    4-0 out of 5 stars I got hooked on "Grey's Anatomy" late...
    The DVD was a great way to catch up.Grey's is turning out to be one of my all-time favorite shows.There's good characterization, drama and a lot of interesting medical cases.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Addicting show
    I recently bought season 1 of Grey's Anatomy. I think the show is great.I am not much of a tv watcher but this show peaked my interest.It has many great actors in the show, especially Chandra Wilson. She is a powerful actress.The cast is diverse and the show keeps you wanting more. I just ordered the 2nd season and I can't wait to watch that one too.Its nice to find good shows on tv once again. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great movie, but not as good as the book
    I don't really believe there's more than 10 people in the world that haven't seen the movie or read the book, so probably not a big audience for this review.
    1-0 out of 5 stars The silliest story ever told
    This film has to be one of the most ridiculous ever made.It is an incoherent, baffling and tedious tale about some vast conspiracy by the Catholic Church to cover up the truth about Jesus (that he was married to Mary Magdalene and had offspring), and apparently just about everything that has ever happened in world history since has been caused by this continuing cover-up.I have seldom seen a film both so ridiculous and so boring.It is slow, dull, pretentious and almost entirely incomprehensible.It is depressing to think that the novel on which this film is based has been a massive best-seller.Absolute drivel from beginning to end.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than You Might Think
    The DaVinci Code deserved better reviews than it received from the critics. Ron Howard did a good job of condensing a very long and complex plot into a comprehensible movie of reasonable length. Tom Hanks does an excellent job of portraying the American symbologist who is suspected of murder, and Audrey Tatou is an excellent counterpart to Hanks. I didn't even mind Tom's hair--it seemed appropriate for his character. My husband, who had not read the book, had no problems following the plot, whereas I, who have read the book, am impressed that they managed to get as much of the book in there as they did. Forget the controversy about the book; don't even think of the idea that the main premise might be true, and concentrate on enjoying the movie. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Discomfort and Realism Have Never Been So Funny
    The Office almost didn't succeed.It wasn't because it wasn't funny (it is), wasn't well-acted (it is), or due to poor reviews (critics loved it); people were too afraid that it would pale in comparison to the British series of the same name upon which this show is based.Also, it is a very different style of comedy, which is a huge turn-off to people who are comfortable with the numerous (read: cookie cutter) sitcoms that flood the airwaves each year (Arrested Development fans know what I'm talking about).Anyway, with only a 6 episode first season, things looked pretty grim.Fortunately, the show was able to stay on the air long enough to win over a respectable fanbase, and now it looks like it will be here for a while.But about that first season...
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Beginning of Someting Incredible!!!!!
    If you want someting new, something fresh, something different; The Office, season 1, is for you!Not incorporating your regular "set up and punch line" comedy, this show will definatly have you laughing out loud.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The season that started it all
    Office hype is all over the media these days.The show won an emmy and Steve Carrell is "hot" right now.So, if you've become a fan of the show during the second or third season, you need to buy this DVD so you can see where it all began.

    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

    Sarah (a teenage Jennifer Connelly) rehearses the role of a fairy-tale queen, performing for her stuffed animals. She is about to discover that the time has come to leave her childhood behind. In real life she has to baby-sit her brother and contend with parents who don't understand her at all. Her petulance leads her to call the goblins to take the baby away, but when they actually do, she realizes her responsibility to rescue him. Sarah negotiates the Labyrinth to reach the City of the Goblins and the castle of their king. The king is the only other human in the film and is played by a glam-rocking David Bowie, who performs five of his songs. The rest of the cast are puppets, a wonderful array of Jim Henson's imaginative masterpieces. Henson gives credit to children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, and the creatures in the movie will remind Sendak fans of his drawings. The castle of the king is a living M.C. Escher set that adults will enjoy. The film combines the highest standards of art, costume, and set decoration. Like executive producer George Lucas's other fantasies, Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars 5 for the Movie. 1 for the DVD.
    If you're looking at this, you've probably seen the movie as a kid or with your children and want to share it with the next generation. So I won't waste your time with a review of the movie. I loved it and bought it to show my son, since I'm slowly getting rid of my VHS collection.
    3-0 out of 5 stars IMAGINITIVE AND FUN
    Despite some stilted acting, this is still a wildly imaginitive and fun movie with a great sense of humour. However it does get a little tedious towards the end.

