A Most Violent Year
A Most Violent Year
Dvd
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow Going, 17 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Most Violent Year (DVD)
First thing to make clear is this is NOT a gangster film,the second is it's not at all violent despite the title.This is a pretty slow,understated crime drama,that's more about trying not to fight fire with fire.
The story revolves around Alba & his wife Anna,who have a business they are trying to expand supplying fuel in New York.Alba is an immigrant who has taken over the business his wife's father used to run,but he didn't exactly play by the rules.With his truck drivers & sales staff being attacked he is forced into maybe arming his drivers,which goes completely against the clean way he wishes to operate.The couple have problems raising money for the site they wish to buy,the DA's office has 14 inditements against them & they don't who is attacking their staff.
The Godfather comparison is a tad ridiculous & i can see why people may be disappointed.It's not bad,well acted with a good but very ordinary story of a quite ordinary couple.Watchable but it is a bit bland.

This review is from: The Interview (DVD)
Seth Rogen has yet to be in a decent film,comedy is obviously not his thing because once again this is devoid of any jokes.Absolute rubbish,it's just a mess & far too long with a dreadfully ill conceived "plot".
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!!! There should be a "no star" rating.

This review is from: Still Alice (DVD)
The story of Alice Howland,a teacher of linguistics at Columbia in New York who begins to forget words,gets lost jogging on campus & losing things,shower gel in the fridge?
Afer three months of secretly seeing a neurologist,she decides to tell her husband.Eventually diagnosed with early on set Alzheimer's she tells her children & telling them this is a genetic strain of the disease.
A strong supporting cast in Alec Baldwin & Kristen Stewart giving fine performances but it's Julianne Moore who steals the film with,at times,a very moving performance.
Alzheimer's is talked about but it's almost a bit taboo,i knew about the memory loss as most do,but after watching this & the interview with Julianne in the extras,there is SO much more to this cruel disease.
Very very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassingly Poor, 15 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chappie (Amazon Instant Video)
This is the most cringe worthy sci-fi film I've seen in sometime.The acting is woefully bad with desperate attempts to make you feel sorry for Chappie,who has become a guinea pig for a new AI program.The film is a mixture of SHORT CIRCUIT,AI & DISTRICT 9 but this is the poor relation.The only bonus here are the effects,which are very good,,spot the ED209 lookalike.....hhmmm!!
Watch any of the three above if you haven't already,but this is worth avoiding.

This review is from: Etch And Etch Deep (Audio CD)
An album of instrumentals which are wonderfully simple.The arrangements are a mixture of real instruments & some interesting electronics with catchy hooks thrown in.Fancy something a bit different,then this is well worth a listen.Amazing how much you can do with basically 4 chords as a foundation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out Of The Shadows, 14 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Georgia (Audio CD)
Impressive debt from Kate Tempest drummer.An interesting album from someone who has obviously found her own sound avoiding the influence of Tempest,not a dance album but plenty of good beats & some fine electrics which vary dramatically from track to track.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing, 11 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a mess,the plot is dreadful & feels like an after thought behind the training of the new recruit.This is meant to be a nod to all those fun spy films of the past,James Bond then,but i don't know any Bond film with so much bad language & some pretty vile characters.Samuel L Jackson is a wet weekend for a villain but that does fit with recent Bond villain,best bits are the gadgets & one or two of the fight scenes.
A very mildly amusing plotless (wafer thin at best) mess.

This review is from: Whiplash [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Best film I've seen this year,up there with "American Sniper" & even "Boyhood".Don't be put off by the subject because no knowledge of jazz is needed & the drumming is nothing short of incredible.Stunning performances from Miles Teller,John Niemen,the promising musician & J.K. Simmons,Mr Fletcher,his tyrant of a teacher.
This is a sort of musical equivalent to "Full Metal Jacket" with Mr Fletcher the gunnery Sgt pushing harder & harder.Great film,a real must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended, 26 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: National Gallery (DVD)
An incredibly engrossing fly on the wall look behind the scenes at the London gallery.This is not really about the art work,although we do join talks every now & then or drop in on conversations about pictures.It's more about the day to day working,restoration & cleaning,making frames,making films about some of the art work & how things are displayed & lit.
At three hours long it's a marathon but i was glued,no knowledge of art is needed to enjoy this just a comfy chair,time & lots of tea or coffee.Well worth watching, very very good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor, Best Avoided, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beyond (DVD)
A "romantic" drama which follows Cole & Maya who meet at a party.The news on the tv tells of an approaching asteroid but it's not really clear if it's an asteroid or aliens.The film flashes back & forth from before & after the invasion,showing the effect it has on their relationship as they try to stay hidden,but only at night as the aliens don't come out during the day.
This is dreadful,it's not a particularly good drama but fails in epic style in the sci-fi department.There is the odd shot of a hanging spacecraft but it feels like an after thought.The synopsis gives a completely WRONG impression of what you're about to watch,a miserable British drama about two people who don't really get on & ,as characters,you really couldn't care what happens to them because they're not that likable.
Don't waste your time.
