My favorite movie

  of Kama Sutra: A Tale of Love (1996)
 


I am not much for sappy love stories - I'm usually the one laughing at my friends who cry during movies, but this story is so beautiful and the costuming, setting, and music, is all so wonderful, it really makes a total package. I am aware that this is an HBO movie, has mediocre acting, and is chock full of stereotypes and exoticism of east Indian culture, but when it comes down to it, such a great love story.
The funniest sitcom ever - don't miss it!

  of Soap - The Complete First Season (Disc 1 of 3) (1977)
 


I remember watching this when I was younger and all I remember was laughing my ass off. I just watched the entire first disc of season one all in a row because you cant turn this DVD off! Fantastic writing, hilarious plot twists in this spoof of crappy dramatic soap operas. This series was a starting place for many great comedians like Billy Crystal. MUST SEE!
you can die without seeing it

  of Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion (1997)
 


The Evangelion series is amazing, without doubt - definitely do not watch this unless you have seen the entire series. What's frustrating is that this is NOT the end to the Evagelion Series, but the end to the Evangelion movie "Death & Rebirth", which is supposedly a summary of the entire series. EXCEPT that they changed the ending and character plots. "The End of Evangelion" was supposed to finally bring a conclusion to a series that many fans felt was left hanging with no real ending. It ended up bringing up more questions than answers. I was happy with the way the series ended. I was confused, but satisfied. It left it up to the viewer to interpret the experience and what happened. This film just seems to be attempting to fill a gap that never needed to be filled. Absolutely beautiful in its own right, philosophical, intense, and personal, staying true to the feel of the series and of course great music, sound, and cinematography - but as an ending to the series, a bit of an overdone failure.
The beginning of a genre

When it comes to Kung Fu movies, you really can't expect much - and going from there - this movie rocks! This is one of Quentin Terantino's inspirations for Kill Bill, and when you watch you'll know why. It is the CHEEEEEZZIEST Kung Fu you will ever watch with non stop laughs induced by horrible special effects, bad subtitles/dubbing and ridiculous characters. I guess it is a sequel, but I cant recall the first movie it is based on. Anyway - I showed it at my university for an Old School Kung Fu Film Festival, and it was a hit!
Don't miss this!

This review is for both of the discs for this NOVA episode.
NOVA is by far the best educational show ever made, and when they belted out this 3 hour/3 part episode on String Theory, they spared no expenses. I know nothing about physics or science, and by far am not really a nerd - but this is an amazing, well made, exciting, and profound explanation of String Theory, starting from the very beginning of Newton's laws - through an interesting history on Einstein's theories, and then in the second disc, explaining the fundamentals of String - and then its implications and application to other theories, like the Big Bang, alternate universes, intelligent life on other plantes, time travel, philosophy, and more. Uses examples and easy to follow stories so anyone can understand and appreciate what they are trying to do.
These other reviews don't seem to get it....

By far the BEST anime series ever made - it is nothing close to another mere sci-fi mecha fighting plot. If you read the other summaries you get a pretty good idea of the outer shell of the plot - but they fail to note how philisophical this piece really is. It is not just people using Mecha to fight things called angels -
*it is about how humans have become so technologically advanced, that they are actually able to fight the angels of armegeddon when God sends them to earth
*It is also about the disconnectedness of humans to ourselves and eachother, and how we cannot wage outer wars until the wars within our own souls are won.
*It is about what it means to be human, have a soul, and a purpose in a world of constant conflict.
*It contains amazing biblical and religious references and forces you to examine the nature of god and our future relationship to him/her
*not to mention TONS of plot twists, surprises and life-changing revelations!

The mechas (evas) are NOT machines in this series like other unoriginal series - they are creatures cloned from angels that are merely contained by a metal shell to make them controllable by humans.

I am disappointed that viewers missed these important points and decided to put Evangelion into a category that It absolutely does not fit - NGE is in a category all its own and for me, set the bar for how anime should be made, made me re-evaluate my spirituality, and made me appreciate this wonderful medium that very few directors utilize to get the most important messages across to viewers.
