Marvellous restoration by Criterion of this seminal Fassbinder film!

Reviewed by on

This is a wonderful restoration. I don't believe I have ever seen a Fassbinder film looking this good. The 1970s Kodachrome cinematography by Michael Ballhaus looks unbelievable. The image is incredibly detailed with grain rendered perfectly in every frame. Pause anywhere in the film and it looks like a page from a Taschen photographic book!

Not a 5 Star

Reviewed by on

I had to write something. Search "facial animation" and you'll see how funny and bad it is.

The voice acting seems bad, strange animations (robot, stiff like) and holding a gun backwards and shooting.

I saw this was a top seller, people might want a refund for this.

Hold out on buying. Raru might take a hit, because people might want refunds.

Who knows Mass Effect Andromeda might be good.

This product is really great value for money. They Blu-Ray adaptation of the film is excellent, and this two blu-ray set has hours of extras: commentaries, documentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, interviews and an interactive "director's diary" navigation feature.

Death Note Novel - Review

Reviewed by on

Overall it was an interesting read. It doesnt have a Death Note in it and there is no Kira seeking to build a utopia, but the psychological aspects of Death Note are still there. Characters we know from the show are expanded and given a chance to show their true colors in this novel. Finally, the novel builds itself a great climax to end it off and to the casual readers like me who prefer having the answers laid out for them instead of trying to solve them as most mystery fans would do, be ready for a surprise. It is a unique experience for Death Note fans, although I would say that only a Death Note fan could understand and enjoy the novel to the extent that I have. My only complaint is that some portions of the story is quite unbelievable and almost ridiculous

All you need is kill - Review

Reviewed by on

I enjoyed this manga so much that I read it completely in a few hours.The story hooks you up with the first few pages and keeps you interested until the end. The art is also really good, the characters look really nice and the exoskeletons and weapons, they use, look quite fantastic as well .While you're reading this, you'll feel excited, sad and even confused at moments. If a story is capable of doing this, it must be an enjoyable story.Fans of science-fiction might want to give it a try, as well as fans of the military genre.

Solid - no problems so far

Reviewed by on

The need for RS-232 connectivity is declining steadily, but for some legacy equipment and professional/industrial devices, you still need it. Almost all laptops have dropped RS-232 ports in favour of USB now, so when you need one of these adapter cables for use in a portable/laptop application, chances are good that you need it bad!
I bought this one specifically to let my laptop talk to an old alarm control panel which has an RS-485 port and requires a 25-pin RS232-to-RS-485 converter in addition to a USB-to-RS232 converter. Since most USB-to-RS-232 converters come with a DB-9 connector, I needed a 9-to-25-pin adapter as well, which made the whole cable arrangement very clunky to use.
I'd previously had problems with a GoldX GXMU-1200 USB-to-RS232 converter (which had a DB-9 serial connector) and would often cause my Windows 7 laptop to Blue Screen in the middle of a comms session - very annoying. This Lindy converter was one of the few I could find with a DB-25 connector, so made the cable chain that little bit smoother as well. I've also found it to be completely reliable in use, even though it seems to use the same Prolific PL2303 converter chip as the GXMU-1200, and hence a very similar driver. Unlike the GXMU-1200, it's been rock solid in use.
Apart from that, the unit is of good quality and has a nice flexible cable that's easy to use. Not too exciting, but one of those cool and rare Things That Just Work.
Buy with confidence!

Reviewed by on

How the other review on this game can even compare New Vegas with Fallout 4 is absurd. New Vegas is THE best game in the Fallout series since it's move to the first person aspect and 3D enviroment. With the DLC included in this edition and the huge modding community the exists for this game you wont run out of content.

No regrets, but...

Reviewed by on

First off, this is a great game with a lot of replay value. You don't need the original Small World to play this, and no knowledge of it is required either.
However, I do find that the game is a bit "heavy" for casual players. There are many races and abilities to understand and consider, and even after multiple plays, we still find ourselves frequently consulting the guide.
I don't regret the buy, but this is one of the least played games in my collection.

I love this book. It is made with quality paper, packed with great photos and the recipes are easy and use ingredients that are not difficult to get hold of, even in South Africa. I am going to buy more Pioneer Woman books.
