1.0 out of 5 stars Thriller? Bored me!, 11 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Victoria (DVD)
Someone must have thought it clever to tell a story incoherently. For me, this was irritating. We see everything from the viewpoint of the silly little Victoria, but I was unable to sympathise or get interested.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete bore, 22 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mississippi Grind (DVD)
Two gamblers go gambling and do a lot of gambling. Two scrappy unlikeable characters, doing not much except gamble. This 'grind' really is a grind.

I watched in the hope that something more would happen, but it never did. I cared so little, when the DVD failed I didn't bother trying to restore it to see how it ended. Checked the write-ups and indeed very little more did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars, 15 Sept. 2016
Homo Erectus was a distinct species, visibly different from any modern human. The book is racist trash.

4.0 out of 5 stars The unromantic reality, 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War On the Range (DVD)
This is probably how things were. A series of small confrontations that lead to bloodshed. It is hard to get into, but is well worth persisting with, since it tells a serious tale.

It should have kept its other title, Echoes of War.

2.0 out of 5 stars Offensively cute, 19 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got put off by a scrappy start that also assumes you will find the main characters enormously cute and likeable. CLearly they were for some people, but definitely not for me.

What finished me was the lad falling off a high building and having lots and lots of time to get his jet-pack operating. It's supposed to be live action, not cartoon in which physics does not apply.

And jet-packs were a simple enough idea, invented in science fiction and useless because the fuel runs out very quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea but I found it dull, 1 April 2016

This review is from: Class Of '61 (DVD)
This ought to have been a great film, but somehow it never gelled. I found the characters confusing and never particularly cared about any of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars An intelligent action movie, 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vexille (DVD)
I found this rather good. It shows people as complex and vulnerable. There are also scenes showing devastation, suffering and the complex choices that may need to be made.

Despite than anime format, it manages to have a lot of depths.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not actually a war film: a few minutes of ..., 31 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brothers of War (DVD)
Not actually a war film: a few minutes of improbable action. German troops are shown as shooting captured British soldiers - whatever crimes they commited elsewhere, this simply didn't happen.

The real failure is the characters, all of them truly repellant. Must of been scripted by someone who's scared of the countryside and decides that it's full of awful people, instead of a mix of all sorts.

There's apparently a plot, but really it did not interest me.

A decent continuation of the Babylon-5, better than Crusade. Pity it got nowhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Let's be artistic and explain nothing, 29 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leviathan (DVD)
Documentaries are supposed to tell you something. This was a set of images, bright lights that were at times recognisable. No way to learn who was doing what or why, unless you already knew. Pretentious trash!
