The Blues Brothers [Blu-ray] [1980] [Region Free]
The Blues Brothers [Blu-ray] [1980] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ John Belushi
Price: £10.15

5.0 out of 5 stars WITH US FOREVER, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen the stage show 3 times in Oxford, Canterbury and London, and the film at least 6 times and it never ceases to entertain, cause laughter and frankly excite my irrational tendencies for absurd, unreal slapstick comedy. And the chases are some of the best ever filmed. And the music and revered musicians appearing are something else.

A classic that will titillate generation after generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars KEEP THE OLD LADIES HAPPY!, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A breath of fresh air, originality, hilarity, and fine acting in this marvellous romp starting in the hallowed portals of the old world epitome of splendour and elegance The Hotel Budapest. The cast is superbly led by Ralph Fiennes, playing the hotel general manager who does whatever is necessary to keep his older female guests happy, contented and returning.

It is when one of his 'older very wealthy dear ladies' dies and leaves her considerable fortune to him, much to the anger of her very large extended family, that frantic events, murder and wild chases take place, that are in the tradition of The Blues Brothers, Indiana Jones and The Pirates of The Caribbean chaotic chase scenes.

'Hammy' overacting, earthy language, and exuberant fantasy-like sets are the order of the day in this film which is very funny, gripping and excellent entertainment.

For it's originality, panache, settings, and outstanding 'make-you-laugh' comedic values "Grand Budapest Hotel" richly and justifiably deserves several Oscars.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT ENTIRELY 'SWEET' NOTHINGS, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Toilet Spray certainly masks the odours emanating from the toilet bowl when applied after each use and flush. However, whilst the odour coming from it is preferable to what preceded it, I cannot profess to really like the fragrance produced as it has a slightly 'sour' acidic twang to it.

Better than the alternative I suppose.

I have quite a large collection of reading glasses and like to have brightly coloured Lanyard Straps and these certainly fit the bill being a vivid pink. Additionally they are fixed to the glasses with quite strong easily adjustable clear plastic loops unlike many strap fittings out there.

A very good price with super-speedy delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars DID IT HAVE TO END?, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Miniaturist (Hardcover)
This review of Jessie Burton's "The Miniaturist", is based on comments received from my wife.

Over the years she has read hundreds of novels of all genres but mainly crime and historical sagas, and reports that this book was one of the best novels she had ever read, and I can testify to its 'un-put-downable' qualities as most nights I had to go to sleep with the bedroom lights on, because she could not bring herself to stop reading. She said she was very sorry when the end was reached as she wanted it to go on forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars LIGHT OF MY LIFE, 21 Feb. 2015

I didn't want to spend a lot on a Hobby Desk Adjustable Lamp, as it was not going to get constant use so this product fitted the bill and it seems to be reasonably well made for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars BY ROYAL APPOINTMENT, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Granddaughter loved these Queen Elsa Princess Anna Magic Wand and Glove Set and spent most of christmas day 'floating' around regally looking like a cross between Lady Gaga and Lady Muck bestowing regal platitudes on her peasants.

She enjoyed the gift but we found the price a tad a the high side for what it would have cost to manufacture.

5.0 out of 5 stars TIDINESS REIGNS!, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased as a christmas present for a very keen Jigsaw adherent, but fastidiously tidy Niece, who eschews from ever leaving anything out before going to bed or leaving the house. She is delighted with this well designed and seemingly well made accessory which can be put behind the settee, and thus not causing intruders into her home whilst she is out to remark what a pigsty the place looks!

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful catcher of the dribs and drabs of the condiments ..., 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful catcher of the dribs and drabs of the condiments that hold on to the bottoms of the mills' without a 'catcher' such as this Mill Rest would go onto your table making a bit of a mess. Looks very good, if not a tad expensive for what it is viz a small piece of shaped wood.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ART OF MONEY THROWING, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We can get a man to the moon, and devise a multitude of clever, life influencing engineering, scientific, medical, electronic gadgets etc. but for many years we have searched in vain for Salt and Pepper Mills that actually worked efficiently. Having purchased quite a few over the years which proved to be ineffective, we had almost given up hope of finding the 'holy grail', but thought we'd give it one last shot and purchased the T & G CrushGrind Apollo Mill Set, and Hallelujah! we have struck gold at last as they do as they say, and efficiently and with minimal effort grind both salt and pepper in a most acceptable manner, are very easy to refill, and look good.

All of which proves the old adage "If at first you don't succeed, keep throwing your money at it and it will!"
