Funny


God I laughed so hard. Hudson and McConaughey are the perfect couple in this comedy for the masses. I loved the "love fern" and B.S. game. Come to think of it, all of the comedy was actually funny. A great movie especially for dates, your man may even love it.
Great movie, good DVD.

Favorite movie of all time


No one, but no one has ever been as good as Anthony Andrews in this movie. This is possibly the best Jane Seymour movie also. Leslie Howard's acting pales in comparison and not just because that movie is in black and white.
My VHS is suffering from too many viewings and I'm in the market for a DVD of this wonderful movie. How about it out there in DVD land?

Moulin Rouge (Single Disc Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A brilliant romance that revives the musical genre.


"Moulin Rouge!" (2001)
You may have never liked musicals before. You may have always hated when the characters in a live action film burst into song. I personally always quite enjoyed a not-too-frequent good musical number in a movie, and I haven't seen a great musical film in quite some time. Moulin Rouge! completely restored my faith in modern musicals, and in all good movies for that matter. This is quite simply the best romantic tale ever told, and an amazing odyssey through a visionary director's mind that is not easily forgotten.
That director of course is Baz Luhrmann, who has directed such films as Strictly Ballroom in 1992 and Romeo + Juliet in 1996. With Rouge, Luhrmann uses more energy than in any of films. The sheer sense and atmosphere in Rouge is all thanks to a marvellous director who really knows his stuff. Luhrmann is very artistic with the big picture and uses nifty little technical marvels to make the movie even more heart-warming and colourful (an example is of several scenes where the moon smiles down on Christian and Satine while they are dancing to `Our Song').
The performances by an all-star cast in the film also provide to the greatness of the movie. Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman are Christian and Satine, lighting up the screen with their stunning performances. It seems like these 2 actors we're meant for each other, a sign of really getting into your character - these 2 deserve Oscars! And to boot, they both have incredible singing voices. Jim Broadbent is almost equally fantastic as the huge, moustache-twirling Moulin Rouge owner Harold Zidler, and Richard Roxburgh is powerful and engrossing as the Duke, who is also after Satine. John Leguizamo doesn't disappoint on the comic side of things at the beginning, but him and McGregor also have a very powerful dramatic moment near the end.
The sets for this movie are what really set it ablaze. From the giant elephant to a windmill of a nightclub, the film is tightly edited and decorated brilliantly to bring the millennium side-story to life. The visual effects are also very good, and very noticeable. You can't really tell their visual effects, but the wizards on this movie used plenty of techniques (exploding colours, mist on rooftops, a brilliant swoop over Paris) to make this look more daring, and more artistic.
Unfortunately this may come as a love-it-or-hate-it film to some. Possible reasons people might not like it is because they don't like musicals, they think it was overstylized or possibly even melodramatic. I really loved this movie as you already know. I have no negativity towards musicals, I loved the way the style of the movie was over-the-top and flashy, and the drama was not at all cheesy or corny, it won my heart by using natural scenes and lines.Keep an open mind with Rouge and you'll be fine.
Overall, this is my best film of 2001, an overwhelming, sexy, daring, highly anticipated, brilliantly made, with kinetic energy and incredible musical numbers (Come What May is the best film song for the new decade!). I couldn't take my eyes off this movie, and it is one of my personal all-time greats. I might've not said much about this film to make you believe that, but trust me, this is an almost indescribable film, and no amount of adjectives than really sum up how much I loved the movie. See it now!
MY GRADE: A+
NOTE: If you buy the special-edition VHS you get a great making-of featurette with interviews with the cast and a couple of deleted scenes. It's worth the couple more dollars, trust me!

I hate people who dislike beyonce the hottest girl


i think people who don't see the movie can critize beyonce becauce she looks funny and it s the best black woman so you're stupid to say that it s a worse choice, (do you prefer Angie Stone?)because the actress must be a singer so it s the best choice and she is the best for workin it out the movie.

Good ol' film


I don't care what you say. This film is good, other than the directing. The streets of Gotham felt the same from BF but different, still. I don't know, but the film had a different feel. It was very colorful. Maybe TOO colorful.
Clooney was a good Batman. No doubt. The only character's who I didn't like were Bane and Ivy. I don't remember her having a poison kiss! And Bane! He's just too stupid of a character! Shwartzenneger (?) was a haunting dude. Alfred and Gordon were both played greatly again, even though there was not enough Gordon.
Overall, you should just rent it, but if you know ya like it, like me, BUY IT!

Quite enjoyable!


Nothing I didn't already know about Fox News and its comically pro-conservative/republican "newscasting". However, I do enjoy a good stab here and there, and since I stopped watching Fox News after 9/11, it was interesting to see what the Bushie bunch had been up to since the inception of my boycott. Love it!

Richard III - movie DVD cover picture
Absolute evil


Ian McKellen does an incredible job creating one of the most despicable characters ever on stage. There are lots of other good roles played, but McKellen's Richard dominated every scene.

The scenes supported him well, too. The script translated smoothly into a fictionalized London, somewhere between the two World Wars. This worked exceptionally well in a few places. For one, it was the last period when horse were still in common use. Without that fact, "My kingdom for a horse" would have fallen flat. It was also around the time when Hitler was starting to come to power, even if only later history knew what that truly meant. The director used that double anachronism with frightening effect, covering Richard in the uniforms and militaristic pageantry of that evil time.

I have to admit, this is not a play I know very well in any other presentation. It's not a part of English history that I know, either. In other words, I'm not a person who would normally have been drawn to this play. It drew me, though, and drew me in. Perhaps some absolute purist would only let this script be played in its native period - I am glad that the director did not suffer such narrowness of vision.

This is an exceptional staging of Richard III. It's the one to pick if you have a reluctant viewer. The British actors handle the language beautifully (even if some of the Americans don't), and the visual presentation is flawless.

Best of Woodman's Early Funny Movies


Along with "Curse of the Jade Scorpion", "Love and Death" is amongst the best of all Woody Allen's funny movies. A complete dearth of dull moments in what is the usual one-and-a-half-hour Woody Allen feature aside; it is most endearing to see how the sparks fly between Allen and Keaton (in her best comic role ever); and a clever dialogue with the effect of launching viewers into a whole new way of thinking (funny) and speaking (wittily) to boot. "Love and Death" is definitely one movie to be re-watched over and over again, be it rain or shine.
