1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish.., 5 Mar 2014
Ill keep this short and sweet...its absolute rubbish..the build quality is like plastic from an Airfix kit....the screen is quality is worse than my mobile phone...and the speed is like something thats grinding to a holt after having gigabytes of software on it...(I dont have any on it yet except the awful Windows 8)....avoid at all costs...I also have a 7 years old Dell which seems like a Rolls Royce up to this 1990's Skoda....

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyed it...., 4 Feb 2014
Firstly I'd like to say something about the quality of the packaging and contents..when I received this set it was the weight that suprised me. There was obviously more than i expected inside..not only do you get 4 x DVDs, but also 6 x collectors postcard size photos all beautifully presented, this was a very good start.
So onto the series itself...this is not a Red Dwarf Clone I repeat this is not a Red Dwarf clone, although similar, set in space and humerous, its unfair to compare the two like for like. This series is a brave attempt to do something different, it doesnt always work, then again neither did Red Dwarf all the time. If you enjoy good special effects, odd characters, a weird storyline and some excellent acting, then dim the lights crack open a bottle of wine and let the absurdity of it all put a smile on your face...I did and it did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear....must be me..., 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beauty Jungle [DVD] (DVD)
I ordered this film after reading the mainly 5 star reviews on here. On the possitive side I enjoyed the wonderful colour but sadly thats about all except the fact it was shot in Weston Super Mare and Bristol, my home town which can be seen in the earlier and final scenes...
Thinking about it maybe these sort of reviews are better posted on the International Movie Data Base or Rotten Tomatoes, however I digress.
For me the leading players were completely miss cast..Janette Scott I feel looks too old for the part and not at all attractive enough to warrant the attention she seems to garner from the cast. Ian Hendry not at all leading man fodder..Purdom would of been much better as he shows in some of the scenes with Scott. There always seems to be comic relief in these sort of films hence the presence of Fraser but to be honest the relationship with Scott is never realy allowed to develop one suspects maybe some of it ended up on the cutting room floor. This could of been a more moody..gritty expose of the murky world of Beauty Contests instead of a under budgeted at times glossy excuse to show lots of women in various stages of undress.
Also dont be deceived by the fact Sid James is listed on the DVD cover..hes in it for about 30 seconds only playing a beauty contest judge and doesnt get a single line of dialogue.
This could of been so much better .....

This review is from: Some People [DVD] (DVD)
As I come from Bristol this really is a 'must have'..and hearing it was now available as an 'official release' I decided to get a copy..In the past Ive only managed to view the 'boot leg' version thats been circulating for some years now..so was pleasantly suprised to see the wonderful colour in this version.
Interestingly If you are reading this having only seen the 'boot leg' version, you might be suprised to learn that this has a whole new part to the story which I assume was edited out of the version shown on TV because of time restraints...I wont ruin it for you..but in this official release Angela Douglas has a much bigger part and mimes to several more songs.
Having said all that the film becomes somewhat longer and dare I say slightly tedious..but maybe thats because ive seen it so many times..It sort of gets played if any Bristolians pop in for tea...as 'spot the location' seems to be quite a pass time here in Bristol...

Well I got this for a friend....(No really)...and I hate to admit it..but I really enjoyed it. I wont bore you with some amateur in depth review..but just listen to 'Me and Mrs Jones'...you can actually believe Mr Buble means what hes singing...others have tried but in my humble opinion havent come close to performing withy the sincerety Mr Buble achieves.....I originally wrote him off as a cheap Frank Sinatra tribute act..hes certainly proving me wrong..
