1.0 out of 5 stars Customer Support?, 13 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Going Back Home (Audio CD)
As Amazon doesn`t appear to have any Customer Support numbers I` will post my grievance here. I purchased this item on 26 th October but ddidn`t play it for some time because I was in hospital. When I did play it the first track is faulty and jumps all over the place. I`ve tried 4 different players and had the same results. Amazon state that I`m out of time for a product return, but they are ignoring the law that says a product must be fit for purpose. I expect a response to this post ASAP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arnie meets the Amish?, 30 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Looper [DVD] (DVD)
If you crossed "Terminator" with "Sin City" and threw in a good helping of "Witness" you could well come up with this movie. Not sure I always understood what was going on but I enjoyed the ride.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not all that bad., 26 Oct. 2014
This review is from: City Rats [DVD] (DVD)
Despite the cover art this is not a Gangster film, and only one of the four stories has any connection with crime.
Although it is slow in parts all four stories are quite interesting.
There are worse ways to fill in a couple of hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Confusion, 8 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Collected (Audio CD)
This is undoubtedly the best collection of J J Cale to come out so far, but there are other sets with very similar titles. "The J J Cale Collection" is also a triple CD set but only runs to 36 tracks and it has the same cover as the earlier double disc collection " Anywhere the wind blows". And there are previous issues with titles such as "Classic Collection". Still almost everything by Mr Cale is fantastic, but you may end up with a lot of duplicated tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ugandan Music Kicks ...who knew, 20 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Speed Controller (MP3 Download)
First heard this on "The Great East African Trip" Cd but didn`t want to buy the double disc set for one track. Then heard it again in the main store at Sukuza Camp in the Kruger and decided a download was the way to go.
It just gets inside your head and won`t let go.

4.0 out of 5 stars Epic Science Fiction, 26 Aug. 2012
This film takes elements of Bladerunner, Terminator, Matrix, 2001,and melds them all together. It is at times hard to follow the story as the film mixes time-lines,styles and genres like nothing I`ve ever seen.It uses Live Action, Anime, and CGI to mind blowing effect.
I`m not sure if I fully understood it but one minor point is that "Death" is just an indicator of the need for more resources to go into medical research.
Enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Propaganda, 22 July 2012
I just wish I`d read some of these reviews before I wasted my money on this piece of propaganda.
Very lengthy scenes of Generals / Politicians rousing their troops / people with outrageous tosh before sending them off to be mown down as they mouth revolutionary slogans.
No wonder the Japanese overan the Chinese a few years later; the Communists,the Nationalists and the Warlords were intent on destroying each other even when they were on the same side.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, 22 July 2012
This review is from: The Sicilian [DVD] [1987] (DVD)
On the plus side Sicily looks beatiful.
On the minus side, everything else. Most of the acting is wooden at best, the story is confused and bears little relationship to actual events. The dialogue is risible and frankly I ran out of patience half way through.
One day Salvatore Giuliano`s story will make a great film....this isn`t it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cemetry Where?, 8 July 2012
This is a decent film and very funny in parts; it reminded me of the TV series "Heartbeat" with extra swearing and dirty jokes.
But it says it is set in Reading 1973 (Cemetry Junction is part of Reading, just east of the City Centre) so when was Reading or Cemetry Junction transformed into a Cotswold market town?
The Cemetry Junction I knew in the early 70s was funky, urban and full of skinheads.
