Austin Powers - The Spy Who Shagged Me (New Line Platinum Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Shaga-DELICIOUS, baby, YEAHHHH!


Anyone who thinks AP2 stinks is either 1) dead; 2) believes Al Gore has a 'terrific, swinging' personality.
The Spy Who Shagged Me may not reinvent cinema verite, but it is a universal panacea for depression (or a nasty market day, or both), delivering Austin's raunchy bad humor, atrocious overbite, swinging scene, Dr. Evil, and the inimitable Mini-Me. Possibly one of the most delightful performances (and disturbing) is handed in by Rob Lowe, who plays the younger version of Robert Wagner's #2 with a little *too* much alacrity.
What could you possibly find in Little Women or Pride & Prejudice that isn't in this movie, baby, YEAH!
God Bless Mike Myers.

Star Wars - Clone Wars, Vol. 1 (Animated) - movie DVD cover picture
Begun, the Clone Wars have.


This is probably the BEST and most ambitious animated series ever created for a specific genre. It helps bridge the gap between Episodes II & III by showing how the Jedi led the fight against the Separatists and young Anakin's maturity to becoming a full-fledged Jedi.
Well-written and drawn, this chapter (along with the second part due out soon on DVD) is the pefect way to visualize things that took place during the Clone Wars. It doesn't tell the whols story, but that's what the novels are for, to fill in the gaps.

Step Into Liquid - movie DVD cover picture
Sensory overload that's good for the soul


We first tried to see STEP INTO LIQUID at the Taos Mountain Film Festival 2003. After waiting in a record-breaking line, we finally made it into the building and shuffled painstakingly a few feet down the aisle. The theater was literally wall-to-wall with people. Not being surfers ourselves, we didn't want to stand up in the aisle for two hours to see the film so we went home. Now that I've finally seen it, I understand the reason for the crush. This movie's worth crushing for.

The variety of people, places, and types of surfing was truly a mind expander. I could not have imagined that many novel types of surfing: everything from kooky to heroic to physically phenomenal to spiritually healing and all points in between.

This is more than just a movie; it's a cornucopia. By the end of the film, my senses were totally burnt out. I couldn't watch the additional footage; we had to go back for that the next night as I just couldn't take in any more splendor.

You don't have to be a surfer, or even a sports lover, to enjoy this movie. I'm neither myself, but I rate this movie as among the best I've ever seen.

A Walk to Remember - movie DVD cover picture
A beautiful love story that really touched my heart


Hard to believe what a director can do with a perfectly decent novel. Nicholas Spark's book of the same name was rendered so shamelessly into a teen weepie that looks like a research effort on all the teen movies of the 90s; it probably has the about a hundred scenes swiped from them to show for itself.
Think Love Story, Carrie, the Grease series, etc etc, perhaps all of the names you can think of contributed heavily to this sachharine drivel about a guy and a girl who start out oh-so-at-odds with each other in high school (she's a nerdy choir girl and he a prankster dude, but of course tides turn) and then perfectly predictable events ensue.
To its minor credit, the film at least keeps away from typical teen movie gags and goes about its business with a predictable rhythm. It's probably a decent date movie, but not something you'd enjoy too much if you're over 20 (mentally).

DVD title: A Clockwork Orange
Productgroup: DVD
A Clockwork Orange - movie DVD cover picture
Are you narrow-minded and lacking intelligence?


Then don't bother watching this movie. In fact, don't bother watching any of Kubrick's films. Stick to "You've Got Mail" and "The Matrix" for your brainless entertainment. This film is nearly beyond words.
A seemingly post-apocalyptic world...a young man (who was but 15 years old in the book) who's greatest source of joy is found in the supposed ills of society...sex, drugs and violence. After being sold out by his droogs, Alex is arrested and incarcerated. He then chooses, despite warnings of the dangers therein, to subject himself to a new "treatment," declaring "I want to be good," in an obviously less than sincere manner. He is then put through nothing less than an array of horrifying treatments to "cure" him of his violent tendencies. The result is a drone, a "Clockwork Orange," who is capable of only what has been programmed. He is subject to revenge and, unable to deal with the repercussions of his acts, attempts suicide. After surviving, the media discovers the horrible results of his "treatment," and expose it for what it is.
A brief synopsis of Burgess's fabulous work of fiction...but words cannot describe what Kubrick has done. It can only be experienced.
Many reviews I've read shows a sort of disgust wit this film, claiming it to be little more than a shock fest. Of course, these people fail to realize the reasoning for displaying such, even disgusted at how the scenes of violence are glorified. THAT is how Alex feels while acting out these crimes. He finds joy, pleasure, excitement! "I'm...ready for love!" To have displayed it for what it truly is would detract from the expressionism of how Alex perceived it. To him, it wasn't a horrible act...it was fun! And to think that the sole message of this film is to feel sorry for criminals...well, I'm sorry that you watched it. You missed it completely. This film isn't about crime and punishment. On the surface, perhaps. But below this lies a bold statement about human nature and relates closely to Carl Jung's statements about evil. Kubrick must be a huge fan of Jung's work, because I see it in most all of his films. Jung believed evil was purely subjective. What is more evil? Beating an old man with sticks or having your thoughts and beliefs programmed into you? Obviously, if you've been brainwashed into Christianity, you'll prefer the former...but consider not being able to choose how to live. Consider being sickened when you see a beautiful member of the opposite sex. Consider not being able to defend yourself from an attacker. Consider a beautiful piece of classical music driving you to suicide. THAT is what the movie is; to me at least. Jung's idea of subjectivity towards evil.
Of course, Kubrick's cinematography is nothing short of brilliant. The scores are appropriate and add to Alex's playful moods.
A word about the nudity. There is, admittedly, a lot. Most of it, however, is represented in artwork. Painting and sculpture. Why does that offend people? Is nudity not perfectly natural? Are we all not nude under our clothing?
And the sex...would any of us be here without it?
Free your minds, people.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The Complete Second Season - movie DVD cover picture
best season of them all


Buffy has had its share of good seasons (and a couple bad) but none surpass the second season. In this season, all the elements come together -- the Scoobies have bonded, the quippiness is dead on, and the romance, drama, and tragedy of the Angel-Buffy storyline are simply beautiful. I had recorded 14 episodes on tape; 10 are in this set. Sensational.

this is definitely the godzilla of old.


We all were looking forward to the Japanese verion with english subtitles and the additonal 9 minutes on this DVD. Well it may be there in the form of an easter egg. On the main menu - you will see "midnight Club" - can you get there? Why is it there??? Does this unlock the Japanese movie version????
All in all the american version is good and Zilla is back the way he should be! NO Sony "atomic lizard" but the man in the suit!
Also like all Sony DVD's this one defaults to Dobly Pro Logic - so do not forget to do the Audio Set-up and put it in Digital Dobly 5.1

This movie made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to stop breathing. I mean, I always though ether was used for knocking out paitents going into surgery. What a trip, one constant stoned adventure scary at times. Make sure you take at least 10 hits off the bong before watching this one
