5-0 out of 5 stars A Year After "Rocky" - and almost as good
"One on One" opened in the summer of 1977 and was basically a nice follow up to "Rocky" the year before.An underdog, in this case, a small standout high school basketball player, enters the big time world of college basketball and is ill equipped to deal with the pressures - and the assortment of difficult characters he encounters (an underage and older woman seductress; a coach from hell; a smug intellectual, etc.). Robby Benson was an important film star for several years and made several high quality films.This film, which he co-wrote, is probably his best (with "The Chosen," another little scene film, a very close second). His characters were decent, warm, smarter than they seemed, and brave.The love story with Annette O'Toole, who plays his college tutor, is believably drawn, and is the spine of the story of a young man's growth toward manhood. There is also plenty of humor in the story - and the basketball scenes, whether in practice or the actual games, have the feel of real college basketball, even today.THIS FILM NEEDS TO BE ON DVD!It's the 30th anniversary, so come on!On ESPN classic, they showed this film with some terrific commentary by Robby Benson and others in the cast, reflecting back on the experience of making the film.This should definitely be included in the DVD version.It was just excellent - and brought back all the feelings I had when I first saw the film.I was in high school too.It was the late 1970's and we were hungry for heroes. And life was definitely simpler (though, of course, it didn't seem so at the time).This is a smart, funny, inspiring film - and it deserves a gold star DVD treatment - with the terrific Seals and Crofts songs included as a CD bonus."My Fair Share," the title song is terrific.A five-star treat, by any standards!

5-0 out of 5 stars DVD now, please!
This is a great movie...it has its campy 70's moments, but when you compare it to the other movies made during that time, it far exceeds many of them.
5-0 out of 5 stars Funny, touching, romantic tale
This is a film I first saw the year it was released and almost 30 years later I am still quoting lines from it and humming the theme song.PLEASE release a DVD version of this marvelous film for a new generation to experience and us "older" viewers (mid 40's)to be reunited with old friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nearly 40 years old, now, the film still works...
You can even get a flash of Olivia Hussey's breast in the bedroom scene if you look closely, and she was only 15 at the time of filming, so this version of the ancient play was controversial in its day. It has passion, style, great supporting actors, and is true to its source as well. While the more recent version with Leonardo DiCaprio has some good moments, too, this one is the high water mark of "Romeo and Juliet" on film. I will never forget seeing this at the base theater at Fort Knox, Kentucky, after spending a month in Vietnam, facing almost another year in the Army. When the movie ended, one soldier in front of me said to his buddy, "They think they've got troubles? Try being in the damn Army!"Well, R and J did have life-ending troubles, but their falling in love, as instant as it was, achieves believability and really tugs at the hearts of the audience. This movie was a fine accomplishment, and its soundtrack album was also a big seller on LP in the late '60's. That Shakespeare fellow did his writin' before movies were invented, I think, yet his stuff adapts really well to the screen. For my taste, a Shakespeare movie almost always beats seeing his plays on stage.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Pinnacle Film Captures the Pure Essence of the Play
There have been many screen adaptations of Romeo and Juliet over the years.Some of them played by some of Hollywood's top actors and actresses.There was even the Romeo and Juliet last done by Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes, which to my mind is simply Romeo and Juliet on steroids.
4-0 out of 5 stars Brings back my teen years in the theater.
First saw this movie as a 14 or 15 year-old teen.Loved the film!It is one of those seminal movie moments of my youth.I think it is the definitive film version of 'Romeo and Juliet.'Never saw DiCaprio's version and have no real desire to.The DVD was of excellent quality, considering the original film was shot in 1968. My teen daughter watched it with me, and did have some trouble following the Shakespearean dialog, but she could still follow the storyline. (I think we had more exposure to the classics in the Baby Boomer Gen than do kids today.) Nonetheless, we both enjoyed the experience and the DVD was delivered in Amazon's usual timely manner. The angry Prince's final words to the feuding families, "All are punish-ed. ALL ARE PUNISH-ED!" stands as an electric moment in the film.The performances by all are terrific.Enjoy! ... Read more

