    2-0 out of 5 stars I Don't See Why People Like This
    I'm sorry, but I really don't! It's a style called Celtic Drama, which means it's a combination of stories w/o words and traditional Irish Dancing.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Dream Come True After Eurovision--"RIVERDANCE"
    With tremendous applause and a standing ovation at the 1994 Eurovision's 7 minute intermission; Michael Flatley, Jean Butler, and an Irish troupe of dancers tapped their way into the record books. It was all that was talked about that night long ago. "Riverdance" was born soon after.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best of All the Riverdance Shows
    I have seen this particular show several times on video that I rented a few years back. I have never been able to find it anywhere since, in any video store or anywhere else. I have also seen the other Riverdance shows done in New York and Geneva, but this show is by far, the BEST Riverdance show ever! The collaboration of the Riverdance Company, Bill Whelan, Michael Flatley and everyonelse that was involved in this show is just pure magic! As much as I have enjoyed seeing the other Riverdance shows and Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance -- there just seems to be something very special about this show! Hope you will get it reproduced very soon! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I bought a DVD player because of this release...
    I am really sorry that this version of Yellow Submarine has gone out of print.When it came out in 1999, I had not yet purchased a DVD player, but I did immediately buy the VHS version.It was so wonderful, SO wonderful, and I read so many great reviews about the DVD, that I went out and bought the DVD, before I had a DVD player.Then not only did I buy a DVD player but also a new Kenwood receiver so I could get all the benefits of the surround sound.That's how crazy I was.The really crazy thing is, it was worth every penny.Plus it spoiled me.I expected every DVD release to show the same care and quality that Yellow Submarine did.The care that they lavished upon all aspects of this release, the video quality, the INCREDIBLE AUDIO QUALITY and the wonderful extras, are amplified by the horrible job that Miramax did on A Hard Day's Night.It's a shame that Apple could not was not able to get control of that.What a disgrace Miramax made of a classic.Makes me wonder what is happening with HELP!, Magical Mystery Tour and Let It Be.I pray daily that Miramax isn't able to get their grubby little hands on anymore Beatle product.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Once upon a time... far-far away... behind the iron curtain...,
    ...there lived a girl in a big city. She loved to read, watch the movies and listen to the music. Her favorite group for many years had been the Fab Four from Liverpool, "The Beatles". Her wish was to collect one day all their Albums on LPs (yes, guys, it was that long ago). She had a dream to see her idols on the concert or in the movies but it was impossible. Their movies were not shown behind the iron curtain; as for the concert, they would love to come to her country but were not allowed. Then, one day, her mom told her that in the cinema close to their house, the retrospective of the British Animated Movies would be shown and she mentioned one of the titles, "Yellow Submarine". The girl could not believe her ears. Could that be true? Did the yellow submarine traveled many seas and made it to her city? Ringo, John, George, and Paul did not stuck in the sea of time; they emerged from a "Vacuum Flask to Nowhere and with the little help of a "Nowhere Man", Jeremy, they walked through the sea of holes "that stopped their minds from wondering"... The girl had to find out if it was true.

    I first watched Moonwalker when I was 8 years old and I have been hooked on it ever since!! How could they wait this long to release it on DVD? Moonwalker is evidence as to why America fell in love with Michael in the first place. Speed Demon, Bad, Dirty Diana- Moonwalker IS Michael Jackson.Please release it on DVD as soon as possible!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A great intro for children to music appreciation!
    My 5 yo loves classical music, and I found these videos at my library.He loves them! I appreciate how Marsalis uses classical music to help us understand jazz, which I like but never really "appreciated." I'm sure we'll borrow them more as he ages and can comprehend more and more of the content!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Music by one of its greatest lovers
    Wynton Marsalis, one of the greatest musicians of his generation, has always been involved with teaching music. This video is a real must for those who love music - not only jazz, Marsalis' speciality, but all kindsof music. The fourth part, "Tackling the Monster" (in whichMarsalis shows his 12-step method of practicing music), is my favorite one.Inspiring. ... Read more

