5.0 out of 5 stars Gosling's break out role, Feb. 15 2013
This review is from: Fracture (Widescreen) (DVD)
Hopkins is stellar as usual, and Gosling begins to come into his own as an actor in this movie. If you like a suspenseful drama that has several twists combined with great acting, this is your movie. I believe this is the film that really put Gosling on the map.

Watching it the 10th time was just as good as the first time around. Seriously underrated and brings a lot to the table.

Make your popcorn, grab a soda and enjoy this gem - you'll thank me for it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would you believe?..., Dec 15 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Get Smart series is old fashioned comedy at its best. I only gave this 4 stars because many young people today many not find this kind of humour funny anymore because their sense of humour has changed to a much cruder level; often requiring shocking events or locker-room humour.

Having seen this series when it first aired, and having a great appreciation for clean and clumsy humour, I recommend this series to families and viewers of all ages. You will come to appreciate Don Adams and the "spy business" in a whole new light.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the best, March 16 2012
This review is from: Very Best Of Live (Audio CD)
I have seen so many young people engage their faith and develop their relationship with God through Praise and Worship - style music. Hillsong is one of the most popular groups these days. This CD contains good versions of their best sellers. The CD is sure to be a hit with any Worship enthusiast. Personally I like all 17 songs on this album. Very rare to enjoy half the songs on any CD, let alone all of them. A great purchase or a thoughtful gift for anyone looking to deepen their relationship with God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable Television Series, March 16 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
One of my favorite Star Trek series when I was younger. The first couple seasons are slow going, but the last 3 seasons are amazing and worth the wait. The character development is outstanding and you really feel like you are a part of this crew. There is something for everyone in the series, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best movies of all-time, Dec 30 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Jane Austen's classic novel was magnificently put into film with this BBC production. While the movie spans 5 1/2 hours, it is well worth it. The character development, quality acting, and outstanding plot make it a must see. I rarely watch any movie twice, but this one I watch over my holidays every year.

My only negative comment is that both dvds make a static-like sound in the background while they play. It can't be my DVD player because no other movies make this sound. Maybe there is something wrong with the DVDs I bought? Hopefully nobody else has this problem.

Watch this movie - you will love it. Two big thumbs up from this Padre!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift to all Christians, Oct. 21 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A few years ago, Ignatius Press started publishing Study guides with commentary, notes and reflection questions for each book of the New Testament. This Bible is a compilation of all these guides for each book in the NT. I bought all the guides and loved them. This one-volume New Testament with Commentary is much easier to refer to than all the paperback booklets. I received this as a gift and am going through each book again rediscovering the beauty of Sacred Scripture.

I also see that Ignatius Press is starting to publish paperback booklets on the Old Testament. I can't wait! This Study Bible for the New Testament is a great gift idea for young people celebrating their Confirmation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless resource set by Schmaus, Oct. 21 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Dogma Series by M. Schmaus is a great resource for those wanting to dive deeper into their faith. Perfect for theologians, but also very accessible for the average "Curious Catholic" seeking to better understand what we believe. I strongly recommend this book, and the whole 6-book series by Schmaus.
