2.0 out of 5 stars ....Poor Design not Quite Thought Out Enough...., 26 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the 360 degree rotating feature is handy the fact that you cannot fold the cover back when using your I-pad is a bit of an inconvenience & should have been thought out better. It also seems that when closed the case is slightly open so does not shut down the I-pad properly so could & will drain your battery, other makes of cases have a magnet in the case that closes it properly & keeps the cover protecting the I-pad at all times. Plus there was NO free stylus included with my case as promised, so all in all not pleased so it will be returned to Amazon for a refund.

When they arrived I started to put them together & straight away noticed they have been incorrectly marked for DVD storage by Amazon, they are for CDs only so be aware when thinking of purchasing them or you may end up with the wrong size like me.....

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Clock, 4 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An attractive alarm clock that's simple to use you just put the AA battery in the back & that's it. It has got a very quiet movement no noticeable tick at all so is ideal for the bedroom but in my mind the best thing is the on/off button for the alarm is on top of the clock like it should be if you have an alarm clock, not at the side or at the back which so many makers nowadays seem to do. All in all an excellent purchace well worth buying if you need a new alarm clock....😃👍

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Miss This Film, 1 Dec. 2014
Having just bought this from the States where it is now for sale, this is one of those feel good films that is a pleasure to watch you will not be disappointed. The Blu-ray is multi region so can be viewed on British Blu-ray players with no problem so don't wait till March for the British release import it now to have an enjoyable film to watch over the coming months.....

3.0 out of 5 stars its like they ran out of film & thought oh that ..., 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Based on the dabbawallah system, delivering to men at work the lunch prepared by their wives in containers. The story is about a wife in a unhappy marriage who prepares her husbands lunch everyday, its collected & somehow its delivered to the wrong person, they start writing to each other via the lunchbox & a relationship starts to develop, the story is a little slow but the ending is the biggest let down, flat, its like they ran out of film & thought oh that will be OK but that's NOT how I would have portrayed it. Shame in my eyes anyway.......

3.0 out of 5 stars the trouble with sequels is they are more often than not no where as good as the original film, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh dear, the trouble with sequels is they are more often than not no where as good as the original source film, this is a case in point with Ironclad 2. Battle scenes are OK, very "gory" as in the 1st film, both directed by the same person, but in my opinion lacking the one main ingredient A STAR NAME to sell the film & this is why it probably went straight to "video". Shame.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, Poor & Poor, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clochemerle [DVD] (DVD)
Thanks Amazon, received this on the 2nd.November just before its release due date that's the good bit now I come to the bad bit. This has got to be one of the WORST DVD releases in terms of quality I have seen in quite a while, i know what other customers will say it was made over 40yrs ago blah! blah! blah! but the cover photo & others on the reverse, on the DVD sleeve, is as clear as its going to get & you DO get excellent series on DVD from 40/50 yrs ago I know because I have some myself. We the DVD/collector have been waiting a good few years for this series to be released onto DVD, now I can see why it has never appeared & why NO Blu-ray release was announced. It has got a lot of grain, scratches, the video stock it was filmed/recorded on is poor quality because this cannot have been filmed on film if it was then it must have been stored in a dustbin. Seems like, because of the poor quality, it was transferred from poor VHS tape onto DVD, & to produce a quality Blu-ray product for release would have cost too much in restoration & I don't think the quality was there to restore, which is a shame, because anything would have been better than this sorry excuse for a release. RLJ Entertainment (never heard of them) who released this should be ashamed of themselves this is not good enough!! this is just cashing in on the Christmas DVD market.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different Book? or the Same, 3 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having just received this book something strange. It has a different illustration on the cover to the one shown & a different author but has the correct ISBN number(according to Amazons info.), the cover of the book is the same as their Fred Dibnah edition the Dibnah book having approx. 26 less pages & a short piece about Fred, other than that they ARE very similar books same pictures, same words. So BEWARE if you already own the Fred Dibnah edition.
