5-0 out of 5 stars Pittsburgh PA
DONT listen to that silly man " a viewer" He doesnt know a thing. You can watch this extrodinary film on DVD and reap the hearty rewards of laughter and happiness. Or you can watch a VHS and dial up the internet while you toast your snax on a fire. In other words....The dvd is far better then any old VHS. This DVD is the best. Just believe me. You will thank me later. And see Spamalot too.

4-0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air.
With all the deadly serious movies about the grail out there these days it's good to once again watch a movie that treats the subject with a sense of humor.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Newt?
One of my favorite comedies, and Monty Python's best and most irreverent movie is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The Monty Python troop made three films and had a television series that challenged the status quo by dealing with religion, class welfare, politics and dead parrots. There humor seems as fresh and rebellious today as when it was aired. Sometimes their humor was forced -- some scenes in The Meaning of Lif(e) ; however, Monty Python and the Holy Grail has the perfect mix of antitoletarism, irreverence and silly sots.

Editorial Review

Not an ideal choice for younger kids, this hip and violent animated feature from Disney was nevertheless a huge smash in theaters and on video, and it continues to enjoy life in an acclaimed Broadway production. The story finds a lion cub, son of a king, sent into exile after his father is sabotaged by a rivalrous uncle. The little hero finds his way into the "circle of life" with some new friends and eventually comes back to reclaim his proper place. Characters are very strong, vocal performances by the likes of Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, and Whoopi Goldberg are terrific, the jokes are aimed as much (if not more) at adults than kids, the animation is sometimes breathtaking, and the music is more palatable than in many Disney features. But be cautious: this is too intense for the

4-0 out of 5 stars Monarchies tend to create dysfunctional families.
Disney's "The Lion King" is a pretty good movie about a young lion cub, named Simba, who is to become king of a place called Pride Rock located in the appropriately named Pride Lands. I always thought that the part where Simba's father, Mufasa, is killed by his brother, Scar, was kind of tough to watch. On the other hand, from a historical standpoint, scenarios like these were at some point a commoplace reality, all because of an intense desire for power. The most memorable part of the film is the scene where Scar turns on the hyenas, to whom he'd referred as the "real enemy," then tries to make up with them right afterwards by calling them his "friends." The best part was the subsequent reaction by the hyenas to his double crossing.
5-0 out of 5 stars il'd love to give this 20 out of 5 stars
this movie was incredable. i don't understand how people can dislike this film. this movie's deep and intense story made it great for children AND their parents, a feat rarely accomplished. but rather than stay depressing and traumatizing, this film goes from drama to side-splitting humor within 13 seconds. the best part is that this is all done with seemless perfection.
1-0 out of 5 stars dont mess with classics
I give the original 5 stars, but why is disney taking all its classics and adding new songs to it? i was so dissapointed when i rented this and there were new scenes in it. i dont want "new and improved" i want the original, the one i watched when i was younger. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars the movie is 5 stars, but WTF Amazon?
after all these reviews they still haven't corrected the problem. I thought i made the mistake of ordering the wrong format, but after checking and double checking the listing, i realize it's not me - it's them.I sent the stupid PSP version back and hope they get me the right version.

This is not the DVD version. Amazon has incorrectly advertised this!!! I ordered this before the previous comments were made and now i have to wait until it gets to me before I can return it.

If you get Python, it is freakin' great. Laugh harder every time I watch it, especially if I have had a bad day.

1-0 out of 5 stars No Subtitles or Close Captioning
Despite the fact that this is an awesome and humorous movie (The best monty python ever made). This gets a 1 from me for having no subtitles or close captioning since I am hard of hearing. Are there any versions with subtitles??

5-0 out of 5 stars What Have The Romans Ever Done For Us
John Cleese once said that this film is what he'd most like to be remembered for, which coming from a man who wrote some of the best Python sketches and Fawlty Towers, should tell you something about how good this film is.

