F In Exams: The Best Test Paper Blunders: The Funn&hellip by Richard Benson

1.0 out of 5 stars Clearly a sham, 19 July 2013
I have been a secondary teacher for 25 years. There is no way the 'answers' to test questions in this book are genuine student answers. The greater part by far have been invented; maybe by the author Richard Benson, maybe by other people whose jokes he collected from other sources.

If I can't sell water with sugar and artificial taste for 'orange juice', then why can someone else sell self-invented jokes for student-made 'test paper blunders'? If lying on the package of a product is forbidden, then why is it allowed to sell books that advertise lies?

If you buy this product expecting blu-ray quality, you will be sorely disappointed. This is simply a (bad) DVD quality movie blown up (badly) to 1080p. It looks bad. Its colours are flatter than a VHS tape, its sharpness is nonexistent, its audio sounds like it has been recorded on my little brother's cassette tape recorder in 1980, including the tape hiss.

The movie opens with a close-up of a high heel shoe, then a female corpse with fake blood and a razor in her hand. If you like that, this is your type of movie. Eighties music at its worst.

1.0 out of 5 stars Must be a mistake, 25 July 2012
I agree with the many reviewers who have noted the terrible picture quality of this release. It is simply not possible that a person who knows his job creates this monstrous 1080p blu-ray 'quality' intentionally. It must be a mistake. Even with two eyes closed I can tell how terribly overblown the transfer is: ridiculous contrasts, ridiculous compression errors, ridiculously unsharp, infested with noise. The MGM Blu-ray is much better, so I going to have to acquire this and keep this release only for the 'extra's' (one star).
