4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure., November 13, 2003
This review is from: Soulo (Audio CD)
While Nick Lacheys Soulo is nothing new, it is still a wonderful pop album. Recycling the same formula that proved succesful with 90 Degrees, Nick creates a fun, teen friendly pop album filled with some slick dance tunes, and romantic ballads. Highlights include the gorgeous ballads This I Swear, You're the Only Place, and On and On. They are all destined to become wedding classics. The best song on the track is Edge of Eternity. A fun midtempo track, with some of Nicks strongest vocals to date. Nick falters a bit on the uptempo tracks. A few are catchy, and a little edgier than previous material, but for the most part they come off a tad cheesy. However, the production is great, and after a few listens, they grew on me. Overall, it's nothing groundbreaking, but certainly a guilty pleasure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Huge Pink fan very disappointed!, November 11, 2003
This review is from: Try This (Audio CD)
Misunderstood is one of the best albums of the past few years, so I was highly anticipating her new album Try This. However, what was so great about Misunderstood is gone. While there are a few good songs, most notably the first 4 tracks, the rest of the album falls under the category of Pink trying to hard to prove shes a badass. While foul language doesn't offend me, she uses the "F" word in half of her songs, and I don't see the point. Yes Pink, you're angry, we get that, but lets get a little more original in our choice of words. Most of the songs lean towards rock which gets old very quick, because no song stands on it's own. They all seem to blend into one another. Pinks voice also sounds raspier and tired, and the once powerful voice which made songs like Just a Pill, Get the Party Started, and Family Portrait so amazing, sounds strained and without personality.When Pink does try to showcase her pipes on the ballad Catch Me While I'm Sleeping, she comes across as a wannabe Christina. As a huge Pink fan, I was a very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable, November 7, 2003
This review is from: Abrazar La Vida (Audio CD)
Luis Fonsi is back and sounding better than ever. If there is one thing that I can say about this remarkable talent, it's the purity in his voice. His soaring tenor comes out effortless, hitting high notes that will give you chills. This will happen quite a few times on Abraza La Vida. Stunning ballads such as Eligme and Se Supone showcase his vocals the best. Beautifully sung, with gorgoeus melodies. Other highlights include the duet La Fuerza De Mi Corazon and the uptemp Yo. There are many highlights on this new cd, and you won't regret buying this. By far his best cd to date.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't even finish it., November 6, 2003
This review is from: Hulk (Special Edition) (DVD)
The Hulk was so bad I couldn't even bring myself t finish it. After about an hr, I had enough. The trailer makes the film look so exciting, intense, and well made. However, it's a big mess. From the special effects to the acting. Eric Bana as the Hulk does a decent job, but Nick Nolte is horrendoes, and Jennifer Connelly is boring. She speaks in a whisper the whole film, and the only reason i can come up with as to why she does this, is to prove she is a serious Academy Award winning actress. The special effects are horrific. The Hulk looks so fake, and if Gollum from Lord of the Rings look real, why couldn't the Hulk. I admire Ang Lee for taking on such a project, but his comic book directing, with split screens and all are distracting. Skip the Hulk. It's a complete waste of time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Long Awaited Bway Album disappoints., November 4, 2003
While I admire Deborah's choice in choosing lesser known Broadway songs for her first Broadway Album Colored Lights, I can't help but feel something is missing. The production value is a little shotty, the arrangements are new and different but take away from the orignal making some songs unrecgonizable (I Enjoy Being a Girl suffers from this the most), and while Deborahs voice has always been more broadway than pop, her pop voice comes out a little to often, making some songs unbearable to listen to, and unfortunately when Deborah belts out a high note, she goes a little flat. The cd starts off promising with a sexy rendition of Let Me Entertain You from Gypsy, and pretty much goes down hill from there with a few bright spots along the way. Who Are You Now from Funny Girl is sung beautifully and the album closes on a high note with Anytime (I Am There) from Elegies: A Song Cycle. This is Deborahs best vocal performance I ever heard, accompanied by a piano makes it lovely to listen to. Her song Sex from Skirts is nothing memorable, and her version of On My Own should have been left off the album. I have always been a fan of Deborahs and have all of her albums, but this one is a big letdown.

2.0 out of 5 stars Charlie's Angels Full Throttle Fails., October 31, 2003
I am a huge fan of the first Charlies Angels. It was funny, exciting, clever, and Drew, Lucy, and Cameron were hilarious. However, what made the first film so much fun is completely gone in the second and it gets old real quick. The slow motion special effects, the constant giggling between the 3 girls, and the lame jokes all get annoying. Theres barely a plot, and the film just moves from one fight scene to another, so after about 20 minutes, I lost interest. Demi Moore is the only thing the film has going for it. She is evil and sexy, but is underused. I recommend seeing this film for Demi Moore only.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, October 31, 2003
This review is from: Wolves Of Wall Street (DVD)
As a fan of David Decocteaus films The Brotherhood trilogy, Voodoo Academy and others I was very excited to see Wolves of Wall Street. However, I was very disappointed. Everything that made the previous films so campy and great are completely gone. This film takes itself way to seriously. It's about a young man who gets a job on Wall Street and then is turned into a werewolf, but we never get to see any werewolves. They all remain in human form acting like werewolves. Theres no blood, no scares, nothing. There's only one scene with guys in their underwear which David has made his trademark in all of his previous films. The only thing that it has going for it is the acting. The acting is by far the best of his films, thanks in part to Elisa Donavan from Clueless and Sabrina and Eric Roberts, an acadmey award nominated actor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, wonderfully acted film., October 28, 2003
This review is from: Home Room (DVD)
If there is one movie that will be completly ignored and shouldn't be at this years Academy Awards it's Home Room. One of the most intense, heartbreaking films I have seen all year. Turning in a career making performance is Busy Phillips (Audrey of Dawson's Creek). Here she proves to be one of the best young talents today delivering an emotional performance as Alicia. Busy Phillips is the embodiment of the word versatile. She can play the crazy, outgoing, and fun Audrey on Dawsons to the angry, bitter, depressed Alicia in Home Room. She makes the film worth seeing. Erica Christenson also turns in a heartbreaking performance. Her portrayel of Deanna is so sincere and honest. The 2 have an amazing chemistry. Everyone please see this film. It's very powerful and has some of the best performances of the year.

2.0 out of 5 stars Skip it., October 28, 2003
This review is from: Leeches (DVD)
I always enoy a stupid horror movie, especially David Decocteaus films Voodoo Acadmey and the Brotherhood trilogy. However, this one is just plain bad. The leeches is the thing that ruined this movie. They are so poorly made that all it is, is someones hand in a puppet wiggling up people's body. You can actually see the persons arm! The plot was lame, about a bunch of swim jocks caught up on steroids who are attacked by giant leeches. I will advise you all to stay away, and even David Decocteau fans will be very disappointed, like I was.

4.0 out of 5 stars American Idol: The Great Holiday Classics, October 23, 2003
American Idol: The Great Holiday Classics by far surpasses any of the other American Idol collections. Taking the shows top talents this is the American Idol album to have. Each performer sounds wonderful. Clay's voice is perfectly suited for The First Noel. Tamyra Gray gives a stunning version of Silent Night. Kimberly Locke lends her sultry powerful pipes to The Christmas Song, and Justin has never sounded better on I'll Be Home For Christmas. The ensemble songs are beautifully song. The best is saved for the second disc. Kelly Clarksons O Holy Night is breathtaking and Grown Up Christmas List is lovely. I wish the album included alot more songs. 10 songs seems a little short, but overall a wonderful Christmas album.
