Resident Evil: Retribution (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [2012] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Milla Jovovich
Price: £6.00

3.0 out of 5 stars In places its residential., 19 Dec. 2013

If you like any of the Resident Evil movies or all of them, you'll like this one too. I like the movies, the stories aren't the best at times, the acting is fine and they all look good in HD.
This film brings back a lot of the cast from the previous films, not necessarily as the same character(s).
Milla is her reliable self Alice. The picture is shot well, the cgi is great and the sound rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Joyland, not always a happy place..............., 19 Dec. 2013

A short novel by Stephen King and one of his newest too. A story that starts out as simple, a writer looks back on a summer long gone when he worked at a fairground to get over a broken heart and grew up somewhat and discovered love and murder sometimes stand side by side.
A good story that builds slowly, encourages you to take in the time and place and the main characters dreams and reality. If you have never read a Stephen King story before, this is a good place to start. Its a thriller mystery with a little supernatural thrown in and love lost and found. The stories descriptive narrative and easy going style draws you in slowly, setting the scene, the people and time. A look back at youth, with some hindsight. Personally I enjoyed this story, all King's trademarks for mystery are present. A bit too short though for my liking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow but good., 10 Dec. 2013

The series looks and sounds great on Blu-ray. The actual stories/series could have been a little better. For me it was kinda slow in places and I don't think enough was shown about the terminators. The acting is good. I didn't like the way the series ended though and I really hate that there wasn't another one.

Good story and acting. Follows on somewhat from the tv series, shame that there hasn't been another one or film.
If you liked the series you should like the movie. Some sad parts in it though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story., 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the nicest of stories but quite realistic and gritty in its portrayal of spies and betrayal.
The film looks fine on dvd. Richard Burton excels as always, he is very dire in the role.
Recommended because movies like this don't get made today and neither are the actors.

4.0 out of 5 stars What's the fuss....................., 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I rented this film sometime ago and I enjoyed it. I have now purchased it on Blu-ray and I do not understand a lot of the negative comments it received at the time of it's release. The story is fine, the acting is fine, the picture and sound are both excellent, the special effects are amongst the best ever. I recommend the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie., 12 Sept. 2013
Clint Eastwood's directorial debut and what a film he produced. A western about survival, war , revenge ,love and redemption.
One of the best westerns in my humble opinion. I'm sure most people know the story by now and probably have it on dvd or vhs, but the Blu-ray version beats them hands down. The picture quality is really good as is the sound. Well worth upgrading. And its a good price too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good price, great listen!, 12 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Surfin' 1962 (Audio CD)
The sound quality on both cd's is pretty good, disc 1 is the original album "Surfin' Safari"(tracks 1-12) with bonus tracks (13-22). The bonus tracks include the 7" version of "Surfin'", 2 songs by Rachel and The Revolvers, 2 songs by Bob and Sheri and 2 songs by Kenny and The Cadets, these songs most Beach Boys fans will already know of and even own already. The names of the musicians and what instruments they played is given, as are the recording dates.
CD 2 contains 33 tracks and all are various takes of five of the songs from the "Surfin' Safari" album and the songs "Land Ahoy", "Cindy, Oh Cindy" and from the "Surfer Girl" album, "The Surfer Moon" included because of Bob and Sheri's version. The outtakes, tracking sessions are interesting to hear and sound fine, considering how old they are and how cheap this release is. The booklet is minimal, no pictures. Some of the tracks(13,15 and 16) on disc 1 were previously on the "Lost & Found 1961-1962" cd, though maybe not of this quality.
All in all worth getting if you are more than a casual fan.

This review is from: Elvis In Person (Audio CD)
Sound is great, forget the fact you may have heard these songs before or have them on another live album, you NEED this one. The sound is so clear, Elvis sounds so fresh, when I heard the album first I was like wow, this is really good and I have good few Elvis albums on cd.
Get it and enjoy, your ears won't believe it.

8 Classic Albums Plus Bonus Singles [Audio CD] Elvis Presley
Price: £6.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it., 12 Sept. 2013

Elvis Presley what is left to be said about the man and his music, his voice.
The albums on these cds are good and some of his earliest, but the sound is great. The extra singles are good too.
For the price this collection is very cheap. No collection should be without it.
