5.0 out of 5 stars As a concept it sound dull, a "mockumentary" set in an admin office, 15 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think this show completely passed anyone by but I must admit that I only ever saw maybe one or two episodes when it was first aired.
Some fifteen years later and I finally got round to watching this box set and I can see what all the fuss was about.
As a concept it sound dull, a "mockumentary" set in an admin office, not much to entice many there but if you haven't seen it then give it a go, the characters are excellent and it isn't long before you forget they are all acting and you actually get drawn in to the excruciatingly embarrassing situations and conversations that unfold.
Also included is the two part Christmas special and some hilarious bonus materials which tie it all up nicely.

5.0 out of 5 stars I always loved this awful movie, 5 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always loved this awful movie, in a post apocalyptic world a guy with a talking motorbike is hailed as the chosen one by a group of so called mystics wrapped in bedsheets to recruit a small army to overthrow an evil despot played by Donald Pleasence.
Robert Ginty plays the hero in this Italian Mad Max rip off and I must admit, its action all the way, there is never a dull moment.
I had this movie for years on VHS but this German DVD version claims to be "un-cut".
All the way through I was looking for something I hadn't seen before and was about to give up when it got near the end and couldn't believe what I was seeing, there is a big musical number reinserted at the end and all the heroes have a mass sing song...I was speechless.
The sound and picture quality are the best I have seen for this movie and although it is a German disc it has English audio options.
The extras are actually quite good as well, the original director gives an interview and he has some very funny recollections of making the film.
A great disc of a more complete version of a highly enjoyable turkey.

2.0 out of 5 stars ... seen B movie the picture quality and sound are excellent on this Bluray, 25 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a little seen B movie the picture quality and sound are excellent on this Bluray.
In the UK it was originally titled "Sewage Baby" or "Sewer Baby" and its really nice that these kind movies are getting a release but I must admit, I doubt if I will watch this one again as it has very limited locations (actually only one), poor special effects and was lacking some much needed humour.
All in all it was worth at the price and I'm glad I finally got to see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lewis Collins heads a great cast in this action packed romp, 25 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Often ridiculous but always entertaining, Lewis Collins heads a great cast in this action packed romp.
A small army of soldiers for hire head into the Golden Triangle to shut down the opium operations and destroy everything and everyone in sight.
And that's it!
Great fun for a rainy Sunday afternoon, its like a cross between Rambo and Thunderbirds, honestly, you get a mix of loads of jungle live action and then when its time to destroy something it switches to model and miniature work, some of it works but even the bits that don't (watch out for the car chase through a road tunnel in Hong Kong bit) are really enjoyable.
The picture quality and sound are pretty decent but I was hoping the extras would have English subtitles but I don't think they do.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Alien Sex Fiend churn out yet another compilation.
You get four albums each with a few bonus tracks but they all just come in a paper sleeve with the original album track listing and art work.
A small booklet is included.
If you are just getting into the band then these releases are a good buy but if like me you already have all the albums its hardly worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars trains and automobiles are destroyed but I think they work fine and some of them are quite convincing, 23 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kommando Leopard (Blu-ray)
Apart from the cheesy smaltzy song at the end, this is a ripping action thriller set in the steamy jungles of a war torn who knows where.
Lewis Collins plays the leader of a rebel army bent on over throwing the corrupt government and blowing up just about every building, vehicle and person he sees.
Klaus Kinski is the hired mercenary in charge of weeding him and his people out.
A lot of model work going on as planes, trains and automobiles are destroyed but I think they work fine and some of them are quite convincing.
No CGI rubbish here!
Bluray picture and sound quality are about as good as you are gonna get.

3.0 out of 5 stars ... from the early eighties so it was filmed the good old fashioned way with real stunts, 23 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its from the early eighties so it was filmed the good old fashioned way with real stunts, real explosions and none of these rubbishy CGI cheats.
Roy Scheider plays a hotdog helicopter pilot for the police department who has been tasked with testing out a new super helicopter.
He uncovers a secret plot and is framed for murdering his partner to keep him quiet.
It doesn't work as you might expect.
Great action and a very decent cast.
Bluray is excellent picture and sound quality and some of the documentary extras are very good too.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Final Programme [DVD] (DVD)
Wasn't sure what to expect from this one.
It's a very quirky and odd sci fi thriller with more than a touch of British humour.
Our hero is a playboy scientist who has been tasked with finding his drug addict brother who has gone on the run with some micro-film which contains research material that can alter human life and create immortality.
The backdrop is a future Europe that has plunged into anarchy as governments have fallen and law and order are gone.
If you like flicks like Britannia Hospital or A Clockwork Orange this could be for you.
Very decent release from Network with good sound and picture quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Jackie Chan's finest movies in great picture quality and sound, 23 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of Jackie Chan's finest movies in great picture quality and sound.
I have noticed that some of the re -releases of his movies have been re-dubbed and quite badly using voice actors that just don't seem right but this one is the original version with the often hilarious original English dubbing.
Jackie is off into the desert wastelands this time to track down some Nazi hidden treasure in an Indianna Jones style adventure with some of the finest stunt work and martial arts fight sequences ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best version you are going to get of this movie ..., 23 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Chilling (VHS Tape)
Probably the best version you are going to get of this movie but unfortunately the sound and picture quality are still rather naff.
Pan and scanned from an old VHS cassette some people won't find this watchable but I have searched far and wide for a decent copy and I think this is the best I have found.
Once your eyes adjust you can settle down and enjoy a lost, little seen zombie flick which was way ahead of others such as "Dead Snow" and all the other "Nazi" living dead excursions.
