Anne of Green Gables The Continuing Story (III)


I thought this was a wonderful ending to a great series. I was especially moved by the symbolism of one of the final scenes (at the train stop.) If you have watched all three movies you will realize the train stop bench is where Matthew found Anne waiting for him all those years ago. I don't want to ruin the ending for you, so just be sure to remember that when the train stop bench is revisited in this movie...

The Fog (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
VERY SCARY!


What you can't see won't hurt you... It'll kill you. From master of Horror John Carpenter comes and elegant and scary thriller thet will envelop you with its terrifying intensity and chilling suspense. The sleepy seaside village of Antonio Bay is about to learn the true meaning of the word "vengenance." For this seemingly perfect town masks a guilty secret- a past steeped in greed and murder. Exactly one hundred years ago, the treasure ship "Elizabeth Dane" was horribly wrecked in a thick, errie fog under mysterious circumstances. Now, shrouded in mist, the long-dead mariners have returned from their watery grave to exact a bloody revenge. Starring Adrienne Barbeu in her film debut, Jamie Lee Curtis Oscar winner John Houseman and Janet Leigh The Fog waits... to creep into your soul and chill you to the bone!!!! This is my favorite John Carpenter movie. It used to be "Halloween" but that was before I saw "The Fog". Once I did I changed my mind. This was a hell of alot better than "Halloween". My favorite part was when the survivors make a final stand against the deadly Fog in an abondened church. They risked their lives to save others. This film will have you on the edge of your seat from its exceptional beginning to is terrifying conclusion. Once you hit play you won't hit stop until the very end. This movie rocks!!!! I can't wait for the ramake. I want to see it for 2 reasons. 1.) I loved the original. 2.) Maggie Grace is in it. She is HOTTTT!!!!

One of My Favorites


I first watched this as a very small child, and it has remained one of my favorites ever since. This movie sparked my imagination and started my great love for science-fiction reading. Some of my acquaintances have found it to be corny, but I think this is a great family movie. Those of you that have enjoyed the Harry Potter series will also enjoy Willow.

A Love Song for Bobby Long - movie DVD cover picture
Fantastic, engrossing and beautifully filmed movie


This is a slow-moving picture, and rightfully so. If you want action-packed-stuff-blowing-up, this is not the movie for you. The acting is just awesome, Travolta and Johansson are at their best and it was a stunning introduction for me to Gabriel Macht's ability.

The storyline is good, but I felt that this was much more an examination of characters than development of a complex plot. Some have written reviews the movie is predictable but I'm not sure that unpredictability is really the point of a movie such as this.

The movie is steeped in New Orleans and uses this location to its utmost potential. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a deep-thinking movie with fascinating character studies.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (25th Anniversary Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Only for movie lovers...


Yes, this movie is very bizzare and includes weird, disgusting sexual content, but true movie lovers look beyond that. Brilliant acting, get-up-and-dance songs, and wonderful (yet bizzare) costumes, make this a must see film for anybody who calls themselves a movie lover.
Although, it altogether doesn't really deserve its R rating, still be warned this isn't a kids movie, so forget O'Brien's quote "It's a film any 10 year old boy would enjoy..." Notice the key word there "would." This movie is on my TOP 5 MOVIE LIST, but I don't consider myself a "Frankie Fan," or Rocky Horror worshipper. Most people don't even give it a chance after hearing it's about a transexual transvestite alien that made a creation just to have sex with him...so don't let that scare you away.
By the time the movie's halfway over, when everyone's singing and you're singing along, you really don't give a [heck] who's having sex with who, you just want to get up and dance!

