    One Major Downfall in a Great Party Game…, November 21, 2004

    Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
    This review is from: Hasbro Shout About Movies#1 (DVD)

    This game is a great party game for anyone who is a movie fan. There are 8 very different rounds that each have a variety of questions, from movie quotes and naming titles of movies to interseting historical facts.

    The coolest part of the game is that it is completed played on the DVD player itself and doesn’t require a game board or any game systems. The game tracks your score for you, so you don’t need paper or the ability to add.

    The biggest downfall that nobody seems to mention is that this game can only be played 3 times!! $20 for a game that can only be played 3 times is a little pricey. When you put the DVD in your player, the game asks you to select a game that you haven’t played before and gives you 3 choices. The game is not like some of the other movie trivia games that shuffle their questions, it is the exact same game everytime.

    Final Verdict: A great party game that has trivia for everyone! Buy it used and then sell it or give it to a friend after you play the 3 games on the disk.

    This review is from: Hasbro Shout About Movies#1 (DVD)

    This is a great party game, and if you love movies you will have a blast playing this game with a group of friends. While given clues about various films, players divided into two teams will shout out movie titles, or landmarks, or movie stars. The game is simple to play, and the built in instructions and score-keeping are real time savers…there is no gameboard to deal with, dice to lose, or pawns to move so that is a real plus. But the main drawback to this game is that once you play the 3 games per dvd, you won’t go back to play it again because the questions asked on each game never change. Maybe if they combined the games on all 4 disks available onto one dvd you would go back and play again….because then it’s not as likely you would remember the answers, but with only 8 rounds per game and 10 or less questions or clues per round it’s hard not to remember what the correct answers are. The variety of films covered isn’t bad, but folks who enjoy older films of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s won’t find too many questions pertaining to films made prior to 1970, and horror fans will not find any questions pertaining to thier blood soaked genre. If you can find a copy of this game used, or for around $10 you should pick it up. But $20 seems a little steep for a game that will played and put away until forgotten.

    Great speakers for the size!, November 16, 2010

    This review is from: Pyramid MDC5 100 Watts 4-Inch Waterproof Flush mount 2 Way Marine Speaker System (Electronics)

    This is a great pair of marine speakers for the price. The speakers are very loud in the treble range, but the bass is decent for 4″ speakers. You can feel air movement from the front of these speakers a few inches away, but you’re not going to rattle the windows.

    The grill is made of white plastic along with the body. The speakers come with two thin wires and gold-plated terminals. The terminals are very tight when you insert into the speaker. The terminals are press fitted into a paper/plastic sheeting, so you have to be careful. You can break the leads on the speakers if you use force. You just need to make sure you put a finger on the back of the terminal before you press and add a little grease to make it slide easier.

    The wires are not “marine” quality, but what do you expect for this price? You can always replace them with better wires if you need to. If you have a 31′ Contender or Cabo, you wouldn’t be looking at these speakers anyways.

    It sounds great for its size!
