Fatal Attraction: You ain't got JACK on this movie!!


Unlike some people, I never could watch a movie like Fatal Attraction and believe for one minute that Michael Douglas could cheat on Ann Archer and pick a dog like Glen Close to be the "lucky" adultress. Now Ben Cronin cheating on Shiri Appleby and picking Erika Christensen to be the adultress? I can TOTALLY believe that!! That woman is a feakin' bombshell!! She's also, in my opinion, a great actress. Seriously. Would you think that somebody who looks SO angelic could be a devious, murderous psychopath? Not me!! Erika did a fabulous job!! You never knew what to expect, and were always totally surprised with whatever she did. Ben Cronin also did a fabulous job of playing the unsuspecting jock who life crumbles around him because due to a tawdry one night stand. I just LOVED this movie!! Utterly suspensful!! This movie will have you on the edge of you seat!! 90 minutes of fabulous entertainment!!

A Clockwork Orange - movie DVD cover picture
A quick note


I've seen all of Kubrick's work (except for Fear & Desire, if it counts), and out of all his truly great movies, a Clockwork Orange has to be my favorite. The following is the standard banal description of all great films. Here goes: This movie has it all. Cinematography, colors, acting, script, music, etc. But a Clockwork Orange really does stand true to each of these claims. Kubrick paints a rather disturbing picture of advanced technology in the future and how it affects one's overall judgement and/or free will.
The majority of people who worked with Kubrick during his pre-Eyes Wide Shut movies said he was an obsessive perfectionist who shot take after take after take just to get his vision exactly the way he wanted it. So? Why complain? These actors should consider themselves lucky to have worked with an outstanding and passionate director such as Kubrick. Every one of his films I've seen, I truly enjoyed, so it's not like all the time and effort put into the film was for naught. After a Clockwork Orange was done shooting, Malcolm Mc Dowell said he and Kubrick hated each other. Oh, well. That's show business. Bottom line: Kubrick was one of the minority of directors who truly believed in his work. He never slacked off and gave each of his projects everything he could. His eye for camera placement and movement was nothing short of brilliant. This man was a genius.
Kubrick knew how to tell a story without words. Not many people realize this. His ambient color techniques are truly captivating. For the first forty minutes of the film, Alex beats, rapes and tortures other people as if it were some sort of game. Notice how rich and vibrant the colors are and how they accentuate Alex's play-world. Once Alex is caught and sent to prison, the atmosphere turns bleak; Kubrick's motif in this particular sequence of the film is highlighted with grays and dark blues.
If you've never seen the film before, you don't know what you're missing. And after you've watched it, just try going through the week without speaking a word of Nasdat. I'm glad I waited to buy it on DVD; the initial copy is only 2-channel audio, I believe. This new version is supposed to be 5.1 dolby digital. I could be wrong. I'm basing this on what I've heard. But with Wendy Carlos' AMAZING synth score blaring on the soundtrack, 5.1 wouldn't be too shabby, now would it? If you've never seen a Kubrick film before, I'd recommend any one of his films. But a Clockwork Orange just so happens to be my favorite of his. Not particularly for the Scream crowd, but oddly enough, Generation Xers identify themselves with this film. Teenagers identifying with a Stanley Kubrick film. If that doesn't convey the greatness of this film, I don't know what will.

Closing Chapter


With Ashes and Diamonds, Andrzej Wajda completed his trilogy concerning the Polish experience during World War II. It is the last day of the war, and a young Republican resistance fighter, Maciek, has been assigned to assassinate a high ranking member of the Communist resistance. Maciek's experiences leading up to the killing--his contact with the kindly Communist leader, his romance with a young barmaid--seriously undermine his initial allegiance to the dying Republican cause. Director (and former resistance member) Wajda brilliantly portrays the fratricidal impulses guiding Poland immediately after the war--impulses which ultimately prostrated Poland under a Communist regime for decades. The directionlessness and confusion of postwar Poland is evident in Wajda's treatment and, although it is never directly seen, the Soviet Union's Red Army is unmistakably present. In its entirety, the trilogy of A Generation, Kanal, and Ashes and Diamonds devastatingly documents the death of Old Central Europe. However, it is a testament to Wajda's talent that Ashes and Diamonds can easily stand on its own.

Find out the ansewer to the question "Who is Keyser Söze"


I consider this movie to be one of the greatest thrillers of the 90's. You never know where the action is going to turn and there is never a dull moment. The action is told from the point of view of the sole survivor of gang. He and the story he reveals will have you guessing about the ending and your answer will always be wrong. The movie is fun but scary in a freaky kind of way at the same time Great performances all around, this kinda reminds me of "The Long Kiss Goodnight"
Overall-If you are looking for a good movie get this

one you'll remember


This is one film I never tire of. I don't care if I'm in the minority, Shirley Temple is simply the greatest child actor that ever was! (Liz Taylor is second!) It's fun to watch, is funny and sometimes a bit sad, but has a happy ending.

best in show hits the spot


I enjoyed this movie as much as any movie I have seen in recent years. It is exactly right on with the characters you would find at a show - dog, cat, horse, or beauty pageants. If you love to show and have a sense of humor, you will love this movie. If you have ever seen the Westminster Dog Show on A & E, you will love this movie. And why has no one mentioned that Fred is lampooning Joe Garagiola's commentary at the Westminster? It's hysterically outrageous and close to the bone so to speak. I can't recommend this too highly to show people. For others, I suppose that if you don't get the joke, it won't be funny, but it might be worth a try.
