Quite touching and very revealing


I find the movie very touching. The story is beatiful and had a great impact especially on homosexuals . The story has an element which contemporary gays can relate. U will likewise, emotionally carrid away with their relationship.

notorious - hitchcock's best suspense/romance


I'll make this brief, Notorious happens to be one of Hitchcock's best suspense/romance films. The story of a imfamous party girl with questionable country alliances becomes a spy for the usa and goes so far as becoming involved with the enemy for uncle sam's sake. Against her own will and the man she loves (Cary), she does things against her better judgement. I won't say any more, so as not to ruin the wonderful Hitchcock plot. Although i will take acception to Brick King's review that Cary Grant was somehow showing disgust in his scenes with Ingrid Bergman. The dichotomy of an intelligence agent that has feelings for someone who may be willing to commit treason shows a level of acting that cary grant fans were not use to seeing. I think what Mr. Kng's saw as disgust towards Ms. Bergman was a geniune character struggle by Mr. Grant, worthy of an oscar nomination.

Fabulous series. Why can't every episode be released?


Maverick is an awesome series. The episodes selected for this DVD are among the most popular. I just have one question: why can't every episode be released on DVD as season box sets? Other westerns are being released as season box sets, and it's utterly disappointing that Maverick is not. I would snap up all the episodes as box sets in a heartbeat. Warner Brothers should get a grip. I will not buy the episodes piecemeal like this.

Unfaithfully Yours


Preston Sturges conceived, produced, wrote and directed this comic symphony at the peak of his creative powers, deftly combining fast, stinging dialogue with moments of inspired physical comedy. Harrison is in his element, with all his trademark cantankerousness on full display (reminiscent of a much younger Henry Higgins) and Darnell's an ever tolerant vision. Look for immortal comic Edgar Kennedy as a music loving detective.

Is There Anything Else I Can Say?


I recall my parents religiously watching this epic mini-series back in the seventies. As a child I could'nt appreciate it and would always leave the room when it came on. Imagine my surprise when 20 years later I happened upon a single episode and was instantly hooked. What I saw had such an impact on me that I promptly went out and bought the entire series, then cleared my schedule and watched all 13 hours from start to finish. Since then I have watched the series many times over, and look forward to seeing it many times again. Forget about multimillion dollar blockbusters with state of the art special effects. This series shows, as the RSC have consistently shown time and time again, that not only do they turn out the finest actors on the planet, but that these types of film are no match for raw acting talent, an interesting story and engaging dialogue. Although the production was primitive by todays standards and the budget shockingly low, none of this detracts, but rather adds to it's magic. It still stands today (at least in my mind anyway) as the most convincing, authentic portrayal of Ancient Rome during the Claudian Dynasty. Beginning at the end of the Republic and just after the Julian era. The story (loosely based on historical fact) chronicles the lives of the key individual's within the Royal bloodline as they plot against, and betray one another in their lust for power. The characters are vividly and intimately brought to life, literally leaping out of the History pages to become real people with all of the weaknesses and faults of the rest of us. Characters come and go with such rapidity that you really have to pay attention, no sooner arriving on the scene than dissappearing, the victim of anothers cruelty, jealousy or greed. This is all played out against an incredibly authentic backdrop, capturing both the romance of the era, and the paranoia of being a member of the Imperial household. Truly an absolute masterpiece. Anyone fascinated by Ancient History should buy it. Alternatively, watch it and you soon will be! If only the Royal Shakespear Company would turn their immense talents to a story about the exploits of Alexander the Great. Truly

Wonderland - movie DVD cover picture
Wonderland DVD-A must watch!


I was very intriqued with this film after I heard that it was being made. Unfortunatly, it went into a very limited release in theaters and was forgotten by me until I happened to see it in a local movie rental shop.
"Wonderland" is about the Wonderland Ave Murders in Hollywood in 1981. It is also a story about the decline of a legend (John Holmes) and the horrible toll that drugs can cause. What is most shocking about the film that it was based on a true story and most of the film was accurate. These murders were about as shocking and the Sharon Tate/Manson Family Murders, but little is discussed about them. The movie guides us through the month period, both before and after the murders and gives different points of view about what might actually had happened and who was responsible for the murders. It also gives us a very shocking glimpse into drugs and it's excess and the means that some will go to feed their habits.
The film is at it's best when it tries to take us back to that time period and it's use of "TV Guide" pages and newspaper headlines in the backdrop when showing the timelines helps us that were alive back then to remember that summer in which the murders took place. Also, Val Kilmer does a great job in playing John Holmes and Kate Bosworth is equally as good as his teenage girlfriend, Dawn. Dylan McDermott does well in the film, as does Lisa Kudrow as Holmes estranged wife, Sharon.
Anyone expecting to see a documentary on the porn industry, this is not your movie. Go watch "Boogie Nights" for that. Little is mentioned about it, other than referring to John Holmes celeberity status. This is more about drugs and excess than porn.
All I can say is that it affected me in a way that no movie had since "Seven". Though the two movies are much different in almost every aspect, the shock I had at the end of both films were the same. Also, the LAPD Crime Scene video was one of the most shocking pieces of film I have ever seen and it should come with a disclaimer before watching it. The John Holmes documentary "WADD" was also very interesting and a must see.
Excellent film... go watch it!

Firefly - The Complete Series - movie DVD cover picture
Great combination scifi and western that was prematurely axed by network morons


It's not like Firelfy needs another good review, but I've been watching my DVDs that I just got last week, and am compelled to add my recommendation to all those that have gone before. I never heard of this show till a friend lent me one of the four DVDs a few weeks back (summer '05), It's a very smart show; very creative, with believeable and sympathetic able characters set in a galaxy of humans who seem to speak either English or Chinese. A mix of humor and drama, sci fi and western themes, and is true to both. Too bad the nitwits at Fox pulled the plug.
