Demons/Demons 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Don't expect to receive this from Amazon....


I have ordered this from Amazon and have been waiting several months and I don't think I am going to get it. It is long gone out of print and I recently just hunkered down and dropped the $80 for a new copy. I must say, it was TOTALLY WORTH IT. These two movies are the ultimate in gore/horror from the meistro himself, Dario Argento. The English dubbing is a little off but the story and gore are right on. I think I like Demons 2 better than the first one but both are top notch gore classics. Anyway, if you are waiting for a copy from Amazon, good luck. But if I were you, I would get this from one of the merchants before they start selling for something ridiculous like $150.

Spectacular . . . chilling . . . a must-see


Taxi Driver is one of my all-time favorite movies. Everything about this movie is good. The cinematography is fantastic, and the story is incredibly well-done. Robert De Niro is mesmerizing as a delusional, deranged taxi driver. A must-see, impossible to describe.

Enjoy it if you are delightfully demented!


This is the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life. I now compare all bad movies to this. If I don't like a movie I always say that was a bad movie, but it's no Home Fries.

Chobits - Persocom (Vol. 1) - Limited Edition With Series Box and Stationery Kit - movie DVD cover picture
A must buy


Don't be fooled by the semi-innocent yet sexual persona on the surface of this portion of the story. So far this series is starting a crack-up & light hearted comedy of a boy and his 'droid. But... there are some subtle clues placed here and there that echo of a mysterious and possibly painful future. Remember them.
Almost all the characters in the series get fitting introductions in this part of the series. There is no such thing as filler.

Venus in Furs - movie DVD cover picture
Psychedelic cinema at its best


Legendary cult director Jess Franco has made a staggering amount of films in his career, and regardless of how non-existent the budget or incoherent the narrative is, nearly all of his pre-1980 work is at the very least interesting, and in many cases, fascinating. Jess Franco always provides us with sensuous eye candy and a great soundtrack, but in the case of "Venus in Furs", he goes far beyond that and creates a film that is more than just a great exploitation film - it's a great film period.

Along with his two other masterworks, "Vampyros Lesbos", and "She Killed in Ecstacy", this is one of the few Franco films that has not only a strong story idea to start with, but a solid and well paced narrative to carry it along. The film benefits enormously by a great cast, anchored by leading man James Darren, who turns in a low-keyed, solid performance that is reminiscent of something you might see in a Hitchcock or early Brian Depalma film. Maria Rohm is as sensuous and captivating as ever, and both the lucious Barbara Lee and the sultry Barbara McNair round out what might be one of the best trio of "Franco women" ever cast together in one of his films. Also on hand is Franco/Euro-horror regular Klaus Kinski. He is solid as usual.

It goes without saying that the movie looks great (given the age of the film, the transfer is superb), and is loaded with erotic imagery, but Franco outdoes himself here. The score by Manford Mann and Mike Hugg is outstanding and goes a long way toward creating the film's hypnotic atmosphere. This is a movie that Franco buffs and fans of Euro exploitation will simply love. Even non-Franco film buffs who enjoyed the likes of "Jacobs Ladder", and Mary Lambert's "Siesta", also might want to check it out.

Training Day - movie DVD cover picture
Best Movie of 2001


Denzel Washington plays an oustanding Performance.. and one of the best roles hes played. This show wouldn't be good , if it hadn't been for him and his great role play in one of most powerful Crime/Dramas ever told.It shows how LA, california is all about.. in the neighborhood of how society can reflect to others who haven't lived that moment. Denzel made this movie what it is. He can play just about any character. Hes a Legend of hollywood. Ethan Hawke played well too. The movie gets real intense.. and gets you on the edge of more and more interests growing in your mind.

Deconstructing Harry - movie DVD cover picture
The half of the sin is the scandal!


This film is the most acid and bitter in all the filmography . Don't expect you are invited just to watch another film of Woody Allen . This work plays hard and challenges you . Allen literally makes a social surgeon abou a lot of aspects considered as normal by mostly of us .
Allen has never been so merciless in any other movie . There is a remarkable point what the creation means : all creation demands the destruction of the previous order .
With this advise in mind , just proceed to watch it . You will laugh but the result may be in many cases a forced smile .

Tim Burton on DVD


Finally! I have waited forever for Edward Scissorhands to be released on DVD. These features will be phenomenal. Any Tim Burton film that comes on DVD with an audio commentary of him and Danny Elfman is great. Im looking forward to a special edition of Nightmare Before Christmas on DVD... I hope I can expect that soon...

simply a masterpiece


This is my possibly the most underacclaimed work of cinematic brilliance ever. Nasty and a little disturbing yet at the same time uplifting and joyous.
And ohhhhhhhhh! Those sisters!
