The Wind and the Lion

Sadly, disappointing

(Edit) 02/10/2020

Although the film on the whole seemed a little dated, not surprising for the period in which it was made, there were some very well presented scenes. Unfortunately others were somewhat unbelievable.

Sean Connery was mis-cast as an Arab Sheikh I think, and was unable to totally suppress his Scottish accent.

Having watched a preview, I had expected better.

Catherine the Great

Enjoyable history

(Edit) 07/07/2020

So far so good, I've only watched the first disc yet and hope disc 2 is as good. My kind of film.. Characters scenery and plot. Although I agree with other reviewers concerning Helen Mirren's questionable age appropriate role.

The Virtues

Not what I expected

(Edit) 23/06/2020

The opening scenes were not convincing, I felt that the actors were add libbing and that there was no script with directed dialogue.

My appetite for watching further scenes was gone and I cannot make a valid judgement of the drama as a whole.

I have a great deal of respect for the actors and enjoyed their performances on many previous occasions.

I regret any negative impressions my limited judgement might generate that might have been better had I persevered to watch the whole drama.
