Lynch's Genius - Fans' Frustration


I am also a frustrated fan. I don't even have the luxury of having a set of crappy VHS tapes. I have not yet seen the television series from beginning to end. I have the original pilot, the first season, and firewalk on DVD, and have been patiently waiting for the release of season 2. I am pissed. I don't know if this means anything, but I know that TP is a hard swallow for some people (who I think are just braindead anyway) but being introduced to TP the way I was may have been what caught my attention. I first saw firewalk before any other episodes, and the film made utter and complete sense to me. The interviews with the cast made it seem that the storyline when 'awry' for most of them. But watching the beginning after seeing the end... (or is that seeing the end after watching the beginning?) made me realise that the 'end' couldn't have occurred any differently. That show was well thought out, and the symbolism is gut level, as well as spiritual - and not just 'supernatural' as I've heard it described. I believe the whole story to be about the spiritual turmoil that results from abuse at the hands of those we trust the most, and the despair that results. Genius. Lynch is a genius.

The Wiggles - Wiggly Safari - movie DVD cover picture
Catchy and Captivating!


At first, I wasn't sure how my 21-month-old daughter would like this DVD, as it's quite a bit different from the Wiggles' television show. However, she loves it! It holds her attention even better than the TV show, and she sits as if in a trance when it's on. This video is set outdoors, at the Australian Zoo, and features the Wiggles and the Steve Irwin family interacting with various animals. The songs are probably the best of any of their videos-I find myself humming them alot! Also featured are the four dancers (two men and two women) that appear in most of the Wiggles Dvds-they're such a pleasure to watch, and genuinely seem to be having fun.
We originally bought this on DVD, but Chloe loves it so much that we also bought it on VHS for her to watch at Grandma's house. It's a great way for Grandma to keep her busy and entertained for a bit while taking care of the other kids! And the songs are such a hit that we've also been obliged to purchase the CD, for in the car, and it's played nonstop from Boise to Disneyland to Washington, several times over!
Overall, I highly recommend this DVD! It's enjoyable for my daughter, and I enjoy it too!

folded-plot-of-a-masterpiece


It is so bewildering to read so many negative reviews of this breathless, fabulous film. One could easily dismiss such disappointment by ascribing such notices to an unrepresentative, hapless group of viewers of shockingly low intelligence; but it is probably more attributable to wholesale indolence. Read this well then: It will require at least ten viewings of this film to truely appreciate --- to appreciate not only the more obvious, folded-back-on-itself plot liberties; not only the veracious morality play within ("Know thyself?" / "Who can know [the heart]?"); but also the Dantean comedy. Yes, I said comedy! The hilarity is side-splittingly palpable, not only within the frames you are looking at, but also "between" the frames as well. But all this will be lost to you if you're lazy, or if you cannot suspend once and for all any precondition to think merely with skin or glands when watching a movie. What a true testimony to the shameless narcotic of Hollywood!

Yoga and Pilates Vol 2 - movie DVD cover picture
Remember, this is based on Yoga ! Welcome style and pace


Louise Solomon's DVD v2 is well worth your time, even at twice the price! I found this to be an excellent merging of Yoga principles with some Pilates core strength added. The video clearly notes that for those who are more experienced or wish a more intense workout, go straight to the 4th part of the DVD.

There is a book by Louise Solomon with a quick summary of all the exercise poses in the appendix. This book "Yogalates: the Breakthrough Workout..." is available elsewhere (not on Amazon.com for some reason).

I find the fuss over the "Yogalates" and "Yogilates" terms to be unfortunate. Both the American who claims a TM on the latter name and this Australian have put together fine Yoga + Pilates work. Hope they collaborate and extend the message of combining Yoga + Pilates more broadly rather than keeping each other out of their respective country markets (Solomon's is in UK and Australia, American's is in US).

A prior review noted how slowww the sequences are, well that is the nature of Yoga, slow and steady with concentration rather than bouncing quick pace. Yoga practitioners consider that a positive feature, as I expect would Pilates practitioners. Sorry that doesn't meet the expectations of many looking for quick and intense workouts.

EMMA THOMPSON AT HER GREATEST


Emma Thompson has established herself as one of the great actresses of this or any generation thanks to her superlative work in Howards End, Remains of the Day, Sense and Sensibility, In the Name of the Father, to name my personal favorites. I wasn't prepared for the powerhouse work on WIT. But WOW--that's the kind of acting that only a handful of actresses have accomplished. It's heartfelt, without being pitiful. It's funny, without being cynical. It's tragic, without being sentimental or melodramatic. In a word: PERFECTION. WIT is the story of an intellecual snob who is dying of cancer and comes to the realization that all her intellect and snobbery means nothing, ultimately. The film takes place in a hospital where Thompson's character, a university professor who specializes in the poems of John Donne, is undergoing an experimental type of chemotherapy that's literally eating her inside out. It's not an easy movie to watch, but in the end you feel transformed emotionally. The scene in which her own university professor reads her a children's book is heartwrenching. I loved this film. It gave me a new perspective on cancer, the suffering patients go through, some of the callousness that sometimes occurs in a hospital setting, and, most significantly to me personally, broadened my understanding of and gave me a new respect for the human spirit, that spirit which transcends pain and fear of the unknown. Thank you Ms. Thompson for this beautiful work of art.

Deliverance - movie DVD cover picture
A river of emotions...


Even people who haven't seen "Deliverance" are at least familiar with several aspects of the film...banjos, backwoods, hillbillies and wild river rapids are usually the first images people conjure up. But there is so much more to this exquisite thriller.
The story and premise are simple and well-known. Four "city boys" head to deep Appalachia to do battle with a river that will soon be dammed over. The untamed wilderness these average Atlanta businessmen plunge themselves into is everything they hoped for...and everything they feared. The four men, played with intense reality and emotion by Burt Reynolds, Ned Beatty, John Voight and Ronnie Cox, portray dramatically different characters. The vital question, to be answered by these men over the course of the story, is who has the combination of inner and outer strength to survive their little 3-day excursion?
The trip that unfolds is unforgettable. Man is reduced to his primal level, with survival becoming his only focus. Every side of human emotion and expression is captured in this 48-hour journey, which wouldn't have been possible without the extraordinary physical and mental effort on the part of the actors, director and film crew.
In this highly visual film, emotions and physical acting speak louder than any words. A taut, dramatic thriller, "Deliverance" merits several viewings. Watch it again and again (as I did) and you'll recognize the beauty and brilliance in a film where morning bird song blends seamlessly with man's mortal cry.
Life and death fight for a balance in this John Boorman masterpiece.

Hitchcock at his best


Alfred Hitchcock has made a load of fantastic films. The Birds, Psycho, Frenzy, and more. But this one took you in under your wing, and then kicked you out in the cold. I give it 5 stars because of it's great content and just because... I love ANY Hitchcock film!

GHOST DOG - Tight Movie!!!


Ghost Dog surprised the hell outta me! If you like gangsta movies, karate movies, hip-hop movies, or just a good movie, this is it! Forest Whitaker does a great job playing the lead role, and the recognizable Rza has some phat beats that compliment this movie perfectly. It's a serious movie, with some funny parts, like old italian gangtas talkin' bout rap music. Give it a chance cuz i did, and I don't like many movies! Peace...
One love, Sacrificez
