comedy with heart

My favorite sitcom ever!This first season lays the groundwork for the brilliance that was to come.I was surprised that these early shows still held up for me.The Santa episode reminded me of the coming seasons,very funny but with heart and a whimsical fantasy all thrown together brilliantly.I never get tired of telling people how great this show was,and still is.Get this show and remember,until the last season or two when it had run it's course,there are some of the best sitcom moments ever on future seasons,and this season ain't bad.

It is a very wonderful movie.

This movie is definitely a classic. When I saw it for the first time, I was moved to tears. To watch Antonio go from being the happiest man on earth to being driven almost insane by a stroke of ill luck is to feel sympathy for the poor man. Existentialism and neorealism are very prevalent. Great acting on the parts of Antonio and Bruno, combined with a wonderful story make this an all-time great!

Perfect but for the lancers overalls color, and Nolan's reg.

I loved the movie, bought it on VHS, and finally got it on DVD.GREAT ACTING, plus fantastic CONTEXT of the period. Only sorry mistake is the color of the overalls of the 17th lancers, grey?, dark blue?, one doubts depending on sources, but definitly not cherry red (only Cardigan's Regiment of Hussars used that peculiar color wich provided the regiment with their nickname "cherrybummer's").Also for the sake of the script Captain Nolan is made part of the 11th Hussars when he was on leave (attached to the staff) from his true regiment the 15th Hussars...Probably minor points.If you are interested on getting more info about the Charge itself get Mark Adkin's excellent book about it and be perplexed to the detail obtained in a highly readable account...GREAT!.PS: And the cartoons ARE VERY GOOD! and with the aesthetichs of the time too!. A pity the movie was so antimilitaryst back then... (Vietnam time you know...) but I think it was well balanced as a whole because the logistics and generalship (specially the english) were appallingly low...One of my favourite war movies of all time.

It gave me nightmares!

The first time I saw this movie was when I was about six. Back then, it scared the crap out of me! I was afraid to go to sleep. Watching it now, I don't get the nightmares, but it still keeps me on the edge of my seat. The special effects are obviously outdated, but with a classic like this, you must look past all the glitz and absorb the story.
This is a great movie for those who enjoy feeling uneasy! I loved it!

Burnt Offerings - movie DVD cover picture

A family rents an isolated house for a summer vacation. Part of the deal is that they must look after the little old lady in the attic. Almost from the start, sinister thing start happening. One of the most effective techniques is the husband's flashbacks to his mother's funeral, in particular, a vision of a grinning hearse driver. Other memorable scenes include a swimming pool that behaves like a storm at sea and the house renewing itself by replacing its tiles. This is one of the most disturbing movies I have ever seen and it sure beats most popular horror movies for drawn-out suspense and psychological terror. This one stays with you weeks after you've watched it.

One of the Best Documentaries Ever

Errol Morris is the best documentary film maker ever and The Fog of War is his crowning achievement. The film explores the complexity of war and how it evolves. There is no political bias or agenda here...just plain truth and facts. Great work and a must see.

This film won Best Documentary at the 2003 Academy Awards and many other Festival Awards. It would be a shame if you missed out on this wonderful work of art.

Absolutely Awesome

What better marriage could there be then James Bond and DVD. Not only is this the quintessential Bond flick with the best villian and Bond girl but it ranks among the top spy/action movie of all times. Very little of this movie is dated so it will hold the interest of the young. The special features of the DVD will shed new light on it for the long time fan. A definite asset to any DVD collection.

Rumor of Donald's "racist" foul (fowl?) mouth is FALSE

If you really WANT to hear Donald saying what some allege he says to Daffy in this film, you might be able to convince yourself that's what you hear. But it just isn't true.
This movie wasn't made that long ago, folks; there's no way on God's green earth that a film comedy with a profile this high would EVER have made it to release with Donald Duck using the words attributed to him. What he actually does say is a variation on the same sort of stuff he has ALWAYS said in situations such as this ... and this doesn't include profanity, not today nor back in the 1930s. This movie does have some elements that will only be appreciated by adults, but they're either the sort of innuendo that won't register with kids, or freeze-frame moments that are well-nigh impossible to catch at full speed (and even slowed down, children will not see the significance).
I mean, kids hearing Dolores ask Eddie, "Is that a rabbit in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?" aren't going to get the full significance of the line, unless someone explains it to them, if then -- and they're too busy watching Eddie struggling to keep Roger hidden anyway.
For kids, there's little here that's more salacious than the appearance of Jessica Rabbit ... or Betty Boop, for that matter.
I do believe that, counting the original release, the VHS release and the first DVD, I've watched this film somewhere between 35-50 times (more than any other movie). If Donald were calling Daffy such a vile name, I'd know.
This film is just a masterpiece, a landmark in movie history. There are so many great moments that I wouldn't know where to start. Suffice to say this is one of those rare movies where every aspect of the creative talents brought to bear came together perfectly, from the music to the sets to direction to casting to the animation to lighting and whatever else you might think of. This is one movie that truly lived up to (or even surpassed) the hype and expectations built up prior to release.
The cameos by virtually every memorable cartoon character in existence in 1947 was unprecedented, and really adds both to the fun and the sense that Toontown could have actually existed.
Two favorite moments: The "singing sword" Eddie briefly tries to use against the villain (I'll not name this villain, just on the off-chance someone's never seen the film), and the torch song Jessica Rabbit sings (her singing voice is actually that of Amy Irving) when we see her for the first time.
I wish only that they had included the other couple of deleted/shortened scenes that were in the movie when it was shown on network TV.
