Death Comes to Pemberley [DVD]
Death Comes to Pemberley [DVD]
Dvd ~ Matthew Rhys
Price: £7.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 14 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As we never see UK TV we like to have a few DVD's in our collection mainly to watch when we do not have time to watch a full feature length film. We read a review in a magazine which is why we purchased it.
This was 3 episodes each an hour long and we found them most enjoyable. It was a pity it was not in surround sound though.

We read about this film in a magazine review and thought it may be quite good.Having remembered this case we found it very interesting and seemed authentic. The production and acting was very good although we are not critics, we just enjoy a good film.

After reading a friends copy of The Leopard which we both enjoyed we decided to buy The Snowman. It was a compulsive read and I would buy other Jo Nesbo books in future

4.0 out of 5 stars Good classic, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Young Lions [DVD] (DVD)
Enjoyed it so much didn't realize we were watching a black and white film. The picture quality was remarkable, forget colour and blu ray its the story that matters. The story was good showing the human side of what happened in those dark years. Marlon Brando played a fantastic part as a German officer. Our only small complaint was it went on a bit too long, could have been a little shorter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to hear some favorites in English, 24 Dec 2012

This review is from: Best of / Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
We have the original Italian version but enjoyed hearing many of our old favorites in English.
Some tracks were in the original language which may disappoint some people.
If you like Zucchero and are English speaking we can recommend.

This review is from: Cuban Sessions (Audio CD)
This is up to Zucchero's high standard.
There were a few tracks of his old numbers but with a Cuban feel.
Very enjoyable album

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 15 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Whitechapel Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I bought the whole series on the recommendation of a friend in England. Watched series 1 and found it very good with good subtitles, but when trying to watch series 2 found that there were no subtitles. As my husband is hard of hearing and living in Greece we tend to watch many films outdoors where we have an amount of traffic noise. Subtitles are a must. We could not watch so are unable to give a good review. To our further disappointment we notice series 3 is also without subtitles. We will have to try and watch in the winter when we move indoors. It would have been helpful if the product description stated if it had subtitles or not

5.0 out of 5 stars Screen replacement, 17 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After struggleing with a tripod screen for a few years we decided to look for a pull up screen as we could not accommadat a wall mounted screen. We could not find any pull up screens in Greece, nor could we find any screen supplyers willing to despatch to Greece. Whilst in England we visited Severn Oaks who surgested screens at quite a high price but could not inform us the cost of despatch to Greece. They took our mobile phone number and promised to phone us in a couple of days. We waited 10 days and did not receive a call from them. On our return to Greece we went on to the Amazon web site and spotted this model at a much lower price than we had been quoted for other models in England. Delivery was a little slow as the package got delayed in Athens possably because of industrial action. On arrival by courier it was well packed and in excellant condition. On using for the first time we found it easy to errect and gave a perfect picture. The only problem we find is not with the screen itself but the fact that we have to errect it in front of our equipment which makes it impossable to use the remote control as the signal will not pass through the bottom of the screen. Our solution was to place the screen on blocks and aiming the remote control underneath the screen. This is not the best solution as we cannot read the display on the equipment. All in all this is an excellent product at an excellant price and we can fully reccomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking, 25 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We saw part of this film on Greek TV and it looked interesting but was in Greek and French language. We decided to try to find a DVD of this film with English subtitles. When we purchased it we thought it was expensive but on watching felt it was worth every penny.
If you don't have a good command of Greek or French the subtitles are very useful and together with the DVD was written instructions from the supplier advising how to get them.
It is about illegal imigrants trying to get into western Europe. It was very well produced and gave an insite into the situation these people face which unfortunatly we witness here every day. The lead actor played a fantastic part and really brought the story to life, but what a sad ending.
We will watch many times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching, 25 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Ghost [DVD] (DVD)
We read the book and enjoyed it very much. We bought the DVD not expecting it to follow the book as many movies condense the story ommitting many of the important details therefore changing, usually not for the better, the details. This followed the book closely and was equally enjoyable. We can fully recommend.
