Fist of Legend - movie DVD cover picture
Jet Li's best!


I was never a big fan of Jet Li's films,"Romeo must die" was pretty good,and "Lethal weapon 4" was okay,but Jet Li's talents never clicked with me until I saw "Fist of legend".The plot for "Fist of legend" wasn't very original,and bubbing was terrible,and the acting wasn't all that,but the fight sequences are better than anything I've seen before.I highly reccomend this film,it should be a classic,but it probably won't get what it deserves because it was direct to video release.But beware,this is only for martial arts fans,I hope you enjoy it as much as I did,enjoy!

Cannot watch just once


I have viewed Magnolia at least five times now and every time it surpasses that last time. This is one most magnificent movies ever made. Each and every character stands out. If you only watch it once and don't understand what it's all about and never try to see it again, you have missed a movie that will be as powerful 50 years from now as it is today.

What Dreams May Come - movie DVD cover picture
The Movie Your Preacher/Pastor/Priest would like to Burn...


This Movie is so Absolutely Incredible, that I went to see it Twice at the movie theater! I rarely watch a movie twice, unless I wait a few years, between viewings....but, "What Dreams May Come" is a breakthrough in Visually understanding the After-Life. Most of the concepts explored in this movie are blatant depictions of Hermetic Knowledge....stuff you could only learn from the Secret Schools, after studying the books The Pope tried to Burn out of existence. This is pure Science (Hermetic Science): "Raising and Lowering the Vibratory Rate (Level of Consciousness)" to go to whatever level of the Astral Plane of existence ("Heaven" /"Hell" / "Limbo") a person should wish to travel in the After-World. This movie makes Sense out of Dogma and shows that "Heaven" and "Hell" are just "States of Mind." If you are depressed, "evil," tormented, etc., Mentally...then you are in "Hell." However, if your basic "Vibratory Rate" is a happy, satisfied, struggling towards understanding, or in-love "State of Mind"....you find "Heaven." This movie makes so much sense and explains Dreams, The After-Life and Psychology in such a Wonderful and Beautiful format, that I must place it on my "Top-Ten" list!!! Be happy, when you make the Transition to the Next Life....and be happy that this is money well-spent ! Believe me, you cannnot only watch this film once--so save trips to the Video Rental Store!

The Matrix Reloaded (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
One of the coolest action movies, ever!


First off, I can't believe this movie has gotten some of the bad reviews it has. Were they even watching the movie? The only thing I can think of is that the movie went right over their heads. This is one of the coolest movies I have ever seen. The special effects are unprecedented by any other movie. The action scenes are very cool. This is a much watch for any Matrix fan, or any action movie fan period. I can understand if the plot does get somewhat confusing, but if you just pay attention, it is not that hard to follow. This is one of those movies that after it is over, all you want to do is talk about it. That is also very helpful too, because often times, different people understand different things about the movie, so if you all discuss it, everybody will understand it better.

The James Bond Collection, Volume 1 - movie DVD cover picture
Well worth the price


I received this set yesterday, and I love it. This is what DVD was invented for folks. Each disc is filled with tons of extras, amazing animations, AND the movie! This makes it well worth the price.
Granted, I don't know why MGM chose to release these particular 7 in this set, but what does it really matter? MGM will eventually release all of them. They are coming out in three sets.
I personally think this is a wonderful product.

The Praise Baby Collection: God Of Wonders - movie DVD cover picture
God of Wonders is Wonderful


Loving this DVD! I picked it up for my 19 month old daughter after really enjoying the first of the "Praise Baby" DVDs, and evidently we've hit gold again.

My daughter is a sweet child, but NOT a cuddler, yet she'll sit down and snuggle with me while we watch the show together. If for nothing else, I'll give it 5 stars just for that reason alone!

She points to the visuals, particularly the babies and children and babbles at me in her gobbledy-gook language, and we have a great time just sitting, listening, singing, talking, and spending time together while praising God. Couldn't ask for a better moment in life! I find it helpful, particularly when she's too wound up and it's time to settle down for bed.

Now, while I love the visuals (simple, clean, fun) and the music (wonderful vocalist...very nice kid's choir and music, none of which gets on my nerves)...the video has little to offer of direct instructional value (ala Baby Einstein, or Baby Faith's God Made Me, etc).

However, as it shows children playing joyfully and matches that to great praise music aimed at the very young, I'm very pleased with the purchase, and hope the board books they offer are a preview of future DVDs in the works!!!

Real Women Have Curves - movie DVD cover picture
You KNOW these people...


Every once in a while, a movie offers a glimpse into a world that you never once before gave a second thought. But it does so with such loving detail and precise imagery that you feel you know these people. You've seen these people. These people exist. And you want to see more.It's a slice of life story, about a Hispanic teen and her family. Nothing big happens, but the moments depicted really add up...it may sound ridiculous, but the world you see here is as three-dimensional and detailed as anything in the Star Wars series.(I'm talking environment here, not acting...) And to some, just as alien.The acting is superb. Not a false note in the whole film. Sometimes I think the sign of a great movie is that you wouldn't mind seeing a sequel...just to see what happens next to these characters you've suddenly grown attached to.On the surface, it's a total "chick flick". But an accessible chick flick.It's a "Latin" movie, but it speaks to everyone.A great surprise.

Bend It Like Beckham (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
This movie is truly brilliant.


Unlike "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", whose main character isn't as half likable as any of the main characters in "Bend it..." And that's "Bend it Like Beckham"s strongest asset. It's the characters that one can relate to. You can cry with them, and you can certainly laugh with them. And even though the plot is formulaic, it's because of the characters, that the audience(including myself) is conned into thinking this is a truly special story (by the end, that's exactly what you'll be thinking). And that's a sign of great filmmaker, who believes in their work and loves their characters, which Gurinder Chandra obviously does.
It helps that the director, Chandra, was able to find a stellar cast. Parminder Nagra is perfect as the endearing Jess, and Kiera Knightley is wonderful as the somewhat naive, but truly caring Jules. Also, Juliet Stevenson nearly steals the show as Jules' hilarious, and slightly daft mother.
I think the movie relies on hopes and dreams of an individual as much as the importance of strong family ties. You may be laughing throughout the whole film, but when it's over, that's what sticks with you. That along with that big, fat smile on your face.

The Day of the Jackal - movie DVD cover picture
The Standard By Which Other Movies Are Judged


An intelligent, mature, thorough drama that asks the question: can an entire nation stop one man? It's a question that is increasingly relevent, and The Day of the Jackal is more modern in its way now than ever. But all that aside, it is a great film by its own merit, the best of its genre, and ultimately the film by which all others of its kind are judged. A gripping, brilliant classic that has gained with age.
