5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 22 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb audio and video transfer of an outstanding performance. Unfortunately the translated Englishsubtitles are absolutely appaling and occasionally so bad as to be comic so avoid like the plague as they make no sense and can ruin your viewing experience. Recommended despite this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise!, 21 May 2015

This review is from: Blackwood [DVD] (DVD)
A well acted and directed chiller that will keep you guessing until the end. Ed Stoppard gives a brave and dangerous performance in the lead. Much better than you might expect. The DVD audio and video transfer is first rate.

The Man in the Picture: A Ghost Story
The Man in the Picture: A Ghost Story

3.0 out of 5 stars The Woman in White - this time!, 17 May 2015
A vengeful woman yet again - but less convincingly than in her classic novel The "Woman in Black" - wrecks havoc on those unfortunate enough to come in contact with her in Susan Hill's short and somewhat pedestrian novella. Heavily influenced by M.R.James and set in a Cambridge college , a remote country mansion, and carnival time in Venice, this Chinese box of interwoven stories just about holds the readers interest and is fairly atmospheric too. However, despite the inclusion of a demonic painting that apparently captures the souls, or at least the image of the fate of several victims, and the apparition of some man - who is never identified - at the window of a deserted college bedroom - the tale doesn't really deliver the thrills, chills and originality required to take the story out of the run of the mill category of generic ghostly tales. The denouement is just a little flat too and one can't help worrying that Ms. Hill is stuck on a commercial treadmill that requires regular novels and novellas in order to pay the bills. Never mind the quality just see the rising bank account. Still it's all perfectly adequate but I suspect would never have been published if it had not been written by someone with Ms Hill's reputation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid product., 14 May 2015

As good as we hoped for - but it is very large! The fabric and design are of high quality and the product is ideal for amateur dramatics or similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid Blu Ray transfer!, 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This restoration of a great Hitchcock movie has been praised by the leading websites so this disc should not disappoint although it's not a sharp as one might have hoped ! Still this Blu Ray is recommended - and the film of course is truly fascinating in its depiction of thwarted love, guilt and "notorious" behaviour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive on every front!, 7 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Ashes (Blu-ray)
A beautiful Blu Ray transfer of a "difficult" and rather underestimated film that speculates about the private life of three talented artists. No, it's not a story for everyone and was panned by many critics on its original release but for those interested in Dali, Lorca etc it is certainly worth a look. Ravishing images and outstanding performances make for a decidedly special and moving production.
