ROAD TO VICTORY Comments

As a film festival judge, I have screened many independent movies. Recently, I watched "Road To Victory" - the story of an ex-football player who is unable to perform sexually.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN-AT WORLD’S END DVD REVIEW

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END ROG’S VIEWPOINT - 4 CAMS RATED PG-13 Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Capt. Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) set sail to rescue Pirate Lord Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from Davy Jones’ Locker. All of the Pirate Lords, including the treacherous Capt. Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat), must meet and unite to regain control of the high seas from Lord Beckett (Tom Hollander) and Davy Jones (Bill Nighy). Beckett, holding Jones’ heart hostage, is in control of the Flying Dutchman. “Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End” is a long (almost 3 hours), but ultimately satisfying conclusion to the swashbuckling series.

At times, confusion reigns as the intricate plot sorts out the multiple character situations. Capt. Sparrow’s afterlife in the Locker, filled with rock crabs and a crew

Help with movie titles

ATTENTION: I have been providing this free movie research service for several years now, but it has recently become too time consuming. I will continue to provide this service for a fee. If you need my help, I can be reached at cinemaclips.com. Click on contact at the bottom of the home page. For those who have appreciated my work, many thanks. Have a movie you would really like to see again but can't quite remember the title? If you can supply only a portion of the information about it, such as who starred in it and the general plot, chances are that we can give you that movie title and tell you whether it is available on video. TIPS - We have had several notices of "hard-to-find" videos being offered at auctions. You might want to check those sites periodically
