Sweet Vengeance [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Thin storyline, 5 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sweet Vengeance [DVD] (DVD)
Not a bad western, but certainly not a thriller as we know who the murderer is from the start and who the justiciar is in the place of the sheriff. The storyline is a bit thin quite frankly. I wouldn't have written the script quite like that. Reminds me of the Clint Eastwood westerns where the good guy goes round meteing out justice. The ending was a bit disappointing. Good performances from Ed Harris and Jason Isaacs. January Jones reminds me somehow of Nicole Kidman. I liked the theme music.

Simply did not germinate and with only 15 seeds in the packet was not a good purchase. I would not buy it again.

2.0 out of 5 stars starting to devious towards seriously weird, 10 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off I had a technical problem with the DVD. First disk started to stick after 15" and second part of story on same disk just wouldn't work so I returned the DVD. The other parts of the DVD did work and I can see why the series wasn't renewed.
The stories start to get away from the original idea of copycat murders or lessons derived from historical murders and starts to waft towards the weird. The lighting defects, the strange old woman, use of medium, etc, one can see the script writers starting to flounder. I can't see viewers wanting repeated flashing lights, it just distracts from the story at hand. Not their best effort.


Death in Paradise - Series 2 [DVD]
Death in Paradise - Series 2 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ben Miller
Price: £6.30

5.0 out of 5 stars What a shame it didn't continue., 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
U was not pleased that Ben Miller decided not to go on. So must have been the supporting actors all of whom were excellent. It had everything for it - detective story, local thing - a bit more unusual - lots of humour. It had great potential, but if the lead decides to pull out what can you do?

5.0 out of 5 stars very good, especially for the period (1985), 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very gripping story, gets extremely complicated at the end. It takes a while to work out who is double-crossing whom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yes, but, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think the first series was better. A problem I have with both series is that Jason Isaacs speaks with a very deep, gruff voice when doing his Yorkshire accent. Sometimes I don't quite catch what he says, but I don't have any problem with any of the other actors, so it's not my hearing. When I listen to him speak with his normal voice, no problem understanding him. I think that if a third series is envisaged, his relationship with Louise Munroe is going to be difficult to handle. The first series showed a sort of tension because it might have happened, the second series now precludes that possibility. Also we have now run out of original books. However, the screening in Edinburgh is fantastic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow moving, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure whether raising lemon grass from seed is a good idea. You can get cut lemon grass to re-root by leaving them in a glass of water. At the moment the shoots just look like grass, so a good deal of patience is required.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mysteries of Lisbon [DVD] (DVD)
The acting is very stylised. Not sure whether this is Portuguese acting or just the way it's been directed. An interesting experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thai basil, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Basil - Thai - 300 seeds
Plants are doing well, but the leaves are rather tiny for the moment. However, a sampling confirms the aniseed taste very typical of Thai basil. Likes full sunlight.
