Xena For All

This Director's Cut of Xena Finale Series (Friend's in Need)was great, The Commentary with Lucy, Rob, and Renee talking about the Finale show. I like the ending much better. They sail off together one in sprit, and one in body.

Can't Hardly Wait - movie DVD cover picture
A favorite of mine

I cannot put my finger on why I love this movie so much. It is just another teen movie, but if it is on, I have to watch it. No matter where it is in the movie. Unlike the other teen movies of the 90s, it doesn't preoccupy itself with sex. There is more of a plot than "To just get laid". Ethan Embry is good as Preston Meyers and is a likeable character. Peter Facinelli is hilarious as the jock. Seth Green reminds me of so many people in my high school. Pretty sad, really. Jerry O'Connell is hilarious in his short seen as Trip McNealy, the sexual icon at Huntington. He gave me advice about college that I use today: "Wear flip-flops in the shower. I got warts all over my feet."

Hey brother

This is definitely the funniest show on TV today, even funnier than Curb Your Enthusiasm. All the characters are hilarious, especially Tobias, GOB, and Buster. I crack up whenever I hear "The Final Countdown" now, I even downloaded it for my iPod, that's how good this show is! I can't even count all the things Tobias has said that come out wrong, "I'm afraid I prematurely shot my wad on what was supposed to be a dry run, if you will, so now I'm afraid I have something of a mess on my hands." The guest appearances by Henry Winkler, Judy Greer, and Ben Stiller are great. Make sure you buy the DVDs and watch the show so we can get a 4th season.

A Christmas Carol (Colorized Version) - movie DVD cover picture
Must Have / One of the All Time Greatest Scenes in Film

I've seen a lot of versions of "A Christmas Carol", but Alastair Sim is the best Scrooge, and portrays him as completely believable in all spectrums of Scrooge's moods and states, which is rather difficult. And the scene where Jacob Marley screams and rattles his chains is still spine-tingling, even after all these years.
But most memorable is the Ghost of Christmas Present, when he reveals the two gaunt horrific children ... "this boy is ignorance, and this girl is want. Beware them both, but most of all beware this boy". And when Scrooge challenges why these tattered waifs aren't better cared for, the Ghost disappears into the night, shouting Scrooge's earlier words back to him ... "are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses? ARE THERE NO PRISONS? ARE THERE NO WORKHOUSES?", and his words repeat into deafening echos ...
Somehow the soundtrack of this scene in this old, old film is one of the most chilling and haunting scenes and most emotionally charged moments I've ever seen in any film.

Friends rules

If you wanted each DVD as it came out, this would have been the way to go. You would have saved a few bucks buying it all in one pack like this.But with the show coming to an end, I am hoping they will come out with everything all on one boxed set. That would be worth waiting for.But if you need them now, this purchase would be your best bet.

I went and saw Jerry on stage in March and someone asked about the DVD. He said that it is on its way and they're just taking awhile because they had to make commentary. I can't wait!

The Office - The Complete First And Second Series - movie DVD cover picture

Set up as a fake documentary/reality tv show, The Office manages to capture humour in a way we've rarely seen before. The branch manager, David Brent, is painfully pathetic in his attempts at being funny to garner popularity. You can just feel the discomfort and awkwardness that everyone around him suffers as a result (as the camera continues to roll following his horrid jokes), and this is part of the show's brilliance - moments that make you cringe and laugh simultaneously.
Each of the main characters are so unique and well executed that there's no sense of dead weight. There are definitely some very poignant moments from time to time, and it's these rare tidbits that make you care about the characters so much. Having found so much to relate to in these stories, these DVDs are hilarious and strangely comforting - I've watched them several times over.
A side note: there were two Christmas specials that came out after the conclusion of the second season which wrap up the story quite nicely, but these are not yet available on DVD.

Chariots of Fire (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
"Let us praise famous men..."

Chariots of Fire is an incredible film that consistently scores high on many a "best ever" list. The film contrasts the lives of Eric Liddel (played by Ian Charleson) and Harold Abrahams (played by Ben Cross) two men who competed on the 1924 British Olympic team. Liddel and Abrahams could not be more different. Liddel runs to glorify God while Abrahams runs to fight against the anti-Semitism that has dogged him all of his life.
The movie itself is a rare combination of brilliant cinematography (for which it won the Oscar), an incredible score and a stirring story that can appeal to all kinds of people. It makes for a unique and awe-inspiring viewing experience. You'll be on your feet cheering by the end of the movie.
The only criticism is the criminal way in which the DVD was released. It is not in widescreen. The "extras" are the trailer, production notes and scene selection. The film itself hadn't been cleaned up for DVD release either. Like virtually all of the other reviewers said, this makes watching the DVD painful and enchanting simultaneously. You love the art, but the DVD is almost so bad that it lessens the greatness of this masterpiece.
