Who's the Boss? - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Truly a CLASSIC Situation Comedy or SITCOM


This show, Who's the Boss?, is the classic of all sitcoms! It was in some ways like a soap opera, it kept you watching week after week to see Angela and Tony finally make a try at it together as a couple. Judith Light had plenty experience as an actress in a soap opera, previous to landing the role on this sitcom. Tony Danza, formerly of Taxi, does an excellent job of portraying Tony Micelli on this classic sitcom. Danza was and is still a hunk and was one of the main reasons that I watched the show every week. 1980's classic comedy that goes above and beyond typical sitcoms in that it was a long running show.

Never Come Back


Alfred Hitchcock would not have hesitated to put his name on this one. The edge of the viewer's seat gets every bit as much use as did those of film goers watching "North by Northwest", one of A.H.'s best "narrow margin escape" and "pulse pounding suspense" films. Drumroll credits to director, actors and writer. The film was composed of episodes from a BBC TV mini-series, which allows that Nathaniel Parker was not performing steadily throughout its length, but he is to be notably commended for his thespian talent and tenacity in holding his character through numerous confrontations with villains and inflictions of physical agony. James Fox continues his reputation as one of Britain's finest in his portrayal of Desmond's adversary. I found myself holding my breath more than once and emitting a sigh of relief after the particularly harrowing scenes. "Never Come Back" is more than watchable; it is worthy of bringing you back to be totally enveloped again in all its multi-talented facets.

Do something. The truth can set you free.


Farenheit 911 had the audience applauding and booing as they watched. I had seen many of the news clips he included, however they had been limited on TV. Moore gave more footage to the events which had a fuller and more significant meaning. In the past 4 years there have been so many events not shared with the public by mainstream media. It is so important for citizens to have open dialogue which this movie encourages. We don't have to all agree, but we should be able to work with the facts and not the spin of fear. I highly recommend ALL citizens should see this movie AND vote. Think of what is at stake.

Splendid


This dvd is highly recommended!

This is Mussorgsky's original full second version of the opera plus a scene from the first one,
played in the Mariinsky theatre (where the opera was firstly performed)
by the well-known Kirov opera company, with a guest-singer,
Robert Lloyed.

Although Lloyed's russian accent isn't perfect it's good enough for singing opera,
and he is very effective in the title role.

Must See


I rented "The Mighty" on a whim. I have never been more pleased with a spontaneous video rental.
The movie stars Elden Henson (aka Elden Ratliff, who you may have seen in The Mighty Ducks movies... he was the kid with the wicked shot) as Max, a slow 14 year old who is virtually a giant of a boy; and Kieran Culkin as Kevin, a child who has a dibilitating disease but an intellect advanced well beyond his years. Don't let the movie box fool you - this is NOT a Sharon Stone movie. In fact, Ms. Stone is in maybe 4 scenes, maximum. Sure, her performance is ok, but this movie really belongs to Henson and Culkin. Henson, to be frank, is excellent. The character of Max has a wide range of emotions throughout the movie - pain, bewilderment, fright, joy, sadness... He never "overdoes" a scene. He BECOMES Max. Absolutely amazing.
Culkin isn't so shabby himself - and let's be honest here, he's the REAL actor in his family. He plays the role of a boy who knows that sooner or later, he's going to die - but lives life to the fullest.
Ok, this IS a "feelgood" movie. But it's the best of its kind (forget "Simon Birch", please... besides, this movie was finished way before "Birch" was released. Miramax screwed up royally be releasing "The Mighty" late, and not promoting it enough). The imagery is awesome, and Henson and Culkin have great chemistry together. I can't wait to see more of these two (and it looks like we'll at least get to see more of Henson... he has 3 movies coming out this year). Do yourself a favor: rent "The Mighty". You'll be glad you did.

Halloween - movie DVD cover picture
THE SCARIEST INDEPENDENT FILM EVER MADE


Halloween opened in the fall of 1978 and scared the wits out of moviegoers and rave reviews out of films critics, who quickly declared it a new horror classic. A fright film hadn't made such an impact since 1960's "Psycho"(which starred Jaime Lee Curtis' mother Janet Leigh) It went on to become, up until "The Blair Witch Project," the highest-grossing independent feature ever made. I think that the films lack of blood was offset by one of it's most terrifying features: John Carpenter's brilliantly menacing score. The music in this film is phenominal, both in it's originality and ability to get you to react. To see what I'm talking about, try watching the movie with the sound off. You'll see that it makes a big difference. Another one of it's distinguishing features is Micheal Myers'-or as they referred to him in the credits "the shape"- mask. One thing that not very many people know about the mask is that it was close to having a totally different look. There were two masks to choose from, since it was a low budget movie. Thr first was an Emmit Kelly Clown mask and Nick Castle, the original Micheal, came out of the bathroom wearing it and everyone agreed it was pretty scary and it made you uncomfortable. Then he came out with the second mask which was a William Shatner Captain Kurk mask from Star Trek that they had painted white opened the eye sockets and teased the hair a bit and...a cold chill ran down all the crew's spiines, it was so demented and so sick that when the film was released in theaters the expressionless features of Micheal Myers shocked everyone and that truly is what stays with you it's the mask. When you go home after watching a Halloween movie you're still thinking about his face and almost expecting him to po out from under the bed while you're sleeping. Thats the difference between slasher films and horror films: slasher films focus more on the gore and the guts, which is not that scary, and horror films focus more on you're fears and than deal within them and bring them to life I HIGHLY recommend this movie to any Horror flick fan and say to you, turn off the lights, turn up the sound, and get ready to have the hell shocked out of you!
