King is King


This is the best complete season of the Four released so far. But makes it great are all the extras through out the DVD. Once you start viewing the other complete seasons it is clear what they are lacking. However, episode wise, this season is just as great as every other season. But be warned, if you buy one, chances are you'll buy them all.

Willow (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The most amazing movie


Willow is without a doubt, one of the best movies I have ever seen, but I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed when it ended. I wanted more, so when my husband brought me home a book claiming it was the sequel of Willow, I was thrilled. He was right!!!! It had all my favorite characters and more, and I was especially thrilled to learn that it followed the princess to adulthood. If you are a die-hard Willow fan, and you still want more after the movie, I recommend the following trilogy:Author: George Lucas Chris ClaremontBook !: Shadow MoonBook 2: Shadow DawnBook 3: Shadow StarShadow Star is not released yet so don't read the books too fast like I did, I'm still waiting. Happy reading from a die-hard fan!!!!

Baretta - Season One - movie DVD cover picture
High Quality Television


BARETTA occupies one of a trilogy of slots for the most enjoyable television dramas of the 1970's (the other two being KUNG FU and KOJAK, with STARKSY AND HUTCH a close runner up). It just doesn't get much better than this. The funky dialogue is what really shines here -that, and the quirky sideshow characters like Rooster (Baretta's mack daddy man on the street) and The Soup Lady (this half-crazy old woman who lives downstairs and is forever fixing Tony and Billy soup). BARETTA epitomizes the tough streetwise guy with the rapid fire tongue and out there sayings that has seen a resurgence most recently in the scripts of Quentin Tarantino. What really struck me was the depth of characterization which I never noticed watching this as a kid. There is a backstory which subtley weaves its way into each episode. From various hints, including the sea paraphenalia on the walls of his apartment and the presence of his lovable cockatoo Fred, we learn Tony was once a merchant marine, and Bill (the old guy - am I getting his name wrong?)was friends with his father. And there is consistency to this universe - the fiance Tony avenges in the pilot episode still remains a ghostly presence in a smiling portrait on a table in his place. There's a host of great episodes here - my particular favorites being He'll Never See The Light Of Day, The Copelli Oath, Walk Like You Talk, and so many others. The weakest entry is the one where Tony has to rub elbows with high society (I think its the last one). He's so out of place and uncomfortable its laughable. Some of Tony's disguises are a little weird, too so be warned. But when he's on the streets in his element, Robert Blake is gold in this show. And check out the cameos from some great 70's personas! The great Moses `Mr. Big' Gunn! Burt `Yo Paulie' Young! The mother from Poltergeist (she's in the first scene of The Mansion)! Good action, awesome dialogue, and some surprisingly hard hitting themes. So cook up some chili dogs and chicken soup, crack open a bottle of that stuff not meant for drinking, and let de good times roll. Great Tv. BRING ON SEASON TWO AND THREE, PARTNER!

Star Wars, Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The circle has been completed.... *Spoilers possibly*


I have been a loyal fan of Star Wars for a long time. Everyone complained about Episode 1, namely because of Jar Jar. Episode 2 was a little more action packed, and we got to see how Anakin began his gradual slope towards evil and how he fell in love with Amidala.
Then comes Revenge of the Sith.
From the very beginning, you get all the action in Star Wars you want, and then some. I noticed that only three lines seemed cheesy and sort of out of place.
Things got real dark when Order 66 was issued. Some people complained that the Jedi were killed off too easily. (Read the book to open your eyes, foolish ones.)
The movie boasts some of the best lightsaber fights ever seen in Star Wars. Grevious was sort of a disappointment, seeing as how the general audience kept asking (Duuuh, why is he coughing?)
Anyway, the fight between Anakin Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi was the hallmark of any lightsaber fight, ever.
Then came the Immolation Scene, which was one of the most painful scenes in the entire movie.
Then came the infamous "Noooooo!" line that everyone thought was awful. In my opinion, it was only slightly.
Then came the end, the sunset on Tatooine. I swear, if you love Star Wars, you won't leave the theater with a dry eye.

A Fun Guilty PLeasure


I happened upon 2LDK completely by accident, and was instantly intrigued. This is an odd psychological film, starting innocently enough. But by the end, the two roommate-actresses are literally insane, trying to kill each other. This is a rather over-the-top film, both in terms of the attempted death methods as well as the very short time frame - the entire film takes place in one evening. By the end, the confrontation is somewhat reminiscent of the opening battle of Kill Bill I. This film is clearly NOT for minors, and is quite enjoyable for its odd zaniness.

a great satire of the 60's


I think you had to live in the 60's with the Avengers, Wild Wild West, The Man from UNCLE, etc. to really appreciate how gullible and innocent we were growing up. This is a hilarious spoof on all those shows with heroes in easily escapable situations involving an elaborate death which had us tuning in every week on the edge of our seats. I think it's a classic!

One of the greatest sci-fi political statements movie EVER!


Michael Rennie and cast do a great job of early science fiction. This is a statement against war and against agression between nations. The early electronic music is great. This work is in b&w but approaches the greatness of Forbidden Planet.

Wicked!


I love this movie.The actors are as wonderful as the characters they portray. Even Mimi Rogers - whom I dislike - is quite funny. The dialogue is sharp and clever, and the effects are nicely icky.The third act does suffer when the subtext is dropped in favor of conventional horror thrills, but the ending is satisfyingly grim.Especially recommended to Buffy fans.Bring on those sequels...

One of the best


Ryan O'Neal is perfectly cast as a perennially confused scientist with little in the way of social skills. Barbra Streisand is effortless as an oblivious but insightful troublemaker. Madeline Kahn is a natural as a naggy fiance. A witty script and great acting make this one of the best comedies of all time. Some comedies you rent and take back. This one you should own.
