The Villain
The Villain
DVD ~ Kirk Douglas
Price: $7.50
61 used & new from $3.42

3.0 out of 5 stars a LIVE action Cartoon, August 30, 2014
This review is from: The Villain (DVD)
Lets be honest, The Villain is a slapstick comedy made up like a western. So if Blazing Saddles was a Looney Toon cartoon, this would be it. So if you were looking for a nonsensical pop corn movie this is it.

I will say it does have an all star cast with Kirk Douglas as the lead role of Cactus Jack, The Villain. Ann Margaret plays Charming Jones. Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Handsome Stranger. Character actors Foster Brooks, Ruth Buzzi, Mel Tillis (YES the country singer), Jack Elam and Paul Lynde round out this cast. Directed by Oscar winner Hal Needham, this cartoonque comedy is full of stunts and sight gags and very thin on plot.

So this movie isnt great filmmaking, it is pure popcorn. It is a LIVE ACTION road runner cartoon set in the west. So just laugh at this film, you know you want to!

Doll
Doll
by Guy Colwell
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EROTIC DOLL, August 17, 2014
This review is from: Doll (Paperback)
This ADULT graphic nobel about a plastic doll , a life-like jointed sex surrogate, and the men who want her their own reasons. this graphic novel printed in black and and cover issue 1-3 of the Rip Off Press on white paper.

Note this book is insightful ..even 15 years later than its original books hit the comic stores. Guy Colwell's gialog is real. The way his story is written , it could happen today

DOLL is not for children. It is an erotic comic. The true story of Doll is .the message Colwell gives us an amazing story of invention, love , greed and heartache. I wish someone would bring this story back to life in comics

MR. T: Graphic Novel (2008, TPB)
MR. T: Graphic Novel (2008, TPB)
by Christopher Bunting

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr T Graphic novel, August 8, 2014
This is MR T as super boyguard..NOT based on the MR T cartoon series that hanna Barbara did in the 1980's.

This collected UK comic series was to be the first of two graphic novels. Writer Christopher Bunting, who has worked for Marvel UK, in the superhero genre seems unsuited for this non-superhero-ish Mr T

J.L. Czerniawski is adventurous and works on many level, the problem is the scripts he has to work with

For under a buck or two, it is worth a change to read

5.0 out of 5 stars DRAGNET, July 12, 2014
This two part episode of the radio's Dragnet od ,oreover what this show is about. The Big Red saga showcases Jack Webb's dry delivery which became his trademark in both the radio and the Television shows. . This radio episode was priginally in a large 20 disk Dragnet collection which us long out of print. However, this episode shows the listener Webb's skill with the crime Noir Genre..Webb's voice over is what made and on ME-TV still makes Dragnet interestingIt is well worth the price to listen to these two classic episodes

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tongue in Cheek Conan for young people, July 10, 2014
This review is from: Barbarian Lord (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This sword sage combines Nordic myths with Robert E Howard's Conan lite to make this graphic novel sagaa semi bloodless sandal and sword epic. The vile villain of this period remind me of Skeltor from He-man and The Masters of the Universe. The hero is a He-Man and conan composite

The way the art is drawn , it looks like a simpler version of Jack Kirby art. The story seem like a Roy Thomas or a Barry Smith idea gone bad. Matt Smith's Young adult graphic novel is an adventure tale. It is well written. He also know his mytho and exploits iut fully.

However this story should be one than one volume. In a way, I felt as If I had been dropped into the middle of the story..it needed a preface to lead the readership into the story

I want to see what else Mr. Smith would come up with

3.0 out of 5 stars Gus--a sexual odd-yssey that seems off kilter, July 6, 2014
Another Man who fell to earth? maybe and Maybe NOT!

Gus is an alien, a well educated alien to boot. He waxes poeticly, sometimes too educatedly for an novice alien.He can use street terms as well over logic..he is a cross between David Bowie (The Man who Fell to Earth), The Brother from Another Planet, Jerry Lewis and a OVER sexual ALF. This book seems in spots to overly psedo physocially itself and be less erotical .About 15 pages in, it breaks down into gutteral street lingo that would appear in a dime store porno novel.

