Many people argue that computers and the Website have already had a great impact on our lives and that they are gradually turning us into a lot less active people. But when it comes to being practical and costly precious time, the perspective changes extremely. Why waste a lot of time and patience doing something when you have a far better alternative? Really want to spend that time doing anything you like, such as watching movies that will be delivered to you hence conveniently through due to on line movie rentals?

The Big Sleep User reviews


Oh, man, what a movie! Perfect on every sense. Great cast, with terrific Bogart and Bacall. Complex and interesting plot and smart dialogues. Only "funny" thing, if we want to say something, is the "perception" of the women roles in the movie. They are strangely all sexy and attracted to and tempting Philip Marlow.


This continues the incredible run of films Bogie made with now-wife Lauren Bacall. Crackling script ran to perfection by Howard Hawks. Essential, especially for fans of detective thrillers or simply well-made movies.
