There are a number of mind bending movies on amazon prime. Some of our favorites include The Prestige, The Machinist, and The Village. These movies all have elements that will leave you questioning reality and wondering what is really going on.
If you are looking for a good mindbending movie to watch on amazon prime, we highly recommend checking out one of these three.
A wild ride inside the mind of a serial killer, THE CELL is a movie that leads viewers on a strange visual and psychological journey. Catherine Deane (Jennifer Lopez) is a child therapist working on an experimental new technology that allows for direct access into someone else’s mind.
However, the benefits of the technology are still unproven. Meanwhile FBI Agent Peter Novak (Vince Vaughn) is hard at work tracking down a serial killer who encloses women in a small glass cell and drowns them.
Novak is able to identify the killer as Carl Stargher (Vincent D’Onofrio), but before he can be arrested, he goes into a coma. The only way to rescue his most recent victim is for Catherine to enter his mind using the experimental technology.
However, Stargher’s mind is so warped and frightening, there’s no way to know what Deane will encounter inside of it. THE CELL is the feature film debut of Tarsem Singh, a renowned commercial and video director who overloads his film with visual splendor and horror, while sticking to a simple story of innocence lost and innocent victims saved.
A must-see for fans of dark psychological thrillers, THE CELL features some controversial violence and sexual content along with amazing special effects. A chilling yet strangely elegant thriller, THE CELL is a stunning cinematic experience.
would give another half star if i could. Probably not for everyone but an interesting concept. Entering a serial killers mind to find a missing victim. It is a weird world but remember it is a serial killers mind.
There are very few films that Jennifer Lopez star in are good; this is one of them. The film has somewhat similar plot device of Inception where Lopez needs to find a missing person and the only way to do that is going into the killer’s mind.
Fifteen-year-old Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is so resentful of her baby brother Toby that she hopes he will just disappear. Her dream becomes reality when goblins kidnap the boy–but Sarah unexpectedly finds herself horrified by the loss.
So she sets forth to retrieve him, and finds herself on the adventure of a lifetime. To accomplish her task, she will somehow have to reach the center of the fantastical labyrinth where the wicked Goblin King (David Bowie, who performs two songs) has imprisoned the lad.
But the task is easier said than done, for the maze is filled with strange creatures and mind-bending puzzles that confuse the girl. Directed by Jim Henson and penned by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, LABYRINTH is a distinctive, beautifully designed dark fantasy for all ages.
I have been a lifelong David Bowie fan, but have resisted watching “Labyrinth” for the obvious reasons (Muppet movie, beneath his dignity, etc. ). I’m glad I’ve finally had the opportunity to see it in full after 30+ years.
It’s not his greatest performance, but the movie is definitely entertaining. Jennifer Connelly is a shining star.
This movie truly is a classic. When it had its theater run, it bombed but has gone on to become a cult classic. It is at its heart a tale of growing up. When a teenage girl wishes for the goblin king to come and take away her brother, he does so.
She must then navigate her way through a Labyrinth to reach the Castle and get him back. It is visually stunning. The musical numbers are very well down. David Bowie does a good job playing Jareth in a sinister and unique way.
The muppet characters are unique with names like Hoggle, Sir Didimyus, and Rudolf. It is a perfect family movie in that it teaches a lesson and entertains at the same time.
Nightmares and Dreamscapes from the stories of Stephen King Nightmares & Dreamscapes – This hair-raising miniseries is comprised of 8 mind-bending stories each featuring an all-star cast and cutting-edge special effects.
Each episode is adapted from one of Stephen King’s short stories.
Horrible experience These 3 discs came in a nice box , clean , cellophaned – couldn’t wait to watch 1st disc 1st movie went black 30 mins in ! 2nd movie wouldn’t play at all !! 3rd movie played fine 2nd disc 1st movie went black 20 mins in !! The discs are gold tint in color – I was told by a video store owner , that when a disc is “cleaned , buffed etc “ thru a professional machine -to remove scratches – it turns gold and is erased if it’s been cleaned/buffed too many times.
I believe these were buffed dvds repackaged n resold as NEW !! BEWARE.
Some big name stars in these short stories, like William Hurt, in a little story that reminded me of “trilogy of terror” where a small doll comes to life and hunts down a woman in her apartment. His enemies were small army men that were utilized with such special effects, I was impressed.
Widescreen format, that fills your 16×9 TV, with almost blu ray level quality clarity. The other stories all have good story lines and writing and equal production value. These are more similar to modern twilight zone episodes with a scary bend, but fun nonetheless.

The twelfth season of Criminal Minds shakes the FBIs Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) to its very core. Unforeseen threats lead to sudden changes on the team, beginning with the addition of Luke Alvez (Adam Rodriguez), whose fugitive tracking skills are put to the test on day one.
Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) returns from London to take over as the new Unit Chief, joined by Stephen Walker (Damon Gupton), a seasoned profiler in his own right. Back on the case are agents David Rossi (Joe Mantegna), Jennifer J.
J. Jareau (A. J. Cook), Dr. Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler), technical analyst Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness), and Dr. Tara Lewis (Aisha Tyler). As the BAU grows in numbers, their enemies only grow stronger.
This new team must learn to work together to stop the killers, psychopaths, masterminds, hackers, abductors and other dangerous perpetrators that await them in these 22 mind-blowing episodes.
