Zulu (50th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]
Zulu (50th Anniversary Edition) [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Stanley Baker
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I first saw this film when I was 12 at ..., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first saw this film when I was 12 at my little local cinema and remember enjoying it. Don't think I've sat all the way through it again until I bought the Blu Ray edition. All the actors play their parts well especially Stanley Baker and the whole production is well handled.


Crime at Mayerling: The Life and Death of Mary Vetsera (Studies in Austrian Literature, Culture & Thought: Translation)
Crime at Mayerling: The Life and Death of Mary Vetsera (Studies in Austrian Literature, Culture & Thought: Translation)
by Georg Markus
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime At Mayerling, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even after all these years, the story of Crown Prince Rudolf and Mary Vetsera and the tragedy at Mayerling makes for an interesting read. Having read several other books on the subject which tend to concentrate more on the Crown Prince, this one gives an insight into the life of the tragic Mary. Thoroughly enjoyed it.


Lawrence of Arabia (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [1962] [Region Free]
Lawrence of Arabia (Blu-ray + UV Copy) [1962] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Peter O'Toole
Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Lawrence Of Arabia Blu ray, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great David Lean epic is even more watchable on Blu ray. Both Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif were both at the begining of their film careers but you never would have known as both actors give stirling performances. And then there is Maurice Jarres brilliant score. One of the best films ever produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to 'A Passage To India', 20 Mar 2014

Maurice Jarre provided an excellent score for this David Lean film and whilst probably not up to his Doctor Zhivago or Lawrence of Arabia standard it still provides an atmospheric theme to the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2001 - Blu Ray, 21 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pristine transfer on to Blu-Ray make this film still highly watchable after many viewings over the years first in the cinema and then on normal DVD. Always gets you thinking about Kubrick's intention for the film and the music adss to the splendour of the film.

At last I have been able to put my old vinyl LP of this show to rest. Been after a CD copy for a long time. The recording is far superior to the Broadway Cast and of course has the late great Frankie Howerd leading the merry revels.

I am very interested in the myth surrounding the Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria and whilst this film taught me nothing new it is very well acted and presented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steve McQueen early role, 23 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An early outing for Steve McQueen and in a comedy. Makes a change from his later tougher guy roles and whilst it may be a bit dated its quite a funny film.

Great piece of film nostalgia with interesting bonus features. The curved screen effect adds much to the enjoyment of the film. Thanks Flicker Alley for bringing this to Blu Ray.
