    Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is a rogue pirate. He was exiled from his crew and left on an island. Jack managed to escape the island and is now looking for revenge and wants his ship back.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Har!The best pirate movie since `The Crimson Pirate'.
    Let's face it, has there been a more fun and memorable pirate movie since 1952 when Burt Lancaster and his silent sidekick Ojo swashbuckled bad guys, slid down awnings, and saved the girl?Go ahead, search your brain.

    This is an awesome movie and an awesome 2-DVD set from Disney/Pixar Home Entertainment!!! Includes the classic movie in BOTH Widescreen and Full Frame formats, so everyones happy!!! Also includes a "tankfull" of extras to "dive" into!!! This is absolute classic animation!!! Fun for the whole family!!! Two thumbs up!!! Five stars!!! A+

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finding Nemo is a great "catch" for the whole family
    Pixar Studios have done it again. I have to say that these guys are totally good in computer animation, as well as in storytelling. Rarely do those qualities come together but here they are, delivering unto the audience once again something that one can only be drowned with wonder. Such is the marvel of Finding Nemo.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A really great movie!!!
    I really loved this movie. I have watched it over and over again. I have never gotten sick of it. It makes me laugh and cry all in the same DVD. This movie is a must for all kids and adult kids too. Ellen's role is just great!!! It fits her to a tee. ... Read more

    Throughout his long, wandering, often distinguished career Francis Ford Coppola has made many films that are good and fine, many more that are flawed but undeniably interesting, and a handful of duds that are worth viewing if only because his personality is so flagrantly absent. Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars I refuse the offer
    What we have here is, basically, two, because who actually has seen or even likes the third, of the most overblown, overhyped and unjustifiably overrated American films of all time.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Dark & Delightful
    I enjoyed watching these movies so much, I wish I had bought the DVDs a long time ago. Its amazing to see how the Part-III was made 18 years after part-I was made and everything looks so continuous if you watch them together. There has been much speculation on how the events in The Godfather novel written by Mario Puzo, the book the film is based on, could be an exposé of true facts. Many believe that the character of Johnny Fontane , for instance, was based on Frank Sinatra's real life, and many of the other characters were modeled after real people. I won't go into that: frankly, I have no idea whether these voices are reliable, although the Frank Sinatra reference seems obviously quite believable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really Wanted This!
    We have enjoyed the Godfather saga ever since it first came out in the 1970s. A young Al Pacino made his mark in this movie and we think that it was one of the roles that enabled to go as far as he has. Also, as a part of our family is from New Jersey, the period scenes of Ellis Island and New York City lets us remember what it was like growing up in that time and lets our family's new generation learn about it too. We have had the collection on VHS for some time, but the opportunity to have it on DVD was too good to pass up. The price was excellent as well, considering that it's all the movies plus the fourth DVD with the behind the scenes stuff.

