Tarzan Of The Apes (Adventures of Lord Greystoke)
Tarzan Of The Apes (Adventures of Lord Greystoke)
by Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.19

4.0 out of 5 stars The real Tarzan, 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rice Burroughs' original conception of Tarzan as a stranded English Lord, of which the Hollywood movies were a travesty. His writng is somewhat stilted for us nowadays, but still something of a classic.

Mapp & Lucia: The Complete Series [DVD] (1985-1986)
Dvd ~ Prunella Scales
Price: £13.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy from start to finish., 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A joy from start to finish, this is THE version of Mapp and Lucia,, the recent BBC production alas sadly far behind in every way. All the casting is perfect, wonderfully camp, very funny, and superbly dressed. It is in 3:4 old dimensions of screen, and while quite acceptable, the picture quality is not HD. But go out and buy it if you love Benson's camp and cutting wit and fun.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This rather neglected BBC series on the revolutionary Pre-Raphaelites, though, as with many BBC productions, is not in Blu-ray, though perfectly acceptable, was the first big role for Aidan Turner, whose acting talents and physical beauty, are now universally acknowledged in "Poldark" . Much recommended for a fine romp through the lives of a group of anti-Establishment men and their unconventional loves

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An outstanding movie, superbly played by all, with a stunning performance by Benedict Cumberbatch. It is also a reminder of the dark days when gay men were persecuted by law - most especially a man who was a hero and inventor, now honoured with a statue and Queen's pardon.

Effie Gray [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Dakota Fanning
Price: £13.10

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine and moving movie, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Effie Gray [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A fine and moving movie, elegantly written by Emma Thompson, though the ending does not give enough sense of Effie having moved on to marry Millais and become a happy mother.
