The Incredibles (Widescreen 2-Disc Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Absolutely wonderful!


Pixar continually amazes me, always performing well. This, a unique superhero slant, has done just as well as the other Pixar movies, if not better. With five movies, they are five for five.

But I really write this review for an extra that is included with the two disc set. The small extra called Boundin' is wonderful. The lyrics, the animation, everything, is just wonderful. As an adult I love watching it and don't mind watching it over and over again. As a child my niece loves it. And my nephew, as a 6 month year old baby, is captivated by it, even laughing out loud at times. No matter your age, I would recommend buying just for this little clip. It is pure genius.

Sideways (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
DVD Extras Await...


First off, the basic story and the superb acting have been covered by most everyone else that has posted reviews here.

So instead, I thought I'd cover the "secret" items on the DVD. There are actually about 30 minutes of fun items that await you if you can find them! Unfortunately, they can't be found by just clicking on an item on the menu. Instead, you have to jump to a subsequent "title" on the disc to see them.

So what are you missing? 2 fun items.

1) A fake behind-the-scenes video on production 'overrun' costs that is about 16 minutes long. In this short feature someone is hired by 20th Century Fox to drive (and use his videocamera) to check out the set of the SIDEWAYS production area. His mission: find out why the movie is over budget when those working in the movie are putting in shortened work days. As I stated, it's all done for fun and it's worth a look.

and

2) A series of funny bloopers and shots of the crew on location, running about 14 minutes in length. There are quite a few fun items here. Definitely worth a look.

Why these were made so hard to find on the disc I don't know, but if you've got the DVD, pop it in and find them. They're very enjoyable.

He's found her!


Halloween H20 is what I would like to call the official sequel to Halloween II. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode only to find that Michael is not just after her but also her son.If you happen to be someone who has not seen Halloween 3-6, it wouldn't be a bad idea to skip from Halloween II to Halloween H20 considering that this movie takes place 20 years after the events of Halloween II. This film probably has more of what the original Halloween fans are looking for but the previous sequels are still worth viewing.WARNING: Do not let the ending of H20 fool you!

I love this movie


I have read the other reviews that are available for this film and I am left feeling a bit confused as to why only cynical people write reviews. It is important to remember that film is a form of entertainment! As such you will not find a better film. If you are looking for a good time-a film to watch with friends late at night when its raining, this is your film. Does this film challenge the soul or the intelligence-no! But that is not its purpose. Get this film because it is a fun ride and very entertaining. Leave your literary criticism aside for the two hours-relax and have some fun!!!

Wonderful Popcorn Film


This movie fulfills the most basic goal of a film. It entertains. It is a true horror film in the Universal sense that it doesn't take itself that seriously. Neither should the viewer. There are no messages or high lofty goals at work here. It takes all of the story of the first mummy and moves on with itself and doesn't look back too much. You are going to want to check you reality at the door with your coat and just sit back and enjoy the show.

scooby is a doo


This movie does a great disservice to the cartoon we all know and love. They gave this film a PG?! What were the MPAA thinking? It's more of a PG-13. Too dark and scary for kids and too much cleavage and toilet humor. The cartoon versions of Scooby and the Gang would NEVER be like this. The only thing that saved this movie was Matthew Lillard's character of Shaggy and the CGI Scooby Doo (and the appearance by Sugar Ray and Mark McGrath). I hope Mike, Crow, and Tom Servo at "Mystery Science Theater 3000" get a hold of this and rip it to shreds. I wish I could give this negative stars but the review thingy will only go to one star.

The Truman Show - movie DVD cover picture
Good Family Film


While this is cerianly an interesting movie, and one could argue that this is Jim Carrey's best role to date, on the whole the movie is just an average movie. What is disturbing though, is Paramount's blatent false advertixing of the producr. I bought this movie believing it to be in the wide screen format. The packaging clearly states that this movie is supposed to be wide screen,. let me assure you though that what you get is the pan and scan version. This is a new format, but this sort of foul up is not acceptable.
