    Editorial Review

    What was in the Hatch? The cliffhanger from season one of Lost was answered in its opening sequences, only to launch into more questions as the season progressed. That's right: Just when you say "Ohhhhh," there comes another "What?" Thankfully, the show's producers sprinkle answers like tasty morsels throughout the season, ending with a whopper: What caused Oceanic Air Flight 815 to crash in the first place? As the show digs into more revelations about its inhabitant's pasts, it also devotes a good chunk to new characters (Hey, it's an island; you never know who you're going to run into.) First, there are the "Tailies," passengers from the back end of the plane who crashed on the other side of the island. Among them are the wise, God-fearing ex-drug lord Mr. Eko (standout Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje); devoted husband Bernard (Sam Anderson); psychiatrist Libby (Cynthia Watros, whose character has more than one hidden link to the other islanders); and ex-cop Ana Lucia (Michelle Rodriguez), by far the most infuriating character on the show, despite how much the writers tried to incur sympathy with her flashback. Then there are the Others, first introduced when they kidnapped Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) at the end of season one. Brutal and calculating, their agenda only became more complex when one of them (played creepily by Michael Emerson) was held hostage in the hatch and, quite handily, plays mind games on everyone's already frayed nerves. The original cast continues to battle their own skeletons, most notably Locke (Terry O'Quinn), Sun (Yunjin Kim) and Michael (Harold Perrineau), whose obsession with finding Walt takes a dangerous turn. The love triangle between Jack (Matthew Fox), Kate (Evangeline Lilly) and Sawyer (Josh Holloway), which had stalled with Sawyer's departure, heats up again in the second half. Despite the bloating cast size (knocked down by a few by season's end) Lost still does what it does best: explores the psyche of people, about whom "my life is an open book" never applies, and cracks into the social dynamics of strangers thrust into Lord of the Flies-esque situations. Is it all a science experiment? A dream? A supernatural pocket in the universe? Likely, any theory will wind up on shaky ground by the season's conclusion. But hey, that's the fun of it. This show was made for DVD, and you can pause and slow-frame to your heart's content. Just try and keep that head-spinning to a minimum. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Not Quite as Good as Season 1 But It's Still LOST!
    I think that the reason people don't like Season 2 as much as Season 1 is because you get so attached to the characters. It was quite sad when Boone bit the dust, but he had to and you'll find out.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not great
    OK. I do not love Lost but in some ways season two was slightly stronger than season one. IN season one you had a fantastic pilot and then almost no real storyline. This may also be slightly the case in season 2 at times but at least the quality of the dialogies and acting makes the interaction between the characters credible (or more credible at least). While some of the mroe intriguing things in Season 1 are not exploited at all (the monsters) there is much more emphasis on the presence of the Others, even if still very little is being explained. One thing that is somewhat tiring is that whenever one point has been clarified, there comes the next unexpected cliffhanger situation which is not allways necessary. In some ways you need to watch the whole thing in one go in order to make it satisfying since the single episodes themselves do not allways make for coherent viewing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A different focus than Season 1, but a good difference

    Best show on TV!!! Most thrilling season yet!!! Not only for men! I'm a very girly woman and I love the action and suspense of this show!

    5-0 out of 5 stars 24 made me watch TV again
    24 is superb,and so addicting. This is by far the only reason why i started watching television again and the only reason we bought the dvr, cant possible miss the show and with the dvr, i can watch the show over and over again, and skip the tv ads.
    4-0 out of 5 stars No English Subtitles / No Sale
    Love the series and have bought all previous seasons - but, as others have posted here, I sure hope there are ENGLISH SUBTITLES in the season 5 set. Otherwise, no sale. I'll borrow or rent. Why stop the English Subtitles now? If I'm on the fence on whether or not to purchase a set the English Subtitles (or lack of) is what makes my decision for me. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor ending to a great series
    I'm really surprised how many Alias fans are giving this final season decent, even glowing, reviews.I found it completely disappointing, which is especially frustrating considering the show's ongoing storyline.With Rimbaldi's "endgame", and Sydney's complicated relationships with her family and Vaughn, four years in the making, I expected a worthy ending to these stories, and was let down.The prior year's cliffhanger, with Vaughn's "I have a secret" speech and car crash, was exciting, but hinted that the show may be about to jump the shark.In it's fifth season, this proved to be the case.I won't spend a lot of time repeating other reviewers' complaints, but I agree with them completely:the new characters were miserable, and even worse, the Rimbaldi plotline that drove the series did not come to a satisfying conclusion.Alias has been one of my favorite shows, and I still think Jennifer Garner's performance as Sydney is some of the finest acting I've seen on television, but its ending just doesn't do it justice at all.I doubt I'll even buy this DVD set, which is a shame because it almost makes me regret buying the other seasons.

