Locke
Locke
Dvd
Offered by Lovefilm UK Limited
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Must be C6, 8 Sep 2014
This review is from: Locke (DVD)
One man in a car driving to London,he turned the wrong way when he left work & now we watch his life collapse around him.Ivan Locke has worked for the same construction company for ten years & has not put a foot wrong.But a one night stand comes back with a nasty bite to the arse.The most important day in his working life looms & he wont be there.
Tom Hardy is the only person in this film,the only other voices are from the numerous phone calls he has while driving.

This is a play,it is different but i was glued & i dont know why but i did feel a certain amount of tension.Deserves more than one star!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Delivery Man Forgets Laughs, 8 Sep 2014
This review is from: Delivery Man (DVD)
The plot is nice & simple,sperm donor who discovers he has 533 children & around 140 of them now want to know who thier father is.
He's made over 600 donations & it turns out his sperm was SO good it was over used,some of his off spring challenge his right to aninimity.Just to complicate things a little more,his girlfriend his pregnant & wants him to get a life,time to face up to the past.

Whilst being quite heart warming at times,this is just not funny enough.At times it's closer to being a wishy washy drama that happens to be mildly amusing & that's all it is,mildly amusing.
Watchable but should have been much much funnier,surely the subject matter has a moutain of decent laughs,unused,in a heap somewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Mr Vernon......, 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The seminal 80's teen movie.I saw this at a preview showing back in 85,i was handed a yellow piece of card while walking through Wokingham,it just had the title,where & a time & it was free.
One of,if not the best to come from John Hughes,who wrote the sceenplay in just two days.The film is set in a high school detention on a Saturday.Five students,a princess,a basket case,a brain,an athlete & a criminal come together as strangers but over 8 hours 54 mins they open up to each other & leave the best of friends.
This is almost a study in human behaviour & what a great way to sort out your issues,it's pretty much a counciling session.

A film you have to see because you've probably read this & thought,"god what a bore that sounds".A little dated but still funny & quite touching at times.Judd Nelson steals the show as John Bender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Love is no stranger to prison, 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Starred Up (Amazon Instant Video)
Eric Love is no stranger to prison,it starts with him being transfered to the prison where his violent dad is also bieng held.His dad wants him to join a program to deal with his violence issues,aswell as playing by the rules on the wing,after all a quiet wing is "good for business".At 19 years old this is no young offenders but Eric is starred up,a leader but it might not mean much locked up with the big boys.
A gritty & at times violent prison drama,seen quite a few like it but this is one of the best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Yawn!, 6 Sep 2014
This review is from: The Quiet Ones (DVD)
What a waste of time this was,yet another cliche riddled so called horror film.NOT scary,NOT creepy & i suspect some very very wonky science.There are too many films like this & it's now boring,give us temptation not vien attempts to make us jump!

I feel ripped off.

This review is from: Arkology (Audio CD)
Excellent!! Perry is the godfather of dub in my book.A truly great collection & one of THE best introductions to an artist.None of todays artists will be still producing such fine albums so late in life.Perry is hard to beat.10 stars needed!

3.0 out of 5 stars THINK before you type!!, 3 Sep 2014
This is NOT a review,but you may like to read this anyway.
Over the last few years i have posted over 100 reviews on Amazon,some film some music.I am no expert & i doubt you are either,it's just a bit of fun & MY point of view or yours.
As you may have found out,fellow Amazon customers can make comments about what you've written & it's then passed back via email to you.I have removed myself from this because some of the comments were less about the film & more about me,sweeping judgements from people i DO NOT know & DONT know me & never will.

So the next time you write a comment remember,it's about the film/album etc NOT the reviewer.I am not a writer & have no intentions of becoming one,i am not a film critic & don't write reviews to get "credibility" as someone thought about me.,i am not an expert.

AND NIETHER ARE YOU.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Give 2 & A Half Stars, 31 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Double (DVD)
A dark & atmospheric film that is funny in places.The setting could be now or in the not too distant future as most of the film is set at the place of work or in his/thier flat.This did remind me of Terry Gilliams "Brazil" but nowhere near as good,the mixture of old & new,the almost unreachable girl & the slight problem of red tape & following rules.
It's a good idea but not that well done,it's slow & seems to take ages to get to where Simons double enters the mix,probably because there is only just enough to hold the attention.The characters are dull & it really lacks laughs,i smiled a few times but didn't need my sides sewing up.
See all those stars on the dvd,you'd do well to ignore them,it aint that good.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Mary, 31 Aug 2014
This review is from: I, Frankenstein (DVD)
Boring! should have been a really good gothic horror with more emphisis on the horror.Dull characters in a film that has every cliche in the book,CGI driven nonesense.Best avoided.