Editorial Review

Jingoism, beefcake, military hardware, and a Giorgio Moroder rock score reign supreme over taste and logic in this Tony Scott film about a maverick trainee pilot (Tom Cruise) who can't follow the rules at a Navy aviation training facility. The dogfight sequences between American and Soviet jets at the end are absolutely mechanical, though audiences loved it at the time. The love story between Cruise's character and that of Kelly McGillis is like flipping through pages of advertising in a glossy magazine. This designer action movie from 1986 would be all the more appalling were it not for the canny casting of good actors in dumb parts. Standouts include Anthony Edwards--who makes a nice impression as Cruise's average-Joe pal--and the relatively unknown Meg Ryan in a small but memorable appearance. Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Why in the world is this movie still popular?
I watched Top Gun for the first time since I was a kid the other day, and I just have to ask, what's so great about this movie?It's utter garbage.The plot makes no sense at all.Who are they fighting in the war at the end?And the war only lasts 15 MINUTES?And Tom Cruise ends the war?Huh?The film is also very gay at points.What was with the guys standing around in their underwear and hugging each other throughout the movie?And I won't even get started on the volleyball game.The dialogue for the movie is completely lame and stupid, filled with nothing but sexual references and cursing.It takes real brains to come up with that type of "witty" dialogue.And finally the acting is so hammy and chessy, you actually wonder why this movie made big stars out of Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, and Tim Robbins.This piece of trash should have ended all of their careers.And most people probably would have wanted their careers to end.In the end, Paramount didn't even want Tom Cruise on their payroll.
4-0 out of 5 stars 2 Disc Special Edition is a winner!!
This review is of the two disc special edition of Top Gun, not the prior one disc edition.Top Gun is essentially about a naval pilot's journey through fighter weapons school.He must resist his rebellious individual nature to become the best pilot and also a team player.If you're reading this review, chances are you've already seen the movie so I'll focus on reviewing the dvd.
1-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps the Most Overrated Film Ever
I've seen this several times over the years and still can't make sense of why it's such a favorite. The acting is subpar, the drama cheesy and in my opinion as an active duty sailor, fails quite miserably to capture the true spirit of being in the Navy. To think that lunatic Tom Cruise practically built a career off of this garbage...sigh... ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Story of an Overachiever in Sports.
This film documents the training and durability of Steve Prefontaine from Oregon to become a track star who overcame all odds to win.In his early live, he had been picked on by bullies because of his mother's nationality so, like Forrest Gump, he had to learn to run fast from those crass youngsters.When he finished high school, he was courted by several universities but chose to stay in his home state to be trained by Bill Bowerman at the University of Oregon.
4-0 out of 5 stars A very good bio pick of a great runner who died too young
Steve Prefontaine, a record setting middle distance runner, won all his races against Americans.He led his race in the 1972 Olympics but faded to fourth by a breath.He died in a car accident (drinking was involved, but to what degree is debated) in 1975 at the age of 24.All admit that he wasn't the perfect physical specimen for a runner, but he was gritty and tenacious and would not give anything less than everything he had.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This is such a great true story of a man that we can all look up to.Prefontaine was an amazing runner who was the holder of every American distance-running record from 2,000 to 10,000 meters.The cast is top quality and the story will make you clue yourself to the seat so get some pop corn and a drink before you start because this is an amazing movie about a man who was spectacular. ...

If you are looking a movie with a plot or a love story this isn't it! If you are a porsche or race fan & want to watch a movie with the greatest race car every made (Porsche 917) then this is the movie for you! It's a must see!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Auto Racing Movie - -Ever
Bought the CD after having the video for years.This is a great movie if you are a racing fan.Steve McQueen spent a fortune making the racing movie he wanted to produce.The photograpy is great - -the storyline secondary.All filmed at the LeMans track in the 69-70 era when the 8 mile configuration was at its best."Grand Prix" as a movie was very good - - but clearly a second to Le Mans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hot Porsches
I had seen this before purchasing, and knew the story line was weak, but the value in this one is the classy cars, and the awesome sounds of them racing...I'm a Porsche lover, esp. this era, so this one is a winner...a real keeper! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A chick flick my boyfriend liked
This movie is really funny.I am really glad they made it into a movie because I just could not get into the writing style of the book.The movie was excellent.My boyfriend did not complain about going because it was funny and there was tons of sex.I hope they keep doing that with chick flicks to keep couples in harmony.Bad for 1st dates, but great for established couples.Great movie as is the second one the edge of reason.

