    Editorial Review

    This lovely, 1991 adaptation of Elizabeth Von Arnim's novel has a superb cast and a tone so mellow you can feel your pulse get slower. Josie Lawrence and Miranda Richardson play a pair of unhappily married women who rent an Italian villa for a month, sharing the rent with a crusty Englishwoman (Joan Plowright) and a lonely aristocrat (Polly Walker). Sun, rest, sinking into the green grass for long naps--they all have a soulful effect on the quartet, and then on the men in their lives who make a surprise visit. Mike Newell (Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this movie!
    What I'd like to know is WHY ISN'T IT ON DVD YET?I see all kinds of stupid movies, old movies, boring movies coming out all the time.Why does it take so long for the good ones to come out?I don't get it.If it ever does come out on DVD I would highly recommend that you watch it--you will not be disappointed!I rank it up there with my other favorite movies like A&E's Pride & Prejudice, Persuasion, Jane Eyre, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Sound of Music, First Churchills, Meet me in St. Louis, Anne of Green Gables, well, you get the picture.Those are all different categories than Enchanted April, but it is one of the greats in my opinion!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, life-affirming movie!
    I can't surpass all the past reviewers in praising this film.Just see it - a wonderful and beautiful movie!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Help demand DVD release NOW
    In a review below, Tim Brain addresses an open letter to the DVD Release Coordinator at Paramount Studios.What a great idea. If everyone reading this would write a letter to Paramount and request the release of this superb film on DVD maybe we could get somewhere or at least an answer as to why it is STILL not available. Can we all join forces to help get this movie out.

    Editorial Review

    Not an ideal choice for younger kids, this hip and violent animated feature from Disney was nevertheless a huge smash in theaters and on video, and it continues to enjoy life in an acclaimed Broadway production. The story finds a lion cub, son of a king, sent into exile after his father is sabotaged by a rivalrous uncle. The little hero finds his way into the "circle of life" with some new friends and eventually comes back to reclaim his proper place. Characters are very strong, vocal performances by the likes of Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, and Whoopi Goldberg are terrific, the jokes are aimed as much (if not more) at adults than kids, the animation is sometimes breathtaking, and the music is more palatable than in many Disney features. But be cautious: this is too intense for the Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Monarchies tend to create dysfunctional families.
    Disney's "The Lion King" is a pretty good movie about a young lion cub, named Simba, who is to become king of a place called Pride Rock located in the appropriately named Pride Lands. I always thought that the part where Simba's father, Mufasa, is killed by his brother, Scar, was kind of tough to watch. On the other hand, from a historical standpoint, scenarios like these were at some point a commoplace reality, all because of an intense desire for power. The most memorable part of the film is the scene where Scar turns on the hyenas, to whom he'd referred as the "real enemy," then tries to make up with them right afterwards by calling them his "friends." The best part was the subsequent reaction by the hyenas to his double crossing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars il'd love to give this 20 out of 5 stars
    this movie was incredable. i don't understand how people can dislike this film. this movie's deep and intense story made it great for children AND their parents, a feat rarely accomplished. but rather than stay depressing and traumatizing, this film goes from drama to side-splitting humor within 13 seconds. the best part is that this is all done with seemless perfection.
    1-0 out of 5 stars dont mess with classics
    I give the original 5 stars, but why is disney taking all its classics and adding new songs to it? i was so dissapointed when i rented this and there were new scenes in it. i dont want "new and improved" i want the original, the one i watched when i was younger. ... Read more

    who ever tries to say that disney is just in it for the money is stupid, and doesnt really know what they r talking about. like on one of the comments it said that melody had no mermaid traits, that she could hold her breath for up to and over 3 min., could talk to the fish, and could hold her eyes open under the water,well...DUH!!! those r mermaid traits, so i dont know wat they were thinking, and its a disney movie, for littler kids, they try to make it interesting in the kids eyes!!!so grrr! the first one i must say was better, but i still love the sequal!!

