: What are you watching on DVD these days?

Ray -- we watched it last night and got totally absorbed into the story, music, and Jamie Foxx's remarkable portrayal of Ray. Haven't watched a movie that has grabbed me as much as this one did in quite some time. Much enjoyed, and I doubt it will be very long before it gets popped into the player for a second viewing!! Wish the 'extras' had been a bit longer, they're rather short, but found them fun and interesting to view.

Jamie Foxx is just amazing! As soon as I hit play it just grabbed me, the music, the drama.
After the movie was done, I watched it again later that night listening to Taylor Hackford's commenteray.
After that, I ordered the DVD.

Ray: Just finished watching and singing/humming/tapping, to
this great movie.
It's amazing how much talent this guy had.
Makes you wonder what the effect of the heroin
was to his career, as he had 40 great years at the
end without it.
It was great to see him return to country music, my favourite,
although he could sing just about anything.
And how about running around as a kid, on the grass and dirt
in your bare feet, with no worries?
How great is that?

The Forgotten - Julianne Moore stars as a woman who, while coming to terms with the loss of her son, finds that all traces of his existence have disappeared. All she has left are her memories of him. Is she delusional...or is something sinister happening?
The movie started off well: the first half of it was actually quite good and fairly suspenseful. Then it got progressively sillier, and the ending was a flop.

Homicide: Life on the Street - Season 6 --- I have all previous seasons of this former network tv show, and we've watched every episode. I never saw this season when it aired, so went for the set strictly because we have so liked what we've seen so far, and wanted more. It sure has not failed us. The show delivers some of the best, and certainly most realistic, police drama that tv has ever offered. Fine writing and acting.

Sharktale I rented it last at Blockbuster. I was alright, short and sweet.

This afternoon, I watched one of the most heartwrenching, gentle films I've seen in a long time, Since Otar Left... It's a French film, set in Tblisi, Georgia, and to summarize the plot would take away some of the twists, but the writing is wonderful, the acting is beautiful and the sentiments are so real they practically reach out from the screen to grab your heart.

The Village - Unfortunately, M. Night Shyamalan's most recent "suspense-thriller" was neither particularly suspenseful nor thrilling. :(
2005-02-13, 12:20 PM
My wife and I watched The Village last night, Eljay. We both agree with your assessment. Not very good.

Night Court - Season 1 -- Had forgotten just how good this show was - it's fun to go back and view these first episodes. Season 1 was a short one though, only 13 episodes - wish there were more!!

Bye Bye Love Randy Quaid, Paul Reiser and Janeane Garofalo

Can't wait - the Bob Newhart show is coming out in a few weeks.
2005-02-15, 04:22 PM
I picked up The Grudge with Sarah Michelle Gellar.
It freaked me out when we watched it in the theater. :D dts-ES 6.1 would've been sweet!
2005-02-15, 04:31 PM
I just ordered Soap - Season 1....can't wait. Quite possibly one of the funniest sitcoms ever....with the exception of Arrested Development of course...
2005-02-15, 06:12 PM
I am waiting to see John Carpenter's "The Thing". It was re-released in Oct 2004. I cant find it to rent so I may have to go and buy one.
2005-02-15, 08:00 PM
First time I ever saw the re-make (Carpenter's version), I just about s*** myself. Saw again last year. Still pretty darn good, but you can tell the effects were 20 years old.

Shaun Of The Dead
The best Zombie parody I have ever seen!
