4-0 out of 5 stars Realistic Reincarnation Movie
A pretty difficult movie to come by, Reincarnation of Peter Proud is a gem of a movie. Having first seen it during its initial release in the early '70s, I had not seen it for 25 years. Upon tracking it down, and outbidding some other eager fans of the flick, I anxiously awaited its delivery. It did not disappoint. It had that weird aura about it which complemented the subject matter of the film: Reincarnation, obviously. The cinematography, musical score, and quality acting set this film apart and make it worth owning. It definitely captures a very unique style which you don't ordinarily see with today's films. If you like movies that will make you think about them long after you've seen them, then Reincarnation of Peter Proud is a good choice. Stars a pre-Superman Margot Kidder.

5-0 out of 5 stars Creepy and Unforgettable
I've loved this movie for a long time. Michael Sarrazin, Jennifer O'Neill and Margot Kidder are perfect in it. Sarrazin is terrific as Peter Proud, a college professor who is obsessed with the idea that he may have been reincarnated and lived another life in the past. His pursuit of the truth lead him into an involvement with the wife and daughter of his former self. Fascinating, well-acted, great musical score with creepy scenes involving Kidder (who plays a her character at both 24 and 50ish effectively) thrown in. O'Neill is charming as the daughter Proud tries to resist becoming involved with. Great chemistry between her and Sarrazin. Well-worth owning.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Time for the DVD!!!
This is a great, original movie from the early 70's and I think we've waited long enough into the DVD era thats it's time for us to see this one released on DVD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
I saw a watered down version of Peter Proud when it was released in India in 1976. Years later, I saw a pristine print on VHS. What an incredible film this is. Brilliantly directed by veteran J.Lee Thompson, this film sends shock waves down everyone's spine probably even today. Yes,it is high time that is released on DVD/ Casting is perfect. Michael Sarrazin & Jennifer O'Neal are excellent. Margot Kidder as the cold killer is frighteningly evil!Outstanding score by Jerry Goldsmith enhances the rather eerie proceedings. Screenplay is perfect making this film almost flawless.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Real Trip Down Memory Lane
I saw this film in the mid-seventies at a West Chester University campus film event. I was impressed immediately with the subject matter (Reincarnation) and spent the time riveted to my seat until it was over. As others have stated, you will not forget it once you see it. The reason that it has such power is that it focuses on what all of us would like to do, and that is discover who we were before! The film is about a man who consistently has dreams about living a previous life in the recent past. He discovers that his dreams have a basis in reality when he recognizes the town of his dreams presented in a documentary on television. A search begins and Peter Proud tracks down all the dream clues, discovers his previous identity, and the film builds in excitement as we know that he was a murder victim in the previous life. Eventually he locates his old home and finds out that his family is still around. He uses a clever way to introduce himself to his old family and several strange psychic-like feelings and habits of saying things, tapping on glasses, etc. begin to arouse the suspicion of the former wife that her husband has come back to haunt her due to her guilt or that Dr. Proud is up to some bid for blackmail because of what he knows. In an amazing scene, his ancestral mother in a nursing home spiritually recognizes her son in the embodiment of Peter Proud and the daughter chalks it up to dementia. Proud becomes romantically involved with his daughter and drives the former wife to re-commit the actions of murder again in the spirit of Deja Vu in a great climax to the film. The most interesting aspects of this film are Springfield Mass. scenery, a 1937 Cord convertible with hide-away headlights, the amount of women sexually involved with the character and the overall angles in the filming that promote the mysterious aspects of this work. A charming work from the 70's and though dated it still draws you into the plot. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars LONG HARD CLIMB
THE CORPORATE LADDER is a Playboy Channel movie, filled with pseudo-erotica and some beautiful women. John Anthony Denison (Crime Story) plays Matt, an up and coming advertising executive, on the brink of a major ad promotion contract with a jeans company. In steps his new assistant, Kathleen Kinmont, whose take charge attitude and imagination, win the deal for him. Of course, Kinmont has more than her career in mind: she wants Mark. Mark, of course, is married to lovely Talisa Soto, who is also pregnant. But lust wins over and Matt does engage in an affair with Kinmont. As in THE TEMP and FATAL ATTRACTION, this relationship can only be deadly---from the movie's opening sequence, we pretty much know who Kinmont really is.
Add seedy Ben Cross as Matt's associate/rival who coerces his women to have sex with him to "advance their careers" and the setup is constructed for the movie's obvious ending.
Cross' performance is so over the top; he has three scenes in his pool where the dialogue is exactly the same; only the third one elicits a different response from his victim.
The movie downplays morality in its own subtle ways; sure Dennison feels guilty for what he does but he's constantly tempted and ruled by his third leg. A friend of his (played by director Nick Longovella) tells him that he's gone through a divorce after telling his wife about his affair; he tells Denison not to tell the truth; his wife's better off not knowing.
The acting is good: Kinmont has the vulnerability and the venom to carry off her role; Denison is middle-aged studly and stoic; and it's nice to see Jennifer O'Neill again, even if she has little to do.
This is one of those almost erotic movies, that does sustain interest, and it is well done.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tastefully Sexy, Exciting, Engages Mind on Values!
The Corporate Ladder is one of the most interesting movies I have ever seen. The only thing that it lacks is some big name stars. It has just about everyhting you could want in a sexy exciting movie: Interesting characters, well played, tasteful and exciting love scenes, mystery, plot, intrigue.

