Curb Your Enthusiasm Vol. 1!!!!!!!!!!!


Larry David, co creator of the more main stream comedy, Seinfeld has gotten right back into tv with this HBO tv series. Many of the reviews for this DVD set have complaints about the show, not the DVD. If anyone does not like this show, it is because it's not main stream enough for them. They just dont get it. This is not your typical tv program. It's unlike many. Curb Your Enthusiasm is one of my favorite tv shows! And David is absolutely funny!

There are two opinions of this tv series. People either love it, or they hate it. And you know this because, the reviews either have 5 stars or two stars. Clearly, the 5 star reviewers actually know what they are talking about.

The one complaint I have about the D-V-D, NOT the actual series, is that on the cover, it says there is an audio commentary feature. I opened the package, excited, but only to find there was only commentary on ONE EPOSODE!!! Come on!

Besides that, this DVD is a good collectors item. It's not really a "must have" item for Curb Your Enthusiasm. Because if you check ahead, HBO airs the series from time to time, and on HBO On Demand. And I have seen all the eposodes on this disk. I wouldnt have purchased it, but I recieved it as a Christmas gift this year. But I am really satisfied with it, so I can dive into my collection and watch my favorite TV show any time I want.

Season One has some of the most classic eposodes in the seasons run so far! If you like good non-mainstream comedy, you'll love this DVD and the series itself!

Best Series Ever


I can say, without any hesitation, that Millenium was one of the most ground-breaking and though-provoking series ever to be had on TV. With the exception of the very poor last season, the stories were excellent and Lance Henriksen did a fantastic job as an actor.
The series explored issues that are rarely covered on TV such as faith, religion, and the concepts of good versus evil. And they did it without being for or against any particular faith.
One of the things I always liked was that the protagonist, Frank Black, never used violence to solve his problems. On TV, that is rare indeed!

A great dub!


Took Nippon Sunrise 22 years to release the "Tomino" Gundam series. The DVD is great to have, but the English Dubb can use some serious help. As of the show, first timer will have to settle for the 70's animation, but you must watch this series to understand the later series of Zeta Gundam, which is much better(good way to compare them is like watch the original Star Trek vs. the Next Generation). For those newbies, Tomino is the original creater of Gundam, and he later wrote the sequal which is called Zeta Gundam, Gundam Double Zeta, and Spin off movies such as F91 and Char's Counter Attack, and the short stories such as the War in the Pocket and Star Dust Memory. As of the new series such as Wings, G, X Turn A, and 08, those were written by other Nippon Sunrise screen writers, with the intention of creating more models and toys. Watch this series and enjoy it, and let's hope they will bring the Zeta Gundam series here in the near future, and give it a better dubbing job.

Cardcaptor Sakura - The Movie - movie DVD cover picture
Taking a step away from the cards for a breather


Sakura wins a Trip to Hong Kong! She, Tomoyo, Touya, and of course Yukito begin what was suppose to be a normal vacation. No Clow Card catching, just fun time with friends and Yukito-san! She even gets to meet Shaoran's beautiful mother and crazy sisters. Unfortunately, evil forces are drawing near, and a woman from Clow Reed's past brings relaxation to a halt, by invading Sakura's dreams, and ultimately present China. She seeks out the Clow Cards, but when she demands to know why Sakura has them, something more may be the problem. Will she save the day, as well as her Friends?
This is an absolute must for any Cardcaptor Sakura fan. It takes place after volume 9 (while Sakura is on Winter Break)
This Volume contains BOTH! the Japanese and American uncut Dub.This also comes out a week after volume 8, so it's ok to watch without worrying whether or not you're missing anything. The movie has nothing to do with the overall plot, but it's great!

Sixth Sense


I really enjoyed this movie. Rarely do I pay full theatre price three times to see a movie, but for this one I made an exception. The story line was well written and the cast was chosen quite well. It was full of surprises & suspence.

The Best Movie Trilogy Ever Made!


Lord of the Rings will more then likely be remembered as the movie of the 21st century. Or rather movie trilogy I guess. The fact that they were finally able to bring together this series live action is wonderful.The music, costumes, scenery, and what else has you. It all coincides. It's so close to the books. Not 100% but remarkably close considering how most book movie adaptations are blunders. This is a beautiful edition to the legacy that Tolkien has given to us all.

My favorite musical


I remeber when I was 7 and my dad made me watch this movie for the first time. I hated it. Now, as an adult myself, I love it. I am a big fan of musicals and this is by far my favorite. It has great acting and super songs. I own the CD and listen to it all the time too. I just hope that it gets to be released on DVD soon.

Jethro Tull - Nothing Is Easy: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 - movie DVD cover picture
Best Tull Footage Yet!


This is the `Holy Grail` of Tull footage ever released, and it is a must have for any collector. Ian Anderson as a young man, in his prime,a bundle of spastic energy. Hair flying, ratty -coat and knee high boots, he is a wonder to observe. Running around, jumping, conducting the band with his flute. The band is great, with perhaps the best lineup of their career. Anderson`s voice was very strong, and totally unique at the time. His flute playing is phenomenal, and how he keeps from getting winded is beyond belief! The sound and picture quality is great, and the cameras put you right on stage with them. All the live footage is fantastic, and worth sitting through some of the narrative from Ian. I find him interesting to listen to, and you can always skip to the live footage. At last I can show my friends what I have been talking about all these years. There was simply no band like Jethro Tull in their prime.

12 Angry Men - movie DVD cover picture
A Phenomenal Classic


Wow, this movie is a true classic. It is simple, yet sophisticated. It is without any action or violence, yet suspenseful and thrilling. This is the story of how one juror entertaining reasonable doubt about what the other eleven thought was a clear-cut case of "guilty as charged" was able to change the minds of the other eleven to vote "not guilty" instead. I will not reveal whether or not the accused was guilty indeed, for it will take away the suspense. You will certainly enjoy the 90 minutes of this classic movie as you yourself become a participant in the jury's deliberations and can weigh the evidence and consider the case for yourself: did he do it or didn't he? Is there enough evidence to send him to be executed, or is there reasonable doubt? See the agony and apparent evidence and counter-evidence these jurors went through--in the classic black-and-white format. This is real entertainment, folks!
