The Limey [DVD]
The Limey [DVD]
Dvd ~ Terence Stamp
Offered by nagiry
Price: £3.44

5.0 out of 5 stars "You tell 'im - I'm a comin' !!", 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Limey [DVD] (DVD)
In the main I like Steven Soderbergh's movies a great deal. The Limey doesn't disappoint - I love the sheer absurdity of it all - a two bit Cockney gangster no-body can understand decides to take on the L.A. Mob to avenge his murdered daughter. Crazy, surreal and a real favourite of mine. Terence Stamp's intensity carries all before it and Peter Fonda makes a nice villain. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Take a little good advice ..., 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the Goodies as a kid - but here's the catch - that was almost 40 years ago. Some of the gags still work - but other jokes and satirical bits will be totally lost on newcomers to the show. For example would you ruin the joke and explain to youngsters watching the Goodies and The Beanstalk that the old geezer scoring a try with a golden egg was Rugby League Commentator Eddie Waring?

"Say wot dad - oh and what's Rugby League ?"

Still three blokes riding together on one big bike is inherently funny and very eco friendly to boot :-)

A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam
A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam
by Neil Sheehan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the book's size and scale daunt you, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very well written book about the folly of Vietnam. Memorable characters - tragic episodes - names and events that will haunt you - for me a guy called William Deal at the Battle of Ap Bac in 1963. Gripping writing - particularly of John Vann's earlier experiences in Korea - really vivid depiction of a battle there - its as if you are there in a fox-hole with John Paul Vann himself.

The real tragedy is that 50 years on the US Political Leadership and Top Brass exhibit the same faults as their predecessors and are unable to learn from bitter experience.

This review is from: White Material [DVD] (DVD)
An un-named country in Africa, a plantation owner refuses to leave her business and livelihood despite growing tension and violence in a period of civil war. Nail biting - and highly recommended.


Mr Benn: The Complete Series [DVD]
Mr Benn: The Complete Series [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mr Benn
Offered by Sent2u
Price: £10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Did Mr Benn actually do any work?, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I mean every episode off he saunters to the fancy dress shop and hey presto as if by magic he usually ends up being dressed like a member of the Village People. OK that did take some guts back in 1971 - but come on we have a right to know ;-) !!

Endearingly old fashioned story telling and animation - and all the more effective and captivating for it. Our little one loves it when he dresses up as a Knight.

Citizen King [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Taylor Branch
Offered by EliteDigital UK
Price: £90.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Martin Luther King's Final Years 1964 to 1968, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very well made documentary about the failure of MLK's political campaigns after the apparent successes of the passage of the Civil and Voting Rights acts. It deals with divisions amongst the Civil Rights Movement, the rise of extremism both black and white, the white backlash and King's denunciation of the Vietnam War and campaigns for the poor that alienated the Federal Government and white liberals who thought that all problems had been solved at the stroke of the President's pen. A very useful companion to the Eyes on the Prize series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Overview of The Civil Rights Era circa 1954 to 1965, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well produced history of the Civil Rights Era featuring archive material and interviews with the key surviving players from the 1980s.
A good summary of the period and of value to students and of interest to those interested in modern US History.

Clangers: The Complete First Series [DVD]
Clangers: The Complete First Series [DVD]
Dvd ~ Oliver Postgate

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Nationalism - Use flags as Table Cloths!, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great stuff - the sound and picture quality is variable but the stories are entertaining and some of the scenes positively psychedelic - at one point a startled American Astronaut trying to flee the Clangers ends up embraced by The Soup Dragon and having a waltz with it before falling into the soup well. Of its time certainly but infants can still relate to it.
