Xanadu Rocks


I was 6 when this movie came out. I always remember the music because we owned the Vinyl LP. It was one of the best records we owned. I could listen to Olivia Newton John's voice over and over. When I got the chance to see the movie again, it really reminded me how beautiful ONJ really was. This movie will take you back to a time where things could just be 'fun' and was much simpler. I love this movie. Good thing I am not a movie critic because I would not be able to enjoy any movie at all.

We Must Not Forget Humanity's Heroes


Because . . .

1. Future generations will need men and women of selfless courage.
2. Our children need to be able to differentiate reality from fiction.
3. We need to take inventory of the motives of our actions.
4. We all need to know that heroes do exist.
5. We must not be blind to human suffering today.
6. We need to remember that light shines brightest in the darkness.
7. We become better humans when we feed our souls on such stories.

This is the type of movie I can recommend for any family to purchase. I have a friend who is a refugee from Rwanda. He and his family lived through this time. They lost each other for months and miraculously found each other again. This film helped me understand their lives better.

Charming


The Rocketeer is one of the genuine few movies that I can recommend without reservation to a family. Exciting, entertaining, and inoffensive. A rare trifecta that has an innocent and charming quality without being too hokey. The movie does fall back on some stereotypical villains but that is par for the course in a period piece set in the late 30's.

Hey everybody, happy Friday the 13th!


Well it's Friday the 13th, and what better way to spend a night alone in the dark then watching the first 4 Friday the 13th films. Now we all know this is the best, but recommend seeing only the first 4. Watch them alone in the dark.

The Wiggles - Wiggle Time - movie DVD cover picture
Infectious songs - A must have for Barney weary parents


Like most parents, the Wiggles promos infected our tvs through the Barney videos. I will not labor the cheap production value of their set. If you purchase their earlier work, it is even cheaper than this video. The costumed characters are silly and poorly designed. Now on to why I still give it 5 stars. The Wiggles are comprised of four young men who sing songs you probably have never heard before. Absent are the traditional songs like Old MacDonald. The songs are highly original and upbeat. They are simple and easy to learn. These four dance and sing with such enthusiasm. The songs never seem boring even after repeated viewing. My 18 month old and 3 year old love to dance and sing along. Their Australian accents may sometimes be strange to children but I think this exposure is important. I have never liked when English programs for children are re-dubbed with American voices. Children are smarter than they are given credit. The video is presented in short segments with a brief intro for each song. There is a short magic segment which can be boring after repeated viewing. This is the only segment with no related song. At the end of the tape, is a fifteen minute concert clip. The songs range from soft lullaby songs, animal sounds songs, to instructed dance along songs. The songs included on this video are:Get Ready to Wiggle, Here Comes a Bear, Captain Feathersword, Uncle Noah's Ark, Ponies, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Whenever I Hear this Music, Henry the Octopus, Rock A Bye Your Bear, I Love It When It Rains, Quack Quack, Marching Along, Dorothy's Birthday Party and the Concert clip includes: Wave to Wags the Dog, Five Little Ducks, Dorothy - Would You Like to Dance?, Medley. The children on this program are exceptional dancers for their age since they have been brought in from a dance school. The moves, however, a simple enough for the most part, for any young child to wiggle along.

Another hit from Bj?rk


This is an amazing DVD, it includes almost all the greatest hits of the Iceland's most known and experimental artist ever (just before her new disk Vespertine, released in 2001).The music as well as the visual impact is great and the quality could have not been better, each one of the fourteen songs gives something new to the traditional form of making a video just to promote the new single of a new disk from the artist, and join together the art of beautiful pictures with the atmosphere that just can be achieved with the singular voice of this strange woman. In addition, Bj?rk is so cute.

Yeah, F the bank!!


Man, this is easily the best set of DVD`s I have in my house. My wife and I stay up late almost every night and watch them and find ourselves laughing out loud! We first started watching it back in the 80`s when it was on HBO and loved it. We would occasionally watch it on comedy central but it just wasn`t the same with all the editing. The best part is that you can watch any skit you like and skip the ones that you don`t. It was interesting to get some history on the kids from the bonus material disc and hear how they got along with each other. It must`ve been a blast on that set. All in all, this was the best money I`ve spent in quite a while and I can`t wait for season 2. Go buy it!

Totally Extreme


I'm a Star Trek Fan, from Belgium. I've bought this DVD, and had already watch it on theaters, and i can tell you it's the best Trekkie movie ever made. Too bad something very sad happens in the end. Otherwise, the movie rocks and you can only be angry against the editor for cutting too much scenes in the movie.
