    3-0 out of 5 stars Fred Astaire as sexual predator.
    Overall as musicals go, this is ok, but I was very uncomfortable with Fred Astaire acting like a sexual predator.The way he aggressively approached and man handled Audrey was atrocious.

    4-0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore!
    If you've only heard about FUNNY FACE, you really owe yourself to SEE it with your own eyes for the first time - and now that you can buy the DVD at Target for like $5 clams, why not?There are many great old-school "Golden Age" musical numbers on display here, from THINK PINK to BONJOURS PARIS (filmed in various locales around the City of Lights, sorta like a fashion-magazine inversion of ON THE TOWN), and especially the cool-cat beatnik dance number Hepburn does in the bohemian bar - *you'll note that THE GAP recently used clips from this celebrated sequence in their "Skinny Black Pant" ads set to, of all things, Back in Black by AC/DC! - but here is the original, and it's sublime - you are amazed how expertly Audrey hoofs it up in gay Paris!The direction is flawless, especially several auteur touches, like the stop-motion photographer during the Givenchy outdoor photoshoot, and the one dance sequence in Astair-cum-Avedon's photo darkroom only lit by one tiny red bulb...now that's TECHNICOLOR! While the films' gender politics have dated, this was filmed in a different era and much more conversative sensibility, so cut the movie some slack. This is a gorgeous, timeless musical that could use a contemporary update by a major studio - hello?!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Funny Face
    Audrey Hepburn is perfect for this movie and I enjoyed it very much.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing
    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 The Green Mile
    Stellar performances from all of the cast.The story is compelling, and you really get to fall in love with Coffey, played by Michael Clarke Duncan, who is accused of a horror of a charge that he did not commit.This is one of those movies that may test your threshold for crying.Be sure to have some kleenex handy.Five stars for this fine title. ...

    GA. how can anyone stand this drivel? worst movie i ever watched repeatedly. worse than watching "walk tall" 8 times in a row. worse even than watching the home shopping network. eww. EWW.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Very Popular And Enjoyable Film
    Even though this film was released in 1985, now, more than 20 years later, it is still highly entertaining.You get at least a few moments with each character, develop a feel for them, and come to like them all.You really want to see them succeed, and the suspense of whether they will or not is constant.This movie is good for all ages, and is rated PG.The Cyndi Lauper "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" song was a nice touch.Richard Donner and Steven Spielberg created a magical movie that will be enjoyed for years to come.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie about the bonds of womanhood.
    This movie is a light harted romantic comedy on the surface.However, after watching it so many times that I could recite the lines by heart, I think there is much more to this film than meets the eye.Personally, I have studied acting and film, and I am also a writer, so from my personal experience with these things---I feel confident in saying this film is so much more than chick lit! The book by Alice Hoffman is considered chic lit, however it and this movie speaks more deeply to the way women treat one another.How judgemental we women actually are of each other, take the word witch out of it and replace it with anyother not so nice word, and women are much more likely to call each other that than men are!
    5-0 out of 5 stars SUPERB!
    This movie is so touching and magical. Once I've started watching it (can't even count the number of times I've watched it), I find it is hard to press the STOP button. Buy it and you won't regret and plus, I think Charmed "stole" the gist of this movie, if U catch my drift *wink*

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favs!
    I can not even tell you how many times i have watched this movie. This is probably the most natural performance I have ever seen from Kidman. She really seemed to fit the part. This movie can do no wrong with Sandra Bullock, a kickbutt soundtrack, and a well written story. Definitely one you will watch over and over!

