4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a rainy day, 18 Aug 2008
Another relatively unknown world war 2 film staring David Attenborough as an aspiring pilot, who unfortunately doesn't quite make the grade and instead becomes a navigator. The film follows all the training to the ultimate first mission on a raid to Berlin.
While not a classic as such in the way of Dambusters or Angels One Five, its certainly well worthy of a place in a Black & White WW2 film library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic, 18 Dec 2007
This review is from: Angels One Five [DVD] [1952] (DVD)
I love the British black and white war movies, Dambusters, Wooden Horse, etc and this is another classic. Angels One Five is set during the Battle of Britain and follows the arrival of a new pilot at a squadron.
Mixing the grim realties of war with the whit and humour that I love about these films, and with classic lines such as:
" They've really caught us with both pairs of trousers at the cleaners this time!"
Its a must have for your B&W WW2 collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price for a great game, 2 Feb 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Easy to use and very addictive.

Amazing for the price, doesn't have as many features as the newer games (2006 & 07), but for the price it is excellent, if your not sure on football manager games, try this as the price is easily affordable and you will not be disappointed.

This game is extremely user friendly as it's very easy to navigate round and is very in depth without being complicated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 31 Jan 2007
The series follows NASA during the Apollo moon-landing programme; each episode focuses on a different aspect, designing the spacecraft, training and the missions themselves. There is also an episode that focuses on the wives of the astronauts, which I thought, was a good idea.

The missions are all well done in the same quality as Apollo 13 movie.

Apollo 12 is my favourite in the "Is that all there is" episode but all are very good.

The extra DVD is good with the documentary of the making of the series although I would have liked it to be longer.

In short, if you liked Apollo 13 you will like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Black & White WW2 film, 31 Jan 2007
This review is from: The Way Ahead [DVD] (DVD)
This movie follows the call up and training of various men, called up to fight in WW2.

It's interesting to see the men from different backgrounds, (the important business man, the travel agent and the labourer) all get lumbered into the same boat.

The men are portrayed well, not heroes nor idiots, just ordinary men.

They grumble and complain about how they are being treated unfairly, being shouted at and made to do pointless exercises. As the film goes on, you see the men bond before being shipped off to combat, this too is well done with the combat scenes being so understated as to be believable.

This film was used at Sandhurst for many years to help train new officers.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing, 16 May 2006
An excellent little war movie, made during the war its about a crew of a Wellington Bomber that gets shot down while on a bombing raid.

It follows the crew as they travel with the help of the resistance across enemy occupied territory and try to get back to blighty.

If you like films like the Dambusters, Wooden Horse and Angels One Five you'll like this.
