ZARDOZ DVD


I saw this movie, when it first came out in the 70's. I cut chemistry lab to take my wife to the afternoon show. When the show started there were maybe 10 people in the theater. About 10 minutes into the film there was maybe five. This is a great SF film, especially when you consider the time frame it was released. I could not wait to buy it when it was released on DVD. It is one of the SF classics of all time. Warning: this film is not for everyone. You might want to rent before you buy.

Signs (Vista Series) - movie DVD cover picture
One of the Best Movies I've seen in a LONG time


Signs was by far, one of the greatest movies I have seen in a LONG time. It was excellently written, and told from a point of view no other "sci-fi" movie has doen before, that of a single family experiancing the event as it was happening. It doesnt even have a clear genra either. It was part sci-fi, part thriller, part suspence all rolled into one. It was especially personal in the scene with Joaquin Phoenix sitting watching the TV waiting for something to happen. After 9/11 we all know what that feels like. This movie was down-right incredible, and anyone who didn't like it is simply retarded. Nuff said. Go out and buy this movie, it will be the best $20 you spend.

My favorite movie!


South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut has not only been the best movie i have ever seen- it is also the funniest and the cutest movie as well (besides the fact that it was pretty sick- but nothing a kid can't handle). This also brings up the point about this movie being for an exclusively adult audience- if anyone believes that this movie is too intense for their children to handle- i think they should reconsiter- if a child can handle it, that's great- if not then you they will probably not know what the heck the characters are talking about anyway. The first half of the movie is extremely funny- matt stone and trey parker at their best. the songs are incredibly cute, and it's just overall a really great movie that i will love forever and ever...

Scarface (Widescreen Anniversary Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
one of the greatest gangster movies ever made


Brian De Palma's Scarface is a colorful, realisitic and undeniable crime classic that inspired everything that came after it-- from Miami Vice to innumerable Golan Globus knockoffs to the work of John Woo (Bullet in the Head) to King of New York, New Jack City, Sugar Hill and more. A three hour masterpiece, it is also De Palma's best film (his second Carlito's Way teams him with Scarface star Al Pacino and more Latino characters). In Scarface, De Palma tells the story of Tony Montana, a dirt poor Cuban who arrives in Florida, sees other drug lords earning fortunes then begins his own rise to the top. The first act details his slow climb to meeting the boss. The second act details his dalliance with the boss' girl (Michelle Pfeiffer in her debut role), which leads to a Shakespearian "usurping of the throne." The final act details the reality of the late boss' life, the partnerships with drug lords even more ruthless than Montana and his "little friend," the M-60 machine gun (seen here in its cinematic debut, grenade launcher and all). Ignore the critics: they hated it upon its release, but today, agree that Scarface is a must-see.

Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan (Director's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The perfect Trek film.


The even movies in this series are the "real" Trek movies. ST4 had the whales. ST6 had the last of the old crew. ST8 had the Borg, ST10 had the Romulans and a clone. But ST2, ah ST2, that had Ricardo Mantalban giving William Shatner's scene chewing a run for it's money.
In fact, Shatner is relatively subdued for the better part of the movie. His Captain Kirk is feeling his age and faced with an estranged son that would prefer to remain estranged. Lost love and missed opportunities, and a tight reign from director Nicholas Meyer (Time After Time, ST6), help keep Shatner in check.
Also marks the screen debut of Kirstie Alley as Lt. Saavik.
The DVD package is put together very well. Once Paramount decided to start doing a good job with DVD special editions. They took it all the way to the bank.

Kill Bill, Volume 1 - movie DVD cover picture
'Kill Bill' tops the list for best flick of the year!


Wow, I am really amazed at this piece of cinema. I love this film hardcore. It's so bad..., it's not even funny (well, occasionally it actually is). The plot is simplistic as follows: A woman gets beaten severely by the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (DiVAS), and is then shot in the head by the head of the squad, Bill. She awakes four years later from a coma and discovers she has lost her unborn baby. She seeks revenge for the people who beat her and killed her unborn child. I can't tell you much more, but I have to say this film has to be one of my favorite flicks of all time now. Quentin Tarantino has done it again I believe, and he has done it very well.

What a great workout! I love it!


I've been doing the 1 & 2 Mile Walk Away the Pounds for a couple of months now, and I was starting to get bored. I went online looking for the 3 Mile and found this one. The idea of kickboxing appealed to me, so I bought it.

I have done it twice now (yesterday and today) and I love it! The kickboxing moves are fun and easy. The moves are interspersed with regular walking just like her other DVDs, so I didn't feel like a fish out of water.

It's a great workout. I felt powerful doing all those punches and kicks. I was sweating by about halfway through, and so were the instructors in the video!

Don't be intimidated by this workout! It's fun and easy and you will surprise yourself with how much you can do of it and how great you feel!

King Crimson: Eyes Wide Open - movie DVD cover picture
Pleasantly surprised


I was pleasantly surprised by both the audio quality and video quality, and the two CDs full of 'improv' surprises.
I'm a youngster as far as this band is concerned, having first seen them during Three of a Perfect Pair, then later for VROOOM, the ProjeKcts, the ConstruKction of Light, and the Power To Believe. This DVD chronicles the crystalizing of the foursome of Adrian Belew, Trey Gunn, Robert Fripp and Pat Mastelotto, with a CD each from the ConstruKction of Light tour and the Power to Believe tour. I was surprised at how, as with any King Crimson, each veers occasionally towards the stunning.
This DVD captures that ongoing thread, and adds an additional nuance to something I find hard to pin down, which is what goes on in a rock improv. In this case, the DVD provides random leaps into that unknown territory, a tremendous feature!
For it's price and the legendary status of King Crimson, it would be worth three stars if DGM pulled three stars worth of effort in the production, the visuals and the music. In my book, together they pulled four stars, and out of the generosity of the muse that this band continues to push forward, I gave it a fifth star.

The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
Star Wars was a B-Movie.


Unfortunately I have not read the LOTR books. I have read the Hobbit, however, so had some vague idea about all this before the film. And then I went to see it. Words, also unfortunately, simply fail me when it comes to describing it. The film is faultless. The cast are perfect, headed by Elijah Wood as worried Hobbit Frodo and Ian McKellen as wise wizard Gandalf. The story's praises don't need to be sung thanks to the legendary books that based it. The music is rousing and passionate. The ending is on just the right note to enfuriate you at having to leave, and ensure that you'll return for more. And even at almost three hours, I still wanted to sit and be told more. Peter Jackson's direction is enchanting, in one of the most picturesque epics of all time. And it is an epic - the finished trilogy will make the badly cast Star Wars prequels look like B-Movies. Yet it has so much more than visuals to offer. Everything comes together. It pulses with atmosphere, particular in the tunnel scenes when the Orcs attack... it's nail biting stuff. There isn't a moment of the movie that seems wasted. It feels like so much more than a simple movie, so much so that you simply don't want to stop watching when it's over. No doubt Two Towers will have just as well timed an ending. The question remains, will this dauntingly perfect masterpiece topple the matrix? I'm not doubting it. Because although that's brilliant, it's basing most on looks... and LOTR could survive on cast and script alone. It's pointless even trying to descibe the film. Just please, watch it. It is the finest movie I've ever seen. It is beyond perfect. It is beyond critisism. See it and be astounded.
