1.0 out of 5 stars One I wish I never bought, 5 Sep 2014

This review is from: 28 Days [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
This film was not my usual choice but I ordered it because of Viggo Mortensen and Domenic West, what a waste! The film is so awful, I switched it off half way through and now am practically giving it away back on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am sure some who class themselves as 'ladies' will find it useful too, 6 Aug 2014

I liked this book. It's not intrusive, well put and gives you enough pointers not be rude to people when they annoy you but not a pushover either

I Am Love [DVD] (2009)
I Am Love [DVD] (2009)
Dvd ~ Tilda Swinton
Offered by MediaMine
Price: £4.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Please ignore negative reviews...., 6 Aug 2014
This review is from: I Am Love [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
For it is either left by those who are so used to pre-digested trash where every word, gesture and action are spelled for them, so no effort is required to engage any thought or emotion, or they picked a wrong film. I mean to say it's dull and boring and 2 hours long - that, to me does not qualify as a serious review. It's not an easy or entertaining film, yes, you need to be prepared as a viewer to give it your time and attention...but it's wonderful once you did. The cast, scenery, love making scenes, the story are faultless and well executed. You know what, I'd give it top marks just for looking at beautiful people, gorgeous surroundings, food and listening to Italian language for 2 hours.


Broken Embraces [DVD]
Broken Embraces [DVD]
Dvd ~ Penélope Cruz
Price: £5.36

5.0 out of 5 stars Another treat from Pedro Almodóvar, 6 Aug 2014
This review is from: Broken Embraces [DVD] (DVD)
To be honest I'd give it 5 stars just for Miguel Poveda's "A ciegas" but I really enjoyed the film too


Everybody Has a Plan (Region 2) Todos Tenemos Un Plan
Everybody Has a Plan (Region 2) Todos Tenemos Un Plan
Dvd ~ Viggo Mortensen
Offered by Acid Vibes
Price: £13.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected find, highly recommended, 6 Aug 2014
Fantastic film. Viggo Mortensen actually surprised me how well he delivers his lines in Spanish although I did know he speaks the language, and with his portrayal of double identities. Just goes to show, take a good actor out of Hollywood and you end up with something really excellent. Daniel Fanego is equally good. I wish I could find more films with him in. Everything is spot on - cast, attention to detail, scenery. Spanish subtitles were also helpful as I am learning the language. Really loved it.


Eastern Promises [DVD]
Eastern Promises [DVD]
Dvd ~ Viggo Mortensen
Offered by Lifes Essentials
Price: £4.37

2.0 out of 5 stars Two stars for very believable tattoos and delicious looking borscht, 6 Aug 2014
This review is from: Eastern Promises [DVD] (DVD)
With all that splendid cast, and ingredients for a good crime thriller and David Cronenberg...it turned out to be a very silly movie. Russian accents are.....entertaining. Even Viggo couldn't save it....


Son Of The Bride [DVD]
Son Of The Bride [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ricardo Darín
Price: £6.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet film, 6 Aug 2014
This review is from: Son Of The Bride [DVD] (DVD)
Really enjoyed it, Ricardo Darin can do no wrong for me but other cast were equally splendid


Through a Glass Darkly: Thirteen Tales of Wine and Crime
Through a Glass Darkly: Thirteen Tales of Wine and Crime
by Barry Woelfel
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book to go with one's wine on a quiet evening, 6 Aug 2014
Discovered this book by chance whilst staying in some B&B on a dusty shelf, couldn't put it down once started reading. It's one of those really unusual books that you wouldn't go looking for and I don't know anything about the author but strangely enjoyable and being a wine lover, obviously liked the link with the crime bit. If you are not a wine lover, you will be after reading this book LOL


The Cat Who Came for Christmas
The Cat Who Came for Christmas
by Cleveland Amory

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat and book for all seasons, 6 Aug 2014
Absolutely wonderful. I loved that cat and Cleveland Amory's relationship with him, so well matched. Really well written too.
