Chuck - The Complete First Season "Chuck" is not highly original, but there is something about it that captured audiences last season.  This show, for the most part, falls under the sleuthing-spy-action-comedy genre.  But instead of the complete seriousness of the other crime-spy shows, "Chuck" brings humanness and comedy to the screen. Chuck, or Charles, Bartowski (Zachary Levi) is computer geek that works the tech department at the local Buy More (closely associated with the real world Best Buy).  Having been kicked out of Stanford University for cheating, Chuck moves in with his sister, Ellie (Sarah Lancaster).  Chuck and his best friend, Morgan (Joshua Gomez), are the quintessential adults that never grew up.  They still live in their own fantasy world.  All that changes on Chuck's birthday. One night, Chuck receives and email from his ex-roommate at Stanford, Bryce Larkin (Matthew Bomer).  The moment that he opens that ...

Pushing Daisies - The Complete First Season It is refreshing to see a TV show come along and breathe new life in the programming schedule.  "Pushing Daisies" does just that.  The show is not all that complex, which may eventually be its downfall.  The show brings together the feel and elements present in the movie "Big Fish" and the Showtime series "Dead Like Me."  If that is your type of entertainment, then this show is just perfect for you. Ned (Lee Pace) is a 30 year-old pie-maker with a special gift (or curse).  With a single touch of his finger, Ned can bring the deceased back to life.  With a second touch, the newly alive returns to being deceased, this time for good.  One little problem.  If the brought back to life beings are not touched by Ned within one minute of being brought back to life, someone ...

An American in Paris (Two-Disc Special Edition) With songs by George and Ira Gershwin and Gene Kelly’s rapturous dancing and choreography, movie musicals just don’t come much more exuberant or gorgeous than ‘An American in Paris.’ Winner of the 1951 Best Picture Oscar (and five other Academy Awards), ‘American’ stands the test of time, largely because while artists of similar stature in their own right have come along since, there’s no one really like the Gershwins or Kelly. This film provides the real articles at the top of their form. Kelly plays the title role, Jerry Mulligan, an ex-G.I. who after WWII has stayed on in Paris to paint. He’s content with his penniless, bohemian existence until, in quick succession, he is taken under the wing of a smitten, rich American patroness (Nina Foch) and falls for local shopgirl Lise (Leslie Caron) who, unbeknownst to Jerry, is engaged ...

Gigi (50th Anniversary Two-Disc) Partly because it’s a period piece, partly because it deals with subjects that are ever timely and partly because it was so brilliantly made to begin with, ‘Gigi’ hasn’t dated at all. The 1958 musical, which won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Musical Score and six others besides, looks just as charming, sophisticated and humane today as ever. Thanks to its rich-hued DVD transfer, it’s as colorfully beautiful as ever, too. Adapted from a story by Colette by screenwriter/lyricist Alan J. Lerner, with music by Frederick Loewe and directed by Vincente Minnelli, ‘Gigi’ tells the story of the title character (Leslie Caron), a young Parisian girl on the verge of adulthood at the same time that the century is turning from the 19th to the 20th. Gigi, born of a long line of unmarried ladies, is being trained to ...

Snow Angels "Snow Angels" is an independent film from Warner Bros.  It is based on the novel by Stewart O'Nan, which was moderately successful.  This film was released in 2007 as a limited engagement and barely grossed over $100,000 at the box office.  The film has all the key elements of a successful film, but in the end lacks that x-factor that keeps audiences enthralled. Writer-director, David Gordon Green, adapts the novel to the screen.  Green, who is more notable as the director of "Pineapple Express" and "Undertow," does an extremely good job of capturing terrific performances from his actors.  It doesn't hurt when you have some good actors. Annie (Kate Beckinsale) works as a waitress in a Chinese restaurant and raises her daughter, Tara (Gracie Hudson) by herself.  She left her alcoholic, abusive husband, Glenn (Sam Rockwell) and took on a married boyfriend, ...
