5.0 out of 5 stars Frida, June 17 2003
This review is from: Frida (DVD)
Frida and Salma Hayek did good. This is a beautiful movie. It's weird and quirky and it will make some uncomfortable and disgusted. But in that it remains faithful to the artist. It does mainly explore the sensational side of Frida but then it is a movie after all. The aclaim this movie recieved was justified.

This review is from: Tao Te Ching Personal (Paperback)
If philosophy is an interest or if you are interested in Zen and finding yourself this is for you. The pocket version is great, with explanations at the back. Wether you read it for fun and with a critical eye or embrace it this is an interesting read. You are bound to identify with some of it and it is key on a historical level. It is very insightfull and is bound to make you think.

Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India
Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India
Offered by Vanderbilt CA
Price: CDN$ 29.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Lagaan, June 17 2003
This is a fun CD. As an uninitiat I find it fun and entertainning. Indian music, especially from Bollywood movies, is not for everyone but if you like the genre you'll like this. It has a good beat to it and is catchy, though the India/ England mix doesn't really work in this format. I would recomend watching the movie "Lagaan" before you buy this CD.

This review is from: Princess Mononoke (DVD)
This is simply an amazing movie. As animated movies go this is one of the best in secent years. It is also suitable both for children and adults. It can be viewed both for entertainment enjoyment and on a more serious level. Indeed it brings up a lot of cultural and moral issues but there is no doubt that it is still an exploration in fantasy. This is already considered by many to be a classic and a "must-have" and this is justified. It definetely has that intriguing foreign flavor but everyone can identify with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forever Young, June 17 2003
Forever Young is a good family movie. It's gentle and fun. My only real negative comment about it concerns the plot line which is very unbelievable. I felt it never really tried to justify itself. Mel Gibson is his usual charming self and Jamie Lee Curtis is delightful. Kudos to the young Elijah Wood who shines. his singing scene probably won him over all of the female audience, including me. All in all it's an enjoyable movie, not ambitious but one that can easily become a favorite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrison's Flowers, June 17 2003
This review is from: Harrison's Flowers (DVD)
I passed up this movie when it came out in theaters but I recently watched it on DVD and realized this had been a mistake. I actually saw it the same day as "The Pianist" and prefered Harrison's Flowers. It's not for the weak of heart and very realistic but manages to remain human without excessive sentimentality. The cinematography is beautiful and I love all the actors. Special mention to Andrian Brody who I found was endearing, without trying to be. All in all a really good movie which is probably more informative about the realities of war than any television media coverage.
