This is the best backup solution for your data that I can think of. Clone your drives regulary so you can swap them out if the primary one fails. This product works fast and is precise and error-free. I highly recommend this item for your data preservation needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great DC Animated feature, Dec 7 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a completely worthy purchase for any true Batfan. Strong story, great voice acting, great animation (including fantastic action set pieces) all the way through. In my opinion, this disc is worth the $25 alone for the Batman going through the car thrown at him and coming out the other side. Eh, but I'm biased for all things Batman, but I feel that this is the character done right, another worthy interpretation by talented writers and artists.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, Dec 7 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hannibal [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The film's a '10' in my book-- I think it's a highly underrated triumph, turning some of the conventions established in Silence of the Lambs on its ear (i.e., making the antagonist Hannibal Lecter, an almost sympathetic protagonist without compromising the essential nature of the character).

Opinion on the film aside, this disc is not worth your money. Image-wise, it is barely an upgrade from the DVD-- a step back when you consider that all the great documentary extras have been removed. I'm not the videophile some of my fellow reviewers are, but the poor presentation is identifiable even to a non-expert like me. Avoid this one, wait for a proper release down the road.

This review is from: Let Me In [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A gory, horrific, somehow sweet coming of age story. I don't know how else to describe this film. Incredibly written, acted, and directed, this remake of the Swedish film "Let The Right One In" is about a young tormented boy meeting his new neighbour, who is not altogether as she seems. The image quality and sound mix are excellent, some good extras with some insight into the film. One of my favorite films of 2010, and this blu-ray release does it justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the upgrade, Dec 7 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This blu-ray presentation is as good as these films will probably ever look without Paramount making the investment to completely restore these films to their maximum potential. That being said, this set is a great upgrade and a great value. One final note: the Bob Wise Director's cut of TMP from a few years back was not included-- worth the double dip if it ever gets released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon is Jericho, May 16 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Chris Jericho is a fascinating person-- an outstanding performer, confident yet humble in his own shortcomings, an incredible talent. The masterpiece that is this book only adds to his credibility as a genius in his own right (and not just in the wrestling ring). Not only is Chris talented, but he realizes that talent only gets you so far. He is willing to work twice as hard as the guy next to him, and is willing to change and adapt and improve constantly, never satisfied.

The discussions of Chris Benoit in the book are the most emotional in the book. Jericho's perspective on the life of Chris Benoit is worth the price of the book alone. However, there are also great chapters in the developing career of a superstar in both the wrestling ring and the musical stage. This is an excellent book.

In these days of little originality and derivatives, the Oatmeal stands out with his edgy and witty humour. This book is a great value, very funny and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars "2001"-- What Else Can I Say?, May 16 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I can say little about the film-- it's all been said. Kubrick was the master. In terms of this Blu-Ray disc, the presentation is of reference quality, incredibly vivid and textured. The steelbook case is very cool, and a nice alternative to the traditional packaging. Incredible value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the Blu-Ray Worth Waiting For, May 16 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fear and Loathing on Criterion Blu, the way it was meant to be presented. Astonishing picture presentation, wonderful bonus materials (including Hunter Thompson's own DVD commentary of the film). The only way to enjoy this movie for true lovers of the movie and of HST.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Read, May 16 2011
This is an excellent read-- part biographical, part primer on the nuts and bolts of the dirty and difficult business of boxing. The protagonist, Micky Ward, has led a charmed life of pitfalls, obstacles, mistakes, and redemption. This book is also very illustrative of the "sweet science" of boxing-- every bout a strategic war, every ring a battlefield.

The film "The Fighter" is based upon this book. It's an excellent movie, but this book delves into the finer details that were consolidated for dramatic purposes. Also, the tough life of a professional boxer is even more clearly defined within this book. Micky Ward was one of boxing's greats and certainly one of the most memorable to watch in terms of dramatic fights between the ropes. I highly recommend this book.
