1.0 out of 5 stars Zip broke after two camping trips., 7 April 2012
This review is from: Gelert Sleeping Pod (Sports)
Initially it was great for my niece, who doesn't like being cramped in a traditionally shaped bag, but the very lightweight, cheap and frankly poor quality zipper broke on the second time she used it camping. It's now a sleeping blanket, not a bag. So, not really recommended for any serious use; it's more of a toy. A real shame as otherwise it's a great idea, just shoddily made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap flexible tripod camera stand, 3 Oct 2010
Works fine. Took it on a hill-walking trip in Snowdonia, great for balancing the camera on uneven surfaces. Seems sturdy enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still works its magic, 19 Oct 2009
This book has a huge place in my heart, I can vividly remember reading it and having it read to me as a child. I bought it for my niece's third birthday and it was an instant hit with her also. She's a bit of a Wild Thing herself...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful. A real joy to see it again., 30 Dec 2008
This review is from: Private Schulz [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
Fantastic script laden with timebomb gags that you get a second or two later, oh-so subtle sight gags, notice the way Hitler holds his cup for example, a desperately excruciating plot for the unlucky(?) hero, superb character acting and humour from a great cast, by turns gentle, warm, hilarious and outrageous.

Certainly this was the wonderful Michael Elphick's finest hour (or six) and Ian Richardson's funniest one.

They didn't make too many like this and as I said above it is simply a real joy to watch it again, for me the first time since it was first broadcast when I was a teenager.

It's also entertaining watching it now to see the many other character actors in the cast who were fairly unknown at the time but who went on to do other things. There are at least four from "Eastenders" and two from "The Bill" among others. Not that either of those shows can ever shine a candle to this on any level.

Buy it.

PS: I've also just watched The Counterfeiters which deals with the same events in an altogether more realistic and serious way. It is stunning and also just has to be seen.

But I'd watch "Schulz" with it's innocence, gentleness and warm humour first, otherwise you'll just be crying too hard...

4.0 out of 5 stars "Ooh my Gawd! It's the wife...", 30 Dec 2008
Although he's not in it until at least half way through, this has Charles Hawtrey's greatest entrance line in any Carry On ever. It's as if the whole plot of the film is contrived for him to deliver this one line. A corker.

Frankie Howerd, "Avert your eyes...", Sid James "We'll down tools!", Joan Sims and many other regulars are all on fine form also.

And Valerie Leon. Cawooah!

The only duffer is the rather wooden Terry Scott also playing a "hunky" Tarzan character (just what were they thinking?) but you can't have everything. I guess there are some slapstick moments that suit him. It's just that you can't believe that his love interest would go for him, it should have been Roy Castle or Jim Dale, I reckon.

Oh alright, please yourselves...