Great Show


Upon tthe first appearance of Ben Vereen in this play, I knew i was going to have some fun watching it. As everyone knows this play is Bob Fosse record breaker. (As we know he became the first director to win a tony / Oscar/ and Emmy for directing in the same year.) And now I can see why. The script is a delight and bursting with laughter, and the story is a remarkable tale of self discovery. How lesser is greater and greater is lesser. and being conveyed with Stephen Schwartz's score. Though original the music definitely is, however the orchestrations cause it to bear resmeblance to Godspell. (Also by Schwartz) but I refuse to deduct points for this video. (On the CD maybe) But this video is just fun all throughout the way and aided by Fosse's excellent interpretive dances to promote discretion for the sex scenes. Which instead makes it something to laugh at. I can confirm that you'll have an exhilarating 1 and 40 minutes

Absolutely Amazing


I loved Wallace And Gromitt from the moment I saw them in The Wrong Trousers. Now I love Ginger, the strong-willed hen from Nick Park's amazing full-length feature.
Anyone who has enjoyed the great prisoner of war films (The Great Escape, The Grand Illusion, Stalag, etc.) will absolutely love this tale of chickens trying to escape from a chicken farm. As each plan to escape meets with failure, hopes begin to sag. But when they learn that the farmer's wife wants to turn them all into pies, desperation takes hold. Then hope springs again as a flying rooster crashes into the camp. Just what happens after that will have to be discovered by viewing this gem.
Once again Nick Park shows that he has an encyclopedic knowledge of films and just what really made them tick. He then takes this knowledge and weaves it seamlessly into his films.
Like many movies, this is one where you will want to sit through the credits as the fun is not quite over until the very end.

H.G. Wells' The War of the Worlds - movie DVD cover picture
An enchanting movie in the gothic horror vein.


This movie took me by surprise. I was expecting a low budget version of the upcoming Cruise/Spielberg vehicle, but I got something entirely different.

The movie is unique. From it's slow confident build-up, to the Martian invasion, to its moody battles with the Martians and the Earth's fall to their dominance, the filmmaking is resplendent.

Created like an old newsreel movie on a hand driven camera, the very core of this movie is transcendent. It has a commanding sureness of its approach. I felt like I was there, living with the characters as they awakened from their sleepy world to realize there is more than humans at the top.

Director Timothy Hines seems to have bitten off alot as he is credited as editor, photographer and director, but he sustains a balance that is hard to achieve in a three hour drama. I remember the endless camel shots in Lawrence of Arabia and an abundance of marching in Sparticus, and this movie has similar scenes. But they are in the book. It is what Wells described and Hines captures them in a way that makes you feel how hard it was to get around back then.

Some modern viewers might be impatient with this as everything is handed to us quickly today. Buzzing from place to place while taking phone calls and checking in with the internet, I can see where it would be hard for some to understand a time when people did less in a day. When they took time to enjoy a cup of tea or read a newspaper. People mostly walked back then. The carriage was for long journeys and the fast transport was the train only.

If one can slow down enough to let the film take you, it will, and the ride will be worth it.

The special effects are not like effects you have seen. They don't try to hide that fact that they are effects. They are more like jewels skillfully attached to the story. Just enough to fill out Wells'es vision.

The actors did a fine job and were perfectly believable in the roles, save for British accents that came and went from time to time. But this was not a distraction as the characters attempts to grasp what was happening all too quickly to their world was right. Jamie Lynn Sease did a superb job as a pouty young girl trying to be a woman and take care of her sister-in-law who is falling apart under the pressure. Anthony Piana is subtle and very watchable. Susan Goforth does a fine job as a sheltered wife who wants more freedom to decide her own destiny.

The music blends nicely with the style, which in itself is a tribute to musical scores that were once fuller and allowed to support the film. The Martian theme is done with heavy brass and the humans theme is done with strings. The writer's theme is light at first then slowly transists to a darker more serious mood. The artilleryman has a drum theme and human death's are scored with an operatic scope.

This was a film like no other. A bold and masterful work that will absolutley not appeal to some of the post video game ultra stimulation needing crowd. This is not the Fast and the Furious. This movie unfolds like an enchanting dream that slips into a gothic nightmare.

I was fascinated to the end. This movie will live for many years to come.
