5.0 out of 5 stars God Bless Mary Shelley, 2 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My New Year's resolution was to start reading books more. I have only a 3 chapters to go now. This is a lot more in depth than the film(s). I am finding it most fascinating with the characterisations that Mary Shelley gives. It also gives an inkling into her psyche on the night in question with Byron and Shelley (her husband). Don't forget there was a huge storm on that particular night they wrote their stories.

I can't imagine what life would be like without Mary Shelley having wrote such a book. I think it got GPs, specialists and scientists from when it got published not to fear going "over the boundaries" of surgery, biology, etc.. Neurology might have never existed as it does today. Thank You Mary!!

A bit of a shock to find that Saturday and Sundays aren't on one page. Despite that, just as good. Does the job.

Received very early! Just in time for New Years Eve - couldn't wait to watch it. I wasn't disappointed; being a big lover of Hammer films.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Basil Brush,,,,,,,,,,,,not that fox imposter!, 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remember watching Basil on tv while growing up. I have the original Basil B's dvd. I never got any of the annuals for birthdays, let alone Christmas! This was in great condition, considering its' age. The stories were typical of his character and games would appeal more to children than adults, yet fun anyway. I don't regret buying it. At least I now have it with me, even though it would have meant a lot more if I had it back in 1976.

5.0 out of 5 stars Too Many Boxsets - it is confusing!!...., 2 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was trying to find a collection of Joan's films that would satisfy my "fussy" taste. Shame they are so many boxsets! As far as I am concerned this is the best for me.

"Mildred Pierce" I have watched before and is one of her great films. Love it.
"What Ever Happened to Baby Jane" - I genuinely thought that a infamous kitchen scene was in but wasn't. I must have been confusing this with another film, Despite that, it felt like I was watching tennis between the main characters - WOW - such strong, mesmerising, Oscar winning performances from both Joan and Bette. I have never watched this one before. I enjoyed every second.
"Possessed" a film noir - she gives another strong performance. So much so, she was nominated for an Oscar - shame she didn't get it. This is dark, psychological film, in which her character is so mentally unstable, her love for "David Sutton" is literally suffocating him; she just wants to "love him to death". Does she succeed? That is for you to find out............
"Grand Hotel" she has a minor early role. It is evident that you can see her talent as an actress of what she would become: extremely talented by being choosy as to which films she would take on. .

The most important things Joan did best was to choose her films wisely, become a perfectionist and not to take "any crap" from anyone. If becoming a control freak is a crime in the world of acting, she is guilty. Despite that, she will always be One Helluva Great Actress. No one comes near her acting ability; especially in tisi day and age This is her legacy.

First time for me. I love thrillers and chillers. This was different, original and mesmerising. Superb acting throughout and from a great director. Direction is ALWAYS important in this genre. Bad direction makes a bad film. This certainly isn't - far from it.
