    5-0 out of 5 stars MUST SEE
    Al Gore has made what is a moral issue also one that is interesting and touching.His call for us to ACT TODAY to protect our planet is so compelling no one with a heart can ignore it.Even the most selfish of human kind .... yes, yes, I mean the Bush people and all the politicians - should see they can benefit from it and hence there no reason NOT to act on it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars If you are a resident of planet earth... you need to go see this movie!
    If you're a person who can't be bothered to raise up from your "lazy-boy", put down the beer, and think for a minute... don't see this movie - because it gets you thinking, whether you like it or not. You can't NOT care about global warming. If you are informed enough about the issue, you'll know at what critical state, this little planet we call home, is in.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Average Production Quality but Good Source Material
    I just saw "Iraq for Sale" in the theater.It's the only movie I've heard of that focuses on the reconstruction in Iraq and the obscene corruption associated with it.Many people have heard of Halliburton and its subsidiary, KBR, but few people know the extent of the corruption and negligence of these and other companies.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Americentric
    I just reviewed this DVD on my blog, Robert's Virtual Soapbox. Here is the review, copied and pasted (and slighted edited) from my blog:

    Those who are apprehensive about my 4-star evaluation, do not be afraid. You'll see more on that in a bit. This film is among the most important today... Indeed, I've already invited activists to my home to see it!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Candy coated.....rushed at the end
    Pass on this one folks...unless you really have time to burn.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Great Filming/Great History But Poor Scripting
    THE NOTORIOUS BETTY PAIGE is intelligently filmed, using grainy black and white film stock that gives it a period piece feel. And, unfortunately, this is the most notable part of the entire production. Although actress Gretchen Mol does an excellent acting job (even when completely naked), the story fails simply because there's little to no understanding as to Betty's motivations.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Five star performance in three star film about pin-up Bettie Page
    In our silicon enhanced, post heroin chic pornographic society it's hard to imagine a world where pictures as tame as those shown in "The Notorious Bettie Page" would cause a scandal. They did however and this movie biography of pin-up and S&M model Bettie Page serves as a reminder of the conservative world where nude photos of natives in National Geographic were OK but not nude pictures of a white woman. Sending such pictures through the mail was a crime and it was a far different world. "Paige" captures the feeling of this world well with its black and white grainy photography but it's all surface and the film is saved by a stunning performance by Gretchen Mol as Page. She so completely invests herself in the role that when watching real footage of Page that is included as a DVD extra I felt as if it could have been Mol if not for the slight differences in the way the two looked.

    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. ...

    Editorial Review

    It begins with a solemn funeral…for a car. By the end of Chris Paine's lively and informative documentary, the idea doesn't seem quite so strange. As narrator Martin Sheen notes, "They were quiet and fast, produced no exhaust and ran without gasoline." Paine proceeds to show how this unique vehicle came into being and why General Motors ended up reclaiming its once-prized creation less than a decade later. He begins 100 years ago with the original electric car. By the 1920s, the internal-combustion engine had rendered it obsolete. By the 1980s, however, car companies started exploring alternative energy sources, like solar power. This, in turn, led to the late, great battery-powered EV1. Throughout, Paine deftly translates hard science and complex politics, such as California's Zero-Emission Vehicle Mandate, into lay person's terms (director Alex Gibney, Oscar-nominated for Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars theres still a chance to make electric cars
    is it going to help get electric cars back on the road again by making a film called who killed the electric car might get them back well maybe in the future but now wor this documentary shows us how much the people cared about them and how this could save the enviromentby not using these big trucks that spread gas.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hopefully, the Electric Car Can Be Revived...
    This movie exposed some serious problems with industry and government alike and demonstrated why we have made so little progress in reducing our dependence on oil. But it actually also exposed the general apathy that allows these problems to continue. As with the electric car, the movie itself did not generate much interest.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting, heavily biased
    Of course I'd heard of the Electric Vehicle in the same way most people had--as a sideshow prototype thing that presumably is on the roads only as a concept and driven by a scant few people.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hannah Montana
    Hello everyone, I've been reading some of the reviews that other people wrote and noticed that many of you are expecting this DVD to contain several episodes of the show. The running time on this DVD is only 91 minutes...of which you would have to subtract the interview, a never before seen episode, and some other bonus footage. So it seems pretty much impossible to have several episodes of the show (other than the bonus episode) on this DVD. I'm sure that this DVD will still be good though.

