|Cirque Du Soleil: Alegria||2001||93 mins||Music; Special Interest; Musical||Cirque Du Soleil: Alegria (2001) isn't to be confused with the 1999 movie by the same name.

Alegria is rather thin on plot, the power of watching the troop Cirque Du Soleil perform is in the magic of the circus, the acrobats, the lighting, the fantasy. Alegria means "joy" in Spanish and the basic story being told through the voices and antics of Tamir, Fleur, the clowns, the old birds, nymphs, and the like, is a story of people drawing upon their inner strength to change the old ways in society that oppresses us and others. It of course is done in a very magical Cirque du Soleil way, with stunning music and artistry, but it's basically a story of hope and a gentle prodding to a call to action and ultimately, to celebrate the joy in life.||Details|

|Endless Summer||1966||90 mins||Documentary; Sports||The surfer’s dream is to follow the summer around the world. Bruce Brown narrates the film on his trip with his surfing buddies, Robert August and Mike Henson as they pursue that dream. The surfboards are their only luggage and as they travel form coastline to coastline and around the world to Tahiti, Australia Africa and Hawaii. They visit a number of other countries that most people have never heard of; places where surf boards were something new for the native people. In their travels they are able to learn a lot about the world and people of different cultures as they continue to search for that perfect wave.||Details|
|Endless Summer 2||1994||109 mins||Action; Adventure||Thirty years after making the greatest surfing movie of all time - "Endless Summer", with Mike Hynson and Robert August as two surfers who try to achieve the ultimate dream (an endless Summer of waves, girls, sun, and surf)- Bruce Brown decided to shoot a sequel. He took two more surfers, a shortboarder and a longboarder, and traveled the world again. This time around, the surfing world is much larger than just Hawaii and California, so the guys don't really get to play "surfing ambassador" on this trip like the two other guys did in 1964.
Robert August makes a guest appearance. Since completing his surfing odyssey in 1964, he's now known as one of the greatest surfboard shapers in the business, specializing in longboards. One of the greatest tragedies in the world is the fact that the board he used in "Endless Summer" ended up on a used surfboard rack and was sold, lost forever to a nameless surfer who probably didn't know what he had. However, August has made a living creating duplicates of that board and they continue to sell well. But I'm deviating from the movie.
Again we have Bruce Brown giving narration to the film, although in this movie the cameras recorded sound, so we can hear the surfers reactions to the waves and rides rather than have Brown interpret them for us (though I miss his narration - it was much funnier in his retelling). And we have the familiar tune from The Sandals, but recorded with better guitars. This time the two title surfers go to places not normally associated with water sports, such as Alaska and France. But even here, with the improvement in wetsuit technology in the past 30 years, surfers are riding waves. We also get treated to a brief history of surfing at the beginning of the film, which is a nice tribute to the sport which has done well for Brown.
Interspersed between the surfers' travels are clips from surf competitions, famous moments in surf history, and some fantastic underwater photography. While the trailer to the movie focused on the big action scenes (a la the "X Games" influence of ESPN), the movie itself actually follows a less MTV-heart attack pace, showing us the grace and beauty of moving on a wall of water. The advances in camera technology have really benefitted filmmakers, and it shows in this movie.
So is the sequel as good as the original? Yes, if not better. While I miss the relaxing humor of Bruce Brown's narration that was in the original, the photography of the sequel is much better. I'd suggest watching both.

|Fat Albert And The Cosby Kids #1||1972||30 mins||Animation; Comedy; Family||If you want more than just a starter, try the 2005 DVD sets, "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Vol. 1: The Original Animated TV Series", this is the first attempt to release the shows in their original intended order, so volume 1 starts at the beginning in 1972 with the first 12 episodes. And the early years were the best in my opinion. There was a set in 2004 called the "Ultimate Collection" which kind of randomly chose 20 episodes from across the years for each of 4 volumes, but that set is already out of print. Yet the issue on this page made at the same time is still available. Well, no matter how you buy it, get yourself some Fat Albert today!||Details|

|Finding Neverland||2004||106 mins||Family; Fantasy; Biography||"Finding Neverland" is an emotive biography of James M. Barrie, the author of the children's books "Peter Pan" and "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens." The movie gives insight into Barrie's relationship with a dying woman and her three children, who Barrie becomes rather attached to. The relationship is not really a romantic one, but rather a closeness between a friend and family. The resulting inspiration to Barrie's career as a playwright is astounding. This new play might be enough to resurrect the failing Barrie's career. Despite much criticism and doubt over his newest venture, the imaginative new play brings nostalgia about childhood.||Details|
|First Family||1980||95 mins||Comedy||This seemed like it couldn't miss--a satire on the First Family with Bob Newhart as the President, Madeline Kahn as a drunk First Lady and First Daughter Gilda Radner as a nymphomaniac. And it was written and directed by Buck Henry. Unfortunately this is a shambles.
The cast is game and does what it can--but the script isn't funny. The jokes are lame and infantile and, at one point, has everybody in ridiculous costumes for a costume party (like that's supposed to be funny). There are a few good moments here and there (that's why I'm giving it a 2) but mostly the movie just lays there. Towards the end it got almost painful to see this talented cast struggling with a lousy script. It's to everybody's credit that they come through this with their dignity intact. You'll notice Bob Newhart or Buck Henry have never even mentioned this film. That should tell you something.

|I Was A Teenage Werewolf||1957||76 mins||Horror; Science Fiction||Michael Landon, contrary to what some believe, never downplayed his connection to this film for it gave him his start in show business. He may at first have had doubts about being connected with it with the initial uproar, which is why he turned down the chance to play the werewolf a second time, but after that, he never bad-mouthed the film. In fact, he paid homage to it on a Halloween episode of "Highway to Heaven."
Anyway, the acting is good all around with standout performances by Landon and Whit Bissell. The "science" used to turn Tony into the monster may be silly today, but in the 1950's, there were a lot of talk and film plots about past-life regression following the Bridey Murphy newspaper accounts (also used in THE SHE-CREATURE). Again you had to live in the 1950's to understand all this. Philip Scheer's werewolf makeup is one of the better pre-Howling/American Werewolf ones in movie history and while the transformation scene isn't as good as in THE WOLF MAN or THE WEREWOLF, the director did not have a lot of money or time to work with and did a good job considering.
A film has to be pretty good, even with a low budget, to be as successful as this one was...and to remain a cult favorite 45 years later. It has stood the test of time and deserves to be considered a classic of its kind.

