5.0 out of 5 stars great movie, Feb. 28 2004
I'll give five stars for the film, but four stars for the DVD.
No insert and so-so extras.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As The Original, Dec 30 2003
This review is from: Solaris (Widescreen) (DVD)
I don't know why we are subjected to movies remade in English. Such as Vanilla Sky, City of Angels, and Insomnia. I guess most Americans can't read. Anyway. If you can't or don't want to see the original Russian film, (that happens to be a classic) this a decent substitute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of the film, Nov. 30 2003
Most of the extended cut DVDs out there are not done this well. This is perfect, better than the 2-disc DVD. A must buy. Widescreen only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Sequel, Nov. 19 2003
This is a crowd pleaser, not a groundbreaking film like 2001. But somehow it seems like a good idea. 2001 left a lot of things unanswered and 2010 delivers those answers, isn't that the way its supposed to be? Anyway, both movies are great in their own ways, and every one should own both. 2001 to expand your mind, 2010 to blow it away.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Sci-Fi Film... Ever!, Nov. 19 2003
I read somewhere that 2001 is the perfect blend of music and imagery, and its true, this film is beautiful. Its intelligent plot is deep and thought provoking. It reminds me of the classic silent films of the 1920's. This is the most realistic film about space travel ever made. Highly recommended to lovers of Kubric, silent film, and sci-fi!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book vs. Film, Oct. 27 2003
Its impossible to turn a one thousand page book into a film without some pages getting torn out. So get used to it. You have to forget about the book (as good as it is), and look at the film for what it is: action and adventure. Now, with that in mind, do any other movies even come close?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD, Oct. 27 2003
I think I can say this is just about the best DVD I have ever bought. Everyone should own it, because no one will be disappointed. This has all the classic songs, guitar smashing, and Moon you could want.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not the original, for sure, Oct. 23 2003
This review is from: The Matrix Reloaded (DVD)
