The Amazing Spider-Man 2  (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet]
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Bilingual) [Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet]
DVD ~ Andrew Garfield

1.0 out of 5 stars Rent it, Aug. 20 2014
This movie is pretty awful. Unless your a hardcore comic or Spidey fan I would skip it because this movie has a lot of problems. The biggest is Peter Parker spends the whole movie crying, and the villains suck (Jamie Foxx is a great actor, but he's given nothing to work with). Marc Webb is clearly not a fan of the material and Sony is trying too hard to push their Sinister Six movie. The only upside I can think of is Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have got tons of charisma.

Watch this on Netflix or rent it, don't waste your money for a full price Blu-Ray

Thankfully, Amazing Spider-Man 3 got pushed back to 2018, so hopefully Sony can fix this mess they've made

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare and Fantastic Show!, Nov. 25 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
LOST is a rare kind television show because it is heavily serialized, features a large ensemble cast and shoots on location in Hawaii. Big networks like ABC, NBC, FOX, etc, do not like these things. They don't like shows that confuse the viewers or shows that are hard to pick up and watch in the middle of the season. LOST is so heavily serialized (not so much in this season, but in the future) that if you miss even one episode, you miss a lot of story. And it's wonderful when you watch the show from beginning to end because there is so much reward and satisfaction.

LOST is a fantastic series, that does an incredible job mixing the science-fiction and fantasy elements with human drama. There is constant mystery surrounding the island the people who are on it, so you will always be entertained. I can't praise LOST enough, I only wish more television was ambitious as this

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible, Sept. 26 2012
This review is from: Angel: Season 1 (DVD)
David Greenwalt and Joss Whedon start off this Buffy spin-off with a bang. The stories aren't as sharp as they get in later seasons, but the incredible cast (David Boreanaz, Charisma Carpenter and Glenn Quin) make this show something special. I truly recommend this show to anyone who is a fan of good drama

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful!, July 10 2012
Wow. What a terrible movie. An awful script, bad villains (a guy who kills things when he touches them..wtf), mediocre special effects and bad actors. The only good thing about this movie is Idris Elba is the only good thing about this movie. Nicholas Cage gives such an over-the-top performance it becomes a parody of itself. Please, do not buy this, save your hard earned money.

I hope this franchise gets rebooted because Ghost Rider is an awesome character and deserves better than this...

5.0 out of 5 stars The price will drop closer to the release date, June 1 2012
Relax people. The price will drop to 34.99 closer to the release date.

Otherwise, the film is astounding. The greatest comic book film I've ever seen (and one of the best films I've seen period). Lots of interesting characters, a great story, lots and lots of humor and some of the most intense action ever filmed. A must buy for everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you believe in heroes, May 7 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This season of Smallville is one of the best. It brings back most of the major characters from the shows past to help Clark take the final step of his destiny of becoming Superman. And the finale that the show has been building up to for 10 years is very satisfying. There are also some nice special features on the set. Overall this show has been a great piece of comic book history and the final season is a wonderful send off.

1.0 out of 5 stars I found it boring..., May 7 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some people might enjoy this film, but I didn't find it interesting. I found the story too ambitious and poorly executed, the characters predictable, and it tries to hard to be artistic. This movie isn't for everybody, I would recommend renting it before you shell out your hard earned dollars on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars An action film with edge!, May 7 2012

I love action films and this is one of the greatest. An intense story, great action and superb actors (Julie Benz is great) make Rambo the best entry in the franchise.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best season of Supernatural!, May 7 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some people were very concerned that Eric Kripke left the show this season. But I am pleased to say that Sera Gamble (his "replacement") takes the show in a much better direction. Things become more personal for the characters and serialized. Every episode moves the story forward and helps build a much more satisfying conclusion. Fear not though, there are still incredible stand-alone episodes like "The French Mistake" (which, is in my opinion, is the best episode of the series). The set is filled with great special features which round out an incredible set. A must buy for Supernatural fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars A casual fans perspective, March 24 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm not obsessed with Smallville, I just enjoy the show and thought this would be a good purchase. And I was correct, some great summaries, neat facts and exclusive interviews make this book a great pick-up if your a fan of the show. The only real complaint I have about this film is that the pages are black and white, which feels cheap, but otherwise a good book.