    2-0 out of 5 stars what a way to go....
    I hated how this season ended.Everything seemed very calculated and rushed in order to end the show, and I came out with more questions than when I first started watching Alias.There are way too many lose ends and that they didn't even attempt to explain, like at the very beginning of the season why would Vaughn refer to himself as a "bad guy" and hide his investigation from Sydney, and why is there a prophet five? Prophet five seems like the already used and abused Alliance.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Alias, like "Rambaldi", goes on forever ( in our hearts)
    As an addicted Alias fan, I can say that I have watched every episode of all five seasons (some numerous times), and I do not find some of the incongruities in season five that others have commented on.For example, how can any of us forget Sydney's tirade to Vaughan in the beginning of season 3, when she tells him that if he had been the one that had "died", she would have waited and believed?From that moment on, anything that happened to Vaughan (such as his supposed death in season 5)or Sydney could not be considered out of reach for this show.I mourned for Sydney's loss of Vaughan like anyone else, but I was not disappointed for the way it was handled.Michael Vartan could not be replaced in this show any more than John Ritter could be replaced in "Eight Rules".Yes, I found that Rachel Nichols and Balthazar Getty added little to the show, but that wasn't their fault.They were treading in shoes that could not be filled by other characters.I LOVED the SPYGRANDPA Jack moments, such as when watching his baby granddaughter (and in his usual deadpan)saying "Apparently I'm funny". David Anders "Sark" was underused in season 5 but was fabulous when he was used.He showed a glimmer of humanity after his tryst with a certain agent. Loved that! Through all the twists and turns, Alias always stayed true to the family dynamics, (skewed as they were in this show).If the show had revealed Irina or Sloane different than the way they ended up, those would have been incongruous plot twists. I absolutely recommend season 5, all seasons of Alias are by far the best of the best shows on television.You must watch them all, in order preferably!Thanks to all of you involved in Alias for providing great, high quality entertainment! ...

    Editorial Review

    The ladies of Wisteria Lane returned for a second season of high anxiety, testy relationships, and a new mystery.Susan's (Teri Hatcher) angsty on-again off-again with Mike the plumber (James Denton) took an odd twist when her ex-husband (Richard Burgi) moved in with neighborhood seductress Edie (Nicolette Sheridan), then took an even odder one.Bree (Marcia Cross) resumed her widow's relationship with George the pharmacist (Roger Bart), then descended into personal addiction.Annette's (Felicity Huffman) return to the working world turned bizarre when her husband, Tom (Doug Savant), got tired of being a house-husband and returned to the workforce… at Annette's own firm.And Gabrielle (Eva Longoria) had to cope in her own unique way with Carlos (Ricardo Chavira) in prison.Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Darker days on Wisteria Lane
    Desperate Housewives Series 1 became a hit because of it's fun off-the-wall characters, wild unpredictability, glamorous leading ladies and brilliant writing. Series 2 delivers all the strengths of Series 1 but, in all told, a somewhat darker turn. Will the series get darker or lighter in Series 3? Only time will tell.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I totally agree
    Season two is, as it is written on the cover, very juicy. For me, season two is better than the first one. There are some many twists, unexpected events and of course it's very funny and entertaining. All actors and actresses did a fantastic job, especially Marcia Cross. I like the development from Bree. In the first season she was "only" the perfect housewife and she dealt with her problem in her way. Because of all the bad events she's going trough in season two she seems more "humain", she also has a weak and sensitive side and she is struggling with her life. Lynette, Edie and Susan are still the same, but terrific of course. I also liked Gabby better in this season than in the first one. What Carlos and she are showing us is fantastic

