Deeply Moving....We are ALL more fortunate than we realize


I just happened to see this DVD is passing at my local Best Buy. I read the back and then put it back down and then saw it again and thought, what the heck, I'll give it a try. Now, I can't tell people enough about it. No matter what you have going on in your life, watch this movie. It puts everything into a whole new perspective. WOW.....the ending was stunning, never did I imagine the way it ends.

The monumental end of season 3


was, imho, as good as animation gets. All ReBoot fans must own this DVD, and the 3 which preceeded it. The Mainframe Strolling Players alone are worth the price of admission. Let's hope seasons 1, 2 and 4 are also released on DVD!

Heartworn Highways - movie DVD cover picture
Whew!!!!!! What a treat


This is a film that won't get much press, and many will miss. Make no mistake, this is a raw, underground masterpiece. Sound Quality is excellent, and this footage is RARE. I recently read the Steve Earle bio "Hardcore Troubadour" (not a bad read-4 stars) and several times it talks about the jam sessions at Guy Clarks's house. I could only visualize the magic from those mid 70's get togethers. This dvd captures those actual moments. Steve Earle must be under 20 (and hard to recognize). Many other artists also. Guy Clark does a great "Desparadoes Waiting For The Train". One full hour of unreleased music as an extra, is a real treat. This is a sleeper, not to be missed.

Best Movie Ever


This is probably one of the best films I have ever seen, definetely my favourite. It helps that Travolta's my favourite actor though. He delivered a better than fine performance and deserved at least one academy for the movie. A story of a ordinary man who became the smartest man on earth overnight on his 37th birthday after witnessing a beam of light which knocked him to the ground. A great story with a very moving ending. I've never liked Travolta as much as I did in that movie, two thumbs up! I by far reccomend this movie!

Star Trek The Next Generation - The Complete Sixth Season - movie DVD cover picture
Stewart's Season


By the sixth season of Star Trek: TNG, the characters had gone through many changes- and the writers, through many ideas. I thought that season six would contain the decline of the quality of the episodes, and that new, unique ideas would be thrown to the wayside as writers focused their efforts on Deep Space Nine. Instead, Star Trek: TNG managed to continue being one of the best shows on television, largely due to the excellent performances of Patrick Stewart.
"Chain of Command, Parts 1 and 2" contain what I consider to be some of the best acting from Stewart ever. Picard is tortured for days by the Cardassians, and Stewart plays the role of the victim perfectly. Not only did Part 2 contain some of his finest performances, but it actually managed to convey a message as well. It focuses mainly upon the roles of the characters. The Cardassian who tortures Picard and tries to break his will is left himself a broken man at the end of the episode, while Picard attains true victory by never giving in. An entertaining, powerful episode.
However, this was only one of the many amazing episodes that season six showcased. "Relics", which featured the return of Scotty from the original Trek, was great. "Schisms" put an eerie but interesting spin on the whole "alien invaders from another dimension" idea. "Tapestry" was another episode that made use of Stewart's amazing ability as an actor. John de Lancie guest starred as "Q" in that episode, and forced Picard to relive events in his life. "Face of the Enemy" finally gave the Romulans some action again after being shadowed by the Borg and the Cardassians. "Starship Mine" was probably the most "action-packed" episode of the season, and "Timescape" was another interesting episode involving being stuck in a moment in time. Finally, "Descent, Part 1" lacked the bang of most season finales, but wasn't all bad - after all, it did involve the Borg.
Overall, season six had episodes that really shined, despite suspicions that it might not.

Billy and Benboo:  The Monsters and the Magic Wand, Learn Mandarin Chinese Beginner Level 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Learning a new language can be easy and fun!


I watched both the level 1 and level 2 videos with my American-born elementry school nephew and pre-school niece.The video was appealing to them because it's like a cartoon video. The scenes in the video are very visual and focused, it's directly related to the dialog, so it's very easy for children to understand what the video is teaching.
The music and songs in the video are also great! I love the tunes, they are very catchy. The children learned it really fast, and soon they are singing along.I also like the fact that the song lyrics are made up of phrases from the teaching material, and repeat itself over and over. This helps the children to learn through repeatition.
My nephew and niece are both attending private after school program to learn Chinese. I saw far more progress after watching the videos for few weeks, than they going to 1-1/2 years of language school. Plus if I watch the video with the kids, I know exactly what was taught in the video, it's much easier for me to start practcing with them. As oppose to going to the language school, which I have no idea what they are teaching, therefore it's hard for me to start a conversation in Chinese with them.Also the materials from the video are related to things we would normally encounter in real life, so there are many occasions to take the opportunity to practice the vocabularies.
Lastly, the story of all the videos are centered around Billy and BenBoo, the two main characters, and their family, so you'll be familiar with the characters after the first video, and easy to move on to the next. I especially love the adorable dog Ben Boo, he's so playful and brings so much energy!
Thanks Language Tree for making learning so much fun!!! I can't wait to see the next video!

This Movie should have won Best Picture!


What can I say that hasn't already been said? Pixar does it again a wholesome family film that both the kids and adults will enjoy. It would be so easy to fall into typical movie plot lines with this movie, but it does not. It is a great mixture of action, comedy, and family values (without being preachy).

Spectacular Musical Experience on DVD


There's no other word to describe this movie other than SPECTACULAR! Coincidentally, the musical being written and performed in the movie is titled "Spectacular, Spectacular".
This movie made me realize how talented Ewan and Nicole are. They can sing very well, even better than some so-called professional singers!
Now on to the DVD...
This one is definitely worth buying. There are lots and lots of extra features. And besides the ones mentioned on the cover, watch out for some hidden extras (easter eggs).
This is a true 2-disc-set, with the entire movie on Disc 1 and extra features on Disc 2, unlike the disappointing "Pearl Harbor" DVD.

Female Masturbation : Every Woman's Orgasm is Unique. - movie DVD cover picture
Complete ecstasy and extreme pleasure.


I received Female Masturbation: Every Woman's Orgasm is Unique and I'll have to say that it is truly splendid.
I love the music and also the fact that it stops playing after Susan starts masturbating. Not one moan or groan of pleasure is missed and believe me this woman is in total ecstasy.
One of the many things I love about this tape is how you can see her genitalia (and Susan, you really have gorgeous ones) go from a relaxed state to a state of total engorgement as she masturbates. The different colors that her genitalia take on is just breathtakingly beautiful and she is so engorged and seems to keep getting more engorged with each stroke of her clitoris.
Her urethral sponge is so visible and her contractions all through the tape prove that this lovely creature is in a state of bliss as she takes herself up and down the mountains and valleys of pleasure. She takes a break at one point and resumes masturbating. Toward the end of the tape, it appears that she is stimulating the entire shaft and hood of her clitoris with her thumb and forefinger. Very erotic since during the majority of the tape her finger seems to be directly on the clitoral glans. Also the forefinger of her other hand slightly enter her entroitus and is so beautiful.
She is in complete ecstasy and it is easy to see that this is a trained woman who can make her orgasm last and languish in this extreme pleasure for as long as she desires. I can't help but say again how absolutely beautiful her genitalia are and how engorged she gets as she masturbates.
Yes, this is female masturbation at it's best. And as I think I said once before, no, I don't work for the WC. I wish I did. Get this tape!!!!.
