    5-0 out of 5 stars A Tale As Old As Time Done Right
    Beauty and the Beast may well be the very best animated film Disney ever produced. The characterizations of the leads are great as we have the sweet book loving Belle and the the flawed but totally redeemable "Beast".Gaston and Belle's father are also well drawn and memorable as are the comic relief bearing "enchanted" servants at the castle. There's something for everyone as the story is so romantic it leaves a lot of grown up ladies sighing, the bad guys are not too scary for the little ones and for the rest it is just a great tale.Plus Beauty and the Beast has some of the best songs ever written for a Disney production.No wonder the Broadway musical hasbeen such a hit as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Tied for first for best Disney feature
    I must've been about 10 when I first saw the Lion King and I was practically floored. Those catchy-for-their-own-good songs, the animation(well, me now talking) and that wildebeast stampede. The other one is Beauty and the Beast which for the life of me I can't remember seeing when I was young yet loved every minute of it. Revisiting it now I still love it and on one hand seeing it as a landmark in Disney's catalogue but also one in a series of films that marked a brief creative comeback.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Beauty and the Beast
    Yep, Disney animation. All my students see this movie at some point between leaving high school and when I meet them as university students. Sometimes, their Chinese university teachers show it to them in class. So, I thought I'd see why they love it so much. I'm still wondering. This is a two-page short story, not a film. But on the bright side, if you skip all the songs it's under an hour. I've never enjoyed a singing toon in my life. ... Read more

    "You have brought music back into my home".This is a story about a man, who lost his wife, suffered loneliness, realized the value of his family and embraces his family once again in music and drama, and falls in love with a woman of great culture and life.
    5-0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL TRANSFER OF A PERFECT MOVIE
    SOUND OF MUSIC 40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION (Fox) is the latest digital version of this beloved, timeless, film.The two-disc set features an exceptionally sharp transfer and a rich audio mix but the real treat is the new commentary with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer (this in addition to the late Robert Wise's commentary).

    5-0 out of 5 stars THIS MOVIE KICKS!!
    Well, i figured it would be much eaiser to use the kids reviw-less time spent, more wrighting! A message to everyone who has not seen this movie - Your missing out on a classic. The move is about a girl named carly beth ( Wich in itself is creepy) who is allways getting picked on. Chuck and Steve,two classmates, are allways playing jokes on her, trying to scare her. Which by the way allways works. Carly Beth Wants to get eternal revenge on them for thier crule tricks, so, she goes out to find a scary mask. One day she stumbles into a novelty shop and basicly steals a mask. By the way, allthough this movie was made from smaller childeren, I found the mask scary. The artsits did a great job. It really looks real! Im a teenager and i was scared! Well, slightly anyhow. The rest of the plot developes into a halloween night of revenge and the creepy thruth about the mask at the end.
    5-0 out of 5 stars AWSOME!
    That movie was cool!The mask was reely creepy it was proboly the scaryest goosebumps you should watch it its #1!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Really good!
    I realized something today, this one was better than The Haunted Mask II! I've always liked The Haunted Mask II more than the first. But now, I like the first movie better. It's so cool how the mask becomes one with you. Buy the movie! I can't see why anyone wouldn't like this movie (Except for my brother). ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The wonderful Leslie Caron stars in this Oscar-winning musical fable with a touch of the bizarre. Caron plays Lili, a recently orphaned waif hopelessly in love with a carnival magician. Mel Ferrer plays Paul, a gruff puppeteer who can express his softer side only through his puppets. Sound weird? It is. Caron's performance is lovely. She is, as always, a graceful dancer, but she is also able to pull off the much more difficult task of making Lili pure and innocent without being icky--shetalks to Paul's puppets with complete conviction. (The puppets, by the way, are incredibly creepy.) Younger viewers will take Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!
    I could tell you all about this wonderful movie, but other reviewers have done such a great job.Just let me add one tidbit--the end contains what is probably the most hilarious screen kiss in history (although I'm sure it was meant to seem passionate).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Give That Girl A Contract
    How hard can it be to find a film with elements of homelessness, unemployment, despair, suicidal thoughts, thievery, feigned affection, disability and self-pity? Not very hard you say. But in a G-rated film barely eighty minutes long?
    5-0 out of 5 stars Career High for Caron, Ferrer, and -- Zsa Zsa
    Charles Walters is another, like George Sidney, another incredibly talented director whose 1950s work has been for too long overshadowed by his MGM competitors Cukor, Donen and Minnelli.Walters isn't nearly as flashy as these guys, but where it counts, he's got it all, and as a choreographer, he can design dance films in a way that eluded these other non-dancers.LILI isn't a musical per se, though years later it inspired the memorable Bob Merrill score for CARNIVAL, but it has more than enough music to qualify it as the kind of picture you leave the theater whistling the tunes from.And in Leslie Caron they found the right blend of wistfulness and innocence; even her mouth looks bruised, but her eyes light up whenever she sees her darling puppets.

