5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, Feb. 27 2003
This review is from: Little Women (Audio CD)
The music on this soundtrack is so moving. In the movie it brings you through so many emotions and it is the same even without the movie. You know how some cd's have songs on them that make you cry by just hearing them? Well, this is deffinitely one of those cd's. It is so moving. But then Thomas Newman always is. I would recommend all of his music to the true music lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, Feb. 27 2003
This review is from: Kiss Me Kate (VHS Tape)
This play is soo good! It is a play within a play within a play. I saw it on TV a few nights ago, and was struck by how funny it was. The singing is also outstanding and though there's not as much dancing it is really good when there is. Sometimes the songs drag on a bit (you think they're over but they're not) but becuase the overall play is so excellent you can stand the long songs. The two that play Frederic Graham and Lilli Vinessi are fantastic! They are deffinitely the best in the show, they have such star quality. When they sing you feel like they are singing to you and they have a very powerful presence. Not to mention that the play is totally hilarious, it had my sides splitting. I would deffinitely recommend this item!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, Nov. 25 2002
All of the extra footage is greatly enlightening, and really opens up the actors to you. It is very interesting how you are able to get such a good idea of who they really are. After hearing them all speak about it, and see all of the friendships that they formed and the great experiences they had I was a little envious that I couldn't have been in the movie. The extra footage also reveals all of the enormous amount of work that went in to this fantasic film of epic proportions. The movie is just as amazing as it was in the theatre, and the extra scenes are fantastic. Some of the scenes I can't understand how they were able to take out because they set up parts of the following movies. I was a little disappointed that there was no Tom Bombadil, but after seeing all the work that was put into the making of this film I am just appreecaitive that they made it at all. It is absalutely brilliant and a deffinite must for any Lord of the Rings fan! If there was anything higher than 5 stars I would give it to this film, it is two thumbs way up high!!:0)

This review is from: White Christmas 54 (VHS Tape)
It is a very cute movie, but I have to admit that is is also very corny. Bing Crosby is great, as usual, but the plot is pretty drab. The songs are pretty awful, and the dancing is okay. All in all thuogh it is a very cute movie

This is some of the most moving music I have every had the pleasure of hearing. It blends perfectly in the movie and listening to it by itself is no less that thrilling. The theme captures the resignation with hope that Frodo and all the fellowship experiences. The Hhobbit theme captures the very essence of the hobbit's and establishes their culture in one's mind. All in all it is an excellent buy, and I would recomend it higher than highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie!, Aug. 20 2002
I loved this movie! I was a huge Brenden Fraser fan after seeing him in The Mummy and the Mummy Returns, so I rented this movie and fell in love with it. Brenden Fraser's character is almost the perfect guy, he can't sing, but he can definitely dance! The movie was done very well and has a lot of funny parts. Although, the first time I saw it I thought Alicia's character wasn't good enought for Brenden's I decided on the second viewing that they were perfect for eachother. A smashing movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars A completely breath-taking soundtrack., Jan. 4 2002
The songs in this sound track convey what you are feeling when you see the movie perfectly. You almost woudln't have to see the movie to know exactly what is going on in every song. The songs are loaded with feeling and they transport you right to Middle Earth. These songs convey every aspect of the story. You can picture the beautiful scenery of New Zealand (where the movie was filmed), you get to know the elves, dwarves, hobbits, and Gandalf, and you feel the immense evil of Sauron. This is the type of music that you listen to and feel it flowing around you and in you. One song, in particular is so sadly sweet that it makes you want to cry. 'The Breaking of the Fellowship' is especially breathtakingly lovely:), but all of the songs are absalutely beautiful. So, as you can guess, I would definitely recommend this cd.:)
