Jingle All the Way - movie DVD cover picture
Christmas Mayhem!


Last minute shopping has never been so much fun! It's an exhilarating experience that so many of us have gone through for our children. I say, why don't you forget shopping for Harry Potter toys or Legos, just buy "Jingle All the Way" for the whole family to embrace! The movie has the Jehovah known as Arnold Schwarzenegger (he alone should be the only reason why you should purchase this Christmas delight). Sinbad, yes, the man who brought you such hidden treasures such as, "Houseguest" and "First Kid". Comical! The late Phil Hartman whose legacy will live on forever and an annoying little brat that wants a TurboMan doll. Go away kid! But, aside from the runt, let me just tell you that Arnold gives a hearted performance as a loving, but ignorant father searching for the most popular toy for his son on Christmas Eve. He runs into Sinbad, a postal worker, Robert Conrad playing a silly police officer and many insane parents! An amazing experience that many of us can relate to! I remember fighting the crowds to get myself the Tickle Me Elmo doll! Wow!

Kagemusha - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
Exactly like almost any other Kurosawa movie


Exactly like almost any other Kurosawa movie; in other words, "brilliant".

The scripting, acting, shooting, and directing are all absolutely wonderful. It is a film filled with emotion, pulling strings with both the delight of a child and a man's sacrifice for another man he never knew.

Though it is certainly not as lighthearted (or fun) like Kurosawa's Samurai flicks (Yojimbo, Hidden Fortress), nor as epic as Seven Samurai, nor as thought provoking as Rashomon, Kagemusha holds a very prized place on my shelf of DVD's.

An overview of the greatest film ever made


Science fiction, fantasy, and action adventure usually have no place in the upper echelon of great motion pictures but I think the world should make an exception. This film, in my opinion, the greatest movie ever made. In my 20 years of living, I've seen films with more action (Blade, Speed, Eraser, etc.) better special effects (Stars Wars series Terminator 2 Lord of the Rings) and a better dramatic plotline (Time to Kill, Shawshank Redemption, Arlington Road) but this film is perfection and I believe this film should have gotten more credit than what it did. The original is the masterpiece and I really would like to see this franchise rejuvenated maybe with M. Night Shymalgan as the director and the screen writers for the recent film From Hell and the action choreographers from Crouching Tiger but there is no way that I'm gonna have my way so if you've never seen this masterpiece, buy it today and add it your collection.

Great movie!


This is one of the movies that I re-whatch the most. It is one of the few movies that actually puts you into a working science fiction world, Star Wars is one of the few other movies that do this. The Special effects are fun and origional, same with the futuristic inventions and costumes. The only problem is Chris Tucker can get annoing and the story goes a little downhill after the Deva scene.

Top That!


I watched this as a teen and I fell in love with it. It has unique elements, eg. Louise Miller's best friend daring her love interest to "top that" in a rap lip sync. I love Robyn Lively's transformation in this film. It was very similar to Sandra Bullock's in "Love Potion #9"; from tripping dorky nerd to sophisticated glam queen. I give it 5 stars for the valuable morals it presents and its creative presentation of those morals; Louise Miller's bravery to be herself regardless of what powers she has. This is the type of film that I believe should be on network television as the movie special for children on Saturdays. I wish I could purchase it without the spanish subtitles. But I'll probably purchase it anyway. When you love a film, you love a film.

Alien 3000 - movie DVD cover picture
one of those movies you simply MUST own


I bought this dvd cause the cover's alien was extremely similar to the alien in the original Alien movies. BIG MISTAKE. L.Lamas was in this movie for may be 10 mins. tops. The Alien is nothing like the photo on the cover and it, of course is nothing like the Alien movies. The cover said a "new breed of predator" This movie is the stupidist movie I have ever seen. IT IS THE BIGGEST WASTE OF MY MONEY AND MY TIME. !!! If there was a way to do it - I would rate it in the minus ( - ) instead of the + column ...SO DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE...

Auntie Mame - movie DVD cover picture
"Life is a banquet...!"


What can I say about Auntie Mame that hasn't already been said?A wonderful story from the novel by Patrick Dennis! A great cast! And a scipt that you can never get enough of! Truly one of those movies that you can watch over and over and always enjoy! Rosalind Russell was marvelous as the title role! She shined like the true star that she was!! She was more lovely and charming than any other that I have seen!! However, to say any more about her and her in this movie, I would have to write a million words! I know that some people feel that this movie feels too long, but if you keep your eye on our Roz the whole time, the movie won't feel long enough.
The supporting cast was perfect. Forrest Tucker, Coral Brown, little Jan Handzlik, Fred Clark, Lee Patrick, Willard Waterman and countless others were wonderful and all fit their parts beautifully!
Not forgetting those behind the camera:(To name a few) Brilliant directing by Mortan DaCosta, and a smashing screenplay by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Lovely costumes and sets, radiant color, and to top it off with an unforgettable musical score comosed by Bronislaw Kaper!
My point being that Auntie Mame is, by far, one of the best movies ever made! And when you watch it, you remember what life is really all about...

Revenge - movie DVD cover picture
Simply the best!


I was 18 years old when I watched this movie...and it left me crying at the end. This was one of the greatest love stories I ever seen, after the "Ghost" with Patrick Swaizy (spel?). I was clicking through movie channels on TV and happened to see this movie on. So, I left it and watched it. I decided to give it a chance since I like Kevin Costner a lot as an actor. And guess what? I watched it till the end and could not even take my eyes of the screen. If you love romantic stories -this is the movie for you. It is rated R but when it comes to love scenes they are elegant and refined and will only leave you thinking that there is another side to making true love. I also enjoyed the great music throughout the movie, it defined its style. I will have to say "Revenge" will make you think psychologically about different human relationships. This will not be the movie to laugh, but to cry. I was very surprised that it had only 2.5 stars, I guess it is just one of those "untouched and undiscovered" movies. This is definitely worth watching, you will not regret and you will have good time. Every actor did an exellent job playing his/her part. The only thing I did not like was the ending, but maybe this is the final twist to the plot- maybe this is how it should be. To understand what I mean by "it", watch the movie and be sure you have a kleenex box near by!

Colossus - The Forbin Project - movie DVD cover picture
Underrated technological thriller still carries a punch


Regardless of how dated its technology or special effects are, COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PORJECT is still a very well made science fiction/suspense drama with a very chilling punch.
America and the free world have put its nuclear defenses in the hands of a supercomputer, designed by Dr. Charles Forbin (Eric Braeden) called Colossus. But not long after that, the Russians switch on their own machine for similar purposes, this one called Guardian. And when the two machines develop an intersystem language for communication (one previous reviewer said this was a dry run for the Internet, and he may have been more right that he thought), soon they develop into one technological behemoth that believes it can preserve the future of the human race better than fallible humans.
This precursor to such technological thrillers as WESTWORLD, JURASSIC PARK, and A.I. has gone underrated for years for various reasons. Its cast wasn't exactly well known in 1970. Its story has a very downbeat and chilling coda. Furthermore, Universal did not know how to effectively promote the film in the wake of Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY; the Colossus/Guardian entity in this movie, like HAL in the Kubrick film, becomes a central part of the story.
Now, however, COLOSSUS can be seen as a highly suspenseful prelude of things to come. It is superbly directed by Joseph Sargent, with a script by James Bridges (who later directed and co-wrote THE CHINA SYNDROME) from D.F. Jones' 1967 novel "Colossus." Albert Whitlock's imaginative special effects top off things. Though not widely seen in 1970, COLOSSUS: THE FORBIN PROJECT should now stand as a very pointed message film about technology overtaking and possibly even enslaving Man.
