Gold (1974) [Blu-ray]
Gold (1974) [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Roger Moore
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked Roger Moore classic, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gold (1974) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
An overlooked classic in my opinion. I remember seeing this at the cinema in the 70s in a Roger Moore double bill with The Man With The Golden Gun. For many years the film has been available on various very sub-standard public domain DVDs. This Blu-ray is a revelation as the picture quality is very good for a film released over 40 years ago. The film is a well executed thriller set in South Africa and passes a very enjoyable couple of hours. Very pleased to have added this to my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ryan`s Daughter - Spanish Blu-ray Import, 31 Mar. 2016

This review is from: La Hija de Ryan BD (Blu-ray)
Great film, great price & delivered in 4 days from ordering. Official Spanish release of title not yet available on Blu-ray in UK. Picture quality is great and a major improvement over the UK DVD release. No extras apart from a trailer but if you want a Blu-ray of this classic David Lean film then order with confidence, I`m certainly glad I did.

Price: £6.35

4.0 out of 5 stars Force 10 From Navarone - Italian Import, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Force 10 From Navarone is a guilty pleasure. It has always been unfavourably compared to it`s classic predecessor The Guns of Navarone. However, in my opinion there is much to enjoy and admire in this film. I have always liked this film since I viewed it at my local Odeon back in the 70s. I have had the DVD for many years and have been hoping a Blu-ray would be released in the UK. This version is an official Italian release from Sony. Naturally the packaging is in Italian but this is not an issue for me as it`s the film that`s important. The print used for this release is a UK English language version and it is very straightforward to select the English soundtrack. There are no extras on the disc but the picture quality is a step up from the DVD. Hopefully a special edition will be made available someday but until then this release will do nicely. The Blu-ray was dispatched from Switzerland and arrived in 4 days from placing my order.


Deadlier Than the Male [Blu-ray]
Deadlier Than the Male [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Richard Johnson
Price: £9.70

4.0 out of 5 stars Richard Johnson at his suave best in this 60s spy romp, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quirky 1960s `Bond` style spy thriller. It`s not a patch on a Connery Bond picture but very entertaining romp none the less. Surprisingly violent for the time in which this was made it was issued an `X` certificate (18) but quite mild now by modern standards. The late Richard Johnson is at his suave best in this adventure and overall the film has very good production values. The picture quality on this Blu-ray is outstanding for a film made 50 years ago and the soundtrack whilst mono still packs quite a punch. If you enjoy 60s films in general and spy thrillers in particular I`m sure this film will not disappoint.

Elvis at the Movies [DVD]
Dvd ~ Elvis Presley
Offered by Magic Movies Ltd
Price: £45.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis` Paramount Pictures in one convenient box, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis at the Movies [DVD] (DVD)
Elvis Presley movies are probably only appreciated by Elvis fans and to be fair not all his films were great or essential viewing, something Elvis himself acknowledged in the 1960s and was determined to get back to live performing and recording quality songs. Having said that for those who grew up in the 60s in the UK this was the only way to see our hero. The movies in this box set are those Elvis made for Hal Wallis at Paramount Pictures. The picture quality is fairly good given the age of the films but don`t expect 2015 standard. Some film damage is present on the prints used but I don`t think this is too much of an issue. If you are looking for a fairly cheap way to buy Elvis` Paramount Pictures films then this box set will do nicely.

The films included in this box are:
King Creole *****
G.I. Blues *****
Blue Hawaii ****
Girls! Girls! Girls! ***
Fun In Acapulco ***
Roustabout ****
Paradise, Hawaiian Style **
Easy Come, Easy Go **


Nicholas And Alexandra (Region B)
Nicholas And Alexandra (Region B)
Dvd ~ Lynne Frederick
Offered by GREAT4DVD
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The picture quality is very good and an obvious step-up in quality from the UK ..., 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Blu-ray is a Spanish (Region B) release so will play on all UK Blu-ray players. Whilst the case is in Spanish language, understandably given it is produced for the Spanish market, the film itself has the original English language print and soundtrack. As the film has yet to receive a UK Blu-ray release this is an ideal way to add this to your collection. The picture quality is very good and an obvious step-up in quality from the UK DVD. If you like the film then at this price I would say this is a bargain. The Blu-ray arrived in 3 days from Spain too so I have since bought additional Blu-rays from this firm through the Amazon marketplace. Excellent service.


Bulldog 007 SPECTRE Royal Doulton Jack [2015] Spectre Limited Edition British flag (Union Jack)
Bulldog 007 SPECTRE Royal Doulton Jack [2015] Spectre Limited Edition British flag (Union Jack)
Offered by GiftCompany
Price: £52.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Royal Doulton `Jack` Bulldog as featured in SPECTRE, 31 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given some of the mixed reviews for this item I was a little apprehensive after ordering but I needn`t have worried. `Jack` the bulldog was exactly as advertised being an officially authorised and faithful reproduction of the Royal Doulton figure that appears in SPECTRE. The painting and finish of the figure is to a high standard as one would expect from an iconic firm. If you are a 007 fan then this is an essential purchase.

Great Series - would have awarded 5 Stars for series but as other reviewers have highlighted the packaging lets this product down.
