4.0 out of 5 stars Strange but true - well, kind of, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: Edge Of Love [DVD] (DVD)
A film with Kiera Knightly at her best...and everyone else at their best too, great film set during the second world war - partly in London, partly in Wales. It follows the lives of four main characters and the plot, is informed by a love triangle. Without giving the whole story away, it is based on a true story involving a infamous poet and philanderer, Dylan Thomas. True it is slow but it's a film that's worth paying attention to - however if you don't like old style editing (reminded me of a film made during the 50's, pace wise) or history based films - you won't like this one, but I loved it as a thoughtful alternative to all the fast and furious box office hits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cross 'it's a wonderful life' with 'a Christmas carol', and this is what you've got!, 4 Feb 2011
This review is from: The Family Man [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
It's one of those films you want to watch again and again; particularly around christmas. Sure, Nicolas Cage has been in lots of films, but I think this is his best performance by far! it's a film which is a cross between 'It's a Wonderful Life' and 'A Christmas Carol', except well better and set in the present. Parents of young children will find it no doubt full of ironic humour and the shower scene is highly amusing (great leading lady!). If you haven't seen it and your a romanic comedy fan - get!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent condition, 4 Feb 2011
I was surprised just how good the condition was for the price, played well and it was also delivered before the date I was emailed. I would recommend this provider to anyway, fab movie too a real tear jerker and a feel good element at the end.
