Show Me Love - movie DVD cover picture
Love, even with alien names, is universal


It's the agony and fun of school days which one recollects from Agnes's (Rebecca) character. Though brought up in a Steel city of Durgapur (it is to Calcutta as Amol is to Stockholm), where life is not all so FREE and OPEN; sex at that age is unthinkable, still there are many many things common between the characters of Amol and those I grew up with in Durgapur. When I was infatuated with a girl at that age, my love was similar to Elian; crazy about the limitations of the other sex. And the embarassment I had in store for my parents was too common as Agnes's. My father has always been kind ofan watchdog for me, atleast economically since he was always afraid about myself getting spoiled. A similar picture comes out of Agnes's mom who not only breaks Agnes's privacy but also disregards her reservations cooking beef in Agnes's birthday inspite of knowing that she's a vegeterian. Even my father has always been very insisting, though as I grew up I found others' father are sometimes more nagging and maybe I got an optimal one! The agony of being tricked by Elian as Agnes slaps her and consequent madness is well expressed by Rebecca. But the toilet scene, which comes as an acid test of Elian's love for Agnes is just too good. For Agnes, who had always been bullied by the tall smartie, it was a time to amaze her when Elian introduces Agnes as her new girlfriend. It's an ultimate joy for Agnes. The movie is a really well thought one. But the way the handicapped character has been dealt, it can give a blow to a handicapped spectator and could have been avoided.

Alice, Sweet Alice - movie DVD cover picture
shocking...engossing....perfect.....


It took me over two years to give this film a chance. When I first saw this, I was the type of person who watched movies for entertainment and hated to be bored. Since taking up screenwriting, my opinions and taste have obviously changed, but let's not discuss that.
Made in the late 70's by director Alfred Sole, I wasn't so sure this film would be in my taste range. Seemed like another cheesy 70's slasher. After reading many positive reviews on the film, I decided to give it a shot, and was pleasantly surprised. The film is never boring and the suspense is terrific.
It starts off with a bang and ends the same way. Paula Sheppard plays Alice, a hot-headed and grumpy problem child who lives with her adorable little sister Karen, played by Brooke Shields, and single mom. When Karen is murdered during her first communion and Alice takes her place in line, suspicion immediately falls upon her as the murderer. Even her aunt begins to suspect Alice. This brings Alice's estranged father to town for an investigation to prove his daughter's innocence.
Meanwhile, the killer, wearing a yellow slicker and doll's mask continues the rein of terror, as he begins to target Alice's family.
This is not a typical slasher film as it mixes elements of Catholicism that become essential to the film. That doesn't really matter though, as the film is a terrific whodunit. You find yourself wondering if Alice really is the killer or not. Not trying to give anything away, the revelation truly is a shocking one, as are most of the death scenes in the film. Some of them are just so unexpected and very well done. The performances are also exceptionally wonderful, especially that of 19 year old Paula Sheppard who plays the 12 year old Alice. This is definitely a film I recommend to anyone looking for a tasteful slasher film. It is so different than many others out there, delivering more shocks and thrills than any other film of that time.
Originally released as "Communion", and "Holy Terror", it was later released under this title to cash in on Brooke Shields' popularity after the film "Pretty Baby" became a hit. This film is intelligent and entertaining. It truly is ahead of it's time. Highly recommended.

Aliens- They Messed With The Wrong Species


The Scott film was good, especially at the end. But this one, it captures the fear and intensity of close quarters combat like nothing else. Perhaps it takes Giger's creatures to actually reach the jaded audience, but this one does it. The very premise of the beings just makes it sickeningly scary. The production and casting are still benchmarks, though some of the green screen footage of the drop ship in the reactor complex now needs to be CGI touched up. I will disagree with most of you on one point, though. The additional footage is not necessary. In fact, I think the scene with Newt's parents actually harms the narrative flow and suspense by giving too much away. The first "Director's Cut" version was the best, in my opinion.

Stand by Me - movie DVD cover picture
Set out to see a... dead body.


