Soap - Complete Series
Soap - Complete Series
DVD ~ Billy Crystal
Price: CDN$ 25.48

5.0 out of 5 stars Still classic comedy after all these years!, July 24 2016
This review is from: Soap - Complete Series (DVD)
Still entertaining, and far better than much of what I've seen lately. Very funny spoof of soap opera's - if anyone had to make fun of them, this was the best cast/ scripting. The last year was a little far fetched, but then soap opera's are that too

2.0 out of 5 stars Was hoping for more, and ran a lot slower than expected, June 22 2016
This review is from: Brooklyn (Bilingual) (DVD)
Could not finish watching it went that slow. the first 45 minutes centered a lot around a table full of cackling women. Am happy that I borrowed it rather than spend my money on it.
It isn't that I'm into "action" packed or violent movies, but they need a better story line and need to move a little faster to keep my interest. This movie they would stop and play that boring music to accentuate a feeling that they want to get across which is annoying, and feels as if they are just filling in time with music. Movies like The Best Offer and This is Where I leave You were not action movies, but went quickly (for two hour long each) they did not get hung on a scene and play music, it actually kept "moving" instead of getting stuck.
Oh well, enough about me, not my style of movie, but many seem to enjoy the long drawn out love stories

and with these, you put them together, find the edges that match, and you've created a puzzle that you read as a fortune. Innovative, entertaining, love it

which is a great topic. Had thought I try it since Joseph gordon Levitt was in it. It was a good movie, but guess just not in my top favorites. did give it away for someone elses enjoyment

2.0 out of 5 stars the first book of this trilogy was the best, March 3 2016

where he was actually building up the characters. Though I read other books between, did not forget the characters and they were not that far apart from each other between book 1, 2 and 3 - but by the last one, he kept repeating things from the prior 2 books (as a reminder in case we forgot?). I felt as is he was not writing anything new in the last one, just putting in excerpts and reminders from the first two books.
I typically like his writing overall with the exception of a couple, albeit in some of his early books he used the word Although at least once a page, if not more.
I did have to put the book down it was so repetitious, and have not had the want to get back to it to find out what happened to the characters

3.0 out of 5 stars had wanted to borrow from library but their copies went missing, Feb. 20 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Big Fish Bilingual (DVD)
so purchased it here when price was a little lower, though still not a bad price. Was expecting more from this movie with the cast and storyline. Not the worst I've ever seen, but average, a little different than what I'm used to. would have rather borrowed it, since it is not something I would watch again. I had borrowed This is Where I leave you with Justin Bateman and liked it so much to purchase for my own colection. I would not put this as high a rating as that movie, this being average in my opinion compaired to the other

5.0 out of 5 stars right when I needed a role model growing up ..., Feb. 14 2016
This review is from: Maude: The Complete Series (DVD)
And then there's Maude. Outspoken, Opinionated, LIberated (if only the women and girls of this new millenium were half as strong as this character). God bless Norman Lear for starting this character, airing her right where it would be perfect on All in the Family, and selecting the perfect person to play the role: Beatrice Arthur. This character was the one who taught me that it is okay to stand up for yourself, speak up and be heard. Finally it has come out on DVD and will eventually make it's way into my library
