Kathy Smith TimeSaver - Lift Weights to Lose Weight, Vol. 2 - movie DVD cover picture
2 sessions and I'm hooked!


This is a great workout. Not only do you lift weights but you have to balance while doing it, it strengthens the 'core'. I love the design your own workout feature. Kathy's a great instructor she always shows how to do proper form and variations of the moves. Just when I'm about to swear at the TV it's over. I've only done two sessions but I'm hooked. I'm trying the stability ball workout tonight it looks fun and challenging.

Red Dawn - movie DVD cover picture
Classic Cold War Thriller still packs an explosive punch!


I remember when this film was first released in 1984, and the controversy surrounding it, became a major topic of discussion among my friends in school. The first PG-13 rated movie to come out into theaters. Yet, despite its right-wing overtones, this film was definately a classic from the start. From beginning to end. And with a cast of brat-packers that would go on to major careers like Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, Charlie Sheen, Powers Boothe, Jennifer Grey, and the like. It even had some classic actors from films from the past like Harry Dean Stanton, William Smith, Ron O'Neal, the late Ben Johnson, Roy Jensen, and the late Vladek Sheybal.
Filmed on location in New Mexico, Red Dawn tells the story of the Russians and Cubans invading the United States, and how a group of teenagers, along with a downed U.S. Air Force pilot, fight back against the Communists with everything they have. Like true patriots, they fight for their country, their families, and their homes. Yet, at the same time, while killing off as many of the Communists as they can, some of them get killed off as well. The scene where Robert (C. Thomas Howell) is killed by two Russian helicopters is the most memorable. the characters are muti-dimensional and real, as they are shown as young kids forced into manhood at an alarming rate. These are tragic characters that you feel for and care about as the movie progresses.
Despite what some people say about the film, I enjoyed it. This was a movie that I constantly watched when it was on cable, and I could immediately relate to it. Having grown up during the Cold War era, the idea of the Communists invading the USA, was a frightening scenario. And it was a real one. It could have happened, giving the circumstances that the Russians were going through at the time.
If you enjoy classic war movies and the works of the young actors in this film, check out Red Dawn. It's a film worth watching.

A Nightmare on Elm Street - movie DVD cover picture
Scary movie of all time!


I think these Nightmare series scare me the most than any other horror movie. The scariest scene that I don't like to watch is where Johnny Depp's character is on the bed and Freddy just grabs him down and kills him then blood comes out on the wall. I think Nightmare is a lot scarier than watching those cheesy Jason movies. Those Friday the 13th series are terrible and don't even scare me. I think Nightmare scares me the most. I own the Complete Nightmare set on DVD and I sometimes scared to watch them. I think it's scarier than The Grudge. If you get scared at movies then don't watch this. It will scare you!

Dahmer - movie DVD cover picture
My Favorite Movie of All-Time!!!


Bravo! Jeremy Renner steps up to the plate and kills a homerun! Pardon the pun...I couldn't resist. Check out the featurette - it gives you an in-depth look at how far Renner was willing to go in his research of his part of Dahmer and how he got every little creepy nuance of Dahmer's personality(or lack therof) and his every bizarre subtle mannerism down to an exact science. I love the part when he's in the chocolate factory and he tells the new guy, "this job could make you go nuts...if you're not o.k. up top." Imagine making chocolate Santa Clauses for 8 hours/day and then on your lunch break eating them for lunch as you sit by yourself in the break room in solitary thinking of what guy you're going to get to pass on out on Whiskey and Coke(..and GHB) and then ... with a power drill, saw, and then dissect until you're bored with him. Only the sickest, demented, deluded, and demoniacal serial killer of eternity - Jeffrey Dahmer.

Fight Club (Single Disc Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
One phenominal movie, on two incredible disks


If you buy one movie this year, it must be Fight Club. This was one of the most underatted movies of the year. You really can't say a lot of the plot without revealing the movie, but trust me, it goes beyond anything that the trailer might lead you to think. The movie is soo good, that immidately after watching the movie, you want to see it again. The second disk sets new standards for the term "extras". Everything ever created for the movie is here. I'm serious, you will find soo much stuff on the second disk, you may never watch it all. The only DVD that comes close with extras is the "Abyss Special Edition", but the more I look at it, "Fight Club" blows it away. Overall, do yourself a favor and buy this DVD. This DVD will be that one that you will use too show off you DVD player and stereo to your friends, just because it is one incredible movie.

