Diagree with "Guilty Pleasure" review...

Sure, if you want to see Garland at her absolute peak, see the earlier MGM classics referenced in the intelligently written "Guilty Pleasures" review. Still, for those of us who are fascinated with the full spectrum of Garland's work, there is much to recommend "I Could Go On Singing"--despite its obvious flaws. Greatest of these is the warmth and straightforwardness of her rendition of "It Never Was You." Additionally, the authenticity of her acting in this film is striking. As an example, the love she felt for real-life son Joey Luft is well-documented. The love she conveys for her son in this movie gives you a sense of how she must have behaved toward her real son.

The Long Walk Home

This movie paints a very vivid picture of the 1955 bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama. Odessa Cotter, a maid, is in the middle of the beggining of the civil rights struggle. One can see the differences between a white and black family during the 50's. Odessa struggles to support her family and the boycott. One feels the tension between the two groups, and the violence that sometimes resulted. I saw this movie in Morality class, and I'm glad I had the chance to see it. Because of this movie I am more aware of the civil rights struggle and all of the hardships that came with it. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to enrich their knowledge and enjoy a great movie.

Selma, Lord, Selma--- Great Movie

I had watched this movie in school during my history class, we were studying the civil rights movement.And I think that this movie did a great job showing and describing the event. I think that this movie is very inspirational, and it would make you will grateful for what you have. This movie is from the view of an African American little school girl who wanted to take part in the civil rights marches in her community. She was a very brave girl who was very determined to reach the goal of freedom. Other characters in the movie were also very great and very good with their role like the young Reverend in the movie named Jonathon.

L'Eclisse - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
A master film from a master filmmaker

Author Sam Rohdie wrote in a wonderful book on Antonioni," Much of the drama of Antonioni's films occur here in the dead times, outside of the narrative, when everything is done, when there is silence, or emptiness as if in these spaces not only does the film occur, there precisely where 'things' are eclipsed, but a whole new cinema begins to take shape." There could be no better introduction to this daring and dynamic work. L'Eclisse is a film that opens with nearly two minutes of dramatic silence between a woman and her lover who have been arguing all night. It is in this silence that Antonioni explores a new cinema, recording reflections against surfaces, the artificial wind of a fan, the drone of its motor, the prison-like claustrophobia of a doomed love affair in hot and stuffy room. And as if this isn't enough, Vittoria (Monica Vitti) runs into the promising but ultimately dispassionate arms of Piero (Alain Delon)a stockbroker. These two beautiful people occupy a world without love, an alien and alienating landscape of promises unfullfilled. A world filled with the loud and passionate screams of stockbrokers racing to make their next transaction and humans who stuggle desperately to communicate the most simple emotion. Antonioni and his collaborator, Tonino Guerra were capturing a new and powerful realism in this film by capturing the effect, just after the cause. In doing this, they opened up a new perspective on realism in the cinema that has only been matched by Andrei Tarkovsky in SOLARIS and MIRROR. But it is the breathtaking finale of the film, unforgettable in its cinematography and dramatic statement that will have you returning the L'Eclisse, again and again.

Virtually Perfect

This DVD is everything that the Boston video wasn't. It's live, spontaneous and conveys what the Elevation shows were like. Both videos were compiled from 2 seperate shows. However, this one has lingering shots of the audience and the band, while Boston often felt like an MTV video. For some shows that works. For this tour it mostly didn't.
Then there's the sound. The PCM track from Boston was fine, but the 5.1 track was nothing short of unlistenable.
Thankfully the clarity is roughly the same on all 3 tracks. I personally find the vocals (center channel) a bit grating, but it either gets better as the show goes on, or I got used to it.
Either way, for 12 bucks this is a no brainer.

The Ultimate in Paranoid Horror

My top trilogy of horror has always been Halloween, Alien, and The Thing. I was just a kid when these flicks were released, and they've endured as the standard for what's scary to me in films. I've always had a special fondness for The Thing, and out of those 3 films, I think this remains the most enduring and satisfying overall. Carpenter REALLY knew what he was doing back then, and his collective talents transcended the horror genre by leaps and bounds. Even now, I don't think he has ever been bested in that regard. Having said that, The Thing marked the end of a great era in horror for me, as Carpenter's work really got quite lame after this film imo. Starman? Vampires? =/

Anyway...the effects still hold up pretty well, and if viewed within the context of when the film was made, they were groundbreaking at the time. Not just in execution, but mainly in terms of creature design and the nightmarish vision it takes to pull these elements together into a film that is frightening, not hokey; "Hokey" being the major downfall of 99% of horror films out there in my opinion. The location and production design are also ideal, creating a sense of dread, isolation, and intense paranoia. The cast did a great job under the skillful direction of Carpenter, Rusell was superb in the leading role (for a cool tiwst on this flick, listen to the commentary track of Carpenter and Russell while the film is playing, there's a few laughs in there as well). This flick also has one of THE best endings ever. Not as obvious and in your face as Mike Meyers vanishing after Loomis unloads his revolver into him, but a deeper more cerebral sense of 'is it really over now'? I'm weary of horror films where the inevitable ending is some cheesy wrap up or other form of vindication when the threat is vanquished and that's that. This film takes another turn entirely with the ending, inestimable despair and very ominous. Truly one of the best endings to any suspense/terror film ever.

Superb terror and suspense, every horror fan should have this.