On the "high mided" side, it presents the viewer with a moral question faced by so many. How to handle infidelity -- and if to tell the truth and "be honest," or if to lie but "protect the feelings" of the spouse.

This movie is about an executive on his way up the corporate ladder. He is married and has a family. He also has a very bright, beautiful, sensual co-worker. They work on projects together in synergy and, over time, a deep meaningful bond develops between them. They can hardly keep their work synergy from becoming a hot personal attraction -- leading to an incredible torrid love scene on top of his desk.

This movie not only entertains, it causes one to ponder. It not only excites, it presents morality. A wonderful experiece to watch if you are the type who likes all sides of you to be involves in the movie experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars visconti's last film -a gem!
This movie is perfect in every way.The cinematography is absolutely hypnotic.The performances are brilliantly subtle,yet powerful. It is an excellent study of passion,jealousy and desperation.Each scene is so multilayered,that upon repeated viewing it could never be boring. The musical score is a beautiful accompaniment,greatly adding to the feel of the movie.I highly recommend this movie to anyone,but I especially think of it being a great experience for anyone who is interested in increasing their knowledge of great filmakers like Luchino Visconti.

4-0 out of 5 stars A MELODRAMA WITH CLASS
A free adaptation of GABRIELE D'ANNUNZIO's novel , this is a terrific melodrama that will pleased mostly lovers of those turn of the century stories dealing with adultry.Slow moving it is ,but never boring and you guys will ravish at LAURA ANTONELLI's stunning figure.If you don't think that LAURA is beautiful then you must be blind.It's fun to see TULIO (GIANCARLO GIANNINI)go crazy when his wife is announcing him that she is pregnant from another man.The hypcrosy of bourgeois life is interestingly treated and that villa, plus the fashion of the time making all the women look their best.One truely wonderful love scene and finally let me say that i would like to see other movies like this.You guys watch out ,because your wife or girlfriend may ask you:am i as beautiful as LAURA?OK now you're in trouble.

A beautiful movie, as many others of Visconti. Devinitely a must-see for Italian movie lovers and for any serious movie lover in general.

3-0 out of 5 stars A MILDER "EYES WIDE SHUT"
I always enjoy it when someone tells me about a film maker who I should look out for. After learning about Visconti I took it upon myself to rent his films. And this is the first one I rented. The film is filled with lavish sets,wonderful cinematography, and great acting from each character. But Visconti on the other hand seems to be a director who doesn't seem to demand too much from his actors. His directing style seems very tenuous. He doesn't seem to take control of his actors. Which is a much different feeling I get when I watch Bergman or Kurosawa. All in all Visconti made a very interesting film. It may seem a bit slow,but carries your interest untill the end.

