    BEAUTIFUL STORYTELLING

    Spielberg proves again with this film that he is one of, if not the greatest director of all time. This story of oppression has less to do with black struggles, and more to do with the power and love that is in the human spirit. Truly the most touching and triumphant films ever made. It is still one of the Academy Awards' greatest crimes that they completely ignored this film! SHAME SHAME SHAME!

    I saw the movie 10 times.

    Other than The GodFather and WestSide Story have I ever watched a movie so intently and over and over. How it did not win oscars is so shocking to me. I own all the movies that i mentioned along with all Spike Lee movies. Dr. Zhavago (sp) and Imintatio of Life are favorites. I am so glad for DVD!

    As I See The Color Purple

    This was an exceptional movie. I have about three sisters and a brother. We grew up very close and I could not see my life without them. Especially when you grow up doing so much together. Those are the memories you carry for the rest of your life no matter how apart you are from them.

    ''That day I see'd you in the store, I knowed dey is a God!''

    This movie is just so amazingly wonderful and touching. I have seen it many, many times. I own it both on DVD and VHS. I never fail to laugh out loud or sob or do both at the same time. Rarely has a movie touched me in such a profound and perfect way. It's also such an quotable film I can, literally, watch the movie with the sound muted and my friend Crys and I can recite the entire thing line-for-line. For those of you who never have read it (shame!), the original book by Alice Walker is also good but in a completely differenty way. I highly recommend both. If I could give any title more than 5 stars, this would be the one.

    My all-time favorite

    If you don't cry (happy tears) non-stop from the moment you hear the words ''Miss Celie I feels like singin''' through to the end of the movie, you aren't human. A touching, beautifully filmed, epic masterpiece. You will fall in love with these characters.