    I first saw this movie when i was about 6 or 7 and i absolutly loved it. After a few years i forgot about it. I had always thought that lucas black was cute, and after i saw him in fast and furious 3 i remembered the movie. It is really good for kids, and i recomend it to anyone.

    I have been looking for this movie for a while and finally found it. I have loved this movie when it first came out when i was around 8 years old.

    I still remember the first time I read "Gone with the Wind".I was in my native Georgia, in high school, and spent a weekend in bed with the book.Once I started reading it, I could not put it down.Margaret Mitchell's characters were sparkling with vitality and a contagious energy that made you feel as though they were your own neighbors and family!
    1-0 out of 5 stars Oh, those poor racists lost their slaves, how sad!
    (1) Scarlett O'Hara is the least likable "heroine" I've ever seen. She has no redeeming qualities.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Long and laborious, and so very stupid... how is this a classic?
    This is another of those movies I wonder "HOW is this a classic?". Maybe the book was a lot better than the movie! I was watching this, not expecting much, but expecting to earn my respect, the way "Scarface" or "Casablanca", movies I don't like but have earned my respect as classic movies.

    It's a 60's remake of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Maria and Tony come from two different ethnic backgrounds, but what they do share is the love and passion they have for one other. However, their already fueding families would never accept such a union and blood will be shed.

    This is the best movie ever created and that is all that needs to be said.

Dont listen to these people. buy this DVD and you will be blown off your feet.

    I've seen this show on Broadway several times, in community theatre at least twice and have seen the movie more times than I can count, but this DVD edition is absolutely wonderful! Especially great for a film buff like me are the hefty special features and even a copy of the screenplay. This retelling of the Romeo and Juliet story in the streets of New York just can't be beat on any front, from the opening bird's eye views to the closing pull-back from the playground and even the masterful credits (to give everyone time to dry their eyes before the lights came on) is a great addition to any movie musical fan's DVD collection. ...

    This is a great film.It grabs the attention from the opening credits and never lets up.I've seen it several times over the years on TV (in a no doubt "cleaned up for TV version"), but now it's time for a DVD, dammit!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Run for Your Life: Exciting Realism
    An all time great film with Cornel Wilde starring and producing the film. This adventure film offers a respectful portrayal of African life with a guide (Wilde) on his last hunting safari with an arrogant group of white hunters. Insult turns toultimate and dramatic revenge as the insulted tribe acts to even the score in a barbaric and frightening fashion. You pity the ignorant whites as they suffer cruel and horrible death along with their African aides. In respect to Wilde, the tribe allows him a brave's death allowing him to run for his life with a head start with nothing but his bare skin. Wilde is followed by single tribesman staggered in pursuit but his initial success against his adversaries result in pursuit by a well armed platoon of tribesman led by an angry and possessed leader that will not stop. Filmed on location in Africa, Wilde plays the part realistically, almost in documentary style, virtually living the role as he eats what he can in this marathon pursuit. Portraying the harshness of African life in the mid 20th century, you can relate to the cruelty of Darfur today with a scene of Arabs raiding a peaceful village brutally making them slaves for sale. The film features non-stop excitement with a race to the death that reaches its climax, with all characters gasping for air, only at the very end of the film. You won't catch your own breath until the credits pass.

    5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic film. lease the rights! release a DVD!!!!

    Editorial Review

    When Samuel (Lukas Haas), a young Amish boy traveling with his mother Rachel (Kelly McGillis), witnesses the murder of a police officer in a public restroom, he and his mother become the temporary wards of John Book (Harrison Ford), a detective who's been assigned to solve the crime. After suspect lineups and mug-shot books yield nothing, Samuel, in the most memorable scene of the film, recognizes the murderer as a narcotics agent whose picture he sees in the precinct. Once Book realizes that the police chief is in on it, too, he whisks Samuel and Rachel back home to Amish country, where he himself goes into hiding as a plain Amish man. The juxtaposition between the life of the Amish and the violence of inner-city police corruption work surprisingly well for the story, and Kelly McGillis as the falling in love widow gives an almost perfect performance. Directed by Peter Weir, the film is extremely successful in drawing the viewer into its world and, accordingly, is immensely entertaining. The only thing that mars its polish is the one-dimensional, almost cartoonish handling of the upper-echelon police corruption--a subtler, more realistic treatment of this aspect of the story would have rendered the film near perfect.

