Second Star To Right...And Straight On Till Morning


The Right Stuff is a great film from 1983. Based on author Thomas Wolfe's book of the same name, the film chronicles the birth of America's space program, and our goal to beat the Russians to the moon.
Written and directed by Phillip Kaufman, the movie highlights the pioneering spirit of the heroes behind the Mercury program, and the highs and lows they had to face, in order to reach for the stars. Heroes like Chuck Yeager (Sam Shepard), John Glenn (Ed Harris), Gordo Cooper (Dennis Quaid), Gus Grissom (Fred Ward) and Alan Shepard (Scott Glenn, are all brought to vivid life by a top notch cast. At times, The Right Stuff, takes a few liberties in order to tell the story. But in the end, those times of "revisionist history", never turn the epic into any kind of sham. The film is breathtaking and it even reminded me how important the space program still is--even in the wake of the recent shuttle Columbia tragedy-perhaps, it's even more important than ever before.
I am so pleased that Warner Brother's decided to celebrate the film's 20th Anniversary with a two disc DVD set. All of mojor extras can be found on the 2nd disc. The bonus material is combination of film recollections/retrospectives and actual historical footage and perspectives. John Glenn is given an in depth profile called "American Hero", The Journey And The Mission takes us inside the historical events and the film, no less than 3 more documentaries feature cast, crew members and comments from the folks who are portrayed in the film. The 13 deleted scenes are nice to see and as fan of The Right Stuff, is my favorite extra. Award notes (found on disc one),an interactive timeline of the space program, and the theatrical trailer tops off this highly recommended set that should part of anyone's DVD collection

A Wonderful Romantic Comedy!


Freddie Prinze Jr. does it again, but this time with the beautiful Julia Stiles. He plays the son of a chef, while Julia plays a girl with a great interest in art. They go through the dating experience, with some great suprises. I highly recomend this movie for people of all ages, especially teens. I was really wonderful!

Awesome


This movie was the best movie of 2004, so far. It is so creative and the ideas are genius. This is the movie that answers what happens to Mr. Pink in Resivior Dogs. He ends up being a famous poet and stilll robs banks. ok kidding aside this movie was good and fun. this is an opinion and it just so happens that Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I mean look at his resume, Pee Wee Big Adventure, Edward Scissorhands, and Sleepy Hollow, not to mention making the best comic book movie ever, Batman, and the also awesome sequel, Batman Returns, that has jim varney(ernest) in it

Absolutely Superb...The Monarch of Meteor Movies


I enjoyed Armageddon as much as the next person. However, to me it's just a typical Don Simpson/ Jerry Bruckheimer action movie where the good guys always win, and the theme is generally light- hearted; i.e., Top Gun, Crimson Tide, Last Boy Scout, Beverly Hills Cop 1/2/3, The Rock, Face-Off, Con-Air, etc. DEEP IMPACT is, in my opinion, a wonderful story which is fairly realistic about what could take place in our society in the event of a potential threat of an E.L.E (try searching this on the net and see what you get). My "hat's off" to Mimi Leder (who has also directed a few episodes of "E.R.") for a first-rate job with a wonderful and very believable cast. The emotion generated by the story is not completely dependent upon CGI special-effects, but seeing the small comet hit earth and the resulting tidal wave demolish New York City will take your breath away. This movie also has an informative and innovative website (www.deepimpactmovie.com) worth checking out. Actually, if Morgan Freeman really wants to run for president, he should consider selecting Robert Duvall as a running-mate; or, vice-versa. Either way, they've got my vote. Hopefully, DEEP IMPACT will get your vote too. This is a must-see; it has definitely climbed the ranks to the top five in my "favorite movies" hierarchy.

Halloween H20 - Twenty Years Later (Dimension Collector's Series) - movie DVD cover picture
Excellent!!


Halloween H20 is excellent! Terror from the first minute! I was shacking in the theater wondering what would happen next! Jamie Lee give the best performance of a mother with a dark past and fighting off alcohol abuse. The part where Michael and Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) stand face to face was wonderful! Michael gave it the special touch adding the head tilt that he gave in the first Halloween! Jamie Lee's character reminded me a little of Neve Campbell in Scream2 when she went back to fight of her fear. Surprisingly Kevin Willaimson who wrote Scream, Scream2, and IKWYDLS co-wrote this film! I couldn't get this film out of my head! I still can't! I went and saw it 12 times before it left the theaters! Who cares about the price! By the movie! TERROR FROM THE START!!

The Big O (Vol. 1) - movie DVD cover picture
WE Have Come to Terms


In Short the big O is pretty darn good. Imagine Batman driving around an enormous robot with seemingly limitless power, lots of fights, explosions, and neat music. The visual style is stupendous with animation that has a anime feel to it but looks very american too.(once again the Batman series from the early 90's, remember the one with the realistic animation and dark overtones. Then add a japanese influence to it). ASide from Looks and cool fight factor, big O has a complex and twisting storyline. If only the series had been finished anyways. Many episodes foreshadow future events or revelations that wwere never developed, and only hinted at. The series jsut kinda ends o na big [...] cliffhange, and thats it. The show seems only ok, until you've seen it all, then you can piece togeether some of the stuff from the first few episodes and it STARTS to make sense. Altho it's like only 1/2 a series was created, whatever happened to the other half i dunno. So after you watch it, and get hooked on it you must do 2 things. A) Buy the dvd or vhs versions when they come out B) CALL, WRITE, STALK BANDAI CARTOON NETWORK and SUNRISE Entertainment, and tell them to make more BIG-O episodes. Say Yo! I need My O!
So watch it and see if you like it, if yer mildly interested get Vol2 and so on. If you wanna know the truth. You can technically just buy vol.4 and get all the info you need about the story in 1 great little chunk. But don't do that, that would be cheating. THis series reminds me of a cowboy bebop that almost was. WHY WONT THEY FINISH IT. JUST FOR ME? maybe if i make puppy dog eyes at em they will.

Saturday Morning Cartoons Resurrected!!


Warner Bros. has my hats down for bringing out the Hanna Barbera Collection and now they are responsible for bring out the SuperFriends!! One of the best parts of growing up was watching Saturday Morning Cartoons!! While Challenge of the SuperFriends was a delight, there was a void in episodes involving the Wonder Twins!! Jayne and Zan were very much part of the Justice League and glad that they are now on DVD!!

We fans want MORE of the SuperFriends including ALL the Short-episodes of the Wonder Twins!!
