5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 14 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely collection of period shorts. A mix of cartoons, short films and documentaries. Not only does it give an interesting insight to the home front at the time, but is an interesting reminder of just how prevalent propaganda and misinformation were. Several shorts are so xenophobic (once a German always a German) that they would shock even a Daily Mail reader.

A lovely collection, some of the animation is wonderful. Its only a shame that the included book doesn't list the shorts in order, but seems to list them randomly so you never quite know which one you are watching, but there is a scene selection that lists them so more a confusing layout point than a criticism.

Obviously as well, it is silent but with a music score. I mention this only because in conversation with a friend I pointed it out and he said "Oh, yeah, I never thought". Its not stupidity of course, it just might not register instantly as we are so used to sound recordings.

As this is the centenary year I really recommend getting this. Its a well spent couple of hours and a well spent tenner.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why do people still believe this?, 17 Mar. 2009
I bought this DVD a while back as I'm a Leicester lad and Belgrave Hall is an important historical place. I am always interested in watching paranormal documentaries like this as a sceptic- it helps to know your enemy.

The DVD is full of pantomime acting, assumptions with no validity and a bit of a pi**ing contest between the "mediums". When Derek Acorah has been disproven so many times (can I get a Kreed Kafer?) it is shocking that so many still choose to believe.

This DVD is total tommy rot, a waste of money and an insult to the intelligence of people with intelligence.

Only purchase for a laugh and more proof ghosts do not exist

5.0 out of 5 stars Stop moaning about it being a port, 9 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just want to address those complaining that it is simply a port over, a carbon copy of the PS version.

Yes it is. Capcom never said it was going to be a full remake like RE1. This release is simply to allow GC users who may not have ever owned a Playstation or Dreamcast to finally own this game. I think them porting it over and releasing it for GC is a wonderful thing. Yes it 32- bit graphics, yes its exactly the same game, no there are no new bits or alternate layout with massively improved graphics. But with a game this good, do you really need it?

If you don't own this game on any other console, then get it, it is one of the best Res games out there and far superior to RE4. Ignore the people complaining about it only being a port over, they obviously are annoyed at themselves for not reading the information about this product clearly.

this game is brilliant and well worth a tenner if you don't have it on other consoles.

Five Stars!