    This gorgeous adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's story is well worth watching with the whole family. Produced for Canadian television, it's one of those rare productions that actually sticks to the book and even enhances it through first-rate performances and an excellent script. Set on bucolic Prince Edward Island in the late 19th century, Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this movie today as much as I loved it when I was 10....
    I saw this movie for the first time when I was something like 10 years old, and immediately fell in love with Anne Shirley. I have now read everything by L.M. Montgomery that I can get my hands on, and am as big a fan as ever. This movie is a beautiful version of a beautiful book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Way things should be
    "Anne of Green Gables" shows how a combination of love, honesty, hard work, tolerance and integrity is the perfect mix for bringing out the best from the potential in anyone, even in a non-traditional family. It's an incredibly refreshing break from today's society, where lying and manipulation have become almost a norm in much of the world we know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic
    All the great reviews written previously say it all - Anne of Green Gables the movie is a timeless classic of the classic novel. I've been watching this movie since I've been a child, and I still watch it as an adult. A movie like this doesn't need "special features" for it to be attractive as a DVD(Although the commentary is great!). Just the fact that no matter how long I keep this and how often I watch this movie, it won't change like VHS does. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Could well be the best DVD on the market
    Given that the movie is wonderful, perhaps the last of the great Hollywood musicals and a charmer for all generations, this DVD is still remarkably wonderful. Disney has done a clean-up job on the film that makes it shine. The audio is rich and wonderful, including the all-important ORIGINAL stereo soundtrack (feh to multi-channel remixes!). The special features even manage to elucidate the process of filmmaking in manner intriguing to both the cineaste parent and Mary-mad children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars thank you, Julie and Dick (and Walt, of course)!
    I think I like this movie more now than when I was a kid! And the extra features on this 2-DVD set are absolutely wonderful. Great interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, one of the Sherman brothers (songwriter), and the girl who played Jane that really show how special the movie-making process was, which then translated to joy on the screen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful story and lovely music
    Mary Poppins must be one of the loveliest filming produced by Disney studios. This musical movie is extremely well produced and has outstanding actor work. The scenes are of high quality despite the whole story was filmed indoors. Even the little part of London was reproduced in Disney studio. The music from Sherman brothers is world famous and well known. When you hear the first tunes, you might say: Hey I've heard that somewhere! Having this DVD on your shelf would please both you and your younger fellows. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Skywalking....
    Oh, Anakin, Anakin...How I love thee, let me count the ways.....
    5-0 out of 5 stars Will people ever stop complaining? As Vader would now say..."NOOOoooooOOOOoooo".
    Let's get something straight- I am a Star Wars geek. For a few years, I practically lived for the series. When Episode I came around, my heart broke, and I became a more casual fan, but with tons of knowledge that the typical sane person shouldn't know about the characters and worlds. Like millions of others, Episodes I and II disappointed me beyond anything. George Lucas should've let someone else do the writing, and could've used a tad less CG in favor of real things. In fact, in my own little world, I like to believe that there were never prequels to Episodes IV, V and VI. Episode III here was supposed to be THE Star Wars to end all Star Warses (forgive that ridiculous just-made-up-word there). I saw it in theaters, and loved it. It was what Episodes I and II should've been. But upon a second viewing, not so much. Originally, I gave Episode III 4.5 stars. Now, it's more like just barely 3. That's not to say that casual fans won't enjoy it- they'll probably get more out of this one than the past two. I think a lot of it has to do with the hype of it being the final movie being gone now. The saga is complete. Everything's all here to be watched in full. And just as the original trilogy, there are some parts that you notice not being as great as they were that first time you saw them.
    1-0 out of 5 stars A failure in narrative, just like the rest of the prequel trilogy.
    Well, here we are, the big one, the one that was supposed to blow them all away, the one that was supposed to be the meat and potatoes of the Star Wars prequel trilogy, the big downfall that turned Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen) into Darth Vader. The final result is a bit... underwhelming.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Star Wars, Episode 1, Phantom Menace.Review by: Adam Platts
    Star Wars Episode I, The Phantom Menace, easily qualifies as one of the best science fiction movies of recent years.While I would give each movie in the original trilogy 5 stars, I could only give this one 4 stars because of its "moments" of bad acting and weak story line.Imagine how great this movie would have been if it had been combined with Episode 2, saving only the best from each, and trimming away the dull parts.Ideally we would have seen Anakin quickly growing up in one movie, being trained in the ways of the Jedi.Instead we got stuck with a little kid throughout the whole movie, and worse - Jar Jar Binks.Overall, though, I'm just glad that the Star Wars movies returned to the big screen.
    4-0 out of 5 stars episode I : The Phantom Menace
    I think people are being way too hard on this film. The main reason people don'tlike it is because they were expecting Lucas to just remake the original trilogy. What people do not understand is that this is an entirely differnt galaxy that we are in. The entire galaxy has been changed as e enter episode IV. People don't understand that it's a differnt age.

