Life and the power of human perseverance........


Ted Demme has done a brilliant job of depicting the power of hope and persistence under terrible circumstances. And he has done it by using one of the most powerful defense mechanisms human beings possess, HUMOR. In a way "Life" may be viewed as a methaphor for the struggles of everyday people and particularly African-Americans who in the face of historic injustice and oppression have managed to survive and flourish.

Shirley Bassey - Divas Are Forever - movie DVD cover picture
SHE IS INDEED "THE BEST OF THE BEST"


Shirley Bassey's performance on this DVD proves time and time again that she is the ultimate Diva. I have listened to many female singers and this lady truly deserves the title of Diva! From the first song she sings onstage to the very last song, she captured my undivided attention with the majesty of her voice, her artistry, and poise. This DVD is a must-have for all fans who love Shirley. Her performance on this DVD proves that she is indeed "THE BEST OF THE BEST"!

Tomstone


Tombstone is a really slick movie, it comes alive with action and emotion. Very accurate in it's attention to detail. Colorful customes and the actors play their characters as if they were "them" ,definitely well chosen for the parts they played. I was revited to the screen the first time I saw the movie. The electricity between Wyatt Earp (Kurt Russell) and Josephine Marcus was quite evident and added a hint of mystery and expectation. The detail of Doc Holiday (Val Kilmer) was quite believable, as his role of the "ill" gambler, a very interesting complex character! This movie is entertaining and exciting, although bloody in some parts but realistic!

I am a VERY white girl, and was concerned that I wouldn't be able to do this video. NOT at all the case. I absolutely loved the first section, and had probably the best time I've ever had exercising (stomping around as an elephant? Being fire? Water?)
The instructional part was harder for me to grasp, but I did come up with some reasonable approximations of the dances, and I'm steadily getting better. It was generally clear and well demonstrated, and some of the costumes (especially the simple white dresses) were gorgeous!
I'm learning to belly dance, and I find it hard to improvise and dance freely. This video not only gives me a good workout and makes me feel happy and relaxed, it's also helping me to improvise better!

I am sooooo HAPPY


I know that this film is hated by some people, but I don't care, I love this movie, for many reasons. The people that hate this movie say that is bad because it is vane, pretentious and over acted, well to me that's just stupid arguments, first of all, the film is not vane and empty, what about Tony's relationship with his sister, I thought that was very good. And also the statement made about the 80s, the hedonistic lifestyle that not just U.S.A but the world lead in that era, how many people like Tony threw their lives down the toilet by getting drunk, high, mixed up in crimes, and eventually killed. This movie has and extra meaning because of my country of birth and my age. I was born and still live in Colombia, and although I was a kid during the 80s, I still remember them and the legacy that still resonates in today's world. During the 80s my country was the birth place of many Tony Montana's, Colombia was THE drug country, and everyone here remembers the times of Pablo Escobar(the biggest drug lord ever, he was bigger than Al Capone) and so I think I like this movie so much is because the life style shown in Scarface was more common here than in the States, here we had very flashy and druglords that had over the top houses, cars, fashion and all of that, and they were famous, everybody knew of them and their lifestyle, and so I can relate very much to Scarface in the sense that I find it very believable. And I think Pacino acted wonderfully, because that was the behaviour of Colombia's drug lords, and so to me he is not over acting. And if you don't believe any of the stuff I just said well then, the movie is also very entertaining, it has plebty of dark humour, action, suspense, drama, and a buch of other stuff. To sum up my review of the film itself, I think the statement made at the end is very powerful(THE WORLD IS YOURS), it show how the hedonistic and careless behavior of living in excess in every aspect lead to the tragic almost Hamlet like end for Tony Montana, every thing he cared and loved got killed, or abandoned him(his sister, his best friend, his wife, his mother, his mentor, etc.). The film has also a special charm, the 80s charm, I for one miss this era of bad taste and excess, I miss it's fashion, it's music, it's attitude(the world is yours), everything, here in Colombia the 80s were fantastic, because although the drug lords did all sorts of bad stuff, they were also beneficial in the sense that they helped our eceonomy and Colombia saw a huge economical boom because of their huge profits due to the eager drug markets from Europe and the United States, since the drug lords gave lot's of jobs to architects, construction workers, the scene in the movie in which Tony has a tiger in a small island in his huge mansion is great because that was the sort of stuff that drug lords had here(they had birthday parties for their kids in which they gave out t.vs, or beta sets, etc.), and also they had a lot of money, and the spend it in Colombia, so, even thought it was drug money, it was money, and economically speaking, when money is inserted into the circular money flow, the GDP of the country grew, and so Colombia grew and changed from a small banana republic, to a rather big and prosperous country due to drug lords, that finished when the country entered into a recession(a rather chaotic one in the 90s but that's a whole other story), so, as you can see, this is a topic in which I have a great knowledge and interest, and so, I love the movie, Pacino's passionate performance(with a funny accent), and lots of other stuff I have already said.
Now, speaking about the DVD, I love the fact that there will be a re-release of the movie, and the is called Anniversary Edition, which I hope that implies Special Edition, which implies the following I hope:2 or more discs, remastered sound and image, the film im just one disc, the special features in the other(unlike Gangs of N.Y), spanish subtitles in order for my non-english speaking relatives to watch, trailers, interviews with the cast, the director, the screenwritter and all, a commentary, documentaries and the drug cartels and the making of the movie, etc.I hope it is a great edition, I hope that the ones that are doing it take a lesson from great special editions like the Lord of the Rings Special Extended edition series, or the T2 special edition, or all the other great special editions, and that it is not just the movie and few to say the least additions, remember editions like the one of Apocalypse Now just to say one, it was junk, just the trailer, come on, the film is very good and it is still without extras worth buying, but come on, the DVD is not just better sound and picture quality, is the possibility to get a broader look of the film and learn about many things that in the beta and the VHS era were impossible to learn. I am really looking forward to this film that appears that has gain greatness with time, and I hope that it will gain more greatness ans more time passes, like a good wine. Please believe me, "I always tell the truth, even whe I lie"-Tony Montana

What is real?


"The Matrix" definitely asks that question. I had the chance of seeing it in theaters, and let me tell you that it was one of the mose riveting movie experiences I've had in a long time."The Matrix" follows the story of Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves), who goes by the alias of 'Neo' by night, when he works as a computer hacker. His life is turned upside down when he meets Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) and Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne), two people who reveal a secret so stunning that Neo is unable to believe. From there on it's a complete and awesome thrill ride.The special effects, camerawork, and editing are all top notch. "The Matrix" plays with your mind at every turn, and hopefully everyone will like it.

We Love It!!!


My boyfriend and I love this video. He is new to yoga, and somewhat reserved, so I was nervous that he wouldn't like it. I, on the other hand, was looking for a video that would incorporate the spiritual aspect of yoga during the practice. We're both thrilled to find that we enjoy this video together. We feel so refreshed after completing a session.

Why do we love it?
* The setting is next to the ocean and is really refreshing - you can align your breath to the rolling waves of the ocean (using sound or sight)
* Rivea's naration is well-done
* The yoga matrix lets you develop a practice as short or as long as you want it, and as novice or as advanced as you'd like
* There are options for both morning and evening practices - this is helpful because you don't want to do a energizing session at night

She does have some really advanced moves, but we just skip them. It gives us something to work-up to in the future.
