Watched this when it was broadcast on TV, and seeing it again brought back happy memories. A great series, very faithful to the book.

A gripping film, powerful and dramatic. A must see film. Alternative ending didn't work for me, but the deleted scenes, in my view, should have been included.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and worth watching, 16 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Truth [DVD] (DVD)
Slow at times, and the dialogue a little plodding, but enough suspense to keep you interested. However, one of those films where, having seen it once, you probably won't need to see it again for some time. Possibly more a rental than a purchase, to be honest, but well worth seeing.

Loved this film. A few contrived moments, but forgivable. Fine performances all round. Watch this and you will not be disappointed; you might even be moved.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather plodding and forced, 3 Jun. 2014

I had high hopes for this movie, given the reviews on this site. Unfortunately, I found the dialogue to be forced and uninspired, the story to be unbelievable, dull and plodding, and most of the acting to be dreadful. The main parts were, however, played well, and the film did improve in the last quarter. Not the worst I have seen, but typical of the American contribution to the field...

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sportcount Chrono 100
Great little product. Does everything I need it to. Four star rating as, occasionally, you think you have pressed the button but, when you finish the set, realise that you didn't, as some lengths are double the time of others. Because of this, I find that at the moment I am still lap counting whilst I get used to knowing how to use the device. Having individual lap times is really useful, and combined with the lap counter provides measurable goals.

5.0 out of 5 stars No complaints!, 9 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great product, especially if you can get it cheaper than the list price. Takes up hardly any space whilst storing 60 capsules. You could use it to store 12 different varieties, as you can remove from either the top or the bottom, but I use it to store 10 capsules of 6 varieties, which is more than enough for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars In two minds at the moment..., 4 Feb. 2004
Having read the excellent reviews for this breadmaker, I finally succumbed and bought one just a few weeks ago. I was amazed by the quality of the first loaf, which was perfect, and disappeared rapidly.
Subsequent loaves have, however, been disappointing. I have tried to replicate the first loaf (same settings, same ingredients), to no avail. I think the machine has a fault, in that the mixing paddle occassionally turns during the baking phase, particularly at the end of the cycle, resulting in a loaf with a large cavity in the base, surrounded by a layer of impacted, uncooked dough. The remainder of the loaf is edible, but this is a huge waste. Have any other customers experienced this type of problem?
I have recently returned the machine, and am awaiting a replacement model. I will report back in due time...
