    4-0 out of 5 stars This tape is a collector's item.
    This tape is more of a "must have" for Jerry Seinfeld fans or diehard SNL fans. For others, you may want to think twice before spending good money on this one. That is only because of the length, a mere 32 minutes (and that includes the video company's opening credits). The comedic skits and comedy bits are very good. I believe this originally aired in 1992, a couple of years BEFORE the TV show "Seinfeld" hit its prime. Jerry's fans will like this tape a lot. Especially the "Superman" sketch and the "game show" sketch (where the contestants answer questions, using Jerry's trademark delivery style). Again, if you're a fan of anything "Seinfeld," grab it while you can. It already seems like a collector's item to me. If you're an SNL fan, be aware that the only skits on this tape (except for the opening bit, before the monologue) are the ones in which Jerry appear. The episode's other skits are not included. For fans of both Seinfeld and SNL, definitely purchase it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable. Jerry at his Jerry-best.
    This is a very enjoyable video if you are a Jerry Seinfeld fan. It starts with a sketch (4.10 minutes) with Phil Hartman playing Clinton and Dana Carvey playing Brown. They are talking about a political debate they are about to have. 4-0 out of 5 stars A real classic - collector's item
    If you can still get your hands on this one, do it.This features Jerry at his younger comedian days along with the talented crews at Saturday Night Live.See how his nothingness evolved into His Royal Nothingness. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Feast for the Eyes
    The mid-1980s was a banner time for E.M. Forster fans. Two of his novels, "A Passage to India" and this, "A Room with a View", were successfully and wonderfully adapted for the big screen. ("Howard's End" would come a few years later.)
    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this movie!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Crazy Horse, A Warrior I Honor !!
    This is a really great movie and by far the truest of all movies that I've seen for the Custer battle. Crazy Horse is my hero and I still study a great deal of him and the Lakota/Sioux tribe.2-0 out of 5 stars Oh, Geez!
    Didn't like this one. Glad to see Native actors/actresses, butthis portrayal of Crazy Horse way off the mark as far as I wasconcerned. Maybe not quite as bad as the first one--Chief Crazy Horse (from the 50s with Victor Mature), but not much better either. Too much Hollywood here--lots of paint horses and feathers. KL

