its action sequences are alright, Dracula is portrayed as a powerful foe, the joker is not what was expecting,

Logan's Run
Logan's Run

2.0 out of 5 stars not the classic I'm looking for, 12 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logan's Run (Amazon Instant Video)
its a product of its time, I don't believe it is aging very well
the acting is ropey the story is ludicrous they spend a lot of effort to get out and in 1 day they walk a long way find 1 random nutter and then want to go back again and to get back in all they have to do is jump in a pond.

if it was so easy to get in their prison why was it so hard to get out?

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mulan (Amazon Instant Video)
can't say I was enjoying anything about this, its too long too sappy, at no time could you mistake Mulan for a male in this film are we expect to believe no one could see the obvious

Sherlock Holmes - A Study in Scarlet
Sherlock Holmes - A Study in Scarlet
Dvd
Price: £3.49

3.0 out of 5 stars holmes is good, watson is showing signs of learning, 1 Feb. 2015
this is good in that you can see the wheels turning if you look closely enough
holmes knows how to solve a riddle, he just needs to know the source of the code
watson demonstrates that he is learning the ways of holmes & as in the books shows he is also missing some key sights in a room
you can see holmes bully his way to what he wants, con people to buy time to investigate
there's some theatrical nonsense going on here the asian actors barely do any acting and when they do they're little more than a cardboard cut out standing in the scene. the little notes that crop up throughout are just barely relevant to the story yet have no bearing at all


Lost London
Lost London

2.0 out of 5 stars some interesting bits, 28 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost London (Kindle Edition)
some interesting bits, lets you know where things were, most of which seem to have vanished long ago, the most recent would be a street/cinema(Astoria) gone from Tottenham Court road within the last few years.
in terms of what things it details well they're all pretty ancient, there's basically nothing of more recent times (say 20th century, 60s/70s/80s) unless mentioned in relation to something much older

good period film where they acknowledge the the kung fu man isn't going to beat a bullet from a gun
great action pieces, - amazingly dodgy acting from the gaijin playing the foreign army :)
