5.0 out of 5 stars a great cable at the wrong price., June 10 2016
this is a great shielded powercord from the zeros' when monster cable was still making fine products at a reasonable price. This one would have sold for around 100.00 u.s. and now that it's out of manufacture some seller wants you to buy it for hundreds more. Which means he or she will never sell this probably. Anyways, the 300 is a really thick power cable really suited for electronics. A similiar cable would run this much or more , but monster did what those others do fora better price. I have one of these, and two 200's , which you can still buy on for 50.00 u.s. dollars. Now that is reasonable for such a high end item. And a 100 as well. I have known people to pay much more, but a fifty buck one is more than enough if not overkill. This one is overkill and now the price is even WORSE than before.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good kids movie in native 3d., June 9 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is a good kid's movie that was shot in 3d. It is a french language film with dubtitles. If you love hockey and you like a good kids flick abou ta kid's hockey team, then you will like this film It is native 3d as far as i can tell and I collect 3d films. SO i had to buy this. And it does h ave 3d subtitles too. This is what it is, a kids movie but it's a 3d kids live action film about the cool sport of kids hockey!

4.0 out of 5 stars a decnet concept disc by a hard rock band., Jan. 15 2015
This review is from: Music from the Elder (Audio CD)
kiss went prog rock with this one. A concept disc when it wasn't in fashion at the time. IT has lots of great songs on it though. "i', and others are solid rock songs by any standard. And the great song ' a world without heroes' is on here too. This one is for kiss kompletists who shouldn't dismiss what the band was trying to do here. And it wouldn't have been a big deal if they had released a hard rocker in the same year as this one . People would have said." ok, you gave us a hard rocker, now you can do this' but this came after the pop release of unmasked. and it was a mistake for them at the time. NOW, you can enjoy this fine kiss release and see it for what it was. A decent concept disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars the boys were back in a hard rockin' way., Jan. 15 2015
This review is from: Creatures of the Night (Audio CD)
kiss came charging back with solid hard rock with this release. They had made a great pop and prog rock release , which would have been ok if they had also done hard rock releases at the same time. But this was a return to a awesome hard rock that would influence later bands like stp. There's great tracks all over this one and that's a good thing. Songs like 'war machine' are still played live by the band too. The remaster cd has this cool cover version. At the same time this came out the band put out a release called 'killers' in Germany. It has four tracks on it that kiss fans should have in their collection as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars this one is fun hard rock., Jan. 12 2015
This review is from: Space Invader (Audio CD)
this is great melodic rock and almost every song is very good. This is the type of cd which doesn't try to be anything but FUN. If you want fun rock where ace tells you he's a space invader and he then sing about other songs like chasing girls. then this is for you. This isn't deep rock , it's all about a guy enjoying himself making hard rock. And this does rock. In fact I played it at a music store and the metal heads there thought it was very cool. And they usually like thrash only. So that just goes to show that ace can deliver and he does with tthis one. Most songs on here are solid traditional hard rock and that's what you want from ace or kiss or the scorpions or whoever. I wish ufo would deliver that again. And I love ufo. Grab this one if you love traditional hard rock or metal and you will have a big smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars a vintage 3d film gets a 3d blu ray release1, Dec 19 2014
This is a great vintage 3d film. They have restored it to a large degree and the 3d looks fantastic It was released in 1954 and it looks pretty good. The story is a low budget one about a squadron of pilots in the Korean war. It's a ok at best war movie. But it has lots of great 3d shots. John hodiak is the star of this one and he does a good job. The film used real tanks and they look ominous in 3d. The aireal footage is stock and it of course doesn't look fantastic! But this is part of the new wave of releasing classic 3d movies to us on 3d blu ray. There are some speckles but it doesn't detract from the movie at all. Another fine new release is 1966's The bubble' a truly fantastic looking 3d blu ray. Other great 3d blu rays of classic films are 'house of wax 3d, , dial m for murder, flesh and blood show (1971), man in he dark 3d. kiss me kate is coming out in 2015. and inferno which is out in our region and stars Robert ryan! get them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of many great releases of classic 3d films on blu ray, Dec 19 2014
There are a number of classic 3d titles out there. This is a limited edition release from twilight time. this company is going to release
another classic 3d title , probably 'miss Sadie thompson' in the next year or so. This one features a fine clean picture and great native 3d. It was filmed in it. The story is a good one about a criminal trying to go straight and the crooks who are after him. It just looks stunning. And it has a excellent cast in it. Edmond o brian really carries the movie. There are a number of other recent classic titles now out on 3d blu ray. "dragonfly squadron' (1955), House of wax(1953), dial m for murder (1954) , the bubble (1966), inferno (1953) is available on in our region now. creature from the black lagoon" (1954), 3d rarities (1923-50's rare 3d shorts available in 2015,), kiss me kate (1954) march 2015. and 'flesh and blood show' 1971 the last ten minutes are 3d. this is out now. the mask (1961) is coming out in 2015. so get them all and get this one for your 3d collection. check screen archives twilight time for this and future rare releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars this isn't the worst edition!, April 28 2011
This movie is a four star fun fest from the 90's but this blu ray is cut rate with no extras at all , however the picture looks much better than on the truly awful
echo bridge blu ray from the states. However alliance could have done a better job on this; only they didn't. The blu ray is less than four stars but many blus have used; just like this one; the best print around with no cleanup. Unfortunately this fun flick wasn't given the top treatment. however it's not a bad as lets say halloween h20 looks on blu ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars great deal but h20 needs a clean up, Oct. 19 2010
This one is the exact same as the dvd triple pack but the sound options are better with master audio on a few of them. The prints as the other reviewers said look great on halloween 6 , and halloween resurrection' both of which are good halloween movies. Some fans hate 'resurrection' but I don't it's a decent flick in the series. 'h20' or halloween 7 doesn't have the best print , it's acceptable but it has artifacts, little specks that pop up here and there. They should have found a better print like the other two movies have in this set. Still it's watchable and not really shredded. There are no extras on this set because three movies are on it. two are 1080i and one in 1080p although what is more important to me is that they get a better print for h20.
In fact the rest of the series needs to be put out on blu ray with as good of prints as 'halloween 6 and resurrection" has. the first one is out but you could easily double up h2, h3, and h4 and h5 in two blu rays. Hopefully someone will do that. If you enjoy the halloween series then this is worth it. However they do need to put this out in the states as well. As there is a market for this pack and it's available there in standard dvd. has superfast shipping too.
