3.0 out of 5 stars Let down, 11 Aug 2012
I absolutely adore this film - I've read and taught the book several times. Enjoyed the 'original' film as a young boy in the cinema, and revisited it several times as an adult. I was looking forward to this enhanced version. The new, added-on scenes are really worth it (I loved them), but but but, dear God (or should I say Mr Coppola?) what have you done in sound editing?!?! The new music score completely ruins the experience. It's not just the fact, that much of the background music now 'comments' on the narrative, but many times it's just achieves the opposite in terms of atmosphere. And, worst of all, it's just mixed WAY TOO LOUD! So sad. I just to always become very emotionally… Read more
The Goonies/Police Academy/Gremlins [DVD] [2006] <b>DVD</b> ~ Steve Guttenberg
5.0 out of 5 stars 1980's bonanza, 11 Aug 2012
This package offers easy acces to a free ride own memory lane, or a look of a time gone by. All three films offer reasonable quality, and - more importantly - guarranted thigh-slapping laughter. As a film, it surprised that I found Gremlins to look the most dated, and Police Academy to be the funnier. It's just hilarious and sometimes a bit raunchy even. the Goonies is an adventure and an interesting look at some future stars' humble beginnings. You can't get better value for money. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Miller mayhem, 11 Aug 2012
Warren Miller's Wintervention is made up of vignettes and short chapters of massive free riding shots and incredible mountain footage as well as tons of heli-shots of skiers and boarders doing mind-bogling stuff in parks and basically anywhere. For those of you who know what you've come to expect, you won't be let down. This latest installment from WM has it all. Stylish camera work and excellently balanced music (equally hard hitting songs and more mellow tunes). If you want to escape into the great white open for an hour or so this a brilliant buy.
