Pearl Harbor DVD Review

"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.

The Blues Brothers is a 1980 comedy starring John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd that has become part of American pop culture consciousness. For me, it's the music that gives the movie its exuberance. The Blues Brothers Band plays numbers that are enjoyable enough, but the best are performed by guest artists Cab Calloway, James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and John Lee Hooker.

I laughed a lot while watching Chicago, and it contains about 15 song-and-dance numbers.

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.

Sunrise Movie DVD Review
F.W. Murnau's classic Hollywood silent movie Sunrise is on many lists of 100 greatest films, but it has been rather difficult to see for many years. At last Fox has released this great movie on a DVD that comes with some nice extras, which I've listed below. However, to the best of my knowledge, as of the time of this writing -- March, 2003, it's unlikely you'll be able to buy or rent the Sunrise DVD at a regular store or order it from a major online retailer. In the last paragraph of this article, I'll describe a way of getting the DVD through January 31, 2004. But first I'll give a brief discussion of the film.

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.
Michael Collins DVD
Liam Neeson stars as the title character in this biopic about the Irish folk hero who led the fight against British rule some 80 years ago.

Years ago, I saw Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets in a theater and loved it. As the years went by, Scorsese became famous for his great films Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas, but I consider Mean Streets to be at least as good as any of his movies. His later films are more polished and appeal to a wider audience, but I like the raw, personal feel of Mean Streets.

Laura (1944) is one of the great classic Hollywood movies. It's a stylish film noir with an exceptional cast that includes Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, Vincent Price, and Judith Anderson. Elegantly directed by Otto Preminger, the movie won an Academy Award for cinematography, and the costuming and art direction are outstanding. The film is famous for David Raksin's haunting music.

DVD Pick: "Dracula" (1931)
There have been other movie adaptations of the Dracula story, but to my mind, nothing can top the 1931 classic starring Bela Lugosi in the title role. Lugosi has always defined Count Dracula in my mind, and no other actor can match his distinctive brand of menace. Of course, circa 1931 special effects don’t match the visual wizardry of modern movies, but I believe the eerie atmosphere this film creates in my imagination is perhaps the most potent effect ever invented.
Will Blockbuster Acquire Circuit City?
Blockbuster has publicly announced today an offer to acquire Circuit City. There are reports Blockbuster is considering the idea of streaming movies and other video content directly over broadband to TVs using a proprietary set-top box. The proposed acquisition may be in part motivated by the concept of using Circuit City stores as an outlet to sell the set-top boxes. However, some analysts are dubious that the acquisition makes good business sense.

Three of the movies are in French, two are in Japanese, two in Italian, and one each in Bengali, Russian, and Swedish. In my opinion, the films listed below are among the greatest in all of cinema.
DVD Pick: Bringing Up Baby
Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn star in the 1938 screwball comedy Bringing Up Baby, which was directed by Howard Hawks. The story is about a nerdy paleontologist, a madcap heiress, a pet leopard named Baby, a vivacious wire-haired fox terrier and a brontosaurus bone. Although Grant and Hepburn play characters that often look ridiculous, the two lead actors pull off the neat trick of always retaining their glamour.

A Beautiful Mind | DVD Movie Review - DVD Pick...
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.

Read my review of Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones. The review also includes information on the special features on the two-disc DVD set.
DVD Pick: Ushpizin
Ushpizin (2004) is a pleasant little film that takes place in an ultra-Orthodox community in modern-day Jerusalem, but its message is universal. The dialogue is in Hebrew, and the DVD provides English and Spanish subtitles.

Something’s Gotta Give is very lightweight, has glossy Hollywood production values, and feels like a slick Broadway play opened out. Still, I found the film both romantic and laugh-out-loud funny.

Ever since I was a child, I've been enchanted by The Sound of Music, and after seeing this film on DVD, I can see why I've always loved it. Now that I'm older, I consider The Sound of Music to be a guilty pleasure, but it is still one of my favorite movies. I agree with those who say the characters and situations aren't completely believable, but that is also part of the charm. I can forgive this film its flaws--many of which are the flaws of an old-fashioned musical.

Die Dreigroschenoper was a big hit on the Berlin stage, and in 1930 a movie company began the process of adapting it for the screen. The film director was G.W. Pabst, whose movies were among the most artistically successful during the 1920s. Pabst's films are marked by social and political concerns, which made him a good fit for the Brecht-Weill material and helped him to add the proper visual dimension. The movie version of Die Dreigroschenoper, which was released in 1931, is a masterpiece.
