Best movie in a long time

I'm amazed. Hollywood can still produce a quality movie! There is little to dislike here. The screenplay, directing, dialogue, cinematography and acting are all superb. I have never been a Kim Basinger fan, but I even liked her in this movie. The only negatives I can think of is that the bad guy's identity is revealed a little to soon, and I was sorry to see one of the characters that I liked killed off early (both occur in the same scene). Still, this movie is can't-miss.

Great Movie

This is a great movie. It doesnot have the same story line as other teen flics, like most of them do. This is because it is a modernized version of Shakespear's "Taming of The Shrew." I never get tired of it. Most movies these days are ok, but you wouldn't see twice, ya know. This movie isn't like that I could watch it over and over and never get tired of it. And even if you don't like the movie, you chics out there can stare at Heath Ledger the whole movie, cause he is SOOOOOOO HOT!

Life affirming, life changing

I first saw this film in my early 20's and am now approaching 60. Over the years I have returned to it just to see if it still held the same truth. It does. In anticipation of this DVD release I reread the book and it was an interesting lesson in book to film adaptation. The spirit is the same and credit for that must go to the director the actors who approach this - the greatest of Kazantzakis' novels with reverance and passion. Certain elements of the episode with the church are "leavened" for 1960's tastes and limits but the rest rings true. After all the awards and praise for acting and cinematography, it remains a film to share with friends and cherish for its humanity and truth. Zorba was a real person, by the way, and maintained an active correspondence with Kazantzakis until his death in the early 1940's.

Hercules The Legendary Journeys - Season 1 - movie DVD cover picture

I have waited forever and now it is finally here. I have been waiting for these excellent movies to come out as well as the first season. The movies are so good that they had to come out with a series and the first is what got everyone hooked. I am so excited and cannot wait until they arrive. with all of the extra features it will be even better than the first time I watched the show. All I have to say is that someone must of been listening to me months ago when I bought a boxed set from amazon. I had bought 2 of the movies, Young Hercules, The xena trilogy and the animated Hercules and Xena and I was so dissappointed to find out that there was nothing else until now. I am sooo EXCITED!!

Overlooked Hughes

This is one of the funniest movies ever made - and probably one of the more underrated comedy movies as well. I grew up on John Hughes: from 'Uncle Buck' to 'Ferris Bueller' to 'Wierd Science' (too many others to list), I've probably seen his entire body of work. This movie is as funny as any of the others. John Candy and Steve Martin were the prefect combination of opposites. Hughes and Candy worked especially well together, given their track history of movies ('Uncle Buck', 'Great Outdoors', and this).
This movie is especially good to watch during the holiday season. It's part of my family's staple of Thanksgiving and Christmas movies. And if you're ever spent time stranded in an airport trying to get home for the holidays, this movie is even funnier. Watch this movie at least once during each holiday season!

I ain't complaining!

Hey, the stuff on this DVD is better then what is available on the 2 previous editions. A commentary and featurette make it a worthwhile DVD. Deleted Scenes, who cares? They were deleted for a reason! Great movie, better DVD, and sell your previous one to pay for this one!

Go Tigers is great documentary!

I saw this film at the Sundance Film Festival, it's first showing in the country. As a Massillon native, this does document well the city's passion for football.
If you are a football fan, it is an interesting must see about high school football and a small midwest town.