5-0 out of 5 stars To Brigid - who we love just the way she is!
Don't miss this movie.It actually is funnier to me each time I watch it.And I won't reveal that number as it's a tad embarrassing!Of course it's a chick flick and though the ending is quite predictable as are most chick flicks - the beginning to end content is ridiculously funny.You'll find yourself actually embarrassed for poor Brigid and maybe even relating to her tragedies - Is there a Brigid in you?Watch it and find out!

2-0 out of 5 stars all the clever British humor can't save this one...
If this movie were set in the US, I would've given it 1 star but the British accent, humor, and colloquialisms partially saved it...but not enough, sorry to say!

I have seen over 500 movies, and this movie is in my top ten greatest movies of all time.This movie is JAM PACKED with action and exciting moments.Just following along is EXHILARATING!And the cast... THE CAST!!You have Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler, Steve Buscemi, Owen Wilson, Michael Clarke Duncan, Billy Bob Thornton, and William Fichtner.Does it get any better than that?I have seen this movie over and over and still love it.You may shed a tear over it, so keep the Kleenex handy.If you are an action movie fan, there is no doubt in my mind that this movie belongs in your collection.

Armageddon is one of those movies that have ridiculous science scenes, retarded plotlines, and horrible acting; yet, it ends up with enjoyable scenes and hilarious moments.

This movie has it all, great screenplay, actors, set, costumes, extras, direction and cinematography. Everything appears to be set in the correct time period. And does a very vivid job portraying of the Eighteenth Centaury in the Amazon Jungle.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing.
This film is as close as it gets to perfection in the genre of historical fiction. DeNiro and Irons turn in two of the best peformances of their careers. The story, by Robert Bolt, is both complex and compelling. Few films engage the viewer on such a deep level and ask them to make a choice between the characters and their convictions. Is it right to take up arms to defend the innocent or is pacificism the only path for followers of Christ? Best film to ever take on this question. The scenery is majestic and the film's score is haunting. This is a sad, beautiful film that will rarely be equaled. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars a brief review about the 2nd movie
Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets is the type of movie that will be around forever. So far the two Harry Potter movies have been excellent movies in which spirit of the books by JK Rowling has been captured and expanded upon.
4-0 out of 5 stars The series advances
Chamber of Secrets is of course the adaptation of the second book in the successful Harry Potter series, and finds the gang at Hogwarts racing to uncover a great evil that has been released upon the students again. In terms of translating the book to film, 'Chamber' is much more successful than the original, if only because the story is more focused and there is a stronger, hands-on climax that gives Harry something to do. In comparison to the third and fourth films, Chamber of Secrets was also the last movie where major chunks of the original story were not cut out or re-written. There are bits missing, but they aren't as obvious. It also started the trend of the series taking on a darker tone, so parents might want to watch this one with younger kids.
5-0 out of 5 stars from a kids point of view- excellent, higley enjoyable
this was a great movie. the 1st is still my favorite but this is still classic. Columbus sticks to the book extremely well, gets everything exactly how it should. If you will notice he did a WAY better job than the directors for the 3rd and 4th. His stuff was great. diagon ally, the costumes, the look, hogwarts, school, it was all great. ... Read more

