Hilarious childhood movies reveal a genius in the making


I've never laughed and/or smiled so much in my life. My face literally hurt after watching this movie. The films Darren Stein (the director) made with his childhood friends were way more ambitious than anything my friends or I made as a child. We pretty much stuck to straight horror, whilst Darren and Company tackled such heady themes as the holocaust, child abuse, and nuclear war. My favorite part: a little girl screaming "no, mommy, no!" in a monotone while her mother "beats" her (the little girl's barely suppressed laughter audible throughout). Other parts worthy of mention include the concentration camp "execution" scene (shot in a suburban living room) and the "bank robbery" scene (also shot in what appears to be the same living room). What makes the film really special, however, is watching a young Darren exhibit signs of being a truly manipulative, megalomaniacal film director. It's sweet, and also a little bit scary. This film is a must for all artists, writers, filmmakers, and musicians who knew what they wanted to be at an early age.

We Want Eazy


I buy anything that has to do with this founding rapper of the West Coast sound. The DVD/CD is great for anyone that owns any Eazy-E album. My only complaint is the documentary was a little short. But the never before seen footage, clips of music videos, and more was well worth it. My favorite song "Hittin Switchz" sounds like it was just recorded yesterday. If only a radio version was available Eazy-E would be back on the charts.You can for one afternoon have an Eazy-E day. It left me wanting more, and I hope Ruthless Records has a couple more hidden gems. Defintely worth the money.

Wonderful!


This is a wonderful show and well-produced. Bernadette Peters is terrific as the witch and the other actors are well cast as well. It is totally enjoyable and well worth the price. I watched it with my ten year old daughter, who enjoyed it as well. A great DVD to add to your collection of musicals or fairy tales or family films. Try it out!

The Children of Heaven - movie DVD cover picture
This is what movies are all about


Having caught 'A time for drunken horses' a year or so ago on cable, a whole new world of cinema opened up to me. I read up on the film & got links to other Iranian movies & from there links to the great neo realist producers like De Sica & Sajit Ray. The pleasure I now get from these films is huge & I wish I could share the brillinace in these films with all. Sadly I know no-one who will even give a moment to exploring these great films. I'd read of Children of Heaven on Amazon & elsewhere & when I finally got it from the States I was thrilled. It is brilliant & as someone mentioned earlier in these reviews, I think this is the best depiction of love I have ever seen in film. For brother & sister, for mum & dad, for the kids & the great kindness & respect for neighbours despite poverty. It made me both happy & sad to see people who are still thrilled by the gift of a pencil or a pen. What a humbling experience to see & I truly believe I am affected for the better by seeing this & I wish everyone in the World would watch it too.I have watched clips of this every day since I had it last week. For anyone still interested in my mutterings & if you like this & are not aware, check out The Apu Trilogy (esp. Pather Panchali), Salaam Bombay, The White Balloon, Lilya 4-Ever, Time for drunken Horses, Ken Loaches stuff, Spirit of the Beehive, Butterfly's Tongue, In this World all wonderful stuff that will make you respect other cultures, humanity & be moved.

Hand Maid May - Limited Edition Boxed Set - movie DVD cover picture
This is a good Movie


Hand Maid May will offer you nothing you haven't seen before as an anime fan. Still, I give it credit for being consistently entertaining, fun, and featuring really funny characters. It's great to see a "harem" anime where the women are actually friendly and not out to kill each other. I love the energy of the quasi-villian, too.

However, as cute and funny as Hand Maid May is, the show also has its fair share of touching moments, especially in the middle and the end. If it weren't for the irritating OVA, this anime would be really great, if not original. As it is, it's just good, but that still makes this show well worth your time.

P.S. And no, it's not sexist.

To all those who have no idea what a good movie is


To those of you who have "issues" with "The Ring"Go back to school and learn how to spell.It is obvious in your reviews why you did not like this movie....you are ignorant. That is what I get from your reviews. Ignorance. It practically bleeds out of my screen every time I read a negative review about this movie. I have yet to read one that is coherant. The irony in that is, that is the issue these morons have with the movie. Just stop watching intelligent movies and give those of us a break who can follow and enjoy a movie such as this. You only embarrass yourself.
