4.0 out of 5 stars Gangster Classic...., 14 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best British Gangster movie since Get Carter.Well written well cast and a good combination of mystery and gangster genres which I can't remember happening before .I have read some reviewers concerns re picture quality on the blu-ray
and I do agree it could have been better .However I think we'll be left with what we got it's a niche market movie
by that I mean it's biggest market will probably be in UK and Ireland and may not justify the cost of complete
restoration/ re-mastering I don't agree with this we deserve to see this brilliant movie in it's best possible condition.
Having said this the blu-ray is only a fiver and it's not that bad of a transfer and it's always a great show

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Perfection...., 10 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just got my copy on blu-ray today words fail me. This is an exceptional disc a 50 year old movie looks and sounds great.
The movie itself is a classic well orchestrated by Hitchcock a case of mistaken identity leads to murder and intrigue
classic example of Hitchcocks' ability to manipulate the most mundane situation with utter believability.The extras
on the disc are second to none supporting the movie the director and star well done Warner.I think this is how blu-ray should be presented rather than the drip feeding manner so modern movies are released just so we'll double or treble dip
Still this disc is a refreshing change maybe one day other studios will follow suit and give the punter what we deserve
We can only hope.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Trek but not as we know it...., 9 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Star Trek owes a lot to this little series.Originally a saturday morning filler I remember watching it on BBC in the 70's
As a child and a Trek fan as were many friends it kept alive the flame of Trek in our young minds and in countless others too I'm sure.All the original cast except Walter Koenig ,Chekov recreate their characters here I can't remember this happening before or since with such a crossover I may be wrong on this .The stories are written by some of the original series writers Gerrold D.C.Fontana etc and as such are excellent.I know it looks a little dated but with animation being so popular nowadays this show certainly deserves a chance to prove it's worth and at the current price it's an even more attractive proposition and a essential part of any Trek collection

5.0 out of 5 stars Faster than a speeding bullet, 9 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series has classic etched all over it. The stories are well written and the cast gel together.These are the first colour seasons and we get the added dimension of the comic book feel created by the over bright colours in Supermans costume
pure 50's kitsch not that I was around at the time I just like the movies then particularly the sci-fi.This is a great show well worth the time of all Superman fans and everyone else as well you never know you may be pleasantly surprised...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Set That Failed......, 8 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...refers to an episode title not this excellent collection.These shows aired long before I was born and my exposure to Hancock was via vhs or tribute shows and the like.This set is on sale in Ireland for between 60 to 90 euro the price at amazon
is considerably less. The picture quality is ok remember it's almost 50 years old the shows I ve seen so far are brilliant
and am looking forward to the rest can't see much work being done today

5.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Knight, 6 Jun. 2010
Two absolutely brilliant movies in one pack isn't that unique.Chris Nolan reboots the franchise with his own inimatable style.
Bale is probably the best screen Batman so far playing the two sided character with a great deal of empathy.Caine as always is excellent as butler Alfred.This pack also offers excellent extras.A big plus in my opinion is the price If your just starting your blu-ray collection your getting 2 movies made for blu-ray at a great price. I started my collection with The Dark Knight
last year paying 40 euro and Batman Begins for 25 euro now Amazon are selling both for a third of that price great movies
great picture and sound quality and a great price Let the show begin....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Hitch-Box, 5 Jun. 2010
Simply A MUST HAVE...14 Hitchcock movies which should please fans and passing viewers alike.It's impossible to review a set of
this size fairly suffice to say some movies you'll like more than others naturally enough.The selection here is wide and varied from ROPE to FRENZY THE BIRDS to TROUBLE WITH HARRY you get the gist something for everyone.Theres an excellent selection of extras on offer on every disc also.I bought this set at the local Zaavi closing down sale for 30 euro last year
I thought it a bargain then but look at the amazon price now even lower. If you buy this set you'll not regret your investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Star Collection, 4 Jun. 2010
I won't be long winded and harp on about this set,much as I'd like to.Without doubt this is one of the finest collections available.The movie transfers are brilliant as is the sound the movies themselves rate from great to poor ie trek 5 but the world knows that anyway.The extras package is phenomonal each movie has a commentary some multiple ones there is extensive behind the scenes material for each movie with multiple featurettes both modern and vintage.The entertainment value of this set is remarkable and I don't think any review whatever the size could do it justice.At the current price this set represents
exceptional value and an essential part of any fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lighter shade of Tim, 2 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Ed Wood [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Tim Burton's bio pic of Ed Wood and what a movie.Loved by fans and critics alike yet a box office failure,another of lifes mysteries.Depp is excellent as the title character Wood film producer and director and determined to suceed no matter what.
He assembles a motley crew as he pursues his dreams of fame Bela Lugosi of Dracula fame being the most prominent played by oscar winning Martin Landau.Together they embark on Woods many schemes to produce movies with hilarious results.Burton creates
a strange sense of family between this gang of misfits while Depps'caring portrayal of Wood provides the glue to bind them
together as they eagerly search for purpose in their lives.An excellent movie well balanced between comedy and pathos supported by excellent performances and a good extras package if you haven't seen this movie your really missing out

5.0 out of 5 stars The discs' alright, 31 May 2010
A great presentation of a classic The disc looks good and sounds great.30 years on it's still fresh and packed with now famous faces.The highlight extra is the commentary informative and great fun it's non stop and never boring.The docs are standard fare but quite watchable.If you like looking for stars of the present in older movies then you won't be disappointed here
I'll not try naming them here I wouldn't spoil the fun.All said a good package for a thirty year old movie and a great way to discover or remember, depending on your age ,a forgotten era of 60's history