It therefore seems natural for Anderson to fully insert the "classic" into classic rock with symphonic arrangements of Jethro Tull songs performed in concert with Frankfurt, Germany's New Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, the flutist and orchestra breathe new life into the tricky time changes and long suites of Tull classics like "Calliandra Shade," "Griminelli's Lament," "Locomotive Breath," and, of course, "Aqualung."

|Indiana Jones Trilogy Extras||2003||127 mins||Documentary||Naturaly the first part reveals the origins of Raiders of the lost ark. The Tom Selleck story even including his screen-test with Sean Young. Alfred Molina is worth mentioning, as he has the most fun recounting his film debut. Meanwhile Harrison Ford looks as if he has had hair implants or something. There are more snippets of behind the scenes footage, but unfortunately most of them turn out rather embarrassing (Spielberg bothering Indy with a Micky Mouse voice). On the up side, we finally get to see where Artoo and Threepio are hidden amongst the hieroglyphics.
When Willard Huyk and Gloria Katz were asked to work on the Temple of Doom, they were handed a lot of leftover scenes that never make it into the previous film and an order to name every character after a major crew members' pet. Kate Capshaw now claims to have been a serious art house actress before meeting Spiel, but her IMDb credits reveal no such thing. What is blatantly obvious was Stevens infatuation with her: they never stopped flirting on set.
After all that complaining about the lack of lightness in the second film, everybody brightens up discussing The Last Crusade. Old footage only shows them fooling around on set (quite a difference compared to Star Wars). Sean Connery tells about the input he had on his character: making him less Yoda and more Sean. There are 1988 interviews with River Phoenix and Denholm Elliott with GREAT BIG DATES IN THE SUBTITLES so nobody would think these people are still alive. By this time they were running out of creepy crawlies and had to breed disease free rats themselves (as well as mechanical ones to set on fire).
|Inglourious Basterds||2009||148 mins||Action; Adventure; War||In Nazi occupied France, young Jewish refugee Shosanna Dreyfus witnesses the slaughter of her family by Colonel Hans Landa.

As the relentless executioners advance and the conspiring young girl's plans are set in motion, their paths will cross for a fateful evening that will shake the very annals of history.||Details|
|Inside / Outside - Billabong||2008||52 mins||Surfing||Inside/Outside takes place during and around the 2008 WTC Billabong Pro Tahiti event (ASP Men’s World Tour). There’s a lot of focus on the trials, where the surf was much bigger and the majority of Billabong’s team was surfing. I have to say the trials had some of the biggest Teahupoo ever paddled into.
There are clips between each section with interview questions for the top surfers. A lot of classic stuff is said, my favorite is Bruce describing how it turns into a wave contest out there when it’s small, “Pretty much everyone on tour can ride the barrel, come out, do their little wig-wig thing (makes wiggle-wiggle hand gesture)”.
The movie isn’t all Teahupoo, there are a lot of free surf sessions around the island. Laurie Towner, Wade Goodall, Dean Bowan, and Tamaroa McComb really tear it up.
There’s also a nice section of Parko, Donavon, and Bruce boating out for a secret spot mission. Great footage of them trying to help Parko start the outboard motor and then lots of good water shots from the wave they surf.
|Insidious||2011||103 mins||Horror; Mystery; Thriller||Insidious sees the parties behind two horror heavyweights - the creators of Saw and the producers of Paranormal Activity - join forces for an almighty fright-fest. Yet while the result of their unholy union is chock-full of scares, it fails to hit the horror heights of its predecessors, creating the requisite atmosphere but never quite delivering on its promise. A twist on the clichéd haunted house genre, the film finds teacher Josh (Patrick Wilson), pianist Renai (Rose Byrne) and their three children moving into a beautiful new abode. But while on the surface they appear to have achieved domestic bliss, there's something horribly amiss in their new home.||Details|

In a world where every word is assumed to be the absolute truth, Mark easily lies his way to fame and fortune.

With the entire world now hanging on his every word, there is only one thing Mark has not been able to lie his way into: the heart of the woman he loves.||Details|

