5.0 out of 5 stars Whedon? Genius. Blu-Ray? Pretty damned good., Oct. 31 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was sent a voucher for this product as consolation for the botched launch of the Avengers Phase 1 Mega Ultra Crazy Edition. First of all: good on Amazon for taking the [Avengers] initiative and giving their customers something to chew on while we wait for spring 2013.

The Blu-Ray combo pack has a fair bit of content and a fantastic transfer of the movie. You can't really go wrong with the film unless you hate life - it is a master tapestry woven together by the vision of Mr. Whedon. The extras, including the one-shot, are all fantastic. Although, to be honest, I wish they made beefier gag reels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still slingin'!, July 24 2011

I am enjoying this series more than the original books - believe it or not! Luke Ross' fine work along with a solid story from Peter David make these pages easy to turn, but difficult to leave behind. If you're looking for (in my opinion) the best incarnation of the Dark Tower series, look no further!

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent read - but only if you're interested, March 24 2011

As a former student of psychology, I can certainly appreciate this book on a different level than a lot of people that haven't studied the "soft" sciences. This book is a great collection of essays based around the popular TV Show: House M.D..

If you are interested in theories about what's going on in peoples' minds, I would highly recommend this book. It is a quick, enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great tribute to a great man., Feb. 9 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Blu-Ray is a great buy. With a wonderful transfer of the movie and a few extras, it has enough to keep you occupied for a while! The movie itself is a well-made movie. While taking liberties with the life of Ip Man, it does a good job portraying his character and his passion for empowering the underdogs.

This game will keep you endlessly busy. There are several levels to achieve with each game, plus mini-games and random perfect medal attempts.

Good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Evolution of Awesome, Feb. 9 2009

This review is from: Evolution of Physics (Paperback)
This book is a wonderful glimpse into history. The forward by Isaacson really sets up the work of Infeld and Einstein as nothing short of extraordinary.

Physics for laypeople.

It's a must-read for people interested in understanding the thought process behind the two flavours of Relativity.
