Rush - Rush in Rio (2003) Review

I personally don't understand why some people complain about the sound quality. I think it's fantastic (except maybe the first few songs, seeing as they didn't have a chance for a sound check). You've already heard about how the concert spans almost all of their albums, so I won't bore you with those details. But if you're annoyed at crowd noise, then go pick up one of their "best-of" compilations. Part of listening to a band live is hearing how their energy feeds off of the audience and hearing how much energy the audience has. It was the Brazilians' first time seeing Rush, and seeing how entralled they were only adds to the feel of the DVD.
This DVD is brilliant in my eyes - terrific selection of songs, great energy all throughout the building; they more than make up for the occasional falter in Geddy's voice (which, for some reason or another, is most obvious in Limelight). A+ DVD!

Somewhere in Time - Collector's Edition (1980) Review that it can't happen. That's about the best part of ANY movie. Fantasy and an open mind about things we wish COULD happen is what Hollywood and movies are all about.
What's the fun in a movie if what you were watching was a daily occurence?
I loved the theme, the music, the acting and the style. It's a must for the hopeless romantic.

Yoga Workouts for Dummies (Basic Yoga/Beyond Basic Yoga) Review

At this point I've done this yoga routine 3 times, and I can I already feel the physical and mental benefits of the practice. This is a very good DVD for someone like me who'd never done it before.

Saving Private Ryan (1999) Review

This is a very powerfull film. In gritty detail it shows that War is Hell. The acting is incredible lead by Tom Hanks. This film will make you realise exactly what the cost of freedom is. That the men who fought in this war deserve our undieing gratitude for there sacrifice to our country. This movie will leave a lump in your throat as you see the sacrifice and hell these men went through. No words can describe what they went through and no thanks will ever be good enough. This film brings to life all the emotion, fear and hell brought by war.

Blast Review

For those of you who do not appreciate this fine piece of work it takes some pure steel balls, I mean come on, marching band meets ballet meets anything else you could possibly want. Coming from my own experiences with Blast (seeing them preform live [Raleigh, NC 2003]) nothing can top this except seeing them live like i have..... you must enjoy the craftsmanship and talent it takes to do all the complicated manuevers that they do and while playing all that MEMORIZED music. Keep this DVD on your shelfs at all times

Threesome (1994) Review

This movie could have been so much better. A Triangle with a sraight woman, a straight man, and a gay man. However, the writers never go anywhere with this premise, and central issues are never addressed. The acting is strong, and the movie is pleasant enough, but it never rises above the superficial.

Gone with the Wind (1939) Review

I do hope you'll return and revise your rating to a '5' once you digest this information:

Gone With the Wind was never released in a Widescreen version on DVD because it was never released in a Widescreen version on film. In fact, when it was released (1939), there were NO "Widescreen" movies at all -- becaues no one had yet thought about formatting movies in that way.

Through the 1940s and into the 1950s, essentially ALL movies were in the 3:4 format that we now consider to be "regular". My understanding is that those proportions originally were adopted by the film industry to roughly correspond with the proportions of viewable area for the "live" theaters extant when the film industry started. Similarly, when television arrived in the late 40s/early 50s, its screen format was determined by copying the 3:4 screen proportions of films made up to that time. By the mid-1950s, the film industry became concerned about losing its audience to TV, so various WIDESCREEN formats (CinemaScope was one; I think there was another called VistaVision; I can't remember the others offhand) were conceived by the film industry in the 1950s as a way in which the film industry could distinguish its film products from what could efficiently be shown on television screens. This was the film industry's attempt to keep audiences coming to theaters to see their movies, rather than just waiting to see movie productions on home televisions; by coming to the theater, the audience could experience something different that what television could offer.

Other "ideas" in this effort against TV included attempts to interest audiences in 3D films, as well as enhancing film audio, both by greatly improving sound range and fidelity and later by adding stereo, at a time when TVs had only a single, inexpensive speaker that didn't sound all that "hot." In fact, the creation/addition of 5.1 audio (Surround Sound) was yet another film industry effort to distinguish itself from what then was available for use in homes.