|Journey Into Buddhism Trilogy||2004||255 mins||Documentary||The 3 dvds let filmmaker John Bush reveal this epic journey over 4.5 hours while visiting the most amazing temples, villages, caves, mountains and rivers in so many different places in Asia. I was particularly moved by the Burma and Tibet segments as there is so much difficulty there, while the people are so beautiful and their cause is so just.
These are not the usual talking heads type documentaries but more intuitive,spontaneous and revealing. We follow the camera into rare and seldom seen places and hear the legends and spiritual significance of each place. I was particularly impressed by the music which seemed very well suited to each scene and added to the dramatic structure. David Hykes' harmonic chants are hypnotic. There is a huge amount of the local music that is extraordinary and which I have never heard before. Each dvd has two viewing choices - with a narrator and with just music and sound. I look forward to this one.
While I know something about Buddhism I was relieved that the films do not have any sectarian biases - you do not have to be a Buddhist to "get" what John Bush is offering here. He presents it all in an informed but universal way that is quite engaging. There is something noble in seeing the grandeur and simplicity of these Asian venues dedicated to nothing but the discovery of wisdom & compassion.
The cinematography is world class and gets into very intimate and privileged places within these many sacred places. The 3 dvds offer penetrating journeys into the spiritual realms of Thailand, Laos. Burma, Cambodia, Bali, Java and traditional Tibet. The narration is minimal, poetic and at times mildly academic. The words do have a real feeling of allegory and while describing exotic cultures still felt deeply personal to me and my life.
The filmmaker, John Bush, shows no religious bias and the dvds are excellent for Buddhists, travelers or anyone simply interested in discovering these worlds seldom seen. I highly recommend this collection. They stand repeated viewing and have enough depth to keep revealing more.

|Julia Child: The French Chef||2005||432 mins||Three servings of practical cooking advice per one serving of nostalgia is the recipe for this 18-episode culinary collector’s item. The French Chef with Julia Child, the pioneering public television series which premiered in 1962, brought French cuisine to American kitchens without a dash of pretension. Child (1912-2004), a cooking legend and cultural icon with her 6’2" commanding-yet-self-deprecating presence, leads viewers through some of her favorite and classic recipes with requisite humor and congeniality. The three-disc compilation is divided into Starters and Side Dishes; Main Courses; and Desserts and Other Classics, and includes several printable recipes from each category. In vintage black and white, the collection begins with "The Potato Show" and Child’s sage counsel, "When you flip anything you must have the courage of your convictions," before she flips half of her sautéed potatoes onto the stovetop. Peppered throughout the collection are such reminders of why Child was so endearing: she let the camera roll through all her culinary disasters. In another show, "To Roast a Chicken," Child lines up five headless poultry as if arranging for a family photo, while earnestly discussing the differences between a fryer and a roaster, the "full glory of its chickendom." Even non-gourmands will find themselves captivated by such vintage entertainment, while passionate epicureans will relish step-by-step demonstrations of wonders such as boeuf bourguignon (from her debut show), salad Nicoise, bouillabaisse a la Marseillaise, and mousse au chocolat.||Details|
|Julie & Julia||2009||123 mins||Biography; Comedy; Romance||Julie & Julia is a film that should be relished with gusto--accompanied by the freshest and best ingredients, pounds of butter, and bottles of the very best wine. It lovingly celebrates the life of one of American food's most influential and beloved figureheads: Julia Child--played here with zest, humor, and a sweet, subtle respect by Meryl Streep, whose performance is spectacular.
Julie & Julia is based on the book by Julie Powell, a frustrated New York bureaucrat who wants to be a writer. "But you're not a writer until someone publishes you," she moans. So she gives herself a challenge: to cook her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking in one year, and to blog about it. As Powell (played with chirpy determination by Amy Adams), begins to find her groove as a cook, and her voice as a writer, the project takes on a life of its own--and in the end it does provide the struggling young woman with her life's purpose, to her very pleasant surprise. But mostly, Julie & Julia is a valentine to Child, to Child's amazing love affair with her dashing husband, Paul (Stanley Tucci, as divine as any soufflé in the film), and to her outlook on embracing life, and ordering seconds. Streep throws herself into the Child role with real affection for her character, and while certain of Child's idiosyncrasies--including her warbly voice and unflappable haphazardness in the kitchen--are retained, it's Child's character and vision which form Streep's portrayal, and which make the film so involving and rewarding.
Nora Ephron directs with deftness and a light touch, though she seems at times to be encouraging some of Meg Ryan's onscreen tics in Adams (the self-conscious head tilt, for one). But mostly she simply allows Streep to channel Child and her love of food, her husband, and 1950s Paris. And that is a recipe for something truly sublime.

|The Kentucky Fried Movie||1977||90 mins||Comedy||A series of comedy vignettes, ranging in length from seconds to tens of minutes parodying almost every aspect of pop culture in the seventies. It roughly follows the broadcasting day of a television station, although bits like "Zinc Oxide and You," a jab at high school health films and the pseudo trailer "Catholic High School Girls in Trouble" deviate from the format. The longest bit is "A Fistful of Yen," a high octane conflagration of early Bruce Lee and Clint Eastwood. Notable among the cast are Technician #2 (David Zucker), Technician #1 (Jim Abrahams), Technician #3 (Jerry Zucker), all in "Eyewitness News." Celebrities appear in the "That's Armageddon" skit, including The Architect (George Lazenby), and the Clumsy Waiter (Donald Sutherland).||Details|

Kicking The Dog is the story of that summer - a story about real life.

Despite its title, "Ong Bak 2" bears but a tenuous relationship to the earlier Jaa film, being an historical semi-epic set during the era of Ayutthayan imperial expansion (though, without wanting to give too much away, the closing sequence does suggest this new film can be regarded as a prequel of sorts, while also setting up the grounds for further entries to come), but it does explore similar thematic terrain as "Ong Bak" in terms of cultural identity and conflict, familial disintegration and revenge, and Buddhist spirituality. "Ong Bak 2" is a bigger film in every sense of the word, allegedly costing in excess of 300 million baht, and the money is easy to see on the screen with very impressive set design and costuming, and stunning cinematography.||Details|