This Disney is right up there with the tops, like 'Lady and the Tramp'.It should not be missed. The annimation is wonderful and the characters fabulous, such as the voice of Candy Candido as 'Fidget', and of course Vincent Price, who is priceless
4-0 out of 5 stars Clever Holmesian-Inspired Animated Movie
This 1986 Disney film was inspired and one of Disney's best from the 80s.The film is loosely based on Eve Titus's book "Basil of Baker Street," which recounts the adventures of a mouse living just adjacent the domicile of the incomparable Sherlock Holmes.Disney concocts a bona fide mystery with a couple of stellar talents to voice the characters.
5-0 out of 5 stars A superb "Sherlock Holmes" movie; one of the best, for all ages!
The Great Mouse Detective -- Disney's adaptation of Eve Titus's book Basil of Baker Street -- is by far the best "portrayal" of Sherlock Holmes, both characters and adventures, for kids, teens, or adults...with the possible exception of Without a Clue starringMichael Caine and Ben Kingsley [PG]. Both movies are true Holmes despite obvious differences, such as being a mouse.

5-0 out of 5 stars Trey Parker and the gang now show exactly why South Park isn't a kids show.
This movie shows that South Park was never intended to be a kid's show.When the show was seen through the human eye it was also then known that it wasn't concidered a kid's show.This movie is outrageous and shows the hilarious side of vulgar language.Any South Park fan who is offended by vulgar language is used to the show being cencored on TV.This movie is not for the easilly offended.Especially for people easily offended to the F word.This movie is hilarious and extremely outrageous.On Comedy Central they got away with airing it on TV only by showing it uncencored.Great film for the South Park fan and the ones not offended buy vulgar language.

It's been about 7 or so years as far as I can remember since I last saw South Park, and I have to say, I just remember it being more funny.This movie was unbearably lame.

Editorial Review

Tom Hanks's debut as a writer and director is a lively, affectionate account of the shooting-star career of a forgotten (fictional) '60s pop-rock band called The Wonders--as in "one-hit wonders." Hanks plays the manager of the group, which includes drummer Guy "Sticks" Patterson (Tom Everett Scott) who works the floor at his parents' appliance store in Erie, Pennsylvania; Jimmy (Johnathon Schaech), the talented and temperamental lead singer and songwriter; Lenny (Steve Zahn), the goofy guitarist; and Ethan Embry as a geeky little fellow identified in the cast list only as "The Bass Player." The movie traces their meteoric rise and fall, from cutting their first record, to going on tour with a Phil Spector/Motown-type revue, to the internal tensions that lead to the band's disintegration, which comes when they fail to follow up their smash hit single, "That Thing You Do!" And that song, by the way, is so catchy it would definitely have been a hit in 1964--and deserves to be one today. This delightful movie would make a great double-bill with Allison Anders's wonderful Read more

