After all the Hype, It Really is a Classic!


As I write this brief review, it is four years since "Titanic" came out, and there have been many Big Movies since then. Now that the hype has died down, it's time for a calm assessment of James Cameron's film.
It really is a classic, comparable--as the Amazon reviewer Jeff Shannon said--to "Gone With the Wind." Indeed, there are significant parallels between the two. The most visually emotional scene in "Gone With the Wind" was the receding wide-angle camera shot of the dead and wounded soldiers. In "Titanic," it is the unforgettable shot, not much above eye-level, of the dead victims of hyperthermia, their heads bobbing in the cold Atlantic. Images like these become icons in one's personal memory--that with the beauty and grandeur of this world there are stark images of mass death to remind us of human follies like civil wars or ships that cut back on safety features or lifeboats. To his great credit, Director Cameron did not play "Can you top this?" with "Gone With the Wind," he played "Can I match this and do it in a different way?" But he shows that he is a student of many other movies. Reviewers have cited the "Romeo and Juliet" aspects of the romantic story, but I don't know if anyone has mentioned Cameron's considerable borrowing from that great Charles Boyer-Jean Arthur film of 1937, "History is Made at Night." No matter; you can see and enjoy both films without feeling that either detracts from the other. A true "homage" can be like that.
Many viewers might say that "Gone With the Wind" and "Titanic" are epic love stories, and they of course are right, but I see the films as epics with love stories attached. Even within the love stories themselves, they are less about romance than they are about turning points in the lives of the heroines. It was not Clark Gable that shaked Janet Leigh out of her Southern complacency; it was the civil war. Similarly, it was the peril of a sinking ship that sent Kate Winslet back to try to save Leonardo DiCaprio in the hold even though, at that moment, he appeared to her to be an opportunist and a jewel thief. Perhaps the most important factor in the success of both "Gone With the Wind" and "Titanic" is that the epic story is intrinsic to the love story, and the love story is intrinsic to the epic. This is not easy to do, as "Pearl Harbor"-despite its great special effects--amply confirms.
For all its borrowings, "Titanic" has a moment, at the very end, that has never been tried before in the history of the movies and probably will never be repeated. Just when you think the picture is over, and you see the remains of the Titanic as it appears today at the bottom of the ocean, the camera takes you back into the ship and back in time and you proceed into the grand ballroom where all the characters in the fictional part of the movie are assembled. And then you find that it is not you who is walking up the grand stairway, but rather it is Kate Winslet, and at the top is Leonardo DiCaprio in his street clothes as we remember him. They kiss and everyone applauds. What James Cameron has given us in this final moment is nothing other than a Curtain Call. It gives us the feeling, for once in the movies, akin to seeing the end of great play in the theatre. It tells us of reality on two levels: the historical reality of the drama we have just seen, and the present reality of actors who have done some good work for us in telling us the story of that drama.

Better than "Spice"!


I got this for Christmas two years ago and I liked it from the start! "Spice Up Your Life" is a great song to put at the beginning of the CD. And it just got better from there.
As for "Denying" and "Viva Forever", I have to admit I don't listen to them that much unless I'm in the mood to listen to those songs. But I still like them though.
And as I said in my summary, I think it's better than their debut CD. In fact, I can't wait to get their new CD(if it comes out soon)!
And no, I am NOT a teenybopper!

This Movie Is THE BOMB!!!!!!!!


This is absolutely the worst movie I've ever seen. All reviews brag about the low cost of production - 40.000$ or so ... guess what ... you got that much out of it (proportionally speaking). Anybody with 400$ to put down for a video camera and perhaps 500$ for 16mm rental can do as good as those guys... Great marketing, however...

Unbreakable (Vista Series) - movie DVD cover picture
an under appreciated movie


If your expecting the sixth sense then save your money and watch the sixth sense again. If your looking for a superhero movie like Batman, Superman or Blade save your time and cash instead, and watch any one of those good movies. However, if your interested in watching a really great film that just happens to be about a guy who has some super human powers then watch this movie. Unbreakable is way too slow moving to be considered an action movie.
However, the slow pacing of unbreakable is really it's strength. Director M. Night Shyamalan is a minimalist. He hides acting treasures in scenes where the slightest gesture conveys a magnitude of information. For example, when Bruce Willis's character meets his wife and son after surviving the train wreck, his son has them join hands. They walk a few steps with their son in front of them, and soon their hands fall away from each other. In that one instant you see exactly what their relationship is like. Just as in the Sixth Sense, Shyamalan loves to hide clues to the ending throughout the movie so pay close attention.
As for the DVD itself, I'm very impressed with the packaging, and design. When you slide the dvd out of it's case it opens up into a beautifully designed book that further unfolds to reveal the two disks inside. The menu's for the DVD's are dynamic, refreshing, and easy to navigate, the extra's are great. I found the documentary on comic books really fasinating. The Director's commentary on the deleted scenes was also really good. The sound quality was amazing. I can't over emphasize the quality and detail of the packaging. If you loved the film get this DVD it's worth the money!

The Simpsons - The Complete Sixth Season - movie DVD cover picture
5 stars for season; minus a million points for packaging


Minus a million points (said by Homer to Patty and Selma) may have been another season, but it summed up my feeling about the useless novelty package. I'm not going to jump off a bridge over it or anything, but it sure makes stacking your Simpson DVD's together much more difficult.
The negative aside, I know everyone has favorite seasons, favorite episodes, favorite catch phrases, as well as opinions on when (or if) the Simpson's had the jump the shark moment, so I'll try and avoid being too opinionated here. I will say this season had some greats for me. Grampa's Love Potion- which has a subplot of the kids trying to figure out what is going wrong with the adults- has always owned me. Homer as a sex offender, or at least an accused one, had a lot of great gags spiced with just the right amount of satirizing of modern society. Personally I even liked the "who shot mr. burns" episode(s), which seems to rank low with a lot of people. The songs- as always- hard to top.

In conclusion, while the novelty packaging fell flatter for me than Bart's factory- the season itself was our favorite family gold. The price seems fine, but don't ask me how the economy works.

Wow! What a movie for the dancer in all of us!


I have seen the movie seven times, I am moved every time I view it. Vanessa and Chayanne are great in their performances. The dance scenes are gorgeous and delightful. The movie moves your heart and take you back to a time when you wish you could move that way. My hat off to the director for their choice of actors and singers. I was so moved by the music, I purchased the album.

Perfect, just perfect!


I sat through this movie feeling slightly ill at ease with the reality of these characters. The casting and the acting was spot on; it was great to see the incredibly talenetd Jane Horrocks reprise her stage role - I can't image any one else making her character work. What a stellar cast - Ewan McGregor, Jim Broadbent, Michael Cain and Brenda Blethyn were all so absolutely believable, reinforcing my belief that English actors are the most versatile in the world!
