It is wonderful to see these films. They are a great insight into the early years of life and film in the beginning of the 20th century.

|Apocalypto DVD (2006)
Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set DVD for sale Mel Gibson (BRAVEHEART, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST) tackles the downfall of Mayan civilization in his latest turn as writer/director. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) and his fellow villagers lead a peaceful life in the forest until a savage, unprovoked attack turns their world upside down. After hiding his pregnant wife and young son from the invaders, Jaguar Paw joins in the fight, only to be taken prisoner with the rest of the survivors. Uncertain of what the future holds and taken from his home to a thriving metropolis that might as well be a foreign country, Jaguar Paw has just one goal--to return to his wife and child. Jaguar Paw's journey is a coming-of-age saga running the gamut of love, loss, courage, and redemption.
Filmed in Mexico with a cast of indigenous Americans speaking in the Yucatec dialect, this is a tale filled with contrasts. Muted greens and browns define the forest village while the city is awash in bright colors. The wealthy live in opulence, sporting elaborate jewelry, clothing, and hairdos while the villagers wear twig and bone ornaments. The villagers respect both life and nature, but the rulers of the great stone city condone violence in an effort to appease their gods. Gibson's point is clear: the more "advanced" society is corrupt and unrepentant, while the more primitive Mayans have far greater faith and humanity. Gibson also drives home the recurring theme of rebirth with symbolism, including rain, pregnancy, and the arrival of Christianity. Beautifully filmed by Dean Semler and scored by James Horner, APOCALYPTO could benefit from some framing at its beginning to give the viewer a sense of time and place, but otherwise offers a rare glimpse into a lost world.
This film was directed by Mel Gibson. Extras include making of footage, deleted scene with optional commentary by Gibson and co-writer Farhad Safinia, and feature commentary by Gibson and Safinia.
|Death Proof DVDs (2007)
Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set film Master director Quentin Tarantino (PULP FICTION) indulges his inner fanboy by paying homage to his favorite B-movies in DEATH PROOF. Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) stalks beautiful women with his deadly vintage car, but when he picks a trio of tough girls (Rosario Dawson, Tracie Thoms, and Zoe Bell), he learns they aren't such easy prey. As with any Tarantino film, there are plenty of nods to pop culture. Most of the scenes are deliberately short on plot development, the dialogue comes thick and fast throughout, and the film stock is often cleverly manipulated to perfectly replicate the B-movie aesthetic. DEATH PROOF was originally released as part of the GRINDHOUSE double feature with Robert Rodriguez's PLANET TERROR.

Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set review The early 2000s have seen a string of big-budget remakes of classic horror films. In addition to THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE and THE HILLS HAVE EYES, John Carpenter's benchmark slasher flick HALLOWEEN has been given a new-millennial overhaul. At the helm of the project sits rocker Rob Zombie, whose previous films, HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES and THE DEVIL'S REJECTS, brought a fan's touch and an auteur's vision to the director's chair. While Zombie's HALLOWEEN is faithful to Carpenter's vision, there are some obvious changes, the most pronounced of these being the substantial focus on Michael Myers's childhood. The film posits Michael (played by a creepily vacant Daeg Faerch) as a troubled child made all the worse by a horrible home life--wonderfully illustrated via William Forsythe's performance as Deborah Myers's boyfriend--and constant abuse at school. Zombie paints Michael's pain with palpable grit and sleaze, but he isn't out to put our culture on the couch--he simply wants to show Michael killing his family. With the exception of Michael's therapy sessions while incarcerated, the film, post-massacre, stays loyal to the original.
Zombie's film is clearly the work of a filmmaker who knows and loves the genre. The director's signature is stamped all over HALLOWEEN (most notably in the use of grainy home movie footage and a smokin' classic rock soundtrack), although remnants of Carpenter's brilliant original still remain. When it comes to remakes, it's hard to ask for much more.
This 2 DVD special unrated director's cut edition of the Rob Zombie film is loaded with bonus features including alternate ending, deleted scenes and commentary with Rob.
|Romancing the Stone/The Jewel of the Nile - Gift Set DVDs (1984)
Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set movie ROMANCING THE STONE: Though she can spin wild tales of passionate romance, novelist Joan Wilder (Kathleen Turner) has no life of her own. Then one day adventure comes her way in the form of a mysterious package. It turns out that the parcel is the ransom she'll need to free her abducted sister, so Joan flies to South America to hand it over. But she gets on the wrong bus and winds up hopelessly stranded in the jungle--until she encounters Jack Colton (Michael Douglas), a man who could have stepped straight out of one of her novels.
Though his good looks and intrepid moves dazzle her, Joan quickly sees Jack for the cheap opportunist that he is. But he's all she's got, so together they journey out of the jungle, battling mudslides, druglords, crazed treasure-hunters--and each other. Along the way, Joan discovers she's tougher than she ever thought, tough enough to rescue her sister, and tough enough to fall in love with the troublesome Jack.
THE JEWEL OF THE NILE: In this sequel to ROMANCING THE STONE, Joan is kidnapped by a handsome Arab political leader, and it's up to Jack to rescue her. His efforts are further complicated by the fact that he is also being pursued by an angry former partner.

Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set video Sixteen-year-old Finn Earl (Anton Yelchin) is supposed to spend the summer in the Amazon, helping his anthropologist father, whom he's never met, study the (fictional) Ishkanani tribe. But instead of getting a passport, he gets busted for buying coke for his addict mother, Liz (Diane Lane), and takes the rap himself. So Finn goes off on a very different kind of adventure instead: spending the summer at the massive New Jersey estate of the wealthy and powerful Ogden C. Osborne (Donald Sutherland), one of his mother's massage clients. While his mother fights to remain sober there, Finn falls in with Osborne's spoiled-rotten grandchildren, including Bryce (Chris Evans) and Maya (Kristen Stewart); the latter takes an immediate romantic interest in him. Despite the fun Finn's having--getting involved in drinking, smoking pot, and experimenting for the first time with sex--he identifies more with the maid, Jilly (Paz de la Huerta), than with the rich kids. And when he gets taken under Osborne's wing, danger lurks as family secrets start rising to the surface. Griffin Dunne directs FIERCE PEOPLE with a firm hand, mixing in scenes from Finn's father's documentaries that evoke what is happening within the Osborne tribe itself. The ensemble cast also includes Elizabeth Perkins as Osborne's snobby daughter, Christopher Shyer as a doctor who quickly develops a thing for Liz, and Garry Chalk as the blowhard McCallum. Based on the book by Dirk Wittenborn, who also wrote the screenplay and appears in the film as Fox Blanchard, FIERCE PEOPLE is a bittersweet look at classism in the United States, set in 1980 but relevant to the separation between the rich and the poor in any era.
Contrasting the mores of high society with the blunt savagery of primitive tribes, this film takes an inside look at the upper classes, examining the darkness that lurks beneath the surface of good manners. Sporting a biting wit, and featuring charismatic performances from Diane Lane and Donald Sutherland, this unflinching drama exposes the trappings of wealth and privilege, and their overwhelming power to both seduce and corrupt.
|Nanny Diaries DVD (2007)
Charlie Chaplin - 8 DVD Set film Loosely based on the bestselling roman à clef by Emma Mclaughlin and Nicola Kraus, THE NANNY DIARIES is the story of Annie Braddock (Scarlett Johansson), a fresh-out-of-college Jersey girl who is uncertain of her future. Annie's mother (Donna Murphy) is pressuring her to take a job in business, but Annie has more interest in anthropology. After blowing her first interview with a New York financial firm, Annie heads to Central Park to mull over her options. As fate would have it, it's there that she meets Mrs. X (Laura Linney), a wealthy mother from the Upper East Side. Mrs. X happens to witness a warm interaction between Annie and her son Grayer (Nicholas Art), and mistakenly assumes Annie is a nanny. She immediately offers Annie a job, and despite the warnings of her best friend, Linette (Alicia Keys), Annie takes it. She decides to approach the job like an anthropologist in the field, and she is alternately fascinated and appalled by her observations. Despite their luxurious lifestyle, the Xs are revealed to be a truly dysfunctional mess. Annie quickly learns that money might indeed buy you a house on Nantucket, but it certainly can't buy you an honest husband or the affection of your son.
Linney is excellent as the ice-cold Mrs. X, and Paul Giamatti delivers a perfectly smarmy performance as the philandering Mr. X. The film has a great time poking fun at the absurdity and hypocrisy of Manhattan's upper-crust, and it's at its funniest when relying on the sharp observations of its source material. It's surprisingly fanciful in places, with quick nods to MARY POPPINS and its very amusing use of the Natural History Museum. A sort of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA with a fantastical edge, THE NANNY DIARIES is a satisfying slice of cinematic schadenfreude.
Scarlett Johansson, Laura Linney, Paul Giamatti, Chris Evans, and Alicia Keys star in this romantic comedy.
