5.0 out of 5 stars Stopped my PS4 from sliding around on my glass unit ..., 9 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stopped my PS4 from sliding around on my glass unit every time I had to insert a disc etc. Also keeps a little bit more steady than when just standing on it's own. Simple product that does the job. For under £2 you can't go wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Professionals - All Region blu-ray import - Looks and Sounds great!, 26 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Professionals - All Region blu-ray import. It is indeed a Blu-ray, in case you're finding the conflicting info, cheap price and lack of picture confusing.

Looks and sounds great and has some decent special features. A steal at these prices.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Buddy Road Movie... with Zombies, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battery [DVD] (DVD)
A very low-budget movie (only $6,000) filled with ingenious ideas and some really good laughs. If you hate low budget for whatever reason this might not be for you, but you'll be missing one of the best Zombie films in years.
Just don't expect high spectacle, and be aware that these are old-school style zombies that move slow and it's no gore-fest, then you should enjoy. Highly recommended.

If you want special features you'll have to buy either the German or the U.S Blu-ray. The U.S Blu will have a commentary and a 90 minute making-of when it's released in October.

4.0 out of 5 stars UK Optimum Dvd Release details., 27 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maximum Overdrive [DVD] (DVD)
For anyone interested, here's the UK Optimum Releasing Dvd details;

Running Time : 94 minutes
Aspect Ratio : 2.35:1
Audio : English 5.1 Dolby Digital
Extras : Trailer

That's it! The back of the box says it's only 2.0 Stereo, but it only has 5.1 and nothing else. No other languages and no subtitles.
The picture and sound are good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks and Sounds Good. 1080p., 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Punisher [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
For those interested, the film is presented in full HD 1080p, and has optional 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. The back of the cover states it is only 1080i, but it also states the running time as 85 minutes, when it actually runs a little over 89 minutes. So clearly they made a mistake.

There are no extras.

So;

Running time - 89 minutes 5 seconds
1080p
2.0 English PCM Stereo
5.1 English DTS HD Master Audio
NO SUBTITLES

4.0 out of 5 stars UK Blu-ray, 7 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Legend [Blu-ray] [1985] (Blu-ray)
The UK Blu-ray features the European Theatrical cut of the film, running 93 minutes approximately and not 89 minutes as stated on the back cover. And also the director's cut running roughly 20 minutes longer, listed as a special feature.
The European cut has 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio. The Director's Cut has 5.1 Dolby Digital. Both sound great, although I think the Director's cut sounds better. Maybe the sound was remixed for the US Dvd or Blu-ray, but it sounds better to me.
Picture quality on the European cut is good, but not as good as the Theatrical cut from the US Blu-ray release. The Director's cut has a disclaimer about the source print and it's inferior quality, but it looks great anyway.
The only extra is the Theatrical trailer.

The Disc is Region ABC.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and flimsy., 7 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: EGG SHAPE COOKING TIMER
Reall cheap and flimsy. Every time I use it it feels like it's going to fall apart in my hands. It hasn't yet, but I can't see it lasting.
The bell could have been a little longer when it goes off.

But for the price, I suppose it's not too bad. I wish I'd waited, as I saw a better one for a pound in a shop recently.
