Movie Reviews

Loved It!!

"Rubi was amazing on DVD. I have to admit I was a little iffy whether I should buy it because I have purchased other Novelas on DVD and didn't like them. I'm the first to admit, I was wrong. It has the whole show on it and it's not all chopped up either. It even has some extra footage and an alternative ending. I would strongly suggest this to any Rubi fan. The show was great and the DVD dosen't come far behind."

"One of the reviewers states that the soap opera is not all chopped up. Rubi on DVD is edited and the often boring subplots are gone from this DVD version. Since some of the scenes are omitted there are some scenes that comment on action that has been editted out of this DVD collections. However, most of the major scenes are there."
Rubi, la descarada

"This is arguably one of the best telenovelas of 2004. The story follows Rubi, a poor, beautiful yet ambitious young woman who stops at nothing to get love and, most importantly, money. By schemes and lies, Rubi finally marries a wealthy man, Hector. Yet she cannot forget the one she truly loves, Alejandro. Rubi finally sees that material things are not as important as true love, goodness and kindness. Yet she denies her wrongdoing and, in the end, her evil ways drive her to disaster and misery.
If you like telenovelas (Spanish soap operas) then you will love this one. The story line is refreshing and bittersweet.
EDIT: One important piece of information pertaining to this DVD. It does cut the story line considerably, since the makers TELEVISA do this to all their telenovelas on DVD. Yet the story is still coherent."
Buy It!

"Ever since I saw the first episode of Rubi, I was totally hooked. Rubi is a very captivating telenovela from beginning to end. It has all the qualities that make a telenovela great such as greed, passion, deceit, and romance to name a few. This is an awesome DVD to own. I highly recommend it to any Rubi fan. I would also recommend it to any fan of telenovelas. The DVD has English subtitles so you can still enjoy even if you don't speak fluent Spanish. There are a bunch of extras too! You definitely get your money's worth. There are certain parts that have been edited out, but they didn't take out any of the important parts. Another major plus is the price; I was able to purchase it for less than $20."