|Portlandia: Season 1||2011||135 mins||Comedy||The 6-part IFC Original short-based comedy series PORTLANDIA, created, written by and starring Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein (vocalist/guitarist, WILD FLAG, Sleater-Kinney), premieres on IFC Friday, January 21, 2011 at 10:30 PM ET/PT. Each episode's character-based shorts draw viewers into "Portlandia," the creators' dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon. "I love Portlandia. It really represents so much of what I love culturally, musically and in so many other ways," said Fred Armisen. "This started as just a fun summer activity for Carrie and me. We'd be hanging out in Portland and shooting whatever made us laugh, and that evolved into Portlandia." PORTLANDIA's inhabitants include but are not limited to: the owners of a feminist book store; a militant bike messenger; an artsy couple who attach cut-outs of birds to everything ("put a bird on it!"); an organic farmer who turns out to be a cult leader; an adult hide and seek league; and a punk rock couple negotiating a "safe word" to help govern their love life. The first episode depicts Armisen and Brownstein meeting with the Mayor of Portland (Kyle MacLachlan) who solicits the duo to write a new theme song for the city. This segment features a cameo from the real mayor of Portland (Sam Adams) playing the assistant to MacLachlan's "mayor." Much of the series' original music is written and performed by Armisen and Brownstein. An assortment of guest stars inhabit PORTLANDIA, including Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Sex & The City), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Selma Blair (Legally Blonde, Hellboy), Heather Graham (The Hangover), Edie McClurg (Ferris Bueller's Day Off), Kumail Nanjiani (Michael & Michael Have Issues), Jason Sudeikis (SNL, The Cleveland Show), and Gus Van Sant (Milk). Singer/songwriter Aimee Mann also guest stars, alongside James Mercer (The Shins), and local Portland musicians Jenny Conlee and Colin Meloy (The Decemberists) and Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney). Brownstein and Armisen spent years observing the joyous eccentricities of Portland, Oregon (when Fred was on hiatus from SNL), which spawned their "Thunderant" project, a compilation of online videos that combined their unique music styles and comedic sensibilities. Their artistic collaboration garnered an online cult following, as their "Thunderant" characters resonated with a young audience celebrating individuality, free spirit and weirdness.||Details|
|Predators||2010||106 mins||Action; Adventure; Horror||Produced by Roger Rodriguez and directed by Nimrod Antal who did films like Kontroll, Vacancy and Armoured, Predators clearly met its objectives it set out to achieve without flashy fanfare, with Antal providing assured direction in the many set action pieces that don't rely on the hair-tearing quick MTV-styled cuts so just to let you know everything's kinetic and hyper. Some scenes will also get your eyebrows raised at how gory and violent this installment can get, with in-your-face dismemberment, and even one which shows how cruelly wicked the Predator can be with a move that closely resembles a "finish him" from Mortal Kombat.
The story is kept simple with one primary plot, and that is to witness how a band of para- military personnel get to outwit and outlast the Predators as they learn that they're prey and game for the alien beings, which are armed to the teeth in advanced weaponry, armour and various sensors like infra-red, with electromagnetic pulses ready to discharge and wreck havoc on human rifles. It's not a fair fight, especially when it comes to the famed cloaking camouflage that gives the Predators an advantage.

Meg Ryan plays Alice and Russell Crowe is Terry Thorne, the hostage retrieval expert who becomes Alice's only hope in navigating a high-stakes game where terrorists value money over life, in this suspense-packed film named one of the year's 10-best films by Time. Taylor Hackford directs, steadily tightening the emotional vise as Terry and Alice try to smoke out the perpetrators and rescue Alice's husband (David Morse)... and as both confront the gnawing awareness that they're attracted to each other. Taut, thought-provoking and terrific, Proof Of Life is gripping proof that the romantic thriller is forcefully alive.
|Public Enemies||2009||143 mins||Crime||John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) stages a clever prison-break to free his crew of fellow bank-robbers and starts to break into a few more banks. At the same time, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) declares America's first way on crime, and appoints super-agent Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) as the man responsible for tracking down Dillinger. Dillinger gets captured but breaks out of his Indiana prison in a very daring fashion, frustrating Purvis and the FBI.||Details|
|Pulp Fiction||1994||154 mins||Action; Crime; Thriller||"Pulp Fiction" is actually composed of several "pulp fictions," lurid, overlapping stories that take place in Los Angeles. In one story, Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) must recover an enigmatic briefcase belonging to their mobster boss, Marcellus Wallace (Ving Rhames), from a group of unfortunate slackers. After they've done so, an unfortunate accident forces them to enlist the clean-up and disposal services of Jules' unwilling friend Jimmy (Quentin Tarantino) and the Wolf (Harvey Keitel). Like many of the stories in "Pulp Fiction," this is as much about the characters' conversations as it is about plot: here, this means cheeseburgers and foot massages. Another story concerns Vincent Vega, whom Marcellus has asked to entertain his wife, Mia (Uma Thurman) while he's out of town. They have a great time, but the evening takes a turn for the worst when Mia overdoses on heroin she finds in Vincent's jacket, and he has to save her life so his boss won't take his. In another story, a boxer, Butch (Bruce Willis), whom Marcellus has paid to fix a fight double crosses the mobster, and must escape L. A. However, first he must reclaim a wrist watch belonging to his dead father and inadvertently left behind by his girlfriend. His attempt to do so leads to confrontations with Vincent Vega, Marcellus Wallace, and a gang of pawnshop hillbillies. The final story takes place after Vincent and Jules leave the Wolf. At a diner, Jules confesses that he's recently decided to give up all mobster activities: instead, he'll walk the earth. He also explains why he doesn't eat bacon. Unfortunately, Jules faces a final test, as two criminal lovebirds, Pumpkin and Honey Bunny (Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer) attempt to rob the diner, and he must convince them not to take Marcellus' briefcase without having to kill them.||Details|
|Quantum Of Solace||2008||106 mins||Action; Adventure; Thriller||A great sequel to the first film, agent James Bond (Daniel Craig) begins a very personal vendetta. It seems that his previous undertaking has profoundly affected his character. He had set a mission to himself to uncover whatever it is that lead to his troublesome situation. This is against the organizations that lead the woman that he loved to betray her. Bond journeys across the world following after threads which leads to a coldblooded businessman (Mathieu Amalric). This businessman seems to hide under a disguise of being an environmentalist which has an eerie plot to rule and terrorize with using the world's water supply. You may need to have watched the first film in order to fully appreciate the story but ultimately this is a film to watch and look out for.||Details|
|Queen - A Night At The Opera (Dvd Cd)||1974||70 mins||Music||A landmark release, this special edition features both the new CD and DVD formats of the album completely restored from original analogue tapes and digitally re-mastered by Bob Ludwig, in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. As well as the original 1975 videos for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'You're My Best Friend', the DVD also contains brand new video footage for the other 10 tracks, along with archive audio commentary from all four members of Queen, including the late Freddie Mercury.
As Queen guitarist Brian May explains in the new liner notes: "Months of craftsmanship by true perfectionists have gone into wringing every ounce out of the original master recordings and into this hitherto unequalled 'high definition' domain. Never has the recording been so carefully balanced, so carefully cleansed of clicks and pops from so many sources, some of which were even present on the original mix master tapes. In the stereo sound on this DVD, every nuance of the analogue character of these human-made mixes is more faithfully reproduced here than ever before. In addition, for the surround track, a whole set of 5.1 mixes has been created from microscopically accurate digital sound files, mirroring the original multitrack tapes. For the first time this includes a new surround mix of the final track 'God Save the Queen', and some improvements to the surround mixes previously issued to a small audience on the DTS DVD-Audio release."
May continues: "This DVD also features for the first time visuals for every track on the album some, like the original 'Bohemian Rhapsody' video, carefully digitally restored and re-graded, and some, like the stunning new video for 'Good Company', created especially for this release. There are also some special commentaries, ancient and modern, from all four Queen members on facets of the tracks, and... yes, this is quite simply the best 'Night At The Opera' ever produced. I doubt if it can ever be bettered!"

