Wonderful DVD Features


This movie stars Anthony Hopkins, Anton Yelchin, Hope Davis, Mika Boorem and David Morse. It is based upon a book by Stephen King (which I found hard to believe because it lacked all that Mr. King is well known for; but I did not read the book and gave it the benefit of the doubt because all adaptations do not turn out well).
The story line opens in the present day with a man named Bobby Garfield surveying his old childhood home and reflecting back on his 11th birthday. Upon his reflection, the film backtracks to 1960 and a period of time in little Bobby's life. Thus enters Ted Brautigan (Anthony Hopkins) a very mysterious man gifted with psychic ability. Ted and Bobby become very close. Ted warns Bobby to "beware of The Low Men" dressed in black, riding in long black cars and traveling in packs. During Ted's hide out from The Low Men, his psychic abilities brings about a rape acknowledgement, healing, forgiveness and saves a life. The movie gets off to a slow start, but the mystery and shadowy imagery of The Low Men will hold your attention. The storyline gives meaning to the old saying that people come into our lives for either a season, reason or lifetime.

Super Super Size me!


In the manner of Michael Moore, Spulock has created a wonderful documentary. Funny, revolting, scary and suspenseful are just some of the many and conflicting tags you could put on this film. A should-see for parents; a must-see for anyone on a diet. So much information, you need to see it more than once. Can't wait for the DVD, so I can have my own copy

Well Worth Every Penny


If youre a John Mayer fan, than this DVD is an amazing investment. It contains so much live concert and displays so much of his talent- its amazing. It also contains Bonus Features, like the 'Morning After' segment. Its an interview with him inside of his hotel room, and it really gives you a better view of him as not only a musician- but as a down to earth person. You get to know him as a person (what sections of the newspaper he reads... what he likes about performing etc.)John is performing in CT on August 20, and I couldnt get tickets. This DVD allowed me to see what a great artist John is, and just how talented he is as a musician. It truly gives you the concert experience. If youre considering buying it- I say go for it! You wont be let down.

Xena Season 5: A Wonderful and Amazing Journey


Ah, the Xena Season 5 Videos have finally hit the public. After ordering all six seasons on customized, catalog videos,it is nice to see them available to the average people.
Okay, so let's get started. Season five of Xena: Warrior Princess was an amazing ride. From the dark opener "Fallen Angel" to the light hearted "Kindred Spirits" we saw many emotions of joy and sadness. Xena's child was born and hunted down by the God's. Kevin Sorbo, a.k.a. Hercules, made one last appearance as the Son of Zeus in "God Fearing Child," where he tried to save Xena's child, Eve, from death. The season ended with the dramatic "Motherhood," one of my personal favourites. Eve is hunted down by the gods, is reformed and entered into the religion of Eli, and Gabrielle is nearly murdered by Xena.
With a landmark 22 episodes filled with laugter, joy, and sadness, this is a video set that you do not want to miss. Order it today from Amazon.com!...

Wow -- "Victory Through Air Power" on DVD!


When I was about 13 years old around 1978, our school teacher had our class watch a 16mm print of the first part of Disney's "Victory Through Air Power", which is all in animation and is about the history of aviation. I loved it. In the decades since, I'd always clearly remembered the shot in which an early WWI fighter plane pilot accidently shot up his own propellor with his machine gun (before the technology to synchronize machine guns with propellers was developed), and went down comically weeping.
When I became interested in Disney animation several years ago, I hoped to find a copy of that one. But I learned that it had never been released on any videotape or videodisc format, and that my only glimmer of hope of ever seeing it again was to buy a 16mm film projector and find an old 16mm print, and probably pay a lot for it. More than any other, this title had me seriously thinking about doing that.
It's been some time since I've kept up with new DVD releases. I was shopping at Costco today and stumbled across some of Disney's "Treasures Limited Edition" tins. I already had some of those, but I noticed that these were titles I hadn't seen before. I tossed the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck titles into my cart, passed on one that was about futurism, and dug through to make sure I hadn't missed any. I could hardly believe my eyes when I picked up one that said "On the Front Lines" and "The War Years". My first thought was to wonder if it included that aviation history I had seen in 1978. I turned it over and yes, it said it included not only the aviation history part I had seen then, but the entire film!
Somewhat in a daze, I went straight to the checkout line, then straight home, then straight to the DVD player. Even my wife watched it with me, I guess because she could see how excited I was about it.
I loved it in 1978 on 16mm, and I loved it again in 2004 on DVD. It's at once an interesting history, attractive animation, and fun entertainment. I was also interested to see the realism in animation of planes I had learned about over the years.
The live action part was also very interesting and well worth watching, if a little on the tedious side at times, especially for my wife. It's certainly very interesting to consider how this movie may have changed the course of the war, or more precisely, this movie may have brought enough attention to the book that inspired it, and to that book's brilliant and prophetic author, to change the course of the war.
When I looked up this title on the web, I was a little startled to find that I had bought it on the very day it was released!
It looks like Disney has let the earlier "Treasures Limited Edition" tins go out of print, and undoubtedly they will do the same with this title. If you have any interest at all in aviation history, and/or in WWII, and/or in rare Disney animation gems, this disc is a must-have, just for Victory Through Air Power. (I haven't even watched most of the shorts yet.)

Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - movie DVD cover picture
Wicked Cool!


Guy Ritchie, I envy you. What other filmaker could make a film so exciting, hillarious, cool, and thrilling as Lock, Stock, & Two Smoking Barrels? Tarentino? His time has come and gone. You are the wave of the future. LS&2SB is a masterpiece of wickedly cool proportions. Yet, between the unbelievably wonderful and mind boggling camerawork, the shining performances (in particular, Nick Moran and Vas Blackwood), the twisting and turning storyline and the rollercoaster soundtrack (which all of you must buy, and do get the British version) one element is fresher than all. Your incredible, street credible diolouge is snappy and crisp and this is one more reason to get the DVD version. It comes with a translator. Bloody good idea, you Rob Roy you! Good luck on Snatch'd. I await it eagerly. But for now LS&2SB is your masterpeice. Also if anyone knows were I can get your real first film, "Hard Time", let me know by posting a message indicating where I can find it. Thank you and God bless!

Magnificent


Wonderful! I never knew how great this movie could be. Mozart's endless classic opera, Don Giovanni now has been made into an amazing movie. It may not be the best version ever, but this is one of my favorite operas. I used to think that operas done by the Kulter company were no good, but this one was different.
