4.0 out of 5 stars Life's a beach and then you die!!, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Still the Water - Subtitled (DVD)
For me this worked on two levels. Firstly, a beautifully produced film about young love that develops slowly (sometimes too slowly) amid a complication family background for both of the young people concerned. It heads towards the "arty" end of the spectrum but avoids being too much style over substance. On the second level, it's a wonderful exploration of Japanese society and culture. Well worth a watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars The start of a relationship at the end of time, 25 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Velociraptor - Subtitled (DVD)
An interesting concept that presents one answer to the age-old question "what would you do, if you had minutes left before you die?". A delightful exploration of the relationship between two friends as they slowly uncover their deepest feelings for each other and life in general. A slow burner that gradually develops and eventually reaches an inevitable conclusion but is unlikely to offend anyone. A delightful movie that is well worth sticking with.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did those that liked it watch the same film as I did?, 25 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drown (DVD)
The storyline strains credibility in the first place, even though there's the makings of a plot in there somewhere. Appalling editing that jumps all over the place in an attempt to make the film look good and you jump from a nightclub to a beach and back again for no apparent reason. I just couldn't keep up with it! The final scenes were just too much to take.

1.0 out of 5 stars Design disaster - don't waste your money, 29 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like many others,. I was looking for a replacement of existing item apparently of same design. This has to be the worst designed bit of equipment that I have come across and its only saving grace was the fact that I haven't wasted too much money. It's supposed to be surface mounting but it isn't - you have to drill a large (at least 15mm) hole to accommodate the central bell pus mechanism otherwise any pressure from the coiled wires will push the front off. You get two 25mm long screws, which is a massive overkill because all they do is to hold a thin plastic plate to the door frame. This plate is supposed to hold the front white unit containing the bell push mechanism but the only connection between the two is a tiny plastic lug. There appears to be nothing holding the round light and bell push into this white plastic bit. I have now had to go elsewhere looking for something that will actually do what is, in the end, a very simple job but a job that is clearly beyond the designers of this bit of kit.

It was a bit fiddly adjusting it to fit my particular vehicle and they don't give any details that you can adjust/move the bits that actually come into contact with the ventilator to suit your car.

1.0 out of 5 stars hardly worth getting out of the envelope, 5 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Retaliation - Subtitled (DVD)
Like a lot of yakuza type films this one introduces characters 20 or 30 at a time and I had a lot of trouble figuring out who was doing what to whom. Some of them appear just so that they can die quickly and in a gruesome manner without you even finding out who they were or what their role in the gang was. Somewhere in the background there was the thread of a story line running through the film but it was difficult to follow. This film clearly comes from the early days of Japanese cinema and is poorly constructed and filmed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A video buffet in french, 26 Jun. 2015

It starts with a shocker but then turns into an entertaining collection of mixed short films - some funny, some sexy and some I didn't really get to grips with. Well worth a watch

1.0 out of 5 stars Sex yes, romance no!!, 26 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Romance - Subtitled (DVD)
Only the French could make it, would make it or could understand what it's all meant to be about. A good looking wife is not getting any at home so she goes looking for it anywhere she can. We never actually find out why the husband doesn't want it but he does make it clear that there's nothing wrong with his equipment which still doesn't explain how she ends up pregnant if he never uses it. The rest of the film just sets out to shock under the guise of "art" and, as the previous reviewer says, it's all totally pointless

1.0 out of 5 stars graphic it is, erotic it's not, 17 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Unfaithful (DVD)
The title is a meaningless word that bears no relevance to what goes on. It's a sort of candid camera approach to a rather pointless coming together of two total strangers in the name of an "experiment". Whilst it's true that there is some brutally frank man on man sex but any eroticism is lost due to frequent pauses in the passion to either move the camera or have a "meaningful discussion" about their feelings and whether they want to go on with the "experiment" or not. At one point the director that staged the film declares that he can't continue when he's hungry and leaves to get a takeaway. Well that's ok, but do we have to watch the front door (uncut) waiting for him to come back? What gradually becomes apparent is that the unsophisticated use of unmanned cameras is actually a directors choice to make the whole film "arty" and this includes long periods of a black, blank screen lit by the occasional match being struck.
