The Miracle Of Bern
The Miracle Of Bern
Dvd
Offered by Lovefilm UK Limited
Price: £0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars German World Cup success in 1954, 15 Sep 2014
This review is from: The Miracle Of Bern (DVD)
Every once in a while you find a little gem of a film that has hiding from general view. This is one.
Football mad youngster Matthias plays with his ragged friends on a bombsite in the industrial Ruhr valley a decade after the war. His father has been a prisoner in Russia for 11 years and his mother meanwhile has desperately been keeping the family together running a local bar.but you can see the roots of the new Germany and its coming economic prosperity but also the divisiveness of East vs. West.
Matthias also knows one of the players in the fledgling German team that succeeds well enough to play for their country against champion Hungary in the World Cup in Switzerland in 1954.
Even if you know nothing about football, like I do, this is delightful little story, and will have you rooting for the teams and the goals.
Well acted by all, plenty of love, hope and lessons in patience, with a bit of redemption thrown in.
In German with English subtitles. Extras include clips of some of the early colour TV transmissions of some of the games.
Recommended.


Globe Trekker - Panama And Columbia
Globe Trekker - Panama And Columbia
Offered by Lovefilm UK Limited
Price: £0.00

3.0 out of 5 stars It's COLOMBIA and PANAMA, 9 Aug 2014
Part of the wide Globe trekker series (luckily this one not narrated by the generally annoying and unbelievable Ian Wright) but by Megan M. who seems to be more clearly enjoying the journey and bothering to speak the language.
First part is of Panama and does show some interesting features and photography to get a flavour of this part of Latin America
Second and shorter afterthought is a slightly superficial overview of Colombia (why is it that no one can SPELL this country correctly !!) across the border in SOUTH America and trying at the time of making to prove the region is reasonably safe to visit even for single female travellers.

My Degus practically snatch these little square baked biscuit-like treats from my hand. They absolutely adore them and come back begging for more. The Chinchilla loves them too, and the gerbils don't say no either. Small pack seems expensive around 2.99 £ for 350 grams but worth it for the pleasure it gives, and as a change from their usual pellets.


Armchair Thriller - Dead Man's Kit
Armchair Thriller - Dead Man's Kit
Dvd
Offered by Lovefilm UK Limited
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars from 1980 with good production values and interesting camera angles, 9 Aug 2014
Actually this is a credit-worthy thriller, from 1980 with good production values and interesting camera angles. The plot involves the mystery of the presumed death of the Master At Arms on a Navy ship returning from a Mediterranean exercise (who we see knocked over the head and thrown from the ship). A young Larry Lamb is unconvinced by the "official" Navy enquiry conclusion and investigates, opening up a bit of a Pandora's Box as he ropes in a shore-based WREN sweetheart, the lovely Cherie Lunghi.
The bouncy Mick Ford has a short part in the first few episodes. Craggy-faced Philip Locke plays a slightly sinister Naval Intelligence officer - or so he says - and the suspense manages to keep up so you aren't sure who anyone is.......
Wonderful for seeing old cars and 80s fashions that aren't too extreme. Give it a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 30 July 2014
This review is from: Moonfleet (DVD)
So-so DVD. I'm not usually moved to remark on poor discs but really feel the need to do so on this hunka ham.
The original script was probably good but the resultant production not quite so - this is a potentially good adventure yarn for adults or kiddies.
Winstone however mumbles all the way through this as if bored with the whole proceedings and the 'regional' accents are laughable. The sound is also muffled and there are NO subtitles to help out. WHY? Not even any extras on the disc - nothing at all ! Talk about cheap ! Thank goodness it was on Lovefilm. Would otherwise have felt I was ripped off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reasonably good, 28 Jun 2014
I need these specifically for a camera, and because I take pictures a lot I go through a lot of these.
Convenience of ordering this here on Amazon is getting it sent to you via post and I think I paid less than £5 although at time of writing this it is unavailable. In outside shops, IF YOU CAN FIND them (have had numerous abortive trips to town), costs about £5-8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems pretty comprehensive Quite pleased., 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This version for 3 PCs.
The toss-up was between Kaspersky which I had last year and this, both voted 2nd and 1st in reliability.
This seems to work pretty well, I don't fully understand most of this stuff but this visibly has strong internal security especially regarding banking and monetary transactions where you have to sign in to a Bitdefender pop up box separately.
Hardly any of those extraneous irritating pop-ups I used to have.
