1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logan's Run [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
The opening sequence was quite interesting, when all the 30-year olds rise up to be vaporised, or electrocuted (or whatever it is). The film goes downhill from there.

The scene with Peter Ustinov and the cats was incomprehensible, and added nothing to the plot development.

Don't waste your time watching this!

2.0 out of 5 stars Overrated, 7 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Soylent Green [DVD] [1973] (DVD)
This film is pretentious and boring.

The acting is second-rate, and the story is preposterous.

The only good section was the part when the old man goes to be euthanased; that was quite moving.

Very good performance of these masterpieces.

All of the Coronation Anthems are wonderful. My favorite is 'My heart is Inditing'.

This review is from: Manhattan [DVD] [1979] (DVD)
A masterpiece, and quite unlike any other film i have ever seen. Excellent acting, direction and cinematography; what more xould you want.

The story is tyically Woody Allen: cynical, discursive, but always engaging. It is also very sad.

Twelve Plays (World's Classics)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, yet also melancholy, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These short palys give an excellent introduction to Chekhov for beginners.

My favorite is 'The Proposal', which is a delight; I read it with my son and (14-year old) grand-daugter, and we all loved it.

Very funny, but with that typically Russian strain of melancholy.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting historical action story, 7 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I saw this film as a child when it was first released, and always wanted to see it again. When I finally bought the DVD I was not disappointed.

The picture quality isn't wonderful, but the acting and direction are both good.

I enjoyed the way the film placed the action in the context of the history of the American Civil War.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as expected, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheap, and excellent value for money.

Even has gold-edged pages. A colour choice would have been rvrn better, rather than receiving the seller's random choice.
