Tommy Lee Jones always lights up any film he makes. Though this one is very bleak with a story line that, for me, could have been stronger but unusual anyway. Not a great part for Charlize Theron to be honest though she acts it very well. However well worth seeing and it does keep you in suspense throughout.

This review is from: Can't Buy Me Love [DVD] (DVD)
A very well done, if typical, teen film. Wanted to watch it all the way through to see what happens.

Worth seeing, a funny (for some as what makes people laugh is different) film and a bit of a love interest.

This review is from: Mr Morgan's Last Love [DVD] (DVD)
A strangely slow moving film about a highly improbable relationship between an old man and a young girl. There was a good deal of the background that needed to be fleshed out between the two characters and there didn't seem to be enough for the girl's character. Why would she build this platonic relationship with the man? You can guess from some clues in the story line but you are never quite sure. That said, it is well acted and I wanted to see it through to the end - and it didn't end up in the charity box!

This review is from: Birthday Girl [DVD] (DVD)
A very strange and unusual film. I enjoyed the film and the highly improbable outcome and well acted throughout. A bit of a male fantasy film in a way so not sure how much empathy there would be from the other sex. And mentioning sex there is some but not of the soft porn variety. If you're a man a good film to watch, if you are a woman I am not so sure (but not for me to presume what works for a woman and what doesn't!).

NK is a Russian bride with a difference as BC finds out to his cost and the first third of the film is about how their relationship appears to gel and the remainder is about the catch and its affects on BC.

This review is from: The Lucky Ones [DVD] (DVD)
I had passed this film over when looking through the Amazon listings but caught its trailer on another DVD and thought this seems watching. It is a well worked film very well acted by all with a good fleshing out of characters though Rachel and Michael's characters could have been explored more. I was drawn into their lives and the story line of their road trip was different enough for it not to be a road trip movie. Highly recommend it.

This review is from: Admission [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
A really enjoyable film. I had to watch it in one sitting, which for me is the sign of a good story line as I wanted to see how it would unfold (although being a formulaic romcom I probably knew anyway). Tina Fey is not only a good actress and comedian but attractive to watch. A nicely done story, you won't be disappointed if you are looking for a typical film of this genre.

Price: £6.00

This review is from: Fun Size [DVD] (DVD)
Should be 3 1/2 stars rather than 4 hence the 3 but a little more than just ok. A teen film with some appeal for the older viewer in a fairly fast-paced story. The 8 year-old was a little creepy though, could've been better cast or characterised. Worth a watch definitely if only for the 2 good-looking actresses.

This review is from: Married Life [DVD] (DVD)
Didn't live up to expectations for me. Has an expected sheen of 40-50s glamour which didn't pan out and far too much smoking. Fast-forwarded after about 45 minutes. Too much talking and far too flat. No highs, no lows, and not for me.

Dvd ~ Cedric The Entertainer
Price: £4.50

3.0 out of 5 stars So just better than Ok, 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is worth 3 1/2 stars not 4 hence the 3 rating. So just better than Ok. Watchable, with some funny bits, and some glamour. You never quite knew what Cedric's character really was which was quite a good hook through the film. I also wonder if Cedric's parents were Mr & Mrs The Entertainer! Any way definitely worth a watch, you should get some pleasure and entertainment out of it.