Richard Jeni's view of television comercials, relationships and daily life will require the viewer to figure out a way to lift themselves up off of the floor from laughing so much. The best Richard Jeni, as his later work did not have the same insanity and spontinaity of this work.||Details|

Facing a tough winter, he tries to secure the future of his Clan by borrowing money from the Marquis of Montrose (John Hurt). His plan for the money was to purchase cattle, and herd it to the market. Instead, the money gets stolen. This forces Rob Roy to live a Robin Hood like life, and fight for his survival. Honour and Bravery will only get him that far, and soon only love can fuel his cause.||Details|
|Robin Hood||2010||140 mins||Action; Adventure||Robin Hood (Russell Crowe) is an expert archer who was employed in the army for King Richards until the king's death. After that, Robin Hood travels to Nottingham in hopes of helping the town recover from the corruption it is currently experiencing, thanks to the Sheriff of Nottingham (Matthew Macfadyen). Once there, Robin Hood meets Maid Marion (Cate Blanchett), who he immediately falls for. Marion, however, is unsure about Robin Hood's motivations and intentions, and does not welcome his advances. With a desire to impress Marion, Robin Hood puts together a band of friends, who work to exact justice by robbing the upper class citizens around them.||Details|
|Robin Hood: Men In Tights||1993||104 mins||Comedy||'Robin Hood: Men in Tights' is a farcical tale about Robin Hood (Cary Elwes) on his journey back from the Crusades to England to find Sherlock Forest amiss. King Richard (Patrick Stewart) is still fighting in the Crusades while his evil brother, Prince John (Richard Lewis), and the occasionally dyslexic Sheriff of Rottingham (Roger Rees) are swindling money out of the poor and wreaking havoc on the town. Robin Hood vows to dethrone Prince John with the help of his friends, Ahchoo (Dave Chappelle), Little John (Eric Allan Kramer), Blinkin (Mark Blankfield) and Will Scarlet O’Hara (Matthew Porretta). On his quest, he also meets the fair Maid Marian (Amy Yasbeck) and steals her heart, but the Sheriff will stop at nothing to make her his wife. The scenes are tied together using rapping merry men and long-running jokes, which make the film all the more hilarious. Despite the story being told over and over, the tale of Robin Hood is made refreshing through the delightful (although sometimes risqué) humor of Mel Brooks and the colorful cast.||Details|
|Robin Williams - An Evening With Robin Williams||1982||92 mins||Comedy||Stand-up comic Robin Williams performs his act in San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. Although he does do some of his more well known routines, much of the footage is devoted to Williams' frenetic, completely off the wall improvisation.
An extremely enjoyable fast-paced barrage of Robin Williams live in San Francisco. He is amazing to watch as he bounces of audience members and his own manic genius. Highly recommended for those who have only seen Robin in the movies. It is impossible not to laugh out loud, as funny as Eddie Murphy's Delirious.
|Robin Williams - Inside The Actors Studio||2001||119 mins||Documentary||I really enjoyed this show - Robin certainly was all over and dominative. Robin hardly answer any question seriously, but there are serious tones under his comic answers - you can guess what is true and what is just pure comic imagination. You will also enjoy the wonderful imitations he makes, and the run through Robin's movie career - from Popeye, through Fisher King, The Story of Will Haunting to Death to Smotchie, which was the latest film he was working on, by the time this show was filmed. I have noticed that Robin uses some of the jokes all over again - some of the jokes he told here were told in his Live in Broadway show. Still, this is one of the best shows for people who want to get to know their favorite actor's life.||Details|
|Robin Williams - Live At The Met||1986||72 mins||Comedy||Robin Williams is flat-out insane on stage, and "A Night ..." does a fairly good job of catching his insanity. From riffs on Tom Landry directing "Swan Lake" ("take Giselle, throw her downfield ten, fifteen yards!") to getting busted with cocaine ("I'm okay, I'm okay, red, blue, red, blue--OH, ...) to fatherhood ("I expected three nomads to come into the delivery room--'we saw a star, dude?'"), only the most humor-resistant won't crack up. The only disappointment is that this wasn't a double CD, since Robin did about 2.5 hours at our show, a lot of which was even funnier than what appears here! Believe it or not, Robin only made three comedy albums--his first two, "Reality ... what a concept" and "Throbbing Python of Love" are long out of print. "Reality" is his funniest, but "A Night ..." isn't far behind. Yeah, he's now an Oscar-winning actor, but "A Night ..." reminds us that Robin Williams wasn't always so earnest ...||Details|
|Robin Williams - Live On Broadway||2002||99 mins||Comedy||Robin Williams is back in an all new comedy extravaganza. Performing live in front of large audiences is what really makes Robin shine as a comedian. From talking about his experiences with drugs to observational humor, Robin makes the crowd laugh with vigor and enthusiasm. This almost all-out purely comedic performance leaves little room for stale air and boring gaps between most comedians' sets. Robin Williams is truly one of the most original and greatest of all time, and it shows in this film. Be warned though, although Robin can spit funny like no other, he can also spit profanity as well! Definitely not a children's movie, only the serious William's fans should take part.||Details|
|Robin Williams - Weapons Of Self Destruction||2009||129 mins||Comedy; Documentary||In this comedy special taped on November 20th, 2009 at DAR Constitution Hall, his first solo special on the network in seven years, Williams covers such topics global warming, sex and politics, the state of health care in the country (suggesting a cash for clunkers program for elderly relatives, among other things), drugs - recreational and otherwise - and more personal topics, including his recent heart surgery.||Details|