Anyway, if someone now wants to issue a "Widescreen" version of GWTW, the only way to do it (without distorting the content) would be to cut off the top and/or bottom of every frame all the way through -- just think about how THAT would look . . .

Dark City (New Line Platinum Series) (1998) Review

As everyone knows, cinema is very much a visual medium, capable of conjuring up some of the greatest feats of the visual imagination. It's probably why we love the movies so much---some of the greatest ones have the ability to touch upon our imaginations and perceptions just as effectively as other artforms (like literature) can, but movies do it through visual means.

Alex Proyas' DARK CITY is a film that takes advantage of the visual possibilities of the medium and creates a world of dark-toned but spellbinding visual splendor. With the help of startling special effects, first-rate art design, and the widescreen cinematography of Darius Wolski, Proyas truly gives us a feast of awe-inspiring futuristic visuals that thrill you with its sheer imagination. There is a visual energy and grandeur here that is certainly not to be gainsaid.

Often with sci-fi films, it's a bonus if we get a good story to go along with the awesome visuals. DARK CITY stands above the pack because it has a compelling (or, at least, compelling enough) plot to support the epic-scaled visuals, in which John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) has to try to piece together who he truly is and what is going on in the world around him after he wakes up in a hotel tub and finds a dead prostitute in the room. As it turns out, the city is being secretly run by a large group of Strangers who have the ability to stop time and alter reality in order to suit their purpose. (I won't spoil what their purpose is, exactly, but when the explanation comes it may seem to some as brilliantly philosophical, to others simply flaccid.) It is a plot that plays with ideas of not only ever-changing realities, but with ideas about what truly makes up the human soul (is it the mind or the heart?).

Proyas and editor Dov Hoenig do a good job of driving the plot along and truly involving us in it nearly every step of the way. Unfortunately, for all its brilliant visuals and grand themes, there is one disappointing aspect to this film, and that involves the characters. I wish the script had made more of an attempt to develop some of its main characters, particularly its hero. (Rufus Sewell does a serviceable job of making him a sympathetic hero, but he doesn't really have much to work with in the first place.) Most of its characters are basically cliches---particularly the character of Inspector Bumstead, played (unimaginatively) by William Hurt as a typically hardboiled Raymond Chandler-type detective---and the script doesn't really make much of an attempt to develop them beyond their use as basically stock characters in the service of its grand vision.

I complain about the lack of dimensional characterization (a fault that has been in a lot of visionary sci-fi epics, even in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY), but who knows? Maybe too much character development might have hindered the flow of this movie, which moves at a pace that mantains momentum and yet allows us to truly bask in the wondrous visuals. DARK CITY remains, above all, a triumph of awe-inspiring visual imagination and special effects that almost helps compensate for the thin characters. This is a movie that reminded me of why I love the movies so much. Maybe DARK CITY will remind you too. Recommended.

The Last Temptation of Christ - Criterion Collection (1988) Review

As a christian I'm not going into details on the mistakes of this movie. Not only is NOT based on the Gospels which are the TRUE accounts of the life of Jesus. But this movie is way wrong on portraying Jesus as how he was really. The movie however has great music but the script and the direction of a director like Scorsese are just plain dull. The only thing that can save the movie is the music from Peter Gabriel and that's about it. Mel Gibson at least was honest portraying Jesus. Scorsese was just mistaken and missguided for Kazakantis book.

The Bible - Jeremiah (2000) Review

This is a great film! I watched it several times. I urge everyone to watch it. Although I did not like the producers' inclusion of Jeremiah's supposed "female" friend....Above all, it was great! When you are through, check yourself and reflect on your life. Jeremiah was not a weeping prophet for nothing. The Lord spoke through him and warned the people. Do not become complacent and forget about it. Instead, open your Bible and read the whole book of Jeremiah. Learn a thing or two from it! "God created people to be upright, but they have each turned to follow their own downward path." (Ecclesiastes 7:29 NLT) God bless you all!

Digital Video Essentials (2003) Review

The general consensus seems to be that this is hard to navigate, Which I would have to agree with. But then this is a tool, not a movie. There really isn't a way to do this that wouldn't be hard to navigate in anything but a completely linear way.

