Brilliant concept superbly acted. Simon Baker is Sherlock Holmes for the 21st century and superbly "dry" with it.

This review is from: The Monuments Men [DVD] (DVD)
A war movie with a different slant on the same cruelty that was and in some present day regimes still is practiced. Brilliant story well acted. The fact that the core of the tale is true just adds to the whole experience

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky and well directed, enjoy from behind the sofa., 23 Nov. 2014

Some are more deeply disturbing than others. Peter Vaughan (Harry Grout from Porridge) is brilliant in a straight role. Robert Hardy's part in The Stalls of Barchester is as good as many of the classic greats of the black and white cinema. Be afraid!!!

Tear jerker for the ladies and a passing fair war story for the rest of us. Point scorer for the lads as a two tissue box story to keep your beloved happy by being soulfully sad. :o)

The film is fairly true to the book. Heath Ledger is excellent as Harry the man of conscience and the whole cast and location filming add up to a well crafted tale very well delivered

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch and learn the true course WW2, 5 Dec. 2013
A sad but well executed documentary. We should all take time to know our past as it always shapes our future. Olivier at his vocal best with much detail and a deep truth that had not been voiced before

The supposed wrongs that Sam has to put right are leading up to his own unknown life changing time leap at the end to say more would ruin it. Watch and enjoy

This review is from: The Stone Tape [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
Just as I remember the original tv programme. My son is an X Files fan and he was only disappointed that it was a "one off" drama
