Funny as hell

Man Robin Williams funny as hell. I pissed my pants i was laughin so damn hard. This is a great dvd. It has an easter egg that shows every cuss word he says it is hilarious. He goes on about so many diffrent topics. Its crazy. Someone must have put something in that water, he went threw about 20 bottles of it. My favorite part was when he was doin the bit about drunk scots inventing golf. " i wanna hit a ball in a gopher hole" "OH you mean like pool?" "Fu*k off pool! Not with a straight stick! With a little fu*ked up stick." " OH you mean like croquet?" "Fu*k croquet! Well put the ball hundreds of yards away. And well put tall grass and bushes just to fu*k with your ball. And at the end well put a flat spot with a flag just to give you hope. Then well put sand and bushes just to fu*k with your ball again!"In one word Id say this movie was Geniusly Awesome super terrificly pimped out. (OK i cheated a little)

Analyze This - movie DVD cover picture

The first time I saw this movie, I laughed so hard, it hurt. This was a wonderfully funny film. DeNiro was terrific except for the crying (once or twice would have been enough). I enjoyed watching Billy Crystal. He proves again he can do almost anything. The man has talent! I also enjoyed the performance of Joe Viterelli and would like to have seen more screen time for Chazz Palminteri. My compliments to Harold Ramis for making it work and for Tony Bennett. That was a nice touch. Salute.

Donnie Darko - movie DVD cover picture
Cellar Door

What can I say, with all of the crap that Hollywood has been producing these last few years, it's nice to know that there is still talent in the industry. This movie is the perfect example.I've heard so many different interpretations upon having conversations with friends about this movie. Just when I think every angle has been covered, someone else comes up with a new perspective. One friend has even suggested that the whole story can come across possibly from Cherita Chen's point of view because of her silent affection for Donnie and the book in which his name graces the cover.I'm not one for flashing back to the 80's, but this movie reminded me of the good music that came from those years. There is nothing like Echo and the Bunnymen's "The Killing Moon" to get me going. Hell, every time I hear it now, I automatically think of the movie. Plus, the Bush and Dukakis presidential election debate clip along with the excellent use of Duran Duran's "Notorious" was an added bonus. It's cliched to say this, but this is a movie for people who like to think instead of just soak up pointless plots. It's not as complicated as some may make it out to be and if this is Kelly's first major project, I can't wait to see what else he's got up his creative sleeve. Great performances. Great music. Great story. "Chut up" and check it out.

Definitely Worth Buying

Some friends and I saw this movie while in Vegas last year. It was awesome. I couldn't believe it didn't get more recognition. I have been waiting for this movie to come out on DVD so the rest of my friends can see it. It is one of those movies that keeps you guessing all the way till the end. Devious Beings is not only worth seeing it is worth buying!

The Contender - movie DVD cover picture
Smart dialogue, excellent actors. But not for everyone.

As a preliminary matter, I do not object to this movie's desire to be relevant, only to its mindless reductionism. The only reason this gets two stars instead of one is that it isn't *Battlefield Earth*. That said, this old-hollywood melodrama is as cheerless as it is dumb. What's so frustrating is that it might have been a much better movie, had it been written and directed by someone else. Joan Allen, Jeff Bridges and Gary Oldman have all been in first rate pictures (JA: *Pleasantville*, *Nixon*, *Face Off*; JB: *The Big Lebowski*, *Fearless*, GO: *Prick Up Your Ears*). Ditto the supporting cast, including Phillip Baker Hall, Christian Slater, Sam Elliot and, yup, Mariel Hemmingway. So what happened?

*The Contender* is at its worst when it is most solemn and self-contratulatory, as in the tortured moment when the candidate sums up to the committee why she ought to be Vice President. Or when Christian Slater's youthful congressman Webster moves lugubriously around a room in the White House looking at oil paintings, respectively, of Wilson, Lincoln, JFK, and Truman. This takes up about 5 minutes of film in a 93 minute movie. Or Jeff Bridges's bloviated President Evans offering Slater sage advice on political savvy and a shark-steak sandwich. "Webster, do you have a dictionary?" (this is an actual line). I could go on, but I'll spare you.

Bridges and Slater are terrible. Sam Elliot too. Not because they have no talent, but because they do and it is sooooo wasted on this crummy script. Phillip Baker Hall's character appears in one scene that appears to be an important plot moment, but that is dropped without explanation, so I'm sure he hopes no one will remember. The best bit is Mariel Hemmingway's walk-on scene as one of Joan Allen's victims. (Well, not Joan's victims, but her character's.) The rest of the performances are pure drek, including Allen's, who is one of our most talented actors. This is not the actors' faults, mind you. It's that the movie is so enfuriatingly pious, silly, and just plain dull.

A feast for the eyes and brain

Far beyond what so many sci-fi films have tried or will try to be. Visionary filmmaking by Ridley Scott that will never look outdated. The story, although a little hard to follow in some parts, makes you care about the characters - even the artificial humans. Other than Raiders of the Lost Ark, Harrison Ford's role as a futuristic detective is his best. Watch it, rewind it, and watch it again. Scott took his time on this one and it shows.

Impossible not to like

Unless you hate basketball, teenagers, Gene Hackman, or Indiana, it's impossible not to fall for this movie. It's one of the best feel-good movies ever made. We've got David vs. Goliath (the winning school only has about 65 kids in it); loyalty galore, especially with the star player refusing to play at first out of mistaken respect for the dead coach who preceded Hackman; an almost reformed alcoholic in Dennis Hopper with great basketball brains despite the fatal flaw; a little romance with Hackman and another teacher; and mystery (Hackman has a clouded past). What more could you want? The picture plays to our simplest emotions, and when it's over we cheer like crazy. Who cares if we've been had.

The Best Ever Adaptation

I've never seen a better book adaptation in my life. The costumes, sets and scenery are a visual feast. The screenplay and direction are just superb and the background music, what can I say, just fabulous but most of all the whole cast is perfectly put together and even the supporting characters acted very well indeed. Some of them may not look like the characters we have in mind but they acted their characters to parfection especially Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. I have seen other adaptation of PnP and they failed to capture the true character of Mr Darcy. Colin Firth showed every single emotions that Mr Darcy felt from the time he met Lizzy.No other Mr Darcy managed to convey the many different subtle emotional struggles of Mr Darcy that Jane Austen mentioned in her book. Colin Firth is the definitive Mr Darcy.This latest production of PnP is a must see. I was inspired to read the book after watching this excellent production. Now everytime I read the book the characters just come alive in my mind. The 1940 PnP movie is not close to the book at all but as a movie it is very entertaining. The 1980 adaptation is just plain awful, it bored me to tears. It is good as a stage play but as a movie Im not impressed.I would never be encouraged to read the book if I had seen the earlier version first. I recommend the 1995 production, it is a masterpiece.

Mein Krieg - My Private War - movie DVD cover picture

What is Mr. McNamara's bent? Gee, are all German soldiers supposed to fess up that they were involved in atrocities. Why don't we go further by making the rest of Germany three generations later fess up to atrocities. If you give a review, cut the righteous moralistic drivel that seems to accompany every review of the German perspective of WWII. God forbid that they may have actually been ordinary soldiers and not responsible for killing some baby, child, old woman, dog, etc. fill in the blank for atrocity.

I think Dark Angel is one of the best tv series ever created. Too bad FOX decided to cancel it. This series have everything in it, that includes romance, butt-kicking-action and humour.
