Thirteen - movie DVD cover picture
Certainly not a 'date' movie by any stretch ......


Thirteen is one of those rare films that slaps you in the face and tells you to pay attention because 'there for the grace of God' could go you or your kids ....
Of course reality does have a tendency to creep in. I mean what do you expect from a dysfunctional family in the throes of trying their darndest to overcome drug or alcohol addiction. Did you expect the kids to be knitting sweaters while mom bakes golden crips apple pies. I think not!
Thirteen takes a young, grade seven, thirteen (of course) year old girl, Tracy, as she decides to leave aside her teddy bears and fall into the trap of conforming to 'hip' peer pressure. The problem for Tracy is that to get that peer approval she yearns for requires her to let one of the newfound friends, Evie, to latch on. Evie, practically moves into Tracy's house while begins to spin her hedonistic web around her new victim 'de jour' ...... Evie of course is no more and no less than one of the world great users and leeches ......
In a matter of months Tracy's life begins to unravell before our eyes as she now drinks, steals, does drugs, looses her virginity, lies, cheats, fails in school ...... and last but no least begins body piercing, tatooing and self mutilation with half hearted attemps to get attention by trying to commit suicide....
Yes quite a busy four months of the first semester in grade seven I might add ...
The good thing about the movie is that is does not preach nor does it really present any solutions to the problems of this girl or the family ....... but, certainly be prepared to suffer while you watch this family unravelling right before your eyes ....

Once Upon a Potty for Him - movie DVD cover picture
This video will get any kid to use the potty


My son was three and still didn't want to use the potty. He tried it from time to time but always wanted his diaper back on. Just when I thought all hope was lost I checked this video out from my local library. He loved this video and it didn't hurt that his name was Joshua too just like the little boy in the video. He watched this video three times a day for two weeks and then voila ... it just happened. I couldn't have done it without this video. It's a must for any parent and child. If only we had gotten it sooner!

One Step Beyond-Volume 1 - movie DVD cover picture
Five of the earliest episodes of TV's creepiest show


Everyone is familiar with The Twilight Zone, but how many know about One Step Beyond? Even I, a huge fan of classic television and the outr? in all its forms, was completely unfamiliar with this show until some time last year. One Step Beyond is sort of like The Twilight Zone - except it's actually much better. I love Rod Serling, but there was always a sense of otherness about him and his famous show. With One Step Beyond and John Newland - the show's guide into the unknown - you had a much different experience. The strange story chronicled each week was reportedly based on actual events, and this lent the show a force and visceral connection with the viewer that could not be found in fictional shows of the same type. One Step Beyond is oftentimes genuinely creepy - as much now as it was when it originally aired. Newland's persona was perfect for the show's desired effect, there was no dependence on strange twists or unexpected endings to save an otherwise bland episode, and the music greatly added to the whole effect. I've read a number of comments by those who remember watching the show as a young person and being spooked if not quite frightened by what they saw; when you have viewers already gripping the arms of their chairs before your host even appears to say a word, you are definitely doing something right. I can't imagine why the show only aired for three seasons, beginning in early 1959 and ending in the summer of 1960. It not only pre-dates The Twilight Zone, it goes it one better.
This DVD features five of the earliest episodes of the show. Night of April 14 (originally aired on January 27, 1959) was the show's second episode and, as you might guess, concerns the events of April 14, 1912 - the night the Titanic slipped down into its watery grave. A bride-to-be has an awful nightmare of drowning in cold water, unable to find the man she is to marry in the chaos around her; the next day, her fianc? (played by Patrick MacNee who would go on to great fame playing John Steed in The Avengers) suddenly announces that the honeymoon in Switzerland has now become a honeymoon to New York on board the Titanic. The bride gives in to her future hubby's wishes, despite more dreams wherein she sees the name of Titanic on the boats around her, and - well, you know what happened. The episode also features the stories of a couple of individuals thousands of miles away who have prescient premonitions of the disaster, as well. The episode closes with a description of the book Futility, written by Morgan Robertson and published in 1898 - it is the story of a huge, luxurious ship called the Titan which hits an iceberg on its maiden voyage and sinks - the similarities to the Titanic and its fate are indeed quite eerie.
Cloris Leachman stars in The Dark Room (which originally aired on February 10, 1959); she is an American photographer who has come to France to capture the essence of the French people in pictures. Her first subject has a wonderful face, but the stranger eventually goes off the deep end and attacks her - his identity, when it is finally revealed, definitely takes the story "one step beyond." Epilogue (which originally aired February 24, 1959) is an especially memorable episode. Let this be a lesson to all: abandoned mines are not a good place for mother-son outings; the manner in which the estranged husband is alerted to his son's entrapment in the mine did, I am sure, inspire shivers down the spines of countless viewers across the country.
The Dream (original airdate: March 3, 1959) takes us to Britain during the early days of World War II. Here we witness a double dream that would seem to indicate that love knows no earthly bounds. This collection closes with The Dead Part of the House (original airdate: March 17, 1959), an episode which is creepy in a good way. Jennifer, Rose, and Mary help bring a father and daughter together following the death of the girl's mother - but are the trio of little girls merely dolls, or are they the ghosts of three little girls who haunt the nursery where they died?
I love One Step Beyond. It may not have the technical quality of The Twilight Zone, but it connects with viewers in a personal way that, rather than asking them to ponder the mysteries of some undefined outer limits, takes the viewer one step beyond the normal and explainable right there from the confines of their own comfortable seats.

