    3-0 out of 5 stars Kind OfA Yawner
    As a fan of Beowulf I really wanted to love this film. Turns out it was okay, and thats about it. Slow in spots, and it did not really follow the book all that much. I think "13th Warrior" did a better job than this newer film as being closer to the original story.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stunning!
    This movie is a visual masterpiece. The cinematography deserves an award.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Beowulf and Grendel
    Overall, this is a good film if you consider it as a stand-alone work concerning Dark Age Europe. Relative to the Beowulf poem/mythos, however, it takes grand creative license with the story. Essentially the story is there, but the filmmakers spend way too much time shoe-horning the fictional Selma into the story as a love interest for Beowulf. There is no such character in the original poem, and her inclusion in the film comes across as a typical Hollywood manuever (despite the fact that it's an Icelandic film) to appeal to female viewers (the few that might be watching). So much of the story is dedicated to forcing Selma into the story that the mythos as a whole suffers. Worst of all is the part where Grendel sneaks into her dwelling one night via flashback and "has his way" with her, the result of which is a half-troll/half-human child that's just perfect for the obligatory sequel-setup ending (yet another Hollywood tradition).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Another Favorite!
    As a firm fan of the 5 hour BBC 1995 P&P miniseries, I went to this movie version with some skepticism, but found that it was much better than I expected even while it seemed to lack somewhat for me in some respects. THE P&P is hard to live up to! All in all though, I enjoyed this movie version immensely and went back to see it again right away. In and of itself, it is a delightful version of the story and even compared, it stands up on its own as another interpretation and look at the characters and events of this prima Austen work. The more I watch this movie (as a pick me up at home alone or with family or friends, with my feet up and a favorite something to nibble or sip on), the more I adore it. Let's face it; we can get our P&P fix faster/easier: in 2 hours instead of 5! (I still MUST watch the 5 hour version regularly as well.) This film version has a grittier, lowlier feel (perhaps a more realistic one) at the Bennet's and beyond, plus a more opulent contrast at Pemberly and related. One key detail that impressed me greatly was how I did not like Darcy nor see any attraction to the man at the beginning (how could HE be Darcy?!), but over time, he became more and more sympathetic (even appearing a pathetic figure at times: pitifully sunk in unrequited love - which pulled fully at my feelings to cheer him on in Elizabeth's direction) and attractive as the character - and this was as it should be. The performance of this actor made me want to see more of his work (and I have since seen him do extremely well in another role as a spoiled drunken dandy in `The Way We Live Now'.) The world needs more of this type of `old fashioned' movie.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Not the 1995 version, but still very well done
    1. This movie is much better than my wife and I expected.To be sure, there are big departures from Jane Austen's book and the tale seems tailored to a modern audience.Nevertheless, we're giving this production five stars, because of its overall impact and flow.The acting and location shots are first-rate and key scenes are so beautifully done.We particularly liked the scene near the end where Elizabeth entreats her father so she might marry Mr. Darcy.She reveals how Darcy is the one who bailed out the Bennett family from Mr. Wickham's debts and also arranged for sister Lydia's marriage. This ending seems more convincing than other versions we've seen because it registers with Mr. Bennett that Darcy is the one who saved the family.If you look it up, the bail-out revelation is in the book.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect or quite as good as P&P '95, but still enjoyable and recommendable...
    I am an avid fan of the 1995 A&E/BBC version of Pride and Prejudice starring Colin Firth.And so, I had my reservations about giving this one a whirl.Most of Hollywood's literary adaptations are underdeveloped, underwhelming and downright superficial.Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow springs to mind.However, this 2005 adaptation directed by Joe Wright and adapted by Deborah Moggach, while not better than the 1995 version, is definitely more enjoyable than the bunch. (Warning: there will be more comparisons between this version and the 1995 version.So, if you're tired of reading comparisons between those two, then I suggest you skip reading this review.)The cinematography is beautiful -- the scenery and sets are a major eyeful.The film direction is one of the best I've seen.Wright has done a splendid job.The music score is also beautiful, one of the best I've heard.The wardrobe, however, is a disappointment.The gowns (more Georgian than Regency) are not appropriate for the time.Elizabeth Bennet would have never attended the Netherfield ball without wearing gloves and Caroline Bingley's sleeveless slip dress with a plunging neckline is downright anachronistic.Not only does it look too modern, a noble lady would have worn such a flimsy gown at a formal ball unless she was some sort of daring widow wanting to cause a scandal.The gowns Mrs. Bennet and Lady Catherine de Bourgh wore were at least two decades or so out of style.And I won't even comment on Judy Dench's hairstyle except for one expression: yikes!That hairdo was fashionable in the 1750s -- at least sixty years before Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice.The quality of the characterization varies from person to person. I do not like Keira Knightley's Elizabeth Bennet.Knightley does not show the right amount of sharp wit, intelligence and conflicting emotions that makes Miss Bennet one of the most endearing heroines in literature.The director concentrates more on Knightley's pretty face than on focusing on the character's complexities.This Elizabeth is too petulant and giggly for my taste.Jennifer Ehle had a better grasp of the character.I did not like Donald Sutherland as Mr. Bennet.He comes across more as a cynical, laid-back loner than the sarcastic and witty character in the book, qualities that were passed on to Elizabeth.(By the way, I found it odd that in this film Mr. Bennet and Lizzy do not have the kind of closeness and affection that is required in their roles.)Also, his imitation of an English accent is simply awful.I wish Benjamin Whitrow had been cast in this version as well.I also liked the actor who played Mr. Collins in the '95 version better than Tom Hollander.I feel Hollander was miscast for this role.The actors who played Mrs. Bennet, Jane, Mr. Bingley, Caroline Bingley, Lydia and Kitty do a good job, but somehow aren't as colorful as the ones in the 1995 miniseries.And last, but definitely not least, is Matthew Macfadyen as the dark, handsome, proud and brooding Mr. Darcy.

