5 stars is not enough


This is the greatest, most thought provoking movie I have seen in a long time. As eerie as the Exorcist and as enlightening as The Greatest Story Ever Told. Patricia Arquette is fantastic as the athiest who learns faith the hard way. Gabriel Byrne is terrific as the struggling priest. The hypocrasy of the Catholic Church is shown and how throughout this magnificent and dark exploration of what it means to be a true believer.

Futurama, Vol. 3 - movie DVD cover picture
This is better than snoo-snoo!!!


There are many reviews that concentrate on the show, so I'll concentrate on DVD quality. :-) (Incidentially, look for my Futurama volume 1 review in regards to my title line and how it got past FOX broadcast censors, hehe... of course, to know the actual origin of "snoo-snoo", you'll have to watch a certain episode in this volume!)
While Volume 3 contains mostly season 3 episodes, it's been said that season 3 is the lowest rated. While season 3 does have a few turkeys in the midst, the remaining episodes easily make up for the loss. As a result, no demerits.
Volume 4 will be released this fall. These volumes were actually produced seasons. FOX aired these episodes in a different order and, indeed, the "fifth" season is nothing more than 16 episodes originally slated for seasons 3 and 4 (now add up how many episodes were aired officially for seasons 3 and 4... wow, they did cut back quite a few! I wonder if NFL has anything to do with that...) And if Volume 4 can be judged based on the quality of the previous volumes, I'd pre-order it right now!
FOX knows the value of its customers, or at least the value of DVD. The video/image quality of these episodes is as perfect as they can get. It's virtually identical, if not better, than that of broadcast quality. Colors are vibrant, pictures are crisp... yum!
The only minor down side is the lack of Dolby 5.1 treatment for the sound. However, in Dolby 2.0, it still rocks. No demerits.
The menu system I keep harping about is rectified in Volume 3. There's a better layout, a more consistent layout, and most deliciously there's finally a "PLAY ALL" feature.
If you're a fan of Futurama, this set is a MUST BUY. Heck, it's so good, I recommend you get it for full MSRP! But I have yet to argue with amazon.com's prices...

The best movie for the beauty of body in motion


Attractive girls, June 6, 2003 Reviewer: A viewer from MA United States Of course, it's not aerobics, but anyway I did not expect it. Just very nice girls (especially jumping one). I would put 5 stars if it was real aerobics with attractive (naked!) instructor.
Since there are some who give their comment as this is erotic and they are probably teaching how to have sex in the air either....never mind take this like a dream.

a total mind ****


The Truman Show was such a witty and clever movie. The parts in the movie were so well put together that sometimes you actually thought that you were watching a movie or a TV show. I also thought that Jim Carey did an excellent job in it. It was a nice contrast from some of his other movies. I think he was the perfect guy for the part. This is the reason I gave The Truman Show 5 stars. It truly deserved it.

Jack the Giant Killer - movie DVD cover picture
I think i've seen the non-musical version. . .


This was my favorite movie when i was little, even though some of the dialogue seems weird now. =) Some of the costumes are wonderful and the plot is great! There is the typical princess being kidnapped but with several interesting twists, having her become one of the enemy's henchmen. It is similar to other movies at the time, but that can only be expected, so one has to enjoy it for what it is.

Reservoir Dogs - movie DVD cover picture
Violence as Poetry


First things first, I'm not going to call Reservoir Dogs 'Quentin Tarantino's best movie', because I love all of his movies dearly and I will not pick favorites. Nevertheless, as of the last time I saw the three of them (the other ones being, of course, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. I'm not counting Four Rooms, because he only had one segment in it - even if it was the best part of the movie), Reservoir Dogs was the one I enjoyed most.
A brief overview: Lawrence Tierney is Joe Cabot, and Chris Penn is his son 'Nice Guy' Eddie. Joe is a crime boss planning a diamond heist, and for the operation he hires six men, all of them acquainted with Cabot but none of which knows each other. To avoid having any details about one another they keep their identities secret and call each other by code names: Mr. White (Harvey Keitel), Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), Mr. Pink (the always wonderful Steve Buscemi), Mr. Blonde (action star Michael Madsen in the part of a lifetime), Mr. Blue (Eddie Bunker) and Mr. Brown (Tarantino himself, who gets killed at the very beginning of the movie). When the robbery becomes a bloodbath, the thieves escape to the rendezvous and try to figure out what went wrong and who's responsible.
The movie is basically a very small scale theatrical production, as the main body of the story takes place in only one location, although there are several flashbacks that play a very important part in the film. The movie caused a lot of buzz at the time of its release partly due to its high level of violence, but today it seems much less shocking and that gives us a chance to better appreciate Tarantino's unique storytelling abilities - especially since having also seen Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown we can now safely assume that its success wasn't a one time thing. Tarantino's dialogue is brilliant beyond competition and his juxtaposition of conversations about life-and-death issues and mindless chatter about the most minor trivialities of life makes his movies a treat to watch (Note the Madonna conversation in the beginning of Reservoir Dogs and the Delfonics chats in Jackie Brown. While I'm on the subject, the use of music here is brilliant, as Quentin juxtaposes a nostalgic 70s radio show with the film's most violent scenes). The poetry and beauty put into the most violent sequences are as enchanting as they are shocking, and Michael Madsen's torture scene, backed with Stealer's Wheel's 1970s hit `Stuck In The Middle With You', became an instant timeless classic.
Tarantino is of course the main guy in this classic, but the actors are all worthy of praise. Harvey Keitel is a great straight man, who seems to be the only honest person in the film, and the always nervous and catatonic Steve Buscemi balances him out. Michael Madsen and Tim Roth are both spectacular, and Lawrence Tierney is brilliant (as another character describes him - "You remember the Fantastic Four?... The Thing. He looks just like The Thing.") The relationships forming between the six individuals, all of the complete strangers, make Reservoir Dogs a really fascinating watch. Tarantino is a picky director; he makes few movies, but the ones he makes really count. I'm waiting for his next release, `Kill Bill', eagerly. If you missed out on any of his three masterpieces, don't.
