    4-0 out of 5 stars Family Dog - Family Favorite
    The first half of this is a less than memorable Christopher Lloyd episode of Amazing Stories, which says a lot about the writing since Christopher Lloyd could make a piece of toast funny. The second half of this is the Family Dog, which is not only memorable, but classic and under appreciated. This animated half hour has excellent writing, animation, and voice talent - including Annie Potts as the mother. The hilarity of home life is in your face and leaves you wanting more. My sisters, brother, even my mother quoted it for years after seeing it, "Oh my gawd they've taken the coffee maker!" My family was very grateful when years after seeing it, I bought each of them a copy through Amazon. They love it and watch it over and over- and what makes a classic of something beyond the audiences love of returning to the material? Even though the eventual animated series it spawned lacked the same writing punch, I would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of good clean "art imitating family life" humor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's perfect... would like it on DVD
    We first watched it about 18 years ago and it's brilliant, a real gem. We watch it every couple of years now and enjoy just as much. The VHS tape (which was a copy) is almost unwatchable... would love to get the DVD.
    4-0 out of 5 stars OH MY GOD!!!
    The cartoon was unbelievably funny! That rotten little boy and the smartass dog was too too funny for words.I RECOMMEND THIS MOVIE TO ANYONE WITH AN ATTITUDE PROBLEM BECAUSE THIS MOVIE WILL GET RID OF IT TEMPORARILY.