Love Comes Softly - movie DVD cover picture
Does justice to Janette Oke


When I was a child, my grandmother gave me a book by Janette Oke named "Love Comes Softly". This began a shared love for her stories. When each new book came out, we would read it and call each other up so we could talk about it. We both agreed that her stories are full of memorable characters that you instantly fall in love with and relate to. When I saw this movie on the shelf at Blockbuster I almost fell over because I was so excited. When I watched it, I became even more elated. The movie is well acted and true to the book it was based on. Even more rare in films these days, it depicts the Christian faith without falling into stereotyping, prejudice or creating one-dimensional characters. My only criticism would be, it was TOO SHORT! And my only disappointment is that my grandmother is no longer on this earth to enjoy it too.

Dead Alive - movie DVD cover picture
Braindead


I saw Braindead (as "Dead Alive") and I LOVED it. I thing that the poor reviews from on this film probably came from people who saw the cut versions. I cannot recommend this enough. The gore didn't bother me at all, but I think thats because I'm a huge horror fan and very hardended to such things. To say that this film has nothing redeeming it other than its shock value is very wrong. In stating that, one overlooks the Freudian psychology and symbolism, and the artistic elements. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest horror movies ever made. I suppose more sensitive viewers may not enjoy the gore, but I am certain that viewers a dark, yet wacky sense of humor and an appreciation for subtley will fully appreciate the movie.

HD Window Hawaii (2 Disc WMVHD Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Fantastic scenery music and quality


I have been watching this on my 61" HDTV and it looks fantastic! The DVD has a lot of beach scenes and some of rivers and a beautiful scene of a rainforest waterfall. The audio on the DVD is in surround sound of the waves crashing and birds chirpping - it's almost like being right on the beach. I put it on when I have parties to create a nice ambiance. It's a great DVD to show off my home theatre system. There is also a menu choice on the DVD that puts the moving video scenery in a picture frame right on my TV - it looks pretty cool!

Super Milk Chan Show - 100% Whole (Vol. 1) - movie DVD cover picture
Well, I liked it


I liked all three versions of the show, the "Americanized" version is funny in it's own way, and if you don't like that then there is a more literal version as well as the original Japanese. so, depending on your style of humor, you will either like it or hate it, there is no in between here. You must have a warped sense of humor.

The Phantom of the Opera (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
For the past 3 years these things do happen.


I really have to say that I think this movie is amazing. While I think the story is painfully dumb (as in the way nobody ever tries to do anything to stop the phantom), the music is spectacular. I'd choose the movie soundtrack over the original Broadway recording in a second. Though Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman are technically better singers, I don't think Crawford sounds like a phantom in misery and Emmy Rossum is just so much more pleasant to listen to than Brightman. So don't trust the pretentious individuals who gave this movie a negative review. After all, they know so much more about music than you do ::rolls eyes::. I could understand how people could be disappointed because they have this preconceived vision of how the phantom should be, but I must say, this production is amazing.