    5-0 out of 5 stars the best show ever!
    i can't wait! i love this show! i getting the cd and game too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This series will leave you speechless!
    I have always been a fan of underwater video and scuba diving, but this is absolutely the best above and underwater footage I have ever seen.There is footage here that I have never seen anywhere before.The producers of this series certainly devoted immense time and patience to capture some of the rarest events in nature.In particular, I was spellbound by the coverage of killer whale attacks.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Dazzling, Mind-Expanding
    This superb documentary contains drama that is heart wrenching --like the killer whales attacking a baby whale and the mother fighting to defend it.The deep sea chapter is stunning -- the luminous fish of the deep are more fantastic than could be imagined. Run, don't walk to get this and watch it repeatedly!

    As an older fan, I've been around Neil Young's talented musical career a long time.This dvd includes both new material and some of the old favorites my generation knows well.This was a very well developed dvd, well shot and produced, done in a historical old buidling (the old Opry house in Nashville, TN) with an excellent compilation of musicians, who have been associated with Mr. Young for many years.Besides the music, which I thoroughly enjoyed, the commentary by Mr. Young and his associates was a pleasure to hear and enjoy as well.I found the second dvd very interesting and informative.It was also very touching to see Ms. Pegi Young on stage with her husband participating in the musical work.Truly one of the best entertainment dvds I've seen and own and will continue to enjoy, from time to time.PS - my best to their daughter who has probably finished with college by now since this production was done in August 2005.Nice job, Neil....I enjoy your style! ...

