Celine You ROCK...Keep it up


Celine was wonderful in this VH1 Save the Music. Yes, Celine was the best of all the singers. She made it come alive and not boring like some of the others. Celine is my favorite singer. And will always be. The other singers were great to don't get me wrong but i still think Celine was the best. Thank you Celine Dion, Gloria, and all the other singers for Helping Save The Music In School. You all rock... :)

THIS IS THE FUNNIEST MOVIE!!!


"Napoleon Dynamite" may not be for everyone. I, myself, have seen it 3 times, yet I know many people found it to be dull or pointless.
Let me just say that I feel sorry for people who think Napoleon Dynamite is stupid. This movie has such refreshing honesty, innocense, and pure humor; it puts those crude "teen comedies" to shame and invites the viewer to embrace their awkward years and recognize all the hilariousness that is often hidden behind stressful times of life. I don't think it's a matter of piting the characters or 'liking' the characters... I think it's a matter of relating to the characters and laughing at them and yourself at the same time, of gaining inspiration by the fact that Napoleon is determined to "follow his heart," and Pedro tries out for School President no matter how prepostrious that seems.
Napoleon, Pedro, and their friends may be dorky, but they have a lot more depth than most "popular" highschoolers today.
Seeing this movie will make you laugh and quote lines, but hopefully it will also change how you think about other people... perhaps those "dorks" at your school aren't so stupid after all.

Hilarious


This film in underappreciated. I really can't comment on the DVD as it is not out yet, but it looks good so far. I really just wanted to make one simple comment: the film did not bomb because it 'didn't work.' It bombed because it was released at a bad time(if I remember correctly, it went up again Batman and another box-office bestseller which I cannot recall just now). Another aspect is marketing. Just because a film does not do well does not mean it is a bad film; and a film that does great does not a great film make. Monetary success is not a measure of artistic success, and people keep forgetting that. Even critically-acclaimed films like "Mystery Science Theater 3000"(which even Siskel and Ebert liked) did poorly. Why? Because the company that released it spent no money on advertising whatsoever.
The point is, there are many factor involved in whether a movie is a success or not, the least of which is whether it works as a movie. Its success is usually based on controversy(put a lot of sex and/or violence in and people will generally flock to it), lots of explosions and action or great special effects(if i had a penny for every time I've heard "The plot [stunk], but if you just want to see good special effects..."), a famous star("stop bashing that movie! It has Bill Cosby in it, so it must be great" which I have heard before, believe it or not) or just the media ramming it down your throat.
I digress. View this movie and see for yourself. I can see how some people might not like it; it has little plot admittedly, and the jokes are downright silly. But if you like that kind of thing, this movie is for you. If you like the Airplane! films or anything with Leslie Neilson, if you like Mr. Bean or Monty Python, you'll probably like this movie. Otherwise, you might or might not want to give it a shot. Personally, I thought it was a great movie and can't wait for the DVD. In a comedy, to me, plot is secondary to whether or not it makes me laugh. For those of you who want plot in your comedy, check out "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles," it is really funny and has a decent plot.

One of the best movies ever made


There is only one word that can describe this movie. EXCELLENT! This is one of those movies that you sit down expecting it to be pretty good and when it is done you are left with a smile on your face. You are left with the sense that you have to watch it over and over again. Antony Andrews is fabulous in this movie and really captures the true character of Sir Percy. Jayne Seymour is charming, beautiful, and lovable. Both actors could not have created a more romantic atmosphere, which is essential to the story. Other buyers be warned, this movie will "knock your soxs off."

Field of Dreams (Widescreen Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
If you don't cry at the end, then you are no real man.


Everyone thinks this movie is about baseball, but it isn't, not really. It is about much more. It is about fathers and sons, and how baseball, since the early 20th century, is able to tie them together, even when they can't bring themselves to speak to one another. Every time I see this movie, I am reminded of my own relationship with my father, and the ups and downs we have traversed in our relationship. No matter how much we would argue, and antagonize each other, we always had baseball to fall back on as our common denominator. In this movie, Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is so haunted by the mistakes he made in his relationship with his father, that he manifests The Voice, which tells him to build a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. To show you how bad his relationship with his dad had gotten, Ray tells James Earl Jones's character that he once refused to play a game of catch with him. But by building the field, Ray helps to resurrect Shoeless Joe Jackson, his father's disgraced baseball idol, and maybe make a little bit of ammends. Ray gives Shoeless Joe, and the other "Black Socks" players a chance at redemption by being able to play in this magical field. Through other acts that Ray commits on order from The Voice, he helps others fulfill their baseball tinted dreams. The others being a writer, Terrance Mann (James Earl Jones), who yearns for the days of Ebbets Field and Jackie Robinson, and a country doctor and former minor league baseball player, Moonlight Graham (Burt Lancaster), whose one unfulfilled wish is to bat against a big league pitcher. During the movie, we are led to believe that he commits these acts out of some random nature, the only reason being that The Voice told him to. But in the end of the movie, we, along with Ray, realize that everything he has done is connected, and has a reason. And it all comes back to fathers and sons, and the dreams we share, and our almost spiritual connection through the greatest game ever dreamt by God or man, baseball. If you are a man, and as a boy you ever played catch with your father, then this film should touch you in a very personal way. If you shed no tear at the wonderful ending, then you aren't a real man.

A Story of Humanity and Survival - Don't Miss It!


Based on a novel by James Clavell, King Rat tells the story of life in a Japanese prisoner of war camp during World War II. This was Clavell's first international success and it draws on the author's personal experience as a prisoner of war. Beautifully rendered, the film presents the humanity and inhumanity of people placed in extaordinary circumstances, and the spirit of survival inherent in us all.
You simply don't want to miss all the insights into human nature the film gives us. The script is brilliant, the direction sure and deft, and the acting superb. I highly recommend this film for anyone who enjoys intelligent film making at its best.

Maybe one of the funniest ever


I don't get it...this is part of a great quintology, with five films that all link together in one way or another. "MALLRATS" is just as good, and better in someways, than "CHASING AMY". "CLERKS" is definitely the best, but not by much. In fact, I sometimes wish Kevin Smith could've found a little bit more money so he could've polished that film a little bit. The writing is brilliant, as is the acting, but it suffers from its homemade look. I know, I know...BLASPHEMY, but that's how I feel.

Beloved Heart-Warming Classic


Gwenn won an Oscar as THE man who spreads the true meaning of Christmas and embodies the spirit of Yuletide. Fox mogul Daryl F. Zanuck predicted a lukewarm public response when he viewed the film: he distributed it in the summer of 1947; it was still playing 6 months later when millions of children were posting letters to Santa! One of the great fantasy classics of all time, it contains particularly appealing performances from little Natalie Wood and, of course, the magical Edmund Gwenn.