4-0 out of 5 stars An over-looked near classic
Strangely, few people seem to have watched this movie, the last in Visconti's stellar career. True, it comes only in a poorly dubbed version and the video transfer leaves much to be desired--there's much screen stretching and nauseau-inducing panning and scanning. That said, the movie itself is quite good. There's not much to say about the plot, as it is skimpy and, on the surface, rather trite. What it's best for is the lavish period detail and for Visconti's patented dramatic touches--few will forget the protagonist's torment as he looks down upon his wife's illegitimate child, or the final shot, in which a horrified woman flees the scene of an unexpected suicide as dawn breaks. Laura Antonelli, evidently a former adult film star, is superb as the spurned wife who's indiscretion sets the story in motion, and she is almost matched by, of all people, Jennifer O'Neill, who proves here that her big screen career in hack pictures was a tragic misuse of talent. While not nearly as gripping as "The Damned", this is a fine film in its own right, one that deserves a revival--and a decent screen transfer. ... Read more

Herman Raucher's autobiographical (or first person, anyway)coming-of-age tale is set, as the title suggests, among sand dunes and departing GIs. Hermie (Gary Grimes) and his two buddies Oscar (Jerry Hauser) and the nerdy Benjie (Oliver Conant) are spending the summer doing the things preadolescents do: hanging out, eating ice cream, stealing "dirty" books from their parents, and trying unsuccessfully to act manly around the gawky girls they take to the movies. Then Hermie spoils everything by really falling in love, this time with the adorable older woman Dorothy, played by Jennifer O'Neill. Dorothy's husband conveniently leaves for duty overseas, and then, even more conveniently, becomes one of those "we regret" telegrams. Dorothy, desperate for comfort and sweetness, turns to Hermie--and surely makes his summer. The setting and the date give this movie a double helping of nostalgia for anyone who was once an adolescent boy desperately trying to get rid of both his callowness and his virginity. But the slow pace and dreamy atmosphere, courtesy of Robert Mulligan's direction and Michael Legrand's famous score, may give it less appeal to anyone who is still in that situation. --Richard Farr ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Worthwhile Film
This movie was filmed in my hometown--Fort Bragg/Mendocino, California--during the summer of 1971 as I was about to enter my senior year of high school. At the time, 60's idealism was fast transforming into the cynicism that was the 70's, and movies in particular seemed to embrace this mood. But not this one. This is a rather poignant film about one lads journey into adulthood, set amid the beauty of the Mendocino Coast (although is supposed to be an island) and the early troubled days of the Second World War. I related to this film on several levels, being about the same age as the protagonists at the time, the son of a WWII veteran, and concerned I would be sent to war (Vietnam was still a reality). And I was in love with Jennifer O’Neill, too! I was lucky enough to witness some of the scenes as they were being filmed, the funny losing-ones-virginity-on-the-beach scene comes immediately to mind. Is this a great movie? No, Gary Grimes and Jerry Hauser were just mediocre young actors and pretty much disappeared off the face of the earth after this movie. But it is a good movie, driven by a wonderful script and superb cinematography. And an Oscar-winning soundtrack. I’ll definitely buy it, and so should you. A four-star film.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nine stars, please?
Damn, this is such a great movie, timeless, beautiful, heartbreaking, funny as all get out... It's got everything, including wonderful acting.
Semi-autobiographical, Summer of '42 is an elegiac coming-of-age tale set amid the sand dunes at a small coastal town. Hermie, the protagonist, is just a kid trying to figure out what it means to grow up, how to act around girls, how to lose his virginity (which requires, first, a condom, and gives rise to one of the movie's many hilarious scenes). Then the beautiful woman in one of the summer cottages receives a 'We regret to inform you' letter and seeks comfort in her grief with....Hermie.
Beautiful setting, beautiful drama, beautiful movie. Watch it with your teenage son, watch it alone, watch it with a life-long lover. It's a winner and will stand the test of time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Nine stars? You've got to be joking.
After reading all the rave reviews here, I expected to love this film. No such luck.

The Summer of '42 has its moments. The final love scene is beautifully done and the "making love" between Hermie and Dorothy is effectively contrasted with the "making out" between Oscy and Miriam.

