Paul Day October 13, 2003
It took a few more years and a few more millions of dollars than expected to complete "Kill Bill" and even at that only the first volume has been released.
So, was it worth it?
Writer and director Quentin Tarantino answers that question in the first 10...

Libby Fry October 13, 2003
The play tells the story of Willie Clark (Jim Baker), a crotchety old man who lives in a cheap hotel suite in New York City. Although he was once a star in the lights of vaudeville — and he still converses in snappy one-liners — his star has...

Dave Rossetti October 13, 2003
But thankfully "Bend it Like Beckham" reclaims its innocence with a DVD release that showcases the heart and soul of the charming movie. The movie perfectly plays off the incredibly class-based and repressed cultures of the British and Indian cultures in...

Game of Death (1978)

Dave Rossetti October 13, 2003
"Game of Death" is also an oddly Fellini-esque martial arts movie, as the plot is twisted so Lee's character, a film star, must fake his own death (featuring actual footage for Lee's funeral). But the last true images of Lee's fights are by far the most...
