Lost In Translation (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Tokyo Mon Amour


If you've ever spent time in Tokyo, or just fallen so far down the hole of a pointless business trip that the whole world looks like a giant jetlagged dream, if your life is so flooded with cell phone calls about the dull, repetitive logistics of doing things on schedule and under budget that you can't remember the last time you've seen anything or met anyone or said or heard anything that really moved you, MAN, is this your movie...
LIT is about falling in and out of time, disaffection and deep connection, and opening your bleary eyes to accidentally find something genuine and worthwhile. If any of this rings a bell in your life, this flick gives you lots to love: the metaphorical power of Tokyo--an incessantly artificial and yet strangely beautiful city--has never been put to better use, and the off hours and insomnia are memorably captured by the lounge-lit interior shots, the slowly swirling street scenes, the sweet, spare dialogue, and the gorgeous trip-hop/dream pop/shoegazer soundtrack (God bless Sofia Coppola for exhuming the great Kevin Shields), giving Lost in Translation a pleasing ethereal quality that no other film matched in 2003.
So get this DVD, and if your sigificant other thinks When Harry Met Sally is more romantic, SERIOUSLY consider getting back into the dating pool...

Independence Day (Single Disc Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Great Modern Sci-Fi


Do not let bad reviews stop you from seeing this movie on DVD. It is the best sci-fi since Alien. War Of The Worlds with a new twist. I do not understand what causes the overpaid reviewers to condemn so many of the sci-fi films of today and praise so many of the so called "movies with a message". If entertainment is what you are looking for this is a great two hours of intense sci-fi action. Once again i have discovered what the reviews say is bad, i seem to enjoy.

Firefly - The Complete Series - movie DVD cover picture
Too good for tv


There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said in the 700+ reviews (as of today) for this series. As a longtime Buffy the Vampire Slayer (and Joss Whedon) fan, I was willing to give this show a chance when it first came out and was blown away by the show - so much so that it was likely to surpass Buffy as one of my favorite shows of all time. Unfortunately, the Fox programming geniuses were apparently more out of touch with their viewers' taste than I'd thought. Whedon has produced some of the most exciting, original, well scripted, beautifully filmed, and most promising tv series I've ever seen and has been passed over or cancelled by not one, but two networks for these shows. Maybe he's destined for actual film production and, hopefully a wider appreciation of his talents as a writer and producer. I'd peg Firefly as the perfect vehicle for his transition to the big screen.

Wonderful


Me, being a huge Beyonce fan, I defintely enjoyed this one. It is full of humor and funnier than Carmen, her first movie. Mike Meyers also did a fantastic job on all the characters he represented. I suggest this movie to anyone who likes to laugh!

Shall We Dance? (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Lovely Film With J.Lo Doing Some Nice Dancing


Do not see this film if you are a cynic and only want to see things "blowed up real good." Because it is always romantic and often sentimental in a sophisticated way. Gere is excellent and has much verisimilitude in his portral of a man looking for something more in life. I was worried that J.Lo's part would be underwritten, but not so. Her three dance scenes are cool and erotic.

Shania Is Amazing!!


This is a must for any Shania fan. All the videos are presented in the order they were released from "What Made You Say That",to "Rock This Country". It's a straight forward presentation of the videos, one right after the other with no commentary at all.The only extras is in the Menu of the videos, where you can seethe date each video was made and released, and the video's director. It's neat to see Shania's look transform from CountrySweatheart to Pop Diva. Just being able to see Shania when I want to is enough for me.

Shallow Grave - movie DVD cover picture
Hitchcock-Bound


'Shallow Grave,' with Ewan McGregor, is the movie Danny Boyle made before he made 'Trainspotting.' This movie is nothing like 'Trainspotting.' Not even close. It's like Hitchcock. It's like 'Bound.' Actually, it's a lot like 'Bound.' No lesbians, though. It's about three British kids (two male, one female; the female played by the delicious Kerry Fox) who split the rent on an almost unbelievably spacious apartment and are looking for someone to make it a four-way split. Considering how they verbally abuse and torment everyone who comes to their door to interview for the room, it's obvious they're not really looking all that hard. Eventually, though, they do find the perfect 'flat-mate.' He moves in, locks himself in his room, and then... Well, that would be giving too much away. Highly recommended.

A giant of a dvd


Astounding music and a fantastic musicianship. After watching this dvd, Gentle Giant has escalated on my all time favorites list. You will be amazed at the variety and complexity of the music on this dvd.The only unfortunate part is that the video and sound quality is from the 70's but that should not deter anyone from experiencing GG playing live.