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

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

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Amazing documentary, but could have been even better
    This documentary is absolutely bone-chilling, really providing a powerful and honest look into how war has been waged in the modern era, demonstrating how the American public has been lied to and given propaganda in modern wars, as opposed to just giving them unbiased and truthful information and coverage, and giving the viewer an idea of how war has become more and more about imperialism and neo-Colonialism over time.It was also fascinating to note that the original words in President Eisenhower's great Farewell Address were actually "the military-industrial-congressional complex," but that he changed it so that he wouldn't alienate Congress, whom he'd gotten along pretty well with during his two terms.It's also a surprise to hear such a stinging indictment of military buildup and such a strong warning to exercise military power justly coming from someone who was a 5-star general, a career officer, and a Republican to boot.Sadly, we haven't heeded his wise parting words to us, the same way we haven't paid heed to President Washington's Farewell Address, in which he similarly warned us against getting involved in foreign entanglements and in not abusing our military strength or the nation's great ability to do good instead of evil.I've always thought Eisenhower was a lousy president (though a great general), one of my all-time least-favorite presidents, but my opinion of him was raised a bit after hearing his Farewell Address and finding out his feelings about the dangerous road the military and warfare were taking after WWII, as well as how he was against the dropping of the A-bomb on Japan.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Holy Wars Or Constant Killing For Selfish Reasons?
    This documentary is based on the Frank Capra films with the same title, "Why We Fight," which was used as propoganda in WWII to entice young American men to join the armed forces.We were displayed as being a force of imperialism and only fighting communism.However, it shows that we have been at constant war in some part of the world almost constantly since the Forties.During WWII, where Dwight Eisenhower was a five-star general, he was all for democracy (though he is a Republican), decency and victory at all costs.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Awake America and strengthen the things that remain!
    Empire building carries a cost. What will it cost America in the end? It has been noted that there seems to be a pattern where the very recognizition that an empire exists is the beginning of its collapse. May we recognize it for what it is before we have too far to fall. Once again we are haunted by the better angels of our past - men who warned us about the cost of not being vigilant.Too long we have been asleep.At last there is a wakeup call, may we not ignore it. ...