Luckily, instead of losing the package, she encounters petty mercenary Jack T. Colton, (Michael Douglas) who agrees to guide her, but for a price. Wilder and Colton butt heads over the best way to save Wilder's sister, but Colton eventually persuades her that by using the package to find the treasure it leads to, they will have a better bargaining chip to save her sister. Wilder is still not sure she can trust the handsome stranger working his way into her heart, but she decides to see it through to the end.||Details|

Tired of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local San Juan newspaper run by the downtrodden editor Lotterman. Adopting the rum-soaked lifestyle of the late ‘50s version of Hemingway’s “The Lost Generation,” Paul soon becomes entangled with a very attractive American woman, Chenaults and her fiancée Sanderson, a businessman involved in shady property development deals. It is within this world that Kemp ultimately discovers his true voice as a writer and integrity as a man.||Details|

|Scooby-Doo And The Samurai Sword||2009||74 mins||Animation; Comedy; Family||The Good:
* My son (4 years old) liked it (hence 5 stars) * It was visually well done * It has ninjas, samurai, sword fighting, etc * It doesn't have Scrappy Doo (that HAS to be worth 3 stars alone!) * Frank Welker does a good job as Fred and Scooby Doo. Nobody can replace Don Messick as Scooby, but Don does about as well as anyone could.
* The music in this movie is, somehow, WORSE than the incredibly bad chase songs that they introduced in the 2nd season the original series. (Prime example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nd37AkFsVI) * The plot is all over the place, but that's almost in keeping with the original series * Joe Sichta (writer/producer) is apparently infatuated with technology that he felt the need to have it DOMINATE a story about a Samurai legend. In case you think that I'm exaggerating, he has Velma build an EMP generator powered by a bicycle to defeat a band of ninja robots. 'Nuf said! * Daphne is now a martial arts master (wha' wha' what!?) * Casey Kasem sounds to old and tired that he is barely recognizable. Only when you hear that trademark Shaggy laugh does he remind you of the good old days.

|Shakes The Clown||1992||87 mins||Comedy||Shakes plods about his duties as party clown, and uses all of his free time getting seriously drunk. Binky, another clown, wins the spot on a local kiddie show, which depresses Shakes even more, and his boss threatens him with unemployment if he can't get his act under control. When someone murders Shakes' boss and makes it look like Shakes did it, he goes undercover, posing as a hated mime, and tries to find information that will clear his name.
The movie poster when I saw "Shakes" in the theatre touted it as the "Citizen Kane of Alcoholic Clown Movies". This is one strange fantasy where clowns hang out in their own bars watching clown shows on TV while tossing back shots. The bars are segregated by clown type, with bars for rodeo clowns and bars for party clowns with no mixing tolerated. Robin Williams' bit part as a mime instructor is some of his best work every, enhanced (as all Robins work should be) by it's brevity. Great work, Bobcat! (The kids in the sprinkler scene is great, a lovingly filmed, uncharacteristicly joyful moment in this very, very dark comedy.) Rumor has it that clown groups picketed theatres when this movie was released, claiming that it was defamatory to clowns.
|Sherlock Holmes||2009||128 mins||Action; Adventure; Crime||Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) seems more than distracted at the news that his long-time companion Dr. John Watson (Jude Law) wants to marry a woman, which has sent Holmes into a funk more than any addiction to cocaine.

