Watch and learn and watch some more.


Hollowood today can use a star like Holden; relatable, easy on the eyes and a damn good actor. Holden had already established himself before this film was made with Born yesterday (a must buy). But this film was designed to show he was a great actor but it went way above that, it showed he was a master at his craft. The main tool of the film is Holden's voice the script is just slick enough and well timed by Holden to give his character a swarmy almost dis-likable feel. I say almost due to the fact that Holden's screen presence is so strong that you unconciously want Holden to be the hero. The hero is needed in this intricately weaved story of a group of men imprisoned in an enemy camp and the one man who betrays them for luxury favors. It's a take on human morals at its best and never for a minute does Wilder's direction of the supporting cast let you down. The christmas party scene is both heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time. To own this film is to marvel at one of the most underrated war films of all time. When one of they American G.I.'s has "escaped" the german's wonder how. Since the film opens with two prisoners being caught and killed by the Germans. Even though their plan has been so well crafted. All the G.I.'s are dragged out and questioned of his where abouts. You will be too, since Wilder makes you not aware of where the prisoner has escaped too! Brilliant! The film is stark, bare and shoking on every level of the pains of being secluded from your country and your personel space.

Cats & Dogs (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A keeper!


This movie would have been more enjoyable if the humans weren't in it. The humans were just boring, and their acting wasn't very good. The whole human plot wasn't very original either. It was the same old work obsessed father who doesn't spend time with is father storyline. The cats and dogs were hilarious, especially the russian spy cat and mr tinkles. The only problem w/ the dogs were they didn't have a personality. They weren't really fun. However, it was still funny to watch dogs and cats fight matrix style. I'd recommend you to see this movie for the cats and dogs scenes, and when the humans come on take a quick nap!

Neat Idea


I really liked the idea of the separate plot line that was created just for these shorts. I also think it important to see this to understand more about Matrix Reloaded (and also look at Enter the Matrix for more info on the Matrix world).

The Best Movie I Have Seen In Many Moons.


I think that everybody should see this movie. It has many funny parts and I believe that you would enjoy it immensely. Maybe I am going to far to say that you should buy several copies so you have backups incase your VCR eats the tape. Do you know what this movie is worth? Well, "In Philladelphia, it's worth fifty bucks." And to me, it is priceless.

This is possibly the richest film I have ever seen.


As well as my favorite. I'd been looking for it on video for years, scouting the TV listing for the rare times that TNT or AMC would show it. This is simply a magnificent piece of cinema, with incredibly graceful camera work, classic characters, and simply the best score I've had the pleasure to hear. The music itself is reason enough to watch the film. I know, I know, it's long and maybe a little slow at times, but this isn't Bruce Willis here, this is art. I've been tellng people about this movie for years. Spread the word.

One Hour Photo (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
CHILLING!!!


This is TRUE HORROR. This is a psychological horror film, wich means it plays with your mind rather than show you creepy visuals. Yes this film does have some creepy visuals (especially the dream sequences), but it makes the viewer use their minds in order to scare them. You do have to pay attention to this film, or nothing in here will scare you. The truly chilling part of the movie is it's powerful soundtrack, without that this wouldn't have been any good. Another scary aspect of this film is that this could actually happen. In other words, this is real. This is one you must see alone in the dark.

Celebrate the bad times, baby!


Wow.
I'll conclude early on: This movie is GOOD. VERY VERY GOOD.
Now that I've come to THAT conclusion, let me begin with the fact that I was rather hesitant on seeing a Dogme film since Lars Von Trier's Breaking the Waves and Dancer in the Dark, although I found them to be good films, bored the ... out of me. BUT! It seems our friend Thomas Vinterberg... likes to spice up his projects.
This movie is provocative, experimental. It takes no recessions in terms of a storyline, which gives us a knacking good time in its jarring innovation. I suppose part of that innovation is the level of shock that the movie contains, but also part of that innovation is the amount of HUMOR this movie approaches taboo subjects as sexual abuse (and even racial discrimination).
If you want to be entertained, feel artsy but at the same time, not be bored or feel horribly confused due to "ingenius" incoherency, this film is it.

An excellent movie of good, evil, and love.


Superman, the movie, is an excellent telling of a baby sent to earth because his parents loved him to much too stay on a dying planet. Superman vs. Lex Luthor poses an excellent example of good vs. evil, and the opening romance of Superman and his only love, Lois Lane is classic. An excellent movie for anyone who wants action, adventure, and a little bit of romance wrap up in one movie.

Save the Last Dance - movie DVD cover picture
The BEST Movie!!!!!!!!!!


Save The Last Dance is quite a bit smarter, and more entertaining, than the majority of what some people call teenybopper flicks. Much of this is due to the performances of Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas. I know Thomas only from a small role in Cruel Intentions (one of my guilty pleasures from 1999), but Stiles always seems to bring an added depth to her movies, from 10 Things I Hate About You to Hamlet. This movie's no different. She's the protagonist, the heart and soul of the movie, and she doesn't disappoint.
Stiles is Sarah Johnson, a suburban teen whose life is torn apart when her mother is killed in a car accident en route to her daughter's ballet recital. Sent to live with her estranged father Roy (Terry Kinney), a down-on-his-luck jazz musician, she is forced to adapt to her new environment -- inner city Chicago. There she enrolls in a school in which she is pretty much the only color. She makes friends with Chenille Reynolds (Kerry Washington), a single mother, and her brother Derek (Sean Patrick Thomas), a smart kid who is at a crossroads in life. She also makes enemies with Nikki (Bianca Lawson), who wants Derek all to herself, and Malakai (Fredro Starr), Derek's best friend and convicted criminal, who's swiftly descending into a life of crime. Needless to say, a relationship develops between Sarah and Derek, and they help each other: he gets her involved in dance again, and she opens his mind to the possibilities of life outside the hood.
Save The Last Dance is more realistic than many of its counterparts. The high school looks like a real high school. The dance club is more like a dance club; ie, some people dance, some don't, and nobody breaks out into a quasi-Busby Berkeley style group dance number. And the actors make their characters seem like real people. Director Thomas Carter and screenwriters Duane Adler and Cheryl Edwards bring up a number of issues that make the movie more than just another teen flick. If you're a romantic, the ending will leave you with a huge smile on your face, and perhaps even choke you up. It's definitely worth taking a look at.