    Editorial Review

    No film better utilizes Audrey Hepburn's flighty charm and svelte beauty than this romantic adaptation of Truman Capote's novella. Hepburn's urban sophisticate Holly Golightly, an enchanting neurotic living off the gifts of gentlemen, is a bewitching figure in designer dresses and costume jewelry. George Peppard is her upstairs neighbor, a struggling writer and "kept" man financed by a steely older woman (Patricia Neal). His growing friendship with the lonely Holly soon turns to love and threatens the delicate balance of both of their compromised lives. Taking liberties with Capote's bittersweet story, director Blake Edwards and screenwriter George Axelrod turn New York into a city of lovers and create a poignant portrait of Holly, a frustrated romantic with a secret past and a hidden vulnerability. Composer Henry Mancini earned Oscars for the hit song "Moon River" and his tastefully romantic score. The only sour note in the whole film is Mickey Rooney's demeaning performance as the apartment's Japanese manager, an offensively overdone stereotype even in 1961. The rest of the film has weathered the decades well. Edwards's elegant yet light touch, Axelrod's generous screenplay, and Hepburn's mix of knowing experience and naiveté combine to create one of the great screen romances and a refined slice of high society bohemian chic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars As Charming as A Classic Can get!
    Breakfast at Tiffany's... If you haven't seen it, then you must have heard of it in some way. You have heard the title somewhere, you read about it at someplace or maybe you have heard the famous musical theme by Henry Mancini? Yes, it's hard not to have heard of this classic masterpiece in some sort of way.
    5-0 out of 5 stars delicious
    Blake Edward's masterpiece isbright, funny, intelligent, and thoroughly winning, thanks to his deft direction and the singular presence of its stars.Stunningly gowned by Givenchy, Audrey Hepburn makes the part of Holly Golightly completely her own, and is so captivating, one couldn't care less how greatly the film differs from Truman Capote's much darker novella.George Peppard is her praiseworthy partner in his most memorable role.To better complement his spirited co-star, he plays Paul Varjak quietly, radiating a natural humor, pride, warmth, and grace.With astonishing blue eyes, perfect hair, cardigans, tweed jackets, and penny loafers, Paul is achingly handsome and infinitely desirable.
    5-0 out of 5 stars An amazingly beautiful, sad film
    The sight of Audrey Hepburn, dressed immaculately in a black dress, wearing large black goggles, holding a danish pastry in one of her hands and a coffee in the other, looking wishfully, enchantedly into the window of Tiffany, joins forces with the extremely beautiful yet melancholy background score by Henri Mancini to set the tone of the movie. Quirky, witty, modern, fashionable, yet flowing over an undercurrent of unexplainable sadness.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Corny, predictable, contrived, and deceptive (in portraying New York.) I love it!
    First, let me say that by quality film standards this is a terrible movie, in many respects. I live to walk on videos of this type with football cleats. But, this movie falls into the "I hated this movie so much, I couldn't help but watch it whenever it was on" category. And now I love it. I don't know what it is about this movie. I tried to put my finger on it many times. I always have and always will hate "Sleepless in Seattle," which is a totally contrived load of crap. But "You've Got Mail" has an undefinable charm to it that forces you to look past it's simplified portrayal of a happy go lucky, skip around the neighborhoods of New York atmosphere. It makes you question why you buy into such sappy dialogue and situations. It's not just because of the Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks chemistry, because I hated the despicable "Sleepless in Seattle" and always thought the entire premis of "Joe Versus the Volcanoe" was a joke. But in this movie, contrived as it may be, that interplay between the two works. Though their acting is also hammy at best, I also love the contributions of Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey, Stephen Zahn and Jean Stapleton. This is one of my guiltiest pleasures. I'll only watch it with the remote on toggle to some type of sports programming in case my friends walk in on me while I'm watching it so I can jump inmmediately to the "Binford Lumberjack Finals," or something like that. But were they to walk in at the end of this movie and find me glossy eyed with a lump in my throat, I'd never hear the end of it. I love this movie. There! I admit it.!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    I absolutely love this movie. Hanks and Ryan have so much chemistry together and the story is so adorable. I have watched this movie so many times and love it more every time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great tale.
    This movie is very entertaining.I'm not into romance movies and this is not your ordinary romance movie it also contains some comedy.You just get into the plot and all the characters are interesting and entertaining.I've recommened this movie to all my family and friends. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning...
    Alan Rickman continues to amaze me with the diversity and depth he brings to every role he plays. His Rasputin just leapt out at you, even in moments when he was being serious & contemplative. He so richly deserved all the accolades that were awarded to him for his performance. He played so many facets, there were times you wanted to strangle him, and other times when you felt completely sympathetic to him, and wondered if he truly was a Holy Man who just became a pawn in the power struggle of the time. I also have to give kudos to both Greta Scacchi & Ian McKellen for their performances as the doomed Tsar & Tsarina, bursting with hope and happiness as Alexei is "cured", and falling into the pit of despair as their world crumbles around them. An amazing movie, period.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Film
    This film deservese 5 stars for someone daring to pick up where the 1991 discovery had left off.I see some people criticizing the film and they are entitled that right, but this film was beautifully done.The acting was superb, locations were grand, and the portrayal of life in Russia (such as the authentic Orthodox Priest) was extraordinary.5 Stars!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing portrayal!
    Though not the greatest film of all time, Rickman's astonishingly complex portrayal of the enchanted monk is among the great male roles of all cinema, comparable to Giannini's breathtaking "Seven Beauties". This is a must for any student of acting.(...) ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Loads of Family Fun!
    This warm and funny account of a newly married couple trying to make a go of it on a backwoods chicken farm, based on Betty MacDonald's popular best seller, was a big hit with audiences during the 1940's and has lost none of its appeal today. This is a great film the entire family can watch together.Chester Erskine produced, directed and co-wrote the screenplay with Fred F. Finklehoffe in this hilarious and heartwarming film all will enjoy.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Funny Movie Based on a Hilarious Book
    "The Egg & I", a movie based on the book of the same title, is entertaining, clean( you can let the kids watch this one), and funny. It's not quite as funny as the book, though. 4-0 out of 5 stars Good clean fun... recommended!
    A genuinely funny, old-school comedy, featuring Fred MacMurray as a city slicker gone country boy, a white collar executive who decides to chuck it all in and become a chicken farmer, somewhere deep in the boonies, and Claudette Colbert as his long-suffering, stand-by-her-man, newlywed wife.Both actors have superb comic timing, and theirchemistry together-- he blithely missing her every disatisfaction, she gulping back her exasperation -- is quite good. This was also the first movie to feature the iconic "hick" couple, Ma & Pa Kettle, a Lil Abner-ish pair who went on to make several films together after this debut.I suspect this film, however, is the best of the lot.Recommended! ...

