5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie, 20 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best Star Wars film since The Empire Strikes Back.
Gareth Edwards, (the director) has an outstanding talent for epic visuals, mixed with a Ridley Scott type eye for the artistic, Edwards is exactly what Star Wars needed, and I hope he does more in the franchise, in fact I'll watch anything he does from now on,

Cast is brilliant, not one unlikable character, no padding, or dry dialogue,
Music is good, keeping John Williams motif, (but unless you are John Williams you are going to lose out by comparison)
The story is very "magnificent seven" and dovetails directly in to "The New Hope"
(question: what happened to all the bothans that die getting the data?)
The pace and rhythm is not as frenetic as the original trilogy, but is much better balanced than JJ's or the prequels, Rouge One is a different story, a more thoughtful one, and the subtleties are not lost, (I like K2)

A very much welcome addition to Star Wars canon,

Yes, go buy this, if like me you consider Empire the high point of Star Wars you will like this movie,

I can almost forgive them for the last outing......
(you reading this JJ?....go away...)

3.0 out of 5 stars I WARNED YOU!!!, 21 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadpool [DVD] [2016] (DVD)
Deadpool, so not child safe....sooo not,
A lot of sex scenes including butt stuff....yeah...

And there is gore, not to bad, butt....

And lots and LOTS of swearing....potmouth a gogo.....

On the up side, his bat mobile is a taxi!

I really liked the scene with the tiny hand,
Colossus is great sorta Groot like likable,
Negasonic was also cool in a reserved way,

This film is sooo not kiddy safe, not sure I'm even old enough....

It's part of the X men universe,
It's got a ton of humor, and it's better than x men last stand...nuff said

NEW GAME:
Write your single description of Deadpool's "you look like.."

You look like, Someone made an omelet out of Nick Noltes face, then let it go moldy....

This review is from: Robocop [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Took me awhile too getting around to buying this, I was not a fan of the original, which was crude, stupid and unrelatable,

But I LUV this version of Robocop, intelligent, stylish, and polished, with rounded 3 dimensional characters, (unlike the cheesy 2D comic book characters of the earlier outing)
And more importantly this version has a soul, (something woefully lacking in the previous version)

If like me, you were put off watching this version of Robocop due to the pervious version, Don’t be,
(in fact, if I had known this movie was this good I would have seen this at the cinema, then bought the DVD, instead of waiting so long)

If you are looking for a movie with content, Buy this,

FIVE STARS

Cool, Just wish the cable was longer, (say a meter or more) its little awkward to handle with a HDMI attached

Good value for money, I got 25 feet of HDMI cable for less than £12,
The product works fine,

The only thing I could criticize is the cable is rather "chunky" like twice the thickness of my other HDMI cables "chunky"
If that's not an issue, you have a bargain,

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not great, needed more meat on its bones,, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a broad story (kinda closed, Whatdoyaknow Ryan Reynolds cop character and "gold" would be so relevant to the story?!? (easy thing too fix though, "Sit down bub, the peeps up stairs think you are our man for this job, given you a second chance, ....Second...Chance....I'm sure a naughty boy like you would see the benefits in that, ...right?...don't pretend not too know...we know everything" (from out of nowhere a two foot deep folder file suddenly drops on to the desk,) "........yeah")

I really liked their alternative characters, an old Chinese guy toting a banana, and a bimbo toting a hairdryer, did not get old,

CGI was hit and miss (should have maybe gone green screen/ practical)
Music was solid,

I think the negative critical wrap was unfair, this film has its moments,
I would have watched a sequel,

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stylish comic strip humor at its finest,
Not one weak character in the show,

Brilliantly written,

Btw, is it just me or does Joe Lo Truglio (Charles Boyle in the show) sorta looks like E.T?

A character driven monster movie, that doesn't take itself to seriously,

Cult classic for a reason,

5.0 out of 5 stars Proud to own this classic, 20 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best in classical Sci/Fi
Everyone should see this movie at least once,
Made in a time when content was more important than the special effects (But I'm sure this movie was groundbreaking at the time)

Great Movie
