What movies were supposed to be like.


I love this movie and it's era. No movie today can give you the same affect as this movie can (except for maybe Rocky). The music score done flawlessly by Bill Conti and the chemistry between all the actors. Back then people loved "against the odds" kind of movies and Karate Kid delivered wonderfully.
Of course if this movie was to come out today, kids would laugh and scoff at it because they would prefer to see blood, sex and stupid humor (see Road Trip). Sigh, to go back in time and sit in a movie theater...

Sex and the City


Sex and the City is a magnificent tv show starring four New York women. In the show you learn about the love and the lives of these women. If you are having a great love life or an awful one this show has the potential to make you feel great. It goes perfect with a box of semi-sweet chocolate or a carton of Ben n' Jerry's.

*can't contain the excitement*


!!^_^!! I absolutely loved this! Princess Nine is an incredibly wunnerful series to boot, and this disc just keeps you on the edge of your seat~!!!
I won't try to spoil it, but my heart went out to Keiko and Izumi... *sniffcrysob*
Somehow the dub script is a bit more forward than the original Japanese one. (As in Keiko's first question in the interview...*cackle*) But it's super effective!! I love the voice actors. ^^ Kudos to everyone who was associated with the series!

Kill Bill, Volume 1 - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent movie...


I actually preferred Volume One because there was a lot more action in it. My favorite scene was when she fights the Crazy 88's, which is weird for me, because I don't usually like fight scenes. Plus the music in Volume 1 was far superior with the Tomoyasu Hotel and Nancy Sinatra and all that. The second one was pretty damn good, though, (although I still can't watch the beginning when she gets shot...eek...too real for me). The fight with Elle definitely kicked some serious arse and when she meets B.B. is heart-wrenching, but there was a lot of Quentin's trademark dialogue in it, which, IMO, was a little overdone, i.e. the wedding rehearsal. It all depends on which you prefer, I guess. But both movies were excellent and I can't wait for the DVD of extras to come out.

Extra tracks worth the price ...


I saw the film in the theaters and enjoyed it quite a bit. The Band and Janice are top notch; I was a bit disappointed by the Dead cuts - not quite the monster jams they often delivered in '70. Then I viewed the DVD release with the additional material -- wow, this stuff was great. The two additional Dead cuts are both great Pigpen pieces played to the hilt and the best Pigpen videos by far that I am aware of. The Janice pieces are great, as always. I always liked Seatrain and know of no other video recording of them in existence. But being a bit of a folkie the other fantastic tracks are the Ian and Sylvia and Tom Rush tracks. Both dramatic performances.

I don't understand at all why they bundled these great tracks on disk 1 leaving disk 2 totally worthless. We would have all been happy campers to pay for the two disk set if they just put the 50 minutes on disk 2. Also wish they could have found something from the Band to add to the extra cuts.

Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense - movie DVD cover picture
David Byrne & Jonathan Demme, A Match Made In Heaven


I am not much of a rock music fan but seeing this extraordinary concert film of the Talking Heads in performance in 1983, when it first came out, sent me rushing to the record stores where I bought every CD of the Talking Heads ever made! The two most significant people behind this event were David Byrne, the front man and composer for the group, and director Jonathan Demme, who would go on and on to ever bigger heights in the film industry. Byrne crafted some of the most amazing offbeat lyrics with music of vast appeal to those who see themselves as Outsiders. Additionally, the numbers are all sung by the one person capable of delivering these strange new sounds: himself. Byrne also has extraordinary stage presence, which hits its crowning moment when he appears in the "Big Suit," a huge suit made by his then girlfriend and now wife, Adele. If Byrne were a visual artist instead (and he was when he was studying at the Rhode Island School of Design where he met the rest of the band), you would call his work Absurdist and Minimalistic. He makes it all work and with Demme filming the show, it is all caught perfectly. There are other fans who appreciate the other Talking Heads (3 members of the band) as much but it always seemed to me that there were many other musicians who could have filled their shoes. Byrne has continued to grow as a musician and a composer in the years since the band broke up. He quit the rock scene as a younger man's game and went on to compose soundtracks and then expand into other musical genres as well, including Latin music.
