3.0 out of 5 stars Just how I remembered, 6 May 2013

This review is from: Preppies [DVD] (DVD)
This is not a great film by any means but if you were caught up in the genre back in the 80's then this will take you there. there are some classic scenes and some rather droll ones. Reason for three stars is it is dated and done now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Caro is a Diamond!, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good engaging album. From the foot tapping start of "That Man" right to the end, the sound and style feels both new and nostalgic. She has a voice range that makes it sound like there must be two or three different singers, all of them good. A great buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A get up and dance cd., 6 May 2013

I think this is just what you need at a Party or BBQ to get the pace moving. It begins like a film score, but by the time you get to Track four, you will be bopping all round the room. Excellent stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old Greg., 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this film, Gregory Peck is massive in the role of Hornblower and pulls off the mans hidden agonies with ease.
Virginia Mayo is beautiful and gives a very solid performance as the sister of influence and power. Their growing romance is a real delight, but there is also enough action and heroism to keep the adrenalin flowing. Well worth your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elke Sommers fancies Ken Williams??, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carry On Behind [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
This seems to be some sort of mish-mash, that was thrown together in haste. The idea of two archeologists looking for Roman ruins is okay, but never really explored to full comic potential. Windsor Davies in the role usually taken by Sid James, tries his best but is unconvincing as his vast personality battles with weak dialogue. The two "birds" look bored throughout the whole picture, and the beautiful Adrienne Posta is wasted and given a chance would have blown the "dollybirds" out of the water. Elke Sommer is great though, and really tries to pull off her language mixing role. Ken Williams is on form, but I felt their "romance" could have been better handled. Not bad though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sandy romp is a bit of a mirage, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This could have been much better I feel. It has all the elements and some good comedy actors, but seems to have been built around Phil Silvers, who is basically playing a Foreign Legion version of Bilko. although it has plenty of Carry-on regulars, Sid James and Kenneth Conner are sadly absent. The film tends to slow down a lot at intervals and apart from a very sexy dance by Anita Harris, the women are under used and the wonderful Joan Simms almost left out. Still a joy, but smiles more than laughs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great acting., 13 Feb. 2013

This review is from: The Door [DVD] (DVD)
Odd tale of time reversal or travel, but a little too much has to be swallowed. Very watchable for all that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dependable journey into the past, 13 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The carry-on mob is slightly under represented here, but Sid and the two Kenneths are in it, that said the film moves along quite fast as the characters odd ball personalities are revealed. I had to laugh when its revealed that one of the "babes" is out to find a husband! It's a very nice stroll down memory lane, and for the younger fan, a window into a much more innocent world. Fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice suprise, 2 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was not sure what I was getting when I bought this, but it was a real delight. A very interesting take on Victorian/Edwardian history that rarely see's the light. An origional story, well told, very well acted and a good ending.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but this is so wrong, 2 Nov. 2012
Th movie: The Running Man is a good ole' Arnie romp, and good fun if you like popcorn in film mode.
But, if you are buying this because you read the Stephen King book, you have just wasted your money. The only things that are the same are the names of some of the characters. It is a completely different story and does not bother with the book story at all. In the book Richards is an out of work husband and father who goes to the Games to make some money for his sick daughter. In the film he is a wronged cop!
Oh my goooood!
