Disney's The Kid - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best Disney films I've ever seen.


I think THE KID the funniest and most touching live action Disney film since COOL RUNNINGS(1993). Bruce Willis plays Russ Durrets, a 40- year old "jerk" who meets the eight year old version of himself. With the kid's help and a little lesson from his girlfriend, Russ becomes a changed person. Filled with laughs and moral lessons, THE KID is a film for everybody. Don't let the Disney name scare you away.

Fantastic


I found this concert DVD to be exceptional. No glitz or tricks, just a display of exceptional talent. The images are compelling and the sounds are fantastic. Of course a big part of the appeal is Nanci Griffith herself. She transmits such warmth and honesty through her performance on this DVD. The filming reminds me of an Austin City Limits program, showcasing the music. And as she points out in the concert, she doesn't change clothes even once during the performance.

A Must See


This classic movie is great. There are some absolutely wonderful shots of San Francisco how it used to be in the late 50's early 60's. A super mystery. I'm glad I have it in my collection.

Love Actually (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Awsome, actually


"Love,actually" could be described as a typical romantic comedy, like so many others that come out each year, only... it's not!!It's a mix,actually. A mix of a bunch of romantic stories that connect in one way or another. The stories cover a wide range of today's relationships and you're bound to see yourselves in some of them. There is the girl who is in love with a guy from office but she is too cowardly to reveal, the married guy who is in love with a younger girl from work, the divoced writer who travels to a small village to write his new book and finds true love,Britain's Prime Minister who falls in love with a secretary, and many others. It was a very moving film. I can't wait for the DVD. It goes without saying that I'm gonna be one of the first to buy the DVD.If you like "Notting Hill", "Bridget Jones's Diary" and "My Best Friends Wedding" you are sure to find this movie more than good. Awsome, actually!

BEST MOVIE EVER!!!


This is, by far, the best piece of cinema ever to hit the big screen. Matt Stone and Trey Parker have done it again. Their brand of humor had me and the other five or so people in the theater laughing our heads off, (how could the theater have been so sparsely populated?). From making fun of Kim Jong Il and Michael Moore to funny songs, this movie has everything you could ever want, and if you don't see this movie several if not infinite times, the terrorists have won.

STUNNING GOOD


Liam Neeson has to be one of the best actors around today. His rendition of Jean Valjean was superb. I remember having to force myself to stay awake when I had to read this book back in school but sat right at the edge of my chair while watching the movie.

The Fifth Element - movie DVD cover picture
One of the greatest movies I've ever seen!!!


I've had this movie ever since it first came out and I love, love, love, love it!!! Bruce Willis is just great, Milla Jovovich is the lovable Leeloo, Gary Oldman was perfect as Zorg, and of course Chris Tucker as Ruby Rod was just... excellent!! These four actors (and actress) is just what I think the greatest ever! This movie has the right blend of action, adventure, and humor. The DVD doesn't have so many special features but you can watch in either wide screen or full screen. And the image and sounds are so clear. I can watch this movie over and over and over. If I could, I'd rate "The Fifth Element" 10 stars! Watch this movie!

DELICIOUSLY FUNNY!!!!


This Movie is HYSTERICAL!! The depiction of an Itallian-American family couldn't be more accurate! As an individual who's father's side is from 100 percent Itallian herritage, the similarities are not only familiar but EXACT, - the crying, the eating, the crying, the eating, the laughing, the eating, the laughing, the eating, the LOVE, the eating - THE PASSION - THE EATING!!! While family, food, and emotion are the focus throughout this movie, we realize we all have a litte DeNapoli in all of us - whether from Itallian herritage or not! As a wonderfully written and directed, movie, Fatso brings heart, soul and body simultaneously at the forefront of familialarity and HILARITY !!! Do yourself a favor and stop reading my review and Pre-order this movie on DVD! Thank you Anne Bancroft for this wonderful family classic - May u shine in heaven.

A great concert


This DVD is absolutely wonderful! The music is varied and well-played. Ive seen Andre & Company in concert and this DVD is almost as good as being there. The "chapter" of the Andre Sisters is a classic. The quality of the DVD is amazing. I play it frequently and I am charmed all over again by these very talented and lively musicians. The ladies colorful gowns are a welcome change from the plain black gowns that most female classical musicians wear. Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra are proof that classical musicians dont have to be stodgy and solemn.

Deep Blue Sea - movie DVD cover picture
Deep Blue Sea


For as long as one can remember, the horror genre has been the least respected in the world of film. Maybe it's because of the tilt to campy black humor the genre has taken for the past two decades. Or, perhaps, because of the formulaic manner in which the cast members can either be predictably the first ones to be killed off by whatever manner of menace, or seen to be the ones that have what it takes to survive. "Deep Blue Sea" manages to stave off expectations on who the victims will be, but the lack of a plot line and extraordinarily bad special effects eventually sink the movie's aims.
British actress Saffron Burrows plays Dr. Susan McAlester, a bio-engineering ingenue who convinces her superiors at her research firm to give her one more chance to perfect a vaccine that will cure Alzheimer's Disease, using mako sharks as the test subjects. She is granted her wish to continue, but is to be watched by executive Russell Franklin (Samuel L. Jackson, the only name of note in this mostly cast of unknowns). There is one catch: The sharks have been given artificially larger brains by Dr. McAlester, making them harder-thinkin', harder-runnin', higher-killin' machines.
Dr. McAlester arrives onto the mid-ocean research facility with Franklin to run the ultimate test: using one of the test makos' brain fluid against a strain of Alzheimer's. Predictably, though, there's trouble on the horizon in the shape of a large storm approaching the facility. After the test is proven successful, the test shark manages to sever the arm of a lab assistant. The facility's crew (led by Carter, played by Thomas Jane) are all finding their life's work going downhill after that, when a rescue chopper gets dragged by a shark into the facility's surface area via a steel rope used to take the injured man up, and hampers the attempts by the others to get to the research area's surface, and finding opportunities for possible rescue. But the rogue test shark, and its two equally fierce companions, stand in the way.
The main problem with the film, as a whole, lies with the sharks themselves. They are almost exclusively computer generated, and look very much like that. It has none of the panache of "Jaws"' electronic shark. The makos roam with incredible speed, munching away at human flesh at almost every turn of the movie, a seemingly ethereal sight. Also, we know the sharks are smart; but their advancement (recognizing the threat of a gun in their snouts, violently smashing out surveillance cameras, dragging a rescue copter into a building, setting off a chain of explosions throughout all levels of the research building) defies all logic! In the end, the implausibility of the sharks' behavior dooms whatever intentions the movie had to be a "thinking person's horror flick."
The rapper L.L. Cool J. makes an appearance as the research facility's cook. It is amazing to watch him playing a character who at once spouts Scripture (thereby attaining the nickname "Preacher") and profanities, almost in the same breath. Such inanities do little to endear his character to the audience. The other characters are even less human than the sharks, showing little remorse for their more unfortunate compadres who are victimized by the scaly carnivores. In fact, the moral relativism displayed by the characters take much away from their humanity, thereby dimming the sympathies of any audience with heartbeats for these protagonists.
It is, after all, just a horror film...one that just manages to stay away from all formulas. This is perhaps "Deep Blue Sea"'s only claim to fame, and only redemptive quality. If the film were a shark, it would be a lemon.
