In the scene when Christine first exposes The Phantom's grotesque face (with its bulging eyes, gnarled teeth, and protruding cheekbones), old women fainted in the audience and were revived with smelling salts! Obviously, he took great care to match the description given by the doomed stagehand Joseph Buquet (Bernard Siegel): Erik's was said to look like a hollow skull with yellow parchment skin. I don't want to bore you with any extraneous detail. I just want to say that this film is the BEST version you can see of "Phantom of the Opera." It's a chilling and melodramatic piece of cinematic art.

Live and Let Die - movie DVD cover picture
The Best, And the Funniest


As an ardent Bond fan, I find it surprising that this is not seen as a true Goldfinger-style classic. The music, far better than any other bond movie music, defines the tension 100% and the voodoo plot, which could easily have been silly, is handled sensibly and is extremely dark, where both Bond and the audience know nothing. Moore is superb, probably in his best performance before he got too old, and the villain, very humanly played by Yaphet Kotto, is not with silly frailties like in the exceptional novel (he suffered from accidie, greying skin and his head was enormous, amongst other things). Admittedly silly characters like the irritating JW Pepper and Rosie Carver ruin some of the tension, but this hardly matters looking at the big picture. Moore's hilariously bad one-liners and generally likeable and squeaky-clean persona is the perfect contrast to the voodoo world. The only real problem with this movie is the boat chase scene- with half this length and no Sherriff Pepper it would only just be passable, but it doesn't stop the audience (or at least me) wondering what is really going on, and wanting more, Roger Moore. A pity he followed up with The Man With the Golden Gun, a frankly laughable effort.

what fun....


This movie coms from the director of ' the limey'...i think. anyways. this movie was FUN.
tons of fun shots and good cast. Bernie Mac and the lil chinese dude took me by surprise but they knew their roles. they did not 'overact', which i think what most minor actors do a lot in movies....
Daniel Ocean( George Clooney), fresh out of jail decides to rob 3 most richest casinos in LasVegas owned by Andy Garcia, who stole his wife away from him. Him and his 'eleven's, with their well thought out plan, starts to work, to get their 11somethin million each....

The great item EVER!!!


My daughter would look at this video from the time she was two weeks old. I would hold her near the screen and she would be in awe. When she got a bit older, she would sit in her bouncer and watch the whole thing. She did this very early. A little over a month and she was riveted to it.She is four months now..and she loves it so much. There is a dragon in it, and every time he comes on the screen, she bursts into laughter!!! I would highly recommend this...only buy the DVD if you can...the DVD will allow you to watch the same scene over and over..(like the Dragon)..or to rewind in an instant.This is her favorite thing to do...and baby einstein dvd too..it gives mommy or daddy a few moments to fold laundry or take a phone call. Love this item.

Nevertheless, it's good


It's been years since i've seen the first one, but I own part II and I've read the book. To me, the second movie was good, but it was the same old good vs. evil plot, as in the first. i've never seen the third one, but I would like to, and I'd rather stay away from the television series that's now being shown on TMN (The Movie Network). The best are the first 2; the 'originals'.
