Mambo Italiano - movie DVD cover picture
humour , honesty and class


I saw Mambo Italiano 4 times in the cinema and loved it more with each viewing. Only paranoid persons would complain about any of the characters by suggesting they are stereotypical. And it is foolish to compare this fine romantic comedy to My Big Fat Greek Wedding just because of the ethnic theme. (MBFGW was a major disappointment to me - I thought it was whimsical, but bloated and forced). At least this CANADIAN film had the integrity to keep its original location rather than pretending to be set in America to suck up to the $US.
Mambo Italiano is fast, clever, beautiful to look at, edited to perfection, gives very honest and very rare glimpses of suburban gay life (just as true here in Brisbane, Australia as in Montreal). Also it's very well acted by all the ensemble - some of Canada's very best.
Mambo Italiano should adapt readily to the small screen, because it is plot and character driven, but it's definitely worth cranking the volume and sitting through to the credits when Cake's version of "I Will Survive" will leave you fully charged.

Batman - The Animated Series, Volume One (DC Comics Classic Collection) - movie DVD cover picture
Absolutely Superb Series


Batman: The Animated Series still looks incredible after over a decade since its original broadcast. Its intelligent writing, slick visual design, quality acting, orchestral music, and above-average animation set a standard that influenced many cartoon shows that followed afterwards. In many ways Batman is still stronger than many of today's American animated programs. It is also simply better than the live-action Batman movies. In my opinion the Animated Series is actually a stronger interpretation than the 1989 movie because while the 1989 movie has awesome visuals, the Animated Series has superior writing in addition to striking visuals. Key to the writing were tight plots and detailed development for every character. Batman himself was well-written as a compelling multidimensional character. Villains were presented as complicated individuals and even characters who only appeared in one episode were interesting. The series also incorporated a good variety of villains, from colorful ones like Joker and Scarecrow, to realistic ones like thugs, mob bosses, and white-collar criminals.

All the voice actors were perfectly cast in this series. Mark Hamill (aka Luke Skywalker) totally owns the role of Joker, and Kevin Conroy remains for me the "real" voice of Batman.

The animation, while generally above average, is a bit uneven in quality since several different studios worked on the show. Some studios like Akom were a bit rough, while others such as TMS, Spectrum, and Sunrise put together SPECTACULAR work. Episodes that were weaker in animation quality are still highly watchable due to the strong writing.

I have to take issue with the official editorial review above by Charles Solomon, who suggested that the animators somehow failed because they used a more realistic approach to the animation instead of stylized movement in order to match the visual design. I personally feel that the animators struck a good balance with their approach. It gave the stylized designs some grounding and made the world of Batman: The Animated Series very immersive and believable as though it could be a real place. While stylized animation works on some projects, it would have made this series look too abstract and detract from the believability. Here the more realistic animation adds a lot of depth and weight to the cool-looking characters and backgrounds.

The extras are short but sweet, with the original pilot clip and commentary by the show's creators on the how the show got started. Solomon also contradicts himself at the end of his review by suggesting that the series, which he had wanted more stylized, would have been much better if it had matched the original pilot clip. However, the pilot is actually in many ways rendered more realistically than the rest of the series.

My only real complaint is that the sound quality should have been redone, so that it would play louder. But other than that, it's about time this DVD set came out! It is a must-have for any fan of Batman and animation. I highly recommend it!!!

Stop Complaining!!!


You people who are complaining about Lord of the Rings: Two Towers not going by the book well enough speak as if you didn't know a better version of it is coming out on DVD in late November. The Extended Cut of Two Towers will have a lot of extra parts in it that are from the book. The origional version of Two Towers was spectacular! But I am waiting, with great anticipation, to own Lord of the Rings: Two Towers Special Extended DVD Edition in late November. I am glad I own the Extended Cut of Fellowship of the Ring, its prequel. It is a great movie as well!

Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer - movie DVD cover picture
Can't sit through Barney and Friends!


