Best in Show at AFFD


This film, while woefully under appriciated at the festival I saw it at, by far deserved a best screen play award. It's lively and funny dialoge is boosted by the outrageously funny characters and situations plus one of the most perfect endings to this kind of comedy I've seen in a long time.

Some strong language and bloody violence make this otherwise sweet hearted romantic comedy more for the adult crowd.

Dont expect too much in terms of redeeming diadatic value here, this film is simply for fun and a lot of fun it is.

Do you believe now!?


Who out there who is a child of the 80's does not remeber this transformers as one of the defining cartoons of our generation? Silverhawks, Transformers, Robotech, Gi-JOE, He-Man, and a few others are the cartoons that molded the children of the late 70's. I am now 25 and all I can say that I am buing this for memories as much as I am buing it for one of the best cartoons ever made! I will agree that transformers is not Robotech quality but so many great stories of courage and friendship what else can you ask for! Now all we need is GI-JOE, and the rest of the "V" Series of TV and Movies to come in to DVD!!!!

A Great Film!


"Claudine" is one of those rare films that no matter how old it is, it always seems to get better each time you watch it.
This film centers around a mother of six, Claudine, and struggles with raising her children, earning enough money, fighting the "system", and handling her love life. James Earl Jones and Diahann Carroll did excellent jobs of playing the lead roles.
I would highly suggest this film! It's full of all the things that make a movie truly great!

Ever After - A Cinderella Story - movie DVD cover picture
Enchanting


I'm usually not the type of person who will watch a movie advertised as "a modern-day Cinderella story"...I mean, c'mon, Cinderella is such a wimp, crying and waiting for the fairy godmother to come and rescue her, and being pushed around by those stepsister's. But, I assure you, Drew Barrymore's Danielle is no such girl. She has backbone, and strength, and charm, too. The characters are played by great actors, and have more depth than in the traditional legend. It manages to be romantic but not sappy, as well as gut-splittingly funny.

Farscape - Season 1, Collection 1 (Starburst Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The Best Thing to Ever Happen to Me


I absolutely love Farscape but have been fretting to buy the super expensive box set seasons for over 100 dollars. I went to a store one day and found this. I actually boiught iit for 12.99 and got the first seven eps of season one. If it continues the same way, i'll get the whole seasons for less than 40 dollars!!! And let me tell you, This show is wonderful. Best scifi show ever made.

The special features are great too. Commentaries by the cast all over the place and documentaries and the such. It's ep without commercials is 50-51 minutes in length, multiply that by 7 and its well worth 13 bucks, or even 25.

This set spans from John Chritons (human) experiment to use the gravity from earth to launch his module (Farscape I) into space at very swift speeds. This ends badly when he is hit by a wave of radiation and sucked through a wormhole where he comes upon a battle against the Peacekeepers (intergalactic tyrannical law) and a Leviathan escaped prisoner transport. Needless to say, he accidentally kills the son of the Peacekeeper leader and joins the prisoners and are on the run.

If you do not own any Farscape, get this and be introduced to one of the most compelling shows, scifi or not, in the history of television.

Ya gotta love it!


I'm usually a very conservative person, but I thought this movie about DRAG QUEENS (of all liberal things) was one of the best comedies I have ever seen. Not only was the acting excellent, the music totally grooves you (though I was hoping the soundtrack would have more of the songs they used in the movie), and the whole movie is very quotable. It's not for children or people who can't see the humor in things that they might not like, but for those who are open-minded, I recommend this movie enthusiastically.

The Mary Tyler Moore Show - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Wow


At last, one of the greatest television series of all time gets the treatment it deserves. The episodes in this set shine with bright, vibrant colors, unlike the washed out tones we've seen in syndication and on cable. Plus it's nice to know that you're seeing the complete episodes as opposed to ones that have been trimmed to fit in more commercials.
While this boxed set is more expensive than some of the others devoted to classic television shows, the slightly higher cost is more than justified by an entire disc of supplemental material. (MASH and ALL IN THE FAMILY, for example, do not include anything beyond the season's episodes.) The 90 minute documentary features new interviews with the cast as well as many members of the original creative team. It is well put together as well as informative. It is also the best of the recent "Making of MTM" specials that have run on CBS, TVLand, and A & E.
Other extras include CBS promos, Emmy Award clips, a trivia challenge, and commentaries on three of the 24 episodes. The CBS promos are not for specific episodes, but instead are fun, funky, pre fall season spots drawing attention to the then unaired MTM and the CBS season ahead. The Emmy Award clips include funny banter between Lucille Ball and Jack Benny as they present Ed Asner and Valerie Harper their awards. The interactive trivia challenge has a different person involved with the MTM show - either in front of or behind the camera - asking each multiple choice question. And in one of the commentaries, you can even hear the story of how the MTM kitten logo came to be.
This boxed set is truly a must have for television fans!
