This review is from: Lucy (DVD)
Lucy is a movie that if you think too much about certain plot elements the story falls apart rather quickly. If you go into it suspending analytical thinking and just enjoying the ride and watching the story unfurl Lucy is great fun! For fans of sic-fi you will like this movie. The cinematography and the actual editing of the film is fantastic. Scarlett Johansson does an excellent acting job. Morgan Freeman is a good supporting actor but not his best work. Lucy is a polarizing movie and mixed reviews are to be expected. Go in with an open mind, remind yourself this is mostly sic-fi and not based on fact (besides some aspects of the movie), and enjoy the show. I've seen this movie twice in theaters now (once when it first came out, and once last night at the 2nd run movie theater). The first viewing was definitely the best because I didn't know what to expect, and the 2nd viewing I was able to better appreciate the camera work and the finer details that go missed at first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money, February 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Before I read this book I only had a cursory knowledge about penny stocks. After reading this book I feel much more enlightened about penny stocks, both the pros and cons.

If you are just starting out learning about penny stocks I heartily recommend this book. The writing style is very well done and there are only a few grammatical errors.

Take the time to read this book slowly and let the information sink in and revisit or reread later to solidify it into your noggin'.

Well worth the price. If you want to know more about penny stocks and strategies for picking ones that aren't duds or flat out frauds the info is definitely in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Blueprint, February 5, 2009
This book is the indie band blueprint for the future. Very well written, lots of good examples, and lots of great ideas. The book is also spread out in a very logical manner. I would recommend this book to any band that is starting out (or has been around the block) and needs an easy to follow blueprint for success. A lot of the book is common sense but there are a lot of very good marketing tips that other books haven't mentioned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godsend, September 18, 2008
iZotope Ozone 3 is a godsend to the amateur and advanced home recordist. Lots of great features, an intuitive interface, and great product support (they have a mastering guide on their website). Used correctly, this software will put that elusive sheen on your recordings and give you a more professional finished demo or product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to Get Your Feet Wet, September 18, 2008
This review is from: Reason 4 Power! (Paperback)
This is the perfect introductory book to Reason 4.0. This book will get you up and running with Reason 4.0 very quickly and is a great reference. I've never touched Reason before and this book made learning the software a breeze. My understanding about synthesis has increased exponentially. If Reason 4.0 is the first version of Reason you have ever used, I would highly recommend this book. If you have used previous versions of Reason then this book does cover the new features in 4.0 but most of it will be old news to you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grandiose, April 16, 2008
This review is from: There Will Be Blood (DVD)
First the bad:

1) The packaging is horrible. I think they are trying to save some oil in shipping costs!
2) The beginning of the soundtrack sounds like something stolen straight from the TV show Lost.
3) Ending feels a bit rushed.
4) Drags on in spots.

Now the good:

1) Daniel Day-Lewis deserved that Oscar! Best acting performance I have seen in a long time.
2) Cinematography is outstanding.
3) The script is almost perfect. There are no filler words.
4) Lovely descent into madness.
5) The more you think about the movie after you have watched it the better it gets.

Conclusion:

This is a movie for thinkers. You get out of this movie what you put into it. There is meaning in everything. Daniel Plainview was a bad dude. Watch this movie to see one of the best acting performances ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Mixing Biible?, March 18, 2008
This book might be the next mixing bible. For Amazon's price this book is a bargain and everybody should pick it up. My only gripes are that I wish there was more practical applications and tricks included in the text and I wish that it would have been proof-read better (lot's of grammatical errors). The real meat of the book is the tools section which goes over all the commonly used mixing tools. The chapters on compression and EQ is what really sealed the deal for me. I would say this book is a great companion to The Mixing Engineer's Handbook. It doesn't give as many tricks as the other book but it makes up for it with very detailed explanations of the mixing tools. It goes over every control for all of the tools and why or why not you would want to use those controls. I've learned a lot from this book and can't wait to put what I have learned into practice! This book will be within an arms reach of my computer at all times!

5.0 out of 5 stars Check This One Out!!, February 13, 2008
I thought the story line was better than The Departed. If you have any sort of a pulse, and like gangster movies, this movie will not let you down! It gets a little long but it is well worth the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect, July 5, 2007
I picked up this book several times at the bookstore but never purchased it until... I read the first chapter. I had always flipped through the book and thought that all of it looked like greek to me, and that I would never be able to understand it.

Once I started reading it, I enjoyed it, I understood it, and I learned the concepts.

I got excited and I bought the ultimate reference to Ruby the "Pick Axe" guide, and I also bought Agile Web Development with Rails.

If Learn to Program would have been bad or badly written I probably would have given up on ever learning to program.

If you are a web developer you owe it to yourself to check out this book. I tried to learn PHP first, but with Ruby and this beginners book to program, I am actually learning it.

It would be even better if it had an index and there was a website you could go to, where you could find help/answers to the extra end of chapter questions.

This is a great place to start to learn how to program.

3.0 out of 5 stars Might find a better one., February 23, 2007
The screw/knob that tightens the gooseneck to the arm always comes undone very easily. I think they could have designed one that tightens better. Other than that this is a good pop screen to get going with.
