Fallen Angels - movie DVD cover picture
The best use of celluloid in the 1990's


Wong Kar-Wai's "Fallen Angels" is visually grabbing and emotionally powerful. If you have been brain-washed to accept the garbage Hollywood puts out every week, then you will be mesmerized and blown away by what a real director can do. WKW is unmatched by any Western director for his ability to photograph the human soul. See this film. Don't miss it.

It Happened One Night - movie DVD cover picture
A classic that deserves to endure


A spoiled socialite (Claudette Colbert) flees her wealthy father (Walter Connolly) and heads for New York to marry a rich playboy (Jameson Thomas) against her father's will. The whereabouts of Ellie Andrews and the reward for her return become the stuff of national headlines, so when recently fired reporter Peter Warne (Clark Gable) recognizes her, he decides to stick close so he can write the story. Naturally, romance follows, but it's a bumpy and hugely entertaining road to get there.
This is an absolutely wonderful film. It's such a shame that so many people are not interested in watching an old black-and-white movie. Good work is timeless. Gable and Colbert have wonderful chemistry and are both hilarious and touching. The rest of the cast is excellent as well. Even though the story is set during the Great Depression, it doesn't seem dated at all. The wisecracking between characters is sharp and well-written (by screenwriter Robert Riskin); there are lots of laugh-out-loud moments during this film. It's also pretty racy and suggestive for its time, with a genuinely affecting climax. Another level of interest is added by the careful attention that director Frank Capra pays to the depression-era milieu; Colbert's character really doesn't understand the plight of the common man, but Gable's hard-bitten reporter is all too aware of the hard times that people are going through. This adds a fascinating sociological dimension.

Great Movie !


The movie was increadible. For those of you who love epic movies, this is one that will keep you on the edge of your seat especially if you love romantically based epic movies. The chemistry between Leonor Varela and Billy Zane is more than evident. They both play outstanding roles that are passionate and seductive. Timothy Dalton plays a good role, he really captures the big ego that Ceaser probably had. This movie takes you back in time and will make you wish you were alive during that era. The music, scenery, and costumes get an A plus. As for the history well it's Hollywood not history class it's meant for fun and fantasy and the movie definitely captured that. So check out the movie for Billy (who is FINE!), Leonor who is beautifull and plays a good role, and especially for their romatic scenes (not to mention the music, set, and costumes!) which make the movie well worth buying and renting.

THX 1138 (The George Lucas Director's Cut Two-Disc Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The movie that started it all.


First there was THX 1138, then came American Graffite, fallowed by Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope.This often forgotten classic is the film that started it all for Gorge Lucas. With the help of his friend Francis Ford Coppla, Lucas turned his award winning short student film into his first major Hollywood production.And now it has returned - fully re mastered, with a crisp clean picture and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound track. This Special Directors Cut Edition is sure to further wet the apitites of Lucas fans every where.Starring Robert Duvall as THX who lives in future underground factory city, talks to Jesus online, and is under constant in forced sedation. He then stops taking the drugs and truly discovers the world he lives in and the mechanical things he builds.A truly great film that must be seen to understood.

Garland and Kelly shine


This movie is a great fell-good love story. I've always thought that Gene kelly and Judy Garland have the most amazing on-screen chemistry and its ashame that they didn't do more than 6 films together. Judy, as usual gave a great performance in all her numbers. May they be playful, riviting, heartbreaking or just plain knock-outs, she did it great! As for Gene Kelly, though he was not thrilled with the project, never let it show. He gives absolutly amazing performances(like always) dancing in the barn with Judy and in his newspaper dance. Although my favorite is the "you wonderful you" number where Judy and Gene dance and sing nice"n"easy under low lights on an empty stage. It's so beautiful seeing Gene holding Judy in those gorgeous arms of his. He holds her like she was the love of his life and he never wanted to let go. You can almost feel those hugs just watching them. I recommande this movie to everyone and especialy Gene and Judy fans.

Leprechaun - movie DVD cover picture
Your Luck Just Ran Out!


Lucky charm or little devil? Fairy tale turns horror story as Ireland's mythical midget steps into your nightmares in the wickedly sinister chiller, "Leprechaun". When JD Reding and his daughter Tory buy a summer house on the site of a Leprechaun's stolen gold, their dream holiday turns into a slice of sheer terror as he tries to reclaim his treasure. Helped by local boys Nathan, Alex and Ozzie, Tory takes on the terror of the evil Leprechaun as he unleashes a horrific and hilarious trail of magic, murder and mayhem that leaves the whole town reeling!
Leprechaun is a surprisingly good Horror/Comedy film. Film criticts have said that this film is trashy and a waste of time (not to mention it's rating were not too great). At times it can seem like that - but most of the time it's just a great movie to watch. And it's sequels were just as great! Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis make Leprechaun one of the funniest horror movies of our time. BUY IT TODAY!

Magnifecent Ryo-Ohki


The Mihoshi special was really good but it was way too similar to Journy Through Time and Space(Tenchi Universe.) Ayeka was again supposed to marry Tenchi and that's the last thing most of us would want to see. I wasn't too happy about seeing Washu as a bad guy. The episode was not bad...don't get me wrong, I just expected a new plot.I reccomend this video for TENCHI fans and non-TENCHI fans. It is good.I love Ryoko in this episode especially because she's adorable! Enjoy the video^_-!

A friend got me hooked on this show earlier this year, in the third season, so I hadnt seen many of the older episodes. This set is great- it includes the best season of C.S.I. This show has great, quirky characters, dark humor, interesting forensic information, and intriguing whodunit plotlines. The best episodes are definitely:
