    4-0 out of 5 stars Probably a 5
    This movie takes all the clamation classics I remember as a kid and turns them upside down like only Tim Burton can.A twisted tale of the characters of Halloween town taking over Christmas after kidnapping Santa Claus.Though some of the characters are a little frightening for the young ones, the tone is mostly upbeat and funny.This is a charming, though very short movie.The dvd itself is loaded with great extras and worth the price two times over. ...

    Editorial Review

    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

    I cannot imagine why this is not on a DVD, version that can be played on any DVD in the USA.I have been seeking one for two years now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I NEED THIS MOVIE TO BE RELEASED!!!!!
    I totally GOT this movie!!I LOVE LOVE Barbra Streisand, and I have seen ALL her Movies.Yentl is one of my all time favorites!
    5-0 out of 5 stars How could anyone give this film anything but 5 stars?
    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. I don't understand how a classic like this is not on DVD? How could anyone give this film anything but 5 stars? ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Romantic Sleeper
    Crossing Delancey tells the story of two people from different socio-economic backgrounds who meet and stumble to try to form a relationship.Izzy is a young professional who meets Sam through her Jewish grandmother's matchmaker.When Izzy learns that her "match" sells pickles she's quick to try and hide her date from her friends.She's also quick to judge.Meanwhile, Sam has wholeheartedly fallen for Izzy, oblivious to the fact that she's a little embarrassed about his job.Can she overcome her preconceived notions about the man?

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my top ten favorites
    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 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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 10 SUPERSTARS!!!
    This magnificent film will hold you spellbound to the very end, and it deserves a place in your video library.PLEASE GO TO AMAZON'S "TELL US WHAT YOU WANT" PAGE AND REQUEST IT'S RELEASE ON DVD!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Could well be the best DVD on the market
    Given that the movie is wonderful, perhaps the last of the great Hollywood musicals and a charmer for all generations, this DVD is still remarkably wonderful. Disney has done a clean-up job on the film that makes it shine. The audio is rich and wonderful, including the all-important ORIGINAL stereo soundtrack (feh to multi-channel remixes!). The special features even manage to elucidate the process of filmmaking in manner intriguing to both the cineaste parent and Mary-mad children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars thank you, Julie and Dick (and Walt, of course)!
    I think I like this movie more now than when I was a kid! And the extra features on this 2-DVD set are absolutely wonderful. Great interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, one of the Sherman brothers (songwriter), and the girl who played Jane that really show how special the movie-making process was, which then translated to joy on the screen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful story and lovely music
    Mary Poppins must be one of the loveliest filming produced by Disney studios. This musical movie is extremely well produced and has outstanding actor work. The scenes are of high quality despite the whole story was filmed indoors. Even the little part of London was reproduced in Disney studio. The music from Sherman brothers is world famous and well known. When you hear the first tunes, you might say: Hey I've heard that somewhere! Having this DVD on your shelf would please both you and your younger fellows. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars SHE COULD NEVER DO ANYTHING WRONG
    LUCILLE BALL LIT UP THE SCREEN IN THIS MOVIE. AT HER AGE SHE STILL MOVED AND DANCED WITH TOTAL GRACE AND BEAUTY. I LOVED SEEING HER IN THOSE BEAUTIFUL COSTUMES AND BOSOM BUDDY'SWAS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SEEN. THE SEEN WHERE EVERYONE SINGS "MAME" AND SHE GLOWINGLY STRUTS AROUND MAKES ME CRY. NEVER BEFORE OR AFTER HER HAS ANY TELEVISION STAR IMPACTED SO MANY PEOPLE. I LOVE LUCY AND I WAS TIRED OF READING SO MANY BAD REVIEWS FOR THIS MOVIE WHEN I LOVED IT!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lucille Ball was Mame, Sorry Angela
    I sure loved Lucille Ball in Mame she was so talented and graceful, I don't understand why Lucy got soooo many nasty, and mean comments about her singing and dancing, ITS NOT FAIR !!! One of The reason why Lucy got panned by the critics so Bad was, their were many critics that wantedMiss Angela Lansbury to play Mame in the movie version, although Angela Lansbury originated the role on B-way in 1966, she was past over for the movie role beacuse she had no star power at that time,Don't get me wrong she's a great star but Lucy's star Shines alot brighter the angela's.In 1974 the musicals were long out of fashion and people wanted more reality in their movies,thats another factor, plus the upset critics with their loss of angela not portraying mame, I think today we should give Mame another look with a little more appreciation toward Lucille Ball and to praise not criticize. Heres my vote for Mame on DVD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mame vs Auntie
    Mame is a fantastic piece of campery, big productions, fab costumes and sets, witty one liners and Bea Arthur. Auntie Mame was one of the worst films I have ever had to sit through. Rosalind Russell shouts almost every line, in a vain attempt to steal every scene, and although it came first, it is an infinitely inferior piece of film-making when compared to the delight that is Mame. Ms Ball had absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, and praise be that Ms Russell didn't get the chance to turn Mame into the travesty that is Auntie. ... Read more

    I love this movie almost as much as I love the first one! While not entirely true to the books, it does at least pull most of it stories from the books in one form or another. Whether or not the stories are pure L.M. Montgomery, this movie is true Anne. It's worth all five hours to get to the ending!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Endearing Sequel
    This is an impressive sequel and a very good looking follow-up to ANNE OF THE GREEN GABLES. It is great to see Megan Follows as Anne Shirley once again. Megan Follows is just perfect in this role. Anne Shirley is now a bit older, has become a teacher and is quite involved in a society away from her rural settings. This gradual progression of characters and story from this original is very welcome and enjoyable. It is very endearing in many ways as was the original

    Editorial Review

    This '90s update of the Spencer Tracy-Elizabeth Taylor hit is a mix of the pleasant and the silly, a nice enough movie but a little too controlled to become particularly interesting. Steve Martin plays the aging patriarch who is threatened by his daughter's engagement and not-quite-willing to let her go. The writing-directing team of Charles Shyer and Nancy Meyers provides Martin's character with a perhaps too-broad range of comic responsiveness to the situation, some of it gentle (a ritual game of basketball between dad and his little girl) and some of it slapstick (Martin sneaking around his prospective in-laws' house and encountering a guard dog). Martin Short turns up as a wedding coordinator--which has deliriously delicious possibilities--but his inventiveness doesn't quite strike the chord this time. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than usual remake
    Whereas many remakes of beloved films stumble and fall, this "Father of the Bride" shines in its own right.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Still adorable
    Steve Martin hit his stride with this '90s remake.Of course I completely understand the melt down and the freaking out about the money. $250/ a head in '91-was a lot of money.Then I was freakng out because the little boy that played his son looks like the exact replica of the little boy in Signs--but how could that be those films were more than a decade apart.Did a quick search and found that the two actors are brothers.But they could pass for twins when they were younger.Anyway, back to the movie.This a good film about a father learning to let go of his little girl and his checkbook.

    3-0 out of 5 stars not one of my favorites
    Diane Keaton has always been my favorite actress and I love every single one of her movies. But this movie I don't care for much because she's not really in it for a long. If the movie wouldn't have had Diane keaton i wouldn't have cared for it to much. One of the worst movies i have ever seen with diane keaton. the second father of the bride is much better than the first and it doesn't matter which one of them you watch first.i can't tell you what the second one is about you just have to watch it yourself. ...

    Editorial Review

    The script for this movie was written by outrageous poet-author-alcoholic Charles Bukowski. But director Barbet Schroeder makes it into an oddly amusing story of a pugnacious drunk writer (Mickey Rourke) based on Bukowski himself. Rourke spends almost all of his time at the bar, struggling with sobriety (he's against it) and, occasionally, having fistfights with the bartender (Frank Stallone). He meets another souse, a formerly attractive woman (Faye Dunaway), and gets involved with her, which means they drink copious amounts of liquor and try to have sex. Not much happens beyond that, yet this film is strangely entertaining, for all of its bottom-of-the-barrel humanity. Maybe that's the secret: "Oh, the humanity...." Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Rourke could've been more subtle
    I was in a Bukowski phase when I purchased and watched this movie, which I found disappointing. I liked the storyline, but thought Mickey Rourke overacted. Faye Dunaway had her role pegged, though.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A staggering good time
    Who but Mickey Rourke could adequately portray a character based on the supremely inimitable Charles Bukowski? In a film that is both dingy and bright, Rourke staggers from the screen a pickled genius and gives a stellar performance as the hard-drinking, alley-brawling, pickup line-snarling Henry.
    4-0 out of 5 stars I should own this movie
    But I don't because only rubes and collector freaks own movies. I never understood why people buy movies. How many times must you watch a movie to make up what it would cost to rent it? Something like 10-15 times, or less, depending on where you rent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sumptuous Musical
    "The Phantom of the Opera" may not be my new favorite movie, but it's certainly one of the most sensually appealing.It succeeds in being an appealing musical, romance, mystery, and period piece all at once.Everything in the movie is a treat for the eyes and the ears, from the rich period sets and costumes to the Andrew Lloyd Webber songs to the gorgeous cast members.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
    I love this movie! The scenes like the first one where it goes to color is beautiful. Of course, I'm very suprised about something: the fact that some adults don't even know why his hair changes when his mask is taken off!!(No offense to them). So, why does this happen? The black hair is a WIG!!! Look closely and you'll realize that before he goes out in that climatic scene, he checks his hair; correct me, WIG. When Christine takes off his mask, his hair literallycomes off as a WIG. I love the music, too, especially the phantom of the opera song (The phantom of the opera is there/inside my mind).Watch it!!!!! :-)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really not enough stars for this DVD
    Someone, quite recently, as well as long ago, said that the film version of the musical was dead. If memory serves, they said it died with "Hello Dolly" or some such work. Anyone who believes that will need to watch "Phantom: on DVD.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not the best Introduction to the American Revolution
    Had very high hopes for this movie of introducing the American Revolution in an entertaining way. The movie is an adaptation of the Newbery Award winning historical novel Johnny Tremain which is set during the American Revolution. The movie is okay but not at the exceptional level one generally thinks of for a Disney movie. The highlight of the DVD is Walt Disney talking about human freedom in the Special Feature The Making of Johnny Tremain and Introduction to the movie. As a possible alternative around Independence day would recommend the PBS documentary American Experience John and Abigail Adams which also covers this period.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Johnny Tremain - DVD
    This DVD covered a lot of the material mentioned in our school's Socical Studies curriculum.I used it as a supplement my curriculum because it provides a great visual of this time of history.I felt the themes of the importance of religion in peoples' lives, apprenticeship, rise of patriotism, and the means the minute men used to fight the war were explained well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars FROM THE "BOSTON TEA PARTY" TO "PAUL REVERE'S RIDE" JOHNNY TREMAIN ENTERTAINS!
    "Johnny Tremain" is among the most entertaining historical films ever produced.Disney's American Revolution films, such as "Dr. Syn Alias the Scarecrow," "The Swamp Fox" tv series, and "Johnny Tremain" are not only enjoyable feature films, they give the viewer a history lesson in the bargain.Young Hal Stalmaster plays Johnny, who is the son of a rich aristocratic woman who dies, leaving her son a sterling silver cup with the engraving LYTE on it.Johnny Lyte Tremain is secretly the heir to an English noble family of great wealth.As the story unfolds, he's caught up in the early stages of the coming American Revolution, with the Boston Tea Party and the Ride of Paul Revere to be played out with great performances by all.This movie was made for tv, however, plays as a theater release.The dvd transfer has some glitches and the color is not as vibrant as it should be.I taped this movie from the Disney channel and my vhs tape copy is more clear and the color has more depth.I highly recommend "Johnny Tremain" to fans of "Dr. Syn Alias the Scarecrow," "The Swamp Fox" tv series, and to all Disney dvd collectors."Johnny Tremain" is a definite essential to American history buffs and makes a great addition to any dvd library.

    This gorgeous adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery's classic children's story is well worth watching with the whole family. Produced for Canadian television, it's one of those rare productions that actually sticks to the book and even enhances it through first-rate performances and an excellent script.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this movie today as much as I loved it when I was 10....
    I saw this movie for the first time when I was something like 10 years old, and immediately fell in love with Anne Shirley. I have now read everything by L.M. Montgomery that I can get my hands on, and am as big a fan as ever. This movie is a beautiful version of a beautiful book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Way things should be
    "Anne of Green Gables" shows how a combination of love, honesty, hard work, tolerance and integrity is the perfect mix for bringing out the best from the potential in anyone, even in a non-traditional family. It's an incredibly refreshing break from today's society, where lying and manipulation have become almost a norm in much of the world we know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic
    All the great reviews written previously say it all - Anne of Green Gables the movie is a timeless classic of the classic novel. I've been watching this movie since I've been a child, and I still watch it as an adult. A movie like this doesn't need "special features" for it to be attractive as a DVD(Although the commentary is great!). Just the fact that no matter how long I keep this and how often I watch this movie, it won't change like VHS does. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Overall Best film version of JANE EYRE
    I've been having a "Jane Eyre-athon."There are many good versions of this gothic story of the fight between worldliness and virtue.Many have one really outstanding element, but this version, with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine remains overall the best.Like most, it eliminates much of the second half of the book, which is the really important part for Bronte, who is one of the finest religious thinkers of her age.There are so many bests in this version, it will always be hard to top for getting Bronte right.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Adaptation
    I have loved this film since I was a teenager.While, as many others have said, this film version does not match the story in the book EXACTLY, it does, however, invoke the spirit of the work in such a way that it captures the essence of the story without being too long and plodding.I think Orson Welles was magnificent as Edward Fairfax Rochester, tortured lord and master of Fairfield.His resonant speaking voice and his dark, brooding features bring to life on film the Mr. Rochester that I saw in my mind upon first reading the novel.To those who may say Mr. Welles was "too ugly to look at" please remember that Edward Rochester was described as an ugly man.His beauty lies in the strengh of his soul and the strength o his love for Jane.And to those who say Joan Fontaine was too pretty to play Jane let me say this, both pretty and plain are in the eye of the beholder.Compared to the glittering beauties of Hollywood in that era some may say that Ms. Fontaine was just as plain as Jane Eyre was compared to the rich and well dressed daughters of the aristocracy thet Mr. Rochester was wont to socialize with.All in all, I still feel that this is a superb adaptation of a superb classic novel.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Janet!
    We think this version is quite good, but could be improved, because they missed out, or reararanged the order of important scenes!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Somehow, I can never resist watching a broadcast of this one
    I shall confess that this film is a 'guilty pleasure' for me as well. The story is unrealistic and melodramatic. Lana Turner's outdated, 'plastic' leading lady ways show that her acting abilities are on the lowest level of anyone except the 'cute and perky' Sandra Dee. Dialogue is dreadful, from the photographer's saying he'll have a 'love affair with Lora's bones' to Lora's telling Annie, whom she had known and shared a residence with for over a decade, that she never thought she had any friends.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Love, Race, Mothers and Daughters
    This movie is a classic.Although, I can barely stand to watch it.It takes me on an emotional rollercoaster ride.I bought it for my mother on Mother's Day.Growing up, she and I would watch it everytime it came on television.I wanted her to be able to see this tear-evoking memorable movie any time she pleases.Great Mother's Day gift.

    Editorial Review

    Grace Bradley (Loretta Swit) is called in to direct the community church's child production of the Christmas play. Unfortunately, this is the year the six Herdman children--the dirtiest, most feared neighborhood kids--decide to bully themselves into the lead roles. Barbra Johnson wrote the teleplay based on her novel for this 1978 TV broadcast that has become a favorite over the years. A 9-year-old Fairuza Balk makes her debut as Grace's daughter and narrates the story centering on the seemingly parentless troupe of ragtag ruffians. Of course, the town believes the play is hopelessly lost, but this is Christmas Eve and miracles do happen. Kids can find meaning in the Bible's tale and the Herdmans certainly can bring a fresh take on the age-old story. Not as rambunctious or preachy as later modern-day Christmas tales, the less-than-an-hour production stays away from giving anyone his or her comeuppance and is easily digestible for the whole family.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This movie is great!
    This movie is an excellent film! Directed by Steven Spielberg and written by George Lucas and Lawrence Kasdan, this film is superior to most action films in history.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Soft spot for this one
    Amidst all the adventure, I consider this a sentimental favorite because it was one fo the first movies I can remember seeing with my future husband as a young girl. Nothing like a scary adventure movie for holding handsin a movie theatre. And it is a great movie. I think it is the best in the trilogy...but I hear another is coming.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Ford really delivers..."
    Steven Spielberg directs this action-adventure, which has something in it for everybody.Action, adventure, and even a tiny bit of romance.The plot is simple-Hitler's men have discovered Tanice (not sure how its spelled), "one of the possible resting places of the Lost Ark."Indiana Jones, also known to his peers as "Indy", is hired to recover the Ark.The only problem is that Indy has to duke it out with some very nasty Nazis in order to successfully recover the ancient artifact.The Nazis are assisted by a French archaeologist named Beloch (not sure how that's spelled either) who can be considered Indy's archrival.If Jones is to succeed, he must use all his strength and wit to thwart his adversaries, whether they be gun-toting Nazis, sword-wielding Arabs or deadly snakes.Throw in a great (and I mean GREAT) musical score by John Williams, a charismatic hero (Harrison Ford really delivers in the role of Indy) and some pretty darn good special effects, and the result is a movie for the ages!This is one movie I can watch over and over and over and...well, you get the idea.Its non-stop action really packs a punch that is all too often missed in movies today; there is always something interesting going on in this movie.I own this film in the "pan-and-scan" format, which is considered by many to be the "poor" standard of viewing movies.Fortunately, this movie is so good that watching it in ANY format is a real treat!

    Editorial Review

    In a time when race and religion don't separate people, but extra powers and mutated characteristics do, two longtime friends, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen) part ways, only to become rivals over the issue of how much patience they should have with "normal" people. Living lives that scare most humans lacking the "X-factor" (a special power such as telekinesis), they fight over changing the general population into mutants. Xavier decides to help mutants in a special school while waiting for humanity to be more accepting, while Magneto opts to change all "normal" people into mutants in order to create a mutant-only world. Leading a group of four powerful X-Men (and women) to rescue one lost girl (the mutant Rogue, played by Anna Paquin)--and the entire population of New York--Xavier recruits a new member to their group: Logan (Hugh Jackman), better known as Wolverine, joins the team with much reluctance, only to prove very valuable to the rescue effort.

    3-0 out of 5 stars I needs me some Kelsey!!!
    It was a lot better than I thought it would be and has definitely raised the bar for all other Marvel movies to come,in every aspect of film making. Sure it was different in someways than the book, but it could stand alone from them and more importantly it was good. As much as I liked the cheesy 70's and 80's Marvel movies(like Dr. Strange starring Peter Wooten in the title roll, thank you very much), Marvel movies to come will have to measure up to this one. And that's a good thing because sometimes Marvel doesn't place as much emphasis on story telling quality as it does on marketing. But they made one stupendous,unforgivable error. They left out Hank McCoy,aka The Beast! Woe betide them! I'm looking forward to a sequal, and I'll really enjoy it more if it contains the only X-Man who can fight crime in his swim trunks,differentiate between Keats & Yeats,type his doctoral thesis with his toes, the thinking man's Tarzan...........The Bombastic BEAST!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great first movie rendition of a comic!
    I couldn't wait for this movie to hit the theaters.Likewise, I could wait to pick up the DVD.There are only a few criticisms to make if you, like me, grew up ready the X-men comics.For one, unlike their comic book superhero characters, the women (in particular, Storm and Jean) are much too weak.While on the flip side, traditionally weak characters like the Toad are made into formidable enemies with powers they never had in the comics.Although there is a real effort to make up for that in the sequels, it stood out in this one.For another, while many of the truly evil characters in the comics are loners with their own agenda, everyone unites under the leadership of the misguided Magneto in the movie (a sad fact that is not corrected in the sequels).Other than that (there are others but I won't bore you with the details), there are the small liberties with character profiles that one should expect when any piece of literature is brought to the big screen - like Rouge and Ice Man as teenagers instead of adults.Nevertheless, overall the movie is a great one in that it is a firs of its kind.

