Why is there still NO dvd version

Given that this is such a good production I wonder why there is still no DVD version. Comparible productions like Merlin and cleopatra or available on DVD already.
Shame on that studio !

Absolutely Fabulous - Complete Series 4 - movie DVD cover picture

The fourth season of AbFab returns after a long gap in real time and time in the show. The return is just as fabulous as the orginal seasons, and definitely beats the "last shout". It does take a little while to get back into the fabulousness of it all, but the DVD itself certainly helps. With great menus, including flashing lights, pictures, and music. The episodes are incredibly good, and include many celebs from across the pond. They definitely have the rewatchability of the orginals seasons, but with some slight changes to the characters. Definitely worth the money for any fan!!!!

Great video for first time pre-schoolers

This is a great video- the main character, Buddy Bear, is delightful. It takes place in a real pre-school with real kids--- not actors. Our kids as well as friends and relatives of preschool age were glued to this video. They loved all of the songs as well. It helped them feel more comfortable about facing all of the new things related to their experiences at pre-school. It's fun and very entertaining. I hope they decide to do more and create a whole series of My First Day!

Petulia Meets the Battle of Algiers

"Cuba" represents the best of the verite style of Richard Lester. If you're looking for traditional narrative or a big star vehicle for Sean Connery, you'll be disappointed. "Cuba" presents a loosely connected series of romantic and socio-political impressions that accurately portray the tragi-comic mixture of romance and corruption that led to the Cuban revolution and the ascendancy of Fidel Castro. Connery and Adams provide romantic elements, while Martin Balsam, Walter Gotell, and Jack Weston portray the utter corruption of pre-Castro Cuba. Hector Elizondo represents the last vestiges of moral sanity as documentray footage portrays an irreversibly decaying situation. His character's senseless death signals the final unravelling of a diseased society and the onset of revolution. Yet, the real star of this underappreciated film is Lester's camera and the director's keen idealism that shows through this carefully crafted cinema experience. "Cuba" ought to be one of Fidel's favorite films because Lester gets the revolution right.

Change of Mind

Even though the cast main characters are teenagers, you don't have to be a teen to really enjoy the show. I really like the friendships the kids form and how the kids work together in everything they do, good or bad. The show also has a small town feel, which adds to the appeal. I enjoy every character, but also wish some of the secondary characters had more air time, like Alex and Kyle. The relationship between Max and Liz is very intense and you always want the best for them. Michael and Maria had a relationship that always kept you guessing. The humor was always added at just the right spot. I think the humor was thanks to Jonathan Frakes directing. He probably added it. He always seems to have the humor lines in Star Trek. In the Season 1 DVD, there is commentary on one of the shows from Shiri Appleby (Liz) & Majandra Delfino (Maria). They tell how Jonathan Frakes tells them how to make certain facial expressions. He really has a sense of humor, and the girls are both cute and giggly in the commentary. Everyone will enjoy the DVD's from Season 1 and the extras included. Seasons 2 DVD's will be equally as enjoyable.

Of Course You're Going To Watch/Buy This - But Why?

Yes, yes, this is Audrey Tautou, cute, perfectly green, French as it gets, alien......that's the word I our species really capable of being this wonderful? innocent? perceptive? kind?.....pick one, they're all so alien to the films that have been made up to this point....this is a hurricane of fresh air so badly needed it's not possible to explain until you've seen the film.
Personally, the wicked humor, the philosophical philandering, the innocent good intentions, the soaring human spirit of the whole film gave me a new window on what film can do. This is one that will be seen throughout the century and, if we're lucky, will inspire a new generation of film makers....I can hardly wait.

Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn - movie DVD cover picture
Enjoy this DVD over and over.

Audrey Hepburn is charming, Michael York narrates, and the filming is stunning. Features gardens of the world. Favorite sections are the roses and public gardens. After watching several times, didn't realize that the DVD flips over to play the opposite side. You can also play the classical music that is used in the filming. Highly recommend this DVD.

Predator (Full-Screen Edition) - movie DVD cover picture
"The jungle is alive..."

Predator, the film which helped launch the career of director John McTiernan (who would later helm the first Die Hard movie), and the film which introduced us to one of the most terrifying and impressive movie monsters ever in the Predator. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Carl Weathers star as US commandos on a rescue mission in South America, but when they find a group of skinned corpses hanging upside down, plans change. Eventually, one by one each soldier is picked off by an unseen force, until only Arnold is left, and he comes face to face with the sleek alien hunter called the predator which takes his prey's skulls as his trophy. The design of the Predator itself is in a word, awesome. FX and makeup legend Stan Winston (responsible for Pumpkinhead and the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park for starters) outdid himself with the design of the beast, as Arnold puts it in the final fight, "One ugly mother......". While the movie is great, some more special features would have been nice. There is a rumor of a battle filmed between the Predator and Billy which would have been nice to see. All in all though, if you've never had a chance to see the original Predator, now has never been a better time, its one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time. On a side note, future governor and former WWF wrestler Jessie "The Body" Ventura played one of the commandos, and Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally supposed to be the man in the Predator outfit, but he bowed out at the last minute to film Bloodsport.
