Great


I remember this movie from years ago, and am always happy when I find it on T.V. I finally decided to get the DVD for myself and am thrilled I did. They did a good job, look wise and sound wise. I could not be happier with it.

My Comment


I believe this movie The Day After Tomorrow is a movie made telling people that what could be possible in 10,000 years. It's a very exciting movie but somewhat sad in the end. This movie as I said is telling people what could be possible and to be aware of such thing might happen. This movie is a great movie and it deserves an Oscar. The scary part of this movie is the beginning when ice hits everywhere. The guy that was talking on his cell phone and ice just slams in his face. That was awful. The exciting part is the middle when the girl and boy meet and when water and thunder came through the streets as the girl tried to save the people in the taxi and the guy tried to rescue her and at the same time they got in the building and everything got destroyed. The most horrifying part is when everything got frozen. That cold and all the buildings got frozen. It was horrible. It's a good thing that they were at least in the library because they had enough stuff to burn to have fire to keep warm. Such a movie all is played nicely. This movie deserves an award.

Where did that come from?


It sounds like a joke, doesn't it? What do you get when you combine a writer who used to work on Law and Order, an ex-Australian soap star, an African American actor who's been in such diverse films as Dracula 2000, Scream 2, and a remake of Alfie, a woman I've never heard of, the boy from The Dead Poet Society, and 1/2 of a British comedy duo playing an American, and what do you get? Suprisingly enough, the answer is sheer brilliance!
This show is all about Hugh Laurie. He dominates every scene. When with Fry, he was always in the background. Fry is so over-the-top that all our attention is focused on him. It seemed as though Laurie was just along for the ride. But, after watching this show, you'll realise something else: Hugh Laurie is an exceptionally talented actor. He's just subtle.
This show really wouldn't be that good if it wasn't for him. Just another CSI meets ER. Who cares? But House's... unique bedside manner and code of ethics make it really stand out.
To say much more about the show would just be unnecessary

Advise and Consent - movie DVD cover picture
Behind closed doors revelation of government


Under the deft guidance of venerable director Otto Preminger and an all star cast, "Advise and Consent", based on an Alan Drury novel gives us an unfettered seldom seen view of the machinations of Washington politics.

An assertive and ailing president played by Franchot Tone is trying to push through the confirmation of his nominee for Secretary of State Robert Leffingwell. Leffingwell, an intellectual is played by Henry Fonda. Senate majority leader Munson played superbly by Walter Pidgeon is being used by the president to strong arm support for Fonda among his colleagues. The opposition is led by South Carolina senator Cooley played by acting nonpareil Charles Laughton in his final role before his death. Laughton still believing in the chivalrous and cavalier ways of the old South is vehemently opposed to the nomination. It seems that Fonda, as a student, sat in on some meetings with leanings toward Communism. In these Cold War times, such a background was unthinkable for a potential secretary of state.

Humble and even tempered Vice president Harley Hudson played nicely by Lew Ayres is strangely being left out of the loop in the confirmation battle. A Senate subcommittee is formed to investigate Fonda and is lead by a young Don Murray playing Utah senator Brig Anderson who is being backed by Laughton. The always terrific Burgess Meredith is brought in as a witness to smear Fonda exposing his Communist affiliations.

These revelations start the wheels turning for the behind the scenes intrigue. Tone fearing his demise desperately wants to place Fonda as a man who will continue his policies. Dirty politics rears its head as Laughton digs up dirt on Fonda and Murray, the head of committee is threatened with the exposure of a homosexual affair in his past.

The superbly acted movie ambles towards its conclusion which will ultimately make these actions an exercise in futility. Excellent performances in supporting roles are turned in by Peter Lawford, Betty White and veteran character actors Paul Ford and Edward Andrews.

Rosemary's Baby - movie DVD cover picture
A "devilishly" good movie


Ira Levin's classic tale of gothic horror in 1960's Manhattan is wonderfully brought to life by Roman Polanski in the film version. The movie has much more depth and strength of characterization than the book, and the biggest surprise, when the movie first opened, was Mia Farrow's absolutely great performance as Rosemary. The movie stays very close to the book throughout, and the actors are terrific. John Cassavetes is excellent as Rosemary's low-life actor husband who sacrifices her to his ambition without a second thought; Ruth Gordon won a well-deserved Oscar for best supporting actress as the delightfully wacky witch next door; Sidney Blackmer gives a chilling performance as her sinister husband whose name is an anagram that sends Rosemary hurtling down a spiral chute of terror and panic, and Ralph Bellamy is total perfection as the evil Dr. Sapirstein. The two best scenes in the movie are the scene in which Rosemary, who wants a baby more than anything else in the world, finds herself being impregnated by God-knows-what, and the scene toward the movie's end when she realizes just what she was impregnated with. The movie was shot mostly in and around the Dakota, the grand old Upper West Side co-op that lends itself remarkably well to the creepy projection of a haunted house, the cinematography and film editing are excellent, and Polanski's direction proves that a great horror movie doesn't have to be a slasher film to effectively scare the bejesus out of you. There's no blood, no gore, no violence; just a great psychological horror ride, and it works.

