Malcolm X - movie DVD cover picture
Denzel is the Man!!!


This is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is long and there are some parts that move by really slowly, but taken as a whole this is truly one of the best films ever made. I am not a huge fan of Spike Lee, but he really out did himself with "X". Denzel is perfect as Malcolm. Angela Bassett is wonderful.
This movie is moving and dramatic. I cried numerous times through out the movie. I was caught up in the life of Malcolm X and I immediately went out and bought the book by Alex Haley.
No matter your views about Malcolm, Spike Lee, or the Civil Rights movement this movie is entertaining and stands on its own merit.

Hey..It's Todd!


What can be bad? Let me change that...his "Ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect" was actually a video/dvd I could have lived without. But the 2nd Wind Sessions..I have seen before and really enjoyed the insight into the recording process and the fun the performers..and the audience seem to have. Plus Todd cracks me the hell up anyway. The DeskTop Collection I have also seen before and enjoyed. Todd is sadly underappreciated. His induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is long overdue. He has participated in some of the seminars that are held there...one would think his induction would have occurred by now. Although he will be inducted...I am bothered that it hasn't happened yet. But...I digress. This DVD is really quite good and immensely entertaining...his music is timeless...hits home every time.

The Best Is Yet To Come!


I just want to say that the collaboration of Nick Cannon and B2K was/ is brilliant! These young men have what it takes to stay in this industry for a very long time. And since they are taking the motion picture industry by storm, they have proven themselves to be great actors as well as great musicians! I love this DVD and I pray that there are more B2K & Nick Cannon projects in the near future. The video 'Feelin' Freaky' is absolutely adorable and shows that these guys have character and a great sense of humor. They seem to have a lot of fun at what they do and that's very important with any career choice. I wish them continued success and I encourage anyone who does not own this DVD to go out and get it today! You will be glad you did!

Powerpuff Girls - Finally on DVD!!!


Finally, my requests for a Powerpuff Girls DVD compilation have been answered! "Powerpuff Bluff" is a compilation of the first two Powerpuff Girls videos to appear on the market: "Bubblevicious" and "Monkey See, Doggie Do". When I purchased these videos I had no idea that Warner Home Video was planning to release both video collections on a future DVD compilation. Well, know I'm both surprised and elated.
"Powerpuff Bluff" includes some of the show's first episodes when it premiered on the Cartoon Network in the fall of 1998. The quality of the video when compared to the VHS editions is superb and the sound is incredible. The ability to select chapters on the DVD sure beats fast forwarding or rewinding to episodes you want to see, and the extra features, which include a preview for a new Cartoon Network series is an added bonus.
"Powerpuff Bluff" is one of the best DVD releases of 2000. If you are a fan of the series, this DVD is a must have to truly enjoy the visual and audio quality of one of today's best cartoon series. If you don't have a DVD, run out and get one, as the days of the VCR are numbered.

Bichunmoo (Dance With Sword) - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best fantasy martial arts films!


As an avid fan of traditional fantasy martial arts films, Bichunmoo is among the top movies within its category, ranking right next to Swordsman II, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Beautiful directing, coupled with the highest budget film in Korean movie-making history makes this a MUST see! Unlike movies with much bang but mediocre plot (such as Storm Riders, The Duel, Legend of Zu), Bichunmoo explores a captivating love story between a poor swordsman, and the daughter of a powerful general. The director is bold in his telling of this tragic love story, leaving the audience touched, and wishing for a happier alternative ending (as is the case of all good tragedies).
This review is based on the asian release, with excellent Korean and Chinese voice acting, and excellent sound rendering.

Big Fish - movie DVD cover picture
The Story of My Life


It's not the stories that make the man, it's the man that makes the stories so it's only natural that an extraordinary man like Edward Bloom has some extraordinary stories. From early in his life it was obvious that he was a big fish in a small pond and throughout his life he constantly proved that he could not only weave a tall tale, but live one as well.
Our tale is presented to us as Edward Bloom nears the end of his days and his son William returns home after 3 years of silence between him and his father. As a child Will ate up his father's tales but as an adult journalist only has an appetite for the truth, or at least what he perceives as the truth. He wants to know who his father really is, not the larger than life figure of tales. Will's father has no plans to change his stories so Will seeks out the truth for himself, but what he finds is that even legends have factual beginnings, some quite that way.
We're presented these tall tales in a combination of flashbacks and voiceovers with grand performances for the charming Bloom, Albert Finney as the present day, Ewan McGregor as his past. In his tales Edward has met a giant, a witch, a lost poet turned bank robber, a werewolf circus ringleader, Siamese twin lounge singers, and most importantly the woman he is destined to marry. McGregor's natural charm guides us through the stories and he sells us on his tall tales just as he does odd objects to people as a traveling salesman. As the veteran Bloom, Albert Finney is a true presence, making his bed-ridden man more moving than any action star.
The supporting cast looks great on paper and even better on screen. Bloom's wife is warmly brought to screen by Jessica Lange in the present and Alison Lohman as the younger (they have an uncanny resemblance). Others include Helena Bonham Carter in a duel role, Steven Buscemi, and Danny Devito. Of course, there is also Billy Crudup as his grown son Will who, because of Edward's masterful charm, we despise at the beginning, but accept readily once he falls under the same spell we have.
The power of stories on us doesn't depend on how believable or unbelievable they are, but that they involve people that we treasure and by the end of Tim Burton's Big Fish I was fully in love with Edward Bloom.
