(VINE VOICE)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 50 REVIEWER)   
 
The Indian Runner [DVD] [1991]
1.  The Indian Runner [DVD] [1991] DVD ~ David Morse
The list author says:
  "Yet another great Sean Penn movie (directed). Viggo Mortensen, David Morse, Dennis Hopper are all brilliant, but topped by a career-best from Charles Bronson. Idea from a Springsteen Nebraska song."
19.99   Used & New from: 9.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

Moonlight Mile [DVD] [2003]
2.  Moonlight Mile [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Jake Gyllenhaal
The list author says:
  "Superbly observed small-town America. Hoffman and Sarandon are achingly good as the bereaved parents and Gyllenhaal as the left-behind confused boyfriend of their loved and lost daughter."
4.00   Used & New from: 1.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Life Or Something Like It [DVD] [2003]
3.  Life Or Something Like It [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Angelina Jolie
The list author says:
  "TV Girl Jolie is told by a mad street prophet that she's a week to live. When his predictions for the next few days start coming true, she starts worrying. Clever and fun."
3.28   Used & New from: 0.10
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Life As A House [DVD] [2002]
4.  Life As A House [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Hayden Christensen
The list author says:
  "Kline makes beautiful models of homes in his hated architect job, but never constructs one. He quits, then builds and his dys-family reacts. Scott Thomas and Christensen have superb unfolding parts."
2.76   Used & New from: 1.17
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Tao Of Steve [DVD] [2001]
5.  The Tao Of Steve [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Donal Logue
The list author says:
  "A hip, smart-arsed, wordy and well-cool movie. Smug Steve has advice for his nerdy men friends about women, but then screws up when the real thing arrives in the most unlikely form for himself."
3.42   Used & New from: 1.12
3.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

My Name Is Joe [DVD] [1998]
6.  My Name Is Joe [DVD] [1998] DVD ~ Peter Mullan
The list author says:
  "Both Peter Mullen and Louise Goodall are fantastic in this heart-breaking and elevating Glasgow story. Goodall should have been oscar nominated. Absolutely @@@@ing love this!"

Hearts In Atlantis [DVD] [2002]
7.  Hearts In Atlantis [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Anthony Hopkins
The list author says:
  "A Stephen King story, Hopkins comes into and changes the life of a young lad. Tony has prediction powers the bad commy-obsessed powers-that-be want. David Morse has a touching part. Good film."
19.46   Used & New from: 0.90
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Good Thief [DVD]
8.  The Good Thief [DVD] DVD ~ Nick Nolte
The list author says:
  "A set-in-France Ocean's Eleven card-gambling caper movie. Nolte is superb as the drunk hustler trying to score a clean break while the cop Tchely Karyo gives chase. A Neil Jordan film."
2.99   Used & New from: 0.98
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Flesh And Bone [DVD]
9.  Flesh And Bone [DVD] DVD ~ Dennis Quaid
The list author says:
  "Meg Ryan stopped being cute for this film, ably supported by Dennis Quaid and James Caan. A good film on small-town middle America."
Used & New from: 3.68

Mighty [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
10.  Mighty [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Kieran Culkin
The list author says:
  "The small one is the brains, the big guy is the muscle - together they are The Mighty - in this gorgeous little-guys-stand-up-to-the-bullies film. Full of heart and top actors giving touching cameos."
9.36   Used & New from: 0.98
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

One Night Stand [DVD] [1997]
11.  One Night Stand [DVD] [1997] DVD ~ Wesley Snipes
The list author says:
  "Snipes and Kinsky are fantastic in this marital infidelity film which rarely if ever mentions colour or nationality. When tackling serious roles, Snipes is a great actor."
12.99   Used & New from: 1.65
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Gloria [DVD] [1999]
12.  Gloria [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Sharon Stone
The list author says:
  "All too often written off by critics as just eye-candy, Sharon Stone is superb in this woman-must-protect-a-vulnerable-child gangster film. Violent in places, but with ballsy characters you root for."
2.24   Used & New from: 0.01
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