    Using interviews with his son and daughters, his brother, the writers, choreographers, and conductors he worked with, and many of his friends, and clips of his rehearsals and performances, we see the life of a very talented, but troubled genius.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute BERNSTEIN!
    It has been said many times that music is the universal language.While the truth of this statement is self-evident, occasionally even universal languages require translators.For that, great men such as Leonard Bernstein have stepped to the fore to assist the rest of us in understanding what is perhaps man's single greatest art form.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "The Alleycats Steal The Show"
    Urgh as a whole is fairly good. Alot of good performances from bands like; X, Gang of Four, Pere Ubu, The Cramps, Devo, Gary Numan, and Au Pairs. However this movie could have been sooo much better. They left out alot, I mean alot of great bands that were around at that time. And they included alot of bands that were very insignifigant. However the performance from the Alleycats makes the whole movie very worth while. The first time I saw the Alleycats in this movie I had tears streaming down my face. It is so powerful. It's one of the greatest live performances I have ever seen. It's what music is all about. They give it all they got. Unfortunately there is only one Alleycats song in this movie. It's a revamped version of "Nothing Means Nothing". It still blows me away every time I see it. It's like they take all of their deepest emmotions and pour them on to the crowd of pogoing kids that get what they are doing. Powerful so powerful.

    I Found out why there's no Urgh! DVD yet...(here's why)
    5-0 out of 5 stars PLEASE Put This On DVD!
    This is the coolest concert video I've ever seen. I've had the VHS version for years, but am afraid to play it too often for fear of wearing out the tape. It's chock-full of live performances from numerous punk and new-wave bands. Most performances are awesome, with only a few stinkers. What great bands! The Police, Dead Kennedys, Oingo Boingo, XTC, Go-Go's, Wall Of Voodoo, Devo, Joan Jett, and much more. A virtual endless parade of wonderful late 70's and early 80's music. This is an extremely important historical document. For example, to my knowledge it is the only place you can see the Go-Go's original bass player on video. I don't understand how this amazing video has been allowed to sink into obscurity. Someone in the recording industry needs to get their act together and put this on DVD. I don't care if they charge $250.00 for the DVD, I would buy it! IT'S THAT GOOD!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting to note...
    It's symptomatic of middle-age, I suppose, to reflect warmly on "the good old days", and even though I never wanted to fall into that syndrome, seeing "Help" has done exactly that for me. I was a Freshman in college when the movie was released, and so it was a movie for the millions of Boomers like me, in that bizarre, wonderful time that was the mid-1960's in America.
    5-0 out of 5 stars YAY!! :D
    This was the best movie that the beatles did it was funny and had a bit more of a plot this time. 'in the weeks that followed five more attemts were made to steal the ring.' Quite frankly my favorite attemt was number four he,he. But in 'another girl' we can only wish that Paul would wear that tshirt more often. and my stepsister finally realized that there are more rasons to like the beatles than their music. That is before John turned into mountain man\amish terrorist anyway.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Please restore "Help!" for DVD
    Though not the landmark that "A Hard Day's Night" was, this film is still a lot of fun, and for current and future generations shows how the Beatles looked and behaved in 1965, in full color (in fact, the color cinematography is striking throughout--should have been nominated for an Oscar).