    Editorial Review

    When this popular prison drama was released in 1994, some critics complained that the movie was too long (142 minutes) to sustain its story. Those complaints miss the point, because the passage of time is crucial to this story about patience, the squeaky wheels of justice, and the growth of a life-long friendship. Only when the film reaches its final, emotionally satisfying scene do you fully understand why writer-director Frank Darabont (adapting a novella by Stephen King) allows the story to unfold at its necessary pace, and the effect is dramatically rewarding. Tim Robbins plays a banker named Andy who's sent to Shawshank Prison on a murder charge, but as he gets to know a life-term prisoner named Red (Morgan Freeman), we realize there's reason to believe the banker's crime was justifiable. We also realize that Andy's calm, quiet exterior hides a great reserve of patience and fortitude, and Red comes to admire this mild-mannered man who first struck him as weak and unfit for prison life. So it is that Read more

    This movie does not offer intense special effects, but it doesn't need any.It is truly good storytelling based on a book by Stephen King.If you are the type of person who really loves a good story, and does not mind a bit of darkness and a healthy portion of adversity, give this movie a chance.Worth buying and watching again and again.Five stars.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Possible product packaging issue
    I purchased the boxed set in mid-August 2006 and unfortunately, due to a defective disk, returned it immediately.I say unfortunately because the set was immaculate otherwise.Amazon's replacement service kindly sent a replacement set the day I was sending the original back--gotta love that; thanks Amazon!HOWEVER, the replacement was not packaged completely.My replacement set did not include individual cardboard envelopes for the three plastic hard cases.(The holder which holds the three hard cases together was there; but each hard case is further protected by a cardboard envelope, which helps keep them from rubbing against each other in the holder.This is important; because each hard case has chrome-like lettering which could rub off over time without the added protection.This is apparently a QC issue wherever the sets are assembled--I do not think Amazon was to blame).So, regrettably, I returned this set as well.Just be aware you may receive a set which doesn't contain individual cardboard envelopes for each plastic hard case.If you can live with that, it's no big deal and you will love this set--I'm just picky!Star Trek rules!And thanks again, Amazon, for your superb customer service!

    1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF!!!
    How long is Paramount going to milk the Star Trek name?There is NO WAY I'm going to cough up $175 for a DVD set of three seasons of ANY show.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Huge price drop just in time
    They are going to be re-releasing the original series with added computer generated graphics and effects.When I found this out I went to Amazon to check used copies of the original series so I would have a collection of the origial series without the added CGI.The whole series used to cost upwards to $400 at some retailers, and I was able to pick it up just now brand new off Amazon for ~$175, which is still steep for a non-fan, but is a great deal if like me you want to have a collection of the original series, especially before they add the CGI. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mythological
    I am neither a fan of mythology OR claymation.I was curious about this movie, because of Harry Hamlin's role.Even though it was filmed only a year before MAKING LOVE, I found he looked so much younger as Perseus than his Maguire characer in Making Love.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ray Harryhausen's Last Hurrah (or...A Great Movie That Will Soon Get A Makeover)
    In 1986 just 5 years after the 1981 release of Clash of the Titans came a movie that set the new standard for "creature" special effects. That movie was Aliens, and comparing the creature special effects of Aliens to that of Clash of the Titans is like comparing Aliens to The Muppets.
    4-0 out of 5 stars THE MARVELOUS MEDUSA
    Don't worry about the list of big name actors here...this is special effects legend Ray Harryhausen's film.This is Ray's last film and the only one in which he used assistants, but the effects are just perfect for this kind of film:the horrifying Kraken; the wondrous Pegasus; the two headed dog; Bubo, the hilarious mechanical golden owl; the evil Kalabos; the killer scorpions; and of course, the movie's showpiece:the hideous and unique Medusa, snakes and all.Harry Hamlin, Judi Bowker, Burgess Meredith, Laurence Olivier, Maggie Smith, Donald Houston, Ursula Andress...they're merely human puppets to balance out the wonderful Harryhausen creations.This is probably the last of the great stop motion animated films and fans of this ilk will eat this one up! ...