    Emma Thompson scores a double bull's-eye with this marvelous adaptation of Jane Austen's novel. Not only does Thompson turn in a strong (and gently humorous) performance as one of the Dashwood sisters--the one with "sense"--she also wrote the witty, wise screenplay. Austen's tale of 19th-century manners and morals provides a large cast with a feast of possibilities, notably Kate Winslet, in her pre-Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sense and Sensibility
    Jane Austen was so wonderful at creating reality on the printed page. She sent up society by spot-on accurate portrayals of it. I feel like stressing this point. It sends up pretension by accurately portraying it. It is humour and realism at the same time. I can think of nobody better at doing this.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A fine adaptation that will please most viewers, sans Grant
    This film looks beautiful with that particular fresh and green loveliness that typifies the gentlefolk's 18th / 19th century England. It's a delight to watch, and the screenplay itself is wonderfully done, combining the sensible and likeable characters with the truly absurd characters, not to mention those whose characters are morally enfeebled. Jane Austen's depiction of human frailty as well as goodness has always impressed me as being true and very apt, striking home not merely with insightful viewing of human beings but also the very particular aspects that define a person of English gentility in the 1800s.

With this you get 13 wonderful episodes full of knee crushing, neck breaking, and stomach smashing fun, all with the funny hosts Vic Romano and Kenny Blankenship.
    3-0 out of 5 stars American corporate censorship at its best
    MXC is great!5 stars for whit and humor and an awsomely entertaining show.But sadly after you realize how much is cut from the original (from 1 hour down to 20 mins per episode) one is filled with a lot of sadness for what one is missing.It is sad that American corporations controlling what we watch have to butcher this great show down to a mear touch of its original.Sader even so that the script writers had to pander to this to get their dream on the air.Such is the American corporate way.Such is the corporate perception of the average American intelligence level and attention span.Watching the original Japanese, or the foreign versions such as the Spanish or the uncut German versions gives one a totally different impression of the show and makes one very depressed at the 1/4 pint version available here on DVD.How I wish American versions of foreign films and shows werent so highly censored!Pretty much the same as communist censorship except this isn't the government doing it . Well over a hundred different great challenges and a similar number of shows whittled down to 30 odd games and 13 shows (albeite this is just the first season). How great would it have been to have Kenny and Vic voice over an hour for each unedited original show!I think all MXC / Takeshi's Castle fans would have raved.So zero stars for good old American corporate censorship and 5 for great humor of Vic, Kenny and the gang = 3 stars overall. ...

Whether or not the stories are pure L.M. Montgomery, this movie is true Anne. It's worth all five hours to get to the ending!

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

    Elizabeth Tudor was one of the most psychologically-complex rulers in history.Alternately ignored and embraced by a tyrannical father who had her mother judicially murdered, coming very near to her own youthful death in prison at the hands of her half-sister Queen Mary, and threatened with invasion and assassination attempts throughout her reign, she -- almost uniquely among her contemporaries -- nevertheless steered a course of moderation that brought England through one of the most tumultuous periods in its history and left it poised to begin the reach for empire that was to give England dominance over the 19th century.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Three views of the heroic in a stratified society
    Since there are over 300 reviews of this magnificent film already posted, I would like to discuss some aspects of this film that are rarely discussed. 5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe the greatest film ever made
    Seven Samurai is the greatest film made by perhaps the world's greatest film director.The string of films from Rashomon to Red Beardrepresents an almost unbroken run ofclassic films (all but one starring Toshiro Mifune), not the least for the fact that Akira Kurosawa was able to infuse humanism and populism amongst the chaos and indifference in a wide variety of settings. Individuals could make a difference in an indifferent society (Ikiru, Red Beard) or work together for a common cause (Seven, Sanjuro), while in other films the inhumanity of class culture (The Lower Depths, Stray Dog, High and Low) was laid bare.Yet at other times, it could be seen that Kurosawasoured on the idea thatsociety could change for the better in films like The Bad Sleep Well and Record of a Living Being, giving way to the chaos of Fortress of Blood and Yojimbo.But whether pessimistic or optimistic, Kurosawa's films seldom fail to both entertain and inform.