But the script is stilted, and the acting is wooden. I could have forgiven stilted dialogue between Hermie and Dorothy as a sign of Hermie's nervousness and uncertainty, but the dialogue between the three boys also seemed completely unnatural. There are a few effective reaction shots of Gary Grimes (Hermie) that do a good job of letting us see his longing and innocence, but he destroys this effect each time he opens his mouth. I think it is no surprise that we have seen nothing of Gary Grimes since he grew up and lost his youthful beauty.

The voice-over narration and final letter seemed like cheap tricks. The gauzy atmospheric camera work was as cloying as the swelling strings. There were obvious continuity problems. For example, Hermie and Oscy have very short shadows when Hermie leaves his house to meet Dorothy, so it is clearly the middle of the day. But it is dusk when he arrives at the cabin, which makes no sense unless it is a six hour walk.

I'd suggest renting rather than buying. If you like romantic coming of age stories, the love scene will scratch that itch. Unfortunately, it comes after 90 minutes of terrible acting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Summer of '42 is a timeless, haunting love story........
It is the summer after Pearl Harbor. The world is at war, and America is sending her best, strongest and healthiest men to fight overseas. Meanwhile, those too young, old, or physically disabled to serve stay behind, as well as wives and sweethearts. Among these are Hermie, Oscy, and Benjie (Gary Grimes, Jerry Houser and Oliver Conant). Together, this "terrible trio" raids the Coast Guard station, frolics on the beach on Packett Island, and sneaks looks at "dirty pictures" from a medical book.

But even as the three friends goof around on lazy summer days, the war's effects will soon touch the more serious and sensitive 15-year-old Hermie. He finds himself falling in love with the beautiful Dorothy (Jennifer O'Neill), who is seven years older and married. He worships her from afar, enduring both his friends' merciless teasing and his own confusion about his feelings.

But when Dorothy's husband Pete goes overseas to enter the fray, Hermie befriends Dorothy, helping her with chores such as carrying her groceries to her house on the beach and placing boxes in the attic.

At the same time, the more rambunctious Oscy (and Hermie's best friend) is trying very hard to pick up girls and lose his virginity, and he makes it his mission in life to help Hermie do the same. So he copies information from a medical book that Benjie says "belongs to the house" where he spends the summer. Oscy also attempts to set up a date for the "terrible trio" at the movies, but that almost falls apart when Benjie and the third girl don't want to go. I don't want to give away what happens next, but it's pretty funny.

But the heart of the movie revolves, as many reviewers have said, around Hermie's love for Dorothy, and how he comes to manhood unexpectedly when Dorothy finds out that her husband has been killed in action. It's a beautiful, discreet and bittersweet sequence, and will leave the viewer with indelible memories of a haunting, timeless experience.

I like Summer of '42 because it is sweet and gentle, hilarious at times, and always very touching. Michel Legrand's Oscar-winning score is simple yet evocative, and Herman Raucher's screenplay was later adapted by the writer into a best selling novel. I recommend this film to young and old alike as a fine example of what a coming-of-age movie should be like.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Great Romantic Films of the 1970's
When your asked to name the great romantic films of the '70s inevitably titles such as the "The Way We Were" and the much maligned "Love Story" come to mind. But most lists always seem to unfairly leave off the wonderful, Robert Mulligan film, "The Summer of '42"."The Summer of '42" was a big box office hit, way back in '71, but now seems to be rarely mentioned or even remembered.Well, I've always loved this somewhat, overly sentimental,'coming of age' story and was overjoyed to find it had come out on DVD.The story takes place during the WWII era on a wind swept, U.S. island, where families go to the beach to escape the summer heat. The episodic film focuses on some fifteen year old boys, who are basically dying of boredom and behaving like average teenagers.The pushy and rather obnoxious, Oscy (Jerry Houser) spends most of the movie try to figure out 'how' and 'when' he'll get sex.Romance dosn't exactly figure too much into his carnal plans.Then there is Hermie (Garry Grimes), who is the exact opposite. He honestly falls in love with a beautiful (but older) warbride named Dorothy (Jennifer O'Neill), who dosn't seem to realize how deep his infatuation is. Eventually the war comes home and tragedy strikes the young women.Hermie is there for Dorothy in her time of need and in the process loses both his virginity and a bit of innocence. Yes, I know this all sounds pretty smaltzy and something out of a pulp romance novel.But to tell you the truth the film really works! Director, Robert Mulligan and screen writer Herman Raucher have combined thier talents to create a movie, which is equal parts nostalgia, romance and in some scenes even humorus (I love the drugstore/condom scene!).The sexual denouement of the film is handled beautifully and with discretion. I love the fact that during the almost silent 5 minute scene you hear nothing on the soundtrack, but an old scratchy record that plays out to it's end groove.What atmosphere!The rest of the film actually has a classic, Oscar winning, romantic score by Michael Legrande, which just sticks in your head and won't let go.If you are interested in seeing a wonderful 'coming of age' story then I highly recommend "The Summer of '42". ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but a little awkward
The "Time Changer" is one of the better Christian-based movies produced recently. But it's not the best.

