Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Full Screen Edition) (Harry Potter 1) - movie DVD cover picture
My Favorite Harry Potter movie


Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was, in my opinion better than the chamber of secrets. I saw the chamber of secrets in the theater but it didn't seem like it was very good and I hope that if they make a movie for all of the books, they will all be worth watching.
I'm pretty sure most of yyou reading my review will already know the story but I'll mention it anyway. The story is about a boy named Harry Potter[Daniel Radcliffe] who lives with his evil step-parents, the Dursleys. Untill, one day he gets a letter inviting him to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry since he is a wizard even though he doesn't know it. The whole story talks about how he finds out about the Sorcerer's stone which is a stone that can make anyone immortal.
I thought that the movie was good except some parts weren't in the movie that were in the book, but there were very few. This is not one of the best movies in the world but it is still funto watch at times. I thought that all of the books were good but my only complaint was that sometimes the plot got a little confusing. The only person I recognize from the making of this movie was Chris Columbus. He was the directer of Home Alone which is also a good movie.
The special features include: never before-seen footage, self guided tour of Hogwarts, theatrical trailer and you can perform certain activities. I tried a few of these features but I think they're more for kids.
If you are a fan of Harry Potter then you should see this movie. I also think that the chamber of secrets is also worth a try.

'Ansel Adams meets Elia Kazan' in this awesome film!


Once upon a time, Hollywood made "films, " and some of these films became the epitdome of art. That talent has all but been forgotten in an era where imagination takes a back seat to the obvious. There used to be a clamor for fine directors and actors who could convey the thoughts and feelings of an author or screenwriter without the use of nudity or foul language. They used to make films without explosions and blood and gore. And those films used to be AND still are better than most anything that Hollywood cranks out today.
Enter "A River Runs Through It" directed by Robert Redford. This film is a quiet character study that has brilliance in the acting and directing. This is so apparent that you'll find your emotions welling up in you as you watch it. It is such a delicately made film that you'll need to watch it multiple times to understand that the director and actors aren't going to spell out what you should be feeling. They aren't going to speak every emotion they're having - you're going to have to surmise those for yourself. This is so NOT like the films Hollywood makes today. It's a subtle, beautiful film.
Brad Pitt may have made a mark in the public's collective memory when he appeared shirtless in "Thelma and Louise", but in "A River Runs Through It" he shows his chops and in doing so, let's us know he is an exceedingly talented actor not just a pretty boy.
Craig Sheffer (has the lead in this film and does a phenomenal job of giving us a young man living with the painful knowledge that he must forever live in the shadow of his younger brother, Paul (Pitt). Though, Norman (Sheffer) is the reliable touchstone, Paul has a remarkable brightness of light that encompasses him.
Paul is the opposite of Norman emotionally, but they share a common familial bond and a love of fly fishing in the Missoula River. They are able to work out their differences while they fish. Theirs is a relationship that doesn't depend on words, but rather on understanding.
A River Runs Through It is not unlike the story of the prodigal child, nor is it too far removed to be able to be compared to Elia Kazan's "East of Eden". It, too, was an intelligent film that didn't spell everything out for the viewer.
The story revolves around Norman and Paul as they grow up in Montana with their minister father and loving mother in the 1920's. Montana, itself, is a character in this film, as Redford shows us its majesty and grandeur without making it feel like a travelogue.
At once, funny and poignant and heart rending, A River Runs Through It tells us the quiet story of the two brothers growing into manhood and getting on with their lives. It doesn't have car crashes and there's no gratuitous nudity. The script doesn't rely on the screenwriter having a hampered vocabulary, thus forcing him to use expletives instead of true dialogue.
No, A River Runs Through It depends on talent. Talent from the book it was based on - talent from the screenwriter - talent from the director - and finally, talent from the fine cast of actors.
After watching this film, I doubt you'll be able to understand why it didn't take every award that Hollywood doles out.
It doesn't get much better than this.

The Mists of Avalon - movie DVD cover picture
the best


The best aspect of this adaptation of Marion Zimmer Bradley's classic book was the casting--nobody could have portrayed the Lady of the Lake better than Anjelica Huston and Julianna Margulies was the perfect Morgaine.
I've never read the book (though you can be sure I will now) but this is exactly the way I imagined the legend of Camelot as a child--though I was glad to see Morgaine portrayed in a positive light for once. She really was the backbone of this version.
The soundtrack is okay, but one would be better advised to purchase Loreena McKennitt's CD THE VISIT instead--it captures the mood of Avalon and the Mother Goddess.

Great fun, great movie


Wow. I never expected that Spider-man would be so great. ... After I saw the preview, I said to myself, "Tobey Maguire is going to play Spider-man? The world must be coming to an end." I guess I was just out of the mix, because Maguire did a great job, and the movie is more than I ever thought it could be. It's awesome man! The movie is better than the cartoon, and that's saying a lot. Spider-man's costume looks so cool, as does the Green Goblin's (Willem Dafoe). The action sequences are fast-paced and riveting, and Danny Elfman's musical score is rich and powerful. Well, here is the real reason why Spider-man is so great: Remember how it was easier to be entertained as a kid? I do. I remember that during every Power Rangers episode (at least the old-school ones), I would wait in suspense until the morph battle at the end. ...the Megazord would take one swift swing at the evil monster with his awesome blade, and the bad guy he would fall dead, helpless to the amazing power of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. See, what the power Rangers did for me then, Spider-Man does for me now. I didn't just pass the movie off as comic book nonsense. I was like whoa. Spider-Man is the real deal. And, hidden beneath all the wondrous action and comic book drama (which is by no means a bad thing), there's a message from the hero: "With great power, comes great responsibility." Spider-man is a modern myth. I just can't wait until the sequel.

Braveheart - movie DVD cover picture
Great Scots


Starred in and directed by Mel Gibson, this epic movie is based on the gruesome events that took place when Scotland decided to resort to fighting to gain its freedom from the ruling fist of England, "Braveheart" is one of those movies that has it all. If you want romance, laughter, drama, action, or death, it's all here. From loves first, innocent kiss to the final blood curdling screams that escape the lips of the dying as the last threads of life part from their limp twisted bodies, this movie will draw you into the action making you feel as if you're witnessing it all first hand. Mel Gibson gives what I consider to be his best performance in his role as William Wallace, a man hell bent on avenging the death of his true love. In the process of seeking his own revenge Wallace rallies the people of Scotland and leads them into battle after battle against the English army, making a name for himself, and showing England that Scotland is a serious threat and will not be bought by false promises of land and money. The battle scenes in this movie are superb, making it well worthy to be a "man's movie", but the romantic, noble side of William Wallace, makes this a sweet love story, guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye of anyone with half a heart. I for one will openly admit that I shed tears for the noble purpose that captured my attention, fulfilled my need for gore, and then immediately enthralled my mind.
