The Mists of Avalon - movie DVD cover picture
Unveiling a new perspective


The TNT production of Marion Zimmer Bradley's The Mists of Avalon is spectacular. Special effects, outstanding character development, and gifted actors make this movie well worth your time. Mists is a retelling of the Arthur legend through the vantage point of a female narrator. Morgaine, Arthur's sister has traditionally been portrayed as a scheming woman. In Bradley's rendition, Morgaine, Arthur, and Viviane are all caught in the same web. What's most interesting about this version is the fact that we see the events through Morgaine's eyes, thereby developing a sympathy for a normally distasteful character. The movie is true to the novel,a rarity in any production. The actors do a marvelous job embodying their characters and give a realistic sense of life to the viewer. As the film progresses, one begins to truly lose the world around them and becomes engrossed in this movie, to the point where you find yourself emoting over the events as they transpire. I would recommend this film to any fan of Arthur and Arthurian legend. You won't be disappointed.

More than just a loud mouth, a lot more


I watched "Why Did We Laugh" with great interest. Director Larry Carroll has found something deeper and much more interesting about Sam Kinison lurking just behind the noise and laughter. I didn't think it was possible but Kinison actually seems to have been a very human, very compelling character. Bravo.

Kung Pow! Enter the Fist - movie DVD cover picture
My favorite movie...ever...


That's right, you heard me. I can't believe this movie has only a 3.9 rating. I guess all the 40 year old yuppies who think the funniest movie ever is The Royal Rennenbaums .... Steve Oderkerk didn't make this film with hopes of beating the Fellowship of the Ring at the Oscars lasy year.
Anyway, this has got to be the funniest movie I have ever seen. I saw it in theaters and laughin 'till I cried at least 3 times. The whole thing's funny, but what is really hilarious are the people's voices (which some people find "annoying") and what comes out of their mouth... Almost every single word a person says in this movie is something [funny], from the Animal Song to the "LOOK! A WHALE!", you will [laugh and laugh]even more with friends.
Anyway, take my advice and SEE THIS MOVIE. It is hilarious. ...

Sex and the City - The Complete Fourth Season - movie DVD cover picture
Back up to par


The third season had me a little squeamish- way too much skin and no where near enough plot. The fourth season, however, is great. Miranda makes a life altering decision with Steve, Charlotte and Trey work out and through their differences, Samantha "has a relationship" and "falls in love," but not with the same people, of course, and Carrie is Carrie. With Aidan. Without Aidan. Can I have him if you're done?

I'm Impressed!

By the time I decided to purchase this DVD I had never seen Queen performing live - in any form. All I knew they had excellent songs. I had also heard that Freddy Mercury was an amazing entertainer. The bottom line is that I was impressed with the band's live show and Freddy's showmanship as well as talent. I truly enjoy every bit of it every time I watch it.

Great DVD!

Hooray for Harry Potter


I didn't read the Harry Potter books although I did buy them for my Grandchildren. I now intend to read them all immediately!!!!I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this movie. From beginning to end, I didn't move from my chair. I'm a science fiction fan and a fan of English authors here I have the best of both worlds.Daniel Radcliffe is perfect as Harry Potter and his performance was "enchanting". The whole cast was perfect. I could have done without Harry's miserable Aunt and Uncle but in every life a little rain must fall. Hogwarts is a delight. Too bad there are no schools like that in real life. Or are there? The adventures are mind boogling and the movie itself is "awesome".I wish we could all experience a real "quidditch" match. Wouldn't that be a wonder.The author has an imagination that I truly envy. The movie is wonderful. A delight for the mind, imagination and the eye.It will truly cast a spell over you.

Bresson a million carats film maker!


Helene (Maria Casares)is a passionate but also a cool woman who falls in love with Bernard . The sad day arrives when Bernard confess her he no longer loves her. This is the starting point of a careful revenge from the inner depths from her soul against Labourdette and her mother.The script is overknown. But in hands of Bresson it became in another masterpiece in his career.Bresson was a man concerned around the huge possibilities of visual expressions; so you may consider all his films as mude films with unnecesary subtitles.Bresson belongs to a reduced category of giants filmakers such as Dryer, Murnau or Renoir but gifted of poetic atmosphere since the opening sequences of any of his previous or next films.If you 're really interested in his filmography you'll find out such hidden treasures that you'll convince by yourself that Bresson is not only enoughly known even today, but he's a genius in the caleidoscopic sense of the word.The minimalism is a concept that I disagree in Bresson's case. His spiritual concerns hardly may be entitled ; the genius is always contemporean and that is why he escapes to any reduced category.This film must have been a true revelation in its age. Jean Delanoy for instance won a deserved triumph in Cannes with the Pastoral Symphony, for instance , but you feel that Delanoy is in a lineal level ; he's just a storyteller without the bliss of Bresson."The art and nothing more the art ; we live from the art for not dying from the truth" Nietszche.
