4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid period piece, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like The Moonstone, this is a bit dated but still a very good mini-series. The film quality seems much better than The Moonstone.
Very good performances all round and a faithful rendition of Wilkie Collins' great novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cd, 11 Dec. 2013

If you are a 50s/60s pop fan, then this is for you even if you are not a great fan of Ms Shapiro. She was one of the true greats of pop at that time and what a powerful voice. The cd is a great showcase of all her hits.


Red Heat [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Arnie in top form., 11 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Red Heat [DVD] (DVD)
Arnie and James Belushi make an excellent duo. Belushi's wisecracking smart-arse cop plays excellently against Schwarzenegger's Soviet automaton of a policeman. And Arnie's performance is excellent. The line where he asks Belushi's character 'who is Dirty Harry' is a gem. One of my favourite Arnie movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great world war 2 action, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No questions or doubt about it. If you like war films, this triple pack must be in your film library. All three films are superb examples of their genre and frankly, I don't think we will see many more films of this calibre.


Heartbreak Ridge [1986] [DVD]
Heartbreak Ridge [1986] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Clint Eastwood
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastwood in top form, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of my favourite Clint Eastwood movies. He is so believable as the grizzled, veteran Marine sergeant. And tough? You'd better believe that he can 'piss napalm and chew barbed-wire'. The latter half of the movie is almost an anti-climax after the first half's thrilling, funny, heart-warming and dramatic scenes of Eastwood training the undisciplined rookies under him. Buy it.


The Girl Can't Help It [DVD]
The Girl Can't Help It [DVD]
Dvd ~ Tom Ewell
Price: £6.50

4.0 out of 5 stars great film of yesteryear, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Girl Can't Help It [DVD] (DVD)
You must buy this if only to watch the performances of oldies pop idols. The humour seems corny now but Jayne Mansfield! I think the term 'hour-glass figure' must have been coined after this film.


Ivanhoe [DVD] [1997]
Ivanhoe [DVD] [1997]
Dvd ~ Steven Waddington
Offered by A1-Media
Price: £21.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best version of Ivanhoe, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ivanhoe [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
This is easily the best film version of Sir Walter Scott's monumental novel. Some liberties have been taken (and really cannot be avoided if one does not want to end up with a 10 hour mini-series). Great mini-series with superb performances. Though not quite the great beauty of the novel, the actress who plays Rebecca will win your heart. Essential viewing for lovers of historical drama.


The Complete Collection

4.0 out of 5 stars very comprehensive cd, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Complete Collection (Audio CD)
I bought this purely on a critic's review. It's taken me a few listens for appreciation to build but I have no regrets.
Great music and there are some (for me) hidden gems. Songs I'd forgotten about and delivered in Ms Kirby's great style.
Buy it.


Ike - Countdown To D-Day [DVD] [2005]
Ike - Countdown To D-Day [DVD] [2005]
Dvd ~ Tom Selleck
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A short (short only because of the huge subject matter) film of the months before the allied invasion of Nazi occupied Europe in Jun 1945. No questions about it. If you like dramas and war films, this is an absolutely must. Tom Selleck may not look that much like Eisenhower but his performance is excellent. I'm a military fan and a sucker for films of this nature. Buy it, buy it, buy it . . . . . ..

Cliff Richard - An Audience With Cliff Richard [DVD]
Cliff Richard - An Audience With Cliff Richard [DVD]
Dvd ~ Les Dennis
Price: £6.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great performance, 11 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sir Cliff at centre stage with guest performers brought on at various intervals. An intimate and very watchable show. It's also fun to spot the notables of English film and stage in the audience who very obviously love this marathon man of British pop.
