Tennison (Tennison 1)
Tennison (Tennison 1)
Price: £3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Lacklustre but reasonably enjoyable, 22 Oct. 2015
A bit of a let down, really. While the police procedural element is interesting and it was good finding out how Tennison started her career, the story is rather ho-hum. There are essentially two stories in play here. The main one is the murder of a prostitute and the second is a bank robbery. However, the murder is solved well before the end of the book and then the rest is given over to the rather dull bank robbery story, which reads a bit like a rejected story from the early 80s tv series the Gentle Touch. Though I think Lynda La Plante has undoubtedly created some wonderful characters and tv dramas, this is a rather lacklustre book that is quite entertaining but that's about it.


Dynasty: Season 7 [DVD] [1986]
Dynasty: Season 7 [DVD] [1986]
Dvd ~ John Forsythe
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Same old but worse..., 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the best season of Dynasty. Many of the season's guest characters are poorly written and just plain dull, like Adam's squeeze played by Leann Hunley and Ben Charrington, played by Christopher Cazenove pretty much disappears this season. Even when Krystle gets her baby kidnapped it's one big yawn.


Jaws (Blu-ray + Digital Copy + UV Copy)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 30 May 2014

I read a lot of reviews before I purchased the blu ray of Jaws because I already have the dvd and wondered how much better it would be. If you love this film and have a blu ray, I would recommend you buy it. The picture and sound is stunning. John Williams score is tremendous. Another reviewer somewhere claimed it was like sitting in the centre of a full orchestra and they were right. If
you have surround sound, it will blow you away.

This review is from: Le Mans [Blu-ray] [1971] (Blu-ray)
I have never seen Le Mans on dvd so cannot hold it up againt the blu ray edition but I thought the quality was very good both picture and sound. The film has plenty of racing action and a limited amount of dialogue; somehow this does not hamper the film as events are self evident and the acting proficient enough so that lots of dialogue is not really necessary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A Good quality player with the ability to play multi-region dvds and European Blu-rays (But not Canadian or US blu-rays). Two things that are slightly annoying is that it is a little slow in getting going. You have to wait for it to finish its startup before you can open the disc drawer. But the biggest handicap for me was that in order to set-up the smart tv element, you must purchase a specific dongle to attach to the USB that costs an additional £40. This is not clear when purchasing and should really come in the box as part of the price. Apart from that, it works fine and looks smart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and despairing side of the Generation of Love., 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manson (Kindle Edition)
I knew nothing about Charles Manson when I downloaded this book. By the end, however, I understood (or believed I did) far more about how a persuasive trickster can seduce people into killing without them even realising it. I felt as if I had been transported to a place in time when the infamous Summer of Love was turned into a living nightmare by a group of hippies who lost their hearts to a psychopathic drifter. This book is fantastic. I need, happily, to never read about this man again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Memories, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I watched this growing up and re-visiting these characters and stories is a relaxing way of spending my Sunday afternoon. Sure, it is a kids show and it's dated; the picture isn't great either but I defy you not to get hooked. It is a bit like Little House on the Prairie with edge (of sorts).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite at the top., 26 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great casting saves this from being just another luke warm itv comedy. Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Tracey Ullman, Ruby Wax and, of course, Joan Greenwood, make this ridiculous 'Young Ones' knock-off into something you will want to see again. 3 stars because of poor synching of the soundtrack, four otherwise.

3.0 out of 5 stars quality diabolical, 20 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just started watching ep 2 and the main thing that stands out is just how terrible the picture quality of this dvd is. I have never liked the double sided disc because it has double the chance of being damaged, scratched and marked. It is a cheap alternative and think warners have just thought about the bottom line and not about the fans of the show. I think Dallas is great and cannot comment on the season as a whole because I have yet to watch it! I will do that now.

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaiing but all the same, 16 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Charlie's Angels is so formulaic that you get to a point where you think you have seen the story before but you haven't. Enough said. Entertaining in small doses.
