This review is from: Cockneys Vs Zombies [DVD] (DVD)
Anticipated this for some time after catching a clip online. Bit disappointed with it in the end and unfortunately the add 'shows all the best bits'... Buy if you're like me and are a Zombie Movie Completist! Otherwise pass... Anyone expecting Snatch/Lock Stock.. vs Zombies will be seriously disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album., 6 Aug 2014
This review is from: Fire and Ice (Audio CD)
Personally I find this one of Yngwies' best albums after 'Eclipse'. There's a couple of instrumentals that far outweigh some of his efforts released after. I do believe that his style changed a bit after a car accident. He admitted to as much in an interview where he even went on to say that for a period of time he actually forgot how to play!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with the 1 disc edition., 6 Aug 2014

Bizarre horror. If you don't mind subtitles and a largely unknown Korean cast then this is definitely worth a visit. 2 disc edition is loaded with extras. I don't know why they bothered releasing a single disc version. Single disc version by the way will have 'disc 1' printed on it... ?!

Great film with lots of atmospheric action and some very good set pieces. Douglas and Harris work well together and the pace never falls short. Some great period extras and interviews.

Great addition to any collection. New amaray case edition (Boxset) won't sit well with the previously released carded boxsets on a shelf - but it's a small complaint. If a neat shelf is your thing - then go for the complete boxset in white. Spoiler alert! - gone is Crockets' Daytona in the first episode but the now familiar white Ferrari Testarossa gets a look in early on. Car fanatics should note that the Daytona was a replica based on a Chevy platform but the Testarossa was the real deal. For some bizarre reason the Daytona re-appears again in episode 7: "El Viejo" after being 'blown up' in episode 1: "When Irish Eyes Are Crying"!??... go figure. Recommend.

Great low budget horror. A nice addition to my steelbook collection. Shot in the style of The Book of Eli. I found it very enjoyable and superior in comparison to say... Priest for example...

5.0 out of 5 stars steelbook, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rare Steelbook version of the film. I reckon this got a poor reception when it came out because Predator Vs Alien probably wasn't all it could have been (although I loved it) Chances are this would've been more entertaining with a more established cast. The story was there and so were the action scenes. I think what lets it down was simply the casting. Hopefully this won't tarnish any further sequel - having said that there is already talk of 're-booting' the entire franchise which in my humble opinion would be a mistake, a waste of time and an awful indictment on the Alien/Predator films with Arnold Schwarzennegger and Sigourney Weaver.

Good film and despite the fact that it's animated actually delivers well in terms of the legend in comparison to some other filmed versions. The steelbook has nice artwork and is a decent compliment to any collection. Highly recommended.

When Eight Bells Toll [DVD]
When Eight Bells Toll [DVD]
Dvd ~ Anthony Hopkins
Price: 3.60

5.0 out of 5 stars It tolls for thee..., 2 Feb 2013
This review is from: When Eight Bells Toll [DVD] (DVD)
Anthony Hopkins in an early role as the spy who came in from the 'low-budget' arena. Filmed in the era of 'James Bond' this is a really decent stab at a book by Alistair McLean. Great action scenes in terms of the budget allowed and great use of the location in Scotland and thereabouts. Hopkins was surprisingly athletic in his youth and swallows every scene he's in despite his youthful good looks. He manages to steal every scene in the film and it comes as no surprise that he eventually became a household name as an actor... The soundtrack is good too and delightfully early 70's!
