Lost in Words - absorbing and romantic


I have been to Tokyo many many times for business purpose. I enjoy its glamourous lifestyle, while suffering from the isolation a lot. And I already knows Japanese, still I can't feel being accepted in that country.
In Lost in Translation, it can very much attract the predicaments for foreigners. (say if you understand what the Suntory director said in Japanese). But what really attracts me its the relationship between Bob (Bill) and Charlotte (Scarlett). They both are great actor/actress, their encounter is always sexy, but never explicit. Only with a good script and a good director that such a shy relationship can be portraited in such a powerful way.
As in the interview Scarlett said, this is a character-driven movie, you don't even need a story, all it takes is superb acting plus superb script and superb direction. The chemistry is movie.

WWE - The Rock - Just Bring It! (Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
It's FINALLY Coming out


The Rock-Just Bring It Collectos edition follows the same lead of Hollywood Hulk Hogan's "Hulk Still Rules" DVD!! The DVD is 2 disc and I've hear is incredible. It will be out October first, but I've read fabolous reviewes coming from it. It's not the same junk they brought out months ago, Its a COLLECTORS Edition. I just hope they include his best matches, with HHH, Austin, Benoit etc, which they will! I wonder does the DVD have the Hogan match from WM-X8? This is a must have for any wrestling DVD collector and Rock fan.

Looney Tunes - Golden Collection - movie DVD cover picture
All the greats, but not quite all the best


This collection is outstanding, including the greatest looney tunes cartoons and then some. But answer me this: does anyone remember that cartoon with Daffy Duck and Porky Pig where they played Robin Hood and Friar Tuck, respectively? That's not on this collection, and Foghorn Leghorn is inexcusably reduced to just two shorts. Other than that, this is great; it has just about every favorite cartoon you could hope for (except the one I just mentioned). There's not much else to say, except if you love Looney Tunes, buy this yesterday.

Beautiful Thing - movie DVD cover picture
Why an R rating /


The 128 enormously positive reviews percentage wise, leave little for me to add. Except the "R" rating, it can't be sex, which leaves language. A single very offensive 4 letter word, too difficult to edit out? Unless the American movies we see here in Australia have had the innumerable gratuitous 'F'' words edited out, [which also applies to 'South Park'] what else is there in this movie, a movie that could be a literal life saver for a gay but very frightened 14-15 year old, that would damage the morals of anyone under 18 yrs old? The logic behind this rating escapes me.

Great, clean fun for the whole family


All 3 generations in our family whose ages range from 7 to 70 agreed this movie was well worth our time and money. We greatly enjoyed it! What's more, it piqued the younger ones' interest in reading the novel...

Charmed - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Can't wait till it's released


I've been watching Charmed ever since it aired in the UK. I think it's the best I've seen yet rating along with CSI & Stargate. I've been longing for Charmed to come out on VHS or DVD for over a year now, And have heard the rumours that it should be coming out in 2005. If any one knows for sure your welcome to let me know.

ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL!


This television movie based on the best selling autobiography of country veterinarian James Herriot came before the popular BBC television series. Simon Ward, Anthony Hopkins and Lisa Harrow star in this charming little tale about the new vet who moves a to Yorkshire farming community in the 1930's. Along the way he not only wins his neighbors over but also finds romance. Directed by Claude Whatham, this 1974 film does not have the depth of the television series, but you can clearly see why people would want more of the same on a more regular basis.

...And Metal for all


Just as expected!!! You got a taste of every metal style you could find. I'm not a black/death big fan but the more u explore, the more u feel drained by the melody-brutality. If it only had some interviews, mmmm, maybe for the volume 2.

Sponge Bob Square Pants The Movie


This was just plain goofy fun. If you're a fan of the tv show you'll love it. I loved the pirates in this movie also. One thing that I am noticing though is when you go in Walmart there is a $5.00 price diff on the full screen version as opposed to widescreen. I noticed this on Shark Tale also. I don't like this trend, I think it's a ripoff in a way because they both should be the same price. I much prefer WS but FS is a lot cheaper. Oh well.

An excellent movie!


I know all of you film critics out there don't like to go see a movie and not see what was in the preview, but you have to understand, this is a horror movie, not a comedy! Don't expect this movie to be funny. What made this movie really good, was that Sarah Michelle Gellar in it.