|Star Wars: The Making Of A Trilogy||2004||151 mins||Documentary||Empire of Dreams: The Story of the Star Wars Trilogy, a 150-minute documentary incorporating not only the usual making-of nuts and bolts but also the political workings of the movie studios and the difficulties Lucas had getting his vision to the screen (for example, after resigning from the Directors' Guild, he lost his first choice for director of Jedi: Steven Spielberg). It's a little adulatory, but it has plenty to interest any fan. The three substantial featurettes are "The Characters of Star Wars" (19 min.), which discusses the development of the characters we all know and love, "The Birth of the Lightsaber" (15 min.), about the creation and evolution of a Jedi's ultimate weapon, and "The Force Is with Them: The Legacy of Star Wars" (15 min.), in which filmmakers such as Peter Jackson, Ridley Scott, and James Cameron talk about how they and the industry were affected by the films and Lucas's technological developments in visual effects, sound, and computer animation.||Details|

|The Stepford Wives (1975)||1975||115 mins||Drama; Horror; Mystery; Thriller||Joanna Eberhart (Katherine Ross) and her husband Walter (Peter Masterson) move to the town of Stepford, Connecticut. Joanna immediately begins to find it strange that all the women in the neighborhood behave like stereotypical housewives. They only care about cleaning and making their husbands happy. Joanna does meet two other women who just moved to the area who behave normally, Bobbie (Paula Prentiss) and Charmaine (Tina Louise). However, both Bobbie and Charmaine suddenly begin acting like all the other women in the neighborhood, leading Joanna to believe that there is something dangerous going on.||Details|

|Stevie Nicks: Live At Red Rocks||1995||60 mins||Documentary; Music||Set against the raw majesty of Colorado's Red Rocks amphitheatre, this 1987, post-Fleetwood Mac concert by Stevie Nicks is pure rock & roll cabaret. Backed by the lapidary if impersonal arrangements of her sizable band, including ubiquitous session man Waddy Wachtel (Jackson Browne, Keith Richards) on guitar, Rick Marotta on drums, and mood-setter Jai Winding at keyboards, Nicks's dusky, chanteuse vocals bear down hard on this program's nine selections. Hard, but not always interestingly. Sorely missing is the rare alchemy of a real band like Mac, in which Nicks's irresistible status as grandiloquent white witch and heel- stomping rocker enlivens, and is enlivened by, the reciprocal quirks of fellow members. In this star-focused setting, Nicks doesn't get to dance freely on the ledges of Lindsey Buckingham's maniacal palaces. Her responsibility is to anchor a more predictable enterprise, and while that certainly doesn't dull Nicks's commitment, it obscures her artistry and makes her show look like a self-tribute at a supper club. Highlights include a driving cover of pal Tom Petty's "I Need to Know," a bluesy "Talk to Me," and a touching "Has Anyone Ever Written Anything for You." A still photograph of Nicks and Mick Fleetwood (who adds percussion at a couple of points) that kind of dissolves in and out during "Beauty and the Beast" is embarrassing, but makes it perfectly clear what that particular tune is about. Peter Frampton shows up for an encore of "Edge of Seventeen," as do a bunch of white-winged doves someone releases from the audience, one of which finds refuge in Nicks's palm and decides to stay awhile. Ahh, rock's very own Snow White.||Details|
|Stray Cats||2004||129 mins||Music||At long last, the Stray Cats live album we've all been waiting for! "Rumble in Brixton" is the Stray Cats first 'offical' live album. It's been a long and confusing wait, especially since there are more than a dozen Cats' live albums that have appeared in stores over the past decade...
The Cats haven't lost a thing despite their 12 year lay-off! Slim Jim jams on the drums, while Lee Rocker whales on his bull bass, and Brian -- well, his guitar playing is as sharp as a knife on this new release! Setzer is the master of Rockabilly guitar -- hell, any guitar. In Japan, if he was a citizen, they'd designate him a Living Treasure!
How does Rumble in Brixton measure up to past Stray Cats live performances and CDS? Well, before writing this review, I spent over a week listening to every live CD and video of the Cats I have and can authoritatively state that "Rumble in Brixton" is their Best Live Release, ever. Period.

|Sudden Impact||1983||117 mins||Action; Adventure; Crime; Thriller||Dirty Harry Is At It Again
Sensitive to outcries of police brutality, the superiors of San Francisco Detective Harry Callahan have sent him on an out-of-town assignment until things cool down. But wherever Harry goes, things just get hotter.
Clint Eastwood hits the mark again in Sudden Impact. Callahan's older, dirtier and the world hasn't gotten better. Which means this fourth Dirty Harry movie (which Eastwood also directs) is explosively exciting, as Callahan tracks a traumatized rape victim (Sondra Locke) coldly gunning down her bygone attackers. Through the five Callahan films, the lawman always struck a powerful chord. But Sudden Impact is particularly potent, fueled by the line that became a national catchphrase: "Go ahead. Make my day."

|Supertramp: The Story So Far||1990||104 mins||Music||Supertramp reigned supreme in the late 1970s, and the 1990 documentary Supertramp: The Story So Far succinctly chronicles the band's meteoric ascendance. The title anticipates a reunion between co-composers Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson (the latter went solo in '84), but that reunion never occurred despite Davies's preservation of the band, including a European tour at the time of this DVD's release in 2002. Bookended by a summary of Supertramp's rise and decline over a 15-year history, the disc comprises songs (mostly from Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America) performed in Toronto and Munich in 1983. Choppy editing and a lackluster sound mix don't prevent these concert clips from capturing the group's excellence in large arenas, and completists will appreciate five videos from the post-Hodgson era, especially the still-impressive "I'm Begging You," directed by Polish video innovator Zbigniew Rybczynski. Definitely worth a look for Supertramp loyalists.||Details|
|Surf Crazy||1959||71 mins||Sports||Bruce Brown is THE surfing movie guy, from the late 50's through the 60's and even into the 90's. This early entry is very enjoyable and highly recommended. The boys start out in the "smaller" surf of California and Mexico, and in the second half step up to Sunset Beach and other North Shore (Hawaii) locales, finishing with the bone-crushing waves of Waimea Bay. Humorous interludes are as always interspersed with great action shots. Perhaps a tad less polished than later efforts, but the blueprint for classics like The Endless Summer is clearly evident.||Details|

