From Dusk Till Dawn - movie DVD cover picture
Awesome vampire movie as well as the collector's edition DVD



Two outlaw brothers, Seth Gecko ( George Clooney) and Richie Gecko ( Quentin Taratino) are on a fun crime spree as the FBI is looking for them. They take hostage of a traveling former preacher named "Jacob" ( Harvey Keitel) with his family ( Juliet Lewis and Ernest Liu) down to Mexico, over there they hide out in a sleazy strip bar in order to meet someone important to Seth. However, the bar isn't was it's cracked up to be, it is a den of vampires lead by the evil Santanco Pandemonium ( Selma Hayak) as Seth & company must battle against the bloodsucking fiends.

A wild and over-the-top action/horror thriller from director Robert Rodriguez and writer/co-star Quentin Tarantino that entertains and grosses out the viewer. It's very violent and gory to the max, but what works for this movie is that it's two parts of at first as a action movie then on the second half it's a vampire movie. The vampires are definitely awesome looking in this movie, so is Latin American beauty Selma Hayak in that bikini just sizzling the screen as the queen of the vamps, legendary make-up artist Tom Savini does a supporting role as Sex-Machine with explotitation vet Fred Williamson. The film is definitely one for the fans of George Romero's living Dead trilogy, Evil Dead, Re-Animator, Lucio Fulci, Tarantino, and Dead Alive.

This two-disc collector's edition is just as cool as the movie itself! there is great picture & mind-blowing sound quality to add to it, the extras are just exceptional such as an informative commentary by Taratino and Rodriguez, trailer, TV Spots, featurettes, still gallery, music video, alternate & deleted scenes ( Some which had to be cut out to avoid an "NC-17" rating) and the first disc is a full length documentary "Full Tilt Boogie" on how the film was made from beginning to end.

A must have DVD for the fans of gore flicks, Tarantino movies, vampire movies, action and horror comedies everywhere! but not for the squeamish.

Great Films for Children 5&UP


This is a very clever film! A good introduction to the
workings of the human body.
And it manages to do that in a very entertaining way. Adults will
find it very entertaining too.
Bill murray plays a man with some medical problems, and the
effects on his body are shown in animation. The members of
his immune system are a lot of fun
I've watched it several times and I continue to enjoy it.

A Christmas Story (Full Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
By Far the Absolute BEST!


"A Christmas Story" is my all-time favorite movie so there is absolutely nothing bad I can say about it!
Set in the 1940's, the story revolves around Ralphie, a nine-year-old growing up in the midwest, who only wants one thing for Christmas: a bb gun. The movie follows Ralphie, his friends, and family through hilarious adventures, most of them revolving around the bb gun.
Laughs abound in this movie and you can't help but cheer for Ralphie when he finally receives his coveted Christmas gift.
Every Christmas I watch this movie and still cannot get enough of it. Although I own it both on VHS and DVD, I can't help but watch the 24-hour marathon on TNT on Christmas Eve.
This is one movie that is a classic and will be loved for many generations to come! I STRONGLY recommend watching this movie! I know there will not be one thing you dislike about it!

Superb


Robin Williams turns in a lovely, quiet, understated performance which is extremely effective. De Niro, as usual, completely immerses himself in his character, and is truly heart-breaking to watch. The supporting cast and direction are excellent. If you're in the mood to be truly moved, this is the movie for you.

This is a stunning film. Dramatic, and action packed.


I saw this film for the first time a while back, and fell in love with it. I even missed major parts, and still found it amazing. The detailed animation, and complex storyline left me dying for more, and I've tracked it to it's orgins in comic form. This film is one of my all time favorites. A must see for anime fans.

Light, but does the job...


A neat throwback to the war/adventure stories of a bygone era. The movie is fun, tense, and engaging with great, realistic performances. They took great liberties with the story, but it's not claiming to be a documentary. All in all, it only attempts to be a crackling thriller and on that level it succeeds. For a fun/historical treat watch the movie, then tour the U-505 at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry.

A Class seldom seen....


Can not think of one thing I do not like about this movie....Grace Jones overpowers you by sheer presence and by not saying one word!!! This movies starts up like a silly teeny scary movie; but the music; the atmosphere; the performers; and even the sorrority guys are utterly believable. This movie simmers along untill Katrina ( Grace Jones) is performing on stage; after that ...nothing is the same again. The one liners I still remember to this day...and they are countless.A movie to buy...and watch over and over again. Amazing musical score...

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME MUSICIANSHIP!


I have quite a few live music DVDs and from start to finish, this is one of the best. The musicianship is outstanding on all accounts. Vocals are in the zone. Lukather's guitar work is fantastic, but his bandmates shine as well. The finale of "White Sister" really rocks. The arrangement of "Africa" is excellent. If you like Toto and have a DVD player, especially one with Dolby Digital surround sound, crank it up. This one is well worth it.