However, that said, it's easy enough to follow, if a little dull, did manage to improve the image on my Philips 8833 TV using the color filter, etc. learned that my DVD, (or TV) is clipping the darker than black TV signal, etc. V educational, as well has having video test cards on it, which was the real reason I bought it, so I can bounce into the service menu and tweak the geometry of the TV which is just a bit off.

However, while it claims to have a DTS sountrack, (and the free aqaurium DVD that I got with it does have) the DVD itself doesn't. I've got a Yamaha DSP-AZ2, all digital AV amp, and it just doesn't pick it up, even when I force the DVD input, (coming out of the DVD via Fibre Optic) to DTS, I get nothing. This is despite having set the audio track to 6.1. Dolby 5.1 works fine however, and comes in Spanish too, (the PAL version)

The Sound of Music (Single Disc Full Screen Edition) (1965) Review

The Sound of Music is much more than a wonderful musical. The story is so compelling I can almost forget about the music. This is a movie in which the songs really blend into the story. And it is one of the truly romantic movies. Though it was made in the sixties, it does not seem dated or sappy when viewed today. Best of all, the whole family can watch and enjoy it together.

Mo' Better Blues (1990) Review

Ok Denzel is in it playing a bit of a cad. But the real news here is that this is one of Spike's better movies, unlike the forgetable Girl 6 or Bamboozled, both nice efforts but far off the mark. Wesley Snipes, who to me is always better when he plays an evil character, is wonderful in this. Denzel is a little on the flat side in this one, this isn't a Malcolm X or Training Day performance for him. Wesley is wonderful. No action hero [stuff], just a great acting job. Spike is in it as expected and does his usual in his role. Joi Lee is credable and the soundtrack is good if not spectacular. If you are a Spike or a Wesley fan, add it to your collection. If not rent it and give it a look, its worth the price of a rental for sure.

House Party (1990) Review

House Party. The best of the House Party movies. In my opinion, they should've stopped at the first. House Party is about a house party. High school kids getting together to have fun. This movie is soooo funny. From beginning to end you will laugh. You will be able to relate to it. It's a really great movie. It's well written and the acting is good. Sure there's a whole lotta profanity in it, but that contributes to the humor. Makes you just wanna get up and dance.

Now the 2nd and 3rd don't even compare. They're downright ridiculous. They shouldn't have been made. But they were so I guess I'll have to live with it. If you choose to see them, that's on you. But just be sure to check out the first House Party. You will not regret it.

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (Special Edition) (1984) Review

It's really sad that there are people who don't get the movie have to pass themselves off as film critics. The people who say this film is low budget, plotless, and generally a bad film are obviously over-Lucas-ized and can't get passed the 'Star Wars is the measuring stick of Sci-Fi' mentatility. This movie was designed to have a low-budget look. It's supposed to have a campy feel with stupid dialog. THAT'S THE POINT! It's a flashback to the Ed Wood era. Wondering why the alien ships look like sea shells? They are! They wanted a non-tech look. No plot? Are you nuts, there's a clear plot. Some folks must have gone to the bathroom. This film stands the test of time... if you can laugh every time it's played, it's a good sign. This classic is not meant to be a big epic film and win an Oscar; it ain't the Godfather. It's fun, plain and simple. The stars shine, Ellen Barkin is unbelievably sexy, Jeff Goldblum is perfect as the new guy, Peter Weller plays the straight-man with flawless ease, and John Lithgow is a god. If you buy this film, do yourself a favor and just enjoy it. Don't compare it to Star Wars, cuz that's not what it's trying to be. In a world full of 'reality' programming and realism, we need this 2 hour escape!

I'm still waiting for the sequel... BB Versus The World Crime League... WHERE IS IT!?

"No, no, don't pull on that, you don't know what it may be attached to"

Hilary Duff - The Concert - The Girl Can Rock Review

I never used to like Hilary Duff until my brother got me this DVD for Christmas- Now i absolutly love her! She's really beautiful, and she rocks like no other teen out there! And she's really nice, too. On this DVD, its shot at two different concert. You'll be able to tell, because Hil's clothes change, and so does the stage (One stage is round and one is square)
If you like sweet music and also a bit of rock, this is for you!

