XXX (Widescreen Special Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
XXX-cellent action flick!


This movie kicks so much ass. Vin Diesel is in top form as Xander Cage and this movie is tailor made for him. Some of the best parts were when he steals the car and drives it off the cliff, when he's in that training exercise in Colombia, when he takes out the leader of Anarchy 99, and when he destroys Ahab. The action is great here and Samuel L. Jackson does a great job showing off his versatility playing Agent Augustus Gibbons. One of the most entertaining movies you'll ever see and definitely a must buy for Vin Diesel fans!

My God...


I have been a fan of anime for the last 6 years or so and I have never seen an anime film quite like this one. It is one of the sadest and most moving things that I have ever seen. The story takes place close to the end of WW II, and we see the suffering expeienced by Japanese citizens through the eyes of Seita and his little sister Setsuko. Seita and Setsuko's mther gets badly burned in a fire bombing attack, and soon after dies from her wounds. Seita and Setsuko are forced to move in with an aunt who is less than happy having two more mouths to feed. She constantly reminds Seita that he is just a freeloader and doing nothing for the war effort. Seita and his sister eventually leave the aunt's home and try to survive on their own in a bomb shelter. Things start to go really bd from there. This is a beautiful movie with some of the most beautiful animation that I have ever seen. It shows the cruelty of war, and that children in such trying times still try to enjoy themselves. Parents please watch this film with your children, it is a view of WW2 that many americans never see. please watch it.

Little House on the Prairie - The Complete Season 7 - movie DVD cover picture
WHOLE LH SERIES WORTH WATCHING WITH FAMILY


While I appreciate the revewers' comments regarding the dvd quality, I think they are too focused on details, perhaps a little too quick to criticize, and not focusing on the whole intent of the Little House on the Prairie show. Michael Landon gambled his "Bonanza" earnings on this venture when everyone in Hollywood told him a "wholesome" series like this wouldn't fly. But Michael stood his ground and did it his way. The show is his lasting legacy and his testimony to have something wholesome the whole family can watch instead of the trash that's thrown at us from the tv and movie industry today. And yes, the show even mentions God,in a reverent manner, something which, unfortunately, is a no-no in today's ridiculously politically-correct society. The Little House on the Prairie tv show did deviate from Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, but then, truth be told, her books were not 100% fact either. Big deal. What we have is a show with homespun values, where God, family, and home actually meant something and took top priority in people's lives. And as a homeschooling family, we have used the show as a learning tool in many ways. (And by the way, our daughter happens to be named Laura Elizabeth, after, guess who!) To sum up, what this show does is give us all an appreciation for our country's early days and the struggles, hardships, and joys they faced. To quote a line from a LH episode, "It was a hard life, but it was a good life". Every family should sit down together and view at least some of the episodes and then have "family time" and discuss the differences between "then" and "now". The LH show is a true American treasure.

A DVD Review


One of the best restorations of an older film around. All great movies 20+ years old should be redone this well. The sound was re-taped to 8 tracks and the extra footage, over an hour, was seamless. The documentary was only 6 minutes long and was more of a trailer for the restored Director's Cut version. The commentary is very good with the director commenting on the film plus you get J?rgen Prochnow, the Captain, commenting on his experience making the film and the producer of the restored version commenting on the restoration process. You learn some really interesting stuff about the actors, locations and other fascinating facts about this film that was over a year in production. A great DVD to add to any collection.

Not A Good Advertisement For The Tourist Industry In Ireland


This would have to beone of the most depressing fims I have ever sat through. It concerns the childhood and adolescence of writer Frank McCourt who grrew up in Limerick , Ireland. In that dump of a town Limerick it is always raining or it is going to rain. We see Frank's father as a hopeles alcoholic who never actually got off his lazy drunken ass to get a job and support his family. Then he abandons his family when his wife refuses to grant him anymore sexual satisfaction. Both him and his wife can afford to smoke tailor made cigarettes but they can't afford to pay the rent or feed their kids.One gets the impression that the condom manufacturers would find a HUGE market in Ireland. I give this movie 5 stars because Frank had the sense to jump on a boat and head to the USA where he everntaully found a job as a teacher and then a career as a successful writer.
