Z's Review


I didn't know a thing about yoga before I bought this DVD. I'm extremely uncoordinated and not at all flexible. Sara Ivanhoe explains each movement and offers good advice for uncoordinated, inflexible, first timers like myself.
I highly recommend this DVD for anyone wanting a good relaxing yoga workout, even if you don't know a thing about yoga.

This movie has the best martial arts sequences I have ever seen! The dialogue may be cheesy, but the action and good storyline duly makes up for it. Watch this movie if you love martial arts action!

Mouse Hunt - movie DVD cover picture
Good Movie, Fantastic Disc


Mousehunt Dreamworks SKG 1.85:1/PS/16x9/Dolby Digital
"Mousehunt" is a story about the brothers Smuntz, Ernie and Lars; two brothers who always seem to be down on their luck. Ernie has just lost his job as a restauraunt owner; Lars, well, Lars didn't even have a job. Then, one day, their father, who owned the biggest string factory around, dies. He leaves the brothers the factory and an old house. Not terribly impressed with what they get, the brothers suddenly find out that the old house is worth millions; the only problem is one little mouse that won't give up his house so easily.
I didn't catch "Mousehunt" till it was released on video, and, to my suprise, I really enjoyed it. It has somewhat of a warped sensibility and tone for a "kids" film, but I found it has a certain enjoyable edge. Imagine if the Coen Brothers("The Big Lebowski") directed a kids film and you'll understand into what territory you're headed. Performances are generally very good as well from British comic Lee Evans("There's Something About Mary") and Nathan Lane, who is amazingly much more funny here than in his failing sitcom, "Encore, Encore". It may not be for the youngest of kids, but there are many out there who I think might find this "different" kids film funny. The work done bringing the mouse to screen(a mix of real, anamatronic and FX mice) is also very well done. As much as I liked the movie, I also marvel at its technical work.
The Disc:
Picture: So good. So very good. "Mousehunt" is absolutely, positively goregous looking on this disc. "Mousehunt" is one of those titles that will definitely, or should definitely, set a standard for excellence in picture quality. There are absolutely no artifacts that I could see and the pictures contrast and clarity are outstanding; the shadows and light in the indoor scenes are also breathtakingly transfered to disc. Color saturation is perfect; images are stunning and vibrant throughout. Dreamworks has done an outstanding job.
Audio: Superb as well, bringing Alan Silvestri's wonderful score to digital life. Sounds are picked up wonderfully, from the mouse scattering across the floors or through the walls as well as scenes like the string factory explosion in the beginning. Even when the two brothers are smashing the house as well as themselves to get to the mouse, it's all brought to life wonderfully and richly.
Menus: Really impressively done. Dreamworks has put together a very cute main menu with Lane's eyes following the mouse as it scoots across the screen and back. Scene selection is animated and when you go to the next scene, a piece of cheese comes flying at you not only from the screen but through your speakers.
Extras:Again, a very good job. Both the teaser and full theatrical trailers are included here as well as a selection of deleted scenes(6 in all). What I really liked about the deleted scene menu is it tells you who the star is that is featured in the deleted scene as well as a sentence that gives you a general idea what it's about. There are also the usual texts about each actor as well as notes about the production. But, as with the other menus, I really liked the design.
Box Note: The box also has the little notes bar like the Universal discs have to tell you what kind of sound, disc, etc. Also on the box are notes about the special features. Well done.
Languages: English(Dolby Digital)/ Spanish(Dolby Surround)/ French(Dolby Surround) Subtitles: English Captions/ Spanish Subtitles.
Overall: Dreamworks was the last major studio to jump into DVD, but I don't mind. You know why? Because, maybe they weren't like this, but here is what I imagine after watching this disc: workers at Dreamworks scanning the internet late into the night seeing what people do and don't like; going through mountains of discs, educating themselves as to what is acceptable and what isn't acceptable, doing research upon research as to what makes a good disc. Then when actual production started, I imagine the staff going over and over and over the final product, making sure it's absolutely perfect.
A disc represents who you are. Dreamworks has made it clear that they are proud and that they stand behind their films. One of the best things I can say is that I was so impressed by this disc, it almost made me consider buying the other Dreamworks discs(I *REALLY* disliked both "Peacemaker" and "Small Soldiers") just to see if they were as good as this disc. A job well done.
Running Time:1 hr, 38 min. Region:1 Chapters:20 Disc: Double sided(Pan/Scan on one, LTBX on the other) Rating:PG
Grades: Picture:**** Audio:**** Extras:*** Menus:**** Film:***
Overall:****
This definitely has me excited for future Dreamworks product, like a possible "Antz" special edition as well as "Amistad" and "Paulie."

Best show about teenagers you will ever see


It's hard to believe it's been over 8 years since this wonderful show's only season aired and was cancelled. It was too good for a public who preferred to watch shows like Blossom that do not make them think or feel. Still easily the best, most realistic show about teenagers that I have ever seen (I am 38 years old). If you are in to well-acted, well written show that can (at different times) make you laugh, cry, happy and angry, get these DVD's. You will be in for a treat.

Magnificent (wes) Anderson.


This movie was a breath fo fresh air in a very stale year for movie making. The co-writer (along with Owen Wilson) and director of Rushmore, has made another thoughtful, funny, heart-warming film. All the performances in the movie are solid, with very good ones from, Gene Hackman, Gwynneth Paltrow, and Luke Wilson. The soundtrack (like all Anderson's movies) fits perfectly with the film itself. I have absolutley no beefs about this film, everything was as it should be, and I came away feeling very happy i purchased it.

Luther Vandross: Live at Wembley - movie DVD cover picture
Why God Invented DVD...


...when Luther gets to "those serious love songs" and takes his time on the classics "Superstar" and "A House is Not A Home" you will definitely appreciate the foresight of the many powers that be who thought to record this concert! It is enhanced by the DVD Video Surround Sound Mix--as evident in the mindblowing echo vamp and the background vocal sweetenings in "Superstar" and Lu's microphone walk-by before "A House..." And there are a couple of funny spots in here, unintentional and planned--Ava Cherry's full on go-go dance routine to Doc Powell's guitar solo making Lisa Fischer miss her vocal cue, Lu's dance steps in "Heard it Thru the Grapevine" and "She Won't Talk to Me",are mebbe worth a mention. Overall, though, for the price and it's sheer entertainment value...15 showstopping Luther, Kevin, Ava and Lisa live performances at one of the best venues in the world...you cannot beat it!