I loved this movie, not to mention the book (The Body, by Stephen King). It is about four 12 year old boys hiking out to see a peers dead body. It is so funny, with cussing, and typical 12 year old boy stuff, and it is also serious at some times. The boys don't really have great parents, and mostly just hang out with each other. They set out, with some money, and meet so many stops along the way. It brings suspense at the end and guaranteed to keep you in all the way through.
It reminds me so much of me and my friends, I am 12. It is exactly how we act, so it was fun to watch and read.It will definately become a classic later on. It is very funny and intense, and just great.I Loved it and hope you do to.

Elvis - That's the Way It Is (Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Elvis Presley makes a movie about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Elvis That's The Way It Is, is not the same of the other movies he made. This time Elvis Presley plays himself. Elvis made this movie for MGM. The movie mostly shows him in Las Vegas to a show.
Elvis Presley does sing in this movie, and he does more of the time. Some or more of the songs in this movie, you might have heard him sing. The songs includes Polk Salad Annie, Little Sister, That's All Right, Patch It Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel and others.
He aslo sings, Love Me Tender, All Shook Up, Bridge Over Troubled Water (Did he really recored Bridge Over Troubled Water?), Suspicious Minds, The Next Step Is Love, What'd I say, and Can't Help Falling In Love.
Elvis fans can't help falling in love with Elvis. The movie runs about 1 hour and 47 minutes. But in this Special Edition, there are songs that was lost to the fans, until this year. It is like watching a movie on dvd. And you might be watching it on dvd. I don't know that about 31 years ago if Elvis Presey would have know that this was going to turn into a Special Edition some day. And it did.

Van Helsing (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE BUYING


I just watched Van Helsing. After reading about twenty or more reviews of the movie from all over the Internet I was a bit apprehensive that I would like it, but I like the genre and thought I would give it a try. Well let me tell you I thought it was a GREAT MOVIE! Many of the reviews I read spoke about how campy the movie was and how bad the acting was especially by the actor that played Dracula... Well my take on this is it was meant to be campy. The movie starts out in black and white just like the old movies from yesteryear (this should have been a red flag to everyone but I guess a lot missed it) and then we are introduced to Dracula and he is way over the top with his acting ... but just in the beginning of the film... to set it up as campy. It's a wink and nod to the past. Many also complained that the story line just never could happen... that Dracula could never be lead man of both Wolfman and Frankenstein and that Van Helsing could never be a Missionary from the Vatican. With that said, It's called poetic license... those that trash the movie because they don't like the set up I think went into the movie with preconceived ideas on what they were going to see. When they were not rewarded, they trashed the movie. Sorry to say, I think this has happened a lot to this movie. The reason I am writing this review is so that those that may be interested in possibly purchasing the movie but are scared away with all the negative reviews... Don't listen to them... The movie is intended to be watched with popcorn with the lights out and sound up... lots of action, monsters, and a little love... but this is not a horror movie as some I think thought it was, its just pure fun not to be taken seriously... the film doesn't take itself seriously ... why should you?

Love and Death - movie DVD cover picture
funny


Long before "Annie Hall", before "Manhattan", before "Hannah And Her Sisters", before all the personal issues and controversies, before the dabbling in art films and other genres that show how talented, versatile, and gifted the Allen touch is, Woody Allen gave the gift of "Love And Death', a quite hilarious take-off on a message film that asked rhetorical philosophical questions as set-ups for Allen one-liners. And it all works brilliantly, as when a woman, impressed with his lovemaking style asks him, "Have you had many lovers?" To which Allen answers, "No, but I've practiced a lot when I was alone". The whole movie is full of such gems.
Who but Woody can quote Kierkegard in a monologue about the meaning of life and turn it into a joke fest? Who but our intrepid New York Nebbish can make a romp through rual 18th century Russia somehow a contemporary and even timeless experience, just another romp through the countryside jesting with Death? The slapstick is more than above par, the jokes are still fresh, funny, and new, even though I've obviously heard them before. Nowadays it is unfashionable to admit that you like Woody, so demonized has he been by feminists still angry over incidents in his personal life. Yet as an artist and a comic he is certainly one of a kind, and he's the kind I'd choose to entertain me any day of the week. Enjoy!
