4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining, 24 Feb 2012
the film is entertaining and like the revenge of frankenstein does not have a monster but an ordinary man which to me defeats the object.apart from that it is a well acted film but the story is standard and does not stand out but hey its a horror movie and not supposed to be a great work like shakespeare.the other thing i thought was not right was the rape scene frankenstein may have been a murderer and graverobber but not a rapist as his crimes were committed for the betterment of mankind and rape does not fit with this.for all its faults it is still a good hammer movie and should be in any hammer fans collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars great drama, 24 Feb 2012
This review is from: Ladder 49 [DVD] (DVD)
this movie tells the story of a firemans life in flashbacks.john travolta is great as n pheonix shows his truly magnificent acting skills.this film shows all emotions joy,excitement,drama and tears and is a fitting tribute to the men that risk their lives everyday to save ours.what it is not is a macho show of pumping testosterone but a moving story of real life heros with familys,freinds and workmates.

5.0 out of 5 stars cinamatic masterpiece, 24 Feb 2012
This review is from: Papillon [DVD] (DVD)
this movie is the best prison escape film ever made not only that you have two of the greatest actors of all time mcqueen and hoffman and if thats not good enough in my opinion these are the roles that are their best.this is the story of two men serving time in a brutal french penal colony and their attemts at escape,it is based on a true story and shows the inhumane treatment of the prisoners.if you want an all action film this is not for you but if you like a film with a proper story ,engaging characters and real depth you cant do better.

An American Werewolf In London - Special Edition [DVD]
Dvd ~ David Naughton
Price: 5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars a howling success, 24 Feb 2012
this movie has everything horror, humour and great special effects which considering this was made in the early eighties is amazing.there are so many great scenes in this film including transformations,killings and my favourite the piccadilly porno theatre.there is also some famous faces such as brian glover,jenny agatter and rick mayall.the other thing that this film boasts is a great soundtrack with songs such as blue moon and bad moon rising.the extras are good even I watched them which is saying something.if you dont have this in your collection you dont have a collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars going against critics, 24 Feb 2012
the critics have really picked this film to pieces but i love it, of all the frankenstein films this is my favourite.it does not follow on from the first two infact it changes the story so they could make the film they wanted.there are several plus points to this film that the first two did not have first of all a really scary monster on a parallel with the universal monster,secondly it has a not bad looking female that cant talk hooray,thirdly it has an evil hypnotist who you may recognise as reg delboys dad in only fools and horses and fourth you get a proper horror movie ending which comes about by a drunken monster what more could you want.

The Revenge of Frankenstein [DVD] [1958]
Dvd ~ Peter Cushing
Price: 4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars revenge, 24 Feb 2012
this is a really good sequal the acting is good the sets are also ok not as grand as the original,the only criticism is that the monster is a bloke pulling a face.cushing is in fine form and being ably assisted by francis mathews cushing has changed his name to stein and moved town where he transplants the brain of a disabled man into the dead body of a fully fit one (fit apart from the fact hes dead) then brings him back to life.

4.0 out of 5 stars truly great, 24 Feb 2012
although not horrific until towards the end of the movie it makes up for it then meanwhile you have the shower scene to console yourself with.apart from shawshank and green mile this is the best film adaptation of a stephen king novel ever made.you cannot go wrong with this film buy it now you wont regret it and get ready to be horrified it will also make you jump out of your skin so be warned.

a great adventure romp starring ursula andress ,cushing, lee and bernard cribbins.andress provides the eye candy magnificently while cribbins plays the stooge with great ease.i cannot recommend this higher it was one of my childhood favourites and still is to this day.

4.0 out of 5 stars frankenstein, 24 Feb 2012
this film is hammers first horror and the first time pairing of cushing and lee.it is based on mary shelleys novel and does the book some justice,just as a side note i have been to mary shelleys house in bournemouth and have been in the theatre where her ghost has been seen and the room where she kept her dead husbands heart.the film is one of the best adaptations of this gothic horror along with two of the best horror actors of all time makes this an unmissable.there is also a small role for melvyn hayes (aint half hot mum) as the young frankinstein,lee not only makes a great dracula but also the scariest monster as well.this movie can be bought for under a tenner so dont rush into buying an expensive copy look about and wait its worth it in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars its a ripper, 23 Feb 2012
i must point out that this rating is for hands of the ripper only as the other two films are very poor.the film is a twist on the ripper story a young girl wittnesses the death of her mother at the hands of her father who is jack the ripper,later in life when ever transfixed by sparkling light and kissed on the cheek she takes on the persona of her father and deaths soon follow.in my opinion this is one of the best hammer films ever made and if buying this film means being lumbered with the other two then its worth it.
