King Creole is a Royal Treat

This is absolutely the best movie ever done by Elvis. After watching this film, you will realize the amount of talent that was wasted on such cookie cutter films as Clambake, Girls, Girls, Girls, Kid Gallahad, etc. Elvis demonstrates his theatrical prowess as a troubled youngster who gets caught up in the world of crime as a means to pull his family out of poverty. Walter Matthau gives an outstanding performance as a mob boss, quite an unusual role for Matthau, but he really pulls it off. When Matthau was asked about Elvis' performance in King Creole, he said, "He was an instinctive actor...he was intelligent enough to understand what a character was and how to play the character simply by being himself." It's also interesting to note that Carolyn Jones, Morticia Adams from the TV show the Adams family, plays a dark seductress caught up in Matthau's world of crime in the Big Easy. The soundtrack and great perfomance by Presley make this his best film hands down.

The Mothman Prophecies - movie DVD cover picture
Fun, spooky, trippy ride

Based on actual events that happened in the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, this is the story of the unusual "mothman". And the creepy stories that go along with it. Gere's character's wife dies, but before she dies she sees this strange figure, draws pictures, and he just plays it off as angels. Two years fast forward and Gere finds himself in Point Pleasant and strange things begin to drag him into a mystery he can't seem to deny he has something to do with that have brought him there....then the pictures, the same his wife drew show up again, the same the townspeople have drawn. With the help of the local police office, Linney, there is much to be discovered and uncovered....all with much creepiness and oddity. The movie is shot backwards, forwards, upsidedown, and inside out at times which lends itself to the feeling of what is what and what is going on. There are brief, almost indistinguishable flashes of shots that are just plain trippy and spooky, but fun and scary all at once. And to know this was all actually based on real experiences is the best trip of all. Enjoy and hope the "mothman" doesn't show up at your door!

Requiem for a dream directors cut

I saw this film and I said WOW WOW WOW. This is a movie that should be seen by every child that thinks drugs are cool, and by every person that thinks that drugs are the answer for weight loss. It is a REAL account of what happens not a hollywood happy movie. I was blown away at the performances of everyone in this movie Jared Leto's performance was so beautiful and heart breaking . Ellen Burstyn was robbed at the awards (sorry Julia) but this was a true masterpiece. I can truly say that her performance and this movie changed my thoughts and I will never be the same. This movie is not pretty ...this movie is REAL. This movie is a must see.

I haven't seen a movie as funny as this for many years.First , I rented it,but when I saw it I just fell in love with it.It came to me so great that I watched seven times over and over again.Then of course I bought it. Cusak was so intimate and Crystal was ,I think, playing his best acting ever-even better than analyze this-.You better not miss this one.

Desperately underapprciated

Genndy Tartakovsky has outdone himself- and much to the dismay of the few of us who see the brilliance- seems to be far ahead of his time. The combination of innovative animation, demiurgic world-beat soundtrack, and poigniant story lines leave this creation head and shoulders beyond what any series creator, animated or live-action, could hope to purvey.

Season one is fantastic and I am patiently awaiting its successor.

Spectacular tribute!

This is of a tribute to Jackie Gleason more than anything else. Although much of the disc focuses on the the Honeymooners, and some rarely seen gems, you also get some insight into some of Mr. Gleason's other great characters.The Ralph Kramden character was simple, yet brilliant. Gleason incorporated much of his own self into the loud mouthed,but sensitive Ralph. After watching this, it feels like you've watched something very, very special, and it left me smiling for hours.

Lucky there's a Family Guy!!

I never watched this show before a friend of mine mentioned it. I've watched this entire box set now and I'm completely hooked. This is one of the best animated shows, it's hilarious. My favorite character is Peter, he's made me laugh more times than I can count..but all the other characters are wonderful as well. I hope they bring this show back, it's too good to keep off television!! Episodes not to miss: Dammit, Janet and He's Too Sexy For His Fat