    Editorial Review

    The short life and passionate music of romantic composer Frédéric Chopin provide the foundations for this 1945 drama, which proved influential in its gaudy, undeniably watchable formula of historical exaggeration and shrewdly simplified motives for its principals.In an Oscar-nominated performance, Cornel Wilde presents the Polish native as a passionate nationalist driven by his love of his native country and his hatred of its czarist regime, a thematic focus that can be forgiven in light of the political backdrop at the time of the production.Already a prodigy in his native land, where he's mentored by a shamelessly scenery-chewing Paul Muni as Professor Elsner, Chopin flees to Paris where his flashing eyes, dark nimbus of curls, and florid technique earn him stardom, while his involvement with the writer George Sand (a beautiful Merle Oberon, even when draped in then-provocatively masculine garb) introduces a romantic crescendo.Still, the tortured pianist-composer pines for his homeland, frets about its political fate, and begins to wither under the rigors of his new career as ur-superstar; in a typically over-the-top but riveting image, we see drops of blood spatter across the keyboard as he thunders through a recital, gallantly ignoring his failing health to spread his music and, by extension, awareness of Poland's fate.Numerous subsequent musical dramas (including two more Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Several Moments to remember.
    This is the earliest movie rendering of the Chopin/Sand affair I have seen to date. However, in this, Sand is more of an impediment to what Chopin must do--raise funds for his Polish rebel friends.This is something that has been neglected to a degree, in the other two movies I have seen on this subject (Impromptu, Desire for Love). Both acknowledge his Polish-ness and one does even show his rushed departure from his beloved homeland.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A SONG THAT I'LL CERTAINLY ALWAYS REMEMBER
    A few days ago, thanks to Amazon and a kind gentleman named Ernest who had one to sell, I FINALLY became the proud owner of A Song to Remember on VHS - a little more than 56 years after I saw the actual movie. They say if something's good enough to want, it's good enough to wait for, and this is certainly true where this sublime movie and most treasured memory of my childhood is concerned.In 1946, at the age of 9, my well meaning parents (back home in Wales, U.K.) took me to see this movie, without telling me that their main reason was 'the hope that it would encourage me to put more effort in to my piano lessons'.To their dismay, they soon discovered that, in that respect, they had failed miserably because - after seeing this movie and being introduced to the life and beautiful music of Frederic Chopin, through the incredible combination of Cornel Wilde's good looks (and excellent acting) and the superb performance of the music itself by Jose Iturbi, I promptly came to the conclusion that if I couldn't play that well, then I didn't want to play at all. Not long afterwards, my long suffering piano teacher was relieved (in every sense of the word) of her duties.But from the moment I sat enraptured through that movie, I fell in love with Chopin and his music and made the vow that 'when I grow up, I'm going to go to Poland and listen to a Chopin recital in the country where it all began'.More than forty years later (and having moved to Canada in the meantime) I achieved that ambition and what a joy it was to hear this wonderful music played by a leading exponent of Chopin's music from the Warsaw Conservatory.My other ambition was to somehow 'acquire' this memorable movie for myself.But I found that to be easier said than done, as all my enquiries came up with an 'out of print' response. Then just over a week ago, I saw that Amazon did indeed have one for sale - 'used'. I knew it was a risk to fork out money for a product that I couldn't even be sure was in great condition.But I wanted this movie so much, that I 'boughtit' immediately, before anyone else could pounce on it.My movie arrived a few days later, just in time for it to be 'a special birthday gift to myself'.Today was my birthday and one of the biggest treats of my day was to curl up in comfort and watch A Song to Remember in my own home at long last.Oh what memories watching it brought back, and what joy is gave me to finally have this wonderful movie in my possession to play and watch for ever more. I am also happy to say that this 'used' tape turned out to be in superb condition, with its picture and sound as good as new.This is one happy movie owner and my thanks to Amazon and Ernest for finally making it possible for me to fulfil a lifelong dream. It means more to me than you would ever imagine!A Song to Remember made it a Birthday to Remember too!!

    Editorial Review

    The American Ballet Theater version of the Tchaikovsky classic, a 1977 studio rendition directed by Tony Charmoli, has become a holiday perennial on PBS stations and home video. It's a favorite of parents who want to give their kids the gift of culture--and with good reason.There's a loose fairy tale plot to keep dance neophytes interested, and Boris Aronson's eye-candy production design is a series of lavish dioramas. From an imperial-era Russian Christmas party out of Tolstoy, a young girl named Clara (Gelsey Kirkland) is whisked in dreams to an imaginary world populated by the animated creations of the wizard toy maker Drosselmeier (Alexander Minz), who prances on his stick-thin limbs like a Dickens illustration come to life. The main attraction is, of course, Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the greatest classical dancers of the century, at his absolute peak of athleticism and precision. An opening slow-motion montage diagrams his fabled smoothness of execution, elegant airborne trajectories that have a feather-light perfection.Music lovers who know only "The Nutcracker Suite" will relish the chance to hear this great score all the way through, conducted with lilt and vigor by Kenneth Schermerhorn.

