Original Gangstas [Import]
Original Gangstas [Import]
VHS

2.0 out of 5 stars good idea but bad come out, Dec 26 2003
Fred Williamson(Black Ceasar, From Dusk Till Dawn) is John Bookman and he returns home after his father is shot up by a gang called the rebels, a gang he formed back in his day, led by Spyro and Damien..two ruthless thugs who changed the gang from what it used to be, the rebels think they own the streets. well Bookman and co. join forces to try to stop them. an allstar cast including Jim Brown(Mars Attacks,Salughter) Ron O'Neal(Superfly), Pam Grier(Ghost Of Mars, Foxy Brown, Jackie Brown), Paul Winfield(Mars Attacks, The Terminator), Richard Roundtree(Antitrust, Shaft, Corky Romando) and many more. takes its toll on the 70's black films but is too much uninspired with wooden performances and a lack of, anything...was expecting much more

3.0 out of 5 stars funny and witty, Dec 23 2003
Joseph Gordon Levitt(HalloweenH2), Tv's 3rd Rock From The Sun) is in love with Julia Stiles little sister, Julia Stiles(A Guy Thing, The Bourne Identity2002) and her sister cant date or do anything unless their father, a very hilarious Larry Miller(Best In Show, Carnival Of Souls), says so. so Levitt meets David Krumholtz(The Mexican, Santa Clause 1 and 2) and he tells him about this rebel kid, played perfectly by Heath Ledger(The Order, The Patriot), so Levitt makes a deal with Ledger and Ledger puts the charm on Stiles and Levitt puts his charm on Stiles' sister. witty and funny with good performances by the young hot cast. other cast members include Andrew Keegan(O, Camp Nowhere), Alyson Jenney(Tv's The West Wing), Gabrielle Union(Bring It On, Deliver Us From Eva) and Daryl "Chill" Mitchell(Tv's ED and Sgt. Bilko). a good time

1.0 out of 5 stars someone kill me now, Dec 23 2003
This review is from: Down to Earth (VHS Tape)
dreadful comedy about Chris Rock(Pootie Tang, Lethal Weapon 4) who is a dreadful comedian and he dies and goes to heaven where he meets the gatekeepers, Eugene Levy(American Pie Trilogy, Bringing Down The House) and Chazz Palmenteri(The Usual Suspects, Mulholland Falls) and Palmenteri puts rock into a dead billionares body, where he meets the guys butler, Mark Addy(A Knight's Tale, The Order), his maid, Wanda Skykes(Wanda At Large), a mad woman, Regina Hall or King, one of the 2 and people who killed the guy, Greg Germaan(Tv's Ally McBeal) and Jennifer Coolidge(both Legally Blondes and all 3 American Pie movies). starts off ok but then bellys into a swirl of stupid acting, dreadful comedy and mindnumbing music, leaves you with wanting to kill Rock because he made this movie, kill him and the director. its just blehhh, one of the worst movies of 2001. Greg Cho also stars

3.0 out of 5 stars jittery and nail-biting, Dec 23 2003
This review is from: Urbania [Import] (VHS Tape)
i really bit my nails for like a lot of this movie..it mixes a lot of things in here when he experience the life of Dan Flutterman's character, a gay man who just got out of a rough relationship with this guy..then he meets weird people, like Matt the bartender, played greatly by the awesome Josh Hamilton(Alive, The House Of Yes, The Bourne Identity), his gay friend, a creepy Alan Cumming(GoldenEye, Anniversary Party, Eyes Wide Shut) and many others...focuses a lot on homosexuality which Flutterman's character is and it gives it that atmosphere...some intense scenes like I said before, with some great ways to sprinkle the urban legends in. Matt Keslaar(The Last Days Of Disco, Pyshco Beach Party, Scream 3) also stars

Black Circle Boys [Import]
Black Circle Boys [Import]
VHS

4.0 out of 5 stars shattering performance by Mabius, Dec 22 2003
Scott Bairstow(Wild America, New Best Friend) and his parents move to a new town, he's enrolled into a new school, its where he meets a girl and the girl tells him about the Black Circle Boys, lead by Eric Mabius(Resident Evil, The Crow: Salvation), and other members include a fat brainwhacked kid, Donnie Wahlberg(Dreamcatcher, Southie), Wahlberg seems like a pervert..really and a skinny and whimpy Chad Lindberg(October Sky, The Fast and The Furious)..they include Bairstow into their little circle..party, rock on and do rituals..one involving a cat. Mabius goes really crazy and his performance is the glue that holds this movie together...very raw and brutal...a good movie

2.0 out of 5 stars dry, slow and not much fun, Dec 19 2003
This review is from: First Knight (VHS Tape)
this one follows into the love triangle of King Arthur, Lancelot and Lady Guinevere....not much exciting really..although there are some good moments and the passion can be put off to the side as dry and not great also..Gere, Connery and Ormond have their moments but the story itself from Willaim Nicholson is silly, but Camelot is beautiful...dry, I say..NOTE: look closely at the part where Gere is being knighted as one of them...you'll see a familiar face if your a Buffy or Angel fan, Alexis Denisof is one of the knights of the round table..dont miss it

5.0 out of 5 stars scores on all counts, Dec 17 2003
This review is from: Roger Dodger [Import] (DVD)
Roger Dodger is a look at a man and his nephew as the man, Roger(played awesomely and great by the wonderful Campbell Scott(Big Night)) shows his nephew, Nick(Jesse Eisenberg(The Empereors Club), really great also) into the world of picking up chicks. great performances all around..the ladies are top notch. other cast members include Jessica Beals(Vampire's Kiss), Izabella Rosselini(Death Becomes Her), Elizabeth Berkely(Showgirls) and Ben Sheknman(Jesus' Son). wonderful and daring...its a masterpiece

3.0 out of 5 stars temptations is a good movie, Dec 16 2003
This review is from: Temptations (VHS Tape)
I watched this movie on NBC when it aired and it was a good TVM...I really dont care fot TVM'S but there are some out there that are good and this one is..its just about the rise and fall of one of Motown's famous groups..the temptations..singing like My Girl and all their classic songs..nicely direted and acted..NOTE: D.B. Woodside(Romeo Must Die, Tv's Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Flashpoint2002) plays a Temptation. a feel good movie that doesnt have to suck

2.0 out of 5 stars shallow, Dec 16 2003
This review is from: Wit (VHS Tape)
its shallow...some HBO movies are shallow and hollow at the same time..some are too depressing..though the only reason I watched this dry movie is because of a supporting actor named Jonathan M. Woodard who played Jason. Woodard was on the last season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and can currently be seen on season 5 of Angel..that's all I watched this movie for....it sets itself up for a movie about cancer..but it sorta gets boring after awhile

2.0 out of 5 stars stupid badguys meet smart kid, Dec 16 2003
it's like the Masterminds of 1996 even before Masterminds released in 1997.....this one has a bunch of terroists taking over the school as they swirve in..rebel teen Corey Haim is the one who mostly takes down every single badguy, including the leader played by Jeff Kober(A Man Apart, Tv's Buffy The Vampire Slayer)...not much fun but Haim sure knows how to defend himself...the part where the badguy slides in the room into the tablesaw is highlight