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Show On Earth.
    From Jack waking up in the forest to him and Locke looking down the hatch, Lost Season 1 is truly the best show on TV. The acting is the best, the sepcial effects are WOW, and the writing is so amazing!!! And one thing that makes Lost stand out is the flashbacks. You learn so much about all the characters. And another thing is Lost isn't racial. It's great for everyone. It has Asian people, black people, white poeple, kids, dogs and the characters are just so cool!!! I recommend Lost to anyone that can handle suspense and gore. If you can handle that stuff you can watch Lost!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Un-Be-Liev-Able.
    If this show had been released as a 48 hour, continuous movie showing at my local sticky-floored theater- I would have paid the exorbitant sum and watched it! This show is that good.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Mega-TV comes all too well to DVD box set editions.
    Don't even read the reviews just press the buy me button and prepare to watch the whole of Season One of Lost in about two or three days. This is one hell of a way to watch Lost on DVD. Those who sat through the episodes as they aired will admit that as one of the biggest selling TV series DVD box sets in history (also see `Firefly' for similar achievements) is better than the best of science-fiction series we have seen yet still offers many norms taken, and used well, from some of the best sitcoms of the twentieth-century. It is part `ER', part `Star Trek', part `Twin Peaks', part `Gilligan's Island', a whole big bit of `Survivor' with real drama and yet totally unique in every conceivable way and form with the episode (third on this season's disc 1) `Walkabout', which is widely considered one the best television episodes for any series ever aired. Lost will catch you hook, line and sinker. This will put a stop on every other media you watch or listen to for the next couple of days. The logistics are simple. A plane travelling from Sydney to LA has veered 1000km off course and smashed into an island strewing the passengers everywhere who soon learn from a co-pilot that their rescuers are looking for them in the wrong place. When the co-pilot is hurled into the air and eaten alive by an invisible beast who stalks the island the audience comes to realize that the island is no ordinary island, and so do the survivors who set about establishing themselves and facing various challenges that befall them. Who are they and will they survive? Will the Doctor fall for the possibly dangerous freckled heroin? Will the junkie die? Who stole her baby? Where did Locke learn to use a 9mm like that? Where does the electric cable come from? What is in the underground hatch? Who are the others? Are the fish poisonous? Is it in the future? Is he psychic? Are there dinosaurs? Is he who he really says he is? Who murdered him? Are there ghosts? Is this all an experiment? These are the kind of questions that can come up in a single episode of Lost. With that said and done there is much in Lost that can be rationally explained but a whole hunk of it will leave you Lost and bewildered. It may be as painful as having a tooth extraction waiting for the answer to any of the major questions but some of the smaller ones are eventually uncovered towards the end of Season one. So expect to sit through quite a number of background history stories for the series character build-ups, that are quite well driven, although extremely odd at times.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great ending for a superlative show...
    Perfect ending for the greatest show on TV; 'nuff said!

    4-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful last hurrah
    I was throughly dissapointed by the 'real' ending to the show, the one before fans demanded more episodes.Honestly, I was a bit confused during these last 8 episodes, but in the end I was happy to have some answers and conclusions some revelations and even more Michael and Nikita (yum!). While I'm a sucker for happy endings, I knew none could really be had in Section, so these episodes stayed true to the show.The price could be a little cheaper for only 8 episodes, but with other seasons priced at $60 + what can I expect? I still don't know why they're so expensive. If your'e patient (and cheap or poor) wait for a sale, I did.This is a great series, with wonderful character developement which never really got off the ground floor. Still, devoted LFN fans cheered the show to 5 seasons. I think without even re-runs being showns, you have to buy it on DVD now to get your fix unless you taped all the eps.While S5 does die up things and give a more satisfying ending, you can actually get away with only buying season 1-4 and be happy.But the whole collection is for any real fan. Also, any episode commentary is golden.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A perfect end to the perfect show...
    This final "season," though short, was put together because fans demanded that the show be returned to the air and tie up all hte loose ends left after Season 4. And it was done beautifully. It may only be 8 episodes, but for any La Femme Nikita fans, it's a must-have.

