Maxell DVD+R x 50 Pack in Spindle Pack by Maxell
1.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss?, 31 Aug 2014
I purchased a 50 pack from a large high street retailer based on the good brand name and price. In all the years I have burned DVD's, I could count a failure rate on one hand until I came to these discs. So far, out of 10 discs, They have failed to copy 60% of the time. The projects being burned all work when the brand of discs are changed.
Obviously a faulty batch so my suggestion would be to give them a miss at present.
Ruff-n-Tumble Serve-n-Sling Retractable Ball Throw&hellip by Ruff N Tumble
2.0 out of 5 stars Style over substance, 29 Aug 2014
Ours was purchased from the four letter auction site and not Amazon (sorry!) and it was hoped that being extendable, it would achieve longer distances than the inexpensive ball throwers but with no additional effort. If the ball supplied sits deep into the claw end, the distance obtained is abysmal due to it being held too tightly, it has to be no more than half way in. In use, the ball also has to be 'released' earlier otherwise it strikes the ground too close to the user, limiting the distance obtained. All in all, it seems to be a case of style over substance and not a product I would wish to recommend.
Riddick [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Vin Diesel
Riddick [DVD] DVD ~ Vin Diesel
Perhaps stung by some of the criticism levelled against Chronicles, we return to the style and basic storyline of Pitch Black and Riddick is none the worse for this. What you get is entertaining Sci Fi with Vin Diesel doing what he does best. The first 20 minutes details his resurrection from the second instalment which helps give continuity.
This film is certainly not deep and meaningful, but is relatively full of action, with reasonable special effects and good characterisation by the cast. If you enjoyed Pitch Black, this should be right up your street but be aware that it contains strong language and violence.
