Gods and Generals [HD DVD]

Gods and Generals [HD DVD] Lowest new price: $28.01
Lowest used price: $26.00
List price: $28.99

A sweeping epic charting the early years of the Civil War and how campaigns unfolded from Manassas to the Battle of Fredericksburg, this prequel to the film Gettysburg explores the motivations of the combatants and examines the lives of those who waited at home.

The more you know about the Civil War, the more you'll appreciate Gods and Generals and the painstaking attention to detail that Gettysburg writer-director Ronald F. Maxwell has invested in this academically respectable 220-minute historical pageant. In adapting Jeffrey Shaara's 1996 novel (encompassing events of 1861-63, specifically the Virginian battles of Bull Run, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville), Maxwell sacrifices depth for scope while focusing on the devoutly religious "Stonewall" Jackson (Stephen Lang), whose Confederate campaigns endear him to Gen. Robert E. Lee (Robert Duvall, giving the film's most subtle performance). Battles are impeccably recreated using 7,500 Civil War re-enactors and sanitized PG-13 violence, their authenticity compromised by tasteful discretion and endless scenes of grandiloquent dialogue. Still, as the first part of a trilogy that ends with The Last Full Measure, this is a superbly crafted, instantly essential film for Civil War study. For all its misguided priorities, Gods and Generals is a noble effort, honoring faith and patriotism with the kind of reverence that has all but vanished from American film – but provides abundant proof that historical accuracy is no guarantee of great storytelling. --Jeff Shannon

Epic Action Drama. Set in Japan during the 1870s, The Last Samurai tells the story of Capt. Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise), a respected American military officer hired by the Emperor of Japan to train the country's first army in the art of modern warfare. As the Emperor attempts to eradicate the ancient Imperial Samurai warriors in preparation for more Westernized and trade-friendly government policies, Algren finds himself unexpectedly impressed and influenced by his encounters with the Samurai, which places him at the center of a struggle between two eras and two worlds, with only his own sense of honor to guide him.

Interviews:Making an Epic: A Conversation with Edward Zwick

While Japan undergoes tumultuous transition to a more Westernized society in 1876-77, The Last Samurai gives epic sweep to an intimate story of cultures at a crossroads. In America, tormented Civil War veteran Capt. Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) is coerced by a mercenary officer (Tony Goldwyn) to train the Japanese Emperor's troops in the use of modern weaponry. Opposing this "progress" is a rebellion of samurai warriors, holding fast to their traditions of honor despite strategic disadvantage. As a captive of the samurai leader (Ken Watanabe), Algren learns, appreciates, and adopts the samurai code, switching sides for a climactic battle that will put everyone's honor to the ultimate test. All of which makes director Edward Zwick's noble epic eminently worthwhile, even if its Hollywood trappings (including an all-too-conventional ending) prevent it from being the masterpiece that Zwick and screenwriter John Logan clearly wanted it to be. Instead, The Last Samurai is an elegant mainstream adventure, impressive in all aspects of its production. It may not engage the emotions as effectively as Logan's script for Gladiator, but like Cruise's character, it finds its own quality of honor. --Jeff Shannon

Sight Words Level 3 DVD by Rock 'N Learn: 70+ words includes all Dolch first-grade sight words and many Fry words Lowest new price: $10.95
Lowest used price: $10.50
List price: $15.74
Brand: Rock 'N Learn

Kids love reading and singing with the zany armadillo Festus and his friends. Sight words are the most common words in children's literature. It's important to have the skills for reading them quickly and automatically. This video covers all Dolch first-grade sight words and many from the Fry's list. It reviews some of the words from Sight Words Level 1 (pre-k) and Level 2 (kindergarten). If your child is ready to begin reading first-grade words, this engaging DVD program will help boost their literacy skills.

Colorful animation, lots of humor, and energetic music will get your child involved in learning to read. The comical characters present each sight word individually to practice quick recall. The characters also provide practice with the sight words in sentences, short stories, and songs. Learning sight words in a meaningful context assists with reading comprehension (reading for meaning). Singing along with songs that feature the sight words helps tap into different areas of the brain.

