'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Series' DVD Review

Dan Rowan and Dick Martin came on the scene in September 1968 with 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In', a show that TV had never seen before and well to be honest really has never been seen since. Oh, 'Saturday Night Live' probably comes close but their is really nothing that compares to Laugh- In. Your regulars if you want to call them that were Ruth Buzzi, Goldie Hawn, Lily Tomlin, Jo Anne Worley, Arte Johnson, Henry Gibson, Alan Sues, Judy Carnes and Gary Owens. The guests were fantastic including Bob Newhart, Flip Wilson, Kirk Douglas, Sonny and Cher, Sammy Davis Jr., Don Rickles and John Wayne.

I was watching the complete first season the other day and it was so great to see a new musician that had come on the scene by the name of Tiny Tim. He had taken the world with his song 'Tiptoe Through The Tulips' and it was great to see him again. What was hilarious was Judy Carne doing her 'Sock It To Me' sketch for the first time. Richard Nixon made a guest appearance before he got elected President and actually did a 'Sock It To Me' sketch.

Now with the 'Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In: The Complete Series' you get all 140 original episodes and the original pilot. TimeLife has brought together all six seasons for your viewing pleasure. There are 38 disc and they are excellent quality. The sights and sounds are fantastic. You can pre-order through TimeLife.com/LaughIn. This is definitely one for that personal library and if you are to young to remember the show you will certainly want to see some great TV history. If your old enough to remember watching 'Laugh-In' then you will certainly want to pick this up because you know you would have something special. Enjoy.

'Wichita' DVD Review

Jeb (Trevor Peterson) is the creator of a children's TV show that is sliding in the ratings. 'Amy and the Aliens' is an OK show and with a little extra work it can be revived and back in the good graces of everyone. Jeb's boss wants him and a group of writers to go hang out in the woods away from all distractions and come up with some good ideas for the show. There's just one big problem and that is that Jeb is a little bit nuts.

The cabin is big enough for everyone and even though it's a little close quartered it is live able. What makes this a living hell is Jeb himself. He simply is driving everyone crazy. He works them day and night. Now, if say Jeb wasn't around the group of writers would probably have a blast and get a lot of work done. Take for instance Billy (Christopher Wolfe), all he can think about doing is having sex with a girl named Raven (Persia White). Persia is a nice enough girl, but is Jeb's longtime main squeeze. So you can see how having Jeb around would cramp their style. Now, this doesn't really bother Jeb because he's been watching the pair carrying on via closed camera. Yeah, Jeb's a big time voyeur. Jeb also blackmails another writer via the behind the scenes camera action. The work is getting done but it's that really bad phone call that Jeb gets from his boss. The one that tells him that he's fired. You got it, this is when Jeb goes off the deep end.

Our movie has some of the usual cabin in the woods right before the killing takes place but it's not as cliche with everything. You will be on the edge of your seat with anticipation of what's coming next. Candy Factory brings this wonderful psychological thriller to DVD on June 20th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are right on. This will be an excellent addition to that personal library. So sit back and watch Jeb well, simply put, just go nuts.

'The Wedding Party' DVD Review

June has always been the month for weddings. Love just seems to be in the air. Paul (Joel Johnstone) and Margene (Meg Cionni) have decided that they want to start their life together with a June wedding. For most a wedding can consist of securing a church and a large enough room to handle a reception. Some weddings can simply be a few people to hundreds. Now, along with this, you have to feed and entertain the guests. Some weddings might have a buffet or a dinner. Some weddings might have a DJ or a band, depending on the size of the gathering. You have to secure a place for where you want the wedding to take place. You have to either find a church or maybe someone's home or rent a hall. In other words, weddings can be a headache and some couples want a person to handle all these unpleasant details.

Paul and Margene have asked a man named Jim (Blake Lee) to handle all the details. There is just one really huge problem. Jim is a very heartbroken man who recently was a stood up groomsman. He and his former high school sweetheart by the name of Alex (Allison Paige) are in charge of putting the wedding on.

This is definitely not your usual wedding as you can guess. There is plenty of laughs to go around and in some cases you simply can't control yourself. Yes, you will enjoy watching the shenanigans that take place. Thane Economou debuts as writer/director for this hilarious look at weddings. This movie was made in one continuous take. That's right 119 minutes of non-stop comedy at its best.

