Alien - movie DVD cover picture
25 years / it still works


Every generation or so, a production like this comes along.
Psycho was to the sixties hidden madness as Alien was to the Eighties sci-fi horror genre. Both were triumphs, and belong in any terror aficionado's library.
It's all said before - I can't add a word to the accolades.
It may take another two generations before it art and craft are surpassed.

~!~coolio-funk~!~


I love this movie! I watch it over and over and over all the time. I think why I enjoyed it so much is because it's like a dream of mine, I love the Bahamas, and I might even go this summer! The first time I watched it I thought it was lame, but after a while I learned to love it! It's a really girly movie, beaches, tanning, boys, beautiful sunsets, lavish hotels, smoothies (lol), swimming, shopping, the cute outfits, omg it was just really exciting. You should buy it (well if you're like me lol)

Citizen Kane (Two-Disc Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Voted #1 Movie (AFI) in last 100 years. WHY? Read on ......


Citizen Kane is considered by many cinematic experts and the AFI (American Film Institute) to be the GREATEST AMERICAN film of the last 100 years and maybe of all time. With this SPECIAL DVD EDITION set we now can understand the complexity and genius of the film and the characters it portrays. Many hundreds of reviewers have made comments, given opinions and their ideas about this epic "CITIZEN KANE".I only want to add my observation and enlightenment to this #1 Classic Film. I was curious to learn why this was voted and acclaimed to be the BEST AMERICAN FILM in the last 100 years.My advice and conclusions are:1.) Make this a project (as if it was for school or research). 2.) Understand the world of 1941.3.) Understand the Characters both real and within the world of Citizen Kane.4.) Discover the meaning of "ROSEBUD".This DVD set provides all the background and character development (DISC 2). Once you move into this world you will be ready to enjoy and digest the movie (DISC 1).
This DVD set is a great educational tool to the world of the cinematic genius of Orson Welles and the power of money. A newly ReMastered Picture and Sound DVD provides the vivid black & white world of "Citizen Kane". After watching & studying all the Special Features, I was ready to graduate to the movie itself. Now it is to me A Classic, a one time event in the history of cinema.This is a great experience and with the right investment in time you may to consider "CITIZEN KANE" one of the best films ever to bloom from a "ROSEBUD" and why.

WKRP in Cincinnati - movie DVD cover picture
The Funniest TV Program Ever


WKRP is, without a doubt, the funniest sitcom ever. the thanksgiving turkey episode has to be the number 1 episode, while the episode where johnny fever and venus are at the broadcast tower and waiting for the "telephone police" is a riot also. and les with his bandaids and not knowing where it will show up next is great. a must for a serious (or not so serious) collector to have. can't wait for it to come out on dvd.

Def Leppard: Hysteria - movie DVD cover picture
How a classic album was made.


When Def Leppard started to work on Hysteria, their producer "Mutt" Lange stated that what they were trying to make was a hard-rock "Thriller", as in Michael Jackson's mega-success. The album Hysteria became speaks for itself in the quality of the songs, in the record sales it achieved, and in the wide audience it was able to reach. Any fan will attest to that and even non-fans are forced to recognize that this album hit the heighest of the summits in pop-rock.

The album, however, doesn't speak of its own history and what hardships the band had to overcome in order to give birth to this classic. This DVD, which is a must for any rabid Def Lep fan, fills this gap. It tells the long and painful history of the album, discusses (albeit almost in passing) the personal drama that touched the lives of band members, and shows how the album was produced in minute detail.

Audiences looking for a video collection will not like what they see in this DVD. On the other hand, audiences interested in how great songs are born and perfected will really appreciate this
documentary. In there one will find several clips of videos and live performances and even a couple of acoustic versions of songs like "Hysteria" and "Pour Some Sugar on Me" (played by Joe Elliott and Phil Collen), but that is not the best in the treasure chest. More than anything else, I enjoyed seeing a little bit of each band member's perspective on Def Leppard's music and their trajectory to a short period of super-stardom.

Austin Powers - The Spy Who Shagged Me (New Line Platinum Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Shaga-DELICIOUS, baby, YEAHHHH!


Anyone who thinks AP2 stinks is either 1) dead; 2) believes Al Gore has a 'terrific, swinging' personality.
The Spy Who Shagged Me may not reinvent cinema verite, but it is a universal panacea for depression (or a nasty market day, or both), delivering Austin's raunchy bad humor, atrocious overbite, swinging scene, Dr. Evil, and the inimitable Mini-Me. Possibly one of the most delightful performances (and disturbing) is handed in by Rob Lowe, who plays the younger version of Robert Wagner's #2 with a little *too* much alacrity.
What could you possibly find in Little Women or Pride & Prejudice that isn't in this movie, baby, YEAH!
God Bless Mike Myers.

The Sword in the Stone (Disney Gold Classic Collection) - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best Disney movies ever!!


Although not one of the shining gems in Disney's "canon" crown, this movie still has a charming quality some will appreciate.
Loosely based on White's "The Once and Future King", although "Sword in the Stone" does no justice to the original material, it is still a fun filled romp that children will love.
The Transformation bits are the best. The young Wart (the future King Arthur, believe it or not) is transformed into a bird, a fish, and a squirrel to teach Wart lessons that he will need to know once he becomes king. These are the highlights of the film.
Younger audiences will enjoy the dancing dishwashing sequence.
The final conflict between Merlin and Mim is almost anti-climatic. But we do get to see Wart withdraw the Sword from the Stone and become King Arthur. I rather liked the few references to modern technology that Merlin throws at an unknowing Wart. It gives him an aura of "I know what's going to happen" that is sorely needed by Merlin as the wizard that trains Wart.
Note that I would have given this DVD four stars if it had been presented in letterbox format (true 16X9 ratio) as well as the included pan-and-scan version.
Worth looking at for any library of children's videos, and well worth adding to a collection of Disney's classics.