The basic device of the movie is a little silly, that someone in the 19th century could develop a time machine, but we've seen a lot worse in sci-fi before.

A seminarian, Dr. Russell Carlisle, is sent forward in time by his friend to show him the dangers of his upcoming book's message: that ethics can be separated from Christ. Carlisle, played by D. David Morin, discovers a moral-relative world, much to his shock.

Theologically speaking, the movie lacks any sublety. You know exactly what the theme of the movie is, and it's often hammered down hard. That tends to distract from the other aspects of the movie, but it does parallel with the plot of Dr. Carlisle's book.

I have to add Morin's acting is a little wooden at times. (My wife likened him to Mr. Data from "Star Trek.") He does a much better job with his facial expressions and gestures, as he adapts to the modern world, in what is often quite amusing misadventures.

So, while it's not the absolute best Christian movie made in recent years (I'd give "The Omega Code" that distinction), it's not the worst, and worthy of watching.

4-0 out of 5 stars Timely message can no longer be ignored
Time Changer is a Christian time travel story, but it's more than that-much more. It deals with two primary topics: 1-it deals with the authority of Jesus Christ and 2: Eternity. These two issues are extremely important and cannot be ignored.

Plot: A bible professor-Dr. Russell Carslie has written a book called "The changing times" and he is seeking endorsement from the Grace Bible Seminary board of directors where he teaches before the book is published. Since everyone must give their approval of the manuscript-or no endearment by the board. All is well until Dr. Norris Anderson shows up and raises an objection to one item in the book. He believes that teaching morals alone-without the authority of Jesus Christ will lead many astray.

At first, Dr. Carlisle is as bull headed as they come-refusing to understand or accept what Dr. Anderson's is trying to say. Eventually, he goes to Norrris' Home where he shows Carlisle a time machine that his father built before he died. Carlisle laughs at first-but he realizes that they need to settle the issue. He is then transported in to the future-110 years to be exact.

He then sees the folly of his beliefs. He meets several people. Most of them have a shallow view of life. Even those in the church are ignorant of the truth of Christ. For example, he goes to a movie with a group from the church-and he is the only one who is bothered by the fact that a character on the screen is using the name of Christ in Vain. Every one else just say that "It's only a movie"

This movie DOES NOT paint a rosy picture of the past. At the board meeting, Norris points out that over 5% of marriages end in divorce(1890 numbers). When Carlisle is in the future-he learns that 50% of all marriages end in divorce. This is only one example.

Another reviewer accuses the producers of deceiving him for not informing him that this is a Christian film. If you look on the back of the case-there's a description of the film. It says plainly that it's about a bible professor who is sent into more than 100 years into the future. If that does not tell you that that this is a Christian film-then I don't know what will. There was no attempt by the producers to deceive anyone.

This is a timely film with an important message. Buy or rent this film today.

God Bless,
Jay

1-0 out of 5 stars Time Changer
This movie is bad. Almost bad beyond belief.

