No Country For Old Men [DVD]
No Country For Old Men [DVD]
Dvd ~ Tommy Lee Jones
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £2.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality, no doubt!, 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Country For Old Men [DVD] (DVD)
The Coen Brothers are a pretty safe bet when it comes to producing quality films and this is no exception. Gritty, nasty and exciting, it never lets you feel like anyone is even slightly safe. Tommy Lee Jones has appeared in some genuine disasters and some real gems, this one being a true diamond in his long career. Javier Bardem is as superb in this as he is in Skyfall, with Josh Brolin continuing to add to his career successes which started out way back in the great "Goonies".
I can't fault this, the only reason I can think of not to buy it is its regular outings on TV...

This review is from: The Prestige [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
With this cast you would be very surprised if the film was anything less than good, and there is no such surprise here.
A clever film that mixes the art of illusion with the Sci-fi fantastical. Not a film that will fit any mood on any day but one that will easily keep your concentration and interest even after it has finished on the right one...

2.0 out of 5 stars Shame..., 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The original may have Arnie's hammy acting and some effects that would look more at home on an old episode of Doctor Who but it's still a far more entertaining and enjoyable experience than this remake will ever be.
It starts off quite strong and my hopes were high but falls flat before it's half way through. The Mars alien plot line has vanished, and the handling of what remains is poor. Even Bryan Cranston as the head honcho of the bad guys can't save this from disaster with his only disappointing screen performance (that I've seen) to date.
By the end you will be desperate for Arnie's "I'll be back!" as this could not have failed to benefit if he had indeed come back for another romp across the red planet.
Avoid if you love the old version, even if it keeps on tempting you as it did me...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all., 9 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Ironclad [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This passed me by at the cinema, I first came across it here on Amazon. The price was right and I tend to like this sort of thing so I took a punt, one I don't regret. Better than similar toned films like "The Eagle", or the reasonably recent "King Arthur" in my view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good!, 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great account of one of mankinds greatest ever rescues, enriched by a stellar cast who all shine brightly under Ron Howard's direction. Its on TV from time to time but if you like having a film collection, as I do, this will fit very nicely within it!


Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter [DVD]

Price: £2.39

3.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly enjoyable., 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film will never win any awards but it will fill a couple of hours with its bizarrely entertaining story easily. I will have to watch this again to make my mind up properly but if the price is right its certainly worth a watch.

I don't know which I like best? A matter of Loaf and Death one day... The wrong trousers the next...
A perfectly marvelous collection of one of Britain's best ever exports that will delight the youngest and oldest members of almost any family with ease!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great., 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the longest of the Wallace and Gromit films it's probably not the best. Which is best is always going to be personal preference with these films as they are all fantastic and individual gems in their own right. Many a great and funny moment will charm and entertain you throughout this film, the rabbits floating in the suction machine always makes me laugh!
What's not to like about this daring duo and the marvelous collection of characters that inhabit their quaint British world!

If you have never seen this and like fantasy action then do yourself a favor and pick this up second hand for 1p and £1.26 postage and packing. A total bargain!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good film for children and adults alike., 9 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Ice Age [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
As an adult I found the rest of the ice age films disappointing, that is not true of the first. Cheese is kept at bay and the ending is both satisfying and touching. There are never enough great family films that everyone can truly enjoy but this is certainly one of them. It can hold its own with Pixar's best any day.