    A guilty, guilty pleasure, perhaps not one a left-wing feminist should be admitting to in public. Female boomers should recall yearly TV reruns of this Rodgers and Hammerstein production, featuring such delights as "Impossible" and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?" It may appear a bit stark to younger viewers, but part of the charm of this 1964 network TV special, a remake of the live 1957 telecast originally built around Julie Andrews, is its utter simplicity. An extremely young Lesley Ann Warren and Stuart Damon (of Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Wow, in a Bad Way
    This production of Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella is cringeworthy at best.I understand this was a television movie, but they couldn't at least choose good actors and provide a better set?Cinderella acts and sounds like a complete ditz, all starry-eyed and breathless voice.It's partly the fault of the camera-work though.Every 10 seconds and it's an extreme close-up of Cinderella's face.It's frightening.I love the music and this musical, but if it's not well-acted or well-sung, it's not enjoyable for me.I've only heard the Julie Andrews version in soundtrack form, and already that one is 100X better.There's none of the pleasant, exciting, and lovely performances of the original cast.This version has no energy.The exception is the Prince and his parents the King and Queen; they weren't bad.But the rest of the show is the epitome of cheesiness - which could have been avoided if feeling and energy were put into the performances, even despite the terrible sets.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Singing in the Rain -most excelent
    This movie entertains over and over again.The quality of the film on the dvd is great.The extra's on the dvd are well worth it.If you love Gene Kelly this is one you will really treasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing movie, even more amazing extras!
    This film, I think, can be considered to be the greatest musical of all time. I just LOOOVED it! Gene Kelly's magic feet dance to catchy Jazz-Age tunes, there are colorful musical numers, and superb comedy. What more could you ask for? And I'm glad it's finally out on a 2-disc special edition, with great special features. I loved the documentaries on disc 2, but what I REALLY LIKED about the extras were the musical clips from the movies where the songs originated! I didn't know about Freed/Brown songs then, I was suprised to find out that the movie was based on all of those songs from the early talkies. Those clips just changed my life. I bought most of the movies they were excerpted from. Now I know who Eleanor Powell is, I know who Robert Taylor is, and I'm totally hooked on their films! I've seen practically all of Eleanor Powell's movies! I mostly love about the extras is the "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'" clip. The first time I saw it, I was just dazed, and I was wondering who the heck Robert Taylor and June Knight were. I thought that musical number was the most beautiful and most escapist and most romantic number I'd ever seen in my life. Taylor and Knight make a LOVELY looking couple. Oh, and I've also seen 2 of June Knight's few films. So I bought Broadway Melody of 1936. Now, it's my favorite movie. If you don't see that you're missin' out big time. This movie, Singin' in the Rain started movie collecting which consists of over a 100 DVDs and rare VHSs. So I just want to say that Singin' in the Rain is one of my favorite movies of all time, and thank God for it, or else I'd never have liked musicals and old movies in the first place. P.S. The song "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin' really should've been a big production musical number in Singin' in the Rain. Bet it would've turned out wonderful, because that's such a great song, maybe even better than the title tune! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing
    When I first started watching this movie I was completly entranced.Halfway through I had to stop the movie becuase my family and I were going to the theatre to see another movie.The whole time I kept thinking of The Scarlet Pimpernel and was wondering what was going to happen.When I got back from the other movie, which, by the way, paled in comparison, I asked my brother where I could possibly buy this movie for cheap, becuase I do not have that much money.He then told me it frequently went in and out of print and that got me worried.So I went to the only place that I thought would have the movie, Amazon.com.[...]It arrived with perfect timing and the DVD works like any newly bought movie from a video store.Hopefully this review has helped someone to decide in buying this movie, which is clean, hilrious, and romantic and appropriate for everyone.It is now one of my FAVORITE movies. Thanks for reading!