    Editorial Review

    The Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Best Director Robert Zemeckis, and Best Actor Tom Hanks, this unlikely story of a slow-witted but good-hearted man somehow at the center of the pivotal events of the 20th century is a funny and heartwarming epic. Hanks plays the title character, a shy Southern boy in love with his childhood best friend (Robin Wright) who finds that his ability to run fast takes him places. As an All-Star football player he meets John F. Kennedy; as a soldier in Vietnam he's a war hero; and as a world champion Ping-Pong player he's hailed by Richard Nixon. Becoming a successful shrimp-boat captain, he still yearns for the love of his life, who takes a quite different and much sadder path in life. The visual effects incorporating Hanks into existing newsreel footage is both funny and impressive, but the heart of the film lies in its sweet love story and in the triumphant performance of Hanks as an unassuming soul who savors the most from his life and times.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Sorry Tom......
    I'm giving this movie two stars because of the supporting actors, and, the book from which the movie is taken.I believe those are what the rest of the reviews are truely applauding without realizing it.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Deja Vu All Over Again
    The fuss over Forrest Gump still amazes me. This movie basically rips off better movies in almost every scene. Still somehow it managed to win Best Picture over Pulp Fiction And The Shawshank Redemption in 1994. Out of all of the movies that were released 1n 94 this one wouldnt even make my top 20. Nobodys Fool, Quiz Show, The Lion King, and the list goes on. The only reason that I would give it props is for(at the time) was the special effects, which now are dated. After Gump Zemekis directed a episode of Tales From The Crypt where he used the same Technology and was easiest the worst episode of that year. I used to be a HUGE Zemekis fan. Used Cars, Romancing the Stone, Back to the Furture movies and Death Becomes Her were I thought were strong movies. But arounf Back to the Future 2I thought Zemekis started to rely to much on special effects and it shows on this film. To the objective viewer re-watch this film and think about every scene and try to remember where you have seen that scene before. I guarantee you after you do that you will see this movie in a totally different light.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The "It's A Wonderful Life" of the 60's generation
    Forrest Gump is an absolutely brilliant film that captures the 60's and the early 70's in the same way that Frank Capra's wonderful film did for the WWII generation.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost as wonderful as the first!
    I love this movie almost as much as I love the first one! While not entirely true to the books, it does at least pull most of it stories from the books in one form or another. Whether or not the stories are pure L.M. Montgomery, this movie is true Anne. It's worth all five hours to get to the ending!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Endearing Sequel
    This is an impressive sequel and a very good looking follow-up to ANNE OF THE GREEN GABLES. It is great to see Megan Follows as Anne Shirley once again. Megan Follows is just perfect in this role. Anne Shirley is now a bit older, has become a teacher and is quite involved in a society away from her rural settings. This gradual progression of characters and story from this original is very welcome and enjoyable. It is very endearing in many ways as was the original

