Andrew’s Blu-ray Review – Kind Hearts and Coronets (Robert Hamer, 1949) As jet black as comedies come, 'Kind Hearts and Coronets' makes even multiple murders seem funny and even somewhat endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars British movie making at its finest. 15 Aug 2014
Great hi def release of 3 classic Ealing films.
A joy to behold in hd with virtually nil scratches and good contrasts to boot.
Timeless entertainment in its best release visually, yet.
A reasonable amount of extras, but as this vol.1 of more to come presumably, a nice documentary or 2 would have been a nice touch. DEAD OF NIGHT is available on its own and looks fab, and has a nice documentary.
Overall well worth the hd upgrade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Beat the Ealing Comedies! 4 Jun 2014
By Akela

Three hilarious British classics from the late forties and early fifties, all of them starring Alec Guinness. If you only know him as Obi-Wan from STAR WARS, you need to get this set! Crisp black and white with good contrast and detail.

This set makes me hunger for Volume 2 (what will the next three films be? THE LADYKILLERS? TIGHT LITTLE ISLAND (WHISKEY GALORE)? TITTFIELD THUNDERBOLT?
