5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer quality, 30 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife saw this delightful watch in a local jewellers window display and fell in love with it. The rose gold plated finish adds an uncommon elegance and the clarity of the dial is a delight. The elegant leather strap and the reputable Rotary brand name meant that she had to have it. A search across the web soon found that Amazon were offering this watch at the most competitive price and the decision was made. This watch combines quality and good value - an uncommon but welcome combination. Many thanks Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Wimbledon, 29 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remeber watching this match on the BBC back in 1980. At the time I considered it one of the besr tennis matches I had ever seen. There is no doubt that the legendary Wimbledon mystique played a part, plus the fact that Borg was aiming for a fifth Title, and the fiery youngster McEnroe was aiming for his first. The match also represented a classic clash of syles with Borgs solid base line play verus the exciting serve-volley technique of McEnroe.
The match did not disappoint - it was a classic 5 setter with the fortunes going this way and that right up to the last point of the match.
The only disappointing aspect of the match for me is that I should have been in the crowd at Wimbledon to see the match live. I had been promised tickets for the Centre Court on Mens Final day but the tickets arrived too late. But the TV coverage is superbm and this dvd also, is superb. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A British cinematic gem., 2 Dec. 2009

This review is from: Face [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
Robert Carlyle heads a stellar british cast which includes Ray Winstone, Phil Davis, Sue Johnston and others in a taut crime thriller set in London. Ray (played by Robert Carlyle)is the 'face' of the title, an established villan respected by the criminal fraternity.
Together with four others he commits a robbery which results in a take a lot smaller than was expected And then somebody starts stealing the cash from the robbers and killing people too.
There follows a fraught period when Ray and his friends try to discover who is responsible for the thefts and the murders at the same time as trying to avoid capture by the police. A touching romantic element adds the finishing touch to this thriller which, I believe, is one of the best british crime thrillers ever made.
Highly reccomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb adult entetainment, 2 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Guy Richie set the bar high when this film was released. His following film Snatch, although excellent in its own right, for me it never quite reaches the standard set by Lock Stock.
The story is about four young men who find themselves endebted to a London gang boss to the tune of a quarter of a million pounds, and who go through various adventures as a consequence. The 'Two Smoking Barrels' refers to a sub plot in which the gang bos tries to get his hands on two valuable antique shotguns. These, plus a brief encounter with a psychotic drug dealer, come together to make a film which is superbly entertaining and very very funny. Highly reccomended.
