Excellent Chapter

Reviewed by on

This is an excellent chapter in the PA series. It directly follows on PA3 and the extended edition with alternate ending expose a lot of the story and adds quite a lot of depth.

Fans of this series will not be disappointed in this entry of the series.

This chapter does stretch the 'found footage' aspect of PA a lot, but if you suspend your disbelief and don't take it all too serious and watch it for what it adds to this story, you will have a great time.

There are a couple of good scares and creepy moments in here.

Loved it!

Reviewed by on

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. A fantastic nonstop action movie but with heart too. Great themes of redemption, forgiveness, courage, and friendship. They have added some strong female characters, which is nothing new to this franchise, and refreshing to our modern times, no one is diminished to bring them to full rights. Spoiler alert, I liked the fact that they took the story in a new direction. The fact that Skynet was defeated, means Terminator 2 stays intact. What they had to do and sacrifice then to prevent it was successful. The new timeline preserves the originals, but allows for new ventures. It's too bad so many people benched it because of their preconceived ideas and never gave it a chance. I would love to see these characters on screen again.

End of an Era

Reviewed by on

As a long time Star Wars fan, I can't say I've enjoyed this latest trilogy all that much. The first seemed like it was on the right track to making a new fun and exciting trilogy, a bit of a breathe of fresh air, the 2nd film was just plain terrible, and then we were given the 3rd and final "The Rise of Skywalker".

To be honest, I really struggled to stay awake in this movie, it was just so boring. Director JJ Abrams attempted to appease fans and we had an original actor or too reappearing just to make folks excited, but really, by the end of the movie I didn't care any more. There is a much better tv series, "the Mandalorian", and the last Star Wars movie I saw that was actually reasonable was "Rogue One". Watch this movie if you want, but you have been warned.

Description incorrect

Reviewed by on

I ordered this item. Raru's description and sleeve-picture state very clearly that it is the 45th anniversary 2 disc edition. However what they sent me is the very ordinary single-disc edition with no special features.
I already had this edition, so now I have two identical copies, but still no 2nd disc of anniversary content. We trust Raru to get the description correct but no. Very disappointing.
Anyone want to buy a single disc version of Mary Poppins cheap ?

Raru Admin Note
Thank you for letting us know. We have now corrected the cover for Mary Poppins. We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.

I ordered this item. Raru's description stated that the audio includes Dolby ATMOS. However the audio on the Blu-ray disc they sent is standard Dolby 5.1, not even 7.1..... Clearly the previous reviewer doesn't have ATMOS playback capability, 'else he should have noticed.
Very disappointing because we depend on the description being correct and it's not.....

Terminator Dark Fate.

Reviewed by on

As the name suggests, this film paints a dark fate for the Terminator franchise.
The film that was advertised as being the true continuation of the Terminator franchise, turned out to be nothing more than a forced feminist agenda disguised as a movie with the hopes of making money from a non-existent target audience... & they couldn’t even get that right, since every time our heroes find themselves in trouble, they need to be saved by a man.
The film may have even worked to a degree with the concepts they came up with, but killing off John Connor in the first 5 minutes of the movie, just felt like they didn't respect the original 2 films that started it all. The story is appalling, so no matter how good the performances, action scenes, or CGI are, the film just disappoints. The one good thing was the capabilities of the new terminator.
Unfortunately, the film was such a huge failure that the franchise is practically dead. Nobody will invest in a another Terminator movie any time soon.

As his other genuine films show, Tati is a genius. This is his very worst work, a bad Swedish TV show when he is sadly long past his best. Out of kindness and respect to Tati, one should not watch this at all.

Nothing is what it seems

Reviewed by on

And neither is this film which was marketed as a spy thriller - recruit versus recruiter, rookie versus mentor - but is actually a human drama involving a bereft son searching for answers about his father who disappeared years prior to the events of the story and who may have been a prominent CIA agent other than just a Shell Oil worker.

Violent in parts, funny in some and all parts add up to a great whole with Colin Farrell, Al Pacino, Bridget Moynahan and Gabriel Macht as the stars giving it their all.

Enjoyable movie...Missing Features

Reviewed by on

It chapter 2 is a very enjoyable adventure thriller. I am reluctant to refer to it as a horror movie as I did not find it very scary. Chapter 1 is the far superior movie, but I still had a tonne of fun with chapter 2.

Unfortunately, the South African blu ray of chapter 2 is missing disc 2 of the set, which includes most of the bonus features. Therefore, this copy only includes the directors commentary.

I should probably have watched this original Ring before the American version- this version is very quiet and focuses on the lady journalists search for the story/video. The US version is much more of a permeating evil atmosphere with more detail in 'found' video and the child's story.

DVD Faulty

Reviewed by on

Quality disappointment. DVD has faulty sound and image. Problem is if you buy a couple of DVD's you can not view them all to check the condition. By the time you watch them it is too late for return. Lesson, never order more than 2 DVD's (especially local) to allow you enough time to watch and return if faulty. I prefer overseas DVD's because their quality is high and never disappoints.

Wasted potential for a great T.V. show!

Reviewed by on

Don't believe that five star rated review. This show had great potential, that's it show creators and so called writing team ruined for cheap shock and seriously badly written plot.
Characters are so unrecognizable in this season ( as well for the last two to three seasons previous ) thanks to some of the laziest writing I have seen, in a T.V. show in long time.

Great visuals and production design. Acting was also good with what they were given.

Spend your money and time elsewhere. Not worth it. Main Books and side books are much, much better by George RR Martin, rather buy those!
