CATS


Who out there can think of words to describe the pure magic that laces the air surrounding Cats? I'm not even entirely sure *why* such an aura exists, but something...something about Cats is pure magic. There's no better word for it. Those who haven't seen it won't truely understand, and even some who have won't know what I'm talking about. Be forwarned, there is hardly any plot to this masterpiece. If you're the type who likes to have everything handed to you on a silver platter, you probably won't enjoy Cats, and you have my pity. But, if you have a strong imagination and like to fiddle around in a universe rather than just sit back and observe, then more than likely you'll adore it. The characters are strong, but vague enough that you can add your own touches to make them whatever you want them to be. The music ranges from rock to jazz, to classic broadway tunes like the ever-popular Memory. Oh, and a special treat for dog lovers is included in the video! What I'm trying to say is, there's something for nearly everyone with a heart, a soul, and an imagination. Now...and Forever.

'Mean Girls' an edgy look at cliques


Teen star Lindsay Lohan is back! She has had success in the past before with big screen flicks 'Freaky Friday' and 'Confessions of Teenage Drama Queen', but in my opinion 'Mean Girls' is her best flick yet. Not only that but it is the best teen comedy I have seen for the longest time. Mean Girls was the #1 movie in America now since movies 'Troy' and 'Van Helsing' has hit theaters it is now #3. 'Mean' defiantly had success on its opening weekend with $24 million. The stars in this film are fantastic: Lindsay Lohan, SNL's Tina Fey, The Hot Chick's Rachel McAdams, Lizzy Caplan, TV's Once and Again's Jonathan Bennet, and newcomers Lacey Chabert and Amanda Seyfried.
The film takes place in Chicago where Cady Heron (Lohan) has just moved with her parents from Africa, her zoologist's parents homeSchooled her from age 6-16. Now Cady goes to new school and that is conveniently right across the street and tries to fit in. As she tries to make friends and no one will even listen to her she sits on the toilet to eat her lunch! Call me emotional but I started crying! After a couple days of that finally Goth Janis Ian (Lizzy Caplan) and gay Damien (Daniel Franzese) take her under their wing and they eventually become good friends. So one day as she is walking in the lunchroom a teen gut quotes "Is your muffin buttered, would you like someone to butter your muffin" and that would be Gretchen's boyfriend. That is where she is befriended by the meanest most popular girls in school: THE PLASTICS, Mean Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried), Meaner Gretchen Weiners (Lacey Chabert), and the meanest girl in school Regina George (Rachel McAdams). Then Janis and Damien have an idea to gather enough info to take down Regina George. So as every day goes by and Cady tells Janis and Damien all the rude and nasty things they say. But as Cady falls for ex-boyfriend of Regina Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) Regina pretends that she still likes him at the same time cheating on him. So they eventually gather all the info they need and have a plan to take down Regina George. So they decide that with out Aaron Samuels, Her beautiful body, and her army of skanks Regina would be nothing. So first they try to get Aaron to see Regina cheating on him. That eventually works and then they make her friends turn against her. And finally her sexy body goes poof and she turns into a slob. But while this is all going on Cady turns into a Mean Girl herself. After Regina falls Cady takes her place and becomes the new Queen Bee. But as she accepts to win Aaron over he rejects her because she is just like Regina! Cady looses Aaron, Janis and Damien as friends and eventually becomes the most hated girl on campus! But everything turns out the way it should be in the end!!!
I look forward to seeing Lindsay Lohan in her upcoming flicks 2004's Dramarama (WB) and next years flicks Gossip Girl (WB) and Disney's sequel to the Herbie movies which will be entitled Herbie: Fully Loaded, it will appear early 2005. The Herbie movie has said that Lindsay will need Nascar driving lessons.
If Lindsay keeps up the fantastic work she is going to be the biggest star in HOLLYWOOD!!!!

The Princess Diaries 2 - Royal Engagement (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Delightful!


"Princess Diaries 2" continues the delightful fairy tale begun in "Princess Diaries". Julie Andrews (Queen Celeste) and Anne Hathaway (Princess Mia) carry this film with help from a strong supporting cast. Princess Mia remains the young American woman from San Francisco, while growing into every inch a queen. Set in Genovia, "Princess Diaries 2" is enough fairy tale to be delightful, too much fairy tale to be believable, but with just enough of life to hold your interest. Suspend your disbelief and enjoy!

