5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Bucaneers, 29 April 2017

This review is from: The Firm [DVD] (DVD)
Directed by Alan Clarke, and starring a young Gary Oldham. This brilliant movie (1998) is about football hooligans. Bexy (Oldman) confesses o his wife that he can never give up football hooliganism, because he is addicted to the buzz of it. Unflinching movie with many scenes of violence.

This review is from: Saints And Soldiers [DVD] (DVD)
Dont believe the hype. I'd rather watch another episode of 'Band of Brothers' again, or even better, i'd rather watch ''Saving Private Ryan'' again,or 'Thin Red Line'...and the list goes on. This 'movie' is amateurish and the script is laugh-out-loud bad. Characters are stereotyped e.g. Kirby Heyborne’s all too fake posh English accent as he plays the stranded RAF pilot the American GIs pick up along the way.
Watch this dvd if you have too much time on your hands e.g. if you are in prison and you have access to entertainment like we have in our HMS prisons (UK). Enjoy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute rubbish, 28 April 2017
More tosh from the same director(Saints and Soldiers). Where does the director get his funding from? I watched this after awarding the original movie 2 stars. This is worse. Almost like a comedy. Clunky dialogue, poor action scenes, rubbish acting, and yet i still watched it. I recommend this dvd movie if you are resting in prison, an this is all they can offer you to kill 90 minutes of your time. Otherwise, don't bother. Its like a very lame, poor production of the worst 'Band of Brothers' episode ever made. Avoid.

Brilliant movie about the multi-cultural pitt....erm sorry i meant paradise i live in -London. Brilliant story, fantastic acting, and well directed by the talented director. This really is brave movie-making. If you think Albert Square (Eastenders) is a fair depiction of multicultural London, then don't bother with this fine movie.

Saints and Soldiers - The Void [DVD]
Saints and Soldiers - The Void [DVD]
Dvd ~ Adam Gregory
Offered by skyvo-direct
Price: £4.71

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother with this 'movie', 28 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It almost worked. It seemed to have a decent sized budget (proper tanks, weapons, and more importantly action scenes). More importantly the actors turned in a fine performance, however they were crippled with the clunky dialogue/script. Stereotypes abound, examples include the American soldier with an Irish name has to listen to another American soldier sing "Danny Boy". Also there is the black American soldiers who are treated badly and then the audience/film viewer gets a monologue about the KKK and a lynching years ago.

This movie starts off well with the USA trying to knock out a small German group. Not much action, and too much contrived dialogue. Anyways, the Americans (against all odds) knowing that hundreds of Allied forces lives are at stake work together to fight a desperate battle against the greatest odds they have ever faced.
2/10


Making It Happen: Fred Goodwin, RBS and the men who blew up the British economy
Making It Happen: Fred Goodwin, RBS and the men who blew up the British economy
by Iain Martin
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Where did he get that name?, 17 April 2017
Where did he get that name? Fred 'the shred' Goodwin got that name by sacking thousands of his employees. Nasty/nice guy Fred was not too clever when he was in charge of one of the biggest banks in the world- Royal Bank of Scotland. Not only was he found out to be incompetant in his job, he also had a mistress- a colleague of Goodwin's at RBS. The lady's identity remains guarded by a legal injunction to this day. Its no wonder his wife left him.
The 'genius' Goodwin bought a rotten apple- Dutch Bank in financial dire straights. Then he went for the sub-prime mortgages investments (USA). Thats what started the financial melt down in 2008. But hey, who cares? Let us poor taxpayers bail him and his colleagues, and his bank out. Problem sorted. Very insightful book. Well recommended.
8/10


Wolf [DVD]
Wolf [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great special effects, 17 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wolf [DVD] (DVD)
Thanks to this wonderful website i stumbled across this brilliant movie from the 1990's. As you can guess from the picture on the dvd box, Jack Nicholson turns into a wolf/ werewolf. His lover Michelle Pfeiffer tries to protect him from himself. James Spader plays the villian. Brilliant director, great performances from the stellar cast, and a atmospheric soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.
The movie loses a star because i thought Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer were not believable as lovers due to the age difference. I know its a minor flaw in an otherwise perfect movie. 8/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violent movie, 17 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killer Inside Me [DVD] (DVD)
I stumbled across this dvd on this website. I bought it because of the low price and the strong/stellar cast. The movie is violent. Casey Affleck comes across as a nice, gentle, polite, mild-mannered man. In this movie we see his murderous/ psycopath side. The scenes of violence are gut-wrenching. This is not a rom-com; it is a brutal, violent movie based in a small town in 1950's America.
The actors turn in great performances, the soundtrack is enjoyable, and the story (and script) are second to none.

1.0 out of 5 stars You cannot teach Stand-Up comedy, 17 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Who is Logan Murray? I read most this book in the library, and I learned nothing from it. I took part in the Comedy Store (King Gong) competitions in London and Manchester half a dozen times in as many years. I failed to make it to the final. I have dozens of Stand-Up comedy cds (Bill Hicks, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Dwight Slade et al...) and i have many Stand-Up comedy dvds (Lee Evans, Dara O'Brian, Ross Noble, Frankie Boyle, Denis Leary , and the list goes on..)
I have watched and listened to Stand-Up comedy for years, and i fail to see how somebody can read a book or study stand-up comedy, and then become a success on stage. If you don't have an inner voice, then chances are you are wasting your time. If you cannot write your own original jokes, then you are going to fail.
Its ridiculous to think you can read a book (penned by a comedian - Logan Murray- never heard of him) about Stand-Up comedy and convince yourself that you will be a successful stand-up comedian in the near future. Like i said, you need to write your own original jokes, and no amount of books in the world will teach you how to write an original funny joke.
Call me a cynic, methinks most of the 5 * reviews for this book were written by Logan Murray's students- he teaches Stand-Up comedy. I award this book 1* because its a good way to procrastinate.....waste time instead of going to an open Mic session and doing your 5 or 10 minute routine in the back room of a dingy pub.