    Editorial Review

    Well, bless my beautiful hide! Director Stanley Donen investsthis rollicking musical with a hearty exuberance. Howard Keel, with his big-as-all-outdoors baritone, stars as a bold "mountain man" living inthe Oregon woods who brings home a bride (plucky songbird soprano JanePowell) to his six slovenly brothers. Taming the rambunctious brood, Janeproceeds to make gentlemen of them so they can woo sweethearts of their own. Butold habits die hard: their flirting gives way to fighting in the film'scelebrated barn-raising scene, a lively acrobatic dance number exuberantly choreographed by Michael Kidd. Big brother chimes in with his own brandof advice--an old-fashioned kidnapping! Donen manages to get away withsuch a politically incorrect plot by investing the boys with a innocent sweetness, most notably the youngest brother played with genialearnestness by Rusty (Russ) Tamblyn (pre-Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - True Entertainment
    This 1954 musical release is just too good/too fun to pass up. Adam (Howard Keel - oh my god, what a voice) needs a wife and zeros in on Milly (Jane Powell) to drag back to his Oregon Territory farm and six unruly brothers. The tiny beauty has a backbone and rises to the challenge. Milly makes believers out of them. The brothers decide they want wives of their own and kidnap more cuties from town. Whoops, they forgot to drag the preacher along too and the pass gets snowed-in for winter.

    My sibling's and I loved this movie when we were young.Something about the movie made my sister and I bond, by fighting over which brother was the cutiest, and we could always con my brother into learning the dances with us!It truly is a movie that brought my family closer.I gave the DVD to both of them for Christmas a few years ago, and somehow, one of us always pulls out a copy when we are all together and we end up watching it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For the Animal Lover in Us All
    I avoided this film at first because I felt they "cartoonized" Sheila Burnford's original novel and the original Disney movie, which I remember seeing on the weekly television series. But seen as a stand-alone this is a fun film about three animals trying to make their way back to their family. The animals are provided voice-over thoughts by Don Ameche (as elderly Shadow), Michael J. Fox (as Chance, the young, recently adopted dog who doesn't trust the humans not to abandon him), and Sally Field (as Sassy, the sarcastic Himilayan cat), and the story is more light than Burnford's original, although there are many touching moments as well. One BIG point off for Disney failing to release this film in letterbox. Apparently they just Don't Get It.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Homeward Bound - The Incredible Journey
    This movie would have to be one of the best animal movies of all time.My whole family loved it (adults and kids).I highly recommend this movie to any animal lovers.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but no widescreen!
    Unforunately, this great movie got bad treatment when Disney decided to make a DVD of it full screen only. Why is it so hard to release a movie in its original aspect ratio?

    Rounder is not your typical card playing movie. It's about the angles. Being able to play cards blind. Being able to know your oponent. And it's all about knowing when to bluff.

Stakes are high for Mike in this movie where he has to battle between two worlds: Worm, Russian Mob, Sharks, Casinos and loads of stacks of high society and that very 5th street where, knowingly and blindly you could win a hand or loose it all in a matter of seconds; or your beautiful and dedicated (yet bitchy) girlfriend for whom there was definitely NO OTHER LIFE than college's education.

