Once Upon a Time...When We Were Colored - movie DVD cover picture
Clifton Talbert's powerful prose


Al Freeman does great justice to Clifton Talbert's powerful novel. Clifton inspired me as an author. He used the first person narrative in such a humble manner. I have heard it said that only arrogant, self-glorifying people employ a literary style center with the word, "I." Yet, Clifton does so with such a sense of humility. His "I" illustrates the power being there, but in his work, virtually every person he describes is made to seem more bold, virtuous and sincere than the author himself. In Al Freeman's adaptation of this excellent literary work, the humble and sincere sense that imbued Clifton's novel comes to life. Genuine, sublime, personal and powerful, this is a movie guaranteed to touch your heart.

Christapher Lee... the king of all vampires. plays Stephan Corsscoe a Werewolf hunter out to distroy Sturba... the qeeen of all werewolves in Transalvania. and like it's other 6 predecesors, I am delighted to say that it is a privlage to own all of these on VHS tape. the following is on DVD. THE HOWING. HOWLING II YOUR SISTER IS A WEREWOLF. HOWLING III: THE MARSUPIALS. HOWLING IV: THE ORIGINAL NIGHTMARE. HOWLING 5: THE REBIRTH. HOWLING 6: THE FREAKS. AND HOWLING 7: NEW MOON RISING on VHS ONLY. and I will be ordering right away if and when it comes out on DVD. as for part 2 I love it the werewolf transformations are excellent. the cast is great.

Destroying America (Skateboarding Film) - movie DVD cover picture
this video rules


Destroying America, brought to you by Hook Ups, is one of the best skateboarding video's after Birdhouse's The End, and Osiris' The Storm. This Video is jam packed with awsome moves, great bails, and the funny (sort of) plot line. It could have been the best would it have had the bad side of people like Tony Hawk and Jeremy Klein that The End did, but it is still the skateboarding video you should get you, a friend, or your kids this season.

The Devil's Nightmare / Messiah of Evil - movie DVD cover picture
Great Combo


Both these films are great (yet widely unknown) horror flicks that deserve more attention than a lot of trash that sells better. I've been a huge fan of The Devil's Nightmare for years, and Messiah of Evil was a very pleasant surpise as well. I'm biased, and so I only have good to say about both of these movies. BUT, I have to report one thing about the quality of The Devil's Nightmare on this DVD: I have collected several cuts of the film over the years and I find that the audio here is not nearly as good as even some video versions I've got (the widely available Redemption version, for example, has better). The picture is ok (really no better than Redemption's video), and as much of the scenes as I've ever found are also there, so if you weigh in the fact that you can have Messiah of Evil as a bonus, this DVD isn't too bad a deal.

Led Zeppelin - movie DVD cover picture
First off.....


....disregard the last idiot from Auburn's pointless slander review. Yes, I said idiot, because even non-Zeppelin fans often recognize and respect the bands scope of influence and impact. This moron is far too ignorant to understand that probably 80% of the "hip and current" crap he listens to(which probably includes Disturbed, Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down and other earsores) would not exist had it not been for this extraordinary band. And since when is a band's age have anything to do with musical longevity("Only old people remember Led Zeppelin")? Oh well, enjoy whatever tripe mainstream radio tells you is "rocking", you loser.
Now onto the dvd....it is simply what we've been waiting for. Raw, rugged, aggressive and intense, it highlights a period in rock music far more exciting and fun than any overhyped garage rock today can put forth. Seeing the intensity of the live Zeppelin experience is unforgettable, from Bonzo's frenetic drumming, to Page's painful dark blues riffs, to Jonesy's solid bass and keyboard work and Plant's strong vocals. This is a must for any fan and some of the best live footage of any band, anywhere.

The Great Santini - movie DVD cover picture
Great film


Forget the unfortunate title: THE GREAT SANTINI is an unforgetable film. The fierce familial relationships--especially between father and son--are riveting and understandable. Robert Duvall, who has always been one of my favorite actors, turns in a performance so gritty that you hate and love him. The classic scene in which his son beats him in driveway basketball is uplifting, considering you are rooting for the boy. And then it turns into one of the most horrific--psychologically speaking--scenes I can remember.
Blythe Danner, always dependable, sparkles here, in spite of her less than enviable position. Filmed with care, written with the precision of an expert pilot, THE GREAT SANTINI is a unique film that will hold your attention and stay in your memory.

Freaks - movie DVD cover picture
Great movie, full of compassion for the "freaks"


I thought Tod Browning's movie was tremendous. It was very short in length but told a great story. The banding together of the "freaks" to defeat the cruel acrobat was wonderful, as was Mr.Browning's willingness to show the human side of these circus performers. We especially liked Hans. Definitely a movie worth seeing.

An All-Time Classic!


Our family first saw this movie on vacation at the beach and we haven't stopped watching since. It is indeed one of our top five movies of all time. The writing is fabulous and most songs get stuck in your head. I just hope it doesn't die on VHS. Where's the DVD?!

Tucker - The Man and His Dream - movie DVD cover picture
Tucker gives hope to all of the dreamers out there!


One of Jeff Bridges best performances! What a great script with many great lines to savor. The story is based on Preston Tucker's life and struggles to design his own car based upon his own great innovative ideas and that of his team. His ideas were so great that it caught the attention of the big 3 when he proved that his ideas had tremendous value. Then the big 3 got nervous and did everything in their power to squash him like a little bug, but nobody could ever squash Preston's dreams! This movie will inspire anyone whose ever had a dream to make it in America! A must for any collection.
