Standing in the Shadows of Motown [DVD] [2003]
1.  Standing in the Shadows of Motown [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Joe Hunter
The list author says:
  "The "Funk Brothers" are the Motown house band and this sensational concert/documentary makes you want to erect statues to these great unsung heroes of soul. In my top 20. Cannot recommend it enough."
4.50   Used & New from: 0.98
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Ellen Degeneres - Live [DVD]
2.  Ellen Degeneres - Live [DVD] DVD ~ Ellen DeGeneres
The list author says:
  "During audience participation at the end, a young lesbian tells Ellen of how she drew courage from her to come out - it's a beautiful moment and icing on the brilliant stand up that went before it."
16.99   Used & New from: 0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Mrs Henderson Presents [2005] [DVD]
3.  Mrs Henderson Presents [2005] [DVD] DVD ~ Judi Dench
The list author says:
  "Speaking of beautiful & inspirational women, Judy Dench is just fantastic in this, paired with the prickly but caring Hoskins. Check out her speech to her girls about not giving "a fiddler's f**k!"."
2.94   Used & New from: 0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (81 customer reviews)

The Motorcycle Diaries [DVD]
4.  The Motorcycle Diaries [DVD] DVD ~ Gael Garcia Bernal
The list author says:
  "Che Guevara's early years are explored in this discovering-your-path movie. When I asked her-indoors if it helped that Gael was soooo good looking, she giggled & returned her gaze to the screen. Hmmm!"
4.05   Used & New from: 0.01
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (87 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Down From The Mountain [DVD] [2001]
5.  Down From The Mountain [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Ralph Stanley
The list author says:
  "Dan Tyminski (guitarist in Alison Krauss' band) is just 1 of the treasures in this concert movie that followed on from the rediscovery of 'old timey' music in the Coens "O Brother, Where Art Thou?""
38.99   Used & New from: 7.49
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Cellular [DVD] [2004]
6.  Cellular [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Kim Basinger
The list author says:
  "Parents Macy & Basinger have their son kidnapped by bad-guy Jason Statham. Formulaic stuff for sure, but the story and the great cast elevate it into a first class thriller."
3.80   Used & New from: 0.24
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (48 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence [DVD] [1998]
7.  Martha, Meet Frank, Daniel and Laurence [DVD] [1998] DVD ~ Joseph Fiennes
The list author says:
  "Ray Winstone's revealing to Joseph Fiennes at the end of the movie about his 'real' profession is just one of many witty highlights in this hugely enjoyable British/American romcom. Very, very good."
5.65   Used & New from: 0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Chasing Amy [DVD] [1997]
8.  Chasing Amy [DVD] [1997] DVD ~ Ben Affleck
The list author says:
  "Ben Affleck is not convinced that Joey Lauren Adams' lesbian stance is entirely convincing; she, despite falling in love with him, has other ideas? Great grown-up stuff with characters you care about."
2.72   Used & New from: 0.10
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (60 customer reviews)

The Edge [DVD] [1998]
9.  The Edge [DVD] [1998] DVD ~ Anthony Hopkins
The list author says:
  "Boss and wannabe go out into the wilds, but get hunted by a bear instead of them hunting it. Hopkins and Baldwin are fantastic in this - equal to each other. An exciting & intelligent watch."
3.93   Used & New from: 0.84
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (50 customer reviews)

The River Wild [DVD] [1995]
10.  The River Wild [DVD] [1995] DVD ~ Meryl Streep
The list author says:
  "David Strathairn has to protect his wife Streep and family from bankrobbers (a brilliantly charming/cold Kevin Bacon) determined to get away, even if it means riding rapids. Beautifully filmed too."
4.96   Used & New from: 1.40
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (32 customer reviews)

After The Sunset [DVD]
11.  After The Sunset [DVD] DVD ~ Pierce Brosnan
The list author says:
  "Salma sexy, Pierce debonaire, Harrelson kooky & funny, Cheadle menacing - and the scenery! A hugely entertaining diamond-robbers-in-the-Carribbean movie. Liked it so much I bought it!"
5.00   Used & New from: 0.06
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

