Merlin [DVD]
Merlin [DVD]
Dvd ~ Sam Neill
Offered by best_value_entertainment
Price: £10.75

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting story, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Merlin [DVD] (DVD)
This is an epic 3 hour film (originally 3 x 1hour TV episodes). When I have watched long films in the past I have always been left thinking that there was about an hour of padding, but not with Merlin. Packed with stars it keeps your attention throughout the film. The story is of Merlin growing up into a wizard and turning down Queen Mab and her training. Merlin helps Arthur to build Camelot and win battles using Excalibur. Mab twists and plots are constantly working against Merlin especially to keep him apart from his love, Nimue.

There are many tales and stories about Merlin, this has to be one of the most captivating.

Very good picture and sound quality on the DVD


Spy Who Came in From the Cold [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Spy Who Came in From the Cold [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless and tireless, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read a few Le Carre books, but the only one I really took to was The Spy Who Came in From the Cold. When I finished it I just had to watch the film. I have yet to see a film that is better than the book, but this came close to being as good as. This is a real gritty and raw spy thriller that was captivating and intriguing. One of those films that you need to pay attention to, which is easy to do as you will be drawn in. This is an old film, but one of those that never dates.

Very good DVD quality sound and picture. Just bear in mind that this is a region 1 DVD so you will need a region free or USA player to watch this.


Cheers - Complete Season 4 [DVD] [1985]
Cheers - Complete Season 4 [DVD] [1985]
Dvd ~ Ted Danson
Price: £11.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Dated, but still has me laughing, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Woody is now brought into the Cheers bar and sets himself up as the dullard of the bar and the butt of many jokes, but he soon becomes integral to the cast and remains throughout the rest of the shows.

The fourth season was as good as any other and has so many timeless gags, Cliffy and Normisms!

If you are a fan of Cheers then you are just going to need to get this one for the collection. I managed to pick this up on Amazon for £8, but price fluctuations can put it a lot higher. Try adding it to your wish list and wait to see if it drops again - they frequently do.

Sound and picture quality are both very good for DVD


Lee Evans: Xl Tour - Live [DVD]
Lee Evans: Xl Tour - Live [DVD]
Dvd ~ Lee Evans
Offered by Qoolist
Price: £3.28

5.0 out of 5 stars never gets old, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
10 years on and Lee Evans still has me in stitches. This tour, like all others before and since is in his usual high octane verbal outpouring of quips and stories of his day to day observations that never fail to cheer me up. It is such a shame that he is now retiring.

Video and audio quality re very good for DVD and this is currently priced at £3, which is an absolute bargain

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money, 26 April 2015

This review is from: Keep On (Audio CD)
Now this has dropped to £2 it is an absolute bargain for such a good third album.

Any Fan of Will Young is going to find plenty of tracks on this album to enjoy. They do not age. Just a shame that he has gone quiet recently.

As expected from a CD, the sound quality is superb even on louder volumes.


Michael [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Michael [DVD] [1997] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Offered by rmdcoleford
Price: £4.43

5.0 out of 5 stars Warming tale, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Michael is an angel who has come back to earth. A few journalists keen on the story pick him up to take him to take him to Chicago. When they meet him they realise that it isn't a joke and that he really is an angel - based on the 2 big wings sticking out of his back.

The trip back to Chicago is life changing for the journalists who also discover that Michael is not the kind of angel they expected. He likes smoking, drinking and women and wants his fill before he returns to heaven.

Good quality picture and sound for DVD - be mindful that this is a region 1 (USA) DVD and you will need a multi-region or USA region DVD player to watch it.


The Day Of The Jackal [DVD] [2010] [2003]
The Day Of The Jackal [DVD] [2010] [2003]
Dvd ~ Edward Fox
Offered by Leisurezone
Price: £3.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Good old fashioned police work, 26 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading Frederick Forsythe's book I just had to watch the film. Not a scratch on the book, but it does well to capture the overall essence of the book.

The Jackal is a code-name for an assassin who is hired to kill the president of France by a bunch of disgruntled foreign legion members. He is pursued by an astute detective once the plot is discovered, but will he be able to stop the murder from taking place?

Not as gripping as the book, but still a film that will keep your attention throughout. Considering that this film was completed in the early 70's it still has a lot of mileage today. They don't use computers, mobile phones, e-mails, electronic surveillance, CCTV, GPS trackers or re-aligning satellites to get aerial footage - just good old fashioned coppering!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming film, 26 April 2015

This review is from: Il Postino [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
Picture and sound quality for this DVD is good. It is a heart warming Italian film about a poorly educated stand-in postman that learns about poetry during his daily routine deliveries to a poet that has just moved into the town. He is helped along this journey with the aid of the poet and using his new found poetic and verbal skills he engages with a beautiful woman that he is falling for.

With English subtitles that are easy to read and do not interfere with the overall picture.

An excellent value for money collection - well it was when I got it for £10.

For DVD the picture and sound quality is good. Although I prefer Blu-Ray, the cost was 4 times more and I didn't think it was worth it.

This is a great way of watching the progression of Rocky Balboa through his fighting career, the highs and lows and the way his family builds up and falls apart. Some of the films are a bit dated now, but there is still a lot of appeal left in them yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent app, 26 April 2015

This review is from: WhatsApp (App)
Wouldn't work with my phone Samsung S5 or Tab S, so I had to get it from the play store. It is a superb app for sending pictures, text, videos, voice messages and now phone calls. I am with O2 and the signal quality where I live and work is non-existent so I am pretty much dependent upon this app for others to reach me when I am connected to wireless.

I would recommend getting this (and other apps) from the play store. I have noticed on many apps I have got from Amazon that they are sometimes a few versions behind the latest copy.

An excellent app if you can get it to work on your device
