The Phantom of the Opera (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Had me humming all day!

Five stars for one of the best movies I've seen this year. Beautifully orchestrated, acted and performed, this movie version does the theatrical masterpiece proud.

Gerard Butler is so handsome and yet so intense in his portrayal of the tormented Phantom that if I were Christine (the excellent Emmy Rossum), that Raoul guy (vocally gifted Patrick Wilson) would have had to drag me out of that underground boudoir with wild horses and a bulldozer.

Wilson seemed like a teenager in love compared to the agonized yearning of the Phantom, and in a different musical he would have been hopping around a gazebo in the rain singing "Sixteen Going on Seventeen".

Minnie Driver does a fine comedy turn as Prima Donna Carlotta, and although she doesn't actually sing in the movie, she does a credit worthy number during the credits. Miranda Richardson is perfectly cast as Madame Giry, longtime keeper of the Phantom's secret. Rossum is also a casting coup, and the doe-eyed Jennifer Beal look-a-like fully captures the essence of Christine, the Phantom perpetual flava-of-the-month.

The movie had me spellbound from Act one, Scene one until the closing credits, and I highly recommend it to you.

This is a must see

This is one of the most original and creative spoofs I have ever seen. Who would have thought that Lucas was inspired in such wacky ways? All true Star Wars fans should own their own copy of this film. All true Shakespeare in Love fans should own one too, for that matter. I am looking forward to seeing more from these guys!

A Movie that's Second to None

This movie is great! The Butabi brothers are still bopping their heads to the cheesy but dancable song "What is Love" by Haddaway and trying their best to pick up girls in local dance clubs. This movie is great because it also takes you into the Butabi brothers' homes. You get to see how get ready to go to clubs, which I think is one of the funniest parts in the whole movie. Another great part of this movie is watching the brothers try to get into the newest and hottest club, the Roxbury, and try to open up their very own club. From beginning to end, this movie is definently worth a watch.

"Hard Knocks" tells you all about Benoit like how he got into wrestling, how Dynamite Kid was his big infulence, how he started his training in Stu Harts Dungeon. This also gives use matches from Chris Benoit in Japen, ECW, WCW and WWE. It also shows the match on Chris Benoit got his name The Cripppler where he broke Sabu's neck.The extras on the DVD are cool because it has Benoit matches against Eddie Guerreo, Booker T, Sid Vicous, Bret Hart and many more. This also features Benoits big match at Wrestlemania 20 against Triple H and Shawn Michaels in a triple threat for the World Heavyweight Championship. Benoit wins the big one at Wrestlemania 20 and it took him 18 years to get there. So if your a Chirs Benoit fan or just a Wrestling Fan this is the DVD to pick up and add to your collection!

It really got my attention!!!

Well....I was in the hotel room in Nice, France during this summer when I was watching the movie. I didn't really know who is gonna be in this movie, but it really got my attention. I love the story, it's not for the sake of the casts since i didn't know who is in it before I actually see Christina Ricci showed up in the middle of the movie. It is true that the actors didn't have alot of lines in the movie, but I considered this as very artistic, all the casts are very professional by showing their body language. Some people might think it is a waste of time to watch it without hearing much, but I found the visual excellent, the movie is very beautiful. It's not a waste of time or money if you really like this type of movie!

A New Fan

I have been a David Allan Coe fan for many years. My wife, however, could be best described as very much a non-fan! I convinced her to sit down and watch and listen to this DVD and by the time it was over, she was converted. If you like outlaw country, the blues or just plain old rock and roll, this is a very good DVD.

This show is a MUST for everyone!

If you haven't watch Alias, I can honestly say that you are missing out. Although it may be hard to catch on, after watching a few episodes in a row (like how I did in the middle of season 1) You'll catch on. The show is breathe taking and amazing. There is no other show that is as compelling as this one. The acting, writing, directing, editing, special effects, make up, costume, settings, etc...... is the best for any tv show. It truly is amazing! A must for everyone! Hopefully it'll be out for many more seasons to come.

Look out for packaging flaw.

It is a fabulous set. But I recommend checking the contents of the box right away, because I just opened mine for a peek before wrapping it as a gift and discovered that it held two copies of Volume One and no Volume Two!

Megadeth - Rude Awakening - movie DVD cover picture
A nice testament for an awesome band

Certainly it wasn't the best oportunity to release a DVD, tough the band is good, i thinh that the best incarnation of it includes Marty Friedman and Nick Menza. And the best material available is the one until the Countdown... album, and certain Crypting...pieces.But regardless of that, and of the fact that the bonus tracks doesn't exist. And that this "bonus" underground section damages the dvd more than improve it (black and white and blurry takes it's not what you expect from a good DVD). The material is excellent.De Grasso and Pitrelli are very good musicians, and look very tight in the band. But i find that most of the time it seems that Dave is a little unpassionate about the show, and certainly he lost a lot of his vocal qualities (Train of Consequences is a mess).Instead the audio mix is awesome, one of the best in the market, and the direction is pretty dinamic and accurate too. The set will entertain you in it's entirety, and for me it's kind of refreshing to revisit those five "bonus songs" after watching the main set.The other bonus sections, like the one from Paul Gargano it's just and ode to the band that adds nothing new. But on the other side the Megadeth on Megadeth documental is one of the more straight to the point one's. You can surely watch or read better interviews, but this one surely will keep your attention.Definitely it's a must have for good fashioned music fans, with pretty correct versions of such classics as Wake Up Dead, Hangar 18 and Trust as highlights, in my opinion.Since the DVD and The album brings the same music, buy The DVD and experience the whole concept of a band that helped to trademark the metal forever, and in a terrific quality format.