    2-0 out of 5 stars not big on mixing musical with fantasy
    I never saw this movie until i was 16. The girl i was dating at the time loved this movie. The rocky horror picture show was number one on her list so i tend to compare this one to that one not that the storys are similar in any way. But they do have one thing in common they are both horrible movies. I did give this movie two stars because it had some slightly entertaining moments, well so did fraggle rock! fraggle rock got cancelled for a reason! everyone burn your copies now! ... Read more

    So says Kristin Davis, as Charlotte, when confronted with the idea of performing a particular sex act.This hilarious and clever series has many clever lines and funny moments that pass in the blink of an eye. I can't believe it has taken me this long to finally watch the show that everyone has been talking about for eight years.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sex and the City - Complete First Season
    Excellent- I expected it to be great, but it was even better than expected, I received it must faster than I anticipated. The show is just great. I have seen the shows I missed andI am looking forward to completing the entire series of the show.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
    Sex And The City is one of the comedies for the '90's, a slick, classy affair that's not afraid to push the boundaries to the limit. It's graphic (sort of) depiction of sex is ground-breaking, yet it doesn't forget it's main reason for being out there, to be funny.Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon are exemplary as Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. The supporting players (Chris Noth, etc.) are helpful and the plotlines are racy and hilarious.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Family Fantasy
    I remember when "Willow" first came out on the big screen.I remember how cool it was to watch the skull-helmeted General Kael ride onto the screen.I loved the swordplay of Madmartigan.The trolls were the creepiest things I've ever seen.Flash forward twenty-eight years, and "Willow" has lost some of its luster.It doesn't appeal to me as much as it did when I was a youngster.However, it is still a great film to watch with your family.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great story, great effects, little too violent for some younger
    Some scary scenes that startled our foreign exchange student who is 18. This is a family favorite and we often quote it aroung the dinner table with a few other movies and shows that we love. Great lessons, almost as many good lessons as Lord of the Rings but not near as violent as Lord of the Rings. Even the married kids want to borrow this often. The extra's were great and this is the first movie I watched with the director and even Willow's commentary with the movie.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps my favorite movie of all time!
    This is an exceptionally wonderful, entertaining film;I've watched and enjoyed it many times, and my teen and 'tween daughters have also fallen in love with it.The other reviewers have more than adequately described the outstanding performances of Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench, Alfred Molina, and Johnny Depp. One of my own favorites in the film, however, is Hugh O'Conor as the young parish priest, Pere Henri.His rendition of "Ain't Nothin but a Hound Dog" (while working in his garden) is priceless.Kudos also to Lena Olin in her role of Josephine, who evolves from battered wife to confident tavern owner. I can't imagine anyone not loving and enjoying this movie.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Boring
    Highly acclaimed. That, I knew. I watched the first 30 minutes, which is 1/4 of the movie, before I decided to hang it up. New lady moves into a conservative French town and opens a chocolate shop. This upsets the local church, even before she begins unleashing secret desires and so forth with her sinful chocolate. Okay. Can you really carry 2 hours with this single plot? Nope. This one's boring.