    You know those sequels that are even better than the original?The Little Mermaid II is not one of them.You know those sequels that are thrown together and so bad that they leave an awful taste in your mouth, even regarding the original?It is not one of those either.What this movie is is lovingly crafted, well-thought out, and a nice effort.

FAT KID,SEAN,ROODY,PATRICK,EUGENE,SCARY GERMAN GUY and the rest of the gang are ok, they are still alive on EBAY so buy it fast."BECAUSE THE DEAD TRAVELS SO FAST" I have bought it from ebay already. It's a good dvd, and there are no comercials or and mess ups skippings.It all depends on what it looks like on the dvd cover and the description the seller tells you about.But just be carefull, and its really cheap, the one I bought was only $10.00 dollars.So there ya go, not only a cure for Wolfman was found buta cure for the monster lovers in your lives. I just want to warn you, thou, if you get it off Ebay, you will have the movie on dvd, but don't expect any special features, its just the movie, it'clear and its good as new but its better then nuthen.

    Editorial Review

    From the moment that Prince Eric's ship emerged from the fog in the opening credits it was apparent that Disney had somehow, suddenly recaptured that "magic" that had been dormant for thirty years. In the tale of a headstrong young mermaid who yearns to "spend a day, warm on the sand," Ariel trades her voice to Ursula, the Sea Witch (classically voiced by Pat Carroll), for a pair of legs. Ariel can only succeed if she receives true love's kiss in a few day's time and she needs all the help she can from a singing crab named Sebastian, a loudmouth seagull, and a flounder. The lyrics and music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken are top form: witty and relevant, and they advance the story (go on, hum a few bars of "Under the Sea"). Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Disney's Finest Achievements!
    In a wonderful kingdom under the sea lives the beautiful mermaid princess, Ariel, seventh and youngest daughter of King Triton, ruler of Atlantica. Ariel's feisty spirit and gorgeous red hair make her a bit of a favorite among Triton's daughters, and her passion for learning human ways and collecting of their artifacts causes much stress to her family and friends. After spying a handsome, young, human prince aboard a ship one evening and saving his life, Ariel is instantly love-struck, and this is completely unacceptable to her overbearing, human-hating father. In a desperate and rebellious action, Ariel turns to a seductive sea witch for help, who takes possession of Ariel's beautiful voice in exchange for a magical spell. The spell changes Ariel's fish-like tail into a lovely pair of human legs, but there is a condition attached. If Ariel can't get the young prince to fall in love with her in three days and seal it with a kiss, the spell will be broken and Ariel will join the witch Ursula's collection of hideously transformed victims. Luckily, the prince is in love with her already, though he doesn't know it. Prince Eric is obsessed with finding the young lady who saved him from drowning that night and whom he caught a glimpse of as she sang to him just before disappearing. When he takes in the now human Ariel after she appears seemingly washed up from a shipwreck, her inability to speak makes him sure she is not the one. Voiceless and only left with her beauty and exuberant charm, Ariel and her animal friends must try their best to make the prince see that she is the lost love he has been searching for, but the Sea Witch will do all she can to stop them before time runs out! If Ursula holds power over Princess Ariel, the king himself will have to bow down before her!

    It's so wonderful to live in a time when Disney's strange behavior of taking their classics off the market can be circumvented by great Internet marketers like Amazon. I was able to buy this 5 Star Disney Princess classic recently for my young princess through one of Amazon's third-party sellers. And without that opportunity, my little princess may have outgrown Snow White by the time Disney released it again.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Sleeping Beauty Awakens!
    This DVD changed my opinion of Disney's Sleeping Beauty.Since the story has been summarized elsewhere, my review will focus mainly on the DVD itself.I had never been much of a fan previously and viewed this as a sort of Snow White and Cinderella also-ran, although I did love the gorgeous, sweeping adaption of Tchaikovsky's ballet, with "I wonder" and especially "Once Upon a Dream" being among Disney's finest and most transportative musical pieces.The difference between this and prior releases of Sleeping Beauty (indeed, of many Disney movies) is that the digital restoration truly enhances the film possibly beyond what, as one reviewer put it, may actually have been experienced by the original theatrical audience.
    5-0 out of 5 stars This movie is excellent.
    One thing I most love about this movie, is the music. Slepping Beauty has songs from the ballet. I watch this movie whenever I can. It has brilliant animation, brilliant songs and brilliant characters, especially princess Aurora, my favourite Disney Princess. I highly recommand this movie. ... Read more

