Zany Film!


Based on Joseph Heller's book, this zany film captures the insanity and absurdity of Army life during World War II. Great acting by Alan Arkin, Martin Balsam, Richard Benjamin, and Bob Newhart. The script by Buck Henry is brilliant.--Diana Dell, author, "A Saigon Party: And Other Vietnam War Short Stories."

Max Fleischer's Famous OUT of the Inkwell Bonus Edition - movie DVD cover picture
AN AMAZING PRODUCTION


Reviewer: bookhound99 (see more about me) from Beacon, NY USA Ray Pointer has outdone himself! " Max Fleischer's Famous Out of the InkWell" Vols. 1 and 2 is a very inspired and wonderfully undertaken venture. Mr. Pointer has not only presented us with the animation stylings of Max Fleischer and the directorial talents of his brother Dave Fleischer, but has included some biographical information in the form of an introduction/narration about the history of the Fleischer brothers. Mr. Pointer has also included insights from Berny Wolf (an animator working for the Fleischers, and Max's nephew Bernard Fleischer.
As far as the visual and audio quality of this production, to quote Jerry Beck (Animation Authority/Historian) "The print quality is the best...and the transfers are excellent." Ray Pointer also makes the very best use of sound effects and music (by Winston Sharples, Fleischer cartoon music composer) which, to quote animation instructor Brian LeMay, "...didn't intrude on the original animation..." and gives each cartoon a wonderfully authentic period feel.
The fact that the original "Out of the InkWell" releases on VHS (which were the inspiration for the DVD for Volumes 1 and 2...go to [a website]...won the "GOLD AWARD in the Entertainment Category for the Houston International Film and Video Festival in 2001 and 2003" is only the icing on the cake.
Thank you Ray, for preserving this piece of history and for giving us an insight into the mind and talents of Max Fleischer!"

Another Possibility


Great film!!! Another possible interpretation: ***SPOILER*** Ozon has a website and there are discussions about Julie representing a character in Sarah's mind. I initially interpreted a much simpler meaning...Julie was just a girl living at the country house, not really the publisher's daughter, whom Sarah thought it was all along. She was tricked, and for the better. Much simpler than the whole psychological alter ego and symbolic representations. Anything is possible.

A Must See Movie


Love and Basketball is an outstanding movie that everybody should see. I believe that someone of any age, race, or gender could watch this movie and thoroughly enjoy it. If you are in to sports or in to romance it could fulfill either one. Monica plays an excellent part. I'm sure there are thousands of girls out there right now who want to be just like her after watching this movie. She proves to everybody than even thought she is a girl she can play as good as anyone else. At the beginning she proves that not only can she play, she can play better than most boys and is just as tough as they are. She is a great inspiration and role model in this film. She displays courage, discipline, and power. She shows that no matter how far away your goal may seem, you can achieve it if you just believe in your self. She is a hard worker and never gives up. She explains that whatever it is that you want in life go after it. Don't ever give up on your hopes and dreams. Let's not forget Quincy though, who plays a very important role in this movie. He is an outstanding ball player too. Together they show, that even when your serious about sports, you can still make time for love. This movie isn't like others, where all the characters live this perfect life. This film teaches real life-like lessons. The characters do have obstacles that they have to overcome. They have to work for what they get, and it doesn't just get handed to them. They have their ups and downs, and their lives are far from perfect. It is an excellent movie from the beginning to the end. I would recommend this movie to everyone!

From Dusk Till Dawn - movie DVD cover picture
quite a few audiences where shocked...


i loved this film. i remember seeing it on a matinee showing and there were two old ladies that sat in the front row from where i was seated. When the vampires scenes flashed on the screen they imediately got up and left. I laughed they must've either thought they were watching a drama movie or they got in the wrong theather. I heard one of them say,"wahh!! lets get outa here!!" Anyway, Quentin Tarantino is awesome, an i love Juliet Lewis too. You can only wish Hollywood produces more films of this kind that are excellently made and you get your money's worth. The kind you'll be talkin about with your friends long after you leave the movie house.

Pulp Fiction - movie DVD cover picture
... PLEASE READ MY REVIEW


... Definately Quentin Tarantino at his best i think it dosnt even come close to resevoir dogs and jakie brown (still very good though). Pulp Fiction has been described as a love/hate film depending on your perseption of the film it can be exceedingly and consistently funny or it can be pointless abusive and full of mindless violence but in my oppinion you need to see beyond the violence and loosen up a bit.
This film is NOT for the squimmish or faint-hearted with a gay rape scene in the back of the pawn shop and the scene when vincent vegas (John Travolta) "shoots up" and you see a close up of him preparing and injecting heroin, neither of these scenes i found particularly offensive but if taken the way they are ment to be taken (as just another scene) they are not offensive at all, and no you cannot say this is "glorifying drugs" as later on in the film mia wallace over doses and nearly dies.
The other things that make this film so spectacualar are the amazing ensemble cast with, John Travolta(FACE/OFF, Bruce Willis(ARMAGEDDON), Samuel L. Jackson(THE NEGOTIATOR and Tim Roth(PLANET OF THE APES). not only a great cast but a great soundtrack with performances from Dusty Springfield, Chuck Berry, Al Green.
this film is an all time golden classics its out there with charlie chaplain and the marx brothers.

The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring (Widescreen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The greatest work of imaginative fiction of the century!


special effects: outstandingacting: goodconclusion: terrible
this movie was good, ill say that. But the ending...jesus christ...it just, stopped.
The movie started out srtong in the opening scenes, but started to slowly decline after that. It picked itself up about half or 2/3 of the movie through... and just as the charicters started to develop, it ended. I was hoping for some sort of conclusion to the movie but it was (as I expected) a cut short cliche, to make you come back next year. People are blowing this movie way out of porportion...its good...but its not the best. Its not the second coming people, get a grip...its a movie. If your not into LONG, boring, 3 hour, fantasy movies don't go see this, because thats all it is... your not missing much.

Lots of fun!


These folks who gave this film one star just did not get it. I don't know if they expected Ghostbuster Bill Murray or Caddyshack Bill Murray. This is not that type of film. What it is is hilarious in a more subtle way. Bill Murray's performance here is sublime.
