Female Masturbation : Every Woman's Orgasm is Unique. - movie DVD cover picture
Unusual.


I am always so disappointed when I read people making condescending comments about what they think a woman's orgasm should be , what the woman showing it should look like, how she should sound, whether her technique is right or wrong...Such narrow views...so limiting...

To me this DVD was unusual, watching a woman bringing herself to orgasm by manual stimulation of her clitoris and keeping herself there in that intense orgasmic feeling for 30 minutes was mind expanding !!!!

I found it especially interesting because even though our sex life is fun when I showed it to my husband, it gave him reality about what I have tried to explain to him for a while: he doesn't need to be all over the place. Whether with his tongue or his finger, some simple strokes, and when he is on that spot that feels so good, keep on playing me right up there for as long as he can as this woman does.

Don't get caught in the simplicity of the production but watch with a new eye and it may take your sex life to a new thrilling place as it did ours.

The Howling (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
This is the scariest werewolf flick ever!


THE HOWLING is one of the best werewolf movies I've ever seen. The story is about a female TV news reporter who has a traumatic encounter with a rapist and after that she is sent to a group community retreat. Then she slowly begins to find out that almost every one at the retreat is a werewolf. The film has a bizarre story along with some amazing special effects.

Best movie ever, baby !


Without a doubt, the most original movie i have ever seen. This story is a glimpse in to the life of the struggling, up and coming actor in Hollywood. It is loosely based on John and Vince and the troubles that they had breaking into the biz. Fantastic writing and low-budget feel. Perfect combo. A+. Do not miss this movie!!

MATRIX: Well-Made Live Action Comic Book


THE MATRIX DVD is synonymous with DVD players. Just about everyone I know who has a DVD player owns THE MATRIX. Because of its subject matter and technical prowess, it is a DVD that is made for the new digital age of video players.
First off, it's a great flick: a live-action comic book (which you'll comprehend once you view the behind the scenes extras -- the storyboards for this film were done by talented comic artists. The frames of the movie replicate these strips. Brilliant!)
The DVD looks great. I recently watched it on one of those excellent plasma screens and realized for the first time that all of the scenes that take place in the "matrix" have a green tint to them - to suggest the unrealness of the matrix.
The story continues to enthrall me every time I watch it. The Wachowski brothers are great story tellers and THE MATRIX is a great story. They interpolate references to Jesus and Alice in Wonderland.
And Hugo Weaving's performance as Agent Smith is hilarious and nuanced at the same time.
The DVD has some great bonus stuff. The feature on "Bullet Time" is fascinating. You'll understand how they achieved the famous shot of Keanu on the roof in his black jacket dodging bullets!
THE MATRIX is 3 years old as of this writing. In 2003, the first sequel will be out. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for this film series.

The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Simply Wonderful


I entered the theater to see "Fellowship of the Ring" with mixed emotions. On one hand, I was very afraid that one of the most beloved tales of my childhood was about to be turned into tasteles, vulgar, Hollywood pap (a feeling that was reinforced by the relentless marketing). On the other hand, I was excited that many of my most blissful moments of day-dreaming in school (to the eternal detriment of my grades) were about to become big screen realities.
It brings me great pleasure, utter joy and some surprise to report that my first feeling was completely unfounded.
Put simply, "Fellowship of the Rings" is simply wonderful. I sat for three hours, mezmorized by what was happening on the screen, many times thinking, "this was exactly how I imagined it", or, "that is better than how I imagined it (particularly with regards to the orcs)", or, "they could not have gotten anyone better to play that role".
I want to express my gratitude towards director Peter Jackson for taking an immensely difficult story and rendering it with such love and care. It is quite obvious that, unlike so many directors of movies inspired by books, he absolutely loves the material and wishes to remain faithful to the intentions of the author.
At the same time, however, he displayed the wisdom to recognize that not all of Tolkien's prose, nor plot devices, would translate well to film, and the courage to alter his own work accordingly.
Jackson's courageous decision to take some liberties, adding here or cutting there, with Tolkien's masterwork was critical in making the "Fellowship of the Ring" soar. For example, as much as I love "The Fellowship of the Ring", I was very happy to see that Jackson completely dispensed with all the pages devoted to Frodo and the hobbits' stay with Tom Bombadil. As a young child, my first attempt to read "The Lord of the Rings" foundered mightily in Tom's house. Had Jackson decided to linger at Bombdadil's house himself, I suspect that the film may have foundered a bit as well, as Bombadil contributes very little to the overall plot.
Inevitably, some of Jacksons' decisions on what to add or cut will not sit well with some of Tolkien's more ardent fans. They will inevitably generate some hate mail. But the lack of this artistic courage is something much more frightening to contemplate. The unwillingess to cross an author for the sake of one's film is what, in my view, rendered "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" sterile and humorless.
I could go on for hours about how great this film is, but I recommend that you see it for yourself. I think the vast majority of people, whether Tolkien afficionados or not, will recognize its greatness, and will come to think of it as a classic and a true film achievement.

