The Women - movie DVD cover picture
CAN'T WAIT!


Although this movie hasn't been released on DVD yet, I have it in VHS. Can't wait for the release on DVD. I have loved this movie for years. Watch it AGAIN every once in a while when I need a good laugh & just want to "get away" for a while. ALL performances are terrific & the story is great. I agree with a previous reviewer that I don't understand either why Roz Russell didn't get the acknowledgement she deserved. I am also waiting impatiently for the release of Auntie Mame on DVD. Any doubts about The Women should be forgotten. Buy it!

Excellent Film!


As father of a severely autistic boy, I enjoyed very much Cuba Gooding Junior's portrail of a developmentally disabled man who just wanted to be part of a community. Gooding's character becomes mascot of the town high school football team, as he gains acceptance from the team, he still has to battle with the stereotypes of the conservative towns folk who think this "freak" has no place in our town.
Good study of human nature the best and the worst too!!

Erin Brockovich - movie DVD cover picture
Wow!


I was expecting an awesome movie from the moment I saw the trailer and I was completely wrong - this movie is amazing! Julia Roberts comes out sexy, tender, funny and feisty. Her best role ever in her whole entire career!
Your gonna love Roberts as Erin Brockovich, a mother of 3 who has been divorced twice. She has $17 in her bank account and she is willing for a job. So who else to bother but her lawyer? She pleads for a job and gets it. Erin then goes investigating and finds real estate files are mixed with other stuff. Erin takes action and finds out the water system is making people ill in her small home-town.
Un-missable, amazing, I am very sure Erin Brockovich will be on my 2000 Top 10. Totally sure.

10 Minute Carb Burner - movie DVD cover picture
Absolutely Perfect


As someone who depises cardio, this is the perfect workout for me. In fact, it has me so spoiled, I can't bear to do any of my previous workouts.

I love it because it doesn't waste any time. By minute 3 I am sweating. And with 5 different workouts, it's hard to get bored. Michelle is an excellent instructor, and knowing it will be over in 10 minutes motivates me to work harder.

My favorite is the third workout which uses pylometics. The first one is also great and a great add on to other workouts. I also enjoy the fourth bootcamp style one (it also works your abs). The last one is more toning than cardio and great for those time crunched days.

That said there is little instruction as to proper form, really no warmup and little cool down, and moves very quickly in order to maximize time. Therefore it may not be the best for beginner exercisers.

Now, Voyager - movie DVD cover picture
Bette, Beautiful!


Never thought of as being a drop dead beauty Bette Davis proves she truly was in this film. Now Voyager paints Davis as the comlpete package; they give her brains and an atitude of self assurance that just won't quit! But for one of the rare times in a film staring Davis. Davis' self assuredness is not the act of inner happiness but inner turmoil. After being denied true love in her younger days by an over protective mother Davis'grows sheltered and has a nervous breakdown only to be nutured by Claude Rains who turns Davis into an opulunet dame of society with a heart of gold or in other words her true self. With her new mindset Davis soon finds her self in love Paul Henreid but their love can not be Henreid is married and has a child who is in the same position Davis once found her self in. This is when the film flies. To see Davis turn in a magnificent portrait of an everyday woman turned mysterious lover is to watch one of the greatest performances on celluloid. The whole look of the film is mesmerizing it looks like a foggy dream as if Davis is still frumpy and unloved but living out a fantasy in her head with handsome men, amazing glamour (thanks to drop dead gowns by O. Kelly)and jewels. The last hour is hearbreaking as Davis turns into the parent that truly loves Henreid's daughter. The one bonds besides Davis' and Henreid's love that intertwines them. A film of this ilk has yet to be recreated and never will because a woman of Better Davis beauty will never exist again!

Miyazaki 3 Pack (Spirited Away/Castle in the Sky/Kiki's Delivery Service) - movie DVD cover picture
great choice for the maya-saukie burgler...


