These did not come as shown in the photo, with small black claws that fall off easily. The product is not soft and comfortable, feeling fake and odd to wear. Do not recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, only one problem..., 3 Jan. 2014
My favourite series of films! The World's End is my favourite film ever! My only problem is how bad the blu ray is for Shaun of the Dead! The audio is way off. I'm going to buy this on DVD as well, because I can hardly hear the voices over the music...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not an Xbox Cooling Stand, but works fine, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isnt for the Xbox, as described, but a general notebook cooling stand. It works perfectly fine for the Xbox, but it still isn't an Xbox cooling stand and shouldn't be labeled as so. Still, as I said it works perfectly fine and makes no noise, so I don't have any complaints about the product's purpose.

4.0 out of 5 stars As described, but not as good as I expected due to things not being described, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant fun! Cool as hell! However, the battery life span is very short and the cost of the batteries used appears to be absurd! I didn't bother buying a second set of batteries. But they were a great amount of fun for a while and are as described, which is all that is needed to be a good product. I just expect for more details when buying a product, like a low battery life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not even near as good as The Three Doctors, 19 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good story. It has a great idea behind it and has the Doctors meet, but it could definitely be better! There's is lots of walking. Lots. The story is pretty straightforward, but I won't spoil that for you. It's a great concept and that alone makes this worth buying, but the title of the story promises something that doesn't really happen. I wanted a solid story with five Doctors (four, excluding Four) journeying across the Death Zone. I knew many fans find this one slightly disappointing, and I can now see why. The Doctors meet for a brief five minutes. They don't exactly need each other except for this mind battle (sort of like the weird Three Doctors one), they're all just shoved in the Death Zone and start wandering towards the Tomb of Rassilon, which is a tower in the middle. Sure, there is quite a bit of random action and some good mystery shoved in there, but it doesn't really feel like anything happened. I think they just needed an excuse to bring the Doctors together and then built it from there, which isn't the way to do it.

Apart from the Doctors hardly being together (and when they are, the conversations feel rather awkward) and all of the walking, it's not half bad. I see how it's mainly a nostalgia trip, but the way it's done is really quite good. Richard Hurndall is brilliant as the First Doctor, with only a few differences. It's a shame Tom Baker turned the offer down, it didn't feel quite right without him. It was a nostalgia trip with the Doctor who appeared in a third of the show missing! Ah well, it was fine without him.

So yeah, not close to as brilliant as The Three Doctors, but still pretty damn good! And the 25th Edition is certainly the one to get! I have a feeling The Day of the Doctor will be the best multi-Doctor story/anniversary yet, despite its length!

(Sorry if I make little sense, I'm feeling rather dizzy and tired at the moment. I'll look back at this in embarrassment tomorrow...)

2.0 out of 5 stars Ugh - Don't Buy This Pack, 20 Oct. 2013
This pack is terrible! The blu-ray has white lines flashing across the screen constantly! Such a waste of money! Get the blu-ray alone instead, this pack it so disappointing! I can't pay attention to my favourite film due to random flashing lines! Such bad quality, Amazon. So disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Worth Buying!, 6 Aug. 2013
Every series is amazing! Series one is good, series two is great, series three is almost perfect and series four is amazing! I rank the series like this:

1.) Children of Earth
2.) Miracle Day
3.) Series Two
4.) Series One

I can honestly say that they get better as they go along! The only problem with Miracle Day is that the episodes drag on slightly and every two episodes should just be one. Children of Earth was a perfect length!

Definitely buy this if you have got any of them yet! Completely worth it!

(Make another series before John Barrowman gets too old to play the immortal man Russell!)

5.0 out of 5 stars So Underrated!, 6 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Spider-Man Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
It annoys me how underrated these movies are! It's a terrible shame that Raimi didn't meet Sony's deadline! Apparently he wasn't happy with Spider-Man 3 but used the script due to Sony's deadline, I was happy with it but can see why others aren't. Raimi was never happy with any Spider-Man 4 scripts and so he just left and Spider-Man was discontinued! Very sad, but at least we have these three fantastic movies, which are cheap (as always, Amazon!) and brilliant on both DVD and Blu-ray! Definitely get this brilliant box set, you won't regret it!

3.0 out of 5 stars As Described, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because my dad finds Justin's music really irritating (apparently it goes right through him) and wasn't disappointed! It was exactly as described and great for children!

The problem I have is the price. The songs are very short so I think it's quite expensive. Can get band albums with longer songs for the same price, so this has annoyed me a tiny bit. But this wasn't for a child, so I can't really judge! Buy it if you want to, it's a perfectly good album...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story For A Great Price!, 6 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The special features are worth it and the errors of the previous release have been removed! The story is great and shows Seven at his best! I'm honestly surprised to see this so cheap! If you're a Doctor Who fan it is recommended that you get this (unless you've got a previous DVD of this and you're happy with it, that is)! Even if you're only a fan of New Who! This story is the first to be like New Who, yet it still manages to be like Classic Who! It's definitely great if you're trying to get into Classic Who! Seven certainly does get better as he goes along nd so does his stories, it makes me wonder why it was cancelled...
