Unbelievable !!!

At first glance, maybe a weak rendition of the power of the America's cup. Like Top Gun, frought with simplifications and inaccuracies for the sake of those who wouldn't understand an accurate portrayal. To an aficionado, it is really quite John Bertrand's account of the '83 race and Dennis Connor's account of the '83 and '87 races and you will see all the bases covered. Wind is fiction, no doubt but all the situations have been constructed from factual occurrances...Superb cinematography, wonderful soundtrack; a must see over and over if you have ever raced a sailboat of any size....

Perfect...minus the movie

Knight Rider season one was great. I ordered it and almost couldn't stop watching it. I started liking Michael and KITT's adventures back in '95 when USA aired the series in repeats and this is definately worth every cent. The only problem with the DVD set is the movie. Knight Rider 2000 is possibly the worst movie I've ever seen. It kills off or destroys almost every aspect of the original series and on top of that, it has an awful plot in general. The writer of that movie really needs to go hide somewhere... Anyways, like I said, ignore the movie and this is a great cent.

Fight Club (Single Disc Edition) - movie DVD cover picture

Who thought director David Fincher would ever be able to best his career over the amazing Se7en? Well, I didn't. I wasn't expecting this to be any good. But it was more than good. This film was turned out to actually be masterful, hip and expertly crafted.
Brad Pitt and Edward Norton are both confident and experienced actors. Here they prove that they will carry on to be some of the most watchable character actors of our time. Pitt is extroadinary as Tyler Durden, a guy with a twisted philosophy, and Norton is amazing as Jack's body parts, or, in simpler, the narrator. We never know until the largely unexpected end which is possibly one of the greatest twists in film history. Helan Bonham Carter also proves she is one of the most capable British actresses at the moment.
Prepare to be blown away with this incredible flick overflowing with brains and thrills.

Ready for a horror - ific night?

This DVD is the first of the Child Play series and is by far the best. Chucky, a sadistic, smart and persuasive doll who has been possessed by the ghost of Charles Lee Ray is the star and is actually a pretty freaky looking doll. The young boy Chucky needs to hurt/kill in order to obtain his body is played by a wonderful (young at the time) actor Alex Vincent, a very intelligent first move.There are a few good scares in this first one, unpredictable since it's the first, a good start and a must see for horror fans. Chucky will sure be a classic of our times.

Friends - The Complete Fifth Season - movie DVD cover picture
Yet another classic season in TV history

Season 5 is a must have for any true Friends fan. There are so many classic moments that will be with me forever that came from this season. These are a few of the many great moments from season 5: Chandler having to kiss Rachel and Phoebe because they all caught him kissing Monica, Phoebe having the triplets ("Chandler's a girl!"), Phoebe trying to find a selfless good deed to prove Joey wrong, Rachel fogging the Yeti, Ross' annoying quiet down hand motion and his air purifier, the Thanksgiving flashbacks, "Mental Gellar," Danny and his sister's "close" bond, New Year's resolutions, Chandler and Monica playing tennis, Joey's purse, "They don't know we know they know we know," Joey saving his sandwich during a ride along with Gary, Punky Brewster punches Joey, Ross' flirting (you know the smell gas has?), Tossing a ball for hours without dropping it, and the one in Vegas. If you haven't bought season 5 yet, what are you waiting for? Plus the special features are great too. There's a look at the making of an episode, plus Gunther spills the beans about season 6 which comes out in January. Woo Hoo!!

a great movie for sci fi fans

I don't write reviews normally, but this is an awful movie. My daughter ( age 12) had just finished reading the book. I had also read the book to my son ( age 9). Both had liked the story and wanted to see the movie. We did and walked out in horror. Nothing in this movie is right! The troops in the book had full combat suits. The soldiers in this movie had about as much armor as a policeman. The tactics in the book were fast in/out types. In the movie they acted more like they were playing capture the flag. Finally the whole lesson of citizenship and honor were plowed under. I love the book and have an insane hope that someone will make a movie of it that focuses on the story, not the effects. In movies like Star Wars and Aliens the effects were good, but the story is what made them special.I cared about Luke or Ridley. This movie just trashes the story.

The Wiggles do it again !

Great DVD ! The Wiggles put out another great video to their collection.
This is one of my kids favorite Wiggles videos. Great songs and production. Only one disappointment, no children dancers. Great to see them use one of their adult dancers (Niaomi Wallace) as a new Wiggle friend, "Magdalena the Mermaid".
So, sit back and enjoy some rosey tea while you watch this DVD.This is a must for all Wiggles' fans.

What was old is new again!

I was an avid Muppet Show viewer in the '70's when these were on in syndication; however, a lot of the shows in the first season are new to me. There is also a lot of material that wasn't in the episodes when they were shown here, but were in the British versions (mostly musical items).

My kids 8 and 4 also love them; my 4-yr.-old requests the Connie Stevens episode over and over because he loves the Swedish Chef segment in that one. However, all Swedish Chef fans must check out his segment in the Rita Moreno episode. It is absolutely hilarious what he does to that cake!

Also watch with the Muppet Morsels trivia captions selected. There is a lot of good information in there that really helps you appreciate the genius of the Muppeteers.