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous Musical
    "The Phantom of the Opera" may not be my new favorite movie, but it's certainly one of the most sensually appealing.It succeeds in being an appealing musical, romance, mystery, and period piece all at once.Everything in the movie is a treat for the eyes and the ears, from the rich period sets and costumes to the Andrew Lloyd Webber songs to the gorgeous cast members.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
    I love this movie! The scenes like the first one where it goes to color is beautiful. Of course, I'm very suprised about something: the fact that some adults don't even know why his hair changes when his mask is taken off!!(No offense to them). So, why does this happen? The black hair is a WIG!!! Look closely and you'll realize that before he goes out in that climatic scene, he checks his hair; correct me, WIG. When Christine takes off his mask, his hair literallycomes off as a WIG. I love the music, too, especially the phantom of the opera song (The phantom of the opera is there/inside my mind).Watch it!!!!! :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really not enough stars for this DVD
    Someone, quite recently, as well as long ago, said that the film version of the musical was dead. If memory serves, they said it died with "Hello Dolly" or some such work. Anyone who believes that will need to watch "Phantom: on DVD.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Interpretation of Irving's Tale
    Ahh - the perfect Halloween film!Better than many of the old classics. This is Tim Burton at his best.As a child, I loved the gothic tale of the Headless Horseman - and this rendition never fails to ring the bell.Johnny Depp is well cast as the somewhat nervous, eccentric, but always ernest Ichabod Crane.Christina Ricci is beautiful and Christopher Walken is perfect as the Horseman.While the film is gory - after all there are lots of heads being lopped off - it's not really scary.I wouldn't recommend it for children under the age of 12 however - especially those with overactive imaginations. The old animated Disney version is better suited for the little ones.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining... a real Halloween delight !
    "Sleepy Hollow" Has just the right amount of everything to make it quite a memorable movie. The atmosphere that Sleepy Hollow portrays makes this movie
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Spooky Flick for the Fall Season!
    Let me state right off that, although I respect Burton as a great filmmaker, I'm not a fan of his films; they usually strike me as eminent examples of style over substance (which, in a sense, isn't his fault since he's not usually the writer). Plus the films he usually picks to direct simply aren't my cup of java (for instance, I have no plans to catch "Edward Scissorhands" anytime soon). But who can deny his great visual talants? This guy knows how to make a film LOOK good, that's for sure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Film, But Not For Everyone!
    I thought "Sin City," was a great film. However, it is not for everyone. There is a lot of violence, gore, and scenes many will find sexist. If these are not the type of films you like, avoid watching the film. However, I thought the entire film was one hell of a weird viewing experience. I can understand some people not liking the film. [My wife for one]. But with all the different plots involved in the film, and the eerie and very strange atmosphere of 'Basin City' [where the surrealistic film takes place] I thought the film was highly original and worth the watch. A very good watch for that matter. There have been many reviews here, so I will skip the film' plot, however, there are a few things I would like to write.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Blood for blood and by the gallons
    Movie aside, this DVD set was great.There are two versions of this film to choose from on this DVD; the original, and a directors cut.I loved the new version with the added scenes (even though they aren't significant to the plot it's nice to be able to watch them).The additional bonus features are extensive, and Rodriguez's cooking class was also quite fun.
    4-0 out of 5 stars One dimension, or maybe two
    Rather than adapting the genre of cartoon to film, this movie adapts film to cartoon, as explained in the extra features part of the DVD. That's a helpful insight. What's best about the movie is the visual experience. The sparing use of color, the digital experimentation, the combination of human actors and cartoon backgrounds, the voice-overs, etc. All this is very interesting and seductive to watch -- and it distances the viewer from the appalling violence, making it much easier to take and much less genuinely threatening. I really don't think anyone will be inspired to take a gun to a mob from watching this film. It's ultimately a very sophisticated cartoon.

    Is this a movie about hocus-pocus black-magic? How about Voodoo superstition? Pagan beliefs perhaps?
    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the most complete movies I have ever seen...
    The best adaptation of a Stephen King novel to date. Hollywood allowed this film to develope the various characters unlike most King adaptations.. There is a smoothness of this film, and a sadness as it nears its inevitable end, which holds the attention and completely disregards the 3+ hour length. Any who have seen it, will always remember it. Myself, I try to see the uplifting side, the hope the final monologue touts, but every time I watch this film, I feel the horrible sadness created by people wronging others with malice and hate. Something that does not belong in this world, but something this movie embraces.

    5-0 out of 5 stars worth its flaws
    Damon and Affleck deserve all the credit they got for this script, as well as their acting.There are flaws, however, which we can overlook, but obviously I want to list them!That's the fun of this.The most glaring mistake is the guy (apparently a teamster, as if they need to get overpaid any more than they already are) cast as the judge.I've lived in Boston, and people with that accent, bordering on speech impediment, do not become judges.They become, well, teamsters and the like.Robin Williams is good, but this movie doesn't even need him.Also, Minnie Driver is fairly unattractive and has an irritating way of speaking.Stellan Skarsgaard is good as the professor, even though nobody with that eurotrash accent of his would be named "Jerry".How's that for a thirty second review?

