DVD Profile: Memoirs of a Geisha
Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) is a gorgeous-looking, Hollywoodized period piece that was nominated for six Academy Awards and won three: Cinematography, Art Direction and Costume Design. It features high production values and three beautiful Asian actresses (Ziyi Zhang, Michelle Yeoh, Gong Li) portraying geishas.

6 Things You Should Know About Renting From...

The company has no brick-and-mortar stores, and instead interfaces with its customers via the Internet and the United States Postal Service.

Best Quotes from 'The Notebook'
If you are looking for quotes from The Notebook, well, you are are looking in the right place. We got all Noah and Allie your heart can handle.
Crash DVD
Crash won the Academy Award for Best Picture, and I recommend it because it intelligently takes on the all-important topic of racial prejudice in America. Also, I found the acting exceptionally good, and I admired director Paul Haggis's skillful handling of the large cast. However, it seems to me the film emphasizes theme at the expense of character development and plot plausibility. The result is a bit too preachy and contrived for my taste.
DVD Pick: Black Snake Moan
Starring Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci, Black Snake Moan was written and directed by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow). Black Snake Moan is a blues film that takes its title from a traditional song by Blind Lemon Jefferson. At the movie's emotional high point, Jackson performs that song during a thunderstorm.
Louis Leterrier Q&A

What You Should Know Before Renting From...
The core of Blockbuster's business is operating a chain of several thousand brick-and-mortar stores that rent DVDs, Blu-ray discs and video games. But the company also offers several options for renting movies and television programming which involve the Internet, and that will be the focus here.
"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.

Netflix vs. Blockbuster
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.

Top Comedy Movies
In addition to making us laugh, comedy movies make us think about our lives and the world around us in new ways. My choices of films here are an eclectic mix ranging over a variety of comedy sub-genres, including parody, screwball, and dark comedy. This is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites, and it doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on comedy movies. For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies
Top Action Movies
Movies can show fierce battles, high-speed chases, and horrific explosions that most of us will never experience in real life, and I think such sequences properly used make films far more emotionally engaging. Here I've selected movies containing action that is well-integrated into the story. This is my personal, idiosyncratic list of favorites, and it doesn't necessarily reflect the popular wisdom on action movies. For the sake of focus, I've limited my choices to English-language talkies.

I thought that A Beautiful Mind played much better on DVD than it did when I saw the movie during its theatrical release. I found A Beautiful Mind to be more of a fable than a character study, although Russell Crowe's performance adds dimension to a character who is scripted as more mythic than real. Read my review of A Beautiful Mind on DVD.
DVD Pick: Bukowski: Born Into This
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.