Criminal Minds is one of my favorite shows. And though season 12 was entertaining, many of the episodes felt recycled and uninspired. One of the show’s draws has always been the interesting concept of diving into a criminal’s psyche.
Unfortunately it’s becoming more and more obvious that maintaining that interest is beginning to slip. Some episodes feel all too familiar while others are actually eye roll inducing. The acting is still strong though, which, for me, is why I keep coming back.
The bond between characters is strong because of the obvious bond between the actors. I’ll continue watching Criminal Minds as long as it’s on, but I am glad it will be ending fairly soon.
Criminal Minds is one of my favorite TV series and I’ve been watching it since the beginning. When season 12 started, it didn’t hold my attention and I ended up not watching weekly. I bought the DVDs because I had to add them to my collection.
I’m rewatching it now and am already enjoying it more. It starts off kind of slow but is picking up. I’m glad I’m giving it another chance. Not the best season and shouldn’t be watched as a starter season for new fans but is definitely worth it for diehards.
The writers and producers were able to create a good storyline and everything was able to blend in together. It does have a major twist and definitely one to watch. It arrived on time and the packaging was still in good shape.
A man being pursued by a murderer stumbles into a mysterious lab and accidentally travels back in time nearly an hour. Finding himself will be the first of a series of disasters of unforeseeable consequences.
I had no idea what this movie was about i heard it from a friend and said why not. it actually turned out pretty good. i don’t watch too many foreign films and was glad that it was dubbed in English.
it’s a good sci-fi time travel movie. it’s pretty original and that’s what i like about this movie. the acting is good, story is good. all in all it’s a good movie. this movie is cinematastic. if you have not seen this movie then i recommend you do.
until next time have a cinematastic day rating 5/5.
I bought this after reading that it was some sort of cult classic. Cultish? Yeah. Classic? Nah. One afternoon a childishly over-curious shlep spies what he believes to be female nakedness in his tree line.
His idle curiousness leads him into the lab of a neighboring scientist looking for someone to test his time travel device on. (REALLY!) Not giving much away to say that the experiment goes awry. Not because the machine doesn’t work, but because the traveler has an apparent IQ of 37.
A time travel movie that actually makes sense, that delivers on the premise, and has a touch of reality at the core. While this is the story of a man caught in trying to straighten out his life after a future self forces the present self to start the time travel shuffle, and the time covered is actually only hours– the way it is handled, it builds the story, and delivers on what appears to be stupid setups and shows them to actually be fully thought out plot points, just in a way you were not prepared for– this movie delivers better than most superblockbusters.
One warning note: It has what appears to be cheesy gratuitous nudity is actually the setup for a priceless twist inside a twist part of the plot that may take you a couple of hours to straighten out.
Well worth the ride, and much better than most movies in term of plot, acting, and delivered entertainment– But strange.
The sixth sense: hollywood superstar bruce willis brings a powerful presence to m. Night shyamalan’s critically acclaimed supernatural thriller. When dr. Malcolm crowe, a distinguished child psychologist, meets cole sear haley joel osment, a frightened and confused eight-year-old with a mysterious sixth sense, they make an astonishing discovery that will leave you breathless.
Night shyamalan comes the riveting story of one family in the middle of a mysterious and mind-blowing event. Graham hess mel gibson awakens to discover a 500-foot crop circle in his backyard. When similar signs begin to appear all over the world, graham readies his family for a frightening invasion from another world.
The village: the director who brought you some of the world’s greatest thrillers is back with another thought-provoking triumph crawling with surprises and frightening twists. An isolated, tight-knit community lives in mortal fear of an evil force inhibiting the forbidden forest just beyond their village.
With unforgettable performances by an all-star cast, the village is first-rate entertainment that will have you at the edge of your seat.
I enjoyed the movies in the triple pack. The sixth sense and the Village had jut a little twist in the end. Signs is a good movie for sifi nuts like me. Good entertainment, good price and arrived earlier than expected.
All three movies are great. I bought this to replace the ones I had already plus I had GC’s thru Best Buy that I need to use. Saves me space with i package instead of three considering I have 2000 movies on disc.
Shinji Ikari just woke up in his Eva unit fourteen years after starting the Third Impact. He hasn’t aged, but everything else has changed. That eart is in ruins. Rei is missing. The people he once protected treat him like a prisoner and threaten to kill him if he pilots another Eva.
When he escapes to the remains of NERV headquarters, Shinji meets piansit Kaworu, who is destined to be Shinji’s copilot in a new dual-cockpit Eva. As the boys bond, Nerv’s true mission begins to come into focus.
Lost in a labyrinth of deception, Shinji careens toward a mental breakdown that could bring about the end of humanity. Evangelion 3. 33 inch continues the groundbreaking rebuild with stunning robot battles and mind-bending revelations.
“Wat. ” Is the operative word the first time you watch 3. 33. As a preface, I’m going to TLDR this review to death. I will strive not to SPOIL things, but be advised that it’s impossible to talk about the franchise and not spoil things from the 1995 OVA series.
First off, Anno told us from the begging that the Rebuild was going to change midway through it’s four film release, and it does, wildly! Second of all, the first two films of the rebuild stick pretty close to the original’s storyline, which makes 3.
33 a new trope for directorial tangents. Nothing in 3. 33, aside from the inclusion of most cast members and about three or four plot devices remains the same from either the original broadcast or the 2 movies.
