5.0 out of 5 stars Greenwell remembers Sir Noel, 6 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A delightful and accurate concert on Noel Coward. Peter Greenwell shows a superb understanding of "The Master" with his anecdotes and interpretations.
Having known Peter Greenwell many years ago, it is worth checking out his 2 musicals Twenty Minutes South and The Crooked Mile. Both interesting and slightly off beat. More intimate shows than the usual expectations from this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Multi Region, 7 April 2015
I am staggered at the low star reviews or should I say "quotes. Many DVD players are - and have been for some years - REGION FREE..
If all the lower star reviewers are stuck with Region 2 only players, go check them out with a dealer and have the region restriction chip
taken out. Result a multi region player suitable for worldwide produced discs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good Content - Faulty Copy, 11 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Me Or (Audio CD)
Unfortunately the disc was damaged. The bonus tracks had distortion and excess noise. That said, Im sure this was
a 'one off' from a duff batch. On contacting the seller, I received a full refund. The contents of a non faulty copy would
be excellent. The overture (no problems) is an excellent example of the recording in Stereo Sound.
Apart from the disc being faulty, the contents are excellent and should be preserved in the catalogues for
many years

1.0 out of 5 stars Cinematic Production at its Worst., 17 Jun. 2014
This review is from: City of Angels [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Throw a stack of money at a tardy production team for a sensitive story. The result is seen in this offering.
Dreadful performances from Cage and Ryan combined with an attrocious script worthy only for publication in some junk
comic. Editing is totally ill timed and inconsistent. I have to ask if the film was constructed as a macabre joke to gauge
how may viewers would be taken in and start waffling about deep and hidden meanings. Attrocious in every respect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not fit for purpose, 15 May 2014
Regardless of the many positive reviews of this product. I have found it does not do what it says on the tin.
As a cleanibng agent maybe albeit slightly abrasive. For removing light scratches (yes light not deep) then forget it. The claims are misleading and should be re written.

3.0 out of 5 stars Failing Fabric, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only average product. Colours interesting and unusual, The cover quality is mediocre with the fabric
begining to fray after the first few months. Would suggest better material with the same colour scheme.
Manufacturers of this product please take note.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent collection of films. I agree with the general 5 star reviews. Why the 3 Star?? Because of
my concern over quality issues on the Gingerbread Man. These irritations are mentioned fully under my 2 star
review of the single issue of this film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Adding to the 2 star reviews, 27 April 2014
I agree with the general consensus of the 2 star reviewers. That said, my reason for comment is to offer a word of caution
to buyers considering the film included in the 3 film box set. If the single release is the same as the muliple set, beware of the technical failure of the 1.85 aspect ratio. In many scenes the top of the picture is cut off and the credits are too large and go off the screen.
The transfer could have been better. In short it stands out as a less than professional job.
That said - if the above single copy is a later issue maybe my comments should be ignored. Just the old adage
"buyer beware".

1.0 out of 5 stars A Halucinatory Rave. Result: Garbage, 1 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am totally at the other end of the spectrum regarding an opinion of Poltergeist.

The one genre where American films usually fall down is the supernatural. This one hits a bulls eye collapse....... We know what to expect from reel one.

Supernatural events (even if combined with horror) are conjoured up by fear. Fear of the unseen and unknown. Unexplained atmospheres and instances that provide enormous feelings of uncertainty and dread. What have we here? A poor almost pathetic script. This combined with a director and production team having thrown every piece of their various areas of film learning into an undisciplined pot. (The proverbial ship without a rudder comes to mind)

All this with collapsing furniture, studio thunderstorms and gales, open mouthed women (and men)clutching each other and screaming trite phrases as they become rain soaked from head to toe.

Where Steven Spielberg was when producing this two hours of adolescent celluloid beggars belief. (Probably concentrating on his brilliant film E.T. released the same year).

A word of credit. The technicians and special effects team SERIOUSLY deserve full praise for first class expertise in their individual areas. Also a superb performance by "the lovable dog". Pity they were wasted on a film of dross from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect interpretation of the Great Songs from the Evergreen Era, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been totally captivated by the 3 Great American Songbook (9 episodes) series recently on TV, Michael Feinstein
and his dedication to reseach of the 'Golden' era of song combined with his interpretation of the lyrics together with faultless orchestration made this a 'must buy for me'. Until I saw the TV series I never gave him enough thought. How wrong can one be?

I now own many of his CDs all are superb in their own way. When 'Oh when' will we be able to purchase the TV series
on UK Amazon...Yes they are available from the States but with a pretty high postage and the chance of import duty.
Definately go buy The Israel Philharmonic disc. Perfection.
