Meet the Flintstones!


Like so many others who remember watching these classic Hanna-Barbera when they originally ran in the sixties and seventies, I'm so glad that Warner Bros has seen fit to distribute these classics of good, quality american animation.
While most anime shows concentrate on extensive dialogue and fancy computer animation, watching these classics on DVD with the simple animation and easy to follow simple plotlines, it's take me back to an easier time of my childhood.
While I haven't seen most of these episodes, this DVD set really made me laugh because of the obvious connection to the Honeymooners television series that it seems modeled after. If you're a fan of classic animation and of simpler times without the violence that occupies so much animation these days, this is the ultimate in family entertainment any any fan would truly feel deprived if they passed this one up.

Swatch Dogs and Diet Coke Heads


Heather's is a cult classic! I was only 5 years old when Heather's hit the big screen. But thanks to channels like TNT I have been fortunate to catch Heather's on late night cable. This movie makes you laugh one second and shudder the next at how cruel and viscious high school students can be at times. It's not your regular 80's teen flick. It's more then that. I recommend that if you haven't seen Heather's that you rent it today!

A Great Conclusion To A Great Story


Kill Bill Vol. 2 is a great film. Tarantion dazzled us with action and gore in the first one, and he dazzles us with conversations and intense moments in this one. David Carradine gives the best performance of his career, and captivates the audience as Bill. Uma Thurman is a wonder once again as the bride, and she does even better as the film gets more emotional. the fight scenes are less prevalent, but just just as effective and Tarantino lets all his actors shine with this great script. Michael Madsen is wonderful in this film, and he probably should only work for Tarantino the rest of his career. A brilliantly directed and acted film that rises to the occasion.

The Butterfly Effect (Infinifilm Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Wow


This is an amazing movie. It is such an interesting concept. Everyone has wished at some point that they could go back in the past and change something. This film explores the life of a boy, who when he reaches college realizes he can use his journals to go back in the past to specific events and by changing one little detail, can completely change his "present". The "Chaos Theory" is very intriguing concept and is explored in a very deep personal level throughout the film. A must see for anyone! My personal favorite movie of all time.

The funniest filmed play in history


"Arsenic and Old Lace" is one of my favorite movies! The screenwriting was clever, so was the direction, and the acting. Cary Grant (and the rest of the cast) are hilarious! If you havent' seen it... then you should!

Great stage show on film


Have waited years for L'il Abner to be released and finally, this because of the use of the original broadway shows cast is a factual reproduction something we dont usually find with broadway shows being filmed, the color is magnificent great score I would highly recommend the movie to lovers of Broadway musicals

The War of the Worlds - movie DVD cover picture
Everybody remembers their first time...


This was the first movie I saw in a theatre at about age eight (Yeah, OK, I'm that old) and it is still one of my favorites. Special effects are so commonplace these days, it is difficult to imagine how this film was produced without computers. The effects are still stunning, the acting is typical 50's stuff...and I'm glad I have it in my library. And, amazingly, my kids really got a kick out of it. (When I saw it originally, it didn't scare me at all. But it was playing with "The Naked Jungle" and that gave me nightmares for weeks. Ants...Ugh!)

Avanti! - movie DVD cover picture
Beautiful scenery, fine acting and catchy sound track.


I don't understand why this picture is not more well-known; it has it all. While Lemmon, Mills et al do a fine job, Clive Revill's performance as the hotel manager is a tour de force and worthy of a Supporting Actor Academy Award. If you want to feel good, watch it, taking care not to miss any of the asides and throwaway lines. The scenery and music complement the action wonderfully.

More Stars Than There Are In The Heavens


Musicals--that most surrealistic of motion picture genres--have fallen out of fashion over the past few decades... but at one time they dominated motion picture screens. MGM, a studio which boasted it had "More Stars Than There Are In The Heavens," was reknowned for the musical talents it had under contract. And this clever compilation, with its various segments introduced by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Bing Crosby, and Mickey Rooney, offers an extraordinary collection of musical moments from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s--the golden age of the genre.
The compilation is very, very broad and includes performances by both the still-famous and once-famous, and gives us the opportunity to see some magical moments without having to wade through the entire genre or assess whether or not you actually want to sit through an obscure film in order to see one five minute musical moment. While it includes performances by the delicious Lena Horne (performing "Honeysuckle Rose" before a sophistocated set of drapery and mirrors), the brilliant Elenor Powell (with several offerings, the most memorable being "Begin the Begine" with Fred Astaire), and a host of others, most of the collection revolves around four MGM superstars: Gene Kelly, Esther Williams, Fred Astaire, and Judy Garland. The tribute to Esther Williams is particularly welcome, a marvelous array of some of the most beautiful and beautifully surreal scenes ever put to film; the tribute to Judy Garland, touchingly introduced and narrated by daughter Liza Minnelli, is also particularly well done.
But the real feast here is of musical oddities and rareities. In its search for musical talent, MGM put almost every star under contract through their musical paces--and the result is often truly bizarre. Among the most memorable of these is Joan Crawford, who believe it or not was considered a jazz dancer of some note during the 1920s, and here she (introduced by an emcee as "the personfication of youth, beauty, joy, and happiness) sings and then athelitically stops through "Got A Feeling For You." Robert Montgomery looks awkward trying his hand at light opera; Jimmy Stewart sings pleasantly but unspectacularly; Jean Harlow belts out "Reckless;" and Clark Gable gives a remarkably charming throw-away performance of "Puttin' On The Ritz." It is all tremendous fun.
Of further interest is the fact that most of the narrators have filmed their scenes on the MGM backlot--which was on the verge of demolition when this compilation was made in 1974. It's fading glory is touching, nostalgic, and offers a final glimpse of what was the world's greatest film studio before it entered its final decline. A drawback to the compilation is that at the time it was made few if any of these films had been restored; some of the oldest film clips are in rather poor condition and the brilliance of Technicolor is somewhat reduced in certain scenes. But even with this problem, THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT is a feast of brilliant colors, costumes, spectacular dance numbers, and beautiful sounds, enough to delight any long-time musical fan and convert newcomers to the genre--and the inexpensive price of the video leaves you without excuse for not having it. Strongly recommended.