|The Three Stooges - Volume 3, Disk 1||2008||396 mins||Comedy; Short||The Three Stooges--political satirists? Laugh if you will, but as demonstrated by the shorts "You Nazty Spy" and "I'll Never Heil Again"--both of which are featured on this two-disc, digitally remastered set--the boys were the first act in Hollywood to bring attention to the Nazi threat in the days prior to America's involvement in World War II. "Nazty," which was released in 1940 some nine months before Chaplin's The Great Dictator, and 1941's "Heil," have Moe donning the greasepaint mustache to play Moe Hailstone, a dull-witted wallpaper hanger who runs amok as the dictator of Moronica along with his sidekicks Larry (the Goebbels stand-in) and Curly (Mussolini, natch). If the hijinks aren't exactly drawing room humor, one must still marvel at the foresight of the team and director Jules White for conceiving the idea, and by the sheer ballsiness of the Howard brothers and Fine--all Jews--taking the air out of the most insidious anti-Semitic figure of the period. One might also view 1940's "Boobs in Arms," with the boys accidentally joining the Army, as another riff on the absurdity of the slowly mounting war. Of course, the Stooges were better known for their wild slapstick comedy, and Volume 3 of this long-overdue collection presents some of the funniest shorts in their lengthy careers. Chief among these is "What's the Matador," which pits the boys' bullfighting routine against some real live beef, and the delirious "Sock-A-Bye Baby," with the Stooges attempting to care for an abandoned child. Elsewhere, the two main themes of the shorts--the Stooges as agents of fair play, as seen in "Nutty But Nice" (Curly finds a kidnapped man by yodeling) and "So Long Mr. Chumps" (the boys free an unjustly jailed man)--or menaces to society, as shown by the devastation wreaked at a dinner party in "An Ache in Every Stake," is in full effect. As with the two previous volumes, the shorts featured here (eight of which have never been available on DVD) are presented in chronological order and pristine condition, which soitenly makes up for decades of neglect from previous fly-by-night Stooge releases.||Details|

|The Three Stooges||2010||2478 mins||Comedy; Short||The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy act of the early to mid–20th century best known for their numerous short subject films. Their hallmark was physical farce. This compilation contains all 190 short films made by the various Stooges. There are additional films, specials and colorized shorts. There are even two 3d attempts from 1953. Yuk, Yuk, Yuk.
In films, the Stooges were commonly known by their first names: "Moe, Larry, and Curly" and "Moe, Larry, and Shemp," among other lineups. The film trio was originally composed of Moe Howard, brother Curly Howard and longtime friend Larry Fine. Curly was later replaced by brother Shemp Howard, when Curly suffered a debilitating stroke in 1946. After Shemp's death in 1955, he was replaced by bald-headed comedian Joe Besser, after the use of stuntman Joe Palma to record several "Shemp" shorts after his death. Eventually Joe "Curly-Joe" DeRita (born Joseph Wardell) would replace him. Larry suffered a serious stroke in 1970, and was unable to continue performing. Emil Sitka, a longtime actor in Stooge comedies, was contracted to replace Larry, but no film was ever made with him in the role, although publicity photographs exist of him with his hair combed similarly to Larry's, posing with Moe and Curly-Joe (see below). However, Larry's paralyzing stroke in 1970 effectively marked the end of the act. He died in January 1975. Moe died of cancer a few months later.

Seems the bad bro likes to toy with enemy armies by projecting films of Adolf Hitler speeches during attacks. Nice!

|Yes: Live At Montreux 2003||2007||137 mins||Music||Yes is one of the most innovative and successful rock bands of all time with a career that now spans five decades. In 2003 the band made their first appearance at the Montreux Festival, despite having a long association with the town itself (they recorded there frequently in the seventies). It was a triumphant night and is regarded by both the band members and fans as probably the finest Yes gig ever to be filmed. It has been much in demand and is now finally cleared for release.
|Yes: Symphonic Live In Amsterdam||2002||194 mins||Music; Musical||Yes never needed a symphony to prove their sonic prowess. Even without keyboardist Rick Wakeman (replaced here by the skillful Tom Brislin), the veteran members (vocalist Jon Anderson, bassist Chris Squire, drummer Alan White, and guitarist Steve Howe) are masters of their prog-rock domain. And yet the addition of the young, photogenic European Festival Orchestra (for this Amsterdam performance in November 2001) offers a glorious expansion of the Yes sound, enhanced and fully integrated to create the Yes equivalent of Phil Spector's famous wall of sound. Three songs are included from 2001's Magnification, but it's the classics--including a spectacular, epic rendition of Relayer's "Gates of Delirium"--that make this the best of several Yes DVDs on the market. A behind-the-scenes documentary is perfunctory, and the video of "Don't Go" (from Magnification) seems redundant, but the option to view alternate visuals is welcome, and the excellent DTS mix is best enjoyed loud.||Details|

|Young Frankenstein||1974||106 mins||Comedy; Horror||"Young Frankenstein" is a tongue-in-cheek comedy about the heir to the original Dr. Frankenstein.

Once there, he finds Igor and a sultry mistress and is compelled to complete his grandfather's work. What then commences is a daring and hilarious attempt to find all the necessary parts to reanimate a corpse, without alerting the local police and townspeople. The creature is successfully reanimated, and as the young Frankenstein takes him to public displays (including having the creature dance to "puttin' on the Ritz") the creature begins to get into misadventures of his own. Completely misunderstood tragedies cause the townfolk to turn on both creator and creature leaving their lives hanging in the balance.||Details|