    Editorial Review

    The Salem witch hunts are given a new and nasty perspective when a vengeful teenage girl uses superstition and repression to her advantage, creating a killing machine that becomes a force unto itself. Pulsating with seductive energy, this provocative drama is as visually arresting as it is intellectually engrossing. Arthur Miller based his classic 1953 play on the actual Salem witch trials of 1692, creating what has since become a durable fixture of school drama courses. It may look like a historical drama, but Miller also meant the work as a parable for the misery created by the McCarthy anti-Communist hearings of the 1950s. This searing version of his drama delves into matters of conscience with concise accuracy and emotional honesty. Three passionate cheers for Miller, director Nicholas Hytner, and costars Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars excellent film of a great play
    If you can believe it, the first play I was ever in was The Crucible, when I had just finished sixth grade.We had a rather progressive director for the YMCA summer drama workshop.Her philosophy was that this was not theatre for children, but theatre by children and we did the last couple of scenes of this great play.I got to play Judge Danforth and my little brother was the Reverend Mr. Hale.I doubt any of our cast fully understood the play's ramifications then, but some of us understood enough to learn more, to read the entire play, and to try out for more plays when the chance came.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Disturbing and well made
    I'm not sure why I ordered this movie, given that usually I don't like too much suspence, but maybe the historical aspect of it drew me. In any event, I'm happy I've ordered it--it is very well made, the acting is unnervingly convincing, and the story makes one be VERY grateful for not living in that village at that time! The analogy to present time abuse of power, mass histerias and tendency for 'witch hunting' (though no longer in the literal sense, still very much in other finger-pointing-to-save-one's-own-face and terrorizing others to join or else...as well as pompous know-it-alls) is eerie. Ideas and locations change, but the human flock-factor seems to be an ever present enemy...
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not the definitive version, but ultimately moving and powerful
    The Crucible is considerably simplified from the play. Despite Arthur Miller handling the adaptation himself, so much of the historical detail and motivation for the witchhunts is dropped to get the narrative moving faster that at the end of the day the whole thing seems to have been reduced to a simple case of a woman spurned and a bad case of mass hysteria. Some awkward performances in the first half don't help either - Bruce Davison is shrilly ineffective, Daniel Day Lewis still seems to be doing Hawkeye, Joan Allen does her serious face again and the jury's still out on whether Winona Ryder is giving a convincing performance as an unconvincing liar or and unconvincing performance as a convincing liar. Yet the strength of the material shines through and suddenly, by the halfway point, you suddenly realise that you are completely gripped by it and that most of the performances have improved immeasurably once Paul Scofield has arrived to up the ante. Indeed, by the end the piece is genuinely tragic and moving (that said, I still maintain that the real hero of the piece is not John Proctor but Pastor Hale - the only character to realise his terrible error and to have the courage to publicly try to remedy it, however hopelessly). Excellent supporting performances from Karron Graves and, surprisingly, George Gaynes, although the houses seem a little too large for Puritan stock. Definitely a film of two halves, but worth seeing for the sheer power of the latter half.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Don't hate me for this...
    Well, I hate to say that I was not impressed, but I cannot lie so here it goes:
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Voluptuous Visual Narrative
    Words are extraneous in this, one of my favorite Hitchcock flicks.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Rear Window
    When I was a child, I got so sick of hearing how brilliant Alfred Hitchcock was. To the extent that I never watched any of his movies, if you can believe it. Well, this one's pretty damn cool. I really don't want to overanalyze all the techniques that our beloved director employed so well, lest I spoil the fun. The plot centers around a question. Did Raymond Burr kill his wife and chop her up with saw and knife? That's the impression injured Jimmy Stewart got from peeping through the windows. We had to throw in some subplots and have some fun as well, because of the length, and it's excellent in doing that. Almost everybody sends up himself or herself a little bit, and we have some laughs in addition to trademark suspense, and it's a great film.

    Editorial Review

    Charmless and dull, this adaptation of the Broadway hit stars Aileen Quinn as the depression-era moppet, Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, Carol Burnett as the cruel headmistress at an orphanage, and Tim Curry as a villain. The film never gets its legs, and there is no sense of setting; it's almost as if the whole thing is happening in a void. John Huston nominally directed--no doubt to make money between his smaller, cheaper masterpieces--but one would have thought he would invest something of himself in here. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Musical
    The Amazon review by Tom Keogh is totally ridiculous. "Charmless and dull???" I saw this movie about 8 times when it came out when I was little and was loved it so much. It's full of adventure, great songs, and a story about wanting to belong that children and adults can both relate to. The performances are great. One of Carol Burnett's best. If you haven't seen this movie yet, see it now.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not "Tomorrow" ..... Today!!!
    If you haven't already seen this one, do not wait until "Tomorrow", do it today.
    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best musicals

    Editorial Review

    This minor 1955 work by Alfred Hitchcock, one of the lighter entries of his creative peak in the 1950s, is still imbued with the master's stock themes of shared guilt and romantic ambivalence. It is also hardly lacking in Hitchcockian cinematic inventiveness, such as a famous, often-imitated sequence in which some smooching between stars Cary Grant and Grace Kelly is intercut with a fireworks show that just happens to be going on outside in a Riviera setting. Grant plays a reformed cat burglar who is suspected of reviving his trade, though he knows someone else is using his old methods. A very enjoyable experience, but don't get this confused with Hitchcock's other Cary Grant film of that decade, which was a masterpiece: Read more