    I was impressed that they actually performed this to be video taped and took advantage of the video options like zoom.No one jumps like Baryshnikov.It's magical.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nutcracker has a clear sexual theme to it
    Rss22 is apparently disturbed by the sexual theme present in this version of the Nutcracker. However, it is essential to the ballet. In short, the Nutcracker is about a young girl becoming a woman and the sexual conflicts involved. Her dream is clearly sexual. She fights off the mice who represent her "dirty" sexual impulses and lascivious temptations including that of being "conquered" by the Mouse King. Finally, with the arrival of the Nutcracker Prince and his help, she is able to sublimate these impulses into a mature love for a protector who marries her (the Nutcracker prince) and who makes an "honest woman" of her. Proper versions of the ballet always have the Christmas tree swell and rise to gargantuan size, like the big phallis it represents. Ballets that fail to do this indicate a lack of understanding of what the ballet is all about. However, children can enjoy it without necessarily having the sexual meanings made explicit to them. Just don't point them out. Simple. ... Read more

    The highly fictionalized fantasia on the life of the great Johann Strauss. This 1938 film is a sacher torte of pleasure for anyone who loves his music and, in the lead, Fernand Gravet does a commendable job acting-wise. The very attractive - albeit large-boned - Polish soprano Miliza Korjus sings with a truly brilliant voice & she became the object of intense jealousy from M-G-M's reigning diva, Jeanette MacDonald! Because it was decided that there wasn't room for two Prima Donnas at the studio, the firmly established MacDonald was kept on the payroll while the European Korjus virtually went into American obscurity. Backgrounds for the film were shot in Chino, California. It is rumoured that portions of this underrated gem was indeed directed by Josef Von Sternberg.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Hollywood operetta at its best
    Take the story of a man torn between two women, add the music of Johann Strauss and the scenery of 1840's Vienna and you have The Great Waltz, an irresistible cream puff of a movie.Miliza Korjus-rhymes with gorgeous and she is-portrays the fictional opera singer Carla Doner in a delicious performance that verges on May West camp, murmuring most of her lines through a perpetual full-toothed grin and waltzing herself giddy while singing absolutely impossible sounding obliggatoes to Strauss's walzes-never loosing a beat and never out of breath!Luise Rainer's innate sweetness and vulnerability are perfect for Poldi, Strauss's devoted wife.Watch her silent reaction when she realizes that the song she thought he wrote for her was actually intended for Madame Doner-incredible acting.On the other hand, Fernand Gravet, as Strauss, is unexceptional and a bit bland.Among the excellent supporting cast, Hugh Herbert as the befuddled music publisher and Curt Bois as the comic, but wise violinist are outstanding.The movie does require a temporary suspension of belief.It is full of improbabilities, including the all-female orchestra that performs Tales of the Vienna Woods in a biergarten--wearing evening gowns, Madam Doner's apparent ability to glance at a piece of music once and perform it word and note perfect (the citizens of Vienna take this one step further by singing along even though the waltzes in question have yet to be published!), and the most peculiar version of Die Fledermaus ever performed. If you are looking for historical accuracy or musical purity, this is not your movie, but if you want a delightful Hollywood operetta, you can't do much better than The Great Waltz. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars mad season...
    Just because you don't buy VHS anymore and don't own a VCR doesn't mean no one else does either. Mad Season is an incredibly underrated band, true talent ignored by those with the power to promote the band and build its fanbase because in today's world true talent does not amount to much to most people if there is no money to be made off of it. If you want to know why this hasn't been released on DVD yet, you might want to ask the head of Sony/Columbia why money is king and why they so heavily promote other crap that no one with any taste is interested in for the purpose of making money and getting rich, rather than doing their jobs and focusing on the real talent of the music industry. You might want to ask them why they have become such a gigantic rubber stamp of approval for people such as any talentless jackass who decides to go sing on american idol and goes on to sell tens of millions of records for no good reason. Ask them they promote some of the worst music ever recorded and completely ignore the little bit of talent that still remains on their label. Then and only then will you know why talented bands such as Mad Season have been ignored and placed on the back burner for so long.

