Akira (Limited Special Edition Tin) - movie DVD cover picture
High Quality Excellent Entertainment


Let me just start by saying that I wish they treated all of the important Anime films this way (Princess Mononoke, Wings of Homenaise...). The package for this thing is amazing (limited tin edition that is). When I received this in the mail it blew me away! I don't think anyone has ever shipped a more complete package for an Anime film before this. You get the 2 hour+ movie and another 1.5 hrs worth of extras on a seperate disc, not including the more than 4500 sketches and artwork you can scroll through. You can really tell how much better the remastered version is over the original when you watch the extras where they show the non-remastered film. There is much missing from the backgrounds, simply because the film quality is poor (extras disc). The other thing I found amazing is that on the movie itself there is absolutely no pixelation or rainbows present, which any animation fan can tell you is a problem with a lot of Animation DVDs.
Pionneer went all the way and re-translated the subtitling and re-dubbed the film, making the English version about 50 times better than the previous dub. The names of the characters now sound more like their Japanese names. They also went back and remastered the original Japanese track, although they did NOT put that in 5.1; a small complaint as everything thing else in this package is of the absolute highest quality.
Buy this.

Springtime For Laughter


This was one, (if not the first) of the earliest Mel Brooks films, and the place where Gene Wilder's character was born......indeed, it was the Bloom character that Wilder was to become the rest of his career.....but this was it's best performance.
By now everyone pretty much knows the story of the broadway producers who raise money for a show that will flop so they can keep the money......the great experience is how they do it....
This is one of those films that contains laugh out loud performances, and can be a very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours....
And, of course, there is Zero......

The Best Film of 2003 Deserves To Be Seen More Than Once


Having seen "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" twice, I am convinced that this is undoubtedly not only the best film of 2003, but also one of the finest films ever made within the past thirty years. It is truly an instant contemporary classic which film scholars will rank alongside such classics as David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia" and Cecil B. DeMille's "Ben Hur". I hope that it won't be ignored by the American Motion Picture Academy Awards when the Oscars are awarded early next year.
To his credit, Peter Jackson's last film is the one in the trilogy which adheres most closely to Tolkien's classic text. However, there are several scenes in this film which were added solely for dramatic effect, most notably Pippin's handling of the Palantir at Edoras, and the forging of Anduil - "the sword that was broken but now remade" - by Elrond (Both scenes actually occur much earlier in the trilogy; the former soon after the Battle of Helm's Deep in a military camp; the latter soon after the formation of the Fellowship of the Ring at the Council of Elrond.). But these are relatively minor criticisms of Jackson's latest masterpiece, which once more adheres more closely to Tolkien's spirit and intentions for the trilogy.
The ensemble acting remains terrific, though several members of the cast deserve highest praise. Sean Astin's performance of Samwise Gamgee will be long remembered as among the most riveting, emotionally powerful performances in a film of this kind, adding considerable depth to a courageous figure already evident in the second Lord of the Rings film. Elijah Wood's Frodo is yet another riveting performance, showing both the good and bad aspects of this hobbit's nature. Bernard Hill's King Theoden is a noble man at peace with himself, recognizing his imminent doom outside of the gates of Minas Tirith. Miranda Otto's Eowyn is the finest performance from the female members of the cast, emphasizing both the tranquil and martial aspects of the Rohan princess' nature. And Andy Serkis's Gollum/Smeagol is perhaps the most fascinating portrayal of a twisted, emotionally unstable figure I have seen on film.
Howard Shore's latest, brilliant score is a splendid musical companion to the events unfolding on screen, replete with exceptional solo performances from flutist James Galway and opera singer Renee Fleming. It is a magnificient score of Wagnerian and Mahlerian proportions deserving of frequent performances in concert halls worldwide.
Those who have not seen "Lord of the Ring: Return of the King" should head to the nearest cinema immediately. It is truly not only one of the finest films of the year, but will be remembered as one of the finest films of all time.

