I Remember


This film was something. Beats the pants off Harry potter etc... or am I just showing my age?. I will buy this for my children. It still holds all it's charms so many years on.
I adored it and watched it many times over. It is great to see that so many others appreciated it as much as me.

I was talking today with an Australian girl at work about this movie, she leaped about and started dancing and singing the tunes from it.
Do i need to say anymore?

The Mummy Returns (Widescreen Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The Mummy Return's...BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!


The first one was okay, but the second installment is ext. good!!!! But here's a few 'minor edit's I thought would be better
no. 1 The Scropion King, How did he get discovered. I think they just inserted him in, and he didn't show that much...
no. 2 Anaxsunamoon, how did she get revived. I think, after the scropion kings intro I think they should have shown Anaxsunamoon getting revived, then started. Also, how did the French Curator know about all the mummy and stuff?
no. 3 It's strang, how did Evylin (Eve), Rick O' Connol, and Alex O'connol get the piramad. How were they involved in the past. And how did they get re-born in the future?
no. 4 I think the mummy was good and all but, alot of stuff was just "Bounced in", If you know what I mean...
The Mummy returns was great, I highly recommened it for a summer sequel! It had awesome affects and great action but I think they exadurated on the ratings, PG-13? Just For "Action Adventure, and Action Violince?" This is what I saw:
PG-13 Parents strongly cationed some material may not be sutible for children under 13 For"action adventure and action violince"
See what I mean... I still think it was awesome, but I'd be here all night for naming all the cool adventure!
Also the actors/actresses were GREAT!!!!
Rachel Weisz: Very good 1000/5 star acting Although she's pretty, She act like, so good!!!! She was into it and with the story
Brendan Fraser: An awesome action fighter. It's hard to belive he only stared in 2 movie's. I think he's very experianced and cool. He's with it and into the legand
Arnald Voolso: Awesome acting for the Mummy. He really acted like he liked The Mummy. He was also into it and had a good egyption accent and was Evil. But, I think it was sad when Anaxsunamoon abandonded him...
Patricia: Patricia was a good Anaxsunamoon. She really acted like an Anaxsunamoon, I think she was the best one to pick for this paart and she did speak Acient Egyption very, very good!
Jonathon: Like himself, he did a great part in the movie. I don't know his real name but he crackes me up! He's halarios! and Cool!!!!
? (I don't know his name) The desert egyption ninja was one of the favorties, he was an awesome actor and soooo awesome adventures. What I meant was, He 's the awesome dude who stop's the anubis warriors w/ his squad of ninja's kickin' butt!!!
This was pretty realistic and adventurus movie. A must see!!!

History, honor, and courage on film.


This film captures the fear and uncertainty of the civil war at that time. The men of the 54th showed great courage in sacrificing themselves for a nation that at that time didn't know what to do with them, or for them. Our nation must never forget the sacrifices made to keep our nation whole.

SPELLBINDING


I'll never forget when I first saw this movie. I had rented it, but it wasn't until I was babysitting my younger brother, when I decided to put it in the VCR. My mother came home and started to watch it with me. We both got so involved in it that we almost missed my championship swimming meet. I can't believe that it's currently not out. This is one of my favorite movies and if you love old movies, you MUST see this! It had better be re-released very soon.

It's About Time!!


The following is an excerpt from my personal Video catalogue. I originally saw the movie in Toronto, Canada soon after it was first released and I never could understand why it wasn't received with much more acclaim (I am 74 years of age).But to quote from my catalogue: "A man who has become terribly despondent because of a financial difficulty inadvertently thrust upon him by his uncle, contemplates suicide but is "saved" by his guardian angel who grant's him his wish of not ever having been born. It took the viewing public more than THIRTY years to appreciate this Frank Capra masterpiece.The name, James Stewart and the character he portrayed, George Bailey became synonymous.The supporting cast, with names like Donna Reed, Thomas Mitchell, Beulah Bondi, H.B.warner, Ward Bond, Frank Faylen,Samuel S. Hinds and the "angel' Henry Travers was superb.A remake was made about 1978 with a female counterpart of George Bailey. Whatever became of it?

