Ulla?..."Go to work"


The original title "Springtime for Hitler."

Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) an independent accountant is discussing Max Bialystock's (Zero Mostel), a play right, finances from his last play. They come to the realization that if you produce a flop you don't have to pay back the money you collect. This holds true even if you sell more than 100% interest in the play. So they plan just that for the next play. First they must get money so Max launches himself into "Little old lady land". Estelle Winwood gets to play "Hold me, Touch me." To assure the play is a flop they find one called "Springtime For Hitler"; the find players to match such as Lorenzo Saint DuBois [L.S.D.] (Dick Shawn.)." In the mean time Max using the excess money picks up an assistant that can only speak Swedish. That is Lee Meredith as Ulla.

Do they succeed?
Do they learn their lesson?
Send me five dollars and I will tell you. (Just kidding)

Deep


This is the most thought-provoking anime I've seen. It boldly goes where no anime has gone before. It goes beyond futuristic pinnochio themes, beyond emotional conflicts. The movie sets itself in a unique (and already thought-provoking) situation that allows it to examine some of the finer aspects of humanity.
Some anime are created because they're funny, action-packed, have a beautiful character, or because they're well drawn. Kazuo Yamazaki (the director) has created a thoughtful artistic masterpiece.
This movie is great for anyone in the mood to think.

Does what a good movie should: make you laugh and feel good!


I watched this DVD by myself, and I think this is the way one should watch movies; no distractions. English is not my native tongue, although I'm totally bilingual (Spanish-English), however I was absolutely enthralled and delighted by Shakespeare's Old English poetry and in the end I think I got all the meanings right. I will not dwell on the content, but in the feelings it provoked, all the time surprising in the plot and development of the story and also in the mostly gratifying performances of the cast. The settings were as they are supposed to be: fantastic and unreal. The final play-within-a-play was superlatively funny. In sum, the movie left me with an ear-to-ear grin and a wholesome good feeling that lasted me all evening and a good part of the next day. I will only say to the other would-be critics that this is a movie best judged by its ability to evoke feelings and less for its technical and/or acting/directing characteristics. A word of caution: Do not try to compare it to a stage play; this is a movie, with the constraints and limitations of movies and also with some advantages over plays, so, oranges vs. apples, different, no? Both can be delicious, each in its own way.
What is a movie for? My opinion: to make you feel something. NOT to satisfy supercilious and punctilious critics. Therefore I rate this as one of the best movies I have ever experienced and I heartily recommend it to most viewers.

My Son the Fanatic - movie DVD cover picture
My Son the Future Suicide Bomber?


Parvez was born in Pakistan and moved to London some twenty five years earlier. He has mostly assimilated into his new cultural milieu and considers religion to be a secondary aspect of his overall identity. So much so, our central character has become something of a part time pimp along with being a full time cab driver. Parvez's son Farid is a young man who is gravitating towards radical Islamism. Great Britain's secular society appalls him. The family seems doomed to be severely damaged by this conversion. Even Parvez's wife is joining the fundamentalists. He is so distraught that he seeks comfort from the prostitute, Bettina. Parvez's whole life is unraveling. Is there any hope?

I've read a number of the reviews of My Son the Fanatic and none of them highlight Farid's terrorist activities. He and his fellow Islamic ruffians even throw a molotov cocktail through the window of a whore house and don't hesitate to physically attack women deemed slutty. Nor did the reviewers refer to the young man's blatant anti-Semitism. At the very most, they pointed out his alienation and hatred of modern allegedly decadent Western Civilization. In many respects, the reviews seemed to suggest that Farid is no more threatening than the existentially troubled hippies of the 1960s. What accounts for such naivet? in 1997? Political correctness? One can easily imagine Farid eventually becoming a nihilistic suicide bomber. Yes, I strongly advise you to see this film. It should help you more clearly comprehend the motivations of the Islamic fascists within our midst. My Son the Fanatic was a warning we should have heeded.

"Never judge a "book" by its cover"-said the smart one whoever it was. Just how many times I have ignored this movie being 100% sure that it's just another .... cheap movie. Ouch,how wrong I was.This movie was perfect and I liked it heaps especially after I've read that some parts are based on Mariah Carey's life.The movie shows a life of an orphaned girl and her huge success she has over the years to come by meeting the right people inthe right time.This movie will grow your love for Mariah Carey as she is a perfect actress too.

You think I'm kidding? Making with de funny schtuff?


The Big Lebowski is the first Coen brothers film I saw, and I must say I'm surprised that so many people don't seem to like their style. If TBL is indicative of the rest of their movies, they must all be works of strange genius. TBL is a hilarious movie, though an eccentric one at that. It's the only film I know that has a record number of F words in a single film, and is yet still tasteful.The characters are very well defined and the actors play them convincingly. And if you like 'The Peppers, you'll also be amused by Flea's performance as the wussy nihilist. Overall, TBL is an excellent movie, and something for just about anyone's collection. Even if you're not interested in buying it, I'd recommend you to at least rent it and see it. I guarantee you'll be hooked.

Love it!


I've seen this movie more times than I'd care to admit. That phoney Corvette hood with all the Pep Boys stick-ons just makes me want to puke. Annie Potts was a pretty cute hooker though. If you really want to get sick FOR FREE, see it for free on Speedvision's Lost Drive-In. It got stolen and stolen. To bad they didn't just lose it.

Dressed to Kill - movie DVD cover picture
DePalma at the Top of His Form


Director Brian DePalma really hit it in some of his films that were a homage to the late Alfred Hitchcock. This is one of them. For those of us really missing Hitchcock, this film was a welcome breath of thriller fresh air. While employing a more flamboyant style than Hitchcock and at times straying "over the top," DePalma nevertheless solidly holds his own in delivering a screen thriller. I've seen it several times and always enjoyed it. Who is murdering women is the question? And who will he murder in this film? We start off with Angie Dickinson as the killer's target and that entire sequence is bravura film making of the most exuberant order. Then we segue into examining Dickinson's psychiatrist, played by Michael Caine, through the sleuthing of Nancy Allen and Dickinson's son. If you want to compare this film to a Hitchcock film, I think it most resembles "Frenzy" about the London necktie murderer of women. I also really like "Blow Out" which I see ... is selling in tandem with this one as a special. You would do well to get both. You will be hugely entertained.

Mario Frangoulis - Sometimes I Dream (Live in Concert) - movie DVD cover picture
PHENOMENAL, FANTASTIC, SUPERB, PASSIONATE


Mario is amazing. I am a die hard Bocelli, Groban, Safina fan but I am afraid Mario is a step above all three. The audio is superb, the subtitles a major treat, and Mario sings his heart out with pipes that have to be heard to be believed. He has trained with Alfredo Kraus, famous operatic tenor, has won the Maria Callas vocal prize for opera and does crossover like no other. This is passionate singing, singing with all the emotions, ranging from sensitive to powerful, from happy to sad, no monotone depressing tones here!! Hijjo de Luna a song I am familiar with from Sarah Brightman's DVD who turns it into just another pretty song. It is transformed by Mario into a story of mythological and operatic proportions by the range of expression Mario puts into it along with the subtitles (of course it is in Greek and since Greek is his native language he knows what he is singing about). The whole DVD is absolutely fantastic and highly recommended to anyone who loves crossover. Too bad PBS won't be showing this as often as Josh's concert (don't get me wrong I really like Josh he has a very nice voice and is very likeable) but it is interesting to see how the American boy gets all the publicity whereas the European talents with the exception of Bocelli don't get the same level of publicity.
