J'adore 8 Femmes!


I loved this movie, but I will say it is not for everyone, it has an aquired taste, but the cast is fantastic and the satire is good as well.

Sharon Osbourne Rocks


The Osbournes are the coolest family on TV. When I watch it I have to turn on the Ozzy translator because he mummbles so much you can barely understand him. My favorite episode is when Sharon threw the ham in to her neighbors yard. Ozzy and Sharon should wash Kelly's and Jack's mouth out with soap due to the fact the way they talk to their parents

Seven Faces of Dr. Lao - movie DVD cover picture
A CLASSIC GEM THAT YOU'VE GOT TO SEE


This little sleeper is a gem that you've got to experience. Doesn't matter if you're a child or an adult, it's an imaginative, humorous and as enlightening experience you'll want to share with everyone. Tony Randall was born to play the role of Dr. Lao (and his six cohorts). Thoughtful and provoking to watch with an open mind.

Great DVD, great commentary


This film is probably the best I've seen all year. Not only are the performances so memorable, but Merendino managed to construct a great piece of work out of the underused but always intriguing non-linear narrative with a lot of skill and great fun. Even better than all the fun stuff, however, is the way the film is fair to every character and the way it handles Stevo's dad - a great choice. Let me pause to reflect on the brilliant Matthew Lillard: I rented this knowing but not necessarily appreciating Matthew Lillard and have emerged with the firm belief that he is the greatest actor of his generation. If you don't believe me, watch him in scenes in which he is reacting to others. He has the innate gift of commanding an audience with just one facial expression or one minute gesture. On the DVD commentary (which is the most entertaining commentary I've ever heard, by the way), Merendino jokingly refers to Lillard's reactions as "mugging," but I don't think that's his technique at all. Instead, I think Lillard just knows how to act in front of a camera and knows how to keep the audience laughing and, above all, interested in what's going on in a scene. Mr. Lillard, I salute you. And Mr. Merendino, I can't wait to see what you do next. Buy this DVD and add it to your collection of classics. By far the best film of 1999.

Rainer Werner Fassbinder--Remember the Man and his Films


This could be a good introduction to the terse, emotionally-layered films of Fassbinder, who is becoming recognized as having had a great impact during his short 37 years (deceased in 1982). His films focus on human themes that transcend era or epoch. Here we find a fruit-peddler, who, although seemingly doomed in his early forays into the world and cursed by his mother, continues to work to find meaning in his relationships with women, men, and the world of commerce. Yet, this well-meaning man sinks further into despair and depression, as life goes on. A poignant tale that is timeless, and as visionary today as it was the day it was released. Very highly recommended!

A Great movie!


While others have questioned the historical accuracy of Oliver Stone in this film, it is really the super acting job done by film greats such as Anthony Hopkins and Joan Allen that allow me to give this film five stars. The Collectors Edition has some nice extras but I would have expected more.The film is more relevant to someone like me who lived through the Nixon years and saw how his actions divided America. I think this film really portrays that period in our history when we were divided. Nixon could have done a lot to heal the wounds but did not.
Get this film, especially if you lived through those times.

Litmus Test for Sense of Humor


This is by far the best comedy series ever and has become the litmus test in our house for judging a friend's sense of humor (glad to report that most pass the test). Evidence of its genius: I have seen all six episodes at least 20 times and still find it just as funny as the first viewing. Really really good. Will trade left arm for second season in North American format -- my sister who lives in London gave me the UK DVD and it is tormenting me from the cupboard!

Amazing!!!


How old are the people writing the bad reviews? Even my 50 year old father enjoyed this movie emensly! I watched the movie knowing what to expect from Baz, my friend however did not. We were both completely blown away! Everything was amazing, the colors, the costumes, the sets, the characters! You loved and hated the right people in all the right spots. You laugh, you cry, you cheer! What more could you ask from a movie? This is by far one of the greatest movies I have EVER seen! And the more you watch the more you find that amuses you! (Watch it again and don't be afraid of the rewind and pause buttons!) It just doesn't get much better than this!
