True Lies (Bilingual) <b>DVD</b> ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
True Lies (Bilingual) DVD ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
Went to amazon looking for comments about the poor DVD transfer of True Lies, which it really is. Got intrigued by the one star reviews of sexism and racism (some on-line too) and tried to figure out why I like this movie.

First of all, it is so clearly an unreal spoof. I cant understand the vituperative comments about sexism and racism except from the POV of people who think movies have way more influence than they ought to, although I do acknowledge, with some people they do.

2.0 out of 5 stars amazon misleads again, June 3 2013
Amazon(.ca) has again attached a "read inside" feature of one book to another completely different book, in this case of the paperback Penguin edition of Lord Byron Selected Poems to the Phoenix hardcover edition of the same title.

The hardcover Phoenix edition is also further misrepresented in that it is really 136 pages cover to cover including half a dozen blank pages, not 176, nor was it published March 1, 2004 as amazon lists (perhaps it was released then); its copyright date is 2003. Amazon really should list books like this completely… Read more