    Everybody knows the plot of this movie. So, I can't add anything in that respect. However, I can tell you that the quality of the DVD is very good. Clear picture and sound - great buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock's Combo Platter: Style, Suspense and Comedy
    This is Hitch's least "heady" film -- the sheer physical beauty of Grace Kelly in her prime, Cary Grant in his, and the French Mediterranean in its, they all conspire to confound intellectualization. The screen seems slick with the vapors of the stars' physical luminosity.
    4-0 out of 5 stars To Catch a Thief
    You don't get much better than Cary Grant, Grace Kelly and Alfred and Edith Head.Full of fun, danger, and suspence, this suspenceful thriller shows how Hollywood used to make a romantic movie. Alas, can one imagine how this movie would be made today? All guns, car chases and explicit sex and very little plot! Let us be glad we have means of saving these classics for our future entertainment!!!! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    John Hughes's popular 1985 teen drama finds a diverse group of high school students--a jock (Emilio Estevez), a metalhead (Judd Nelson), a weirdo (Ally Sheedy), a princess (Molly Ringwald), and a nerd (Anthony Michael Hall)--sharing a Saturday in detention at their high school for one minor infraction or another. Over the course of a day, they talk through the social barriers that ordinarily keep them apart, and new alliances are born, though not without a lot of pain first. Hughes (Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Classic in its own right
    I dont know what its like to have gone to school in the 1980's or have gone to school in the United States but I can still relate to this movie. This movie could have been set anywhere and in any decade and it would still tell the same story, only fashion and accessories would be different. Everyone has seen this movie by now and everyone has an opinion on it and most will say it is a really good movie. I would say that it deserves to be called a classic by now. It may not be a laugh out loud comedy or very dramatic and does move a little slow at times, but it delivers its message loud and clear and keeps you engaged throughout the whole movie. It gains momentum as it moves along and by the end, after experiencing all the emotiions you will feel satisfied.
    5-0 out of 5 stars 1980's Classic
    This movie is all about character development of people who are all drastically different.This is a comming of age film for the 1980's.The acting is wonderful.It is a different style of movie.There were some really great movies comming out then.Ferris Beulers Day off, Pretty in Pink and some kind of wonderful.This is another one.It is a classic of the time period for the people comming of age durning this time.The 1980's is a time I was fond of.I do not find it tacky as the media is right now.This movie is funny.Some of these classics get refered to inother movies.You might want to watch it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars To each his own...
    This seems to be on everyone's list as the most definitive film of the 80's, that film to describe the youth of the generation and it's been hailed as the greatest high school movie ever made.Beings that I wasn't born until the year this film was released my idea of high school life finds no merit in this film whatsoever and I in no way shape or form can relate.Thus I can't agree with the above statement.

    Editorial Review

    This remastered, pan-and-scan 30th-anniversary edition of that kiddie-car caper is flawed but solid family fare. It retains a quaint charm while some of the songs--including the title tune--are quite hummable. A huge plus is Dick Van Dyke, who is extremely appealing as an eccentric inventor around the turn of the century. With nimble fingers and a unique way of looking at the world, he invents for his children a magic car that floats and flies. Or does he? The special effects are tame by today's standards, and the film is about 20 minutes too long--but its enthusiasm charms. The script was cowritten by Roald Dahl and based on the novel by Ian Fleming, best known for his James Bond adventures. Read more

    Dick Van Dyke brigns to life Caracticous Pott, an inventer whose inventions never seem to work out the way he wants. One thing I didn't realize for the longest time was the play on words in the creation of name. Take Caracticous Pott. He's a 'Crack-Pot' inventor.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Memory of the Heart
    There are just some movies that will always have a place in my heart and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one of those.I still remember when I took my children to see the original and how thrilled they were to see a car that could fly and sail the seas.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Simple Story - Simple Songs
    I can't see how this movie can compete with all the newer, more flashy kids' movies that are available. However, the story is simple and sweet and so are the songs. I bought the movie because my autistic daughter likes simple musicals which feature kids and she enjoys listening to me sing the movie's songs which are so easy to learn. There are better choices for Disney movies from this era, like Mary Poppins and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Very, very, VERY average.
    This was an excellent idea for a show. Pity about what they came up with. I don't know if they had a very small budget but the effects weren't up to much by today's standards. The storylines seemed to get weaker as the weeks went on. The acting wasn't particularly anything special, merely enough to get by. Like I said, very, very average. There was so much scope here that the writers should have been spoiled for choice, but in the end I didn't really care about any of the characters or seeing any of their situations resolved.
    5-0 out of 5 stars "An addictive non-stop suspense series"
    The series, "4400", is an addiction.Watching the first episode, you can't wait until the next and so forth.It takes turns that will surprise you and intrigue you.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Storytelling
    You needn't be a fan of science fiction to enjoy 'The 4400', because this remarkable beginning is, first and foremost, a story about people -- trying to reconnect with a life interrupted, as the saying goes.

