Prince - Live at the Aladdin Las Vegas - movie DVD cover picture
Comfortable Genius


This is footage of a man who has done it all and is finally comfortable with himself. He has surrounded himself with one of the finest collections of musicians possible (rivaling the Sign O' the Times band). For those who think the Revolution was a real band, listen to this. That was a record label calculation that just got in the way of the funk. This band is different. They make it seem effortless to produce astounding music.

The video and sound quality is somewhat lacking but then again it gives you the feeling that your peeking in on something special. The intro lets you know that this wasn't a longterm planned effort.

Funky without being nasty. Definitely worth the purchase.

A great John Ford film...


I own both the VHS and DVD editions of this film.
While the action, Indians chasing the stage, becomes the focal point of the film and it's story, I especially enjoyed the interplay of characters. The performances are among the best you might see in an "adult" western; many feel the first "adult" western. Claire Trevor and Thomas Mitchell standout; although Andy Devine and George Bancroft are excellent.
I can't help but wonder how crowded it must have been in the stage, seven adults and one new-born traveling to Lordsburg, New Mexico, via Monument Valley in Utah.
Much like "High Noon," you'll enjoy "Statecoach" even if you don't like westerns.

Cartoons are for CHILDREN (hint) and This Is Excellent!!!


Come on, folks, these are actually made for little people, not adults. This DVD is wonderful, pure magic that my 5-year-old loves. We don't have cable and he watches only DVD's and videos. He has a large collection, but this is one of his all-time favorites.PARENTS, if you don't need all the bells and whistles but buy for your kids and NOT because you want to be a child for life, then this is an excellent choise -- your child(ren) will love it and you'll have money left to buy another DVD or video.

EXCELLENT


This movie is great. One has to watch it just once to appreciate it. The movie is not only fun action with a great soundtrack but it is also has a deep and intricate historical plot. The hijacking in the movie is based on the hijacking of a real flight in the 80's that was flying from Athens to Rome and then on to New York. The characters are developed well especially the stewrdess who IS GREAT. The stewrdess is a real character and she is German which is key to her role. The whole scene when she is calling names from the passport is also based on the actual events. Don't let the fact that it is a Chuck Norris flick let you down this is really a great movie that you can enjoy.

Loved it !!


What ever you do,do not listen to the critics or reviewers
for CATWOMAN it was a good movie.About 2 scences did seem like
they were cut just a little,like the part when Benjamin Bratt
ran up hallies apartment in attempt to save her,
he got up those stairs a little too quick and the scene
where the cats where clinging and admiring her,I wish
they would of just let the scences play a little longer

This surely do not take anything away from the movie,it was
a great fun summer action movie for everyone and Halle did
a excellent job,felt as if you wanted to cheer her on yourself
in some scenes.Overall it was a great movie with a story
to it also and I will be buying the DVD when it comes out.

Thrilling


Finally finishing up the series, the last 3 episodes of Cowboy Bebop really suprised me. All of characters finally confront their pasts, and finally go where their fates destined. When I watched the final Episode (The Real Folk Blues - Part 2) of Cowboy Bebop, I was suprised.. There was a nice twist at the end, finally finishing up the twists and turns of the whole series. There was nothing to be desired at the end, everything has closure (as so many films/movies don't have), yet is open for infinite possibilites. The whole series can be summarized in one word. "Bang!"

Excellent


I found this movie to be a beautifully done flick. I remember going to the movies with my family to go see it. I was only 6 years old when it came out, but I remembered it. It also came on TV quite a few times, so I watched it then too. I recommend this movie for everyone to see. It's very compelling.

Mariah delivers for the fans despite what the critics say!


Glitter rocks! I was one of the few who saw Glitter in the movie theater, because I am a fan of her music. If you are a fan of Mariah's music, then I suggest you buy this movie. You hear her songs from the Glitter soundtrack play through-out the movie. I am a big Mariah fan, but I am also a big movie fan, so I have to be honest with you! Mariah is a natural-born actress in this movie, but the script is just absolutely horrible. The first half of the movie goes really fast...for example...(Wanna be a star, ok, wanna let me produce you,ok) I didn't like that part. The second half of the movie gets really dramatic and sad and I enjoy this part, because it shows that Mariah can act. Her performance in this movie is no better than Jennifer Lopez in any other movie, people just didn't wanna see it cause they thought it was about her...which it is not! If you love Mariah's music, then buy it, and also buy the soundtrack. The music is great and the soundtrack certified Platinum!!! Buy it...and let Mariah's DJ save your life!

You have to check out Crispin Glover


'Willard' totally creeped me out from the minute I saw Crispin Glover on the screen, and I loved it. The casting directors must be applauded for their perfection in casting Crispin Glover. He is the most brilliant actor I have ever seen (loved him in Bartleby, Charlie's Angels, etc....) There would have been no movie without Crispin and he is one of the best reasons to check out this witty and creepy film. Even if you think the movie [is not good], you will still walk away satisfied from seeing Crispin Glover and his talent.

The West Wing - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
head and shoulders above most television programming


I hate politics and avoid the news... but I LOVE this show. These characters portray the noble people we wish our elected officals were. The show brings up complicated and sometimes emotional issues, often voicing both sides of it, and reveals the real life challenge of actually passing lesislation or providing political asylum or taking military action. It shows the 24 hour nature of the Presidency, the personal challenges of a person and his family in that role, how he depends upon good advisors, and the myriad of ways that a good intention from someone in power can be thwarted by another or exchanged for a greater good.

Another appealing aspect is the way that the characters are developed... they are likeable, have flaws, have histories and their relationships with each other interesting. It's tv for the head and heart. The education is presented in a very palatable manner and the emotional content is almost never sappy.