    4-0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams shines
    I really enjoyed this movie and found it to be a very tender and wonderful film. Robin Williams and Matt Damon light up the screen. I really felt this was Williams break out role as a serious actor and he showed a lot of range (though he was also great in The World According to Garp early in his career). He totally broke away from the manic comedy routines that can exhaust you and become tiring. Ben Affleck was just poor and a piece of wood as usual but what are you going to do? I guess they were a package deal back then (he and Damon)Mini Driver was also very good. Also Stellan Skarsgard was good as Williams childhood schoolmate who made it good.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams is astonishing
    This film is astounding. Robin Williams' performance as a world-weary academic and therapist is one of the most brilliant portrayals ever committed to film. Matt Damon is unbelievably effective as a math genius born to poverty in South Boston who is attempting to cope with his gift and maintain a normal life. Great script and great direction. I would put this film on a list of the 50 greatest films of all time. You must see Good Will Hunting. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not the MOST disgusting movie
    Is it because I saw the uncorked version that I feel slimed -- or is it just because I am old? Maybe it's because looking at really a lot of naked breasts just isn't my idea of a great time at the movies. In any case, the lines that most moved me were the two or three times when one character gently upbraided another claiming youth for their hijinx: "We're just young guys having fun (or something like that)."The answer: "You're not that young" (and honestly it's not that fun -- most of us dread being guests at weddings).
    3-0 out of 5 stars It was O.K.
    The most surprising aspect of this film was that such a very average comedy could become such a huge box office hit. While the first hour had a few laughs, the second became bogged down in a sappy romance, and had me checking the "time remaining," on my DVD player. While it wasn't a bad movie, I saw a lot of wasted potential in it. The concept of wedding crashing is funny, I just wanted them to do more with it. For example, the main characters allude to attending a variety of ethnic weddings (Hindu, Chinese, etc.) but we aren't shown much. It would have worked better if they cut the romance a bit, and showed us more of the weddings. The extravagant lies one would have to tell and ensuing complications seem like they would be a rich source of comedy, but are never exploited. Also, Christopher Walken is a wonderful comedic actor (see him on Saturday Night Live as "The Continental" and the music producer for Blue Oyster Cult, to know what I mean), but his talents are wasted here in a humorless, straight role.

    4-0 out of 5 stars This movie isn't smart. It isn't great. But it's "fun."
    The opening sequence with Dwight Yokum and Rebecca De Mornay is one of the funniest in the film. The rest doesn't live quite up to it. The movie suffers from an improbability problem. I know from working weddings like some they went to, it's not easy to sneak into a wedding, especially high profile weddings with bouncers and giant men standing at the doors looking at your invite!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Crash should be required in universities.
    Crash is a transformative film. It's about how blind we are to our own predjudices. It's about living in a world where our lives and our assumptions about each other intersect, and yes, crash, and how we live and love and hurt and hate each other--and ourselves.
    5-0 out of 5 stars crash was definitely a great film
    The negative reviews about crash is mostly non-sense. Crash is one of the best films produced by Hollywood in the last 10 years. I just viewed it for the second time and the movie still felt very intense. The message is simple and clear. No one can judge another human being. Everyone has good and bad. Both qualities will be shown throughout one's life. And racism is so much more than color of our skin. The movie shows that even a mother can be a racist toward her own children. I thought the film dealt with that truth very well. If a person watches this film and learns nothing or feels nothing, that is pretty sad.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I like this movie because...
    This is a great movie and I like it because it's realistic.Not because of the storyline, but because of the diverse cast.There are too many movies and TV shows out there where everyone is Caucasian.That is not representative of America.Americans come in all shapes and sizes and colors.I know the entertainment industry has acknowledged the general lack of "minorities" in major roles, but they don't really seem to do anything about it.I guess that's because there's not a political will to do anything about it.It's just almost funny to watch a movie that takes place in a city like L.A., New York or Chicago where everyone is white.That's just not how things are.

