The Day the Earth Stood Still - movie DVD cover picture
One of the All-time Greats


This is thought-provoking science fiction at its finest. It is also an extremely entertaining film. True sci-fi aficionados would be remiss in their studies if they have overlooked this one. It is comparable to an art history major that has never seen nor heard of the "Mona Lisa".


If your sci-fi tastes lean towards "it got blowed up real good" type entertainment like "Independence Day", then this is not your picture. It is in boring black and white not shiny, distracting color and moves at a slow, steady pace building tension through tedious, attention-demanding elements such as character development, subtlety, fully realized dramatic situations and higher philosophic ideals. It is a film designed to make you think. It is the cinematic equivalent of being forced to read a book. If you have ever been "forced" to read a book, stay away from this film. It will only stimulate your under-used cerebral cortex and give you a headache.

Please, please, please... Do not rate the show by the studio. If you are unhappy with the "Universal" - that's unfortunate. We all agree - the show is the best ever! And boy, were we all anxious for years waiting for this incredible show to come out on DVDs. Lets all enjoy it...

A great film...

This is my absolute favourite play of all time and is a wonderful movie. It's lighthearted and fun and humourous. Hopefully no one will take it to seriously, for I do not believe that that wasthe spirit in which it was written. I love it and I think everyone should see it.

Used Cars is excellent!

In my opinion, Used Cars is great because the humor is so strong. The characters sink to extreme lows to con people into buying their cars, and it's very interesting to see what's next. The actors seem to really have fun with what they're doing, and Jack Warden does a great job of playing both of two extremely opposite brothers. At the very least a FUN movie. Not for everyone, especially those who don't appreciate bad taste, but one that everyone should see at least some of. An underappreciated title that will hopefully get a wider audience on DVD than it did on tape.

great movie!!!!!!!!!!!(but who the heck is that guy?)

this is the stupidest thing i've eva heard, listen to this.

Ive heard people making really stupid critisizm like saying Bill murray sounded boring and lazy. Guess what? GARFIELD DOES SOUND LAZY AND BORING! I think a lot of people would like this movie. My 13-year old brother and my 9-year old friend loved it. I thought it was hilarious! This is a must-see movie. But a lot of people say they dont like it, so i suggest renting it first. By the way, Im 11

i mean what a load of rubbish so shut up kid
id recommened this dvd to everyone.

Ladyhawke - movie DVD cover picture
A medieval masterpiece

Ladyhawke is one of the greatest films ever made, in my opinion. It is not campy nor predictable, as many historical pieces have been. The storyline is imaginative, the players phenomenal (especially Matthew Broderick in his finest role and one of the truly great roles of film in general; he should have won an Oscar, imo), the cinematography rich and stunning, and the directing right on target. My only nit is the music. Though I have enjoyed Alan Parsons's work in the past, his style doesn't mesh with the mystical mood of this film, particuarly the opening piece. The music becomes less noticeable the further you get into the movie, probably because the story is so compelling. If medieval mysticism draws you, this is a must-see.

Props to Ms. Garner.

Elektra was not a bad movie. jennifer Garner is the only one that could have done this role. She is amazing and i liked her so much better in this movie than Daredevil since she did not show what she could do in it, but now she had the chance to show everything and i must say i was very impressed. The Fight scenes are great and Garner is even better. Buy this DVD, you won't regret it..

More! MOre!

I usually watch the sci/fi movies (which everyone thinks are boring). BUt this one is a mixture of sci-fi- you know it's all theoretical- and TRAGEDy; It's like a movie because in some other world, it was real. It makes you yearn for the dying, natural earth as it once was millions of years before man came with his chemicals and pollutants - that we can only hope for now.
The whole thing was like a tragic, dreadful reunion with the dead - they would never be here in life, yet I'm still fascinated... with their beauty.

