You just want to be there!


When I saw this movie with my mother, we were both very offended by the sexual content. Even though I didn't like this movie so much, I give it 5 stars for Mike Myers' dramatic acting. I never knew that he could act so seriously and well. Its hard to believe that the same actor created and acted in the movie,"Wayne's World".

The Return of the Living Dead - movie DVD cover picture
Absolute Classic


This is a truly wonderful, wild, and unforgettable zombie film classic. Full of wild, outrageous characters and really funny yet gruesome zombies. It is a horror comedy and is very funny. It does add a new, fresh addition to the zombie genre. Its great that it is available on DVD for such a cheap price and I cannot recommend this film enough for zombie film buffs. Stay away from the sequels to this film though.

Superb in every way!


Amazingly, the screenplay for The Crucible movie was written by the same man who wrote the play: Arthur Miller. This adds such a personal element that many seem to leave out of book or play adaptations. Not only is the writing excellent, but the directing and acting were also great. The distinct different camera views add a sense of understanding for the viewer, and the performances by Winona Ryder, Daniel Day-Lewis, and my personal favorite, Rob Campbell, are so believable, which, after all, is the whole idea behind acting. So check out this movie, and experience the greatness!

South Pacific - movie DVD cover picture
A Hauntingly Beautiful Film


Hauntingly beautiful motion picture of Rodgers & Hammerstein's play, based on James Michener's book `Tales of the South Pacific' is full of atmosphere and has a strange mystical quality of far away places about it. The story is almost disturbing as the beautiful images of the South Pacific are juxtaposed against the background of W.W.II. The film moves at an enjoyable and leisurely pace but the viewer is always left with an underlying feeling of uneasiness pondering what the climax will bring to the main characters. This can be attributed to the dual love stories and the guilt, prejudices and insecurities felt by the two Americans toward their foreign love interests. Mitzi Gaynor as Nurse Nellie Forbush falls in love with the mysterious French plantation owner, Emile De Becque played by Rossano Brazzi. New arrival to the island, USMC Lt. Cable played by John Kerr meets and falls in love with the beautiful native girl Liat played by France Nuyen. The Americans, out of their environment are intoxicated by the almost unnatural beauty of the island thanks to Leon Shamroy's colorful and inventive location Cinematography. For me John Kerr's performance always stood out. He always seemed distant and truly disturbed by his own feelings. "You've Got to Be Taught" was a wonderful song expressing his feelings and Bloody Mary's outrage at his rejection of her daughter matched the ugliness of his own feelings. The images in this film are indelible and the overall effect evokes many moods and emotions. The movie has been critically misjudged and neglected for years. I think this has to do with the structure of the film. It is rather unconventional and does not follow a smooth narrative flow. I call it an emotional flow. The main character definitely appears to be Nellie Forbush given Mitzi Gaynor's energetic performance. Her concerns about Emile De Becque seem a little contrived, but that is intentional because in fact it should be. Rossano Brazzi is the mysterious Frenchman because we are simply told that he is mysterious. France Nuyen as Liat is very beautiful and desirable but even the viewer knows that a meaningful relationship with Lt. Cable is impossible. So all the emotions we feel as the viewer are pent up in just as they are in Lt. Cable. And John Kerr as Lt. Cable is really the odd man out. He is the tragic figure. He must either go back home or face his catharsis. The film has no strong main male character on the surface. Both men seem introverted and it is fitting that they both team together on the perilous mission. One man wanted to return and the other couldn't. "Bali H'ai" is a fitting song expressing all our feelings for what lies beyond the beautiful horizon of life and the examination of those feelings. "Some Enchanted Evening" beautifully expresses in song what can only be felt by the heart. This is a beautiful film. I never realized how good it was until I played it again just recently. Perhaps I am now a little older and a little wiser but the images in this film still hold a bit of mystery for me.

The high price of command


If you want to see how a real hard nose leader can turn around a "Hard Luck" outfit, then this is the film for you. I am always surprised how complex and realistic a film was made so soon after the last great shooting match in Europe. A great film and cast.

essential viewing - a masterpiece with riveting performances


''Destined to remain a dubious footnote in books of movie trivia'' ?? Reviewer Jeff Shannon, who I would bet would not warrant a footnote in any directory of influential film critics (thank God for that!) sounds like he would do well as a Bush policy advisor. This movie is amazing, with riveting performances from the entire caste. It is not only extremely well made with very convincing battlefield scenes and clinically dispassionate portrayals of brutality, and with a simple but telling script, it is also an all too rare look at the world from a different but necessary perspective. Omar Mukhtar was a real person, not a Hollywood hero. He was and remains an Arab nationalist hero. It is almost eerie how the film, even after more than 12 years, mirrors the logic of what is going on in Palestine and Iraq today. The more people see a film like this and are touched by it, the better they would understand the nuances of nationalism, spirituality, culture and geopolitics.
