Fahrenheit 9/11 - movie DVD cover picture
I question the motives of the US government...


Hey, for all you skeptics, even if michael moore did manipulate some evidence, aren't the facts presented on this film and in other findings enough to raise a light bulb in your head, that hmmm... Maybe he did attack Iraq and killed over 100,000 of them, just for oil and corporate contracts, and hmm... Maybe he wants to attack Iran to do the same.. Don't be stupid Americans, not one terrorist on 9/11 was from Iraq, they were mostly saudis. DON'T BE STUPID!!

UPDATE: he pledge went up to 900 million now.

I question the motives of the US government when they pledge millions in "reconstruction" aid for the tsunami victims (gee, I wonder who's gonna profit from this? Well but of course! American corporations, they'll profit for years to come!), all the while doing a huge publicity stunt including 3 US presidents, encouraging Americans to give to the people's immediate needs. Convenient for the administration, we pay for their food and water while they (with our tax dollars) pay US corporations that send our jobs abroad. This is why their monetaty pledge went from 20 million, to approximately 400 million. Americans are a very generous people as is, but it looks like the US government is more generous to corporations than anyone.

Don't get me wrong, I am happy the US gave so generoulsy because the countries affected definitely need it, but like operation iraqi freedom I once again question their motives.
Does the administration really want to help the people or regulate all utilities in these countries? We'll find out in a few years.

Go Ahead...Go Shred!


I have loved this movie since the first time I saw it on cable back in the late 80s! I taped it, wore that one out, bought it again, watched it a few hundred more times and now, just purchased the DVD. In short IT ROCKS! Features include an alternate ending, a few deleted scenes and, my personal fav, interviews with the cast and crew. It's interesting seeing what they look like now (Chandler and Kiani look exactly the same) and how the movie changed the courses of some of the stars' lives.
If you love surfing or the ocean, GET THIS MOVIE! You won't regret it!

An Excellent Movie


I saw this movie when it was released in the theatres...and I must admit, the movie is excellent! The storytelling is truly well done, especially since this is the true story of a young man with Autism (Yes, Radio is autistic, not mentally disturbed or some-such). The showing of what folks with autism are like is a lot more realistic than in some of the latest movies like it. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Productgroup: DVD
Amelie - movie DVD cover picture
As sweat as chocolate


This film is just right, like the warm cup of tea on a cold night, or the first sunny day after weeks of rain. I own the DVD and have seen it several times, and each time it fills me with a kind of wonder. This is the kind of timeless and pure story that made Hollywood great, but that Hollywood doesn't make any more.
Aside from a handful of cynics, I can't imagine anyone who won't enjoy Amelie. But here's a test: if you, like the films main character, can take joy from life's simple pleasures (like the way your hand feels sinking into a sack of dried beans, the way street markets sound and smell, the absurdity of a horse running with the Tour de France), then this is a simple pleasure you don't want to miss.
As far as the quality and value of this film, I can't add much to the hundreds of reviews already posted here except to say "Yes! Yes! Me too!"
An interesting side note: the more I watch the film, the more little cultural references and word plays I catch. I'm sure the film is full of them, and it would take a native French speaker or long-time Paris resident to catch them all (understanding them is not necessary to enjoy the film; they're a bonus).
One I caught on the most recent viewing on TV (my French is sketchy, but seeing it with Italian subtitles rather than the English helped) is a play on words by Hippolito, the failed writer in the cafe, who comments that the cafe's regulars speak about the weather out of fear of the passing time. In French, "temps" means both "time" and "weather."
Similarly, the grocer Collignon tells Amelie to contact his mother to discover the name of her apartment's former tennent. He says, "Elle a une memoire d'elephant, un elephant de mer." That translates to "She has a memory like an elephant, a sea elephant" -- a reference to a manatee or an ocean seal. But the point is the way Collignon stresses "mer" (which means "ocean"), which sounds the same as "mere" (which means "mother").
I also noticed that the voice over used when Amelie imagines the television retrospective of her life is from the same person who does the television commentary for the funerals of France's rich, famous and powerful. I peaked at the credits and found that he is Frederic Mitterrand, the nephew of the late prime minister.
The last might be a stretch, but on my last trip to Paris I noticed a old-time chocolate brand called "Poulain", which is Amelie's family name. Maybe that's just a coincidence, but with a film as sweet as this one, assuming they come from the same source is an easy mistake to make.

The Shining - movie DVD cover picture
Murder, ghost's, an ax, and a psycho dad!


Jack has it all in his movies he can play a number of good roles, but in this movie he plays a role no one has played before! He plays a dad who takes his wife and son up in the mountains to be a caretaker to a hotel. But this is no ordinary hotel, in the winter the place gets hunted by ghost of the past. The father starts to see these ghost and goes insane! He smash's the two-way radio and blames it on his son. His wife doesn't like the place, she thinks it's making her husband act strange but he denies it. And the son has something that only a few people have, it's called the shining. He can see into the future and hears a voice in his head that tells stuff that's going to happen, for example it tells him that hotel is a bad bad place, it tells him a long time ago a man and his wife and twin girls were the caretakers of the hotel, the dad went insane and murdered his wife and girls then killed himself. Now the boy keeps on seeing the ghost of the two girls and sees the words "R E D R U M" in blood all over the place. I have given you a lot of information now the question is do you dare watch this movie?

Bruce Lee can now comfortably rest in piece.


Jet Li has succeeded in picking up the legacy Bruce Lee left behind. WOW... I saw this movie, expecting another "Black Mask" type movie and was floored. The story, the music, the acting, most of all, the fight scenes...superb. Bruce Lee would be proud.
P.S. For those this may concern...I was intrigued by the slow, fluted music played throughout the movie and would love to know if it is obtainable. Please let me know.

King of the Hill - The Complete Third Season - movie DVD cover picture
FINALLY HERE


ONE OF THE BEST SEASONS THIS IS. BUT NO EXTRAS. WHA. HOW. WHY. Well as lots of people know this season was supposed to come out early 2004. Well since it got pushed back to December 28th 2004 if they would have put extras on it would have come out till middle of 2005. Maybe it would have been worth the wait but I don't get this:
SEASON 1 - 13 EPISODES - 50 DELETED SCENES
SEASON 2 - 22 EPISODES - 197 DELETED SCENES
SEASON 3 - 25 EPISODES - 0 DELETED SCENES
CMON WHATS WITH THAT.

OVERALL this a great season of episodes and is really worth $30. It is really funny to watch over and over again and will be a good addition to your sets.
