5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the gamble, 18 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stepfather Die Trilogie

Stepfather / Part 1-3 - Complete Edition (3 DVDs Edition)

I hesitated to buy this box set as there was so little information in the product description, but I'm glad that I took the risk.
It is a great set.
Just wanted to post all of the product info that I can off the box so that others considering it can make a more informed decision.

The Stepfather (1987):
Region 2
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen, 16:9 - 1:1.85
Language: German DD 2.0 & DD 5.1, English DD 2.0
Classification: 18
Extras: Trailer, Filmography, Slideshow

3 slimline cases in a cardboard sleeve. German print on box. Uncut.
If I had a complaint, it would only be that audio on the English versions is 2.0 - the German 5.1 stereo tracks sound awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn and a good movie, 2 Aug 2011
This review is from: Popcorn [DVD] (DVD)
The Dead of Night Collection version of the DVD.

91 minutes.
No extras; bare bones DVD.
Good a/v quality.
No subs, no captions.

It is the 1991 Popcorn starring Jill Schoelen and Dee Wallace.
An all-night horror film marathon at an old theatre becomes the stage for a killer to prey on the unsuspecting film students running the show.
If you like this movie, this is a great DVD copy to pick up.
And if you want a review of the movie, go to Imdb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 70s flick about zodiacally impaired killer kids, 3 July 2011
Loved this one, I only saw it for the first time very recently and had to buy it.

I grew up in that era, and seeing the clothes and hairstyles and decor was just a trip straight down Nostalgia Lane. I've heard many boo-hoos complain about the girls skirt length as proof that the director was some sort of creep. Sorry folks, here to tell you, there's nothing unusual about the length of that skirt - it was the era of minis and micros. Don't forget, young kids often shoot up several inches in height seemingly overnight, and I remember arguments with my parents about favorite clothes that I had outgrown.

The story is not complex, but the actors do well with what they had to work with, and it all comes across as almost campy fun.

If you liked the scary TV movies of the 70s, I bet you'll enjoy this.

Sibling Rivalry [DVD] [1991]

Dvd ~ Kirstie Alley

4.0 out of 5 stars "I did what you told me to. I had an affair!", 3 July 2011
This review is from: Sibling Rivalry [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This movie, like Madhouse, gives us Kirstie Alley at her best.

Nobody plays desperate, going crazy, can't think straight as well as Kirstie.

Jami Gertz, Ed O'Neill, Bill Pullman and Sam Elliott add to the fun as this little tale of an affair and its tragic aftermath takes a comic turn.

4.0 out of 5 stars How to Repo a Moving Train, 3 July 2011
This review is from: Repo Chick [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
I find there's not much I can add to top-up Brady's review.

This is just a fun, different yet strangely familiar little film.

I know there will be some fanboys/girls who will howl that it is not a Repo Man sequel. Anyone looking for a direct sequel to Repo Man needs to hunt down "Waldo's Hawaiian Holiday: The Official Sequel to Repo Man", the graphic novel done by Alex Cox when the filming of the sequel fell apart.

Keep an open mind. You might be surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Britain Series 1-3 Collection, 29 Jun 2011
Just thinking about some of these skits can make me laugh.
Unbelievable price for so many giggles.
Since we're not getting it on telly anymore, I'm delighted to be able to watch when I want.
Captioned.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Candy is Delirious, 29 Jun 2011
This review is from: Delirious [DVD] (DVD)
I was extremely happy to find this for such a low price.

John Candy in a demented soap opera spoof - doesn't get much better.

There are numerous audio tracks - English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.
Hard of hearing captioning in English and German.
Subtitles in French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Polish and Hungarian.
I've never seen such an assortment of language options.

MGM Movie Time Edition, 1 hour 32 minutes.

Movie review can be found on Imdb.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Your deputy's name is Barney?", 29 Jun 2011
This review is from: Clay Pigeons [DVD] (DVD)
"Some killers are strange, some are deranged, and some are just plain psycho"

Seems like everyone gets a turn to do some killing in this one.
Unbelievably, it works as a comedy.

The Momentum Pictures Edition is 104 minutes, soundtrack is in Dolby Digital 2.0 (unfortunately), English subtitles. The soundtrack is excellent, too bad it didn't get a better version on this disc.

Cheers!