    For a couple of hours in 1990, David Lynch took over the network airwaves and subtly, subversively transformed American television forever. Amazingly, the TV series that followed this rich and strange feature-length pilot became an international phenomenon as people all over the world became obsessed by one question: Who killed Laura Palmer?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Laura Palmer is dead . . . wrapped in plastic . . .
    I am taking a trip to the Seattle area this week and decided that I wanted to have lunch at the Great Northern Hotel, owned by Benjamin Horne (est. 1927).The hotel, which offers its guests a spectacular view of Whitetail Falls, is located slightly north of Twin Peaks, just below the base of Black Lake.The Great Northern is actually the Salish Lodge, perched on a hillside just above Snoqualmie Falls.To prepare myself for the experience, and to indoctrinate my oldest daughter into yet another cult television show, we watched the first season of "Twin Peaks" together starting with the two hour pilot episode that originally aired Sunday, April 8, 1990 on ABC.Fifteen years later, this pilot episode written by Mark Frost ("Hill Street Blues") and David Lynch ("Blue Velvet") still stands up.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Start here.
    This is pretty much what any fan of the show or David Lynch needs to start with. It's the original movie/pilot, and is a great piece of work. The story, the characters, and the whole northwest environment really make for an interesting and sometimes creepy watch. Many cool actors showed up in "Twin Peaks", among them Kyle McLachlan, Lara Flynn-Boyle, Sheryl Lee, Jack Nance, and the sexy Sherilyn Fenn. If you enjoy this, seek out the VHS collectors series, episodes 1-7. Or the DVD first season, which is also episodes 1-7, minus this pilot. ... Read more

    What a wonderful piece of work. I love to watch and rewatch this movie.It really has a powerful message about having people in our lives who may not be able to function like everyone else, but that is exactly why they are so loveable. You can learn a lot from them if you listen and watch.Mr. Erman really got the point across.The cast was incredible.

    4-0 out of 5 stars daves review
    I think that this movie was put togeather really well.I think that Courtney Vance did a remakable job in bringing the role of lucien to life.i feel the artist is trying to show us that no matter how diffrent we are we all go through life altering problems. i have to say that this piece was worth the time ofthe drictor and crew. i felt that the mood of the movie was hared to chew than others for example when berries dad almost hit him it made me really mad but i came out of that state when lucien,norman, and arnold got toride the trian. The theme of the moive is one that I will never forget do not juge people no matter how diifrent they are from you because you will alwys be diffrent from the next person who comes along your path. the plot of the moive of the movie is the arument betwwen jack and his wife. the movie is one filme i could see over and over agin.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Film's Heavy-Handedness Loses Graces of Stage Versions
    A viewer unfamiliar with the original stage production won't realize how much was lost in transitioning this story to the (small) screen, but playgoers will be intensely disappointed with the script revisions to Tom Griffin's original story, which equally emphasized the joys as well as the sorrows of these four men.This film version is a surprisingly humorless tale, made unnecessarily darker by the screenwriters' need to snow-shovel "substance" and "meaning" into every scene.In the play, for example, the visit by next door neighbor, Mrs. Warren, is played strictly for laughs, but in the film the humor of the situation is de-emphasized in favor of stressing, as it does ad nausium, both the barriers "the boys" face and the mounting pressures placed on their caregiver, Jack.Read more

    The DVD was okay and I needed it for a gift (which I was late for - my fault).I received it in 5 days but it arrived totally smashed.It was packed in a stiff yellow envelope but needed more packing.The outside of the package was marred but not ripped open.But when I opened it I was horrified that the entire case was crushed. I delicately took it apart and it seemed that the DVD was untouched so I put it in another generic case that I had around the house.That was disappointing because the case it came in was very attractive and I couldn't fit it in my case.Because I was late with my gift, I didn't have time to send it back to you.The price was right, the service was quick, just bulk up on your shipping a little.

