3.0 out of 5 stars Only OK, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Little really to get excited about. Yes, it's well shot but the acting/screenplay/direction doesn't match the BBC or Jeremy Irons series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up, 6 May 2013

Pretty much plug and play, although my only gripe is that to update firmware on an adapter (which has been necessary on all 6 of mine) it has to be directly connected to your computer, which has meant much scrabbling about in my case (& I'm not getting any younger!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor, 5 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hunger - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Very disappointed. Despite the hype of the directors & a few of the stars this is generally a big underachievement in my view. Despite being made in the 90s the whole feel is of early 80s TV tripe!

3.0 out of 5 stars Average for the price, 5 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems reasonable quality but also seems very expensive for what arrives on your doormat! I would buy more at a smaller size if needed in future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very dated, 5 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a badly executed attempt. The storyline is poor and full of gaps. The direction is weak as is the screenplay. There is little attempt at character building. It comes across as a low budget b-movie and whoever told Karen Black she could sing and write songs was woefully misguided!


Hammer Films: The Elstree Studios Years

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific!, 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a phenomonal work. The amount of detail is just staggering. Although this is my favourite era of Hammer Films I find the Bray studios "sister" book even better. I hung on and hung on, hoping that this book would be reprinted, but eventually HAD to order it 2nd hand at a high price. It's still worth it (just) but the publishers would do the world a favour by reprinting it!

It's a must for any serious (or even curious) Hammer/Horror film fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but interesting., 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Carry on" Uncensored (Hardcover)
Some interesting facts about the Carry On films. I wasn't expecting the likes of the brilliant Wayne Kinsey books on Hammer Films, but I felt a little disappointed with the detail (or rather, lack of it). Still I would recommend it , certainly as an introduction. That said the only other book I've heard of which potentially has more to offer on the subject is long out of print.

Life on the Edge ( La Vida abismal ) [English subtitles] [DVD]
Dvd ~ ”scar Jaenada

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what you think, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Anyone thinking this is the Spanish version of Life on Mars (like me, after amazon's search engine brought it up) is in for a big disappointment. It's totally unconnected & apparently the "real deal" doesn't have English subtitles & Amazon don't sell it anyway. This is a fairly well made film but rather pointless. It just didn't work for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective product!, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cleaning/repair solution had solidified in the tube & no amount of warming & squeezing would coax it out. The seller was extremely apologetic & refunded my money without me having to return the item so I would definitely use them again, but I'm afraid its a big thumbs down for Allsop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterclass in crime/thriller TV, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spiral - Series 1-2 [DVD] (DVD)
This is extremely well crafted tv. The plots are plausable, script well written & direction top-notch. The standard of acting is very high - Audrey Fleurot is a stunning actress in every sense. If people are worried that subtitles detract, don't be. Having seen Season 3 on tv I can't wait for Season 4.
