They Were Expendable - movie DVD cover picture
Home is the sailor, home from the sea


John Ford's THEY WERE EXPENDABLE tells the story of the fledgling PT (patrol torpedo) boat branch of the US Navy and its valiant, and futile, defense of Manila immediately following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Few directors possess the passionate affection Ford has for his subjects. Ford idolizes and idealizes his soldiers and sailors. As a consequence, his movies usually aren't very plot driven. Rather, they are tone poems, love letters to the warriors he so deeply admires. Not that TWE doesn't hit a major note or two - the PT boat role as a fighting arm is established, battles are fought and boats are sunk. Yet Ford never seems all that interested in serving plot points. He wants to paint Heroes. In any other director this romantic treatment would seem trite and contrived, but Ford practically built the clich?, so I suppose if anyone has the right to use it, it's Ford.
Ford's heroes die talking. Rare is the mortally wound Ford warrior who is not borne from the noisy cauldron of battle to a quiet corner and allowed a passing speech. I don't mean to mock this, but I've never experienced the well of grief such scenes are meant to evoke. It happens a brief time or two in TWE, but the moments are over quickly enough.
If Ford's choice and treatment of material is romantic and sentimental, it's fortunate that his actors usually aren't. Robert Montgomery and John Wayne star and both give restrained performances as PT boat commanders. Ford surrounds them with his usual cast of highly competent character actors - Ward Bond, Jack Holt, et al - and seamlessly integrates shots of real combat in battle scenes. There's a scene where two PT boats attack a Japanese cruiser that is one of the best action sequences I've ever seen.
THEY WERE EXPENDABLE is a great war movie.

The Incredibles (UMD Mini For PSP) - movie DVD cover picture
The Incredible Four!


Another great film by Disney/Pixar! To be honest, I wasn't particularly impressed by the previews. Seemed to me to be an attempt by Disney/Pixar to cash in on all the superhero hype surrounding recent films such as Spider-Man, Hulk, Daredevil, etc. But this movie surprised me. It was highly entertaining!

The beginning of the movie has a short animated film typical of Pixar films. This one is about a lamb who gets sheared every year but manages to keep his chin up with the advice of a Jack-A-Roo! Fun. There is also the new Star Wars Episode III trailer at the beginning. 'Rise Lord Vader'. Cool. Only thing missing was the Elektra preview which had been rumoured to be there.

The Incredibles is strikingly similar to Marvel's Fantastic Four. Strength, elasticity, invisibility, with only the human torch missing, but replaced with a super speedy Dash. The animation is great! The characters are great! The story is great! I particularly liked the costume designer Edna Mode with her style and lecturing about why capes are not good. The ending is funny with Dash finally allowed by his parents to participate in school sports and he gets caught up in the excitement by his cheering family that he forgets he needs to hold back and then slows down to purposely finish in 2nd place!

So many great moments in this film and likeable characters, you'll be disappointed that the movie has to end! Don't miss this one!

awesome masterpiece


I cant believe that no one I have talked to, even the "film buffs", have seen this movie. It is a movie that makes you think deep and hard and figure out the mystery with them, in the likes of Solaris or something liek that. It has that whole mysterious vibe to it and doesnt even have credits at the beginning. While it is obvious that there was a very limited budget given the obviously computerized special effects and the rather interesting deaths, and the brilliant math that the girl does in the movie makes it definately one of the smartest movies i have seen. I cant stop thinking about this movie after i have seen it..

E's Opinion


I THOUGHT BOOGEYMEN WAS A REALLY GOOD GENRE FOR THE ULTIMATE HORROR FANATICS. I LIKED THE SCENES, AND MOST OF THOSE SCENES WERE FROM MOVIES I REALLY SEEN AND ENJOYED IN THE PAST. EVENTHOUGH I'AM NOT A DIE HARD HORROR FAN I THINK BOOGEYMEN IS A GREAT COMPILATION FOR THOSE NEUTRAL WATCHERS. I REALLY THINK BOOGEY WILL BE USED FOR MANY HOLLOWEEN PARTY'S, OR FOR THOSE FRIENDLY GET-TOGETHERS. SOME SCENES IN THIS COMPILATION I'VE NEVER SCENE BEFORE AND WERE PROBABLY THE FEATURES I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT IT. OVERALL, I LIKED IT AND WOULDN'T MIND WATCHING IT AGAIN.

SCAPERS--FARSCAPE IS BACK!!!!


No, I'm not kidding. Check out www.watchfarscape.com if you don't believe me! :)
About the DVD: I love it. I love it all! Season 4 is pretty dark (and dark is always good!) and it's especially better now that there will finally be a continuation to the unresolved cliffhanger in "Bad Timing," (not on this DVD, but probably soon to be released!) Anyone who hasn't watched the show, I *highly* recommend it, but suggest you start with an earlier season. Enjoy, and Scape on! :)

best family feel good movie in years


FINALLY< A family movie with no gooey kissing scenes that kids do not need to see . No offensive fight scenes, and best of all it taught some great lessons about being true to yourself, not caving in to peer pressure and not caring what others think. You should be secure in yourself.

Too many people think blood and sex are ok for chilren to see. The supposed kids movies show either mom in a love interest having sex or the teen is in a sexual situation.

This was truely CLEAN< FUN and MORALLY REFRESHING>

Enjoy!!!!

The Simpsons - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
A must-have for any fan of the show


Although I'm a pretty big fan of "The Simpsons," I hesitated before buying this DVD set. I don't have any first-hand memories of these episodes (I was born in 1983, which would make me 6 at the time these were released), and my impression of this season from reruns was not favorable. There's no such thing as a bad "Simpsons", of course, but this season always struck me as mediocre. The animation was poor and the characters were not well-defined, and the show didn't have its manic satirical bent yet.
However ... this set made a believer out of me. The episodes are presented in crystal-clear picture quality, and the sound is great. The episodes themselves, while still not the best ones in the show's history, are all quite entertaining, while several ("Life in the Fast Lane," "Moaning Lisa," "Krusty Gets Busted") are great. The audio commentary by Matt Groening and other writers and directors is fabulous, and the extra features are a nice bonus. The entire box set couldn't have been put together better.
Although this is still part of the awkward developing stage of "The Simpsons," this box set couldn't have been a more satisfying purchase. I can't wait for "The Complete Second Season"!
