Legend of Rita [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Legend of Rita [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Offered by RAREWAVES USA
Price: £16.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining even if you are not interested in 1970's political events, 18 Feb. 2015
A slightly sideways take on the German terrorism of the 1970's, which mainly follows the events of the eponymous Rita after she goes into hiding in east Germany. It changes the names and some events of RAF members, but anyone with a slight interest in the organisation will spot the references. Despite the serious subject matter it manages to be a hugely entertaining movie, the actress playing Rita really makes the film and the story is intelligent, but still moves at a good pace. It also (refreshingly) does not take sides, showing the good and bad of taking your beliefs to such an extreme conclusion, even the east German secret service officers who are normally portrayed as one dimensional bad guys in western movies are very human and show frustration with the system that they are a part of. Well worth a watch whether you are interested in the era or not, as the performances and story are so strong.

This type of movie is very hit or miss, but this one is a winner of a guilty pleasure movie. Well cast and even stands up to repeat viewings

Funny and clever if even if you aren't stoned. Anna Faris plays it perfectly in yet another guilty pleasure movie.

This review is from: SSX (PS3) (Video Game)
Fun with impressive graphics, but something is missing from the usual SSX game play. Suffers from overlong (totally unrealistic) courses and an annoying rewind button

5.0 out of 5 stars The Swimmer Blu Ray edition, 6 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I watch this film about once a year and it gets me everytime. Multi layered and original, you can take it as a straight up 'Tales of the Unexpected' style tale or a whole life story set in an afternoon. Taking place amongst wealthy americans in the 1960's and the film stock colouring all just seem to add to the atmosphere (although Some of the filming techniques are very of it's time). The extras are probably only for fans of the film, old LA types talking about production is a bit repetitive, but the revelations about the troubled shoot are interesting and actually explain some of its very few flaws. Also the original narrated short story on which it is based is a nice addition. Wonderful and melancholic.

This review is from: Sleep Games (Audio CD)
Great haunting electronica, from the label that does it so well. Pretty consistent, if you are a fan of this sort of thing definitely worth buying as it is one of the better examples of the genre. Plug those headphones in, spark up and lie back..............

5.0 out of 5 stars Best new band I've heard in while, 20 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cursing The Sea (Audio CD)
Heard a track on 6 music, so gave the album a go and glad I did. I can't understand why this band haven't got more exposure, their style of gothic jangle pop may have obvious influences, but they have the tunes to pull it off. If there was any justice, over exposed mediocre indie acts (I'm looking at you Haim) would be struggling and these girls would be selling out arenas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining dark mystery, 20 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Prisoners [DVD] (DVD)
Missed this on its release as I thought the inclusion of Hugh Jackman meant it would be a worthy drama playing on parents worst fears, but it is in fact a hugely entertaining thriller. In an age were everything is described as 'dark' this film manages to be just that, its creepy and pulls off the difficult balance of being disturbing, without unnecessary gratuitousness (the imagining of what is suggested always stays with you longer). The story twists and turns, but refreshingly doesn't patronise the viewer, keeps within the realms of plausibility and although I've read other reviewers that said it had loose ends, it all seemed to tie up nicely to me. It reminded me of Gone baby gone and Zodiac, while it lacks the true story clout of the latter, if you are a fan of those movies, you should certainly give Prisoners a try.

Ideal for my use (cycling). Fairly thin, but allows you to breath while exercising and just keeps the wind of your face. If using for skiing and motorbiking you would probably need a thicker version. Great for the price.