    5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT FLICK
    Not as good as X2, but still a great movie. I never owned the regular release of this movie, in fact I just got the "1.5" version of it like 2 weeks ago used in Hastings for like $10.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent And Gritty Crime Drama!
    With so many reviews already posted here on amazon, I really don't think there is any more that I could add, other than to say this is an amazing crime-thriller. From the very beginning, to the very end this is the quintessential mob film of all time. The story of Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) has already been discussed, I would just like to add that if there is anyone who has not seen this classic, do so. More importantly, it belongs in your DVD collection.
    5-0 out of 5 stars These are working guys, living it up and "Earning" at all costs.
    Scorcese & Pileggi's masterpiece on the life of Henry Hill as a Brooklyn NY mob wise-guy is great film. While not my favorite Martin Scorsese movie it is a stunning achievement, and one of his very best movies.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best film of the 90's
    GoodFellas is Martin Scorsese's masterpiece, following the life of a gangster named Henry Hill. It charts his way up from working at a mob-controlled cabstand to becoming a member of the gang, and eventually turning to the witness protection program to save his life. The movie is full of unforgettable moments, particularly the famous "Do you think I'm funny" scene. Joe Pesci steals every scene he's in as the murderous psycopath Tommy, and rightfully won the best supporting actor Oscar. This movie contains what may be the best movie sequence ever made: Henry, while high on cocaine, driving around town running a mixture of normal and mob errands (e.g. In narration, he says: I had to stop by Sandy's place to mix the cocaine then get home and check the tommato sauce for dinner...) while being followed by a helicopter. The scene is shot extremely haphazardly, making you feel as though your'e in Henry's place. This movie's greatness cannot be expressed in words; you have to see it for yourself. Also recommended: Miller's Crossing, Casino, Taxi Driver, and The Godfather. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Could well be the best DVD on the market
    Given that the movie is wonderful, perhaps the last of the great Hollywood musicals and a charmer for all generations, this DVD is still remarkably wonderful. Disney has done a clean-up job on the film that makes it shine. The audio is rich and wonderful, including the all-important ORIGINAL stereo soundtrack (feh to multi-channel remixes!). The special features even manage to elucidate the process of filmmaking in manner intriguing to both the cineaste parent and Mary-mad children.
    5-0 out of 5 stars thank you, Julie and Dick (and Walt, of course)!
    I think I like this movie more now than when I was a kid! And the extra features on this 2-DVD set are absolutely wonderful. Great interviews with Julie Andrews, Dick Van Dyke, one of the Sherman brothers (songwriter), and the girl who played Jane that really show how special the movie-making process was, which then translated to joy on the screen.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Delightful story and lovely music
    Mary Poppins must be one of the loveliest filming produced by Disney studios. This musical movie is extremely well produced and has outstanding actor work. The scenes are of high quality despite the whole story was filmed indoors. Even the little part of London was reproduced in Disney studio. The music from Sherman brothers is world famous and well known. When you hear the first tunes, you might say: Hey I've heard that somewhere! Having this DVD on your shelf would please both you and your younger fellows. ... Read more
