4.0 out of 5 stars "Cowboys & Aliens" isn't the only cowboys & aliens movie, August 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oblivion (DVD)
This one is set in the future, not the past like the other "Cowboys & Aliens" and it just takes us to a cowboy town in the future complete with bad guys. I bought this movie for one reason: Hot women of the '80s: Meg Foster plays a cyborg sheriff, Julie Newmar plays the owner of a tavern/bordello, and Musetta Vander plays a really good looking, whip wielding, leather clad bad babe. Although aged a little, these ladies still look great and are fun to watch. This is definitely a 'B'-list movie but fun none-the-less.

5.0 out of 5 stars This bowl truly does sing and heals, August 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It may take you a little time, but once you get the hang of it, you'll get your wrist at just the right angle to the bowl and by just moving around the outside of the bowl with the striker (you never strike, just rub) you'll produce the most beautiful, rich, deep harmonic sound. But this is only the by-product of what the bowl is used for; hold the bowl openly in the palm of your hand and the vibrations will heal your chakra point that resonates with the tone of the bowl. Each chakra point has a specific tone with which it resonates. I believe this bowl (6") is an 'F' and is in tune to heal the heart chakra.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are refills. You must have Installation Kit first!, August 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you've already installed the 'step sprayer', you also know about how this product makes your clean toilet last and last. There's also more than one fragrance so make sure you order the one you like or try another; just be aware that they do come in different fragrances when ordering so you get the one you want.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but still doesn't come close to "Fritz the Cat", August 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You would think with John Goodman and Billy Crystal at the comedy helm, this movie would have delivered much more fun and craziness and also be much more 'colored' in it's humor. Yeah, it's alright for a G, but I think it would have worked better if it was more adult-oriented with a minimum of PG-13 rated stuff coming from the lips of two of the best improv-style comedians that we know. This leads me to believe that "Monsters University" can't possibly be that reflective of college pranks and life and will be a bigger let-down than "Monsters, Inc." was.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better on Blu-ray, August 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I remember this movie being rather dark and fuzzy, but I loved the Lord of the Rings-type story. Now, on Blu-ray, everything is brighter and more distinct and it is much easier to watch. I've got everything that Ralph Bakshi made 'cause I really dig this independent director who kept cartoons, besides the Disney-family-goody-two-shoes type, on the map. Now that his stuff has been re-worked into blu-ray format, it's time to replace your old VHS tapes that are barely visible.


Crocodile Dundee II
Crocodile Dundee II
DVD
Price: $2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Once is good, Twice is better, July 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Paul Hogan made quite a splash when he came on the scene with ""Crocodile" Dundee". He and Linda Koslowski made a great team and continued the connection in ""Crocodile" Dundee II". It had the right combination of action, comedy, and adventure to make a really successful franchise. I don't need to say more here than get the whole trilogy and sit back for a humorous ride that I'm sure you'll enjoy over and over again. The world loved Paul Hogan and the new personna that he brought to Hollywood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cast and a new (old) team, June 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bound [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
What's to be said about Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon other than they are fine actresses in their own right; together they are great. This team-up, turn around, suspenseful thriller is definitely worth watching and I'm sure you'll want to watch it more than one time. As a movie that had too little advertising I was surprised how good it actually was. It should have gotten more play than it did. You'll like it!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's no "Ice Age" but it has it's moments, June 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a pretty funny film about extraterrestrial invasion when they're pitted against the all american family. It has plenty of sight gags and innuendo. There may be one or two belly laughs in it but that's not enough to save the film. It's good for a watching but as a keeper...?

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the singing bowls come without cushions. This will not do, June 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're a collector and/or user of these Tibetan singing bowls, they should be stored sitting on their own cushion. The purpose is to keep the brass, over time, from sticking to any painted surface they are laid upon. It's just good manners, also.

3.0 out of 5 stars They tried with what they had, June 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Now that Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings is out, it renders this one rather silly. But true LOTR fans, at that time, would accept anything to do with one of the greatest fantasy trilogies of all time. There was also "The Hobbit" and "The Return of the King" by Ralph Bakshi and starring Orson Bean as Bilbo (and Frodo) as musical adventures in animated form. They were all very entertaining but this one, unless seen on an original broadcast was way too complicated and massive to copy onto VHS. It was very dark and was in the years of very early rotoscoping. It did not matter though to any die hard J. R. R. Tolkien fan/addict, they were very entertaining.
