Eric Clapton: In Concert-Benefit for the Crossroads - movie DVD cover picture
Clapton having fun


This is a state of the art DVD production with great performances, The picture and sound quality are excellent. What is more important Eric and the ban seem to be having a good time, even Bob Dylan smiles at one point. What a band! I understand that a lot of footage shot at the show was cut from the final product, perhaps we can have a special edition with the complete show. If you like Clacton you will not be disappointed.

Truth or Dare


"LEFT BEHIND"
Action, suspense, intrigue and danger. James Bond? No, not Bond, but a foe more sinister than any that agent 007 has ever faced. Complete world domination rushes at mankind like a runaway locomotive and no one can stop it - alone. Superb acting and super action combine to make this a blockbuster movie. It's a must see. If you want to live forever, you MUST see this movie. There is only one who can save you and the rest of mankind from eternal darkness. But there is an imposter, a fake who wants to deceive and imprison you. Will you find the truth before time runs out? Do you dare to wait?

Jackie Chan's Who Am I? - movie DVD cover picture
A classic


Really this film is a lot better than Rush Hour, which basically is an American film with Jackie dropped in to give the film a twist. But Who Am I? is a ture Jackie classic. The action is brilliant and the plot is better than most of his recent films. I'm also lucky to have seen it on the big screen as it's just been released here at selected cinemas (although it deserves more). The beginning takes a little to warm up, even though there is still some action. But once the police get him it's action all the way, most notably the car chase and the excellent fights (especially the end fight). His stunts are all intact-the slide's great, and the humour is funny (standing on the bad guy's feet with the clogs and saying "that was good" is a fine point). All in all this is Jackie Chan all the way. Rush Hour doesn't even compare.

Dragon Ball Z - Frieza - Death of a Prince - movie DVD cover picture
tears of a saiyan


I think some of the series' best and most moving scenes arise in this one volume, mostly surrounding Vegeta's failure to reach the Super Sayain level and his death at the hands of Frieza.
I love this series, no doubt the greatest animated epic to ever be concieved, but at times it can lack in character depth during crucial and critical situations. However, I think Vegeta's stirring words as his life fled from him, Goku's reaction to his relative's death, and Frieza's contempt for the pair are crafted superbly. No doubt, in my mind, this volume contains some of the most astounding moments in the series and really gives us insight to the characters.

The Thin Red Line - DTS - movie DVD cover picture
Eerie, brutal and beautiful


I agree with another reviewer that this movie should be seen at least twice before you can review it. As with all masterpieces, some people like it and some do not. Terrence Malicktook a big chance and he succeeded. If you are looking for a conventional, yet very good Hollywood war movie, then see "Saving Private Ryan". It's a pity both war movies were released so close to each other in time. Both deserve an Oscar for best picture. Fortunately, this is not a flag waving piece of Hollywood Americana. I don't think Terrence Malick intended to pay homage to the US Army for saving the world from the Japanese. This movie is about the futility and horror of war. When you see the Japanese soldiers holding their dead comrades in their arms and sobbing like a child you realize that they are just as human and confused as the Americans. War makes all men brutal and equal. It is only the generals and *** kissing officers -except for Capt. Stanos-who are interested in Purple Hearts and promotions. The antediluvian scenes were Witt is seen to live in harmony with Pacific islanders, images which he cherishes and remembers throughout the movie, even during his last dying moments, are the counterpart of the brutality he sees during the battle. He is practically the only one who shows any compassion for the enemy. Some reviewers have complained this is a movie that philosophizes about war. That's what makes it so valuable. That "red line" that divides the sheer brutality of war and the awesome beauty of nature, the higher human sentiments of love and compassion and the lower brutal ones of hate is the same red line they see at the turn of dawn, when the peaceful darkness of the night brings forth the dangers of daytime battle. This is a grandiose film. Twenty years from now, "The Thin Red Line" will still be regarded as a masterpiece. Saving Private Ryan will just be another excellent war movie.

