This review is from: Finding Forrester [DVD] (DVD)
Finding Forrester is a really good story, Sean Connery is excellent as the somewhat recluse Forrester who befriends the talented Jemal Wallace played by Rob Brown and as the story unfolds it seems that the two characters need each other's help. Well worth watching and like "Good Will Hunting" it leaves you feeling that the you have seen a great film.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most of the films are filled with British propaganda of the time, there are some good film shots of the devastation caused by the bombing and the Nazi rockets, dog fights and visual warfare. This set provides a good taste of what the 2nd world war was like although unless you lived through it you could not begin to comprehend the fear, the noise or the loss of so many civilians during those 6 years.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victorian Britain (DVD)
Provides an adequate account of the horrific conditions the poorer people lived in at the time, when poor really meant poor (no welfare state then) compared to the more wealthy affluent society. Some of the speakers were not recorded very well and it comes over a bit muffled, never the less this DVD is well worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Thaw RIP, 26 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this biography as a huge fan of the late John Thaw, as I was interested in reading about his life a which was pretty dramatic in its own right. I was not disappointed the book has some excellent pictures from such wonderful series as The Sweeney, Morse, Kavanagh QC and the splendid Goodnight Mr Tom. A great read about a much loved British Actor

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Chips, 26 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Goodbye, Mr Chips [DVD] (DVD)
I love the original film starring Robert Donat, and saw this remake on TV some time ago and as a fan of Martin Clunes decided to buy it. The story is pretty much the same, set at Brookfield school for boys about a young teacher who comes to the school in 1870 and stays for over 50 years. There are a few changes to the original, slightly more modern, but Martin does an excellent and convincing job in the starring role. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wesley Snipes Collection, 26 Jun. 2014

Three good but not great films starring Wesley Snipes who plays the tough go to guy, these films are perhaps not as well known as Passenger 57 or Demolition Man, but never the less are pretty good action/thriller films.
