Nice product. Lack of a handle is slightly annoying. Ideal for hand luggage on budget airlines.

This review is from: The Lady in the Van (DVD)
I should stress that my wife enjoyed this film much more than I did. The end was touching but generally I found the title character to be very irksome. I certainly wouldn't want her parked outside my house. I have always found Alan Bennett to be very effected and the actor playing him here certainly did an all too accurate impersonation. Still, I guess I should be grateful that very English films like this still get made and it was certainly a change from endless super hero nonsense.

No eyelets (you have to make your own) and far too elasticated. Looks good but that's about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it., 21 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Us (Paperback)
David Nicholls writes such readable books and this is no exception. Funny and yet painful at times, there are so many scenarios to identify with. One sequence, involving a quiz night, is so true to life. Very enjoyable: I await the film version.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic slow burn., 17 Jan. 2016
I read 117 pages of this before putting it aside and reading something else. Nothing much had happened by the time I temporarily gave up but once I resumed it all kicked off. The plot then became pretty fast and furious, if improbable at times, but it made for an absorbing read. I'm now about to start the next in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange little film., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 45 Years (DVD)
I think my wife and I expected more from this, given all the hype and 5 star reviews. It definitely looks like a film that's been made for T.V. and then released theatrically. It's a very English story, which is always nice, and the acting is superb, of course. However, it didn't really do it for us - perhaps we expected too much?

3.0 out of 5 stars Hard going., 5 Jan. 2016

This review is from: A Slow Death (Kindle Edition)
I found this quite hard going, despite the setting and an interesting main character. I've really enjoyed the John Carlisle books but somehow I can't see this turning into a similarly successful series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic., 5 Jan. 2016

This is quite possibly the greatest political thriller of all time. Great performances, terrific direction and the nightmare brain-washing sequences are still brilliant. However, I can't say I noticed any additional benefit from the blu ray transer. My old SD dvd seems just as good. A classic all the same.


The House of Redgrave: The Lives of a Theatrical Dynasty

4.0 out of 5 stars What a family!, 4 Jan. 2016
Whilst I agree with certain other reviewers, who complain about a big chunk of this book being devoted to Tony Richardson, this didn't spoil it at all for me. My word, what a family the Redgraves were, especially Sir Michael - not sure I'll ever be able to watch The Browning Version quite so comfortably again. Only Lynn seemed vaguely normal, while Corin and Vanessa were clearly unbalanced about their political views.
All in all a darn good read.

I think I expected this to be more like the T.V. version but it was very tame by comparison. Still an interesting read though.