    Editorial Review

    Audrey Hepburn plays a Parisienne whose husband is murdered and who finds she is being followed by four men seeking the fortune her late spouse had hidden away. Cary Grant is the stranger who comes to her aid, but his real motives aren't entirely clear--could he even be the killer? The 1963 film is directed by Stanley Donen, but it has been called "Hitchcockian" for good reason: the possible duplicities between lovers, the unspoken agendas between a man and woman sharing secrets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Parade of Surprises in Charade
    Don't take anything for granted in this classic spy thriller from 1963 as the viewer visits Gay Paris, not so gay, through the eyes of Audrey Hepburn (1929-93) who is the surprise victim of one of the best spy flicks ever made. Cheeky dialogue between Cary Grant and Hepburn make it a tour de force as we ride elevators, subways, teeter on rooftops, eat delicious French bread, tour the Montparnasse, accompanied by the sprightly music of Henry Mancini. I particularly enjoyed shots of Hepburn's classic gamine profile and her smart Givenchy outfits, while Cary Grant shines with charm, as do co-stars Walter Matthau and James Coburn. In our modern post 9/11 age where we've lost our innocence, revisit innocence again in this delightful who-dun-it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars kept me guessing ...
    ... the whole time I was watching the movie.Very witty dialogue and scenes; flawless acting by lead and supporting actors.The viewer never knows until the end if Cary Grant's character is a thief or something else.The only shortcoming is that this DVD didn't have subtitles.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A tip on which version to get
    If you can afford it, the newer Criterion Collection version (not the older one) is the best, in that it has a fine anamorphic widescreen transfer and a commentary by the director.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A life reduced to a series of montages
    Blow portrays the life and times of one George Jung, a real-life drug dealer currently serving a long prison sentence and not eligible for parole until 2015.Ted Demme presents Jung's life as a series of montages, growing up in Massashusetts son of a hard-working man and a shrewish wife, moving to California with a childhood friend and becoming immersed in the marijuana trade, serving a stint in jail and meeting a Columbian who introduces him to cocaine, working his way up in Pablo Escobar's Medellin cartel and making more money than he can spend, betrayal by his colleagues and leaving the business, busted again with large amounts of cocaine in his house during his 38th birthday party, out of jail making amends with his daughter, doing one last job so he can retire to California with his daughter, getting busted yet again and sentenced to 60 years.It's hard to tell how much of the stroy is real and how much is a product of George Jung's imagination, but in the end Demme had no choice but to trust Jung's portrayal of his life.To Demme's credit (and maybe Jung's) the movie doesn't deify Jung's life.He made his decisions for whatever reasons good or bad.We can guess what his motivations were, and decide whatever we want to about his decisions.In the end, Jung's life is yet another largely wasted by drugs.Whatever your opinions are on drugs, this movie's portrayal of Jung's life is largely neutral on the political questions.That's one reason I rate it so highly.It doesn't glamorize drugs, nor does it make any judgements on the penalties that Jung ends up getting because of his involvement in the drug trade.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Rise and fall of a drug dealer
    This film is far from perfect but it certainly is a time capsule of the 70's annd 80's growth of cocaine culture in the US and the story of one man who played a key role in it's spread. Johnny Depp is fabulous in the lead role as George Jung and the supporting cast is solid, with the possible exception of Penelope Cruz who is ok but probably the weakest performer in the movie.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Easily one of Depp's best performances...
    This is one of my all time favorite movies.Why would a movie about a notorious American drug dealer be one of my favorites? Simple: the filmakers manage to make you feel sympathetic for George Jung and that, to me, is pretty amazing.Here's a guy who's wrecked millions of lives by distributing and selling cocaine over many years(inbetween prison stints) and 'we' manage to feel sorry for the guy.One example would be the scene where George talks to his wife over the prison phones.She drops the phone, walks away and his young daughter appears standing in the back looking at him.He talks to his daughter, who is angry at him, and after she walks away, George looks up at his wife and violently hits the phone against the glass.Very moving scene... but remember we are talking about a DRUG DEALER(!). Depp is incredible in this, the way he makes you feel sorry for his character, who wants to spend time with his young daughter and manages to keep breaking promises to her.But ultimately it's himself that did him in and he ends up right where he belongs.Prison.I think years down the line Depp will be recognized for this film, not to mention Paul 'Pee Wee Herman' Ruebens and Ray Liotta.Great movie, not so great human beings(in the movie).How ironic that the director of this movie died of a drug overdose.That in itself is pretty sad.Great bonus features-one of the best I've seen on a DVD.Any Depp fans MUST by this.You won't be sorry, not even for a second. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly gripping political thriller
    Sometimes Kevin Costner just can't be told. On Tin Cup he couldn't be told that a scene of him beating a security guard to a bloody pulp because he forgot his ID card wasn't going to endear him to the audience in a romcom (I never saw the finished film, but I believe the preview audiences succeeded in getting that scene cut). In The Postman he couldn't be told that ending a film with a statue of him being unveiled was really not a good idea. At all. And in Thirteen Days he couldn't be told that adopting a Boston accent was not a good idea when it makes him sound just like Elmer Fudd. For the first quarter of an hour you're just waiting for him to say "Be wewwy, wewwy qwuiet. I'm hunting Wussian Miss-eyells." So it's a testament to the strength of the film that it survives that hurdle and emerges as a gripping thriller even though we all know the ending.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A gripping portrayal of Camelot
    Whether or not absolutely accurate, this film allows us to witness a time when America was respected and its leadership admired by the whole Western World. With good reason: JFK demonstrated how moderation, intelligence and a cool head make for great presidents. Too bad his administration was not mimicked by those who followed him.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and historically accurate, film!
    I first saw this movie when it came to theaters and I purchased the DVD as soon as it became available.I was very pleased with the writing, direction and performances.The script stays true to every account I've ever read of the Cuban Missle Crisis and is told, for the purposes of storytelling, through the eyes of Kenny O'Donnell, one of the president's confidants.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cool series
    An epic sci-fi phenomenon began in 1966 when the first season of "Star Trek" began to broadcast on U.S. televisions. Created by the legendary writer Gene Roddenberry (1921-1991), the series was intended to run for five years detailing the missions of the mammoth starship known as the U.S.S. Enterprise, which was only one of several starships that were part of the United Federation of Planets' Starfleet. Unfortunately, the series was prematurely cancelled after only three complete seasons in spite of efforts of Gene Roddenberry, letter-writing campaigns conducted by fans to keep the show alive and 5 Emmy Award nominations. Ironically, it was only six weeks after the final third-season episode was broadcast (6/3/1969) that astronauts Neil Armstrong and 'Buzz' Aldrin became the first human beings to ever set foot on an extraterrestrial world, Earth's moon, on 7/20/1969. Then, instead of being forgotten after cancellation, in syndication, "Star Trek" began to rise in popularity in the early 1970's to such an extent that Paramount Pictures began toying with the idea of resurrecting the show. Instead, following the extremely successful 1977 sci-fi blockbuster film "Star Wars" (written and directed by George Lucas), Paramount Pictures did resurrect the show in the form of several big-screen films beginning in 1979. With a new generation being introduced to the fantastic universe created by Gene Roddenberry, more "Star Trek" television series were created. In total, there have been six "Star Trek" television series (5 live-action, 1 animated) and ten big-screen films; but all of them owe their thanks not only to Gene Roddenberry, but to the original "Star Trek" series cast and the many fans that kept the original show in syndication long after it was cancelled.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Kirk out!!
    When I was a kid, wearing my mail-order "Captain Kirk" command shirt of gold vellour, the words "Third Season Trek" were synonymous with "bad." To compare something with the Third Season meant invoking images of failure, disaster, and sudden, irrevocable decline. Some of the individual episodes of this season also became buzzwords for something that, for lack of a better description, just plain sucked. "Space hippies!"; "What have you done with Spock's brain!?"; "You half-black!"