Candy Factory Films brings this hilarious look at getting married to DVD on June 13th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are perfect. This is definitely one that you will want to keep in your personal library.

'Bambi' Blu-Ray Review

The year was 1942 and the United States was involved in WWII. A young Walt Disney produced a new animated movie called 'Bambi'. A young Doe and her mate The Great Prince of the Forrest had a baby fawn and named him Bambi. The young dear would be very curious about the world around him. He would become friends with a rabbit named Thumper and a skunk named Flower. He would also meet a young female fawn named Faline. The two would later become a couple, but for now they're just friends.

Bambi was very close to his mother and would learn much from her. He wouldn't see his father very much but the Great Prince was always nearby. There was a time when the hunter Man was in the woods and the Great Prince would lead them to safety. It was a very sad time when the Great Prince would reveal the relationship between he and the young Bambi.

Bambi and his mother were looking for food one day when Man shot and killed his mother. Bambi was saddened and alone when The Great Prince revealed that he was Bambi's father. Bambi would grow up to be a fine dear and would get back together with Faline and have children of their own. Bambi would become the Great Prince of the forest like his father before him.

The movie has touched generations of children and adults since its first showing some 75 years ago. I must say that as a child when I first saw 'Bambi', when man shot his mother I cried and cried and held tightly to my own mother. Disney is releasing 'Bambi' on its 75th anniversary on June 6th, 2017 and showing it on Blu-Ray and DVD for your viewing pleasure. The Blu-Ray quality is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This is a definite for your personal library. You will watch it with your children or simply by yourself and will then watch it all over again. Enjoy.

'The Irish R. M. Complete Series' DVD Review

Major Sinclair Yates (Peter Bowles) is a retired English Army Officer. A bit of a stuff shirt if you get the hint. It's 1897 and the Major is about to become a Resident Magistrate/Police Officer in rural western Ireland. Now, anyone familiar with that period knows that when you put a stuff shirt by the book ex army officer among rural Irishmen well let's just say you can expect a few laughs. In other words misunderstandings would be expected.

In the first series, the Major has a tough time adjusting to the carefree Irish ways. Like in one of the first episodes, the Major is accused of stealing a horse. Another episode has to deal with a festival that the Major doesn't want beer served and the local publican has a fit. His superiors think he is to lenient in how he deals with the locals and the church, well the church just continues to do what they have always done in Ireland.

The second series has Fluffy (Bryan Murray) returning from his honeymoon and he begins to carry on his deceitful ways. Fluffy and the Major became friends in the first series and everyone thought when he got married he would settle down, not so. The two men go on a hunt when the Major takes a nasty fall in part due to Fluffy.  One of the better episodes has a vessel running aground loaded with rum. Problem is when all is said and done the citizenry have drank it all. Leaving none to be recovered. The third series has the Major continuing to fit in but still being the odd man out and the ending is one of best. The Major gets an offer to move to another posting and he has to make a decision whether to leave or stay. 

The show ran from 1983-85 and was a favorite for most to watch. Acorn has put the complete series in one package and is available May 30th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are wonderful. The Irish countryside is breathtaking and adds flavor to the show. This has got to be one of the best ever made and is worth a nice spot in that personal library of yours. So get out and pick this one up and simply sit back and enjoy good Television at its best.

'Golden Years' DVD Review

Martha (Virginia McKenna) and Arthur Goode (Bernard Hill) are two of the most upstanding citizens you can lay your eyes on. For the better part of five decades these two people have been law abiding citizens. They pay their taxes on time and as newly retired individuals they believe that their pensions are going to keep them going for years to come. Then tragedy strikes and the financial industry they counted on all these years has now stolen their pensions away from them. The two former pensioners come up with an idea that since the financial industry wants to play hardball then so can they. They come up with an idea for robbing banks. They believe if done correctly that they should be able to secure some of their lost pensions back.