Lupin the 3rd - The Castle of Cagliostro - movie DVD cover picture
This movie is a sequel


I love Lupin 3. I love everything about it. From the classic mid-70's music to the bellbottoms. Caslte of Cagliostro is the best Lupin movie ever made, hands down. The subtitled version is great, but some might not like the dub. But I think most people will appreciate the new voices and brand new sound effects. But if I had to choose, it would be the subtitled version. I had to down grade this movie for the poor DVD. There are few extras on it! Are you telling me the greatest animtors of all time finally gets one of his greatest films put on DVD for the first time and you couldn't find a bunch of extras!? Come on. Surely they could have given a breif interview or series summary or atleast a photo gallery. The video and sound quality are good (even if there is no Dolby 5.1), but all I can say to Manga is that you better hope Miyazaki doesn't see this.

The best movie I?ve seen this year!


What a spectacular, spectacular! It is obvious why some just could not handle the bold expressiveness of this movie. It is so overwhelming! Quite an emotional rollercoaster ride. I love it!!! One moment, you're in party land, headbanging, high in absinthe...and the next, you are taken dancing in the sky, in love...I can go on and on, but I don't want to give out the whole movie. I had to drag my boyfriend to see it...but in the end he loved it too and even said that it's the best movie he has seen this year! His favorite scene was during the Hindi Sad Diamonds performance...the choreography was excellent. Baz Luhrmann again shows off his genius...who would've thought of that version of Like a Virgin?! Moulin Rouge may not have done well in terms of box office success, but it has a lot of creativity and life, and it shouts "BAM!" and sends a shockwave into your veins and stays in you for a long time...not many movies can do that!

Wonderful! Now where is Josie and the Pussycats?!?


It is great to have the Hanna Barbera cartoons coming out on DVD. I already have "Jonny Quest", "The Jetsons", and "Scooby Doo". Now I am waiting for "Josie and the Pussycats." I was so disappointed that the theatrical movie followed the original comic series instead of the cartoon. I hope someone will hear this and put this series on DVD soon.

Unforgettable, Mesmerizing


I believe that the review entitled "1999's Future Classic" says it all. It was panned by many critics because of the hype it had inadvertently built up. Critics, being self-conscious wanna-be filmmakers, want to be as original as they can be, so that they can be heard. The majority of them, after some dispute, finally settled on the Flawed Masterpiece category, along with American Beauty and Magnolia, cast aside in their minds to be settled and forgotten for a very long time. However, the consistently 'Kubrick' touch to the piece-with the smooth camera movement, surreal sets, and intense performances-will keep this film in everyone's memory for years to come. I have only seen this film once, and I plan to see it many times more with this DVD release. Though most intense dramas are only viewable a first time, Kubrick films surface the audience's desire to see it again. There is a seemingly infinite amount of information in a Kubrick film, and that is why I highly recommend the DVD.

A Home of Our Own - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent By Far


This is the story of a single mom and six children who rent and barely get by from paycheck to paycheck in Los Angeles. When her job is lost, she packs up the family and sets out in a 1948 Plymouth. She promises her offspring that everything will eventually be "buttoned up and beautiful". While driving through Idaho, with the old car about to quit before they do, Mrs. Lacey spots an old would-be house which was begun and then abandoned. She convinces the owner of a nearby nursery to allow her and the children to work for the property. To some of the children it's an adventure, but life for Shayne, the oldest boy, is miserable. He is humiliated by his school coach and is constantly in arguments with his mother. His mother's iron-clad rule is enforced by her use of his deceased father's old belt.
Another child whose character is richly developed in the film is middle son Murray. Indoor plumbing becomes his goal in life!
Most viewers will probably be very frustrated at the mother's refusal to "take charity" even when her children suffer-- the Christmas scene is especially heartbreaking. I would not spoil the final fourth of the film for you-- but will simply say that it is believable. In fact, the entire story is supposed to be a true one, as stated by Shayne, who narrates these realistic events set in 1962.