    Editorial Review

    Christmas! The mere word inspires shrieks and wiggles in the 1- to 6-year-old crowd. Treat the kiddies to a tuneful outlet for their holiday excitement with this festive, 45-minute video from Australia's award-winning children's group, the Wiggles. Main vocalist Greg Page (in yellow) teams up with cohorts Murray Cook (guitar), Anthony Field (guitar and trumpet), and Jeff Fatt (accordion and keyboard) to deliver over a dozen delightful Christmas favorites--some old, many new, and almost all with a boppin' beat. What makes this holiday sing-along superior to other, similar tapes is the genuine joy the performers emit while they dance, play, and smile throughout each one- to two-minute tune. Simple yet eye-catching sets for songs including "Felice Navidad" and "Jingle Bells" never upstage the foursome and their boyish glee. Many performances include equally wiggly children, dressed as elves or reindeer, who appear every bit as genuine as Greg, Murray, Anthony, and Jeff. In a favorite segment, Anthony introduces and chats with some of the kids before they perform a musical nativity play. The final few minutes features a live performance of the "Wiggly Christmas Medley" from Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This DVD Saved Our Christmas!
    Our daughter (13 months) loves this DVD to the point of obsession. Don't think about this as education - this is pure escape fantasy. Nothing else - not Baby Einstein, not Barney - keeps her rapt attention like this DVD. Pop this in when you need a break or are cleaning up after a day of playtime. You won't be disappointed.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Wiggles DVD!

    Editorial Review

    Simon Kieth's popular comic book was adapted for television in this multipart animated series first broadcast on MTV. A little confusing, the series--which concerns a kind of hulking superhero and his attachment to a female therapist and her teenage client--is actually mesmerizing and surprisingly touching. The writing is unusually sophisticated, and Kieth's ability to create complex female characters and provide their incisive dialogue should be the envy of any male scribe. Parallel action set in a so-called outback--an escape from reality--is wild and evocative of childhood fantasies. This is a strangely beautiful show all around. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Is this all of "The Maxx" ?
    I recently found my VHS tape of this series & wondered if there was a DVD version available, no such luck! This was perhaps the best thing to come from MTV in the 90's, only to disappear into obscurity.
    5-0 out of 5 stars You can see it unedited
    This is not a review per se (the series is great) but I wanted to let those interested know that all the episodes- unedited- can be seen at youtube.com. Until the series is released unabridged on DVD , which seems unlikely, that's the only way I know of to see it in its original form.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I hope The Maxx gets released on DVD.
    I don't have this retail version of the show, but I do have the original episodes that I recorded from MTV Oddities in 1995.I think the show and the original comic book are excellent!I pulled them out and watched them for the first time in over 5 years.I wish there was some way to get this released on DVD. ...

    The true meaning of Christmas is not found in packages or a visit from Santa, but in friendship and genuine concern for others.In "A Very Minty Christmas," Minty accidentally breaks the glowing "here comes Christmas candy cane" that traditionally leads Santa through the clouds to Ponyville.Horrified that she has ruined Christmas for the entire village, Minty embarks on a perilous journey to the North Pole.Along the way, she learns the value of true friendship and discovers that simply giving of oneself can ensure a great Christmas for everyone.In "Dancing in the Clouds," Twinkle Twirl and her friend Sky Wishes strive to create an extra special dance for the friendship ball.Thanks to a little help from Star Catcher, the two friends harness the power of friendship to create a beautiful dance and a very special memory.