TTYD might be an OK film to someone born after the era which Tom Hanks attempts to convey here through cliché and outright quasi-Beatloid parody, but there are films aplenty from the 1960's that pretty much tell the same stale "unknowns-make-it-big" saga with far more authenticity and sincerity, simply by having been made during that time. Not even as believable as a film with Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, nor as musically sophisticated.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Movie If You're a Fan of Pop Music
I admit to really loving this movie.I read somewhere that Tom Hanks came up with the idea for the script after watching a Beatles documentary.Based on the timing of its mid-90's release, I'm certain it was the Anthology series - which aired in that period on ABC television.Being a huge Beatles fan - and having almost worn out my Anthology DVD set - you can see a lot of the small touches in TTYD taken almost verbatim from the glory days of Beatlemania.As I've read in other reviews, the only real problem with the story arc is the Jimmy character.There's no real evidence of his genius, nor is there a trace of likeability.You also don't accept his "artistic gravitas" (which manifests even while he's still playing in his parents' garage in small-town Erie, PA), because there's not even the slightest hint that he has the goods to back it up.The song that becomes their one hit only did so because it was played contrary to his original concept.This makes the climactic, inevitable ending ring hollow, because at that point you're sort of glad that scowling, sulking and ever-petulant Jimmy is gone.I liked Tom Everett Scott a lot, but Steve Zahn basically walks away with the movie as Lenny - it's kind of a shame he hasn't had more substantial comedic roles over the last 10 years.One of the little details I liked is that they started out as a true garage band, with cheap Sears & Roebuck Silvertone guitars and worn out drums.By the time they reach the middle of their state fair tour, and the record has significantly charted, they're all playing on brand spanking new Rickenbacker's, Fender's and (I think) Ludwig drums.The short scale red Rickenbacker that Jimmy plays is the same model John Lennon used, and in a couple of scenes you can see Jimmy standing on stage aping his head-up, cocksure, wide stance at the mike.
5-0 out of 5 stars Favorite Movie
This is a classic band movie.It's very inspirational, engaging, has wonderful music you can sing a long to and definetely makes you want the soundtrack.It's a movie that is short, sweet and sensational.The Wonders rock my socks. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Better with age
Whoever thought of hiring Robert Altman, whose films up to the making of "Popeye" were excoriating examinations --and critiques -- of American society (someone called them "poison letters to America"; no such thing), get to direct "Popeye," a disarmingly charming film with no other pleasure than itself. In fact, it is somewhat disorienting at first; as with any genre film that Altman helms, it is a deconstruction of the original. For one, "Popeye" doesn't like spinach. Anyway, he has found in Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall the perfect incarnations of Popeye and Olive Oyl. For once Williams's worst traits -- maudlin sentimentality that begs the audience to love him -- is kept in check. And Duvall --whatever happened to her?!!!-- is simply adorable and touching. But as far as I am concerned, the world Altman has created on the island of Malta is amazing. The set decorations and the feel of the photography are like none I have ever seen before or since--a combination of the cartoonish and the natural that really grows on you. Which is much like the film: it grows better as it goes along despite the music, which is not about to leave anyone humming after the lights come up. All in all, this is a strange film in the Altman cannon--one of the most pleasant, and perhaps shallowest ones; certainly there is no anti capitalist meassage. But it is a joy. Take it for what it is. A strange melange indeed. It's gotten better ith age.

5-0 out of 5 stars Popeye-Greatest Character Treated With Care
So many little things in this movie that go unnoticed by the Rosanne crowd that make this movie so fantastic.Bluto's "She will!!!...She won't!!" ceremony while waiting for Olive.Popeye's "I Yam What I Yam" song with pretty much nobody paying attention to him.The Oyl family and their "appropriate" first names.Coal Oyl telling Castor to "Give Em Oyl!" before Castor does battle with Oxblood Oxheart.

Editorial Review

Perhaps only the collective brilliant minds of the Monty Python film and television troupe are up to the task of tackling a subject as weighty as the Meaning of Life. Sure, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, and their ilk have tried their hands at this puzzler, but only Python has attempted to do so within the commercial motion picture medium. Happily for us all, Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Hard To Believe It's Monty Python
Usually I'd give a five star review to anything Monty Python has done, but this film didn't really strike a chord with me.The reason?Lots of sex, gore, and vomit.I usually like things that are more suitable for children, so there was a lot of stuff in this movie for me not to like.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Comedy
I don't know about "DVD mastering" of this film which was criticized---I saw the VHS version. And, I don't know about people who can't laugh at "the Protestant vs. Catholic" incongruities---I suppose those people take their religion very seriously or are just "very serious" type of people.But, if you can see that "there is humor in everything" then you'd enjoy this CLASSIC COMEDY immensly!The film is not totally "suitable for children" because there is one "sex scene" in the film which I used to "fast forward" when any kids were present in the room while the film was on.So, it's an "adult film" I'd say.The good about the film is that you'll see one clever satire after another about many subjects that you might have believed were not humorous before seeing the film.And, it is an "intelligent funny film" ---it's not a farce or silly.You'll enjoy it---if you're not "too serious" that is!