    5-0 out of 5 stars If You Have To Be Remade At Least It's Scorsese
    Having already seen "The Departed" viewing "Infernal Affairs" is something of a blessing and a curse.As superlative as "Infernal Affairs" is it ultimately suffers in comparison to Martin Scorsese's remake.Though Scorsese departs to a degree from his Asian source material his effort is deeper in characterization and he ratchets up the tension better.That said, "Infernal Affairs" is much more economical in it's storytelling and despite your familiarity with the basic premise there are enough differences between the two films to keep you on the edge of your seat.I only wish I saw "Infernal Affairs" first so I didn't have to make the ultimate comparison.Final verdict:"Infernal Affairs" is a great film but "The Departed" is a masterpiece.Of note is the inclusion of an alternate ending on the disc.The makers of "Infernal Affairs" chose the correct one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Americanized, but still great
    Just so people who have seen this movie before aren't caught by surprise, I should point out that this release (the one with the strange Asiansploitation cover art) has had some major editing done to the subtitles compared to prior releases. I'm not a native speaker of Cantonese, nor a professional translator, so I can't say if the prior version had a perfect English translation. But, this version goes too far in trying to make the movie understandable to us naive and insulated Westerners.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good acting, good story, just not terribly exciting
    I still don't get what that girl with the gun is doing on the DVD cover, it just doesn't make any sense at all.The movie is very good, but it doesn't have an exciting start, just as it didn't do anything for me at the end.Everything in between is good though.The story moves along at a good pace and keeps you involved.With how much I have heard about Tony Leung being the mole in the gang and Andy Lau being the mole within the police, I guess I was just expecting more out of this movie.I am not a big fan of Anthony Wong, in fact I hate him in many movies but this I thought was his best performance I have ever seen.He gives you that seriousness that you need in a cop drama.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Hard to get into.
    I love Jane Austen's works, and Persuasion, for me, comes next in line after Pride and Prejudice.I think the story is more gentle and you really see a transformation in Anne.The movie, however, I just didn't like.The characters weren't portrayed well and I thought the movie was boring.Anne in the movie had pretty much the same look on her face the whole movie which drove me nuts.The guy who played Capt. Wentworth i thought was too angry most of the time.I really couldn't enjoy this film because I couldn't get over the bad acting.I'd love to see Persuasion redone with hopefully a better result.My advice: read the book and skip the movie.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea, wooden acting

    4-0 out of 5 stars A beautifully subtle and genuinely emotional film
    This is clearly one of the most polarising of Jane Austen adaptations on film. Some viewers will love the genuinely moving acting, the authentically costumed characters, the beautiful scenery and sets, the incredible story-telling and the wonderfully subtle touches that abound in this film. Others will loathe the complete absence of makeup, the fact that Amanda Root is visibly older than 29, the slow and tender story, the use of natural lighting and the re-writing of the Mr Elliot sub-plot (including his unforgivably and casually cruel behaviour towards Mrs Smith).

    5-0 out of 5 stars The action is the highlight
    Mainly, the movie follows the aftermath of the very successful video game, Final Fantasy 7.If you haven't played the game, the movie will probably not make as much sense.
    5-0 out of 5 stars surprisingly good!
    I bought this on a whim and was pleasantly surprised at how good it is.The graphics are incredible and the story is true to the FFVII game - it's a far cry from the 'FF: Spirits Within' movie all the Final Fantasy gaming fans were duped into watching.

    Editorial Review

    Maverick director Michael Winterbottom wondered about the double standard of why novels can have explicit sex scenes and be legit and films could not. So his short film of a relationship based solely on sex and a love for music is the result of that thought. If the definition of a porn film is to shoot actors performing graphic sex scenes for real, then Read more

    This film is what indipendent moviemaking is all about.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Sex and Rock and Roll.
    Daring. If movies are as uninhibited as this movie is(although this cuts to the chase on the sex part as it could have more romance before sex). It reminded me of the movie "Intimacy". Sex and more sex plus Alternative rock, it can't get any better. x

