What is wrong with you???


I took my young daughter to see this movie and was so disappointed. The numerous adult themes in this movie was inappropriate for my daughter and what was expected to turn out to be a mother-daughter bonding did not materialize. This movie was horrible and strongly encourage parents to read a careful synopsis of the movie before going. This movie raises issue like rape, alcoholism, etc. that is inappropriate for young children.

Mums and Dads This Is a Great DVD


I almost didn't buy this DVD because of the first reviewer, but I went ahead and did it anyway. I'm glad I did so because I now know he has no idea what he's talking about. The 3 audio tracks on this DVD are AMAZING (yes even the 2 channel track, assuming you have Dolby Pro Logic II)! The DTS is excellent, and my preffered choice. The direction style of the video is much like any newer rock band DVD... Get used to it. Great selection of songs, the best being Ways & Means (the live violins are really cool). A must own.

Forgiveness is divine, but don't pay for late pizza


15 years ago, four baby turtles and a rat met with some ooze that turned them into mutants. These four brothers are known as: Michelangelo,Leonardo, Dontello and Rafeal (spelling?) These four turtles are heroes on a half shell. They fight the evil Shedder, who is known by Splinter in some way. A good movie!

Film Noir Classic Collection (The Asphalt Jungle/Gun Crazy/Murder My Sweet/Out of the Past/The Set-Up) - movie DVD cover picture
5 film noir collections compared


This is mainly a contents listing of 5 box sets of film-noir collections. Quality is excellent for the Warner box--the films are not public domain and were remastered. The four other collections are of public-domain films, some of which were fixed up somewhat. Film quality is variable (dropouts, scratches, cropped images, fuzziness, low contrast). Most films are quite watchable, and there are some very good versions, especially if low price is considered (e.g., Hitch-hiker--only on CLA9). However, there are some marginal issues (e.g., Red house--only on FN10) and some extremely bad issues (e.g., Man who cheated himself--only on CLA9).

Ratings based on video-audio quality and emphasizing value for money: 5* = CLA1; 4* = CLA9, KIL5, MY10; 3* = FN10

COLLECTIONS--SUMMARY:
*** CLA1 = Film noir classic collection (Warner, 2004) [5 movies, 1944-50] $49.95 list. Extras: 5 film commentaries; 1 introduction; 2 trailers. Note: Volume 2 with 5 more noir films will appear in 7/05.
*** CLA9 = Classic film noir (St. Clair, 2005) [9 movies, 1946-53] $9.95 list. Extras: poster gallery (in color); featurette (About film noir, TT5:00); 7 trailers (TT16:00)
*** FN10 = Film noir: 10 movies (Brentwood, 2004) [10 movies, 1934!, 1945-52] $19.95 list. Extras: 40 trailers (4/disk)
*** KIL5 = 5 film noir killer classics (Questar, 2004) [5 movies, 1945-49] $29.95 list. Extras: The posters of film noir (in color, TT3:50); 2 featurettes (What is film noir?, TT13:00; Femme fatale, TT7:53); 38 Film noir trailers (TT1.58:07)
*** MY10 = Mystery classics: 50 movie pack (Treeline, 2004) [10 film noir movies, 1945-54, 40 other movies, 1931-52] $34.95 list. Extras: none

Asphalt jungle, The (1950) = CLA1
Borderline (1950) = FN10 Note: at best marginally film noir!

This IS the best movie I've seen in years. It is the kind of movie that after you watch you realize how much most mainstream movies are concieved with no heart. This movie really hits you.
I've never been a fan of Jim Carrey but he makes you forget that he was once the Fire Marshall.... give this movie a chance it deserves it.

The Joan Crawford Collection (Humoresque / Possessed (1947) / The Damned Don't Cry / The Women / Mildred Pierce) - movie DVD cover picture
Finally!


A Joan Crawford DVD box set, complete with three films available on DVD for the first time--Possessed (1947), Humoresque (1946), and The Damned Don't Cry (1950). The Damned Don't Cry has never been released in any format--VHS or DVD--so snatch it up while you can (it is and excellent Joan Crawford star vehicle, concerning gangsters and a fine collection of 1950 Mercurys!). The full set includes also the DVD releases of Mildred Pierce and The Women (both great films as well).

I've heard that "Possessed" has received a complete restoration, and I'm sure the other titles have been cleaned up as well, so this is an excellent opportunity to own some of Joan Crawford's rarer films, and at a bargain price!

Looking at the release date, it seems "The Joan Crawford Collection" is going head-to-head with "The Bette Davis Collection," released on the same day! So if you are an admirer or fan of Crawford's, I urge you to buy this wonderful set right away (and give Davis fans a run for their money!).

Let the competition begin! It's Crawford VS. Davis in DVD sales! Who will win?

Movie is Nice


This Movie is really nice. It made me really warm because it was shot in the desert and I felt like it would be really hot in the desert. All those guys were wearing so much clothing that they must have been hot too. I hope there was lots of water there. Spike Jonze was good because he was from the South and I like people from the South because they are like me. I also liked Soldier #3. His performance was brilliant.

William Demeo does a great job in this movie and I think who ever slams this guy doesnt know acting. He will be a great one for years to come. The other actors are quality as well. This movie was developed nicely and I think is a quality mob flick for any real movie fan...not just someone out there to tarnish somebody's image.