    We had originally taped "A Very Minty Christmas" for my daughter and she had watched it many times until it accidentally got erased so we bought the DVD. She loves the ponies and she loves this movie whether it's the Christmas season or not.

    Editorial Review

    The three-day Woodstock music festival in 1969 was the pivotal event of the 1960s peace movement, and this landmark concert film is the definitive record of that milestone of rock & roll history.It's more than a chronicle of the hippie movement, however; this is a film of genuine historical and social importance, capturing the spirit of America in transition, when the Vietnam War was at its peak and antiwar protest was fully expressed through the liberating music of the time. With a brilliant crew at his disposal (including a young editor named Martin Scorsese), director Michael Wadleigh worked with over 300 hours of footage to create his original 225-minute director's cut, which was cut by 40 minutes for the film's release in 1970. Eight previously edited segments were restored in 1994, and the original director's cut of Woodstock is now the version most commonly available on videotape and DVD. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest concert film ever
    The Summer of 1969 seems a thousand years ago.I was eighteen years old, had just graduated from high school, was on vacation in Hawaii with my family, and terrified of the draft because the Vietnam War was at its height.
    5-0 out of 5 stars woodstock - 3 days of peace & music (the director's cut)
    Excellent - arrived on time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
    When reviews of music DVD's are all over the board regarding sound quality only one fair conclusion is possible: The problem is the end user,not the product. I was stunned by how good this DVD sounded. Consider the conditions under which Woodstock was recorded and the quality and calibration of your home system before jumping to negative conclusions about this "transfer". That the VHS version sounds better than the Dolby 5.1 mix on DVD is simply not possible. You can quibble about several aspects of this movie but sound quality should not be one of them. ...

    Dora's too smart a cookie to leave Santa standard-issue snacks for Christmas. But when he slips through the chimney without spotting his gift, it's up to her and buddies Backpack, Boots, and the trusty Map to battle their way through snow-capped mountains and an icy river to ring his North Pole bell. Even at Christmastime, TV's most intrepid cartoon Latina is no slouch--she takes 2- to 6-year-olds to task on shape identification, Spanish vocabulary, and more during Project Present Drop . With her encouragement, Swiper the Fox surrenders Santa's gift as quickly as he five-fingers it, and elves come caroling when the merry mission's complete. Dora's gift to her devoted play-along-at-home pals is a second episode. In "Rapido, Tico!"the gang tackles land, lake, sky, and snow to reclaim Boots's toy fire truck. Read more

    My kids have this video and they love it.Especially my daughter.My son still hides away in his bedroom to watch it.Everyone is right about it being one little Christmas episode but it's cute.The only thing I didn't care much for was how Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys portrayed Santa Claus.He used the stereotypical "mexican" slang accent and as the mother of half hispanic children, I found it almost offensive.Even my son pointed out that Mexicans don't talk like that.

    Our 2 year old absolutely adores Dora.This Christmas DVD is her favorite and she watches it over and over again all year round.We love the fact that Dora is a positive cartoon female role model for our daughter.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Needs More Christmas Episodes
    Since this DVD shows a Christnas themed picture on the cover it would have been great to have 4 Christmas themed episodes.All the episodes on this DVD(including the one Christmas episode) have been shown on the Dora TV series.We all know that Dora has a baby brother and sister but since they were first introduced this spring they have only been in 3-4 episodes.The Dora series needs to have some new life breathed into it.Even my 27 month granddaughter is beginning to tire of the same episodes being shown constantly. ...

    I can't believe BLT productions had anything to do with this film which is unwatchably bad. Now I see why Roy Disney made a website called Save Disney. Oddly enough, Disney did a great job on a lesser-known L'Engle book, Ring of Endless Light, which will hopefully make it out on DVD.