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE OTHER GREAT ONE.......
    JACKIE GLEASON WAS THE GREAT ONE, BUT WITHOUT A DOUBT ALFRED HITCHCOCK WAS IN THE 1950'S IS MY EARLIEST MEMORY OF SUNDAY NIGHTS AT 10 PM. HITCHCOCK PRESENTS IS WITHOT MATCH WHEN IT CAME TO A FORRUNNER OF ROD SERLING AND THE TWILIGHT ZONE. HITCHCOCK'S PRICELESS DRY WIT AND CALM ENGLISH MANNER AT THE BEGINING AND END OF THE EPISODES MADE THE WATCHING ALL THE BETTER. HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANY ONE WHO LOVES A TWISTED TALE OF NOT ALWAYS SEEING IS BELIEVING. 5 STARS TO UNIVERSAL FOR THIS RELEASE IN 5 DISCS, CLEAR, CRISP, NO FREEZE UP, GLORIOUS IN B&W.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No more dual sided discs! Yea!
    The second season of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" arrives on DVD a year after the first set. I suspect Universal wanted to gage the reaction from fans before moving forward with future sets. Luckily Universal has abandoned the dual sided dual layered discs that they had many manufacturing problems with on the first season set. Instead they've opted for single sided dual layered DVDs. We get five DVDs housed in a boxed set the same size as the first (with the same cover design but with the title card in green vs. blue). As before the episodes are listed on the inside and out flaps of the cardboard holder. Unfortunately none of them list which ones were directed by Hitchcock.
    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Finally Here & It's GREAT!!!!!!!!
    Well, the long awaited DVD set of AHP is here at last. There are 39 episodes in this second season set. The 39 are as follows:

    5-0 out of 5 stars What an unexpected surprise!
    This is the movie that put Josh Hartnett on the acting map for me. His earlier works have been easy enough to avoid and consider yourself lucky if you've been able to do so. I do hope this is a transition on his part into better roles; he was entertaining. His quick-witted quips keep you laughing and help you avoid the need to wonder what on earth is going on in the movie. They fill you in due time, even though I wouldn't be surprised if you figure out the ending before it unfolds; you wouldn't be the first.
    4-0 out of 5 stars hard to believe this genre can STILL create such gems
    If you ask me, the gangster genre has of late become one of the most consistently inventive and energetic film genres today.The work of Guy Ritchie (most notably, _Snatch_) or even the plethora of Japanese yakuza films (by directors like Takashi Miike and Sabu) or one of the notable Mel Gibson movies of recent history (_Payback_) have shown that the realm of crime right now is some prime ground for quirky and interesting characters, inventive dialogue, and making movies that invent themselves along the way rather than tiresomely beat along typical paths.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a Kansas City Shuffle
    I got the chance to catch Lucky Number Slevin in theaters, and I'm glad I did. IN FACT, I was so glad, I saw it a second time. This is a great noir/mystery film surely not to be missed. Most underrated of the year for sure. There are so many things I can say, but to keep it breif, WATCH THIS MOVIE. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Girls Love Unicorns!!!
    We can all pick apart this show's second season till the cows come home.It's way too complicated, it's highly implausible and maybe even impossible at times.But here's the bottom line.It's a smart and funny show with likable, even lovable (Veronica/Wallace/Keith) characters.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Love the show, but I need my subtitles, dammit!
    I enjoyed the first season of Veronica Mars immensely, and was looking very much forward to season two.But the lack of English subtitles has prevented me from watching the season even though I bought it.As a non-native English speaker, I very often need to rely on the subtitles to follow the snappy dialogue, and while every tv series I ever bought to this point has had them they're apparently disappearing (missed them on the new Gilmore Girls dvd set as well).The choice is now limited to French or Spanish, neither of which I understand.Please, please put the English subtitles back in!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Please enter a title for your review
    I was totally looking forward to watching the second season of Veronica Mars but it turned out to be a huge disappointment. I think you really need to watch it twice to understand most of what's going on because the writing doesn't direct your attention to a lot of the things that you're supposed to take note of that become relevent later on. It's more immediately concerned with having Veronica always following dead-end leads to keep the mystery going, so by the time she actually gets on the right track you don't know what pieces of information are still relevent. Like in episode 1 when Veronica asks her dad to look up the shareholders of Boatloads Of Fun Corp, I had no idea where she got that name from or why she thought they were involved. Watching it a second time I realised that one of the athletes who was framed for drug use mentioned earlier to Veronica that the company was sueing her parents, but it didn't register as a pertinent piece of information because at the time there didn't seem to be any reason to think they were a suspect.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rejoice!! Single sided discs confirmed on this set!!
    Finally Universal has listened to the fans of this show and provided us with single sided discs for this season. After the nightmare of the season 2 box set, wherein a few episodes would stop/freeze or simply not play at all (see the Amazon reviews), they finally rectified the error of their ways. The only puzzling thing is that Universal still decided to keep the bulky snap cases instead of the slim cases for the set, which does take up a lot of room on your DVD shelf. Now if only they would re-release the first 3 sets as single discs we could all be happy that a beloved TV show is finally getting the proper DVD treatment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Have we finally reached the plateau of single-sidedness?
    I absolutely love this show, and am thrilled to own the first 3 seasons that have been released.However, I must agree with many fans of the show out there that have had problems with the double-sided discs, which Universal has, for some reason, felt they needed to use up to this point.In particular, my season 2 set sometimes won't play certain episodes, and other times it will!??I see that season 4 indicates is a 5-disc set -- which leaves me wondering -- are we finally to be given the privilege of single-sided discs???I TRULY hope so -- as do many other fans.Thank you, Universal.I am also pleased that they are releasing these season sets at a fairly decent pace.I'm excited to get this next season set!!! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still a Great Show---But too Much Catherine
    I am a faithful CSI watcher, and have been since the shows inception.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Still good, but not as ground-breaking as before
    I agree with another reviewer that they are packing in many new characters.Personally, I like Sauders very much, and I'm glad to see him in the field, instead of cooped up in the lab.Sofia is another good character, although her "departure" was so little mentioned, it was odd hearing of her "return."
    3-0 out of 5 stars Problems Lurking?
    I found Season 6 of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation to be subpar.

