5.0 out of 5 stars A problem with Vampires, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Introduced my two daughters - aged 19 and 16 - to this movie last week. They enjoyed it as much as I always have. Great performances from a young cast, lots of humour - and one of the greatest sound tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Save "Home Fires", 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Home Fires - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
A good enough set of yarns with interesting characters and some nice plotlines but is it really true it is to be scrapped?

Price: £5.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Back to the Icy North, 17 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good translation although sometimes the modernised wording fits uneasily with the flow of the poetry. Overall a worthwhile experience. The notes were very useful


The Lickerish Quartet Dual Format [Blu-ray] [1970][Region Free]
The Lickerish Quartet Dual Format [Blu-ray] [1970][Region Free]
Dvd ~ Silvana Venturelli
Price: £9.38

2.0 out of 5 stars If you want a memory/fantasy film you are much better off with the long "Celine and Julie Go Boating", 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want a memory/fantasy film you are much better off with the long "Celine and Julie Go Boating". If you want attractive naked women then there are a wealth of much better alternatives. This movie is slow and tedious and despite. The acting is minimalist at best and the long silences - presumably meant to be heavy with anticipation and mystery - merely slow down an already snail pace movie.

The Secret Of My Success [Blu-ray]
The Secret Of My Success [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Michael J. Fox
Price: £6.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Test of time well stood, 25 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this film when it first came out. It shows how well it carries that my youngest daughter who is 16 thought it as good as I did.


Anna Akhmatova: Poems (Everyman's Library POCKET POETS)
Anna Akhmatova: Poems (Everyman's Library POCKET POETS)
by Anna Akhmatova
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket treasure, 25 May 2016

The story of this remarkable poet is tragic and reflects so much of the waste and destructiveness of the Stalin years. A marvellous little volume.

The Nymphomaniac / The Nymphomaniac Part 2 [2DVD] [Region 2] (English audio)

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the subtitles., 25 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The copy had undeletable Polish subtitles that were extremely distracting.

Other than that the film is as controversial as people expect. This is a film for thinking on and not a film for stimulation.


You've Got Mail [DVD] [1998]
You've Got Mail [DVD] [1998]

3.0 out of 5 stars Gentle entertainment, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: You've Got Mail [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Well it is gentle and utterly derivative but good entertainment nevertheless. It is a reteaming following "Sleepless in Seattle" which remains the much better of the two.

And doesn't the technology look so out of date now?

Well my daughter didn't succeed all that well but that may not be because of the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic treasure, 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set of films from Keaton. The comedy remains after all these years. Keaton specialised in people coming good almost in spite of themselves and this is a treasure of a set.
