The Last Emperor - Director's Cut - movie DVD cover picture
Dazzling


I'm Chinese and this is one of the most accurate and wonderful depiction of the Chinese life I have ever seen from a foreign director. His superior understanding of the culture and customs of Chinese civilians are unbelievable. This is the story of the last supreme ruler of China, Yu Pi. He is confined within the walls of the Forbidden City of Peking for most of his childhood. Then he is overthrown by the armies of Chang kai sek and is forced to seek refuge in Japanese control. His attempt to reclaim power is in vain. He was considered a war criminal and forced to serve 10 years in prison with his brother.
Amazing in detail and broad in scope, this film well-earned its 9 Academy Awards. This unforgettable film never fails to deliever a blow to the hearts of the viewers. Buy the final director's cut, it's longer and well worth it...

The Greatest Sci-Fi Spoof Ever


If you have spent time watching B Sience Fiction movies and wanted to scream "Don't Split Up!" or "No! Don't go in that cave!" This could be the movie for you. "Mars Attacks" pokes fun at just about every clasic Sci-Fi movie... From "The Day the Earth Stood Still" to the main target "ID4", no one is left out! If you are into science fiction and love a good laugh, this is one you can't miss!

WONDERFUL


I would totally recommend this to any parent with children. I bought this for my youngest son when he was 2months old. He is now 4months and I turn it on while I am in the shower so I can have a few min. of peace! haha...I also have a 2 1/2yr old who loves this as well. He gets up and dances to the music and I have even heard him humming the tunes. This is awesome...

Star Wars Trilogy (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
IN DEFENSE OF GEORGE LUCAS AND THE SP EDITION


We are fortunate to be offered this brilliant set at all. I would like a copy of the original versions as a historical piece, but all things taken into account I feel that The Special Editions are superior visually. For instance the matte lines from the analogue age are gone. You must admit that the additions of the sunset view windows on Cloud city are stunning.These are Georges' movies and any improvements he wants to make are welcome. He is the creator and he wants to use better technology to upgrade his visuals to keep them from looking dated, and to make it closer to the vision he had for it in the first place. He does not wish to have the older versions shown to a new generation of people that would need to be told that the effects were good for their time. Accept it for what it is: A masterpiece. If we want creative control then we must first create something of our own.

That's Entertainment Trilogy Giftset - movie DVD cover picture
The greatest musical moments spectacularly glisten on DVD!


When it comes to sheer cinematic joy, nothing can compare to the glorious MGM musicals, and this new Warner boxed set of all three magnificent THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT! films is truly the most exciting DVD release of the year.

Each of the THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT! films is a special viewing experience, assembled with cleverness, style and panache. They make for irresistable viewing.

As if the great compilations weren't enough, there's a bonus disc with over five hours of extras! Vintage documentaries and TV specials are mixed with some more recent material, and a great assortment of additional outtake musical numbers make for an unbeatable package.

These new DVD transfers are quite spectacular. These films have never looked so great. The quality is astounding, better than ever before on video. The colors jump off the screen at you, and how wonderful to have them enhanced for widescreen on my big 16x9 monitor. The images are spectacular. Obviously with the clips being drawn from over 200 films, some are not as breathtaking as others, but overall I was knocked out. The sound is also very, very impressive.

The glory of Garland, Astaire, Kelly, & Co. live on in this magnificent boxed set.

WARNING: Be prepared to spend several days going through the material which has been meticulously and creatively assembled. You'll love it....and you'll end up watching parts over and over again!

A superb job by Warner Bros. all the way around. Gets my vote for DVD of the year.

Thursday - movie DVD cover picture
favorite Day of the week


I was gripped by thursday from start to finish. Thomas Jane is brilliant as Casey as is Aaron Eckhart as Nick. The script is excellent, mixing humour with classic 'tough guy' lines, such as;(as Glenn Plummer has a gun under his chin) Plummer:"Know what happens if I pull this trigger"?, Casey:"You repaint my ceiling". Casey's transformation from a tame 'house-husband' to a hardened criminal is brilliantly captured. At first it seems like mere anger but then you realise that he is capable of anything. Paulina Porizkova and James LeGros co-star as Nick's vengefull partners, who come looking for Nick and end up at Casey's house!Overall I would say this - try to look past the violence and instead look at the script and the acting and you'll see a gripping and powerfull film. Also, when my friend broke his arm he kept saying to himself "be like Casey. be like Casey". If 'Thursday' had such a profound influence on him that he looked to the main character for reassurance when he was in EXTREME pain, then it much be worth watching. At least so that you can come to your own conclusion.

Can I Go Now      - movie DVD cover picture
Can I Go Now- DVD single Jennifer Love Hewitt


Her music DVD "Can I Go Now," is one of the greatest accomplishments for Jennifer Love Hewitt. It puts together her acting and music talents. You get two see both sides of her career. Not only does it include the videos "Barenaked" and "Can I Go Now," but a photo album of her within the DVD. These videos are two of her hit songs on her album "Barenaked." The whole DVD is spectacular and it is great for such a low price. This DVD cannot be found in stores, believe me I've looked. If you a true fan of JLH you would by this single DVD it is the greatest!! I highly recommend it!

A breath of fresh air.....


This is not a movie to be judged on it's production and acting value or sound quality or the lack of the widescreen release. If you are a Christian with the Lord as your personal savior, this movie will put you on your knees. I was deeply touched thru out the entire movie. To have our Lord Jesus visit us just to simply say "Tell people I love them" was right on. If you are a non christian this movie should still be meaningful simply for the kindness of humanity value. I think we all would love to have a neighbor like Joshua live next door for a little while(if not Joshua himself(Jesus)).This is a must buy for all Christians and believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.

I Don't have a bloody Clue What To Call This Review


I am a great simpson fan. I have The Simpsons Season Boxsets 1-3. I have seen all the episodes in Seasons 1-7 and have only missed one in Season 8- The Twisted World Of Marge Simpson. Season 4 has got some really good episodes (eg. Treehouse Of Horror 3, Duffless, Homer's Triple Bypass, Selma's Choice, Brother From The Same Planet, etc.) But I hate waiting for the next boxset come out. There should bring out more than one boxset per year. Apart from that it's all gud.
