Remington Steele - Season 1 - movie DVD cover picture
Zimbalist Rocks!


Yeah, yeah, Brosnan went on to work in The Movies.
But the show Remington Steele, arguably, only made it to television in the first place because of the accomplished work of Stephanie Zimbalist. She was the "name" when the series began.
That is why I tuned in. To see Stephanie at work.
She already had quite a resume of fine TV roles, I was glad to see her get a series.
And I watched every ep, and delighted in her character. And as time went by, the skinny guy:}, with the odd accent and great hair began to grow on me. Together, they were so very watchable.
Then the chemistry began to work. The writing. The timing.
Everything about that show worked. Adding Doris Roberts was a
stroke of genius. Kudos to the writers that brought her to the show. Laura Holt's wardrobe changes, the tweaking of the second season, all the fine tuning that went on really jazzed the series up.
We will never know for sure what off-screen enmity passed between
the two main players.
Neither Stephanie or Pierce ever let it intrude into their onscreen roles.
Well, that is until those last, was it 6 eps they and we were forced to endure<ugh>. Ghastly.
Leaving Stephanie Zimbalist, the Star of the show, off the cover is a grievous insult to true admirers of the show.
Whoever, ultimately, made that decision,I give you a loud and obnoxious rasberry!
But, we can't expect the "money people" to care
about what made the series work.
I'll buy it with only Pierce on the cover because I know
much of the contents were made memorable because of
Stephanie. Her beauty, her intelligence, her outstanding talent that gave us a truly engaging portrayal of Laura Holt.

This Is No Place For a Convertible!!!


Stanley Kramer and most of the Screen Actor's Guild members in 1962 all got together for a few months and created what arguably can be called the greatest comedy of all time. Yes it's long, and yes it's repetitive, but somehow it all comes together at the end, under that "Big W" in Palos Verdes. From the time that Jimmy Durante kicks that bucket, until Ethel Merman slips on the banana peel, the picture incorporates every piece of humorous schtick in the lexicon of slapstick, culminating in the funniest end sequence that has come out of Hollywood since Thomas Edison pointed his camera at the Jersey shore. Kudos especially to the forgotten members of the cast, Don Knotts as the owner of a blue Ford, Jack Benny and the Maxwell, and Selma Diamond as a voice on the phone...
Take a plane, take a bus, take a cab to the nearest copy of this video and be prepared to laugh for the next 161 minutes.

Moulin Rouge (Single Disc Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The Greatest movie ever made


This film is genius! It's a spectacular story of love triumphing above all else. It was so touching and emotional, I just loved it! The music is wonderful and contributes so much to the overall story. I didn't really know what a great director Baz is or what great singers Ewan and Nicole are until I saw this movie. I can't say enough about this film. It's absolutely fantastic and if you only buy one film you'd better make it Moulin Rouge!

Crunch - The Perfect Yoga Workout: The Joy of Yoga & Fat-Burning Yoga - movie DVD cover picture
Great way to break into Yoga


This is an excellent yoga DVD that is good for beginners and intermediates.
I got the DVD three weeks ago and I have done used it over twenty times already, especially for the Joy of Yoga segment, which miraculously releases any shoulder or back pain I had before. The back twists and relaxation poses at the end are a great way to end the workout.
Sara Ivanhoe is a very upbeat and friendly instructor. You won't get sick of listening to her day after day.

Date with an Angel - movie DVD cover picture
One of the best romantic comedies ever made.


Few things make me more sad than when a truely wonderful film like this one bombs and then goes largely unnoticed for years and years, with it being used to fill up shelf space in video stores and rental outlets, and few people even hearing about it or finding it, and even fewer actually getting to see it. It especially makes me mad when a super-cheeseball film like MANNAQUIN can find enough popularity to have a sequel made (of sorts) but not this one, which has similar plot themes (ordinary guy gets magical girlfriend) but is way, way better...like comparing a film like MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING to forgettable trash like MEATBALLS 3.

You fall in love with the characters and the story, and the film has several hilarious moments, like when the angel charms the attack dog from next door, and then Patty's dad comes to berate Jim and then sees the angel and is charmed by her mere presence, then the moment the angel and Jim go inside the attack dog turns vicious again and attacks the dad! (Remember this is a comedy, so the guy doesn't really get hurt or anything, he just runs away terrified with the dog chewing on his pant leg.) O.K., the film's one real weakness is the singing "Love Bug" guy, who is more annoying than anything eles. Otherwise, this film is pure enjoyment beginning to end. The music score is excellent as well. I just wish I knew how to reach the people who made this movie so I could tell them myself how much I love it.

This one is every bit as good as SPLASH and deserves as much recognition as that film.

Muriel's Wedding - movie DVD cover picture
a night with the girls...........


Muriel's Wedding is not just a feel good film its one of the best that i have ever seen. Toni Collette takes on the role of Muriel is is an ABBA fanatic who dreams of getting married, the only trouble she is fat, useless, ugly and surrounds herself with selfish friends. The film opens with Muriel at a wedding where the police are called because the outfit that Muriel is wearing is stolen, and so Muriel has yet again shamed the family. After obtaining some money from her father (due to a blank cheque), Muriel jets off on holiday and meets up with her friend Rhonda. After meeting Rhonda, Muriels life will never be the same. What follows is how one persons life can go from one extreme to the next in such a short space of time. There are wedings,funerals, sad parts, funny parts and a great ABBA tribute. If you havent seen this film then hire it out and im sure that you will buy it as its a film that you will watch over and over again

ReBoot Season 3


I've been waiting for these DVD's to come out for a long time. This cartoon is probably the best animation I've ever seen because it's computer-generated, making it very real. The plot of season 3 (part of which is on this DVD) is very well-thought out, and the characters are awesome (especially Bob and Mouse). I love the character development and the relationships that we see develop in season 3 too. The imagination put into the plot, the characters and this show in general, is pure genius. All three of these DVD's are going straight to my wish list!

SEE THIS MOVIE


Woah! I was blown away when I first saw this on TNT late one night. I now own the video, soundtrack, screenplay, and even a hoola hoop because I LOVE THIS MOVIE SO MUCH! Everything in this movie is magical: the sets, the dialogue, the characters, the music...... everything. The Coen Brothers' second best film, in my opinion (right after Fargo). If you want an incredibly surreal, fun, "what the?" afternoon, watch this movie. Don't expect anything but to be entertained.

Fantastic Video!!!!!


Our first child was born without the benefit of this video, and the experience was less than wonderful. A friend told us about "Having your Baby", and we used it prior to delivery of our second child. What a difference!! The labor progressed without fear of the unexpected and actually was a beautiful experience for us as a couple. We have a healthy baby boy and wnat to thank the folks who made the tape. We recommend it highly.