Editorial Review

An entire generation of baby boomers grew up with this stagy but magical production, which originated on Broadway but was broadcast several times on TV. They may not know Mary Martin or Cyril Ritchard--two staples of the commercial theater in their time--for any other reason, but they'll always be able to name them as Peter Pan and Captain Hook. The story of the boy who wouldn't grow up includes a classic score with songs that can bring a tear of nostalgia to the eye of the middle-aged--like "I Won't Grow Up," "I've Gotta Grow," and "Neverland." The flying, the goofy comedy--it's all there in this video version of the classic TV broadcast. It's hard to know what sophisticated modern youngsters would make of it, but their parents will gladly sit and watch with them. Read more

The original release of this DVD from goodtimes is in a cardboard snapcase.Many sellers sell copies in a plastic case - this is a cheap copy and is worthless.Make sure it's in a cardboard snap-case before paying!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Memories I passed to my kids and now grandchildren...
I saw this version on TV when I was 7 years old and every year after that! My children (ages 32-17) all know this version and know ALL of the songs by heart (as well most of the dialoge)! We watch it once a year as a family and now with our grandkids, sing and laugh the whole way through!! It's the best! I hope they digitally master this for the generations to come! It may seem corney to some, but it's a classic! We love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Mary Martin's Peter Pan
Musical comedy star Mary Martin may have not been as well-known to many of us if she hadn't appeared in a television version of the famous "Peter Pan" story on March 7, 1955.After achieving great success on Broadway, and limited success in Hollywood (in generally disappointing film roles), Martin joined Australian actor Cyril Ritchard in an outstanding adaptation of Sir James Barrie's classic tale of boys who would not grow up.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Was that the Boogeyman?" "As a Matter of Fact it Was..."
I remember as fifteen year old teenager, sneaking into my local theatre for a showing of John Carpenter's now classic, horror film, "Halloween". I'll never forget, that long walk home afterwords, looking over my shoulder with a shudder, imagining 'the Shape'/Michael Myers suddenly appearing behind the bare trees. Now over twenty-five years later with 'All Hollow's Eve' fast approaching, I thought I'd buy this movieand see if it still retains it power to scare or if merely came off a a corny/campy 'genre' film of my youth. Well, I have got to tell you, after a late night viewing, that this movie retains it's status as a horror classic and it's still scary as anything! What makes this movie so good ? For one, director/writer, John Carpenter sets this movie in a normal any-town, suburbia. We can see ourselves in this town of picket fences and tree line streets with middle income suburban family houses. Two, the main characters are pretty well written. The three teenage girls are not just faceless victims. Carpenter spends the first half of the film introducing us to these characters and letting us get to know them. They are like any other average teenage girls. They joke around, boast, laugh, fight and gossip with each other. The acting is a step above most horror films. Jamie Lee Curtis gives an especially effective lead performance in her film debut. Third, mood seems to be everything in this film. The majority of the time is spent at night. Cinematographer/Director of Photography, Dean Cundey bathes the film in the pitch blackness of night and highlights it with errie, autumn colors. The few day scenes are almost grimey. Daylight is just a prelude (or set-up) for what is to come. Cundey's use of light in the darkness, highlights the chilling details within the scenes (just look at the scene of Jamie Lee Curtis standing next to an open, pitch-black closet, when all of a sudden Michael's masked face suddenly, ghostly appears out of nowhere). Mood is also set with Carpenter's now classic, electronic, musical score. If there is one thing that gives me goose bumps about this film is that persistant theme music! Finally, this is a film, where less is more. We actually see and know very little about the killer. He is presented as an almost supenatural force of nature. Aside from the opening backflash scene and an over the top desription from Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence), we know very little about him or his motivations. The viewer only briefly sees parts of his masked face in the darkness. We see his hulking form in blurry, long shots. But not until the end, do we actually get a good look at him. He is the unknown and we are all frightened by the unknown. This is just a great, classic horror film! After all these years it still retains it's power to just scare! Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars Question not a comment
Does this 25th anniversary edition have the scene when P.J. Soles' character Lynda comes over to Laurie's house to borrow the blouse?