    Tom Keogh's Editorial Review of this delightful move does it a huge injustice, and if you take his word for it, does you one as well. That isn't to say the movie is for everyone. But if, for example, you, like me, are a fan of Northern Exposure, you'll feel right at home with these quirky, loveable, soulful characters. This is Steinbeck light, Steinbeck with a wink. It's part nostalgic remembrance of northern California before its gentrification, part romance, part surreal comedy. This is NOT the dark and brooding Grapes of Wrath, John Ford's masterpiece. It's less a meal than an appetizer that leavesyou wanting more. Nick Nolte and Debra Winger are young and wonderful, but the whole cast is superb.

    Light years before political correctness--1983 to be exact--or his comeback in tame Disney comedies, Eddie Murphy was a charismatic, wonderfully offensive, egocentric 22-year-old black comedian known for crude celebrity impersonations and often shockingly frank diatribes on racial and sexual politics. Dressed in a skin-tight red leather suit and delivering endless streams of obscenities faster than Richard Pryor ever did, Murphy is captured in this raunchy HBO special (a filmed document of his Grammy-winning album, Read more

    Back in 1985 when my parents first got a VCR, the first tape they gave us was something a friend of theirs dubbed with Eddie Murphy Delirious, Purple Rain and the making of Thriller on it.They had no idea that 2/3 of the tape was inappropriate for children and we watched it many times before they discovered.I will always remember laughing till I cried about Aunt Bunny falling down the stairs, the ice cream song and Eddie imitating Richard Pryor while saying "Have a coke and a smile and shut the @#%* up!"

    As a former tour player now out of the game, this film captures alot of what the PGA tour used to be.The race to "Monday Qualifiers" by what we were referred to as "rabbits" was filled with alot of the shenanigans this movie portrays. I'm sure the PGA wasn't especially thrilled with the movie, but this system produced greats like Trevino, Rodriguez, and many more.Would love to see this movie out in DVD (haven't owned a VCR in years)soon!As per other reviews, B movie with great content and storyline.

    Barbra Streisand made her directorial debut with this 1983 adaptation of the Isaac Bashevis Singer story about a young Eastern European woman (Streisand) who disguises herself as a male at the turn of the century in order to get an education. Except for an excessive musical score with too many songs and Streisand's tiresome tendency to play characters who suppress their beauty, the film is crisp and engaging, and the gender-bending love story complications are fun, if gimmicky. Streisand gives a smart, vulnerable performance and gets fresh work from costars Mandy Patinkin and Amy Irving.Read more

    This is one of my favorite movies. It is a very interesting and moving picture and also very funny in some parts (Anshel's first night of wedded bliss with Hadass comes to mind.) Barbra Streisand was so talented in "Yentl." But I think Mandy Patinkin was just as entertaining, maybe more because the character of Avigdor was so multifaceted. They worked so well together.

