Throw out your old T2 DVD and buy this!


First off I must admit I was very disappointed that this DVD was delayed in Canada, and I had to drive down to the States to purchase it, I just couldn't wait. But after getting a great price and finally finish watching the six hours of footage on the DVD I think it was all worth it. I have seen the movie numerous times before, and even now I still love it. The special extended version of the movie is just great, and I was kind of surprised that they actually cut some of that stuff out of the original release. None the less, I'm glad we get to see it now. Even though Canadians will have a tough time finding this, seek it out, cause you won't be sorry!

A BULLSEYE !!!!


I can't find an answer to this question...If Bruce Willis' character doesn't know that he's dead until the end of the movie, then he's certainly playing by the rules of society, ie; using doors to enter buildings, etc.So...The scene when he's waiting for Cole at his house, with Cole's mother sitting there by him, How did he get in the house?Only Cole sees him, not his mother, so she couldn't have let him in, and he wouldn't have just walked in either, since he doesn't know that he's dead. How did he get in there?
This doesn't seem a problem in public places, because he can come and go as a dead man as much as he likes, but in Cole's house?
I still like the movie.

Brideshead Revisited - movie DVD cover picture
The new DVD release is nearly perfect


"Brideshead Revisited" was never released on laserdisc, so all we have to compare the new DVD release to are our memories of the 1982 PBS broadcast and the 6-tape VHS release. I have both, and here are my notes.
This DVD release was mastered from the original print and then digitally cleaned up - and it shows. Doing an A/B comparison (switching back and forth between the videotape and the DVD running at the same time), we see that the DVD image is much brighter and more detailed. In fact, so much so that at first it doesn't look "right." We're used to a faded, fuzzier image. But after about 10 minutes, you're completely absorbed and loving it. In the first episode alone, gone are the white specks on the otherwise black background of the opening credits, Charles' sofa now has a pattern that jumps out at you, and Hardcastle's car is a gleaming white. I am positive that THIS is the way things were meant to be seen, not the other way around. There will not be Brideshead "purists" who insist that the fuzziness and faded colors were the director's intent. Indeed, the notes accompanying the DVD say that it now looks better than when it was first broadcast 20 years ago. It does.
So... is it reference-quality video? No. Is it better than an over-the air broadcast? Yes! Is it better than the videotapes? Yes!! There are still a few digital artifacts here and there (usually where shadows merge), but if you love the series, grab the DVDs. No one will be disappointed.

If you love live theater, this is a real gift!


Rick McKay has put together a true treasure for those of us who remember the hay days of the American Musical - the days when a star stayed with a show for its duration. The Golden Age is one of those DVD's you will enjoy replaying again and again.

Steve Goodman - Live from Austin City Limits and More - movie DVD cover picture
Please, let there be more video of Steve!


This video captures Steve as the on-stage dynamo I remember and love, and is absolutely priceless. Everyone who performs for an audience should watch this video and learn. Steve played the audience almost as well as he played the guitar, and it's nice to see him do what he did best - perform solo (or with Jethro, or Prine) - without a lot of studio backup drowning him out. He could get an audience to spontaneously begin clapping in rhythm, without even asking them. To see the love and appreciation his audience had for him - this is about as close as we can get now to the experience of a live show. The air-piano on "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" is amazing, and the Elvis impression is a classic. About the only thing missing that was a semi-regular feature of his live shows is the string-breaking routine. Having watched both the DVD and the VHS, I'd recommend the VHS, at least until they fix the glitches on the DVD, but either way, this is overdue, and I know there are other Steve videos out there (like the Soundstage he did with Arlo and Hoyt Axton) that are great and need to be seen again.

Spider-Man (Full Screen Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The best comic to film adaptation in a while


Just when you thought movies based on comic books were preordained to suck, along comes Spider-Man. Helmed by one of my favorite directors in Sam Raimi(whom also wrote and directed the Evil Dead films; check them out), Spider-Man makes for a great movie.
Tobey Maguire is genius casting. In the lead role, Maguire lets you empathize and sympathize with Peter Parker, which is missing from many other comic-based films. Willem Dafoe chews up the scenery as Norman Osborn AKA the Green Goblin. He makes for a great adversary. Stuck in the middle are Kirston Dunst(Mary Jane, the main girl in Peter's life) and James Franco(Harry Osborn, son of Norman and Peter's best friend), both of whom provide great supporting parts.
What makes Spider-Man succeed, is that the script(Well written by David Koepp) and Raimi's touch take the time to develop the characters and make you actually care about them. (Not too many comic-movies can make that claim) They're layered, so that when they cry, you cry with them. Not that this film is nothing but sappy, there's plenty of action to satisfy popcorn nuts. Some may complain that CGI Spider-Man doesn't look real, but I thought it looked just fine.
Everything about this movie is top-notch, and there's only more to love with the DVD, considering the huge load of extras. If you're not a Spidey fan going in, you will be coming out.

The Moody Blues - A Night at Red Rocks with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra - movie DVD cover picture
The "Best" Live Moody Blues


Clocking in with nearly 20 full length songs, this DVD contains the best live recording the Moody Blues have done to date - including the Royal Albert Hall concert. The vocals are much tighter (it was 10 years ago) and the orchestra is fantastic. Given that this is recorded in a natural amphitheater adds much more to the Moody Blues emphasis on spiritual/ethereal music.
Unfortunately, this is only dolby sound, as surround sound came much later, but it sure beats anything of that time period. Highlights are "Knights In White Satin" and "Question". Lighting is perfect and the orchestral introduction and Graeme Edge's vocal readings are superb! No typical DVD extras.

A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon - movie DVD cover picture
An HONEST Review - ( Not Another Shuttle Accident = NASA)


This movie is very convincing - WE NEVER WENT TO THE MOON - The footage shows them faking it, and by the way the window was NOT SQUARE as another reviewer/debunker stated and this was NEVER SHOWN ON FOX (they aired "Conspiracy Theory" a worthwhile program but nowhere near as convincing as this film). Listen as Neil Armstrong all but admits the truth at the Whitehouse, Learn not only "how" but "why" we were decieved. Any thinking person would have a very, very hard time believing we actually went after seeing this video. you can explain away a few inconsistancies but when you are faced with this overwhelming mountain of evidence even a blind man could see the truth - We sent unmanned probes but WE COULD NOT & DID NOT - EVER STEP FOOT ON THE MOON - End of story.
