Widespread Panic - Live from the Backyard in Austin, TX - movie DVD cover picture
Another great WP DVD!!


Truly great playing. How cool is it that they have someone like George McConnell to take over lead git? I really enjoy his playing. And the addition of Randall Bramblett's sax is icing on the cake.
running time 157 minutes, recorded 7/20/02.
The jam with Luther Dickinson is unbelievable.
Sorry, haven't watched the extras disc yet.

Cat Ballou - movie DVD cover picture
Wonderful western film spoof, with an amazing soundtrack too


Cat Ballou is a movie spoof unlike any other, and a great parody of the Western film genre. Jane Fonda appears in one of her most playful film roles ("Barbarella" is another light and funny Fonda classic), and Lee Marvin gives one of his finest film performances (he won his Oscar for his dual roles). Add to this mix a wondrous soundtrack, with Nat King Cole and Stubby Kaye as minstrels of sorts who stroll and sing throughout, making the film almost seem like a musical; an outstanding supporting cast including Michael Callan (who later appeared on TV's "One Life to Live"), and Dwayne Hickman (TV's Dobie Gillis), and the result is this hilarious, thoroughly entertaining film that was nominated for five Academy Awards (Marvin was the sole winner).

Catherine Ballou (Fonda) is a recently graduated-from-training schoolteacher returning home to live with her father on his ranch, but he is gunned down upon her arrival. She enlists the help of a loyal ranch-hand, a couple of outlaws, and most notably, a has-been alcoholic gunman by the name of Kid Shelleen (Marvin) to help her get revenge. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable film that still stands up today, and Lee Marvin stealing the entire film in his amazing dual role performance as both Tim Strong and Kid Sheleen. Lee Marvin alone makes the film well worth seeing.

The dialogue is great. Take this exchange as an example:

Jackson Two-Bears: "Kid, Kid, what a time to fall off the wagon. Look at your eyes."
Kid Shelleen: "What's wrong with my eyes?"
Jackson Two-Bears: "Well they're red; bloodshot."
Kid Shelleen: "You ought to see 'em from my side."

I was thrilled when the widescreen special edition of this long-time favorite of mine came out in 2003, and on DVD. I have the soundtrack on vinyl, but I have always wished that it would come out on CD; Nat King Cole is one of my all-time favorite singers, and his rendition of "They'll Never Make Me Cry" always makes me...anyway. This film still hasn't lost any of its humor or fun with the passing of time, and stays on my personal "top ten list" of great comedies.

Something Wicked This Way Comes - movie DVD cover picture
Classic story of good vs. evil


I saw this movie upon it's debut in theaters several years ago and it remains one of my all time favorite horror films. A classic story of good vs. evil. In this case, evil comes in the form of Mister Dark and his Pandamonium Circus.Your every desire can be fulfilled, but, at what cost? This film is a must see for young and old alike.

This movie ought to be rated hazardous to your health!


When I saw this movie in the theater I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants. My friend, who has asthma, had to take hits off of his medi-haler after some of the scenes as he was laughing so hard. _South Park_ is crude, scatological and some of the best satire on the planet. Those who discount _South Park_ are those who don't that children are basically asocial little monsters when they can get away with it. It is this understanding by Parker and Stone that makes this show and the movie so funny. I can remember doing similar things when I was a kid. Stone and Parker also have a great appreciation for movie musicals, this movie manages to pay homage to, in a satirical fashion, every genre of musical theatre from Rodgers and Hammerstein to the overblown and maudlin stylings of recent Disney musicals and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Rory Gallagher - Irish Tour 1974 - movie DVD cover picture
MEMORIES ARE MADE OF THIS.


Irish Tour the film.What can one say.This film depicts what we have been listening to these past 28 years on the vinyl record double album then titled Irish Tour '74.To be honest if you come from Cork City,like I do it makes the film that little bit more sentimental.Viewing old footage of Cork City and remembering these shops when I was younger just like Rory,it brings back lots of fond memories indeed.The film is fantastic in so far as we get to go backstage with the band in the dressing rooms,tuning the guitar for Rory,the old bottles of Guinness being drunk,and the band hanging out with their old buddies in Cork.We see Rory and Donal walking the streets of Belfast in the height of the troubles.Probably what stands out for me really is the great relationship two brothers shared.It must have been some buzz for both Rory as the performer and Donal as manager to successfully steer his career from these early,almost primitive days in 1974 to what he finally achieved before his sad and untimely death in 1995.It's obvious they had a special relationship.The concert footage is also a great insight into the Ireland of that particular time.It's hard to explain to people outside of Ireland,but what the Gallagher brothers(the original Gallagher Brothers) were doing back in those days was the start of something huge.Rory has influnced U2 along the way,among others.This film is a must have for any self respecting music fan,let alone Rory fan.Do yourself a favour,go out and buy it before it's all sold out.

Wes Craven's New Nightmare - movie DVD cover picture
The best of the entire Freddy series!


Some big spoilers ahead.Read carefully!
If you ask me,this is the best of the whole series.I liked the NOES series,but I wasn't really a big fan.The first was only OK,the second a little better,3 pretty cool,4 not bad,5 OK,6 entertaining,but weak.I was excited when I heard about NOES 7,but when I went to see it,it turned out soooo much better than I thought it would. The story is extremely imaginative and creative. Instead of mindlessly slaughtering teens on Elm Street (which got very old),Freddy terrorizes the film makers who created him and tries to get his revenge on Nancy (actually Heather Langenkamp). I absolutely fell in love with this,and if you ask me,this is by far the scariest of the series. I mean,the idea of Freddy being a real person,is just terrifying.He looks really cool in this one too and looks soooo much better than in the first six NOES movies.His new bio-engineered claw looks awesome and makes his old glove look like a child's mitten.His new style of make-up rocks! He looks really dark and is badder than ever.The special F/X blew me away.The confrontation at the end between Freddy,Heather and Dylan in the Mayan temple is really incredible and the ending is the kind of ending Part 1 should've had.I really don't have any complaints here.Wes Craven realized what was wrong with the first six movies and improved it. Freddy's awesome new look,kick a$$ special F/X, an incredibly high scare factor and an incredible ending make this the best Freddy movie ever.Buy it now! Rated R for "gory" violence and very little profanity.

A good film that Madonna haters love to slack....sad


This has to be the best thriller ever made. I just love Madonna. She may be far from the naughty stage of her career, but that doesn't mean her fans can't look back and enjoy this piece of work. I recommend that you listen to the Erotica album, thumb through the Sex book, then watch this movie---Madonna could put Viagra out of business. Only prudes and those foolish (but well-meaning) Republicans could possibly dislike Madonna. A+