    3-0 out of 5 stars A Sublime Italianate Streep Towers Over a Snail's-Paced Romantic Tearjerker
    If you want to see an actress make something out of nothing, then see Meryl Streep in this lumbering romance novel of a movie. Based on the ridiculous Robert James Waller bestseller (a book I truly loathed), the 1995 film retains a lot of the novel's unbearable treacle and heaving sentimentality. At the same time, screenwriter Richard LaGravenese's adaptation improves the story immeasurably by shifting more of the focus to Francesca Johnson, an Italian post-WWII bride who has become over the years, a lonely, middle-aged Iowa farmwife circa 1965. Her husband and two children leave for four days to the Illinois State Fair, and by chance, renowned photographer Robert Kincaid accidentally drops by the Johnson farm for directions to the famous Roseman Bridge, one of several covered bridges around Winterset, Iowa. Francesca is fascinated, then smitten, and the two embark on a brief but life-altering love affair.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A mature, intelligent love story....
    This is why I love this film.It's mature, intelligent, thoughtful, real, and in the end, sad and heartbreaking, but not despairing.Some have expressed surprise that Eastwood directed this film so well, but I'm not.Eastwood is a great handler of actors and has always displayed great sensitivity to them.He never makes an actor read for a role, and he never says "action", because it makes actors nervous.Despite a little too much sentimentality at the end, this film holds up very well, and is entirely believable.Streep and Eastwood give phenomenal performances here, and you really believe that they are 2 souls that need each other.The line "certainty like this comes along once in a lifetime" really haunts the film.Rarely do you fall in love at first sight.You may become infatuated at first sight, but love is a much deeper feeling.Even though Streep and Eastwood's characters know each other for only 4 days, the rapport they have here is geniune and very honest.It's a story for adults, and considering it was made in 1995 (when idiotic teen comedies were everywhere polluting the multiplexes), it's even more of a treasure.Hollywood should do more adult romances, and not silly, vapid "chick flicks".I don't like chick flicks, I prefer my romances to be more grounded in reality and intelligence, and this film is one of them.... ...

    Editorial Review

    Winner of four Academy Awards, including best picture, director, supporting actor, and best editing, Clint Eastwood's 1992 masterpiece stands as one of the greatest and most thematically compelling Westerns ever made."The movie summarized everything I feel about the Western," said Eastwood at the time of the film's release. "The moral is the concern with gunplay." To illustrate that theme, Eastwood stars as a retired, once-ruthless killer-turned-gentle-widower and hog farmer. He accepts one last bounty-hunter mission--to find the men who brutalized a prostitute--to help support his two motherless children. Joined by his former partner (Morgan Freeman) and a cocky greenhorn (Jaimz Woolvett), he takes on a corrupt sheriff (Oscar winner Gene Hackman) in a showdown that makes the viewer feel the full impact of violence and its corruption of the soul. Dedicated to Eastwood's mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel and featuring a colorful role for Richard Harris, it's arguably Eastwood's crowning directorial achievement. The digital video disc offers standard and widescreen formats and a remastered soundtrack. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't talk about queens on the 4th of July, please.
    Hailed as Clint Eastwood's "masterpiece" up until Million Dollar Baby came out, Unforgiven has been very hyped. How many modern westerns get hyped like this sucker did? None, that's how many. And of course, like I am with any hyped up movie, I had my doubts. I saw Million Dollar Baby before this, and thought it was average and predictable, and was sick of Morgan Freeman playing [yet again] the wise, older characters. Seeing that he was in Unforgiven didn't help my expected chances of liking the movie either. But when all was said and done, I had experienced one of the most heartfelt westerns ever made. No, it's not some sappy kind that relies on imagery or music to make you feel the impact of the film. Unforgiven instead focuses on one man's struggle to live normally after all the horrible things he'd done in the past, and his reflection upon them to an up and coming gunman. When the dvd format was released, this was a movie that a lot of people were anticipating. Sadly, it got a shoddy transfer and no special features that mattered. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of its release, this version of Unforgiven is easily the one to buy without question, featuring in-depth special features, a stunning transfer, and even cool packaging.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A brief comment
    I think this is one of the best westerns ever made, despite being a very atypical western. In most movies, the west was over-romanticized and idealized; here it's an unglamorous and almost film noir version of a western as several over the hill and cynical gunfighters, along with a rash, unproven, young wannabe, try to bring several evil-doers to justice. Each has his own reasons for taking part in this quest, despite the misgivings of Eastwood's and Freeman's characters. Both Freeman and Eastwood turn in a couple of their best performances, with Eastwood ironically turning in one that is 180 degrees apart from the macho role in the famous spaghetti westerns that originally made his name in the genre. Overall a fine western and one that should stand the test of time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best westerns ever made
    In the interest of brevity, I will say only: UNFORGIVEN is one of the best western films ever made and certainly the best film Clint Eastwood has ever made; everybody in it is good -- except Gene Hackman, who is great; don't miss it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Maybe the most honest film on addiction ever made!!
    I have heard it said many times that no addiction starts out as a physical dependancy; addiction really begins as a psycological/spiritual defect deep down inside. I think the way that the movie in the beginning showed the insecurity and unease of the two main characters is the most underrated aspect of this brilliant film. The alcohol washes away the unease and pain for awhile, but when the mask wears off, literally, all hell breaks loose!!
    4-0 out of 5 stars Great, maybe the best movie about alcoholism
    What I like about this movie is the honesty about addiction. It is very much like portrayed in this movie. And yes, woman do go down quicker. And AA doesn't work as well for woman.

