Great Fight Flick


I bought the film to be entertained.
And thats the only reason I watch movies.
The plot does not matter as long as it has enough action to
pass a couple of hours.
The MTV version was pretty good. Its whats to be expected from an Americanized version of the movie. Kind of similar to US anime cut from original Japanese Anime.
The Korean Version was tons better. It was longer and showed a longer fight scene at then end between Jang Ryang(dal-sun) and the teachers.
I must admit, the lead teacher , MA, was my favorite character.
Totally hardcore. The Korean version of Spike of the Buffy/Angel series.

I watch the movie almost every day.

Chicago (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Enjoy it for what it is!!


Chicago was visually beautiful, well performed, and displayed some top-rate editing and directing. But ultimately, a movie needs to stand on its story.
This story is not only cynical, simplistic and unsympathetic--its also flawed. The characters were all very unsympathetic and corrupt--the only two redeemable ones getting shafted or executed. A story doesn't have to be uplifting or happy to be good. But it does have to be complete. The fact that Roxie's devoted husband just sort of meanders and disappears into the night is a violation of story-telling on the highest order.
I'm indifferent to musicals--I'll state that upfront. And yet, comparing Chicago to Moulan Rouge, I have to say that I'm shocked at the number of awards Chicago won. Moulan Rouge seemed superior to this movie in every way to the eyes of this layperson.
Ultimately, it was a movie I could respect, but not love.

I love this movie!


This is the greatest movie I own. It has everything you could ever want in it. Fighting, boozing, strippers, blowed up buildings and a monster truck. There is also a character who looks like the poor-man's Patrick Duffy and he gets his throat ripped out by a sweaty Patrick Swayze. The best part about this movie is that it makes no logical sense and you will understand that when you watch it. And you should watch it.

Take One Dose Daily and Call Me In The Morning


This film stars Hugh Jackman as the beloved comic book hero, Wolverine. There may have been some other people in the movie as well, I didn't really notice. Wait, I think there was a guy who shot laser beams out of his eyes; I noticed him because a couple of times he stood in front of Hugh Jackman, blocking my view. Seriously, this film does hail the first American appearance of what is surely a new star. As Wolverine, Jackman hits just the right notes of rage tempered with vulnerablity. Director Brian Singer deserves major kudos for channeling 40 years of best selling comic books into a comprehensible 2 hour movie, although much of the comic book mythology has been jettisoned. (Rogue, for example, has no prior history with either Mystique or Magneto.) Still, the spirit is here, and while the film occasionally bogs down a bit (everything to do with the bigoted senator is a bit of a snooze for me) it reenergizes whenever Jackman is on the screen, particularlly in his scenes with Rogue.X-Men 2 is in the works, and those who have read the script say it will be better than the first installment. With appearances by NightCrawler and Pyro, it looks like we will have many satisfying sequels to this unexpected gem.

Invisible Man - The Legacy Collection (The Invisible Man/Invisible Man Returns/Invisible Agent/Invisible Woman/Invisible Man's Revenge) - movie DVD cover picture
Surprisingly excellent


For being a film from 1933, The Invisible Man is a very good film. This DVD collection contains four other movies and a documentary.
The Invisible Man itself is not quite as good as its successors, however, it is well written and at times surprisingly original. The drawbacks are the Innkeeper's wife, who was (according to the documentary) hired for the entire reason I did not like her: she overreacts to everything. She's superstitious, overly suspicious of anyone, and screams an annoying scream that drives even the other prople in the inn batty. There is some mild humor and a bit of drama in The Invisible Man and Claude Rains does a passable job, with that voice that just creeps under your skin...

The Invisible Man Returns is a much better film and a true SEQUEL to The Invisible Man. Made in 1940, it stars VINCENT PRICE as a man accused of murdering his brother, and set to be hanged. The little brother of the original Invisible Man visits him (Vincent Price's character) in jail and gives him the injection to make him invisible, thus setting him free. The police chief is wise to this, recognizing the original Invisible Man's brother and is constantly blowing cigar smoke all around him, in hopes of finding the escaped convict. The acting is very good and the developments in the plot are strong and original. The biggest drawback is that Vincent Price spoke so softly in a few scenes, I could barely make out what he was saying even with my speakers at full blast. Good film, great ending. For a semi-sequel to this, Vincent Price reprised his "voice" role in Abbot & Costello Meet Frankenstein...

The Invisible Woman is not a sequel at all to any of the previous films. It is a bout a model who wants to give her boss a piece of her mind without her boss knowing who she is. When she sees an ad in the paper for "someone to become invisible" she cannot resist. I was annoyed at the speed the mail was delivered (put it in your mail box and it arrives within an hour at the destination), but that is just one plot hole. It is a comedy that has SHEMP HOWARD (from the Three Stooges) as a bumbling henchman with two fellow henchmen trying to find the invisibility machine for their exiled mob boss. There are a few scenes where I could imagine this being edited a bit and turned into a three stooges movie, as there happen to be three henchmen who are hired by a whiny, un-threatening GERMAN mob boss who is in Mexico... With the actress best known as the Wicked Witch of the West (from Wizard of Oz) as the scientists assistant, this is a very unusually well-acted and delightful comedy. Great story and excellent acting.

I will update this after watching the other two movies on the disc: The Invisible Agent and The Invisible Man's Revenge...

Better then others


I watched this series and was getting seriously hooked when they started to move it around. If they (FOX) would have left it alone it would have grown and been tweaked like most shows get after the first season. This show had a much better set of characters then "Enterprise" and it was alot more fun to watch. I agree that the western part was a bit overdone but if you were paying attention, the story was starting to get into the space aspect alot more, and the story was developing into something to keep people hooked until the next episode came on. Rumor is a movie is going to be made to help sort things out and wrap up the storyline, I will see it.

Roxanne - movie DVD cover picture
My favorite movie of all time


Roxanne is so captivating that I have watched it dozens of times and if I could take one movie to a desert island, it would be this one. Steve Martin's deliciously romantic screenplay and his masterful portrayal of Fire Chief C.D. Bales, combined with breathtaking British Columbian scenery and perfect casting make this movie an experience everyone should have. C.D.'s soliloquoy under Rozanne's window is easily the sexiest, most romantic scene I've ever seen in a movie, and he set the standard for my own definition of the perfect lover. There are many "morals" about love and friendship that inform this story, but the "medicine" goes down with sparkling class and flawless humor. I fell head over heels in love with C.D. Bales, big nose, big heart and all.
