Kate & Leopold [DVD]
Kate & Leopold [DVD]
Dvd ~ Meg Ryan
Price: £4.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle romance with a comedic edge, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kate & Leopold [DVD] (DVD)
We saw part of the film (on TV) some years ago and remembered the title. We bought it on spec and it was as good as we remembered. Good acting, story line and sets; even New York looked good in both centuries. Other family members have now borrowed it and they share our opinion that the film is a rom-com with style.

This review is from: Hancock [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
A good idea that could have been developed more. It was OK to watch but the family were not over impressed and has gone into the archives for one of those days when the TV is dire and you need something to lighten things a bit. Definitely not Will Smiths best, but possibly not his worst either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wearing well and still fun, 2 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like the theme of the film this is holding up very well for its age and it still makes us smile and laugh. Unlike many films with sequels these are both equally good and having the same actors in key parts allows for the key characters to develop and the story to flow seamlessly from the first film to the second.

Good music and Lyrics, evil villains and a horse with style and the lead characters were good as were the graphics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected, 6 April 2013

This review is from: Green Lantern [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
I had an open mind on this one and did not have particularly high expectations but I was pleasantly suprised. The boys loved it and I had a very good laugh about a typical brash cocky American who gets slapped down but as they say comes good in the end. There were also some great out of this world characters who actually often had better lines and the star wars type characters were actually more believable and a lot less annoying.


Clint Eastwood Collection [DVD] [2007]
Clint Eastwood Collection [DVD] [2007]
Dvd ~ Clint Eastwood
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars This set will never disappoint, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I took me back to my distant youth and it was fun to watch Clint creating what are perhaps some of the most memorable western characters I can recall. Having watched these again and also a couple of John Wayne films recently I think Clint wins out. The music, atmosphere and stark scenery, as well as the sparse dialogue in the spagetti films put then in a class of their own. Certainly violent but not compared to more modern films and it does seem to suit the plot and the period.

3.0 out of 5 stars The kids loved it, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good set of films with a variable resaponse from the family. The kids loved the battle scenes in all of them and the magic in Clash of the Titans but found Alexander a bit too long. I have to admit that I agree. For sheer fun Clash was the best and Alexander came last. The boys have already played CotT several times and we have watched Troy twice, noticing different things with each viewing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny sad but uplifting film about a smal town with a big heart, 6 April 2013

This review is from: Big Eden [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
A funny sad and finally uplifting film about a small town with a big heart, and specifically 4 people who over the period of one summer and autumn come to terms with who they are and find that love and friendship will support and sustain you. Altough gentle and relaxed the writing allows characters to develop and grow and you become involved in their lives and want the best for them. A good cast with excellent acting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mini masterpiece, 25 Dec. 2012

First saw this on the TV when we were babysitting and thankfully it did not wake up. On second viewing on the dvd I was just as impressed. I do not think that I can fault it