It starts off so cosmicly introspectively. and switches tones between an alien alining itself with the universe and porno alter ego that seems like a kid in sexual candy store.

The novel needs to find one voice and use it. It over draws itself thinly..rather than drawing the reader in slowly. It needs to find one voice and use it, I do not know if it both authors attempting to put their own stamp on this novel or one trying to top the other author

This book would make bad 1970's drive-in cinema. It is an adult novel with too many voices for this one alien character. The plot is one alien's expliots, but GUS seems to have multiple personalities or bi-polar at best.

In over 450 pages, this book overdrawns itself. Also its use in CAPITALS and different fonts rather than just simple dialog making this novel seem immature at best. It needed a good editor to clean this up.

As an erotic novel, it needs a lot of work. The term LESS IS MORE should have been used in writing this book. If this book was rewrirten into three to four smaller books, it would have a better impact. In its larger size, it need a better compass where it is going

If it was not so sad tome in its direction, it might have been enjoyable to read. I give it three stars for a good idea that went in many directions and not just one way

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Smoothies cookbook, June 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love a smoothies, this recipe book is almost perfect..The Pictures are lush and beautiful..I even made two of them as soon as I bought my copy. I enjoy the recipes I read, It is a well done book

The only problem I have is it has no calories, sugar,sodium counts on any of these smoothies. I would give it 5 stars if these were included for me to make better judgements food wise

Otherwise the book is beautiful. This is something you need to add to your library

5.0 out of 5 stars Put this on what you need as a diabetic, May 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When my doctor stated to me that I was a diabetic, I asked him what I should eat. Realized this was 25 years ago..He said EAT WHAT YOU WANT BUT LESS. There was no basic ideas of meal planning than. I have grown and learned by trail and error (A LOT OF ERROR on my part). Where was this book when I needed you, It is a godspend..well crafted,for many in the diabetic lifestyle as well as busy one. It is common sense with its NO NONSENSE approach that works and will help many diabetics--INCLUDING ME!

3.0 out of 5 stars a Primer on Phobias, May 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In 68 pages, the author has scratched the surface on the subject matter of what he is trying to say. I dont know Mr Reese, however I wonder what his medical backround is to write a book like this. He has broken down information, but he does not show his sources or findings. What I would say about this e-book is it is a short primer and needs to be fleshed out. Also, Mr Reese needs to show his backround to what he is an expert on writing this book. It is a basic overview of the subject matter and for what is there, it does seem informative..maybe if he wrote a larger, more detailed volume..with f;leshed out theories of why this happens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total different from The TV version, April 28, 2014
I first discovered Orange iis the New Black from the DVD of the first season of the Netflix show. The gritty drama reminds me of the campy Woman Behind bar movies and the HBO show OZ sowed together with a little more depth. a Friend suggested I read the book or Listen to Cassandra Campbell's reading of the audiobook, which I did..Lets say this I was wowed!

This prison memoir is totally different than the TV series. Ms Kerman book is not just a prison memoir, but a hard look as the socal internal workings of prison life from the first strip search to release. This is no Papilion, this is a more indepth book. If you want a NICE love story of prison life, this AINT it! This is a "play it as it lays" true story of a woman who start native and grew up. It will engross the listener totally.

Ms Kerman book is eye openning expierence. It shows what really happens in a woman's prison, unlike the old women in prison movies. It is civil to the prison system. However this book on cd is so harsh in its honesty.You will feel uneasy, because the author feels uneasy with this place. This isnt Devil's Island, It is federal correctial facility in Danbury, Connecticut. However it is the same Ravbit Hole what we the listener navigate with the author.

Cassandra Campbelll is an amazing audio talent, if you have not heard--YOU SHOULD! She deserved all the audie awards and Earphone awards she has gotten. She was the best audio actress that Tandor Media could have gotten for this production ..and It shows. She has the ability to change her vocal patterns at will and does not make this over drawn like Amanda Knox's narrated her book to audio (Harper Audio) of a year ago

So before you watch the second season of Black Invest in listening to this audio memoir, this is the truth well told. For 11 1/2 hours you will be amazed as I was listening to this..you wont want to stop listening this audio until the end.
