Time Crisis Razing Storm - Move Compatible (PS3)
Time Crisis Razing Storm - Move Compatible (PS3)
Offered by SamuelUKMedia
Price: 10.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Well, great game.. but.., 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Time Crisis games are great, but it's Deadstorm pirates which also is on the disc, is what made this one of the best discs for use with move (in combination with the sharp-shooter of the pistolgrip)..
The biggest problem with the Time Crisis 4 version (which is also on the disc) I had , was the 2 playermode which was splitscreen instead of fullscreen like Time Criss Razing Storm or Deadstorm pirates.. It's much more fun to just blast with 2 players on one screen than having the screen split into 2 seperate small screens.. but still a fun game..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great with deadstorm pirates, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I LOVE shooting with this at my big projection screen.. It's really a blast to play the game Deadstorm pirates (which is on the 'Time Crisis: Razing storm' disc, also a great game to play)..
Also the Shoot is great..
Only whish there were more on-rail shooters from the arcade ported to the PS3..

5.0 out of 5 stars great charger for nexus 5, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it's a perfect little round charger, it does what it needs to do.. It makes a bleep when you put the phone on it and charges.. I can even leave my nexus 5 in it's Adore June sleeve and put it on the charger and it still charges..

got it from XCSOURCE which did ship it to the Netherlands in perfect condition and it arrive well within the expected time.. (most other sellers I tried wouldn't ship a charger, but I'm glad I found XCSOURCE, thanx)..

4.0 out of 5 stars great sleeve, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sleeve arrived in perfect condition and on time.

The sleeve itself is quite soft, and the Nexus 5 fits perfectly, well maybe a bit tight but I guess that will loosen over time (it already isn't as tight as the day it arrived (but still a good fit))..
In comparison to the cheap leather pouch I had before, you really don't notice the phone in your pocket due to it being completely soft.
I can leave the sleeve on when putting it on the cheap qi wireless charger so even that is handy..

Only gripe I have with it is getting the phone out, you have to 'squeeze' the bottom to get the phone out.. So maybe I would suggest if possible to add a pull tab, but I guess that would be a problem as the sleeve is completely soft, but if possible it would be a good fix making it worth 5 stars..

all in all I'm very satisfied with this sleeve, it replace the cheap leater pouch (which also was good) I only had for a couple of days, I love the soft feel of the sleeve.


Once Upon A Time In China And America [DVD]
Once Upon A Time In China And America [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jet Li
Offered by Global_Deals
Price: 1.50

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining enough.., 3 Aug 2011
The story itself is very bad, if there even is a real story.
My advice would be to watch the 4:3 letterbox original version (and zoom in so the side blackbars disappear but not the upper/lower blackbars).. Why? because the 'anamorphic' widescreen seems to be taken from a 4:3 broadcast tape and 'pan & scanned' to 16:9, so you'll miss A LOT of picture (the 4:3 broadcast tape is already a Pan & scan from the movie), yes the picture quality is a bit less (not much though) and you get some funny chinese/english subtitles and only 2.0 sound, but at least you get to see all the moves as they where filmed..
It's sad they didn't make a good transfer like the hongkong legends versions, but I also see there is a german BLURAY of this movie out now, so I would advice you to go and buy that one instead..

For some reason they never released parts 4 & 5 (where the main character wasn't played by Jet Li), but then again you won't feel like you missed anything..

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting movie, but quality is bad, 12 May 2010
This review is from: Full Alert [DVD] (DVD)
Maybe it was because I was tired, or maybe the movie was just rather dull. When there's action, it is great. but the story itself is rather flimsy and not all that compelling..

the dvd says 'Widescreen', but I could have known that it wouldn't be an anamorphic release as MIA seldom puts a good HK release on the market.. So it's 4:3 letterboxed (1.85:1), it has subtitles burned in (the subtitles are in the picture and not in the black bars, so you can zoom in to get rid of the black bars.. It does have chinese audio so that's a plus..

If you are a HK fan you'll propably like this movie even with the 'bad' quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars not really special, 27 Sep 2009
This review is from: Cheap Killers [DVD] (DVD)
It's a common story which we have seen a thousand times by now. It certainly isn't a waste of time IMHO..

It might have gotten my attention a bit more if this dvd release was a bit better, as always with Mia video entertainment releases this dvd is also of a low quality: 4x3 letterbox (1.85:1), the subtitles are burned into the video (but is completely inframe, so zooming in to 16x9 will keep the subtitles), the image itself isn't really something to brag about, and is about VHS quality (but watchable, and no VHS distortions or something). The sound is also nothing to write about, explosions sounds very muffled not even above conversation level..

So if this movie really had a decent dvdrelease, anamorphic and good sound, it really could have been a great view, but Mia video entertainment screwed up again (I think they just go for cheap VHS-masters and put them on dvd) and therefore it doesn't make it a real fun watch..

If you're not a fan of these kind of movies, just skip it, if you are a fan of these kind of movies buy it if its under or about one pound (excluding delivery), otherwise it's just a waste of money..

4.0 out of 5 stars great movie, 21 Sep 2009
This review is from: Moon44 [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of those 'old' 80's sci-fi movies with great sets and models.. The story is a bit thin but it is a fun movie..

This dvd of the movie has a anamorphic widescreen (2.35:1) image, and the sound is also good, BUT during the movie there is a few minutes of sound missing (which ofcourse is annoying, and even more annoying since there are no subtitles available, so no idea really what is said during that time)..
But I think when it comes to image and (the rest of the) sound it is the best release available at this time... hopefully someday they will release a bluray version of this wonderfull sci-fi movie...

3.0 out of 5 stars fun movie, 11 Sep 2009
This review is from: Sharp Guns [DVD] (DVD)
As always with hongkong movies, the story is thin but the action is fun.. so it this one..

This is definitly a MIA release, which means 4x3 letterbox, this one is 4x3 (1.85:1).. the subtitles aren't the best, but they are optional (but you have to turn them on/off via the 'extra features' menu.. One nasty thing with this release is also that on the left side of the screen there is a red line visible, it remain outside the videoframe, but when watching the movie on my beamer I saw the line, if you 'zoom' in on the 1.85:1 frame the line should not be visible anymore..

The movie is definitly it's 1 pound worth.. LOL.. even though it's just 4x3 letterbox.... Why MIA releases these movies in 4x3 letterbox is beyong me..

3.0 out of 5 stars fun movie, 28 Aug 2009
This review is from: Rich And Famous [DVD] (DVD)
Just watched this dvd this week..
There are 2 versions on this disk:
- 4:3 pan&scan english dubbed
- 16:9 1.85:1 cantonese with english subs

I can confirm that the english subs are very bad, just as the other reviewer mentioned.. Even though it was a bit annoying sometimes, you can follow the story/dialog with the subs..
The picture quality (16:9 version) wasn't like new dvd's or something but I must disagree with the other reviewer about being as good as VHS, I think the image was decent for this release.. Ofcourse if it had been better mastered and decent subtitles it would have been a much better experience, but my guess is that this is and will be the best release for coming years..

The funny thing was, there are some publishing stills on the disk with scenes that aren't in the movie (maybe in the 4:3 english cut, but certainly not in the 16:9 cantonese version)..

I payed 0.98 pounds (excluding delivery to the Netherlands) for it, and I found it to be worth it's money..

But don't expect big action sequences with chow yun fat as he isn't the main actor in this movie (he does have some action scenes, and he's certainly in the movie with a bigger role). But plenty enough hong kong action....
