Indecent Proposal (1993) "Indecent Proposal" was released in a time in which it was considered a risqué mainstream movie.  By today's standards it is pretty tame.  Despite an interesting proposal, the film falls short of delivering a captivating experience.  The first act of the film flows well and then the story rapidly falls into depths of despair, leaving this film only average. Adrian Lyne is the director of this film and is known for his sensual filmmaking abilities.  Paramount is also releasing Lyne's erotic thriller, "Fatal Attraction on Blu-ray along with "Indecent Proposal."  Lyne has also created works such as, "Nine ½ Weeks," "Lolita (1997)" and "Unfaithful."  Each of these offers powerful emotions and suspense.  Unfortunately, "Indecent Proposal" does not quite live up to these standards. The film follows David (Woody Harrelson) and Diana (Demi Moore), a married couple that have been together since high ...

Nights In Rodanthe (2008) After New Line Cinema’s success with “The Notebook,” Warners decided that another Nicholas Sparks’ novel would be well suited for adaptation to the big screen.  Sadly, the film falls flat, despite the great cast.  “Nights In Rodanthe” is a classic tale and offers nothing new to audiences.  The film came and went in theaters so quickly that if you blinked your eyes you would miss it. The film reunites Diane Lane and Richard Gere, previously paired in “Unfaithful.”  Lane plays Adrienne, a mother of two and wife to a cheating husband.  Gere plays Dr. Flanner, a surgeon with a son that hates him and a wife that seemingly left him, although it is not clear to us what happened there.  One weekend, Adrienne sends her kids off with their father, who just so happens to admit his mistake to ...

Notebook, The (Limited Edition) I know what you are all probably saying.  “How could you endorse this film?”  Well, it’s simple - it is actually a good film.  Try as you might to find serious flaws in film and be reluctant to enjoying the story, “The Notebook” is one of the best romantic dramas in a long while.  It has all the elements necessary.  The characters are lovable, the story is genuine and simple, and the scenery is beautiful. “The Notebook” is based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks.  Warners also has “Nights at Rodanthe” coming up for Blu-ray release, which is a film also based on a Nicholas Sparks novel.  “The Notebook” tells the tale of two lovers that come from different societal classes.  There is nothing new in that part of the story.  It has been used numerous times in cinematic history.  However, ...

Ghost High status has been bestowed upon "Ghost," as one of the most romantic films in recent history.  While I thoroughly enjoyed the film, I don't find it all that terribly romantic.  Yes, it is a little weepy at the end, but throughout the film it is much more about revenge.  Still, the actors and story are there to create a memorable film. Patrick Swayze stars as Sam Wheat, a banker that is deeply in love with his girlfriend, Molly (Demi Moore), who is an artist.  Sam stumbles across what he believes to be a glitch in the banking system, and is later killed that evening during an attempted robbery.  Sam's essence departure from his body is a classically done scene.  Sam rejects going into the light so that he can stay on earth and avenge his death, and look after Molly. It ...

Casablanca (Ultimate Collector's Edition) It’s now clear that “Casablanca,” which won the Best Picture Oscar, is one of the greatest of all Hollywood movies, since it has everything. It tells an interesting, deeply romantic story, and features a star pairing so absolutely perfect that it’s a bit of a shock to realize this is the only movie Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman made together. The rest of the cast couldn’t be better, either: Claude Rains as the coolly cynical police detective, Sydney Greenstreet as Bogart’s friendly café-owning rival, Conrad Veidt as the arrogant Nazi officer and Paul Henreid as Bogart’s rival for Bergman’s love. The cast is full of other delectable bits, as from Peter Lorre and S.Z. Sakall. Many memorable lines pepper the film: “Here’s looking at you, kid;” “Round up the usual suspects;” “I’m shocked, shocked that gambling goes on at Rick’s’;” “I ...
