Quite the Catch


As the movie begins, we see a fantastic fish swimming in a fantastic body of water, as a man's voice tell's the tale of how he caught said fish, on the day of his son's birth. Imediately, I was excited to watch this film, since as a fouteen-year-old following the craze of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, and had to search many theatres to fine where it was showing. We ended up at this two-screen theatre down in our area with big squeaky blue seats. People behind me keep talking, and yet the cinematography and enchanting imagination of this movie truly had me captivated. Not only did I love the plot, I was entralled by the characters and the father-son tension. I was endeared to Ewan McGregor's character from the start where he thanked the fish for giving him back his wedding ring and transitioned to letting the fish go so his son could have a similar outlook-changing experience and catch an uncatchable fish. I would reccomend this to all, but I do believe a certain portion of people would not appreciate this film, and many amy not comprehend it's comlicated double-plot line.

Jigga Rules!


Anybody branding not only this DVD, but also Jay-Z's music as cacophony & rubbish, shows not to know one single thing about hip-hop or about Jay's mission & message. Admittedly, I didn't really get into hip-hop until my early-20's and Jay-Z's material, as well as hip-hop, is not for everybody to understand and appreciate, but if you approach the genre with a closed mind, like I used to, there's no way you'll be able to enjoy it. Jay's music was the turning point for me as far as the beginning of my full appreciation for the genre. This DVD is a testament to the man and his career and is a historical document presenting the style's best performer at the top of his game. Jay has disproved Sickboy's (Trainspotting) theory that all great performers' skills diminish, and sometimes totally dissapear, as they get older. On the contrary, Jay has every right to claim that, like Michael Jordan did by retiring while still a World Champion and an NBA Finals MVP, he left the game on top of it and at the top of his skills. Long live the King of NY! As we all know, like Jordan did after retiring in '98, he'll be back sometime soon. I just don't know if I can keep on waiting for a new CD. He spoiled us dropping albums "early & often".

haunted by spirits


The bottom line is that this movie is a benchmark in animation. Just like Akira changed the way people look at cartoons, Spirits Within changed the way I look at computer generated movies. It is one of the most beautiful things I have seen recently. There are some who would argue that computer generated movies lack the "soul" of live action movies. I say it had more than enough. To me it really was poetry in motion, etherial, like a dream. It had action and romance, which all movies like to have, but it had more.

An American Tail - movie DVD cover picture
"Somewhere Out There..."


An American Tail is one of the few animated films I'm so fasinated with. It has everything in it that I want from an animated movie. What I want from an animated movie is a story that has something to say to the adults in the audience. A story with characters that have personality to them and characters you feel for. I got all that from this movie. When I watched it last month, I found myself almost crying with a number of emotions. At that moment, I felt like I have never been more affected by an animated film before or since. I love the main character of Fievel. I felt for him and felt the same things he was feeling about being separated from his family. He has touched me in a way that no other animated character has done before or since. I wish this movie would be re-released in theaters and to the public again.

Kiss of the Dragon (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Jet Li's next best film since "Romeo Must Die"!


"Kiss of the Dragon" has just about everything that you would expect in a Jet Li film...action, gravity-defying martial arts, and more! Jet Li is brilliant as Liu Jian, a Chinese undercover agent who is on the run in Paris, France after being framed for a drug operation that went terribly wrong. Bridget Fonda is excellent as Jessica, a streetwise hooker who enlists the help of Jet Li's character in getting back custody of her daughter, etc. And I have to give some credit to Tcheky Karyo in his performance as Inspector Richard, a good cop gone bad in his pursuit of finding Jet Li's character and using whatever force is necessary in capturing him, etc. All in all, I think that "Kiss of the Dragon" will be a great DVD must-own when it is released. This is possibly one of the best Jet Li movies since "Romeo Must Die", "Lethal Weapon 4", and his current release, "The One".

Groundbreaking Horror


"Halloween" is the first genuinely scary horror film I hadthe displeasure of seeing as a 10 year old boy. I stillhave nightmares to this day of Michael Myers' simple, plain whitemask that was a stroke of genius on Carpenter's part. it'san image that has become synonymous with terror! With groundbreaking camera work, fresh actors, and goreless killings, this was a new blueprint for horror films. Following in the footsteps of Hitchcock's "Psycho," Carpenter created an extraordinary environment as dark and merciless as Michael Myershimself. This is a film to be felt and experienced. "Halloween"may end as you view the final credits, but Myers lingers justoutside your window for years to come.

Bloody awesome...


I didn't what to expect from the film as I've never watched any of QT's other films. However, I couldn't help but enjoy the humour injected various scenes and then seconds later Uma slices and dices her opponents. It wasn't as gory as I thought it would be, however it still has some explicit scenes depicting some of the killings. It is mostly about revenge, however, it is not revealed why Bill attacked the bride in the first place. Hopefully Vol. 2 tells us that.