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching
    A wonderfull movie! Attention to detail, for example some of the statements made by Crazy Horse and Custer, period costume and battles. It is interesting to note that Custer had cut his hair before the battle of the Little Big Horn, which appears to be the only movie to portray this accurately. Custer dies somewhere during the battle and not in the 'classic' back to back end of the battle senario as is popularly portrayed in the 'hero' literature.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Eleonore Austerer
    Wonderful film, outstanding performances on behalf of all actors and actresses, including Sir Anthony Hopkins. His looks and mannerism was so perfect that I forgot at times that I was not watching "Picasso in action".
    5-0 out of 5 stars Why no DVD after all these years?
    When week after week you see some of the slop flipped to DVD quickly, it's surprising to me this interesting film is still VHS only.I disagree with some of the other reviewers- I think Hopkins did a great job at inhabiting Picasso's spirit. Did the film "explain" him? No- but Picasso was such an elusivecomplicated man, it's not entirely surprising.As when Hopkins did Nixon- sure, you don't totally forget it's Anthony Hopkins- but as with his Nixon, Hopkins is mezmorizing here.Hopkins said after playing men like in Remains of the Day who were basically dead from the waist down, he relished the opportunity to play a man who was completely alive- and his joy here is apparent.Beside Hopkins, Natascha McElhone is very intriguing, as are the rest of the supporting cast and the Parisian and Spanish locations.It's a Merchant Ivory piece fer cryin out loud- you KNOW the production values are always going to be rock solid.We'd like a DVD please!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Enduring Picasso
    I find Anthony Hopkins to be a master at becoming whatever he intends to create.He was just as believable as President Nixon in "Nixon", as he was a madman in "Silence Of The Lambs".Here again, he does not dissapoint me.The movie is dark, and I would tend not to agree with the accuracy of the historical aspects of the film, but I did find Hopkins to be a compelling Picasso.And, yes once again, I found myself watching Pablo Picasso.I enjoy biographies of painters and creative souls, and I would be hard pressed to find a biography that is uplifting and has a happy ending.I found the same in "Surviving Picasso".It is a little long in the tooth, but I found the cinematography to be beautiful and again, Sir Anthony Hopkins' performance is beautiful.I would reccomend this for any Hopkins lover. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE BURMESE HARP
    Director Kon Ichikawa made a truly great movie, especially considering that this anti-war movie was made not long after the end of the second world war. [1956 release] Having read quite a bit about the Pacific theatre of war as an undergraduate, I came to appreciate this movie about how the trauma of this horrible war affected one Japanese soldier. The soldier becomes spiritually obsessed with burying as many Japanese war dead that he comes across in his journey throughout the country of Burma. And he vows to remain in Burma until he has accomplished this task [a very formidabale task!] The fact that this Cinematic masterpiece is only available on VHS, not DVD, does not detract from the richness of the movie. I rank this movie right up there with "PATHS OF GLORY," as my two most favorite anti-war movies ever made. A must see.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Haunting Japanese anti war film!
    At the end of the WW2, a survivor of a Japanese Command, follows his bliss when he takes a decision: to disguise himself as a monk . He will make a reflexive tour, a powerful insight act, a soul searching journey soul searching backto those places where his fellow comrades met the death. This redemption fact once more completes the mythical cycle of the life: birth and innocence, maturity and experience and finally wisdom and redemption.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Come Japan, come England, Burma is Buddha's country
    At the beginning of this long film the audience sees a spectatcular view red dirt and red mountains of Burma, which is very significant because, if one is familiar with Buddhist tradition, the dust symbollizes the mortal world of suffering and it represents what one wants to brush off if one desires to follow the path of the Buddha. After seeing the bleak terrain, the audience is introduced to a small contigent of soldiers led by Captain Inoue a former music teacher. In order to keep his troops spirits up, the Captain teaches his men how to sing with varying degrees of success. His most gifted soldier is Mizushima, who has taught himself how to play a Burmese Harp which he has mastered quite skillfully.

    Editorial Review

    More is not necessarily better. A glitzy Hollywood cast and a big budget did not improve the wonderful 1957 teleplay (or its equally charming 1964 remake) upon which this version is based. This is partly because Brandy, cast in the title role, cannot act. Not helping matters are Whoopi Goldberg as the prince's mother and Jason Alexander as his valet. Their shtick wears thin very quickly. However, Paolo Montalban is charismatic as the prince, and Whitney Houston plays a fairy godmother with pizzazz. The production cost millions, and is certainly lavish, but the whole affair feels forced and overdone, reminding one of a prom queen wearing too much makeup. It does deserve credit for a multi-ethnic cast, the addition of two new songs and a hip attitude. However, the 1964 version (the original was not taped) is much sweeter and more romantic. Originally released as Read more

They're usually color-blind until we point it out to them anyway.This was a wonderful story and CD.

    this is obviously my own personal opinion, but i have always been a fan of this movie since i was in highschool (which was about 5 years ago). i thought it was refreshing to see a multi-cultured cast in the production instead of the usual conformity of race and color. it's a great movie for kids to enjoy and my own daughter loves this as much as i do. as soon as i saw that it was on DVD i had to snatch it up for myself. i can't stop watching it, i love this video so much! ...