So if you loved End of Evangelion or the original show, you WILL be heartbroken with 3. 33. But don’t lose hope! This iteration of the rebuild is glorious. The action is over the top intricate detail after detail.
2/3’s of the movie are devoted to fight scenes. 2 freaking 3rds! The plot follows a similar pattern to what’s being attempted all along; Gendo is working under the guise of SEELE to implement the Human Instrumentality Project, Misato questions the aim of Nerv since surviving previous calamities, Shinji seeks to find himself in a world of despair, betrayal, manipulation and abandonment.
Those are as Eva as you can get and shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. It’s the storyline of 3. 33 that’s going to drift dramatically from canon. Pull-off the nostalgia goggles, realize that the original run was hampered by Anno’s depression and budgetary constraints, watch the film and wait patiently another four years for 4.
44’s conclusion to land before dismissing this entry in the rebuild. Picture is nearly flawless. With a few artifacts during one or two fight scenes involving polarizing colors, and a few micro-banding issues during some dim lit sequences, the visual portion of 3.
33 is mesmerizing. Blu-ray is the only way to watch this movie. Audio is a problem in this entry for several reasons. Normally my speakers are on 10-12 to hear dialogue. I had to turn the volume up to 23 to hear things clearly! There’s really quite moments during playback, especially concerning Shinji mulling his dilemmas over.
Then there’s explosive bombastic moments during outbursts and action. The result is a juggling of volume controls, something that the other two movies have an issue with as well. I’m hoping one day that anime will be coded with decent audio options for 2.
0 stereo AND 5. 1 surround, but not in this entry. The special features in this outing are poor. There’s 14 different trailers for the movie, there’s one decent featurette showing the production process of sketches, to rushes, to finalizations of the film.
Then there’s previews for other Funimation works. This is pretty standard, but they’re missing the voice actor narrations that we had in 2. 22! It would also be nice to see interviews with Anno, as he’s the visionary mastermind behind Neon Genesis Evangelion.
They did include something very nice with this entry, a small full color booklet showcasing the official artwork of the characters, evangelions, angels, weaponry, and other elements of the movie. Also, the cover jacket is a beautiful matte finish seafoam green cover that fits the disc cover and booklet quite nicely.
Finally, and this is why I give this movie a 3 stars, the controversy surrounding 3. 33. The movie premiered in Japan in November of 2012. It was released in North America on February 2nd, 2016. Read that again!!! This is beyond unacceptable.
It was milked in theatres at the end of 2013 of various anime conventions, so Funimation decided to halt it’s retail release. Then it was delayed a second time to dub the entry, slated for a 2014 release, which mysteriously stopped over night.
A third delay occurred when Funimation posted a message on their website stating that Studio Khara wanted to redub the entry so that it followed more closely to the original Japanese script. In the later part of 2015 we were told that the movie would release at the beginning of 2016, a full three and a half years from the original’s release AND after the holidays.
I’ve watched this movie backwards and forwards three times straight, along with scanning every possible inch of the special features and nowhere is there an formal apology by Funimation or any of the production studios for the constant delay of this movie! A similar event happened with End of Evangelion back in the early 2000’s but this is 2016! Entire series get released within three years! Inexcusable.
The movie is also 30 minutes shorter than the previous rebuilds and winds up giving us more questions than answers with the new storyline twists. So you have a movie that differs greatly from the canon of the series, has poor audio with great video, and took close to 4 years to release stateside for you could read this review.
3 out of 5 is generous, and if it wasn’t Evangelion it would be a 1. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to complete their Evangelion Rebuild collection, or anyone who wants to hang on for the wild ride that the rebuild of the series has set up.
I would avoid it like Plutonium for anyone who is a stringent lover of the originals, or anyone who hasn’t fallen in love with the newer styles of anime fanservice delivery, hates production postponements, or wants more bang for their buck.
(My star rating is a mix of my ratings for the packaging and the movie itself. Rating for packaging/release quality alone: 5/5. Rating for movie itself: 2/5. ) Before I get into my thoughts on the actual movie, let me describe the quality of the Blu Ray itself for anyone who has already seen it.
Overall, the packaging is great. It comes with a book full of concept art that’s cool to look at. As for the blu-ray itself, it has stellar picture and sound quality, it definitely preforms in that area.
The menu is also very cool. I haven’t checked out the special features yet, but overall this was a good release by Funimation (even if it did take forever for them to finally push it out). As far as my thoughts on the movie itself: I hated it.
I’m a big fan of the original Evangelion series and I really liked the first two rebuild movies, so I was looking forward to the third one where they’ll totally go off the rails with an original story that is totally different from the series.
And, man, was I disappointed. If you’re looking for closure to the shocking events of the second film, you won’t find them here. It plops you into a story that takes place years after the last movie, and on top of not explaining events from the last movie, it doesn’t even explain the events in this one! To make matters worse, all of the development that the characters went through in the last movie is totally revoked.
They all basically become two-dimensional side characters that don’t do much of anything. The plot of this movie was so confusing – and not in the good, stimulating way that the original series was confusing.
No, this confusion is just due to bad writing. This is one of the biggest disappointments of a movie I’ve ever watched. It’s confusing, contrived, dull, and ultimately lifeless. Unless you just want to own all the movies, I do not recommend buying it.
The 3rd movie of the ‘Rebuilt’ version of the Neon Genesis Evangelion TV series, this film is where the movies begin to really differentiate from the series. There are new characters, events happen in a different order or sometimes not at all.
