Ah! My Goddess - The Movie - movie DVD cover picture
New to me, but I loved it!!!


The "oh my goddess" series and the "ah my goddess" (dont worry the "ah" and "oh" in the names refer to the same series) movie are one of the best "Romantic Comedies" out on the market. It has everything you could ever want from this genre of anime, it will give you the chance to run through the full spectrum of your emotions. While whatching the movie, when the credits rolled at the end, i found my self just sitting on my chair just stairing in aww (ohh yeah by the way the music in the movie epecially the ending theme song IS AWESOME). I highly recomend this movie to any one who loved the "oh my goddess series." The only thing that bohtered me a little was that they changed most of the voices, which isnt bad it actually added to the fealing that time had advanced (three years to be excact). SO PLEASE WATCH THIS ANIME, YOU WONT REGRET IT.

I "second that emotion" ...


I agree with everything the guy from the Icefall said, and then some. Strange, cryptic films always appeal to me. Pure poetry.

Close to You - Remembering the Carpenters - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent excerpts of The Carpenters Music and TVs.


I have listened to the Carpenters since I was probably 14 or 15, now I am 26 - that is a long time. I was not even exposed to their music directly, but rather got drawn to it through a movie called The Karen Carpenter Story (but strange I can't find that movie anywhere!)
Anyway, what I am trying to say is that having been a big fan of the duo for over ten years says something about the quality of their music. I have just seen this DVD and this has fulfilled my dream of seeing them performing live from their earliest days. Sure these are not complete music videos, but the story, interviews, footages (the White House concert, etc.) presented are a thrill to watch. Any of us can listen the Karen's music anytime on CDs, but seeing her live when she was alive and well is priceless. And oh, that hauntingly, angelically beautiful voice !!!
The thing I like most about the DVD is how it makes you love the Carpenters even more after watching it. Own it and you will fall in love with the Carpenters all over again.

The best


This has got to be the best gay film I've ever seen. I was completely thrown off by the acting these actors gave out. These guys give out academy award winning performances. In one scene where a guy tells another guy he is married you can see a single tear instantly fall from his eye. These people can cry like you wouldn't believe. And the best performance in the movie is from an old guy in a bar who talks about how he was thrown in a concentration camp for being gay. This film is absolutely brilliant and should be seen by everyone.

Are you happy with your work?


"I accuse my parents" is an underrated MST. The film was intended to teach a message about booze and the effects it can have on your home life. The movie concernd Jimmy a young man in denial about his home life and rights a bogus essay potraying his home life as ideal to the standards of the time. Think of Jimmy as the white Jason Blair of his day. Jimmy meets night club moll Kitty and her mobster boyfriend Charles Blake. Jimmy divides his time between his shoe salesman job("A young al bundy" servo)and the mob. Kitty's musical number's are hilarious in their awfulness and I liked the "annoncements" J&TB made during the songs. The sketches, they are art therapy where Joel analyses the robots, a dance scene wherein Gypsy sings Kitty's song Joel plays customers and Servo and Crow play waters, there is also a sketch where they try and figure out Jimmy's problems. The last sketch is great you have to see the movie to get it but it is really funny. The short is a disturbingly cheerful look at DDT and Mexican laborers. A great buy for any MSTie.

One of the Best Jackie Chan films I have ever seen.


Rush Hour is one of Jackie Chan's best! He is so great as Inspector Lee. And Chris Tucker is so funny as James Carter. The Action sequences and fights are so good. Especially the fight in the bar. It gets so funny every minute, you'll want to watch it again after the first time. Watch the final fight in the movie. It gets funny by the minute. I give it 5 out of 5.

The Adventures of Robin Hood (Two-Disc Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Splits the Arrow


Must have seen this movie first in about 1944 or 45. I remember the Merry Men falling off the trees on top of the Norman thugs, and knocking them to the ground; also the bobbing tin hat in the final punch-up being removed, to collect a nice thwack from a merry mace; and the thin, sneering features of the evil Sir Guy. Have seen it many times since then, of course, and now I've got this terrific dvd I'll see it many times in the future. It is possible to criticise this film, but any fault-finding would be completely pointless. Forget it, this is the best there is or ever will be. Gee, I wish I could be Errol Flynn. Even the name swashes with buckle. Was that really Basil Rathbone's real name ? It positively seethes with dastardness. What man wouldn't dream of melting within those soft, sweet contours of ultra-beautiful Olivia ? This is a film that glows with the kind of political correctness that will always matter, not the piles of garbage that are served up today.

