4.0 out of 5 stars a decent found footage film., January 6, 2015
as with most horror films , seeing this at a movie theater is much more effective than on your tiny tv. It was very effective and spooky there. Of course on tv you see a little screen in front of you instead of a giant one that adds to the picture. I would say that as much as I love my home theater if you are not going to the movies then you are missing out , especially concerning horror films. This one is a found footage type of movie. These are NOT my favorite type of horror films but we get several a year. Ever since the classic 'blair witch project' came out in 1999 that is. This one takes place deep in the catacombs beneath Paris and it's scary but also not as gory as it could have been. The blu ray is a good version of the film with a great picture. the acting is effective and this is a higher budget than most found footage films by a long shot So that is a plus here.

5.0 out of 5 stars a decent converted 3d package., January 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a decent conversion of vintage 3 stooges classics. They were filmed in 2d but converted into 3d. They actually made real 3d shorts in the 1950's and I don't know why this company hasn't put those out. The stooges were always great and this blu ray allows you to see them in 3d. which is fun for sure. Please put out the real 3d shorts that the stooges made in the 1950's on 3d blu ray. the conversion is pretty good here but it won't compare to the real 3d versions from the fifties.

5.0 out of 5 stars marvel's flagship title at war!, January 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is a great restored edition of 'marvel mystery comics " issues 21-24. this believe it or not is prewar comics! Marvel comics was already at war with the axis long before the u.s. joined the fight!. In this one we get tales by many great artists like: bill everet , and jack Kirby, al avison, and paul gustason. The tales alternated between non war and war stories. Featuring the angel, kazar, sub mariner, terry vance and the human torch. This was timely's flagship title and each tale is around ten pages long. This one is being sold at a great price too. many of these editions are much more expensive than this on amazon.com So grab this one and put this on your shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real 3d documentary about motorcycle racing!, January 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
excellent native 3d documentary shot in the uk. It is about motorcycle racing and it should have come out here in the u.s. But of course we didn't get it. It's region b I think. I have a all region 3d blu ray player so to me it doesn't matter what region it is. This has lots of great shots of people on motorcyles racing around. And they are engaged in a very dangerous race. The blu ray looks outstanding and has a boring flat 2d version. (as compared to the exciting 3d version visually). This is worth owning. Just check out the region before you buy it. The blu rays picture is outstanding either way you watch it. But 3d fans should want this one in their collection for sure.

2.0 out of 5 stars where is the 3d blu ray? this is a 3d movie., January 2, 2015
This review is from: Iceman [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
this is a decent movie. However we have been ripped off once again. THIS movie was filmed in 3d I am tired of them NOT putting out 3d movies on 3d blu ray. They suck for doing this to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars great restored and fun comics!, January 1, 2015
more great restored vintage archie comics. This takes place in the late forties and it's a fun read. Dark horse sure does a good job with these old comics. That for sure. Archie is up to his regular goofiness here and it's timeless fun. This has numerous reprints in them and you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good gangster series set in the uk's 1920's., December 31, 2014
This review is from: Peaky Blinders [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
this is a region b blu ray. You need a all region player to watch this blu ray. You can buy a allregoin 3d blu ray player on amazon.com. it will play ell blu rays , 3d blu rays and all dvd's from anywhere in the world. region free is how they sell them. This is a gritty tale that utilizes modern music as a backdrop to the late teens and early 20's in 20th century Birmingham. It's a gangster show in which the peaky blinders gang rises to the top of the underworld in Birmingham and then they try to break into London's scene. It's a fast moving show with strong acting in it. However , this has a modern feel to it in some regards. That doesn't hurt the show. At least they are not listening to modern music like the awfully scored 'the great gatsby' , which was a good movie other than the music. The music here is rock and it's a soundtrack affair ,not part of the characters lives at least.


The Assets Season 1
The Assets Season 1
Price: $14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A excellent cold war spy drama. based on true events., December 31, 2014
this is a excellent spy series. And if you liked 'the game' or 'mi 5' among others you should enjoy this true story about one of the worst traitors in American history. He did it for money of course; but this show depicts the struggle to find out who the mole was. It's very well done and it's not a action show. Most spying is not about action anyways after all. It's about building up ASSETS. The show was treated like crap by abc. It was a miniseries after all. they should have done what sci fi did with their miniseries ascension" , they showed in two hour blocks over three nights instead of one hour per week. this could have been done over four nights . But they showed it hourly. after two episodes they then showed two more in the summer, and then the rest on sunday afternoon!. It is a fine miniseries , and I highly recommend it. It's historical and interesting and it tells a true story that should be known. Many brave Russian assets died because of Ames. We should acknowledge them more.


Operation Repo Season 8
Operation Repo Season 8
Price: $19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars The first of the repo shows., December 30, 2014
Operation repo was a fun tv series. It was a wild and fun recreation show about repo towing. IT was often very outrageous and sometimes silly. But it lasted for many years until being cancelled in 2014. It started out as a Spanish speaking show for two seasons. then it was picked up by tru tv for another six seasons at least This show helped spark a repo show craze. With lizard lick towing, and south beach tow being the two that survived. Two other series one on tru tv and one on national geo lasted only one season apiece. But discovery's 'airplane repo' has been on four at least 3 seasons. Anyways this was the granddaddy of them all and it fell to the ax but with a ton of episodes under it's belt. You will find a lot of laughs in this show. And weird situations and other things. It's over the top sometimes but worth your time if you like comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 star film with another for the great looking 3d!, December 27, 2014
this was shown in 3d in Europe. the awful studios denied us that here in the states. SO I had to buy the 3d blu ray. And in that regards it's stunning to look at. this should have been in 3d everywhere!. The added depth is incredible to see and the battle scenes with the watcher rock angels is fantastic. This is sorta the story of noah of course which was first the story of Gilgamesh , the jewish people were in exhile in Babylon and they adapted the story to their bible. But in this version which pissed people off it's because mankind has destroyed the earth that god wipes out everything. Of course that is the case today , we are wiping out the earths species for sure. This does a good job though in some ways biblically. of course religious people would say it was only about man's sinning. but isn't it a sin to destroy that which god created? Yes it is. Man is shown to very wicked in this movie and you could see how god would want to wipe him out . It's much like genocidal polluted world we live in now. this film has fine acting in it. but it adds stuff like god wanting to kill off all mankind. which is not in the story, god wanted to start over with man on the planet. at least in the story. that is a slant that would anger anyone who likes the story of Noah. Still if you look at this as a fantasy movie that looks great in 3d you will find enjoyment here. It's like intersteller. can anyone deny that the movie wouldn't have looked much better in 3d? sure it would. Hollywood needs to get 3ding much more. And we deserve the same 3d blu rays that other countries have. I have a all region 3d player so I can watch any 3d film from anywhere in the world . so I don't know if this only region b. But it's worth your money to get a all region 3d blu ray player , it will play any dvd, blu ray, or 3d blu ray from anywhere in the world and you can buy the many 3d titles that are not out in the states.
