A Most Wanted Man [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Anton Corbijn
A Most Wanted Man [DVD] DVD ~ Anton Corbijn
A group of German intelligence agents in Hamburg are watching a Muslim man who has arrived in Germany from Russia claiming asylum. Is this man a terrorist? One of Phillip Seymour Hoffman's final films, this is a slow burn but tense thriller with an excellent performance from Hoffman as German spy master Gunther with good performances from Willem Dafoe, Rachel Mcadams and Robin Wright. This is more Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy than James Bond though so don't expect an action packed thriller and while Hoffman did better films this is still a solid, enjoyable film.
Doctor Who: Trouble in Paradise (Destiny of the Do&hellip by Nev Fountain
3.0 out of 5 stars Carry on Columbus, 17 Sep 2014
The 6th Doctor gets a message from the future and the 11th Doctor which leads him to 1492 just as Christopher Columbus is about to discover America. The crew of Columbus' ship believe that it is haunted by the devil and they are about to sail off the edge of the world. The Destiny Of The Doctor series which features a story from each Doctor and sees each Doctor getting a message from the future and the 11th Doctor has truth to be told, a bit hit and miss. Some stories have been better than others and this is one of the weaker more average ones. A lot of this will of course also depend on how much you enjoy the talking book format which I don't mind but it doesn't seem to work as well for me… Read more
Colditz (Doctor Who) by Steve Lyons
Colditz (Doctor Who) by Steve Lyons
5.0 out of 5 stars Prisoners of war, 17 Sep 2014
The 7th Doctor and Ace land in Colditz castle at the end of World War 2 and are immediately captured by the Nazis. At first they are assumed to be British spies but then the Nazis start to take an interest in the Tardis with one Nazi in particular believing it can help Germany win the war. Coming across like an old fashioned historical adventure from the Hartnell era apart from the time travel, this is a thrilling, tense adventure featuring an early appearance from David Tennant as a Nazi years before he would get cast as the 10th Doctor, the first of several roles he would play as different characters for Big Finish. Almost unrecognizable with a strong German accent, he plays a nasty piece… Read more
