Japanese masterpiece


Never in my life had I seen such a film, and I see almost three or four films a week. When it finished, I couldn`t stop crying for about fifteen minutes. It was so intensive, powerful and emotive that we only can thanks Kitano for making movies like this. At the beggining of his carrer, Kitano was compared with Eastwood, but watching this film makes me think of another genious: Melville, and his masterwork, The Samurai. The movie is not only about Kitano's particular point of view about death and goodbyes. More important, it's about loyalty to the ones who are close to any of us, the only important moral rule that guides the film. I have only one recommendation: see the film as many times as you can

What Zombie Movies Should Be Like


Lucio Fulci nailed it with 'Zombie'. It is the quintessential zombie film. Pay no attention to the mindless critics who would have you believe this is a lame rip-off of 'Dawn of the Dead'. As a pure zombie film, it beats 'DOTD' in all aspects. The rip-off theory comes from the simple fact that distributors attempted to present 'Zombie' as a sequel to 'DOTD' in Europe, in an attempt to cash in on the success of 'DOTD'. Otherwise, it doesn't remotely resemble 'DOTD'.
Fulci's zombies are digusting, putrid, decaying, mangled corpses, which is what fans of the genre desire. They are simply the best representations of zombies on film. You won't get any of Romero's 'powder-blue' zombies in this film. The make-up & special effects are surprisingly good for a 1979 film. The zombie vs. shark sequence is great! The plot is very simple & effective: a missing doctor's crewless sailboat leads his daughter & a reporter to the remote island of Matoull, in the Antilles. The island is cursed, and soon zombies are closing in on all residents. The recently-dead are returning to life, as do some other 'surprise' guests of Matoull. Time is running out, and there's nowhere to run. Pretty frightening plot, if you think about it. Flesh-craving zombies aggressively seeking out every living being on a remote island, with a fittingly apocalyptic ending.
There's plenty of Fulci's trademark over-the-top gore, but it is spaced out well-enough, as are the zombies that appear onscreen, so as not to become the focal point. Fulci creates a genuinely creepy, barren atmosphere on the island as the film progresses. It seems to be is style to move things along a bit slowly, but it in no way hinders the film. It's not a love story, it's not about the characters, it's a zombie flick and it triumphs as such. You'll enjoy this film more each time you watch it.
I've seen many reviewers here label Lucio Fulci a hack, while heaping praise on the likes of Dario Argento. I must say it's a bit confusing. Fulci presents a much more enjoyable experience than anything I've seen by Argento. Fulci's work never comes off as pretentious,or taking itself too seriously, or 'too brilliant for the viewer to understand'. His work is far superior to that of Argento's 'arthouse' unwatchable trash. If you believe the hype about Argento and the panning of Fulci, you are certainly missing the superior horror experience.

Chinese Box - movie DVD cover picture
You either love or hate this film, I absolutely LOVED it


As with all true masterpieces, you either love or hate this film. I have read all of the reviews for this film on Amazon.com and IMDB (Internet Movie Database) and one thing stands out: All of the reviewers either pointed out what a piece of trash this movie was, or were totally and completely entralled with it's cinematographic spendor. I must confess that I fall into the latter category. I have watched literally thousands of movies in my life (average of 10 per week) and I have to admit that most of them have been forgotten. It is for movies like Chinese Box that I wade through the endless sea of mediocre and just plain pointless films, on the off chance that I will find a jewel in the rough. I feel that Chinese Box is one of the true jems, I would place it in my top 3 list. For those who have experienced the truly memorable experiences (both good and bad) that life can throw at those who REALLY think and care, this movie is for you ! It will dredge all of the past meloncholic feelings out of your subconscious mind and shatter your everyday demeanor. I found myself in tears at the beautiful conclusion of this film, something that only 1 other movie (Bladerunner) has ever been able to accomplish. I have never in my life viewed a motion picture that so perfectly captures the essence of the human condition. All in all, I would say that this is one of the few films I will ever watch again and again, and ever time that I view it will bring exquisite new meaning to this most meaningful piece of art. No, correct that, this MASTERPIECE of cinematography.

Peter Frampton - Live in Detroit - movie DVD cover picture
This DVD is one great time!


This DVD is one of Peter Frampton's best. I personally feel it's a notch above Frampton Comes Alive. If you loved FCA then you have to have this. Better yet it's also avaiable on cd. Either way you won't be disappointed. He is like a fine wine and gets better with age. I Don't Need No Doctor will blow you away. Not to mention there's a special treat here for the first time live with Oh For Another Day. If You Say Goodbye is a new song and it is excellent. And all the old favorites sounding better than ever.... So go ahead treat your self. It's Peter Frampton at his absolute best. Bob Mayo deserves a mention here for his talents shine, shine, shine. There's definitely Something Happening this year and it's called Live in Detroit. Don't miss it!

Good series!


This isn't a "girly" anime. Well, okay, I guess it is about girls and it was targetted at girls.
It doesn't matter, it's a damn good story line!

(BTW, I'm male, well past teenager and mentally stable. My favourite movies include "Das Boot" and "Bladerunner" for your reference).

I'm not sure what bad things to say about it, it's just a really nice story, and it isn't watered down for children either, although I'm sure younger kids can also enjoy it.

I had heard nothing about this series before, but having nothing to do, I borrowed a copy. By the 1st volume, I was hooked, so I'm gonna buy the boxed set and finish it off!

This DVD will kick your ....


The way this workout is broken up really helps the time to go by. It works the muscles and gets the heart rate going. It's also a shorter workout for time conscientious exercisers. The only thing I don't like are the pasted on smiles in the background. Also, if you can't handle jumping jacks, you may have skip one circuit.
