An extremely stark and well done movie with superb acting by Bruce Dern..........a must see father/son movie. The family dynamics in this moves are spellbinding and oh so realistic. Loved it and will definitely watch it again sometime.

1.0 out of 5 stars absolutely disgusting.., Aug. 15 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Totally, completely, absolutely disgusting..........can't believe anyone would act in, direct, produce or have anything else to do with such a downright ugly movie.........and for those who actually watch it...........that it way beyond my comprehension. I lasted about 15 minutes and heard more swearing, saw more quasi pornographic material than I ever want to see.......wish I had not waste my money on it!!!

Lilly Brush- Sweater Pill, Lint and Pet Hair Remover (Classic Red)
Lilly Brush- Sweater Pill, Lint and Pet Hair Remover (Classic Red)
Offered by Lilly Brush Co., LLC
Price: CDN$ 13.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK, April 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm somewhat disappointed that this doesn't remove "pills" from fabrics other than wool very well. I was hoping it would remove the pills from my hand knitted sweaters which are knit from a variety of types of yarn. Also have a couple pair of slacks with pills and the brush does little to clear them. Would not recommend this product to anyone else and will get little use from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, April 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 12 Years A Slave (Bilingual) (DVD)
This movie was so moving and almost unbelievable.......the acting was first class and the story so moving, I felt every emotion possible while viewing it and will more than likely watch it again and loan it to friends and family.

U60AH Fully Automatic Digital Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure and Pulse Monitor, Portable Blood Pressure Monitor
U60AH Fully Automatic Digital Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure and Pulse Monitor, Portable Blood Pressure Monitor
Offered by BinnBox LLC
Price: CDN$ 29.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Just doesn't work., April 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This wrist blood pressure monitor doesn't work and unfortunately I've thrown away all the packaging so don't think I can return it. I bought it because the regular arm monitor hurts me so much and in fact leaves bruises on my upper arms.......however, I sure can't trust this new wrist one as it gives me ridiculous readings and often simply says there was an error.........sure would not recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great DeMille Read, Feb. 5 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Panther (Hardcover)
As always Nelson writes this newest book with humour, insight, suspense and makes you want to keep on turning pages. It is interesting that he has chosen to combine three strong characters in one book..........having John Corey, Paul Brenner and Kate all together at once is a really unique concept.

I'm only about half way through the book and am thoroughly enjoying it. I've read every book that Nelson has written and each one is so good I'd be hard pressed to choose a favourite..........one of my favourite authors for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Grisham Gripper, Feb. 9 2012
This review is from: The Litigators (Hardcover)
Currently I'm about half way through this book and like all John Grisham books it is a fantastic read. Easy to get acquainted with the characters........wonderful character descriptions.........can almost picture them. A touch of Grisham comedy and the same can't put it down intrigue. I'm constantly waiting for another Grisham book. Don't know what I'd do if I didn't have Grisham, Baldacci, Vince Flynn and Nelson DeMille books to read. Of course many other authors as well, but these are some of my favourites........they never disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Instruction Book, Feb. 9 2012
This is a great easy to read and understand beginners guide to keyboarding. For some reason I already had book 2 and 3 but not book 1. Had not played for quite a few years and found this book extremely helpful in getting me started again. Will use it to further my self taught lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, May 4 2009
This is a timely, insightful look at politics in the U.S. Well written and easy to read and filled with possible solutions to some of the most pressing issues facing America right now. Obama truly does give us the Audacity to Hope........only wish politicians world wide felt and acted like this outstanding man.
