Minority Report (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A Cool and Intelegent Thriller


"Minority Report" is sci-fi done right. It's sucsessful as a film because a suspenceful action film that raises very specific questions of morality, foreknowledge and judgement. In the future crime can be predicted and murderers can be arrested before they commit the crime. The main issue of the film is a question aimed right at the center of our judicial system- If someone is innocent till proven guilty, is that person still guilty is they are caught before they commit the crime they WILL commit? Tom Cruise is great in the film, as are the other actors. This film is vintage Speilberg, with intense action sequences and building suspence. There's also a fare share of sci-fi gross out sequences (ala "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "Jurassic Park") that are very entertaining and add to the main character's plight. You can't help but cringe in your seat as you watch Cruise's character undergo a black-market eye transplant! The color of the film (in tones of stoney blue and grey) and complex camera angles add to the suspence and place the audience in a sereal, yet highly believable futuristic environment. "Minority Report" is an entertaining action film that will give you much to talk about.

Can you say WOW


If you thought that the original movie version of Return of the King was good, this version just doubles it, maybe even triples it. The added scenes just add so much more depth and quality to the characters and scenes. The over four hour time goes by so quickly it seems like 1 hour. All I have to say is buy this movie and watch it over and over..

.Hack


Things were bound to cool down after the action-packed third volume of this popular series revolving around Tsukasa, a player trapped and unable to log out of "The World," the most popular online community/RPG of the near future.
This volume starts of with a recap of the previous one: several players have formed teams to search for the "Key of the Twilight," a legendary item that, rumor has it, could reset The World or free Tsukasa. Several players were transported to an alternate dimension and found a character called "The Broken Man" spouting nearly-incoherent clues about the Key. At the disc's end, Tsukasa sacrifices himself to free buddies Mimiru and Bear, and lies lifeless on the ground.
The players sit and speculate after the recap: what has happened to Tsukasa? Who is The Broken Man? And what, if anything, significance did his babbling have? Meanwhile, we find a shell-shocked Tsukasa sitting back in his hidden world, dazed out and whimpering while picking on a teddy bear, the strange female voice continuing to speak to him.
This may be the slowest disc of the series, which is saying a lot considering the dripping-molasses pace this series offers. There is indeed very little in terms of physical action, and surprisingly, very little in terms of advancing the series. The disc does contribute to the overall feel by examining BT, one of the sub-main characters who hedges the line between good and bad. She finds herself at the mercy of two players, but is "saved" by Tsukasa; pangs of guilt over her views and treatment of Tsukasa make her open up to him. Similarly, her growing affections for the likeable Crim are deflected when she offers to meet in the real world. She sits sobbing as he leaves, her online character emotionally distressed by the lack of real-life interaction. This makes a great statement about the feel of the series: some can still make out the line between the virtual World and the real World; others are beginning to lose that distinction.
A semi-major plot event occurs at the end of the disc, with no major ramifications to the rest of the series other than a set-up for a character to change allegiances later in the story.
A slow, slow disc, even for ".hack" fans. It'll be like watching a snail crawl through tar for non- ".hack" viewers.

Great Video, but NOT UNCUT.


This is a great g?allo horror film that clearly inspired many future films! The scene with the orange couch and knitting needles is even referenced in "HALLOWEEN!" This is clearly one of Argento's greatest works. However BE WARNED! This is not the full, uncut, uncensored version -as advertised. Still, it is a master work with a haunting score and scary story! Enjoy!

Red Dragon - Collector's Edition (Widescreen) - movie DVD cover picture
A FINE DINE!


