Janet Jackson - The Velvet Rope Tour - movie DVD cover picture

Being a big fan of Janet, I had to get this DVD. When I saw the performance on HBO, I was hooked on getting it when it came out for sale. Of course the chapters on the DVD are seperated by the songs. Janet performs songs like That's the way love goes, Throb, I Get Lonely, If, Alright, Rhythem Nation, What about that, and many many more. My personal favorite songs she performs on the DVD are Thats the way love goes because its more laid back, Rope Burn because the audience just goes crazy, and If because its one of my favorite Janet songs. The DVD really doesn't have a lot of special features. Nothing extra thats major.

Fresh - movie DVD cover picture

A very powerful film, tightly plotted, well-written and wonderfully acted. Fresh's chess games with his father, and the advice he receives therein, brilliantly foreshadow the moves he will later make in a real-life game of chess against the powerful drug dealers who control his neighborhood. This one kept me guessing all the way to the end and is doubly impressive because it presents a plausible scenario in which a very intelligent twelve-year-old boy might overcome the odds against him. The last shot, a picture of Fresh's face, is an example of a perfect final image because it reveals an aspect of character that I had not seen before (although I always knew it was there).

Absolutely STUNNING! The penultimate in rock concert video.

Obviously nothing compares to actually being at the concert. This video (and it's near sister, Delicate sound of thunder) delivers with intimate camera work displaying the artists, the lasers, the props and the audience in a cohesive mix with soundtrack audio that will leave the viewer fully satisfied. The visual imagery on cuts like High Hopes, the lasers during Comfortably Numb, the fact that the ENTIRE Dark Side of the Moon album is performed with cutting precision are just a few of the reasons this video is a "must have" in any collection. A technical masterpiece.

Waiting for Season 2

This is one of the 1970s action dramas about S.W.A.T team in action. Many of us who enjoyed this show were saddened that this show did not reappear in re-runs and thanks to the producers and the studio for 13 glorious episodes (three CDs). Now we have the opportunity to view, entertain and enjoy this show. This is one of the few shows about a team of cops in action. There were several single cop shows such as Beretta; two-cop shows such as Starsky and Hutch, but S.W.A.T is the only one about a team. The show stars well known actor Steve Forrest and this show also paved way for the success of Robert Urich (Vegas) and Mark Shera (Barnaby Jones). I hope the success of this DVD set will convince Columbia TriStar to produce second set of DVD covering the second season.

Classic TV at its best!!

You know that a program is great when you enjoy it over and over again. In this youth oriented society, the Golden Girls have proven that great TV is not based on youth, young beauty, and sex.
It is based on great casting, great acting, and talented writing.
I've taped almost all the episodes of this comedy on VHS, and now I've purchased the first installment of this hilarious program. I intend to buy all the installments of the Golden Girls. Laughing is cathartic and this DVD set certainly helps relieve alot of tension and stress at the end of the day.
The one drawback of this DVD set is the featurette of Melissa and Joan Rivers. I could have done without them. Thank God for the fast forward button.

Napoleon Dynamite - movie DVD cover picture
Just 'awesome'!

What a wonderfully inventive honest and hilarious movie this was, particularly when compared to the Hollywood sap that graces our screens these days. It was unbelievably deadpan, completely orginal and right from the opening credits made of various foods, i knew it was undoubtedly one of the best movies I have seen this year. Yet totally underrated.

It was wonderfully acted, from Napoleon to his afeminine brother and Spanish friend to his side ponytailed love interest/friend. The entire production was graced with a 1980s air that lends itself to social commentary about the progression (or lack thereof) of rurality, and even the costumes etc are incredibly well thought out and contribute to the entire work.

But the point, is there is no point. Nothing is learnt, developed, and the story is hardly plot driven. Yet the entire piece works magnificantly to go absolutely nowhere, and clearly, there should be a deemphasis on the complete conclusions and perfect Hollywood stars. This film is incredibly unique and should be viewed to understand why it works so wonderfully.

The humour is very remincient of 'Welcome to the Dollhouse' or 'Ghost World', and yet this work is perhaps more approachable and likable.
