I Love Northern Exposure


This is a quality dvd set. It is a little pricy, but it is worth it. You get a lot of extras, etc.
There is a guy by the name of Art selling bootleg discs from ottowa. His are as expensive but the framerate is so low (around 2 mb/sec). He copied them from cable to a dvd recorder squeezing 5 episodes on per disc... WOAH!
These commerically released discs are professioanl quality all the way. Framerate is very high, to be expected of a commercial release. Sound is incredible.
If you are a fan, you will not be dissappointed to have these discs in your dvd collection!

Long But Popular Movie


I finally got to see this film and its great. It is about a man's life while working at a Death Row Prison and Stars Tom Hanks who runs it. It's a prison during the depression era in Louisiana USA. The movie has some very gripping and disturbing scenes which some viewers may find hard to stomach as there are the terrible scenes of executions in the infamous electric chair. Paul Edgecomb(Tom Hanks) comes to know a man in prison with a special gift i.e. John Coffey (played by Michael Duncan). There are some pretty disturbing images in this movie. The way the film is set up, Paul is a elderly man telling his personal accounts of things that happen during his years at the prison.

best season


I liked this season best and feel that it is a great addition to any and all collections.
However all B-5 sets are only $35.00 - $45.00 at CD warehouse. Why shop amazon when their competition is so much cheaper?

Foolproof - movie DVD cover picture
TIDY HEIST FILM


Although FOOLPROOF's leading characters are talented young actors, the film's finest moments come from the delightful performance of that marvelous character actor, David Suchet (Hercule Poirot in the BBC Mystery series). Suchet plays Leo, a cunning, shrewd and acerbic front man, who blackmails our three heroes into doing a heist for him. Why? The three youngsters have been playing a game, devising foolproof heists for pleasure. Suchet, however, steals the plans for one of their heists, and it works beautifully, so he uses this to get the guys to do a 20 million dollar bonds theft.
The movie moves slowly to a rather unpredictable and clever ending, buoyed by Suchet's performance and of course by the charming leads: Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Boltneck) as Kevin, the insurance investigator somewhat nerd, who forms the moral conscience of the group; Kristin Booth, a perky, feisty and suggestively sensuous presence; and Joris Jarsky as Rob, the one member who really seems to want to make the bond exchange work. Why not? Suchet has slid him a hefty sum unknown to his comrades, who fail to notice his new clothes and new car? Hmmm.
FOOLPROOF is a refreshingly entertaining movie, that doesn't rely on gratuitous sex scenes or even any major violence. Well directed by William Phillips, this Canadian made film is quite surprisingly good.

The Ring (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Awesomely Wicked


The first part made me jump. How horrible to see that chick's face disfigure when the girl from the well came out and scared the living daylights out of her. Then when they find out she was in the closet and her face was all zombied out it was too disturbing to look at.
After watching that movie, which I rented in a video store and watched it with my wife. I was having nightmares and sweating because of that little girl from the well.
Her long black hair that covers her face was just too wicked. She reminded me of the girl from the exorcist.
When she came out of the T.V and scared the hell out of that one dude- She zoomed in at him and he jumped off-That part made my heart pump really fast and made my hair turn white.
At first I thought it was a happy ending, but when that little boy said, "She never sleeps!" That made the movie turn its true colors.
It was a depressing story to hear how that little girl died, but she avenges anyone who watches that tape.
I hope the sequel which is coming out in the Fall is pretty wicked as the first one.
I recommend to not watch this movie alone during the night.

OH MY GOSH!!!!!


By far, this is one of the BEST movies I have ever seen!! A MUST SEE!! I plan to get the soundtrack as well. Nicole and Brian had such an awesome chemistry, as if they were destined to be together. Their acting and singing is GREAT!! Will there be a sequel to this movie? It's nice to see a good African American film where sex and drugs are not part of the main plot. We need more films like this!! How did this movie not make the big screen?? Continue the good work Michael and Christine!!

Charming, heartwarming love story in the near future.


Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters star in a simple story: two innocent souls meet and take to the road to see the world, falling in love along the way. The catch? They're both robots. Stan Winstons outstanding make-up and the acting skills of the two stars create a unique vision of the future and how things stay the same, the more they change. This very expensive production was a major loser (financially) but is a very pleasant film to enjoy again and again. Check out the fabulous John Williams score; once you hear it, you'll never forget it. A winner.

A Litttle Off-Center, But Brilliant Nonetheless


No matter how you slice it, "The Rat Pack" is a good movie. Great performances, a very well-written script that captured the subjects beautifully, a swinging soundtrack and stylish visuals all combine to make this a fantastic film..
A better Sinatra could have been found out there, surely. Ray Liotta is a great actor in his own right, but just wasn't the right choice for this part. However, Joe Mantegna as Dean Martin and Don Cheadle as Sammy Davis, Jr. (both were nominated for Emmys) were spot-on. Mantegna was wonderfully elusive as the deadpan, enigmatic, very sober Dino, and Cheadle stole the show as the immensely conflicted Sammy. I very much enjoyed Angus MacFadyen as long-suffering Peter Lawford and, even though he appeared only one or two times, Bobby Slayton as Joey Bishop. Good performances also came from William Petersen as JFK, Megan Dodds as May Britt, and Dan O'Herlihy as the scheming Joe Kennedy. And it doesn't hurt that the makeup (Emmy-nominated also) was great--take a look at the briefly-shown old Sinatra at the beginning!
The movie tries way too hard to cover several years in a couple of hours. It completely skips any backstory (including the Pack's formation), leaves out lots of things and people, and ends far too early, cutting out the many interesting developments in the years to come; also, many key players included are downscaled, like Bishop, Monroe, and mobster Sam Giancana. Also, incredible dramatic license is taken in places, ranging from the not-so-important (like the fact that the Pack always had their hotel rooms on the same floor, and "One For My Baby" was recorded years before the end) to the major (Peter informed Frank that Kennedy wasn't coming over the phone from D.C., and Dino and Sammy weren't there, either). But, somehow, it all still works.
Plot defects aside, there are some moments of sheer brilliance; the gang's music was used in striking ways to enhance what was onscreen. Sammy's first scene, with him singing, dnacing, and playing the drums AND the trumpet, really showed the immense body of talent he possessed (arguably more than any other Pack member) and the one-man showstopper he was. The group's carousing was caught nicely with the Summit re-enactment, and the after-parties in the great segment with "Ain't That A Kick in the Head" playing while the camera enters each member's hotel room. (Dean really would settle in with a comic book and a Western on TV!) The scene with Frank sailing with JFK at Hyannis Port, when Frankie was on top of the world, had "I've Got the World on a String" playing under it (it also played over the credits). Sammy singing "I've Got You Under My Skin" to the Ku Klux Klan; the juxtaposition of the lyrics and the situation--suddenly the words aren't about love anymore, but strong hate! This is a number that will leave you reeling. The final segment, with Frank singing "One For My Baby" as we see what becomes of the Pack and all their cohorts and remember their glory days, before Frank disappears in a cloud of smoke a la his "retirement" concert in '71, is as beautiful as it is stunning. I got chills when I saw the scene with Sammy, dressed in black satin pajamas, watching racist television reports about himself in an entirely white room. And Frank's introduction, singing "Live Till I Die," is beyond words. The lyrics sum up his life so well it's scary: "Those blues I lay low/I'll make them stay low/They'll never trail over my head/I'll be a devil till I'm an angel...Gonna dance gonna fly/I'll take my chance riding high/Before my numbers up I'm gonna fill my cup..."
It may miss here and there, but all in all, "The Rat Pack" is an motion picture experience that should not be missed.
