Jaws (The best film of our time)


This is the best film of this generation, based upon the novel by author Peter Benchley and directed by the most successful director of our time, Steven Spielberg.
When the small summer island resort town of Amity is set upon by a twenty-five foot man-eating great white shark, Chief of Police Martin Brody (Roy Scheider), an old shark hunter named Quint (Robert Shaw), and ichthyologist Matthew Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) set off on an uncharted, desperate quest to destroy the marauding killer embodying three tons of instantanious white death. A 100% must-see classic from Universal Pictures. If you don't own this movie yet or haven't seen it quite yet (which I very highly doubt), watch this awesome thriller!

Sex and the City - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
The truth and comedy about sex, new and powerful!


When I first heard about Sex in the City, I thought it was another of the "Chick Shows" that men should run from. I was expecting the demographics were going to be the 35 year old, twice divorced, man hating women of the world. But after the first episode, I haven't missed the show once since (I do have a life, and a VCR).
My wife enjoys the show because of the women be empowered and educated. I like the show because they say things that men always want to know. Plus the four ladies aren't hard on the eyes. If you watch this show and don't laugh out loud at some point, go to PBS and watch the Antique Roadshow.

Lost Horizon - movie DVD cover picture
"Welcome...to Shangri-La"


With those calmly spoken words, we and Ronald Colman are ushered into the remarkable fantasy world where no one grows old in real time and everyone seems supremely happy--except for the brooding Maria, that is. A menacing Mongolian hijacks Colman's plane and its passengers on a mysterious flight to a snowy mountain region beyond Tibet. What for? That's what the High Lama, played by Sam Jaffee has to impart to Colman. The other passengers are chomping at the bit to leave Shangri-La, but slowly get drawn into the life they have found there. Colman's feeling no pain either, as he begins a romance with Jane Wyatt, a pixie-ish lass he pursues to a romantic waterfall. But ultimately, he faces a difficult challenge: should he remain in this land, selfishly enjoying himself, or should he brave the blizzard conditions with his malcontent brother and Maria, his brother's girlfriend, to return to the frantic life he left behind? The film has wonderful atmosphere and even the archival footage worked into the video as still shots with the original soundtrack over them works well--it just makes you realize how great the actors' speaking voices were in the age of radio. My personal favorite scene is a prolonged conversation between Colman and the exceptional HB Warner as Chang, when Chang explains to Colman how Shangri-La was founded, while he and Colman are evidently cracking walnuts. The rapport between these two pros is excellent; you really don't want the scene to end, it's so well executed. I heartily recommend "Lost Horizon" as a simply enchanting movie.

Signs (Vista Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent


I waited months for this movie to come out. *Signs* is not a bad movie save for the fact that it is not all that creepy. Call it a sci-fi thriller rather than horror film, *Signs* is about how an unknown mysterious set of crop circles elaborate overnight in a field owned by Graham Hess (played by Mel Gibson). Graham is a minister who has lost his faith after his wife is killed. Joaquin Phoenix plays his brother Merrill who has just moved in to take care of Graham's two children. After sighting the crop circles in his cornfield, Graham quickly dismisses any potential threat and concludes it as a hoax, hoping to appease his disturbed children. A series of strange events including the reported sightings of UFOs on TV escalate Graham's alert about these mysterious crop circles. Rumor has it that it could be a new round of alien invasion. The movie has a slow start but quickly builds up the suspense. For a long time the suspense really has it on the audience that something horrible might creep up around the Graham's house. The scene in which Gibson and Phoenix roam about into the cornfield at night is creepy. Otherwise it's more like a sci fi thriller. Beautiful cinematography. 39/50 = 3.9 stars.

BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!


December 3,2000 was a watershed day in the lives of gay men & women in America.At 10pm that evening the face of television was forever changed by 3 words...."Queer As Folk".Sure,Toronto(where it's filmed)isn't Pittsburgh(where it's set),but that's just a minor minus in a sea full of pluses.Hot guys,awesome music,and characters that will stay with you long after the series has ended,perish the thought.This DVD set is a perfect intro to those just starting with season 2.a MUST HAVE in every DVD collection.

WHERE ARE THE B&W EPISODES, GIVE US ALL OF THE SAINT!!!!!!!!


This is one of my favorite shows, I've only seen a few color episodes. The black and white ones are the episodes that made me think this show's so great and it still is. I preordered both box sets, they're great but until the b&w sets come out I will feel a little cheated. It isn't mentioned anywhere on the site that these box set's are all color episodes. I'm asuming that means they're later episodes. I'm not sure. I'm not sure if this show still airs on the mystery channel, but that's where I used to watch it (fyi)

Best TV western series ever made.


Paladin is the ultimate hero. He represents the true American image of a "knight without armor in a savage land." His business card, "Have Gun will Travel" is a classic. I hope all the season's series will be available.

Pretty Good Flick


Here we have a movie about a young man who enlists the services of an "interpersonal relationship field technician level one expert".Things get out of hand rather quickly for him and Lana kind of spins his head around-sometimes a woman can do that to a guy.I thought Ms.DeMornay's character was strong and Tom Cruises character was rattlebrained and weak. I thought all the cast fit together good and the movie was great and in the end Joel(Tom) got the break and I guess he got the girl in real life too.Personally I think Tom Cruise is overated as an actor but I'm not a dizzy broad,I'm a guy so I guess it's a girl thing!Anyway it's worth watching!