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

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

    5-0 out of 5 stars Deliriously wonderful film
    First up, I am not into ballet, or at least not very much.It's never been an artform that has grabbed me, with occasional exceptions.However, this documentary is one of the most beautiful, charming, witty and moving films I have ever seen (and I'm old, so that says a lot).The performers - some of them now in their 90's and still hale - are remarkable, and the ease with which the filmmaker moves through the history of these amazing two companies of artists is a joy to behold.I saw this on a whim in the theater when it first came out; I laughed at some of the dancers' memories, cried at the sheer beauty of the historic footage, and came out feeling wonderful about life and the magic that is performance art at its very best.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Superlative Insight and History of the Ballet Russes
    Once in a while a documentary sheds such inner light on the subject matter and the characters that it becomes an art film, a story, a novel, a memento.Such is the case with BALLET RUSSES.This tender, touching, humorous, and exactingly real look at the history of ballet in the hands of the expatriated Russians in Europe in the early part of the 20th century to the reformation of the troop after the death in 1929 by master Impresario Diaghilevunfolds through the words and movements of those who experienced it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Program
    I got this DVD after reading dozens of glowing reviews. Now that I've used it, I am thrilled to have this DVD in my collection. The tests set up in such an intuitive manner, with helpful instructions on how to use each one. A complete walk-through takes you through the basic adjustments in detail. I was amazed at how out-of-line the picture on my television really was!The difference now is amazing!5 stars for this amazing program!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful tool - Had my system tuned up under an hour
    The tools on the CD are easy to navigate and the tones and patterns were extremely helpful in fixing some out of phase errors and channel balancing. I was suprised about how much better my system sounded after using these tools. Well worth the $$.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An interesting and entertaining portrait of an unpretentious architect...
    Ironically Sydney Pollack's warm, intelligent portrait of his longtime friend, architect Frank Gehry, is probably the best film he's made in years. Casually recording Gehry at work and while driving, and outside the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles while it is still under construction, Pollack has made an intimate documentary of an architect who over the years has revolutionized how we see buildings, steadily redefining our relationship between space and light.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Good to a point
    I know what you're thinking: "Oh, God. A movie about architecture." Stick with me though, okay? This isn't so much a movie about architecture as it is a movie about an artist and the creative process.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Pollack on Gehry: An Intimate Dialogue Between Friends Yields True Insight Into the Architecture Icon
    Even though I have since seen the Experience Music Project in Seattle and the Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago, I was first taken by Frank Gehry's work when I accidentally came upon the eye-catching "Fred and Ginger" building in Prague in 1999, an eccentric juxtaposition of a cylindrical concrete building and a free-flowing glass tower that does indeed look like the classic dancing pair. Director Sydney Pollack has taken time out of his commercial filmmaking to make a mostly winning documentary about his close friend, the world-renowned architect. It's a warm and low-key look at Gehry's creative process which obviously parallels Pollack's own. In fact, the film is structured as an intimate conversation between the two and the joy of the film comes from the unexpected revelations that only happen between friends, in particular, how Gehry broke with tradition at an early age to design wildly original buildings that people either abhor or revere.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A clear understanding as to why Enron fell
    I am a CPA & I watched the film in an ethics class we are required to take, essentially because of the fall of Enron. I have since bought the video & watched it at least 5 other times. Of course there are political slants. For example, they try & tie the Bush administration(s)(Sr. & Jr.) to Enron. But, the majority of the film deals with what happened to Enron, so that in the end, the stock you purchased was worth $0. I would highly recommend any person interested in business or the fraud aspect in business to watch this documentary. A riveting documentary on the rise & fall of Enron & who the major players in Enron were.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Evil That Men Do
    Kenneth Lay and his cohorts were looking to make millions not for the company but for themselves. They took advantage of the investors, the employees and the public. They knew what they were doing and were stopping at nothing to get what they wanted. The chips came crashing down when speculation from a Fortune magazine writer saw that the financial figures didn't add up. Skilling knew that the company was facing severe trouble if it were found that they were tampering with numbers and taking millions from the corporation. Enron fell hard like the World Trade Center when it was reported that its earnings were dropping like flies and bankruptcy was the ultimate demise.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Ugly Face of Greed...
    At first, I wasn't too keen on seeing this movie- Its title, ENRON-THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM- suggested to me that it would be about a bunch of smart guys number crunching on their way to faking accounting records.What else would a bunch of 'smart guys' do?

    3-0 out of 5 stars I was a little cool to this one...
    I didn't love this one.I expected a sceneramic sensation.No plot, no big story.Just a beautiful film.It was lovely, but not interesting.I would not recommend this one.
    5-0 out of 5 stars my kids love it
    My six year old boy and four year old girl love this movie.They have watched it three times in the last 24 hours.They also watched the special features.Us parents loved it too.The several hours of special features are great on there own and the movie is excellent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GRACE BEAUTY AND LOVE
    In its original foreigntheatrical release, MARCH OF THE PENGIUNS was a French film with a soundtrack that voiced the first-person feelings and thoughts of the titular birds.For U.S. release, it was wisely re-cut and a new, simpler audio track with a poetic narration by Morgan Freeman was recorded.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For what it is --a darned good film
    For all those reviewers here yearning for a comprehensive Oscar-winning documentary, knowing darned well this was just clips from Stewarts's home movies, get a life! This is not that movie!! Talk to Scorcese about what you want, and quit yer whining.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Drummer. Amateur Filmmaker.
    Stewart Copeland is the best rock-reggae drummer ever. Unfortunately, he's not a very good cinematographer. This movie starts out strong propelled by Stewart's narration. Towards the end however, the film loses interest. The general crappiness of the video and audio starts to weigh the film down around Ghost In The Machine. When he stops speaking, it really bogs down.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary on The Police
    This is a great documentary that shows the history of The Police as seen through the lens of Stewart Copeland's Super 8 camera.Every Police Fan needs to get this DVD!I hope they release "Police Around the World" on DVD too. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Global Images of Life and Death
    "Baraka" is essentially a series of images from around the world set to ambient sounds/music. Myself, I enjoyed the fast-motion, rat-raced city scenes and their symbolism; also some of the nature scenes from the Galapagos Islands and elsewhere. But much of the rest of it I found to be strange and even creepy.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Movie with a Message
    I think that Baraka is wonderfully filmed and the images and soundtrack blend together seamlessly. That said, though the images of people's inhumanity to each other are disturbing, what I did not care for is that most of the strongly positive images are of people praying, meditating or involved in some other religious activity, though it goes to the trouble to include all belief systems. Thus, the movie, not so subtly implies that faith is the answer to people's troubles, which a more secular viewer might tend to disagree with. It would have been more interesting if the images were more random and not put together to make a statement and able to let each viewer take away something else from it, as many of the classic experimental films did. Also the score tends to be somewhat new agey. Koyanaqaatsi, though certainly a message movie as well, had a driving electronic score by Philip Glass that held up on its own. However, for the imagery and cinematic experience that can be reproduced in your own living room I would reccomend this film

