Bobby Darin - Beyond the Song - movie DVD cover picture
Loved this guy. Still do


This is Mother's Day 2005 and I have just received this DVD as a gift from my son.Didn't pay attention as I opened it and put it into the computer thinking it was an audio disc. I sat entranced as Bobby Darin's life unfolded on the screen. Now it is 2:10 am Pacific Time next morning. I have played parts of it several times during the day and night since it was received. It was so great to see sweet, beautiful Sandra Dee and their son both as a child and now adult. The musical skit with
Darin impersonating Durante and their later interchange was very amusing. Chapter 17 - The family secret - is something that I had not known before. Sad. But could be nothing but happy listening to Splish Splash, Bayond the Sea and the other great songs.
Love this DVD.

Enough is enough...


Episode One, with its stunning visuals, is a thrill to look at. Parts of it would have worked great as an IMAX show about visions of other planets.
As a movie, and particularly as a Star Wars movie, though, it falls far short. This film, unlike its predecessors, falls into the sci-fi trap of putting spectacle over story, special effects over character development. Yes, it had a lot of hype and expectations to live up to, but storytelling is still storytelling no matter what the medium and genre.
It pains me to say it, but this particular Lucas installment is all flash and no Force.

Phantom Menace


If this had been the first "Star Wars" movie to hit theaters 20 years ago, I'm confident that it would have been a flop, there wouldn't have been a part 2 or 3, and there wouldn't now be, 20+ years later, a Star Wars legacy with millions of fans world-wide. If asked to stand on its own, this movie just crumbles under own weight. The acting is abysmal, the dialog isn't much better, and though the plot has a lot going for it, it falls completely flat under Lucas's bad direction. The spark of magic George had when he directed Episode 4 is pretty much absent from this production. I don't mean to be offensive, but for a great many of us this movie was a HUGE letdown, and it simply does not stand on its own merits.
The DVD on the otherhand is a pretty impressive production. It is loaded with all sorts high-quality extras including a great "making of" documentary, deleted scenes, commentary, and much more. Though I dislike the movie, I feel that the DVD is worth owning simply because of the weath of interesting information available in these extras.

Legend of Loch Lomond (Large Format) - movie DVD cover picture
IMAX at its best


This film is much different than the other IMAX documentaries available. It is more of a docu-drama. The story is interesting and the acting is very good. The scenes of Scottland are breathtaking. If you are looking for a IMAX film that dares to be different...this is DVD for you. Take the high road and purchase The Legend of Loch Lomond.

Four Weddings and a Funeral - movie DVD cover picture
English man, english life and an american woman


When I first time watched it, I fell that it is the highest level for romantic comedy. I still keep that feeling. The characters were so real than ever. The most important part in the movie for me is the The poem by W. H. Auden.
Funeral Blues
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,Silence the pianos and with muffled drumBring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overheadScribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,My working week and my Sunday rest,My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;I thought that love would last for ever; I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood,For nothing now can ever come to any good.

I hate TV...and loved this


Just to add to the groundswell, this is a terrific watch (tv?movie?). The Twin Peaks references are deserved (loved that too), and I'm glad to see someone providing information on Pt.2, as the moment part one ended I went into withdrawals! If you like a challenge, something different, the unusual, treat yourself to this. Wonderful

Jesus of Nazareth - movie DVD cover picture
The most accurate protrayal of the life and times of Jesus!


This film is an absolute must for anyone who is interested in the life and times of Jesus, from birth to resurrection!It probably protrays the most accurate account possible. It is a very moving film and helps you understand Him as a Jewish Rabbi as well as the Son of God. Robert Powell did a superb job!!!

Life Is Beautiful - movie DVD cover picture
Amazing!


I couldn't watch this movie, and I couldn't not watch. I kept having to get up and step outside, but I couldn't turn away from it. Roberto Benigni's story of a madcap romantic who sacrifices everything to save the life and innocence of his son in the face of the most monsterous evil the world has ever seen is wildly, inventively funny and heartbreaking, both at the some time. This is one of the best movies of the last 20 or 30 years, and easily the best movie of the 1990s. I may never have the courage to watch it again, but I will never forget it.
