3.0 out of 5 stars Depressing but makes you think, one for the middle aged who may want to see a pair of nutters lash out and kill a few folk., 20 July 2017

This review is from: Sightseers [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
There are some enjoyable moments in this but they are sparce, the main ones being one or two choice of music placed in the film, and the scenery and the acting was very good. However this is predominantly a depressing and negative film, although you could say that its then more true to life, however the serial killing seems to take into the surreal or the plain nasty, even if meant as black comedy. Edgy and tries to be a bit different yet is dull and boring in places.
It seems being National lottery funded they were restricted and had to play it down and not go too far regards the humour. Could have been funnier, nevertheless it does keep things real and for the most part it does take you on a trip, if only one where the sightseers are fed up with life and their own mediocrity and would rather kill and jump off a bridge than try and mend their own broken lives.

Not as good as the first. Some interesting and amusing moments. If you enjoyed the first, then this is a must, in fact it does deserve a go. 3.5 is a better rating given its a sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Railway man, but is well produced, maybe a bit too well in places., 20 July 2017

Good, but not as good as the Railway man. There just seems to be some disjointedness to this, although it is far better than many war films produced. Worth a try, but just seems a bit wooden in places.


The Maid and the Queen: The Secret History of Joan of Arc
The Maid and the Queen: The Secret History of Joan of Arc
by Nancy Goldstone
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars An alternative perspective concerning how or why Joan was taken seriously by the relatives of the Dauphin., 20 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good, but a bit hard going. If you want an alternative view of the history of Joan then this could be it. Really tries to show that the myth of Joan was perpetuated well before and was possible only through a certain well known work of literature at the time, and by the royal relatives of the Dauphin who needed him to remain in power. Credible, but perhaps a bit one sided. Worth a try if you want all perspectives on the events and how they possibly came about so conveniently. Still not enough about Joan. But the title does state secret history, but it should have said secret political events surrounding the rise of the myth of the maid of lorraine.

The Virgin Warrior: The Life and Death of Joan of Arc

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well written, really brings the legend to life, and yet we are still mystified by her doings and victories., 20 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recommended. One of the better books written about Joan. You can tell a lot of passion and research has gone into this.


Sully: Miracle On The Hudson [DVD + Digital Download] [2017]
Sully: Miracle On The Hudson [DVD + Digital Download] [2017]
Dvd ~ Tom Hanks
Price: £6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Well produced film, keeps to the facts, and just gels., 20 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good film. Goes smoothly just like the controlled sea landing made by the pilot.
Okay so there are moments that are typical emergency-crisis all pull together cliche, but doesn't over do it to the point you want to throw up.
A film which if you are especially interested in watching professional expertise pitted against management know-it-alls who take pride in their job of meddling and basically trying to prove negligence, then this will satisfy.
Recommended, but not essential viewing. Its real life events, portrayed in a way which tries and for the most part manages to bring to life again. Could have been a disaster if the pilot was a by the letters do what the control tower tells you, but from experience he knew both engines were fubar.


Mozart: Complete Works (Includes CD_Rom with texts & libretti)
Mozart: Complete Works (Includes CD_Rom with texts & libretti)

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential collection for all mozart fans; not the best quality cd's, but its all here the greatest composer of all time., 28 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a grand box set indeed. And would recommend very strongly to any Mozart liker, i.e. anyone who is interested in even a small amount of his work. For some of this stuff is kept hidden and is a must for all those who enjoy his music but cannot afford it!!!

The discs are not the greatest quality, so I am not sure how well they will withstand to repeat playing, as a couple seem to refuse to play at all. But overall this is great if you can get at a good price as I did second hand. I think a price of around 125 pounds these days is a more than reasonable RRP to expect to pay. So lets hope this magnificent music will be made available to the masses for once.
