Very funny... and more


This is certainly not what you would expect from Jim Carrey. The comedy is of course there. But you can also relate to his character. I think at some point in everyone's life we have all felt as Bruce did. Not only will the movie tickle your funny bone, but it will touch your heart too. Who cares what the "critics" thought of this (or any) film! Us common people are the ones who in the end determine if a movie is a hit or miss! I think the people have spoken... look at the rest of the reviews! This is not one you want to miss.

Frat Party


This DVD is very well put together. Technical aspects of the videos are showcased as well as the videos themselves. I really enjoyed Chester showing off his tats. Mr. Hahn and Mike's art was awesome as well. One thing that really makes this DVD different than the others I own is the fact that they've hidden things on the DVD and are giving us clues/info on how to enjoy the secret things. Good call, LP. I can't wait for another like this one.

Outstanding


This is probably the most beautiful and moving movies I have ever seen about gay love...The actors are absolutely gorgeous, which at first led me to dismiss their acting abilities...until I realized that they were also very talented actors...When they cried, tears welled up in my own eyes...and when the boys were together, I felt that nothing in life could be so beautiful. I only hope to one day have a love like that in my life....I highly recommend this to other romantics like myself...

Apocalypse Now Redux - movie DVD cover picture
Maybe 4&3/4 stars. However make no mistake a "masterpiece"


First I have to say that this film is not overrated in any way. I write this as a response to those that have said that it is a long drag, and who have fallen asleep. They obviously don't understand landmark film-making.

This film is a masterpiece. I myself liked the first one also, and think that maybe the extra scenes should've been in a disc as extra features. However if anyone could work them into the story, then that is Coppola.

The world reknown Godfather trilogy director, here brings us into a psychological battle of the vietnam war. Make no mistake,this film is dark, and it is graphic. However it leaves you with the experience that, illfated individuals, have lived in, and amazingly through.

I suspect you already have an idea about what the film is about so I will not go into great detail like I did to rescue Godfather III. However the performances from all the actors,and especially Brando, are unforgettable. You should if you enjoy films feel the pain this movie offers, be it for the characters or in a wider sense.

You should watch this however with patience and an open mind. The Redux version is very long but just as good if not better,
since the feeling of the craming of all the scenes can only make you uncomfortable to a small extent.

I recomend it fully, if you like war films which have meaning and not just mass slaughter, or just films with acting at its best.

Finally, you should watch both in my opinion and decide for yourself. Both versions are excellent films, and it really is up to the viewer which is best, not which is good.

(Although i have seen both I own only the Redux version, because when it came down to buying Apocalypse Now on DVD, Redux had just come out, and the curiousity overpowered me, so i took the chance. I have no regrets whatsoever; this is a ladnmark film, and there will not be another that goes into this topic in this manner again.)

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I apologize for not going into greater detail.

It hits my once young heart. To just jump in the car and drive? And what ever comes, comes. Or, throw the dice of life and see what happens.

If you were young once (as we all were), and know how you have to let off some steam then you will love this movie.

Great characters, great vistas (I moved to West Texas because of the views) and great scenes.

The things this movie is missing is a sequel of all involved 20 to 25 years later just to see where all have gone and accomplished or not.

My favorite movie of all time.

Orlando at His Best


The Pirates Of The Carribean:Curse Of the Black Pearl was one of the best movies I have ever seen. It as a little bit of everything in it. From Action To romance. I have seen almost all of Orlando's films and this was his greatest. He is such a young talented actor. Johnny Deep was also amazing. He made an almost serious movie funny. i believe this move is great for everyone. I am going to be the frist to buy it on DVD.

The Golden Girls - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Back in St. Olaf, we celebrated Hay Day...shut up Rose!


It's hard to believe the Golden Girls made a final run in 1992. I was hoping for a 10 year season but what's done is done. My mom loved this show when it aired on NBC, around 8pm once a week. We'd watch it together; now older, I can't get enough of these girls. I remembered such episodes like the Miami song, Sophia's little "Medicare" song, the Grab That Dough game show, countless St. Olaf stories and Sophia's clever storytelling. It was a breath of fresh air to see Lifetime finally airing those golden episodes.

Finally, Season 1 has surfaced. Although many claim that there isn't much extra stuff on the DVD set, hopefully in the latter sets much needed behind-the-scenes footage and blooper reels will be added on, including Dorothy's farewell speech prior to the final GG episode (how many actually remember THAT?!!)

It would also nice to have the short-lived Golden Palace on DVD too.

I truly adore this show. My VCR tapes can now finally be put to rest. The time has come for Golden Girls, now on DVD.

What a fun movie!


Before watching the movie Bandits, I was neither a fan of Bruce Willis nor Billy Bob Thornton but after this movie, I won't be so quick to dismiss a movie just because it stars someone I don't care that much about. The decision to watch this movie wasn't one I made, but I've been raving about it to anyone who will listen ever since.
Billy Bob Thornton is hilarious as the hypochondriac who is a rather reluctant prison escapee and even a more reluctant bank robber. As good as the scenes with Thornton and Willis are, the screen really lights up with the appearance of Cate Blanchett as the unhappy housewife who accidentally gets involved with our two bumbling robbers.
I laughed myself silly while watching this movie! I enjoyed it so much I had to watch it again the next day and enjoyed it even more. The only complaint I had was that the interview sections with Willis as Joe and Thornton as Terry seemed to interfere a bit with the story. That said, on the second viewing, the interview portions made perfect sense.
The climactic ending, which is not all it appears to be at first, is so clever and the perfect ending for a movie that is just plain fun!
