Oppenheimer : The Complete BBC Series [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Older presentation by today's standards - and some of the ..., 13 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Older presentation by today's standards - and some of the drama seems a tiny bit "stagey" - but this was set in the 1940s and fits in well with that time. Its the right length for the drama, and the fact that it is not condensed into a 1 or 2 hour film gives much deeper and more lifelike portrayal of the characters - without over-emphasis on the star-qualities which the main characters are famous for.

Well well worth purchasing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just get the book! You won't regret it., 13 Oct. 2015
What a terrific book!

A conversation in book form, really informal, really good at making you feel motivated. There is no pretension in this approach - nothing to make his idea seem too clever or special for anyone, or that by trying it you will become boringly serious and analytical about it - it is a brilliant book that pushes the juice diet as great and tasty, without the misery which seems a part of some other diets.

It has schedules for 3 / 5 / 15-day and more juice "reboots", with day-by-day menus and shopping lists the entire reboot. The recipes taste really fresh - and I had rarely touched a veggie meal before - and each has its own calorie / fat / salt / protein and everything else all counted for you, all detailed to help with making choices. If he were to write any diet book in this way, it would be a really easy diet to manage (even if the diet itself was useless) so it is a brilliantly written book - but that aside, as a diet, these recipes really gave me so much energy and it is easy to keep going.

2.0 out of 5 stars Concern over production of disc, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The film is a classic - however I found this version would not play on my DVD (only on the blu-ray). The aspect ratios available were too inconsistent to make for viewing, for which reason I must vote this product low.

4.0 out of 5 stars refreshing..., 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Eight Bells Toll [DVD] (DVD)
A fine story, refreshing for its lack of CGI and reliance on actual acting. The story works very well, intelligently, and in a style of behaviour which has dwindled but attractive.

4.0 out of 5 stars fine story, good production, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a classic film, well produced, and the slightly contrived acting is easily excused as the film has a good and strong flow to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars dont underestimate this, 8 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
someone asked the question:

"What would star trek have been like if we'd done this?"

- and now those refinements which cannot be made to the original are appearing by the ton. Characters are familiar - even *some* portions of the story - but the entertainment is in how the crew handles them in this new look. Very good CGI, great performances - with the characters quite at variance with their Shatner originals - and a film which keeps you guessing. I would recommend this whole-heartedly, even to the die-hard Shatner fans.
