Jet Lis Best


This was an amazing good movie, for being a remake. Jet Li does what he do best: Fighting. lots of it. Too bad they dubbed things wrong, but as a martial arts movie its the best ive seen.
One more good thing is that Jet Li starred in this movie because he wanted to do one more beliveable and without wirework. (Instead of once upon a time in china, where he can fly sometimes.)

Pennies From Heaven - movie DVD cover picture
A clever take on an old genre


This is a wide ranging musical comedy done in the style of post-depression era musicals, including brilliant performances from Steve Martin, Bernadette Peters, and Christopher Walken. One might take the movie literally as a love story, but upon further consideration we see that it's actually a movie dedicated to the upbeat songs and movies of days long gone by. I recommend movie highly as it is sometimes boisterous, and other times delicately romantic, but all the while very entertaining. @see-also "Radio Days" END

Sam Raimi pleases new fans with story and plot and old fans


I admit it, I saw the movie first, then read the book, which was good. The movie can stand alone as a provocative, wonderfully acted morality play, BUT, had I read the book FIRST, I would have been disappointed at the license taken regarding the motivation behind one of the killings. (I'm not giving anything away here. You'll know what I'm referring to if you've read the book and seen the movie.) Billy Bob Thornton was absolutely brilliant in this movie; his last scene stayed with me for days. Maybe the most horrific thing about this story is that it truly seems like it could happen.

not as bad as all that!


I found "Swordfish", aside from its predictable ending, to be an enjoyable action ride from beginning to end.Jackman, Travolta, Berry and Cheadle are all very watchable in this movie. Being a fan of the pure-escape action genre ( I refer to Bruce Willis' classics as the "Die-Hard Trilogy" ), I can only assume that those that pan "Swordfish" are not fans of the genre to begin with.

Pink Floyd - The Wall - movie DVD cover picture
Very well done, but the movie should be rated NC-17.


The movie was rated R when it was released in theaters, but I think it should be rated NC-17. it is very well done. Before you see this movie, you should either hear or buy the album and listen to it.
Some parts that even I don't understand: -Pink swimming in in a pool of blood during The Thin Ice.
-Pink's flesh decaying and turning into a wierd paper meche thing during Comfortably Numb
-Pink cutting himself and shaving his nipples.
-The kids rioting during In The Flesh?
-Pink watching TV out in the desert.
Why I think this movie should be rated NC-17:
-there is a scene with Pink and his wife in bed, his wive's breasts fully exposed.
-Pink cuts his nipples.
-Pink turns into a paper-meche worm and later rips the coating off and emerges as a new Pink.
-Flowers imitate female and male sex organs and copulate.
-many women go to a joint, bust security with their good looks, strip to the waist, and perform oral sex on a cop.
-Pink is seen in bed, naked, copulating with his wife, naked.
-Gerald Scarfe's cartoon figures have details that expose breasts and anuses.
-There is a lot of blood and gore in the movie.

Excellent!


This movie is an absolute ride! Give this one a shot and forget about "The Naked Kiss." I saw "Kiss" first and came into "Shock Corridor" with quite a negative bias, but I love this movie. It's very offbeat and original. I'd recommend this movie for people who desire something wholly original and entertaining.

OMG!!!.....IT'S ABOUT TIME


I've waited for this day to come, which i thought would never get here. I once owned this movie on VHS..but someone had stolen it from me. This is my all time favorite scary movie. I grew up on watching this film, and when I had seen that MGM was releasing it in DVD, it almost brought tears to my eye's. No other movie has ever given me the creeps as much as this movie has. I had seen the sequel to this movie Return of the Living Dead 2 in theaters, when I was a child. I loved that movie to, but there's something about the first one, that keeps me hooked for life. My boyfriend grew up near by where they had filmed the cemetary, and i defenitly plan to visit. I will always charish this movie, and this time I'm going to lock it in a safe, so no one can take it away from me again...thanks amazon.

Joan of Arc - movie DVD cover picture
The best Joan of Arc television film yet!


I absolutely love this film!!!
Joan is superbly acted by the beautiful and talented leelee sobieski, her portrayal of joan is captivating and believable(the most lovable joan). A Brillant Cast of characters, each with a unique degree of personality and character, especially from the performance of legendary actor Peter O'Toole(Bishop Cauchon) and Neil Patrick Harris(King Charles) plays his part very well(not sure about his hair style but). The costume designs are excellent and the scenery brillantly chosen and filmed(real castles)...
This is a family film with hearts, a very moving film that introduces the life of joan of arc in all her glories. As I understand many critics will argue against the lack of historical accuracy of this film... I agree, certain scenes are dramatized and distorted in the film, but only to enchance the viewing experience(entertainment values). This is not a documentary and it should be enjoyed as a family film... Atleast this is how I want to remember Joan of Arc as she is portrayed in this film.
I also love the angelic voice of Charlotte church at the opening and ending of the film... Wow!
If you ask me? I enjoyed every minutes of it... 5 Stars ***** If you don't ask me I still give it a 5 Stars :D