REAL episodes are...


I did a LOT of research. Found out from the actual distributor that the episodes on this DVD are:
Ep. 55 Stone Flower and Shippo's First Love
Ep. 56 Temptress in the Mist
Ep. 57 Fateful Night in Togenkyo, part 1
Everone else is a little confused. No wonder! The don't list the episodes in the description OR on the box front anymore. Hope this helps.

Another Carroll Ballard Classic...Fly Away Home is stunning!


As a longtime admirer of Director Carroll Ballard, I was thrilled when the Special Edition of "Fly Away Home" was released on DVD. I wish Anchor Bay had done the same treatment to Never Cry Wolf. But this film is a classic for all ages. Its parallel story to the real life Bill Lishman is more than entertaining, it tugs at one's heart. And Anna Paquin is stunning as Amy as she is in every film.
FLY AWAY HOME is also an environmental manifesto because it calls attention to the need for less development and more care for our habitat. I've rarely seen any comments along these lines and if you watch the movie closely, you'll realize that this is a call for change in scraping the land off and piling up huge neighborhoods and industry. It is testimony to the need for conservation in all countries.
Finally, Fly Away Home is a family film that breaches the silliness that too many youth movies have evolved to. This movie treats younger viewers with intelligence, not like an etcha-sketch.
I believe anyone with heart and soul will enjoy this movie for it will touch both.

Ring Two - movie DVD cover picture
The ONLY horror movies that give me nightmares!


Back in the 1980's, when I was in Elementary School, I saw my very first horror movie, Nightmare on Elm Street part 4. After that, I didn't see another horror movie until Middle School in the early 90's, I saw Friday The 13th part 7. After seeing Friday the 13th, I started really liking horror movies and started watching everything from Stephen King, every Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, a lot more that aren't so popular and of course the Halloween movies. I was able to watch horror movies for years and years without being affected really. It was to the point that some horror movies were just putting me to sleep because they weren't scary. That is, until I saw The Ring and The Ring Two!

I saw The Ring in the theatre and from that first time, it scared me to death. I literally jumped during many scenes and after it was over, it wasn't really over for me. That night after I got back home, I couldn't sleep with the light off. I didn't want to see any static on my TV because I was so scared. My friend who I saw it with kept mentioning a static TV just to scare me and it worked. I have also had a few nightmares about Samara coming after me since I saw The Ring and especially, The Ring Two. The scariest thing that has happened to me was right after I saw The Ring Two in the theatre and that evening after I fell asleep, I swear I heard Samara speaking to me!! I swear it!!! It was her same voice that you hear in The Ring and it was like she was talking right in my ear!! The only thing I actually heard her say was the very first thing and very last thing she said. I heard her talking for a while but everything in the middle, I just didn't understand because it was like I was half awake and half asleep. All I was able to hear her say was "I never sleep because I'm not dead yet" and the very last thing she said was "wake up." After this happened, I decided to get rid of The Ring DVD, Rings DVD and not even buy The Ring Two because apparently, these films are going to just scare me to where I'll be terrified for the rest of my life!!

You know that saying, be careful what you wish for because you might just get it? Well I got a lot more than I wished for all right!!! For years before The Ring came out, I was wishing for a horror movie that would really scare me and this movie scaring me is an understatement!! I never wanted to be scared so bad by having nightmares!! Just the other day, I was watching The Travel Channel and there was this show on about different haunted places and this one mansion was built by an Opera singer who used to perform in her house to people and I thought it was interesting and it didn't scare me in the least UNTIL they had to show the Opera singer's ghost and the ghost looked EXACTLY like Samara, had her long black hair over her face like Samara and she started walking toward the camera which meant, towards me as well. For a second I was freaking out thinking she was going to come out of the TV!!! Before she got too close, I covered my eyes and then they showed another part in the mansion and I just changed the channel!! I think the part that freaks me out the most is when Samara is out of the well and coming toward the TV and in The Ring Two when you see her climbing the well, that creepy way she climbs the well!! For some reason, I cannot get those visions out of my head!!! So to say this movie is still affecting me to this day is a HUGE understatement!!! The thing I just cannot understand is WHY any other horror movie just either puts me to sleep or just wonderful to watch because of the acting or just cool to watch?? I'll NEVER understand what it is about Samara and The Ring and The Ring Two that just terrifies me!! Maybe it's the static TV and the fear of Samara actually coming out of the TV!

Greatest Movie Ever Made!


This movie was hilarious. It is definitely a movie for teens. I am not joking when I say that this monkey walks, talks, and acts like a human. Plus he throws his balls at unsuspecting victims. You will fall over laughing, especially if you are under the influence. The jokes in this movie are not funny at all, but this monkey acts like he is constantly on crack, and he always jitters and shakes. Plus you can tell that everytime he is snowboarding that someone pushed him down the mountain and he is trying to stop, but he can't. In one scene you can see the guys hand pushing him off of a jump. It was probably the funniest thing I have ever seen. Go see this movie... no, wait, go buy this movie! It will be worth it!