When Brendan Met Trudy [DVD] [2001]
13.  When Brendan Met Trudy [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Peter McDonald
The list author says:
  "Saw this in a West End cinema with 4 in the audience! Flora Montgomery should have been a star after this quirky Dublin film. A Nerd/Choir Singer dates a Sassy Burglar. Very funny, very Roddy Doyle."
5.07   Used & New from: 1.04
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Narc [DVD] [2003]
14.  Narc [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Movie
The list author says:
  "In the same vein as Training Day, Narc is even more grittily realistic. Starring the ever powerful Ray Liotta, the opening 15 minutes are just stunning."
2.43   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

City By The Sea [DVD] [2002]
15.  City By The Sea [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Robert De Niro
The list author says:
  "De Niro plays a New York cop whose James Dean lookalike son (James Franco) is accused of a murder he didn't commit. You forget how good Bobby is and stuff like this reminds you."
2.10   Used & New from: 0.10
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

A Simple Twist Of Fate [DVD] [1995]
16.  A Simple Twist Of Fate [DVD] [1995] DVD ~ Steve Martin
The list author says:
  "Steve Martin is a gold-coin-collecting-miser and loner. A girl by a local junkie mum turns up at his home in the snow. Gabriel Byrne, local politician and money, wants his daughter back. Legal ensues."
3.57   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

The Straight Story [DVD] [1999]
17.  The Straight Story [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Richard Farnsworth
The list author says:
  "Slow and boring or majesterial and eloquent - opinion is divided on this. While Spacek shines, it's Richard Farnsworth who is quietly magnificent in his last role as Lynch's film lawnmowers along."
10.00   Used & New from: 0.46
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (85 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Frida [DVD] [2003]
18.  Frida [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Salma Hayek
The list author says:
  "Frida Kahlo's crazy/tragic/heroic life is superbly portrayed by Salma Hayek. And Alfred Molina is brilliant as her politically active but sexually wandering husband. Great movie about a unique artist."
6.12   Used & New from: 1.47
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (58 customer reviews)

There's Only One Jimmy Grimble [DVD] [2000]
19.  There's Only One Jimmy Grimble [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Lewis McKenzie
The list author says:
  "There's been loads of football-as-saviour movies, but this little gem was overlooked. Winstone and Carlyle add their charisma - it has heart as a movie - it rocks."
4.25   Used & New from: 1.34
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (26 customer reviews)

Living Out Loud [DVD] [1999]
20.  Living Out Loud [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Holly Hunter
The list author says:
  "Queen Latifah's nightclub singer is the object of desire for Holly Hunter's bored apartment uptown lady. Devito, doorman and lowly lift operator fancies Hunter. An intelligent movie. A goodie."
Used & New from: 0.90

One Night At Mccool's [DVD] [2001]
21.  One Night At Mccool's [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Liv Tyler
The list author says:
  "There's an apeing of the car-wash scene in Cool Hand Luke in this film with Liv Tyler doing things with soap suds that shouldn't be allowed. Clever, funny, and cool as @@@k."
2.65   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Magnolia (2 Disc Box Set) [1999] [DVD]
22.  Magnolia (2 Disc Box Set) [1999] [DVD] DVD ~ Tom Cruise
The list author says:
  "Any illusions critics have that Cruise is just a pretty face are quickly washed away by his career best performance in the amazing Magnolia. And then it rains frogs - see this astonishing film!"
8.99   Used & New from: 0.29
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (141 customer reviews)

Nobody's Fool [DVD] [1994] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
23.  Nobody's Fool [DVD] [1994] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] DVD ~ Paul Newman
The list author says:
  "Paul Newman is outstanding as the father in this lovely movie. Watching him eat the screen up makes you realise what a lifetime class act he's been."
19.95   Used & New from: 7.62
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Possession [DVD] [2002]
24.  Possession [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Trevor Eve
The list author says:
  "Bryatt's novel is beloved and four-strong leads do it justice. Eckhart and Paltrow are a pretty but hung-up modern day couple while Ehle and Northam are old Victorian poetic romance. Sloppy but nice!"
12.99   Used & New from: 0.23
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

About Adam [2001] [DVD]
25.  About Adam [2001] [DVD] DVD ~ Stuart Townsend
The list author says:
  "Kate Hudson was a rising star when this cunning-Dublin-lad-gets-his-wicked-way-with-four-different-women film was made. Great cast, funny and touching. Stuart Townshend is the naughty boy."
