Ringo and His All-Starr Band - movie DVD cover picture
Cut short!


I saw this concert in person and was a little disappointed that the DVD wasn't the entire concert! They have plenty of room on the disc. Shiela E. didn't even sing one of her two hits. I still recommend buying this disc and really recommend that you see any of the ringo all starr band concerts in person - it's a heck of a fun time.

Pink Floyd - The Wall - movie DVD cover picture
the only rock video worth anything


The Wall is probably one of the greatest rock-&-roll movies of all time. It tells the story of a character named Pink(The name is sorta a joke about the name of the band Pink Floyd.). Pink's childhood was a traumatic one, his father died in W.W.2 and was raised by an over protective mom and was beaten by his school teacher. Later he became a rock star and got married to a wife that cheated on him. The movie shows how Pink completes his "wall" that he started as a kid. This "Wall" would shut him off from harsh reality and make him "Comfortably Numb". "The Wall is a stunning film filled with intense and striking visuals and animation. One such scene shows an anmated dove exploding into a german eagle or a British flag collapsing to make a bloody cross during the song "Good bye blue sky". It's amazing soundtrack will have a firm grip on you as you watch. The high ammount of symbolism will also keep you thinking. The interesting thing is that "The Wall" is based on the life story of it's composer Roger Waters. If you love the film "Tommy" you'll love Pink Floyds The Wall. -Ren

Fun Movie!


I'm sure you've heard this is a great movie - it's true! The storyline is great, characters are wonderful, comedic timing is perfect - and there's no cheezy musical interludes you'll find in every other Disney movie.

In fact, this hardly seems like a children's movie at all. It has a PG-rating, which means the action and storyline is more exciting than something you'd find in a G-rated movie.

This is a double-disc DVD set and they've really tried to include as many extras as possible. The Behind-the-Scenes footage was a little disappointing (mostly Brad Bird cracking his crew up or arguing with other producers) - I had hoped for some more in-depth footage of actually animating the film, whereas this is more of how the film was "produced" and "managed".

This is something worth owning.

Guffman's it!


I need Christopher Guest to make 2 movies a year for me. He makes me laugh more than any other actor/director. If you've done any theatre in your life, you will laugh your head off. Christopher Guest writes best in the documentary form, and his ability to tap into "special interest / people in their passion" slice of life is unsurpassed. Best in Show, This is Spinal Tap, The Big Picture (not a docu-drama)...these shows all show that Guest is best!

If it Floats and is Made of Wood, It is a Duck or a Witch


For a British modern comedy troupe from the 1970s, thier films stand the test of time quite well:
A spoof on the Kinghts of the Round Table and Camelot (and every other King Arthur story), THG begins to tickle you right off with the whole 'coconuts instead of horses' issue. This running gag is only a small bit of the film, but you remember it. The same goes for every off-center bit, from the powerful wizard named Tim to the logic by which one determines if a witch is made of wood. Thinking man's humour, this is.
But before I scare off you simpler types, let me add that I've watched this with my 12 year-old nephew and he thought it was hilarious. That's another thing; this film does not warrant an 'R' rating. Doesn't now and certainly didn't back then, which makes me wonder what sort of gits were sitting on the panel of the MPAA at the time (as opposed to the silly twits sitting on it now).
Ah, bugger them all with the Holy Handgrenade of Antioch...

Totally Awsome!!!


When I went to see this movie I thought it was going to be lame knowing that most people wouldn't want to put Alexander's sexual oreantations into the film, but they did and I thought that it was perfect! They told the TRUTH about Alexander and nothing fake just to get a better review from dumb critics. The only thing that upset my by seeing the movie were the viewers! I sware! quote from some chick who walked past me as we were leaving "...he shouldn't be called Alexander the Great he should be called Alexander the Gay" I can't believe how low people can be sometimes. The battle scenes were wicked! They could totally compair to the battle scenes in Troy unlike the critics say. I think the only reason it got such a low rating was because it showed people the ture Alexander one with his homo/bisexual feelings.

The Greatest Comedy Ever!