    Crossing Delancey is one of the most intelligent, sweet, REAL love stories ever. Made a Peter Riegert fan of me... he makes all the "pretty boy" protagonists look shallow and plastic.I have given away two copies of the VHS version, and am rapidly wearing out the third.I can see a definite need for a DVD.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Must Release DVD
    This movie has You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle beat, without a doubt. (While You've Got Mail was fine, Sleepless in Seattle was rather contrived, with wall-to-wall romantic music, which for me made it not at all appealing, as much as I like Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get Thee To DVD At Once!
    DVD please? I saw this movie when it aired on A&E, and it captivated me as a child, and still does as an adult. The theme song is great, and I still find myself listening to it!!! I became a fan of Sandra Dee's after I saw her in "Gidget" and "Imitation Of Life" and I thought her performance was so real and heart-wrenching. Constance Ford, as her bitchy,controlling mother Helen, gives a strong portrayal of a bitter, frigid, unhappy woman who takes her anguish out on everyone around her, even her daughter. (She really gives Mommie Dearest a run for her money). The scene where she forces Molly to submit to a pelvic exam after she and lover-boy Johnny (the late Troy Donahue) have an accident on the beach (the boat capsizes) is horrible and makes the viewer grimace. The fact that the doctor was old and gross looking, and began to unbutton Molly's blouse without her consent, as she screamed, "Oh please, no, I want my father! I've been a good girl! I haven't done anything wrong!!" makes it uncomfortable, but it also makes you despise Ford's character, as I'm sure that was the intention. Richard Egan as Molly's father Ken, is so handsome and gentle at times (he was equally effective in Walt Disney's "Pollyanna" as Dr. Chilton) is a man who is trapped in a loveless marriage who finds and falls in love again with Dorothy McGuire, as Sylvia, his first love, who also happens to be the mother of Molly's boyfriend, Johnny!!! One of Egan's best lines is as he and Helen are having an explosive argument. Ken finishes off his end by saying, "Why must you insist on making sex itself a filthy word!" Arthur Kennedy, as Johnny's drunken father Bart was one of the actor's best later performances. The conflict between the two couples and the predicament that follows (Molly becomes pregnant by Johnny) was considered racy for its day, but considering how little is shown, you have to wonder what all the fuss was about!!! (Although the "King Kong" reference could bear some debate on that subject). The argument between Molly and her mother at the beginning of the movie, sums up the times and also, in a way, the relationships between mothers and daughters. Molly: "Daddy, do I have to?" Ken: "Do you have to what?" Molly: "Wear this middy blouse to shore like a twelve-year-old! And she says I have to wear this armor-padded bra to flattenme out and a girdle! This thing even hurts, and I couldn't squeeze into this girdle with dynamite!"

    Who has the rights to this film-for what reason is it not allowed to be offered as an DVD ??
    5-0 out of 5 stars Like a good novel and is on DVD
    This is a fine film, satisfying like a good novel. A bit like Peyton Place in its own way, except that the focus is on two couples and their offspring rather than a whole community. Good news - it is available on DVD from www.thesmallscreen.org.Happy watching. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Was that the Boogeyman?" "As a Matter of Fact it Was..."
    I remember as fifteen year old teenager, sneaking into my local theatre for a showing of John Carpenter's now classic, horror film, "Halloween". I'll never forget, that long walk home afterwords, looking over my shoulder with a shudder, imagining 'the Shape'/Michael Myers suddenly appearing behind the bare trees. Now over twenty-five years later with 'All Hollow's Eve' fast approaching, I thought I'd buy this movieand see if it still retains it power to scare or if merely came off a a corny/campy 'genre' film of my youth. Well, I have got to tell you, after a late night viewing, that this movie retains it's status as a horror classic and it's still scary as anything! What makes this movie so good ? For one, director/writer, John Carpenter sets this movie in a normal any-town, suburbia. We can see ourselves in this town of picket fences and tree line streets with middle income suburban family houses. Two, the main characters are pretty well written. The three teenage girls are not just faceless victims. Carpenter spends the first half of the film introducing us to these characters and letting us get to know them. They are like any other average teenage girls. They joke around, boast, laugh, fight and gossip with each other. The acting is a step above most horror films. Jamie Lee Curtis gives an especially effective lead performance in her film debut. Third, mood seems to be everything in this film. The majority of the time is spent at night. Cinematographer/Director of Photography, Dean Cundey bathes the film in the pitch blackness of night and highlights it with errie, autumn colors. The few day scenes are almost grimey. Daylight is just a prelude (or set-up) for what is to come. Cundey's use of light in the darkness, highlights the chilling details within the scenes (just look at the scene of Jamie Lee Curtis standing next to an open, pitch-black closet, when all of a sudden Michael's masked face suddenly, ghostly appears out of nowhere). Mood is also set with Carpenter's now classic, electronic, musical score. If there is one thing that gives me goose bumps about this film is that persistant theme music! Finally, this is a film, where less is more. We actually see and know very little about the killer. He is presented as an almost supenatural force of nature. Aside from the opening backflash scene and an over the top desription from Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence), we know very little about him or his motivations. The viewer only briefly sees parts of his masked face in the darkness. We see his hulking form in blurry, long shots. But not until the end, do we actually get a good look at him. He is the unknown and we are all frightened by the unknown. This is just a great, classic horror film! After all these years it still retains it's power to just scare! Highly recommended!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Question not a comment
    Does this 25th anniversary edition have the scene when P.J. Soles' character Lynda comes over to Laurie's house to borrow the blouse?

