5.0 out of 5 stars Still Relevant nearly 20 years on, 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good watchable film, provoking a lot of thought. When a group of people scanning the skies are contacted with a message from outer space. At first they find it hard to decode, but as things progress they make a first contact with another time or space. One ends up feeling quite angry with the way government has always, and still does behave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great on Plaster Casts, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are ideal for my husband to wear in the house. He has just had an operation on both feet and both are in plaster. He feels much more comfortable wearing these socks. We did of course have to order the largest size to fit over the cast, but they keep his toes and ankles warm, they are fairly heavy duty and they also have sort of rubber spotted bottoms which are ideal for not slipping around on floors. Very glad I bought them for him.

I was not happy with this cardigan. It was grubby when it arrived, and was baggy and out of shape. I did not think the buttons went well with the design either.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Story, 7 Feb 2014

This was most shocking to read when one realizes it is a true story. How a mother can abuse a child and behave like this is appalling. This was extremely well written and easy to read. A bit of an eye opener.

I was not impressed with this video. This just gives very small snippets of their routine bolero. Would not watch it again.

This review is from: French Kiss [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
I found this film quite amusing. A rather neurotic young women goes chasing after her ex-boyfriend to France and gets caught up in her worst nightmares with no money and passport. All intertwined with a small time crook, who against all odds, find themselves falling in love. The film made even better by the scenery in France.

This is a great film. A women is fed up with the English weather and her husband who takes her for granted. She goes on holiday to Greece and decides to stay. I have watched this film several times over the years and have often commented when on holiday, this is just like Shirley Valentine. A memorable film.

This review is from: Pay it Forward (Paperback)
This was an excellent book, well written and easy to read. A young person trying to help others, asking for nothing in return except that they also do a good turn for someone else, and they ask the same of the next person. The down side was, I was not terribly impressed with the ending.

This review is from: Seven Pounds [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
An intense, rather sad film, but extremely watchable. A man who caused an accident which involved killing 7 people, he then goes on determined to help 7 other people who need medical help. Will Smith plays this role excellently, and unwittingly falls in love with one of the people he is trying to help

4.0 out of 5 stars A Curl Up on the Settee, with a Glass of Wine Movie, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice easy, romantic film to watch. I rather enjoyed. It is about a researcher who goes on holiday to Italy with her chef boyfriend, who then spends most of his time cooking. She then comes across a love letter written some 50 years ago, on contacting this women who is now in her 60's, the women arrives in Italy to meet her, with her grandson. The grandson is not impressed, but all three of them set of to see if they can track down the man who the letter was written to 50 years ago. Quite amusing in places.
