Metallica Through the Never [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray]
Metallica Through the Never [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ James Hetfield
Price: £5.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Filmed in 3d , the way all concerts should be done., 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am much more of a melodic metal fan than a fan of thrash. But this group is so good it even appeals to me. And this 3d blu ray gives you a great show and it was filmed in native 3d. Which is awesome. All concert films should be done like this. Metallica puts on a great show and we see why they have remained popular all this time. Even there stint with the later great hall of famer Lou reed was interesting. he joined them for a while. Metallica of course is a hall of famer too. and they will be the only thrash metal band to ever get that honor probably. Only megadeath is close to this group in that genre. If you want a great 3d concert this is it. And the blu ray has a stunning picture as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite serial ever on dvd!, 24 Feb. 2015
This is my favorite doctor who serial of all time. I saw all of this doctor's adventure's on tv in Alaska. Of all places. I got to see the whole third doctor daily after school. So his run was run in order and it was thrilling. This episode features a great story about doomsday and parallel universes. The dvd is outstanding and worth adding to your collection. I have about fifty of them so far. And they are all enjoyable but to me this is my favorite period of the show. The story is a long one , but it's inventive and very well done. It fits into that great seventies disaster tradition , that was also presented in the show "doomwatch'. Which is NOT out on dvd yet sadly. This was a long serial so expect lots of character shots and then you won't be disappointed. The picture is very good as they restored it for this video.


Silent Witness - Series 2 [DVD]
Silent Witness - Series 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Amanda Burton
Price: £5.10

5.0 out of 5 stars ONe of the better forensic shows, 9 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amanda burton was just as good in this second series. As she was in the first. Few uk tv shows last more than a few series. Sadly. But this one has lasted right up to the present (2015). Watching this now is like taking a time trip back to the middle 90's , which was far more primitive scientifically than today. The uk was at least by that time using film and not video tape anymore. This early episodes don't have the later slickness that became popular in forensic shows after CSI. came out. That show is due to be cancelled this year unfortunately after 15 seasons. This is still going and you can watch some excellent brit crime tv in this series. The picture looks very good as it was preserved quite well before it's dvd release.


KISS 40
KISS 40
Price: £8.30

4.0 out of 5 stars a decene kiss compilation set. the music is five star the amount of new songs is not., 13 Jan. 2015
This review is from: KISS 40 (Audio CD)
This is a good set of the music from kiss. However like many others I would like to see more unreleased songs from this band. You do get a whole second disc of those on the 'love gun' deluxe edition. This one has several live songs on it that were not released. So if you already have most of kiss's output then you will just be buying this for a few tracks. But if you don't have anything from this band this a very good compilation cd set . The sound is very good on the tracks here too. Most naysayers are right though that they need to put out more unreleased tracks instead of more compilations like this. But this was for their fortieth anniversary release. There last release 'monster' was very good I thought. So if you want some newer stuff from this band grab that one.


Space Invader (Ltd Digi)
Space Invader (Ltd Digi)
Price: £16.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace delivers with this one., 13 Jan. 2015
this is great melodic rock and almost every song is very good. This is the type of cd which doesn't try to be anything but FUN. If you want fun rock where ace tells you he's a space invader and then he lays down other songs like chasing girls. Then this one is for you. This isn't deep rock , it's all about a guy enjoying himself making hard rock. And this does rock. In fact I played it at a music store and the metal heads there thought it was very cool. And they usually like thrash only. So that just goes to show that ace can deliver the goods, and he does with this one. Most songs are solid traditional hard rock and that's what you want from ace or kiss or the scorpions or whoever. I wish ufo would deliver that again. And I love ufo. Grab this one if you love traditional hard rock or metal and you will have a big smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great 3d blu ray and a decent kids movie., 11 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a native 3d film. Which means they actually used a two camera system to make it. THAT is a very good thing The 3d blu ray is outstanding in that regard. This is based on the horrible henry books and it does a decent job of trying to capture them. Sort of like 'diary of a wimpy kid' , those books are huge the world over Only being beat by 'captain underpants' which will surely be made into a movie somedays This is a decent kids film and a great 3d blu ray. If you collect 3d films you will want this in your collection. I watched after watching 'the bubble'3d a allregion 3d blu ray that is for sale on this site. That one is a 1960's 3d film . And worth your money also.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great war film and blu ray., 11 Jan. 2015
This blu ray is outstanding. Forget the awful dvd And why is amazon STILL mixing dvd and blu ray reviews? that is not acceptable. It saves them money on bandwith but leaves us with reviews that are all messed up. This is a excellent movie about the famous bomber Memphis belle. In those days half the bombers were shot down so it was a big deal for them to make it to the end of their tour. British night bomber losses were also very high during the period. Someone needs to do a true story about a night bomber crew, in 3d for better effect. The blu ray looks very good and this was a major Hollywood release when it came out. It is also good in that unlike todays awful war movies where psychos are everywhere and there are few good soldiers this depicts the men as they were , decent men who just wanted to survive and defeat the Nazis. Now if they can make a war movie about today that is good that would help.

4.0 out of 5 stars a decnet found footage film., 6 Jan. 2015
as with most horror films , seeing this at a movie theater is much more effective than on your tiny tv. It was very effective and spooky there. Of course on tv you see a little screen in front of you instead of a giant one that adds to the picture. I would say that as much as I love my home theater if you are not going to the movies then you are missing out , especially concerning horror films. This one is a found footage type of movie. These are NOT my favorite type of horror films but we get several a year. Ever since the classic 'blair witch project' came out in 1999 that is. This one takes place deep in the catacombs beneath Paris and it's scary but also not as gory as it could have been. The blu ray is a good version of the film with a great picture. the acting is effective and this is a higher budget than most found footage films by a long shot So that is a plus here.

The Warrior And The Sorceress [1984] [DVD]
Dvd ~ David Carradine
Offered by FREETIME
Price: £8.48

4.0 out of 5 stars david carradine does a good job in this very low budget film., 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
david carradine lifts this one up. He was always a excellent actor. (rip). The story is a classic man with no name type. Where he gets inbetween two rival gangs. Only it takes place in the far past. The picture looks pretty good too. At least until we get a blu ray upgrade. after all dvd is a very outdated medium. This is a low budget film so don't expect high production values It's a low budget film and that's what you should expect to get.


What Have They Done To Your Daughters? [1974] [DVD]
What Have They Done To Your Daughters? [1974] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Giovanna Ralli
Price: £12.08

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the better giallos. slasher films of it's time., 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is one of the better giallos that came out in the midseventies. Giallo is a horror movie that features a slasher killer. Often they have nudity in these as well. But while that was shocking back then , we now have nudity everywhere so it's not a big deal. what makes this a good film is that we don't know who the killer is until the end. That makes it a classic giallo slasher. the Italians made over 400 giallos between 1969-79 , after which the genre died basically. But this one was made in the genres heyday and it's very well done. The picture is good on this dvd at least until we get a blu ray version. After all dvd is a very outdated medium . But at least this looks decent.
