shamelessly optimistic...just what the doctor ordered

Somehow, I have gone my whole life without seeing this movie despite its yearly showings. A black and white picture never seemed promising enough to hold my interest. Well, I have been depriving myself all these years from enjoying a cinematic masterpiece. A movie made in another time period, about something that is hardly out of date -- the worth-fullness of our own lives, and the optimism and hope that comes from knowing that we do make a difference.
But as sappy as this topic could be in the hands of a lesser writer/director, Frank Capra puts it into an engaging story that we can all relate to. Now I know why this is a yearly tradition in American households. We need this movie. Only if to remind us of how valuable we each are. Buy it, watch it and rewatch it.

Don't miss this one!

From the same team that gave us THE RED SHOES this film is a must see for those who appreciate a great story fleshed out by terrific performances in lush settings with phenomenal art direction. Made over fifty years ago BLACK NARCISSUS could be considered significantly ahead of its time in its unique use of narration, and subject. (Hint: What happens when a group of British nuns is sent from their cloistered priory to establish an infirmary/school in a palace formerly inhabited by a sultan's harem located high in the Himalayas? Watch and find out.) Atmospheric and hypnotic (shot in truly glorious technicolor), this is a movie you'll want to watch many times. Definitely one of a kind. Deborah Kerr is outstanding as Head Sister Clodagh. (With Sabu and a very young Jean Simmons in supporting roles.)

it was one of the best movies i've seen

hackers, the best movie of learning to use a computer. johney lee miller and angelina jolie put togather made the movie great. not did they focuse on hacking but on romance to. that's a great spin to the movie. the best parts, when they got one back for joey at that cop. best line ever heard crash and burn. i guess the guys can use thatas a pickup line on the girls. most direct saying pool on the roof must have a leack.

I enjoyed every bit of it. The behind the scenes portion is really illuminating and I recommend to anyone not thoroughly knowledgable about this opera. It helped me to reaffirm my preference for this kind of art.

God of Cookery - movie DVD cover picture
The FUNNIEST movie I've seen in years.

A famous restauranteur in Hong Kong loses his edge, and is tossed out of his food empire into the streets by a competitor in an all-or-nothing contest. Down and out, he is taken in by a cook at a street-snack stall, and together, they go on a quest to make the perfect snack food. In this quest, many lessons are learned, and many funny moments unfold. In the end, of course, all is well, and the epicure is reminded that all good food is soul food, after all, and he once again reigns as the "God of Cookery." One of Stephen Chow's best films, lots of comedy, and wonderful shots of beautiful food being prepared by masters.

Dubbing has ruined this movie. I will definately return it. All of the good lines have been changed from the subtities and they are all for the worst. Also all of the intensity in the sound is lost as well. You are better off getting the VHS with subtitles.

Reviewed By Alan Gerrard

A Private Detective story with a difference. P.I. Harry Angel is hired by the enigmatic Mr Cypher to find a one time singing star called Johnny Fortune. The case leads him down to the deep south where he encounters a series of people heavily involved in devil worship and black magic. The conclusion is so horrific that Angel wishes that he'd never found out the truth. A very original crime thriller. Recommended. END
