5.0 out of 5 stars The best sheet music for Billy Joel, April 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was an excellent item. It contains the transcripts for Billy Joel himself and even includes alternates (he didn't always play the solos the same way). I highly recommend if you want to play actual Billy Joel songs!

No DVD collection is complete without this collection. The transfer and the audio are flawless. One of the best restorations I have ever seen. Make no mistake, buy this. You aren't truly a man until you own the Godfather on BluRay. :D

Didn't fit! Be absolutely sure this will fit your washer. I googled it, and it was supposed to go on mine but its way too small.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, fun, informative read, February 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I manage a coffee house and I read this book to kind of get an idea of how Starbucks did it. Schultz is never dull, its a quick read (could be done in a day or two) and there is a lot in there to mull over. If you arent in the coffee business, however, this book might go over your head a bit

5.0 out of 5 stars Cher gets her own boxset...Finally!, November 5, 2010
Just in time for the holiday season, Cher: The Film Collection is released.

This is a set of films that Cher fans, movie fans, cine-philes, and everyone in between can enjoy. Six movies featuring our girl Cher are presented beautifully in one collection for a reasonable price.

Good Times (1967) was an outrageous vehicle for Sonny and Cher. This movie was made slightly before their hugely successful TV show. Good Times is about Sonny trying to come up with an idea for a movie for the two of them to star in. It is goofy and extremely campy; what would you expect from these two. Not the greatest movie in the collection, but worth a watch on a lazy afternoon. William Friedkin (The Exorcist) makes his directorial debut.

Chastity (1969) sounds familiar? Sonny and Cher's daughter, well now son, was conceived during the making of this movie. She was named after this movie, not the movie being named after her (contrary to popular belief). Sonny wrote this for Cher because he wanted to showcase her as a serious actress. This may be Sonny's best attempt to be serious, but the goofiness of the movie is almost outweighing the seriousness. The drama that went on behind the scenes on this movie would have made for a better movie. Cher cheated on Sonny because she was furious with him over how Chastity was turning out. There is next to no plot to this movie. Cher plays Chastity, a curious girl exploring the world of sex and drugs.

Silkwood (1983) is amazing. Cher plays a supporting character, Dolly, who is Meryl Streep's roommate and best friend. Cher plays a lesbian with no flash or fance....and she does it beautifully. Never before or after has Cher looked so homely. This film is a drama in the highest degree. No longer in print, the only way to get this would be to buy it used or in this collection. Mike Nichols directs.

Moonstruck (1987) is Cher's best known role. She was an academy award for her portrayal of an Italian lady trying to do the right thing in her own way. She is magnetic here, magical, even heart wrenching. One of the greatest performances from any actress. One of the greatest movies ever made. Definitely not to be missed.

Mermaids (1990) completes Cher's emergence into film stardom. Cher is the Jewish mother of two girls trying to grow up in the 1960s. Like any mother, Cher's character makes it as difficult as she can. After another break up, Cher, as Mrs. Flax, loads up the car and drives everyone to Massachusetts to begin another new life there. Of the movies in this collection, Mermaids is by far the most fun.

Tea with Mussolini (1999) finds a relatively small part for Cher. Maybe one of the most underrated movies of this time period, Tea with Mussolini is remarkably thoughtful and heartfelt. Set just before WWII, a group of wealthy English women raise a child whose mother has died. It's nice to see that this movie was included in this set and can be brought into the light once again. Maybe more people will appreciate it after a second viewing.

There it is, 6 movies on 6 disc's. If you own these movies already individually, its not worth buying as there are no new special features on here.

Sadly missing from this collection are a handful of Cher's great films like Mask, Witches of Eastwick, Suspect, If These Walls Could Talk, Faithful, Stuck On You, and most upsetting of all, Come Back to the Five And Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean (which has still YET to be released on DVD!!!!)

Bottom Line:

If you don't already own these movies, do yourself a favor and buy this collection. These will surely warm up your cold winter nights this holiday season.

With love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh Zac, January 24, 2010
This is an interesting little documentary that I stumbled upon by accident. Its only an hour long, and it doesn't really give you any information that you wouldn't already know (or want to know) about Zac. Worth a rent, but maybe not a buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, July 16, 2009
This book isn't the BEST book ever written, but it is certainly worth a read. Its light and fast. It's an interesting premise and wickedly funny. Jeff Povey has created a fascinating world that should be multiplied into more books.

It's understandable that some folks wouldn't care for it, but its not a slasher. I say, give it a whirl.

Beware, these dolls are expensive. And once you get one, you'll want the entire bridge crew. I sure did. And how can you NOT love Uhura?

4.0 out of 5 stars How can you not love Queen?, May 14, 2009
This review is from: Classic Queen (Audio CD)
Wonderful. A must have for Queen fans, or people who just want some fun music. This CD is a little more emotional than the "Best of Queen" CD.