Independence Day (Single Disc Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
My Review...


Hi, I am sure you know of the plot by now but I will ive a short summary. Independence Day is about a LARGE colony of aliens who invade our planet. The aliens are relentless and they could be to much for us. So, the entire message of the film is unity amoung us, as humans. Will Smith, Harry Connick JR., Bill Pullman and a list of others star in the film.
My DVD Review...
WOW, I do not think I have ever seen on a DVD so much stuff. The first disc contains the Theatrical version and the Special edition with over 9 minutes of extra footage. The second disc contains mucho material. It is everything a DVD collector would want. I just wish a lot of other DVD's would contain the same.
What the Disc contains, but this is just from memory so I will not of listed all of them. An HBO special I think, hosted by Jeff Goldblum the star of the film, Inside ID4, very extensive footage on the making of the buildings, such as the White House, New York buildings and the aliens, that was a really great segment. Also, the spaceships were shown in their irst stages of development, on draft paper and then in the modeling process.
There were ALOT more, I suggest you should really view the DVD's. Even if you do not like the movie, the time and effort put into the second disc is just worth it right there. I would really recommend you see this DVD set and a note on the deleted plane scene to the directors, thank you, thank you! Just kidding.
Also, for the people who do reviews; Do you ever notice how you think what your writing is long, but in reality it is short?
Thanks for reading,
Ryan

Don't let them fool you


I'm writing this short review just because I saw some pepole trashed this movie which might discourge you to rent/buy it.
This movie is great , it is not hyped and doesn't have the big names "stars" but the action is very good , the cinematics is stunning buteifull and the plot and use of the flood motive to create an intersting enviorment for the story to take place is good enough.
There are no ground breaking ideas or special effects here but what there is is done very well and I've enojyed this movie alot although I missed about 15 mintues from the start .

The best of them all


George Lucas really has been able to do what every Star Wars fan wanted, he has started to complete the definitive circle of his lifes work on the number one story in the world, STAR WARS.
The Phantom Menace has shown how great the story of everyone's demise of where they ended up in A New Hope. This movie contains a line that everybody has wanted to hear for a long time "Obi-Wan Kenobi, met Anakin Skywalker". This is truely exciting on so many levels.

Un Air de Famille - movie DVD cover picture
"Dogs never disappoint you."


Friday nights are 'family nights' for the Menard family. Henri Menard (Jean-Pierre Bacri) operates the family's drab business, "The Sleepy Dad's Cafe", and every Friday, siblings Phillipe (Wladimir Yordanoff) and Betty (Agnes Jaoui)--along with their domineering mother--arrive at the cafe to spend a family evening together. This weekly event is supposed to be fun, but it's little more than a duty for the participants. On this particular Friday, it is Phillipe's wife, Yolande's birthday. Henri's wife, Arlette, is nowhere to be found. She's left Henri to "think things over." Consequently, Henri is in an even fouler mood than usual, and the evening that is supposed to be spent celebrating Yolande's birthday is spent in petty bickering instead.
Nothing very much happens in this film--and that's the way it's supposed to be. Director Cedric Klapisch turns the camera on, and the interactions between the Menards begin. Henri is the underachiever in the family, but then again, he assumed the unglamorous responsibility of the family business. Brother Phillipe is the Marketing VP of a large corporation, and a television interview sends him reeling into insecurity. The interview becomes a focal point of Phillipe's evening while he snipes at his wife and complains about his sister, Betty. Betty is busy hiding her on and off romance from her mother, defending Henri, and complaining against the manner if which poor downtrodden Yolande is neglected. Every comment from a family member becomes an opportunity to snipe about some old grievance, and during the course of the evening everyone is provoked into saying things they regret. "Un Air de Famille" presents the claustrophic yet disinhibited atmosphere of bad manners masquerading as an excuse for 'caring' about family members. The two outsiders here--Denis and Yolande emerge as the nicest, kindest people in the film. They remain spectators and victims of the Menard family dynamic. If the film feels like a stage play to you, that's because it originally was. This is a French language film with English subtitles--displacedhuman
