Collateral - movie DVD cover picture
Jamie Foxx's movie


It is a Micheal Mann movie, so you can expect great photography, well thought out plot and palpable tension, but the real stand out in this movie for me is Jamie Foxx. He was able to portray the vunerable taxi driver's anxiety and solitary fear as he drives Tom Cruise's around L.A. killing people. This is the way to go if you're gonna be a hired killer, don't have to worry about parallel parking and running out of time on those pesky meter parking. Back to Foxx, he shines in this one. He's an intelligent, seemingly classically trained actor. You can't help but feel impress. Foxx has a comedic face and he is known for comedy but he can also do drama and "Collateral" is the proof. He's come a long way from playing "LaQueta." The movie itself is beaurtiful to look at. Micheal Mann treated Los Angeles at night like an icy blonde, nice to look at with dangerous underpinnings. For you folks who used to live in L.A., you might get a little homesick. The plot and the tension is nicely paced and builds to a frantic ending. Oh, and Cruise is very convincing as a high priced killer, although his character could have done without the powderd, gray hair. It made him look anemic. The DVD has some nice extras, you see the attention that Mann, Foxx, and Cruise gave to this project and that's why this DVD is so highly recommmended.

Marvelous tribute to Bob le Flambeur!


At last Neil Jourdan made a free adaptation of that fundamental movie of the purest New Wave spirit film of Jean Pierre Melville , Bob le flambeur .This remake is very well made , charming and elegant and if it lacks the bitterness of Bob le Flambeur , the characters are very well depicted and loaded of black humor and double twist jokes .Kusturica as Vlado is outstanding , and the same adjective goes to Nick Nolte . Jourdan handles the camera with legendary masterful . The story never leaves you quiet , it's kinetic and dynamic .Filmned with very broad gusto in this beautiful paradisiac coast: La rivera francesa .A triumph all the way!

An inspiration for my blond granddaughter!


This movie was a pleasant surprise - I was not expecting a whole lot, however the charm of Reese and the plot had me interested the whole way... Despite the initial 'I am going to hate this thing about some sorority queen' feeling, the movie progresses into something just simply great fun to watch. I found myself cheering our 'dumb blonde' right up till the end once she starts to take the law school thing seriously. A lot of cute twists and gotchas that far outweigh other movies in this category!!

Sweetly passionate; high quality sound- If you haven't experienced Switchfoot, you're really missing out!Grab their new dvd "Switchfoot: Live in Sandiego" while it's in stock- if only for the fact that it includes sets from The Beautiful Letdown (a v. awesome & soulful cd! <3) As you sway and croon out the lyrics along with the band, you'll wish you were 'live in SanDiego' too :)

Fine Holiday Fun!


This is a sweet, funny, and entertaining movie. There is no deep moral substance here, however, it is hip and fun. Alicia Silverstone is perfectly cast as Cher, adored by boys, and envied by girls outside of her social circles. When it comes to love, Cher is totally clueless. Paul Rudd is charming as Josh, Cher's unlikely dream boy.

As Good As It Gets - movie DVD cover picture
One of the '90s most beautiful comedies


Another reviewer comments that the events in this film conspire to make Jack Nicholson (or rather Melvyn Udall) a human being. On the contrary, this is a film where the central character, an obsessive-compulsive bigot, is human from the start: We just don't realize it. A key moment in the film is when Simon, Melvin's gay neighbour (Greg Kinnear), is telling the young male prostitute, Vincent (Skeet Ulrich), about his art, and comments that he likes to watch people because sometimes, when you look at someone long enough, "you see their humanity." At that point Vincent is momentarily enabled to see something beyond the seedy world of male prostitution; at the same time Simon gives us the interpretive key to the whole movie. It is a film about three very different people who discover their common humanity.
Melvin is a hateful and insensitive recluse with a debilitating mental disorder; Carol (Helen Hunt), a Manhattan waitress struggling with her son's chronic illness and finding her identity swallowed up in the process; Simon, a gay artist who loses everything when he is attacked and robbed in his own home. One by one they must learn to see the humanity in each other and, as importantly, in themselves ("Where'd I go?" asks Simon as he looks at the reflection of his battered face in the mirror). We, too, must learn to see the human being underneath the spiteful and vicious (if somewhat the "loveable rogue") in Melvin.
The theme is developed sensitively and beautifully throughout the course of the film (perhaps only slightly overlong at more than two hours), with help coming from a fourth character, Verdelle, a dog, whose pivotal role in the narrative is easily overlooked (standing in the same cinematic tradition as Toto of "The Wizard of Oz"). By the end of the film, we are aware that the big issues in the character's lives are still to be totally overcome, but the process of resolution has begun as it should, with the characters each recognizing the dignity and worth of the others (and themselves).
James L. Brook's delicate direction carefully avoids excessive sentimentalism and saccharine sweetness (though admittedly, it teeters perilously close to the edge at times), and results in one of the most charming and profound comedies of recent years.
