The Butterfly Effect (Infinifilm Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Unfairly slated


Seeing the name 'Kutcher' on the cast list has obviously had critics unduly rubbish this film with a closed mind.The plot is gripping, and makes no effort at hiding from controversial and highly charged issues such as paedophilia, whilst the performances are believable and emotionally intense - even from Kutcher who makes this his debut into 'serious' acting. He does a great job at relaying the sheer desperation of his character in the quest for a perfect future, whilst Amy Smart delivers a stunning performance.In my opinion the real stars though are Kayleigh and Tommy as teenagers (Irene Goravaia, and Jesse James) and Evan at 7 years of age (Logan Lerman). The latter gives a particularly chilling performance, and all three certainly pack a punch with their acting: I expect we'll see more of them soon.Although people have criticised plot inconsistencies and highlighted paradoxes, personally I prefer a film that goes for the story above worrying assidiously away at retentively solving every possible issue. There are better things to do with life...

My Big Fat Greek Wedding - movie DVD cover picture
Totally satisfying


I felt this movie was just perfect. I have seen it several times in the theater taking different people..(I took my husband and male friend and they loved it!) I feel the movie is a change of pace from the usual romantic comedies. I loved the way Nia Vardalos portrayed her family and life without going overboard with unnecessary details. I also thought the movie was tastefully made with almost no cursing and without heavy duty sex scenes.

Stormchasers (Large Format) (2-Disc WMVHD Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Macgillivray is a master of documentary.


An experienced and masterful director, Greg Macgillivray raises the industry standards while using the available technology with clear intentions: entertain, wonder and educate the viewer without loosing the edge of the story. An Imax expert, he has also stunned the viewer with The Living Seas (with a beautiful Sting soundtrack), the Everest and Discoverers. Here, he takes you for a rough ride inside Hurricane Emily-to its very peaceful eye- and later he chases a very large and freightening tornado. He also visits India to report the monsoon season. He succeeds as usual and stays commited to his credo: raise the quality standards. The audio is impressive and the image has the tipical yet outstanding Imax beauty. Check out the "making of" section and share the exitement of the film crew and cientists involved. A real masterpiece. BUY IT!.

Life Is Beautiful - movie DVD cover picture
Don't miss the point...


Life may have seemed beautiful through the eyes of a child but the reality was far different for Benigni's character. He gives a truly touching and comic performance. That notwithstanding the lesson to be learned (in my opinion) is that optimism (if believed and adhered to) that flies in the face of harsh reality can have dire and tragic consequences for the optimist (Benigni). Instead of making light of his situation he would perhaps have been wiser to escape the terrible onslaught that was the Holocaust and maybe all the tragedy could have been avoided for both him and his family.
Life was anything but beautiful particularly when the hard labor began and most specifically when he realized that a perceived friend was anything but.
That being said it is a must see film. A beautiful romantic comedy with tremendous dramatic impact.

WONDERUL STORY - AND THE MEN IT PORTRAYS!


It was wonderful to find a woman who not only sticks by her husband and her marriage but also faces her own fears without leaving.

The life of the firefighter is dangerous at best but they do so much unhearlded good. Just their job they say but it still takes a toll on them.

So many have given better reviews of this movie than I could ever - The lives of these men are a real inspiration to all who touch them. I hope we develop a greater compassion for them and their families.

They rank along with our boys in service for heroism and bravery. I really enjoyed the movie until the end which brought many tears.

The cast was great - the movie was moving -- And I am glad to have seen it.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Night of the Living Dead (Special Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Most influential horror film ever.


Night of the Living Dead, the original, blows it's remake away. This movie, along with Psycho, proves that you don't need red blood, or overgory effects to make a good movie. I was privileged to be one of the cast members of the first-ever stage production of Night of the Living Dead. Cathedral Prep high school in Erie Pa made the first ever stage adaptation of this brillant movie and put it on the stage. If that doesn't call for a good movie, then I don't know what does.

Amazing!


This is an amazing film. Very German. I also highly recommend the soundtrack (which is even better if you drive a German car). This is a great film to watch over and over again. It's also really good to show to a friend whose never seen it before... The quality of the sound is very good; and the commentary track is enjoyable.

Depp A Star Again!


Johnny Depp returns to the limelight as a slightly off-balance pirate seeking to reclaim his former ship from his mutinous first mate. Orlando Bloom shines as he comes of age in this film, showing his many talents. Those who have been on the ride will appreciate the rich and lavish sets with their many references to things seen on the ride.How doi you take a five-minute ride and turn it into a two-hour movie? Ask the people who made this and made it right!

The best 'N Sync footage that I have ever seen.


The video shows the true side of the guys. Has never before seen footage, like Lance without a shirt, and import videos. You will never stop watching it, and it makes you want to go to all of their concerts.

Surprisingly a wonderful movie


I didn't bother seeing this movie when it first came out. I had the feeling it would be a tad too silly for me. A friend of mine brought it for me to watch one day with some other movies. I kept this one for last (dreading to watch it). Boy, I was wrong. I loved this movie. The retelling of Cinderella was great and I absolutely loved Drew Barrymore's character and the way she was portrayed.