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Life-Long Love Affair
    I fell in love with this movie at age 14, when it played for several months at the Plaza Theatre in NYC, where I saw it no less than three times.Although, at that age, I was a little confused by the film's structure, in which scenes from four different stages of the marriage of Mark and Joanna, the main characters, are juxtaposed, I did understand and appreciate the film's basic theme, that passionate love is enduring and, seemingly irrationally, can survive even the boredom that is inevitable in a long relationship.The energy and intelligence of Finney and Hepburn give this quirky little film an added vitality and render the relationship of Mark and Joanna believable and even endearing.This may be a serio-comedic film, but like serio-comedic life, it is infused with joy.I loved it in 1964,and I love it now.Everyone who is a little quirky should buy it, because it captures the essence of something special and a little off-center -- whatever it is that keeps Mark and Joanna together -- that will never be outdated.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Grown-Up Hepburn
    In this chronicle of a tempestuous marriage, told in a series of flashbacks, that takes place entirely on the couple's road trips in France, director Stanley Donen shows us amore adult, complex Audrey Hepburn than we usually see on film. She and Albert Finney play Joanna and Mark, a chic British couple, who quarrel their way across France in a variety of wonderful, compact European cars during their twelve year marriage. Since they both take turns driving during the course of the film, it's clear that this is a marriage where no one person is in the "driver's seat"--this is a marriage that (despite Mark's boorish behavior) is based on equality. The fact that they're usually in tiny cars also signifies the sometimes claustrophobic intimacy they experience with each other.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Love and life through the decades
    This is a romantic drama different from others you might find in the genre. Audrey Hepburn and Albert Finney play a couple who take repeated trips through Europe at various points in their life. The viewer watches them through the decades in out-of-sequence snippets as they fall in love, develop as a couple, have arguments, cheat, grow apart, and fall in love again. There's nothing melodramatic or contrived here, just a very honest look at how relationships change and carry on as we progress through life. Hepburn and Finney present real chemistry that makes them completely believable as a couple who've stayed together for so long. There's a beautiful, bittersweet score by Henry Mancini, and Stanley Donen continues to show why he was one of Hepburn's top collaborators.