    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.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not the DVD!! Crappy PSP 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.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Thanks Amazon
    I had to contact Amazon five times about this item.I ordered it on 10-1 and it didn't ship for several weeks.Then when I check my account, the description had changed to UMD for PSP.You will not get the DVD if you order this.I eventually cancelled mine.Amazon is using the wrong cover art and the wrong disc specs for this title and doesn't seem too worried about correcting this.DO NOT ORDER. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!!!
    It's funny, sweet, and sad all rolled into one.The interweaving of the stories was great.In addition to the movie, the bonus features are very interesting.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Loved it anyway
    The funny thing about this movie is that I read negative reviews here, and agree with what they assert: that the plots and characters are not very "evolved." If you disect the movie, yes this is "true."
    5-0 out of 5 stars "I really don't know clouds at all"
    This is one of my absolute favorite movies for so many reasons.While some of the story lines are simple, others will stay with you even after the movie ends.If for no other reason, watch this to see the scene of Emma Thompson in her bedroom.It's absolutely devastating.There is no other word.I've never seen such better song placement in a movie thanJoni Mitchell's, "Both Sides Now" .The extra footage of the director talking on the DVD is also very interesting.This is also one of my fave soundtracks. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars 'Where's the money. Lebowski?" - "It's uh... uh... it's down there somewhere, let me take another look. "
    I won't add to the voluminous praise that already exists in abundance on Amazon that speaks so eloquently of this film.I agree totally with everything written here stemming from a positive vibe, man.This is one of my favorite movies.Certainly my favorite Coen Brothers movie in their comedic body of work, even bypassing "Raisng Arizona" (which I think is a masterpiece as well).
    1-0 out of 5 stars The only good part of this movie is when...
    ...Tara Reid offers a certain favor for a thousand dollars. Other than that, it's a typical Coen Brothers "Look-we're-being-clever" affair. And yet the laughs are few and the "zaniness" rings hollow.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hilarious
    The main character, Lebowski, is a bum of a person living in Los Angeles who spends most of his time either doing nothing or bowling with characters played by John Goodman and Steve Buscemi. Suddenly Lebowski's life is changed when he is mistaken for another Lebowski who is much wealthier than he and who as gotten involved with a group of unsavory characters.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It seems to be perfect, except.
    The one special feature that I was hoping would be included is the music video for "The Touch." I remember recording it on beta off of some music video show that Nickelodeon had way back when and I would watch that thing over and over. I then went out and bought the soundtrack on vinyl and would play it every night before I went to sleep.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Faithful and Near Perfect DVD Release
    If you were a child during the 80s, chances are you remember the Transformers fondly. This DVD release of the franchise's big-screen effort is almost certainly the best. It features widescreen and full-frame versions of the film and a slew of fan-oriented special features.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loved this movie.
    This movie is very close to real life and what people think in thier minds when we meet each other. We all develope relationships the same way. People that won't like this movie probably aren't living life to it's fullest. Eric Balfour is also very pleasing to the eye.

    3-0 out of 5 stars There is no way this movie is Laying down with Me
    If you can get past the bone rack of a woman and Mr. Shaved Chest Hair, who seriously looks like Jimmy Hill of BBC Match of The Day fame (think Mandrake the magician), then you'll probrably enjoy this. This movie is trying to be more profound that it really is. Face facts, this is not a good porn film and not a good love story because it tries too much to be both. Basically, any movie with voice-over narration you know is in trouble because it means the story needs explanation that pictures and the actors' words cannot convey. Take away the narration and you maybe would have a half-decent fillum as then it would be left more to your own imagination as to why the woman is basically messed up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sweet, light and delightful...
    Audrey Tautou makes this film more than what it would be without her.That's not to say that the plot is mediocre but without her the film itself wouldn't have stood out.As Amelie Audrey is wonderfully delightful, a true free spirit and a classic comedic talent.When Amelie finds a hidden tin in her apartment that belonged to a previous tenant she becomes determined to return it and once she has she decides to help others around her, from her father who's always wanted to vacation but never has because of Amelie's supposed heart condition as a child, to her workmate who needs a man.She tries helping an old man in her apartment as well as a tyrant grocer's assistant.But in the end she ends up helping herself for once and everything ends up happy.It's a very sweet story that's elevated by a brilliant performance by Audrey.