    I watched this movie because I love Jack Lemmon.Mostly I like his comedies, like The Odd Couple and Some Like it Hot.Although this wasn't a comedy, I still enjoyed every bit of it for its brilliant acting and powerful message to alcoholics everywhere. Read more

    This movie is a great one, and you will like it even more if you are interested in the historic time period in which it takes place.

    I wouldn't normally write a review of such drivel but felt that I had to when I saw what Christiane Schmidt had to say.
    5-0 out of 5 stars An eye-opener! WATCH IT!
    I think I will never look at the British the same again! I didn't know how evil they were! It is disgusting to see, what crimes they committed against freedom itself! They murdered patriotic Americans in cold-blood!

    For a couple of hours in 1990, David Lynch took over the network airwaves and subtly, subversively transformed American television forever. Amazingly, the TV series that followed this rich and strange feature-length pilot became an international phenomenon as people all over the world became obsessed by one question: Who killed Laura Palmer?

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the Best Show That has EVER been on Television.
    Mindblowing...mezmerizing...incredible. This is the best show that has ever been on television.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Laura Palmer is dead . . . wrapped in plastic . . .
    I am taking a trip to the Seattle area this week and decided that I wanted to have lunch at the Great Northern Hotel, owned by Benjamin Horne (est. 1927).The hotel, which offers its guests a spectacular view of Whitetail Falls, is located slightly north of Twin Peaks, just below the base of Black Lake.The Great Northern is actually the Salish Lodge, perched on a hillside just above Snoqualmie Falls.To prepare myself for the experience, and to indoctrinate my oldest daughter into yet another cult television show, we watched the first season of "Twin Peaks" together starting with the two hour pilot episode that originally aired Sunday, April 8, 1990 on ABC.Fifteen years later, this pilot episode written by Mark Frost ("Hill Street Blues") and David Lynch ("Blue Velvet") still stands up.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Start here.
    This is pretty much what any fan of the show or David Lynch needs to start with. It's the original movie/pilot, and is a great piece of work. The story, the characters, and the whole northwest environment really make for an interesting and sometimes creepy watch. Many cool actors showed up in "Twin Peaks", among them Kyle McLachlan, Lara Flynn-Boyle, Sheryl Lee, Jack Nance, and the sexy Sherilyn Fenn. If you enjoy this, seek out the VHS collectors series, episodes 1-7. Or the DVD first season, which is also episodes 1-7, minus this pilot. ... Read more

    I saw this movie as a kid and was entranced by the spooky mystery and the ghost of child who needed help.I contacted Disney, but they don't have any immediate plans to put the movie on DVD.In the meantime, I highly recommend the book upon which the movie is based:

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Day After Tomorrow
    The day after Tomorrow is a great movie. I love it because it's not just an other sport movie, chic flick, action, romance or comedy movie. There's nothing else like the Day After Tomorrow. It's a little bit of everything. It's the story of a series of natural disasters that are thought to be the end of the world. In this movie a man predicts all of the huge disasters but, no one believes him. I would recomend The Day After Tomorrow to sixth graders and up because i saw it in fourth at a sleep over and was scard out of my mind! It is scarry to think something so bad would ever happen to our world. If you have kids that will watch this movie i would remind them that this storry is not real and wount happen for a very very very long time (so my mom says.)

