Woman in Gold [DVD] (2015)
Woman in Gold [DVD] (2015)
Dvd ~ Helen Mirren
Offered by DVD Overstocks
Price: £6.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent fim, 10 April 2016
This review is from: Woman in Gold [DVD] (2015) (DVD)
Excellent film based on the true story of Maria Altman and her long legal battle with the Austrian authorities to reclaim the stolen portrait of her aunt Adele (Woman in gold). Helen Mirren outstanding as always and with a very convincing Austrian accent!

I've found the attitude of the Austrian authorities, as depicted in the film, quite disturbing. Even after all these years since the Nazis mistreated the Jewish community and stole their valuables, including works of art, the Austrian authorities do not seem very cooperative in returning these items to their rightful owners. The so called Restitution Act is more or less a PR stunt, as Hubertus mentions in the film. There are still hundeds of cases like this which have not been solved yet...

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 4 April 2016
This review is from: Pan [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Why is Hollywood so obsessed these days by taking classic fairy tales and turning them into utter rubbish? This film has very little to do with the original J.Barrie story. It's supposed to be a sort of "prequel" to the Peter Pan story but everything in it is simply a mess. I even found some scenes unsuitable for very young children ( the pirates ship for instance, flying above London during WWII and being attacked by Spitfires!). This film is an insult to the classic Peter Pan story we all know and love. If you want to watch a decent live action adaptation of Peter Pan, I would recommend the Australian production from 2003. And of course the Disney animated version from 1953.

Good tunes but be warned: if you buy the double LP it is cut on 45rpm even though it says 33 on the label!

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 2 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jess and James [DVD] (DVD)
Based on good reviews here, I dediced to buy this film. I literally struggled to stay awake til the end. There is not much of a plot and I didn't really care about the characters. The only nice thing was probably the cinematography, especially of the Argentinian countryside. But even that was not enough to save this dire film. Don't waste your money on this one.

If you like SHAKATAK you'll probably like this. Nice jazz-funk style.

It Happened One Night [DVD] [1934]
Dvd ~ Clark Gable
Price: £4.42

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hollywood classic., 17 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Even though this film is 81 years old it has lost nothing of its charm. Deserves all the Academy Awards it has won, including best picture of 1934.. Charming, funny and entertaining romantic comedy. The chemistry between Gable and Colbert is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars First crush through the eyes of a teenager., 3 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hidden Away [DVD] (DVD)
Do you remember your first crush? Who doesn't? In this case things are a bit more complicated as we are witnessing the love between two teenage boys. The one is Rafa from Spain and the other is Ibrahim, a Maroccan immigrant who's about to be deported from Spain. I like the issues that this film is dealing with ( illegal immigrants looking for a better life, xenophobia, first love through the eyes of a 15-year-old and so on). This is a wonderful film though it could have been even better with a little more script and character development , but still very good. The last scene had me all in tears and it's rarely that I do that! It really broke my heart watching the two leads saying goodbye without actually putting it into words. Great perfomances from the two leads. A film that I`ll watch more than once. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Global Warming [DVD] (DVD)
The only enjoyable film from this collection is the first one ( You can't curry love) which I had already seen on YouTube a few years ago! If I had known about this I would have never bought this DVD since the rest of this bunch is basically crap. Three stars from me and that is ONLY for "You can't curry love".

1.0 out of 5 stars I have owned quite a few quality turntables over the years and this is by far the worst piece of crap I've ever seen and listene, 11 Feb. 2015

If you're serious about listening to vinyl records then you should look elsewhere. This is a very cheaply made piece of junk which will most definately will damage your records. I have owned quite a few quality turntables over the years and this is by far the worst piece of crap I've ever seen and listened to. I must have been out of mind when I ordered this!!! If you want a good portable record player buy a vintage one from e-bay.
