Gladiator is one of my favorite movies. It has action, drama, great cinematography, outstanding fight scenes, love, great acting, and most importantly, it's a great story.For those who haven't seen it …

Last Samurai
THE LAST SAMURAI is for many of us a Sleeper of a movie. The media mania was so high at the release time in the theaters that it seemed by the trailers that this was another massively expensive Epic riding …

Kill Bill Vol. 2

Well this movie has a number of flaws....They aren't in the storylines both of which, (the story and the reading of the story) are engaging and interesting.They aren't in the characters which are creative …
reviewed The Matrix. February 06, 2004

What can I say about this film that hasn't been said. It is the first of its genre and the best. It opened a whole new way to film fight scenes. Neo is a quiet businessman who seems to get sucked into …

Enter the Dragon (Aniv Slip) (1973)
Bruce Lee was great. The story is a little corny (It is no Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) but it is action packed. Jim Kelly was also good and John Saxon shows some passable martial arts skills. The …

Gladiator
My rating indicates my regard for this film in terms of its entertainment value. The plot is essentially uncomplicated and too often predictable. There is almost no character development. And there is …
reviewed The Matrix. July 23, 2003
DVD front
This is an exceptional film, full of action, suspense, mystical philosophy and symbolism. The story is set in a sci-fi future where AI machines have taken over the world and plugged biological humans …

I re-watched the Matrix the other night, having just watched its outstanding sequel, Reloaded. The greater emphasis on philosophical themes in Reloaded casts new light on their more tangential (and thus …
reviewed The Matrix. June 07, 2003
DVD front
THE MATRIX is the most popular film to come out in recent years and definitely the best since 1995's CASINO. It is the creation of The Wachowski Brothers who were, until this film, basically unheard of. …
reviewed The Transporter. April 26, 2003
The Transporter
Not usually a fan of violent films, I happened on this movie as a desperate attempt to be entertained. And what a happy jolt it was to discover probably one on the best action movies ever made. Though …
reviewed Shogun. March 25, 2003
Shogun
SHOGUN and AZTEC are the best historical epics ever, in my opinion. SHOGUN is fast moving, takes place in a society we don't know much about, has engaging heros and villains, is stunningly detailed and …
reviewed Shogun. May 20, 2002
Shogun
This rates up with the best books I have ever read. The book looks imposing (more than 1200 pages) but once you start you will be about 500 pages into it before you know it.Super-rich in history with …

Gladiator
Many years ago, Hollywood mass produced epic movies that were not only monuments of spectacle, but also contained meaningful messages that gave films moral magnitude as well. There are several reasons …
reviewed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. July 26, 2001
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
Every once in a while, I find it entertaining to watch a picture (or read a book) which falls outside the genres I usually enjoy. Last weekend, my wife and I watched this movie, and enjoyed it thoroughly.While …

As you spiral around two enemies floating in mid-air, arms jabbing and legs adrift, bullets fly just inches above their heads as they empty the chambers of their menacing pistols. The matrix dazzles you …
reviewed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. July 01, 2001
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
This is a terrific film, combining the once-again-fashionable grandiloquent, epic sweep, stunning choreography (never before have fight sequences so resembled classical dance) and most remarkably, a stiffly …

Seven Samurai
This movie is a classic tale. It works on every level, Characters, Plot, Settings, Storyline, the works. OK you may not understand the culture of Japan, so parts of the samurai culture may not be clearly …

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the greatest martial arts movie I've ever seen. Like all great films in the genre, there are reams of battles, but Director Ang Lee has taken things farther. His movie …

Gladiator
Gladiator has somehow garnered adulation. It snagged the Oscar for Best Picture (no mean feat), made lots of money, and collected a reasonable share of critical acclaim. But even after watching it (twice), …

Gladiator
Goodbye, to another hard hit-negative review. Here is the revision of a review written months ago. Gladiator is a delivery of a story told in the form of many movies, but not in character. Maximus is …
