R is for Return ~.^


I think this movie, along with S and SS truly mark the return of a great anime cartoon. Sailor Moon, unlike Dragon Ball Z, is more about the girls relationship as friends and is much more emotional, but sitll keeps some hard core fighting in there for ya ^_^

IT'S ABOUT TIME!


When Trick was released, it was during a time when the gay genre was emerging. In fact, in the late 90's it suddenly became chic to be gay. A play, movie, art exhibit could almost guarantee an audience just by having a gay theme. Sadly, most of the films were either formulaic, poorly acted, exploitation of stereotypes, or were really soft-core porn disguised as art-house indies, yet we as a community flocked to participate because finally there were messages for "us" regardless of how banal they were. Trick, however, was different. Trick was so different and so refreshing, I actually went to my local movie theater and saw it no less than five times! I now own the movie and watch it at least once a month. I'm not going to bother to go into the synopsis of the movie, as others have already done so. What I will say is that it is a sweet and funny romantic comedy, with star caliber performances (even from Tori Spelling...I know!). Yes, one may watch this and say...a middle aged queen belting out tunes at a piano bar is a stereotype, and they would be right, however between the script, the actors and the director, the audience sees something more than just stereotypes. The audience sees fully dimensional, well developed characters. The story is well crafted and the dialogue is sharp, funny, and most satisfying of all, real. And for anyone who hasn't run into a drag queen in the men's room...your life is not complete!

Kung Fu - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
I Am A Man


Amazing Series - 5 stars

To the poster below - Bruce Lee was 75% Chinese, his mother was 1/2 German. You can tell, somewhat, by looking at him.

Not much else can be said about the Kung Fu series that hasn't been said below, however... It's not about the acting as much as the importance of morality and the value of life. If you're looking for an action flick, you will not find it here. While there is some Martial Art, always in self-defense, the series focuses on philosophy and wisdom rather than how to knock the aggressor senseless.

If all you want is action, buy a Jackie Chan movie.
If you're in for the hope that you might gain some knowledge about what it means to be a Shaolin or a Kung Fu Master you will end up watching all 15-16 episodes in a single sitting.

Great


Speed, directed by Jan De Bont and starring Keanu Reeves, is indeed entertaining though I wouldn't put it in the category of action. I believe that an "action movie" must have:
1. A lot of gunplay2. Some explosions3. Fist fights
Speed does have some explosions though hardly any gunplay or fist fights. It's more of a thriller than an action film. Keanu Reeves plays Jack Travin, a cop. He is always fighting his arch-nemesis Howard Payne (played by Dennis Hopper). In the first fifteen minutes of the movie Travin and his partner Harry (Jeff Daniels, My Favorite Martian) stop an elevator from crashing and save everyone onboard. Payne, who had devised this plan, is mad so he wants to get back at Travin. So he plants a bomb on a bus, stating that if the bus goes under 50 miles an hour it'll explode and kill everyone onboard. Travin gets onto the bus and tries thinking of ways to stop the bomb but unfortunately some passengers get into a fight and the driver is killed. A passenger (Sandra Bullock, Demolition Man) takes over and now they must keep the bus at 50 m.p.h or else it'll be the last day of their lives. This movie is very entertaining though a bit predictable and for more suspense, I recomnend the second one, Speed 2: Cruise Control. I enjoyed this movie though I though it was a bit too long. 3 stars.

Dr. No (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Rollicking Jamaican adventure


Dr No, the first and one of the very best James Bond movies was released in 1962, and was filmed in London and in Jamaica.
The film begins with the entrance of three blind Jamaican beggars, who shoot a British diplomatic official, before brutally murdering a young British secretary, operating the switchboard at British intelligence in Jamaica.
This sets the scene for a violent battle between British Secret Service and the mysterious forces who have committed these horrible murders.
Enter British agent James Bond, played by the irrepressible Sean Connery, who won immediate fame in this role, setting the stage for forthcoming Bond performances, who must go to pre-independence Jamaica to find out who is behind this all and stop them!

A rollicking adventure of action and intrigue follows, with Bond foiling the minions of the crime syndicate SPECTRE, which include a leggy Chinese siren, who invites Bond up to her apartment in Jamaica's Blue Mountains, while planning various lethal traps, and the perfidious Professor Dent, who learns that trying to kill 007, can be fatal to your health!


The character Professor Dent, a seemingly mild academic, who is in reality a cold-blooded killer, is certainly not hard to fathom, given the plethora in the next 40 years of left-wing academics, who glorify terrorism and genocide!

The climax of the movie comes with the entrance of the absolutely gorgeous Honey Ryder, played by the exquisite bikini clad Swiss actress, Ursula Andress. Who can deny that Ursula was one of the 20th centuries sexiest actresses, after watching her waltz around the deserted Caribbean beach setting , in a skimpy bikini , showing off her perfect golden body , with a face of the sweetest innocence!

Bond, together with Honey, and the ill-fated Jamaican colleague Quarrel, must battle SPECTRE's private army, including a diesel run, fire spitting metallic dragon, before being captured and being brought into the underwater compound of Dr NO (Joseph Wiseman), who suavely explains to Bond his plans for world domination. Bond must foil Dr NO's plans of international sabotage, and rescue Honey in a way only 007 can do.

Set in location in London and Jamaica.

The Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne - movie DVD cover picture
Like fine wine...


I'm not a rabid Eagles fan, but who can deny the incredible collection of talent not to mention the natural chemistry they have in the studio and on stage? These guys know how to put on a professional show, and this one is captured with terrific camera work and an awesome soundtrack. If this DVD isn't a seat on the stage, it's the next best thing. The song selection is robust, drawing from their solo efforts as well, and also includes a couple of James Gang tunes updated and made their own. Their performance is effortless and flawless, quintessential Eagles from start to finish. There are few surprises, but the musical detours they do indulge can be appreciated for that very reason.
I would mention, just as an observation, that the editorial review casually dismisses the absence of Don Felder. I take exception to that. His replacement gets the job done with equal precision, but the little bit of playfulness shared by Don and Joe isn't there. The concert doesn't suffer for it, but I like Don Felder. His multi-faceted talent is missed by this fan.
Anyway... Are you still reading this?? Buy it!! Now!!!

Like the soundtrack? You'll love the video.


I'm only thirteen years old, and Les Miserables has GOT to be my favorite opera there is. When I was in London, I almost got to see it, and I really wish I had. My advice to you: If you like the soundtrack, you'll LOVE the video. Trust me. But, you don't have to take my word for it.

Rush Hour is the best movie I have ever seen in my life!


Chris Tucker thinks he is funny by shouting loud, he's not and his double standard racist jokes arent either. This aside, the film is quite good.

Vampire Hunter D - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best early horror animations


Vampire hunter 'D' is the tale of a hunter called Doris who enlists the help of a possibly superhuman warrior. She wishes to protect the town from the onslaught of Count Magnus Lee and his army of demons and vampires. What makes vampire hunter'D' so notable is its use of characterisation which makes the whole anime that much more enjoyable. For example the Count is not just another mindless enemy but one who is reflective and intelligent. The animation has suffered in recent years as the title is now over ten years old. This does not matter, because the plot is well scripted and the pace and music fit the film perfectly. The dubbing is fair and the overall quality of the film is very high. This is thoroughly recommended if you enjoy horror, science fiction or action anime. Even so it should be enjoyed by all fans of anime. A word of warning though. The bloodshed reaches new hights of gore and extremity which is rarely matched even in today's anime world. If you enjoy this type of anime then check out Darkside Blues.