    3-0 out of 5 stars Seriously, it is really not all that bad
    THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW has widely been ridiculed as one of the silliest movies of recent years and was the recipient of utterly awful reviews when it was released.Having heard all of this, I was hardly tempted to watch it for some time.But recently I was in the mood for a disaster movie, and having recently watched the Val Guest British classic THE DAY THE EARTH CAUGHT FIRE, I was interested in seeing it destroyed by ice as well.Although this is one of the most thoroughly panned films of recent years by critics, I thought it was, in fact, a very entertaining film.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this movie...what an adventure!
    This is the kind of movie that is perfect to watch with the whole family. Pop the popcorn and get ready for an adventure! I watch this movie over and over again and I'm never bored with it. It has all the makings of a classic disaster film: you care about the characters, it's just predictable enough to draw you in and keep you watching. The cinematogaphy is awesome and the special effects keep you on the edge of your seat. The cast was excellent and I can hardly wait to pop this movie into the dvd player and watch it again...Loved it! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
    I think that this is the best Pink Panther film that I've seen. Although I've only seen this one, A Shot In The Dark, and The Pink Panther {2006}. This film has incredible slapstick comedy by Peter Sellers. Starring Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau, David Niven as Sir Charles Lytton, Robert Wagner as George Lytton, Capucine as Simone Clouseau, Brenda De Banzie as Angela Dunning, Colin Gordon as Tucker,Claudia Cardinale as Princess Dala, and The Pink Panther as himself. I can't wait to see the other ones. Well, that was my review.
    5-0 out of 5 stars His Kind of Woman
    Recently, from film noirs, You released the move "His Kind of Woman" with Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell. This movie I have been waiting to buy for many years. It is one of the best Adventure movie I have enjoyed very much. I recomend it to all ages. Robert Mitchum at his best.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful comedy classic
    Blake Edwards' THE PINK PANTHER has held up well over the years.It is, of course, the start of one of the funniest and most popular comedy series of all time.However, while the subsequent films focus on the antics of bumbling Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Peter Sellers), Clouseau is almost a supporting character in this film.Most of the focus is placed on Sir Charles Lytton (David Niven), an irresistible middle-aged bachelor who is secretly "The Phantom", a world-famous jewel thief.He decides to steal the Pink Panther diamond, the most valuable jewel in all the world.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Don't Shoot the Piano Player
    I watched "The Wild Rovers" last night mainly because I have always enjoyed the acting of William Holden (as well as Karl Malden who also plays a major role in the movie).Holden has such a quick, yet (by American standards) articulate delivery that he sounds like an effusive Bob Hope in a dramatic role.He has made every movie I've seen him in better because of his presence in the cast.Sometimes, however, the structure of the movie fails to support the quality of the cast.For me, the problems with "The Wild Rovers" is not Holden or any of the actors; it's Blake Edwards.
    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best westerns ever
    MY RATING- 7.65-0 out of 5 stars A Real Western
    Much like "Unforgiven" , this western falls more in the reality of the wild west than the "typical western".The characters;such as Karl Malden as the hard rancher patriarch, William Holden's happygo lucky cowboy, Tom Skerrit and Joe Don Baker as the two sons who live intheir father's (Maldin) shadow are real character's that develop and grow. This movie stays away from thin stale western stereotypes.Very humorousbantering between Holden and O'neal adds a nice touch to the movie, but thehumor is never used to soften the violence or emotional impact of themovie.There are no "good guys" and "bad guys" either. Much like the real world everyone in this picture has an angle on thetruth and whats right.The director leaves it to the viewer to decidewhats right instead of spoon feeding it to you with"black-hat/white-hat" simplicity.Wonderful movie particularlyfor the western fan. ...