This program uses multiple methods for learning to read. It's fun, multisensory, and effective. It offers a distinct advantage over videos that only present sight words in isolation and apart from their meanings. Practicing the sight words in sentences and stories also builds reading confidence. Repetition is essential for learning to read sight words, and kids love using this video again and again.

A bonus chapter, accessible from the Main Menu, presents each word in isolation. This helps learners focus on the shape of a sight word and even provides a game to practice spelling each word. A submenu on the DVD allows you to jump to the group of sight words that you want to practice.

Sight Words Level 3 is designed to be effective at home or in the classroom, with individuals or groups. It's perfect for providing a differentiated approach to building language literacy.

Cream, Royal Albert Hall: London, May 2-3-5-6 2005 [HD DVD] Lowest new price: $4.45
Lowest used price: $3.46
List price: $5.24
Brand: Cream

Cream are considered Rock's first supergroup, and though they were together just under three years, they have sold over 35 million records. Cream played their final two shows at The Royal Albert Hall in November 1968. 37 years later and Ginger, Jack and Eric returned to the Albert Hall for a spectacular reunion gig, performing their most popular tracks, including: 'Badge', 'I'm So Glad', 'Crossroads', Sunshine Of Your Love', 'White Room' and many, many more.

They step onto the stage of London's Royal Albert Hall: Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, and Eric Clapton. The capacity crowd, which includes Sean Penn and Jude Law, stands to greet them. Thirty-seven years after their farewell concert, the famously fiery Cream did the unthinkable--they reunited. This double-disc collection (and accompanying CD set) captures highlights from the historic four-day engagement, beginning with a buoyant "I'm So Glad" and ending with a triumphant "Sunshine of Your Love." It would be churlish to suggest that Cream appears exactly as they did in the 1960s (Bruce looks a little frail), but the legendary power trio still has the goods. Bruce is still the essence of soul (a particularly rich vocal on "Politician"), while Baker is as irrepressible as ever (a rare vocal on "Pressed Rat and Warthog," percussive tour-de-force "Toad"). Then there's Clapton, who remains as much a master of the guitar as of understatement. "Thanks for waiting all these years," he quips after a slow-burning "Outside Woman Blues," then adds, "We're going to do every song we know." The track listing is, indeed, generous, despite the absence of such Cream classics as "I Feel Free," "Strange Brew," and "Tales of Brave Ulysses." All told, there are 22 songs plus three alternate takes--and not a bad one in the bunch. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

  • In May of 2005 Cream returned to London's Royal Albert Hall--to the same stage where they had done what was thought be their final performance in 1968. It was one of the most eagerly anticipated, hard-to-get tickets in Rock history. With the exception of a brief reunion set at their 1993 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cream had not played together in nearly four decades. This D

When Martin Scorsese, one of the world's most skillful and respected directors, reunited with two-time Oscar-winner Robert De Niro in GoodFellas, the result was one of the most powerful films of the year. Based on the true-life best seller Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi and backed by a dynamic pop/rock oldies soundtrack, critics and filmgoers alike declared GoodFellas great. It was named 1990's best film by the New York, Los Angeles and National Society of Film Critics. And it earned six Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Robert De Niro received wide recognition for his performance as veteran criminal Jimmy "The Gent" Conway. And as the volatile Tommy DeVito, Joe Pesci walked off with the Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Academy Award nominee Lorraine Bracco, Ray Liotta and Paul Sorvino also turned in electrifying performances. You have to see it to believe it - then watch it again. GoodFellas explores the criminal life like no other movie.

Martin Scorsese's 1990 masterpiece GoodFellas immortalizes the hilarious, horrifying life of actual gangster Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), from his teen years on the streets of New York to his anonymous exile under the Witness Protection Program. The director's kinetic style is perfect for recounting Hill's ruthless rise to power in the 1950s as well as his drugged-out fall in the late 1970s; in fact, no one has ever rendered the mental dislocation of cocaine better than Scorsese. Scorsese uses period music perfectly, not just to summon a particular time but to set a precise mood. GoodFellas is at least as good as The Godfather without being in the least derivative of it. Joe Pesci's psycho improvisation of Mobster Tommy DeVito ignited Pesci as a star, Lorraine Bracco scores the performance of her life as the love of Hill's life, and every supporting role, from Paul Sorvino to Robert De Niro, is a miracle.
