The Adventure Of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother [1975] [DVD]
The Adventure Of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother [1975] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gene Wilder
Price: 4.95

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so much a smart movie, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A dreadful film. Sadly Gene Wilder, was miscast as the detective in this film. He was over the top and could not save this film. The plot was not great. It was not a great movie, nothing like the very funny, Young Frankenstein.
Only Marty Feldman and Leo McKern kept my attention. But saying that Mr McKern's character was under rated and always seemed like he was on the wrong set.
My husband fell asleep ,15 minutes in, that's how good it was.

A excellent film. A mix of modern and classic film making. Mixing current stars, Jude Law along side a digitalised version of Laurence Olivier was a good idea. It passed the time away.
The arrival of this item was quick, the DVD was in good condition. Would order from this supplier again.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-cellent, 4 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X The Unknown [DVD] (DVD)
A good sci fi from the great Horror masters, the Hammer studios. Like the Quatermass films, this film has a tendency to keep you hooked, by making the viewer guessing what's going to happen next. The acting was very good and the effects for this period of film was very good.
I read the reviews before ordering this film as it was a Christmas present for my civil partner, I read that the sound quality was slightly poor, but we found there was no issues with the sound.
The speed of delivery was very good and the disc appeared to be in good condition. Would recommend this to any sci fi fan or any one just interested in a decent film.

4.0 out of 5 stars X-cellent, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this for my Civil Partner, as he as the entire series on DVD.
The collection he's got in black and white, this story is in colour, which makes the episode stand out more. The bonus extras was great. There was a early show called Four Feather Falls. And the extra documentary was interesting.
My only let down was the main feature was a little shorter then expected.

This review is from: Galaxy Quest [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
Picture and sound quality was perfect and the delivery was quick. The company we ordered it from makes sure the products are perfect before sending them out.
The film is a very funny and in the occasional spot a little emotional. Tim Allen doing his very best William Shatner impression, Alan Rickman is great as the thespian who is fed up as the typecast upright alien. And Sigourney Weaver shows that she can certainly can do comedy, (give her the right script). The story could of been a little stronger so the geek fans in the story had a bit more to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out if this world, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet 51 [DVD] (DVD)
A great family film. A great twist on the alien from another planet story. The sound and picture are excellent and was delivered promptly.
Dwayne Johnson does a great job to soften his hard man roles, by voicing the loveable confused so called alien. The town and alien people are almost Earth like. A great piece of escapism from the reality of life.


Doctor Who - Paradise Towers [DVD] [1987]
Doctor Who - Paradise Towers [DVD] [1987]
Dvd ~ Sylvester McCoy
Price: 10.94

4.0 out of 5 stars In Paradise, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good Sylvester McCoy story, if just slightly odd. Richard Briers got to play the pantomime villain with great relish.
This is one of McCoy's better stories. A well acted episode. Would recommend to any Dr Who fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit ruff, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A bit of a let down. It was basically a rehash of the first story, to me there was no warmth to the story. Bette Middler was over the top and Nick Nolte who replaced Alec Baldwin sounded bored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Over the Moon, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD arrived promptly. The quality of the film is excellent considering it's age. It's a fun way to pass a few hours. My self and my husband enjoyed a sci-fi that was not over the top and had a bit of a decent story to it. Would recommend to any one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fly away winner, 16 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD was in good condition. Arrived on time. No faults at all. Nice to see new characters, but is a shame some of the least likeable characters seemed to be the most over used. A few of the characters was not given the chance to develop, those characters then could of been the characters whose catchphrases could of been popular in the future.