    Editorial Review

    When this popular prison drama was released in 1994, some critics complained that the movie was too long (142 minutes) to sustain its story. Those complaints miss the point, because the passage of time is crucial to this story about patience, the squeaky wheels of justice, and the growth of a life-long friendship. Only when the film reaches its final, emotionally satisfying scene do you fully understand why writer-director Frank Darabont (adapting a novella by Stephen King) allows the story to unfold at its necessary pace, and the effect is dramatically rewarding. Tim Robbins plays a banker named Andy who's sent to Shawshank Prison on a murder charge, but as he gets to know a life-term prisoner named Red (Morgan Freeman), we realize there's reason to believe the banker's crime was justifiable. We also realize that Andy's calm, quiet exterior hides a great reserve of patience and fortitude, and Red comes to admire this mild-mannered man who first struck him as weak and unfit for prison life. So it is that Read more

    This movie entertains over and over again.The quality of the film on the dvd is great.The extra's on the dvd are well worth it.If you love Gene Kelly this is one you will really treasure.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing movie, even more amazing extras!
    This film, I think, can be considered to be the greatest musical of all time. I just LOOOVED it! Gene Kelly's magic feet dance to catchy Jazz-Age tunes, there are colorful musical numers, and superb comedy. What more could you ask for? And I'm glad it's finally out on a 2-disc special edition, with great special features. I loved the documentaries on disc 2, but what I REALLY LIKED about the extras were the musical clips from the movies where the songs originated! I didn't know about Freed/Brown songs then, I was suprised to find out that the movie was based on all of those songs from the early talkies. Those clips just changed my life. I bought most of the movies they were excerpted from. Now I know who Eleanor Powell is, I know who Robert Taylor is, and I'm totally hooked on their films! I've seen practically all of Eleanor Powell's movies! I mostly love about the extras is the "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin'" clip. The first time I saw it, I was just dazed, and I was wondering who the heck Robert Taylor and June Knight were. I thought that musical number was the most beautiful and most escapist and most romantic number I'd ever seen in my life. Taylor and Knight make a LOVELY looking couple. Oh, and I've also seen 2 of June Knight's few films. So I bought Broadway Melody of 1936. Now, it's my favorite movie. If you don't see that you're missin' out big time. This movie, Singin' in the Rain started movie collecting which consists of over a 100 DVDs and rare VHSs. So I just want to say that Singin' in the Rain is one of my favorite movies of all time, and thank God for it, or else I'd never have liked musicals and old movies in the first place. P.S. The song "I've Got a Feelin' You're Foolin' really should've been a big production musical number in Singin' in the Rain. Bet it would've turned out wonderful, because that's such a great song, maybe even better than the title tune! ... Read more
