Moone Boy - Series 2 [DVD]
Moone Boy - Series 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Chris O'Dowd
Price: £7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish gentle madness, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moone Boy - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Missed the first series and saw this series advertised on the T V. I sent for both and watched them in order. I am so glad I did. They are so so funny in a tipical Irish way, gentle and droll. Chris Dowd will go far in any area of entertainment he chooses. I have seen him do stand up and in films and he never disappoints. His script writing is first class too. I loved the extras at the end of each DVD. the extras on some DVDs are just awful but these gave you a real insight into the production, writing and West coast Irish "towns."

A true story. Russell Crowe turns into a great actor in this. More so than even Gladiator. Watched it a lot and am still moved to tear every time.A must watch film. In fact I lent this out and it never came back. This is a replacement copy for me. No more lending.

this is not only a History book but has humour too. If you closely examine each picture there are stories that go from page to page. My grandson who is 11 loves it and a friends child who is 6 carries it about where ever he goes because he loves it so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, 20 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The acting was not only brilliant but it was filmed outside in France. The sun was shinning, the actors were getting sun kissed and the whole thing was up lifting. I understood the Bard perfectly through this film. A must for anybody doing exams about the theatre, the Bard or history.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a man!, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first heard of Tom Crean while staying on the Dingle pennisular. I came across a pub painted bright blue called "The South Pole". It seemed strange to call a pub that, so I made it my business to find out about him. He lived a life that was truly remarkable and unique. The book could not have a better title. What this man did is staggering. He found Scott dead with his companions and laid them out. Mrs Scott found out what he had done and sent him money with which he bought this blue pub that he retired too.
He and two others trekked across uncharted ice waste for weeks to get help. When they found life at a whaling station they couldn't get the British to help because there is a war on "Don't you know!" I think it was a Chilean sea captain went to their rescue, a country that was fighting the British anyway.
If this man had been English every school boy would know his name as they do Captain Scott's.
If this story was written as a fiction it wouldn't be believable if would seem too far fetched.
If you are Irish. If you like true amazing tales. If you want knife edge seat read then Unsung hero is just this and more. Tom Crean is an unsung hero in every respect.

Liked it on the screen but was even nicer when was up up. When I looked at it in the tube package it looked a bit OTT. my fears were short lived when it was in place. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rab C never fails, 15 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rab C Nesbit is my all time favourite series.Gregor Fisher is a great actor. It would be easy to think he is funny in his own right (as well he maybe)he delivers someone elses word but what he bring to the part is truly unique. He is amazing. Because I am such a fan I now can understand the Scottish accent which is no mean feat. Gregor Fisher your truly amazing actor.

It was bought for my grandson and we watched together. He thought it really funny. I thought it was funny on an adult level too. It was cleverly done

This review is from: Super 8 [DVD] (DVD)
I don't know if I expected too much but I was really not impressed with this film.
I have since bought Cowboys v Aliens expecting it to be cheesey given the title but it was an unexpected blast. Go for that instead

3.0 out of 5 stars A game that does not tax your brain cells, 19 Dec. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Chuzzle (PC CD) (Video Game)
This is a mind numbing game but stangely addictive. Not enough info on how to play the game but is easily worked out. This game is for the really young or like me, really old. Not very taxing but fun.