This a MUST HAVE if you are a fan of everything Evangelion! The next movie 3. 0 1. 0 recently released in Japan and, with hope and a little luck, the US will hopefully see its release within a year to a year and a half; that will finish the movie series’ reimagined storyline!.
From the director of POLTERGEIST and the co-writer of 4 comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure of explosive action and pulse-pounding suspense! With mind-blowing special effects by Academy Award winner John Dykstra (1977 Best Visual Effects, STAR WARS), LIFEFORCE is a gripping mélange of genres that’s ‘so bizarre, it’s fascinating’ (Leonard Maltin)! a mission to investigate Halley’s Comet discovers an even stranger phenomenon: an alien spacecraft! Following a deadly confrontation, the aliens arrive on Earth, where their seductive leader begins a terrifying campaign to drain the life-force of everyone she encounters.
Her victims, in turn, continue the cycle, and soon the entire planet is in mortal danger. And when the mission’s sole survivor (Steve Rails back – THE STUNT MAN) sets out to destroy her, he comes face to face with the most charming – and horrifying – being he’s ever known.
Will he be able to destroy the lovely vampires or will he become yet another victim of her fatal charm?.
Great plot – sexy space vampires taking over humanity as a feeding ground— but in particular one gorgeous naked female- desperate to feed, yet leaves our protagonist alive. Did I mention that she is naked for virtually the entire movie? Yet somehow that is fitting, given the incredible atmosphere of foreboding this movie creates in the viewer.
A stellar cast that defies logic- what were they thinking you might wonder? These actors were and are not B-Movie by any stretch. The psychology that is explored behind the alien plot is also rather intriguing.
Couldn’t make this movie now and get it funded but the eighties ahhh- what a wonderful decade.
As a serious Sci-Fi fan for many decades I really like this 1985 film. it reminds me of Planet of the Vampires which is another favorite. For its time the special effects are very good and the storyboard and screen play bring surprise twists and turns throughout to the end.
There is some nudity that some might not want to see but it did not detract from my enjoyment of the Sci-Fi classic.
Only made it to the twenty minute mark. I could accept the dated special effects ( okay for 1981 ) but the wooden acting and the focus on a nude ( albeit attractive ) woman was gratuitous. I’m amazed that the producers ( Golan and Globus ) got Henry Mancini to score this ( with the London Symphony Orchestra no less ) turkey about space vampires.
Perhaps this film has nostalgia value for those who saw it when it came out; or maybe diehard horror buffs would appreciate it. Utter waste as far as I’m concerned.
Alec Baldwin stars with Penelope Ann Miller as the legendary crime-fighting superhero in “The wittiest action-adventure since Indiana Jones!” Donning his sweeping black cape and disguise, The Shadow takes on his most dangerous nemesis yet” the last descendant of the great Genghis Khan whose weapon of choice is an atomic bomb.
With the fate of humanity hanging in the balance, they square off for a spectacular battle in a dazzling mixture of mind-blowing special effects, humor and a dose of the macaber that will hold you spellbound!.
You dont have to be Ancient to enjoy this super hero, of a sort. Just a joy to watch. Look it up online for the storyline. Old radio broadcast character, brought to life, complete with old cars, high tech gadgets (keeping the times in mind), light humor, action, engaging sight, and sound.
I’ve watched this on DVD for years, and love it even more with updated sound. And HD quality.
Standard 90s action flick, paralleling the original OTR show, which of course takes the occasional flights of fancy, as this movie does. The Blur-ray version here leaves a lot to be desired: no bonus features at all, there is no film quality enhancements, no directors commentary, not even a fancy insert.
The Blu-ray version here is nothing more than a straight port of the original with a so-so menu and a blue box.
I have been waiting for the wide screen edition to come out on Blu-Ray for quite some time. I have this movie on Laser Disc which was released as a wide screen version many years ago – I guess I can put that away now.
The audio and video is excellent and, as you can tell, I am a fan of this movie. Captures the time in history when this was a radio super hero – and it doesn’t have the CGI and loud noise (that passes for music) that is in all of the super hero movies today.
THE ONE is based on the futuristic premise that there is more than one universe: there are many parallel universes, each of which contain a slightly different version of every person who has ever lived.
Yulaw (Jet Li) is a rogue agent from the Multiverse Bureau of Intelligence who has learned that, by traveling from one parallel universe to another and killing the alternate versions of himself, he gains his counterparts’s strength, speed and intelligence.
After killing one hundred and twenty-three parallel versions of himself, Yulaw has gained almost unstoppable power–and there is only one version of himself left, Gabriel Law (Jet Li), a Los Angeles cop.
Yulaw travels to the universe that houses his nemesis, followed by a pair of agents intent on stopping him from killing Gabe and either gaining near-Godlike powers, or destroying the fabric of all existence.
Gabe is confused to find himself being hunted and shot at by himself, but with the help of his wife, T. K. (Carla Gugino), and the Multiverse cops (Delroy Lindo and Jason Statham), Gabe engages Yulaw in a series of spectacular fights to become the One.
Glen Morgan and James Wong, creators of FINAL DESTINATION and several memorable episodes of THE X-FILES, direct this mind-bending martial-arts extravaganza.
What if there was a killer traveling through parallel worlds. and he looked just like you? This movie postulates what if there is more than one universe. And that all of these universes are held together by one single stream of energy and that energy is equally distributed to every living being in each universe and if one of these beings die, that energy is reallocated equally to each other surviving member.