My Goodness! Just when I thought that this movie was out of print I come across this wonderful link at Amazon.com! Oh, how I could kiss them!
If you are looking for an 80s cartoon to bring back the good ol' days in animation you can stop here and click the "Add to Shopping Cart" button, because you have found THE most perfect 80s cartoon of all time. People of all ages, male or female will love this movie! Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer is full of colorful animation (excuse the pun) and great songs that just make you want to get up and dance like it's the 80s all over again.
Rainbow Brite must deal with her greatest adversary yet: an evil Princess who wants to take the greatest light in the world and keep it to herself, thus causing all of the color to disappear from the world. (no light = no colors!) This is an even bigger job than trying to fight Murky or Lurky! Along the way, Rainbow Brite meets a new friend and she learns that working together really does help. Only friendship and unselfishness can save the day!
This is a rare treat to find on the web, so if you really must have an 80s cartoon to keep you going, THIS IS A MUST HAVE! It definitely made my day (as it will over and over on my television set for years to come ^_~)!!

Napoleon rules the world again!


I disagree with 'Jamie Hardy', not only am I a fifteen(almost sixteen)year old junior in highschool, I find that I can relate to this more than anyone else. I first saw this movie with my senior friend, her sister, and our art club. We're the semi-nerds at our school and have had the best time watching this DVD over and over again. We bought it on the 30th, my little sister's birthday during a surprise party and made a few new fans out of it.
I think that the cast said it best that everyone can relate with at least one of the people portrayed in the movie. For me, it's Napoleon, for my sister, it's Kip, and for my senior friend, it's Deb. This movie has someting for everyone and that's why everyone loves it!

Death Wish - movie DVD cover picture
Classic action film that is not to be missed


The first in the series, and naturally the best. Bronson is perfect in this one, making it one of his best performances. -The way he reacts to the death of his wife, first in the hospital, and later at the funeral, is very realistic and touching. Also when he attacks his first mugger, and his reaction to it; both at he scene of the attack, and subsequently at home, is gripping. The four sequels that followed all fall flat on their butt, compared to this one. -They almost seem to be making fun at the very masterpiece they were inspired by. Sure, they're fun to watch, but one doesn't really need them. I like the way this first one ends; admittedly, leaving the door open for a sequel, but apparently with no immediate plan for one. -And fine so; what may or may not follow, is much better left to the imagination. A perfect ending for a perfect film. By the way, it's about time this brilliant movie was letterboxed.

Gandhi - movie DVD cover picture
AN AWESOME MOVIE !


"Gandhi" is superb....Attenborough's multiple Oscar winner; including the Best Picture, Best Director, Cinematography, Costume Design, Art Direction, Film Editing, Screenplay, and Best Actor. Ben Kingsley realistically performs as Mohandas K. Gandhi who was a man who made humility and truth more powerful than empires.

However, the biased portrayal of Muhammad Ali Jinnah as a Muslim leader who wanted a separate homeland only for his own political aggrandizement, is quite disappointing. Jinnah's claim that the Muslim League represented the Muslims of India was substantiated in 1946, when in the elections for the Indian constituent assembly, Muslim League won all the seats assigned to the Muslim electorate. In truth, Jinnah was a brilliant man with great intellect, iron-will, eloquence and perseverance; a man with total integrity as quoted in a contemporary Time magazine.

Regardless the crap done about Jinnah, this movie is worth-seeing. For those who are interested in the history of sub-continent, "Gandhi" and "Jinnah", both are useful resources about the independence of colonial India from the British rule.

The Greatest Voice of a Lifetime


You know, I never met him, I only have all of his music and wish everyone else did too. Somtimes you have to trust strangers and their opinions about certain things,for example Engebert's vocal superiority. The guy is the absolute Greatest and this DVD will prove to all that this stranger can be trusted. Buy it.Someday it will creep into your mind and then you will wish that you could sing. He makes the world want to sing. But try to sing with him and then you will know I mean. You can't because you would rather listen to that big burgundy voice.