Our couple dress up with masks to cover the faces. Rather than using guns they use cucumbers instead. The Goode's are able to replenish some of their lost funds and they seem to be getting away with their life of crime until two cops get sniffing around. Martha and Arthur decide to pull one more job but they need help from their friends to pull it off. You see the club that they all belong to is going to become a supermarket unless they do something about it. Detectives Sid (Alun Armstrong) and Stringer (Brad Moore) want to catch these pensioners before they finish their life of crime but it's not easy because the Goode's, so to speak, make fine criminals.

Acorn brings this crime drama/comedy to us on DVD on May 30th, 2017. The DVD quality is excellent and the sights and sounds are wonderful. This is definitely one show that you don't want to miss. The comedy is great and the acting superb. This will make a wonderful addition to that personal DVD library. So don't waste any time and pick it up soon. Enjoy.

'Code Of A Killer' DVD Review

This three part miniseries is criminal drama at its best. The story opens in 1983 with the death of 15 year old Lynda Mann. The young girl was raped and murdered and the Leicestershire police department are trying to solve her death. Detective Chief Superintendent David Baker (David Threlfall ) is very frustrated when his team has to shut down the case when they cannot solve the case. Now, some three years later a Dawn Ashworth is discovered murdered and the police notice that there are similarities to the Mann murder. The police on this new case have some leads and eventually arrest a one Gavin Hopkirk. Hopkirk eventually confesses to the murder of Ashworth but not Mann.

Baker this time has heard of a professor at Leicester University who can use DNA to identify someone. It's called genetic fingerprinting. Baker contacts Professor Alec Jeffreys (John Simm) and two men are about to do what has never been done before. Can they actually use a persons DNA to put them at the scene of a crime then you should watch this miniseries and find out. Baker and Jeffreys are not similar men at all and with little funding most people don't give these two a chance in hell of pulling this new procedure off. As I said before this riveting crime drama and it's historical breakthrough makes it a must see.

Acorn brings this miniseries to DVD on May 30th, 2017 and it's worth going out and picking it up. The DVD quality is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This will be an excellent addition to that personal DVD library. Enjoy.

'Rake Series 1' DVD Review

Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh) is a brilliant lawyer. His practice is set up in Sydney, Australia. His brilliance is overshadowed by his self destructive personal life. He is constantly trying to dodge the debt collectors and the Tax man. What gets him in more trouble though are the women in his life. For instance, he has a big crush on a former prostitute by the name of Melissa "Missy" Partridge (Adrienne Pickering). Now Missy is studying to be a lawyer and helps Greene from time to time. Greene also has a thing for his best friend's wife Scarlet "Red" Engles. Barney Meagher (Russell Dykstra) is Greene's best friend and instructing solicitor. Greene sleeps with Scarlet but nothing really comes of it. What does take place is that it brings mega-tension between Barney and Greene.

Greene's clients are usually murderers, bigamists, and even some cannibals. Yes, that's right, cannibals. In the first episode Greene defends a Professor Murray for murder. He likes to eat his victims. In the third episode, Greene defends a bigamist named George Dana who just happens to be married to two women. In the fifth episode, Greene defends a Dr. Chandler who loves to have sex with the family dog.

Now, in the 'Rake Series 1' finale Greene defends Mick Corella who is charged with murder. One of the main reasons Greene defends this gentlemen is because he owes Mick a bunch of money over bad gambling debts. Rake is certainly not your usual lawyer series. This comedy- drama is one of the best coming out of Australia in some time. Greene is a smart cookie but his out of court experiences make you wonder how he survived at all.

Acorn brings this wonderful series to DVD on May 9th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are perfect. This will make a wonderful addition to that personal DVD library. Greene's charm and wit works so well in the courtroom but unfortunately it's what gets him into trouble when he's not working.

