My Thoughts:
I didn't expect much of this movie. Especially because of the rather low rating on IMDb. But I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it throughout. All the three storylines were fun to watch. The music was also okay. And there was a very nice sequence which was paying tribute to Charlie Chaplin.
I bought this movie because of Priyanka Chopra. There are some movies with her that I really enjoy. Like "Krrish", "What's Your Rashee?" and "Pyaar Impossible". But she also has some really big turds. Luckily this is one of her good works.

True Romance, a review by GSyren


True Romance (883929-075560)
United States 1993 | Released 2009-05-26 on Bluray from Warner Home Video
121 minutes | Aspect ratio 2.40:1 | Audio: English Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby TrueHD 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Commentary Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo, Commentary Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo, Commentary Dolby Digital 2-Channel Stereo
Directed by Tony Scott and starring Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman

Runaway lovers Clarence and Alabama (Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette) play a dangerous game when they come to possess a suitcase of mob contraband. They head for Los Angeles, where they'll sell the goods and begin a new life. But both sides of the law have other ideas. Screenwriter Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown) and director Tony Scott (Top Gun, Spy Game) shoot the works in this hard-edged mix of hip wit and dazzling action with an electrifying ensemble cast to die for.

My thoughts about True Romance:
It's funny how the same movie can have different impact on me depending on the mood I'm in at the time. When I watched True Romance on DVD 13 years ago, I rated it three stars (which for me means just OK). The blu-ray release has been waiting in my unwatched pile for 4 years, but now seemed a good time to watch it. And I liked it a whole lot better than last time. And that's strange, because as a general rule I like graphic violence less now than I did 13 years ago.

There are a lot of excellent actors in this movie. I have to admit I haven't been a great fan of Christian Slater, but he is very good in this one. Gary Oldman is marvellous in one of those creepy roles that he excels at. And we have Patricia Arquette, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gandolfini, and Tom Sizemore, just to mention a few of the good actors in this movie.

Tony Scott was a very good director; perhaps somewhat overshadowed by his big brother Ridley, but still excellent in his own right. True Romance is just one in a string of great movies.  I have 10 of his movies in my collection, and a few where he was producer or executibe producer. One of those - The Grey - is still in my unwatched pile.

I'm glad I decided to revisit True Romance. It's a very good movie, and it deserved to be viewed when in the right mood.
I rate this title

Charmed Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Disc 6:
"Love Hurts"
Original Airdate: May 19, 1999
Returning to San Francisco, Leo (Brian Krause) asks the Halliwell sisters to protect an innocent woman who is being stalked by a demonic auditor. Piper finally learns that her beau, Leo, is a White Lighter. Because of this, Piper must say goodbye to her love.

My Thoughts:
This was a really good episode. Now all the sisters know about Leo as they fight to save his life. The sisters use a spell to switch powers so Piper can try to save Leo with his own healing power. As Phoebe said... it was a supernatural "Freaky Friday".


Original Airdate: May 26, 1999
Fighting for their lives, the Charmed Ones combat time sorcerer Tempus Fugit (guest star David Carradine) who has created a terrifying time loop. It is a race against the clock as the sisters try to find a way out of their terrifying recurring fates.

My Thoughts:
A great way to end the season. A ""Groundhog Day" type of episode as Tempus aides a demon to try to get rid of The Charmed Ones. Even though it was pretty obvious to have Phoebe see through the time loop with her psychic powers... but how else could they really of done it? It was the most obvious way... but at the same time the best way in my opinion.

Overall Season 1 Thoughts:
A great beginning to what I have always felt was an awesome series. I know many people that do not care for this show at all... and many who stopped at season 3... then there has been many that stopped at season 5 or 6.  I on the other had loved this series clear to the end. But fear I am one of the few. So if you haven't seen this series I would suggest checking out an episode or two before going out of your way to buy it. Unfortunately the first season (as well as the next 6 seasons) has no extras (other then promo trailers) what so ever. This was always a sad thing for me... but at least they tried to make up for it in the 8th (and final) season.