    Editorial Review

    Upon its release in 1981, John Irvin's version of Peter Straub'sbestselling horror novel was deemed one of the worst adaptations that the genre had ever produced. Now it's available on DVD, and for the first time in widescreen presentation, and not much has changed. It's still a nearly unwatchable dud. Fred Astaire, John Houseman, Melvyn Douglas, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr. play old friends, members of the self-created Chowder Society, who get together and tell ghost tales. The scariest story of all, however, is the one they never speak to each other. Fifty years ago, the four men accidentally killed a young woman, and now she's back(with much less meat on her bones) and seeking vengeance. Sound chilling? Well, in Straub's hands it was, and the novel remains the author's finest achievement. Irvin, however, distills Staub's rich characterizations, gradual tension, and creepy atmosphere, and replaces them with aging golden oldies (only Houseman appears to be having any fun) hamming it up and hokey special-effect shots of a rotting corpse. The film moves about as quickly as its ancient cast could during a relay race. The whole thing has arthritis. Read more

    A true ghost story in EVERY sense of the word. A story you tell while sitting around a campfire latr at night as a kid. A star studded cast doesn't hurt, either. An under-rated Alice Krige truly makes this movie. If you are looking for a good ghost movie that will give you chills and have you keeping the light on when you go to bed, this is it. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Varies wildly from hysterically funny to downright awful.
    As you might expect, this "Saturday Night Live" tape is a lot like the show.Some of the skits are fantastic while others fall flat on their face.4-0 out of 5 stars Great Collectoin of SNL sketches
    I definately recommend you buying this collectoin of SNL Game Show Parodies. It features some of the greatest SNL sketches ever. One is Dysfunctional Family Feud, which features Chris Farley at his greatest. Also, you'll enjoy Jackie Roger Jr.'s $100,000 Jackpot Wad, which features Billy Crystal as Sammy Davis, Jr. Pay attention to Rajeevs face when Saammy gives the clue for asparagus. And David Spade gives a great performance in Geek, Dweeb, or Spazz. The only thing that I think hould've been included is the rest of the Stand Up and Win sketch. Overall, this really is a great video. ... Read more

    Ever since Theodor Adorno first raised questions about the possibility of making poetry after Auschwitz, art has been haunted by the possibility of its own failure, the possibility that one of its most remarkable features--its ability to shock the viewer into new ways of seeing--might be eclipsed by the great spectacles of mass death the extermination camps made possible.How could there be poetry after Auschwitz?To this question another could be added: Can there be cinema after Hiroshima?Or is all cinema doomed to failure given the incursions the mushroom cloud has made on our consciousness?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Story of the Indianapolis
    This movie is a very good adaptation of the events surrounding the sinking of the USS Indianapolis. I was impressed with the attention to detail that the producers paid in the movie.For example, it is known that the ship's doctor burned his hands to the point of uselessness while trying to open a door, and sure enough, this scene was excellently covered in the movie.Stacy Keach stars as Captain Charles McVay, and he does an excellent job throughout the film.Richard Thomas portrays the ship's doctor.The scenes of the sinking and the subsequent struggle to survive on the sea is vividly portrayed.I was also impressed with the attention payed to the rescue and Captain McVay's court martial.In fact, this movie does a better job of covering the court martial phase than many of the books I've read on this subject.I would highly recommend this film to anyone who knows or has read about the story of the USS Indianapolis.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Mission of the VCR
    I was interested in the Indianapolis disaster after seeing the movie Jaws, where it is discussed.I was hoping this VHS film would give me some more information, and it might have, if the tape had been of sufficient quality to actually watch.5-0 out of 5 stars Like JAWS, only real, and worse
    This film is quite upsetting, perhaps because the real event on which it is based was probably worse. It is not as if the makers didn't do their best to tell this true horror story. I believe they did, or if the didn't,I don't wish to see a more upsetting version. Don't expect to sleep wellafter you see this. ... Read more

