Que lastima


Soy un fan de Pink Floyd y en especial de The Wall.Creo que es una de las realizaciones mas grandiosas en cuanto a musicales se refiere. Hace unos pocos dias me gane un DVD Player para ser utilizado solo con discos para zona 4 (latinoamerica). Quisiera saber si ahora o en un futuro estara disponible el DVD de The Wall para reproductores zona 4. Seria grandioso que se pudiera conseguir, pues solo entre mis amigos hay varios que les gustaria adquirirlo. Si estoy hablando solo de mis amigos cercanos, que se podria decir de todo latinoamerica?. Creo que seriamos millones los clientes potenciales. Les agradeceria que pudieran dar una respuesta a esta inquietud. My best regards.

Not just an American Beauty


I cannot recall when was the last time I have seen something so brilliant. A masterpiece that touches you wherever you are.. Not just in America.. And thats why its not just an American Beauty.. This is the movie you will watch and no matter where you are on this planet, you will still be able to relate. What made this more possible is the genuis script and how it was written, the incredible way it was directed and the outstanding acting from everyone who appeared on screen even for seconds. Kevin Spacey is one hell of an actor who played a very difficult role and mastered it as if he has been living it for the past 40 years. Kevin, you were incredible. Annette Bening has managed to make everyone resents her. Doesn't this say how masterful she was? I can go on forever. Everyone in this movie has contributed significantly to the enjoyment each one of us in the movie theatre was feeling. I watched it yesterday, will watch it again today and I am sure I will go again and again. I am just sitting here waiting to see how the Acadamy will rate this movie... whether it will touch every judge's life the same way it touched the lives of all those who have seen it. Please Hollywood, indulge us more with such sensations.

P.D. James - A Mind to Murder - movie DVD cover picture
A powerful story of mind games as well as murder!


One interesting fact about this video, is that no writing credits are given for the adaption of P D James book that this is based on. Viewers should not expect this adaptation to be a faithful reproduction of the original. Even the murderer is different! But I'm not going to tell the prospective buyer who it is, so they will need to buy it and find out for themselves. Having stated these facts, I still found this video an excellent and enjoyable experience. As expected, Roy Marsden again puts in another solid performance and portrays Dalgliesh as no other actor can. The supporting cast is top class, with Cal Macaninch giving a wonderful performance of a highly disturbed young man. The murder victim, has no friends and lots of enemies. The Steen Clinic for the emotionally disturbed, depressed, alcoholic clients, and its staff all have the potential for a 'A Mind to Murder' and Dalgliesh is handed the unenviable task of trying to find the culprit. The final scene has the potential to submerge the viewers and leave them literally breathless. An excellent production, full of intrigue, pathos, and of course the action packed, unusual conclusion.

Rocky III - movie DVD cover picture
A Fight That Proves Comebacks Come True!


After winning the title from Creed, we see Rocky defend his belt ten victorious times. He decides to hang up the gloves after the tenth title defense, but a challenge from the number one contender, Clubber Lang (played suprisingly well by Mr. T), wills Rocky to defend his title one more time. However, he became civilized, he let publicity go to his head, and he didn't train with the heart we see in the first two films. He loses to Lang in the bout, and then loses his great manager Mickey to a heart attack. Now, Rocky is down on his luck, and he feels that he doesn't want the boxing life anymore. However, Apollo Creed,(played EXCELLENTLY by Carl Weathers)shows up in Rocky's life, and talks him into challenging a rematch with Lang. Creed becomes his trainer, and personally, my favorite scene is the race on the shore of California. With Apollo's help, Rocky was able to get back "The Eye of the Tiger" to re-win his championship. Though the climactic final fight is only three rounds, it is filled with action-packed punches that could fill fifteen. A great film, and a must-see!

A Beautiful Mind (Full Screen Awards Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Another Great Russell Crowe Performance


"A Beautiful Mind" allows the audience to experience the mental hell that is schizophrenia. This is accomplished by the sure-handed direction of Ron Howard, the clever screenplay of Akiva Goldsman, and as mathemitician John Nash, the on-target performance of Russell Crowe. Mental illness is difficult to portray on film. Rarely is it done properly and usually it results in either over-the-top portrayals or in highly mannered performances. Crowe manages to portay it with the minimum of mannerisms. To Crowe's credit, Nash is not an entirely sympathetic character here. There are also clever devises employed by Howard and Goldsman to portray schizophrenia that I will not reveal here that are quite effective. "A Beautiful Mind" also has an excellent ensemble cast. Jennifer Connelly is compelling as Nash's sympathetic wife, Alicia. Paul Bettany and Ed Harris do good work as a pair of Nash's friends. Solid support is also supplied by Josh Lucas and Adam Goldberg as Nash's colleagues as does Christopher Plummer as Nash's psychiatrist.

Great Vinyasa Yoga Video


This video is great for the beginners and the advanced beginners. I started taking a Vinyasa class and was unable to coordinate my schedule with class times so I looked for a video to supplement my practice at home. What a great choice. Baron Baptiste takes his time to explain the poses and provides the mood that is needed to practice yoga at home. I highly recommend this DVD.

One of the Best Films Ever


This film goes down as one of my all time favourite comedies. The humour is infectious but is also tampered with the sombre realities of war, a great balance made.
I actually saw this film for the first time just weeks before enlisting for national service (a small coincidence of course).
The cast was absolutely perfect & all characters had great chemistry throughout the film. It gave the impression that they must have had a ball of a time during filming. Christopher Walken is hilarious but then again so was everyone else in the wacky platoon.
All in all, aside from the somewhat plain looking cover which doesn't do the film justice at all (especially the terribly lacklustre intro), it is a highly recommended film.

Informative, Entertaining and Exciting


I saw this video under the old title "Last Man Standing". For someone who trains in the Gracie style of jiu-jitsu, this movie presents the viewer a unique opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes footage of Rickson Gracie's preparation, philosphy and training. For all viewers, it is well-done, has exciting footage and is fun to watch.
