Dolph Lundgren great again


This movie is the worst piece of clap trap that I have ever seen. Built in the mold of the Rambo series, the film tries to play off of the West's fear of the Soviet Union. You'd be better of watching a "How to pour milk" instructional video, than watch this film that will make you less smart!

Heavenly Creatures - movie DVD cover picture
Splendid true crime tale, with a shocking real "sequel"...


The first time I saw Heavenly Creatures I didn't like it. Afterall this IS a true story about two teen aged girls who commit a terible crime. I've since seen it several times and each time I like it more. Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey give incredible performances and Pauline and Juliet. Melanie Lynskey is especially good as lower middle class Pauline/Yvonne,Gina. The use of music and the fantasy sequences effectively show the over the top emotional states these girls were in. The relationship starts out innocently. In fact, Pauline is so miserable, it seems like Juliet is the best thing that has ever happened to her and then everything spirals out of control.
The final and best sequence has almost no dialoge--just the delicate music of the Humming Chorus from Madame Butterfly as Pauline's plodding, simple mother walks unwittingly to her death like a cow to the slaugher house. The scene starts out with beauty and ends with hideous cruelty and sums up the story of Pauline and Juliet perfectly.

What a Rockumentary Should Be


This was a great film, one of the best music documentaries I have seen in quite some time. They really capture a lot about the music business and the lives of the two bands. Anton (singer for the masacre) is hilarious, and it makes for some great scenes. If you are a music fan, or are just fond of documentaries this is a must buy.

As Good As It Gets


This boxed set is a wonderful gift considering its beautiful script and spectacular cast. This really was a great trilogy and its a perfect gift with its unique thriller genre to the cast that makes you hollar and cry. Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courteney Cox Arquette are wonderful actors who are the only people who fit the roles of these movies at their cinematic best. The Scream Trilogy boxed set is as good as it gets.

Band of Brothers - movie DVD cover picture
Become one of the...'Happy few.'


Band of Brothers is the best pure war movie ever made. In terms of bringing combat to its viewers, Band of Brothers has little or no competition. The dirt, death and despair of real fighting are vividly portrayed in an aggressive but accurate manner. It covers the actions of E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, from their beginnings at Camp Toccoa, through western Europe and finally to victory over the Nazi regime. Historical detail was a key interest in the making of this ten part series. Many first hand accounts were used to support the on-screen drama. Some complained that the section involving E Company's seizure of Hitler's Aldershorst was inaccurate. It is true that E Company was not the first allied unit to occupy the Eagle's Nest. But this small discrepancy is one of a very few that I found in the film. So overall I rate its accuracy highly. If you want an engrossing, heroic and epic story about the allied triumph in World War Two, then Band of Brothers is your film.

The Last Detail - movie DVD cover picture
Much underrated, very close to Five Easy Pieces in punch.


True compassion in the face of tragedy, a coming-of-age film both delicate and harsh in its treatment of life and loss: Innocence punished, but love not denied. Two sailors try to make the last days of freedom of a third into a lifetime of love and lust, and, unavoidably, the result is loss. Five stars fer-sher. Nicholson has never been finer.
