5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Jan. 2002
This is a great graphic novel (and I don't usually like graphic novels so that's saying something..) It really does the two characters justice. If these un-holy adventures are anything to go by, Joss Whedon should really consider letting Christopher Golden and James Marsters inside the writing room on the TV show itself. The stories are sick and brilliant.
Spike and Drusilla are two of the greatest character creations in recent memory.
Heartily recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Bless Jimmy Stewart, 16 Nov. 2001
This film always wins out in the opinion polls for 'Best Tearjerker' or 'Best Christmas Film', but never really gets the credit I think it deserves as a comedy classic. In my opinion it contains some of the most rip-snortingly hilarious lines and scenes in the history of cinema. A few of which are actually quite eyebrow-raising by the censorial standards of 1940's mainstream movies (I wouldn't be at all surprized if some of that gloriously witty and hilarious dialogue didn't have something to do with the uncredited script work by Dorothy Parker (among others..))
Jimmy Stewart is (of course) just as sweet, funny, genuine, and darling as ever. (What more can I really say about this man? It's all been said before. The guy had real CLASS. Sadly missed.)

Take my advice: Watch out for what Mary (Donna Reed) calls upstairs to her mother regarding what George (James Stewart) is doing in the house. If that isn't a great comedic line I honestly don't know what is. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of cinema, 16 Nov. 2001
This film is, more than anything else, proof of what a great actor River Phoenix truly was. The film itself is very interesting. While the subject matter may seem controversial, the touching and off-beat way in which it is handled by director/writer Gus Van Sant is never exploitive or offensive. It's the sort of film that you'd think could only have been made during that shining era of cinematic daring and innovation, the 1970's. I mean, I can picture it fitting in nicely on a double bill with 'Midnight Cowboy' or 'Taxi Driver' for example. It has that distinctive and independant nature. Surprizingly it's actually from 1991. Nevertheless, it's a fascinating and oddly romantic piece of work. Some scenes work better than others (as is the case with most movies, especially those of the so-called "art house" variety) but it's never anything less than totally unique and quietly touching. Plenty of interesting filmic, philosophical, and artistic ideas presented in an interesting and highly effective manner. There is no use questioning the fact that River Phoenix's intense and heartbreaking performance is the films centrepiece, but the film stands up very well even in the scenes he's not in. This is one of my favourite films of the 1990's and the one that I hope River Phoenix will long be lovingly remembered for.
