5.0 out of 5 stars Censor baiting from the start? Thought provoking and unsettling, 18 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have rewatched Shivers and Dead Zone and picture and sound quality are better than (bargain basement) dvd copies I had.
Rabid was my favourite Cronenburg till DZ, (then each one after impressed until and including History of Violence, since which I have missed out).
Many themes are explored and although there are similarities with Romero the outcomes are as different but down beat. Check out Shivers motorcade, or the Officials (homage) in Rabid where headshots are the only surefire solution.
Shivers and Rabid are genre fare, done with bravado and rough edges.
Dead Zone is unexpectedly restrained and hopefully not prescient. It's almost like a Sirk melodrama with winter colours.
Walken and the ensemble thrash out to a pleasing denouement.
For the price of one you get three and some interesting context with Canadian evaluations.

5.0 out of 5 stars August device is great value and typically punches way above it's price point, 10 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a small, intuitive box, easy to set and use with a very enjoyable picture. It's not trying to be flash, it just works in a logical way, once the stations are in. Set up was similar to my Samsung tv freeview time wise and picture quality is great, I think equal to my sky hd boxes. The epg is functional and so far both boxes have recorded and played back admirably. These replaced a 10+ year old Sony DVD hard disc recorder and a Technika fview box, the picture and ease of use is better than either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks like a toy, but performance is admirable, 31 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my dad, (I did explain that I spared virtually all expense). Am hoping to unleash a selectable music search from kindle fire with various 60s &70s artistes. The radio works, Bluetooth was quick to find and sound is considerably better than I expected. This is my 4th/5th August device. In my opinion they have all perform at least as well as items costing 3x as much from established manufacturers. Am ordering a second for my mum.

Well known cartoon characters. Quick to stream. When you've gotta cartoon craving this will help. Not last word in picture quality, perhaps, but at least as watchable as VHS. A very good and simple to use app.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manchester Splatter- Romero inspired but very munch their own, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Watched on vhs back in the late 70s. Even then it felt out of time. Synopsis :- change rocket to agricultural equipment as zombification method. Mix various non English speaking protagonists, a Hollywood oirish and best pre Savini gore with dour locations. Believe the tagline - this is truly one of the best of the genre. Director gives a great insight into the process of getting a low budget film made (all the bluray extras are subtitled either Spanish or Italian). Over all a fascinating non related adjunct between "Night " and "Dawn ".