    4-0 out of 5 stars GHOSTLY GOINGS ON
    Admittedly, there are some truly frightening scenes in this classic shocker from Steven Spielberg, who co-wrote and executive produced and acclaimed horror director Tobe Hooper.Spielberg's influence is certainly evinced in the family-oriented theme, and the attempted wholesomeness of the ghastly goings on.Hooper's flashy style helps in establishing the movie's overall creepiness.But in viewing this film some 20 years after its initial release, it almost seems to be a parody of itself and its imitations.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC HORROR FILM FOR ALL-TIME
    When "Poltergeist" was first released I found it to be an incredible film. And time has not altered the film's appeal. Some reviewers seem to think that the film is tame; however, the film has been around for quite awhile. That's like comparing classic sci-fi's from the 1950's to later films of the same genre. Each is good according to its time-period. And "Poltergeist" is no exception. Moreover, it is still a classic horror film that has held up quite admirably for the past quarter-century. The film itself is not only recommended, but belongs in everyone's DVD collection. Especially those whose taste's are of the horror genre.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Time To Scare Up A Deluxe Special Edition DVD!
    Now that DVDs are way down in price, I've ended up with literally thousands--I think.I have a tendency to resist the earlier releases, the ones that are obviously "cheapies" with no special features--I know that better editions are just around the bend for most films!But I recently had to make an exception for "Poltergeist".Now I had originally seen this film in a theater on its release.I have always considered it one of the best in its genre.I've seen it a couple of times since, but probably not at all in the last ten years (and for the record--all the sequels were terrible).

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Mother, what have you done mother?"
    `Psycho' is probably one of the most definitive films of cinema, not just horror but of pure American cinema.The acting, the direction, the plot, script...everything is utterly brilliant and can compare with today's standards and still stand out as truly inspired film.Alfred Hitchcock was probably the smartest movie-maker of his generation, and maybe even ours, for he knew how to get what he wanted with very little, to make the most of what he had and he always delivered something smart, edgy and ahead of it's time.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect film making!
    One of those films that does everything right!And it is a horror film no less!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Hitchcock's Best
    Though made in 1960, it still captivates and charms you like it was made yesterday. Well, maybe that phrase is inaccurate because if it were made yesterday, it would more than likely suck: as does most of the horror movies made.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger
    Certainly one of the great classics of alltime and proof positive that they don't make movies like this anymore! From the instant when the dazzling 3-D artdeco credits appear, we're onboard for the ride of our lives, actually the lives of hero Cary Grant (1904-86) and Eva Marie Saint. The plot of this 100 percent attention-keeper thickens as its characters sicken. Notable in the glorious cast are the handsomely ignoble James Mason (remember him? 1909-84) and ever-dapper Leo G. Carroll (who later played the ghost in the TV series Topper). Superbly angled cinema shots feature lush hotel interiors - the elegant UN - an aerial shot of ant-tiny Cary Grant in existential torment against desolate grasslands - and closeups of Mount Rushmore, which Hitchcock had dreamt of shooting, here becoming a backdrop of life-and-death drama. Of the 50-some films of Sir Hitchcock (1899-1980) I'd rate this in the top three, with Psycho and Rebecca rounding out the bases.

    4-0 out of 5 stars North By Northwest Review By John
    North By Northwest.
    4-0 out of 5 stars I don't like the way Teddy Roosevelt is looking at me.
    Cary Grant plays Roger O. Thornhill, a New York advertising executive who is mistaken for a government agent by a group of foreign spies and is pursued across the country while he looks for a way to survive.With that said, Hitchcock takes us cross-country with gorgeous landscapes and a breathtaking scene at Mount Rushmore.A scene like this would be easy to shoot now, but more difficult almost 50 years ago.And Hitchcock uses his strengths in this movie, choosing Cary Grant to play a man on the run and trying to prove his innocence before it is too late.This movie also has the classic scene of the dust cropper and the quote from a man saying, "That's funny, that plane's dustin' crops where there ain't no crops."Uh oh!This movie is in color and holds up very well almost 50 years after the release.My only complaint is that it is probably about 20 to 25 too long and has too much of that old school "hard kissing" where you think Cary Grant is hurting Eva Marie Saint instead of kissing her.But definitely worth seeing and I am glad no one has tried to remake this movie, because they would probably just mess it up. ...

    Editorial Review

    Brian Henson directs his late father's creations in the Charles Dickens classic, the best known (and most oft-filmed) Christmas story of all time. Michael Caine plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit's wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the somber tale. Or at least it starts brightly enough--the anarchic humor soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life. Michael Caine makes a wonderful Scrooge, delightfully rediscovering the meaning of life as fantastic creations from Henson's Creature Shop (developed specially for this film) take the reins as the three ghosts. While the odd mix of offbeat humor and somber drama undercuts the power of Dickens's drama, this kid-friendly retelling makes an excellent family drama that adults and children alike can enjoy.

    Vacationing in northern California, Alfred Hitchcock was struck by a story in a Santa Cruz newspaper: "Seabird Invasion Hits Coastal Homes." From this peculiar incident, and his memory of a short story by Daphne du Maurier, the master of suspense created one of his strangest and most terrifying films. Read more