1-0 out of 5 stars Boo!
It wasn't a bad movie except for all the killing. How about a nice movie where people just get along? Instead, this crazy michael myers guy runs around killing all the teenie weeners and ruins halloween for everyone. This character totally ruined the movie. Pleasent Donald demonstrated some good acting but I had a hard time telling him apart from that buttugly Jamie Lee Curtis. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorite Disney Characters
This movie was my all-time favorite when I was little. And Robin Hood was definitely my all-time favorite Disney character. I remember how I'd sit at the kitchen table and draw countless pictures of Robin Hood, and how I'd sit in front of our family computer and write stories involving Robin Hood.

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost as wonderful as the first!
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

4-0 out of 5 stars Once Upon a Time.
Even though most high schools in the country have very little resemblance to the high school in TEACHERS, there is a savage inequality that exists in how our schools in the United States are funded.This realization didn't take place until the early 1980s and TEACHERS was made and released just as the debate over unequal education was starting to rage.
4-0 out of 5 stars Where is the DVD?!?!?!?!?!?!
They do not even show this movie on cable...I have been waiting patiently for this to come out. Especially since I and pretty my whole graduation class (Franklin Heights High School) is in this movie. The movie was filmed at the old Central High School in Columbus, Ohio. A casting call went out to all seniors, 17 years and older in the early fall of 1983. We went there four hours a day, three days a week, for about six weeks, it was awesome.
4-0 out of 5 stars It's closer to being a good film than a bad one . . .
Most of the other comments, pro and con, have their points.I agree with many of them, pro and con; it's a matter of degree in most cases.And that in turn is a matter of taste or opinion; "beauty in the eye of the beholder" and so on.

When you are in the mood for a pleasant little romance, this should fit the bill. Amy Irving and Richard Dreyfuss are young pianists vying for the same prize. Surprise, surprise, they fall in love. We then must wait, with (nearly) breathless anticipation, to see if she will throw the contest to ensure his love. It is all a bit starry-eyed, but not overly gooey. The concert footage is handled with class, and there are some fine supporting performances from Sam Wanamaker and Lee Remick. It is also a lot of fun to see Dreyfuss and Irving as such fresh-faced innocents. Read more

Editorial Review

Director Francis Coppola's adaptation of the popular S.E. Hinton novel about the price of rebellious youth is notable chiefly for the stunning cast of young actors who went on to rich and varied careers. In supporting roles, the film features the likes of Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Tom Waits, among others. The story centers on two rival gangs in the early 1960s Midwest, and the violent turf wars that escalate and tragically claim young lives. C. Thomas Howell plays the central character who yearns to prove himself and be accepted by his older brothers' gang, while at the same time finding his first love and dreaming of a life beyond his dead end existence. Geared toward the teenage crowd, the film nonetheless features some fine direction from Coppola in a story that evokes memories of the classic coming-of-age films of the 1950s. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great New Soundtrack...
The musical score in the original version underlined the melodrama in an almost 1950's way.The new version is not only more true to S.E. Hinton's novel but the soundtrack is much more appropos, in time with the early/mid 1960's backdrop of the story.You can't get more timeless than bluesy surf garage rock mixed with Sun era/early RCA Elvis. The new sounds juxtaposed against the original 'Stay Gold' theme provide a relief which further accentuates the beauty of the original composition.

