The hot debate, believe it or not, amongst IWC members, is what's better in a Superstar biography DVD. A whole documentary style disc with some matches on bonus discs, or a career retrospective, focusing manly on matches and introductions. I'm a huge fan of the latter and so was immensely pleased with this release.There are nearly 30 matches included, and Rey stays in character while describing the feuds and matches which made his career. The quality of matches drops noticeably after Disc Two, but the matches remain fast paced and entertaining.The collection starts off with Mysterio in the Battle For Respect cross promotional match, way back from when he was a lucha libre wrestler in 1994. Next up he's in ECW wrestling good matches with later WCW rivals Psicosis and Juventud Geurrera.Then Rey's in WCW where he had a great rivalry with Dean Malenko, three of their matches are included on Disc One, along with two blinding matches with The Ultimate Dragon, and matches with Super Calo and Juhsin Thunder Liger, one of the finest cruiserweight wrestlers of all time.Disc Two starts off with arguably the best match to happen in WCW, Mysterio's match with Eddie Geurrera from Halloween Havoc 1997, and then another match with Guerrera from World War 3 1997. The disc then covers Rey's matches with Juventud Geurrera, Chris Jericho, Psicosis and Blitzkreig before taking Rey to the WWE.The disc includes two quality matches between Rey and Chavo Geurrera, a superb match between Rey and Kurt Angle from Summerslam 2002, a blinder with Matt Hardy from 2003, and another super match against Tajiri from January 2004.Disc Three takes Rey's career from when he left the cruiserweight ranks, starting with him teaming with Eddie Geurrere to win the tag team titles off the Bashams at No Way Out 2005. This is a well done comedy match which led into the Eddie / Rey rivalry. Two excellent matches from that rivalry are included, the blinder from Judgment Day 2005 and one from SmackDown in June.The Disc then gets Rey's thoughts on the passing of Eddie in November 2005, before showing one of his best matches, taking on Shawn Micheals on the Eddie Geurrera Tribute edition of RAW.Next is Rey's winning the World Heavyweight Champiobnship from Kurt Angle and Randy Orton at Wrestlemania 22. This is an awesome, criminally short match.Next up is the under rated classic World Championship (they dropped the "Heavyweight" during Rey's reign) match between Rey and JBL from Judgment Day 2006. This is a great example of a big man/ little man match and delivers some tremendous action.The DVD ends with the rivalry with Chavo Geurrera, including Rey's victory in a Falls Count Anywhere match at No Mercy 2006, before strangely ending with REy losing an "I Quit" match to Chavo that would sideline Rey for the next ten months.Overall this is a tremendous DVD about an under rated wrestler. There is a nice collection of matches and the WWE matches included are all good. Worth buying for the Rey/ Geurrera match from Halloween Havoc and the Rey/ Angle match at Summerslam 2002 alone.If you are a fan of wrestling and get the chance, check it out, you won't regret it.
While the ending of "City Girl" is rather poor, it still is a film well worth seeing, as it shows just how artful a silent film can be. While this was, for the most part, directed by the famous F.W. Murnau of "Nosferatu" fame, this film seems to have little in common with this early horror classic. Instead, it's one of Murnau's tales of the common man--something he excelled at in the late period of his too-short life.The film begins with a young man, Lem, in the big city to sell his family's wheat crop. It's obvious that his very controlling father has very little confidence in the young guy and when he returns from the trip, the jerk of a father holds two things against him. First, the price of the wheat crop was very low and he blames Lem for this. Second, Lem returns with a new bride and while it's never certain why, the father instantly hates the lady--thinking she married him for his money. Considering that the family owns a large farm, this makes little sense as I'd think few city gals would want to move to the middle of no where! In fact, the father's character is THE problem with the film. While the film is breathtaking with its rich cinematography, the angry dad never made sense---especially since late in the film he miraculously changes--welcoming his new daughter-in-law into the family!! How much of this hole-ridden plot is the fault of Murnau, I have no idea as the studio substituted another man at the helm at the last moment--and the final product perhaps was NOT his vision. I do know that artistically, what I loved about the film was undoubtedly his vision--as it bears the marks of his style. The film is simple and gorgeous from start to finish--as Murnau had quite the eye for the craft.
