Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black P&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Johnny Depp
I actually went on the Pirate’s of the Caribbean ride at Disney Land as a kid. And apart from a few scenes, (especially on the extended DVD version), there’s only a vague derivation between the ride and the film. To be honest, the film is much better.
Johnny Depp steals the show as the down-on-his-luck pirate captain, Jack Sparrow. A lot has been made of his bizarre take on this character, supposedly based on Keith Richard’s drug induced eccentricities.

To Kill a Mockingbird (Widescreen) <b>DVD</b> ~ Gregory Peck
It's easy to think "To Kill a Mockingbird" is older than it is. Released in 1962, the same year James Bond was immortalised in "Dr. No," director Robert Mulligan chose to film in black & white, despite Hollywood's rush to adopt the new Kodachrome II color film. Since the story is set in the 1930's, the classic look of the film adds weight to its historic reality.

For those who also enjoy Robert Duvall's… Read more

When I use the term Adult Fairytale, some might think of films like, "The Princess Bride" or "Ever After" but "A Walk in the Clouds" is a more suitable example. Director Alfonso Arau has created a magical story peopled by outsized characters and placed in a spiritual world called the Aragon Estate. The film permits we mere mortals to visit this world, a Spanish style winery nestled in California's Napper Valley. We arrive along with Paul Sutton, Keanu Reeves; a stranger in a strange land.
Paul's background is economically exposed at the start of the movie. A man returns from World War II, hoping to greet his wife whom he met and married just before shipping out. He dreams of a… Read more
