The Grifters - movie DVD cover picture

I have seen this work of art several times in the VHS format and once on DVD (I don't agree with Wide Screen's review of the DVD; I found the cinemaphotogray/lighting to be entrancing and enhancing to the various scenes). Other Amazon reviewers have pretty well covered the plot and some have (rightfully so) observed the fine acting. The final scene between mother and son are the epitome of survival of the fittest, and still leave me slackjawed. Maybe that's why I have seen it more than once and want to watch it again and have placed my order for a copy on DVD. I know it's hard for some people to accept a mother like this, but they are out there, and not necessarily in the world of gangsters. Also, I suppose the ending makes some viewers forget just how caring this mother really is, as when she threatens her son's doctor with death (and we know she can follow through with this threat)if anything happens to her son.

the best military drama since "Black Hawk Down"

If you get past the whole unbelievable parts, and into the story itself, its a dam good movie. Bruce Willis is always a good actor in intense situations movies, with his straight face, spunk, and how is natural charm always gets girls. The supporting cast was stupendous, and really felt for the africans in this movie.

Meet the Feebles - movie DVD cover picture
If you don't laugh at this, you're probably dead.

Literally one of the funniest films ever made, if you like your humor warped and subversive. Frogs hooked on smack and the rat drug dealers who sell to them, a sex-crazed lovestruck hippo, a fly reporter who gives new meaning to the words "taboid journalism", the strangest musical number ever filmed, and the most riotous use of the word "Yippee!" I've ever seen. This is not for all tastes. If you have no problem with any of the above, you will literally laugh until you cry. Easily offended people should probably steer clear. Seeing as director Peter Jackson's next project is a live-action version of "The Lord of the Rings," it is difficult to assess if the man is a genius or insane. For those who are a little daring and have a good sense of humor, give this one a shot.

Excellent portrayal of the rave scene.

This documentary is beyond good, it is excellent, it is beautiful, it is an awesome picture of how our scene is. From interviews with Djs, producers, ravers, and even paramedics and cops, this documentary shows raves and ravers in their true habitat. It also does what many have tried, but failed miserably : puts the media to shame in their coverage of this scene. How much time is devoted to drugs? Maybe 10 minutes, combined...the rest is pure musical content.
Bad points : The editing is a little off at times. Once in a while, the interviewee may get cut off and a word becomes indecipherable, taking you out of the magic of the moment. Also, the music is a bit loud in some interviews, causing the words to fall behind the music, instead of vice versa. Other than these technical flubs, the movie is awesome.
The DVD is jam packed with extras as well, I still haven't gotten through them all. A flyer gallery, extended interviews with some of the DJs/Producers in the movie (Roni Size, Crystal Method, etc.) and a whole scene that was cut out with one of my favorite DJs, DJ Dan, plus a lot more in there too...a MUST BUY!

Better the 2nd time Around

This movie is really stereotypical of teenages: the "groupies" in school, the excess gum chewing, and the all night every day partying. The best thing you can get out of this movie is that it shows the self understanding and tribuations this female goes through to find a satisfying life (also understanding that materialized posessions don't make life fun by itself), in that of her former step-brother.
I find myself liking this movie even more every time I see it...quite a surprise indeed.

What a hoot!

I had the pleasure of watching this movie on this past Sunday night which is Thanksgiving here in Canada... Anyways, my Father, Mother and fiance and I all went to watch the 9pm showing of My Big Fat Greek Wedding... I hadn't heard a thing about it because I don't have cable but my parents had heard that it was great. So taking my chances I tagged along. The first couple of minutes I was wondering if this was going to be any good but was I ever pleasantly surprised. I didn't stop laughing the whole time. Hey I come from a somewhat crazy family of my own so seeing this made my day. Those who didn't enjoy this movie you need to lighten up a little! Nobody is perfect and it is amazing how your family can run things even when it wasn't what you planned. Hey I may not be a Greek but I am half German and well you know! So go watch the movie and try not to tempt yourself to try the Windex cure all! I am still trying to stop myself from trying to use it!

Shintaro Katsu Shines Again

Zatoichi and Yojimbo fans will love this!

Shintaro Katsu has aged and put on some weight, but the Zatoichi wry humor is still there, as is his lightning sword-play.

Toshiro Mifune remains his Yojimbo double-dealing self.

Together, they are lost souls, trying to survive in a miserable world filled with crooks, scoundrels, and murderers. Try as they may, their humanity keeps peeping through.
It is refreshing to have enjoyable story plots instead of the continual escalating into stupid absurdity seen in most sequels these days.

"They drew first blood, not me."

Required viewing for action gurus. John Rambo gets arrested by prejudicial cops and, after having Vietnam flashbacks, he snaps and goes on a rampage. Great action film and I'm sure at the time it could have happened, if it didn't.
