Gamera: War of the Monsters Collection [DVD] [US Import]
Gamera: War of the Monsters Collection [DVD] [US Import]
Dvd ~ Artist Not Provided
Offered by Fulfillment Express
Price: 5.40

3.0 out of 5 stars value for money but poor picture, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set contains 6 of the original gamera films and is great value for money. My only problem is that the picture and sound quality can vary from film to film. I like the films but wish they could have digitally remastered them but despite saying so on the box they're not. Grab them cheap if you're a giant monster fan and have plenty of popcorn ready.

Dvd ~ Lee Van Cleef
Offered by RAREWAVES USA
Price: 2.27

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your money, 30 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set was purchased by me as like the other reviewer I'm a great spaghetti westerns fan. I'm sad to say that this was the worst purchase I've ever bought. The picture is terrible, the sound is terrible and instead of widescreen they look like they've been cut so badly that peoples faces don't always show properly on the tv. I've recently bought storm rider which is another version of the grand duel and that version was in widescreen. Avoid as there are other better copies out there. Save your money for those and don't bother with this inferior box.


Shaolin [DVD]
Shaolin [DVD]
Dvd ~ The Shaolin Collection
Price: 24.99

2.0 out of 5 stars good films but rubbish picture quality, 8 Jun 2014
This review is from: Shaolin [DVD] (DVD)
This and the other shaolin collections are produced by Hollywood east and to put it bluntly they're crap. The film's picture quality is like watching a bad vhs copy. In fact that's what they are as you get bbfc credits at the beginning of the films. Essentially these films are knock off dvds. Avoid Hollywood east at all costs unless you can get them for pennies and don't mind crap picture quality and sound. There are probably better copies of the films out there if you take the time to look for them.


Red Hawk - Weapon Of Death [1995] [DVD]
Red Hawk - Weapon Of Death [1995] [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the modern anime, 17 Mar 2012
This anime has actually got a very good story to it. The characters are well developed and the running time is quite good. If you like to see films like streetfighter then this has some elements of that in it. I enjoyed it and if you can get it for cheap you probably won't regret it. Well worth a look.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low budget junk, 16 Mar 2012
This review is from: Alien Species [DVD] (DVD)
This film is another low budget film that you should only watch if you are either desperately bored or like troma movies. I had it given to me but as soon as i started watching it i was instantly turned off by it. Please avoid this like the plague and get something better with your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Playboy british style, 16 Mar 2012
This review is from: Rachel Ter Horst [DVD] (DVD)
This isn't a bad dvd. As its a british Playboy release you dont get all the flashy stuff that you get on the american dvd's. Rachel ter horst is absolutely gorgeous and i only have one complaint and that is its a bit too short. Get it cheap if you can and you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst film I've ever watched, 24 Nov 2010
I must admit that I agree with most of the negative reviews that have been put up already. This film is terrible and that is despite it having some very good actors in it. The story isn't anything that hasn't been done better by other films, the acting is wooden and not even a glimpse of katee sackhoff's breast from the side could redeem this film in any way. I hope that the director of this never does anymore films as I don't want to suffer watching anymore bad films. Uwe boll's stuff was bad but this is worse. Great idea but done badly and by actors who obviously will have second thoughts about working with such a director or story ever again. Avoid like the plague as there are better low budget films like this out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic series, 20 Nov 2010
This review is from: SALARYMAN KINTARO VOLS 1 -5 (DVD)
This series is ideal for those people who are looking for something a little different. The series follows single father and ex-biker gang leader kintaro as he struggles to make his mark in the world of big business. He soon starts dealing with the problems he comes across in his own unique way. This series is a great addition to any serious anime collectors list and at the prices you can get it for it's a great bargain. This was released by artsmagic and is probably the best thing they released before they went bust. I can't recommend this title enough so if you see it grab a copy while you still can.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game, 10 Nov 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This game is absolutely brilliant. It combines roleplaying and other genres into one massive game. I like the fact that you are free to roam about and do what you want as well as follow the story at your own pace. There is so much to do in this game and it's a shame that this game doesn't have the reputation that it deserves. Give it a try if you want something different instead of the usual final fantasy stuff.
