5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction for Earth history and functioning, 5 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Earth - The Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
When I bought it, I was questioning is it really my interest but I decided to risk. I'm glad that this risk was worth and even though the subject of the doc is not my major interest, it was narrated so well and put together so interestingly that I couldn't stop watching it. What is good, it explains the Earth processes simple and logical that it could be a part of geography classes, providing illustrative materials to remember it better. It is also astonishing which places the narrator Dr. I. Stewart visits from the most claustrophobic wholes in the Earth to living fire storm and up to high skies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great work by the great old man!, 5 Jan. 2012

This review is from: Flying Monsters [DVD] (DVD)
It was really a pleasant surprise to see this documentary. I'm a big fan of D. Attenborough and it is great to see that despite his age he continues to implement new techniques and is able to follow the hard path of recording. The movie is great combination of computer work and real life, that is mixed so well that it makes pterosaurs to live again and it gives a good overview how these animals once upon a time lived. Watching this DVD one wants that it never ends.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice, funny and touching story, 4 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two fathers and one boy, it is an interesting story how a young boy helps to come out an earlier sportsman. All this story is put into a optimistic context and provides several humorous moments. At the same time it also brings a touching story of getting closer of two persons who stand on different polars in their life. Nice entertainment but it is not overload by strong and powerful emotions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A growing up story with good music, 4 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: C.R.A.Z.Y. [DVD] (DVD)
It is a complex story of a family where the praised son becomes a stigmatised boy... The movie is very emotional and shows well a struggle a young gay man. The movie depicts well the impact of patriarchal values and norms on gay people. However, it also shows the pain that parents feel about their children and the complexity of clash of heterenormative society and queer world. It is a good movie, well done and offers a deep insight of a young persons struggle in the context of a family. In addition, movie is full of good music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good emotional story with Almadovarian kinks;), 4 Jan. 2010
This review is from: High Heels [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This movie combines an early Almadovar's punk comedy stile with already later deeper Almadovar's drama. It is a story of longing for love, jealousy, and forgiving. These strong emotions form a beautiful backbone for crazy chasing comedy that enables to express the feelings above. I think that this movie offers for everybody something. And of course, a beautiful song 'Piensa En Mi' is on top for this movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Presents a neglected aspect of Nazi crimes, 27 Jun. 2009
This review is from: A Love To Hide [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
It is very interesting movie, well done, great plot and brings light on the issue that has been neglected for long time - Nazi crimes against LGBT people. It narrates a sensitive story about a young French gay man who is struggling with family business and tries to hide its gay life for the family members. However, attack against him comes from the unexpected source. It depicts gay life during the WW2 in France very well and opens the tragedy that those people and their beloved and family had to suffer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, touching and funny!, 27 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Touch Of Pink [DVD] (DVD)
It is a good movie about a Moslem gay guy coming out for his family... lot of funny moments that make you lough but it is not regular gay comedy but it has a serious plot as well. Love will win all! If you have seen Mambo Italiano then it has some similarities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well personalised history, 2 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This movie is well done and gives a good overview of the time period. It is not fully authentic to the historical events but even though it constructs nice understanding of the historical period. I think that the main value of this movie is the narration of a personal struggle that the people of that time had. It creates good understanding and at the same time it is also very touching story about key persons of English history. I recommend it!