    I disagree with the characterization of most of the reviews here.I didn't see the father as a heartless man, but as a father trying to protect his overly dull and reclusive daughter from a fortune hunter.At first meeting, he seems very happy that his daughter, Catherine, has found a suitor and welcomes him cordially, but after talking to him he discovers that he is a selfish fortune hunter, a mercenary, who cares only for himself, and nothing for his daughter or anyone else, even his own aunt who has several children.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Animated Film of All Time!
    Without a doubt, "The Prince of Egypt" is my all-time favorite movie. I absolutely love it. I can watch it over and over again, and I don't think I'd ever get tired of it. The animation is superior, the acting is stunning, and the music is powerful.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Werewolf Classic!
    I can't praise this movie highly enough, it is not only the best of the universal monsters series and one of the greatest werewolf films ever made certainly the definitive treatment, but also one of my all time favourite movies. Lon Chaney turns in an outstanding credible performance worthy of his father the legendary man of a thousand faces, actually the entire cast is outstanding, Claude Rains, Maria Ouspenskaya and Bela Lugosi.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Mother of All Werewolf Movies!
    Okay, so Universal Studios' 1941 classic, "The Wolf Man," wasn't the first werewolf film ever made. It is still, by far, the most widely known and loved. I mean, what werewolf is more iconic than the one Lon Chaney Jr. made famous?
    5-0 out of 5 stars "The Way You Walked Was Thorny Through No Fault Of Your Own"
    "Even a man who is pure at heart and says his prayers at night can become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the moon is full and bright." Curt Siodmak penned that poem over 60 years ago as the centerpiece for a film that was to feature Boris Karloff. The film was to be called "Destiny" and provide Karloff with a less lumbering creature than his Frankenstein's monster. The project was put on hold and would eventually re-emerge as "The Wolf Man", this time starring the son of the man of a thousand faces, Lon Chaney, Jr. Chaney would later in life claim this as his favorite role because unlike the Monster or the Mummy it was "completely my own".

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Good Account
    The film is adaptation of the C.S. Foresters first novel in the Hornblower series "The Happy Return", in the USA this was titled "Beat To Quarters" with a little added plot from a "Ship of The Line" (not three novels as other reviewers have stated). The Happy Return was originally written as a stand alone book and C.S. forester conceived the idea whilst on a voyage home after a stint writing a film scripts in Hollywood. Although a very British subject Gregory Peck portrays the part of the stiff Hornblower very well. Forester himself wrote he was very happy with the results and in many ways this version is closer to the original idea than the later TV versions. Gregory Peck plays the man alone in charge of vessels a long way from home. Forester conceived the story not so much a story of ships, heroes and battles but of class barriers and the loneliness of command. The story is about throwing together of Hornblower a Captain of middle class background and Lady Barbara, sister of Duke of Wellington,well played by Virginia Mayo, I regret however that her accent does not bear up to scrutiny very well.He is already married so is not free and in any event he is too low a social class to jump the great social divide. In he close fines of a small vessel a long way form home passions and temptations are strong.The story does depart from the original novel in one important aspect by making Lady Barbara ill on the voyage home so Captain Hornblower can care for sick lady in the already confined circumstance. Apart from that I have very little to argue with. Forester went on to write ten Hornblower novels with this film sitting in the middle of the completed sequence. If you fond of the character then this is very good starting point and to my mind gets to the heart of what the writer originally conceived. I only hope that a good DVD version is put out soon.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Peck is Perfect...
    Peck is the perfect Hornblower, when you read the books this is who you will see after watching this wonderful film,(I have seen it on TCM).C.S. Forester, the author of the books wrote the screenplay and it shows, very true to the character and he did a wonderful job in working in the best from the first three books, which I feel are the best ones he wrote.(If you have a teenage son, do him a favor and buy him the complete set, they are much better than anything on TV and are great reads for adults also.)The current TV movies on HH should do the same and put some teeth into the writing and stick closer to the books.This film should really be put on dvd and they should add a lot of extras concerning the author, how popular the books were around the world and also include a doc. about the time period of "iron men and wooden ships"...