1-0 out of 5 stars I walked out on it in theaters back in 1983!
I went and saw another film as I was so disenchanted with this one. The opening had so little to do with the rest of the film I thought I was watching a preview to another film. I don't care for spoofs about Catholics and protestants. The Pythons can't sing or dance (for those on this board who claim their talents are innumerable). I say to the fans of Python: get a life! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An extremely well crafted movie
This is a fantastic movie about the HMS Surprise, commanded by Captain Jack Aubrey, stalking the French vessell Acheron to the "far side of the world" during the Napoleanic era.The filem is intricately detailed, and while I am no sailor, most of the details strike true.I do know that the British Navy by the time of this story absolutely revered Lord Nelson, and that reverance is played out in this movie when several younger offciers ask the Captain for impressions of Nelson during one of his two meeting with the Admiral.The cannons have names, the bells number the hours of the shipboard day.A knotted rope line is played out to measure the ship's speed in knots.A sounding is taken to read the depth of the sea, and sextant lessons are given to measure true noon.In fact the level of detail is overwhelming, but the story is just as good.
5-0 out of 5 stars Far Side is the MASTER
What a great epic movie, only wish I bought the wide screen instead - wonderful movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars Okay, so I really, really LIKED it ...
I read the book, and responded to the story in a manner that might be deemed "unmanly" by some.I saw the movie, and the water-works began all over again.There is much here, mostly things that are in gravely short supply.A sense of purpose, and sense of there being a meaning that's too big to see.And Hope.
2-0 out of 5 stars the book is a lot better
i had high expectation on the video but it turned out to be quite disappointed and boring, i have to say that the one is one of my favourite books i ever read

1-0 out of 5 stars Manipulation
this is a crass emotional manipultion..all be it well produced manipulation that gives the viewer a warm fuzzy feeling while very slyly promoting war..suggesting war is a duty to your country or what have you.

Editorial Review

This terrifying adaptation of Stephen King's bestselling horror novel was directed by shock maestro Brian De Palma for maximum, no-holds-barred effect. Sissy Spacek stars as Carrie White, the beleaguered daughter of a religious kook (Piper Laurie) and a social outcast tormented by her cruel, insensitive classmates. When her rage turns into telekinetic powers, however, school's out in every sense of the word. De Palma's horrific climax in a school gym lingers forever in the memory, though the film is also built upon Spacek's remarkable performance and Piper Laurie's outlandishly creepy one. John Travolta has a small part as a thug, De Palma's future wife, Nancy Allen, is his girlfriend, and Amy Irving makes her screen debut as one of the girls giving Carrie a hard time. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Carrie
This *is* a sad movie and is disturbing, but worth a look for at least one reason.
5-0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC HORROR TRAGEDY!!!!!
Only a few movies really horrified me as a child: Dawn Of The Dead, The Shining, Phantasm, and Carrie. I despise The Shining because I read the book in junior high and saw that Kubrick, although brilliant, had butchered a book that was really too involved to put on celluloid. Carrie remains the only King novel-to-film that stands alone in itself as a horror classic, although the book is just as disturbing.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic horror filmmaking
Carrie has everything you could possibly want in a horror film.Good characters, a good plot, good acting, and some very unsettling violence to top everything off.Anyone who knows horror knows the ending of Carrie, but unless you have seen it for yourself (in the context of viewing the whole film) you will never know the intensity, brutality, and shock value of the prom sequence.Brian De Palma put his name on the map with this movie, and rightfully so.

4-0 out of 5 stars Extension makes little difference toalready great movie
Before the extension the movie was 4/5. After the extension the movie is still 4/5. The additional 8 min. didn't add that much more to the movie that we didn't already know about. Just minor slow paced extensions of sceens that were in the previous cut. There's a reason why these extensions didn't make the final cut in the theaters, because they wern't necessary for us to gain any more understanding. Do yourself a favor and avoid buying this edition if you already have the original copy and get the Blue Ray high-def when it comes out soon.

2-0 out of 5 stars boring
didn't get into it; nothing engaging here; movie didn't make me interested at all; characters boring; turned it off after 30 minutes

4-0 out of 5 stars accurate picture of modern day urban warfare
This movie seems to be a portrayal of the modern day soldier's esperiences in war being fought in urban settings.A real eye opener for those of us who still think of war in the terms ofWWII and other wars of that era.This is exciting, eye opening and frightening all at the same time.Definitely not recommended for a bed time story or for young children.It contains the story of war and all that goes with fighting a war. ...
