The Judy Garland Show, Vol. 01 (Shows 1 & 3) - movie DVD cover picture
Judy Garland Show Volume 1


Judy's star again, as always, shines bright in these two episodes (1&3) of her television show! Two extra treats of these episodes are Mickey Rooney and Liza Minnili, Judy Garland's daughter. With both you can clearly see Judy's very special bond to each of these individuals!
If you simply love Judy Garland, these are a must for any fan! Her shows are perhaps the best body of her work avalible!

Radiohead - Meeting People Is Easy - movie DVD cover picture
A Great Documentary About a Great Band


Due to the facts that this film is impossible to find for rent (at least where I live) and is never on t.v. and that I am a huge Radiohead fan I decided that the only way I would get to see this (and I had to see it) would be to buy it. It was worth every last cent.
If there is any modern band worth making a documentary about it is Radiohead. Their music is some of the most original and breathtaking music in the whole industry. In my opinion they are the best band that is still together at this time. After they released the classic album "O.k. Computer" their lives completely changed as they took on critical and commercial success combined with two years of touring and doing interviews. This film follows them around druing this two year period.
At the beginning of the tour they are bright eyed and ready to face the waiting world. Their first shows are amazing and Gee gets some excellant concert shots. They don't like the interviews but they do them with a smile on their faces. They seem to be having a good time. This is at the beginning. By the end they are an abssolute wreck. Thom Yorke seems constantly pissed off and the rest of the band arn't pleased either. Even their bassist Colin Greenwood, who seems to be the only one who dosn't mind the fame seems really tired of it all by the end. You can feel just how tired they all are. Tired of the crowds, tired of the interviews, tired of the shows, of each other and mainly of fame. It would be a hell of a thing trying to stay true to yourself and in touch with the world with that kind of emense fame.
The film itself is done in a kind of Radiohead style and even the score for the film was made by members of Radiohead. Gee is an excellant director and uses many differant lenses and filters to make many very interesting shots. The editing is superb and it jumps from black and white to some greenish shot to somthing else in the bat of an eye but all in good effect. Plus Gee knows when to stop doing this and gives us a break once in a while by showing us an entire number at a concert or a whole song. It is well paced and very well done.
So whether you are a Radiohead fan or not this is an excellant documentary that everyone should see. It can be taken as a film about Radiohead or as a study on the effects of fame on the human psyche. So if you are as big a fan as I am I suggest that you see this film anyway possible even if it means buying it before you've seen it.
Thanxs...

TRICK


A wonderful relief on the average gay themed movie. No one had to battle HIV, bashing or political oppression.
"Trick" offers a very realistic view of meeting Mr. Right Now and no place to go. Christen Campbell and JT Pitok are great together and Tori Spelling is fantastic as the ever present fag hag.
The comedy is subtle, but strong, leaving one laughing. Combine this with a killer soundtrack and you have a great movie.

The Final Countdown (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A Navy man's opinion


The Final Countdown is one, if not the best movie of its type that I have ever seen. As a former U.S. Navy sailor I was impressed by the realism. Most of the action takes place aboard an aircraft carrier and having been at sea on an aircraft carrier I can tell you that not only are the sights right, but the sound are right, what you hear in the background is very real. The flying scenes were so good as to be hard to believe, and the whole concept of the story grabs the immagination like nothing else can. The concept of a fully armed modern aircraft carrier dropping out of time into the ocean just off of Hawaii, just before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is mind boggling and when you throw in questions like; "can we attack first, because we know from history (that will be changed) that the Japanese are going to attack?" "and if we do, will we have started the war?" "Who has authority over this future aircraft carrier, is it the 1941 president?" Immagine an arial dogfight between an Japanese Zero and a Tomcat... you get see one.
Everything about The Final Countdown is well done and above and beyond expectations. If you enjoy military hardware movies, enjoy a touch of science fiction, and like watching fighter jets, and you plain just like a good story, this movie is a must see. If you have seen it, as I have, many times, you will want it for your library.

The Mothman Prophecies - movie DVD cover picture
For once, a good mainstream movie...


Or should I say, the second good mainstream movie I have seen lately.
The Mothman Prophecies is a metaphysical thriller, a psychological rollercoaster that will keep you on the edge of your seat (and sanity for that matter). The film is done with a lot of grainy footage and very independent-film type styles and dialogue.
Definitely a psychothriller, this film begs many questions about the nature of phenomenon. It also displays the psychological effects of aknowledging evil.
I went and saw this movie with my parents (I am 20 years old) and they both liked it as well. So I am convinced that both the weekly movie-goer and the picky critic will like this movie equally.

A beautiful film --


I'll keep it short, because the other 5-* reviews covered the ground.... This movie is close to magical, in the way it covers the ground in that small town... From the army base and its sergeants dealing with the "new" army, to the schools (diversity), to politics (do we need a new jail), to ugly past (a murderous old-time sheriff), this film unfolds personalities and issues like no other film. Sayles is a master story-teller, and Lonestar is a great story with depth. Buy it, watch it, study it!

The Best Massage Video Combo I've Seen


I was very pleased with the quality and completeness of the massage combo. As a nursing student and a former massage therapist I felt this covered the subject matter very well and was conveniently organized into both basic and professional sections (which helped me to categorize). The price is also really good for the amount of information there. I would recommend this to everyone.

Storm of the Century - movie DVD cover picture
Chiller thriller


Horror is far from my favorite genre, but Storm of the Century kept me glued to the screen from start to finish. The conflict between Linoge and Anderson is tight and immediate, never weakening in its intensity. Linoge is pure evil in a menacing but somehow understandable way. The director manages to walk the fine line between frightening realism and senseless gore. This is a tautly restrained yet very effective Stephen King, who sometimes goes over the top. Knowing King, it is possible to predict who wins in the end, but there is a nasty surprise at the conclusion. Terrific movie.

Phone Booth - movie DVD cover picture
The art of listening.


Before I watched this film, I read several reviews on it. Most of them was negative. Than I checked out the director: Joel Schumacher. I found few mediocre films by him but at the same time I found few of my favorites: The Lost Boys (1987), Flatliners (1990), Falling Down (1993), The Client (1994). Based on this research I had no choice but to watch this film. Main character Stu (Colin Farrell at his best performance) is one of this fake New Yorkers: some publicist, dressed in a fake coat of bogus fame and unexciting BIG contacts. He stops by at the phone booth to make his regular call to another women, the one which doesn't know that he is married... As soon as he hangs up? A phone call... A phone call for him... A phone call by a sniper. He has to play by the sniper's rules, or someone will die. A thriller? An action? A psychological drama? I would say all of it at the same time... but much more. Did I want to know what will happen next? Yes! Did this film make me think? Yes!
From my point of view, this film mostly about art of listening. We often prejudge situations and people. But we forget to listen, to understand and hear the meaning of simple clues which might save our own life. And Forest Whitaker as Captain Ramey did this part very well.On the other hand it gives us a slight idea how one second can change our life forever. And it does every single day.The ending made me disappointed but I can't give this film less than A- grade. I've seen better, but not as many as you might think. Reviewed by "russianwriter.net"
