Mark Barry "Mark Barry"
 
Black Robe [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Black Robe [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Black Robe mines the same territory as Dances With Wolves and Last Of The Mohicans, but is unsentimental in its Frontier savagery. Compulsive and compelling like Leon, it's brutal but brilliant."
Music Box [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Music Box [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Jessica Lange is horrified to find that she has to defend her father (the superb Armin Meuller Stahl) of Nazi war attrocities. Surely such a nice man can't be guilty? Great story, great cast."
Soldier's Tale [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Soldier's Tale [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"In 1944 Normandy, soldier Gabriel Byrne wanders onto the farm of gorgeous but manless Marianne Basler. Resistance claims she is a traitor; he stays, but he can't protect her forever when he leaves..."
Shag: Movie [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Shag: Movie [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"The Shag is a US dance craze from the early 60's. Phoebe Cates, Bridget Fonda, Annabeth Gish, Page Hannah - they all shine in this lovely coming-of-age movie. Nerdy but nice."
Summer Fling [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Summer Fling [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Called The Last Of The High Kings in Ireland and the UK, this forgotten gem tells of 1977 Ireland and growing up for graduates in a sleepy town. Thin Lizzy music too. Warm and charming!"
Bob Roberts [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Bob Roberts [DVD] [1992] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Like The Player in its portrayal of Hollywood, Tim Robbins is superb as the ah-chucks politician. He puts up an all-too-believable front to the voters that he cares, a man of the people, but is he?"
For Roseanna [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
For Roseanna [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Jean Reno's beloved wife Ruehl is dying; their aging Italian town has only 3 plots left in the cemetery; his increasingly desperate but loving attempts to keep them empty fill up this gorgeous movie."
The End [DVD] [1978] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
The End [DVD] [1978] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"People forget what a huge star Burt Reynolds was (is). This great late 70's farce about a man who thinks he's not long for the mortal coil also stars the wonderful Dom DeLuise."
Brazil - Criterion Collection [DVD] [1985] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Brazil - Criterion Collection [DVD] [1985] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"It's available here as a single disc, but long before that paltry release, this 3DVD Criterion set has been an object of lust for collectors. A genius film given 5-star treatment. Expensive but a wow!"
Princess Caraboo [DVD] [1994] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Princess Caraboo [DVD] [1994] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"A crap print unfortunately, but a genuinely charming movie with a top ensemble cast. Kline and Cates met on this movie and subsequently married. It's easy to see why."
We're No Angels [DVD] [1990] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
We're No Angels [DVD] [1990] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Featuring heavy-hitter actors like De Niro and Penn acting the gorm in priest outfits and the actress everyone loves to hate, Demi Moore - it's easy to see why this was slated, but I like it!"
Paper Moon (1973) (Ws Sub Dol) [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Paper Moon (1973) (Ws Sub Dol) [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Bogdanovich directs Ryan and Tatum O'Neill (his daughter) in this 1930's depression era movie. Orphaned, Ryan finds the 9-year is foul-mouthed and smokes. Great fun and a charming movie."
High Spirits [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
High Spirits [DVD] [1988] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"A bit diddly-idle in it's Irishness, but a charmer nonetheless. Neil Jordan got slagged off for this, but Castle Plunkett tickles my funny bones. The sadly missed Donal McCann also starred."
Castle [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Castle [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Fab Australian flick about a man and his home and the powers that be trying to take it away from him and his family. They picked on the wrong brood!"
Rough Magic [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Rough Magic [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Bridget Fonda (possesser of magic) and Russell Crowe (effortlessly charming) exude sexual chemistry in this 1950s sassy overlooked gem. Jim Broadbent watches as Mexicans get turned into sausages!"
Made in America [DVD] [1993] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Made in America [DVD] [1993] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Slight and fluffy I know, but Danson and Goldberg make for a great comedy double-act in this my-black-daughter's-daddy-is-a-white-car-selling-moron tale. So enjoyable."
How to Murder Your Wife (Ws Dub Sub Dol) [DVD] [1965] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
How to Murder Your Wife (Ws Dub Sub Dol) [DVD] [1965] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Jack Lemmon plays a confirmed bachelor and cartoonist until the gorgeous Verna Lisi turns out to be his wife one hung-over morning. Terry Thomas as his butler is fabulous. So UnPC and so good!"
Around the World in 80 Days (1956) (2pc) (Ws) [DVD]
Around the World in 80 Days (1956) (2pc) (Ws) [DVD]
"David Niven is effortlessly suave and stiff-upper-lift in this '56 caper. The print is beautifully restored and the extras fascinating and complimentary."
Sherlock Holmes Collection, Vol. 1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Sherlock Holmes Collection, Vol. 1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"There's 3 volumes in the series - all fully restored 35mm prints. I baulked at the price at first, but bought one anyway. Wow! If you love old movies, you must have these."
Billy Wilder Collection [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Billy Wilder Collection [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Three masterpieces, Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17 and Sabrina. William Holden is superb in Sunset (nominated) but won the oscar for Stalag 17."
Lone Star [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Lone Star [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"John Sayles wrote and directed this cross-the-border Mexican murder mystery, and brilliant it is too."
Fairytale: A True Story [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Fairytale: A True Story [DVD] [1998] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Harvey Keitel as Houdini, Peter O'Toole as Sir Arthur Conon Doyle, this wonderful Icon Production (Mel Gibson's co) slipped through the net. Kids and adults alike will love its innocence and magic."
Stone Reader [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Stone Reader [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Documentary real life, a man publishs one Great American novel in 1971, then disappears into obscurity. Filmmaker seeks him out, finds him, gets rediscovered. The love/power of books."
World According to Garp [DVD] [1982] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
World According to Garp [DVD] [1982] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"John Irving books are always a blast to read, but don't always work on screen - this does. Williams is perfect casting with Glenn Close as his revolutionary nurse mum, John Lithgow as a crossdresser!"
The Secret of Roan Inish [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
The Secret of Roan Inish [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Overlooked little gem. Island life, the sea, seals, Celtic magic, children - it's a lovely stew. Another John Sayles classic."
