Mouse - Stealing Temptation (Vol. 1) - movie DVD cover picture
quick witted & fun ;-)


The first volume is very good, and fast-paced, and witty. It sets up the story & back information in a very entertaining way, without getting bogged down in an excess of details. His three assistants are very good looking and they add to the story. When they do show anything, it is usually there and gone, peek-a-boo style, which makes the whole set entertaining without being overwhelmed by it. Definitely not for children, but it is a fun & humorous series.

Die Hard - movie DVD cover picture
The best action movie ever!


Simply THE best action movie ever made, it rightly made Bruce Willis a star (although if you've seen Armageddon you'll realise he's past it nowadays). Not a single character is wasted, from the limo driver to the ill-fated FBI guys, the dialogue is sharp and kicking, the action tense and non-stop. Never bad-mouth this film, 'cos you know you'd be lying.

the best romantic comedy in my book


While I normally scoff at romantic-comedies, this one melted my heart with the humor and, generally, the sweetness of the film. James's cooking also adds to the charm of the movie. Yummy.

Sleeper - movie DVD cover picture
Woody Allen as we LOVED him ! ! !


This film comes from that era of when Woody Allen was kind of a young, subversive college radical version of HAROLD LLOYD... mixing Silent Comedy era slapstick with a new type of self/social (but oddly not political) observant psychoanalytic humor. Of this era, this and TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN had to have been the two most hillarious films... and both, fortunately have held up with time ! ! ! Featuring a much more structured plot than Bananas and Everything You Wanted To Know About Sex (which were moreso mere vehicles for Allen's gags and not really a showcase for his full bodied talents as a film maker) SLEEPER brings back a sigh of meloncholy when you remember when it was hip to be Jewish, neurotic and radicalized (...and live in Greenberg's Village !) - - Oddly enough with its futuristic tale seems fresher than ever in the post cuberpunk era (minus the hair styles !)... the only difference is that often when the film laughs at the present, we laugh at the past... and when it makes fun of the future, we laugh with it. - - Overall, the movie is hillarious. Dianne Keaton plays a vain and self centered ditzy intellectual poet/socialite who transforms from hostage to partner in crime... and the film features one of the best closing lines of all time (Woody Allen's famous comparison bewteen sex and death...) no, I won't give it away here... all I can say is go out and watch it again... and again and again !

The Doors Collection (Collector's Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
The Best Of The Doors.


"The Doors Collection" is the best audio/visual source about the band available. It is a stunning, exciting collection of the best of The Doors on film. It is the best Doors DVD out there and a must for big fans, rockers and anyone barely aquainted with the music who wants to know more. All the three segments are excellent documents of The Doors and their hypnotic music and the dynamic persona of Jim Morrison. It is clear from what you see here that he was poet, rock star, artist and genius. The first segment, "Dance On Fire" has some great material. There is the music video for "Break On Through" which is stylish and has aged well, in fact, I saw it air on MTV a few nights ago. There is also the neat video for "People Are Strange" and the legendary performance of "Light My Fire" at the Ed Sullivan Show. The video for "The Crystal Ship" is dreamy, romantic and hypnotic, with a real feel for the song which showcases some of Morrison's best poetry. The performance of "Love Me Two Times" for Danish television is especially entertaining and cool, with Jim all in leather reciting some poetry before breaking into one of their best blues tunes. The video for "Moonlight Drive" is interesting with Jim sporting some black shades and Robby Krieger doing some dreamy slide guitar. The "Roadhouse Blues" footage is especially fun with shots of some wild concert moments and Jim doing a Dionysian dance as images flash by. The second segment, "Live At The Hollywood Boal" is a nice document of The Doors in concert. They performance some of their best songs like "Backdoor Man," "Light My Fire" and "Whiskey Bar." The best performances are those of "When The Music's Over" which is epic and "The End" which is hypnotic. The final segment, "The Soft Parade" is an interesting look at The Doors as the end was coming closer. The beginning features a montage cut to "The Changeling" and shows Morrison and the band in a "superstar" tone. The interview they give is fascinating, especially when Jim predicts advancements in musical technology with incredible precision. The performance of "The Soft Parade" is better than the album version while footage of the band recording "Wild Child" is fun and interesting, not least because it's a great song. The bonus features in the DVD are also great. The commentary by the band members is funny and fascinating with lots of cool facts. Robby Krieger's new version of "The End" rocks while Ray Manzarek's student films are interesting to watch. The memorabilia section is especially fun and interesting, they even show ticket buts. John Densmore's one-man play is really silly and frankly, boring and uninteresting. It's annoying to hear him sing the songs because frankly, he can't sing. All in all, "The Doors Collection" is the best Doors visual collection. It's exhilarating, fascinating, visually alluring and filled with great music and poetry. It shows how there are certain things as timeless music and artists. Though The Doors music and lyrics are kept alive and well by newer bands (Creed, STP, The Cult), nothing beats the originals. The Doors were the first rock band to mix music with poetry and explored dark realms and set in motion things in rock n' roll that we are still living through. This DVD is a great document of how they did that.

Interview with the Vampire - movie DVD cover picture
A modern vampire classic!



This is a story told by vampire Louis ( Brad Pitt) who tells his life on how he was once human in the 1870's somewhere in New Orleans, he meets a saavy guy named Lestat ( Tom Cruise)makes him into a vampire who feasts on the blood of humans. But Louis is not like any other vampire cause he does love being one and doesn't want to kill one, but they do change a young girl named " Claudia" ( Kirsten Dunst) into a vamp so they can live immortal.

A work of cinematic poetry that shows a different side of vampires on how they can't always be ugly fanged faced demons from hell but really like human beings who have feelings. Antonio Bandreas does great as the theater vampire Armad with Christian Slater as the interviewer who listens to Louis's fascinating tale of his life as a bloodsucker. A well made adaptation of the Anne Rice novel, this is a thought provoking and amazing vampire movie that is truly one of the greatest of it's genre.

The DVD is quite good, excellent picture and sound quality, and nice extras like commentary by director Neil Jordan, a introduction, Behind the scenes, theatrical trailer, Cast and crew bios, and two outstanding featurettes. So if your love horror, drama and vampire flicks, then own this special edition DVD for your collection.

Never saw anything better than this. He is one of a kind. Went to his last performance, that was unforgetable. When he's on stage, you can't breathe, it's just so powerfull, that I cried. He gives all his energy to the audience.

A favorite: good writing, haunting music, and Paul.


This is a must for your collection. The story line is predictable, but the acting makes it worth it. The movie is complete with twists, laughs, excitement, and of course terrific racing scenes. Some of the closeups of Paul and Robert Wagner are memorable, and Richard Thomas makes you forget about John-Boy. I can watch this movie again and again. Unfortunately, the networks have cut it up and I have yet to see it on cable.
