Everybody's Hero


Everybody's hero is called 'Baby' in this movie. People who try to make themselves into heroes by clinging to a system which attempts to demonstrate that it has values like the Kellermans, who are constantly trying to control the situation here, end up being like "the big creep" when they have to fire people who have emotional outbursts about this kind of thing. Curiously, as I remember this movie, there is a doctor who says, "When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong." This must be pure fantasy.

Thesis - movie DVD cover picture
A Powerful "Thesis" of a Film...


In my very subjective opinion, Alejandro Amenabar's Thesis is the film Joel Schumaker wished that he could've made when he did 8MM with Nicholas Cage. It gets into the subconcious in ways that many American films deemed as "suspensful" don't. I daresay that they only scratch the surface while Thesis burrows underneath. The film is about the darkness that lurks beneath the sweet and sugar facade, about the human condition and how far some people are willing to go in the world, even if it means their life to get an answer. I'm not going to give you a synopsis but what I will do is challenge you to a viewing if you haven't seen it. Track it down, make the effort, borrow it from your friend with the obscure film collection. By the end you'll see that Alejandro Amenabar is a master at his game and that a lot of these American film directors need to go back to school.

Romeo Must Die - movie DVD cover picture
JET LI! JET LI!


I saw all Jet li's movies that where available in my area and my conclusion is that this is one of his best. It has funny parts and the fighting scenes are just great! i love the scene where he uses tie wraps to attach the enemies. I really love the concept of seeing a X-ray photography where you can see where the ennemie got his bone, skull or chest broken or pierced! Other movies of his that are worth checking are Twin Warriors ( Tai Chi Master), Fist of Legend, The Enforcer (My father is my hero), Black Mask and Lethal weapon 4. People complaining about wires should watch these movies out and they'll see how much they are used and that they actually didn't use them much in ROMEO MUST DIE!

Finding Neverland (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Shows the power of the human imagination ...


This movie seems like a film that Hollywood is increasingly unable or unwilling to make, or at least unable to make well. Consider the following two facts about Finding Neverland: (a) there is virtually no profanity or sex and (b) it features a protagonist who is able to have a platonic, mature relationship with a woman who is not his wife, a relationship that he partakes in solely for the good of the woman and her family. But I think I liked the film mostly because it deals with one of my favorite topics: the human imagination. Some movies (Star Wars, etc.) are exercises in the human imagination, but don't really delve into how the exercise of imagination can affect normal everyday life. There is a tendency in some people to discount "escapist" cinema as being less worthy of artistic or cultural merit than movies that deal with "real" subjects. But as this movie shows, the fantastic can influence the real world in meaningful ways, and vice versa. It is the relationship with the widow's four sons that provided the impetus for J. M. Barrie to write his classic "Peter Pan" stageplay, and in Barrie's overactive imagination the boys found the strengh to deal with very real tragedies that had befallen their young lives. As C. S. Lewis (a writer of the fantastic whose relationship with another woman's sons is strangely similar to Barrie's) once commented, the only people who object to escapism are jailers.

The Greatest Saga Besides Gone With The Wind


Ladies and Gentleman it is finally here! This wonderful piece of cinema is about to make it's dvd debut. I can not thank Warner Bros. enough for the release of North and South. At 30 years old and being a male it should be embarrasing for me to say but I am thoroughly captivated by this mini series. I watched it as a child and spent $300 on the VHS tapes many years ago. I have seen North and South books 1 & 2 many, many times and can watch them till the day I die. Storytelling has never been this good. It draws the viewer in through intricate characters that grow on you for 18 hours. It blends historical facts with a humanity of fiction. I learned more about the civil war from this mini series than any text books in school. It will make a wonderful edition to my dvd collection and I look forward to reliving this masterpiece over and over again.

I would never have expected a sequel so spectacular to what is one of the funniest films ever, but Guest, Shearer, and McKean really outdid themselves. Nigel's inventions which include an amp capo and a folding wine glass are hilarious

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - movie DVD cover picture
Sick, twisted, disturbing... All in good low-budget filming!


One of the BEST slashers ever made to hit horror cinema would have to by the 1974 cult classic, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". It's the TRUE story based off the actual murders of the serial killer, Ed Gein about five youths who decide to take a normal afternoon summer drive that becomes a nightmare! After picking up a psychotic hitchhiker, they lose the menace eventually and continue... But it doesn't end there! The bloodthirsty Leatherface (the main villain who wields one helluva chainsaw)hunts them all down one by one, torturing them with mallets, hooks, & ice-cold freezers! This is indeed the most shocking film of it's time ever made & is still very scary even by todays standards. Therefore it is NOT for everyone. (if you are easily squeamish or a meat lover you should steer clear!) But if you're looking for a good horrifying masterpiece by Tobe Hooper (the creator who brought you "Poltergeist" & "Salem's Lot") then this is the movie to see! Very gross which turns out to prove that low-budget is sometimes the best!!!!

Cry Baby (Director's Cut) - movie DVD cover picture
I think it is HIP. And COOL. And other vulgar jazz words.


This is by far my most favorite movie of all time. Johnny Depp is pure hotness, especially with the tears. Crying never looked so sexy. The whole movie was hilarious, even though almost all of it was incredibly corny humor, incredibly corny acting... But that was the best part about it. The corniness. It was amazing. Johnny...fecking...Depp. Yes. That is the sh**.