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Gift of Heaven!
    This film has surpassed all my expectations. I don't find words big enough to describe it. To begin with, the technical quality. It's the best-quality DVD that I have seen in my life. This is not just a film, it's an art work and it has merited to get all the Oscars of the movie world that are available. The filmmaker combined all the qualities to make out of a documentary a truly divine creation. The content of most of the film is poetic. Many shots show religious rituals. And there's one scene that really stands out: the dancing derviches.

    Editorial Review

    This first movie from the Discovery Channel favorite opens with a plot of international intrigue over a downed satellite, but within four minutes Steve Irwin is belly flopping after a baby croc on the outback floor. Steve and his nerves-of-steel sidekick wife, Terri, are asked to relocate a cattle-chomping crocodile before it's shot by a local rancher. This same reptile happened to swallow the intelligence-gathering device that fell to earth, and so begins the goofball premise of this lark of a movie. The feds believe the Irwins are appropriating their classified info, and the Irwins think they're running from poachers. Quibblers may object to Irwin's frequent interruptions to introduce a bird-eating spider or paw through croc dung, but Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Epitaph To The Life of the Crocodile Hunter
    I only saw Steve Irwin's show a few times.I saw him a few times on the talk show circuit and found him an engaging personality.Unfortunately, I was drawn to this film by Steve's untimely passing.I was hesitant to view it for two reasons.I didn't want to dislike this film.I also didn't want to praise this film effusely because of Steve's death.Fortunately, this is a terrific family film.The best part of the film is that Steve is an engagingly energetic cheerleader for wildlife.Not only is Steve witty but he is incredibly knowledgable about the wild kingdom.I'm not a viewer of the Discovery Channel but I was on the edge of my seat as Steve relates the lifestyles of varied creatures.Steve's wife, Terri, makes for a fetching sidekick.The only drawback to the film are lesser stories about the CIA trying to intercept a missing black box in the Outback and a portly female rancher trying to bag a crocodile whose been devouring her livestock.These story threads, however, are ultimately woven into the story for a satisfying conclusion.If you have reservations about viewing this film because it may make you sad never fear.Ultimately, "Crocodile Hunter-Collision Course" is a celebration of a rich and full life and that will bring on a smile.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful way to remember the legendary Steve Irwin
    If you were a fan of the late, great Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, then Collision Course is a must-have for your collection. The movie isn't bad...not the best movie ever, but it's certainly entertaining enough, and if you enjoyed watching Irwin's shows, you'll have fun with this movie. Perhaps the best part is all the special features on the disc. There are several documentaries and deleted scenes that are just terrific and yet another way to immortalize Steve Irwin forever. Kids will no doubt appreciate this film too, and I don't think a single profanity is ever uttered in it. The price Amazon lists it for is decent, but I found mine shockingly enough right after Steve Irwin died in the $5.50 bin at Wal-Mart. Definitely a steal at that price! With Collision Course, you have a wonderful memento of the Steve Irwin we all loved so much. Enjoy!
