Pretty Village, Pretty Flame - movie DVD cover picture

This movie is incredible!! It is a "must-see" for all those who are interested in life, politics, and basic human madness. It is a ladder which many of us needed in order to further reach an understanding (or attempt to) of the extremely complex situation in the former Yugoslavia. It is beautifully produced, and the plot unfolds in a very unique fashion. Do beware, you will walk away from this movie with a weird feeling in your stomach and with only one word on your mind..."Why?'

Like nothing on American TV

Once you get past the heavy accent and fast talking speed, and adjust to the very, very quick editing, this is a pretty terrific series. Lots of unexpected little plot twists mixed in with the predictable ones. The acting was all-around very good, the writing was intelligent, and the cast was very interesting to look at. Thank the heavens that some cultures appreciate diversity. American TV & cinema is so ridiculously homogenized in comparison. We watched the entire series in one sitting, and loved it. It certainly evolved in the better direction from its pilot, Heterosexuality. Give this one a try. It's not like AbFab or Queer As Folk (British or American) but itshould appeal to the same audience base.

What happened to the Spider?

I went to see this movie initially because it was something to do. I wasn't expecting much, but boy was I blown away. This is the first movie this year to get in my head and stay there. I've already gone back to see it two more times.
I can't vouch for its accuracy to the comic books, but in and of itself it was a great film. Maguire was perfect. Defoe, of course, was perfect. Even Dunst was good. I left the movie feeling inspired and rejuvenated.
I can't wait to buy the DVD. If only Attack of the Clones had been this good.

Asoka - movie DVD cover picture

A great film that speaks to the power of human redemption. Asoka, the main character, goes from being a warrior prince to an angry despot to finally discovering the magical transformance that can occur when one discover's their love for all of humanity. This is a movie that would be most appropriate for the present time in which our country wants to wage war on a nation (Iraq) that has done nothing to us. Asoka is a subject that should be discussed in all of our public schools and universities.

"Star Wars" of our generation

When I saw this film some while back, I was pleasantly surprised. I didn't expect nearly what I got. I thought Keanu would be doing the "Bill and Ted" thing, and I expected the plot to be nothing more than two hours of music video montage. I was wrong.
Keanu was good. He didn't play a typical role for him. Usually he's either the clear-cut razor-sharp hero or the mushy romantic. In this film he is the reluctant hero, which he played very well. He lost some weight for the role and is quite skinny. Overall I was very pleased with Keanu's performance and I look forward to him coming out with some other good films. Otherwise, the acting was superb from Fishbourne and others.
The story is wonderful. It's well thought out, intriguing, timely, original, and is not the least bit porous. It has left me waiting impatiently for the next in the series.
This movie broke all paradigms with special effects. They actually invented new technology to meet the needs of filming. You will see things that you have never seen before.
The DVD itself is remarkable. There are numerous bonus features contained on the disk, making it a very worthwhile purchase.
Lastly, I called this film the "Star Wars" of our generation. I believe this for several reasons. Like "Star Wars", "The Matrix" wowed us with new technology and a complex storyline that makes you believe that these characters and their world are real. The trilogy aspect is also recognizant of SW, and of course the religious undertones of both films are there if you look. Finally, SW was released when America was excited about space travel and exploration - it was timely. Similarly, "The Matrix" is released during a time of interest in the computer age, specifically artificial intelligence.
This is a DVD that you must buy. It will be a classic twenty years from now.

How to Beat the High Cost of Living - movie DVD cover picture
Underrated Gem

Although the details are dated, _How To Beat The High Co$t Of Living_ is freshly topical, with the economy in a bad way again. The three heroines' problems are, IMO, partly their own fault---but one has to root for their spunky, ingenious heist.
Jane Curtin improvising a striptease to cover her chums' getaway is a real highlight of the disc. She's game, sexy, and believable in her role---a really talented actress. And, for the record, the power is cut off only in _part_ of the mall, not the whole thing---I saw a review of the movie when it came out that didn't understand this point.