Very high energy


I really like this routine. It is very high energy, gets your heart pumping. I am always sweaty afterwards. One of the best things about this routine is that it can be done in a small area. Not much moving outside a large box. I think the cueing is great and the music is fun. The people in the back ground are not as bad as some "mechanical people" in other videos. They all have on different outfits, which is nice. There is no beginning warm up, that is just something that I do on my own. For a beginner, just learning to work out, that is not good. You should learn about form and technique. The 7 minute strech at the end is wonderful. Very relaxing. The lullaby music in this segment is calming. Nice way to end the workout.I am not a fan of Kathy, but I really enjoy this workout.

Crossroads - movie DVD cover picture
"The Devil Went Down to Georgia" on guitar


...Crossroads is the story of aspiring Blues guitarist, and current classicalguitar student at the Julliard School of Music, Eugene Martone. Eugeneworships the blues and is constantly getting in trouble for this with his,
more learned, teachers. Through a lot of research Eugene finds that agenuine Blues Harp (harmonica) man has been put in the local prisonhospital. With a bit of subterfuge Eugene is able to get a job there and meetsWillie Brown who initially wants nothing to do with this young pup. FinallyWillie sees a use for this boy and agrees to teach him the lost music oflegend, Robert Johnson, in exchange for Eugene busting him out of thehospital and taking him down to his home in Mississippi. Eugene reluctantly does this and then much to his horror finds thatthey don't have the money necessary to get them to Mississippi. Williescoffs at Eugene's protests and states that if he is really a blues man thenthey will have no problems hoboing across country. They do this and at firstEugene is horrified especially at the lack of food and the lack ofshelter...and the occasional death threats. But after he begins to feel themusic course through his soul and learns about love on the road he begins toappreciate hoboing and old Willie more and more. Finally they reach Mississippi and Willie begins asking if anyoneknows about the crossroads because he has to meet someone there. All alonghe keeps putting off Eugene about the lost songs of Robert Johnson. Williefinally tells Eugene the reason they are going to the crossroads is that hehas to meet a man that he long ago made a deal with...a deal for his soul inexchange for the music. Eugene blows up at this and accusing the old man ofrunning scam after scam on him. When a black car appears out of nowhere and the two are transportedto a raucous dance hall, Eugene shuts up. Willie pleads his case to anotherold man that shows up and is told no deal. Eugene, being young anddisbelieving, steps in on Willie's side and is suddenly facing a choice. Hecan participate in a "Head-Cutting" contest, a little see if you can topthis musical contest, with the hard rock guitar playing wild-man that isthere. If he wins, Willie is free. If he looses...both their souls areforfeit. Walter Hill has to have a love of music in his soul. He directs thismovie with the slow easy feeling of the Blues running through the majorityof it yet also knows when to kick in the hard edge of rock to move the pacealong. His visuals in the South bring back memories of magnolia, kudzu, anda sleeper time of life. Ralph Macchio plays the cynical Eugene perfectly. We have seen him
more than once as the New Yorker thrown into the South and he manages thefish out of water context perfectly. He also manages to fake playing theguitar well enough when it is focused on him that it isn't insulting tomusicians watching the piece. Obviously though, the key here is the music. Ry Cooder isresponsible for the majority of the score and it would be harder to find amore accomplished guitarist. He knows the blues and can switch into theclassical styling with no threat to the continuity of the performance. TheDevil's guitarist is played by rock legend, Steve Vai. The duel betweenSteve and a Ry Cooder influenced Eugene is a treat for the ears. It comesacross as a visual "Devil went down Georgia" and shows both the agony andecstasy that music can bring to people. I strongly recommend this one.
