Verdi - La Traviata / Levine, Stratas, Domingo - movie DVD cover picture
Zefirelli's film adaptation is excellent.


Zefirelli draws our attention to the fact that the musical material at the beginning of the opera recurs at a later moment in the film by suggesting that Violetta is recalling the entire story. This approach is consistent with a musicological examination of the score and demonstrates marvelous insight by the director into the music. Zefirelli's great musical sense pervades the entire film.

Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire (Snap Case) - movie DVD cover picture
8 times in 8 days


Well, we've had this DVD for eight days now, and my 4-year-old has requested it each day since purchase. He is certainly loving the mystery gang, and I must admit that I find it highly watchable (even after the 8th time). For me, one of the more enjoyable aspects of it is the return to the "classic" characters, with everyone in original clothes -- Fred has his ascot, Daphne has her purple tights, etc. -- and, of course, the original voices. Nobody compares to Casey Kasem. For my 4-year-old, however, he just likes the vampires and "the part where Scooby gets eaten by the crocodile."

WWE Backlash 2004 - movie DVD cover picture
STop Writing Fake Results


Backlash wasn't that bad. Few good matches here, few decent matches there. It was live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Shelton Benjamin vs. Ric FlairDecent Match. But seriously Ric Flair needs to call it quits. 6/10.
Jonathan Coachman vs. TajiriNot bad. Better than what I thought. Coach pulled off a good bump. 5/10.
2 on 1 Handicap Match:Chris Jericho vs. Christian & Trish StratusDidn't really live up to the hype. Oh my beloved Trish what are you doing with Christian. 6/10
Women's Championship Match:Victoria (champion) vs. LitaMeaningless. Face vs. Face how stupid. Longest Diva Match on PPV. (Next to Insurrextion 2003 of course) 6/10.
No Holds Barred Intercontinental Championship Match:Randy Orton (champion) vs. Cactus JackFully sick mate. Best match on the card. I'm glad Orton one. I mean Cactus Jack: Intercontinental Champion. 10/10
The Hurricane & Rosey vs. La ResistanceJust a normal filler. Nothing special. Eugene made it good though. 6/10
Edge vs. KaneDidn't think this would be much of a match. With Edge having a broken hand and all. 5/10
Triple Threat World Heavyweight Championship Match:Chris Benoit (champion) vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple HVery good match. Not as good as Wrestle Mania. 8/10
Overall Rating: 6.5/10

Nothing wrong


There is absolutely nothing wrong with this dvd. It's just like the 1st one. I liked the special features like Sean Astin short movie was great and gollum's song was cool too. The making of the video game was great also. What I liked the most was the return of the king preview I can't wait to see that movie. I am also waiting for the special edition of the two towers i am sure that that dvd will be great.

Strictly Ballroom - movie DVD cover picture
The dance of love


Hey I can be a cynic too. I have always hated dancing movies with a vengence. But one night while channel surfing and nursing a broken heart, I saw an advertisement saying 'Strictly Ballroom' would be on next. I am also a person who disliked 'Moulin Rouge' and I knew that this was a Baz Luhrmann film. But I decided to watch it anyway. And from the minute it began I was captivated by its dazzling visuals, amazing dance sequences and sweet, if predictable, plot. Hey, I needed a nice romance. The story revolves around potential star ballroom dancer Scott Hastings, who ruins his chance at gold by dancing his own original steps during a performance. His extremely upset partner refuses to ever dance with him again, leaving Scott without a partner to dance at the big Pan Pacifics competition. But his chance comes in an unlikely package, an ugly duckling of sorts named Fran, a beginning dancer. Against all odds, they form a talented duo. I won't say what happens at the end, but it definately left this viewer happy. An Australian off-the-wall delight, this will definately please you if you like Baz Luhrmann or dancing movies (I see this as 'Dirty Dancing' without the annoying actors and convulted plot). And if you don't like either (I didn't), if you enjoy romances or Australian cinema,it's a must see. So get on your dancing shoes, sit back, and enjoy.

One of the most stunning movies of all time


The previews looked really cool, not only was it so far fetched, but I spent my whole evening racking my brains trying to keep up w/reading the english words which were being converted from a foreign language. My 5 year old could not stay interested and finally fell asleep because obviously he can't read. I will demand my $ back! This was a waste of time!!!!
