DVD Pick: "Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit"

The voices of Helena Bonham Carter and Ralph Fiennes are among those heard in "Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" (2005), a film which has been nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Animated Feature category. The movie is suitable for children, but I expect most adults will find it delightful as well. When I watched it on DVD without any kids present, it gave me a few big laughs and a lot of chuckles, and there was a grin on my face almost all the way through.

DVD Pick: "Vera Drake"

Vera Drake is a powerful British drama that was nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. As far as I am concerned, the movie was one of 2004's best.

DVD Pick: "Vanya on 42nd Street"

Vanya on 42nd Street is a richly textured, beautifully acted study of human nature and subtle, complex family dynamics. Read Ivana Redwine's review of this fascinating movie on DVD.

DVD Pick: "Ugetsu"

Read a review of Ugetsu on DVD.

DVD Pick: "The Aviator"

Directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, The Aviator was nominated for eleven Academy Awards and won five. I think this movie was one of 2004's very best. I found it extremely entertaining, both in the theater and at home. On DVD, The Aviator comes as a two-disc set containing a rich assortment of extras. Read a review of The Aviator on DVD.

DVD Pick: "Saraband"

Ingmar Bergman proclaimed that "Fanny & Alexander" (1984) would be the last film he ever directed, but years later he changed his mind. The result was "Saraband" (2003), a movie made for Swedish television that I consider to be outstanding. Read a review of "Saraband" on DVD.

DVD Pick: Pride & Prejudice

I think Pride & Prejudice (2005) is quite deserving of its four Academy Award nominations: Best Actress (Keira Knightley), Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score. I was thoroughly entertained by this delightful movie, which is an adaptation of Jane Austen's classic 1813 novel. I consider Keira Knightley's performance in the role of Elizabeth Bennet brilliant, and Pride & Prejudice is strong in every facet of filmmaking. Read a review of Pride & Prejudice on DVD.

DVD Pick: "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"

Read a review of the movie and the special features on The Lord of the Rings DVD set.

DVD Pick: "The Philadelphia Story"

There are certain films I like to renew my acquaintance with every few years, and one of these is "The Philadelphia Story" (1940), which stars Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart. This is a witty, sophisticated movie that, in addition to dazzling star power, features elegant direction by George Cukor and a brilliant, non-formulaic screenplay.

DVD Pick: "The Phantom of the Opera"

It was quite a few years ago that I saw Andrew Lloyd Webber's blockbuster stage musical The Phantom of the Opera at the Los Angeles Music Center, and I remember having a good time. When the film version finally came out in 2004, roughly two-thirds of the reviews were negative, and I never got around to seeing it on the big screen. But now Phantom has been released on DVD, and although it was with trepidation that I sat down to watch it, I have to say I ended up thoroughly enjoying myself.

DVD Pick: 'Nosferatu'
