In My Own Words:
Live in the south west of England. Love writing reviews, bit of a hobby in truth, it's a privilege having people read my thoughts on items I've watched or listened to. I try to give a fair and honest account of the items I review, hoping it's helpful to those trying to decide whether or not to buy. I have a fairly large collection of movies and music.

The Amazing Spider-Man (DVD + UV Copy) [2012] <b>DVD</b> ~ Andrew Garfield

Different studio,different cast...............must admit i was, before watching first time around, a little skeptical.
However although we start at the very beginning so soon after the 3-movie series(2002-7) ....i have to say, maybe because technology advances are so rapid, this film for me was a whole lot funnier with faster action ( new villains ) along with much in the way of impressive c.g.i to admire.
You know the story, sit back and enjoy 'in the beginning' all over again.
(of course the next installment will be dropping through the door very soon)
Silk [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Sei Ashina
Silk [DVD] DVD ~ Sei Ashina
Bought 'silk' quite some time back, it has taken me far too long to watch it.
'Herve' ( Micheal Pitt ) is devoted to his wife 'H'ele'ne' ( Keira Knightley ) their love is intense and full of dreams.
Four 'Silk- Mills are opened in the town in which they live, prosperity for all, but the towns livelihood is threatened when the 'silk- worms' fail to hatch.
'Herve' is asked by the mill owner to travel to far off places to acquire healthy eggs, to secure the towns wealth he accepts.
His first trip fails, his next trip could cost him his life, he goes to far off 'Japan' where danger may await, on his return the objectives are a success, he'll need to make the same trip again… Read more
A New York Winter's Tale [Blu-ray + UV Copy] [2014&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Colin Farrell
Like many films this has received mixed press and indeed reviews, the film cost around $60 million to make,
and failed at the Box-Office, does that make it a 'avoid at all costs movie' in this case i suggest, not.
This is a delightful and magical tale set in mystical 'New York' at the turn of the 20th century.
Burglar and Mechanic 'Peter Lake' (Colin Farrell) who is being hunted down by the man who had brought the
orphan up 'Pearly Soames' (Russell Crowe) and his associates, does by a twist of fate during a burglary at a
fortress-style mansion meets 'Beverly Penn' (Jessica Brown Findlay) romance blossoms between them instantly.
'Peter' falls hopelessly in love… Read more