    1-0 out of 5 stars SEY GOO'BYE TO MUH WORTHLESS FILM!
    The first time I saw this film, age, I think, 14 or 15, I hated it.It was absolutely horrid - the acting, the music, the cinematography, everything.Then a few years later I gave it a second chance, and I thought it was pretty good, at least good enough to buy.
    5-0 out of 5 stars On DVD, yet again...
    Brian De Palma's blood soaked gangster epic is on DVD, once again.I'll say this right off the bat, if you own the previously released Special Edition of Scarface, there's no reason to run out and buy this Platinum Edition, which has an assortment of previously released extras to go along with a counter for how many times the "F" word is used and how many bullets are fired.Besides that, there's nothing here that hasn't been seen before, but if you don't already own Scarface on DVD, well then, this is worth picking up.As for the film itself, it's a bloody crime epic featuring one of Al Pacino's best, and most infamous, performances as Cuban hood turned drug kingpin Tony Montana; but chances are, you already know all that.The DVD's picture quality looks cleaner, and the "remastered and remixed" sound is crisper as well, but whether or not you want to lay down the cash for this depends on how many times you've been suckered into buying the movie.

    4-0 out of 5 stars "Say hello to my little friend!"
    `Scarface' is one of those classic films that, even though it wasn't recognized by prestigious awards ceremonies as worthy, it'll be remembered far longer than films like `Crash' and `Million Dollar Baby'.Why?Well for starters it's really what made Al Pucino famous.Sure, he was in `The Godfather' films and he was brilliant in them (the Oscar nods prove that) but to me `The Godfather' belongs to Brando, but `Scarface', not that is in all respects Al's picture, from start to finish, it belongs to Pucino.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Spike Lee's Best
    Spike hit the mark on this tense and complex thriller. The perfect bank heist, with the cops and bank officials all twirling in their tracks, except for one man, the one whose secrets are at risk. Good performances by Denzel, Jodie and cast and some nice surprises at the end. I've watched this movie twice and not been bored for a moment. Great Job!

