Under Solen


This is a delightful movie. I caught it on late night television. I was actually just about to go to bed when I clicked on to the station showing it. Unfortunately I missed the first maybe 20 mins maybe less.The cinematography was wonderful I have lived in Sweden, and you could feel the heat of a swedish summer day, taste and smell the swedish countryside. I have read the H.E. Bates short story "The Little Farm" I loved the fact that it was set in Sweden. The cast were amazing. The power of this movie was that the viewer was transported into the moment. You were a part of it, a part of the characters lives. You cared very much what happened to them. I wanted it to go on. In fact, I wanted to see the rest of their lives. I really want to buy this movie, but so far it appears to be unavailable. I do hope that will change. Colin Nutley has made another movie using Swedish actors and technicians. Swedish films are unique. I don`t know whether it is the light, or the cinematography, or the casts and crews, but they are able to involve the viewer into the lives of the characters with such ease. The process is magical. "Under Solen" was all of that. Simply magical.Rosy Frier-Dryden

One of the best Criterion has to offer


This charming adventure/comedy follows in the footsteps of the perfect Royal Tennenbuams. With a carryover cast and atmosphere, it presents a quirky, retro peice of filmmaking that is both funny and entertaining. Did not quite pack the punch of Tennenbaums, but still a great film.

This One's A Sizzler!


'Paris When It Sizzles' is a funny, light-hearted masterpiece that is made even better by the two brilliant stars, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden.
Holden plays a famous writer who hires Hepburn to be his typist. But she is not too pleased when he reveals to her that he has not written anything yet, or even thought about the story line! So with only two days to get the script finished, the couple set about coming up with a plot, adding romance, twists, humour, switches, switches on switches, and switches on switches on switches!
The script is then brought to life by the imagination of Holden and Hepburn. With Holden playing the main man, and Hepburn playing the main girl. And also other roles played by Tony Curtis, and a cameo from Audrey's husband at the time Mel Ferrer.
This is an enjoyable film that won't leave you asking any questions. It is one Hepburn and Holden's best. Definitely not one to miss.

One of the Best Action Movies I've Ever Seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I never saw this movie in theaters. The first time I saw the whole movie was when I was in the hospital. It was a very powerful movie. I thought that the web-slinging was pretty cool. The evil laugh of the Green Goblin was, shall we say, interesting. The DVD version is enhanced, so you can see a lot of cool stuff that you couldn't see in theaters. For instance, there is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Spiderman. All things considered, I really recommend that you see this movie. I've already seen it three times and plan to see it many more times.

Buffalo 66 - movie DVD cover picture
a good independent movie


This was a good independent movie. Independent movies tend to be artsy, slow paced and generally boring. While it was artsy, Gallo's use of multiangles and photo montages and that freeze frame thing at the end (watch the movie and you'll see what I'm talking about) borders on pretentious, it kept a good pace and remained interesting throughout. The characters had interesting quirks and flaws. Much has been written about Christina Ricci's performance. While I find Ricci entirely engaging, her performance was too subtle and she seemed bored. In comparison to the other characters, her character is under developed and her story is unexplored. Why? I don't know. She has a strong screen presence but is under utilized. It was difficult finding reasons as to why her character was so tolerant of Gallo's abuse and falls in love so easily with him. What carries the film, in my opinion, was the unique way the story unfolds. Gallo uses a combination of flashbacks and cinematic effects to deliver what could have been a a dull plot. By any standard, this is a good movie made by Gallo's unique vision.

The Revenge of the Pink Panther - movie DVD cover picture
My favorite Pink Panther movie!!!


There are any number of reasons for each film in this much-loved series to be a fan favorite. I certainly wouldn't argue against Shot in the Dark as the all-around best film, or against Strikes Back as having the most big laughs, but Revenge is my personal favorite. I love all the "Godfather" scenes with Sellers because they make me laugh hysterically and I think they rank with the greatest examples of his genius. Like all his best work his portrayal of Mr. Big is both subtle and controlled while at the same time being goofily over the top. And you've got the visit to Dr. Balls, which is as funny as anything in the series and features Sellers'classic rendition of "Little Girls."

The Best movie EVER!!!!!


Nothing has made me more proud to be in the Navy than this movie. It so inspiring and truthfull to the old days of the Navy, and the struggle that the minorites had with adversity. This movie proudley depicts the life of Master Diver Master Chief Carl Brashear(Cuba Gooding Jr.), and a strong hearted and hard headed salty old Master Chief Billy Sunday(Robert De Niro)who fights/helps Brashear to fight for his dreams. I went to see this movie 3 times in the theater, and every time the place was packed to the point that we had people standing in the isle to see it. It is a must see and must to add to you collection!!!!
