Fight Club [Blu-ray] [1999]
Fight Club [Blu-ray] [1999]
Dvd ~ Edward Norton
Price: 7.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic film, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A genuinely classic film. It's uniqueness and panache will grip you from the start and guide you through an ever deepening and more complex story; layering up the excitement to the film's crescendo.

It's a film that you should not miss and one that will bring you back time and again to look for those hidden messages.

Excellent story very well told through the medium of film. The Blu-ray is spot on and a perfect medium to convey this story to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks like the Starship Enterprise and boldly brings you the signal you require., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Looks a bit old style but the top aerial can be folded flat to improve signal as well as the "bunny ears" which can be adjusted to get a better signal. It picked up all of the channel first try on a low power setting. This might be because I'm in a strong signal area or it might be because this is a good aerial. It's advised that you don't ramp up the power too high as that in itself can cause the signal to deteriorate, so start at no power and slowly increase to test each setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars After the 3D failure of Clash of the Titans the demi-god came back fighting., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wrath of the Titans 3D is far superior in quality to the failed 3D on Clash of the Titans. This is because CotT tried to create a faux 3D effect in post production and it failed miserably. However, WotT was filmed using 3D cameras and is therefore far superior. I challenge you not to flinch when the burning hot lava is sprayed at you ;)

It's a good action romp and nice 3D that works well. The story isn't up to much but you're there for the adventure ride not the acting, and it's an all thrills ride that is improved with 3D. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars British History most will not be fully aware of., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Spirit of '45 [DVD] (DVD)
I was astounded to find I was clearly not up on my political history of Britain. The movement to create the NHS and Welfare State showed a dynamic enthusiasm from the working class like which has never been witnessed in more recent times. I feel it's a great shame we no longer seem to have the same enthusiasm to defeat Privatisation and Poverty and push for a more egalitarian society as this DVD shows that our parents and grandparents did. I lovely DVD, well presented, filled with information that is often not presented to us thesedays. This is a glorious history that has been buried under the enthusiasm for all things Thatcher and greedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the biggest experience., 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had the DVD version but I saw it at the cinema in iMax 3D so not being able to watch in 3D at home was a disappointment. After recently purchasing a 3D TV and Blu Ray Player Prometheus had to be one of my first choice 3D movies. Ridley Scott has put a lot into the visual effects, perhaps a shame he didn't put more into the storyline like some explanations but hey. The movie is slick and looks great on my TV. I'd recommend this film for those who want a more immersive 3D experience, it doesn't improve the storyline, but it makes it more watchable. ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchased a 3DHD TV unfortunately despite it's many feature it only had 2 HDMI slots so I was forced to look for an alternative way to hook up the 3D Blu ray Player, The Sky+ Box and the Xbox. This was bought good value for money and had good reviews. I have not encountered any problems with it and fully expect it to continue as such.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best purchase EVER!, 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had always thought Gamer Mice to be expensive but this model is a great price and looks awesome. The 1-12 buttons are easy enough to reach with my left thumb, and the left, right and scroll wheel buttons have a nice smooth click action that isn't harsh but firm enough to let you know you have clicked. I play World of Warcraft and an habitual "clicker" this Razer Naga could well be the cure. Great mouse, great quality, great price - highly recommend this mouse. Installation is done via the Razer website so no CD's to load onto your computer and (as my computer is) works on a Mac as well as the standard PC. The mouse is also light and small enough for people who don't have massive hands and works well on the desktop as it does in MMO games.

This review is from: Phillips Lovage Cordial 5.3% 70cl
Most people outside of the West Country might struggle to understand what you mean when you say "Lovage and Brandy is great"
because they don't sell the stuff outside of the West Country unless you're lucky. Thankfully I found that it was available via Amazon after I ad recommended it to a friend. Phillips Lovage Cordial is Love in a Bottle. x It's sweet and alcoholic and mixes well with spirits.

3.0 out of 5 stars It does the job but a little shoddy, 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this to be like the price, cheap. It does what it's suppose to do but a little attention to detail wouldn't have gone a miss. Such as the way that it proves to be almost impossible to get the iPhone back out of the plastic clip without a really struggle and a very real danger of damaging the case and/or the iPhone. There was a piece of leather that had not been stuck down properly and had torn and flapped over, and although didn't interfere with the case itself it just made it look shoddy. The small bullet-like stylus pen was adequate, but I wasn't impressed by the attachment that held it to the iPhone via the audio socket. This prevents usage of the audio socket without detaching the pen, which can easily be lost. I'd have preferred it to have been attacked to the case itself. The screen protector was instantly rejected after it left big air-bubbles when applied, but maybe that was down to me rather than the protector itself. The screen wiping cloth was very small and could only be used by wrapping around my finger.

Saying all that the price is cheap and to complain too harshly is churlish as you get more than enough for your money. I'd advise people to invest a bit more and get a better wallet. But if you're not bothered about the accessories and just want a nice study wallet then you can't go wrong for the price.
