3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed though very watchable., 8 Sept. 2015
This review is from: Girlhood [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I enjoyed Girlhood though it does fall rather short of greatness. After being told she will be unable to go to high school due to her low grades she falls almost instantly in with a girl gang. Her transformation from school girl to bad ass is just too abrupt. Her character then takes another sudden turn for the final act for reasons I simply didn't follow. This is where it really begins to fall apart. Her personality seems to almost switch upon command. It's a very good performance by the lead but Life on this estate never feels quite as harsh as the film would have us believe. The problems certainly lie with the screen play & director. It's certainly worth a look if you like coming of age dramas as it's very watchable. It's just not a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best films I've seen all year, 20 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Timbuktu Blu-ray (Blu-ray)
A film with a very pressing political message that never becomes preachy & is often quietly amusing. One of the best films I've seen all year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish., 19 Aug. 2015
Just as awful as every other Guy Richie film that has ever been released. Avoid if you are a fan of good quality films.

I bought this for my son who is mad on gaming & he loves it. I hate it because it was an absolute bast**d to put together. Would be ok if you had 18 arms. Apart from that a really cool chair.

I can add nothing more in terms of criticism to this British noir masterpiece. As for the 4 disc limited edition box set it's really nice. Best the film has ever looked with a host of extras. A must before it's gone.

This review is from: 3 Women [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
It's one of those films where I really don't quite know what to say except for that I found it utterly extraordinary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks & sounds wonderful but lacks any real character development, 3 Aug. 2015
Looks & sounds wonderful but lacks any real character development. Strip away the style & you are left with a very ordinary boy meets girl love story, where every character is little more than a stereotype. So consumed with showing us every last cinematic influence instead of developing the character's & narrative. AGWHAAN is all style with little depth.

4.0 out of 5 stars I have previously only seen the cornerstone DVD so do not know if it is worth upgrading from previous MR BONGO DVD., 28 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a review of the MR BONGO 50th anniversary restored edition Blu-Ray & not the film as we all know it is a masterpiece. The restoration itself is not going to be up to the standard that most people would expect from a restored Blu-Ray. There is no doubt it is an improvement on the previous release I saw but it is far from perfect. There is still print damage & white specks throughout the film, but the image is far more stable than on the Cornerstone release. The sound is far better too. In the end I suppose it depends on what you are expecting to be getting. It's about what I thought it would be. This film is never going to be as perfect as it could be until money is spent on a proper restoration. As this film is always going to be of limited interest then I think this is about as good as it's going to get for now. Would I recommend buying it. Only if you are prepared to accept it for what it is. Depends if you already have previous MR BONGO release. I do not know how they compare. This is the sort of film the BFI should get their hands on as they could secure the funding needed to restore it properly. I think it's worth the upgrade but I'm still hoping that one day it gets the restoration it deserves.

This is in my opinion the best Hammer film of them all. Everyone is on top form. The Arrow Blu-Ray is beautifully packaged & the transfer is good.