Crunch - Pick Your Spot Pilates (2002) Review

This is a great exercise video. I'd never done Pilates before, and was somewhat skeptical as to whether I could do it, but this is a great tape, esp. the abs part. I do a couple of videos, including Denise Austin "Hit the Spot", Jazzercise, and The Firm videos. I love this one because if I'm short on time, I can do one or two 10 minute segments, but usually I do all 3, for a 30 minute workout I can feel good about. The instructor is very easy to understand, reminds you about proper form, and is encouraging w/o being annoying. The set is a normal exercise studio, nothing fancy, but I'm not looking at the scenery, and the others working out with the instructor are in tune with her, and are all physically fit. There is one person doing a modified workout for those not up to the full workout. I'm pretty fit, but this is even a good workout for those who are just beginning, and those who aren't in great shape. I don't have any negatives to add. This is just an overall good workout.

The Elephant Man (1980) Review

Based on the true story of the "elephant man" and shot in black and white, this is an unforgettable film. While the plight of John Merrick is in itself fascinating, David Lynch's cinematic artistry brings a well-balanced storytelling that's neither over-dramatic nor phony. The black and white production is a little difficult on the eyes sometimes, and a few scenes drag on for too long, but the film is engaging. My only other gripe is Hopkins's so-so performance as the doctor.

This is a film no movie lover should miss.

It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) Review

With non-stop action and laughter throughout, It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World is one of the best movies for getting a laugh. Starting in the Desert above the cochella valley and ending in Santa Monica, you will be taken on the ride of your life with great actor/comedians.

These were the best of their day, like Rat Race, it featured the funniest people of the time. Even had great straight men in Spencer Tracy, to name the best. The scene's of the police office, the race to the Big dubya and all made this the funniest movie of the 60s. Clean language, great comedy for the whole family.

I prefer the VHS because of the full length. When the DVD goe full length, watch will sell big.

This is a video to definately have in your library.....the treasure is under the W, the big W.....who will get there first?

Nine Dead Gay Guys (2003) Review

Word of warning: if you are even the slightest bit offendable, this movie is not for you. Everyone is a target here. Gays, Jews, blacks, the elderly, short people, lesbians, not one topic is sacred.

That said, this off the wall sex farce has its moments, but never quite gels into anything memorable. The plot, such as it is, revolves around two London club drinkers (Kenny and Bryon) who are willing to go down on the locals in a gay bar for drink money, all the while insisting that they aren't gay. (Or are they?) Then comes the news that one of the regulars is dead, and the intimations that there is a substantial amount of cash hidden somewhere the property of one of his regular tricks. Naturally, the men who find it first are going to be the collectors. But not before 8 more dead gay guys make their way into the picture for different silly reasons. Problem is, these characters are rushed in and out of the movie so quickly that you may never get a clue as to what their function is other than to become the punch line of a tasteless joke.

Ultimately, "9 Dead Gay Guys" is more bark than bite. If there had been a little more attention to developing this into more than a couple of obvious naughty laughs, it could have been so much funnier. Not like tastelessness is a problem with the movie, the whole design is to BE without taste and offend as many folks as quickly as possible. Now if all that sounds appealing to you, you'll probably enjoy the movie and its running gags about sex, gays, death, drinking and the Really Hard Red Bull Test. Of which Kenny may just be the one man who can pass, in more ways than one.

Cowboy Bebop Complete Sessions Collection ( Exclusive) Review

Cowboy Bebop is one of the most popular anime series on the planet, generating huge sales on both sides of the Pacific. The twenty-six episode series has been airing on Cartoon Network for years, and yet every time they try to pull it off the air there is such an uproar from fans that it invariably reappears on the lineup. Its a sensation in a way few other animes are.

Upon watching the series, the reasons for all the buzz become abundantly clear. No other anime series combines such high production values with such a unique sense of style and such a memorable cast of characters. Not only that, but it actually challenges to audience to think and pushes emotional buttons most action animes don't dare touch.