I think I have figured out why the quality of this film is so heavily disputed: It is a comedy without jokes. Everything onscreen, from the characters to the sets to--especially to--the dialogue is so incredibly amusing that many folks cannot seem to comprehend what the film is doing. I'll enlighten those who have yet to enjoy the majesty of this film: It isn't cracking mundane, vulgar, stereotypical gags like every other film, it is reinventing humor, redesignating what is funny, what it takes to make the audience laugh. You can't watch five minutes of this film and find it humorous, because everything about it is an experiment in new and interesting ways to amuse a crowd; obviously they can't please everyone, but for me the film has become my all time favorite comedy.
Humor, as defined by the Coens, is more obscure than you or your Webster's considers it. For them, humor is an all encompassing showcase that cannot be taken apart into simple categories of performance, and script, and intelligence--and yet all three of these succeed well beyond most other films, as the Coen brothers are perhaps the most inventive in the industry today. Because the funny aspect of the Hudsucker Proxy lies in a perfect amalgamation of every element of the film, it disappoints those people who are looking for "one moment in time; so they can say right here, right now; this is it." With the Coens, this is impossible, since it is always about the sum of the parts rather than the integrity of a single aspect at a single moment.
But even beyond the humor of this film, I cannot help but praise it incessantly. Visually, as usual, it sets a stunning image, achieving a style that is entertaining in itself. The dialogue, whether you consider it funny or not, can be deemed nothing but intelligent and witty. The performances are dead-on and borderline eccentric/absurd, for what the Coen brothers are famous. The direction is always superb--and proof positive that even the direction plays a major role in the "jokes" of the Hudsucker Proxy, watch the camera during the Lounge Singers performance; the single greatest shot in the film has no dialogue and not even one of the main characters, and yet it punctuates the intended frivolity of the entire picture.
Some have commented that the viewer has little affection for the characters. To everyone their own, but MY own is that I TOO heartily fall in love with these characters. Tim Robbins is the clumsy everyman that any humbled human will see in himself; Jennifer Jason Leigh is our ambition, and tragic despite the darker side of her story. I'd go even so far as to say I like Paul Newman's character, whom despite the evil way in which he is portrayed, models our lowest and greediest selves. And so, while many contest the characters to be too inconsequential, I say they are the driving force, relating the viewer to himself in new and impossible ways amidst a superbly entertaining script. Again, some call the script pointless, but truth be told, I find this plot to be more well developed than most of the Coen brothers' other works.
And through all of these traits, Hudsucker takes the cake as my favorite comedy of all time. There is just something incredibly inventive, humorous, and intelligent in every single shot, every single word, every single expression and mannerism that the talented cast, crew, and filmmakers have put on the screen. There is a gift in everything to be witnessed, as every individual part is perfect--and perfectly implemented, since the final product far exceeds the sum of its parts. In short, from the minutest detail to the overall scheme, everything about this film pleases in new and unexpected ways that intend to spoof--and appear to--but really reinvent what it means to make a comedy. Take care to pay close attention to what this film offers, as I hope others take note and observe the magic it possesses; The Future is Now!

The House of Exorcism/Lisa and the Devil - movie DVD cover picture
EERILY ENCHANTING HORROR MASTERPIECE.....


One of Mario Bava's most hypnotic and weird horror films begins with Lisa, a tourist, becoming lost and disoriented after strange encounters with a man who resembles a mural of the devil she has seen with her group. The man is handling a lifesize mannequin of another man she had a weird encounter with who claimed he knew her. She accepts a ride with some odd people in an antique car that breaks down outside a mansion with even odder people inside including the butler who is the man she saw with the mannequin that resembles the devil in the mural. Once agreeing to spend the night she is subjected to madness, murder, necrophilia and nameless terror that propels her to flee the next morning only to encounter a group of children who say she is a ghost. Finally boarding the plane for home, she finds the other passengers to be the people she just encountered in her bizarre adventure only they are all now mannequins. The pilot is noneother than the butler/devil. Telly Savalas is perfect as this enigmatic stranger and Elke Sommer is fine as Lisa. Bava imbues this film with surreal atmosphere that plays out like a nightmare. His trademark flourishes with color and set design are vividly on display here. Truly strange story will keep you going from start to unbelievably weird finish. A truly unique film experience that demands repeat viewings. A cult classic by anyone's standards.
