Bloody Sunday [DVD]
Bloody Sunday [DVD]
Dvd ~ James Nesbitt
Price: £8.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Even Handed and well acted account, 17 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Bloody Sunday [DVD] (DVD)
Credit due to the makers of this drama documentary. James Nesbitt gives a fine performance and the film depicts convincingly how events spiralled out of control and panic set in with deadly effect. The film is also remarkable in that it features people who were actually there - staging re-enactments. A brave, bold, controversial project it should be applauded whatever your political sympathies and views of Bloody Sunday. Recommended.

Often fondly remembered programmes lose their magic with the passage of time. Not Willo the Wisp. Funny, witty and a lot of the humour pitched at the adults as much as kids - Willo still entertains to this day. Much obviously of this works because of the vocal talents of Kenneth Williams. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthy of its reputation? Hmmm. A 'Must see'? Probably not., 17 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Pusher Trilogy [DVD] (DVD)
Beware the hype. Pusher is okay - though given the unevenness of the direction, the acting and storylines I'd give it no more than 3 stars. Of the Trilogy the final Pusher 3 stays in the mind and is in many cases the most difficult to watch - the violence somehow being both grotesque and banal at the same time. My problem with the films was because there were so many anti-heroes in them all - there was nobody to connect with or care about. There were passages in the two earlier films that bored me stiff. The Character of Milo - the Serb Drug Baron - is the most intriguing. A bumbling figure of fun almost - in the 1st film - develops into a callous monster by the 3rd Film.

This review is from: The Chaser [DVD] (DVD)
A very well made, watchable and gripping film which plays on the genre of a chase movie and toys with our expectations. You actually care about the outcome - and the good guys. A happy ending? Watch the film and find out!!

P.C. George Dixon writes:-

Good entertaining and colourful stuff which plays on a number of stereotypes about criminals and coppers. I'm not sure I'd leave our daughter in 'a nice big brown box with little holes in it' on the doorstep or anywhere for that matter - I reckon today's burglars are less trustworthy than in the good old days ;-)

Evenin' all :-)

This review is from: Incendies [DVD] (2010) (DVD)
A remarkable film in so many ways - one which demands your patience and your attention if not indeed a little suspension of disbelief - and the ending for some - a disturbingly powerful metaphor about the nature of violence and humanity - may shock and yet un-convince in equal measure. That said - this film remained in my mind long after first showing and it is one that I will return to again. Not for the faint hearted!

Access to History: The Experience of Warfare in Britain: Crimea, Boer and the First World War 1854-1929

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay - but the Edexcel is better imho, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I rate the Access to History series very highly - and because I do (I teach History to A Level) I was disappointed by this book. It is okay - solid is the word used in another review - and curiously I find the Edexcel textbook in this instance superior to this AtH offering. Others may disagree - and guess what that is the essence of studying History ;-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Evocative and bitter sweet, 14 Mar. 2013

Some have complained about the americanised treatment of Milne's stories in this adaptation - but there is still much to enjoy. The animation is in keeping with E.H. Shepard's illustrations - and the music albeit derivative (echoes of Gilbert & Sullivan in the Rain Rain Rain song and echoes of Charlie is my Darling with the Hefalump and Woozle songs) is catchy. Our little one loves it.

A really enjoyable Korean film about an unsolved spate of murders back in the 1980s. Slowly and powerfully the film draws you in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyably OTT Gore Fest - that sends itself up with relish..., 14 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well the title gives you more than a clue about what to expect. Blood, guts, more blood, attractive Japanese Females (Nurse Midori wouldn't work at an NHS Hospital I don't think - you'd probably have to pay BUPA prices for her services...and wow what service!) a vampire girl, gore, a frankenstein girl - oh - and more gore.
Splat -tastic !!!