American Dreamz  [DVD]
12.  American Dreamz [DVD] DVD ~ Hugh Grant
The list author says:
  "The crass world of US TV talent shows and their ravenous need for ratings is taken on in this witty and sly movie. Grant & Moore, the creep and the creeper, are equally sick and contemptable!"
1.64   Used & New from: 0.01
3.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Stigmata [DVD] [2000]
13.  Stigmata [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Patricia Arquette
The list author says:
  "Gabriel Byrne is a sceptical priest sent by the Vatican to investigate/debunk stigmata and violent visions experienced by Arquette. But can he put at peace another voice speaking through her? Superb."
2.72   Used & New from: 0.10
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Panic Room - Special Edition [DVD] [2002]
14.  Panic Room - Special Edition [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Jodie Foster
The list author says:
  "A taut and gripping kidnapped-in-your-own-home thriller given a huge amount of extras in this awesome special edition. If you liked this, then check out Jodie's ballsy lead role in "Flightplan" too."
Used & New from: 0.10
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (64 customer reviews)

True Crime [1999] [DVD]
15.  True Crime [1999] [DVD] DVD ~ Clint Eastwood
The list author says:
  "Eastwood is investigating a man on death row & the less-than-watertight case against him. Apart from some truly dodgy scenes where young women fancy ancient Clint - a good film - strangely overlooked."
2.75   Used & New from: 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Dragonfly [DVD]
16.  Dragonfly [DVD] DVD ~ Kevin Costner
The list author says:
  "Costner gets messages from his dead wife that drag him and his doctor's ass to South America to find out what really happened to her tour bus? Other worldy and redemptive in the right kind of way."
4.50   Used & New from: 1.57
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Swingers  (Special Edition)  [DVD]
17.  Swingers (Special Edition) [DVD] DVD ~ Jon Favreau
The list author says:
  "There's a scene in "Swingers" where a can't-stop-himself Jon Favreau leaves messages on a girl's answerphone - it's so realistic, it'll make you squirm! "Made" is the excellent follow up."
Used & New from: 2.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Imposter [DVD]
18.  Imposter [DVD] DVD ~ Gary Sinise
The list author says:
  "In 2079 cities are like fortresses where everyone is suspected of being an alien. In fact their clones are now so good, they don't even know they're clones, nor do they know their explosive purpose."
Used & New from: 0.20

The Way of the Gun [DVD] [2000]
19.  The Way of the Gun [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Ryan Phillippe
The list author says:
  "They're all scum in this movie and God are they good at it! And then you have Bencio, who could make you believe there's humanity even in the worst, bottom drawer scuzzbag! Compelling like Leon."
2.88   Used & New from: 0.10
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

The Stepford Wives [DVD] [2004]
20.  The Stepford Wives [DVD] [2004] DVD ~ Nicole Kidman
The list author says:
  "Before the truly awful "Bewitched", Kidman made this clever remake of a 1975 social/sci-fi classic. Very funny in places and far better than I expected. Give it and those 'nice' ladies a chance!"
3.20   Used & New from: 0.10
3.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Double Whammy [DVD]
21.  Double Whammy [DVD] DVD ~ Denis Leary
The list author says:
  ""Dawg" is only ok as a Dennis Leary/Liz Hurley vehicle, but Double Whammy is much better. Loser cop regains life - gets girl - and there's a great script-in-progress gag running throughout it too."
18.99   Used & New from: 0.34
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Shipping News [DVD] [2002]
22.  The Shipping News [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Kevin Spacey
The list author says:
  "Spacey and daughter move to a remote Newfoundland fishing village; job, Julianne Moore & location change him. Like "Chocolat" & "The Cider House Rules", this gem is brought to life by a great cast."
7.90   Used & New from: 0.31
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy [DVD]
23.  Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy [DVD] DVD ~ Will Ferrell
The list author says:
  "Will Farrell - you either love him or hate him - either way, you'll be impressed by him in this irreverent and funny look at US newscasters and their hidden huge egos. Brilliant like early Coens."
3.80   Used & New from: 0.01
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (202 customer reviews)

3000 Miles To Graceland [DVD] [2001]
24.  3000 Miles To Graceland [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Kurt Russell
The list author says:
  "Costner may or may not be a genuine son of Elvis! Very violent in places (typically Woo), but there's something ballsy about it that keeps you glued. Big shoot out at the end is awesome."
6.87   Used & New from: 0.34
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

Deception [DVD] [2000]
25.  Deception [DVD] [2000] DVD ~ Ben Affleck
The list author says:
  "Called "Reindeer Games" on R1, Affleck & Theron constantly try to outwit Sinise and his gang in an armed robbery. But who's screwing who & who isn't really dead?"
8.25   Used & New from: 0.25
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)
