Kurosawa's Best - - A Samurai Western!


I taped this off of TV when Turner Classic Movies had their month dedicated to Akira Kurosawa. I sat down, started up the tape, and didn't move until the movie was over. Even though I am still exploring Kurosawa's film, I think this is one of Kurosawa's greatest films. It has wonderful, richly created characters (the best being, of course, the lead character). The story and direction brilliantly walk hand in hand. A nameless ronin (played by Toshiro Mifune)stumbles into a border town and finds two feuding families and, seeing an opportunity, hires himself out as a yojimbo (bodyguard) to BOTH sides. Kurosawa always said that he was influened by American westerns (and vice versa), but it is really something you have to see for yourself, when he combies samurai films and westerns -- no easy feat! If you've never laid eyes on any of Kurosawa's movies, what better film to start with than this one? Incidentally, this was remade into "A Fistful of Dollars" with Clint Eastwood. Speaking of that, am I the only person who thinks that Toshiro Mifune and Clint Eastwood look alike? I think it's in their piercing eyes.

Great Movie.....


Greenfingers is the story of Colin, a convict in the British prison system. Colin, who has been in prison for over ten years, is a model prisoner. When he is eligible for bail he is sent to a `work camp' style prison (Edgefield), where he is supposed to learn a trade.
Not caring about his fate, Colin isn't particularly choosy about which trade he learns and ends up in Maintenance. Eventually, inspired by his elderly roommate, Colin learns to garden. Through gardening, he finds a way to put the past behind him and heal himself and others by growing wonderful plants and contributing to the community. Inspired by Colin's success a new work furlow program is initiated. . Through the program Colin makes new friends, a new love interest, and helps the men learn new skills. When a valuable art artifact is stolen from the work site, Colin and the convicts are blamed. Can Colin overcome his trouble to prove that Gardening has been helpful in rehabilitating the inmates of Edgefield?
Although this movie was billed as a comedy, its not, really. I'd call it more of an `inspirational' movie of the sleepy `driving Miss Daisy' variety. Colin is a likeable character with a checkered past. The fulfillment he finds gardening is quite entertaining. The other convicts are well portrayed and believable. I recommend Greenfingers for those who are looking for an inspirational movie everyone will enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

I watched this movie more than 30 times, it's great!


I've watched this movie over and over because it's great. It's super funny and has a lot of real stuff like a Real Rocket Sled launch, Centrifuge, and Jet Packs. I'm the webmaster at Yellow Airplane and I know about these things. You will love this film so much that you will watch it time and time again. It's great and the kids will love it too.

These are three of the best "Muppet Show"s on DVD yet. The "extras" are not accessible via the main menu -- you must go into the individual episodes to find them, although there's not much there worth watching.

THe Greatest Movies of All Time


This is probably one of my favorite movies of all time this ranks in my top 3 of the 80s with the Goonies and Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It is a fantastic movie to watch and is just a classic. When someone I know said they had not seen any of my top three I practically blew up and told them to just get the hell out of the room until they saw the movies! It is a classic and will always be one of my favorite movies to watch!

I thought the movie was hilarious !!!


I liked the response of the children to their never around dad, who was a stranger to the younger children because he was on the road so much. Bob Hope is such a comedian- I have liked him since my childhood and since seeing this timely video.

A great non-SciFi movie


Yes, this movie is deliberately paced (aka sloooow), and there is no action in it to speak of. And it is not about some smart planet whatsoever. This is an existential flick, a meditation on loss and fear. Once you accept that premise, you'll love it.Plus, the music is absolutely mesmerizing.

Happy Together - movie DVD cover picture
Another Wong Kar-Wai masterpiece


Having seen all of Wong Kar-Wai's previous efforts, I have been waiting in anticipation for "Happy Together". And what a magnificent movie it was - both visually and emotionally. No one portrays loneliness, alienation and the pangs of love better than this director and his long-time cinematographer Christopher Doyle. From the opening scene of the blue-tinted Iguazu Falls to the final uproariously upbeat scene of a subway train zooming into its station to the strains of "Happy Together", there was never a dull moment; moments that range froms scenes of utter despair, to hysterical quarrels between gay lovers to humorously playful interludes. Scenes alternate between black-and-white and over-saturated color in tandem with the shifting emotions of sadness and happiness. It is a masterpiece of color, sound and emotions which only Wong Kar-Wai could have created.