5-0 out of 5 stars well worth the wait...
This brand-new 50th Anniversary edition of THE KING AND I is a must for all fans of the timeless Rodgers and Hammerstein masterpiece.Widowed English schoolteacher Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr) travels to Siam after she is offered a position to tutor the children of the King (Yul Brynner).Once in Siam, Anna and the King clash on matters of politics, ethics and the heart...two very different individuals who manage to still find the very best in each other.This magical movie has never looked or sounded better, in a new DVD remaster.Audio commentary for the film is provided by Michael Portantiere and Richard Barrios.
5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful if nothing else
If you've never seen this film adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's broadway hit 'The King & I'...I suggest you do.While it's far from perfect, and it's not even the best musical to grace the big screen, 'The King & I' packs a whallop of a punch and sports some great acting and beautiful sets that will do nothing short of take your breath away.The plot is simple.A widow and her son move to Siam to help teach the Kings children and while there they all take turns learning from one another.The woman, Anna (Deborah Kerr) is a very independant mother who butts heads with the very independant King (Yul Brynner).As she demands the house he promised her as well as continues to teach and fall in love with the children on Siam, Anna slowly begins to understand the way of life she at first refused to understand.The film comes down to dramatic conclusion that tests their friendship and at the same time affirms their silent love for one another.The film soars with it's beautiful story of two unlikly friends who slowly, and subtly fall in love, and soars even higher when you get a glimpse of the fantastic stage sets (which are even richer on the stage which I just had the privilage of seeing last night with Lou Diamond Phillips who was outstanding!).The singing is decent, Kerr proving she has the best chops, but it's the story that steals the show.Yes this is a musical, but strip that away and you still have an engrossing love story that is above average.I'd recommend this to anyone, a great family film that everyone will enjoy.The 'Uncle Toms Cabin' presentation done in Siamese style is the most impressive part of the film and the stage performance and is sure to make this movie a memerable experience.

4-0 out of 5 stars Commonly confused with earlier Disney release "Scary Tales"
Donald's Scary Tales does not contain "Skeleton Dance." It is commonly confused with a video released by Disney in the early 1980's known as Scary Tales. Scary Tales has a run time of 43 minutes and does contain "Skeleton Dance." Donald's Scary Tales has a run time of 22 minutes and has three shorts on it: "Donald Duck and the Gorilla", "Duck Pimples", and "Donald's Lucky Day." I hope this helps any fellow collectors of vintage animation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just about perfect in all respects...
Race and crime are the topics of this adaptation of Harper Lee's mega-selling novel. Set in the pre-World War II south, filmed in black and white, starring two child actors who were totally unknown and the wonderful Gregory Peck, the movie is really a tale of a single dad small-town lawyer raising a boy and a girl to do the right things and think the right thoughts. Famous for many things, the movie features a child character based on Truman Capote, and a mysterious neighbor played by Robert Duvall in his film debut. The music and cinematography are both superb. Everyone over the age of 12 should see this film at least once.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Cinematic Masterwork About Human Fallibility in a World of Wearying Intolerance
Having just read Charles Shields' biography of Harper Lee, "Mockingbird", and re-read her classic (and only) novel for at least the third time, I was able recently to watch Robert Mulligan's 1962 classic film adaptation with fresh eyes, and the 2005 Legacy Series Edition DVD fortunately contains a pristine print transfer and a bundle of extras that make repeated viewings more than worthwhile. Rarely has a film so accurately captured the emotional consequences of human fallibility steadfastly within the grip of racial intolerance. Set in the Deep South of Lee's childhood in the fictional town of Maycomb in 1932, the story, adapted by writer Horton Foote, focuses on six-year old Scout, the tomboy, motherless daughter of lawyer Atticus Finch.
5-0 out of 5 stars Review of DVD To Kill a Mockingbird
The Legacy Series Edition of To Kill a Mockingbird is an excellent DVD set.In addition to the classic movie (which we never tire of), the special features are very interesting, including interviews with "Scout" (Mary Badham), and "Atticus Finch".It is easy to understand why Gregory Peck is so revered and respected as an actor.

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).

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have
Charlie Brown is classic.You'll love his simple style and humor and the kids will too.It reminds me of simpler times in life without all the clutter and business of today.There's no fighting, special powers, x-ray vision, etc.Just Charlie Brown and the gang learning about life and teaching important lessons along the way.
5-0 out of 5 stars Charlie's Holidays
These are the tv shows you remember.Not the bad - strike that - terrible holiday shows that the tv executives are giving us.The original is the best.

