5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!, Oct. 26 2002
this is a very good movie, and the DVD release fully accentuates the goodness of the film. it comes with a french language track, the real french version (not dubbed in Québec), and there are many extras on the two CD set. i would have liked to have also seen a spanish and italian track, but life's not perfect. there is also an extra musical sequence, and the movie was quite fun to re-watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars good dict., Aug. 1 2002
This is a decent, solid dictionary. It has some typos, as in the very first page, but it has the words I need and the greek font it mostly clear. It was a good price, and so I recomend it, although I know better are out there!

4.0 out of 5 stars etsi kai etsi, July 28 2002
This review is from: 201 Modern Greek Verbs (Paperback)
I'm learning modern Greek and thus I needed a conjugation book to help me. This one is not the best. There is not a good verb conjugation book out there - yet. (If only 501 verbs would publish one!) In the 70s or 80s, the Greek language was modified. Before, there were many accents and Greek was more complicated. Now, there is typically only one accent per word, but this book isn't new enough to reflect that major change in the Greek language. For example, "ãgapó" - to love (i love), is written like that with two accent. In the new standard Greek, it's just 'Agapó". This is a good reference though, it does have complete conjugations, but not enough verbs. Also, sometimes the print is hard to read. But, if you want a reference source for Greek verbs, this is the best I've found.

5.0 out of 5 stars let's take a second look, July 28 2002
I own at least 8 Collins Gem Dictionaries for various languages. This product is a fine dictionary. I have always been pleased with Collins Gem language products, and their pocket dictionaries are indeed very mobile and durable. About the lack of Russian pronunciation - I'm not an expert in Russian, and of course there are exceptions and dipthongs that one must learn - but Russian IS A PHONETIC LANGUAGE! Why would you need a pronunciation guide? Learn the sounds of the Alphabet and you'll be able to pronounce it fine! It's not a difficult alphabet - try learning arabic and you'll appreciate the Cyrillic alphabet. Indeed!

4.0 out of 5 stars good product, April 6 2002
this is a pretty good phrase book
it comes with a tape, and make the pronounciation thus much easier and more benificial. this only have key phrases, enough to get a fairley solid base in greek from which one can expand. the key feature for me it the take, there is also the version w/o the tape for 6.95 i believe. it's worth it to pay more for the tape

2.0 out of 5 stars I Know, Dec 14 2001
Me, being a very big fan of Lois Duncan well, I was very dissapointed in the book. I saw the movie first and I guess that spoiled it. In my opinion, the movie was a lot better. The book wasn't very exciting and after seeing the movie it was dry with excitment and dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars pourquoi ne l'aimez-vous pas alors?, Dec 12 2001
I own this Dictionary, and it is my second french dic. after the Collins Gem pocket one. This dic. is complete enough to satisfy all the words I need to look up, was a great grammar section, tells usage and examples of important words and has cultural highlights. To refuke what the other reviews say, I've had mine for a year, I use it often, and her spine and pages are still well intact. Maybe I was lucky, but mine is used and no where close to falling apart. Ça me semble que vous avez un peu de mal change là, n'est-ce pas?

5.0 out of 5 stars La sua música è bellisima!!!, Dec 2 2001
This review is from: Romanza (Audio CD)
When I first heard Andrea Bocelli, I thought opera, and I didn't give him a chance. However, I recently heard one of the songs on this CD. Vivo Per Lei is absolutely the most beautiful and powerful song I have ever heard in my life. For that song and Con Te Partirò, I bought the CD, and after listening to the entire CD, I was very impressed. What BEAUTIFUL music! Andrea Bocelli takes me away. "Vivo per lei perche me fa vibrare forte l'anima, vivo per lei e non è un peso." [In reference to music] I live for her because she makes my soul vibrate strongly, I live for her, and it's not a weight [burden]." Listen to this amazing CD, hear those words and you can see for yourself how passioned Andrea is about his music. I'm just learning Italian, but possi dire che la sua música è di il suo cuore! (His music is from his heart.) Buy this CD, you may be surprised and at the very least, spiritually moved!!! = )

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie, Sept. 21 2001
Alot of my friends make fun of me for loving Babylone 5, but I have found in this series something special that holds my attention episode after episode. This movie is the first, and in my opinion, the best. It portrays the Earth-Minbari war, the the graphics, storyline, and acting are superb. A must see for any science fiction fan, although it does help to know the backstory to B5. Our last best hope for peace....
