The Inspector Lynley Mysteries - Series 6 [DVD] [2007]
The Inspector Lynley Mysteries - Series 6 [DVD] [2007]
Dvd ~ Sharon Small
Offered by MediaMerchants
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars I would like to add my 2 Bobs worth to the comentary, 1 Dec. 2014
As a person who has only recently discovered this series, I would like to add my 2 Bobs worth to the comentary.
While I enjoy these 2 characters as they work together I also find the Inspectors offsider to be a pain in the arse,
is it that difficult for her to obey a direct order from a superior ???
At least Inspector Frost had a sense of humour when he "kind of" dissobeyed Mullet, and for Linley to paint his
sergeants flat .................. without being asked.......... !!!!!!!!!!!!
Other than that I enjoyed ...... mostly ..... this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars one extra too many., 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I agree with other opinions about this great film however I need to add a comment about the "video conversation".
"The Masters Of Cinema Series" made an extra which consisted of 2 men {Don Sallit & Jaime N. Christley}
seated in front of an unlit fireplace with a camera focused on them both,
I found this to be soooooo boring and adds very little to the film.
To add commentary to a film, I found this is usually done with the film in motion, not the way these 2 men perform
with a seemingly endless talkfest which goes on and on and on in no particular direction, and with no way for the viewer
to escape until it ends, perhaps it was their way of getting 5 hours of fame {it seemed like that long anyway}.
However the other extra from the 'Lux Radio Theatre' from March 7 1949, with John Wayne... Walter Brennan...Joanne Dru
reprising their roles was a welcome addition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Xmas Specials, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
See my review of "The Two Ronnies season 5" for my review of this.
I give the DVD 5 stars and the sender 1 for the absence of any padding on its journey across the planet.

3.0 out of 5 stars The 2 Ronnies could describe the sender better than I !, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With "The Two Ronnies" season 5 and its Christmas Specials they arrived together in a cardboard package without any effort to add any padding, I could call such a person who would post DVD's in such a way a Stupid Bastard, however having been brought up better than that I will not.


Gene Autry Collection: Sons of New Mexico [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Gene Autry Collection: Sons of New Mexico [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in the saddle again, 29 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very enjoyable and clearly put together with lots of love.
The viewer is intrduced to a little discussion on "Gene Autrey's Melody Ranch Radio Show"
with Gene Autrey and his long time associate with the unmistakable voice Pat Buttram,
they talk a little about the film to come "Sons Of New Mexico" which then comes on,
after the film they finish by bidding farewell.
Also on the Dvd are 3 songs and the 10th anniversery of the radio show, while this is being played different pictures are on the screen and I feel this works very well, even the President of CBS phones in with congratulations on July 29 1950.
Brought to you by "Double Mint chewing Gum".


Cleopatra (3 Disc Special Edition) [1963] [DVD]
Cleopatra (3 Disc Special Edition) [1963] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Elizabeth Taylor

5.0 out of 5 stars very good, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am very impressed with this 3 DVD set released by "20 Century Fox Home Entertainment".
The booklet included is of great assistance with information such as :
1. Production was shifted from Italy to England when it was found that the Summer Olympics in Rome
were making it impossible to find accomodation for cast and crew.
When in September shooting began English weather made it impossible , rain mud slush fog,
"on a good day, whenever a word was spoken, you could see the vapour coming from the actor's mouths"
2. In October Elizabeth Taylor came down with meningitis, and because she was in almost every scene,
filming came to a standstill.
In March Taylor came down with Pneumonia and an emergancy Tracheotomy had to be done to save her.
3. Taylor and Burton fell in love - though both were married - the press descended like sharks.
4. For the part of Cleopatra Taylor was asked to name her price ... one million dollars.
5. As principal photography was finally wrapped up in the summer of 1962 Skouras resigned as
president of Fox.

4 Academy awards were won , the budget was 2 million dollars it cost 35 million

If you want a Blu-Ray without extras this is the one for you,
it does not even have one for scene access.

5.0 out of 5 stars music with a difference, 9 July 2012
This review is from: My Little River (MP3 Download)
I have only heard a sampling of this music on Australian radio
and was hoping that a DVD was available through Amazon,
however no luck as of July 2012.
I found the harmonies delightful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Val Doonican in his later years. Boring., 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Val Doonican - My Land [DVD] (DVD)
I was hoping this release would contain songs from Doonicans television program
however as in the case of the other DVD release this is Val Doonican in his later years.
Even a menu is lacking.
