Looney Tunes - Golden Collection


I am one who never grew tired of the Looney Tunes cartoons and was thrilled to find them being collected. They have been cleaned up and are shown in their entirety. In addition to the wonderful shorts is included a documentary on the animators, directors, background artists which is very interesting and informative. There is also historians and animators that talk about the different characters and individual shorts. Plus interviews with the original artists themselves. This collection is a very thorough and well done project. Bravo!!! I hope all of the shorts of the Looney Tunes crew, or should I say the Ladies and Gentlemen of Termite Terrace, are put on DVD. These volumes are worth it. Enjoy!

Outstanding Series


I have both Season I and II set of DVD's. These are extremely well done and bring back fond memories of years gone by. I can't remember how many seasons Have Gun Will Travel was on, but if they were on for three, I hope they will publish another season. I can recommend this purchase to anyone.

Best Jap Anime I've seen!


Great art work for this great story! Lots of action, cool characters, (check out the huge "rock like" guy. He's awesome!) Much better than the WAY overrated and boring "Ghost in the Shell" and "Akira". I tried to watch "Ghost" 3 times and fell asleep in the first 15-20min. "Akira" had its moments but never understood why it was the breakthrough in japanese anime.

Saving Private Ryan - movie DVD cover picture
Shows why "the horrors of war" is such a good phrase


I love to hear as much as i can about WW2 movies games etc. but when this came out i knew it was my mission to see it. The movie takes place as everybody knows in WW2, it is about a squadron of men,lead by tom hanks, who are sent to find a missing Private named James Francis Ryan. But before they can set out on their journey they half to get through hell, yeas I am talking about the beaches of Normandy. They manage to get through the devistation that awaits them on the beach and set out for Private Ryan whose two brothers were also killed , and the Army decided to give him Honorable Discharge as an act of good will towards him and his family. This movie is a tearjerker from the scenes of death, but it makes you realize that they gave their life for their country and you.

Definitely makes the short list...great movie.


Incredible soundtrack, lush cinematography, awesome story. I especially like the "fierceness" of the love between Hawkeye and Cora; beautiful honor and integrity (reminds me of William Wallace and Murron in Braveheart...).

Great movie, but not history


I loved this movie, and being an automotive enthusiast with a stable of 9 Studebakers (a company independent from the Big Three), I especially relished seeing the Tucker on the streets of America again. But beware...this is not a documentary and there is much more to the actual story than is shown in Coppola's fable. Anyone intrigued by the movie should conduct their own research into the true story of the Tucker Corporation and find out for themselves why only 50 Tuckers were assembled.

DVD title: V - The Final Battle
Productgroup: DVD
V - The Final Battle - movie DVD cover picture
TO V OR NOT TO V...


Anyone who has seen "V" will want to see this sequel, as well. "V" was one of most original made-for-television movie of its time. It spawned this sequel and its very own television series. It was able to do this with a cast of virtual unknowns because of the strength of its story line. "V" is simply great sci-fi, and "V - The Final Battle" is a must have DVD for all those fans who enjoyed the original mini-series.
As those of you familiar with "V" already know, human looking alien visitors landed on Earth, led by an alien innocuously called John (Richard Herd), who gave Earth a benevolent message that fooled many into thinking that the visitors came in peace. Some humans even ended up working collaboratively with them. There were some, however, that were skeptical of the visitors' motives, and mistrust turned to fear when scientists and doctors began to be rounded up and mysteriously disappeared.
Mike Donovan (Marc Singer), a hunky cameraman, had his own misgivings about the aliens, but once he observed the visitors literally shedding their skins, revealing that that they were not human at all, but rather, nothing more than reptilian looking aliens, his misgivings were reinforced. Mike also discovered that they meant mankind harm and were hell-bent of the conquest of Earth and divestiture of one of Earth's most important natural resources without which humans cannot live.
Mike joined the resistance, headed by beautiful medical doctor, Julie Parish (Faye Grant). As the underground resistance battled the visitors, many humans were still convinced that the visitors were benevolent and being misjudged by these so-called freedom fighters. As fascist rule supplanted democratic government throughout the world, under the pretext of law and order and at the direction of the visitors and at the behest of their human puppets, the viewer cannot help but be aware of the allegorical implications.
This two disc DVD provides three episodic treats. The resistance continues its struggle against the visitors with the assistance of an alien fifth column, working secretly together, side by side. Mike Donovan and Julie Parish are now joined by irascible and laconic Ham Tyler (Michael Ironside), a former special forces agent with a chip on his shoulder and the military strategy necessary to coalesce the resistance movement into a lean, mean, fighting machine.
This sequel mini-series is action packed, as the visitors and the resistance fighters duke it out for control over the Earth. The exquisitely beautiful, evil alien, Diana (Jane Badler), stops at nothing to secure her ambitions. Not content with being the science officer for the invading forces, she seeks military glory at all cost. She is the one from whom both humans and aliens have much to fear.
The allegorical thread also continues, as humans begin to be rounded up routinely and trucked off to a processing plant. After all, it is the visitors fervent desire to serve man...literally. It seems that in addition to the Earth's water, the visitors are secretly looking to humans as a food source.
There are some interesting special effects for its time, as well as some cheesy ones. There are also some key performances. Most notable are those of Jane Badler, in the role of the diabolical Diana, and Michael Ironside, as Ham Tyler, the alien hating resistance fighter. Look also for Robert Englund, who would go on to Freddy Kreuger fame the same year as the release of this mini-series sequel. He continues in the role of Willie, a peaceful loving visitor who allies himself with the resistance.
This film has everything, suspense, action, thrills, a gripping story line, a moral message, and an inter-species birth. How can anyone resist? This is sci-fi as it should be. Bravo!
The DVD provides a crystal clear, widescreen picture and perfect audio, but little else. It provides none of the interesting extras found on the "V" DVD. Instead, the buyer will have to be satisfied with the usual interactive menus, as well as scene access, and subtitles available in English, French. Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Bahasa, Thai, and Korean. All in all, notwithstanding its shortcomings, this is a DVD well worth having in one's collection, if one is a sci-fi diehard.
It is unfortunate that the television series based upon this highly successful mini-series did not fare well. The knuckleheads in charge of programming sentenced it to death right from the beginning by scheduling it opposite the then number one television show, "Dallas". The series never even had a chance coming out of the gate. I only hope that a DVD collection of the series will be forthcoming.

Ben-Hur - movie DVD cover picture
Ted Turner doesn't want you watching this film


The fortieth anniversary of "Ben-Hur" came and went and nobody noticed. No restoration. No special limited theatrical re-release. No special DVD issue with commentary by surviving cast and crew members. Nothing. Why? How could a landmark anniversary for such a beloved and important film go completely unnoticed? Because today, the film's lead actor, Charlton Heston, is president of the National Rifle Association. Because the man who now owns the distribution rights of "Ben-Hur" is Ted Turner who disapproves of the likes of the NRA and by association therefore disapproves of Charlteon Heston. Turner does not want "Ben-Hur" restored, re-released, or published on DVD because somehow this might focas more attention on Charlton Heston who is a bad boy because he doesn't hold the same political beleifs that Ted Turner does. And because of the feelings of Ted Turner, the fans of "Ben-Hur" must endure repeated viewings of this film on a lackluster VHS transfer instead of DVD. Ted Turner... isn't he the guy who colorized classic black and white films? Yep. No suprise to me why "Ben-Hur" has never, and will never be released on DVD.
