Warriors of Heaven and Earth - movie DVD cover picture
Very nice, very slick


I'm a huge fan of Chines/Japanese films and in the last 10 years, or so, the Chinese have gotten very slick in their film making techniques. This film is excellant on every level and is well worth the money. The only (repeat only) criticism I would make is that the editing on the fight sequences is too choppy. Such editing is used to enhance the chaotic effect of violence and allows actors with no martial experience to seem proficient; which is a good thing most times. Violence is usually an incoherent emotional jumble of images. However, I miss the Shaw Brothers old school technique of letting the actors work through extended choreographies and can't help but think even a movie as fine as this one is would have been helped a bit by one such scene. That said, this is a great film. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Herbert Von Karajan - His Legacy for Home Video: Beethoven - Concerto in D Major For Violin & Orchest - movie DVD cover picture
Beautiful music, from the classical Beethoven


If you don't know this concerto, I warn you that this is not the Beethoven you are used to. This concerto is very Haydn style, not the spectacular Beethoven of his late symphonies. But it is beautiful, though. The performance is impecable and Mutter plays the violin lovely. Mutter and Karajan match so well together and combination of the two makes an enjoyable concert.

Laugh out loud great


I love this movie and it's sequel (I've not yet seen the third in the series). It's hillarious. Ice Cube is great and Chris Tucker is his usually funny self. The combination is good and it's fun watching them pass the day while trying to stay out of trouble. Chris going to the toilet al fresco is entertaining, and there is a good cameo by Bernie Mac. As a lighthearted fun movie, this is good. Watch a copy of this and you'll want to purchase your own.

I gufi non sono quello che sembrano


Questo cofanetto dell'inarrivabile Prima stagione di Twin Peaks ? assolutamente fantastico.Per una volta noi europei siamo pi? fortunati degli statunitensi: il box distribuito nel nostro continente racchiude cinque DVD, compreso il mitico episodio pilota diretto da Lynch, che invece ? assente nel cofanetto USA. La qualit? tecnica generale ? eccellente, sia video sia audio.Sulla qualit? artistica c'? poco da dire, Twin Peaks ? la serie Tv che ha elevato, sovvertendolo, il livello dei serial-TV. Ahim?, ? rimasto un caso isolato: nessun altro sceneggiatore, regista o produttore ha mai osato avventurarsi sui misteriosi ed ingarbugliati terreni dipanati, con somma maestria, da Lynch, Frost & C.Twin Peaks ? un capolavoro assoluto, un'opera geniale e profondissima che non finisce mai di stupire. Vedendolo e rivedendolo, ogni volta si acquisiscono nuovi e impensabili indizi che ci spingono nel cuore nero della vicenda. L'assassinio di Laura Palmer ? solo il pretesto per intraprendere un cammino iniziatico che ci porter? a sfidare spiriti oscuri e morbosi che serpeggiano tra i boschi e tra gli uomini, anch'essi agitati come fronde dal vento gelido e dolente del Male. Nonostante tutto, Lynch riesce a far brillare la stella della speranza anche in un luogo ambiguo e minaccioso come Twin Peaks, dove, per antonomasia, nessuno ? innocente.Un grande cofanetto che raggiunger? la perfezione quando sar? completato dalla pubblicazione della Seconda serie. Spero vivamente che ci? avvenga prestissimo.

Le Corsaire: ABC Coup


We watched the American Ballet Company production of this magnificent ballet on PBS tonight, 20 December 1999. It is an absolutely superb production with some of the most athletic dancing we have ever seen. It's an exotic plot, set in an Orientalia kingdom--a pasha is the opera buffo--and involving lovely slave maidens, handsome male adventurers, and intrigue. Its history is interesting too: over the years, many Russian composers have contributed bits and parts so that today, about six composers in all (Tchaikowsky, Glinka, Berlioz et al are part of the composers' ensemble). This great ballet survives only because Russia preserved its many transformations. See it. It is marvelous, and a whole new introduction to classical ballet.

A Dennis Miller Classic


I'm not much of a fan of the Crypt Keeper series, although it is fairly risible at times. What makes this film great is Dennis Miller. Smarming his way to your hearts, he cracks wise with aplomb. He zings more one-liners than there are beer caps at a frat party. The key here is that the director let Dennis "be himself"--and that's why this one is worth buying.

A great visual aide.


I caould watch this movie forever^.^ I watched it before reading the book & it helped me picture the characters & Hogwarts vividly as I read the book. Visual aide's not the only thing the movie does for the book. If you watch it before reading it, it makes the book funnier & more surprising. I did the exact opposite on the 2ed movie by reading the book first, but then after watching the movie I had to read the book again. The movies were very well made with great casting, great acting, great special effects, & great scenery. I couldn't enjoy Quidditch better any other way^.^

This movie did not get a lot of attention, but it turned out to be one of the funniest comedies ever. I wonder why black comedies don't get good reviews from the critics?
