Blue Man Group - The Complex Rock Tour Live - movie DVD cover picture
It's Comples, It's Rock and It's Live!


So don't expect perfection. And don't expect a BMG show from one of their regular venues. I've been to Chicago and will go to Berlin soon. They tell you right up front on the box that this is not one of those shows. Don't expect one and you won't be disappointed.
It's an excellent show with excellent song selection. This is definitely something you can put on more than once. You can sit in front of the screen and watch it or you can let it play while you're doing something else. It won't get old fast.
I happened to be watching it in early September and was caught completely off guard by Exhibit 13. This is truly an amazing song and an amazing and very moving video.
I enjoyed seeing the rest of the musicians on stage and also enjoyed the guest vocalists. I really enjoyed watching this concert, I've recommended it to my friends and I'll watch it again.

The Talented Mr. Ripley - movie DVD cover picture
Oscar-Caliber Desolation Of the Soul


Hundreds of reviewers have commented on the beauty of the film and the setting, and the juggling of persona's that make the 2nd half such a pot-boiler.
Well, All that's true. Jude Law and Gwyneth are as close to Greek gods as anyone on the screen in decades. But the thing that makes this movie so different than other, lesser mysteries is Matt Damon's Ripley. He's living on the fringe of society and as events unfold, he falls out of 'normal space' and becomes a full-fledged sociopath.
It's the transformation which is so rare to see on film, and which is so heartbreaking, because we know Ripley wanted to fly right and is fully aware of his own downfall. He's likeable even as a monster, and, like watching a car crash, I couldn't look away. The film was not unlike watching somebody bluff at poker and continue to win against mounting odds. The chutzpa / cajones required to go down that path were either amazing or pathological - more likely the latter. In the end he's forced to kill his male suitor and it becomes clear that there's no place left for him in normal society. He's tainted. I wanted him captured, not just because he was so dangerous but also because he was unhappily living a lie. He had lost the real game of life and was inventing an alternate reality which had no chance and caused him constant psychic pain. In the end his only escape was prison or the grave.

The best Lupin movie; one of Miyazaki's best movies


This movie is interesting and if your looking fro an action packed movie this is it. This movie isn't rated and does contain fowl language. But that's because it's dubed in American and it needs to be more Americanized. If your kids want james bond but are too young try this.

It get's him down until the nun that helped raise him said that the guy that was the only father figure in his life(who had also died) had a son.

12 Monkeys - movie DVD cover picture
Prequel to "A Beautiful Mind" and Sixth Sense/Usual Suspects


This new genre of "twisted reality" movies includes 12 Monkeys. I watched this movie for a second time when I bought the DVD, as I also have the Laser Disc. Upon second viewing, I was shocked at how much I had missed getting caught up in the plot twists and action. I read the reviews, and feel this important aspect of the movie has not been mentioned. The movie drops a lot of enigmatic hints, a la the Sixth Sense and A Beautiful Mind, as to what is real and not real. You really have to watch for them. For example: some of the things he remembers seeing in the "future", he sees again when he goes back into the past, to places where he's never been. How are "memories" from the FUTURE possible? Especially when Bruce says he's never been above ground before! How can one have "deja vu" after travelling to the past? Even Bruce has a confused look on his face whenever one of these clues to his mental state are realized. Also the bit the previous reviewer mentioned about the lady scientist on the plane. Which did he see first, or did he see just one, and imagine the other. Was he really ever in the future? Is he imagining it all? The movie leaves it up to you to decide whether Bruce Willis is from the future and saves the world, or whether he's just crazy, and we are seeing this from a crazy persons viewpoint. It's done so subtley that getting caught up in the dramatic story, one can miss the clues. I didnt catch this upon the first viewing, many images Bruce see's in the story are repeated, so as to imply that Willis was imagining things, or was he? Also, in scenes where Madeline Stowe is convinced he's from the future, they are alone! If one removes the scenes where he's ALONE with people, the case can be made that the entire adventure is imagined!Also, he says he's not crazy, but he hears voices when he's in the hospital, and he pulls out his teeth, because they've got radio transmitters in them! And the voice he hears in his head is from somebody he meets LATER in the film for the first time. Or maybe he IS crazy and knew him before he imagined he was a time traveller! So did he imagine them? The reviewer before me was left with questions about the scientist from the "future" being on the plane. This is the last clue they leave you with, and it messes with your head. If one watches the movie starting with the premise that Bruce is crazy, the movie is another movie! UNLIKE the Sixth Sense or Usual Suspects, this movie does'nt give you the big dramatic payoff at the end, when you find out what the truth is. That big payoff made one want to see the Sixth Sense again to see the clues you then knew must exist.Monkey's just leaves you hanging.So you can enjoy it on two levels. This movie totally messes with your head. I'll save you some time: Bruce Willis is crazy and 12 Monkey's are the imaginings of a paranoid schitzophrenic. Or are they? By the way, voices helped me write this review ;)

The Passion of Joan of Arc - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
a "Passion" worth watching


I'll save some space and make the following suggestion:
See this film, then ask yourself where you have seen it before. You have seen this film before. In some of the greatest films made after this, by directors who saw this film. The most visceral scenes in Spielberg's "Schindlers List" came straight from The Passion.
With the above in mind, recall that the film was made with a script taken directly and completely from the transcripts of the actual trial. How often does life lead to great art?
I would wish more often, except that that could mean something extremely wonderful - of horrific.
See this film. It is worth it.

A must see film!


"20,000 Leauges Under the Sea" is a great film the entire family will enjoy. James Mason is perfectly cast as the passionate Captain Nemo. Kirk Douglas shines in the role of Ned Land. The director did a perfect job in making the film like the book and keeping the basic idea of the story intact. I would give this 20 stars if I could. I highly recommend it. It's wonderful! A real treat! I think it's one of the best science fiction stories around. It has adventure and excitement, and is such a truly entertaining film, it's one I could watch over and over and never tire. It ranks as one of my favorite all time films.

exciting events of teenagers and vampires


I loved the movie because it had the "boy next door" thrown into a series of events where he not only has to prove that a vampire, who just moved next door to him, exists but has to use all his teenage ingenuity to stop the vampire(s) from converting his friends into gouls. Roddy Mcdowell is a great contrast to the teenage scene as a washed up actor turned vampire killer who with his english accent ads a great flavor to the movie. The movie is filled with real exotic scenes of sex and night music that every teenager dreams of!. watch it
