Bottom - Not Another Half-Arsed DVD Set - movie DVD cover picture
very very funny.........


This has to be british comedy at it's finest, I am a Brit living in america, it is vulgar, silly and extremely funny and a breath of fresh air after being tortured with american comedy which i must say i find extemely tiresome and boring for the most part, it's nice to see it released on dvd over here, and untill the american board of censorship get their act together and allow some good stuff on television, i will be buying lots more Brit stuff on dvd. (ok that was my rant about american tv) The bottom dvd is very much worth the money especially for Brits living in the states and having to put up with american television....ooops!!! there i go again, can you tell i HATE censorship...ha ha. Seriously...if you like slapstick comedy, and don't mind vulgarity, you will find this dvd a blast.

Classical Pilates Technique - The Complete Mat Workout Series (Modified Basic / Basic / Intermediate / Advanced / Super Advanced) - movie DVD cover picture
Men Should Do Pilates


This Pilates DVD is straight forward, no-nonsense, and has a dude demonstrating Pilates workouts with serious strength and coordination. This is good because I lift weights, run, and I'm into sports. It's the only DVD cover that showed a guy doing Pilates. More men should try Pilates. It's challenging and takes a lot of stamina.

Speechless


This is the action packed video with sexy woman, bad [apple] main actor, some violence and great fight scene. About the drug cartel on Mexican border. Saw lots of action with a good storyline. The girls are hot. The scenes in Mexico made me laugh my guts out. Hope there is a sequel.

La Femme Nikita - The Complete First Season - movie DVD cover picture
Nothing can compare...


to Nikita, Michael, Walter, Operations, Madeline, Berkoff, and everyone else. This series was a true gem in a sea of television's usual...shows. Imaginative, inspiring, romantic, and trendy ~ one episode is all it takes to get hooked in to the world of Section One. The character development was splendid, the story lines brilliant, and the overall feel dark and sleek and sexy. It has it all. Peta Wilson is the stunningly beautiful Nikita - with long legs and a collection of sunglasses and a look that every woman wishes for. Roy Dupuis stars as Michael, the seeming cold but truly sensitive secret agent whose look is enough to melt any woman's heart.
No review can truly express the brilliance which was La Femme Nikita. However, for those fans dedicated to the series, our VHS tapes have long since worn out and we live for the day this is released on DVD. And perhaps, then, a whole new generation of fans will discover the magic of LFN.

The Truth About Jane - movie DVD cover picture
Outstanding Story of Realization and Tolerance!!


I saw this movie several years ago on Lifetime Television. This was an outstanding movie that has stuck with me, and had an impact on my for several years. Ellen Muth, Stockard Channing, James Naughton and RuPaul star in the drama "The Truth About Jane."
Fifteen-year-old Jane lives the quintessential suburban life with her parents and younger brother. Although popular, Jane has always felt somewhat different than her peers. However, after meeting Taylor, a transfer student at school, Jane's life changes irrevocably. Jane and Taylor become close friends very quickly, and Jane feels a connection to Taylor that she's never felt with her other friends. One night, Taylor kisses Jane, and it becomes clear to Jane that she's found what has been lacking in her life. As her relationship with Taylor deepens, Jane realizes that she has to face her family and come to terms with her true self, which changes her life forever.
The results of which will surprise and amaze you. This is one classy, well put together story of love and tolerance.

In Cold Blood - movie DVD cover picture
A Classic of the Crime Genre


Based on Truman Capote's book, "In Cold Blood" is a rare example of a film which does justice to its original source. Based on an actual mass murder which occured in Kansas in late 50's, this stark black-and-white film directed by Richard Brooks (who also wrote the screenplay) is not for the squeamish. The two murderers, Dick Hickock and Perry Smith, are excellently portrayed by Scott Wilson and Robert Blake. Two down-and-out losers, they plan what they believe will be a "major score" in the robbery of a supposedly wealthy Kansas farmer. But their partnership, and the psychopathic personality of Perry Smith, creates a third entity which results in the slaughter of the entire Klutter family. The last 30 minutes of this film are truly horrific, in flashback mode, and the brilliance of Richard Brooks' direction is that the murders are merely inferred by quick camera cuts that never show the killings on screen. The killers' executions at the end of the film are almost anti-climactic. See the film, then go read Capote's book; both are excellent accounts of this sad and savage story. This is a film that cries out to be released on DVD, with possible extra features being a documentary or two on the real-life killers and their actual capture. A much under-appreciated classic of film noir.

Costner's "perfect" as a baseball player


I agree with everything in Chad Spivak's review - I think this is a great movie to watch MORE than once, but I didn't see anything mentioned about the great music that goes along with the story. I especially liked "Paint It, Black" and Garth Brook's "It Don't Matter to Me".
I have this in video, now I'll be getting it in DVD too!

