Hitch (Fullscreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
KEVIN JAMES & WILL SMITH MAKE THE PERFECT ON SCREEN TEAM.


First off I have to admit that the big reason I went to see this film was because Of "KING OF QUEENS" Kevin James, but it also helped that the very talented Will Smith is in this to. Director Andy Tennant did an excellent job with this film. Various types of humor are incorperated into the film as well as the romantic factor for all you date movie people. This would best be described as a Comedy with romantic elements, not a romantic comedy.

We will start with the star Will Smith, I for one think it is great to see him in something else other then a big budget sci-fi flick again. And he did a excellent job in his first role in this type of film, his preformance is amazing. His charisma and screen precence make his character very belivable. Of course that changes after meeting his love, and he becomes a clumsy idiot, and he plays it greatly.

That brings some one that was miscast, EVA MENDAS. I like her, infact I love her but she just didn't work in this role. She gave what she could, but the preformance wasn't belivable. That's all I can say about that, nothing more nothing less.

Now comes the highlight of the film, the one and only KEVIN JAMES. What can one say about this brilliant preformance. Why dosn't this man make some more movies in his off time from his excellent show "KING OF QUEENS". Kevin's preformance is so good, so brilliant, so belivable it is nothing short of a classic preformance. His nice guy shy role fits him perfectlly, so much so that when he isn't on screen you are left waiting and wanting more of Mr James. Most of the films best moments happen because of him, the ending is a perfect example, or his early dance scene with Will.

Which brings me to the on screen chemestry of these two brilliant preformers. When both are on screen you will laugh with out a doubt. After the film is over you might be left wanting to see more of them together again on the big screen. The chemestry between the two is amazing, no team I can remember has done so well together since Samual & John on "PULP FICTION". I'am sure there have been other great teams like Farley & spade in "TOMMEY BOY", but none have done so in the recent onslaught of terrible movies to come out lately.

Thankfully this film is a gem in the film industry, and I can't wait to own it on dvd when it is released.

One of the best movies in existence!


This is a truly touching movie. All of the actors did brilliantly. Be sure to have a box of tissues available for the ending, because it is definitely crying material. I would recommend this to anyone! It is a fabulously done story. the group of women share a unique bond, and the little stories are hilarious. Julia Roberts plays a diabetic young woman and Sally Feild is her mother. the story begins on Roberts' wedding day on continues to describe the birth of her son and the terrible tragedy that befalls Roberts, Field, and their group of closely knit friends played by Olympia Dukakis, Shirley McLain, Dolly Parton, and Daryl Hannah. The sadness and humor of the movie are entertwined in a very realistic way. This is an extremely worthwhile movie.

Woman in the Dunes - movie DVD cover picture
Unforgetable


In its basic form, this movie focuses on the unimportance of culture. There is a village so encroached by sanddunes that each house is located at the bottom of a 30 feet deep pit of sand with steep walls. As the ever creeping sand falls into the pits, villager spend more and more time shoveling this sand out or else have there homes buried in it. Into this strange world wanders a man with no life. His soul is so empty that his only sustenance is his wild fantasy of discovering a new species of beetle and thereby become fames. The villagers play matchmaker and put him in a pit with a beatiful but lonely woman who has lost both husband and son to the sand some years back. At first, the man resents his entrapment and tries to escape but gradually he becomes fond of the woman possibly even to love her. when a chance to escape finally appears, he choses to stay with the woman in the pit rather than go back to a numbing life in Tokyo.
In real life, there are people whos life are affected by sanddunes. Although their homes are kept above the dunes, the wells that provide water cannot be raised so they have to keep digging out the sand and build walls around the well to try to stop the moving dunes from covering their life giving water. They wage a relentless war agains the sand - Not such a fantasy after all. I highly recomend this DVD to everyone.

You've gotta be from the right place to enjoy this one.


This movie was hilarious from start to finish. I was born and reared in the South and without thinking understood the over-the-top way all the chararcters and dialogue were presented in this film. I currently live in Kansas City and when I was at the movies it was painfully obvious that my friends from the South and I were the only ones who found anything in the movie even remotely humorous. The film plays off stereotypes that everyone in the theater obviously believed to be true and found nothing funny about them.

Finger-nail biter


I'm always amazes at J. K. Rowling's imagination. She is a superior story teller.I was on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. I'm 72 years old and I can't think of any story that has fascinated me the way the Harry Potter Adventure Series does. I hope I live long enought to be able to read the last or the rest of her books.

this movie is too goof if you havent seen it and are intersted in the genre definetly treat yourself! the book wiseguys is what the movie was based on, if you havent read the book it is the perfect compliment to the die hard fans of this movie! plot twists and stuff you didnt see in the movie. the movie couldnt be called wiseguys however because ther was already a cheesy 80's mafioso comedy with the same title (danny devito- joe piscapo)BOTTOM LINE-- IF YOU LIKED THE MOVIE READ THE BOOK!

The Matrix Reloaded (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Ahead of its time


This is an excellent movie. The Matrix totally goes against the established norms of film making in script and special effects. This is an intellectual movie with a true story. Part 3 is going to be fabulous and movies to come will try to out do what has been done in the Matrix series, but ultimate fail. Because the Matrix has set the benchmark from which over movies of this type witll be judged against. Go check it out twice. Make sure you sit through the credits to catch a sneak peak at Matrix Reveloutions. And then when it comes out on DVD, make sure you buy your copy of the DVD. And pick up Enter The Matrix for PS2, PC, or X-Box because it tells you about the story within the background of the Matrix Reloaded.

GREAT SHOW, KEEP 'EM COMING


4th season is just as good and as exciting as the previous seasons.
The Lana and Clark thing keeps you hoping that they may get together again. Chloe is very sweet and I'm starting to warm up to the modern Lois Lane a little, just a little. Lex luther and his father is very interesting pair of villians. I also love the soundtrack, great music! I think that the music is one of the reason that make this show so much better than the other shows on TV today. I can't wait to watch the 5th season airing in September. I also adore the entire cast in this show. John Schneider and Annette O'tool are perfect as Clark Kent's parents. WOW, great show, keep 'em coming...

I've watched this movie many times after a friend turned me on to it. A wonderful sleeper. The mystery surrounding the thought extinct Cheyenne tribe members is found through nature's portals of the past. Moving, beautiful, thought provoking. Worth watching.
