My God did I hate this book. Could only endure about 50 pages. Life is too short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two cents..., April 17, 2014
I loved the finale. I am almost done re-watching the series (a bit of free time on my hands) and the end fits perfectly with the rest of the show comically and emotionally. I enjoyed seeing what happened to them in the future- a very common occurrence on the show.The fact that the future is not entirely bright is life- something the show tried to show since it's beginning. And as for the very end-

They may not have been right in the past- but who's to say they won't make it work twenty years from now. It was always about Ted and Robin. I'm happy they were able to make it work in the end. I found the end of the show to be an incredibly uplifting experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leave you histrionics at the door., December 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Contagion (2011) (DVD)
Simply the best movie made on the subject of a viral outbreak... period. Of course I appreciate the clinical way it presents the subject. It never allows for any large displays of emotion. Love it for that. And as far as I've read- that really has been the only criticism- it's 'unemotional' demeanor. See it as a pro or con... that was the what the director wanted.

I'll be hiking it in 2015 so I think that gives me time enough for memorizing the seemingly infinite detail in this 'huge' map. It really is a beauty.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful set for a great movie, December 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an amazing collection worthy of a great film. The photos, the replica correspondence, the book, the poster, et all. It's all placed in a very nice box with a strong magnetic closure. Considering how much the movie alone is going for now- spend the extra for this set. If you're a fan of the movie you'll be happy you did.

The only 'con' is the non-inclusion of the original theatrical cut. Apparently Stone has gone the way of Lucas and refuses to admit the theatrical cut even exists any more. Too bad. It flows slightly better without the extra scenes. Still a great movie 'tho. I believe there was a conspiracy... so that may help my appreciation for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Blade loss..., December 19, 2012
Used this knife at a box factory where I worked for several weeks... so I consequently used it under every cutting situation imaginable. The blade comes out constantly under seemingly any circumstance no matter what you do to try to prevent it- hitting the release button or not. A real shame too- because I loved everything else about it... but if Stanley screwed up on the most important bit- they get no points for the "bells and whistles".

1.0 out of 5 stars Are you kiding me?!?, January 9, 2012
I am a big fan of Wim Wenders and his films for a long time- especially this movie- which is why I am so surprised that he coudn't find it in himself to add english subtitles to the EXTENSIVE foreign language scenes. Does he have such a distaste for this country that he would shoot himself in the foot over something which amounts to NO effort on his part. A LOT of people here love this film and would gladly shell out big bucks for this cut- BUT NOT UNLESS WE KNOW WHAT THE HELL IS BEING SAID! Just an idiot move on his part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alight then..., August 21, 2011
Setting aside the fact that this is of course one of the seminal science fiction films... for a thousand dollars I would at the very least expect a second disk with some interviews or deleted scenes. I realize they're all on the one blu-ray disk- but after paying all this money- I would feel a little ripped off if I at least didn't receive an essay booklet or some cool little 2001 mini- poster.

This review is from: UCO Stormproof Matches (Sports)
These are just what you are hoping for in a match that doesn't go out in any circumstances. Plus they Do burn for about 15 seconds. They two extra strike pads are a nice touch also. Inexpensive and great quality- not much more need say.

It's exactly what I was hoping. Sturdy/squeezable bottle that doesn't leak. The screw off bottom has a opening plenty large enough to make cleaning easy. Overall very happy with it.