And with each allocation, a person becomes stronger. Now one universe has master the ability of crossing into another universe, and a man named Shulaw who believes that if he can kill all of his counterparts, he will become invincible, but there are those who believe that it might have detrimental effects, so try and stop him.
Unfortunately, he just has one more person to kill, Gabe Law, but the officers follow Shulaw but Shulaw has committed some crimes and Gabe is accused and is wanted. But Gabe discovers that he has changed and only wants to kill Shulaw not realizing what could happen.
Overall a great dvd to add to any collection and a must have for the hardcore physics geeks.
I’m not sure how to make a recommendation for this item. I’m a Carla Gugino fan and that’s the search I used to find item. The premise is at least to my mind a bit preposterous but is reasonably entertaining and for other Carla Gugino fans it’s well worth adding to your collection.
On Blu-ray for the first time ever, this digitally remastered edition of Who Framed Roger Rabbit practically jumps off the screen with its brilliant picture, rich sound and dangerous curves. Its 1947 Hollywood, and Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins), a down-on-his-luck detective, is hired to find proof that Marvin Acme, gag factory mogul and owner of Toontown, is playing hanky-panky with femme fatale Jessica Rabbit, wife of Maroon Cartoon superstar, Roger Rabbit.
When Acme is found murdered, all fingers point to Roger, who begs the Toon-hating Valiant to find the real evildoer. Complete with hours of bonus features including three digitally restored Roger Rabbit shorts, this multi Oscar winner (best film editing, best sound effects editing, best visual effects, special achievement in animation direction, 1988) is pure magic in hi-def Blu-ray.
The 25th anniversary edition of Who Framed Roger Rabbit is a two-disc blu-ray/dvd combo with different features on each. The blu-ray disc has a commentary that explains in detail the challenge in making this movie syncing animation and live action with a story line that was more than just a funny exercise.
Steven Spielberg insisted that a strong plot with urgency had to drive the film, and the writers found a real incident that also meant life or death to the toons, as the cartoon characters in Roger Rabbit are called.
The director, Robert Zemeckis, had two financial flops before he did RR, so this $70 million live-action cartoon might have sunk his Hollywood career for good, had it failed. Happily, it was a box-office smash and still holds up 25 years later.
Roger Rabbit is the first cartoon noir film, combining a murder mystery that involves animated characters, human beings, and a well-blended mix of humor and pathos. The late, great Bob Hoskins really made this movie work, playing alcoholic detective Eddie Valiant, whose partnership with his brother ended tragically when a toon dropped a piano on his brother’s head.
Other cast members include Stubby Kaye, Joanna Moore, Christopher Lloyd, and the voices of Charlie Fleischer as Roger, Kathleen Turner as Jessica, and the iconic Mel Blanc doing some of his classic characters.
Mae Questal does the voice of Betty Boop, which she made famous in the 1930s, and June Foray also adds another role to her literally hundreds of audio achievements. (She was most memorable as Rocky the Flying Squirrel.
) After you see the movie, watch it again with the commentary. Numerous plot changes occurred during the production; you can watch a cut clip of Bob Hoskins with a cartoon pig head. Don’t skip seeing the dvd, devoid of commentary but containing pop-ups on the side of the screen, acting as footnotes to elaborate on dialogue.
For example, a producer asks Bob Hoskins what he knows about show business. Hoskins replies, “Only that it’s like no business I know. ” The pop-up explains the reference to the hit show tune, “There’s No Business Like Show Business.
” One more reason to grab up this special edition is the price. Best Buy has or had it for under $7. It originally listed for much more and will probably show up on eBay for a Benjamin once copies disappear.
Kids loved this movie, but it’s intelligent and entertaining for adults as well. Just as in the golden age of animated short cartoons, Roger Rabbit contains jokes that will go over the heads of the youngsters, while their folks will chuckle at the double-entendres.
(The Disney Channel cut a few of the “risqué” remarks when the movie first aired on TV. ).
Saw this in the theater when I was 14 back in the 80s. Its a fun film and at the time was very cutting edge with technology of seamlessly combining live action with animation. It looks great on bluray.
Picture is crisp with vivid color and audio is fantastic. I had it for many years on VHS and I found it at a great price on bluray at my local Best Buy. Other great 80s films I would recommend getting on bluray/dvd are: ET, Gremlins & Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
I bought this Blu-Ray at a great price( $5. 99) and it is a good investment. The picture is bright and very clear. Colors are good and saturated. shadows and black levels are very good and you see slight grain so you still get that film quality.
5. 1 sound track is clear and punchy. bass is good. I watched on a 100 inch projector and was reminded of theater presentation.
Dracula dead and loving it dvdcomedy another spoof from the mind of mel brooks. This time he’s out to poke fun at the dracula myth. Basically, he took bram stoker’s dracula, gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it.
A Very funny movie. It is your typical Dragula story, but it is made fun. I wouldn’t recommend it for children. If you are a Leslie Nielsen and Mel Brooks fan, then this is perfect for you. Beware though, there is a ton of blood in here.
I love Mel Brooks, I love Leslie Nelson. So you would think that the two of them together would be amazing. but no. This is the only Mel Brooks film I would out right call bad. In fact most people I know do their best to forget it ever happened, stating the last original Brooks film was Robin Hood Men in Tights.
