Britannic - movie DVD cover picture
The Titanic's Forgotten Sister


I've read all the reviews and just had to add another one. I'm thrilled that somebody finally made a movie about this forgotten shipwreck. The Britannic was the third of three Olympic Class ships, (Olympic, Titanic and Britannic). Everybody knows the Titanic's story as it's been told and retold and often added to over the years, but what about her sisters? The Olympic had a long career and was retired and scrapped, though the Britannic met a similar fate as Titanic, as described in this TV adaption.

True, the British were at war and the Britannic was serving as a hospital ship, but what caused her rapid sinking is unknown. A Titanic survivor (Violet Jessop) was onboard during the sinking as a nurse on Britannic. And, the casualties of the Britannic were accurately depicted here as seen from the lifeboats, as another lifeboat filled with passengers was chopped to bits by the propellers, a sad fact. So some facts were twisted and turned around, it's a movie, not a National Geographic Documentry.

This is an excellent movie for anybody with a passion for excitement, drama, mystery and shipwrecks. I thought the story was plausable and it kept me interested. The torpedo scene was merely added, my guess as a hint of things to come, and the sinking itself was excellent. The water did look fake but to see this beautiful ship go to her grave was awsome, never before seen in anything more than paintings.

Nobody complained about Cameron's made up love story in 1997's Titanic, or the way he dropped the ball with Molly Brown in the lifeboat, they were movies! A love story was needed, as in the 1953 Titanic with Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck, and it was very suitable in my opinion to incorporate spying and sabotage into this movie . . . it doesn't mean we have to accept it as fact, it's entertainment, pure and simple.

So I give this one of a kind movie five stars. For it's casting, it's graphics, it's story and most of all, for finally giving this forgotten maiden of the sea her moment on the silver screen.

Mastering the Masterpeice


The movie 'The Fellowship of the Ring' has captured the beauty and essance of Tolkien's famed first book of the Lord of the Rings series. It's attention to detail and awesome cinemagraphic affects bring to life what us readers only used to dream about. But even though no movie ever created could possibly come close to being comparable to the magic of the books, this production is the closest thing. Those of us who are Tolkien fanatics, or just interested in owning an amazing movie will surely want to have this DVD. And for me, the day to its release is always too far away. Long live the Lord of the Rings, be it either in the minds of men, elves, dwarves, hobbits, or ents.

The Beatles - The First U.S. Visit - movie DVD cover picture
The Beatles, and America... Redux


Enough time has elapsed now for a new generation to come of age one step removed from the Beatle experience. This film may not explain WHY the Beatles had the impact they did, but it does a fair job of depicting HOW the reaction manifested in so many awe-struck youngsters.

More than anything else, this film is a time capsule. First, it reveals a lot about Beatlemania (at its apogee) from the perspective of the Beatles themselves, at the eye of the media carnival that engulfed them in February 1964. There's lots of intimate, light-hearted footage of the boys at rest, on travel, and as camera-wielding tourists. The Beatles' legendary wit and photogenic charm are evident throughout. It's a fair guess that this film captures them just before their success became a crutch. You wouldn't guess that John Lennon was the leader of the group just on the basis of this film alone. He sometimes appears subdued and bewildered by the commotion around him. In contrast, Paul McCartney was as much of a ham at age 21 as he is now as one of rock music's elder statemen. Paul commands a LOT of screen time, and provided lead vocals for the first two songs in that initial (and explosive) three-song set on the first Ed Sullivan Show. Their musicianship in these performances was crisp and effortless, depite the technological limitations of that era's audio/visual equipment. It actually was not bad at all for four guys who were only 20 to 23 years old.

Second, the film depicts American baby boomers just as their age and numbers were reaching a critical mass that proved irresitible to Madison Avenue and the media. It's been said elsewhere that reaction to the Beatles' arrival served as an emotional release for adolescents who were only 79 days beyond the JFK assassination. The film's many kid-on-the street interviews are a fascinating glimpse of rapidly-fading 1950s innocence, soon to be replaced by the liberated and expressive 1960s counter-culture.

YAy buffy!


Even better then the first season, more episodes, more laughs, more tears. Everything is better, including the hair. It is a more exciting season, as well as much sadder. But there is much less useless backflips, which i miss, but still great. It's a season to remember, and has memorable episodes like, "Surprise", "Killed by Death" and "Becoming". Spike and Drusilla are introduced, they are the most intriguing characters to ever appear on the show. Evil, loving, and so careless. If u loved the first season, get the second... now!

Fabulous!!


My daughter is 15 months old, and when she started watching The Wiggles on the Disney Channel, I decided to buy a video of our own. We both absolutely love it! There isn't much dialogue so it keeps her attention very well. She loves dancing to all the songs. We watch it at least twice a day!

Just give it time!


This movie starts off slow, but it is intended to be that way. It portrays the small "Hickville" town and gradually develops the characters showing their flaws. This movie ends up being a very heart-felt one and if you take the time to follow it...it's great.

Amazing


The scenes of wartime violence are effective and realistic, but it isn't enough to make a movie great. There isn't enough to the movie besides the violence. That doesn't mean the movie is pointless, but the violence takes up too much running time. The scene at the beginning works but the scene of violence at the end is overlong. O.K. war is hell,we get the point. Problem 2: the characters and their journey for the most part aren't exactly memorable. Problem 3: the characters are too modern, THIS MOVIE IS SUPPOSED TO TAKE PLACE OVER FIFTY YEARS AGO! Problem 4: the movie offers little (if any) insight as to what led up to the D-day invasion. Speilberg didn't bother to set up the situation or the characters. In spite of it's problems, it is a very good one and worth seeing, but IT ISN'T GREAT.
