5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare: Twelfth Night Globe on Screen dvd 2013, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this productionwhen it was relayed to the Uni Theatre and bought the dvd as soon as it was available. BUY IT
It is a wonderful and colourful production. The actors are superb. I am sure I will view the dvd many times.
I've watched it twice already. Every actor plays his part well but of course I have my favourites. I have to say Mark Rylance and Paul Chahidi are absolutely hilarious. I recommend it to every age group

5.0 out of 5 stars The Woody Allen Collection DVD 1971, 29 Aug 2013

I saw Midnight in Paris in 2012 and was impressed so wanted more of his work. Woody Allen is brilliant because he writes the story and directs and acts. I am so glad I have discovered his work even though it is late in life. I can't understand why I didn't look out for his work before. He writes on the human condition, questions everything including religious belief and so on. The actors chosen are so realistic you can laugh or sympathise with them. Absolutely brilliant buy. I've also purchased 4 single dvd's of his. Music is also very important in his films. Some have over 40 melodies whilst others maybe only 2. It depends on the mood and subject of his storyline. I recommend his work to everybody


Jerusalem (NHB Modern Plays)
Jerusalem (NHB Modern Plays)
by Jez Butterworth
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Jerusalem by Jez Butterworth, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this play recently after catching about 10seconds of Mark Rylance playing the lead
character as shown on a tv review programme. I would have liked to purchase the dvd of the play
but to date have not found it available. I read the play and found it quite raw and natural as one would
expect from the setting and characters depicted. I pictured the scenes quite easily from the writing.
The story revolves around one man and his determination to live and die as he wishes.
Johnny 'Rooster' Byron is described as a local waster and modern-day Pied Piper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Despicable Me dvd 2010, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Despicable Me [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
I bought the DVD for my granddaughter but watched it myself and have now mailed it to her
This is the first animated film I have purchased and enjoyed it. The film is stunning to watch with
vibrant colours and as an adult I marvel at the cleverness of the whole system of producing something like this
especially after watching the special features. I liked the references to various films and loved the voices of the
characters and now look forward to Despicable Me 2 which I understand is even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Austrian crystal made with Swarovski elements Pendant necklace, 23 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this as a gift for a lady family member in their 40's. I confirm the pendant is as advertised. It is very pretty and well made. It came in a simple small box with inside necklace holder. This was then packed with another gift box in a larger cardboard box so items arrived in good condition and before the due date.

I read up on this CD and liked the choice of Choirs and hymns. This is a great purchase and I recommend it to anyone
looking for a selection of hymns. I thought I had only 4 favourites but there are so many well known pieces the total must now be 40.

I give 4 stars as the colour stone received is more PINK and not as advertised. However it is very pretty and well made with a nice quality chain. Overall I am pleased. It comes in a strong pale blue/grey box with a cream satin holder inside. This is a
gift for a young lady family member

Shakespeare: Henry IV Part 2 [Globe on Screen] [DVD][2010] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Roger Allam
Price: 19.38

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gobe Theatre 2010 - Henry IV pt 2, 11 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Henry IV Part 2. Buy this DVD with Part 1. Wonderful entertainment.
I am so pleased this production was filmed and issued as a DVD. Great value at
28.00 for the 2 parts. Roger Allam as Falstaff the ageing rogue filled the stage
with energetic hysterical action, self interest and acid comments . William Gaunt played
the exact opposite as Falstaff's hoodwinked comical quiet old friend and Jaymie Parker did well
as young Prince Hal but the play belongs to Sir John.