Spirited Away: Spirited Away, a movie from Hayao Miyazaki, was a joy to watch. My family and I have watched it 2-3 times since we've bought this 3 Pack and it is just great! The movie itself is amazing, the artwork (animation) is brilliant, and the voices for the characters all seem to fit well. The story is a great story, perfect for children, but some scary moments with a character named No Face. I won't spoil the movie experience for you - so I will let you read the product description from other people if you'd like...

Castle in the Sky: Castle in the Sky, a movie from Hayao Miyazaki was a blast. My family and I enjoyed this movie also, it seemed to get the little ones a little bored because the movie does "drag" just a bit it seemed like, but its great if you have the patience for a movie. The movie was definetly 5 out of 5 stars!! Excellent.

Kiki's Delivery Service: Kiki's Delivery Service was our #1 favorite movie as we seen it. It was fantastic, the music was great, and the story is just great too! I'd have to say I was surprised with this movie being so well, after hearing a negative review from a friend.

Overall, this Miyazaki 3 Pack is an excellent choice for anybody who loves beauitful animation, beauitful storyline, and a price not to to high considering you get 3 fantastic movies. You will want to probably see other Miyazaki movies, which I still have to do after purchasing all of them that Disney has took a part of. Good luck, and I hope my thoughts help you in deciding if the Miyazaki 3 Pack is a choice for you.

The third season of South Park is funnier than ever. This is a review of season three's episodes and NOT on the DVD box set that has not yet been released.
The season gets 5 Stars over all rating.
Rainforest Shmainforest 5 Stars - This is part one of an unofficial two parter. Gust voice Jennifer Aniston. The boys get sent to Costa Rica (Someone that rated this said Puerto Rico, not a true fan if he can't even get the location right, I'm sure he'll revise his review when he reads this) by Mr. Mackey to sing in the kids choir "Getting Gay with Kids". The group gets lost in the Rainforest when a reptile eats their guide. Cartman saves the day.

Stan is stuck in Mr. Mackey's basement with Butters, Pip, and Dougie during the Meteor Shower Party. The FBI/ATF thinks it's a cult party and they try to break it up.
Jewbilee 5 Stars - This is part three of an unofficial three parter. Kyle and Kenny go to a Jewish scout camp. This is the same night as the Meteor Shower.
What makes this an unofficial three part series is that all three episodes are on the night of the Meteor Shower, all four boys are in one of the three episodes and the FBI/ATF is seen speeding to Mr. Mackey's house in all three episodes.

Are you there God? It's Me, Jesus 5 Stars - Jesus is upset that no one cares about him anymore. Cartman thinks he is having a period because he's bleeding out of his backside. He rubs it in to the other boys saying that he has hit puberty before them.
World Wide Recorder Concert 5 Stars - The boys come up with an outrageous plan to get revenge on some New York kids who made fun of them. The plan involves finding the brown note, a note that when played make you loose control of your BMs.

Tigerland - movie DVD cover picture
SUPPOSE THEY GAVE A WAR


Set in 1971, TIGERLAND is a harsh, gritty, ultimately tragic look at the agonies of training to go to war. Director Joel Schumacher who must like working with Colin Farrell (Phone Booth, Veronica Guerin) uses a documentary style to enhance the realism of this brutal movie. Farrell burst onto the scene in his fierce portrayal of Boz, a flippant anti-war, anti-authority figure who ultimately turns out to be a fierce and strong leader. Matthew Davis (Below, Urban Legends) gives an equally impressive performance as Boz' friend, Paxton, an idealistic college grad, who wants to write a book about the war. Along with these two leading roles, the supporting cast is equally superb: Thomas Guiry as the misguided Cantwell; James McDonald as the sadistic Sergeant; Clifton Collins Jr. as the emotionally drained Miter, and Cole Hauser as the troops' leader at Tigerland. The sparse musical score is likewise laudable.Not an "uplifting" movie---it's hard to forget the Vietnam "war", and knowing that many of these characters would probably die in vain is discouraging.Excellent, mainly for the superb ensemble acting.