    Editorial Review

    Martin Scorsese's 1978 capsule history of the Band is mixed with footage of the group's allegedly last performance (certainly their last performance as a quintet) in this particularly stylish concert film. Scorsese shoots the players and their sundry guests with the same flair and enthusiasm one can see in the later Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Great 1970's Music Moment
    When I saw The Last Waltz I knew it was for a moment in time which would never come back. The artists were so special and so good and now some are no longer with us. I loved Joanie Mitchell's number and the Band's many numbers as well as Van Morrison's number. Robbie Robertson was so good looking.

    3-0 out of 5 stars It only took six measures
    Six measures into the first tune, "Don't Do It," I knew they'd blown it with this release. As a fan of the movie for years, I wore out my videocassette copy, and grabbed the Special Edition DVD.

    Editorial Review

    Mel Brooks scored his first commercial hit with this raucous Western spoof starring the late Cleavon Little as the newly hired (and conspicuously black) sheriff of Rock Ridge. Sheriff Bart teams up with deputy Jim (Gene Wilder) to foil the railroad-building scheme of the nefarious Hedley Lamarr (Harvey Korman). The simple plot is just an excuse for a steady stream of gags, many of them unabashedly tasteless, that Brooks and his wacky cast pull off with side-splitting success. The humor is so juvenile and crude that you just have to surrender to it; highlights abound, from the lunkheaded Alex Karras as the ox-riding Mongo to Madeline Kahn's uproarious send-up of Marlene Dietrich as saloon songstress Lili Von Shtupp. Adding to the comedic excess is the infamous campfire scene involving a bunch of hungry cowboys, heaping servings of baked beans and, well, you get the idea.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Oh the camptown lady sing this song dooda dooda!
    so hilariously funny. bart (clevon little) plays one of the slaves and becomes the first black sherriff that offends the white town of rockridge and his first white friend jim (gene wilder) who is reffered to as the waco kid. No one would except the new sherriff and the bad guys would try to kill him buy sending mongo or lili von shtup. So funny that melbrooks should keep doing more and more funniest movies. another old movie of the late 70s but very good I give it 5 stars.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An important work of art
    (4.5/5 stars) This film is so good because we all know people who are racist or who harbor prejudices against an ethnic or religious group. Brooks lays all of this bare and then confronts this bigotry directly by making a black man and his Jewish partner the heroes of the movie. True, the Gentiles don't fair very well in the movie because it seems every one of them winds up being portrayed as racist, mindless or both. As a Gentile, this does not bother me because I believe the point Brooks was trying to make is that during the period in which this film takes place, the 19th century, the white majority largely viewed the non-white minority as second class. Certainly there were enlightened people who earnestly believed all races and classes should share the same privileges, but this was after the Civil War and long before the era of Civil Rights. Blacks were free, but were very far from being accepted in business or as part of white society as a whole. It is within this setting that Brooks devises an astute commentary on the topic of race relations. When the Governor (Brooks) makes Bart (Cleavon Little) sheriff (as part of a self-serving plan, incidentally), no one takes it seriously because the town sheriff is a person the townsfolk respect and upon whom they rely (or at least hoped) for safety. How will these whites come to terms with having a sheriff they do not respect, and whom they view as being naturally inferior and therefore incapable of protecting them? This is not one of those condescending, guilt-ridden movies that white people make wherein the black man with a heart of gold is redeemed at the end only because a sympathetic white character shows him some pity. (See: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Green Mile, etc.)No, in this movie, the black characters are seen as being clever, intelligent and talented enough to redeem themselves based on their own terms. Yes, there are racial epithets and stereotypes that are offensive and politically incorrect; however, these are used to illustrate the ignorance and intolerance of the offender rather than as a valid way of inciting the offended. Much of the humor is sophomoric and scatological, so one's appreciation of the film will likely be in direct proportion to one's proclivity for such humor. Listen for Frankie Laine singing the title song and watch for a cameo by Count Basie. The finale is rather weak and I wish Brooks would have ended it before it spilled over the set, which is why I stop short of giving it five stars. The anniversary DVD is presented in anamorphic widescreen and looks great.
