Fargo - movie DVD cover picture
Are You Serious?


With those accents it is extremely hard to take any of the characters in Fargo seriously. Maybe they are meant to be over the top because it adds to the sense that they are na?ve and too trusting which is ironic because you cannot be na?ve when you are a cop. Maybe this is the brilliance of the movie. The Coen brothers give us these cops with the hardly believable accents and they seem extremely weak and na?ve. Yet they manage to track down the killers in what is a plot that unfolds quickly right before our eyes.
In an Oscar winning performance, Frances McDormand gives an Oscar worthy portrayal of a pregnant woman investigating a homicide. At times she seems a bit slow, and clueless, but in the end she turns out to look like a very capable detective.
The Coen brothers are great filmmakers and this is arguably their best film. It earned them a spot on the AFI top 100 list, watch it and find out why.

Radio Flyer - movie DVD cover picture
One of the most touching movies I have ever seen.


Although the main topic of this film is very emotional (child abuse), this films is still capable of delivering a pure and charismatic, yet not over-dramatic story. Both Elijah Wood and Joseph Mazzello, playing two little brothers, one of which is being abused by their mothers' new friend, make such a excellent performance in this film, that they both should have won an oscar for it. The main story line is presented as the memories of the oldest one of the brothers, now in his thirties. This creates a very direct link between the viewer and the main characters. This, together with with top-quality acting throughout the film, make this one a true little jewel in movie-history.

Pay NO Attention to Negative Reviews


I just watched this classic movie today on a very small and not high quality TV, but even still the cinematography was stunning. I've been studying Sts Francis and Clare, and my studies lead me to this film which I had long since forgotten. Agreed, it's not complex and gripping, but the simplicity of this piece - the portrayal of (brain damaged) Francis, sweet Clare, the political climate, and even the music - can be no accident. Zeffirelli is a master of caturing the bigger picture in subtle ways. I thought it was wonderful, and I wish I could find the soundtrack because I would love to play them myself.

Classic Spaghetti Western


I am a big fan of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns (or any of his westerns for that matter). It was nice to get all three in one collection. The intruge of "The Man With No Name". They are timeless classics.

Jackie Chan's Who Am I? - movie DVD cover picture
Not worth 90 bucks


It's not worth 90 dollars, but sure is worth 20! One of Jackie Chan's best. After I saw Rush Hour, I thought he was losing his fighting skills... Boy, was I dumb! In this movie, he does the best fighting I've ever seen him do before! If you're a Jackie fan, like me, you'll love this movie, and watch it over and over. Rent it... Also rent Supercop!

Absolutely Great Movie for a Romantic Saturday Night


"Local Hero" is a movie I return to time and time again. Knopfler's Celtic tinged score gets to my soul, the cinematography is stunning, wonderful story and dialog, and no way to single out any peformances because nearly all of the actors are right on to the role. (Well, maybe the rabbit with two names stands out -- I love all the scenes involving the hare!). For me, even more than this being arguably Forsyth's best (out of so many choices), it is an all-time 10 best film.
