WWII: The Long Road Home

Oh dear!!!

(Edit) 28/03/2021

Awful, and I love war films. I wish I had read the reviews beforehand. As other reviewers have said, the acting and cinematography are really bad and amateurish. It really is like something that has been made in somebody's garden with an iPhone....

Last Days in the Desert

Disappointing.......

(Edit) 20/11/2020

I wanted to like this because of the subject matter and I also like Ewan McGregor as an actor. However, the story never really went anywhere and I kept waiting for something to happen. The whole film felt flat and even the scene were a man fell off a cliff did not really raise the excitement or interest levels. I couldn't recommend this at all!!!

Paul: Apostle of Christ

Not an easy watch......

(Edit) 11/06/2020

This is not an easy watch and is pretty dark through most of the film. The Romans under Nero are on a rampage against the Christians and Paul is imprisoned throughout. I nearly gave up on it but I am glad I persevered. This is mainly because of the scene where Luke is preparing a group of imprisoned Christians to meet their death and I found that what he had to say could still be used by severely mistreated Christians today, for example those under persecution by so-called IS.

The Great War

Disappointing

(Edit) 12/04/2020

I really wanted to like this film but the quality of the acting and scenes put me off and I could not watch it to the end. The most interesting part for me was learning just how many men the American hierarchy were prepared to sacrifice when they knew the war's end was imminent.

Long Way Down Series

A bit of a whinge fest.......

(Edit) 15/02/2020

I really enjoyed Long Way Round and had also watched this when it first came out. However, after watching the first four episodes again on Disc 1 I got fed up with the guys going on and on about how terrible it was. It was mainly the miles per day that seemed to be bothering them but they appeared to be far from blameless for that. I really like the guys when they are more positive and I will watch the new show going up the Americas, but for this one I'm watching no more, and it's a NO from me!!!