    This film is powerful and stunning.It deals with the question about how to deal with the human being when he is arrived to the golden age.5-0 out of 5 stars The Ballad of Narayama is now one of my favorite films.
    The Ballad of Narayama is about the harsh realities of life in an impoverished Japanese village in the late eighteen hundreds.Sound boring?It's anything but.Sound depressing?Much of it is, but the overwhelming power of the film left my heart full rather than heavy.If you're looking for an incredibly well made film - brilliantly written, acted, filmed and directed - start here.You'll be glad you did.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting character study of a poor community
    The story of a small mountain village whose inhabitants must struggle to eke out their meager living.Theft is not tolerated, and the old are left on a mountaintop to die from exposure.This is a fascinating portrayal of how people are sometimes forced by their circumstances to be as merciless as nature itself.It is easy to condemn many of the practices seen in this film, but we are forced to wonder how we might behave if we were similarly deprived.To what extent is our ethics a product of our relatively luxurious lifestyle?It is also interesting to see how various characters face their conditions--some retain their dignity and humanity, while others display what is most ugly and base in human nature. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece/Guaranteed to shed a tear!!!
    An extraordinary film, The Remains of the Day, brings to the screen the story of an English butler, during the interwar period (and after), whose loyalty, devotion and integrity surpass all known human limitations.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Can Anything Better Be Done In The Remains of The Day?
    If you haven't seen this movie and are asking, "Is it recommendable?"The answer is enthusiastically yes.If you liked the movie and are asking, "Should I buy or rent the DVD?"The answer is yes.The bonus materials are excellent at expressing the intents of the creators of the film.Ishiguro says in a featurette, "I intended the story to be one that could take off quite easily into the metaphorical sphere, so that people could actually apply it to their own lives . . . I wanted it to be universal, human story . . . If I was writing a how to book on how to waste your life, the English butler idea encapsulated two good, decent ways in which you could waste your life. One was emotionally, and the other was politically." John Calley, the producer, said, "We were just dazzled by the possibilities of dramatizing missed chances, lost opportunities - the things that were all victim of inappropriate allegiances that lead to a finally disappointing conclusion."

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hillarious Video - also to clear up a few things...
    Not ALL of the sketches on this video were from Saturday Night Live. In fact, if I remember this correctly, this was actually a prime-time special which aired sometime in the early 90s. I can at least remember watching it on TV back then. These are all sketches by Jack Handy, and its actually mostly original material; maybe a couple or more of the Toonces sketches were actually from Saturday Night Live. So basically this video is a showcase of Jack Handy's humor.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Best of Toonces & Friends
    Toonces & friends was so funny! It's a must own!!! Needs to be re-released and in DVD format. I would certainly buy it for myself and for friends. It would make a great stocking stuffer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely classic...
    Remember when Saturday Night Live was funny? Well, if you don't remember Toonces, then you missed out on some pretty hilarious skits. This particular video is entitled "Toonces and Friends," which kind of urks me because I wanted more of Toonces and less of his friends. However, most of the skits are funny, such as Coach Dobbs, Scruffy the Rat and Abe Lincoln and His Time Machine. The only one I didn't find funny at all was that bizarre Fugitive Couple skit. It was dumb.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of my favorites
    This is one of my favorite movies.Its hilarious and has an amazing amount of creative energy squeezed between its first and last murder victims (not major characters, this isn't a spoiler).It's very different from the first Taxing Woman movie, which I liked but wouldn't rent again.The movie is a beautifully executed exercise in style, with a quirky sound track that keeps the story moving. 2-0 out of 5 stars when the sequel isn't the equal
    Japanese writer director Juzo Itami�s sequel to his 1987 A Taxing Woman again features Nobuko Miyamoto as the title character, only this time she isn't around as much. The charm of the original film, apart from Itami�s attempt to present modern Westernised Japan and deliberately despoiling the traditional stereotype, was Miyamoto. A descendant of Giullietta Masina in Fellini�s La Strada, her child/woman with freckles and a Louise Brooks bob was both clown and a perfect antidote to the patriarchy of her society, as the sole female Tax Officer in Tokyo�s Tax Inspection Bureau. Her relationship with the main villian also allowed her a romantic interest. However, although here she has moments of inspiration - her writhing when pretending to be in cultist�s trance, the dance step she takes as she walks down a corridor, and the way she responds to a knife being drawn on her - Itami isn�t interested in simply repeating the formula of the original, so we have to endure long periods without Miyamoto.