    3-0 out of 5 stars predictable, typical Hollywood
    I saw this movie with an open mind. I was disappointed to find out that it was very predictable. There was nothing special about it. It was very low budget in the sense that it all took place at a bank. No need for exotic locations or special effects. Maybe they paid the main actors so much that they had to skimp on everything else? It was a typical Hollywood flick. Cops and robbers. Nothing new here. This is a movie you could watch while doing something else...like knitting, homework, doing your nails, etc. It certainly wasn't riveting.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Where's This Inside Man
    Inside Man is nothing without this amazing cast and without Denzel Washington leading them off it would have been ugly. Without the cast the movie is a bit predictable so it's no wonder why Denzel and Clive were in this one. Inside Man is about a bank robbery, then the rich man that owns the bank needs to get in there to get something that he wants to keep secret, this is a story that so far has low interest in it cause if someone like Peter Richards or Mike Justice were the leading actors no one would care about this movie. It gets better though when the plot thickens cause you don't exactly know what Clive and his buddies are there for, they don't want money. The tactics the robbers are using have never been seen before, like dressing all the hostages up in the same exact clothes as the robbers so the cops don't know who's who.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but not sensational
    This movie serves as a sharp reminder of how paramount it is to the success of a film to have decent writers on board. I know it may sound like an utterly trite, common-sense lesson, but the fact that this movie turned out the way it did shows that there are people out there in Hollywood who have not yet learned. This movie had a really solid cast, a big budget, and an exciting premise. And yet, from beginning to end, viewers are served up forgettable characters with poorly-developed back-stories, going through the motions in a plot that never hooks their interest. I watched the whole movie and could care less about Michael Douglas's fugitive character. This one does not measure up to the level of The Fugitive (1993). It is definitely more on par with say, U.S. Marshals (1998).
    3-0 out of 5 stars The fuzzy limit between propaganda and political fiction
    An unimaginable film that does not even give any logical explanation to anything happening on the screen. They revive the KGB to go back to the good old cold war model, but move them to Kazakhstan. Is it because the Kazakhs have built a pipeline to sell their oil to China instead of building a pipeline across Afghanistan and Iran and Irak to sell their oil to the US ? The president ot the USA is the most wanted president in the world at least by would-be terrorists and assassins. It is true that a fair number of US presidents have been assassinated or assaulted. But hasn't it always been by Americans, and even in this case it is said to be impossible without an American mole inside the secret services ? Forget it, man, the second cold war has just been declared by Hollywood. Of course the US president gets out of it unscathed. But the film becomes ridiculous when it states a sexual affair between the oldest of the security agents and the First Lady. Both ridiculous and absurd, including pictures of the sexual meeting between the two inside the First Lady's bedroom. That is really more than a mole. Why are our western countries suddenly so obsessed by heads of states and political fiction (three films and one TV series that I know of over the last three months, and I am not in the know of everything) ? Hollywood, and other western producers, would be very much inspired if they tried to take some distance from their political object if not objective. It sounds and smells too much like propaganda.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good movie
    This movie is great.It is exciting and I liked it.For the story, it is very exciting without any boring parts in it.Well done on this!For the acting, they are all good.However, the best is of course, Michael Douglas as Pete Garrison.His acting is always good and this one is no exception.For the direction, it is good because from the beginning to the end, it is all in logical way.For the visual, music and sound effects, they are all good as well.I watched this movie only on the DVD.For the DVD itself, it is simply fantastic because this movie it has a lot of special features including two movie trailers, which are good.So, this movie is simply recommended to watch. ...

