5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing, Jan. 9 2004
Extremely entertaining and thought provoking movie. Its a near classic. Its like Menace II Society, only the main characters are nerdy asian "gangsters."

5.0 out of 5 stars The best programming language book, Dec 5 2003
and one of the best computer science books in general. It is very well written and organized, and doesn't get bogged down in minor details and extra information. It gets straight to the point, unlike another programming language book by Ravhi Sethi. The Ravi Sethi book probably has more information, but it's EXTREMELY poorly written/organized and bogged down with useless extra information (I think he just did that to seem smarter than he really is). I learned 5 times as much reading this book, while spending 1/5 of the time reading it (as compared with Sethi's book).
TO ALL COLLEGE PROFESSORS: PLEASE CHOOSE THIS BOOK IN YOUR PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE CLASS, NOT RAVI SETHI'S. PLEASE!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the great Slave To The Grind, Nov. 5 2003
This review is from: Subhuman Race (Audio CD)
but not many albums are. Better than their debut album...which was solid. Only GREAT song on here is Beat Yourself Blind...but this album is rock solid pretty much throughout. Other standout tracks include...My Enemy, Frozen, Breakin Down, Into Another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, Sept. 26 2003
The material is very hard, but the book is written in a way that makes it as easy to read as possible. There is TONS of information here. I usually like to highlight the important stuff when I read, but in this book, nearly everything is important and worth highlighting. In other words, there is no B.S.; they get right down to the point.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars is more accurate, Sept. 3 2003
People rag on this movie way too much. In spite of the cheesy dialogue, the movie is surprisingly pretty engaging. That is a sign that there are alot of good things going for it. The script does have its (very few) moments. The acting is good for the most part, and of course the action and special effects are outstanding. But I do agree that the movie seems to be trying way too hard to be emotional and moving. Alot of unnecessary scenes are in this movie just to make the characters look cool (like slow-motion exits from planes through smoke...with a flag in the background...i mean...come on). Of course I was hoping this movie was going to be a great oscar contending war movie or something. But, the movie was made by Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer...I accept it for what it is...a solid action movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple...but perfect, July 22 2003
This review is from: Rush Hour (Widescreen) (DVD)
Simply perfect. Tucker and Chan are perfect together. One of the most entertaining movies I have ever seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment, July 21 2003
Absolutely loved the first one, but this one was just OVER-done. Tucker is usually hilarious when he runs his mouth, but everything he said in this one seemed so forced and unfunny. There were exactly two moments in this movie where I let out a little chuckle. The fighting and action scenes were pretty good...but even those were a step down from chan's usual. He's gettin a little old.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, horrible, repetitive, terrible..., April 1 2003
are the words that describe this book. I am studying for a test right now and I can't bear to read even one more page. I'm not just saying this because its a school book and school is boring...this book is really excruciatingly repetitive and horribly worded. I gotta read alot of the stuff multiple times just to understand what this [guy] is trying to say. He could have simplified the book so it's half the length that it is. Ravi Sethi, the author, sounds like a [conceited person] who thinks he's so smart...He should be fined for writing this book and making poor college students like me read it. This book is causing me much mental anguish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic, Dec 18 2002
Not only is this the greatest heavy metal album of all time, it is also one of the greatest albums of all time in general. If only Axl could have kept it together, Guns N' Roses could have produced so many more classic albums. This is really one of those albums that nearly achieved musical perfection. Axl is the greatest heavy metal singer of all time. Slash is the greatest guitarist of all time (the guy just plays with so much soul and feeling). Here's my breakdown of the tracks on a scale of 1-10.
Welcome to the Jungle (10) Definition of a classic song.
It's So Easy (10) You can really hear Axl's vocal range, its not all screeching.
Nightrain (9) Just a great rocking song.
Out Ta Get Me (8) Axl just sings with such emotion. He's the 2Pac of heavy metal.
Mr. Brownstone (10) What a great and original song. Never has there been a rock song that sounded like this.
Paradise City (10) Another true classic.
My Michelle (10) Unbelievable, one of my personal favorites.
Think About You (8) Althought nothing special, still a great song.
Sweet Child O' Mine (10) Don't even have to say anything.
You're Crazy (9) Great song, but I personally prefer the acoustic version on GN'R Lies.
Anything Goes (10) Great hook, great riffs.
Rocket Queen (10) Unbelievable song, especially the finish. The song starts as a sleazy heavy metal song, then just transitions into a the type of song that just brings tears to your eyes.