It's not a science-fiction movie, for those of you who were led to believe it is. It has sci-fi-elements but that's not the point of the movie. This is a Christian propaganda movie. It tells us that the reason there is so much bad morals in today's society is because we have separated Jesus from the morals and therefore don't know why we should act morally. It also tells us that we're living in the last days of the world.

The movie is extremely moralizing and preachy. One of the most (unintentionally) funny lines in the movie is "I believe that secular entertainment is one of the biggest tools that Satan uses to mislead people". Some of the supporting actors are decent, Jennifer O'Neal for example, but D David Morin who plays the lead part is unbelievably bad, but in a funny way. But then, I don't think any actor could play his part and say his lines and make it believable.

If you think this sounds like a good movie, you might enjoy this it. I guess this was made by, and for, Christian fundamentalist. Others, like me, might get some laughs out of it, but nothing more (except realizing the sad fact that there are people out there who make movies like these, and those who honestly thing they're good).

It seems like the Christians in America have millions to spend, making dozens of movies like this. I guess that's why they ask for donations all the time.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!
Not only is Time Changer one of the best christian movies I've seen, it's one of the best movies I've ever seen. Great story, wonderful screenplay and a strong message.

Time Changer is about a 1800's preacher who travels through time to today and is amazed by the lack of morality. With today's reality tv polluting our screens and total disregard for God and morality, this is an important film.

Thanks for reading and please buy this and show it to your friends. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars True to the NIV text, very educational to watch
I bought this after watching the Visual Bible version of Matthew, and I have not been disappointed. The producers do not play with the NIV text, sticking to it word for word. This certainly must not have been an easy task to accomplish, but I so appreciate that these videos are, for the most part, not "Hollywoodized" and the established text was not tinkered with. I'm sure the producers would have liked to have had more freedom, but it comes off very good and accurate too (which is what I so much appreciate). My young children also enjoy watching this series, and it sure beats having them read the text by themselves. This acts it out, making it not only educational but entertaining. Christians, you ought to have this set in your video collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dramatized Bible brings not only the words but ideas alive
This live-action dramatization of the book of Acts, using only the word-for-word text of the NIV as a script lends new life and meaning to a book people often think they already "get." Nothing is taken away from the story and so much more is made available through seeing the events described take place before you. Even if the message of the text is somehow missed, the manner in which it is told should give anyone insight into how Acts came to be written -- through Luke's witness and collection of people's recollections, multiple stories and viewpoints combined to make a whole picture rather than one person's monogram. If you'ld rather view or hear than read, or if you want a new perspective on how the Bible was put together, Acts in particular, this is the video set for you.

The final film by the legendary director Howard Hawks, released in 1970, found him paired with longtime leading man John Wayne in a story slightly similar to their more familiar Rio Bravo and El Dorado. Set at the end of the Civil War, the story finds Wayne playing a Union army colonel who recovers some stolen gold and roots out a traitor. Though a little creaky (Hawks had been making films since 1926), Rio Lobo nevertheless has his trademark, crackling dialogue, appealing characters, and ensemble spirit among the cast. This was a worthy finish to a fantastic career by a first-rank filmmaker. --Tom Keogh ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Rio Lobo es fantastico!
This is a classic western. Wayne and Hawks show again why they rank as the best actor/director duos in cinema. The villians are scary as hell, the dialogue is crisp and sharp, and the plot is everything you'd want in a western. Jack Elam is hilarious. Jennifer O'Neil and Sherry Lansing are beatiful and sexy (look for a nearly nude scene with Lansing and you'll be wishing she'd never left the silver screen), and John Wayne is at his best! A must for all fans of westerns, John Wayne, and lovers of entertainment cinema. It doesn't get any better than Rio Lobo!

