5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 13 July 2013
I have just finished watching this film for the first time and felt compelled to write this review. I put off viewing Gettysburg for quite a while due to some reviews stating that the film was overly long with masses of pointless or uninteresting dialogue in between the actions sequences but in the end decided to give it a go anyway. I am so very glad I did.
This film is magnificent. The action sequences are depicted brilliantly with each of the major actions of the battle given ample screen time.

I feel that concentrating on Evil characters rather than the usual band of… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Space Adventure Cobra, 6 Dec 2011
I am shocked to see that this film has received so many 1 star reviews! Yes, I can sympathise somewhat with the disappointment of those expecting the original dub and Yello soundtrack. However, this release does contain the original language version with English subtitles; an absolute god-send for fans such as myself who can't stand the ridiculous voice-acting of much dubbed anime.
The film itself is an absolute joy to watch full of action, romance, comedy and tragedy. It tugs at your emotions and really gets you involved. Despite the fairly squashed feel of the plot (it should have been - and indeed was later turned into - a TV series to allow for greater depth and character… Read more