    Editorial Review

    Shot on location in numerous countries, this ambitious Wim Wendersfantasy takes Sam Neill, Solveig Dommartin, William Hurt, and a ragtag group in pursuit around the world and back again. Though set in 1999 under the shadow of impending disaster as a wobbly nuclear satellite threatens to Chernobyl the planet, the leisurely gait of their worldwide escapades has a distinctly '40s-era decadence. The ultimate object of their quest is a machine that records visual information from one person and reconstructs it in the brains of others--granting the miraculous power of sight to the blind for one thing, but even more mystically, enabling a person's dreams to be recorded. When the film seeks resolutions on the most intimate questions of the human soul which dovetail with the possibility of a destroyed world, the film is hampered by the VHS running time, which subtracts several hours from the laser disc version. But numerous joys, not least among them Jeanne Moreau and Max von Sydow as Hurt's parents, inhabit this thought-provoking film. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars an underappreciated classic
    It is simply baffling that this film is not available on DVD.It is a classic and beautiful film...raising the bar for what other artist directors can aspire towards.Invest the effort to track this film down and be rewarding with a new, wider horizon in your life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gets Better with Age
    Back in the 90s, I knew there was a new movie that U2 was providing the music for and I said great, can't wait to see it.Then I saw it... the US cut of Until the End of the World.And I said what?Why did I want to see this piece of crap?It made NO sense at all.

    On a June evening in 1968 I was awakened by my dad, a Marine Raider and one of the Chosen Few, at ten o'clock PM, that's 2200, to watch The DI... five hours before I was to report to the Armed Forces Induction Center, Oakland, Calif. I won't ever forget that movie session with my dad, and as one other person commented, ya never forget your DIs, mine were SSgt Gonzales, SSgt Rogers, and Cpl Sexton.
    5-0 out of 5 stars outstanding work, semper fI
    All I can say is amen to the rest of the reviews on this great movie!! and Agree wholeheartly to the question raised by almost everyone, "Why hasn't this movie as well as a few others been released on DVD" I am also a marine VET, the attention to detail to this movie made so long ago "1957 I believe" is superb for the time it was released. I have a vhs copy and only wish I could get it on DVD also.