3-0 out of 5 stars Hawks' Cinematic Farewell
Though cut from the same narrative cloth as "Rio Bravo" and "El Dorado," Howard Hawks' "Rio Lobo" (1970) remains a solid Western and a fitting end to the veteran director's career. With a "comfortable" John Wayne back in the saddle, the film is highlighted by impressive action sequences and splendid comic relief from Jack Elam. Admittedly, the younger actors are a bit weak -- and it's a shame that Robert Mitchum was unable to co-star with Wayne as originally planned. "Rio Lobo" may not represent Hawks' best work, but it's a lot of fun.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but entertaining
OK, it's not the best western ever produced. It's more of a full color film in the style of the old Republic westerns of the 30s and 40s. What it does have is a pretty fast moving story line, scene stealing character actors, and very pretty music (except for Jack Elam's mouth harp...).

John Wayne is moving from leading man with love interest to lovable old coot. Jorge Rivera takes over as the hunk. This is early in his acting career and very early in his English, but he's a doll to look at and OBTW, he does an outstanding leap over a fence. Christopher Mitchum looks very much like his father, and the chemistry between him and Wayne is similar to that of his father and Wayne (see Bob in El Dorado and Chris later in Big Jake).

This was Jennifer O'Neal's first movie, and it shows. But Wayne was famous for introducing new actors, even when it was clear they needed practice. Must have been because of the way Wayne himself was mentored in the 30s by John Ford, et. al. Watch his early work and see his own improvement.

Sherry Lansing was sexy and later vengeful. In the latter role, she, too, chewed up the scenery. She could have had a respectable acting career, but chose to shatter the movie mogul glass ceiling instead, and more power to her.

Then there's the scene stealers. David Huddleston can steal one just by being in it. Victor French is both scary and a coward simultaneously, a hard combination, but he can certainly pull it off. Hank Worden only had one scene, but he's as neat as ever. And finally, Jack Elam was a scenery chewing, crazy eyed loonie, with some of the funniest lines in the whole movie.

No, it's not the best, but I like it. It will always be in my personal movie stash.

4-0 out of 5 stars Haven't we seen this story before?
Rio Lobo is a good John Wayne western that borrows from several of his previous movies. The story is about a Union colonel trying to find out who the traitor was in his unit that sold information about gold shipments to Confederate guerillas. Along the way he helps a town escape the wrath of a rich landowner and a corrupt sheriff. The story may seem similar, but this still is a very entertaining movie. What John Wayne movie isn't? The story blends action and story together in this exciting western.

The Duke is great once again as Cord McNally, the Union colonel in pursuit of traitors. Jorge Rivero is awkward as Pierre "Frenchy" Cordona, the Confederate guerilla who helps Wayne. I don't know whether it is actually Rivero talking or someone dubbing his lines in, but it just sounds funny. Joining them are Jennifer O'Neill, Christopher Mitchum, Jack Elam, and Victor French. Elam is great as usual in his role as the eccentric old man in the town. The DVD has a good widescreen presentation that looks cleaned up compared to the one shown on TBS. Otherwise, there isn't any extras added on. This was Howard Hawks last western, and he made a good one. Good story and exciting action. Deserves a watch if nothing else for those who haven't seen this late Duke western!

4-0 out of 5 stars Good movie!
Howard Hawk's swansong is a good one. The train robbery at the beginning of the movie is exceptionally done, and it gets this film off to a fast start. It sags a bit in the middle, but is bolstered by the comic performance of Jack Elam, who is downright hilarious. Great gunfight at the end. Supporting actors are OK, but could have been a whole lot better. You couldn't find two more beautiful women than Jennifer O'Neill and Sherry Lansing, and they certainly add to the dynamics of the movie.

Duke, as usual, delivers a fine performance. The similarities in plot line to El Dorado and Rio Bravo are obvious, but Hawks again does a very nice job. Jack Elam's character really saves this movie, though, because the middle is downright slow. Overall, not John Wayne's best, but good. ... Read more

