5.0 out of 5 stars A Thrilling Series, Oct. 28 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We first saw Haven on TV, but then it went off and we were left wondering. Finally I searched Amazon for it and found the series and season 1, 2, and 3. Cannot get enough of this!! It is thrilling, scary, funny, easy to watch and the actors are really wonderful.

It is filmed mainly in Nova Scotia, and where we live is right in the zone they were filming for season 4. Cannot wait to buy it. We spoke to some of the crew and told them what great fans we are of the series and they were very happy to hear it.

There are many weird things in life, and Haven seems to have them all plus a few we never think of. Great series, Great actors, Great writers and a Great crew.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good finish to the series, April 14 2013

Though some have said they don't like the acting in Twilight, I think it works just fine. I read all the books before seeing the movies and I believe they were very well done. Its nice to have the ending make sense, though it does leave you wondering a little. We watch these movies more than once and are glad to have the whole set. Worth the money to us!!

This review is from: Keeping Mum (DVD)
We first saw this movie on TV and wondered how we could get it to watch again. Amazon came thru for us and we have watched this one sever times already. I usually don't like 'Mr. Bean' movies, but Rowan Atkinson doesn't play Mr. Bean in this one and he is very, very good and believable as a reverend. Lots of surprises in this one and a very good laugh here and there. Worth having!

A movie that is different enough to keep us watching. Although its a western, its nothing like the westerns of old. This is completely different and really worth watching. Paul Gross is extremely good in this one. We really enjoyed it and will watch it over and over.

A joy to watch as the suspense builds with each episode. Will they find the artifact, or will it disappear to haunt them later on. A really good series and the acting is very good. We thoroughly enjoy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total Stupidity, April 14 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spaced: The Complete Series (DVD)
We watched the first three episodes of this 'Spaced", and were totally unimpressed. It is stupid, childish and not worth watching. The acting is not very good, and the scenario doesn't work. I think you would have to be smoking pot or taking LSD in order to understand or appreciate this series. I wish we had never bought it, it is a waste of time, plastic DVD , and money in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to believe, March 7 2012
This review is from: The Company Men (DVD)
We started to watch this DVD but the sound was garbled and the picture was fast one minute then slowed right down the next and we found it absolutely unwatchable. I have never had such a badly produced DVD. We thought it would be a really good story - and it might have been - if we could have watched and heard it.

We are very disgusted with this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwick Witches, pretty great!, Dec 28 2011
A winning movie for sure. We had this on VHS and when we got the DVD player we just had to buy the DVD. A superb movie, extremely well acted, funny and a bit scarey in places and one movie we keep on watching again and again. Love it!
