title: The Scorpion King (Collector's Editon) 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 Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: The Rock, Kelly Hu, Bernard Hill, Grant Heslov, Peter Facinelli, Michael Clarke Duncan release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom “The Scorpion King” gets off to a rousing start when Mathayus, the hero, breaks into an enemy camp to rescue his brother. The scene opens on a night-drenched, white-capped mountain scene. Immediately, the viewer equipped with a surround sound system gets treated to the noise of the wind howling through the mountains through the center speaker(s), then through the right and left front speakers. On the heels of the wind, furtive footsteps crunch through the snow crust, rolling through the center speaker(s) then through the left and right again, pulling the viewer into the motion.

title: The Count Of Monte Cristo 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Jim Caviezel, Guy Pearce, Richard Harris, James Frain, Dagmara Dominczyk, Luis Guzman release year: 2002 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Despite being one of the oldest plot devices in the world, a desire for revenge by someone who was unjustly wronged remains one of the chief narrative hooks that draw audiences in. Alexandre Dumas penned one of the most timeless classic tales of revenge ever when he sat down to write “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Everyone remembers “The Three Musketeers,” which is why so many movies have been made and remade about those adventurers, but the story of Edmond Dantes has also been filmed many times in many countries, including an American silent version in 1908.

title: Blade II 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: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Ron Perlman, Leonor Varela, Norman Reedus, Luke Goss release year: 2002 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Apart (kind of) from its surly hero and his surlier mentor, “Blade II” is in the best tradition of a particular kind of action movie – the bad guys vs. the worse guys. Imagine “The Wild Bunch” with vampires – which won’t give you the faintest idea of what “Blade II” looks like, but you may get a sense of how it feels. The original 1996 film “Blade” was based on a Marvel comic book about the eponymous anti-hero, half-vampire and half-human, and completely filled with loathing for bloodsuckers. Wesley Snipes’ considerable martial arts skills made him a good choice to play Blade, who has made a life’s work of hunting the undead, battling them with his fists innate supernatural strength (from his vamp half), ...

title: Marked For Death 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: Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Steven Seagal, Joanna Pacula, Keith David, Basil Wallace release year: 1990 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Whether or not you think there’s anything really wrong with ‘Marked for Death’ depends a lot on your sensitivity to racial issues in the 1990s. If the idea of a lone white good guy (supported by a couple of black sidekicks) taking on a whole bunch of superstitious black baddies (who have one or two token annoying white associates) doesn’t make you wince at the outset, then you may enjoy this movie on its modest merits.

title: Spy Game (Collector's Edition) 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 Studios Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Robert Redford, Brad Pitt, Catherine McCormack, Stephen Dillane, Larry Bryggman release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Cloak-and-dagger movies stand as perennial favorites in Hollywood. James Bond films stay in vogue, changing leading men as necessary, but always staying cutting-edge with the technology and weaponry. Tom Cruise’s "Mission: Impossible" has spawned a spy sequel. Vin Diesel’s new movie "XXX," out this summer, features him as an extreme sports spy. While the Cruise and Bond films concentrate on high-octane stunts and huge explosions, "Spy Game" becomes an edge-of-the-seat thriller by concentrating on character and the ticking clock posed by the capture of Tom Bishop (Brad Pitt) in the movie’s beginning, while his CIA bosses prepares to let him be executed.
