Stories of Floating Weeds (A Story of Floating Weeds (1934) / Floating Weeds (1959)) - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
Another fine release from criterion....


Floating weeds is the first Ozu film I have seen in color - it is very interesting to see how this master of black and white decided to utilize colors in a very striking way. The story is, like most Ozu films, very simple - about daily life - and leads, eventually, to a course of dramatic emotional events surrounding a family. It is not nearly as sad as 'Tokyo Story' but makes you reflect just as much. It is also an interesting comment on acting - on and off the stage - as the father in the film pretends he is an uncle to a son who does not know that this traveling actor - is actually his father - who elected to live a travelling life with an acting group - instead of settling down to raise a family.
This is another great criterion dvd - featuring commentary from Roger Ebert - and a beautiful transfer of the movie - and the earlier 1934 version. Ozu is without a doubt one of my personal favorite movie makers.

boys dont cry


This is the most scary and frustrating movie I have ever seen. I had to FF my vdotape beause I was so scared. I think the leading character playing Brandon/Teena deserves the best actress. I truly think her character fits the best. The rest of them is very excellent. They all should deserve some winning awards. But, I would feel better if I knew the past and the family backgrounds of Brandon because that would make me have better connections with the movie. I also don't think the girlfriend did not know that Brandon was a woman. But, she probably did not reject it. Think about it like if you were her, and you were kissing him, would you know at all?

From Justin To Kelly (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Rock on, Justin and Kelly!!!


Totally rocking, dude!!! Kelly Clarkson is TOO hot, dude. You cannot believe that people, like, told me I wasn't cool to watch this. Ya, as if!!! You people need to get a freakin life and start livin la vida loca - like Justin & Kelly - and now Robert Jackson. I think Kelly carries the movie, but Justin has a certain something that elevates him above all others each time that he graces us with his presence upon the screen - I call it star power. Many want it, yet few achieve it quite like Justin does in From Justin to Kelly. Order it, like yesterday!!!

About Time!


It's so good to see that Golden Girls is finally available on DVD...I have purchased both series so far & they are just as good as when i watched them originally...it's so much better being able to watch them with a clear picture rather than from old taped versions that i have done over the years...can't wait for the rest of the seasons to be released!

Incredibly compelling


I'd never heard of this movie until a friend described it, and we later watched it. Incredible! The plot is simple, but the sub-plots most definitely are not. There is a lot of violence in this movie, make no mistake about it, but blissfully little blood and other unnecessary gore. Instead, I found it oddly compelling and philosophical, with a great performance by Ice-T. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of high action movies.

It leaves lots of messages! V.Good!


Well, I saw this movie in 1989 I believe. I rented it today Jan. 31st 2002. I understood it better although it touched my soul as it did before.In order to feel it I think in an old traditional family when the father/husband/man was in charge of it. This family and specially his wife trusts him and admires him! This was key: to follow him in his gigantic adventure! There was not the typical individualism that makes couples split. I had a father who followed his dreams. Thanks to that I have a better understanding of the world and its needs! And let me tell you I have always been a very happy person who follows her dreams! In real life we meet husbands that appear to be sweet but are authoritarian in things like budgets or personal issues. They do not drive us to the jungle though teaching us something so great as to have dreams and that they can come true!I love the movie.

A Night to Remember - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
Frightening and Fascinating


Unlike other film versions of the famous maritime disaster, "A Night To Remember" does not attempt to romanticize the sinking of the Titanic via fictional characters playing out a superficial and often implausible story--and demonstrates that the basic facts are far more fascinating than any soap-opera-bubble that can be imposed upon them.
As frequently noted, the film has a somewhat documentary feel that adds considerably to its tension. Less frequently noted are the remarkable performances of the ensemble cast, playing characters who fight to retain their integrity in the face of rising panic. Unlike the soapy 1950s Stanwyck version or the overblown James Cameron film of the 1990s, there are no easy endings for those who are trapped, no love recognized at the last moment or sustaining memories of brief shipboard happiness to float them forward through life: at the end there is only darkness and death--mitigated, sometimes nobly, by the human kindness and sacrifice. Powerful stuff.