'Heidi' DVD Review

Johanna Spyri wrote the story of 'Heidi' back in the 1880's. Since that time it has been made into numerous movies and about 50 million copies in print. The story is rather simple and open. A young girl lives with her Grandfather in the Swiss alps and is whisked to the big city only to be returned to her glorious mountains. There, one could say that's our story in a nutshell, but don't think that's all there is about our young little Heidi. She is orphaned at a young age and she does go to live with her Grandfather Alpohi ( Bruno Ganz). He is somewhat of a hermit and doesn't really associate with many people. He has his goats and that's what makes him happy. There's more though, her grandfather shows her how to live. He shows her how to be her own person. Heidi (Anuk Steffen) lives in a simple cabin in the heart of the Swiss alps. Heidi does find a friend in Peter (Quirin Agrippi). He's a goat herder who is just a little older than her. Together the two youngsters learn what it is to be happy.
One day Heidi's Aunt Dete (Anna Schinz) comes to take her off the mountain and down to live in Frankfurt. Heidi is supposed to stay with the Sesemann family and be a playmate for their wheelchair bound daughter Klara (Isabelle Ottman).  Heidi gets along fine with Klara the two become close friends but it's not enough. Heidi begins to learn to read and write and soon has a passion for books. It's still not enough to fill the void of her beloved mountain home.
Omnibus Entertainment brings this adaptation of 'Heidi' to us on DVD on April 4th, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. The scenery is out of this world. This is a wonderful film and you will enjoy it tremendously. It would be a nice addition to that personal library. You can pick this DVD up at Walmart exclusively so don't waste any time and do it today. Enjoy.

'Saving Banksy' DVD Review

The art world changes its flavors or what it enjoys almost daily. What might be in vogue today could be trash tomorrow. Street art used to be called vandalism. A person would take the side of building and spray paint it sometimes with gang colors to simply a peace sign. The next day the owner would get out there and paint over it or hire someone to do it. Most of the time the artist would never be caught so the owner would have to pay for his own repairs.
What happens when a very well known street artist chooses the side of your building and paints something on it? Well, back in April 2010, an artist by the name of Banksy painted a picture titled "Haight Street Rat". A few years later the painting is getting a good look by collectors and some want to tear it down and auction off the Rat. Then comes those who want to save it. One can ask who is more misguided the collector or those wanting to save it?

Now, one person wanting to save it is named Brian Greif. He decides to make a documentary about his efforts as not all are happy with his efforts. He would take a lot of flak from city officials. He would be snubbed by museums and there would be those who would offer hundreds of thousands of dollars for the painting.
This behind the scenes look at street art or graffiti is most enlightening. You will get to take in some of the thoughts of artists and how they feel about the Rat. Some of these are the tops in street art like Ben Eine, Risk, Anthony Lister,and Doze Green just to name a few. Candy Factory brings this  wonderful story to DVD on May 2nd, 2017. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. So this is an excellent look at street art and graffiti and would be an excellent addition to that personal library. Enjoy.

'Bob Hope Salutes The Troops' DVD Review

Bob Hope...comedian, singer, actor was probably the greatest entertainer that ever lived. For some 50 years he traveled the world to entertain American servicemen and woman around the world. The shows would be taped and shown each Christmas Season. This three disc DVD collection has seven shows from 1963-1991 and has a special show on Hope's memories of shows that he did during WWII. His wife Dolores takes part in this one and its a joy to watch. The boost in moral that a show could give to the troops was remarkable.

The Christmas show that aired in 1963 was taped from the 1962 Chrismas tour that included places like Japan, Korea, Guam, the Philippines, Okinawa, Formosa and the USS Kitty Hawk would also have a show. The show would include Miss America's Amadee Chabot, Lana Turner, and former Miss America Anita Bryant nothing was to good for our troops.

Bob would take the shows to places like Vietnam. Yes, that's right, Vietnam and that was when we were fighting a war over there. Stars would line up to be asked to participate in Bob's Christmas shows. People like Rosey Grier, Marie Osmond, Jill St. John, Roman Gabriel, Lola Falana, Redd Foxx would join Bob all over the world to perform for our men and women in uniform. Bob wanted to bring as many people as he could to boost the moral of our troops. He wanted to show them what they were fighting for.

Bob took the show to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield in January 1991. Marie Osmond and Ann Jillian and the Pointer Sisters would perform for our men and women that year. The troops loved this show and so did the American public.

TimeLife brings the three disc DVD set to us on May 2th, 2017. The quality of the DVD's are excellent and the sights and sounds are exquisite. This is history retold and for some of us it's a journey back to our youth when the family would settle in by the TV and watch Bob Hope entertain the troops at Christmas. This is a must for that personal DVD library and it will be a joy to bring them out to see  for years to come. Enjoy.