I was there..Anaheim CA


This is a great DVD. I was at the CA show when the DVD and CD were recorded. They did a great job of relating what it was like to be at the show. I've seen Paul Rodgers 3 times now in the past 2 years and his voice is better then ever. What you get on the DVD and CD is what we heard at the show. This is a must have for Paul Rodgers and Bad Company Fans.

Mission:Perfect


I have read so many mixed reviews about this film. Especially where M:I is compared to M:I 2. DON'T COMPARE THE TWO! They are two entirely different movies.So what if Ethan Hunt becomes the 21st century James Bond.I did not find the plot confusing. A lot of people are put off because they claim this M:I has "no action." But this is a true drama in the sense! I watch this almost every night and see something different everytime.DePalma's irregular camera angles of the actors add to the tense pace. Acting is top notch. Casting is perfect. John Voight plays the "mole"/badguy to perfection. Vanessa Redgrave was a pleasant suprize. And Cruise is as usual at his best! And I don't mind the use of the interchangeable faces in this M:I or M:I 2. I hope Cruise keeps it in M:I 3

The Man in the Iron Mask - movie DVD cover picture
EXCELLENT!


Definitely a GREAT movie, The Man in the Iron Mask, picks up several years after The Three Musketeers left off. Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan, have gotten older, but that doesn't stop them from riding once again to defend King and Country.
Leonardo DiCaprio, John Malkovich, Gerard Depardieu, Jeremy Irons, Gabriel Byrne, and the rest of the cast have truly outdone themselves with their performances, which are outstanding to say the least!
All the actors, without exceptions, give it their 100% making this movie one of the best of its kind. The actors' great talent and chemistry clearly shows, thus providing an entertaining film that can be watched over and over again. The castles, the battles, the costumes, the setting, the plot, the dialogues, and the music are all wonderful!
It is a movie about duty, love, honor, bravery, loyalty, and heroes from a time long gone.
In conclusion, The Man in the Iron Mask is a film guaranteed to provide an evening's entertainment and one to seriously consider adding to your movie collection!

Bride and Prejudice - movie DVD cover picture
Entertaining musical delight and fine tribute to Jane Austen


I wasn't much of a fan of "Bend it like Beckham", so I think this film marks a step up for the director. I've never watched a Bollywood film all the way through, as I don't have the patience to sit through three or four hours of most films, so I was looking forward to watching her borrow the best elements from the Bollywood films (the song and dance routines). I also liked that she borrows heavily from Jane Austen's novel to create an original and clever work of her own (in the vein of "Clueless").

I love the Indian actress who plays the lead, with her opinionated comments and strong determination to stand up to anyone who disagrees with her. Her tart tongue, though, makes her not a good bride prospect for Indian males in search of a subservient wife. When she meets Darcy, their worldviews clash and since I knew those two would end up together, its interesting to watch how their opinions change for one another as the film rolls on.

The film is mostly set in Amritsar, India but the Indian family this film centers on ends up globetrotting to London and Beverly Hills. I like how the story seems to offer a critique of both the condescending view many Westerners have of developing world nations (particularly the Western tourist fondness for traveling to luxurious resorts in faraway lands to brag to the folks back home that they've been to India without actually seeing "the real India") and the obsession of Indian society towards material social climbing. It's that clash that makes this film all the more interesting and far superior to the usual gamut of cliched "romantic comedies".

The opening number "Marriage Has Come to Town" really sets the tone for the film and just try to keep your body still for that one. This is a good film to watch at home, as you'll probably want to dance along to the exotic beats of Indian music. Later on in the film, there's a musical sequence reminiscent of "Grease" (intentional, according to the director) and a beach rave scene featuring a seductive Ashanti at her best. By the film's end, with its satisfying conclusion, I simply wanted more, which is a good thing. Perhaps that's why Bollywood films are so long...viewers just aren't tired of the story to leave yet, as there are still more dancing to be done. I'm sure Jane Austen herself would approve of this transcultural tribute to one of her most famous novels.
