Twin Peaks - The First Season (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Utter mastery of film and drama....


This is an exquisite style of all aspects of the screen. Not only does Lynch make you feel like he is making a parody on modern day soaps and life, but he also makes it feel like each episode is a film for the silver screen in themselves. The only thing that is lacking with the episodes is the fact that you cannot get a hold of them in DVD format.

Sounds yight


This video will be my first ever so I'll automatically will think its the bst out there. In the last few years I've loved rollercaster thrills so much I visited all of the theme parks in Texas. I've loved them but I'd like to see more. This summer Im going to Florida so I want to see the rollercoasters from there also. I think it sounds great, Im getting mine tomorrow ad Im excited about it a lot. One word of advice for all of ya'll chickens out therethat don't like rollercoasters, live a little!!!

Adam Sandler's Greatest!


This is definitley one of the best films ever. Adam Sandler's performance as this character who supperes his anger has got to be one of greatest acting jobs he ever did. His old movies were a guilty pleasure to me because well...They weren't very good. But this dark, moving comedy was amazingly great. If Sandler doesmore films like this, he can be holding that Oscar in his hand. My final grade:A.

Stargate Series is a Winner


High quality DVDs with interesting extras including interviews with cast members and an interesting look at the development of the many many costumes. If you are a stargate fan this is an excellent set. If you have never watched the show it is worth the price. If you are not sure, rent the first episode at the video store and then decide. I am sure you will be hooked. The only bummer, is the last episode in the set is the cliff hanger and they only include the the first part. The second part must be in the Season 2 set which is not out.

Style and story


Good storyline.

Good acting (a bit stilted) but I like it. Kurt Russell PLAYS the part of an emotionally empty soldier dumped into a society.

Negatives:
---------------------------
> Feels low budget. The storyline is good but could have had a better and been a bit less bleak. I don't mind dark but the visual feel of the movie was "B movie"

If you are looking for amazing dialog look elsewhere, if you are looking for Kurt representing caged emotion you will find it.

If you are looking for cool special effects look to Star Wars or I Robot or any other recent movie. If you want a good story with plausible (albeit flat effects) you will find it here.

-----------------------------------
<b r />That said I bought it because of the action, and story.

In some ways this is a clich? film, it has the "one guy against overwhelming odds" storyline. I like the interaction and the "healing process" which includes him dealing with everyone else as "sir" and finally figuring out some don't deserve the title. I just love the concept of a conditioned "pure" soldier dropped out of his controlled environment, and gravitating to what is truly "right" (protecting innocents).

Plus a good ending is a prerequisite for a 5 star from me.

As I said 5 stars: Action, good story, and good acting (mostly) + my gratuitous happy ending.

AN EXCELLENT FILM


I first saw this movie at the theater. The commercial made the movie sound intersting, so I went to see the film. It was so good. There was a perfect blend of action, romance, drama and mystery. Every one that I know who saw it loved it too! They should make a sequel.

Well worth the money even if you own the theatrical releases


As the title says, these are worth the money because of the added scenes. 30 min. in film #1, 43 min in film #2 and 50 min in film #3. you might consider these versions the directors cut. The information and insights contained in the footage resolve many questions left unanswered in the theatrical releases. Also the 2 discs (per movie, 12 discs in the set) of extra features are differant than the theatrical releases and in many ways more insightful than those contained in the theatrical releases. Even if you already have the 6 discs of the theatrical versions you won't be disappointed with these!

Excellent!!


This is a beautiful transfer, on an excellent mob film. The DVD package is VERY good espcially for the below 15 dollar price most retailers have it at. Deleted scenes, directors commmentary, and other special features are done very well, but the movie is classic. Johnny Depp and Al Pacino play off eachother so well, that they make this true story into a cinema masterpiece. I give it the fifth star, because of the "bargain bin" price its been giving, if you see it for 15 bucks consider yourself lucky.

Even Better Than Season One


More of all your favourite characters! The "wild west" is now Dr. Mike's home and she fits in better and has managed to make a working family between herself and Charlotte's orphans. Watch the blossoming romance between Sully and Dr.Mike continue to unfold amidst trials dealing with prejudice toward gender and race. Confrontations dealing with the perception of women and the "proper place" for Indians still provide much material for the plot twists. Sully has just as much tomahawk action, but he's ditched the bangs (thank goodness!)

This has more bullets for your buck!


Let me just say I've never seen Braveheart so I won't be comparing them. This movie is excellent on it's own. The sets and costumes are perfect and the characters are rich and varied. I especially enjoyed Heath Ledger as Mel Gibson's eldest son. The battles were well done and so were the debates between those who supported or rejected the revolution. Excellent moral questions are raised snd discussed. Then more people get killed. It has fun for the whole family!
