4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting failure., 30 Dec. 2016
This review is from: The Last Tycoon [DVD] [1976] (DVD)
A worthy, if not totally successful, attempt to film Fitzgerald's last and unfinished masterpiece. Strongly cast and well directed, Pinter's screenplay makes significant plot changes that weaken the admittedly unfinished narrative and produces a rather weak ending. Still it's worth two hours of any fan of Fitzgerald in particular.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable. Shame about the DVD., 29 Dec. 2016
Good old Hollywood melodrama. Well acted and directed nostalgia. Unfortunately this appears to be a television print produced from a video source so the image is very soft and filled with artefacts. Still, until there's a restored print this is as good as you can expect. 4 stars for the film but just 3 grid the DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay..., 24 Dec. 2016
This review is from: The Martian [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Technically brilliant but narratively plodding. Damon is excellent but the plot is totally predictable from the moment the movie begins and has no surprises whatsoever. It's film making by numbers (or committee in reality.) Okay - but don't expect more than that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing remarkable - rather plodding and unconvincing., 24 Dec. 2016
This review is from: Bridge of Spies [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
Despite a fantastic performance from Mark Rylance this film is rather a ploddingly predictable affair with Hanks failing to convince in the lead. Okayish but it could have been much better.

This review is from: The Queen's Sister (DVD)
Surprisingly solid and entertaining - with a first rate cast. It does make one wonder why we pay our taxes towards the royal family though.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining., 24 Dec. 2016
Very entertaining if not totally successful. Trying to pull together a coherent plot, and give it a proper ending, was too much for the writer and the last few moments of the don't convince - because they aren't true! However it's amusing and quite moving at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars First rate gothic thriller series., 24 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful production values, a clever script and first rate acting result in an impressive and clever gothic triumph. Congratulations to all concerned - even if the sex gets a bit too exploitative at times...
