The Legend Of Bruce Lee [DVD]
The Legend Of Bruce Lee [DVD]
Dvd ~ Kwok-Kwan Chan
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £3.48

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheaply Made Soap Opera, 14 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The art work and product description make this film seem like a must have for your collection. But - it is like a cheaply made soap opera. It has not been made with cinema cameras. If you're from the UK as I am then I would say the quality you find on such daytime soaps such as Neighbours or Home And Away are far better, even CBeebies dramas are of a higher standard. This is no exaggeration and probably has to be seen to be believed. It has all the quality of a very low budget TV drama. If you are a Bruce Lee fan and probably desperate for anything related to the icon then you will probably disregard the bad reviews as I did and also be dissappointed. If so buy it as cheaply as you possibly can as I did. The movie 'Young Bruce Lee is a far better buy, made from his brother Robert Lee's point of view and is a very satisfying, informative and entertaining film.....Or of course 'Dragon- The Bruce Lee Story'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Get Enough Of Ray Ray?, 14 Feb. 2017
This is a must for any fan of the show. Merchandise is a bit scarce so having this CD fills the void between seasons :) Buy it for yourself it won't disappoint, or buy it for a fan and make their day :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy Bites!, 31 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Z Nation - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
When the humans get bitten cheese spills out! If you enjoy the type of films or tv shows where the bulk of the budget has been spent on sets and effects ...and not on cast then this is for you. I am a fan of The Walking Dead and gave Z Nation a try based on the positive reviews but it wasn't for me. A reasonable premise following a band of survivors transporting an immune human from New York to California, if it were a movie it would be straight to DVD. You can see them acting. On the plus side I loved the punchy camera work it added a real speed and tension to the 'Z's' making them seem faster and more threatening than those of TWD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Gatlins Meet The Gaithers, 30 Oct. 2014
This is by far one of my favourite Gaither Gospel Series DVDs. Although not strictly a Homecoming installment it does contain all the quality ingredients. In the presence and with the participation of the most iconic names in the Gospel field such as Jake Hess, JD Sumner and Lilly Weatherford the Gatlin brothers perform a great many classics of which the highlights for me are He Touched Me, What A Precious Friend Is He and Walk With Me. Full of heartwarming stories and emotional testimonies this DVD is a must buy for fans of Southern Gospel and the Gaither collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis - The Singing Rodeo Rider!, 6 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Tickle Me [DVD] (DVD)
Elvis is the singing rodeo rider who happens upon a health spa and a mysterious escapade surrounding a treasure map. Full of all the hallmarks of a formula Elvis movie - girls, songs and fun. This movie is for fans to enjoy. It has to be said that anyone looking to watch an Elvis movie typical of it's time should give the classics a go such as Viva Las Vegas, Blue Hawaii & Roustabout. The producers knew they were on to a winner with Elvis movies and as with this film the script suffered and they didn't even provide new material for a soundtrack instead drawing on previously released hits from the the King such as Night Rider, Dirty, Dirty Feeling and I'm Yours. It was the middle part of the sixties and Elvis was in a rut and in need of a new challenge. This would come with a quality recording session resulting in the How Great Thou Art album, marriage, a comeback special and his return to live performances. Regardless of what the Colonel and producers threw at Elvis he never let's his audience down and was always entertaining. Definately worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis - The Singing Soldier!, 6 Sept. 2014
This review is from: G.I. Blues [DVD] [1960] (DVD)
The King returns to movie making! Tulsa MacLean (Elvis) is a soldier and singer trying to raise funds with his buddies to open a club back home, enter German dancing sensation and love interest Juliet Prowse and let the mayhem begin. Tanks, guns, guys & girls and a certain Punch & Judy show make this a must see for anyone interested in Elvis Presley the actor. A great soundtrack including Wooden Heart, Pocketful Of Rainbows and Didja Ever. Elvis is clean cut, slim and repackaged having been serving in the U.S Army for a couple of years and such was the success of this movie formula that it continued for the rest of the decade. Great family fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis - The Singing Race Car Driver!, 6 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Speedway [DVD] [1968] (DVD)
A typical Elvis movie of the late sixties. Steve Grayson (Elvis) is a singing,dancing & loving race car driver with best friend and manager (Bill Bixby) spending their cash faster than he can win it, enter tax collecting Nancy Sinatra who is about to fall for the King. Fast cars, guys & girls, cute kids and an assortment of songs peppered throughout - the standout songs are the title track Speedway, Your Time Hasn't Come Yet Baby & Let Yourself Go. Elvis is on fine form, slim, married and looking forward to his legendary 1968 'comeback' - of course he never went away, his movie obligations aside, it's during this period of his career that you see the stirrings of things to come. A must have for any fan of the King.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic Indeed!, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved this installment of the Gaither Gospel Series. This features the Homecoming Friends 'In The Wild' on a cruise ship exposed to the elements in all their glory! It's great to see them out of their comfort zone and really connecting with a crowd they have also mixed with courtesy of some cruise footage woven throughout the DVD. There are some great performances from the likes of The Isaacs, The Hoppers, GVB and Gene MacDonald but for me the highlights are from Larnelle Harris with a standout rendition of Amen and the showstopper I've Just Seen Jesus with Layde Love Smith.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ladies Of Gospel, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another wonderful concept from Bill Gaither, about time the women of gospel music took center stage. Great to see Homecoming favourites like Sherri Easter, The Isaacs & Martins performing solos along with seasoned solo artists such as Angela Primm and Lynda Randle. It has a fresh contemporary feel also with the addition of talented newcomer Jamie Grace. A fitting bookend to the previously released Reunion Vol 1 & 2 featuring an all male ensemble of GVB members past and present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gaither Nostalgia, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderfully nostalgic Gaither DVD. This is definately for fans of the Gaither Homecoming Series. It's an overview of the careers of some of the familiar faces of Southern Gospel music of yesteryear. There are some great clips of The Happy Goodmans and The Statesmen Quartet with anecdotes and interviews with the likes of Jake Hess and George Younce. Bill Gaither does a fantastic job as host presenting life stories of his heroes and friends.
