Slipknot - Disasterpieces - movie DVD cover picture
Not for everyone, but the perfect experience for a fan


This is the perfect dvd for any person that enjoys the music of Slipknot. I bought this dvd for $9.99. For that price, I would reccomend that anyone buy it. It includes all of their famous songs to come out off of their album. For people that don't know who Slipknot are, they are a hardcore metal band that some people wouldn't like, but trust me, it's an intense ride you'll always have with you on two packed disks. One contains the live concert in London, the other has some music videos.
Best of all though is that is feels exactley as if you are there, the audio is perfect. With explosions, an insane and energetic crowd, and Slipknot rocking the house, this dvd is a must-buy for any person that likes this type of music. 2 hours is more than enough to pull off one of the best performances in concert ever. 5 out of 5.

Utterly Breathtaking!


I just read the reviews of Trip to Bountiful and felt like I needed to write my own to add to this great group of intelligent and tasteful Bountiful fans.
Today was the first time I'd seen Bountiful in its movie form. I live in Nashville, TN, and a theatre troupe I was involved with here put it on several years ago, and I can say that I had the honorable position of being assistant stage manager and set construction assistant in that great show. What a wonderful play to put to life, even on the small stage. Everyone in the production team and in the audience was moved by it every single performance. When I was watching the film today, it was so interesting seeing the parallels between the play and film version, and I really felt like the film was respectful to Foote's original vision. What a breathtaking movie! Has anyone seen the earlier made-for-TV version of it? I have not, and I wonder how it compares to this version... I felt like Bountiful was so reminiscent of O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night, which is arguably my all-time favorite play/film. Bountiful tapped into those same deep-seated emotions O'Neill was remarkable for affecting, and I felt really drawn into the life and struggles of Carrie Watts. Thank you Geraldine Page for one of the most memorable performances I've ever seen! Anyway, I just thought I'd chime in with my two cents to some fellow fans. Best wishes, and here's hoping for Bountiful's speedy release on DVD!

Special Edition is an improvement


Recent Lynch films that have been released on DVD hardly live up to this one. I bought both "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me" and "Muholland Drive", and was satisfied that I at least had stunning digital transfers of each (the sound being nearly perfect on both... profound sound being, after all, a Lynch trademark), but the Special Features left more to be desired. The "Blue Velvet: Special Edition" DVD, however, remedies these regrets tenfold. A completely absorbing documentary about the making of the film, entitled "Mysteries of Love", allows the viewer a rare and wondrous glimpse into the great director's actual filmmaking process. Testimonials from the likes of frequent collaborators Kyle Maclachlan, Laura Dern, Angelo Badalamenti and cinematographer Frederick Elmes are so rich and insightful, you really begin to feel as if you've passed through the red velvet curtains where the gum you're chewing has gone out of style. I wasn't crazy about the attempt to re-construct "deleted scenes" with mere photographs and moody music, but the Siskel and Ebert review from way-back-when is a real hoot. You just can't help but miss Mr. Siskel. Commentary-wise, Lynch himself is nowhere to be found. Fair enough. As far as I'm concerned, the man need not "explain" anything. As for the film itself, words fail me. It is a bad, brutal, beautiful dream I will certainly not mind having over and over again. This is what the DVD medium is all about.

This Movie Mer-Made Me Smile


This is such a great film and it works on so many different levels.
On one level, it reminds me of the universal desire and need for transcendence, to look beyond the confines of our everyday surroundings. Ariel is a dweller of the underworld, symbolically represented by the sea. The sea is replete with marvelous treasures and bounteously provides Ariel with all of her material needs. Indeed, she would never be in want of material possessions because as a princess the whole sea belongs to her. Even so, she yearns for another world qualitatively different from her own, the world of humans above her. This need for transcendence is not prompted by any rational instinct, but the common passion to break through the mundane into a brave new world of the extraordinary. Ariel's aching for transformation and transcendence of the everyday world of the sea is the exact same longing that all people experience whether they aspire on the spiritual level to reach heaven or on a secular level, to revolutionize the world in hopes of achieving a utopia.
The transformation that allows Ariel to become a land dweller requires a sacrifice: she must forfeit her voice to the evil sea had, Ursula. This is excellent symbolism. Kierkegaard discusses how as finite beings, we can only communicate in finite languages. For instance, linguistically, our speech is limited by its form: a Frenchman only speaking Fran?ais can communicate no better to a German speaker than he could to a pelican. But on a deeper level, as humans we can only communicate in the language of logic and reason and yet these systems of communication are painfully limited. We long to speak a universal, transcendent, divine language, but we fall painfully short; if we could speak the language of the infinite and divine, we would no longer be human because as humans we by definition finite. If we as finite human beings were instantly transferred to a terrain of the infinite, like heaven, our limited, finite and human means of communication would render us unable to communicate. With words only, how would you communicate with a transcendent, immaterial being like an angel and how would an angel communicate with you? In other worlds, like Ariel, we too would be without the ability to communicate, without a voice. Remembering how our painfully limited and encumbering our means of communication would be if we ever had to communicate with angels helps to enhance our viewing experience by aiding us in imagining Ariel's plight as our own.
What really struck me about this film is that what can bridge the gap between worlds is not the linguistics of a certain spoken dialect, but the language of love and empathy. Even without a voice, Ariel is able to communicate with Eric the prince through her innate kindness and sympathy. This film is a marvelous testament to the power of human warmth against the alienation, fragmentation and silence of modern times.

good old roxy music


I bought this dvd for the roxy music part. And to be honest from the moment I have this dvd I already saw it 8 times. The setting is great, to see roxy music, as they where in the beginnen, on a small stage, bringing back memory's. Even if you hear the music now, its still as not aged in time. So for the realy roxy music fans I can just say, buy this dvd, sit on your chair en let the show begin.

I loved it. Myself and the audience laughed all the way through it. I'm never going to listen to what the critics say again. They ought to get a life. But then, THEY loved Solaris!!!!I don't want to have to think about a movie. I'll read the newspapers if I want to think about something. I'm at a theater to be entertained and "House" did just that, Thank you.

Enjoy this when I watch!!!


I have this movie, and enjoy it every time I watch it. Not to cutesy, but a great story. Looking at the DVD behinds the scenes of ET is actually what I enjoy watching!! The spaceshipis touched up, and a few extra scenes which we all know are added. I don't think one has to own it to truly enjoy it-rent the 2002 release on video or DVD!
I do watch this when I don't know what to watch, or when I have nothing to do. Good pizza movie.

Don't Look Now - movie DVD cover picture
Elegant Terror


This film, which features Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland at their most young and gorgeous, may be one of the scariest movies ever made.
Based on a Daphne DuMaurier story, it concerns two grieving parents (Christie and Sutherland) who have lost their young daughter in a horrible drowning accident right on their opulent English estate. Mourning beyond reason, the shattered couple goes to Venice, where Sutherland repeatedly sees visions of his dead daughter, always just out of reach.
Through disjointed stream-of-consciousness images, gorgeous views of Venice, lush colors, eerie people with second sight, and one of the most erotic love scenes on film, we feel this couple's anguish, fear and desperate love for one another. And we know, simply by feeling it, that there is great danger lurking just out of sight. But we don't know what it is.
As the suspense builds unbearably, the viewer is mesmerized by the photography, the music, the beauty--and yes, the grief. And when the end comes...well, let's just say that you'll want to leave the lights on for many nights to come.
An absolutely brilliant film.
