5.0 out of 5 stars bit of this bit of that, 12 May 2014
This review is from: Pompeii [DVD] (DVD)
The opening shows a British village under attack and family wiped out(Conan)
By the dastardly Romans .one of the survivors is sold in to slavery
And trained to be one of the best(gladiator) taken to Pompeii to fight in
The arena their .the gladiator meets the citys leaders daughter and they fall
In love, but an upset to the Apple cart being a senior Roman senator
Who by the way is the general responsible for wiping out the British village
The Pompeii stage games in honour of the VIP, in
the meanwhile Vesuvius starts to stir
Only the city leader and gladiator boss realize there's
something very wrong, the city boss
Who needs a Roman influx of cash to up grade
his city keeps his mouth shut.and the gladiator
Boss does the only sane thing and try to sneak away before all hell
Breaks loose,while the celt gladiator has a
show down in the arena ,our girl Vesuvius blows
Her top ,and disaster engulfs the city in the vein of 2012. So good so far
After rescuing the city bosses daughter
they try to flee the city,the gladiator boss meets
His watery demise and the senior senator
gets his come uppence. The star of the show. Is the
Volcano her selfl..in the UK this'd film is rated 12
So no ,sex,swearing,blood Gore etc
Effects are good,the length of the film is about right
The acting and I would point the finger at kieffer Sutherland
Is abysmal . Some of the plots like in sci-fi have been
're used over and over again as if producers are rapidly
Running out of ideas

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant bargain, 6 May 2014
Sink the bismarck
Very good war film , through this film I was fascinated with the hood , Although there are
Some serious factual errors, namely
Admiral lutgens was never a Nazi as seen in this film,far from it he discouraged
Any Nazism within his command,

He also didn't want to fight the hood and the Prince of Wales, it was the bismarck s captain
Who forced the issue.

There was no captain Sheppard organising the search for bismarck
No British destroyer was sunk in the real life chase.

Apart from that it was a really good film

The enemy below

Again very good Robert mitchum played the captain of an American destroyer
Hunting a u-boat , seen from both points of view the American captain who lost
His wife earlier in the war when the ship they were traveling on was sunk by a u- boat
and the german captain tired and sick of the war who already lost 2 sons fighting
For the fatherland. .
A bit of trivia. The plot was also used in a star trek episode
Balance of terror,where the enterprise hunts down a romulan warship

3.0 out of 5 stars siege of peking, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plot.
Charlton Heston plays an American marine major
Sent to relieve the outgoing detail at the American
Embassy. Just prior to the boxer rebellion. The film
Shows the the intrigue of the Chinese court and you have
To sympathise with the Chinese ,since the west want it for them
Selves the film gets bogged down with a love interest between
The major and a disgraced Russian countless. David given
Plays the part of the British ambassador who takes control as the leader
Of the political faction ,but amazingly the senior military
Commander is a Japanese, due to his rank of colonel against Heston rank of
Major ,a say amazingly because the Japanese colonel is hardly seen during the
Film . Although is a multinational force defending
The delegation district it's obviously the Americans who take the credit.I imagine
This was a summer block buster at the time . It could have been better

There is no subtitles in this film which is disappointing
And there are a couple of extra on the disc

Apart from the love twist ,you have the young Chinese girl who Bob's
Up and down looking totally lost . If you like a good action film then you
Will like it. It's odd in one aspect because the good guys if you think about
Are the Chinese ,and the bad guys are the westerners who are taking over
China hmm thought provoking

5.0 out of 5 stars exellent, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tired knight is sent to be lord of the manor in Normandy
by his duke, William of Ghent.(I'm not sure if this would be our
William the 1st) the knight and his entourage take control of the area
And try to keep the peace with the peasants whilst fighting the frisians.along
The story line the knight falls in love with a local girl and after being obsessed
Decides to resurrect an old custom where the the Lord can sleep with
A bride on her wedding night(seen this before in braveheart) and the girl
Would leave in the morning,except the girl doesn't want to leave him. The peasants
Thinking that the Lord has reneged on his word , throw in their lot with the frisians
And attack the keep where the Lord stays. The knights brother manages to get out
To fetch help. While the knight and his dwindling force take on the frisians . His brother
Returns in the nick of time to the Lord's relief only to find out that his brother
Has betrayed him to the duke, the duke relieves the knight of his power and hands
It to his treacherous brother. In a brief fight the knight kills his brother and leaves
The keep so he can explain his actions to his duke. Fearing the worst the knight
Urges his lover to flee , and there the story ends

This film breaks ranks with other medieval films where the knights live in luxury
And the such ,it's a gritty no holds barred type of film . Most noticeable the knight
Who has been for years fighting in various wars, just wants peace.

It's hinted that the village is based in England , I can assure you it's not
But some area of france .

This was one of the great works by the director of the original
Planet of the apes ,and Charlton Heston had no hesitation taking the role
As the knight, Richard boon plays bors his grizzled man at arms.

Excellent film, great blue ray transfer

5.0 out of 5 stars very good, 2 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sink the Bismarck [DVD] (DVD)
I have always been fascinated with the battle of the Denmark strait
more importantly the hood , tedd Briggs who sadly passed a way a couple
Of years ago , who often talked about the last minutes of his ships life.
Through the entire war the navy lost more men in this single sinking than any
Other ship . Over 1400 were lost on the hood, dundas,tilburn and Briggs
Sole survivors. The bismarck lost around 2000 of her crew .......

I would highly recommend this dvd to any one interested in this battle

5.0 out of 5 stars eclipses the first part, 14 April 2014
I can't fail but be impressed by the quality of This film and like
Others was bemused by a trilogy, after seeing this I can understand
Why .the scenery ,cgi and soundtrack is amazing . Not only
that I couldn't take my eyes off it , I having 're -read the book
Because there's no need ,mr Jackson has kept to it but also
Stretched out the plot ,amazing pity it didn't get an oscar
