Rossini - Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) / Dario Fo, Zedda, Larmore, Croft, Netherlands Opera - movie DVD cover picture
Zedda & Fo are an irresistible combo


While a fine opera, the sound was terrible. Too much scuffling of feet and many times the voices were drowned out by the orchestra.

It's just not possible....


to offer a better Ed Wood package at such an unbelievable price.
It includes all the key films, in not pristine but quite nice prints, and with a really decent selection of extras. Each disc comes in its own keep-case, and with appropraitely cheesy graphics. An absolute must! Kind of makes you wonder why other box sets are so much more expensive, doesn't it?

I Love This True Concert VHS Tape - Thank you, Tammy!


This live concert was taped in 1986 in Wheeling, West Virginia. Tammy Wynette sings all her favorites in best form and she is supported by an excellent band. The recorded concert lasts for one very enjoyable hour. This concert is a must have for Tammy Wynette fans.

Cowboy Bebop - Session 1 - movie DVD cover picture
See It, Space Cowboy


Bebop is, to put it bluntly, quite possibly the greatest anime series ever made. Instead of just focusing on one or two, the series touches on a wide range of entertainment genres, from comedy to action to intense drama, it's all carried flawlessly by the same main characters, and throughout the whole thing, the flow is only broken *maybe* once (referring to Session 23, "Brain Scratch"). There is something in this anime for EVERYONE, whether you're an anime fan or not, and it's a shame that a great number of people in the US are still turned off to series' like this before they even see them because of cliches like Pokemon or horribly executed (pun intended) dubs like Dragonball Z or Sailor Moon giving them the wrong impression of anime in general. No matter who you are, chances are there's a character or situation you can relate to, be it the calm and collected Spike, Faye Valentine, a woman who turns out to have a lot more substance than shows on her surface, or the oddball Ed (Edward Wong Hau Peppelu Tetivrusky the IVth...she named herself). Protagonists and antagonists alike exist in by far more dimensions than any characters in any US animation (be it on television or feature film)...you might even find yourself understanding the at-first seemingly heartless and bloodthirsty Vicious by Session 12 (Jupiter Jazz, part II). As if the base content of the anime wasn't good enough, Bandai has gone a step closer to perfection with an English dub that's simply awe-inspiring. The case with most anime today is still a case of the original Japanese dialogue and voice-acting completely crushing English dubbing of the same series, but Bebop is a rarity where the dub not only consistently matches the sub, but sometimes, dare I say it, even comes off as *better.* The dub voices sound just as natural and the acting in certain dramatic episodes (especially the last two Sessions) really makes the viewer feel the characters' emotions. Dramatic acting in LIVE-ACTION films rarely gets this good. I only wish this voice studio would get hired more for this kind of thing...perhaps then, the state of anime dubbing on average today wouldn't be so dismal. If you're an anime fan, get this series and watch it. And if you're not an anime fan, get this series and watch it, because after you do, you will be. And remember: Don't...leave things...in the 'fridge.

Let the discussions begin...


This was a very thought provoking film years ago and now that it is not of a time far, far away it should provoke even more discussion among those who have never seen it before. I am anxiously waiting for the occasions where it will be useful and spark dialogue. I am not concerned about changes made to the film, though I love the irony of it being THX enhanced. To me the importance concerns comparisons with things like "Brave New World" and "1984". Here we have another projection, not utopian, though perhaps there are grounds for arguing so, but horrific just the same.

Space Camp - movie DVD cover picture
Kindled my interest all the way to Space Camp 1988!


I remember flipping through the channels at home and came across a preview for this on HBO. I sat down and watched it. I was hooked! When I saw at the end that it was filmed at the US Space Camp, I ran to the Post Office to look up Huntsville, AL's ZIP code and I sent a letter off. I got info. I worked hard the summer of '88. I was only 12 but everything I earned went towards my trip to Space Camp in Florida (which had just opened that year).
I remember the trip down there by van with my dad and two bothers. All the way from southern Minnesota to Florida by van. My brother quizzed me on every system of the shuttle and I wound up being Commander of my team.
What's this got to do with the movie? Well, if not for this movie, I never would have gone there. This movie inspired me to reach beyond what I think I can do and 'reach for the stars'. This movie taught me that anything is possible. I loved this movie then, but today I understand even more what it did for me. Great movie, great story.

glad this was made into DVD


i watched this when i was ten yrs. old. seeing it again has made me an even bigger fan. the 68 special lets Elvis' charisma and perfectly chiseled face shine. it also shows his vulnerability. i even saw a bit of nervousness coming through but once he starts wailing, he is truly in his element.
