Anna and the King of Siam - movie DVD cover picture
Rex is King!


I don't know what Hollywood was thinking when they asked 6ft. 1 Rex to play the role of the king of Siam. The king was shorter and darker, still it is great to see Rex take his native language and hack it with a broken dialect("everybody speakie English"). There is a romantic notion in the air between Anna and the King but it is always ruined by the King's temper. He wants Siam to be modern but still finds it necessary to have concubines that must worship him or die. Irene Dunne is a strong Anna who falls in love with all the kings children and tries to help Lady Tuptim, a new wife to join up with the head wife Lady Thiang(Linda Darnell who played Rex's wife in Unfaithfully YOurs). She continually butts heads with the king for a house outside the palace, even having the staff chant "there's no place like" home until the King goes nuts. They seem to get along until the King puts Tuptim to death for loving another man. This puts a major rift between Anna and the King especially when her son is later killed. Her only comfort is the eldest son Chulalonghorne who later becomes King of siam and truly modernizes the country when he tells that no man should bow. The first man to stand up is the King and previous King's aide played by Lee J Cobb. Rex is regal and pompous(expect anything less) and highlights include: the death scene, him beating his secretary of state for siginig there's no place like home, his eyeing Linda Darnell when he receives her as a gift and when he meets other foreing dignitaries at a party he thorws to show how modern he is(he sees a rather ugly women and throws lots of water in her face assuming it would improve her looks as it was custom to merely sprinkle a womans face. In fact the woman looks similar to the real Anna if you read the book and look at the illustrations.)

The Haunted Mansion (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Romance and Mystery


This movie has two main messages. 1-The romance battle that Edward Gracy has since he lost his love so long ago, and the love that Jim Evers has since he has a wife that he doesnt want to lose. This causes him to find the courage to face his fears and save his wfie and children.
2-The basic mystery of the house which leads everyone to wonder what happened and that not everyone is as they see. For example the butler and Madame Leota.
And last but not least is the chemistry the actors have with eachother. They act wonderfully together. Especially Eddie Murphy as Jim Evers and Jennifer Tilly as Madame Leota, the disembodied spirit in the crystal ball.

Brigadoon


Ah, Brigadoon. What can I say about this one? It was an excellent film, I don't care what anybody says. Brigadoon is a town in Scotland that comes to life just once every 100 years. Gene Kelly and Van Johnson are Jeff and Tommy, hunters who get lost and are looking for some food and a place to stay. Then they see Brigadoon. Van Johnson was just hilarious as Jeff, the cynical guy who just can't bring himself to believe that all this craziness is really taking place. Gene Kelly portrays Tommy, a guy who falls in love with Fiona (brilliantly portrayed by Cyd Charisse). He has to make a decision at the end of the day, whether he wants to go back to New York and leave Fiona and Brigadoon behind forever, or stay with Fiona and leave New York forever. A difficult decision for anyone to have to make. Just a wonderful romance with some beautiful dance routines. Go to the movie store and buy it. If you like romance/musicals, you won't be disappointed.

I'TS ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!


What took so long!!?? I'm glad I wasn't on a hunger strike or holding my breath, I'd be dead by now, considering it took longer than usual for the 2nd season of any series to be released. I thought that the company responsible for releasing the "Forever Knight" series had changed their minds about letting it out. "Forever Knight" is my favorite vampire series of all time. Hey guys?? Let's not take so long on releasing the 3rd season, OK??
