To Kill a Mockingbird (Collector's Edition) (1962)
In his later years, Peck acknowledged that Atticus Finch was his favorite role among many such as Frank Savage in Twelve O'Clock High and Phil Green in Gentleman's Agreement. Peck was the perfect choice …

Psycho (Universal Home Entertainment's 2-disc Legacy Series Special Edition DVD)
Even after more than 40 years, and even after having seen it so many times, I am still caught up in the tension which director Hitchcock develops so carefully. I am still shocked by the famous (infamous?) …

Dead Alive (Unrated) (Sp) (1993)
In a film like DEAD ALIVE, the plot is basically pointless. The only reason it exists is to add some humor to the bloody gore-fest that erupts and since it's discussed so often, it isn't necessary to …

Maid in Manhattan
Where Julia Roberts has great success in her box office Cinderella story, 'Pretty Woman', Jennifer Lopez is less than successful. I'm not saying that this is a bad movie---its cute, but its similarity …

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
Hollywood doesn't do very well when it comes to making movies about families that people actually enjoy watching. To paraphrase Bruce Campbell, I think it's all the spores that are effecting the brains …

Monsters, Inc.
If you have small children, movies such as this are worth their weight in gold: the kids love it (our two year old can barely start the day without at least seeing scare trainee Mr. Vile whose friends …

Fight Club
First impressions count, they last, and I think they explain the overwhelmingly positive reactions of the Amazon readership to this film. The first hour of Fight Club is truly, exquisitely, brilliant: …
reviewed Silence of the Lambs. December 19, 2002
As I have seen the film of the same name many times, I already understood the gruesome goal that piqued Jame Gumb's mind as he killed each of his victims and earned the name 'Buffalo Bill'. However, being …

This is probably Hitchcock's greatest film. It stands up alongside REAR WINDOW and PSYCHO as his great opus.Cary Grant teams with Hitchcock for the fourth and final time in this benchmark espionage journey …

Mulholland Dr.
Ed Gonzalez of Slant Magazine says it best, "Lynch's Mulholland Drive is...a haunting, selfish masterpiece that literalizes the theory of surrealism as perpetual dream-state."Amazingly, Mulholland Drive …

Die Hard
Action movies have been around for a long time (just watch some old Cagney or Bogart gangster flicks if you don't believe me). However, it wasn't until the late 70s and early 80s that action movies entered …
reviewed Mulholland Dr.. April 22, 2002
Mulholland Dr.
Without fail, it seems those who see Mulholland Drive have a knee-jerk reaction in one of two ways: (a) they think it's pointless and stupid and weird and they're completely baffled by it, or (b) they …
