For Your Viewing Pleasure

No chick flicks here . . .
  • Band of Brothers

    Best thing I have ever seen on TV or film, period.

     
  • Tombstone - The Director's Cut (Vista Series)
    starring Kurt Russell, Val Kilmer

    My favorite movie.  But then again, you may be the Antichrist.

     
  • To End All Wars
    starring Robert Carlyle, Kiefer Sutherland

    What a powerful and moving film!  It gets right (historically) what the Bridge on the River Kwai does not.  It leaves you with the haunting question-"what does it mean to love your enemy?"

     
  • Braveheart
    starring Mel Gibson, Sophie Marceau

    "Freeedddooommm"

     
  • Cream - Royal Albert Hall - London May 2-3-5-6 2005
    starring Cream

    I waited more than thirty years for this and it was worth it!  I'll bet I've listened to Cream for more hours through the years than any other band.  I'll never forget the first time I heard "Sunshine of Your Love" or Clapton's opening riff on "Spoonful."  I was in the 9th grade and I remember it like it was yesterday!  And now here they are again, like aged wine--mellow and more accomplished.  Even if the anger and intensity of their youth is long gone, Eric, Ginger and Jack are still the best rock musicians ever. 

     
  • 100 Years of the New York Yankees

    As I keep reminding the Angel fans at church (Anaheim Stadium is two blocks away) who give me guff of late, you only have twenty-five more world championships to go.  No rally monkey to be seen here--only people like Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, Mantle, Berra and Whitey.  Oh yeah . . . and pinstripes.  And did I mention twenty-six world series victories?

     
  • Glory (Special Edition)
    starring Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes, Morgan Freeman

    A very powerful and moving film.  Great acting, great score, historically accurate, with one of the most moving endings I have ever seen.  Get the Kleenex. 

     
  • Gettysburg (Widescreen Edition)
    starring Tom Berenger, Martin Sheen

    Replace Martin Sheen with Jason Robards (originally cast as General Lee), have these guys grow real beards and chuck the glue-on fakes, and then you have a great movie.  Jeff Daniel's portrayal of Joshua Chamberlain is powerful.  Why the 20th Maine didn't turn and run is a marvel to me. 

     
  • Luther
    starring Joseph Fiennes, Alfred Molina, Peter Ustinov, Bruno Ganz

    So why is it that a movie about Luther doesn't mention justification?  But it does give you a sense of the times and the gravity of what Luther did.

     
  • Mr. Bean - The Whole Bean (Complete Set)
    starring Rowan Atkinson

    "You got the Turkey on?"

     
  • The Civil War - A Film by Ken Burns
    starring Ken Burns

    Other than the few revisionist "experts" who think the Civil War is still being fought, this is an outstanding documentary.  The correspondence from the period--which serves as a basis for much of the script--is simply wonderful.  Oh, to be able to write like some of these people . . .

     
  • When It Was a Game - Triple Play Collection

    If you are close to 50 and grew up collecting baseball cards, you gotta see this one!

     
  • 61*
    starring Barry Pepper, Thomas Jane

    I don't want to hear Hank Aaron or Barry Bonds complain about negative media--poor Roger Maris got it worse than anyone.  How dare he break the Babe's record for most home runs in a season.
