Chicago (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Best in a long time.


I bought this having not seen it in the theatre. I was procrastinating on watching it because I was not sure what to expect. If you've done this also, let me inform you that you've made a big mistake. Wonderful casting, detailed costumes, riveting music, luscious sets and academy award winning acting. The performances in this film are excellent. Each person performs their own musical numbers and it is incredible to watch. Very sexy indeed!
The special features include an audio commentary track which is very interesting and feature length. It has a deleted musical number and behind-the-scenes featurette. I was concered about buying this per the fear of "purchasing and having a 2-disc edition come out" would strike again. The features here are worth your money, even if another edition should hit the shelves.
113 minutes of pure brilliance.

The Talented Mr. Ripley - movie DVD cover picture
Wonderful, Exciting, Intelligent


I just can't even begin to comprehend all of the stellar reviews for this absolute rubbish of cinema. It has no redeeming qualities at all. I can, on the other hand, understand the negative ones. Unfortunately, those people are smart and choose not to express this disbelief of this slop in so many words. I, on the other hand, was so riveted by how God-awful this movie was, I must tell you all about it.
The movie is about a fairly poor off gentleman named Tom Ripley and his plight for something great in the world. Tom, played extremely dully by Matt Damon, seeks out fortune by trying to convince a young spoiled brat (Jude Law) to obey his father's wishes and come back home to America. It helps that this request by the father of the boy sends Tom to Italy and with his boss's money. So Tom gains the friendship of this wealthy boy and his beautiful young girlfriend (Gwyneth Paltrow). Let me try and express this so-called "talent" of Tom. It is seducing rich people into giving them all their life. Well, it works and Tom ends up fooling people into thinking that he is now Dickie. This leads to a duller than dish water game of bouncing around beautiful young millionariess (Cate Blanchett) and Dickie's ex.
I really don't have the time nor the inoculation to try and express more of boring storyline, but would just like to rant on the acting of these big names. The performances are so lackluster that you become shocked that many of these names are well known. Even Cate, whom I really like in many movies, can't carry off her performance as a pampered American princess type. I could hardly tell if Gwen is playing yet another Brit or just a snobby "colonist". The only thing even worthy of being called acting is the somewhat threateningly cleaver character played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. He might really be something big soon. However, one the reasons this film was so exclaimed was the big debut of Jude Law. Personally, I don't get it.
There are two big questions to ask after reading my review. Why did so many people enjoy this film? I have no idea but I think it could be just the scenery but with a story so inspiring and just plain not entertaining, you can't even be thrilled with the tourist attraction angles. Take the trip to Rome if you have to because it will be worth it. After that, why was this movie so praised by critics. Personally, I feel they got paid. Just kidding, but seriously I think it was some kind of love affair/admiration for Law whom gave this movie such buzz. His performance isn't the best, but perhaps a far 2nd to the sly Hoffman. The same kind that there was for Damon a few years ago. Better stop listening to those critics all the time.
So I guess this "next biggest thing since Sliced Bread" is very moldy and green. I'm not shocked. Maybe there is hope. Maybe I'm cynical and just didn't see the magic. Then again, I was watching with someone else and they agreed whole heartdely. Keep in mind this is the same man that brought us that little cinematic gem "The English Patient" Almost an unfair comparison as to which is worst, but this takes the cake. At least there where a few good things about that story. So unless you like that kind of trite film making of visual beauty over a good story and acting, this is one to get but I have a fair idea that most people with any taste for a real chiller will be bored to tears with this film. I have seen B-movies that make this look very bad. At least there is a camp quality to those films while this one tries to hard and just fails on all counts. Where is Morgan Fairchild when you need here? I must recommed you avoid this and save yourself some pain. There are two kinds of movies I remember. Really great ones and awful stinkers. I hope this venting of my feelings on this one will help me get over it.

For all of you Batman Enthusiasts, like myself, This is for you. The quality of the DVD takes you back to when you first saw it in theaters. If you never saw it, well then you are in for a treat! Wonderfull animation and voices by Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil. A must have for any animation or Batman fan! Better than any of the live action Batman films... well maybe not Tim Burton's. But you'll love this one!

The Day the Earth Stood Still - movie DVD cover picture
OK, I am a sucker for great scifi, and this is GREAT


This may have been the first truly great scifi that I saw as a child. I recall that it was puzzling to me - how an alien cd actually be a "good guy" even as he threatened Earth. Well, having bought this in DVD, I can say that this is a fascinating and subtle film, in which the power of man is questioned by a being from a superior civilization. He comes to Earth with a message, and is confronted by the realities of the Cold War - fear, the will to violence, and closed minds. Somehow, he manages to investigate Earth and establish relationships, which may - and only MAY - lead to the salvation of a troubled planet. There are great and simple special effects as well as an aurterity of style that perfectly matches the story.

Maybe I am a sap, but I found it a deeply moving experience to watch this magic film, which totally enveloped me in its mood and message. This is firt rate hard scifi, which is not easy to find in film.

Warmly recommended.