When it comes to silent film directors, FW Murnau is absolutely one of the best and most influential. His lesser work, such as 'The Haunted Castle', is still watchable, and his best work such as 'Faust', 'The Last Laugh' and 'Sunrise' is masterpiece level. He was a truly brilliant director (whose premature tragic death was a big loss) and very interesting and quite consistent, with his films being visually stunning and full of interesting themes and great atmosphere.His penultimate film 'City Girl' is not among Murnau's best or one of his milestones, other films of his have a bigger influence in cinema (i.e. 'Sunrise', which this film has been compared to on occasions). It is still a very, very good, and often great, film with so many brilliant things and is a visual and directorial triumph. If the story was stronger as that does bring the film down somewhat (not massively though), 'City Girl' would have been even better as it had all the makings of being a cinematic classic.As said, 'City Girl's' weak link is the story, which is very simple, at times barely existent, and some plot points have been used such a lot in film that it felt narratively on the predictable side due to not having many surprises or much new. The ending especially can be seen from quite some distance off and seemed a little neat.On the other hand, the story is also very charming and elegant and really liked its restraint. Some of it is very moving too. The characters are interesting and don't come over as caricatures and the conflict has tension, they are also acted with intensity and sincerity without being histrionic. Mary Duncan gives her role a lot of life and pathos in a beautifully understated way and Charles Farrell does show that while slightly too innocent (which is more to do with the role in a way) that he could do good performances outside of his pairings with Janet Gaynor. My favourite performance of the film came from David Torrence, giving his meaty father figure plenty of stern intensity that is smouldering at its best while not overacting.The music has a lot of charm and poignancy to it too which was perfect for 'City Girl's' tone. The biggest stars though are the visuals and the direction. Murnau's direction is nothing short of exemplary, Murnau's direction is some of his most accomplished, keeping things moving in a way that is never dull, maintaining a grippingly poignant and restrained atmosphere throughout.Even better is the way 'City Girl' looks. Simply put, the film looks amazing still, the use of light and shadow is quite masterful and the settings are sumptuous and not too stagy. Best of all is the cinematography, which is so gorgeously expressive and some of the absolute best of any recent first time viewing.Concluding, very, very good indeed. 8.5/10
A Minnesota farm boy who has had no experience outside the farm, goes to Chicago to the board of trade on a responsible errand for his father. His father is a humorless, abusive character. Everyone lives in fear of him. When Lem meets a waitress and marries her, there is hell to pay on the farm. The father actually slugs her during a confrontation. Because Lem decides in favor of his family, Kathy, the young woman, is left in a terrible situation. The farmhands make life horrible for both of them. It's a movie about reawakening with Murnau's incredibile cinematic touch.
This is another one of those good old southern sagas that shows how the old southern decadence and certain tradition was truly falling apart by the mid 20th Century. Writers like Tennessee Williams, William Inge and here Horton Foote developed strong character and family studies about troubled individuals dealing with long-lasting resentments and hidden secrets. Here, Steve McQueen's Henry is coming to terms with being a paroled convict sent up by his only living relative, now a dying old lady who considers him no good. He's married to Lee Remick and has a young daughter and rather than go to night school to find a trade like his old relative wants, he becomes involved in a band, singing and making an effort to be as honest as he can.The film starts with Remick on a bus heading out to meet her husband after he gets out dealing with an old woman on the bus who has nothing good to say about the prison farm workers. This puts ideas in a little girl's head that remix doesn't want her to have, and when she finally reconciles with her husband, it's obvious that they are doing their best in spite of the odds to make things work. But McQueen is still troubled greatly, dealing with local prejudice and the reputation he has gotten thanks to his past and family gossip.Strong supporting performances by Don Murray, Estelle Helmsley and Josephine Hutchinson add to the strengths of this drama ably directed by Robert Mulligan of "To Kill a Mockingbird". You want to root for McQueen, but the troubles two faces are deeply embedded into his psyche, and while he's making a grave effort to adapt to a new life, the odds throughout the film seem to be against him. That creates good drama and good material for Remick and McQueen to work off of. However, it is often a bit depressing even though the musical sequences including the often her title song do live in things up. Glen Campbell is among the members of the band he performs with. 59ce067264
