Outstanding movie


PLATOON is a Viet Nam movie that is an outstanding film. The movie is based on Oliver Stones firsthand experience while there. The movie brings the war home to the viewer and the viewer gets the feeling that they are they. Charlie Sheen plays Chris Taylor who drops out of college and volunteers for combat duty in the'Nam. Tom Berenger and Willem Dafore play Sgt. Barnes and Sgt. Elias, two of Sheens supervisors whose personal conflicts start to tear the platoon apart. This is a classic movie that the viewer will want to watch over and over again. With the DVD we also get a behind the scenes documentary on how the actors were selected and the grueling training they went through to get ready for the film. The interesting thing about PLATOON is that many of the actors in the film were relative unknows that were cast and some of them we have seen in other films while some others, we have never heard from again.

Annie Hall


"Annie Hall" is a great film for the ages. Woody Allen does a great job portraying a man who questions modern relationships and struggles through life, so I think most people can relate to this film. With hilarious scenes like when Woody pulls out the author of the book to make one guy look like a schmuck is very funny, it's no wonder why this film won best picture. The film will have you on an emotional roller coaster ride that'll leave you speechless. You'll be laughing, crying, and even cheering for Woody through the film. Although the film is a bit paced, it's still a great movie. Overall, I highly recommend this one. The DVD has been released from MGM, and features a NON-ANAMORPHIC 1.85:1 widescreen presentation. This means, if you have a widescreen television, you will have black bars on all four sides of the picture. Anyway, it's still worth it to buy this film on DVD.

Carlito's Way - movie DVD cover picture
Eminently watchable film!


Don't believe Leonard Maltin's review about the film being flawed. What flaws? Like Mr. Maltin with his glasses and nerdiness knows anything about life on the streets. He also stated that 'The Color Purple' had flaws... I only wish more films had flaws like the two just mentioned. If there is a flaw it's only in Mr. Pacino's accent which could've used some serious work. That notwithstanding his work as always (excepting 'Any Given Sunday') is absolutely outstanding.
Any film that makes you feel for the characters in any way has done a tremendous thing in my humble opinion. In this film you will feel honest compassion for Carlito Brigante (Pacino) while at the same time you'll be unsympathetic toward him for some of the decisions he makes. Carlito is a man torn between the life he wants and the destiny to which he seemingly can't escape. You can't run away from who you are as hard as you may try. Loyalty is an admirable quality when it's directed towards the right principles and people. Misdirected it can have tragic consequences.
Sean Penn is fabulous as Carlito's corrupt and dishonest lawyer (Kleinfeld) in addition to fine supporting performances from Penelope Ann Miller and John Lequizamo (a better dramatic actor than comedian)
In the end it's about the pursuit of the american dream and the challenges we face along the way.
NOT TO BE MISSED!

Second Sight 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Couldn't be better!


As a non-native English speaker I knew I would have a hard time understanding the subtle parts of the mystery without my native language subtitles. But I, for being a big Clive Owen fan, couldn't resist. Now I'm happy I did the right thing. It's worth watching Second Sight 1&2 series again and again. I liked Owen's performances in "Greenfingers" and "Close My Eyes". This role of his, Detective Chief Inspector Ross Tanner, exceeds them by far.
Each plot of the episode is excellent. What I was so intrigued with was, however, how he faces his problem, going blind. Please watch carefully from Episode 1 to 4 in order.(notes: Episode 1 is Second Sight 1, a little longer than the other three.) You'll see how his eyesight changes from "visually impaired" to "almost blind" and his emotions from struggle and confusion to living finally with the fact. DCI Tanner is not a classical hero of hard-boild story, yet he has the same guts and loneliness, with dignity, at the bottom of his heart. Very cool!

Cowboy Bebop - The Movie - movie DVD cover picture
Wonderful!


I got the movie two days ago because I am a big fan of Cowboy Bebop (actually I'm more of an obsessive). It dosen't have much to do with the episodes and doesn't affect the episode's storyline at all,which is a good thing to me. Even non Bebop fans like it. I took a friend with me to the theature and she had never heard of Cowboy Bebop. Well, she saw the movie and now she's been watching the episodes with me. I do think that the animation and music isn't as good as it was in the episodes but it is still a treasure to me, maybe you will think the same.

Something Else (by the best songwriter of last century?)


I actually have nothing more to add. But found silly a review who rated it two stars with the comment "add two stars if a Kinks fan...", well I should say deduct two stars if you don't like music.I had the oportunity to see Ray Davies perform "solo" (with a very talented solo guitar player as backer) in Barcelona a few years ago, incredible what a performance!I think Ray is the most underrated songwriter ever.Do not miss it.
