From Up on Poppy Hill  (Special Edition) [Blu-ray &hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Jamie Lee Curtis
3 of 4 people found the following review helpful
This disc is from a company I have never heard of. It is not a Disney release. Technically, the picture is extremely good, and the sound is a DTS-HD soundtrack. However, there is one thing they did which is a deal breaker , and that is that certain translations of on screen text have been hard subbed directly onto the picture and cannot be removed. This occurs on the Japanese track with subtitles too.

Doctor Who: Wheel of Ice: An Unabridged Doctor Who&hellip by Stephen Baxter
I was bed ridden for 6 weeks. This helped pass the time when hours never seemed to end. It is a very traditional second Doctor story. It is written by a vey well known SF author who really knows his subject matter, and it still comes over as a very good Doctor Who story at the same time.

As this is the 50th Anniversary, you… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Be careful when ordering, Oct. 16 2012
The first printing of this book is missing 2 pages of story and has been recalled. New copies are not ready yet so if you are reading this close to October 16th, it will be the incorrect version.

Feb 2013. This was supposed to be corrected, There are two pages inserted between pages 98 and 99 that have no numbers on them.

Unfortunately, the copy I ordered from here is not corrected. Looks like Amazon never returned their defective copies. DC just tipped in another page. The other reviewer is correct.

Amazon.com allegedly has corrected copies. I have ordered it from there. Will probably have to return this or donate it to someone. The copy arrived from… Read more