    Editorial Review

    John Waters's goofy, 1990 comedy about a Baltimore girl (Amy Locane) who can't decide if she should remain "good" in her 1954 world or hang out with the motorcycle boys is funny in a scene-by-scene way, but doesn't quite gel into the grand piece the director was hoping for. The cast is exceptionally likable, however, including Johnny Depp as an Elvis type and Iggy Pop as a chattering loony. The best material is set in a fringe world of bikers and losers on the outskirts of town, and Waters writes some hilarious sardonic dialogue for the characters. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Movie Set In the 50s Since Grease!
    "Cry Baby" is the coolest movie since Grease that deals with this time period. The songs are good and the actors in the film are really excellent. I'm a fan of Johnny Depp, and he came through in this movie and him in a lead role set in the 50s worked! This movie is not only a movie that takes place in the 50s, but it feels like a movie that was made in that decade as well. Everything that was big in the movies during that time are seen and used in here. I really enjoyed how this film also dealt with issues people had then and the way people acted and thought.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Campy...cute
    Sort of like Grease/Outsiders gone crazy.Good movie and performances.I had no idea Johnny Depp could sing.I enjoyed the "jail house rock" spoof, and the music is great. Not a GREAT movie though, couldn't touch Grease or American Graffiti. But it IS worth watching.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Waters Gets Wet With Cry Baby
    John Waters who likes to be called the "Pope of Trash" has done a lot of films that are outrageous in style such as "Cecil B. Demented," "Pecker," & "Hairspray." "Cry Baby" is a 1990 musical that is utterly silly and frothy, but works nevertheless. Johnny Depp, now a big box office draw and critical success with Oscar nominations for "Finding Neverland" & "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," can be proud of the rockabilly Elvis-type singer he plays named Wade "Cry Baby" Walker. Depp performs his "Jailhouse Rock" type number with great energy and rebellion. Having him run through sewage pipes in his underwear is enough to set many a teenage girl's hearts aflutter. The female lead is Allison played by Amy Locane who worked in other films like "Airhead," "The Mummy" & "Bongwater." She does a good Olivia Newton John-like "Grease" character of the square girl who has a crush on Depp's bad boy. Stephen E. Miller who was recently seen in "RV" with Robin Williams and previously in "The Accused" with Jody Foster does a good job as the square boyfriend Baldwin who loses his girl to Cry Baby.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Madsen Makes the Film
    So -- I really REALLY like this movie.But not for the plot.It has a great idea...but then becomes rather cliche.Outside of Madsen, I think the acting is weak, the directing is okay, the writing could have been stronger.Michael Madsen -- as always -- is phenomenal.Understated and reserved, as I have typically seen in his work, I felt he made the film something worth sticking with.I wanted to see how his character developed and how he worked with this multi-faceted role that he brought more depth to than I saw with any of the other actors.For that alone I love the movie.With anyone else in the role of Mickey, I think the movie would not have held my interest.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It is sensual and hot
    this is a great story line. First you think Michael Madsen is a murder and a bad guy. Then you end up liking him. He is, - what can I say......? A HE-MAN! He is masculin and he is charming.2-0 out of 5 stars A mediocre direct-to-TV thriller.
    "A house in the hills" is a quite poor b-thriller shot in Luxenburg to be shown directly on TV. Director Wiederhorn makes an acceptable job creating an suspense atmosphere, but storyline is so poor that often the only aspect that keeps the film working are the performances by Michael Madsen, an usual face in this type of movies, and a Helen Slater trying to get rid of her earlier comedy image. Personally, the only thing that kept me watching was a couple of scenes where Slater appears nude. The rest is not so bad, but certainly it is nothing we have not seen before a thousand times. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A movie for this day, too
    This is one of the greatest anti-war movies to come out of Hollywood, but it is great not only for that.It is blessed by brilliant acting, tight directing, outstanding production design, cinematography and score, all of which got it nominated for eight Academy Awards.In almost any other year The Sand Pebbles would have won several of those, but 1966 was a high water mark for Hollywood, and this gripping epic came away with none.Google 1966 for the Academy Awards and you will see why.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This Dramatic film has it all.
    A wide array of brilliant actors are like gems around the crowning performance of Steve McQueen.But the key hero in this story is a man who is at once tragic as well as heroic.To me, the film's theme is man's fight against our lesser urges; racism, greed, rabid nationalism, you name it.The battle is joined again and again.But unlike many Hollywood films, there is no certainty that right will prevail over might.And sometimes, in trying to do the right thing, characters are faced with tragic mistakes, or face terrible consequences.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I Sound My Barbaric YAWP Over The Roofs Of The World
    I used to love this Peter Weir movie and now sadly it seems far too idealistic and implausible to me. I wish it didn't. I've probably seen Dead Poet's Society a dozen times and while I still think it is a beautiful motion picture in its message about how the power of the written word as a tool for free thought is a life-changing force, I can't seem to find it in me to think it's possible that a teacher could have reached teenaged boys in quite that way. Well, I guess that's why we have films, so we can see things we wouldn't in life. All this said, I do believe Dead Poet's Society is a classic. If you haven't seen it, you probably should. It is an uplifting, often gloriously beautiful, always embraceable film with a solid cast that includes Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, and living theatrical legend, Norman Lloyd.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Raises interesting questions
    This film is superlative by every standard.Robin Williams does a brilliant job in his role as a semi-bohemian poetry teacher with a passion for challenging orthodoxy.As mentioned so many times by past reviewers, Ethan Hawke's performance is similarly powerful, as are those of the other boys.Sets and cinematography deserve praise too, for capturing the "feel" not only of the school but the era in which it is set.The script is superb as well.It captures all the angst felt by the young men as they begin to question the world they have been thrust into and their places in it.
    4-0 out of 5 stars "Captain, my captain..."
    The influx of teacher/student movies will never cease.That said there are those that succeed on every level like `A Beautiful Mind' or `Mr. Holland's Opus' and even `Dangerous Minds' to an extent.Then you have those that fail miserably.But this film is neither.It failed to move me in ways never done before, but it also carried enough weight to make the experience worth the time spent viewing it.`Dead Poets Society' is a film about being who you are despite what the rest of society wants you to be.It's about expressing yourself in the face of adversity.The idea of a bunch of male college students secretly sneaking off campus to read poetry is pretty lame and far fetched, but it's the ferocity in their eyes while in the class room that makes up for the plot.
