V.I. Warshawski - movie DVD cover picture
Marvelous detective movie!


Fans of Sara Paretsky's heroine, V.I. Warshawski will enjoy the clever one-liners tossed off so well by Kathleen Turner. The character's wise-girl bravura is sometimes at odds with Turner's soft beauty, but the actor does some very convincing martial arts moves not usually associated with her past performances. It's fascinating to watch how fast and furious Ms. Turner can be in these scenes!
The plot features a 13 old kid whose father is murdered. Warshawski reluctantly allows the girl to accompany her on the investigation, but be rest assured that the young actress playing the daughter wins over both you and Warshwaski without resorting to being cutesy or phony.
Readers of the detective series will spot most of the recurring characters in the books, most notably Lottie and Murray. There is the disappointing exception of Mr. Contreras, whose paternal advice and counsel is handled instead by Charles Durning's police investigator character.
I liked the movie and highly recommend it, mostly for Turner's shining screen presence. She may not be the most obvious choice for portraying V.I., but she keeps you enthralled with her great sense of humor and tough woman tenacity. I would have loved to see this movie turned into a series. After the movie ended, I wanted to see more!
The video quality is very good and was taken from an outstanding print, so you get your money's worth with the DVD version.

This movie was sooo awesome! I loved the part where the guys kissed! I ordered this movie 3 times on ppv!! They need to make a Dude, Where's My Car 2!! It probably wouldn't be as good as the first one though...but I would watch it!! The best part about the movie was "The Kiss" scene...and Ashton was sooooo hot!! This movie was sooo funny!

Bend It Like Beckham


Okay, I'm not big on sports, but I absolutely loved this movie. I thought that it might be trying to include too many things in one movie, with culture barriers to vault, sports and competition, and a love story....but I was greatly mistaken and glad to be. This movie was wonderfully done and not only was it a great movie, but it also had great characters, great actors, great costumes, and a great soundtrack! I recommend this for anyone who likes romances, comedy, drama, sports, or all of the above! Don't bother renting it, just buy it! Enjoy!

Okay i'm biased. i love this film, the duel on the cliffs of insanity inspired me to learn how to fence. so i have been waiting for this dvd release for ages. the movie is still great, the fencing is still exciting and every bit as much fun as the first time i saw it. the one liners are still cute and the characters still cool. my only complaint with the dvd release is where are the extras. apart from the trailer the dvd is devoid of extras. no commentaries, no deleted scenes. but the dvd is cheaper than alot and that is something good. if you want a good adventure film or love it then buy it.

I've watched it five times!


I'm an antiques dealer and the first time I watched this movie the house and period clothing the aunts wear is what caught my eye! Everytime I watch it I see something I missed before! And I also think Bullock and Kidman are great together. I've watched this movie so many times my kids are teasing me about becoming a "good witch".

Harry Potter Rules!!!


I love this movie. The special effects are great. It's even better because all the actors are really British. I've love the way the directer stays true to the books. That is a plus for sure.

Must....have....this....DVD.....can't.....live.....without..


This is one of the best looking and sounding examples of DVD technology yet. Let me put it this way. It's the best I've seen. The DTS sound is excellent and after some fine tuning via the provided THX monitor test patterns the pictures is as good as it gets. It's clear, sharp and free of any compression artifacts.
There are two reasons to buy this DVD: First, it's a great movie. Second, it's the perfect home theatre showcase/test disc. It also has a metal cover! Cool! Buy it, buy it, buy it... PS: Buy a bigger subwoofer too!

Married with Children 2nd Season


I have to agree with most of the other people out there who have wrote reviews. Married with Children is a classic sitcom the same as Andy Griffith or I Love Lucy.... I am anxious to collect all of the seasons as they are released. I just don't understand why it is taking so much time for them to be released. I prefer the episodes with Jefferson instead of Steve but I would rank them all with 5 stars.

Utu - movie DVD cover picture
A New Zealand "Last of the Mohicans"


The conflicts of the indigenous peoples of Australia and New Zealand are often eclipsed by the conflict of Native Americans against the U.S. government. Utu offers an insightful snapshot into the conflict many of the New Zealand Maori felt against the encrouching culture of the English. The film showed that even those Maori who aided the English struggled inside to keep their cultural identity from being pulled into the undertoe of English colonialism.

The film serves up a good course of action, especially with the double barrelled shotgun scene. I highly recommend this film because it vividly presents the conflict between colonial powers and indigenous peoples. This film is "Last of the Mohicans" in a New Zealand context.