Editorial Review

There are two types of Schoolhouse Rock fans. Type A: those who--inspired in the '70s and '80s by "Conjunction Junction" and "Interjections!"--went on to become grammar gurus, copyeditors, and computational linguists. And type B: those who--less inspired by grammar than by catchy refrains--can still sing lines that today sound less than P.C.: Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars School House Rocks!
At my school we perform plays and School House Rock was one of them. This year was the year we performed it and it was a success. The play even helped me. Cause some of the things they said i didnt know. This Review will help you with choosing the best school related movie to help your child with school.
5-0 out of 5 stars Now all I need is a video of "Time for Timer!"
When my son was born, and only my singing seemed to comfort him, (my singing had never comforted anyone before...) I found myself singing "The Preamble" and "Conjunction Junction." I bought all four Schoolhouse Rock videos shortly afterwards.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great for ALL AGES!
As a kid, I loved the Schoolhouse Rock series and still remember the Grammar Rock songs.As a mom, I came across Schoolhouse Rock again by chance and thought I'd get the tapes for my kids who are now 2 and (nearly) 5 to enjoy when they're older.Amazingly, not only my Kindergartener but also my 2 year old prefer this tape to just about anything else right now - including the Wiggles and Blues Clues!I thought I'd bought these for the future, but they absolutely love the music and the animation and my 2-year old goes around singing snatches of "Interjections" and "Lolly Lolly Lolly get your Adverbs Here".As for my Kindergarten-age son, he has grown to enjoy it on a whole new level now that he is reading and beginning to learn grammar and punctuation concepts.Parents, it's never too soon to invest in this gem!I'd much rather have them watching this than the Rugrats or something... ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Childen's Series with 'Peanuts' Characters Created by Minnesotan Charles Schulz
One of 13 kids videos that teach kids
4-0 out of 5 stars Great cartoon! (And educational, too.)
This Is America, Charlie Brown cartoons were very innovative specials that featured the Peanuts characters in important moments in history, and gave kids (as well as parents) a fun insight on how certain histicorial characters (and their influences) came to be. This episode is about the how the Constitution was created, as well as how the legislative, executive and judicial branches affected the delegates. The special mainly revolved around Linus and Peppermint Patty, but the other usual characters were there as well (Schroeder was only in one scene, but he didn't have any line).5-0 out of 5 stars It was good.
My 4 year old and my 6 year old enjoy this tape very much.They have learned much about the Transcontinental Railroad.This video is packed with a lot of facts, but done in a way that the children enjoy watching.I am well pleased that it is a part of our collection. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great film
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 CLASSIC !
A must see classic film.

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".

Editorial Review

Jody is the kind of guy that every 1970s teen looked up to. He's inhis early 20s, has a cool car, splendid '70s hair, leather jacket, playsguitar and (naturally) snags all the girls. His little brother, Mike, inparticular, admires him and emulates him at every turn. Things start to goastray, however, when the two brothers and their friend Reggie attend afuneral for a friend. Mike notices a tall man working at the funeral home; inthe course of his snooping, he sees the tall man put a loaded coffin into theback of a hearse as easily as if it was a shoebox. Jody doesn't believe hislittle brother's stories, though, until he brings home the tall man's severedfinger, still wriggling in what appears to be French's mustard. From there,the film picks up a terrific momentum that doesn't let up until thesequel-ripe twist ending.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a horror classic
I think that Phantasm was a big surprise hit back in '79 for different reasons than why it has endured as a cult movie to this day.
5-0 out of 5 stars TALL MAN CLEANIN' HOUSE!!!!!
Classic, 'nuff said (Thanks, Stan Lee)!
5-0 out of 5 stars DRIPS WITH SURREALISM AND ATMOSPHERE
Phasntasm, a little-known (outside of fans) horror fasntasy from 1979 is, simply stated, one of the most effective, atmospheric and genuinely scary movies to come out in a long long time.Even after 27 years, it still holds up as a truly unsettling and thoughtful horror movie and, believe me, it WILL scare the bejesus out of you.The thing I remember most about Phantasm was the normal, suburban culdesac surroundings where the film takes place.I swear, it will remind you of the neighborhood you grew up in.If you thought Spielberg's Americana neighborhoods seem real, wait til you check out the settings here.The fact that the 2 boys live alone in this big Brady Bunch-type house makes the whole thing kind of dreamlike.(Their parents died recently with little explanation). The acting is spot-on.The guy that plays the little brother is completely realistic.You will swear you know this kid!Likewise his cool brother and Reggie the ice cream man.These 3 genuinely seem like they have been friends for years. The acting seems very spontaneous and natural.You totally buy into these characters.
