Murder Collection [VINYL]
Murder Collection [VINYL]
Price: £26.53

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection of new recordings of old favourites., 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Murder Collection [VINYL] (Vinyl)
Claudio Simonetti's version of "Goblin" features his "New Goblin" and "Daemonia" band mates Bruno Previtali and Titta Tani and "Daemonia" bassist Federic Amorosi. This is a collection of new recordings of classic Goblin material. There is a solid retro analog feel to all the recording which reproduced the original tracks but add new elements and performance flourishes. It remains true to the inventive sounds of the original Goblin while adding some of the harder rock rhythm section of the New Goblin's 2013 EP and Daemonia's "Zombi/Dawn of the Dead" recording. Some exquisite musicianship throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a good adaptation, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE LEGEND OF SWEENEY TODD (DVD)
This may be a TV movie but it is well executed. The lead actors Ben Kingsley and Joanna Lumley seem to revel on the over the top roles they are given. This follows the classic penny dreadful and melodramatic play plot and not the revenger tragedy infused version from the musical. This is ably directed by Oscar winning film director John Schlesinger (Midnight Cowboy, Marathon Man)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD of Hitchcock's first full feature., 10 April 2014

This review is from: The Pleasure Garden [DVD] (DVD)
This is not the kind of Hitch film you are used to. It is well filmed and show signs of some of the cinematic innovations Hitchcock would later employ in his more widely known films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful collection of Sherlock Holmes episodes and films starring Jeremy Brett. The first series features David Burke as Watson and the remaining series and films feature Edward Hardwicke. The writing, acting and direction are top notch. These are the definitive dramatizations for Doyle purists. Brett had a few periods of illness while making these shows and it is obivious at times in his appearance. It is a real shame that he passed away before the remaining stories and novels could be filmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the episodes are complete and uncut. There are a few good extras too. This is a great series. The first few series (with Maddy") are the best with The Black Canary and excellent feature length special. If you love impossible looked room mysteries there is nothing better that Jonathan Creek.

This original story is great. Acting is of a high level. It is very atmospheric and well shot. Looks like a proper film not just a TV movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Atmospheric version of Holmes horror/supernatural mystery classic, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The supporting cast is uniformly great. Holmes and Watson are OK. This is a darker version of the story with some more horror touches than previous versions.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting idea., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good movie. It is an interesting and different take on Sherlock Holmes. At times it can get confusing. This is a good quality DVD transfer in widescreen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic horror legends unite, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sometimes scarey, often hilarious send-up of these horror greats. Based on the novel and play Seven Keys to Baldpate. I have had this on video tape and loved it since it was a new release. This DVD is a great upgrade. A nice widescreen transfer and a decent, if a little kooky, feature length documentary about the making of the film. Very good value.
