Dinosaur - movie DVD cover picture
Keeps my 4 yr old girl.......entertained....................


and she likes to watch it atleast once a day. I find not one thing wrong with this movie, I like it well myself. Maybe the reason the carnotaurs do not talk is because maybe Disney wanted the kids focus to remain on Aladar and his group of friends.(can you imagine what the carnotaurs would have to say)? My lil girl can tell you what dinosaur is what, and if she is happy with the flick, then so am I. All in all, a definite 5 stars. I recommend it!!!!

Jurassic Park & Lost World Collection (2-Disc Set) - Widescreen - movie DVD cover picture
Finally!


Finally, the Jurassic Park/Lost World series is going to be released on DVD. The movies are in my opinion, the best dinosaur movies that have ever been released. Contrary to the critics opinion on the Lost World, I thoroughly enjoyed it as much as I did in the first one. I'll be sure to have both in my collection upon their DVD release!

The love is physcis , the marriage : chemistry !


This acid and clever stement comes from Alejandro Dumas and in this case fits so well .
Funny , clever and exhilarating film . This movie deals around the marriage of a nonchalant sport writer and her talented and charming international reporter . And the sitautions are not so far from the modern times . Fundamental work in George Stevens filmography .
Hepburn , shinning as always and Tracy outstanding too .
A "must" see !

Bound - movie DVD cover picture
A brilliant film-noir thriller about love and trust.


Three years before Matrix, the Wachowski brothers showed their geniality by directing this movie. It's a breath-taking, beautiful story about two women, Corky and Vi who become lovers. They both want to change their lives and start all over. They have a brilliant plan... to steal two million dollars from Ceasar, a member of the mob and Vi's boyfriend. As expected, things don't go the way they wanted... This movie is a brilliant thriller with very intriguing plot. The chemistry on the screen between Vi and Corky is electric. This movie leaves you with the hyper girl power feeling, makes you happy for the rest of the week...

Crazy/ Beautiful - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best teen dramas ever made!


i was dragged to see this movie, however, i must admit that this movie was excellent. i would probably put it in my top 10 along with my others such as Traffic, Goodfellas and Forrest Gump. As you can see by my other Fav's, im into really dramatic; powerful movies, Crazy/Beautiful definetly has these quality's. the movie does a great job of showing two kinds of life styles, Jay Hernandez the mexican struggling, and Kirsten Dunst, the wealthy white girl taking it for granite, and showing how the two collide, this love story is not typical, its realistic and that is a quality that makes this movie so powerful. I highly recommend it.

American Gigolo - movie DVD cover picture
Cult Classic


Few movies define a generation or trend like "American Gigolo". Movies such as "Saturday Night Fever" and "Rocky" defined for the young male viewer a benchmark to aim for in one's coming of age. "Saturday Night Fever" somewhat laid out a sense of cool and "Rocky" a triumph for the underdog. What does "American Gigolo' provide? From the get go, the thundering Giorgio Moroder centered soundtrack set the stage for what was to be an not so ordinary film. The car, the clothes and the music (not to mention Gere, Hutton and the wicked supporting cast) make the movie. Gere and Hutton provide a tension in the film that is not given its due. The car, the clothes, the strut filled a void left by "Saturday Night Fever". The movie even asked a few deep questions here and there. I return to "American Gigolo" every now and then and it is a different experience everytime. It might not be "A Clockwork Orange" and it can stand accused for valorizing what can really be a seedy profession. Nonetheless, it is the stuff of Hollywood at its best for its time. Julia Roberts may have replaced Lauren Hutton as the Gere love interest but Richard Gere will forever be the "American Gigolo".

The Pride of the Yankees - movie DVD cover picture
From NY Immigrants' Child to American Legend


This was probably my introduction, and for millions of others, to the legend that is Lou Gehrig. And for so many years, I had Gehrig and Gary Cooper completely confused in my mind--they seemed inseparable. But there's good reason for it: the role of the Iron Horse seemed to be made for Cooper. Gehrig was a low-key, almost self-effacing athlete and person, which was just the type of character that Cooper built his career on. Their sizes were just about the same. Cooper nailed down Lou Gehrig's voice, especially for the famous "luckiest man" farewell speech. Hell, Gary Cooper LOOKS like Lou Gehrig! Maybe my confusion is justified, at least on this subject.
PRIDE OF THE YANKEES is the grand-daddy of all baseball movies. Cooper's performance, as I can't help but keep mentioning, is stellar. Teresa Wright as his wife helps keep the hankies moist but she is also very spunky and strong. Walter Brennan (who also played opposite Cooper in MEET JOHN DOE where John Doe is a semi-pro pitcher) is in a supporting role here but provides desperately needed comic relief.
And perhaps I'm wrong to categorize PRIDE OF THE YANKESS as merely a baseball film. It is about human potential, human frailty, and above all human strength during times of crisis. Lou Gehrig's tragedy occurred during a time of extreme crisis in America, and, I believe, his strong steady public appearances helped the nation through it. PRIDE OF THE YANKEES could easily have been named "Strength of America" in my mind. It's that important a film.

Give it a try!


Sometimes it takes a few viewings to get into a video in our house. I always preview the tapes before my 17 month old watches them, just to make sure they aren't too scary. I watched this one twice, I loved it so much! This tape is now played every day without fail, and we all love it. Don't be put off by the style of the songs. They aren't really modern sounding, but they are so catchy, that you can't help but love them. Remember that these tapes are for your child, but you have to watch them, too. Enjoy!!

Dead Again - movie DVD cover picture
Never a Dead Moment


Dead Again is a brilliant movie brought forth by Kenneth Branagh. This film is a murder mystery of the strongest content. It's not a typical murder mystery. This one takes us on a road of flashbacks and reincarnation. This film will keep you on edge as you watch the turmoil of Annie (Emma Thompson) an victim of traumatic amnesia and the private investigator(Kenneth Branagh). You'll also wonderful performances by Derek Jacobi, Andy Garcia, Campbell Scott, and Robin Williams to name a few. With Patrick Doyle's score intertwining throughout the film. This is a must see film for all not just mystery buffs. END

Sweet Smell of Success - movie DVD cover picture
A turning point film!


This monumental cult movie established a before and after in the genre of the Film Noir. The project is ambitious, the characters are so well depicted, the dramatic nucleus has maintained through all those years. Burt Lancaster made one of his five best achievements in his career: the other three to my mind would be: Elmer Gantry, Birdman of Alcatraz,The swimmer and Atlantic City.
In the other hand this colossal picture stopped the extended belief of the great audiences to consider a simple handsome face actor to Tony Curtis, who previously in The Defiant ones had proved his artistic skills.
Another interesting aspect of this pyramidal artwork resides in the fact to portrait the bleak side New York City with such intensity level that we had not seen it from the times of On the Waterfront. Two remarkable films would focus similar premises; Orson Welles' Mr Arkadin: Confidential Report and Martin Ritt's Edge of the city.
If you think it over you may link this evil character of Lancaster with Michael Douglas in Wall Street. This man embodied the greed, the febrile fight for reach the highest power spheres, without any ethic consideration and a single scruple particle.
This wholeness, and the multiple obtained readings from the deep insights of the human soul faced to the ominous presence of the Big Apple conform a true document, a must have for any serious hard collector of great movies of any age.
"The cat is in the bag; and the bag is in the river".
The masterpiece of Alexander MacEndrick!
