Laughing Matters - Rowan Atkinson [Dutch Import]
Laughing Matters - Rowan Atkinson [Dutch Import]
Dvd ~ Rowan Atkinson
Offered by brrsales
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A Visual Comedy, 11 July 2012
Laughing Matters is a very fascinating,yet funny Lecture/Documentry on Visual Comedy. Mr.Rowan Atkinson co-wrote and stars in a dual role as grey haired professor type `Rowan Atkinson M.sc (Oxon) and his assistant 'Kevin Bartholomew'. They convey the History, Principles & the Mechanics of Visual Humour . It tackles every thing from Parody, Surrealism, Slapstick & Mime. It also features clips from greats like Charlie Chaplin, Jacques Tati (who Inspired Rowan), Peter Sellers & Monty Python. Plus brilliant sketches including the Bean-Like Kevin on an ironing board, portraying `Superman' and also acting like a lampshade. Also Great to see Robin Driscol, who co-wrote this, the Original Mr. Bean & animated series and both Bean Movies. The sound track on the dvd is in English, but unfortunately there are Dutch subtitles which you can't switch off. Overall,highly recommended for fans of classic comedy and an essential buy for Film & comedy students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rowan Live, 7 July 2012
While watching 'The Story Of Bean' documentary, I came across footage of Mr Rowan Atkinson's live Revues of the 70's & 80's. I was intrigued and purchased 'Rowan Atkinson Live'. It is a collection of sketches from his one man show (with Angus Deayton) when he performed in Boston. I was totally blown away with Rowan's incredible visual comedy and his astounding timing.There are a mixture of Sketches, Visual, Verbal and Mime. I am not too keen on a couple of sketches, but 'Pink Tights & Plenty of Props','The Amazing Jesus','The Invisible Man' and 'Elementary Dating' I howl at every time.You can see elements of Bean & Black Adder in the sketches. 'It Started With A Sneeze' dates back to the very early 80's and was later added in the Mr. Bean series.
The only special feature included, is worth the price of the DVD alone.'A Quick Bash' is my absolute favorite, as Rowan stumbles across an Imaginary drum kit. It's Pure gold. I was so impressed with this live show, that I got audio's of his earlier Revues.
A highly recommended DVD, even just to see his lecture on Shakespearean acting in those bright blue tights!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Marverlous Bean, 5 July 2012
The marverlous Mr Bean was 1st seen on our screens on 1st Jan 1990 and is watched all over the world. Bean is purely a visual character and he, his mini and teddy have been on Tv, film and even adverts. His many amazing adventures has seen him in America, decorating his flat, at the dentists, and taking a photo of a guard at Buckingham Palace.
Mr Bean - the complete collection contains a whopping 12 dvd's. Thats All 14 episodes of the original series, 2 bean movies and believe it or not 47, 10 minute animated episodes.Well thats how many I've counted!!!
With that there are a set of stickers & your very own teddy, in a box that disguised as Mr Bean's suitcase. The only thing that was not included was the comic relief sketches, including when Beanie goes on 'Blind date'. Its a shame because they are little gems and absolutely hailerious. But there are 2 unseen Bean sketches which make up for the loss.
Thro'out the Dvd's there are some special features and games. If you are a Rowan Atkinson fan a must see is 'The story of Bean' which tells the story of Rowan and his world famous comic creation. It features footage of his early stage work and shows how gifted he is at visual comedy and mime. All the sound and picture on this collection is exellent and the original series is digitally re-mastered for it's 20 year Anniversary.
An amazing collection and a must buy for Mr Bean & Rowan Atkinson fans.
5 Stars..

4.0 out of 5 stars Batman & Takeshi !, 18 Mar. 2011
K20-The Legend of The Black mask is a Live action Manga film. A cross between Batman, Zorro & Robin Hood,it stars Takeshi Kaneshiro (House Of Flying Daggers,Warlords & Red Cliff). Set in an alternate reality where Japan wasn't in World War 2.A masked bandit called K20(or the fiend with 20 faces)is robbing from the rich and frames a circus acrobat (Takeshi) With the help of his eldery friend who makes gadgets, he goes undercover to stop K20 and to give money to the poor.
Its quite a long movie,running at aprox 2 hours and 20 minutes and in Japanese with English Subtitles. Martial Arts fans could be disappionted as there's really no martial arts action in the movie. With a really good story,plenty of 'Free Ruinning',acrobatics and fab special effects K20 is a very enjoyable movie. The Blu-ray is stunning with crisp & colurful visuals,cystal clear HD sound and a fab in depth making of feature.Reccommended viewing,especially if you are a fan of action adventure movies and of course the gorgeous Takeshi Kaneshiro!

