3.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed its first outing on TV, 15 Dec 2014
This review is from: Monkey! - Episodes 1-3 (DVD)
Nostalgia was the main reason for opting to rent this DVD. I really enjoyed its first outing on TV. However that was many years ago and it really hasn't stood the test of time. I think the problem is the technology now used in producing such fantasy films has improved so much. 'Monkey!' now seems very out of date.

I bought this model in Feb. 2014 and was very satisfied with it until the trip switch became unstable so has to be held down for a long time before it will remain on position

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable - but..............., 22 Oct 2014
This review is from: Skyfall (DVD)
Like the 'curate's egg' this was good in parts. Daniel Craig makes an acceptable Bond without all the constant jumping in and out of beds as in some of the originals did find though 60% of my time was spent watching the DVD while the remainder was spent doing a crossword while listening rather than watching. Judi Dench made an excellent 'M' and it will be interesting to see how her successor develops the part.

4.0 out of 5 stars Puzzle - Where's The Emperor?, 13 Oct 2014
Entertaining and beautifully filmed as are most of the Chinese fantasy films. The title is misleading as Jet Li plays an abbot who doubles as a sorcerer and is never seen wearing a red robe such as that shown on the DVD cover. This film is really something of a romance with added 'extras' with the special effects being good. There is though no happy ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing Film, 4 Oct 2014
This review is from: Saving Mr. Banks (DVD)
I wold imagine there must have been some cinematic tweaking of some of the facts but this is quite a thought provoking and absorbing film. Excellent performances from both Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks. An interesting view of the background to the book about Mary Poppins and considering how some other 'classics' have been produced, one can understand the author's reasons for not wanting her book to have the full 'Disney Treatment'. However if the whole is to be believed, the outcome for P L Travers seemed to be psychologically as well as financially beneficial and has certainly proved very popular with children and adults. Personally I used to really enjoy reading the book to my two sons when they were young.

Okay but I am still trying to fathom out programming the ring tone. Telephone seems to have a mind of its own!
