The American Soldier - movie DVD cover picture
Fassbinder's film noir

If you are not wild about Fassbinder's early films, you will still love 'the American Soldier'. The look of the film is taken straight from the great film noir tradition - brilliant use of light and shadows. The plot of the movie, as in Godard, is not of the greatest importance - and you can miss something and still pick up where you left off. One of the most significant features of the film is the ending - which clearly illustrates how Fassbinder liked to unite the themes of sex and death (it is perhaps most pronounced in his final film 'Querelle')

Made for repeat watching

This is a wonderful family movie, about coming of age and not being the most popular kid in school. Ronald has a scheme to get himself into the "A" crowd, when he pays the head cheerleader to act like his girlfriend. The story is very good with many lessons learned. It is very family friendly, and I have seen it a good 25-30 times and still don't get board. There are not enough good family friendly movies out there but this is one of them. Buy and enjoy over and over again.

King of New York - movie DVD cover picture
The best gangster film you've probably never seen

Ranking up there with Scarface and even Goodfellas, King of New York is one of the best gangster films ever made, thanks largely in part to the magnetic and explosive performance by Christopher Walken. Walken is Frank White, a ruthless kingpin freshly released from prison who vows to use his connections and money for charitable means. On his trail however, are three cops (David Caruso, Wesley Snipes, and Victor Argo) who, by any means necessary, vow to bring Frank down. Profane, action packed, and filled with unforgettable performances (Walken, Caruso, and Laurence Fishburne are incredible), Abel Ferrara's King of New York is hypnotic from it's first frame to final shot, and the action scenes are pulled off better than most major budget pictures. This new Special Edition from Lion's Gate/Artisan includes a nice amount of extras to tide fans of the film over, and the commentary by director Ferrara must be heard to be believed.

The Disributor Missed the Boat

It is a crime that horror tripe like "Valentine" was given wide release in US theatres yet a film as fantastic as this one goes straight to video. Is it because of the strong female characters? The open discussion and realistic portrayal of teen girls enduring puberty? Perhaps it was thought that characters with actual depth might confuse US audiences. Or maybe none of the US studios wanted to release a Canadian film that made theirs look so bad. Personally I think that it was due to the string of fantastic offerings for the 2001 summer movies and there just wasn't room for anything marketed at an audience that doesn't have drooling problems. This is easily the best horror film in years with complex characters, a very black sense of humor and a script that isn't a mishmash of everything you've seen before. It builds tension relentlessly right up to the pull no punches ending. Keep an eye on the two stars-they have long solid careers stretching inf front of them if their work continues to be of this caliber.

Dean Martin - Don't Miss This Gem !

I have been a Dino fan ever since my mum played 'Return to Me' on an old 78 rpm record.That song doesn't appear on this wonderful DVD but no matter,there is a bundle of marvellous performances here to warm the heart of any Dino fan culled from his outstanding tv shows of the '60's. What a treat to hear him perform so many great standards. Ballads such as I'm in the Mood for Love, Pennies From Heaven and You Made Me Love You, and swingers like LOVE,Where or When (thought to be his favourite song and here given a tremendous rendition) and a tongue in cheek Ol' Man River.Dean never took himself seriously but the art of making it look easy was never better demonstrated then in this compelling sequence of musical performances. Greg Garrison's gushing but intelligent between song comments are full of insight and he sums up Dean's craft beautifully - "...oh he was good, WAS he good". BUY THIS NOW AND YOU'LL WANT MORE !

summerslam was awsome

summerslam was one of the best pay per views i've ever ordered. Great matches like the triple threat match, hardcore match, the kiss my *** match and much more. The matches that sucked were the tag team title match and double title match between double J and D'Lo Brown.

Happy Tearworthy!

If you love romantic comedies and stories about fate than you will absolutely love "Serendipity." John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale make you fall in love with the story! Not only is the story lighthearted and warm, but it is also suspenseful! "Serendipity will keep you at the edge of your seat the whole way through! I recommend this movie to everyone, even if you hate romantic comedies! You are sure you be in a happy mood after watching.
