Madonna - Truth or Dare - movie DVD cover picture
madonna is the queen of 'music'


This is the famous account of the 1990 Blond Ambition Tour, complete with lots of backstage and hotel footage, sometimes bringing in the famous such as Warren Beautty, who in one memorable scene complains about madonna's desire to always be infront of a camera. The live footage is pretty hot, shot during some of the blond ambition american tours. The version of 'like a virgin' is delightfully sleazy. for an insight into the life during a major concert series, an insight into madonna, and for the spectable of various sizeable egos colliding, THIS IS A MUST SEE! it is not as honest as it purports to be, but it is the closest as any preformer is likely to let his/hers audience

Absolutely Brilliant!


Get your hands on this before the cheap immitation American version hits the screen here in the USA.......There is no way they could find a new cast 1/10th as funny as the employees of the original Wernum/Hogg. Subtle but flawless gags make this show funnier than anything else you have seen on television in the last 5 or 6 years (however long it has been since Seinfeld left the air).PS- Does anybody know if the Christmas specials will be included on this dvd?

THIS FILM IS INVOLVES COMEDY AND ROMANCE.


This film was one of my high lights of 1998. Not only did it involve romance and comedy, it also it involved a man getting hurt which is quite unusual these days, as films deal with women getting hurt more. The film made me laugh, made me cry and made me sing along to familar songs from the 80's.

Cheesey and delightful


This movie captures Hollywood's bizarre obsession with the Carribean and South America in the 30's and 40's. The muscial numbers are silly and fun. Check out Gene Kelly's decade transcending thighs! One one his numbers involves a kiss with a lit cigarrette in his mouth. Light movie, lots of fun.

Big, big fun


Die Harder is one of my favorites. There is a lot lot lot of action and thrill, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. There are also a lot of laughs.

Excellent.


De Niro's got a real gift for directing; I wish he'd do it more often.
This is a moving story about a son's conflict between the two men he looks up to. I particularly like the fact that the gangster isn't all bad, and the father's not a saint.
Beautifully-crafted, flesh-and-blood characters. If you like movies about real people, you'll love this one.

Tolkien must be smiling


I can't imagine that J.R.R. Tolkien would not be happy with this translation of his book. Peter Jackson has done a magnificent job of making the books come to life. This last installment of the Trilogy was incredible in scope and action. The director smoothly transitioned us back and forth between Frodo and Samwise's incredible trek to destroy the ring at Mount Doom and the fight of Arogorn for his throne and the destruction of Sauron. The battle scenes were unbelievable. The special effects were great. The number and types of creatures filled one with awe. The acting, scenery, sets, music, and all facets of this film are magnificent. I loved it all. The softer ending with Sam's writing the final chapter of "There and Back Again" made it a little easier to come to the final conclusion that we all hate to see. I and many others I'm sure wish it would never end. I hope that Peter Jackson will seriously consider doing a movie of "The Hobbit". He certainly has the knack for putting Tolkien's words to film. This 2 DVD set quality is as good as it gets. It includes many extras along with the standard commentaries and documentary to many details of the making of it. Any fan of the other two movies will love it and anyone not familiar with these movies will enjoy them if they enjoy fantasy movies like "Ladyhawke" and "Dragonheart".

This is the most amazing concert I have ever seen! The all-star cast, featuring singers from around the world, put on an excellent performance. One man tops them all: COLM WILKINSON. The greatest voice the world has ever known.
