title: Out Of Sight function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Ving Rhames, Don Cheadle, Dennis Farina, Albert Brooks, Steve Zahn, Nancy Allen. Unbilled: Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson release year: 1998 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren While not a hit, this movie pleased virtually everyone who saw it in theaters, and it's only going to win more followers on video -- particularly in this terrific DVD. There are plenty of extras, which is easy enough to do, if you have the footage, but here they're particularly well organized, with interesting deleted scenes, intelligent commentary by director Steven Soderbergh and writer Scott Frank, and well-chosen clips from the "electronic press kit" created to publicize the film, including some words from Elmore Leonard, author of the original novel.

title: King Kong   studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 appearing: Naomi Watts, Jack Black, Adrien Brody, Andy Serkis, Thomas Kretschmann, Evan Parke, Jamie Bell, Kyle Chandler, Colin Hanks. DVD release year: 2006 director: Peter Jackson film rating: Four and a half stars sound/picture rating: Five stars reviewed by: Bill Warren For long-time moviegoers, it’s still a bit surprising to see a major film like the 2005 “King Kong” turning up on video so soon after its theatrical release. For long-time video buffs, this well-produced 2-disc set will be welcome and disappointing in about equal amounts.

title: Doom: Unrated Version function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: Unrated Starring: Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike, Raz Adoti, The Rock Theatrical release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: One Star sound/picture rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas “Doom” is based on the video game of the same name that debuted in the early 1990s. Not the first video game to be adapted for the screen and surely not the last, “Doom” might be the worst adaptation yet. Set 200 years into the future, though you wouldn’t know it by the goofy-looking helicopter, something has gone horribly wrong at the Olduvai base on Mars. Apparently there are a bunch of dead scientists and someone has to investigate. Who better than a bunch of hokey big guys playing Marines, none of whom seem to be anything like actual military? We meet Sarge (The Rock), John “Reaper” Grimm (Karl Urban) and your regular, highly stereotypical group of big, beefy guys.

title: The Legend Of Zorro function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Sony Picture Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG Starring: Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rufus Sewell, Adrian Alonso, Julio Theatrical release year: 2005 DVD release year: 2006 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Zorro is an iconic hero, one of those born into the mythology of today’s generation, encompassing those ideals that stand for what many people idealize. Where Superman stands for truth, justice and the American way, where Batman stands against the darkness of the urban world, where Tarzan exhibits the noble savage, Zorro strikes against the iron hand of oppression. In “The Legend of Zorro,” Alejandro de la Vega (Antonio Banderas) champions the statehood of California and takes up sword and whip against those who would destroy the United States.

He co-wrote and produced 2002’s “The Transporter” and returns to handle part of the writing chores on this movie.
