A Nightmare on Elm Street - movie DVD cover picture
Character and script originality make Elm Street a classic


With this movie began my love of horror. Robert Englund's twisted humor and evil appearance made "Nightmare on Elm Street" the 80's horror classic. I can't forget to mention Wes Craven's pyschotic imagination and stunning originality which have set the standard for supernatural slashers ever since. The sequels have all paled in comparison to the original with only Englund's presence giving them any attention. "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th" may have come first, but the character of Freddy Krueger makes Micheal Myers and Jason fade into the crowd of mindless slashers. Freddy is one of a kind and so is "Nightmare on Elm Street".

Lost Highway - movie DVD cover picture
Like Being Trapped In A Dream Scenario


I enjoy watching this movie at night. This way it feels as though you are trapped inside of an amazing Dream Scenario that you can't find your way out of. That is why this movie is one of the most entertaining films ever made. You can lose yourself in its atmosphere, like being in a trance that you hope you never have to leave. This movie, like all of David Lynch's movies, is refreshingly original. You will never find another movie like this ever. This is one of a kind. Don't try to figure out just what has happened. You are left just as confused as when you started, but that's the nature of it. The mysteries aren't revealed and are open to analysis, but trying to pick it apart takes away the magic. I like it when a movie leaves you breathless and curious. This way you can watch it again, and again. It never gets old. This movie may not be for all tastes, but for those who appreciate David Lynch, this is the most fun you may ever have when you watch a movie.

The Ice Storm - movie DVD cover picture
Refutation of the Sexual Revolution


Set in 1973 upper middle-class America, the Ice Storm profiles two families that are ensconced in the Sexual Revolution, evinced by "key parties," where couples bed whomever takes their key in a hat, have affairs in order to find self-fulfillment, and in general pursue the Cult of the Self, all the while ignoring their children whose neglect and neuroses fester in this movie to a climactic scene that you'll have to see in the movie. The Ice Storm is a sad film, full of cold, icy images and suggests that the Sexual Revolution was a fraud, a false storm that swept people away with its inane promises of self-fulfillment and happiness. Like so many great American films (Mulholland Dr. and Boogie Nights come to mind), the Ice Storm examines the Faustian Bargains we too often make and the perdition that must follow.

Lost Souls - movie DVD cover picture
NO [P] SOUP FOR YOU!!!!


Starring my favorite shoplifter, Winona Ryder, Lost Souls is about the Devil, those who worship him, and those who seek to stop him. A man has been marked to be taken over by the Devil come to earth. Soon. A group of priests and Ryder work to stop Lucifer. Ryder's character had previously been inhabited by demons, and ever since, she sees things. Despite some sometimes dark makeup, Ryder has never looked lovelier.
Although made on a shoestring in Canada, this movie does not have a cheap or amateurish look. The director, Janusz Kaminski, is Steven Spielberg's favorite cinematographer (Schindler's List, Saving Pvt. Ryan). This is Kaminski's only movie so far as a director, and his ability to create a terrifying atmosphere without reliance on special effects, may remind you of M. Night Shyamalan. Although Ryder is the only big name in the cast, some wonderful faces are on display, most notably John Hurt and Philip Baker Hall, as two very different kinds of priests, and Alfre Woodard in a memorable but brief, uncredited turn, as a psychiatrist.

The Messenger: The Story of Joan of Arc - movie DVD cover picture
WONDERFUL!!!!! What more can I say?


I completely love action/war movies. One night when I went to Hollywood Video, that's what I was exactly looking for. I found "The Messenger" sitting on the shelf in the action section. I read on the back that Tcheky Karyo (I love that guy!) was in it so I decided to rent it. At the time, I have only heard of Milla Jovovich. When I watched it, I was left breathless. Milla delivered an outstanding performance as Joan of Arc as well as all the other actors including Tcheky Karyo as Dunois (of course). This movie is definitely a must-see. I can't wait till the DVD comes out!

What do people mean no character?


There is plenty of character and plot development in episode 1. It shows the very beginings and only hints out some of what you are to find later. It shows the rise of Palpatine from a lower beuracrat on his way to one day becomiong the evil emperor. There is much story here you just have to pay attention and look beneath the surface. A beginning is a very difficult time, and this movie does a damn good job of it. Starting a legend from a few small pieces. They will get better.

My Two Cents on the Sixth Sense


The only word that can describe this film is AWESOME! I've actually seen this movie four times with various friends and relatives. Believe me, you'll get a kick out of watching others watch it for the first time! The Sixth Sense contains a beautiful balance of action, horror, and surprise! All of this is supported by outstanding cast performances. The ending will knock you off your feet! I can't wait to get my copy!

Duplex - movie DVD cover picture
Hysterical...Duplex is a winner!


Alex (Ben Stiller) and Nancy (Drew Barrymore) play a young couple with hopes of having their own home and starting a family. The dream of owning a home becomes a reality when Realtor, Harvey Fierstein, shows them a beautiful duplex in Brooklyn. The duplex is everything they could have hoped for, especially since the second floor will make the perfect nursery, but there is one little problem... the elderly woman living on the second floor. But, as Fierstein explains of the woman's age and failing health, Alex and Nancy decide they can live with the tenant while they try to get pregnant.
Upon moving in the building the elderly neighbor is sweet and kind, but things soon change. Alex begins work on his new novel, complete with a short deadline, but his work day is constantly interrupted with requests by his neighbor. Things escalate from bad to worse as the old woman's craziness spreads from affecting their home, to their jobs and eventually to the police station, as one cop takes a quick disliking to Alex and Nancy. As the couple reach their breaking point they resort to drastic measures to get the old lady out and that's when the fun really begins.
`Duplex' is hysterical. From start to finish the film is filled with twisted laughs leading to a surprise ending. Most of the gags are side-splittingly funny, especially the Riverdance scene...I have not laughed this hard at a movie in a very long time. Director Danny Devito has created a dark comedy that is a winning mix of `Throw Momma From The Train' and `Meet The Parents' with great performances from both Stiller and Barrymore.
Anyone looking for an original, funny comedy should look no further...'Duplex' is a winner!
