Sonic the Hedgehog - Super Sonic - movie DVD cover picture
Greatest Sonic Cartoon Ever!


Though it didn't include characters that later appeared in the games (i.e. Knuckles, Amy), I still think SatAM is the best Sonic cartoon series out there! The series was much darker and much more interesting than the plot for the games, which added to its appeal. It was my favorite cartoon when I was younger, and I taped a bunch of episodes. I was thrilled when I found out a few episodes made it to DVD. I only wish they would release more! Some people complain about Tails' role in the series, but had the series continued, his role was going to become more like that of the games. I highly recommend this to any Sonic fan. It's only a few bucks, so what's the harm?

Shadowbuilder - the original story


Philosophically, the movie is very interesting!Movies like these make you think about the purpose of creation, the purspose of evil, the purpose of suffering, the purpose of ethics. I find the point of view of the SHADOW CREATURE and his cosmovision, very intriguing, interesting and attractive. The shadow's IDEA of "undoing" creation is really wonderful! It would mean the end of all suffering and tears, and therefore the end of all joys, the end of all evil and of all goodness, the end of darkness and the end of light. The purpose or aim of the SHADOW in this movie, if it had been accomplished, would've meant even his (the Shadow's) own destruction. Wow, that would have been wonderful! A universe with NO Light and NO darkness. A perfect "nothingness" without demons and without angels, that's what the "shadow" wanted! (That's what I understood.)Unfortunately the movie ends "happily", that means suffering and evil and joy and light will continue to "co-exist". That's a sad ending, philosophically and ethically speaking! Nevertheless it was a wonderful movie, even with that sad ending! The Shadow was NOT defeted. And the LIGHT is not the absolute winner. That's a true fact of life itself. Creation is a mixture of light and darkness. And the "MIXTURE" itself is what is "SAD" (from the point of view of the SHADOW and cosmologically speaking). Every man has a dark side and a SHADOW in his soul, as well as a shiny side. There is not a single MAN that is 100% LIGHT or 100% SHADOW (or darkness).

PICTURE QUALITY: Fullscreen format not digitally remastered, lots of artifacts and grain ("as seen on TV"); nevertheless enjoyable
SOUND QUALITY: Presented in the original sound format; nothing special about it; the CDs sound a bit better than the videos but that is not a problem
EXTRA MATERIAL: Just a 23rd "short film" - exactly the same as on the VHS version
GOOD REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BUY THIS DVD:- What DM fan would not like to have all their videos?
No difference between the VHS version and this DVD but on DVD the quality doesn't suffer due to endless watching sessions :)

Elmo Saves Christmas - movie DVD cover picture
Its a "Groundhog Day" for Christmas


Well, my son and I have watched this this almost 365 times. He loves it! I love it because it shows the breakdown of society on Sesame Street, and its Christmas Again, everyday. See Big Bird, The Count, Maria, and Bob have a breakdown! See an upset Easter bunny trying to sell Easter eggs on Christmas. Grover sells the christmas trees into extintion. Nobody works and people and puppets wander Sesame Street. The Hooper store, Fix It Shop and Finders Keepers all go out of business, because of Elmo's wish for it be to Christmas everyday. Kinda like Groundhog Day but its Christmas everyday. I think it OK for the kids to see, but very funny for parents to see the puppets breakdown! See it and laugh!

DVD title: The Alamo
Productgroup: DVD
The Alamo - movie DVD cover picture
one of the best movies ever made on the Alamo


as far as historical reference, it's not a documentary, but this movie is awsome. i've been watching The Alamo since i was a little kid. i pratically have the entire movie memorized in my head. the music is great in film, the guitars and mexican sounding music is relaxing. my favorite part as music goes is when the Mexicans are surrounding the Alamo and all you hear is the drums for like 5 minutes. Sounds awsome.
as far as the movie goes, this was a huge production and the Alamo still stands today! The real Alamo of course is in San Antonio, but the Alamo for this movie stands in Bracketville, TX, where other movies have been made. John Wayne stars, produces, and directs this one of a kind film. truly a great film by a great man.
of course, in every Wayne movie, there is always a love story of some sort, and the Alamo has a short love story. The Alamo centers around 185 Texans and fellow men fighting for their independence from Mexico and General Santa Anna, ruler of Mexico. the movie stars Richard Widmark (Jim Bowie) and Laurence Harvey from The Manchurian Candidate as Colonel William Barrett Travis. great movie and great cast. the actual battle scene rocks. tons of explosions and action.
there are 2 sad parts in the movie. the first sad part is the day before the battle. all the men are together talking about life, because they know tommrrow they are going to die. the background music sets the right tone and i like Davy Crocket's quote during this scene. one of the guys asks him "What ya thinkin Davy?" and John Wayne (Davy Crockett) replies, "Not thinking, just remembering."
the second sad part is after the battle is over, and Lady Dickinson is leaving with her child and the boy. all the Mexican Soliders are standing around, there are some bodies of the men on the ground, and then Santa Anna makes his soliders stand when she's leaving. he also takes off his hat as a sign of respect.
what i liked about this movie is that John Wayne makes both sides look galiant and brave. the men of the Alamo know they are going to die, but they still stay to fight for what they believe in. then he makes the Mexican soilders look honorable twice. the first time, Santa Anna asks that all women and children be evacutated before he attacks, and this takes place.the second instance is right after the first attack, which happens right after the women and children are released. the Tennessian boys are standing around and one of them says "even though i was killing them, i was proud of them. men dying for what they believe in."
the DVD features include about a 40 mintue feature on the making of the Alamo. this is where you really get to see how much The Alamo ment to John Wayne and just how loyal of a man he really was.
The Alamo is a classic that everybody should watch at least one time in their life. great film that to me, will always be remembered as John Wayne's greatest work.

Dark Victory - movie DVD cover picture
A real tear jerker


There is something about women that requires them to cry now and then for their well being. Do not ask me what it is. Viewing this movie periodically seems to accomplish that purpose.
It evidently was the custom to withhold information from each other and be stoic about medical problems. If you tried that today you would be sued and there would be no movie.
However if this one works for her then you are ready for the big time "Now Voyager (1942) ASIN: B000021Y6K" where they say "Don't ask for the moon--we have the stars"
Of course if you just like stoic doctors then watch "People Will Talk (1951) ASIN: 630310245X" with Cary Grant

Gummo Rules! Direct your attention below


When I went to see this movie as a midnight special, I was expecting a gross explict film about dogs being impailed on posts, and misfit kids having plesurable sex with partners of extremly young age. What I got was a movie that brought out the horrors of life in a junky small town. A movie with characters so rich in feeling that it could've been a documentary. This movie was a movie that couldn't have been made better. IT made Harmony Korine's other movie "Kids" look like utter trash. It's a movie that should be seen by everyone. A great landmark in 90's films. So Janet Maslin,and leonard Maltin you both can rot for all I care. A master piece.

Dead Man - movie DVD cover picture
Best movie of the 90's


This movie haunted me for days after I saw it during its criminally short theatre run. The critics were less than luke warm (though more than a few have since revised their view), but among film connoisseurs, Dead Man has attained an almost devotional following. Everything is, naturally. a matter of personal taste, but if you're looking for something that many folks with an alternative bend consider brilliant, you really owe yourself a look at this one.