I was flat out smiling after the credits rolled during the closing of the remake/prequel, ?Red Dragon.? It had that same touch and emotion on the big screen via ?Hannibal?. This beginning of a perfect-lined trilogy starts out differently to the cheesy, yet underrated ?Manhunter? (Michael Mann?s original Hannibal Lector film). The film begins with how Dr. Hannibal ?The Cannibal? Lector is captured and locked up in the first place, giving the full understanding to this infamous, yet charming character, who is recognized everywhere. Sir Anthony Hopkins shines on screen with an absolute brilliant performance. His third and last attempt at evilness is understood to be the best yet. When I heard about this remake, I was worried on two names that seemed not to fit this perfect saga: director Brett Ratner (famous for his ?Rush Hour? films) and a fine actor named Edward Norton. Now. I may have not given Mr. Ratner a chance because he seemed to follow the same path as directors Jonathan Demme (?The Silence of the Lambs?) and Ridley Scott (?Hannibal?). Ratner?s direction with camera angles and the darkness of ?Red Dragon?, seemed to have improved as being a fine director. As for Edward Norton (famous for beating himself up in ?Fight Club?), I still don?t picture Norton as Will Graham. The story follows as Graham is pushed out of retirement. He tries to unravel a monster of huge proportion, a killer under the name Red Dragon. Similar to ?The Silence of the Lambs?, Dr. Lector helps out Graham to catch the Dragon. This film is best compared to a jigsaw puzzle. It has that edge-of-the-seat-don?t-know?what-to- expect feel to it. It?s a privilege to see a thriller without the cheap gore or cheap scares. On the other hand, it?s no different then ?Manhunter? in a lot of ways, besides the performance of goodie-goodie Hopkins. This new updated version is just as comparison as seeing ?Manhunter? on a special extended version on DVD. The plot is the same, the scenes are the same, and even some of the dialogue is the same. But what is different from the 1986 version and this new 2002 version is that the subplot of the relationship between Graham and Dr. Lector. ?Red Dragon? could have been produced better if there wasn?t an Edward Norton in the picture. I don?t quite imagine Norton as retired FBI agent Will Graham. I thought William L. Petersen in ?Manhunter? had done a better job bringing out Will Graham from the inside. What was missing from ?Manhunter?, which makes the film forgettable, is the missing link between Dr. Lector and Graham, in which ?Red Dragon? easily portrayed. ?Red Dragon ? is not for everybody. It has the psychological controversy of ?The Silence of the Lambs.? And the fine dine and gore of ?Hannibal?. In the words of the evil genius Dr. Hannibal Lector, ?Ta-ta?.

Simply BEAUTIFUL.


A lovely tale of an untraditional relationship that encompasses the traditional Chinese virtue of fillial duty that has touched everyone we have lent the DVD to. If you are an instant gratification type person though, bear through the first few moments during which the director takes their time in unfolding the story; the ending is definitely worth the wait. You won't regret watching the movie when you're done.

Fly Jefferson Airplane - movie DVD cover picture
WARNING: May trigger flashbacks.


I guess I developed my appreciation for the Jefferson Airplane during my college years (1977-1981). I'm no child of the sixties, but my uncle went to Woodstock, and like many college students I learned of the magical powers of certain hallucinogenic substances. There is some ineffable quality in Jefferson Airplane's music that lends itself well to the psychedelic experience, and anyone who knows where I'm coming from ought to get this DVD. Apparently produced under the auspices of Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, this disc captures some of the magic of the San Francisco music scene, circa 1965-1972, and the pivotal role Jefferson Airplane played therein. That the members of the band are still alive and still relatively LUCID is nothing short of amazing, but if you are looking for dish, you won't find much here; there's nothing in the interviews that hints of the acrimony that sometimes flared during the band's heyday. But the musical performances: WOW! Where did they dig up some of these films? And how did they preserve them so well? Particularly fascinating for me is the performance of "It's No Secret," featuring the band's FIRST female vocalist, Signe Anderson. Her presence is altogether different from that of her successor, Grace Slick, but there's something about the quality of her voice that always intrigued me. The performance is a heady mixture of exultant vocals, jubilant dancing in the audience, and of course those very trippy liquid light shows that Ms. Anderson's first husband was apparently responsible for. I don't think you can overestimate the archival value of "Fly Jefferson Airplane." So break out the stash, slap this disc on the DVD player, and take a little TRIP back in time ....
