After the Miracle: The 1969 Mets Twenty Years Later
After the Miracle: The 1969 Mets Twenty Years Later
by Maury Allen

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the original, April 8 2004
When I was a kid I read his original book about the Miracle Mets, and really enjoyed it. This one was good, but just not as compelling. It was cool, though, to find out what happened in some of the players' lives.

This was a good effort from Bill James, butit left me wanting more. There were a lot of key managers that could have been addressed in greater detail

3.0 out of 5 stars Why isn't this man in a lunatic asylum?, April 8 2004
I never watched the TV show, but I ordered the Curb Your Enthusiasm DVD based on an interview I heard on NPR (think it was Fresh Air, and I think the guy that plays Larry's agent was being interviewed by Terry Gross).
After watching the DVD, I can say that the show IS funny, but sort of a one-trick pony. I tired of Larry's foibles towards the end. He is so off-the-wall that in real life he would be arrested or committed. He had three physical confrontations over two episodes, and that's not too funny. In fact, I get the impression that when the writing or improv breaks down, they go to the physical stuff, and that's hard to pull off.
I don't regret buying this, but I'm pretty certain I won't get the next set.
ALSO - if you are considering, be sure to buy it here on Amazon. It's $27.99. I saw people offering it on EBAY for the same or more... and you get free shipping here, since it is over $25.

A great adventure of male friends on a canoeing trip in a remote wilderness region.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great spy flick !!!, April 7 2004
This review is from: Gorky Park (Widescreen) (DVD)
Lotsa great performances here - William Hurt, Lee Marvin, etc. It's a gripping mystery that follows the efforts of Hurt as a Russian police detective tracking down vicious murders.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but overpriced, April 7 2004
I paid $25.48 for this DVD and that was pretty high. Can anyone explain why some DVD's are SO expensive? I've seen this movie a zillion times & never tire of it.
Richard Dreyfuss serves up an amazing performance, and it was great to see Wolfman Jack....and Suzanne Somers.

This review is from: Great Santini (Full Screen) (DVD)
What a great performance by Duvall as the ultra-macho, hard-drinking fighter pilot who is at once loved & hated by his family. This is an incredible flick. You won't be disappointed...
