5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time!, July 20, 2006
Having grown up on this show through CBS and Syndication and being of the generation who were most likely exposed to the TV show before the comic book, I am ecstatic that they are finally giving the season by season treatment to The Incredible Hulk. I resisted the urge to buy the Ultimate Collection in the hopes that they would finally come to their senses and give this series the treatment it deserves. I didn't even know this was coming out, but was pleasantly surprised when I saw it at my local Borders and snatched it up right away. As a child I couldn't wait for the transformation each episode and watch Hulk wreak havoc, but as I've grown up I've come to appreciate the struggle of Dr. David Banner much more. The Incredible Hulk is probably my favorite TV show of all time, and it's about time they got around to releasing the entire series to DVD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Put a little a** on it!, January 21, 2004
This review is from: WWE Originals (Audio CD)
When reviewing this CD you have to take the music on face value and review it like any other album; not as a "wrestling record". To be blunt, this music sucks. Let's get real, the only positive about the CD is the "cheese factor". The lame skits with Steve Austin are a welcome break. Rikishi's track is hilarious, but the man cannot sing at all. Lita, Stacy Keibler, Trish Stratus...their songs are so bland. Jericho comes off as trying to sound too much like Ozzy Osbourne, and Rey Misterio's tune is a veritable clusterf*** of English and Spanish blended into each other. He'll start a line in Spanish then finish it in English; the end results sound like a jumble. Although I'm no fan of rap John Cena's tune is OK, but nothing spectacular. All in all this is some of the worst music ever recorded.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what Crumb wanted, November 6, 2003
R. Crumb, underground comix legend and creator of Fritz the Cat, hated this movie. One can understand why, with the one dimensional characters and lame excuse for a plot. The animation is well done, but doesn't feel like a work of Crumbs (which it is not). You are better off sticking to the comix and staying away from this movie, that way you'll get a better idea of what Fritz was meant to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easter Egg, August 24, 2002
The best wrestling dvd out there today bar none; I just wanted to reveal another easter egg.
On disc one, go to chapter selection, then to the page that has the chapters on WCW, NWO etc., and highlight the Hulk Still Rules sign to watch a Real American music video.

1.0 out of 5 stars Romay should keep her clothes on, May 12, 2002
This review is from: Lust for Frankenstein (DVD)
I have one other Jesus Franco film with Lina Romay starring in it (Ilsa/Greta/Wanda The Wicked Warden/Mad Butcher), and in it she is young and beautiful. That film was made circa 1977, and some 25+ years later here she is in Franco's Lust For Frankenstein. I don't believe anybody who buys Franco films is hoping to see a woman in her mid-50's at youngest, complete with liverspots and vericose veins, expose herself and have love scenes. Please, if you have any common sense, stay away from this movie. I wonder if the late Soledad Miranda (Franco starlette/lover who died young) would be still doing movies if she were alive.....

2.0 out of 5 stars Does not meet lofty expectations, May 5, 2002
This review is from: Ali (DVD)
After reading and hearing so many good reviews about this movie I found myself disappointed at the end of it. Will Smith doesn't even try to remotely sound like Ali, and comes off as very flat. Everything "learned" about Ali in the movie is nothing new unless your very young or have been living in a cave for the past 40 years. Also, it is diffult to believe that Smith would really stand a chance against the actors who played Liston, Foreman, Fraiser, or even Chuck Wepner. As for positives, Jamie Foxx steals every scene he's in as Drew "Bundini" Brown; but that's about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shemp Outshines Curly on this one, April 13, 2002
As has been said in previous reviews; there are five shorts on this DVD, as opposed to the usual six. Also, the short Three Little Beers has a scene edited out, when AMC shows the short in its entirety.
Other than that, the short selection on this dvd is one of the better ones, a step up from the previous release Healthy Wealthy and Dumb. Three Arabian Nuts (not shown on AMC)is definately the best short, especially with Beers having that edit. A definate classic, and almost makes you forget there are only 5 shorts on the DVD. Shemp looks great in the zoot suit. Three Dark Horses is another great short with the Stooges hired as wringer delegates; but other than the two Shemps and the edited Beers there isn't much left. Three Loan Wolves was made when Curly's health was declining, and it shows in his performance and more of a focus on Larry (happened again when Shemps health declined); but it is one of the better "children" shorts. The title short is probably the weakest, but still not bad. To sum it up, the quality is great, but the quantity is inexcusable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Fritz, December 9, 2001
This review is from: Dirty Duck (DVD)
Dirty Duck is a surprisingly funny low budget "toon porno" featuring two former members of Zappa's Mothers Of Invention and Flo and Eddie. The cultural references however, were old even when the movie came out in 1975. The movie follows Willard, a down on his luck loser [who has trouble attracting women] and the duck who's out to help him; and even includes a surprise ending. As for comparisons, this one is better than Fritz The Cat, especially since the great R. Crumb was against the Fritz movie from day one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Howard, Fine, Howard, and Howard in the Old West., May 30, 2001
This dvd includes six shorts; 2 are not shown on AMC, 4 are westerns, and 5 Shemps to 1 Curly. The one Curly, Cactus Makes Perfect, is okay, but not a classic. The other 3 westerns; Out West (Shemp's second Columbia short), Punchy Cowpunchers, and Merry Mavericks, are all great. For some reason Stooges fans tend not to like the westerns as much, but I do. Dopey Dicks is a sure classic and worth the price of the dvd alone, and Vagabond Loafers is an excellent remake of A Plumbing We Will Go. All shorts are full screen. Maybe one of these days Sony will have enough confidence in the Shemp shorts that they will put out a dvd with them and not tack on a sub-par Curly-era effort.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lennon would vomit, December 3, 2000
With just two exceptions: Red Hot Chili Peppers (I Found Out), and George Clinton (Mind Games), this cd is crap: plain and simple. People like Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Screaming Trees (yeah, I have no idea who they are either) have no business attempting to cover even Lennon's weakest songs. There are, if I am not mistaken, five big name artists on this album, The Peppers, Clinton, Carpenter, Cheap Trick, and Blues Traveler. Forgive me if I have forgotten any other big names, but I do not have my copy of the cd handy. Out of the five only the two mentioned in the first sentence do an even decent job (they do a great job, btw), and it isn't enough to carry the album. Blues Traveler's version of Imagine is just horrible, my ears bleed every time I hear Popper screech the lyrics out. Cheap Trick's Cold Turkey is tolerable at best. The rest of the album is filled with crappy covers of some of Lennon's best work from bands I have never heard of. I only wish Amazon would let you give a rating of zero stars, because even giving it one makes me feel dirty.
