1.0 out of 5 stars Had been better had 'The Force' remained fast asleep., 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately, bought this unintentionally. Anyway, not a patch on the original. All American 'kick ass' rubbish with the usual tedious obsession with guns,guns and more guns. Predictably clever, but now mind numbingly familiar CGI, which, since being used to demean Tolkien's great work, effectively destroys the real essence of great film making and good acting. If I didn't feel obliged to watch it having wasted nearly fourteen pounds on the purchase price, I would certainly never have bothered with this awful movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling for the faint hearted! Worth viewing., 25 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember watching this film at a small cinema near Hastings with my father in 1962. I'm sure I enjoyed it,although my critical senses were still developing . My father endured it and we left the cinema, for my own part somewhat awestruck and my pater's, somewhat indifferent, I guess.
It was worth watching again after a period of almost 55 years, if only to try and recall the imagery and special effects, which impressed me then with my reactions today.
For a delightful and quite imaginative piece of early (though not that early) science fiction, it's still watchable, even though the script, plot and characters lack depth and it's all a bit naive and melodramatic. The special effects are fun and actually quite creative,although the red tint, which dominates the scenes set on the Martian landscape can become visually tedious and a bit of a strain. Otherwise, I would recommend, if only for a taste of early sixties, fantasy cinema.

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking design. Perfect timekeeper., 27 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product. Very simple but striking face; immaculate case and strap. The plastic film placed on the back and crystal was something unexpected for such a low cost product. Timekeeping faultless. My only negative comment is that the hour hand is black with a red stripe : this makes viewing difficult in a strong or low light. Otherwise, more than satisfied.

Have used these inks before and been very happy with quality and compatibility.
Much of my printing is high quality photographic work, and being able to rely on this excellent product has reduced cost and increased the pleasure.

1.0 out of 5 stars Watchable, but not enjoyable., 5 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Hole in my Heart (Amazon Video)
I'm afraid, as pre-warned, this film is not for the squeamish. I couldn't say I enjoyed it or would recommend it. I'm still wondering why I selected it for viewing!?. If it's titillation/ cheap thrills your after - don't watch this. If on the other hand you need to be reminded of the emptiness, cruelty and utterly de-humanising aspects surrounding sexual exploitation and the pursuit of the ultimate sexual thrill/experience, then this film certainly helps to define this image. The actors were certainly convincing. Could they possibly have relished playing such difficult and demanding parts? I would imagine that the film and performances were as much experimental as they were career enhancing!

This review is from: Don't Look Down (Amazon Video)
Quite enjoyable on certain levels. The characters are sensitively played. The plot and storyline tend to move between originality and being a bit contrived, although there's a sensitivity and naivety, which is enjoyable and makes the film watchable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music: inspiring and uplifting., 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed these performances by John Ogden - the piano concerto in particular. The recording is a little dry, but the detail and nuance more than acceptable. Tippett's music can be so uplifting: it pulsates with energy and a love and exuberance for life that is infectious. I find that it helps me to cope with this often, less than joyful world.
