Love of all things Irish


I have to admit, i've never seen the Corrs in concert, maybe i'll get to someday. I've been a fan since they released "Runaway" as a single. I own several cd's and dvd's. I have a certain fondess for Caroline, the drummer, despite now that she's married. However, I own this dvd and if you only ever own one Corrs dvd, you should get this one. My favorite video is "Breathless", but I like every video that's on the dvd. One of my favorite music dvd's in my collection.

Hercules The Legendary Journeys Season 2


Hercules Season 2 is a brilliant box set. The bonus disc is great as are the video and audio commentarys given by Kevin as he's watching certain episodes. The picture quality is excellent. I've been a fan of Hercules since it started and Kevin, so it's great to see Hercules getting the regonition it deserves at last. Season 2 is a must for any DVD collection and a must for all Hercules's fans. Five stars all the way and I can't wait for Season 3 to see what goodies will be included.

Burnt by the Sun - movie DVD cover picture
An excellent , emotional tragedy of Communist Russia


This film breaches the boundaries of nationality, language, and history in order to display the spirit of the Russian people and the horrible times this people has been through. The plot is a beatiful tragedy. Alexei Kotov, a hero of the Russian Revolution, is living out his last day with his family, to be taken away and executed by Stalin's secret police at the end. A truly devastating film, perfectly accurate historically, sophisticated and well-wrought. There is no happy ending.

BOUNTIFUL HARVEST IN THIS CLASSIC WEEPIE!


One of the all time great four hanky tearjerkers, "Random Harvest" (1942) is a bittersweet tale of love and sacrifice, set against that mythical backdrop of jolly ol' Britain that never was. It stars Ronald Colman as Charles Rainier, a war veteran who is suffering from amnesia. Paula Ridgway (Greer Garson) is the unfortunate dance-hall hostess who falls in love and marries Charles - renamed John Smith. But true love never runs a straight course and John and Paula's brief chance at divine happiness is overturned when a car accident jogs John's memory. He returns to the life he once knew, oblivious that his new and fragile world with Paula ever existed.
Colman's gentlemanly congeniality, as always, astounds with genuine canter and frank grace and maturity - qualities soarly lacking from the leading men of today's cinema. Garson is charming; blowing in as a summer's breeze and just as passionate, divine and charming as Colman. Director Mervyn LeRoy modulates each plot point and circumstance with subtle panache and quiet rectitude for his subject matter. There's never a point at which the melodrama becomes cheap, exploitive or overwrought. Ah, but the years may pass and memories fade, but "Random Harvest" has proven to be that rarest of eternal cinematic treasures - genuine and outstanding in every way.
Warner Home Video delivers a marvelous DVD transfer. The gray scale has been impeccably rendered with fine tonality and attention to fine detail. The picture is generally sharp and pleasing on the eyes. Blacks are very rich, deep and solid. Whites are on the whole clean. Occasionally one will detect a note of edge enhancement and the odd age related artifact, but these are bare quibbling on an otherwise flawless presentation. The audio is mono and very nicely balanced. A hint of background hiss is detected in quiescent scenes, but again, for a film element that is pushing 70 plus years, there's really nothing to complain about here. Two vintage short subjects, a trailer gallery and audio only broadcast of the film round out the extras. A very nicely put together trip down memory lane from the good people over at Warner Brothers. Top marks and highly recommended!

Just an amazing movie


The two main characters is a prision guard(Tom Hanks) and a huge black man who is being killed for killing two little girls. Wail he is at the jail he does not seem very harmful. There are two other prisioners that are there too. A old man who has a pet mouse named Mr.Jingles and a crazy young man who is always doing bad things to the prision guards. There are two other prison guards. One of them is a very tall man but would not hurt a fly and there is ride and mean Percy who will make trouble where ever he can. This movie has some funny parts some suspensiful parts and some very sad parts. I am not a fan of sad movies but I still loved this movie although it was ar some times a tiny bit confusing. This is a have to see movie just remember that it is very long.

Red Green is living proof that comedy can be clean and safe for the whole family. If you're like my family and prefer to keep the trash and smut away from your TV but love a good comedy, check this out. Blows SNL out of the water in the humor department.

The Last Samurai (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
blew me away


"The Last Samurai" was a story about a man who changes the way that he feels about a certain type of people in Japan. It stars Tom Cruise, but to me he was not the star of the film. I feel that the movie had most of its power from the supporting actor Ken Watanabe. The way that he acted throughout the movie could give him the Oscar in the Best Supporting Actor Catagory. The entire movie could win many different awards, and I'm glad that Tom Cruise was not nominated, because I have seen him in much better roles, like "Minority Report," or "Vanilla Sky." His great scene comes towards the end, where he gives emotion and power at once.
Cruise plays Captain Nathan Algren, a Civil War hero who loves to drink. He's recently come from battling American Indians in the west, and often had bad memories of what took place during those battles. But Algren gets a job when Japanese businessman Omura wants him to train the new army, with somebody that he knows Bagley. Bagley wants Algren because of the way that he battled the Indians. Algren agrees when he is able to bring his fellow Army fighter Sergeant Zebulon Gant. When they make it to Japan, they are met by the translator Simon Graham, and they begin to train the troops for battle. But Omura wants them to fight the samurai and their leader Katsumoto right away, and overrules Algren causing him to take his inexperienced troops to battle the Katsumoto. Algren is almost killed during the battle, but taken back to Katsumoto's village, which is ruled by his son. Algren is trapped, and there is no way for him to be able to return back to Japan. While with Katsumoto, he learns all about the way of the samurai and he finds out that there is nothing wrong with the people that Omura wants to kill. But it also becomes clear that Bagley is getting ready to fight. Algren befriends Katsumoto, and the two learn that they have much more in common then they oringally thought, and it becomes clear to Algren what he must do.
"The Last Samurai" was a beautiful film. It had a beautiful sceney, beautiful action, some beautiful acting, and beautiful direction. I really did love it, and I am including it on the best of 2004, only beause I saw it at the very beginning of this year. This is one of those movies that you have to see in the theatre, otherwise it is not going to be an good. It is a big screen movie, and I have a feeling that I would have been disappointed if I saw it on video first. Try and see it now, before it totally disappears.
ENJOY!
Rated R for strong violence and battle sequences.
