Great!


This series is great! I've read the original comics as well, and although they're not exactly the same, the anime follows it closely. It's totally hilarious! The best thing about the anime is the way it expresses itself. It uses all these anti-traditional methods, like one episode had real taped backrounds- the characters were cut and pasted on to it! And every episode has different methods! Unlike most anime it doesn't give you all these blanks where nothing much happens- just to make the episode longer and in addition, the series as well; the story is fast moving and sometimes so fast you better pay attention or you'll miss a punchline! Sometimes it can get confusing because of the wierd ways it expresses the scenes, but you'll get used to it!

Best Ranma Movie To Date


I have been a fan of Ranma 1/2 since my high school days, and way before Pok?mon was advertising it on it's videos. I have been involved in the fanfiction/fansites and fanclubs that follow this wonderful series from the genius mind of Rumiko Takahashi, and I think I can safely say that this is one of the best Ranma 1/2 plot lines out of all of the animated features (OAV, TV and Movie included) ever done.
I do not want to spoil the movie for you if you haven't seen it, but the basic plotline is that Ranma and the gang head out to sea in Kunou's new yacht and end up shipwrecked on an island. And island ruled by an illusion master prince, who happens to be looking for a bride, and is collecting young girls in order to make a good selection.
Suffice it to say a battle royal follows post haste when most of the girls are stolen from Ranma and the gang, and the movie winds down with Ranma making a HUGE sacrafice for Akane, along with demonstrating new techniques for both Ranma and Ryouga.
Over all if you like Anime you will like this DVD. If you like Ranma 1/2, you will love this DVD.

Da' Boys , Brent , JERRY , This DVD is required viewing !!


This concert DVD is one of the best things I have ever seen. The camera work is perfect and there is good visual work with the video lightshow. The setlist is basically perfect with maybe one exception. SetI Bertha//Cold Rain and Snow//Red Rooster//When Push come to shove//Masterpiece// Birdsong//Music never stopped Set II Hell in a Bucket//Uncle John's//Terrapin (2 tracks)// Drumzspace//Other 1//Wharf Rat//Throwing Stones// Not Fade Away//E:Knockin' w/Neville's. So as you can see the song selection is meaty and Jerry's face is HUGE!! This one is a must purchase and other bands such as Phish, Dave Matthews, and Widespread Panic should start makin' em like this. Enough said

A visual feast!


In addition to my last review, I must say that if you order this DVD at Amazon's low, LOW price, you will definitely get a feast for your eyes! With all of the elaborate dance numbers and lights, you'll just keep playing the dances over and over again! The sound is so outstanding that nothing will hold you back from jumping off your couch and dancing! You'll also love blurting out your favorite Showgirls' lines!
This movie is, I think, the best movie ever made!
Come on, now you know you've gotta get a copy for yourself!

At Last!


I was looking to buy a treat for myself while shelving DVD's at Borders. I dropped my armful of movies when I came across this on the shelf in Cult Movies. My previous choices of Wallace & Gromit or director's cut of Hellboy were put back at once. My brother has a carefully guarded VHS from off cable from years ago. I doubt it will even play now.

Now I own this twisted little film. It is crisp, widescreen, and as pretty as this pervy movie can be. I've long been a fan of Danny Elfamn and gave a squeel when he spoke of his current project in the documentry. I didn't know much at all about the making of this movie, so when it turned out to be a history of Oingo Boingo as well, I was delighted.

Now you can own this movie and share it with friends instead of just trying to discribe it as I have for years.

A BAND THAT SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN ! ! !


A great preformance from a group long forgotten by the classicrock stations here in the U.S.A little disappionted at first because it was during the day andwas missing the classic Triumph stage light show,,,,,but on another viewing I realized it was about the music.And it is truely one of the best you'll see from any band of thatgenre. Rik Emmett was laying riffs that made other guitar playersfamous well after he came along.I got the new DVD,,,, Night of Triumph Live.Alot of overdubs and camera shots of the crowd that it doesn'thave the same vibe as being as much a " LIVE " video like the U. S. Festival.Rik Emmett is alive and well and has recent releases availablethrough the Canadian market. He's doing alot of nice jazz stuffnow which shows his love of music and not just going for onecertain style or sound.

What the Bleep Do We Know!? - movie DVD cover picture
Teaches us to be open minded and always open our heart. ..


Fascinating is the only word I can explain about this movie/documentary. I had similar experience as what Amanda in the movie, though... the movie has drawn the character change of thought patterns/beliefs in a very dramatic process. In reality, I know the breakdown of my thoughts and beliefs was very fast (well, because I was on the edge of either letting my life go permanently or to breakdown the entire thoughts and beliefs which causes the depressive moods), but it has always been the two steps forward and one step backward process. And yes... I am diagnosed as clinically depressed. I am so glad that finally someone is using arts and science to create this beautiful piece of documentary about how powerful our thoughts and beliefs can control our lives, our own world.

This whole movie merges science and spirituality to create a new reality about what thoughts and beliefs can do to our own perceptions of reality. The first step is we become aware of our emotions, aware of our thoughts and beliefs... This awareness is like us becoming the scientist in our mind and soul. Only when we become conscious being aware of and accepting the existence of our both positive and destructive thoughts within ourselves, can we turn/return that energy to gentle love and compassion. The reality described in the religions forces our mind to live in the mental prison, while the truth is that religion was supposed to be the gateway towards spiritual freedom. The best thing is that we always thought our past is going to carry to our future... Only realize it will only be true when we are stuck in the unconscious patterns of thinking... When we learn, when we heal from the seemingly unbearable painful experience, can we truly create a new dimension of reality, a new dimension to live.


NOTES: The only two notes are as follows:
1. Open your heart and mind... even you have the tendency to pre-judge

When watching the movie, you might want to let the movie inspire you than pre-judging what these researchers say. These people study the quantum physics topic for years and we can only give them the credit of their work by opening up mind and heart to listen... If you decide later what they say makes absolutely no sense or you disagree, that is ok... but please open up your mind to understand and to listen... so that you get what you pay for the DVD.

2. Set realistic expectations about the change of thoughts and beliefs

Inner transformation (change of thoughts and beliefs) is a two step forward and one step back process. Amanda's mind seemed to be healed so dramatically in the movie and it is not the reality. I was put in a pretty life-threatening situation... and even with that push, it is still a two step forward one step back... one year long therapy to reach the state of mind that is more conscious than my last 24 years of life. Having the intention, the persistence to change is a good start. Having the commitment and constantly inviting love and compassion are the keys to explore the unlimited growth potential.


I hope you will enjoy watching the movie and feel we learn something new...