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Owls, 6 Jan. 2011
Understanding Owls is a very nice book by Jemima Parry-Jones of The now International Centre for Birds of Prey in Gloucestershire.
It covers absolutely everything you want to know about Owls,from building an aviary to owning & training these magnifacent & majestic Birds of Prey.It has some great info including Biology & Taxonomy (Thats where the Owl fits into the Animal & Bird Kingdom)and is very down to earth.She does Waffle on a bit about The Centre and tries to put people off buying and training Owls.Saying about the noise,and that they do not make good pets.Tho' I do agree,owls are specialist birds & they do live a long time.
Anyway the Book also has some stunning colour photos and funny cartoon owls tho'out.All in all a great book just about Owls & at a good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Falconer's Encyclopedia, 5 Jan. 2011
The Encyclopedia Of Falconary is a Brilliant Book of over 1500 terms related to Falconary.It covers everything of this Fanisanating Art from the Middle ages to modern day.Set out like a dictorary and including lovely photos,illistrations and prints it is a very interesting read.I would highly recommend it to the modern Falconer,who is interested in The History and also as a reference to the many terms,birds and tools used today.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Little,Big Soldier, 5 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jackie Chan came up with the idea of 'Little,Big Soldier about 20 years ago.He stars as a peasent soldier,who dosn't want to be in a war and would like to become a farmer.He seizes the chance of just that when he comes across the injured general of the enemy and tries to return home with the general for his reward. What transpires is type of road trip with heart and a shock/emotional ending.Expect all the great trade mark J.C. stunts,action and awsome staged 'swordplay'
It is a very welcome return for Jackie to Hong Kong Cinema and has elements of 'Gladiator' but with sprinklings of comedy.So If you Liked J.C.'s early classic stuff,I am sure that you will enjoy this movie.
As for The Blu-ray,stunning picture & sound and the brilliant special features including a fasinating full length behind the scenes and interviews. It can be watched with English dubbing (Jackie seems to has a younger man's voice over!!) The Subtitles are easy to follow too. Watch out also for the Music video showing Jackie singing the catchy title song.Yes J.C sings!!and by the way, he has sung a lot of the themes for his movies too.
Highly Recommended Movie & Blu-ray

4.0 out of 5 stars STILL 1 OF THE BEST PIXAR'S, 15 Mar. 2010
'TOY STORY' IS A CLASSIC AND THE FIRST FULL-LENTGH COMPUTER GENERATED CARTOON REALEASED BY PIXAR.YOU KNOW THE STORY OF WOODY,BUZZ AND ANDY'S TOYS,WHO MAGICALLY COMES TO LIFE.I STILL REMEMBER GOING TO SEE THIS AT THE CINEMA WHEN IT WAS 1ST REALEASED IN 1995. I WAS TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY WITH THE GROUNDBREAKING ANIMATION,THE GREAT STORY AND FANTASTIC CHARACTERS.TO THIS DAY I STILL THINK THAT 'TOY STORY' IS STILL 1 OF THE BEST AND MOST ORIGINAL THAT PIXAR HAS REALEASED.
AS ALL PIXAR BLU-RAY'S 'TOY STORY' IS FABULOUS,THE PICTURE AND SOUND ARE TOALLY STUNNING.GREAT SPECIAL FEATURES AND WELL WORTH THE MONEY FOR BOTH BLU-RAY AND DVD COMBI.
I ALSO LIKE THE SHORT FEATURE WHERE 'BUZZ' AND NASA GO 'TO INFINITY & BEYOND!'
A MUST HAVE FOR THE DISNEY/PIXAR BLU-RAY COLLECTION.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE 'RUSH' CONTINUES!!, 10 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Rush Hour 3 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
JACKIE CHAN & CHRIS TUCKER ARE RE-UNITED AGAIN IN THE 3RD STALLMENT OF THE BRILLIANT 'RUSH HOUR' TRILOGY.THIS TIME THE AMBASSITOR IS SHOT (HIS DAUGHTER WAS KIDNAPPED IN THE 1ST MOVIE)AND THE DETECTIVES GOTO PARIS TO CRACK THE CASE.I FIND THIS FILM (ALONG WITH NO.2) ARE THE FUNNIER OF THE SERIES AND MORE PACKED WITH JACKIE'S MARTIAL ARTS & FAMOUS DEATH DEFINEING STUNTS.
IN HIGH DEF,THE FILM IS IMPRESSIVE WITH TOP NOTCH SOUND AND THE FANTASTIC EFTHEL TOWER SCENE LOOKS STUNNING WITH GREAT DETAIL.
ANOTHER BRILLIANT SEQUEL & VERY FUNNY FILM GIVEN THE BLU-RAY TREATMENT. HIGHLY RECCOMMEDED FOR ALL RUSH HOUR,JACKIE AND CHRIS FANS.
THE 'RUSH'CONTINUES!!