    1-0 out of 5 stars Boo!
    It wasn't a bad movie except for all the killing. How about a nice movie where people just get along? Instead, this crazy michael myers guy runs around killing all the teenie weeners and ruins halloween for everyone. This character totally ruined the movie. Pleasent Donald demonstrated some good acting but I had a hard time telling him apart from that buttugly Jamie Lee Curtis. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Indian Love Call Classic
    If ever a film deserved the label "classic romance," Rose Marie is the one.It starts out kinda slow, but gradually builds to a heartwrenching climax. Marie de Flor (Jeanette MacDonald) is an opera star who learns her brother, John Flower (James Stewart) has escaped from prison, allegedly killing a Canadian Royal Mounted Police in the process, and is in hiding.De Flor hires an Indian guide to take her tohim.Along the way into the Canadian wilderness, she meets up with Sgt. Bruce (Nelson Eddy),the Mounty tracking down her brother.She starts to give him a false name, "Rose . . ." but he recognizes her as a star, and assumes her full name is Rose Marie de Flor.Sgt. Bruce is immediately attracted to de Flor, but before long he guesses her relationship Flower, his prey. It's one of the all time classic dilemmatic situations as love develops between the two, who are each using the other to their own, opposite ends. De Flor depends on Bruceto survive the rugged trek through the wilderness, not knowing how much he knows; he expects her to lead him to her brother, while pretending to be along to protect her.I don't think it's ever been done more effectively, with "Indian Love Call" adding a haunting effect all the while.The cast also includes Reginald Owen, Alan Mowbray, Una O'Connor, and David Niven in an early, one scene, bit part.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Poignant and haunting...
    There is poignancy at the heart of this movie.It's a love story and love comes at a high price.Rose Marie, like many Eddy-MacDonald films, is filled with love and loss, yearning and sacrifice.The final scene of Rose Marie demonstrates these characteristics perhaps better than any of their other movies.This is a fine film, but it is dated and should be viewed in the context of its time.There are laughs, romance, bittersweet moments and beautiful, heart-felt singing.The MacDonald-Eddy chemistry is magical. This is a movie that should not be overlooked or forgotten.It will stay with you after you've seen it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Entertainment at its best
    Rose Marie has it all. Wonderful music, a great story. Good clean entertainment. As for acting, this is Jeanette's and Nelson's best. It is also the first movie Jimmy Stewart was in.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Why no DVD of this fabulous film?
    I keep looking for Alice to be released on DVD.I have given the VHS as a gift twice and still have a much watched copy for myself.Get out the kleenex for this wonderful story.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great!
    A friend mentioned this movie to me.I had never heard of it, but was glad to be able to find it at my library.After watching it and loving it, I was thrilled when I found a used VHS copy in a second hand shop.This is one of those movies that can be pulled out and watched at least every year.I first viewed it over the course of four evenings and each time, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen with Jean and Joe.At the beginning of the movie, Jean is on the island of Malaya with her brother and a group of English workers.The Japanese overtake the island and cart off the men, apparently to a work camp.They force the women and children of the group to walk from place to place with accompanying soldiers.We see the woman at times afraid, at times bold, on the verge of giving up, yet determined to keep on.We see them sick, hungry and dirty.We watch some of them die.This is where the movie is the most engrossing.The characters are well developed and I almost felt as if I was marching right along with them.I came to love the character of Jean--she's smart and determined and also has a lot of compassion and a sense of humor.One of the best parts of the movie is when this rag tag group of women and children meet up with two Australian prisoners of war.There's an immediate attraction between Jean and one of the prisoners, Joe, and his energy infuses Jean with new life during the short time they are together.After the war, Jean inherits a large amount of money.She has never forgotten Joe and after much time and effort on both their parts, Joe and Jean get together again--this time in Australia.Jean uses her determination and smarts to develops some businesses, all the while wondering if she can make it on the outback.Joe loves Jean, but wonders himself whether or not he can ask her to live the life he loves.Their romance is appealing--they are both strong, independent people who have a passion for life and for each other.If you appreciate a long, thoughtful story with interesting and likeable characters, I would highly recommend this wonderful film.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Film and Worth the Purchase
    This is a great DVD that our son loves to watch. I don't think it is as good as the original but sequels rarely are. It's certainly worth the purchase and has a lot of extras on the disc. I have seen it less expensive in other stores however.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Buzz & Woody Are Back
    Yes it's true and people didn't think it could be done, Buzz & Woody back for a second adventure. In this film Woody finds out the real reason why he was made, he was a character on a TV show and Woody is one of the last remaining dolls made for that TV show.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent pick for all
    Toy Story 2 is just as good as (or even better than) Toy Story 1.Great animation, very funny and teaches valuable lessons without the sadness.Some of the animated movies have scenes that are hard to watch, for example the opening scene in Finding Nemo or the beginning of Tarzan.My son watches those scenes in horror (and so do I).Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 1 have such an original storyline that is so endearing, and it is such a well rounded movie that it is an excellent pick for all.I also like the fact that the toys don't sing and dance as in most animated movies, and yet the music is excellent.I particularly love the song (composer: Randy Newman) when Buzz realizes he is just a toy and can't fly and tries to fly out the window.Me and my son play along to that part! ...