Its like someone else wrote the script then Brooks just slapped his name on it. None of the jokes hit home, the actors who are all normally amazing give bland performances and just over all lacks all of the wit and charm you would expect from a Brooks film.
This is a wonderful parody of the most famous Dracula films. It may not be of the classic one-of-the-funniest-films-ever-made status that is so well earned by Young Frankenstein, but it is a film you should enjoy time and time again.
Leslie Nielson makes a marvelous Dracula and Peter MacNichol is inspired as the insane insect-gulping Renfield. In one of the best moments in the film, MacNichol snatches insects out of the air and off the ground as an incredulous Harvey Korman, as Dr.
Seward, slowly catches on. Scenes that are authentic to the 1931 original, such as the usherette at the opera, are hysterical–and may not be fully appreciated if one has not recently viewed the original film.
Brooks himself is funny as Van Helsing and Steven Weber is very funny as Jonathan Harker–who is visibly dismayed as the women in his life make the transition from civilized British damsels to sexy, passion-filled Vamps.
Finally, the women in this film are sexy. Although the scene only last a minute, Dracula’s ample-breasted brides in Transylvania ooze sensuality as they attempt to lunch on the unsuspecting Renfield: You may never think of polishing furniture the same way again.
And Lysette Anthony gives simply one of the sexiest performances I’ve ever seen as Lucy, both before and after she is victimized by Dracula. All in all, a highly enjoyable, and actually fairly effective rendition of the Dracula legend in stupendous color.
This film has been under-rated: don’t deny yourself a very good time if you are a Brooks fan or a Vampire fan.
Digital copies not included. Video in good condition, guaranteed to play like new. Blu-ray Hi-Def and enhanced audio bring new chilling suspense to acclaimed filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan’s THE SIXTH SENSE, one of the greatest psychological thrillers of all time! When Dr.
Malcolm Crowe (Hollywood superstar Bruce Willis), a distinguished child psychologist, meets Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment), a frightened and confused eight-year-old, Dr. Crow is completely unprepared to learn what truly haunts young Cole.
As the depth of Cole’s incredible sixth sense is discovered, both Dr. Crowe and Cole are led into intense and mysterious encounters that will have unforgettable consequences.
M. Night Shyamalan’s debut film is arguably his best. A spine-tingling ghost story about a misunderstood ten year-old. Cole is bullied by his peers and thought to be emotionally troubled. A child psychologist takes on his case a year after a tragic shooting in his home appears to have taken his life.
The psychologist try’s to help Cole who is harboring a dark secret. Cole is seeing dead people for most of his young life.
I loved this movie when I was young. I picked it up at a mix and match sale, I just couldn’t resist. I wasn’t sure if I would still enjoy it after all these years but I did! Definitely recommend, especially for Halloween.
I’m sorry to admit that even after years of viewing this movie, it still terrifies me and I consider it the greatest thing Shyamalan has ever done. While following the typical ghost story, “The Sixth Sense” is able to achieve true emotional impact as heart is put into the tale.
The directing is brilliant and Haley Joel Osment will always be known for his role in one of the scariest movies I have ever seen. Among the best ghost stories ever told, The Sixth Sense succeeds mightily as a horror movie, a relationship drama, and a spiritual thriller.
In arguably his best role, Bruce Willis plays Dr. Malcolm Crowe, a dedicated psychologist still haunted by his inability to help a disturbed patient who later took his own life. Years later, he’s in for the challenge of his career when he meets a deeply frightened and disturbed little boy named Cole (Haley Joel Osment, in an award-worthy vituoso performance) who seems at first to be plagued by the same kind of mental problems that hounded Crowe’s former (later suicidal) patient.
Part of his determination to help Cole is to try and redeem himself for what he perceives as his failure in the other case, but most of it is that he just puts his all into it for every case, and Willis is great at projecting the compassion and fear he feels for his new young patient who continues to spiral deeper, while Osment is just magnificent as a lovable little child who’s scared out of his wits by forces beyond his understanding, and not knowing who to trust, or who’s ever going to believe him.
Both actors elicit tremendous empathy for their characters, and the supporting cast shines pretty brightly too. The doctor bit by bit learns more about the nature of the boy’s delusions, carefully prying little hints and pieces of information out of his scared charge without forcing it and driving him deeper into his shell.
But Dr. Crowe may be in for far more than he ever bargained for, as he begins – almost against his will – to have to consider the fact that Cole’s fears may not be delusions at all. The scene in which Cole finally confides the truth of what he ‘sees’ with his special sense to the doctor is an absolute classic.
As Crowe tries to help him – and tries to figure out exactly where he stands on what he’s beginning to suspect (which is everything his training has told him not to put stock into), Cole begins to sense a purpose behind his experiences and begins trying to understand what’s behind the whole phenomenon, and what his ‘role’ in it is.
I can’t highly recommend this enough. don’t take my word you must see this for yourself, on perfect everything looks on Blu Ray. every minute is worth your time. seeing as this is one of the greatest movies of all time.
When a writing assignment lands journalist Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and sidekick Dr. Gonzo (Benicio Del Toro) in Las Vegas, they decide to make it the ultimate business trip. But before long, business is forgotten and trip has become the key word.
Fueled by a suitcase full of mind-bending pharmaceuticals, Duke and Gonzo set off on a fast and furious ride through nonstop neon, surreal surroundings and a crew of the craziest characters ever (including cameo appearances by Cameron Diaz, Christina Ricci, Gary Busey and many others).