Yet he is and always shall be known as the man who directed the Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars I refuse the offer
    What we have here is, basically, two, because who actually has seen or even likes the third, of the most overblown, overhyped and unjustifiably overrated American films of all time.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Dark & Delightful
    I enjoyed watching these movies so much, I wish I had bought the DVDs a long time ago. Its amazing to see how the Part-III was made 18 years after part-I was made and everything looks so continuous if you watch them together. There has been much speculation on how the events in The Godfather novel written by Mario Puzo, the book the film is based on, could be an exposé of true facts. Many believe that the character of Johnny Fontane , for instance, was based on Frank Sinatra's real life, and many of the other characters were modeled after real people. I won't go into that: frankly, I have no idea whether these voices are reliable, although the Frank Sinatra reference seems obviously quite believable.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really Wanted This!
    We have enjoyed the Godfather saga ever since it first came out in the 1970s. A young Al Pacino made his mark in this movie and we think that it was one of the roles that enabled to go as far as he has. Also, as a part of our family is from New Jersey, the period scenes of Ellis Island and New York City lets us remember what it was like growing up in that time and lets our family's new generation learn about it too. We have had the collection on VHS for some time, but the opportunity to have it on DVD was too good to pass up. The price was excellent as well, considering that it's all the movies plus the fourth DVD with the behind the scenes stuff.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Now THIS is TV!
    24 has to be the most thrilling show on TV. If you're tired of shows like Lost or Desperate Housewives, which while good, seem to take perverse pleasure in beating around the bush to the point where you want to put a brick through the screen, take a look at 24. This is how TV should be made. Sharp dialogue. Sharp Characters. Sharp action. But that's not the best of it! What's the most riveting and yet satisfying aspect of 24? The fact that something happens week in week out and, at the end of the series, instead of EVERYTHING building to a cliff-hanger with which to tease you till the start of the next season, 24 delivers the goods and resolves the entire season's storyline. What could be more satisfying? Season 4 is superb. Once you slap a disk in your DVD player, it's so difficult to turn the thing off and stop watching - you just want to keep going and going and... What greater compliment to everyone concerned in its production.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Intense
    Season Four is intense and well crafted, as are the other seasons. The writers are brilliant with the plot twists and character development.This is my all time favorite show.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Solid and effective thriller hovered of beating actuality!
    Jack Bauer is the prototype of the efficiency per excellence, he represents the new archetype of the hero of the modernity. His untiring fight against the myriads of powerful international organizations of fanatics and mercenaries who hate US and want to destroy it, infecting it with poisonous gases, bacteriological attacks or a nuclear Apocalypse.

    4-0 out of 5 stars AND HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
    This critically acclaimed series got off to a good start, with Kiefer Sutherland shouldering his complex lead role quite nicely.In watching 24's first season sequentially over a five day period, one can see that the series is really a soap opera with guns, and lots of dead bodies.The characters do some pretty stupid things, with Sutherland's daughter (a whiny Elisha Cuthbert) topping the list of dumbdoers with her Stockholm syndrome affection for a basically worthless guy who she thinks is okay because he helps her and mommy escape; but he's the one that got her in the mess in the first place.Cuthbert continues to do stupid things that eventually end up in getting more people killed and her father and mother in further danger.The disassociative amnesia plot with wife Leslie Hope is also a real hard concept to accept.Dennis Haysbert as the African/American presidential hopeful plays his role with stoic power, but his family problems tend to get tedious and repetitive, with his wife being a real pain in the buttuski (although Penny Jarold is quite good in the role).Sarah Clarke as Sutherland's sidekick Nina is quite good as is Carlos Bernard as her beau Tony.The cast overall is exceptional:Xander Berkeley, Richard Burgi, Zeljo Ivanek, even Dennis Hopper with his horrible Bulgarian accent is effective.Credit goes to the writers/directors for keeping things addictively entertaining, although the last episode is quite shocking in its revelations.All in all, 24 was a unique attempt at intelligent drama and succeeded on the most part.On to day 2, now, huh?

    4-0 out of 5 stars An instant classic
    The first season of 24 is the best, which is saying something because all of them are great.It is intense, fast paced, and not confusing like so many contemporary action shows and movies are.Do not buy this if you cannot afford to buy all of the seasons, because you will end up doing just that.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Perfect fodder for Mystery Science Theater 3000
    I purchased Season One, never having seen a single episode, on the strength of a friend's recommendation, and watched it in its entirety over the span of about ten evenings. I stuck with it only because my wife enjoyed it and I didn't want to be a spoilsport, which required that I suppress my urge to laugh out loud at the outlandish plot twists, which were many, and the cardboard characters.