The premise of the show is simple. In the future, bounty hunters known as cowboys fly around the solar system catching bounty heads for the government. The show focuses on the crew of the spaceship "Bebop," led by Spike Speigel and Jet Black. Also on board are sexpot troublemaker Faye Valentine, computer hacker Ed, and that lovable Welsh Corgie Ein. The series chronicles their adventures through space while effortlessly switching genres and providing strong standalone tales which help paint a larger picture.

Since the show is episodic (a rarity in anime), the reoccuring cast of characters is what grounds the show. The crew of the Bebop are all well developed, fully convincing people with past secrets, present flaws, and future desires. The element that connects each individual episode is how they all contribute to developing this cast of misfits, slowly revealing information until the end of the series leaves us with four fully realized characters.

Being the star, Spike naturally gets the most developement, and its the story of his past developed over five scattered episodes that form the main thrust of Bebop's narrative. These episodes deal with Spike's history as a member of the Red Dragon crime syndicate and his dubious relationships with a man named Vicious and a mysterious blonde called Julia. These episodes prove the be the series' best written and executed, with "Ballad of Fallen Angels" (which introduces Vicious) being the standout. That episode's climatic shootout in an abandoned cathedral is one of the most beautifully executed set pieces I've ever seen animated, perfectly combining music, visual flair, and emotion into one amazing sequence.

Of course, Faye, Jet, and Ed all get episodes that focus on their pasts too. And all the while they pursue bounty heads in adventures the touch upon just about every genre imaginable. For instance, the episode "Pierrotte le Fou" is a visceral thriller, while two episodes later is the gut-bustingly funny spaghetti western "Cowboy Funk." Whatever genre its in, every episode sports smart, well-written scripts with plenty of clever dialogue. Each episode is also animated with a cineamatic flair that helps to establish Bebop's utterly unique style.

And then there's that glorious, glorious Yoko Kanno score. The lady really outdid herself this time, switching genres as often as the episodes do without missing a beat. The score is so good I went through the trouble of importing one of the soundtrack CDs (there are at least three) before they became domestically available. As with all her work, Kanno's score manages to perfectly underscore the dramatic action while remaining highly enjoyable on its own.

Cowboy Bebop is a must have for anyone even casually interested in anime. The show's combination of action, character drama, and overwhelming style is unmatched. The smartly written episodes will still entertain after multiple viewings. And Bebop has one of the very best dub casts ever recorded. Buy this show now. You won't be disappointed.

Run Lola Run (1999) Review

I loved this movie. It is quirky, but that appealed to me. I found the diversions interesting. The format of running the story over three times didn't seem odd to me. I found it a new way to look at a film without feeling like it was an "ART" film. I can't say that making another movie like this would work, but it worked for this movie.
This is also the first and only commentary I have watched immediately after seening the movie for the first time. After the movie ended, I turned on the commentary and watched again. I thought Franka Potente and Tom Tykwer give great added information to the movie. They don't take it too seriously but rather take you along as they reminense about how the movie was made.
I realize people have different tastes in movies, but I recommend this movie for EVERYONE over 18. A friend of mine watched this and HATED the fact that it went over the same story three times. I don't know how to counter that other than to say, open your mind and give this movie a try.

SpongeBob SquarePants - The Complete 1st Season Review

I actually bought this for my niece and have another in my shopping cart at this time. "Help Wanted" was actually considered a pre-season episode and is probably why its not on this DVD. Just thought I would give everyone a heads-up about that.

Moulin Rouge (Double Digipack) (2001) Review

My teacher and I watched this movie together because neither one of us could believe that there was anything remotely Buddhist about it. We were dead wrong. Not to beat the point because there are a few discussion strings already on this website about the religious symbolism and spiritual content of the movie, we re thinking of using it for teaching and meditation purposes. Once we have something together we will post the link to the material.

In the meantime, if you have not seen this movie you should make a point of doing so very soon. It is a historic film.