    Editorial Review

    This made-for-TV pilot of the short-lived series is a decent screen interpretation of the DC Comics hero. While investigating a case involving a dangerous street gang called the Dark Riders, crime lab specialist Barry Allen (John Wesley Shipp) is involved in a freak accident. One stormy night, lightning strikes his lab, electrifying his body and shattering chemical-filled beakers all over him. The ensuing reaction radically alters his physiology, bestowing him with the power to race at superhuman speed. Baffled by his transmutation, he follows the guidance of scientist Christina McGee (Amanda Pays) to comprehend his new physiology. After the nihilistic Riders murder one of his family members, Allen utilizes his new power to seek vengeance against them. Even though this TV movie has many of the exaggerated comic-book scenarios and average acting of other superhero films, Read more

    Great news for fans of the Flash television series!In January, the complete series will be released on DVD in a boxed set!
    5-0 out of 5 stars This Show Rules
    I remember when this show first came out. I didnt think it would be any good, but i was wrong. The pilot kinda starts out a little slow but it builds up really well, and lets u get to know the caracters. The main thing is the costume...its areally good looking costume and not one of them cheap costumes that doesnt even look like the carachter. The theme music is really good as well, Danny Elfman does the theme and is really good. This show should have gone on longer than just one season.5-0 out of 5 stars Flash is the king

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of my favorite movies of all time
    this movie works on so many levels. first of all, its engaging from the first minute to the last. its shows an empowered smart woman besting the criminals by her wits and inspiring the weak men around her to rise to greater heights - and should help dispel the concept that Japanese women are weak, and that a woman can be strong with finesse and brains, rather than antagonistic male bashing or kung fu kicks. The main actress is such a rare mixture of charm, quiet strength, intelligence, ande guts ... but with an unbelievabley great smile.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A dangerous comedy
    Itami touched some serious nerves in Japan, when he filmed "Minbo: The Gentle Art of Japanese Extortion" (Japanese title "Minbo Onna" - "Extortion Woman.") His choice to show the Yakuza as intimidating jerks, rather than the usual portrayal of the stylish, Robin Hood-like last remnants of the Samurai tradition, earned him a famously slashed face and possibly a murder. I admit that its history was the reason I sought the movie out.5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie
    What a great movie! I only wish I understood Japanese. I've heard the director was actually stabbed by a Yakuza wanna be who supposedly was taken care of by the real Yakuza. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The First Columbo Episode - Original Airdate Feb 20, 1968
    This pilot episode is terrific. This original episode was the beginning of one of the best TV series of all time with great writing, excellent acting and a all-around quality production.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great, and is a real joy to watch!
    Dr. Ray Flemming (played by Gene Barry) has it all, he's a rich psychiatrist, has powerful friends, and has a beautiful mistress. But, with his wife threatening to pull it all down in a messy divorce, Dr. Flemming decides that it is time to kill her off in the perfect murder. But, disaster strikes when into his apartment walks a little man in a rumpled raincoat, police Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk). Now, with Columbo hot on his trail, Dr. Flemming only needs to keep everything together, but he has one weak link... [Color, released in 1968, with a running time of 1 hour, 33 minutes.]5-0 out of 5 stars They just don�t make them like this anymore.
    People forget that "Columbo" started out not as a 1970s TV series, but as a single TV movie in 1968 that pitted an arrogant genius against a streetwise bulldog of a detective.Falk is wonderful as a criminal's worst nightmare-a rumpled little man who disarms his opponents with his cheap suits and scatterbrained demeanor.In "Prescription:Murder," Columbo is considerably more polished-and aggressive-than in the TV series in his attempt to take down a psychiatrist (played regally by the always-polished Gene Barry) who's murdered his wife in what he thinks is the perfect crime.The production is sumptuous for television fare, with sets and color that rival cinema productions of the time, and even if all of the Columbo telefilms essentially copy Alfred Hitchcock's "Dial M for Murder," the story is quite satisfying.As was standard for the time, the best part of "Prescription: Murder" is watching two great actors spar with each other in a plot that is more chessmatch than car chase.They just don't make them like this anymore. ...
