This aussie is nuts in the head!


A must have for all Crocodile Hunter Fans. Steve and Terri really know how to educate and make it entertaining at the same time. Steve's Story is great. You will learn all about the Australian and his family in this one. Who can resist them when they are wrestling crocodiles. Get this one before it is gone.

The Best Treatment of Shakespeare yet


Titus blew me away. I thought Julie Taymor dealt intelligently, stylistically and creatively with a play which was, in Shakespeare's time anyway, the equivalent of a mondo slasher movie. Hopkins is superb as the Roman general who goes around offing his own offspring and wondering why he's feeling so put-upon.

Exotica - movie DVD cover picture
Another Egoyan Winner


I like movies that reveal their mysteries gradually. Films like Mullholland Drive, Memento, Following, etc. Like a good postmodern novel (no that's not an oxymoron - there are a few [Paul Auster comes immediately to mind]) these films are non-linear and one is kept guessing about not only what will happen, but whethere central characters are crazy, evil, benign, etc. The audience is kept intentionally in the dark, and thus on edge, and sometimes (as is the case with Mullholland Drive) there is no clear resolution, no tidying things up at the end. Egoyan seems to be operating in similar territory.
Another characterstic that these directors share is that often their characters are not what one would call likeable. This is the case in Exotica. A Canadian Customs Inspector (David Hemblen) is assigned to audit the books of a nervous Toronto exotic pet shop owner. From the outset, we see that this is not going to be your typical CPA/customer relationship. Things get more intriguing when the inspector finds a pistol in the pet-shop owner's drawer and reacts enigmatically.
As the film progresses, the inspector's psyche gradually disintegrates, until finally there is a denouement of denouements at the end of the film. Finally, Egoyan lets the audience in on the source of the inspector's descent into emotional breakdown. No spoilers here, but suffice it to say that the ending provides resolution, without relying on clich?s.
Another satisfying Egoyan film. Thoughful script. Uniformly excellent acting, cinematography, direction. Worth re-viewing.

Stargate SG-1 Season 1 Boxed Set - movie DVD cover picture
The best SciFi on TV


Lost in Space, The Twilight Zone, Charlie's Angels, The Flinstones, Dragnet we all know of storylines that went from one media to another. Sometimes popularity in TV didn't always relate to good movies and visa versa. Stargate cannot be listed among them.
A relatively successful movie went on to become a vastly popular TV show. The writing on this show is superb and demonstrates the research that goes into creating this innovative series. (Apparently, there are Air Force advisors on staff.)
The actors do a great job bringing their characters to life. Many episodes are stand-alones, but minor storylines and season-ending-cliffhangers have allowed SG-1 to grow out of their movie-confined characters.
Those who are new to the series will find this box set fills in much of the characters' beginnings, and add to the current story lines via reference to previous chapters. A fine birthday, Christmas, or what-ever gift to your spouse, friend, or even your older brother!

Great DVD - Ignore review "couldn't get past his voice"


My wife and I bought this DVD last month, and have been doing the first workout almost every day. We both think that it is a great workout, and perfect for an introduction to yoga. It's a tough workout, but Brian encourages you to practice at your own pace. I am really writing this review for only one reason - to encourage you to ignore the review below which says "Imagine a grating, annoying, nasal voice telling you ad nauseum how important breathing is..." And you gawda remembah that da breath is very impooortent..." I almost didn't buy this DVD based on that review, but I am very glad that I bought it anyway. Brian's voice is fine, and his commentary is appropriate and inspiring. This DVD is highly recommended!

Notting Hill (Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
A great movie, with a unique twist


I love to watch violent action movies, but I am still a sucker for the occasional good romantic comedy. I've seen several that don't quite cut it, but notting hill is an exceptional movie. From a guy's point of view, this movie is unique in that the woman (Julia Roberts) makes the initial mistake of treating the man [poorly], and then she has to come begging him to forgive her. Also, the supporting cast of quirky friends is excellent. Through them, you really get to know Grant's character.
Also, the fairy tale story of a movie star falling for an average guy keeps this movie from following the path of cliches that all other romantic comedies do.
