In My Own Words:
Well. I was thinking of running for parliament but i ended up running for a bus! Seriously though i can't seem to get batteries big enough. Do you? I mean - what's that? Some sort of moth or something? Oh hang on, it's the door.

Interests
I like old women with 3 heads. Snooker players who are not afraid to ask questions. Sock puppets who really know how to boogie. And my mate Eddie - who just this second threw up in a restaurant. I also LOVED disused car.

Heartbreak Kid [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import]&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Charles Grodin
A natural comedy style that is way ahead of it's time. Has the awkward, close atmosphere of say The Office with lacings of Woody Allen. A big favourite of Father Ted writers Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews - you can see the influence it has on Ted's scenarios which cause him to lie and dig himself deeper.

Grodin is in splendid twitchy form as his attentions turn from his newlywed to another woman. Cybil shepherd is at her beautiful best.

Can't believe this film sits neglected on an expensive, rare poorly transferred region 1 only DVD while the lukewarm remake takes all the glory!

Criminal for this comedy masterpiece to be so overlooked. Come on DVD… Read more

Sholay Hindi DVD Fully Boxed and Sealed DVD ~ Sanjeev Kumar, Amitabh Bachan, Jaya Bhaduri Dharmendra
Two versions of Sholay are available to date. Sholay remastered is the one to get in my opinion.

The other is presented in 4.3 full screen with dodgy subtitles throughout and no translation on the songs!

Remastered is in 16.9 widescreen as intended with better translations, subtitles on the songs though there are still errors throughout, some of them laughable. Remastered is also better picture quality but not perfect. The film absolutely deserves a full restoration and more accurate translation but remastered is the best version right now.

Film wise - it's a classic. An epic musical/western romance - full on entertainment for the duration. Great fun,… Read more
Marvellous Boy: Calypso From West Africa ~ Various Artists
Cannot praise this enough. If you loved the 'London is the place for me' comps, then you will love this. If you don't know them - check them out at once.

This is rare Calypso at it's finest, put together with a very discerning ear from Honest Jon's - once again. Full praise to those guys for putting this music out there in such a glorious way. You'd pretty much not get to hear it otherwise.

2 months after owning this, i still play it all the time - a rare thing for me. It's full of humour, style, spice and skill with just the right amount of naivety. Transports you somewhere as good music often does, yet still works as perfect background to a BBQ. I mean that in a good… Read more
