The Borgias - Season 2 [DVD]

2.0 out of 5 stars Not half as good as the Tudors, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Borgias - Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Great subject, but no it didn't do much for me and my wife. Not half as good and sparkling as the Tudors, or Rome. The fun of watching 'evil' characters is when you love 'm. And you're glad when the small roles do their things. Here's just from one murder to the next bed-scene, with a weak, humourless script and actors in trust of a director who thinks "wait till you see the edits."
It's the magic of movies and series: some 'have' it. The Borgia's don't.
I's an interesting time, so it won't harm to watch if you have the time, but don't put your expectations too high.

1.0 out of 5 stars this print white cover/photo is wortless, 4 Feb. 2012
This review is from: His Girl Friday [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
as my beloved amazon still doesn't throw out all the public domain-stinkers, once again a warning for this brandless print GMVS 1198, with a nice coloured photo on the cover, but a muddy print inside. Colombia has a good one, though it seems out of print at the moment. sometimes it's hard to get a nice old classic in your cabinet. good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars beware: piano or guitar, 3 May 2010
Great book, with the Stones singles A & B side, and precise outwritten lyrics for all verses. But I ordered too fast, and got the guitar & tab edition, while I would have liked the one for piano better. (humming: You can't always get what you want.)

1.0 out of 5 stars WE WANT A CLEAR STATE FOR YES OR NO SUBTITLES!!!!, 10 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cinema at it's best, dvd production at it's worse. 2 discs extra's and not even the main movie subtitled. For me too hard to follow without. Shame on Revolver Entertainment, and shame again on Amazon for not giving a clear state for yes or no subtitles. Boy, another disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars great movie, no subs, 6 Feb. 2010
Great movie of course, but shame on Second Sight for not giving a Janus movie the normal subs. I pray for the day Amazon gives us the possibilty to update product info with "No subs'. If I had only knew, I'd bought the criterion edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars no subtitling, 20 Jan. 2010
If amazon would only give us the chance to update product-information about subtitling - wich is not only important to the hard of hearing, but even to all (foreign) buyers we could avoid editions like these.

1.0 out of 5 stars this is no subtitling, 13 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stated as subtitled in different languages, but as often with Warner Brothers the songs are'nt in any language. As the songs do the story it's another one for the overfilled Hall of shame of subtitling misfits.