    Editorial Review

    The 1951 John Huston classic, set in Africa during World War I, garnered Humphrey Bogart an Oscar for his role as a hard-drinking riverboat captain in Africa, who provides passage for a Christian missionary spinster (Katharine Hepburn). Taking an instant, mutual dislike to one another, the two endure rough waters, the presence of German soldiers, and their own bickering to finally fall into one another's arms. This is classic Huston material--part adventure, part quest--but this time with a pair of characters who'd all but given up on happiness. Bogart (a longtime collaborator with Huston on such classics as Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars African Queen deserves royal treatment....on DVD!!!!!!!!!
    This movie is way looooong over due to be put on DVD. I find it amazing how some of the crapiest movies get released on DVD, yet this wonderful gem of a movie has yet to see the light of day on
    5-0 out of 5 stars Should be rated "G" not Unrated.
    This movie should have a "G" rating becauseit's a classic film from 1952. I saw this movie in 1990 when I was 10. I liked it then and, I like it now. There's nothing explicit in this movie at all. That's why it should be rated "G".

    5-0 out of 5 stars Undiminished Classic Carries the Unshakable Triumvirate of Bogart, Hepburn and Huston at Their Peak
    The reputation of this deserved classic rests primarily on the shoulders of master director John Huston and his two legendary stars, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. The story itself, penned by Huston and James Agee (with uncredited help from Peter Viertel) based on a novel by C.S. Forester, is a two-character high adventure that moves its narrative in a rather contrived manner. Yet, the resulting 1951 film sparkles in a burnished aura of Hollywood lore, as Clint Eastwood saw fit to make a film about the production itself with 1990's "White Hunter, Black Heart" and Hepburn herself wrote an entertaining memoir 36 years after the fact with the seemingly apt title, "The Making of the African Queen: Or How I Went to Africa With Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind". Between Bogart's apparent boozing, Huston's big game obsessions, Hepburn's idiosyncrasies and the challenging African jungle, it must have been quite an unpredictable set.
