LFN Jonesin'


La Femme Nikita is one of the most creative and innovative TV shows ever, and it deserves the DVD format. The story is intriguing, the characters complex, and the atmosphere and music engrossing. The show's fans, both current and future, should be able to benefit from a DVD collection of all this show's episodes.

Crime Story - movie DVD cover picture
A serious, action packed no nonsense film


Crime Story is in stark contrast from many of his other films which often focuses on comic relief and non-stop action at the expense of character development and a solid story line.
Crime Story is does not contain the comic interludes that have become a trademark of his films. This action packed film has a serious and at times dramatic tone to it. Crime Story is very well written and produced film that shows a diversity in Jackie Chan's repertoire never seen before. This is one of Jackie's top films to date.
- a must see

Love! Valour! Compassion! - movie DVD cover picture
Not Your Usual


I came upon the movie by accident and though my finger hovered over the channel changer I found myself increasingly caught up with the characters and their lives. I laughed and cried and thought it was a work of art. At first when I realized it was a movie about gay men I thought, "Oh no not another movie about AIDS",and indeed Aids was there but it only really hovered in the background for most of the film. The characters were quite believable and I laughed and cried and fell in love with this brave and intelligent film. The movie which comes to mind when I try to find a comparrison is, "Smoke signals" which is not about gays or aids or anything but life love and relationships and co-incidentally American Indians. I will buy this movie so I can see it again and I recommend it to anyone with a heart.

My Favorite Brunette - movie DVD cover picture
Classic Bob Hope


This has got be my favorite Hope movie. The lines are great and Bob is very funny. If you have never seen a hope movie before start with this classic. My favorite blonde is fabulous too. But don't miss the lines in this one, or Bob's expressions. I have seen this so many times I can quote it by heart. This is definately a movie you want to own. He is not crude in the My Favorite series (3 in all), like he is in the road pictures. Good wholesome humor!!

Generator Gawl - Human Heart Metal Soul (Vol. 1) - movie DVD cover picture
Interesting and unique story


When I first saw Generator Gawl, it looked a bit stupid. But you actually get to watching it, its pretty interesting, with a cool animation style. Generator gawl is pretty good, considering the fact that it isn't a well known anime in the US.

The Best Teen Movie Of the 1990s!


This movie is absolutely spectacular. It's the kind of movie that contains every emotion imaginable, so if you're happy, sad, in love, angry or just plain crazy you can pop it in your VCR and enjoy. The acting is great, the music is classic and the plot is so much fun! It was the starting point for many actors/actresses such as Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger, Robin Tunney and Ethan Embry. I can't recommend it enough!

Pearl Harbor DVD Gift Set (Feature Film/ Beyond The Movie) - movie DVD cover picture
Great, great movie!!


It is no "From Here to Eternity", and the love story is milk toasted and pretty predictable. There are no sexy beach scenes(ala Kerr-Lancaster) although one on a parachute(in a hangar on the ground) is somewhat creative as love scenes go. There is virtually little chemistry between Ben Affleck and Kate Beckingdale, but that is probably because Affleck's character woodenly states he is saving himself and her from an experience they may later regret. The chemistry does begin though with the same leading lady and a second flyer who happens to be the Affleck character's best friend.
The bombing of the battleships scenes are excellent. This was deadly warfare and America was a sitting duck not so unlike 9/11/01-note this last comment was inserted later by this reviewer.) The movies does capture the elements of shock, chaos, and horror which must have been Pearl on December 7, 1941.

tree of might review


I though this was an excellent movie, it has strange twists that stray away from the common anime/dbz movies, there is less action and more story it seems. the fights are suprisingly short but good, and the story line is commendable. if you like movies that differ from the norm, then you will love TREE OF MIGHT

Kuffs is a cool and Unedited Universal Studios DVD to own!


I am a big fan of Christian Slater's movies. This Kuffs DVD is Unedited. In the movie (32 minutes and 55 seconds), there is a scene where Kuff's partner is cursing. All the cursing in the scene (except the last two words) are edited with annoying loud beeps. After careful research, I found out that the beeps are supposed to be funny. However, the real purpose of the beeps was to avoid a R rating. I hopes this review helps other people who might think that this DVD is Edited. Kuffs is a cool and Unedited Universal Studios DVD to own!

Jackie Robinson DVD Breaks the COLOR Barrier!


What an inspirational movie! Jackie Robinson stars as himself in this entertaining sports and family classic. It chronicles his life, from youth, through his college career at UCLA, to his rise to legend with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Jackie triumphs over racial injustices and emerges as nothing less than one of America's true heroes.
