Just be patient! Release date in 2010 can't be true


To my knowledge this dvd won't be from her show in Las Vegas but indeed the one at the Kodak Theater. I just quit working for Sony Music and have talked about it with a colleague of mine. They have not decided yet if it will be released at all. So 2010 written by amazon is not right. It won't take them about 7 years to decide.If it will be produced then I can garanty it is worth buying it 'cause I saw it on TV.

The Day the Earth Stood Still - movie DVD cover picture
Undeniably A Classic. And Where Are The Suits?


The Day the Earth Stood Still is one of the greatest movies of the Communist scare era. It is tense, gripping and exciting in the opening confrontation and is a study of emotional reaction to the unknown. All of the characters are typical postWorld War 2 Americans, simplistic in lifestyle and philosophy and are brought to life with an amazing list of stock character actors in all of the minor roles. Patricia Neal as a co-star is excellent,and though somewhat older,her beauty is still present, only surpassed perhaps when she co-starred in "The Fountainhead" with Gary Cooper. From "Aunt Bee" as a boarder in the house who would soon appear on "Andy Griffith" as the maid,to Sam Jaffe as an "Einstein" type professor, this movie captures all of the flavor of the time period and remains somewhat tense and scary to this day due to the unforgettable musical score of Bernard Hermann and the presence of a gigantic robot known as "Gort". The music, produced by a type of "harp" is perhaps the strangest ever to associate with a film save for "Forbidden Planet". If the film has any weakness, it is that the portrayal of "common folk" can be equated as "dumb", especially when Klaatu is interviewed by an unsuspecting news reporter hawking the crowd for "fear" comments.(Another film that displayed common folk as having low IQ's was "War of the Worlds" with Gene Barry) Still, the film is a science fiction icon, a classic in every sense of the word, and this DVD is a superior product. The quote for the title of this review is from the movie. When the film shows the world is stopped and travels from country to country, in England,a british working class man makes that classic comment! The film also embraces a view of an all knowing creator, something lacking in today's films. The film may be too intense for young children, as the presence of Gort and the dark imagery of black and white filming combined with chilling music can cause nightmares, so use parental discretion.

Best Example of History on Film!


I have seen this movie over 100 times, and I'm still moved by it. Though the movie has some historical inaccuracies, no film out there comes as close to portraying true history as this one, especially about the Civil War. For the most part, the acting was superb, especially by Jeff Daniels. The portion of the film when Armistead speaks about his past friendship with Hancock is the most finely acted scene of any movie I have ever seen. No prequal or sequal can add to this movie, especially if they're produced and acted as poorly as Gods and Generals.

Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein


Without a doubt Abbott & Costello's best movie. This is a classic. In my view, their only movie that ranks near the classics of the Marx Brothers, Buster Keaton and Laurel & Hardy. This is a horror movie and a comedy in one. Everyone is after Lou's brain. Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney and Glenn Strange are in this.

Double Dare - movie DVD cover picture
This ain't no kids tv show!!


I got a chance to see this movie in San Francisco a few weeks back and I absolutely fell in love with it. The story revolves two stuntwomen, one starting her career and one on the tail end of her career. You see the ups and downs of trying to get a career started and the ups and downs of trying to get one going. It's hard enough being a stuntperson at all, let alone being a woman in a job domminated by men.

The cameos in the movie by the likes of Steven Spielberg, and Quentin Tarantino are just added bonuses to make an already great movie just that much more interesting.

This is a great look at what goes on behind the scenes in a way you've probably never seen before. If you're a fan of action films, of filmmaking, or just of women who kick ass then pre-order this baby now. I just did.

Great Christmas movie!


This was a great Christmas movie from the man that brought us Back to the Future,Who Framed Roger Rabit and Forrest Gump-Robert Zemeckis.I went to see this movie yesterday and I thought the movie was great!Right from the start the movie grabs you and dont let go until the end.I'm not sure how well this movie will do?As the theater I went to yesterday was not very packed,only 3 adults and 1 child was at my showing,not a very good start for opening day! Perhaps people are waiting for the weekend.Any way I loved this movie and cant wait to buy on DVD,this will be a Christmas movie that like A Christmas Story will never die! Tom Hanks and Robert Zemeckis make a great team!

Superwondertacular


Are you tired of all the "Sleepless in Seattles", and all the lame teenie bopper romantic comedies out there that have as much depth as a piece of cardboard. Then check the Graduate out. It's offbeat, out there and hilarious. It's quite a genre buster, comedy, tragedy, revolution, tons of stuff. Every thing just ties into everything else. It breaks bunches of taboos, especially considering that it was made in the 1960's, right before the anti-war movement, and counter-culture explosion. Ben Braddock is just out of college, an award winning scholar and a track star. But underneath all this Ben is disturbed, all his life he's know what to do, but now he's caught at a crossroads in his life, just what is he going to do. Though his future is also offered to him ("One word....Plastics"), he wants it to be something else.....different. Plenty of things are different about this movie, with great acting and a kickin' soundtrack. You owe it to yourself to at least see it once

Smokey Robinson - The Greatest Hits Live - movie DVD cover picture
More than you know......


And more than can be said about this man... THE MAN! Smokey may have aged as all of us who love him and his music, but he still can "wow" any of us. His voice, after he woke up (smile), cleared up and held up throughout the entire concert. His voice was simply unbelievable and powerful on the ballards. "More Than You Know" and "I Love Your Face" were so powerful and romantic that they can be used as "mood music". Smokey was and is a premier entertainer who has stood the test of time. I have had this video for over a year and I still love it! It is so good to have great music performed by a great entertainer! As a life long lover of this man and his music, I recommend this video/dvd for any of us who still love music we can understand and that makes sense and fosters love and romance. I only regret that there are not more like this one by this man. I had the opportunity to see him perform live again recently... in Memphis and in Philadelphia, MS... The Man Has Got It Going On!

A Reason to Believe


If you ever lose faith in the transition from story to stage to screen, let it be restored in this marvel of production Victor/Victoria! This film is nothing short of genius. I viewed this masterpiece six times at full box-office price, as a young adult. From those first few inspiring opening notes from an unprecedented score by the legendary Henry Macini, the shape of genius surrounds you. The performances by Andrews, Preston, Warren, Garner, bring together artistry and skill not to be found in any other medium of our time. The direction, the cinematography, the set design, the editing, the lighting, the musical score, the screenplay. . .there is nothing, absolutely nothing you will NOT like about this film, other than YOU were not in it! Make it a permanment part of your collection; refer to it religiously.
