Dcu: Batman: Dark Knight Returns [Blu-ray] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Peter Weller
Offered by supermart_usa
Price: £14.66

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding., 7 Nov 2014
Really don't know where to start, this movie is simply brilliant. Having read the book I could only hope that it was going to be treated with respect and was not disappointed at all. One of the greatest graphic novels ever has been given a very special animated treatment. Everything from the voice cast to the score is pitch perfect. Peter Weller is a very believable older Batman and nothing is left out from the book either. Gonna be hard for DC to better this !! Can't recommend this higher !

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pick Me Up! !, 19 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great price for all 7 seasons so far. The Big Bang Theory is a reliably funny show with smart humour and great characters. If you don't own it you really should do.

5.0 out of 5 stars 60th Anniversary blu ray., 17 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok I'm not gonna go into the film itself cause other folk have and you must know it anyway right ? But mention the new blu ray release which is not really that special comprising the same extras and a lobby card postcard it is'nt really a necessary purchase if you have the first blu ray release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential !, 17 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And just when you thought the whole phenomenon that is Breaking Bad could'nt get any better, they release a cd that is one of the better soundtracks I have heard ! This cd covers the first 3 seasons and has a 2010 date on the back despite it only being released in July this year. Essentially an awesome mix tape with not many familiar artists but such great tunes alongside selections of the score. Brilliant cd that is must have !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Second chance...., 1 Jun 2013
This review is from: David Bowie Box (Audio CD)
....to own this box set that before its rerelease was commanding over £100 on ebay. So its well worth snapping up now. The box itself is made of sturdy cardboard and is pleasant enough. However the individual albums in replica card sleeves are fiddly and may be subject to future damage. Care is needed when removing the discs contained in paper sleeves. But the discs, which may be the 2004 remasters, are sounding great and represent a stunning return to form for Diamond Dave. A form which really started with Black Tie White Noise, has continued to the present day with The Next Day. The 5 albums in this set are great individual albums each worthy of appraisal in its own right. Heathen is simply brilliant. The second discs offer plenty of B-Sides/remixes etc. Including Toy session songs well worth the entrance fee. All in all, worth buying. Peace out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a shame....., 12 Oct 2012
.....that Amazon allow people to review products months before release and those people then judge it on its packaging after seeing it on a monitor. They then spit out their dummies and give it an instant 1 star thus ensuring the product never receives a 5 star overall rating. I received my box on Monday (8-10-12) and I honestly think its the best designed box set I have seen. I wont go into the details as others have already. All I can say is if like me you LOVE Bond then you have to get this set. Yep, even if it means selling your old dvds and buying the set all over again. You will be rewarded. Uncut versions of CR,DAF and TLD are now included after the BBFC uprated the films after installing minor cuts. The extras are the same as the ultimate editions. The bonus disc is not really worth mentioning as it only includes things we have already seen plus (weirdly) the complete title sequences in order for some reason which takes up an hour which could have gone to better use surely. Some people have said the box has sustained minor damage in transit (bad luck) and/or will drop to bits over the years. Yeah?? Then take care of it then. The box is a sturdy set which requires love and care not morons.

James Bond 50 Years of Movie Posters
James Bond 50 Years of Movie Posters

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £28.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow., 8 Sep 2012
Around 1999 Boxtree published Tony Normands James Bond Movie Posters book which at the time was more than enough for Bondophiles everywhere. However 13 years have passed and dispite only 4 Bond movies have been made since then, a new 50th anniversary book was called for. This book obviously contains A LOT of posters you will already be familier with and a few rare unseen versions you won't have seen like TLD and LTK for instance. The book is very heavy and lavishly put together. Another reviewer states the lack of lobby cards etc from other countries which I agree with is a disappointment but an inclusion would probably mean a book so big and heavy that you could take it to the gym with you !! That asides, you also get 2 reprints about A4 size of Dr. No and Octopussy which may require framing on my part ! Worth the money but if you own the Boxtree book you may want to browse a copy first.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need this., 28 Aug 2012
This review is from: Moving Pictures (Audio CD)
Try the remasters they are fantastic !! Anyway back to this album, it serves as a great intro to Rush who are not an easy band to get into (trust me it took me years) due to their varied array of styles and changing genres of music over the years. Heralding what would become their "synth period" this album is simply stunning and is followed by the equally great album Signals. Tom Sawyer, Limelight and Red Barchetta are the hits but Camera Eye and Witch Hunt are standouts for me on an album that just wont miss !!!!! Buy It Now.

Do not buy this "film" as it is such a cheap and nasty film made by morons who might have had $20 to rub together and decided to try to make a film. It is not even watchable. Avoid.

5.0 out of 5 stars REGION FREE., 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First things first. The films are great.
Now the transfer for Bullitt and The Cincinnati Kid are not the best. The Getaway however looks great. The sound mixes are quite poor but apt for the age of the movies.
Here's where things get weird. The Getaway disc menus are all in Japanese (or Chinese, not sure)which makes selecting things a little like russian roulette. The Cincinnati Kid has a Making Of which can be highlighted but not selected ??!! Very annoying as I have very little footage of behind the scenes material for this film. But these strange niggles aside, the films in a 3 disc package represent great value for money.
