Pretty good!


I saw this movie and thought "Ok thats nice but ..... there is just something missing" I thought the video was a little BORING and was short on action ! The enemies were a little dumb "SnowDancers" ? Thats sounds just a little bit lame you know ? I saw the dubbed version so.....It might be a little different from the erm...undubbed one ! But anyways I thought that the movie was a little weird ! If you saw the last few episodes on SailorMoonS dubbed you would know what I mean ! the HolyGrail is destroyed ! And in the movie its still there ? And working ? And another thing ! Uranus,Neptune,& Pluto dont EVER join the Inner's in the S Season !! (again a dubby) This movie really lacks ALOT of well....shall we say ...planning ?

Wonderful story, touching production.


You don't have to like chess to love this movie! Based on a true story, the characters of this family drama have a realism which draws you back to this movie, time and time again. This is a great family flick, and you can't help but cheer on the characters as they learn about this child's special gift. Uplifting, great production, and a must own movie.

DVD title: The Conversation

The Conversation - movie DVD cover picture
"We'll be listening."


The dreadfully real technology revealed during the Watergate investigations lent a special relevance to Francis Ford Coppola's film about wiretapping. However, the film's astonishingly prophetic script was written five years before the film was made and the Watergate scandal broke. It is Coppola's most successfully realized work to date. In "The Conversation", Coppola combines the technological monsters we know are real with those we suspect to be real and focuses finally and most ruthlessly on one person no one thinks much about: the man doing the listening.

Harry Caul (Gene Hackman), is a security specialist who performs wiretapping and eavesdropping operations for powerful clients. A requirement of the job is a profound personal detachment. A professional, he is a solitary soul; he relates most actively to the world via the technology at his disposal. Even his hobby, playing the saxophone along with jazz records, relies on his interaction with impersonal strangers. He evinces a neurotic fear of precisely what he does to others; he is absolutely phobic about his privacy, keeps an unlisted phone number and shuns all social contact, the exception being his girlfriend (Teri Garr). Throughout the film, regardless of the weather, he wears a transparent raincoat, as if to sanitize himself from his environment. At confession, he admits to stealing newspapers. Only a virtuoso performance by Gene Hackman incorporates these striking contradictions within a plausible character; Harry's career forces him to maintain an elaborate and at times ridiculous system of repressed instincts, rather like Maupassant, who disliked the Eiffel Tower so much that he ate lunch in its observation deck every day so he wouldn't have to look at it.

As a thriller plain and simple, the film is without peer. It has a slow and careful pace at first that accelerates to moments of indescribable fright. There is a bathroom scene that will make you afraid ever to use indoor plumbing again and a twist ending so completely surprising and convincing as to change the meaning of every scene in the film and make the denouement of "Psycho" seem predictable in comparison. Coppola was not the first filmmaker to present a nightmare world of humans without humanity or human rights. But his nightmare is the most convincing because it is the world in which we live.

Classic Looney Tunes!


I urge every parent who has a child who loves cartoons to pick this collection up! Many of the TV stations when these were aired during my childhood (late 60s-early 70s) cut them up to air more commercials. It is a joy to see them uncut and in pristine condition on DVD! Share the good FUN with your Family! It is not many things that families can enjoy together now....My highest recommendation!

These DVD's are the BEST


As a homeschooling parent of 8, I've been there - done that with most educational products out there. A friend recommended these videos to me, and it was only her fervent insistance that they were the best thing out there that made me willing to buy them. I have to say I have been REALLY impressed! I was hoping my four year old would enjoy them, but I have to admit they have captivated the entire family. (Even my 13yo ds stops to watch when he enters the room. Shhh, don't tell that I told you.) The songs are very catchy, and the kids really do learn from them. I was shocked to find my 4yo and 2yo were talking about the sounds different letters made and trying to draw them on paper, and my 2nd graders even benefitted from the reviews of long and short vowel sound words. I've not tried the other Leapfrog products, but these videos have impressed me enough to make me want to try them.

The Shawshank Redemption - movie DVD cover picture
HOPE


The Shawshank Redemption is without a doubt the best movie I have ever seen. It is the story of friendship,time,and most importantly, hope.
Andy Dufresne, played superbly by Tim Robbins, is a man sent to prison for the alleged muder of his wife and her lover. While in prison, he meets Red, who is played brilliantly by Morgan Freeman. The unlikely friendship that forms between these two men who come from such diverse backgrouds is a part of what makes this movie so incredible. They become each others best friend and confidant; something that everyone in prison could use.
Another element that plays such a key role in this movie is that of time. Not only does this movie span over twenty years, but time itself plays a key role in the plot of the movie. Although the time Andy spends in prison takes away a large portion of his life,in the end you might want to call it his best friend.
The music of this movie is what ties all the emotional elements together. Thomas Newman does an amazing job with the soundtrack. His music transports you to the movie's place and time. It has the power to make you feel what the characters are experienceing. It also progresses chronologically to stay with the changing years.
But the one elment that makes this movie so truly remarkable is the theme of hope. It gives us something to be excited about and reminds us to continue to hope in our everyday lives. Never does Andy Dufresne lose hope that he will survive his struggle. Red, on the other hand, thinks hope is a dangerous thing. But Andy pursists and wins Red over by the end of the film. I think Andy says it best when he states, "Hope is a good thing. Maybe even the best of things. And no good thing ever dies."
