Macbeth [DVD] [1971]
Macbeth [DVD] [1971]
Dvd ~ Jon Finch
Price: 5.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film!, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macbeth [DVD] [1971] (DVD)
One to watch and treasure. I am currently studying Shakespeare's Macbeth and this film brought to life the story quite graphically - quite how I think Shakespeare would have wanted it portrayed on film if he were alive today. The acting is superb and particularly enamour to Martin Shaw's (The Professionals/Judge Deed) role as General Banquo - really watchable stuff! I think along with the McKellen/Dench version this is the definitive film to watch for Macbeth. Buy It.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old? Corny? Nice!!!, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Terrornauts [DVD] (DVD)
I love the old Sci-Fi films of the 50s and 60s and this one fitted the bill for me. Back then of course, the effects weren't all that brilliant, but gloss over them and watch an entertaining film. The DVD cover might hint at more than what the film has to offer, but still I would recommend the film and look forward to further releases of 'forgotten' films being commissioned/brought to DVD by Amazon.


Assassination [DVD]
Assassination [DVD]
Dvd ~ Charles Bronson
Price: 6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Bronson - Great!, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Assassination [DVD] (DVD)
Bronson at his best, but then was he any different. This is a good action movie and a good developing plot throughout. Several different leads fool the viewer as to who the assassin works for and one wonders at a love trist developing between protector (Charles Bronson) and protected (Jill Ireland). Buy it - you won't be disappointed.


Major Barbara [DVD]
Major Barbara [DVD]
Dvd ~ Wendy Hiller

Price: 9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 1940's Film, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Major Barbara [DVD] (DVD)
Super 1941 film. There are so many lost gems out there and this is one of them. Wendy Hiller is a super actress of her time - remember her in Sailor of The King, for example, made some years later. Also, look out for a very young Deborah Kerr! So, if you are into black and white 1940's films, buy it and don't be disappointed.

STYLEYOURMOBILE SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 S III I9300 PRINTED MAGNETIC FLIP PU LEATHER CASE COVER POUCH + SCREEN PROTECTOR + STYLUS (Lilac Diamond Flip)
Offered by Style Your Mobile Limited
Price: 9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Cover, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Highly functional and stylish cover. It sparkles, but why not as this cover is definitely for the girls and ladies in your life - or for them to buy for themsleves. The stylus pen that came with it was quite large - so not so easily lost as the smaller versions that can be purchased separately. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Cover for Youngsters!, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A definite hit with our youngster! It doesn't protect the screen, being just a back cover, but used around the home (or for indoor use) it is absolutely ideal. For school and outdoor use she uses a full cover, but at as soon as she is home this one takes over for evenings and weekends. Be prepared for a wait when ordering as it comes from the Far East (2-3 weeks approx) but don't let that stop you buying it - highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Owl Print Bag - Brilliant!, 14 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag met all the requirements for our youngster at school - functional, spacious and, as far as she was concerned, very pretty! But it's not only school children who like this bag as I have seen a number of grown women with the same bag too - used for small shopping trips or a back pack to the beach. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a lovely film!, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Late for Dinner (1991) (VHS Tape)
Interesting plot. Good acting. Fun and weepy moments. Frozen in time and then years later come back and fall in love with their loves who are now 29 years older than themselves! There's even the daughter who answers the door to her long lost father - looking exactly as he did the way she remembered him 29 years earlier. Pity it has not been released on DVD? Get the hanky out! Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film for its day!, 12 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Play it Cool [DVD] (DVD)
This is exactly how we churned out pop films in the sixties, so I rate it 5-star as it compares favourably with all and better than some. What in heavens name is the problem with the current 3-star reviewer, I don't know. One bland comment suggests that, and I quote: "Dennis Price actually looks quite embarrassed". Duh! I am guessing that the reviewer hasn't seen many films featuring Dennis Price (spelt with an i, not y). Just look at Dennis Price in the 1949 film: Kind Hearts And Coronets thirteen years earlier - same Dennis Price and pretty much identical acting - that's Dennis Price folks!

Anyway, let's not detract too much from Billy Fury, who's acting and 'stage presence' in the film were impeccable, and the voice and style - superb! So it was a weak plot, so it might seem a little corny or dated to modern audiences (not me!). This was one well-acted and well-directed 1960's film. Billy was great. The supporting cast was great (including Dennis Price). Richard Wattis was a little troublesome to watch - but hey, that's showbiz. Highly recommended!
