Reno 911 - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Yay! It's here!


I honestly can't remember any episode where I didn't laugh. This is possibly the best unscripted show next to Mad TV and SNL. Although I can't compare Reno 911 to those show's because Reno 911 is only a 30 min show it sometimes is funnier than an whole hour of snl or mad tv.
I am also excited because the price is awesome $22 for Season 1. How cheap can it get? that is how all seasons for all shows should cost. I think there won't be any extras on the DVD seeing as how there are only 2 discs. There most likely will be extras on the upcoming seasons.

Fight Club (Single Disc Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Awesome Premise and Awesome Conclusion


Fun [stuff] about a man whose job is so immoral, he goes insane. Overlong, it lurches unevenly from Tex Avery slapstick to glib superficiality to the inspired, often in one scene. At it's best it resonates the observational rapping of best stand up comedy and it's brilliant sense of humour makes one forgive it's missed opportunities. Anyone recalling the abandoned six army of Germany at Stalingrad will find the absurdity, cruelty and farce of Fascism portrayed here as on the money. However, far from being a contemporary tract, it cheekily re-packages punk for those who missed it the first time while making oldsters nostalgic for their pogo-ing past. The central conceit of the film slyly changing the jobless 'no future' ethos of 77 to the 'no future' because we've got a job whingeing of 99. There's chutzpah for you, but it's still the same old, same old. The dyed spiked hair and anarchist posturings of Tyler Durden recalling you-know-who of the Sex Pistols. Also, the pantheist vision of a weed infested superhighway with people growing vegetables coupled with a socialist manifesto of returning to economic parity recalls the accusation of the time that punks were in fact the new hippies. It's questionable whether any victim of recent downsizing in the go-slow-bust technologies industries will relate to the protaganist's security of tenure and perks anyway, it's something of a chimera on Palahniuk's part. He has gone on to write further preposterous novels to mixed reviews and some disillusionment over his one trick pony-ism. That's probably why Fight Club, although superlative and engaging because it is hard to catogorise, doesn't stand up to too many repeat viewings. It suffers the same affliction as punk, that is, beyond the initial expression of frustration and anger there isn't a lot to say. Americans can only sing the one song, but they'll play it in hell, and seldom with the panache here.

An Amazing Film!!


This is the best documentary about a Serial Killer that I have ever seen! The director blends live action, special effects, interviews, and an excellent audio track in a way that makes other "mainstream" film makers look like amateurs. A must have at any price!!

This is a Shark's Tale


Dreamworks have done it again, with their creation of Shark Tale.
This is a very modern film and has familar voices such as, Will Smith, Robet De Neiro, Angelina Jolie, Ziggy Marley, Renee Zelweger and Jack black. it also holds the coolest soundtracks from top artists.

this maybe an animation, but the message hidden inside is to show people that we should appriciate what we have, for we might not know when it will be gone, it also teaches us that we should always be true to ourselves and not try and mimmick or pretend to be someone we are not, and people dont appreciate us for who we are then they are not worth appriciating.

So if you want a jolt in your day, or just a moment to laugh, check out Shark Tale

Better than I expected


I went to see this film after viewing the trailer and was blown away by it. I can't believe that most of the people on this page hated it, i thought that it was one of the best movies i've seen this year so far. I thought that the ending seemed a little bit rushed and it takes a bit to get going but apart from that i really enjoyed it. As for comparisons with Das Boot is ineviteble, it may be an masterpiece (I've seen it and thought that it was all right nothing really special.) Also i had not seen any of lists of the main cast and as such did not know that McCounerghy or Bon Jovi were in it and did not realise until the film had finished. The Acting was great, sets brilliant and the music terrific. An great war movie and extremely enjoyable.

The Simpsons - The Complete Third Season - movie DVD cover picture
Nicely Done


Simpsons has been on for so long now. The producers at this point (The Season 3) are experience, Homer's lines are improved from the sometimes korny jokes you find from earlier episodes. Bart too has better lines when prank calling Moe and ask for some one such as "Alk aholic". Lisa has as much growing up problem as ever, Marge too has had enough of this family. Sounds just like a soap opera, except it is well animated and I love the way they do the celebrities and their voices. Simpson also has a thought behind it, its not all about the tipical American guy and his son who defies authority and story about how the mother and sister has to deal with the mess these two make. In many episodes, you will find creators of the Simpsons making fun of the things you find wrong with the world. Chief Wiggum (corrupted policemen) is a very good example. Also, how people judge people by their looks in the "Stark Raving Dad". These character are characterized as some of the real human thoughts, some of them are very deep even though portraid in simple ways. How can a football represent the complex relationship between a addicted gambling father and a daughter who guesses every game right but still cannot get her father's attention. Also, it displays childhood friendship like Bart and Milhouse and display their trouble, also family problems between HOmer and Marge.

Elvira's Haunted Hills - movie DVD cover picture
Get's Better With Each Viewing


Elvira's long awaited follow up does not dissapoint. It is a very funny parody of the Roger Corman/Vincent Price horror flicks from the 60's. It does an incredible job of paroding them and sometimes it takes a couple of times of watching to catch all the jokes. But I have watched it several times, and while it is not MISTRESS OF THE DARK, it need not be compared because it stands up very well on its own.Elvira's Haunted Hills is very amusing and has a wonderful cast.It is pure camp and if you are expecting anything else you will be dissapointed.

It was too good to last


I was a fan of the French film (if you haven't seen it yet you should!) so when the USA network began promoting a series I was there for the first episode.
All I can say is that I was blown away from episode one. The fact that this was a television series on a cable network, working on a next-to-nothing budget never really made a difference because the cast and the amazing writing kept you on the edge of your seat. It was an unforgettable five-season ride for the viewers.
Many times I wonder if a network like Fox ("24") or ABC ("Alias") had run the series would LFN have gotten the attention and awards it deserved?
Now with the release of season one on DVD everyone who missed it will be able to see why LFN was too good to last.
BUY THIS DVD PACKAGE - you will not regret the purchase!!
