3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enjoyable movie, with a number of likable characters (even the bad guys), fast-paced dialogue (subtitles on are recommended for non-English viewers), and an impressively confident Travolta - who plays the role that suits him completely. Mind you, this is no Oscar winning movie, but it is entertaining. The soundtrack is good too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time killer, 22 Jan 2011

This review is from: Be Cool [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Not as good and smart as "get shorty", slightly worn out, however this does help kill time, also for the fast-paced dialogue. There is not much of a story, despite it is based on a novel, and sometimes it really slows down (e.g. the stage shows by the singer could easily be removed). The number of side roles that actually provide a good performance should be noted. Finally, it is remarkable how Travolta manages to get to the end without being shot or punched.

2.0 out of 5 stars only partially happy, 11 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a Powershot for many years, one of the first, and was very happy about it. That's why I decided to go for this. However, I found it as slow as my first one when turning it on, in between shots, or reviewing pictures. No improvement was made. I could live with that although a bit disappointed. What I like less however is the colour quality, which is on the cold side. I used to like Canon cameras just because they give on average warmer tones. The end result is that I feel like using my old Powershot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 25 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a very good buy - excellent sound quality, sufficient power to blast off a large living room, the distortion knob on position 2 gives already sufficient distortion (and there are still 2 positions). Plus, it does not take too much room and has a vaguely classic look.

4.0 out of 5 stars on what people feel, not on what they do, 19 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In The Bedroom [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Adding to the plot already described above, this movie is - rather rare for an America movie - on what people say and feel, more than on what they do. There is also a common tread related to how justice may bizarrely work, whereas someone may kill in cold blood and just pay with a few years in jail. This may indeed trigger "private justice" - call it revenge - which someone may find justified.
The movie is good, to the point that the one does not notice the very slim soundtrack. Despite its length, I managed it to see it in one go - which means a lot to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent album, but it is complete?, 18 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sid & Nancy (Audio CD)
Nothing to add to what has been said about the movie itself, the performance by Gary Oldman, and this soundtrack. Which is excellent and can be played over and over. However, I wonder if it really does include all of the songs. I have somewhere the original vinyl album and I should find the time check. I am under the impression something is missing. Anyway, as I said, excellent music and perforrmers - go for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars not what I expected, 18 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is not what I expected, perhaps I was misled by the Amazon's description of the content. This is very mellow music, which can hardly be considered linked to early rock wave: nothing wrong with that, but be aware!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 18 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trip [DVD] (DVD)
There is a bit of truth in all other reviews. The movie is low-budget and dates back to the sixties, so it would not be fair to expect high tech special effects. I find these anyway quite good in so far the viewer gets a pretty good the feel for the LSD induced allucinations. It is also true that the movie may be boring at time - as any movie aimed at describing someone tripping, I would suspect. The script is not overwhelming, but what else would one expect by the subject? It think this movie should be seen in the context it was made, and enjoyed for what it can bring - never mind Peter Fonda dressed in white running in a forest being chased by black knights.

This review is from: Wassup Rockers [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
Not much to add to the summary found here, the soundtrack is really enjoyable to those who like modern punk music. At times the movie is slow and even boring (e.g. long skating scenes, not particularly fancy either), the key scene where the whole philosophy is displayed is that with the two kids talking on the bed in the house of the uptown girls. Anyway it makes up for an evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleasant music, 9 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Most Of The Animals (Audio CD)
Pleasant yet with a dab of punk/ rock if one listens carefully. (In fact, I find the Fuzztones have taken inspiration from a couple of tunes).
Highly recommended to all.