Greatest Moments in Super Bowl History (2000) Review

Ya know, there ain't nothin' quite like the NFL post-season (kickin' off in just a couple days as I write this) to get me in the mood to watch those great moments and teams from past championships that NFL films has shot and preserved for posterity. Along with my 49ers, Redskins, and Broncos Super Bowl season highlight tapes, this particular DVD becomes required watchin' to help me get my fix for those long days that fall between the playoff rounds. Namath's guaranteed win, Garo Yepremian's immortal gaffe to cap off the Miami Dolphins' undefeated season, the dominance of the Steelers, 49ers, & Cowboys, Jim O'Brien's game-winning kick in the most poorly-played Super Bowl by both teams, Joe Montana's game-winning drive, the pathetic efforts of the four-time loser Minnesota Vikings, Buffalo Bills, and Denver Broncos, John Elway's inspiring spin-dive in game XXXII, a Titans receiver coming up a yard short as time runs out, and much more all come together to get me pumped for what hopefully will be the next championship game of the ages. But considering how most Super Bowls tend to be pretty one-sided affairs, I might be asking a bit too much with my hopes...

Unlike most of the folks who've punched in their thoughts on this presentation, I thought it covered the big dance's best & worst moments quite well without gettin' TOO in-depth, and wasn't too short at all. Heck, with all the interviews with key participants, different camera angles of memorable plays, alternate radio broadcast tracks, pop-up player stats, action photos, and other moments they threw onto this as "interactive features" (more on this in the next paragraph), it took me over three hours to watch everything! So what's all this I hear about this platter not having enough material? I also liked NFL Films dropping the chronological format, and divvying up the various big dances by various chapters that focus on such things as the Masters of the Game (the Super Bowl's 2-plus-time MVPs Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, and Joe Montana), running backs (Larry Csonka, Emmitt Smith, Franco Harris, John Riggins, Timmy Smith (?!), et. al.), quarterbacks (Troy Aikman, Kurt Warner, Steve Young, etc.), defenses (Dallas' Doomsday defense, the Steelers' Steel Curtain, the 1985 Bears' 46 defense, and so forth), special teams, coaches, and other related positions and aspects of the sport.

Then there's the interactive features, which were the only real annoyance I encountered whilst watching this bad-boy. That, and they made Leon Lett's little gaffe in game XXVII a side feature, rather than a part of the main attraction. Also, there are some parts where the picture clarity wasn't all that great, but I blame that more on the source material than I do the video transfer. Stuff filmed in slo-mo tends to be quite a bit grainier than the regular speed variety. Anyhoo, each feature comes with an icon that pops up in the lower right corner of the screen as the show runs, prompting the viewer to access it with his DVD remote. I had trouble working them out at first, `cuz the buttons the liner notes told me to push on my DVD remote didn't activate the features they said they would. After a few rounds of random clicking, however, I eventually figured most of it out. But after taking a good look at the bonus bits, I came to the conclusion that NFL Films could've made things a lot easier if they'd just dropped most of this "interactive" nonsense, and just put the extras aside as bonus materials to be looked at after watching the feature presentation. But, this being one of NFL Films' earlier DVD release, they just HAD to get all experimental...

Then there's the inevitable thing with this and other shows like it: as the Roman numerals advance, this becomes more and more out of date, lacking the great moments from subsequent Super Bowls. Like Adam Vinatieri's game-winning kick in XXXVI. Or Raiders QB Rich Gannon throwin' three TD passes to the other team in XXXVII. Fortunately, NFL Films tends to get around this by producing a new & updated "Greatest Super Bowl Moments" show every four to five years, and subsequently broadcast on ESPN or TNT the week before the big dance. That, and they'll put together a new half-hour segment out of the best parts of the latest contest and play it on ESPN2 during Super Bowl week the following year. Speakin' of which, I'm glad to see NFL Films has finally started putting these Super Bowl highlight shows out on DVD in ten-game box sets. If you're an ardent NFL / Super Bowl nut, I highly recommend it! It sure hit the spot for me, and would make a great companion piece to this presentation on any football nut's DVD shelf. My overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Roger & Me (1989) Review

I love this movie. I think it's really nice to see somebody who actually roots for the little guy, the REAL backbone of this great nation.

eXTReMe Tracker