But no matter where misadventure leads them, Duke and Gonzo discover that sometimes going too far is the only way to go. Capturing the insane madness of Hunter S. Thompson’s literary classic was the challenge that director Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys) openly embraced.
Critics hailed it as: “Mindblowing. Bizarre. Outrageous. Wild. ” Buy the ticket. Take the ride!.
“We can’t stop here, this is bat country!” I can probably quote this entire movie and never gets old! I take the dry sense of humor through-out this movie and apply it to my life. The acting is superb from both an unpredictable Johnny and back then a very chubby Benicio.
I’ve problably seen this movie 36 times and the first ten times viewing it, I had always got something new from each time that really caught my attention. A must see but more importantly, a must buy!.
This is a great movie but you might have to watch it several times before you understand it. Depp’s narrative quotes are actually very good. So if you’ve just been thinking of buying this movie just get it.
Louis C. K. plays Max, a terrier that lives an easy life in New York City. But his world is upended when his owner adopts Duke, a gigantic, rowdy dog. Afraid that his owner will love the newcomer more, Max sets out to get rid of Duke – but soon finds himself lost in the city with his new housemate.
Before long, the two dogs are trapped in the pound, surrounded by feral pets, strays, and other unwanted animals. Led by a bunny named Snowball, the strays are revolutionaries that are planning to take down pet owners.
Meanwhile, Max’s friends set out to find him and bring him home. An always charming and exciting movie, The Secret Life of Pets will enchant kids and grown-ups alike.
“The Secret Life of Pets” is such a cute and fun movie! This movie isn’t just for children either, anyone can enjoy it no matter what your age is. I saw this movie in the theatre, and I loved it so I decided to buy it.
The movie is about the pets and what they do when their owners are gone- it involves getting into a bunch of mischief. My favorite pet is Chloe the cat. I definitely recommend this movie!.
This is such a cute movie. I’m a dog lover at heart, so it was so great to see dogs in a human light, living just like humans do. I bet if my dogs could talk, they would have a lot to say, too! This was a thoroughly enjoyable movie.
The way these dogs talked and acted was exactly the way I thought they would. I was expecially surprised at Leonard, the poodle. I just can’t say enough about each character. They were all so very entertaining.
I have watched this movie over and over! It is absolutely excellent!.
I bought this secret life of pets movie for my 10 year olds birthday. She loved it and we watched it with my 2 and 4 year olds as well. We always wondered what our pets do while we are away and this movie had us laughing from beginning to end! Its a very entertaining adventure these pets go on and Max is the cutest dog with a cute personality.
We enjoyed watching how a pet would think, feel, and act when their owner leaves. They really couldnt have picked better characters and even myself as an adult loved watching this movie ! Im sure we will watch it again and again since its the only movie my 4 year old talks about now lol she thought the bunny was so funny.
Seriously it’s surprising that this movie isn’t Disney. I think it’s better than Frozen. One of the most beautiful and most inspiring tales of all time. The songs are great and light-hearted. While the story is not short of heartache in the beginning it ends with a happy ending.
Absolutely stunning one of my favorite childhood movies had to have it.
The item got to my house very fast and was in great shape. It had little to no dents in the case, and had absolutely no scratches on the DVD. It was a really fun movie to watch for a great price. I would definitely buy from this seller again! Thank You.
I love this movie. I have watched since I was a kid and still thoroughly enjoy it. I wish more people were aware of this movie. It may be old but it is one of the best family movies to ever have been made.
I enjoy this much more than Frozen and that was a interesting family movie.
Robot, attack! Robot, destroy! These commands launched a thousand sci-fi fantasies for budding fans of the genre, just as they brought Johnny Sokko’s Giant Robot into imminent battle action! Under the voice control of young Johnny Sokko, the massive, flying metal behemoth would bring his fiery breath, laser eyes, finger-launched missiles and, above all, his physical strength into battle with countless menacing monsters bent on destroying the Earth! br> This epic fantasy series from Toei Studios aired from 1967 to 1968 and garnered even more fans in after-school reruns throughout the 70s.
Collected here for the first time on DVD are all 26 episodes of explosive kaiju battles, nefarious alien takeover plots and mind-blowing heroics from jet-packed Johnny Sokko and his equally airborne friend and protector: Giant Robot!.
I used to love watching this campy tokusatsu tv series from Japan about Johnny Sokko a little Japanese boy and his pet robot! who was a member of a world police force called the Unicorns whos archenemies were the extraterrestrial baddies the Gargoyles led by Emperor Guillotine.
I would tune in and watch Johnnys robot that he jacked from the Gargoyles go on to kick some Gargoyle monster ass saving Japan and pissing off Emperor Guillotine in the process usually while the Unicorns and Gargoyles had gun fights as well.
Back when I was a kid in the early70s. Later I used to own some VHS copies of Johnny Sokko and his flying robot back in the late 80s that a friend of mine taped off his tv with his VCR unfortunately my then live-in girlfriend tossed them out.
Oh, well, there is always YouTube and streaming available and now I have dvd available too! While the special effects may be tacky and low budget but to the little kid in me, they were still pretty cool and amusing.
I still liked the campiness of the series. (sorry but CGI back in the 60s)I enjoy simple, silly fare as Johnny Sokko as well as Ultraman partially as nostalgia as well as entertainment and escape from these trying times.