I'm All Right Jack - movie DVD cover picture
A hilarious and brilliant satire from the Fifties


A rather posh young man(Ian Carmichael) graduates from Oxford University intending to become a Captain of Industry. Owing to his honesty and naievety he does not interview well and ends up as fork lift driver at his uncle's (Denis Price) defense plant. He finds a poweful union boss(Peter Sellers) and a somewhat unscrupulous personnel director(Terry-Thomas) along with some executives (uncle plus Dickie Attenborough) working a shady arms deal with a third world country. Carmichael has a 1950s chaste encounter with the delightful Liz Fraser (Sellers daughter) and inadvertently precipitates a strike and is used by all as a scapegoat to restore labor peace. The movie is a satire and full of fun. Enjoy its hilarity. Dont take it seriously.

A real look at the world of a clerk


I really liked this movie. It is such a real look into the world of retail. As a Conveniance store clerk myself, I understand how bad that job can be (especially when you have to work on your day off). This movie is funny especially when you have had days like that. I think for such a small budget (his budget was only 28,000 for EVERYTHING) Kevin Smit did an incredible job. there is no reason that this film should not be liked by everyone who sees it.

O Brother, Where Art Thou? - movie DVD cover picture
An Absolute Masterpiece


"O Brother Where Art Thou" is that rare beast, a film which can be enjoyed on a great many levels and constantly yields new treasures each time it is watched.
The plot revolves around the escapades of three depression-era prison escapees (led by George Clooney in a command performance as the born-to-lead Ulysses Everett MacGill) as they attempt to track down the proceeds of a robbery. As with so many quality comedies, however, that is merely the idea which starts the ball rolling. The plot also involves political machinations, love, religion, the Klan and musical interludes - in short, it has everything.
Much of the humour is - on the surface - derived from the southern accents of the characters and their ways of dealing with the hardships of the era (with the stew being a good example of this). A secondary source of humour comes from Clooney's attempts at sounding well-educated and his constant observations on what's going on - there's also the requisite catchphrase (in this case "we're in a tight spot") which never fails to get a laugh.
"O Brother" also takes some of its cues from slapstick and farce. The climactic scenes as our heroes invade first a Klan rally and then a political banquet clearly give more than a nod to Leslie Nielsen's "Naked Gun" series and indeed any other madcap comedy every made. Even this larger-than-life comedy is essentially character driven, which in my opinion makes it slightly a cut above the average.
There is also a third level to this film. Throughout the action, various references are made to Homer's Greek epic "The Odyssey" - ranging from Cyclopses to Sirens. Certainly the viewing experience is enhanced by reviewing the events of Homer's poem before watching, but this is not essential by anyone's way of thinking.
As has been said by a great many reviewers before and no doubt will be again, "O Brother" enjoys a strong relationship with its soundtrack. All of the songs and instrumental pieces performed in the film make their way onto the soundtrack in the form in which they appear - with the added fact that "Po Lazarus" (the song of the prisoners at the very beginning of the film) is present as a field recording from the 1950s.
The music in the film is vital to the plot, as Clooney and his two friends come across a bluesman (Chris Thomas King) who has sold his soul to the devil, a reference to Robert Johnson. As this young man - Tommy Johnson - puts it "well...I wasn't usin' it". The foursome then record a version of "Man of Constant Sorrow" which becomes a considerable hit. Their appearance - uninvited - at the political banquet on the eve of the gubernatorial election results in the performance both of "In The Jailhouse Now" and a fuller-bodied version of "Constant Sorrow". Of course, listening to either of these songs on the soundtrack in light of the events surrounding them - especially Clooney's reaction to the striking up of "Constant Sorrow" - on the film becomes a much funnier experience.
While not to take anything away from the film itself, there are one or two slight problems in watching it. The first is that some of the scenes don't appear to be adquately miked in the earlier sections of the film - especially the scene where the three escapees are eating dinner at the run-down farmhouse. This has the effect of obscuring some of the very clever dialogue of those sections. The second minor problem is that it does not adequately resolve all the issues raised - such as the identity of the police chief and the exact state of Clooney's marriage. This may, of course, be a deliberately vague thing on the Coen brothers' part, either to set the film up for a sequel (which is unlikely, considering both that there was no sequel to "The Odyssey" and that any sequel would almost invariably be not as good as this original) or simply to provoke questions in the minds of the viewers, which it certainly does.
Most assuredly, though, this is one of the great films of the 90s and is well worth a viewing by anyone interested in good comedy, entertainment for the intellect or good filmmaking. Congratulations to the Coen brothers on another great success.