    Editorial Review

    Still the tightest, sharpest, and most cynical of Hollywood's official deathless classics, bracingly tough even by post-Tarantino standards. Humphrey Bogart is Dashiell Hammett's definitive private eye, Sam Spade, struggling to keep his hard-boiled cool as the double-crosses pile up around his ankles. The plot, which dances all around the stolen Middle Eastern statuette of the title, is too baroque to try to follow, and it doesn't make a bit of difference. The dialogue, much of it lifted straight from Hammett, is delivered with whip-crack speed and sneering ferocity, as Bogie faces off against Peter Lorre and Sidney Greenstreet, fends off the duplicitous advances of Mary Astor, and roughs up a cringing "gunsel" played by Elisha Cook Jr. It's an action movie of sorts, at least by implication: the characters always seem keyed up, right on the verge of erupting into violence. This is a turning-point picture in several respects: John Huston (Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Knights of Maltese Falcon
    An excellent film all around.I'd like to see any of today's directors or actors produce all this complication in a one room setting.I also want to point out that the official Amazon review terms the title "Maltese Falcon" as a "Middle Eastern" treasure.Don't tell any Maltese that!Malta is in the western mediterranean just south of Sicily, hardly near the Middle East.Occupied for centuries by Italy, it was the site of the famous 16th century battle where a smaller contingent of Catholic European knights (9000, most of whom were common islanders) held off a huge seige by 40,000 Mulsim Turks, establishing the order of the Knights of Malta that is still an official Roman Catholic Knightly order.At the time, Spain contolled the island and Charles V gave the island to the Knights of St. John to resist the advance of the Ottoman Turks, who he feared might conquer Rome and end Christianity in Europe. A "Maltese Falcon" therefore would have been a object associated with this period and the Knights of Malta as the Wikipedia quote from below seems to prove.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Classic Piece of Film
    The Maltese Falcon is considered the first Film-Noir ever made and is a classic and highly innovative film starring Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, and Peter Lorre. The movie is #23 on The American Film Institute's Top 100 and is written and directed by John Huston. Right from the beginning of the movie I realized how many movies this thing has inspired. The first ten minutes of the film kept bringing to mind the first ten minutes of another classic film called "Chinatown." Ironically, "Chinatown" co-starred this films director John Huston. Bogart, in one of his most famous roles, plays Sam Spade, a Private detective who is hired by Brigid O'Shaughnessy (Astor) to chase away a man her sister is dating. Spade sends his partner Archer, but Archer (and the sisters' date) is killed. But Spade smells something fishy and his sense of smell is heightened when a mysterious man named Joel Cairo (Lorre) offers him $5000 dollars to find a jewel-encrusted falcon. Frequent scenes in which Sam outsmarts or outmuscles the bad guys are hilarious. The movie's final line is one of films most famous. This film doesn't evoke the same mood and tone that I associate with "film-noir" but whatever you want to call it...It's a great film. It's very entertaining, Sam Spade is one of Bogart's greatest creations (kind of the opposite of Rick, the character he would go on to play in "Casablanca"). Peter Lorre is wonderful as Cairo, although he's not quite as bugeyed as he was in the German-classic M. For another example of how good (and important) this movie is, I must mention that you can see echoes of this film in almost any detective movie that was made after it. This is a masterpiece of cinema. Don't miss it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, but what about the DVD case(s)?
    I give this five stars because the film is superb and there are some very nice special features on this new reissue - however, I have some complaints about the actual packaging of the discs. Rather than follow the route of Casablanca, Treasure of the Sierra Madre and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with the WB "cardboard" fold-out cases, which feel similar to Criterion DVDs and are higher quality, "Maltese Falcon" is just a standard DVD container with three smaller DVD cases inside - the same type of cheap, plastic DVD cases HBO began using for their DVDs of television shows a few years ago. They're the same as the "Arrested Development Season One" discs - it works for television shows because it's a bit easier to maintain, but I honestly think these are very annoying for films and they just don't appear to be as high quality as the standard WB classic reissues from the past few years.