If you are into vintage,campy, but fun Japanese tokusatsu entertainment, then Johnny Sokko and his flying robot is for you.
Great classic Japanese show, juvenile and silly but lots of fun and brings back childhood memories. It’s a Shame Shout Factory didn’t clean this up or put it out on blu ray. The episodes are blurry, scratched and generally look awful.
The series was shot on 16mm film but this is really bad, especially considering the ridiculous price this set is going for. The show: 5 out of 5. The video: 2 out of 5.
This was a children’s show in Japan dubbed into English. It is designed for children to be a hero like adults. Johnny is the only person to be able to control the Robot because he impressed his voice to the Robot.
Robots were very big in the 1960 and You can see where Power Rangers got it’s start. You can not watch these shows looking for flaws and enjoy them. Realize They were dun without CGI or The special effects like now.
Just enjoy it. Like you would the Original Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers. If you just want to tear it down you can not enjoy it’s charm.
Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday. The horror-comedy tells the story of young Max (Emjay Anthony), who turns his back on Christmas as his dysfunctional family comes together and comically clashes over the holidays.
When they accidentally unleash the wrath of Krampus-an ancient entity from European folklore-all hell breaks loose and beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own. Now, the fractured family is forced to unite if they hope to survive.
This movie starts out like NATIONAL LAMPOON’S CHRISTMAS VACATION and turns into a horror film. I haven’t seen a combination like this since GREMLINS. There is no gore, and the violence is either comic (people fighting evil gingerbread men) or happens offscreen (people are carried off by evil elves or sink into the snow; we don’t see what happens to them after that).
Although Krampus looks scary, most kids today won’t be traumatized by the storyline, which has a good message about family togetherness at Christmas. I especially liked the relationship between the little boy and his grandmother.
I expected this to be so much better than it was. It has some pretty good actors, the makeup wasn’t that great but it did the job, and the ending totally caught me off guard. It wasn’t horrible but I just expected it to be better.
It’s a good movie for bad kids at Christmas time 😉.
This collection of the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET movies includes Wes Craven’s original entry in the series as well as A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 2: FREDDY’S REVENGE – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: DREAM WARRIORS – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER – A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 5: THE DREAM CHILD – FREDDY’S DEAD: THE FINAL NIGHTMARE – and WES CRAVEN’S NEW NIGHTMARE as well as a wealth of extra features.
Very underrated horror film! Such an excellent and underappreciated sequel. This is the best Nightmare on Elm Street film. Much better than the overrated original. This is one of the few horror movies that have likable protagonists and characters who aren’t annoying and don’t make stupid decisions.
The “Dream Warriors” in this film are like a superhero team that remind me of the X-Men. The teenagers were pretty cool. It was great to see Nancy back in this threequel. I can’t believe she was a doctor.
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors is a very extremely imaginative film that is also surprisingly pretty emotional too which is rare for a horror movie. The acting in this movie was great, especially from the actress who played Nancy and the actress who played Kristin.
Imho the first movie is the only really good movie. Part B after the first movie is horrible! The rest are eh fair. I only continued to watch them because I never seen them before, but probably will put them on the shelve forever.
As a huge fan of ‘80s horror movies, the Nightmare on Elm Street films hold a special place that other franchises like Friday the 13th and Halloween don’t. NOE contains a perfect blend of over the top, gory kills with insane humor that will be more likely to leave you laughing than shrieking.
But that’s what makes these films so great! Best about this set is not only do you get every film in the franchise, but the huge amount of special features including an exclusive bonus disc for exclusive bonus content makes this set well worth the price for all Freddy fans.
Even if you haven’t seen these films, this is a great, affordable set to buy to fully experience the entire series in crystal clear Blu Ray.

I’m definitely an M. Night Shyamalan fan and I love the dual meaning behind the title. This is a must watch and worth revisiting if you’ve seen it before. I have this gem on my DVR enjoyed it for the hundredth time this morning.
This is one of my favorite quotes: “People break down into two groups. Then when they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more then luck, more then a coincidence. They see it as a sign.
Evidence that there is someone up there watching out for them. Group number two, sees it as just pure luck. A happy turn of chance. I’m sure that people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way.
For them, this situation is a 50-50. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they’re on their own. And that, fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there’s a whole lot of people in the group number one.
When they see those fourteen lights, they’re looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever’s going to happen, there’ll be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope. So what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you.
Are you the kind that sees signs, sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky. Or, look at the question this way. Is it possible, that there are no coincidences?” Signs (Vista Series) (dvd_video).
Say what you will about Mel Gibson but he’s such a phenomenal actor. This story goes a little bit deeper than just the Classic twist. Yeah it’s got aliens in it but if you are a person of faith it makes you think a little.
Joaquin Phoenix is such an amazing actor and the little girl in this movie is adorable. And it’s better than most Alien movies because it’s directed in such a way that makes you so nervous you don’t know if Up Is Down and left is right.
The plot is perfect and I’ve never seen an alien movie like this. But like I said it’s more than just an alien movie. Also I couldn’t sleep for a week after watching it and now I always leave a glass of water around just in case.
This is one of M. Night’s best movies. If you like movies about what lies beyond our planet, paranoia, and other mind-benders, this movie is great for you. M. Night shines with this movie and Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix are absolutely great in this film.
They play brothers who own a farmhouse and suddenly have their crops vandalized and they find out it’s not what they expected it to be. Great features.
