5.0 out of 5 stars HERCULES Still Goes the Distance, July 19, 2014
This review is from: Hercules (Gold Collection) (DVD)
HERCULES still goes the distance. I took my daughter to see this when it was released and I immediately fell in love with this Disney film. The combination of animation, story and characters is perfect. I really enjoyed the Hercules character and the song "Go the Distance." This song works and drives the narrative so well. Michael Bolton's version is probably one of the best songs he ever performed and truly complements this memorable film. It was a shame that this did not do better at the box office and is somehow overshadowed and overlooked by other Disney animated films of that era. For me, HERCULES still goes the distance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Distinctively The Doors, July 19, 2014

This review is from: Love Me Two Times (MP3 Music)
Love Me Two Times is distinctively The Doors in every sense. The sound of the lyrics, the voice the instruments has always been and continues to be so definitive to what defines The Doors. I love this song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Brown Molasses Barbecue Sauce, July 19, 2014
Bull's Eye Kansas City Style Barbecue Sauce in 18 ounce jar is an exceptional brown molasses barbecue sauce. I cook with Barbecue Sauces quite often and the taste, price and ultimate value is amazing. Actually that is quite a very good barbecue sauce when I think about it.

I have used this Barbecue Sauce in 2 of my Crock Pot recopies and have added it to my vegetarian beans as well. I highly recommended it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uninspired, Uninteresting and Unimaginative, June 9, 2014
This review is from: Devil May Care (Kindle Edition)
Despite all the rumors and pandering to Fleming enthusiasts, this book falls short of all the hype accompanying it. Really, this is not very good reading, not very good literature and not especially complimentary to the literary legacy of Ian Fleming and his creation. Kingsley Amis, Robin Wood and Raymond Benson have each done it much better and with a certain reverence to Fleming that is sorely lacking here. When the written word is so lacking, need I mention plot? Well, it is simply unimaginative and uninteresting. I did not like this book or the way it was touted in the marketplace. Uninspired is the way I would sum it up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Robert Altman Film, June 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Gingerbread Man (DVD)
THE GINGERBREAD MAN is a curious film. It has a very good premise and surreptitious storyline. However, there are a few things that keep this film from being something much greater.

After recently viewing it again, I now see that Kenneth Branagh, the main character, is actually unsympathetic and not all that bright. I think his character is just not clearly defined. He really is a blatant womanizer, but unfortunately that point is not strongly conveyed to the viewer. If it were, that would explain a lot of his behavior and the very poor judgment that he uses for such a high powered attorney that he is playing. He essentially falls for a woman, the wrong woman. That is a key plot point that is never reinforced and it is an essential one. Another, point that I see more clearly now is the credibility of some of the events. For a realistic looking film, these are blatantly obvious. How could a bunch of old vagrants and alcoholics break into a mental institution and rescue their buddy played by Robert Duval? How could someone fire a flare gun in a furious hurricane with driving winds and torrential rain from about 40 feet away and hit a man square in the back and kill him? These elements defy all credibility especially considering the tone of this film.

I very much liked this film the first time I saw it and there is a lot to recommend. The plot truly is intriguing and there are many twists and turns. The actors and there performances are very good especially those of Kenneth Branagh, Tom Berenger, Daryl Hannah and Robert Duvall.

Apocalypse Now: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Apocalypse Now: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and Mesmerizing On Its Own, June 7, 2014
This 2-Disc soundtrack of APOCALYPSE NOW is certainly a unique one. The integration of words, sounds and music is powerful and mesmerizing. This is a great companion piece to the film, but it easily stands on its own as a work of art. It is very interesting to note that there is dialogue in this soundtrack that is not heard in the film. One of the most impressive lines can only be found here. "Only the Americans could build a place like this in middle of the jungle. Only the Americans would want to." This line spoken by Martin Sheen’s Captain Willard is only found here. I watched the film several times since and that line is not in the film. That line can only be found on this soundtrack. Overall this is an incredible art form in its own and John Milius’ words, spoken by Martin Sheen, are inimitably profound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subdued Score Powerfully Integrated into WORLD WAR Z, June 7, 2014
Marco Beltrami’s unique style is integrated so effortlessly but effectively into director Marc Forster’s WORLD WAR Z. I think this is one of Marco Beltrami’s best works. This score is never intrusive. Beltrami’s score heightens the tension with a subdued power. Marco Beltrami’s contribution to WORLD WAR Z is highly memorable and certainly impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way Ahead of Its Time, June 7, 2014
This review is from: Jagged Edge (DVD)
I am not sure if filmgoers were ready for JAGGED EDGE. This is a very good film with suspense, thrills, pace, good performances and a lot of speculation as to who really committed a murder. When I went to see this I remember it was one of those word-of-mouth films that caught on and audiences found it. There are key set pieces in this film that are clues to what may have really happened. Jeff Bridges, Glenn Close and Robert Loggia are very good and make it all very believable. John Barry’s score seemed so experimental and a change of pace for him, but it really fits this film. This is a good film that has not achieved the even higher status that it deserves.

4.0 out of 5 stars YOU’RE NEXT is Interestingly Gruesome yet Intriguing, June 7, 2014
This review is from: You're Next [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
YOU’RE NEXT sure seems like a bad film, but there is something intriguing about it. It amateurishly acted and scripted, yet on repeated viewings I found the film is very well directed delivering just the right amount of suspense to keep the viewer watching. Many of the scenes are rather gruesome, but they do look very real and perhaps that is another element of this film that keeps the viewer’s attention. What and to whom will happen next? How will it all play out? Interesting stuff here in this genre.
