Haunting . . .


When I watched this movie, I totally felt for the characters (although I was somewhat offended by the incestuous content). However, it is a wonderful love story with great supporting characters. I've been wanting to read the manga series that it is based on but haven't been able to find it anywhere. Anyway, this was a really great episode and they should come out with many more!

Fantastic. Wish more movies were of this caliber.


First of all, leave it to Leonard Maltin to misjudge another movie. I don't know why it still surprises me sometimes.
This movie has all the style and story which makes me want to watch it again and again. Sparks really fly between Gibson and Pfieffer. The supporting cast is excellent. My favorite of whom is of course Raul Julia. Fantastic.
The story is a little confusing the first time through. But this is irrelevant on further viewings.
I highly recommend this to purchace. You will never grow tired of it.

Good Will Hunting - movie DVD cover picture
Elliott Smith


This is a very intelligent film about Will Hunting (Matt Damon) a young genius, who because of his disadvantaged and abusive childhood, ends up as a janitor at MIT when he could easily be the head of the Mathematics department. Though the story is a bit far fetched (it is hard to believe a kid this bright wouldn't have been noticed by someone who would have guided him towards higher education), once you put that aside, it is a fascinating character study of a very complex and dynamic young man.
Will is discovered after solving a math challenge left on a blackboard by the head of the math department at MIT. This throws his life into turmoil, as the mathematicians want to make him into a prodigy. He also begins seeing a therapist (Robin Williams) who forces him to confront many deep emotions and experiences he had been repressing. The effect this has on him, and his relationship with his friends is powerful and makes for an engrossing tale.
The screenplay was written by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for which they won an Academy Award (the film was nominated for nine). Both were considered promising young actors before this film, but this tied a rocket pack to their backs and lit the fuse. Damon was outstanding in the lead. He had a very complex character to play and his emotional range was phenomenal. Not only was he quick witted, charming and vibrant, but he also had to be hot headed, arrogant, confused and despondent. He was able to switch emotions with ease and was always intense and believable. Robin Williams also gave one of his better performances and received a best supporting Oscar.
It is hard not to like this film. Most of the challenges that Will faced were inside him, and watching him struggle to overcome the limitations from his past was very uplifting. I rated this film a 9/10. We need more scripts like this. Perhaps if we are lucky, Damon and Affleck will take time from their successful acting careers and collaborate again.

If you've followed the series you HAVE to get this one.


Ok, I will try to make this short and sweet. If you already shelled out the cash to get the first 2 DVD collections ( slayers & Slayers Next) you have to get this one to see how to series turns out. Try is a very enjoyable series. Although not as good as NEXT, and not as fresh as the original, it is still crammed full of what makes Slayers such a fantastic series.
Just go buy it, its better than 99% of whats out there.

BRILLIANT, Americans might even learn something...


People who simplify this film as "yet another Von Trier female abuse film" are closing their puny little minds to one of the most original films I've ever seen. This is indeed Our Town gone to Hell, and it's so refreshing to see the dark points of the US brought to the surface. Anyone with the mentality to have viewed at least one stage play in their life will not find this film "boring" as some people have stated, but instead have their senses bashed about the head, which is a good thing when it's a masterful director such as Lars. AND I have a new respect for Nicole Kidman. Amen

It's a great movie. I know all the words to it now.


I first seen this movie in 1991. And I loved it so much that I taped it. Now I know everyones lines in Camp Cucamonga. My nieces seen it and now they love it too. We have watched it so many times that the color is starting to mess up. This is a wonderful movie. If you haven't seen this movie get it and you will like it too. It is my favorite movie. And it has a lot of good actors in it too. We just can't seem to get enough of Camp cucamonga. It's so nice. So buy this movie.

Trigun Vol. 1 - The 60 Billion Dollar Man - movie DVD cover picture
This world is made of... LOVE AND PEACE!


Perfect! That is how you sum up "Trigun" in one word. With it's catching story, lovable heros, and beautiful animation, it deserves a special spot in anyones collection.
Story: 10/10 In this first volume, the story starts at a comical pace. Vash, the main character has managed to get a $$60,000,000,000 bounty on his head for the mass murder of a whole town. He is also a pacifist. Now Vash has to keep alive and help people at the same time. The story is a gun-slinging futuristic one, much like Cowboy Bebop.
Characters: 10/10 The characters are funny and sweet, but can be deep and philisophical at times. The heros are quirky, giving the plot a twist, and the enemies are new and more interesting then most.
Animation: 100/10 BEAUTIFUL! The gun fights are just awsome. It will leave you speech less!
All-in-all, A+++++++ ~SqUiRrElY~
