Hard Boiled - Criterion Collection - movie DVD cover picture
John Woo's best work


"Hard Boiled" is definitely within the top twenty Hong Kong movies.
Chow Yun-Fat ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "Once A Thief", "A Better Tomorrow") and Tony Leung pair up in "Hard Boiled" to stun the audience with a film, that in every aspect defines perfection. With creativity and original scenes, it is surprising to know that John Woo directed "Mission: Impossible 2", for "Hard Boiled" far exceeds "M:I2" in every facet.
With creative technology, very effective dialogue, unpredictable occurences, it is all topped off with Tony Leung's best performance, and one of Chow Yun-Fat's best as well. Special effects, stunning acting, and themes even manage to give the "bad guys" perspective without being bias. -Priscilla

Training Day


This movie was the training ground for Denzel Washington's "Training Day". He breaks away from "Pelican Brief" (calm, cool, collected but fast acting) and bares his emotional side -- to great effect. Gene Hackman does equally well, but that can be expected from an excellent seasoned professional. The suspense turns on a dime many times, making for a combination of "Hunt for Red October" and "Top Gun". The transfer to DVD is excellent.

Man, THIS is a TV show


Well, this TV shows get Golden Globe years after years. Let's not doubt about the quality of this spin-off. I have to tape this shows on VCR in Europe as they're too late to be watched. Great pleasure having them on discs now thought the French Audio channel is missed.

I just purchased the 3-DVD set, and we watched the first video from it tonight, "Classical Baby... Music." IT WAS FABULOUS! Baby Einstein is nice, but has a little too much of the same thing over and over again in many of their videos (which I think we are all finally beginning to tire of somewhat). My 21-month old son LOVED the cute, but not over stimulating animated baby and animals in Classical Baby, along with truly enjoying the beautiful music. He moved his head to the beat of the music, and he applauded with the animal audience and said "Hooray!" at the end of each song. :) This is definitely going to be a long-time favorite, and we can't wait to watch the other videos in the set. Buy it and you will surely enjoy it as a family too! The more you enrich your little ones life with music, the more you will see them learn many wonderful things.

I couldn't watch it the whole way through...


When I first started watching this movie, it interested me alot, but the more I watched it, the more and more disturbed I was, almost to the point of being horrified. I couldn't watch it the whole way thru the first time,from the fear of having nightmares!The fact that this movie has the ability to effect an individual to that point is astonishing. I think that if you have the stomach for it, it is an eye opening, gut-wrenching movie about drug addictions, and the terrible effects they can have.

HIS MASTERPIECE


Finally, FEMALE TROUBLE's coming out on video! Say what you like about JOHN WATER's - for those of us who "get it" this is his best film. From the wonderful scene with Dawn and her parents on Christmas morning to the shocking finale, WATER's never lets up. This is one funny movie full of wonderfully bad performances and some of the most quotable dialogue you will ever hear. Mink Stole, you deserve a special Oscar for all the work you have done.

Judas Priest - Live in London - movie DVD cover picture
A great concert from the best band in the world


First off, I've been a fan for over 20 years and have seen them 16 times and recently met the band after a show, which was VERY cool!!( thanks for the autographs guys!!!!) Nobody, I mean, nobody, can put on a metal show like these guys can. So many new bands owe alot to this band for paving the way for metal. This concert has great 5.1 audio and the color is superb. Ripper Owens is more than capable of belting out the Priest classics. The guitar work is incredible as usual for these legendary guitarist!! The 12 minutes of behind the scenes is a nice touch.... Funny too.The soundcheck is excellent. Desert Plains sounds perfect along with the other few songs they do in that section. I would recommend this DVD to everybody that likes a good concert DVD and it's a no-brainer for any Priest fan.

I love Transformers season 2 part 2!!!


I Love Transformers Season 2 partv 2!!! This is the second half on the Transformers cartoon' second season. Many of the post-movie characters are still here like Optimus Prime, Megatron, Ironhide, Starscream,Prowl, Brawn, and Ratchet. I like this season because it's not the post-movie episodes after the movie. The episodes before the movie have good animation and story telling. (...) the episodes I like in this season are The Golden Laggon, The Secret of Omega Supreme, Kremseek!, Triple Takeover, Prime Target, The Search for Alpha Trion, The Girl Who Loved Powerglide, The Key to Vector Sigma parts 1 & 2,War Dawn, Cosmic Rust, Starscream's Brigade, Revenge of Bruitus, and Masquarade. Buy it! Highest Possible Recommendation!
