Felicity - Freshman Year Collection (The Complete First Season) - movie DVD cover picture
THE BEST SHOW EVER!


This show is the best show to be put on the air! For 4 years of my life, I watched Felicity without missing an episode. I felt as though I was right there going to college with the Felicity gang and experiencing everything with them. That's how good the show is/was! I just hope that they make seasons 2,3,& 4 available on DVD soon as well to put the whole show in its rightful entirety. Love this show! Worth buying indeed!

Scarier than the Exorcist!


I have been a horror film fan for years and I haven't came across a horror movie that has scaried me as bad as the Exorcist. This movie has out done the Exorcist and it will send chills down your spin.

Excellent animation and fell in love with Freeman!


I have all 5 videos of Crying Freeman. Excellent animation and there is plenty of action and heart in the story. I found it amazing to actually fall in love with an animated character. I wish there were more. Side note: Found my VHS copies from Columbia House a few years ago.

Animation which deserves recognition


Yeah Samurai movies in Japan are like cowboy movies for us. Great animation, story, and depth makes this series a classic. This movie is a must for fans of the samurai genre. Many people may feel that animation is for children but this is definitly not your saturday morning cartoon. The Hakkenden is based on a story written two centuries ago and has an authentic feel.

Band of Brothers - movie DVD cover picture
SIMPLY THE BEST WW-2 SERIES EVER MADE;CANNOT BE EXCEEDED


I doubt that this World War II series will ever be equalled. Many factors had to be brought together to make an epic such as this. Words fail me in an attempt to praise this series sufficiently. After seeing several episodes on HBO I knew I had to have my own copy of the series in its entirety so I could dissect and review it slowly, part by part, at my leisure.
I bought the DVD package, then bought a DVD player so I could watch it. It has been worth every dollar invested.
The story line and dramatization depicts E company of the 101st "Screaming Eagle" Airborne Division from the time it was formed and trained in Virginia, and all the way through the battles it fought, from D-Day to the end of the European war and the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest at Berchesgarten.
The episodes are pure reality and the events really happened. Most of the dialog consists of the same words as they was actully spoken by the real troopers who somehow lived through it. This series tends to leave the vewer stunned and pensive for a few minutes after the screen goes blank at the end of each episode. This is largely because the surviving troopers, who are now very old men, supplied first hand accounts of the events depicted, the descriptions of what it was actually like. and much of the dialog, word for word still engraved in their memories after so many years. Each of them was given a copy of the script to review, comment on, and correct. The actors were selected, in part, by their resemblence to the young paratroopers, as they were over fifty years ago.
This series should be required viewing in every American high school curriculum. Aside from breathtaking entertainment, it allows the younger generations to see how horrible war can get, and the debt all Americans owe to the young men who fought and died to preserve our freedoms. The only film that even remotely came close was the much shorter WW-1 true story, "Lost Battallion."
The viewer gets to know the men's names, their personality characteristics, their strengths, and their weaknesses. The characters eventually become almost like family to the viewer. When a leg is blown off or a seemingly fatal shot is taken to the head, the viewer is genuinely upset, and later relieved when word comes that the trooper somehow survived in the hospital. This is war reality at its best, without actually being in it.
The cinematography and musical score are sensitive and virtually perfect. The series was filmed in muted color, neither black and white, nor full color, but a perfect blend of both, setting a perfect mood for the time and events. Hanks and Spielberg really outdid themselves on this series. It sets a high water mark for the cinematographer's art in skill, sensitivity, and accuracy.
I would add more praise but must stay within the 1,000 word review limit. Nothing I can say can do it adequate justice, anyway.
Get this series; you won't be sorry. But be prepared for a dose of war reality.

Barbie as Rapunzel - movie DVD cover picture
Beautiful animation of a classic fairy tale.


They've done it again! Now along with the enchanting Barbie Nutcracker, we have Barbie as Rapunzel. As with the former, this movie is a computer animated glory of a movie. Rapunzel is kept captive in the witch Gothel's castle which is beyond a magical wall that no one can see past. With the help of her friends, Hobie the rabbit, and Penelope the dragon (whose father is Hugo, guardian of the castle), she finds her way to the outside world and meets Prince Stefan in a palace garden.
When Gothel learns of her misdeed, Rapunzel is trapped in a tower with no hope of escape. Her silver hairbrush is touched by magic and becomes a paintbrush that forms paintings that can take one anywhere so of course, Rapuzel goes back to the garden in the hopes of finding Prince Stefan. He invites her to a masked ball and while dressing in the tower, she is found out by Gothel.
What happens from there is, believe it or not, a story of love, betrayal, and redemption. I enjoyed it just as much as my 3-year old! There were just a couple of scenes where she was frightened by Gothel (one in particular during the dream sequence where the Prince asks Rapunzel to let down her hair and a giant Gothel captures her in her hand).
All in all, this is another awesome Barbie DVD and like I said in my Barbie Nutcracker (also very worth watching)review, I hope there are many more Barbie movies to come!
