5.0 out of 5 stars Jailhouse Rock July 30 2002
Format:DVD
Jailhouse Rock successfully capitalized on the rebellious side of Elvis's persona, which was an aspect of his image still making headlines at the time of the film's release. As an embittered Vince Everett, Elvis portrayed the most volatile, as well as the most exciting, character of his film career. After accidentally killing a man in a barroom brawl over a woman, Vince serves a manslaughter sentence in the state penitentary, making him cynical and self-centered. While Vince is in prison. former country singer Hunk Houghton, played by veteran character actor Mickey Shaughnessy, takes the young man under his wing and teaches him how to play guitar. After his release, Vince stumbles onto a hot, new singing style. With the help of record promoter Peggy Van Alden, played by child actress Judy Tyler, he takes the entertainment industry by storm. Later, Hunk joins Vince's entourage, which becomes larger as the ambitious young singer fights his way to the top. Unfortunately, Vince leaves Peggy behind, despite her love for him. Attempting to teach the arrogant young Vince a lesson, Hunk punches Vince in the throat, injuring his vocal cords. A repentant Vince then realizes his love for Peggy, and his voice is miraculously restored.
Jailhouse rock showcases Elvis Presley the rebel. Elvis's character - Vince Everett - is self-centered, overly aggressive toward women, and somewhat greedy. Though he exhibits a change of heart toward the end of the movie, it is his unruly behavior and defiant attitude that many remember from the film. This is Elvis at his finest showing off his ability to be as tough as James Dean or Marlon Brando.
Far from being greedy or selfish, in real life Elvis was known throughout his life for his generosity toward friends, acquaintances, and even complete strangers.

living fast, dying young, and leaving a good-looking corpse. That is the opening line from 'True Romance,' and I couldn't have put it any better myself. Elvis' best movie and one of the best ever. If you ever wondered why Elvis was so big, watch this movie. He defines cool. I went on an Elvis kick and watched a bunch of them. When I got to this one, I couldn't believe how good it was. It's not cheesy happy-go-lucky like most Elvis movies. It's got heart. The music is great and Elvis' performance combines Michael Jackson's dance moves with James Dean's attitude, only he did it first. He's a rebel who plays by his own rules. This is one of the most underrated movies ever. It's never mentioned when the best movies are discussed, but it definitely should be. If you miss when rock was still rock, you'll love this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars ELVIS AT HIS BAD BOY BEST! March 24 2002
Format:DVD
Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley gives a sparkling performace in this fast paced "rebel" flick of the fifties. Definitely one of the best movies of the period, Elvis lives up to his title as a prisoner with a voice of gold. With rockin' hits as "Baby I don't care" , "Treat me nice" and his explosive music video "Jailhouse Rock", the film provokes foot stomping and a whurling dervish of excitement. In "Jailhouse Rock", Elvis is bad - and you're going to love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis shows why he is the KING! May 16 2002
Format:DVD
This is not Elvis' best movie, I still think King Creole is his #1, but Jailhouse Rock is not far behind. If they could have kept Elvis in roles like these, he would have been listed along with James Dean and Marlon Brando as the greatest actors of that period. Besides it has my favorite line out of any movie ever, "That ain't tactics honey, that's just the beast in me". He looked great, sang great, and no one has ever even come close to being this cool. He was and will forever be the KING!