    As an African American parent and teacher, this movie is a MUST for our children. Each generation is further removed from the real-life experiences of segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, and the deceased generation of slavery.The word"nigger" is now used thoughtlessly as a joke. Our children don't realize the significance the word had and still has for some generations. Too many believe they can refuse or fight their way out of an unwanted situation. Theirs is a different reality. ROOTS can bring them in touch with the past of those who havedied in a struggle to maintain dignity for our people. This legacy is alive in the movie ROOTS. Share the legacy with our children---see the movie with a young person.

    5 stars all the way.It's silly, way too silly to be taken seriously, but that's ok.No one is looking to change the world here.
    5-0 out of 5 stars GreatScifi/Action Movie
    This movie kinds of reminds me of "The War of the Worlds" series as far as Evil aliens come to wipe out the human race. The way they're defeated sounds the same too with one obvious difference. I don't want to give a way anything but compare the two and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    5-0 out of 5 stars How can anyone ahte this film?
    This is the ultimate "Us VS Them" epic. How can you hate it? It has great special effects, great music, plenty of humor, and characters who are more sympathetic than most. It's meant to be FUN people. And it's a hell of a lot more fun than those crappy Star Wars prequels.

    The movie I liked very much,one of the best he ever made.
    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Eastwoods Best Action Packed Westerns
    At the time of its release, this was the best western that Eastwood had ever done with the exception of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". Eastwood skillfully plays a sympathetic character whose wife and child are killed during the Civil War near Kansas by the Union "Redlegs" who are virtually roguing military. Seeking revenge for his loss, he joins a Bloody Bill Anderson's guerrilla unit that strikes unmercifully against the union forces. As the war ends, the majority of the unit comes in to surrender except for Josey and they are slaughtered by the Redlegs who seek retaliation. And there is your story; Josey becomes the hunted as he and one escaping companion are hunted virtually to eternity. Eastwood plays the character perfectly as he carries multiple pistols and weapons as Confederate cavalry did to even fire power, even with loaded cylinders that he can interchange with his pistols. Comical at times, as Eastwood seems to pick up lost souls from Indian Dan George (Little Bigman), to an abused female Indian, a cranky granny and her attractive yet pensive daughter (Locke) and even a red boned cur dog who suffers the indignity of Josey's spiteful but accurate tobacco spit (but the dog follows anyways). George has several lines that work as commentary onthe plight of the 'Civilized Tribes' and the Cherokees choice of backing the south. He also invokes great humor with lines like, "I didn't surrender, but they took my horse. He surrendered". The movie is a thrill a minute as Josey frequently has to shoot his way out of traps, accidental discoveries, the rescue of one of his lost souls and the climatic ending where he finally finds a peaceful place until he is found again not only by his old enemies but the Indians in his adopted home. In each circumstance where he finds himself confronted with danger and as always outnumbered, he always seeks an edge to give him some advantage, and when he spits, there is going to be some shooting. And there is a sub-climatic moment where Josey meets with his Indian counterpoint, recognizing that they have recently lived parallel lives, each being hunted and perhaps abused, making a statement that each deserves a better life. Not as sensitive as his best film the "Unforgiven" or perhaps as realistic, but action packed and entertaining.

    5-0 out of 5 stars On the Contrary, Great Eastwood
    There is something about Clint Eastwood that allows him the luxury of delivering a cheesey macho line without looking like an ass. In a movie full of such lines, Eastwood really shines in this epic western. I have always wondered why the critics never gave this western its due, while normal every day joes continue to give it the thumbs up. I believe the answer lies in the sympathic portrayal of the Confederate outlaw who is Josey Wales. How dare anyone cast anything wearing a Confederate uniform in anything less than an evil light? Moreover, How dare anyone portray Union Soldiers as a bunch of marauding murderers who looted and pillaged their way through a defeated South? These are the type of thoughts likely dancing through the heads of liberal wine drinking cheese eating newspaper types while sitting down to disparage what is Eastwood's best movie.
