American History X - movie DVD cover picture
Utterly Phenominal


The first time I saw this movie, i was awe-struck. The acting, the cinamentography, and the story(the way it was presented with the black and white past and the color present) was so provocative, fantatic, sensational. It is most deffinatly one of my top three movies...

Best of Beakman's World - movie DVD cover picture
Beakman rocks!


This long awaited DVD is good ... very good .. but it could be better. This is nothing more than the video previously released on VHS. If fact Beakman refers numerous times to "this tape" or "halfway thru the tape" during the video.

AND the previews of other videos are all OLD movies.

BUT, at least we have Beakman on DVD. Only an hour, but what an hour it is. Beakman along with lab rat Lester, and sidekick Jose do numerous scientific experiments. Explaning how to do them (safely) and why things do what they do. Each experiment is a "chapter" so you can go to a specific experiment easily.

I'm dissapointed that this was not a new collection made just for DVD. AND .. I suspect that, while it is also available in your local video store, it will not sell very well ... WHY? .. because it will be hard to find unless you are specifially looking for it .. and even then you may need to ask an employee (of course you can buy it here on AMAZON instead)

What I'm REALLY waiting for is complete seasons .. but if they are "testing the waters" with this DVD and it doesn't sell well, they will likely not release anything further :-(

SUGGESTION: It's cheap enough .. why not buy an extra copy and donate it to your local public library?

The Jungle Book (Limited Issue) - movie DVD cover picture
Everything about this Jungle Book is beautiful


Everything about this Jungle Book is beautiful. As a kid I was especially drawn to the music and liveliness. But the whole movie is just grand! Please check the colours, moving images, the voices, the soundeffects, the characters, the songs, the in-between music, the (sometimes harsh) humour... Whenever you feel low-down or beaten, just try to sing Bare Necessities or even better, I Wan'na Be Like You (and scat along). You'll be okay in a second.

Honest and useful


It's wonderful that a director of Scorsese's caliber decided to make a movie that attracts attention to the terrible demise of Tibet. Beautifully filmed, with utmost respect to the culture so few really understand here in the States

Eraser is one of Arnolds' best yet.


Eraser is a cool movie because you get to see alot of well done action and special effects and it has (kind of) an "ok" plot. In other words... It was cool enough to buy on DVD.

No Doubt, Shadow... is good


I bought the DVD because I knew I enjoyed the movie. I also liked the supplemental info (with Hitchcock's daughter)--hadn't seen that before; Daughter said it was "Hitch's" favorite movie because in it evil is brought to a nice little town and family. Good characters, plot, and humor. Good quality DVD.

Cindy Crawford - New Dimension - movie DVD cover picture
Great for moms that have little time but want to be consistent!


I am a mom of 3 small children. I am 36 years old. I say all that to say that I have little time but I want to be fit and I do not want to go to the gym to do it and I want to be able to do it when I travel.
This work out is an excellent start and maintenance for those that have just had a baby. It is slow to start for part a&b but you are grateful. Workout c I do 5xs a week in the morning before all the kids get up(or at least thats the goal). I feel great, every area of my body has been challenged but not killed. I still need the energy to take care of 3 kids. I feel like it is a great workout to do for the rest of my life. I only need 3lb weights & 10 cards. I can do it anywhere. I have really enjoyed the layed back feel yet it was very well organized.
Enjoy! Joy- mother of 4yr, 2yr, & 7mths

New Twist on Silent Films


I have only watched the first four, but I am hooked. They are so funny. I am a big fan of silent films and this is definitely a new twist on watching them. I loved the one with Rudolph Valentino as a traveling insurance agent. I was in tears with that one. I can't wait to watch all the rest. It is definitely worth the money.

Curb Your Enthusiasm - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Best comedy since Seinfeld


Simply put, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is absolutely hilarious. Each and every episode offers at least two hearty, out-loud laughs, which has become extremely rare for sitcoms nowadays. Who can remember the last time you exploded in laughter watching "Friends"?
Larry David was the co-creator of "Seinfeld", as well as the basis for the character of George Costanza. In "Curb..." we get to see the day-to-day life of David, as he goes about his business of well, really doing nothing. He gets himself into hilarious situations before the inevitable explosion of opinion on whatever the subject may be. There is so much George in Larry, and it is nice to see this timeless character live on in a regular human being. The whole cast here is great, but Larry himself manages to steal all of his scenes, as he is just a funny man.
This is a great show, and I can't wait for them to put out the rest of the seasons on DVD so I can get more laughs.
As far as the actual DVD goes, there is not much to it, simply two discs with very few extras. I was a little dissapointed that there was no behind-the-scenes or outtakes, but having the episodes is more than enough.

Merlin - movie DVD cover picture
Enchanting and compelling 'mystical' adventure


I have studied this movie in great detail and was not at first impressed with all the media hype that came with it. However, after watching it I found myself glued to the screen with nothing detaching me. Miranda 'Queen Mab' is truly a standout in this cast of distinguished actors. She played the part very convincibly and with her gasping voice, long black hair and eye-makeup, and her fantastic powers you couldn't help but not BELIEVE in her. Merlin is a great family movie with hundreds of special effects, mystical creatures and a dual theme which is the demise of the old(pagan) ways and the rise of Christianity. It is also mainly a love story which I strongly recommend you watch.
