Due to the large format of the IMAX film, something I’ll get into in greater depth, the transfer to DVD is a tenuous prospect at best, as the sheer size of the film guarantees high resolution and clarity, but also a bigger area to contaminate with dust, as well as a bar for visual impact that is already incredibly high, due to the fact that these films are designed to be projected onto eight-story-high screens.

This is a documentary that really emphasizes how little I know about large sections of this country. Director Bradley Beesley sets out to learn more about the tradition of noodling in his home state of Oklahoma. For those of you uncouth enough not to know, noodling is another word for hand-fishing, mainly for catfish, which is apparently legal in only four states: Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.

This is how “The Journey” begins. “The Journey” is the story of Eric Saperston and his quest for knowledge, which he embarks on by asking questions of the generations that have traveled it previously. Saperston just graduated from college and is asking himself that age-old question, “What is life about?” His journey starts with him selling “sexy kind” grilled cheese sandwiches “made with love,” traveling to Grateful Dead shows. He decides to go and ask some very prominent and influential people to share their views. The first person was none other than Jerry Garcia, only two months prior to his death. Garcia was intrigued and invited Saperston to San Francisco, but time wasn’t on their side. This doesn’t stop Saperston; ...

title: Roger & Me 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: As this is a documentary, there is no cast list per se, though director Michael Moore is onscreen a lot release year: 1989 film rating: Four and a half stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren With this, his first movie, writer-producer-director established himself as the gadfly of corporate America, a knowledgeable, cynical-but-optimistic buttinsky who just won't go away. Picked up, surprisingly, by very mainstream studio Warner Bros., "Roger & Me" played in far more theaters than documentaries ever do. It received strongly positive reviews and great word of mouth, resulting it its becoming the largest-grossing documentary ever released.

title: The Real Cancun 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: A bunch of college kids. release year: 2003 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Three and a Half Stars reviewed by: Paul Lingas For those who enjoy watching MTV’s “The Real World,” this is a condensed, racier and somewhat more ridiculously funny version of the long-running, documentary-style show. MTV’s “Spring Break” fans will also find this entertaining, as it gives the behind the scenes version of what happens after all of those wet t-shirt contests that Carson Daly and others have hosted over the years. If you haven’t happened to have ever seen or heard of MTV but like movies that have no plot or point except to show a bunch of good-looking college kids in bathing suits drinking in Mexico, and I know there are a lot of you, then this is also for you.