I saw this movie in a movie house when it was released and after a bet with a friend that there is no way this could have rereleased, i found it here. Save you self the money and see something interesting. This is bar none the worse movie that i have ever seen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gonna make you squeal like a pig!!
A very touching beastiality flick...Done very charming for a plot that revolves around a guy and his Piggy friend. Watch out...Kermit might get jealous! This movie is really entertaining nonetheless, and it really isn't as disgusting as it sounds. It is definately worth seeing, but I advise you to rent it before you buy it, because its definately not for everyone!! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Rather Dissapointing
I bought this video because I wanted to see Tom Sizemore in a starring role (apart from the "Relic"). Though both stars are known for their abilities, they seemed like guests in the film. Awkward acting, and poor directing. The ending is very good, at least we have some reactions from the cast, bun in conclusion, I wouldn't judge TS by this movie. He is a lot more than he seems to be in this one. Definitely recommended for his fans, truly handsome and with lots of sensual scenes.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice to see TOM SIZEMORE in the spotlight...
Pamela Gidley plays Eloise, a down and out chick who is looking for a job, can't keep a boyfriend, has a crappy apartment and has really bad luck. Tom Sizemore plays Lenny, a sweet but annoying guy who can't get a decent job w/out screwing it up. When they meet it, they fall for each other and start a hot-and-heavy, ill-fated romance. After going through a LOT of trouble, Lenny thinks of a plan to make some money...but of course things don't go as planned. Its nice to see Tom Sizemore (Heat, Saving Private Ryan, True Romance, Natural Born Killers) get a lot of screen time and play just a regular guy instead of his usual roles ~ He is a wonderful and underated actor who played the part of Lenny well. I don't know much about model/actress Pamela Gidley, but she pulled her role off well also. She has a certain spunk and charisma that works for her. Although the acting wasn't "Academy Award" winning, it has poor direction, a semi~bad script, and its cheaply made ~ its a good movie to watch late night when your flipping through channels. Die hard Tom Sizemore fans will love it, although it may dissapoint your average movie buff (the sex and nudity seems to subsitute for a good script) Watch out for a small role played by Debi Mazar & Margaux Hemingway! ...

I highly recommend this movie for navy buffs and it has a good story plus gil bellows is not bad on the eyes either

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful film!
Written by Douglas Day Stewart of AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN fame, this movie explores the secret affair between a Navy Seals cadet (a riveting Gil Bellows) and his Commanding Officer's wife (an alluring Nicolette Sheridan). Equally important is the story line of the cadets' struggles to become Navy Seals. Anjul Nigam's performance as Mr. Rahman, a charming Bangladeshi officer who is befriended by Bellows is an absolute delight to watch! Tony Plana as the vicious Master Chief is powerful. This film deserves to be seen! ... Read more

Remember Robby Benson when he was an innocent hero? He's made it to the darkside and he is weirdly convincing there. His all american smile and good looks make for an excellent bad guy.Jennifer O'Neill is still someone to get obsessed with and her daughter,played by Lydie Denier, has a dance scene that is off the temperature charts.The performances here are good enough to take you on this sick little journey, frankly,I was surprised. Don't go here unless you can handle the hair on the back of your neck standing up for awhile.This film might be a good shot around halloween or some other time when you can take creepy. By the way, watch for John Agar briefly as the old convict. Remember him when he was married to Shirley Temple and appeared with John Wayne and starred in such sci-fi classics as The Mole People? This movie will not alter the course of history,but it's rather interesting to watch. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Think of this as "Ten Little Indians" meets "Playboy"
The premise here (believe me, "premise" is a much more accurate word than "story") is that Rex Kingman (Lee Majors) is having financial trouble with his magazine "Image." So he flies his editor, Kate (Jennifer O'Neil) and his top models to an isolated island paradise for a photo shoot that will save the day. But Rex is tempting fate big time. Not only does he hit on Kate's young sister Rachel (Vanessa Angel), he bullies everyone until one of the models is killed doing one of his stupid little stunts. This is the not the last death on their little island of fun as the killer goes after the lovely ladies. Now before you reduce this film down to pure eye candy in the form of Beverly Johnson, Bobbie Phillips and Fawna MacLaren (all of whom would be lucky to grow up to look like Jennifer O'Neill), I should point out that the actual murders of the cover girls makes a concerted effort to rip off Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians." Fortunately, given the audience for this film, that dead give away will not spoil the "whodunnit" aspects of "The Cover Girl Murders." This film actually has some decent moments of suspense, but none of them when Majors is on screen. ... Read more
