Playing by Heart - movie DVD cover picture
X-Cellent Film


I think that Playing by Heart showed some true emotion and it showed that some couples do live like that. Gillian Anderson's performance was x-cellent, I think she deserves at least a nommintaion as do all the other actors. Sean Connery was great as always, as were all the others. If there is any romantic movie to watch this is it. 5 stars deserved.!!!!

Rules of Engagement - movie DVD cover picture
Technically excellent but politically wrong


I thought the "slaughter" was in very bad taste. And what bothers me is that the whole movie centers around that scene from that point in the movie on. When i first saw this movie i thought there were going to me a lot of Arab people upset to this portrayal of their people. I really don't understand why Americans continue to make these kinds of movies. They are just making things worse. If you can look past that scene the movie isn't half bad, but that pretty much ruined it for me.

Welcome To Magic, Indeed.


I agree with the others, specialy, Christina (a kid at heart). It is about time this was released on DVD, and wanting and wishing alot more to come soon as well.

I am also over the age of 13, way over, but still love the Winx Club, and the show really also brings out the kid in me all over again as well.

This is really great I must say and not even got it yet, ordered it, but must wait at elast til relase day, but otherwise, this eyar will be a very nice 'Winx Year' with new dolls just out, the DVD now, and more toys and such in August, plus the Winx Club video games due out in November, this is indeed great times to enjoy and love the Winx Club.

Cube - movie DVD cover picture
AWESOME! INSANE SCI-FI AT IT'S BEST!


I remember watching this film when my wife and her friend walked in. It was about 2/3 over so I filled them in on what had happened already. They asked me a bunch of questions like how did the characters get in the cube, who built the cube and why was it built? The characters themselves only have a vauge idea of what is going on, which I explained to my female counterparts. Well, they found that totally unacceptable. They wanted to know how the movie could possibly present them with this immense object but not properly explain it. I tried to tell them that the origin and purpose of the cube was not important. It was mearly a plot device in which to explore the relationships between the characters and exploit their forced intimacy.The two of them stared at me blankly.In an act of the purist optimism, I compared it to "Lifeboat" in that all the players were forced to interact in a confined space under less than ideal circumstances.The two of them got up and left, muttering something about this being the dumbest movie they'd ever heard of. I suggested they watch something more their speed. "Snow Dogs" perhaps.

Peter Gabriel - Growing Up Live - movie DVD cover picture
What a Show!!


DVD has stopped and I have chills in my spine (maybe Father and Son influenced me...). I was at one of the shows that were filmed and surely this DVD reports all the atmosphere that was there in Milan. I took my sixteenth nephew with me for his first POPSHOW and he told me that it was amazing. I've been waiting for this DVD from 8 May (the day of the concert), because they announced that the show would be filmed. Unfortunately they have cut many of the presentation (double language: italian and english) and some of the things that happened during the show. Do you want an example? "Here comes the Flood" was re-recordered at the end of the show, because the first take wasn't good. I think that if they let it on the DVD (a bonus-track) you can make a comparison between different version. I've heard some of PG's official bootleg and surely they capture the whole atmosphere that was created at each show. You can tell: it's the same track listing, but every night the songs look different.I read some other reviews and I'm asking to me: had these people seen the show by presence? They say they don't like the view of orange people. PG say (during the show) that without them there would be NO SHOW. The views of all the work of these people let you know what's behind a big tour like "Growing Up". You only can imagine what's the work of what once called black people; making them ORANGE PG let us know that he's not the only one working on stage and also what happen to all the stuff that appears and then disappears on the stage.

The Best Action Movie I've Ever Seen


These movies are AWESOME. They were the single thing that started me off on science fiction. They have everything: Unforgettable characters, great dialogue, a wonderful plot, and excellent special effects. Did I mention the amazing music? I would recommend this series to anyone who would like a start to science fiction that starts them off with a bang. I would recommend this series to anyone who already loves science fiction. Basically, anyone who owns a VCR should watch this series. It will blow your mind!

A Hard Day's Night - movie DVD cover picture
A Great Film


When compared with the relative merits of, say, The Marx Brothers' "A Night at the Opera", it's no more than their "A Night in Casablanca". Not a bad place to be, but still with room for improvement. On the other hand, when compared with the relative merits of "Spice World" (which essentially tried to be the same movie), it's more like "Casablanca" itself. What we have here is a movie that is most definitely better than it has any right to be.
Going in, I was expecting to notice many Marx Brothers comparisons. That's the hype, anyway. Now, John does a credible Groucho, trying to poke holes in all the hot air balloons he sees. His reply to the notion that the place is surging with girls ("Please sir, sir, can I have one to surge me sir, please sir?") is Grouchovian at its most bratty. And Paul manages to pull of a neat Zeppo impression (not the best brother to emulate, mind you; but to be fair, Paul is much more integral to the plot and gets off more wicked lines than Zeppo ever did). But George and Ringo don't follow the template at all. George is deadpan all the way, letting the surreality of the situations he finds himself in slide neatly off his back. When noticing Ringo's ire at a stagehand messing with his drums, George logically notes that "he's very fussy about his drums, you know, they loom large in his legend." Ringo, for his part, is cast as the put-upon little brother of the band. Many jokes are aimed directly at his whopping proboscis, and his lack of physical stature. It's all given him an inferiority complex. No wonder he plays the drums. "It's me active compensatory factor," he says. The boys are at their best when they play the scenes straight. There's nothing worse than a ham actor laughing at his own (scripted) joke. Thankfully, that's kept to a minimum here. They don't have the prodigious comedic talents of the Marx's (who does), but they certainly have enough to pull off the wonderful comedy in this script.
The Fabs are ably supported by a fine group of comedic actors. Wilfred Brambell is a suitably hammy as Paul's mischievous (and clean!) Grandfather. He even gets some fine scenes all to himself, most notably in the Casino and the police station. Norman Rossington and John Junkin are the doctors in the Beatlemania asylum (a.k.a. the road managers) and hold the fort well. In a smaller role, Victor Spinetti is funny and quite creepy as the prima donna TV director. All of these actors/characters serve the movie well, in that even though the situations are far-fetched, they are always grounded within the narrative enough to not seem completely ludicrous.
Besides the comedy, the movie's strength is, of course, the music. Luckily that, even during their early days, the Beatles wrote an abundance of perfect pop songs with which to pepper the soundtrack. The title song opens the action wonderfully, as we follow the boys fleeing from a throng of fans. The "Can't Buy Me Love" scene in the field is full of infectious energy, topped off with a great punchline (George's comment to a scolding busybody: "Sorry we hurt your field mister.") Also great are the "Should Have Known Better" scene in the luggage compartment, and the songs played at the TV taping. I guess it's not a stretch of the imagination to say that the Beatles were a great band. But it is nice to be reminded that at this point in their career, there was an exuberance in their writing and playing, that is captured in this film perfectly.

I didn't want to write this...


... at first because it is such a personal experience. One of the responses it provoked in me was an urge to go out and share love with someone like Wuornos, and I hope this impulse stays a long time. This movie hits you in your gut, your heart and your head.Last night I dreamed about this movie. That almost never happens to me.I am a thinking person, and realize that Wuornos was a lot chillier in real life than this portrayal, but this has sealed my position against the death penalty.If you don't see this, you are missing the "Raging Bull" of this generation.
