timing error set straight


Well, to set the record straight regading the actual length of the European version, it is actually only 2 (two) minutes longer than the domestic release; however, there is almost 30 minutes of alternate scenes and alternate dialog which makes all the difference in the world and makes the European version infinitely better then the American cut. I have a bootleg recording of this version, which is the basis of my information. I happen to love both scores, but then again, I am a big Tangerine Dream fan. I can't wait to finally get a clean DVD copy of this awesome movie and throw my "boot" away.

C. Thomas Howell....punished for his sins.


It's a great flick, if only because Rutger Hauer, King of the B-movies, gets to do to C. Thomas Howell what we have all dreamed of.....torture him mercilessly, for no adequately explained reason.
I guess Rutger saw "Soul Man."
Seriously, it's a well-done, if somewhat formulaic, version of the ol' deadly hitchhiker story. I endorse it wholeheartedly. Howell being the victim is just a bonus.

Valentine - movie DVD cover picture
The best moddern day horror film of them all!


Let me start out by saying that this movie will make the easily scared piss their pants! The origionality of this film is so hard to come by these days. When a group of attractive young girls humiliate a nerd at the valentines day dance, he vows revenge on all of them. 13 years later they recieve thretening valentines and gifts. The gift that Jessica Cauffiel's character Lily gets will make the squeamish throw up! Anyway, One by one they are hunted down by a crazed killer wearing a cupid mask. Very creative death scenes including arrows, power drills, shards of glass, axes and more. Great soundtrack too! I rate it an A+! Stars Denise Richards, Marly Shelton, Jessica Cauffiel, Jessica Capshaw, Kathrine Heigel, Hedy Burress and David Boreanza.

Sick movie!


Yes, I will be the first to admit off the bat that this movie is the typical 'teenager overcomes all odds' type of movie but I have to say that I was actually impressed by the script and especially the acting. Kate Bosworth is a refreshing new face to Hollywood and filled the lead role perfectly. Michelle Rodreguiz is always amazing in any role that she is faced with and plays (as usual) an exceptionally good bad-... Something that I also give thumbs-up to is the movie's chance at putting exceptionally new talent out there in the public eye. Sanoe Lake is perfect for her role and all of the surfer locals throughout the movie are absolutly picture perfect and give the whole set of the movie a very personal feel for Hawaii and the culture. The film is surprisingly good and the camerawork is some of the best I've seen in a long time; to actually see the mechanics of the waves and to gain a new respect for their power is amazing. This is a must-see for any teenage girl or boy looking to follow a dream that anyone ever told you was unrealistic and for any adult just looking to have a good time.

Black Hawk Down - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent adaptation of the book.


Best movie of the Year. Period. Forget what other feeble minded people say about this movie. It is excellent and will really hit home if you have ever served your country in the Military. Other reviewers say it is confusing. DUH. War is confusing and as many of us who have been there know it is also very acelerated and fast. I bought the book only a few days after it came out and it kept my attention through every last page.
Being a new soilder when the events in Somalia where first taking place, I never new that so much happened until I read the book and numerous other accounts of the situation. War is scary,fast,slow,mean,lovely,brutal,glori ous,disgusting, and on and on and on.....
This movie shows that not everyone is a hero. Like the character says in the movie, "just do your duty" politics and everything else be damned. Those who can't understand that are usually the ones who never served their own country. Get this movie and try to put yourself in that situation. Think about it and know that there are people like this (young sons and daughters) that do that stuff everyday just for you and this great country.
I give this movie 5 stars (saw it twice in the theater and now own the DVD). Watch it a few times and you will always see more and understand things better.

Run Lola Run - movie DVD cover picture
Surprising brilliance!


I first saw this film when I rented it with a "buy one get one rental free" coupon, so I obviously didn't expect much from it. I saw the fancy cover art and thought it would be a short, inane film that wouldn't hold my interest. I was so incredibly wrong, and after I finished the film, I couldn't wait to go out and buy it. "Run Lola Run" is sheer brilliance from start to finish, never letting your attention drift from the action on the screen. From the pounding techno soundtrack to the incredible camera angles and effects, the film is a wild ride to say the least.
The plot involves the loss of 100,000 marks by a scatterbrained wanna-be crook named Manni who also happens to be the boyfriend of Lola. If Manni does not deliver the 100,000 marks to his gangster boss, Ronnie, in 20 minutes, Manni will be squashed like a bug. From here, the action begins. Lola frantically tries to replace the money for Manni, and she encounters many obstacles along the way. The most mind-blowing part of the movie is the alternate endings that show the various ways Lola must try to come up with the money.
I was wondering how the filmmakers would stretch this film out to feature length, considering the plot begins and ends in 20 minutes, but they have done a masterful job of it. Simply put, "Run Lola Run" is not to be missed, it is one of the best foreign films you will ever see!
