Good Bye, Lenin - movie DVD cover picture
X Filme/Creative Pool Strikes Again!


What a delightful pleasure this movie is. It's fun to watch, yet gut-wrenching in its honesty. There are moments of unbounded humor here, but the tone overall is one of poignant tragedy amid a growing series of obstacles which the main characters must face together.
The film wrestles candidly with absurdity: At times, the best action might be to perpetrate deceit, even toward one's own mother. The viewer--witnessing the mother's reactions to the increasing complexity of staged, televised, and recorded lies--wonders what she must think.
It's difficult to say who the real star of this movie is. On the surface, it appears to be the talented young Daniel Bruehl. On deeper reflection, the best candidates may well be the city of Berlin, the passage of time, or the rapidly-dying idealism one found in the East German republic.
I hope you will see this movie. I think you will enjoy it regardless of your age or political leanings.

Maze - movie DVD cover picture
Moving in a way that one better not talk about it....


My favourite sequence in "Maze" is when Morrow runs on the streets, silence behind, and "I was Brought To My Senses" plays in the background...this is one of the most poignant depictions of despair, and despairing love between two people who shouldn't have any romantic feelings for each other, on film. The pace with which Maze runs in the scene, and the haunting beginning of the song, which is sung without any musical accompaniment till the fourth line, are in stark contrast, but that is exactly what makes this shot one of the finest moments on celluloid. It befits a film on a touching subject.

THE MOST INCREDIBLE CAGE MATCHES!!


This is #16 on the top 130 greatest WWE DVD's. This DVD may be expensive but it is worth it. BloodBath is a great DVD to have, no doubt.

Triple H vs. Mankind was a great match and it was obvioulsly bloody. Triple H trys to use D-X to help him steal the match and I'm not gonna tell you the ending.

Edge vs. Kurt Angle was a weird choice to have on this DVD. Edge & Angle didn't have a great match but it was interseting and defintly worth seeing.

This DVD is great and it is brutal so if you can't take blood don't pick up this DVD because there is tons of blood.

The Thin Red Line - DTS - movie DVD cover picture
The Best Film of 1998


Briefly, I've written several reviews of this film, for several web sites and everyone here that has said positive things about it have captured the thoughts and feelings I feel towards this movie. So, it would be a little redundant for me to review it again, with all of the great things said about it.
But, I will say just this, Terrence Malick's comeback with "The Thin Red Line" is grand and sweeping. His style is etched from his two previous films and the period he made them in. If you want to watch a film by one of the great directors of our time, this is it. It's a not-so-standard war film, which I'm sure is pretty obvious to anyone reading the comments on this web page. And as such, Malick takes the freedom to interpret James Jones' book openly with broad strokes and he does so magnificently. "The Thin Red Line" was the best film of 1998.

Joe - movie DVD cover picture
An American Classic- finally, an anti-hero we can all love!


"...we gotta get this country off of welfare. Back our boys in Vietnam. Show the world we'll fight for freedom. But does anybody give a good goddamn?..." -Title Song from "Joe"
Peter Boyle's debut as the bigoted hard-hat Joe Curran should send a message that is as pivotal now as it was back in 1970- racism and hatred of counterculture are simply signs of confusion of the times we live in. His emotional depth that he puts in his role was more than Oscar-worthy, simply because he was a man of limited emotion and limited feeling. Joe Curran, one of cinema's first anti-heroes, is a lovable and favored character trapped in the walls of his frustrations. He was a man who needed an escape from his blue-collar existence. This is why we empathize with his flag-waving, freedom-loving persona.
"Joe," adapted from Norman's Wexler's worthy script, was a sleeper hit back in its initial release and a personal triumph to all involved (specifically director, John G. Avildsen, and actress, Susan Sarandon) and rocketed them all to stardom. To put it simple, the film is a swan song in waiting about the complex blue collar view of the hippie generation of the 1960's, actually being a film suitable for any counterculture generation. It shows how often confused past generations are with new lifestyles and fads, etc. This is an excellent film that is worthy of being a favorite of mine for years to come. It is a shame that it is has long since faded from memory. Although I somewhat differ from his opinions and idiosyncrasies, I love Joe Curran in my own way that is different from any character-audience relationship-- simply because he doesn't force the charm on his audience... and this is helped by John G. Avildsen's thoughtful connection. His charcter is what part of makes the final image haunting.
The story is of wealthy advertising executive William Compton (Dennis Patrick) who murders his daughter's hippie-druggie boyfriend (Patrick MacDermot)for turning her onto drugs and overdoses her on speed- resulting in her hospitalization. Leaving from their hip, low-class apartment (disgraceful for their bourgeoise existence), he meets Joe Curran (Peter Boyle) in a bar. He listens to Joe preach to a bored bartender about his racist and anti-hippie views. He identifies with it and catches Joe's ear. When Joe finds that Bill actually murdered someone, he takes him under his wing and they become unlikely friends. When Bill's daughter (Susan Sarandon) finds out that her father murdered her boyfriend, she goes missing in Greenwich Village. Joe now becomes obsessed with helping him find her (after a rather humorous dinner sequence involving Joe, Bill, and their wives). Their search takes them to a marijuana party that later results in violence.
This is a movie that our golden boy, Oscar, totally and unfairly ignored and underrated. These performances in "Joe" are top notch and tour de force and the direction is just as effective, even more than the 1970 winner "Patton." It was terribly and brutally underrated at the Academy Awards which is a shame. This is a beautiful film. Simply and lovingly accomplished. I loved it. It boils over in its humor ("Stop it, for Chrissake, you'd think the Pope was comin'") and steaming social commentary. It would be a noble gesture to restore it and release it to DVD. Putting it bluntly, it needs more attention and more of a following. 1970 was awarded with this fine gem.
This is the #2 film on my Top Ten list and Amazon.com has an asset with this sprawling "epic." A 10!
"Hey Joe! Doesn't it wanna make ya go to war once more? Hey Joe! Why the devil did we go to war before? What the hell for?" -"Joe"'s Title Song
This film is Rated R for nudity, a brief orgy scene, profanity, mild violence, adult situations, and simulated sex.
Is suitable for pre-teen viewing.

Three Colors Trilogy (Blue / White / Red) - movie DVD cover picture
I've waited years for this.


One of the sad things about owning a DVD player and having eclectic tastes is that more often than not, the films you want to see have not been released, and may never be.
This is a wait that was well worth it.
The films are incredible, and I am sure the DVD will do them justice, if the production value is anything on par with the original VHS trilogy. If your love of the noir/foreign/abstract/beauty/politico whirlwind is something you keep close to your chest, I wouldn't hesitate on this one, and especially for this price.
