As soon as i saw it on DVD i knew i had to own it. lets put it this way, if u dont mind profanity and a few racial comments, and even if you do, this is 2 of the funniest hours of comedy ever.

Wow!


I loved this movie when it originally came out in the theaters. Ed Harris has always been one of my favorite actors. Wonderful special effects; guess my favorite is the sea water "tube."
I use this movie in my 8th grade science class at the end of our study about oceans. The students have to watch it and classify which things they see are actual science and which are science fiction. We talk about Jules Verne and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The Hours (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Thr Hours of Feelings


"The Hours" is easily the best movie of 2002/2003.
Based on a Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "The Hours", it recounts a single day in the life of three women from different times: Virginia Woolf (1923), Laura Brown (1951) and Clarissa Vaughn (2001).
We get three different stories of true emotions, each heartfelt in its own way, combined into over 100 mintues of complex feelings that will have you in tears a couple of times before the end credits start to roll.
The central point of cohesion is Viginia Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway". Virginia Woolf, an author troubled by by own insanity in Richmond (1923) is in the midst of writing her bookMrs Dalloway. Choosing between living in Richmond and death, Virginia Woolf will finally succumb to the voices in her head by killing herself.
Almost 30 years later, a lonely housewife, Laura Brown in Los Angeles (1951) picks up the book for a read and questions her own life and feelings. She decides to leave while the impact on her son, Richard, is so devastating in years to come. The movie hits a high in a scene when Julianne Moore's character becomes engulfed in a sea of water while in bed.

In 2001, a New York City gay woman being nicknamed "Mrs. Dalloway" by her dying AIDS friend, Richard, questions her own existence and priorities when Richard re-ascertains his love for her before leaping to his death, another emotional high in the movie.

In this well-executed movie, the cast has given stellar performances and props go to all three lead actresses. Nicole Kidman delivers a performance of a lifetime delivering a convinving portrayal of one of the leading authors of all time. Her performance shines through in the scene when she argues with her husband for her own existence at the train station. Perfect!

Julianne Moore is the most outstanding here in her portrayal of a lonely housewife who makes a daring choice to break free and later confronts her son's suicide leap with much bitterness. If there were two Oscars to give, she sure deserves one too. Look for her Oscar-nominated performance in Far From Heaven!

Meryl Streep, as usual, doesn not disappoint in her lesbian role played to great emotions opposite Ed Harris's dying character whom she has stood by all these years. "No two people would have been happier the way we have been."

Simply breathtaking, a masterpiece!

Unforgettable


Make no mistake about it, this film is the best film to come off the shores of the American continent in decades. With charm, wit, passion and horrible accuracy it depicts two young lads journey towards adulthood and a woman in search for some inner peace. The two young actors and the beautiful woman are all worthy international recognition and pay-checks the size of Hollywood megastars, because these guys can act. I have never been so frustrated and entertained watching a movie so full of idiotic and childish pranks yet still I couldn't help but caring for these lads and wanting more. The end is awesome - if you excuse a word often misused - but the road there is even better...I'm taking my next vacation to Boca de cielo!

The Breakfast Club - movie DVD cover picture
Essential Viewing For Any Child Of The 80?s


An exceptional movie and one of John's most coherent attacks on the school system. While TBC is about growing up and the human tendency to robotically judge others based on bogus assumptions, it is the psychotic teacher and what he represents who stands out above everything.
Like John Hughes, I have never had any confidence in the school system, and in my own experience (admittedly at an all-male grammar school), male teachers fall into four basic groups...
1. Bullies.2. Pedophiles.3. Cowards, who are afraid to go out and work in the real world.4. The tiny number for whom teaching is a passion.
The only decent teachers (and they do exist) come from the latter group. The goose-stepping thug who runs the detention in The Breakfast Club is at least a #1.
The script is excellent and it is a joy to watch the relationships between the five kids unfold. It is a fitting climax that the teacher's divide and conquer tactics fail miserably as the students find a natural unity based on common experience and a common purpose.
The movies that followed in the wake of TBC, such as Ferris, were all classics and unashamedly heavy on the comedy. Breakfast Club is necessarily much more serious, yet it too has many highly entertaining moments.
Yep, it could be time to start your John Hughes library, people.

Dubbed, goofy, and that's the point!


Kung Pow was probably one of the most misunderstood films this year (2002). It was a clever satire of old Hong Kong martial arts films using an old Hong Kong martial arts film. That in itself is hilarious.

A Clockwork Orange - movie DVD cover picture
Bring on the original version!


Last year a local repertory theater in Minneapolis showed the original X-rated version of this film, which was the one released before a few cuts were made to garner the R version. The difference is not huge, but it is important: The scenes shown to Alex (by force) in the theater are more explicitly violent and, therefore, more repellant. That part of the X-rated version is more true to the book. The other scene affected (less crucially) by the R cut is the early encounter between Alex and his droogs with "Billyboy" and his gang. I hope that someone at Warner will see fit to release the uncensored versions of both "Eyes Wide Shut" and "Clockwork Orange".
