A Single Girl - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best French films I have ever seen!


This movie is fantastic. I had to watch it for a French class (I am a French major) and was reluctant at first to even bother paying attention. But the movie is very, very unique (filmed in real time except for a jump ahead to two years later) and exceedlingly well-filmed. Virginie is a fabulous actress (and very brave to be filmed in such a manner), and she portrays the problem of wanting to be a single, independent woman and mother in France. Her portrayal is very important to contemporary French society, and she lives up to the task. This movie is honestly one of my top five favorite French movies, and I have seen many!

Excellent sound, visuals, great way to flex DVD system


There isn't anything groundbreaking about this DVD. What is does have is a great selection of techno music and all their respective videos. If you have a sweet sound system this DVD will really push it to it's limit. High points are the Chemical Brothers, Josh Wink, Roni Size, and the Crystal Method. I'm looking forward to Vol.2!

Falling From Grace - movie DVD cover picture
ALL AROUND GREAT ENTERTAINER


John Mellencamp is incredibly talented all around. I thought the movie was very entertaining and was an open window into a world unknown. This movie shows a famous life from a point of view that "normal" everyday people have no understanding. I enjoy John Mellencamp no matter what it is he is doing, whether acting, singing, etc. He is an all around great entertainer. I look forward to any new projects he brings along. I would definitely recommend this movie to everyone, especially Mellencamp fans!

Very cute video


I think I love this story more than my nieces do. Its simple, entertaining and the "That's why I give thanks" songs are catchy and very sweet. Its a simple story about how its not how many things you have that counts, its how you appreciate them that really matters.

Can we do anything to speed this up ???


Why isn't this series on DVD yet ?? When you envision all of the money being spent by television studios to release all of the myriad shows currently coming out on DVD, it really makes you wonder who is making the big decisions. There are many thousands of die hard fans of this series who would gladly fork out the cash to get this show on DVD. With the SciFi channels recent (and inexplicable) pulling of the show from its rotation, fans have nowhere to go to see this excellent show. I for one, miss being able to watch a show that I both learned from and thoroughly enjoyed week after week.Its a shame that whoever owns the distribution rights to this, one of the best televeision series ever made is unaware of the loyal fan base that exists for it, even this long after the show ended.

The essence of The Beatles


This movie tells the story. Read between the lines, the conversations between John and Paul, the looks they give each other, the clothes they ware,, the music. This movie has it all. If you have any interest at all about the Beatles do not miss this. The roof top concert is not to be missed, it is classic , timeless,and unforgetable. Watch this movie closely and you will see why The Beatles are the largest selling act of all time. ENJOY!

Samurai X - Betrayal (Rurouni Kenshin) - movie DVD cover picture
The best of Kenshin


SamuraiX:Betrayal is without a doubt one of the most touching pieces of anime that I have ever seen. The animation is exquisite, the musical score is nicely orchestrated, and the plot and tragic ending were extremely well done. I must say, Trust served as the introduction to what would become the events in Betrayal. Overall, this ranks among the best of the best on my anime list.Howerver, I reccomend watching at least some of the Rurouni Kenshin television series, if not all of it.And if you are already a Kenshin fan, it goes without saying: BUY THIS!!

Luther - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent treatment of the great Reformer!


I saw this movie in the theater, loved it, and made a note to buy it when it came out on DVD. I had to wait more than a year for the DVD, but it was worth the wait. This film is very well done, moves briskly, tells the story it needs to tell, never gets boring or talky, and is just very entertaining. This isn't just for Lutherans, but for everyone interested in church history or, for that matter, the history of western civilization.

This is probably the best version of Luther's life available. There was a 1975 film starring Stacy Keach (who did an excellent job), but that was a transcription of a stage play by John Osborne, and thus feels very stage-bound and non-cinematic. The 1953 version I've never seen and thus cannot comment on. But this latest version, with Joseph Fiennes, Alfred Molina, Jonathan Firth, Claire Cox, and the late Sir Peter Ustinov, I can recommend very highly.