Productgroup: DVD
Lionheart - movie DVD cover picture
One of Van Damme's VERY BEST-The Legionnaire Avenger


Do not be misguided by the fact that this movie was shot back in 1989, and thus be led to assume that this is another one of the low budget, b-movies that Van Damme used to make in the 1980's.
AWOL/Lionheart, is arguably his best film ever.
The story begins in what is a typical modern Legion Etrangere camp somewhere in North Africa. Van Damme plays a ranker soldier, Leon, who is serving in one of the Legion's crack North African detachments. Here, we get the very rare glimpse of what is like to be a modern Legionnaire: Both the scenery and camp are very realistic, rigid discipline prevalent, with emphasis being put on the soldiers' perfect fitness through physical training and manual labour.
Suddenly, Leon receives a letter from his only brother's wife who lives in the USA, informing him that his brother was beaten to death by some villains, and that she needs someone both to avenge his death and take care of her and her little daughter.
Rigid almost inhuman discipline in the Legion is once again underlined, when Private Leon asks to see his Commanding Officer, an impressive blond Frenchman, every inch a soldier. After hearing the reasons why Pvt. Leon asks for a leave, his CO coolly denies on the grounds that he firstly needs him "down here", and secondly that Pvt. Leon's contract with the Legion excludes furloughs.
From here onwards, the movie ceases to be static, and becomes a fast paced action adventure, as we follow Van Damme's risky escape from the camp to some North African muslim seaport, where he seeks to obtain passage on one of the Merchant Ships there, to the USA. In the meantime, his French CO has reported him as AWOL, and he has ordered two of his best NCO's to locate and return the deserter back to his unit.
Van Damme evades his pursuers, and signs on a 1950's Steam Turbine General Freighter as a Wiper, in order to pay for his passage.
When he finally arrives in the USA, we see him wandering the streets of New York, dressed in Navy fatigues looking for a job. He finally makes his way under a bridge, where the odd black bookmaker is staging a no-holds barred street-fighting tournament of sorts. The bookmaker, seeing Van Damme's incredible physique, suggests that he should fight in the next match in return for a fee. Asking his name, Van Damme replies slowly in French, "LE-ON", whereupon, the bookmaker hears "Lion" and proclaims him the "Lion". Thus, a new street-fighter star is born.
Van Damme, keeps fighting for profit, and his successes attract the attention of a gorgeous Nordic-American female manager, who is organizing fights for the entertainment of the Jet-Set NYC citizens. She falls in love with him, and acting as his manager, arranges his participation in high-class private fighting matches for the rich. Van Damme wins fame and glory, but his mind is always with his dead brother, and his widow and daughter.
After doing a lot of digging, he finally manages to locate his brother widow and daugter, whereupon one of the most touching scenes of the movie take place, when Van Damme meets his brother's daughter and widow, amid hugs and celebration.
But, his pursuers from the Legion, follow close behind, looking for a chance to seize him. Finally, they manage to track him down, in some makeshift arena where Van Damme is about to meet the late World Wrestling Federation Champion Andre the Giant, in a match to the death, which would be the culmination of his career as U.S. fighter. As the match progresses, we see the two Legionnaire NCO's, formerly his bitter enemies, having changed into stalwart supporters of his, witnessing first-hand his bravery and fighting skill.
After the match is over, the French NCO's make themselves known, and take Van Damme into their custody, despite his brother's widow protests. Then follows the most touching scene in the film, with Van Damme hugging his brother's daughter, tears flowing in his eyes. The scene is so compelling, that even the tough French Legionnaires, after looking each other, cannot avoid to shed the odd tear.
After putting Van Damme in the car, the French NCO's drive only about half a mile down the road, when the car stops suddenly, and Van Damme is set free, in order to return to his dead brother's family.
A truly great movie, one of Van Damme's few movies, which I enjoyed seeing over and over again. The movie will be loved by, not only from those who admire the French Foreign Legion, but from martial arts fans as well, not to say anything of Van Damme's fans, who will absolutely love it. It is one of these rarest of the rare low budget movies that, having started with meager resources, by luck and hard work are turned into pearls.
The hero's devotion and love to his only brother, deeply touched me, and I think also struck a chord deep within the souls of all who saw it. I do not think that there is a single man, who would let his dead brother's wife and daughter suffer, no matter if one was half the planet away from the other. Sometimes, duty to the dead brother's family comes first from duty to country.
A truly outstanding movie:buy it.

Many missed the point...LOOK CLOSER!


American Beauty is truly one of my favorite movies of the past year. i think many who did not like the movie absolutely MISSED THE POINT, which is summed up in the last 5 or 10 minutes of the movie. i was so stirred by the ending of it. i first was confused by much of the film...did i like it? did i hate it? when the final scenes finally played out, i was PROFOUNDLY stirred. i was literally speechless, as was everyone else who left that theater after i saw the film. i recommend it.
yes, it's quirky, even pretentious at times. but guess what? AREN'T WE ALL?
