My Thoughts:
This movie is a double-dip for me. When you read my old review for this, you will see that I talked a lot more about how horrible the transfer is, than I did about the movie. Now Rapid Eyes Movie released it, who is reliable to bring decent transfers of Bollywood movie. This is no exception. I am glad I double-dipped.

I still enjoyed the movie as much as I did the first time around. Maybe even more so. Rani and Shah Rukh were great as always.
My favorite song from this movie is Minnat Kare, which I bought a long time ago on iTunes and still enjoy listening to it.

My Thoughts:
This is the oldest Titanic movie I have and I think it is the first talkie about the Titanic disaster. It was produced in Nazi Germany in 1942.
Besides the fact that the movie blames the greed of the capitalistic Britain for causing the disaster by having the Titanic go at full speed despite the ice warnings, this movie is quite similar to later attempts.
Many elements of Cameron's Titanic can already seen here.
For its time the movie had great effects. Not once is there is a scene which looked cheap.

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom


     That's My Bush!: The Definitive Collection (2001/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

Comedy Central DVD (United States)
Length:176 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo
Subtitles:


Plot:
Conceived during the 2000 Presidential Campaign and launched just months after his inauguration, That's My Bush! offers a glimpse into the life of George W. Bush in his very own prime-time television show.

In this definitive collection of all eight episodes, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone provide a unique take on the state of network sitcoms while skillfully dealing with controversial subjects like abortion, the war on drugs, and the death penalty.


That's My Bush!
Season 1.01 An Aborted Dinner Date
Writer: Trey Parker (Writer)
Director: Jeff Melman
Cast: Timothy Bottoms (George W. Bush), Carrie Quinn Dolin (Laura Bush), Kurt Fuller (Karl Rove), Marcia Wallace (Maggie Hawley), Kristen Miller (Princess Stevenson), John D'Aquino (Larry O'Shea), Lisa K. Wyatt (Joyce), Toddy Walters (Tour Guide), George Brandon (Felix's Assistant), Kevin D. Carlson (Lead Puppeteer), Steven Chiodo (Puppeteer #2), Ed Chiodo (Puppeteer #3)

Strangely, it is a fun idea to do a standard sitcom in a White House setting. I have enjoyed this series. But I can understand that it didn't last long. It's a fun premise, but not something I can see working for multiple seasons.
This series was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the guys behind South Park. And their humor is very noticeable here.
