5.0 out of 5 stars Worth your Consideration., 10 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'll be honest I've had this product in my Amazon basket for months and wasn't sure about the quality of the product and also some bad reviews previously posted.

I'm happy to say I took the plunge and I can report that this Laser Pen is great value for money and the quality of the device is of a very high standard.

I got the device primarily for entertaining my cat's with, which it does incredibly well. The Laser itself is very powerful and would be excellent for presentations and lectrures also.

The only complaint was the delivery time which doesn't lie with Amazon as it is through a third party company.

All said and done though if your looking for a cheap, good quality Laser Pen this one is definetley worth your consideration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spock Vs Q: Round 2, 10 Sept. 2012
A great 2 man show recorded as an audiobook starring fictional characters from the Star Terk Universe Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Q (John De Lancie).

The premise of the audiobook follows on from Spock and Q's first encounter but this time with a simple handshake the pair are transported to an Asteroid and have switched personalities in the process. The ensuing drama of how they solve their predicament leads to many humorous moments with Spock being boisterous and loutish and Q being logical and sensible.

This audiobook will most likely only appeal to Star Trek fan's, but if you do like the characters and require some light hearted comedy this audiobook might just be for you.

A great 2 man show recorded as an audiobook starring fictional characters from the Star Terk Universe Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Q (John De Lancie).

The premise of the audiobook is in the late 20th century an asteroid is on a collsion course with the earth and Spock has returned to earth to warn mankind of it's impending doom, during this Q appears and although he has the power to prevent the disaster he is disinclined to do so.

This audiobook will most likely only appeal to Star Trek fan's, but if you do like the characters and require some light hearted comedy this audiobook might just be for you.


TREKKIES
TREKKIES

5.0 out of 5 stars Boldly Going..., 29 Aug. 2012
This review is from: TREKKIES (DVD)
Trekkies is actually a really interesting documentary made in 1997 about the fans of Star Trek. It follows several people who have literally bult their lives around the show and it's culture.

My initial feeling before seeing this film was this might be an exercise in tedium and I might not be able to sit through it all, even though I like Star Trek myself. I actually found it really interesting and actually going funny laughing along with the people in the film rather than at them.

The film is directed by ex Next Generation cast member Denise Crosby and she is the one interviewing the subjects in the film who include not just the Trekkies themselves but also Cast & Crew members from all the various Star Trek series.

Trekkies as a film is compulsive viewing and also has a lot of heart and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes Star Trek or Documentaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming to take you away..., 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Finally after many years Apple Corps have released on DVD and Blu Ray the Beatles 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour!

The film in my opinion is a great example of where the Beatles were creatively at this point in 1967 having just released the album Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club and experimenting with Hallucinogenic Drug's and Eastern Religions. Because of this the narrative of the film is very loose and if you are after a coherent and well scripted film you may well be disappointed.

The film excels however in the music which is just excellent and includes the only performance of the classic `I am The Walrus'. The Beatles are great in this film playing caricatures of themselves as in `A Hard Night's and `Help!', also the supporting cast are quite unusual but add to the overall flavour of the film.

This special edition also contains a feature length commentary from Paul McCartney as well as other mini documentaries regarding the making of the film.

For any fan of The Beatles `Magical Mystery Tour' is an essential purchase and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Better all the time!, 23 Aug. 2012
Season 3 of Star Trek TNG builds upon the success of the first two seasons with improved storylines and a strong cast.

At this point in the series we're finally able to enjoy episodes featuring not just missions involving the whole crew but stories that centre around a central character such Data (The Offspring), Worf (Sins of the Father) and Captain Picard (Captains Holiday).

My favourite episodes in Season 3 is 'Yesterday's Enterprise' with an alternate present and the welcome albeit brief return of Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby). My second is 'Déjà Q' where the crew encounter Q once again with hilarious consequences, especially making Data experience laughter (Priceless!).

Episode List:

1.Evolution
2.The Ensigns of Command
3.The Survivors
4.Who Watches the Watchers
5.The Bonding
6.Booby Trap
7.The Enemy
8.The Price
9.The Vengeance Fatcor
10.The Defector
11.The Hunted
12.The High Ground
13.Déjà Q
14.A Matter of Perspective
15.Yesterdays Enterprise
16.The Offspring
17.Sins of the Father
18.Allegiance
19.Captains Holiday
20.Tin Man
21.Hollow Pursuits
22.The Most Toys
23.Sarek
24.Ménage à Troi
25.Transfigurations
26.The Best of Both Worlds Part 1

Star Trek TNG is in general one of the best Television Series ever and Season 3 doesn't disappoint, I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense, but gets results!, 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This workout DVD is in a word Intense, it get's results fast and will benefit you.

The first time I did the workout I was sick and shaking at the end of it, but the everyday afterwards my endurance and stamina got significantly better.

I highly recommend this DVD as it does what it says on the tin and if you persist in the regime you will see the benefits.

The only negatives are the dire music, Jillian's voice and pep talks between the routines are bearable at first but after 10 days on each workout you will need to turn the volume down and put your own music on.

Despite these minor points I highly recommend this DVD and it's at a bargain price here on Amazon.
