Paris, Texas - movie DVD cover picture
ranks one of the greatest film ever


I just want to be honest with what I've saw, the picture is excellent, the soundtrack is great, the slide guitar fits so well in every scene, the actors did a superb job and what else can I say, I haven't seen a movie yet this good and has an excellent cinematography. The long conversation between Travis(Stanton) and Jane(Kinski)is difinitely the best and very memorable that until now, no matter where I go it lingers on my mind just that scene alone, its very touching that Ive tried so hard not to cry, but tears just roll down, kinski's role here is short but it seems to me that her presence seems to be in the whole movie. Its difinitely the best road movie ever, that I was so surprise that it wasn't even nominated for an Oscar but thank God it won the grand prize in the Cannes Film Festival coz it deserves more than that.

Classically Good


This movie is wonderful. I never thought that a comedy from the 1930's would still be funny decades later. Clark Gable is a great actor and really makes the movie what it is. I would recommend this movie to all!

Iron Eagle - movie DVD cover picture
THE MOST AWESOME MOVIE EVER MADE


This movie inspired me to pursue my life long dream of becoming president of the national Iron Eagle Fan Club. Twisted Sister did, in fact, play a very cool tune in the movie. Here is a little snippet. "We're not gone uh take it. Oh we ain't gone uh take it. We're not gone uh take it anymoooooooooooore." The dialogue is Shakespearean worthy and the Grandmaster would have a hard time creating this involving interaction between characters. If you want to see a very moving film that inspires everyone on the planet to become fighter pilots that are 17, rescue their dad from some OPEC country, then get down to that video store and be ready for a real treat.

The Taming of the Shrew (Broadway Theatre Archive) - movie DVD cover picture
A high energy commedia dell'arte production of "Shrew"


I always liked the Zeferrelli film version of "The Taming of Shrew" with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton for reasons largely having little to do with the text of Shakespeare's play. That film is very much a visual treat, as you would expect from Zeferrelli, but I find I have a much better appreciation for the text from this ACT version which strips everything down to the dialogue and sends the actors out to do battle.
The impetus for this production is that the play is performed in the style of "commedia dell'arte," an Italian theatrical form that flourished throughout Europe from the 16th to 17th centuries (well, "The Taming of the Shrew" is set in Italy and the play was written during the 16th century, so it makes sense). This approach emphasizes ensemble acting and celebrates rich verbal humor, without disdaining physical comedy. However, do not expect to be seeing masks, because while that was key to "commedia dell'arte" where the mask was more important than the player because of the standardized characters (e.g., capitano, harlequin, pantaloon, etc.), this is not that traditional a performance. Of course, this does emphasize how much "Shrew" is like a traditional "commedia dell'arte"; you certainly have Zanni, the madcap servants, as well as the young couple whose love is thwarted by their parents with Bianca and Lucentio.
Watching this play certainly emphasizes the production over the individual performances. However, you will be allowed to indulge a momentary pause when you notice that it is Marc Singer ("The Beastmaster") who is play Petruchio. Harry Hamlin is recognizable in a bit part, but the rest of the cast has remained unknown, which, again, emphasizes the script more than the actors. Even Fredi Olster, who plays Katherina, has disappeared except for choice roles like the Woman in Hallway in "Burglar" and Judge Winters on "Walker, Texas Ranger."
The bottom line is that if I was interested in turning young students onto Shakespeare, in terms of the love of language and the joy in word play, then this ACT production of "The Taming of the Shrew" from the Broadway Theater Archive would be the one I would show them. Certainly the broad style of the comedy will drive home the various nuances of the Bard's language (although I agree with those critics who say Shakespeare is responsible for the main Petruchio-Katherina plot line and not the Bianca-Lucentio sub-plot). Besides, they will probably be excited to see the Beastmaster in action again.

INCREDIBLE!!!


Words cannot describe the greatness of this sequal. It was not dumbed down to an unintelligent audience - but instead raises the bar in how engaging and entertaining a movie can be. And, if you do not have the brains to follow the plot, or amazing philisophical speeches, than be awed by the amazing effects. Great job Wachowski's, this is one heck of a movie!!!

This Movie Rules


Children of The Corn is probably one of my favorite films based on Stephen King books. It has everything we'd expect from a great novel turned into a better film and it didn't need visual effects. I recommend this to any fan of Stephen King.

A classic everyone should experiance...


This is going to be short, but this movie has brought joy to so many people thatks to Chris Farley. His humor changes people's lives. He makes people laugh and be happy. This movie is one of the all time greats. No one will ever be able to re-create a movie with even close to Tommy Boy's re-play value. Buy it.
