Sherman's March - movie DVD cover picture
quiet clarity


Ignore those who don't get Ross's schtick. It's transfixing. Ross's stream of conscious commentary on his life as it unfolds in front of his camera lens has a rare clarity and simple unaffected profoundness.

Ghost in the Shell - movie DVD cover picture
A true masterpiece


I loved this film, both the animation and the plot was spectacular. This is totally not like most anime because it was VERY detailed having to do with the story. I personally liked this movie a lot more than Princess Mononoke. Since Ghost in the Shell was so hard to follow. I garentee you, when you see this film, you'll think that you figured out everything that is until they show that dog numerous times which makes it confusing why that dog was there in the first place. In addition to the enemy since he's just a "vioce." When I saw this film, I was already a big fan of Mamoru Oshi's work. Now although, the original story was by Masamune Shirow but he had nothing to do with the project. Oshi even asked Shirow If he could change the story in his vision. And Shirow said "Do what you like." And he did and he created a true masterpiece.

Falling Down - movie DVD cover picture
Falling Down makes a powerful statement.


Most critics (who as we know, are mostly bitter, failed filmakers) nitpick so much at this film that they miss the powerful statement it makes.
This film takes all of our frustrations at modern life and pushes them to a conclusion that we have seen in real life.
D-Fens snaps, plain and simple. As so often happens with people pushed too far. More acts of violence in this country are commited by average people rahter than sinister career criminals.
How many times have we heard the news reports; Man goes insane, kills his family and then himself. Then they interview neighbors who say; "He was such a quiet man, helped me bring in my groceries every week"
D-Fens is every one of us. Haven't you ever wished that you had a gun in hand so you could blow the fool head off the moron who just cut you off? The pressure in the big cities is becoming increasingly difficult to deal with.
Los Angeles along has over 12 million people in it. How long can we be treated like animals, and be expected to act like civilized people?
I do not see this movie as having any heroes in it. Only victims. This movie is certainly entertaining, and provactive. But more than anything else, it is a warning. A warning that if we do not change out basic attitudes, civilization will all go the way of poor D-Fens.
People laugh when I say that I believe civilization will collapse, they think no such thing can happen. But where are the great empires of the past? Where is Rome? Where are the Pharohs? Even the USSR came apart. Is it really so hard to believe that the same can happen here?
We need to start caring a little more than we do, we need to start being a little nicer, and a lot less selfish. We have to lose this sense of entitlement we have. We need to take pride in ourselves and in our country once again, if we do not all want to turn in to D-Fens.

Release in Europe on DVD in1999.


Although not yet available in USA, this DVD was released in Europe in 1999. The transfer quality is really quite good and does nothing to detract from the original. Like all Disney 'classic' DVDs to date though, it is devoid of 'extras'.

I wish I would have gotten this sooner!


This is an excellent present for new parents. I got the video when my son was two months old, but I wish I would have had it before he was born. The techniques that Dr. Karp teaches you really work. His explanation of why babies are so fussy during the first three months of life helped me to put things in perspective and to understand that this stage wouldn't last forever.

DRILLER KILLER THRILLS


Alright,so maybe,just maybe this isn't the greatest movie ever made but it is still a great movie. Like other directors first movies it has the raw strength of vision and commitment compares well with Scorceses-'Mean Streets'.It's also a brilliant documentation of mental disintergration comparable with Scorceses 'Taxi Driver' It's also somewhat gory and frightening in it's intensity like 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. If you like disturbing films,go ahead and watch Abel Ferarra's first feature and get inside his head.

Audition - movie DVD cover picture
The horror...is deserved.


Some reviewers have claimed that this movie has a "problem" because the protagonist does not deserve the suffering he receives. Horsefeathers (as my grandpa would say)! The guy uses a phony casting couch for a movie that doesn't exist to find a girl, a ridiculous deceptive move. Psycho-girl Asami, the protagonist's love interest, sees through the deception in a heartbeat; how is she to know that the guy has actually fallen in love? She can't know, and there's the tragedy. The protagonist has love all around him - his housekeeper and his secretary are obviously interested and potentially appropriate love interests...Yet the man cannot see. He instead opts for this Hollywood-style "Sure-we'll-meet-by-deception-but-love-w ill-conquer-all" audition. Yeah, this has all the hallmarks of a Sleepless in Seattle style set-up; that it ends up as a grotesque nightmare for an imperfect man holds more metaphorical water than a dozen Rob Reiner movies. On top of that, this movie WILL scare the ... out of you...One of the top 10 horror movies of all time, and maybe the smartest one ever.