The real meaning to the film


I know that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention just reported that Americans are living longer than ever and that the average life expectancy in the United States rose to a record 77.6 years in 2003, up from 77.3 years in 2002.

We all know that McDonalds has been around since 1955.

Other things we know that this film hints at:

1. Sometimes it takes years to understand what certain types of chemicals (hormone enhanced foods) will do to us, and then a few more years past that before the government will let the public know (cigarettes, certain prescription drugs).

2. In the past we didn't have Ronald McDonald cartoons or kids being targeted by fast food chains from birth.

3. A lot of the people that are retiring right now didn't have a McDonalds on every corner when they were 5.

We need to look at this film for what it is, a reminder that our children are not adults that can make sound decisions for themselves. The Supreme Court just acknowledged that minors would not be executed like adults so in fairness to that law I say stop killing our children ourselves.

The Best Martial Arts Movie Ever Made


After all of these years, Enter The Dragon is the best martial arts movie ever made. This movie changes the feeling of martial arts and the genre. Bruce Lee is still the greatest martial artist compared to the semi-martial artist of today. No of these kind of stars come near the level of Lee. The supporting cast was ok, but nothing special except for Mr.Han played by Shih Kien is still probably one of my favorite villians after almost twenty-six years.

WE WON AT LAST


Well I'm a Brit and have wanted to see us win Wimbledon since I was a tiny girl. I loved this movie, I really felt as if we'd won at last. It was such a cute movie, with a really feel good factor. If you're a Brit & you like tennis (what Brit doesn't like Wimbledon?) watch it. Best film of 2005 for me so far. My MUM is Wimbledon's biggest fan, but unfortunately she can't get it over there yet.

Waiting in a airport


I found this to be a very good movie and Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta Jones, and Stanley Tucci are very good in this.

Viktor Navorski is going to New York city from Krakoshia. During the flight however there is a civil war in his country and when he gets to JFK Frank Dixon(Stanley Tucci) who is in charge of security at the wont let him into the United States. Viktor lives in the airport and makes friends with some of the people that works at the airport. During the time that he lives in the airport he even meets a women played by Catherine Zeta-Jones whom he likes. Does Viktor get to leave the airport or go home? Watch the Terminal to find out.

Wonder Woman - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Love it for what it is


First I'd like to say I wish people who haven't a clue what they're talking about would refrain from posting negative reviews. superbat's comments that the episodes are out of order is complete nonsense. Only the first season was set in the 1940s, which I find more convincing as evidence than an analysis of her hairstyles. Someone else said network cancelled the series after only one season, but apparently (and thankfully) no one told the network since there is more than one season. ;-)

But enough of that. As for the show itself, the writing was bad. The stories were silly. The effects were cheesy. The editing was bad (lots of continuity problems). Every situation involving the military was completely unrealistic. And there was never any explanation for how Steve Trevor--the guy who was shot, captured or knocked unconscious every time he got within 20 feet of a bad guy--ever lasted until Wonder Woman showed up. LOL

And you know what? I don't care. Like so many people who have commented on the acting, writing, and so on, I love this show, and when you truly love someone or something, its faults become endearing traits. And so it is with Wonder Woman. It's like watching one of your children perform and loving him even when he doesn't do a perfect job.

But for all its flaws, Wonder Woman has hours and hours of one perfect thing, and that's Lynda Carter. As beautiful as any woman could be, and just as beautiful as Diana Prince as she is as Wonder Woman (even more so in my opinion), with her amazing smile and Lynda's gracious, kind, and gentle nature always shining through, she's even as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. We see her treat everyone--from the worst villains to the biggest nerds to heads of state, even animals and aliens--with the upmost dignity and respect. I find that to be the most believable aspect of the show, and I think it's because she's not acting; that's Lynda Carter. We see a sense of humor, intelligence, humility, and strength all rolled into to one amazing woman. What a fantastic and timeless role model for men and woman alike. I love this show!
