For all Marlon Brando and Tennessee Williams fans a must-see picture! In my opinion one of the best Williams adaptations with the expectation of The Night of the Iguana. A stupendous treat for real film buffs.

If you have already read his first book "Green Zone" then you should not miss this compelling and jaw dropping account of the longest war the US have ever conducted.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good contemporary film noir, 24 Sept. 2012
This review is from: 52 Pick Up [DVD] (DVD)
Not one of the best Elmore Leonard adaptions but still worth watching Roy Scheider and Ann Margaret playing fervently a married couple with a bunch of predicaments.

I cannot complain about the prompt delivery and flawless condition of the dvd. If you are allergic to ants don't watch this movie. It's a real horror.

My book arrived in an excellent condition and just in time. No reasons for complaints at all. Besides it is a really intriguing account of the many failures the Bush administration made especially in terms of foreign policy issues.

Repo Man [DVD] [2003]
Dvd ~ Harry Dean Stanton
Price: £5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy and funny roadmovie, 20 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Repo Man [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
If you have never watched an Alex Cox film enjoy this wonderful low budget mixture of sci-fi movie and espionage thriller with really witty dialogues.
Besides you can recognise a very young Emilio Estevez in one of his first roles.
Harry Dean Stanton is as good as an actor as expected.

This review is from: French Connection II [DVD] (DVD)
I have always been a huge admirer of French Connection I and II. The first part had all the ingredients of a rapidly moving and utterly tense cop thriller with the plot situated in contemporary New York of the early seventies. I never thought the sequel would be equal of surpass the first movie. French Connectin II, though, is a superb, compelling and gripping sequel and watching it the first time in its original cut made it worthwhile. The story itself takes place in the southern french city of Marseille which is well known as one of the most dangerous cities in France.
Gene Hackman as Popeye tries to get accustomed to southern french culture he is soon going to realise the different investigating methods of the Marseille police. Being followed by underlings of his biggest enemy the french drug lord who he first encountered in the States Popeye Doyle is caught off guard and hauled away in a sanctuary of the criminals. There he is going to receive a harsh and gruesome treatment and is given a injection of heroin in his venes. This part of the film shows apparently the amazing acting skills of Hackman. How he overcomes this cruel ordeal is one the most chilling and shocking moments of the movie.
To sum up I really believe this film the better and more enthralling of the two.
Regarding the quality of French Connection II this dvd version does not have any flaws and mistakes and most of all the overall sound is immaculate.
So I honestly can recommend this wonderful film to all fans of suspense movies and of couse of Gene Hackman.