Roman Holiday (Special Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The Elegant Entrance of Audrey


Roman Holiday may not be the perfect movie, but with a new little nymph named Audrey Hepburn introduced it sure leans that way. Hepburn plays a princess (what else?) who is on the run from her heritage as she explores her freedom. She is befriended by a reporter (played by an eerily old to be hitting on her Gregory Peck) and he takes her for a darling day on the town. Another plus for this film is that it was actually shot on the streets of Rome. This only adds to it's beauty. Hepburns charm as the naive princess is untouchable. Her subtle accent plays in your ear like soft violins and her eyes will make you melt. The film is a must see but it's Hepburn you can't stop admiring.

Family Guy, Vol. 1 (Seasons 1 & 2) - movie DVD cover picture
Funniest Underrated show ever!


I'm wanting and awaiting a release of the third season of "The Simpsons", and yet, here is "Family Guy" in all of its humorless glory, still (trying to) ride Homer's coattails. Yes, if you buy the Simpsons, you can get a discount on this second- (or third-) rate knockoff.
I tried to give this show a chance, despite its already horrible premise. You have a fat, overweight, lackadaisical Everyman, his semi-reasonable wife, a smart daughter, a dumb son, a super-intelligent baby (with a disgusting 40-year-old voice) and a talking dog. The family would get into, and out of, ludicrous capers (which isn't necessarily bad - the Simpsons is often at its best in these moments; I mean, Homer becomes an astronaut?).
However, where the family guy really runs afoul is in its horrible writing. Whereas the Simpsons often times tweaks popular culture and current events, the Family Guy runs over them with a sledgehammer. In fact, this show seems to want to be more South Park than the Simpsons, but is afraid to jump over the cliff in the profanity aspect. So instead, we are treated to mean-spirited jokes about Oprah Winfrey or the NBC network, which fail to amuse.
I am surprised by the reviewer who claims this show is just "too witty, shocking and satirical" for American tastes. In fact, the Family didn't fail because of its shock content; in fact, most of America hardly batted an eye during its two (or maybe three, but who's counting?) season run. I remember reading a TV critic who lamented the Fox network's choice of ignoring a gold mine in Futurama, while continuing to run episodes of the sad-sack Family Guy. Indeed, I lament those of you who shell out your hard earned money for this tripe.

Rocky IV - movie DVD cover picture
Eye of the Tiger meets the Burning Heart


Words cannot describe the depth or the human emotion that went into the making of this film. When his own wife shrieks "You can't win!", it's all the isnpiration Rocky needs to defeat Ivan Drago, the super human boxer from the Soviet Union.
Brigette Neilsen comes along for the ride in this one as Drago's Ice Queen wife. Action Jackson, I mean Carl Weathers from the first three Rocky movies is now dead, killed by Drago in an exhibition fight. NoW Rocky must go to Moscow and fight Drago before a crowd of heartless, godless, and sinister Russians, oh can you feel the drama building?
"He's not a machine! He's a man!" screams Rocky's coach as Rocky finally lands one punch after 15 rounds of boxing. Though Rambo, I mean Rocky, looks like a leaky catsup bottle, his spirit and fighting desire carry him on to win. Of course at the beginning of part V, Rocky now has brain damage. I thought that was evident from Stallone's first scene in Rocky I.
At any rate, if you are a George W. Bush supporter who thumps his chest with a heavy fist and proclaims that all of America is represented by a few right wing knuckleheads, this movie is perfect for you.
