XXX (Step aside, Mr. Bond) Triple X is in the house!


Anyone using a 5.1 Dolby setup, will love this DVD, because the audio is superb. The DVD video transfer is one of the best I've seen. It looks like a superbit. Dumb me, I hadn't heard a word, about the awesome special effects. So, I was blown-away by the avalanche scenes. The cinematography in the overseas locations, was excellent. This DVD is an absolute requirement for every DVD collector.

Radiohead - 7 Television Commercials - movie DVD cover picture
just gorgeous


First off, I must say that my views are a tad skewed as I am madly, hopelessly in love with Thom Yorke. That said, however, this DVD truly is something that every true Radiohead fan HAS to have. And I've been a fan long, long before Thom bespelled me.Paranoid Android is brilliantly weird; a cartoon that evidently has nothing at all to do with the song, but nevertheless meshes perfectly with it. Street Spirit is probably the most beautiful video I've ever seen. Once again, no concrete "meaning" to it as far as I can tell, but it seems to visually express the music to perfection. Particularly stunning is the shot of a bare tree with stars wheeling around it.No Surprises is so simple, yet so affecting. I'm not even gonna try, you'd just have to see it.Just is one of those things that's been picked apart so many times that really there's nothing more to add. Unexpectedly powerful though. And an incredible performance of the song by the boys as well!High and Dry was my least favorite video, though I adore the song. Still a pretty good one though, enjoyable.Karma Police is disturbing and fascinating. That's all you're getting from me, go watch it.Fake Plastic Trees is one of my favorite Radiohead songs, and the video is lovely. I don't even know how to describe it; it leaves me with such an ache in my heart. And it makes other bits ache when Thom bites his lip...OK, so bottom line, if you're a Radiohead fan, BUY THIS IMMEDIATELY!! If not, you won't like this any more than you like the songs, so why am I talking to you?

Great Historical Footage!


I received a copy of this dvd that didn't work either. I contacted the company and they said that they had just started putting this on dvd and were adding it to their list of products, but they had a problem with there distributor, so theyhad made some preliminary copies to fill the orders. They have since then fixed the problems. They sent me a replacement (veryquickly) that had been professionally packaged and worked great. The video itself is some great historical footage of a martial arts legend. It's well done and well produced. In my opinion, it's the best documentary on Chojun Miyagi I have ever seen. If you have bought one and it didn't work, call them and they will replace it free of charge. 1-800-299-YAMA

The A-Team Escapes Again


"Why do people get a thrill seeing their name in the paper?" - B.A. Baracus (Mr. T)
I grew up with the Team and watched every single episode and I am thrilled to death to see the Team on DVD and re-live every episode again and again. I never get tired of B.A. and Murdock's antics or Hannabal's plans always working out orFace's scams getting the job done.
One of my all time favorite episodes was during the first season (1982-1983.) It was about a former commander and his daughter who get captured on a communist island and the Team are forced to rescue them after being captured by Col. Lynch (William Luckling) and then turned loose by high government officials in a top secret operation.
I look forward to a future feature film based on this great series and I want Mr. T to be in it!!!

Amelie - movie DVD cover picture
Exceptional


In a world of her own design, Amelie retreats from the unfriendliness around her. As she makes her way through the world, she meets with other outcasts, each with their own story to tell. Amelie's attempts to reach out to her fellow loners highlight this story.

Something of a romantic comedy, "Amelie" is extremely touching, brilliantly directed and wonderfully written. The sparse dialog and heavy narration are only one of the ways in which "Amelie" breaks with the norm.

Audrey Tatou is brilliantly expressive as the title character. Jeunet does an excellent job of telling this story using other forms of communication: photomat pictures, videotapes, garden gnomes, to name a few.

"Amelie" gives us a brief introduction to each character, which lets us feel like we're catching up with a story in progress. Once given some telling little clues into a character's motivations, it's up to us to make the rest of the connections. Each of the characters is worth knowing.

In places, this film is heartbreaking, and in other places absolutely joyous. Perhaps on my Top 10 list of the best movies ever made.

The Wedding Dance - movie DVD cover picture
This dvd is tops for wedding preparation


Way back in February, we were supposed to enroll in dance classes. Neither of us dance, but we wanted to dance at our wedding.
Well, the year went quickly. Three weeks before the wedding I remembered we hadn't learned to dance. I frantically went to Amazaon to find a dvd.
I bought this one because it had the moving together which sounded useful. It also had some good reviews.
It lived up to our expectations. We actually only practiced with it for 30 minutes, but were able to pull off a wedding dance that everyone at the reception thought was very good.
Anyone preparing to dance at their wedding can benefit from this dvd, I think. It is a great way to fit in some dance time during the busy wedding planning. We are recommending it to all our friends who are marrying next year and to our coordinator so she can tell other couples. It saved us...

City of God - movie DVD cover picture
storytelling and violence at its best


forget about boyz n da hood or menace to society, gangs of new york was a joke. This is the real deal, and best of all its all based on a true story. Rocket is a boy who grows up in the slums of Rio De Janeiro a small city called " City of God" and sees the harsh brutal reality that is life in the hood. Youngs kids and teenagers run the city with guns and drug deals is an everyday occurrence. The actors are perfect, story is flawless full of surprises and twists, both shocking and humorous.
This is truly a great movie and should not be missed!!!!

Ride the snake, to the end of time...


My only friend, the end... this is the most amazing film I've saw.The actors are very excellent and I saw this movie hundreds of time. I'm french and I've this film in original release (in english without subtitles)but there's no widescreen on the vhs, that's unfair! In france, all imported films have automaticaly the widescreen. Val Kilmer was the right man to play Jim morrison. Very good movie! A movie to have at home.

Wonderful and touching!


I saw the movie twice at the theatres, then later on Video and finally I bought the DVD. I did read the book first and eventough there are some differences the subject of how would be a first encounter with aliens is treated in the best possible way.
No fantasies or alegories but just a very interesting scientific point of view. Plus remarkable on this movie is the possible reaction that such an event would generate for the great public and the government. All the craziness and insanity reactions are just perfect captured in this movie.
Jodie Foster is a great actress and gives a touching and very sincere representation for Ellie, the main caracter in the story.
The extras on the DVD were not that great, I think they could have showed more about Carl Sagan and his legacy.
Overall, Contact is a great movie and makes you reflect about all the insane things we see on the media about aliens... I also recommend not only this movie, but the book itself as well as all the other books from Carl Sagan, in particular The Demon-Haunted World.
