A Sad Commentary


This film graphically illustrates the downfall of the American Red Cross. Victims of political pressure to a president who refused to recognize HIV as the deadly menace it is, both the Red Cross and researchers more attune to personal gain than to the needs of the general populace allowed a countless number of innocent Americans to become exposed to HIV.
Regardless of your sexual orientation, HIV can affect you. This film points out the senseless acts of so many once held in high regard, and the unwillingness to spend a few extra dollars to protect the public at large. May we all learn a lesson from this debacle and strive to continue improving healthcare in America.

Being John Malkovich - movie DVD cover picture
Anything less than DVD, and you're not getting full effect


With Hollywood cranking out more mindless films each and every year, it's important to take some time to stop and appreciate those rare films that combine strong writing, inventive direction, fine acting and a unique story.
"Being John Malkovich" fits the bill. But don't go into it expecting standard Hollywood fare. The movie twists your understanding of the movies and leaves you wanting more. Is the story possible or believable? Nope. Does it require the viewer to suspend disbelief? Absolutely. Of course, that's also what makes it so much fun.
The film is director Spike Jonez's debut, but he makes the transition from music videos to cinema seamlessly. The acting is top-shelf, with John Malkovich brilliantlty playing himself, the always excellent John Cusack and Cameron Diaz leading the way.

Felicity - Freshman Year Collection (The Complete First Season) - movie DVD cover picture
Hearing every "Hey" all over again


I was ecstatic when I received the boxed set of "Felicity" as a Christmas present. I couldn't buy it for myself because I couldn't justify the cost. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. After spending Christmas morning watching five episodes, and reading the synopsis of the first-season episodes, I was thrilled that I could re-live each of these moments. It's amazing how much was packed in during that first season. Like many viewers, I followed the series less and less after the first season, so of course all my favorite episodes were ready for viewing, without commericials and without waiting a week between shows.
In the pilot episode, you see why Felicity follows Ben to New York instead of attending Stanford. At college, Felicity meets Noel, her charmingly goofy R.A., Julie, a street-wise girl who needs a friend as much as Felicity does, Elena, serious and studious, but ready to cut loose, and Meghan, the wacky roommate, who never fails to bring Felicity down. Throughout the course of their freshman year, Felicity and her gang worry about finals, choosing a major, money matters, family matters, and, of course, matters of the heart. You fall in love with Ben and Noel all over again, and agonize with Felicity when she is forced to choose between the two.
Not only are all the episodes there, the pilot and season finale have audio commentary by J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves. The commentary was recorded after the series ended, but the two still give the viewers some interesting tidbits about the show and the actors. Too bad all the episodes don't have commentary--that's my only complaint.
If you loved "Felicity," buy it! You may think it's not worth the cost, but 24 hours (including commentary) of our favorite curly-haired co-ed is definitely worth it. Also remember that in the first season you see Ben with his awesome haircut, Noel wailing "Everybody Hurts," Felicity losing her virginity to Simon Rex, Jennifer Garner before her "Alias" days, and hear all of Sally's wisdom.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
After all these years, i still enjoy this one.


This picture is just plain fun and the older i get the more i like it and discover new things about it. My favorite character is the "child catcher with the net." Why can't there be someone like that in real life especailly with todays kids. But i digress.Even though i find the kids voice somewhat annoying, the sound that is on this DVD is really great. The THX 5.1 sound catches everything that was originally recorded for the highest highs to the lowest lows. The picture quality is excellent and the film is in it's Roadshow presentation with the Intermission.This film is a total JOY for all ages. And with the ever so talented Dick Van Dyke you simply can not get any better. Sally Ann Howes is a broadway gem of a star as well as the entire cast and somehow you get a found appreciation for Benny Hill who is really totally out of character in this movie. He's wonderful. This film is a classic and if you a bit down or sad, put this movie on for a great uplifting feeling.

ONLY ONE WORD FOR IT--GREAT


Not long ago, there was this dude down the street from me who used to sneak up behind me and jam a broomstick into the small of my back. It really hurt and I was helpless to defend myself. Then another guy who has a really weird sister showed me the way of Tae-Bo and it changed my life forever. Now when someone comes at me with a broomstick I just Tae-Bo their sorry behind into next week. I get a great workout and fight injustice at the same time. Soon the world will be mine.

Dances with Wolves - movie DVD cover picture
To memorize a three-hour movie, it must be good.


All the scenes when John Dunbar was in Indian country with the Indians makes this film so great. The film is mostly very peaceful but not boring, even though the film is almost 3 hours. The acting, costumes and scenery were fantastic. The film portrays John Dunbar's Indian friends in a very positive light. There is also a neighboring tribe that is more violent and warlike, whom they must battle.The only drawback I found to the movie were the scenes with the American Army. These scenes seem essential to the story, but the peaceful scenes with the Sioux are what make this movie. Luckily, the scenes out in the wilderness and in the Indian village dominate the movie. This movie is very long, but worth watching.

great video!!!!!


I bought this video for my three year old son - he would go pee pee on the potty but not poo poo. About 3 hours after he watched this video, on his own he walked into the bathroom, sat on his potty chair and went poo poo - and we haven't looked back since - this video is wonderful! - they use language that a three year old can relate to and the characters aren't afraid to use potty words such as pee pee and poo poo - it was a great investment!!!

Repo Man - movie DVD cover picture
Punk Rock Lives On


Repo Man is one the greatest cult movies of all time and also has one of the best movie soundtracks ever created. This film is not for anyone who does not have a slightly bizarre taste in movies. However, if you are a fan of cult movies or punk rock than this movie is for you. The story has to do with a young "white suburban punk" named Otto(Estevez) who loses his job and pretty much everything else. He gets hired to help a repo man with a repossession and is stuck for life. The plot gets more complicated when a lobotimized scientist shows up with something in his trunk that everybody seems to want for reasons unknown. Some of the highlights are the Circle Jerks cameo as a lounge band ("I can't believe I used to like these guys"), Otto's really stupid punk friends ("Come on let's go commit crimes" "Yeah, let's get sushi and not pay"), and the theory of cosmic unconsciousness. Punk rock and B-movies are two of the greatest things to ever come out of America ever and this movie captures them perfectly. This is one cult movie that truly deserves it's following. The soundtrack is as much a classic as the actual film and is a vital collection of LA punk (Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, The Circle Jerks etc.) Iggy Pop even performs the great theme. "The life of a repo man is always intense."
