6 Things You Should Know About Renting From...
Netflix provides a movie and television programming rental service at flat monthly fees. The company has no brick-and-mortar stores, and instead interfaces with its customers via the Internet and the United States Postal Service. A large number of titles are available on DVDs and Blu-ray discs that will be delivered to the subscriber by mail. In addition, a much smaller number of titles can be streamed to the subscriber over the Internet.
How to Rent and Watch Movies from Amazon on...
Amazon is America's largest online retailer. The company's primary business is selling a wide variety of goods — especially books, DVDs and music CDs — that are ordered on their Website and shipped by mail or package delivery services. But they also offer some products that they deliver digitally to customers who have a broadband Internet connection.
"THX 1138" DVD
Before George Lucas became famous, he co-wrote and directed an excellent movie titled THX 1138starring Robert Duvall. Now a restored director’s cut of that film is being released as a superb two-disc DVD set loaded with worthwhile bonus materials. A single-disc version is also available, but missing most of the extras. With either DVD version you'll get a first-rate movie and an excellent commentary track, but I recommend the two-disc version because of its terrific bonus materials.

At its core, Netflix's business consists primarily of interfacing with subscribers via the Internet and sending them DVDs via US mail. Its only major competition for this business comes from the mostly similar online rental service run by Blockbuster.

I only knew a little about Los Angeles poet and novelist Charles Bukowski (1920-1994) before seeing the fascinating film Bukowski: Born Into This (2003) on DVD. Having heard so much about his drinking and fighting, I was surprised that in the documentary he comes off as likable. About 45 books of Bukowski's writings were published in his lifetime. He wrote six novels, two of the best-known being Post Office (1971) and Ham on Rye (1982). He also authored many poems and short stories.

I see the movie as more of a comedy with musical numbers than as a musical. Read a full-length review of Chicago on DVD.

DVD Pick: "The Notebook"
I would describe the movie The Notebook as an unabashedly romantic tale about love, memories, and death. It's a weepy, but I believe it's one that men can connect with. It's based on a novel by a man, the screenplay was written by a man, and the director is a man. The story chronicles one otherwise-quite-ordinary man's uncompromising love.
Before You Buy Blu-ray Discs
You love to watch movies and TV series on Blu-ray disc and DVD. However, the number of titles out on Blu-ray disc is limited. Also, in order to see the difference between Blu-ray and DVD, you must have a Blu-ray player that can play the discs along with an HDTV that has a large enough screen size and resolution. Be advised that not all Blu-ray players will play all Blu-ray discs. So make sure your Blu-ray player has the necessary firmware updates, or you'll risk experiencing playback problems.
DVD Pick: Thirteen
What I like best about Thirteen is that its so different from Hollywood films. It's unsparingly depressing, and it provides no feeling of closure or satisfaction. I think all those are positive attributes. But on the negative side, I found the movie to be almost painfully prosaic—the filmmakers seem more interested in social commentary than storytelling.

Brotherhood of the Wolf | DVD Movie Review -...
What I like best about Brotherhood of the Wolves is how it refuses to be confined to a single genre, and you never know quite what to expect next.

The French New Wave was a movement led by a group of young filmmakers that included Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, Alain Resnais, Claude Chabrol, Eric Rohmer and Jacques Rivette.
