5.0 out of 5 stars superb british movie not to be missed, 7 Jan. 2011
saw this back in 2004 and thought it was stunning. stumbled across it on here last year and bought it there and then. this film is a british stunner. better than all the over top british craped we have been given lately like 4,3,2,1 and shank. this is true british acting allbeit on a low budget but it just proves you dont need millions to make a good movie!

1.0 out of 5 stars stupid films, 7 Jan. 2011
this is just yet more trash that shouldnt be on dvd. both films are full of soft porn that only puts a dampner on things in my view. the acting in every scene is stupid and the sex shown is basically just a sterotype of gay lifestyle n the extreame, these films are none sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars a very very very good film, 6 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Shank [DVD] [2008] [2009] (DVD)
i was a little sceptical about this film but having now watched it many times since summer 2010, i absolutely love it.

i always have a problem with gang related films weather gay or straight as i think most of the time they are too far fetched and misleading.

i found this to be pretty much on the money in terms of how a gang can operate and the mentality of a gang and the repercussions of not following the gang and being different.

i think the makers of this film really did there homework on all aspects from the gang, to meeting strangers for sex and then lashing out afterwards as he couldnt deal with it, to hiding it, dealing with the pressures of having a relationship but not being out. it has it all.

i wouldnt say this film is overly violent and i think the violence of the gang had to be shown in order to achieve the goal of the film. i do disagree with the rape scene near the end. i think it was a pointless scene that didnt really serve any purpose. i just found it a little hard to place in the film and also scene after the rape where he was in the bath with his boyfriend and the man (teacher) who he met for sex and then attacked afterwards washing him.

but regardless of the above this is a stunning film that a lot of young gay men will and can relate to. i am so proud of this british film and im so glad the british made it.

so many gay films are poorly written, acted and directed and i have watched and thrown away so many. this is one i will watch again and again.

1.0 out of 5 stars disgusting!!!, 6 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Sugar [DVD] (DVD)
i thought this would be a reasonable film with a reasonable plot. reading the reviews ect i thought this would be an american version of the british gay film shank that was filmed in bristol.

this film is disgusting and too far fetched. for a start i dont know any 12 year old girl that would give a bottle of vodka and a joint to an older brother and tell him to get sex.

if this had a plot it could be classed as porno with a plot but it hasnt. its mainly about sex and has no real meaning of gay life or even a young gay man coming out.

who ever made this film has one sick twisted mind and it shouldnt be on dvd. at best the acting is poor.

this is a sterotype film based on a false impression of gay life.

my copy is going in the bin. there is just simply no need for this trashy film.

5.0 out of 5 stars very very nice, 31 Dec. 2010
to cut a log story short i was going to purchase this set a few months ago but the 3d sets got in the way of that and i was even going to get the 3d version of this. this is my 3rd brand new set in 2 weeks as all the others where flawed.

i am a plasma man and always have been, however after watching a lcd for a week and then bringing this home, it was a little disapointing as lcd are brighter than plasma. however, once back in the plasma seat, this set is amazing and it has reminded me why i am a plasma man.

some of the detail on this set is simply stunning! i cannot write anymore than already written but this set deserves the effort of a review.

yes, there is a buzz BUT it is no where near as bad as the 3d plasma i had that i could hear very clearly 12 feet away with volume up! all plasmas' buzz to some degree.

when all the 3d problems have been ironed out i will purchase the 3d version of this set and put this in the bedroom!

you must be aware tho that this set does require you to be a minimum of 8ft away to get the full pleasure of watching. some sets you can get away with being closer but this does need that distance. i had a cheaper 42 inch set that was not full hd and it was stunning at a much shorter distance. this however, can be very roppy and fuzzing if closer than 8ft. once you move that extra space (10ft id say for th best) the pic quality is stunning and the best ive ever seen on a 42 inch screen.

the people seem roll out of the screen almost. you wont go far wrong with this set providing your far enough away from it and have it set up properly.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but if your expecting the best like reviews state then dont, 27 Dec. 2010
3d has undoubtly let a nasty taste in my mouth full stop.

i am on my secound 3dtv from samsung. first was the plasma c680 which devoloped faults on day one and now this set which has also developed problems.

for a start i dont like lcd tv and havent owned one for 4 years and that was a samsung one. i got this has it had good reviews and the better detail on long shots over rival plasma 3dtv's about at the moment.

after 5 days i have already had ebough of this tv. to start with it was bright and vibrant and better than i was watching on the faulty c680. however after watching this set it does have serious issues that should not be pressent on a 2010 tv. even more so when it costs 700 quid. you could easily pick up a lcd set of the same size and quality for around 400 quid. therefore why buy one for 700 when it is plagued with faults just cos it has 3d.

i think people need to get over the fact that 3dtv is now in our living rooms and look at the overall performance of the set rather than just 3d as we watch more norma than 3d tv.

overall the set perfornmed better than the c680 and to start with seriously impressed me, however the c680 was faulty. when atching music chanels or anything with flashing lights, the lights look static and false. 3d had much less crosstalk than i thought it would an was much better than the c680 however watching avatar 3d on xmas eve the set performed badly. this could be sky's signal but its down to the tv set when it comes to crosstalk.

this set also has decided that it will switch itself off and on after 3-4 hours of use and gradually becoming more frequent when watched further. 6 times is the most in one session.

theres no doubt that this set has developed faults and is therefore being put back in its box and going back.

for someone who has upgraded from a crt set or an early model of lcd then i can see how this would be good. but having having both lcd and plasma since they first came out i can honestly say (EVEN WITH THE 3D FEATURE) its a step back in terms of what can be acheived on a non 3d set.

3 stars is not bad, its average and thats exactly what the set is AVERAGE.

from now on im gonna leave samsung well a lone as its costing me more money each week i have one.

2.0 out of 5 stars ok for a freebie, 14 Dec. 2010
this 3d blu ray player is not the best. its tinny, looks cheap and the play back quality isnt brilliant.

i purchased this from someone who got it in a 3d tv deal for free. as a freebie its ok and its a starting point for 3d. it is easy to set up and use.

the blu ray only version is about 100 in the shops, this is 170-180 to go and buy it and around 130 from here. i would not recomend paying this kind of cash for this.

if i had more time and was not wanting it asap i would have ordered one from here but a better quality one.

having said that, the internet on this player is better than my upto date panny blu ray cinema system.
