The Aviator (2-Disc Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Some Men Dream the Future, He Built It


One Man knew the silver screen,money and of course avation. He directed Hell's Angels, he dated Katie Hepburn and invented the Spruce Goose at TWA, he was Howard Hughes. From legendary oscar "NOMINATED" director Martin Scorcesse and starring Leonardo Dicaprio in his most triumphfant and stupendous performance. He portrays the man who built the future. Starring supporting actress winner for this film, Cate Blanchete as the immortal and legendary Katherine Hepburn, starring Kate Beckinsale as Ava Gardner, Alec Baldwin as Juan Tripee, CEO of Pan Am, Gwen Stafani as blonde bombshell Jean Harlow and Jude Law as swashbuckler Errol Flynn. one of the most exciting and brilliant films of the year and mabye the decade, the best Hollywood figure bio since "Chaplin" Leo and Cate are marvelous, Eastwood may own the director oscar, but he doesn't own success as a director. it's an interesting, thrilling gripping life story that truly tells you what you haven't heard. I didn't see Ray, but Leo should have won. Howard Hughes had a huge impact on Hollywood,women and avation and this is his story. If you like Hollywood figure biographies this is the best bio I've seen,but Chaplin comes pretty close. See the romance,the fame and the greatness of the Avatior. "He owns Pan Am, but he doesn't own the sky"

Ladder 49 (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
This movie shows us how hard fire fighters work.


Ladder 49 opens its audiences eyes to the reality of a firefighter's job. It shows us how hard they work to save peoples' lives; they risk their own.
The movie's about a fire fighter (played by 'Gladiator''s and 'The Village''s Joaquin Phoenix) who is trapped in a burning building and through out the movie he relives his life just when he became a rookie fire fighter, to his first outings with his future wife, to the first time he went from hosing down fires, to rescuing a man, and to the birth of his first child, and to his rewarding of successful achievement. In the end something tragic happens, which will lead to you crying your eyes out, and finding a new respect for fire fighters.
You will be totally blown away from this movie, this is some of its leading actors' best performances.
You'll laugh, you'll gasp, you'll cry, you'll have a good time at this movie.

Wonderful movie, and terrific acting!


I just wanted to clear one thing up. An earlier review was titled something like "Groundbreaking Hollywood treatment of schizophrenia". I'm sorry if I quoted that incorrectly. However, this movie is about multiple personalities, not schizophrenia. They are two entirely different mental illnesses and should not be confused. This show is about a woman with mulitple personalities. Wonderful acting and a very engrossing movie!

Memento (Limited Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Super, Original, Perfect.


Memento has been a cult smash ever since folks had a chance to see it. It didn't do well in the theatres because nobody knew how to market it (the trailer is truly awful), but it has done excellently on video due to wonderful word of mouth.
Definitely pay a few bucks extra for the special edition. The main disc is weak on the extras, and doesn't have a DTS soundtrack (DTS is much better than Dolby 5.1 if you have a DTS-decoding receiver).
What is really engaging about this movie are the twist and turns along the way that lead to a very satisfying payoff. The mind-bending going backwards in time bit is an interesting idea, but could easily have been a ponderous disaster in less sure hands than Christopher Nolan's. Each of the 10-minute flashback seens begin and end in exactly the right places. Each new revelation and twist leads logically to the next.
The movie's weakest point is that, in the end, you don't like any of the characters. They are all selfish bastards, in a sense. Hey, but that's film noir for you. If you didn't like The Usual Suspects or Reservoir Dogs, you probably won't like this one. I however loved those movies, and found Memento to be endlessly fascinating.
I'm just hoping for a Memento prequel. (There's definitely room for a few).
Enjoy!

Tru Davies is Truly Entertaining


This show is an excellent drama. I read that Fox is only making 6 new episodes for season 2 which is crap because this show deserves much more than that. Fox seems to specialize in creating great shows and sticking them in horrible time slots so that they don't get the numbers Fox is looking for leaving Fox to pull the show. Fox should instead rearrange their schedule, or not judge shows so harshly. It's not Eliza's fault America is too stupid to realize this show is amazing. If anyone wanted to miss out on this by watching friends or survivor let 'em, they're the ones missing out.

The Private Eyes - movie DVD cover picture
Love it!!


Anyone who has ever watched Don Knotts and Tim Conway in action will understand that the quality of the script has absolutely nothing to do with how funny it is. The movie includes all the old gags, but with a man like Conway who can make a sneeze funny, they're all brand new jokes. Don Knotts plays the straight man (sort of) to Conway's witless wonder and you find yourself remembering the funny parts over and over. The ending is a little bit of a stretch, but you really don't care. You just remember why Santa doesn't visit Conway anymore! Don't miss this one; I saw it when it first came out and I still love it.

Sunday in the Park with George


If you are looking for an experience that will change your life, this is it!!! "Sunday" is a musical for those who will challenge themselves to understand all of cerebral subtleties that are written into the fabric of this work.
Stephen Sondheim's score is equally matched by James Lapine's masterfully created book. These two gentlemen have left no stone unturned. Every "T" is crossed and "i" dotted.
This performance of "Sunday" to me, is the quintessential performance of any work of art in existence. Bernadette Peters gives a compelling, emotional performance, and Mandy Patinkin is nothing short of pure genius!!
If I could give this DVD more stars I would!!! This is a must have for any true fan of musical theater.

Pokemon -  The Movie 2000 - movie DVD cover picture
Around five times better than the first movie...


After reading several reviews about the original Japanese version, I learned that this movie was a LOT better than Mewtwo Strikes Back. I agree with them. This had more of a plot to it and it seemed much more adventure-some. Again, 4Kids re-composed the music for the English version, and after listening to some of the Japanese soundtrack, I'll have to say that I like the English score better than the Japanese one.
Although they didn't state the collector's name in the movie (which is Lawrence III), he is the typical villain. Out to get what he wants, using any needs neccesary, not caring what happens to anybody else.
This is a VERY good movie. Even those who aren't fans of Pok?mon should really enjoy this movie!
