Funny!


I love this movie. It rocks! But I have to say the funniest line is Del saying:

Supberb and Astonishing.


This film is by far one of the best films ever,and it was so underrated and so not widely recieved.It is cinematically Beautiful,from the art direction,the sets,the costumes,the story,the wonderful score by Elmer Bernstein,and the Direction.Hands down the best performances of the year belong to this film as well. Miss Moore is not only the finest living actress we have on this planet,but in my words and from my view point she was robbed of the academy award this year.I just hope that soon she will be recognized with a win from the academy. Although that does'nt matter at all.I too am a fan of Miss Kidman and the Hours, but just watch this film and you will see what i mean.Dennis Quaid was robbed of even a nomination,and this is by far the most amazing performance he's ever given.This is one of my favorite movies,and is a treasure to listen to and to watch. i hope you will all enjoy this film.

This is without a doubt, the best movie of all time. I have seen the movie about 100 times, and the movie is so good and well written that I see something different in the movie each time.

Jason X - movie DVD cover picture
THERE COULD BE NOTHING BETTER FOR THE SERIES...


I have entertained the possibility that the proceedings are an internal criticism of the parody horror (ie Scream), but it is far more aimed toward the goal of fan indulgence. Honestly, there are practically no people who enjoyed the series to this point who actually wanted Jason to die, much less genuinely terrify them...fright, and its ideal aftermath are far more lucrative, anyway, as a means to get laid as opposed to emotional betterment.
That being said, the film is actually more successful as a comedy as opposed to a traditional gorefest. There is plently of gore involved (think of an outspread incarnation of the suicide-booths from Futurama), but the tone of the film is like a blend of Event Horizon and Scary Movie - it uses its own traditional emptiness of "proper" film elements - the most overrated of which is character development - to make sport of the continuing barrage. Those of you who are fans of the series should be advised that while the dialogue has by no means slacked from the older films (it has a bit more "youthful punch"), there is a slight, though noticable level of corniness in its brevity. However, it just makes the show more of an escape from any responsibility we endure in the standard world.
That, essentially, is what any film worth the stock its imprinted on can do - transport you away from the annoyance you have to deal with. On that note, and not to further annoy anyone whose expectations were prematurely harvested by the MASSIVE amount of spoilers out there, the show does exactly what it set out to do: have a bunch of hot chicks and equally superficial guys screw (and get screwed), jog around with pointless yelling, and ultimately, die in adrenalinic applause from the devoted crowd...
Enjoy.

Goldfinger (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
"That's as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs"


Oh, to have lived in the 1960s, when a great Bond film came out Every. Single. Year. "Goldfinger" represents the artistic nirvana of the James Bond series, before Connery lost interest in the role, when his powers as 007 were at their greatest.
"Goldfinger" has an interesting two-part plot structure in which Auric Goldfinger is not actually revealed to be a mega-villain until the second half. The first 55 minutes involve luscious locales, a couple of shocking death sequences (most notably Tilly Masterson's death by hat mere minutes after her entry into the film), and the funniest golf game in history (until the advent of Tony Soprano). Once the scene shifts to Kentucky, and Goldfinger's plan is revealed, Bond has little to do except lounge around in polo shirts or say things like "He blew a fuse". Thanks to the new DVD box set, even 40 years later it's instantly understandable why half the world's men want to be Sean Connery.
The special edition DVD is one of the best in the series. Unlike "Dr. No" and "From Russia...", there are two audio commentary tracks. The first, produced years ago for the laserdisc, features edited sound bites from director Guy Hamilton and other cast members. The second, made for the DVD, has clips only from crewmembers (beware the misleading print on the back cover), and thus there's plenty of time for Bond expert John Cork to make some interesting scholarly points about how dated the Ian Fleming novels are, and what elements of Bonds character did not survive the 1970s. Indeed from this track you learn a lot more about the original "Goldfinger" novel, and you'll hear opinions as to why the story works better as a movie. These are worthy points and they set the commentary track above the cut-and-paste variety.
The two "documentaries" are also above-average. The making-of feature, narrated by Patrick Macnee, features the fall-off-the-couch laughing screen test of Theodore Bikel as Goldfinger... evidently playing the role as a college professor! The second feature is all about the marketing of "Goldfinger". There are some awesome finds in here, such as the picture of a fat Prince Charles riding in a toy Aston Martin DB-5, or the Vicks commercial featuring Harold Sakata demolishing an American suburb with his persistent cough. There's also a truly dreadful 1964 US promotional film, with grainy black-and-white footage from the movie and the snarkiest voice-over ever. "Looks like he passed the audition."
And the real great moment here is Connery's well-timed 1964 jab at the Beatles. Final proof that the Bond movies are, in fact, still as relevant as ever.

watching this movie on a television does not do it justice


First of all, watching this movie on a television does not do it justice. The wide screen vistas and fight scenes are intense in the theater. Although they are also spectacular in a smaller format, it just isn't the same. With that aside, this movie has the most intense and realistic battle scenes ever before shown. Braveheart has many dimensions, the plot is exciting and suspenseful, the characters are well defined and portrayed, and there is an unparalleled scenery and musical accompaniment. A movie complete with everything it needs to make it memorable and special.

Cross of Iron


I saw this movie only on TV. This is a very realistic war movie and almost rivals the famous "Platoon".
The historical accuracy (equipment of the soldiers and the arms etc.) is quite good and far surpasses that of the average US-made films such as "Battle of the Bulge".
The story is rather unusual, in this sense it resembles "Apocalipse now". The story of "Platoon" is better than "Cross of Iron". The reason of the reality of "Platoon" comes from the fact that the Director Oliver STONE actually participated the Vietnam War.
All in all, this is a classic of the realistic WWII land warfare. Viewers can feel the Antiwar feeling in the film.

The worst part of this animation is the length and even that is hardly noticeable. The story and characters are unique and riveting. From the very first minute, I was hooked and watched it many, many times thereafter.

A beautiful and touching movie


Michael Caine portrays Dr. Larch who runs an orphanage. He performs deliveries or abortions, depending on the wishes of his patients. He arranges for adoptions and cares for those orphans who are not adopted. One of the children, Homer Wells, becomes like a son to him and he trains him to succeed him at the orphanage. Homer disapproves of the abortion end of Larch's business and decides to go out into the world to see new things. He admits to his companions that he has never seen the ocean, nor has he seen a lobster, although he has spent his entire life in Maine. Homer falls in love and learns about the good and evil side of the people with whom he comes in contact. This is a wonderful movie with brilliant acting and a very moving story--the best I've seen in quite sometime.