WWE Wrestlemania XX - movie DVD cover picture
One of the Best Wrestlemania's EVER

Overall, this WrestleMania displayed amazing talent of all the WWE superstars. To make it better, it was the 20th anniversary of a sports spectacular and held at the most Famous Arena in the World: Madison Square Garden.The matches were:
The Big Show vs. John Cena-U.S.ChampionshipThis match was a well deserved win for John Cena who went through all odds to attain his first WWE Belt. 3.5/5
Chris Jericho vs. ChristianAn upset. Trish turned on her "boyfriend" for a guy like Christian. The end was basically a set-up that resulted in Chris Jericho getting an unnecessary punsishment and Christian and Trish kissing. Long and action filled match to say the least. 3.5/5
Booker T and Rob Van Dam vs. La Resistance vs. Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade vs. the Dudley Boyz- World Tag Team ChampionshipRob Van Dam and Booker T dominated most of the match and their domination resulted in them retaining the World Tag Team Championship. 2.5/5
Rock N Sock Connection vs. Evolution's Randy Orton, Ric Flair and BatistaVery interesting match that ended in the wrong way. It seems like Mick isn't as good as he used to and didn't give it his best. Exciting match with shocking parts throughout the match. 3.5/5
Inter-Promotional Playboy Evening Gown MatchSmackdown!: Torrie Wilson and Sable vs. Raw: Miss Jackie and Stacy KieblerHot match that made WrestleMania full of excitement, a little short though. 3/5
Open Cruiserweight Elimination Match-Cruiserweight ChampionshipWay too short. Rey Mysterio should of won out of all the others. Cheap ending. 2/5
Inter-Promotional MatchSmackdown!: Brock Lesnar vs. Raw: Goldberg- Special Guest Referee Stone Cold Steve AustinA lot of mind games and intense power shown throughout the match. Pretty short though-- If you add up all the wrestling time together and subtract all the intimidation they used. Goldberg came out on top by using two spears and one Jackhammer Slam to end Brock Lesnar. Strange that Stone Cold stunned Goldberg at the end though. 4/5
Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty vs. the Basham Brothers vs. the APA vs. The Self-Proclaimed World's Greatest Tag Team- WWE Tag Team ChampionshipPretty good match with a cool celebration at the end of the match. All teams gave it all they got to come out on top. 3/5
Victoria vs. Molly Holly- WWE Women's Championship- If Molly is to lose, she has to shave her head baldThe match was OK with aggression dished out by both women. Nice ending. Molly's head getting shaven bald by Victoria. She got what was coming. 3/5
Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle- WWE ChampionshipA lot of technical wrestling used in this match. It was a long match and both guys did whatever they could to win the match. Eddie may have used the cheap way out of this one and it seemed like Kurt Angle had the ropes but the referee didn't see it. But, the end result was Eddie Guerrero retaining the WWE Championship. 4.5/5
Inter-Promotional MatchSmackdown!: Undertaker vs. Raw: KanePaul Bearer returns! Old-School Undertaker is back! He has risen from the dead and beat Kane with a chokeslam and a tombstone. A little too short of a match, I expected it to be a little longer. 4/5
Triple Threat Match- Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit- World Heavyweight ChampionshipExcellent match. May have been no Disqualification but they all ended up bleeding. All the participants gave it everything they had for the belt. Triple H tried to fight out of the Crippler Crossface, but I guess the lengthy time that he had it on him caused him to tap out. Emotional ending with Chris Benoit finally winning what he has been waiting to win for his whole life: the World Heavyweight Championship. Long-Time friend Eddie Guerrero who retained his title earlier in the evening celebrated Chris Benoit's victory along with him as they both would walk out the arena as champions. 5/5
This WrestleMania also showed a sign of Edge's return to the WWE.
Overall this night was a 5 hour roller-coaster that brought the roof off Madison Square Garden.
This is a must buy DVD that celebrates the greatest sports spectacular of all time- WrestleMania XX!
