THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS


It is a common misapprehension that animation serves only as entertainment for children, that it is not a viable artistic medium. This film does far more than eliminate those misconceptions, it raises the standard of cinematic excellence.
BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM is by far the definitive representation of the Dark Knight on film, stunningly capturing the bleak atmosphere of Gotham City and the tormented soul of the Bat-Man with intelligence and credibility. The featured voice talent is spectacular: Kevin Conroy's portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman is an unparalelled tour-de-force; Mark Hamill is breathtaking as the Joker.
This is a film which deserves to be seen and experienced. A must, not only for the avid Batman fan, but for every lover of good cinema.

You know you'll buy this movie


These movies are the best ever. Bad Boys 1 has a better story and 2 has hell of better action scenes. The bad thing about the second is that the story really sucked. Its still a good buy though. If you like movies, youll love this.

Just good, low-brow fun


The movie is what it is; raucous and sometimes clever low-brow humor. Parts were tedious (hot tub and boobs) and MANY other parts were just laugh-out-loud crazy. I can't stop giggling when I think of our heros' arrival at bombed-out-looking-not-quite-so-post-Sov iet Bratislava to the strains of an old Red Army Chorus song (which I wish had been on the soundtrack CD). Jamie toting around the Frommer guides, expensive camera, and money belt was scaringly reminiscent of ME in Europe. It's easy to laugh now at how people must've seen me. The soundtrack is nothing special but fun nonetheless. As with the movie, its just something to pop into the changer when you need something light-heartedly fun. It is what it is, and as good as it can be for what it is. SO, as is, for what it is, it gets five stars. I can only wonder how the movie played and the reactions it got in Europe!

one of Dolphs best and well worth watching!


This film is a very good action movie and for a Dolph film has quite a good storyline. The action scenes are lively and the film wasn't overloaded with action scenes otherwise it would have ruined the overall feel. Dolphs performance is first rate and the rest of the cast are excellent even the annoying Cockney bad guy who although was cheesy he was good to watch. All in all this is a quality action movie that far outshines others in the B-movie genre.

Rather more pertinent to today than you'd think!


I have always enjoyed this film but in particular in recent years, as I've listened to both information and technology professionals discuss the likelihood of the demise of librarianship. Bunny Watson fancies that her department is being phased out of the organization, replaced by an "electronic brain" created by Mr. Sumner. Of course, the resolution of the movie indicates that the electronic brain is just a tool for the information professional (and it helps as well by putting Kate Hepburn in Spencer Tracy's arms in the final minutes). But if you've listened to wild-eyed souls tell you that information "yearns to be free", that it is all published and available on the Internet, etc., you'll undoubtedly appreciate the point of this movie. The situation hasn't changed all *that* much since the '50's.

Karl is full of Jesus' love


I could have never imagined that the movie would touch me in such a powerful way. I was in awe for quite some time after watching it. Well, my narrative comes mostly from the Christian perspective. I saw Jesus Christ quite clearly in the person of Karl. Karl's simple but at the same time deeply loving personality reminded me of Jesus. Just like Jesus, Karl decided to sacrifice his life for others. Also, the movie is full of Christian overtones since Karl appears to be a very strong believer in God.Also, the theme of broken families/relationships runs deeply through the script. The parental abuse and its implications are shown in a bright light. The band of "damaged souls" meet at Vaughn's table...is quite a scene.The actor performances were terrific; Billy Bob, Yoakam and Duval should get five and a half stars for their acting work.Great movie, must see.

Great DVD package for sci-fi/horror landmark


This film features one of the greatest scenes of all time starring one of the greatest actors of all times...Jones the cat!
Jonesy is adorable, yet so devious! I'm sure Sigourney Weaver was equally impressed with his plethora of feline talents.
Who can forget Jones leading Harry Dean Stanton to his death and then looking expressionless into the camera as we hear Stanton screaming in mortal pain! Sly, lil devil that Jonesy is! Or how about that fabulous scene where we see Jones emote great fear as the Alien stares at him in his futuristic cat carrier!
I'm no one to fantasize too much, but I like to believe Jones tipped off the Alien as to the location of Yaphet Kotto and Veronica Cartwright, thus sparing his own life in return.
In Aliens we saw the return of Jones, only this time with a different cat...and we could tell! This faux-Jones let loose with a half-hearted hiss, but the fans knew he was nothing but a cheap knock-off!

"A RIVITING DOCUMENTARY!"


Perhaps the most instructive lesson on politics and power ever caught on film. The tragedy and injustice sufferred by "native" Americans over four centuries is crystallized and conveyed in a single event. The story is deftly "told" through flawless directing and each "side" is scrupulously given whatever time it feels it needs to make its case. If you wish to see what parts of the federal government will do when they think no one is watching, then get this film. A great caution in favor of civic participation.
