Great for Father's Day


I took my 77 year-old father to see this movie in March. We absolutely loved it. So often the elderly are portrayed as helpless and weak in today's movies. Not so in this movie. Straight Story was a tale of a wonderfully simple man doing the right thing and helping others along the way. I promise, it will touch you. I hope the price of this video drops soon because I think it would be a great gift for my dad on Father's Day. May be a little slow for children, wonderful scenery.

The Hunted (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Fight scenes are so real that I could almost feel the blows.


The film starts off in 1999 with a battle scene in Kosovo. Benicio Del Toro, in camouflage, is a good guy who risks his life to murder bad guys. The next scene shifts to the year 2003, in a wooded area in Oregon, where Tommy Lee Jones rescues an animal who has been caught in a trap. He's a retired CIA trainer who lives like a hermit and works occasionally for the police as a tracker in solving crimes. It seems like several deer hunters have been viciously murdered, and the FBI is stumped. Film casting being what it is these days, the FBI leader is a woman, Connie Nielson, who is just too good looking for the role. But hey -- this is Hollywood.
As the film moves along, we learn that it's all because of shell shock as well as a high regard for animal life, that has pushed Benicio Del Toro over the edge and makes him the killer. The plot thickens because Tommy Lee Jones is the one who trained him to kill. And so the rest of the film is a cat and mouse game between these two men.
The director, William Friedkin, did an excellent job in creating the tension and making the fight scenes seem so real that I could almost feel the blows. He also gave the two main characters complex personalities. The action was fast and the plot held my interest throughout. And the theme of hunting and savagery towards animals was also explored. Also, the excellent acting as well as a well crafted screenplay made the film rise above its genre. Recommended.

Attention to Details


I'm am amazed at the detailing of these series, like the Andorians Antenna's that move & convaye their emotional states.
Sorry UPN didn't keep the show on, I think they should take the show to like one of the Pay channel -like ShowTime-
the New Remakes of The Outer Limits started on ShowTime first, then later to Independent TV.. The DVD's Are Great!!!

It has been a tradition in my house for well over 30 years. Every year at Christmas we watch this great classic and every year we all have that big lump in our throat at the end of the movie. The tape I have is very worn. I hope they release the movie again soon............

Classic 80's comedy finally on DVD!!!


When this movie came out it was expected to be a complete BOMB, but proved to be a resilient little movie! My brother and I are still quoting lines from it nearly 20 years later.

If you enjoy those cheesy 80's comedies in the same vein as Rodney Dangerfield's "Back To School," then you will really enjoy this.

Plympton at his best


Now, I'll be the first to admit that Bill Plympton's style of animation is crude at best, but what he does is use a unique blend of style with images to create the most surreal animation ever! This series of shorts is probably the best of his work from all the collections I have seen. I can easily understand not being able to sit through his animation for more than an hour straight, but each short on it's own has a great charm and an unique vision. Your Face, When Push Comes to Shove, and One Of Those Days will make you laugh, then cringe at what you're laughing at, then laugh again!

A perfect movie to watch on a stormy saturday morning.


If you miss the old type of comedy, which made you laugh your tuckus off without bad words and put-downs, you have to see this movie. Tim Conway is a genius of the old school, where you could be funny and remain a gentleman.

Why I Never Accept Invitations From Professors


Burial Ground: The Nights of Terror, is a movie rich with both the humorous and the strangely spooky, mixing the campy feeling of a down-home flesh feast and the thinking man's weapon-using afterlife with the rungs of dismay and dispair into one fun-filled flick of the proverbial wrist. It has its moments, too, amidst its plethora of good and bad actors, chilling effects that mix with the gory and the downright cheesy, and the most confusingly aged supposed child the screen has ever had the privilege of knowing. It begins as many other movies begin, with a bumbling theologian (this time a professor) thirsting for knowledge and finding more than he's bargained for. After locating a crypt and fumbling around with its cursed inscription, he unleashes a horde of adorable, worm-ridden zombies with very foul, very hungry dispositions, ones that don't seem to care that he's shouting "stop, stop, I'm a friend." Enter a group of mindless socialites-seven plus servants that further boost their numbers -- that "assume," quite incorrectly I might add, that their invitation by that same professor to a wonderful country villa is a passport to pleasure. After indulging in some rather out-of-the-way love making, these people find the grounds littered with the walking, and overly intelligent, dead, ones that don't seem bothered in the least by a few of their numbers being brained. This begins a night of locked doors, bullet depletion, and incestuous (yes, incestuous) desires, one that leads to a wonderful ending that quickly dispels the myth that slow-moving equates to harmless.
