5.0 out of 5 stars Devilishly Superb, 2 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Evil [DVD] (DVD)
A master craftsman at work here, the tension comes of the screen, although this is set in Sweden, the old school brutality runs across all high educated institutions. The finger on the pulse all the time, with a great insight into a young mans life and trials.
This is a must see for originality and realism, and how you can overcome, and be a better and bigger person.
This really should be on the school curriculum

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy at its best, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is how comedy should be, timeless and classic, funny yet gritty, it does sound silly but you may never see comedy like this again.
Both of these greats are no longer with us, but the legacy will live on, this was made long before the idiotic politically correct brigade stepped in, and people were people warts an all, funny to the bone, great one liners, a must for fans of both Ronnie Barker, ( Open all hours. The two Ronnie's) Richard Beckinsale ( Rising Damp) for uncompromising humour

5.0 out of 5 stars The Brilliant Tim Roth, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Liar [DVD] (DVD)
I found this little gem by looking through Amazon's files on Tim Roth it has to be said I had never heard of this film, and being a huge fan of his work had to get it. He always delivers and in this not very well known film he does not disappoint.
There are only six characters but if you are a film buff you will recognise all of them, the title helps to put this film in perspective but to say anymore will give to much away, you have to watch how it unfolds, is that the truth or is it a lie? a must see to all Tim Roth fans, a must see to any fan of did he or didn't he

Criminal Minds - Season 2 [DVD]
Criminal Minds - Season 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mandy Patinkin
Price: £9.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Watching, 28 Aug. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Season one is defining the characters, season two you know them and there is more confidence. The story lines are brilliant, none are unbelievable, its fascinating watching Gideon ( Mandy Patinkin ) and the group come up with a profile of the killer or abductors, it has to be said even they can be fooled by the killer or killers, but with more observation they get there man or woman.
A refreshing cerebral way of getting there man as opposed to CSI that relies on the evidence only, this is much more interesting and full of twists and turns, sometimes with a surprise ending. Brilliant team of actors that works well, and like any good book you can not wait to turn the page.
If you like deduction with a touch of class this is a must

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Funny, 19 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Severance [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
A lovely surprise to find although there is lots of blood this is a funny film, all the actors compliment each other, and the story line is good.
It has elements of the League of Gentlemen about it, and one of the characters not giving the story line away redeems himself
Funny witty with great special FX
Must be seen to appreciate it

5.0 out of 5 stars Patrick Swayze at his best, 19 July 2009
I remember watching this the first time on TV and could not wait for the next episode, now I don't have to wait.
Not only a history of the civil war, but the lives and loves of the south plantation owners, and the north iron industry bringing two familys together, who had there friendship tested as the war took hold
A great epic journey of two men overcoming great obstacles and loss, not to be missed
If you have not seen it get it you will not regret it, if you did see it get it anyway and enjoy the spectacle and history again

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous compendium, 19 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have waited for years to get hold of some of these, Oliver Reed in Curse of the Werewolf and Paranoiac, a truly under estimated actor, he is stunningly handsome and believable, Paranoiac in black and white gives it an edge to a great thriller with a twist
Recommend the box set to all Hammer House fans

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT DISAPPOINTED, 10 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant season 1 to 3 worth waiting for the fourth season, great chemistry between the brothers, power shifts and kept secrets, all with some very funny moments, one of the best series ever, up to the minute stories with reference to real life horror interlaced with our demon fighters struggle to save lost souls
Highly recommended, a must for fast pace, thrills of our two hero's

5.0 out of 5 stars THRILLER WITH A TWIST, 10 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jennifer 8 [DVD] (DVD)
All star cast, Andy Garcia as a detective, and Lance Henriksen as his older mentor, the two have a bond of friendship and work well together.
It opens on a dark and rainy afternoon as Garcia is transferred to work a case with Henriksen, trawling through rubbish in a land fill, someone finds a human hand, as they were going to call it a day, more trawling brings up two dead dogs? and a knife, are these items connected, this film twists and turns, with Uma Thurman who plays a blind music teacher, very watchable with a surprise ending.
For who done it fans a must have

5.0 out of 5 stars A comic Genius, 9 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No one else could have played Rigsby better than Leonard Rossiter, this is as funny today as it was when it was made, its classics like this that show up today's comedy as banal.
British humour at its best, the one thing I would advise is to watch the film version at the end as it would spoil the series, and the actors we all come to love
Great all round comedy for all the family guaranteed to put a smile on your face
Recommended fun feast
