Welcome to the Michael Rizzo Chessman movie reviews website


This site is intended for the following purposes:

Consumer advocacy and critical reviews of major works in the areas of
Film, art and theatre. Content of interest includes discontinued or rare
footage and foreign film and domestic agenda items. Sensibly sized free
movie download options for the betterment of culture and human welfare
on the planet with which we remain critically concerned at this point in our
history - looking towards a better future as the outcome of our efforts in the
main such as what we have here for you to read and experience.
We ask for donations only if you can afford to give to our cause, and suggest
you offer the cheap five euros to mega.nz who provide storage facilities
on the net at such extremely reasonable cost for those wishing unlimited
high speed downloads for all content at their site from various posters
for terms of even just a month at a time - whenever you need.

Site is intended to edify with the hope of a better secure outcome for our future
as a race (human) that has its best foot forward in this respect. (Our efforts
to disseminate needed material in aid of our humanistic agenda driven by a
conscience which appears uniquely responsive at this crucial time in our
history is more fully explained at our downloads sites listing
link shown at bottom of the page)

By the way, google chrome indicates sites not employing encryption technologies known as SSL
are "not secure" for the level comfort they are seeking on the net. For our part we think this an
unnecessary expense in our case, as we do not ask or give out on any of our webpages any
information not intended for sharing in a public manner. Donations we solicit through paypal or
 interac email transfer are actually facilitated through the paypal website or bank website as
applicable, and they would certainly ensure encryption of data as required for secure transaction
suitable for the purpose of internet security in conformity to prevailing standards.

We are after all involved in a good cause of improving our world through the
explanation we give here for the phenomenons depicted and the suggestions
we make for men of conscience to choose to put the best foot forward. It is
therefore in support of humanism (a christianly spirit in other words) that we
do what we must and see it through no matter the cost to our larger communities
on the planet in which we live - who must bear all costs ultimately to make for
our improved vision to come about instead of where we have been heading for all
too ong no - quite obviously we submit with care. Michael Rizzo Chessman

  Documentaries (Many if not all are available on youtube and kanopy.com
  along with "The Public Broadcast System" Network in the USA - PBS mainly
  Download purchases from content producers are available from amazon.com -
  must be US resident or Apple itunes, and the PBS or all amazon sites for DVDs/HD/Bluray)
  It has to be said that while Apple has recently announced great promotion pricing on
  some available video content through their itunes software download facility at reasonable
  enough cost we figure certainly, they are at the moment seeming insistent on this crazed notion
  that content you've even paid them for to download can only be viewed using their less than
  perfect video player software facility on a computer rather than using your own player
  software such as MPC-HC (free - just download on the net) or view on your own TV screen
  for crissakes using a DRM converter (which removes this artificial and consumer oppressing
  tactic by Apple mainly, in this respect) These DRM converters seem to come and go, however
  you will I believe in the meantime find at least one such converter for free from many download sites
  on the net - they include noteburner, iskysoft (best value if purchasing as they offer great
  multipurpose video conversion utilities and more) , tuneskit (nice features such as audio track
  selector etc) and others - DVDFab has one thats apparently still imperfect however they do
  nice work and hopefully will soon enough have theirs working with the right output file size
 automatic selection etc - they are based in China and have the only competent bluray disc
 backup copy software we have found thus far in our own markets here at this point. ta!

 The industry has for too long been incompetent and draconian in making decisions for the
 marketplace in general as to ehich video content to allow to make available for sale or rental
 and in what quality and at what websites/online facilities, when they have no business doing so.
 Great programs such as White Mischief (Greta Scacchi) have never been made available onto
 the market in North America due to a bigoted mindset hell bent against the human spirit that
 is showing as an alternative for us to applaud and support and foster and nurture and see thrive
 and make come about as an altenative model for our communities here.

 Programs such as (BBC) Upstairs downstairs (1971-1975) are still less than HD quality while
 great offerings such as Kavanagh QC and Inspector Morse (John Thaw in both cases -
 would you believe) are not available for HD purchase from Apple or amazon
 at present as the studio bigshots  making such decisions  are simply an inane mindset seemingly
 on a continual power  trip of a bigoted nature "equally" with no apparent sanity or
 certainly common sense (or perhaps just plain decency even!) enough to stop their incompetence in
 this respect  and simply put out the "stuff" so those interested can pay for crissakes - what's
 "possessing" you guys eh! who the hell died and made you god in this regard?
 It is arguably altogether public property in our domain  in respect of legal arguments which
 could be made - as cultural material of community  investment and interest and in the furtherance
of a humanistic agenda in our own  case - even having BBC programs such as Fawlty towers,
Yes Minister and all else  that;s in the vaults right now - blow the safe open I say - and put the stuff
where  it belongs - where it can be seen and edifiy too potentially for crissakes eh!
