5.0 out of 5 stars Do not watch in a library or airport - But DO watch Ted, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ted (Amazon Instant Video)
My boss and I watched Ted on my iPad on a flight to Germany and made ourselves quite unpopular on the plane because it is impossible not to literally 'Laugh Out Loud' at this movie. It turns the 'Toy comes to life' concept on its head, and Toy Story it aint!

By the end of the flight a stranger came over to us and said "what the hell were you two watching? I've not seen two people clutching their sides and trying to stifle so much laughter for a long time".

Ted is vulgar, controversial, politically incorrect and absolutely brilliant. I for one can't wait for the sequel which is being made right now!


Thunderbirds

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic show that has aged well, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its Thunderbirds, its a Gerry Anderson show, what more do I need to say. Mr Anderson's finest hour and as someone once said his special brand of technology porn. Big aircraft, giant machines and explosions! The amazing quality of this production can be really put to the test by closing your eyes, as when you just listen to the quality of the performances and soundtrack you can really appreciate that everyone involved wanted this to be the very best that was technologically possible for T.V in those days. At 30,0000 per episode (in the 1960's) it was an expensive show but you see where every penny went 'on screen'. I recently met some of the original cast and despite everything that they have done since, they are rightly proud of Thunderbirds. If you've never seen this T.V show, please do not be put off by the awful 'Spy Kids' style movie of a few years ago, this is the original and best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Indiana Jones movie but still fun, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As most people would agree this is not in the same league as Raiders or Last Crusade but there is still enough of the original Indiana Jones fun to make this worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Movies and a great box set, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is of course nothing new to add about these classic films, they are great, end of subject. This is a nice little box set which I got for a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars An off the wall soundtrack to an off the wall show, 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you never saw the Reeves and Mortimer remake of the 60's Randall & Hopkirk then you need to be good to yourselves and get it on DVD. This soundtrack is an odd mix of tracks but great fun and the tracks on it were perfect for the show.


Dad's Army - The Movie
Dad's Army - The Movie
Dvd
Offered by Lovefilm UK Limited
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A real oldie that's gotten better with age., 16 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I grew up a fan of Dad's Army but I remember being confused by this film as it tells the story of the formation of the Walmington on Sea home guard which I had already seen in the TV show. Looking through older eyes I realise that this was done to try to get a new audience to watch the show after watching the film and in fact it works really well as a movie even though much of it is taken (or appears to be) from TV episodes.

This is a real treat and a nostalgic look at this time in history, a perfect Sunday afternoon movie that will leave you with a smile on your face and wanting to search out the original show.

Its sad that so few of the cast are still with us but this reminds us how talented they were and they live on through this quaint little movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do you follow 'Avengers Assemble'? Well this is a good start., 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved The original Thor movie and was disappointed to hear that Kenneth Brannagh was not going to direct the sequel, however my worries were unfounded as this movie is great fun. Loud, exciting and with a great cast (good to see more from Idris Elba) and all the humour, in jokes and nods to other movies that we expect from Marvel. Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki and of course is a scene stealer but watch out for another unexpected and funny cameo by a Marvel universe character! By the way there are two end credit extra scenes after the initial end credits so stick with it after the main movie has finished, especially if you are (like me) looking forward to the new 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie as there is a character from that movie in these end credit scenes.

If you enjoyed Thor and Avengers (Assemble) this is a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible not to enjoy, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If I'm honest it took a couple of views of this since it came out for me to really like this movie but suddenly it clicked and I am now a big fan of MI4. It is helped by the fact that the stunts are not being done by CGI stunt men and what's more the sickening high altitude stunts in the Dubai scenes are actually Tom Cruise! How the hell he got the insurance is beyond me but it's to Tom's credit that he wanted the realism and he was apparently determined not to short change the audience.

The cast as a whole are great and big nods to Simon Pegg as the tech geek of the team, he gets some of the best lines. Also the prison break at the opener of the movie is great fun.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch this film. Then like me you will be looking forward to MI5 which has recently been announced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rush to your PC and buy this!, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rush (2013) (Amazon Instant Video)
As with any 'true story' you can often find that scenes have been added to help the story but from what I remember of the events from the point of view of a racing fan, this is all pretty plausible stuff. These two racers were larger than life characters and this movie is a fascinating look behind the glamour of the race track and to look at the sacrifices that these guys were willing to make for their sport.

Definitely worth renting or as I did buying on Amazon Instant.
