As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been selling off my DVDs. This post is part of a series where I briefly discuss the DVDs I’ve sold. Here’s the next installment.
I liked The Mask of Zorro quite a bit when I first saw in the theater while in college. However, I’m not sure why I bought this DVD. It’s a fun movie, but I don’t like it enough to own it on home video. It’s also periodically available streaming on Netflix, which provides a means to watch if I want to in the future.
Watching The Mask of Zorro after a number of years, I was reminded of two things.
First, the movie was directed by Martin Campbell. He would later direct Casino Royale, which I think is the best James Bond film.
Second, this is the movie that started Catherine Zeta-Jones’ ascendance to movie star status. She looks amazing here. I apologize if that sounds reductive, but it’s also quite true.
