Green Book

Warm, dramatic and amusing - great entertainment

(Edit) 29/04/2021

Based on a true story, which gives more satisfying dramatic impact, this role reversal tale – a black classical musician and his white driver/bodyguard from the Bronx – is set on the road, touring cities in the USA, including several in the deep south. It is an  excellent evening’s entertainment which leaves you heartwarmed and smiling.

Brooklyn

Thoughtful and compelling to the end.

(Edit) 22/03/2021

Beautifully acted and slowly developing romantic drama of a young girl leaving Ireland for New York. My husband and I both enjoyed it even though his taste is more action and explosions.

One of those few I would view again when my list gets low.

Seven Years in Tibet

Disc seemed to be a knockoff

(Edit) 09/11/2020

Great movie - just wish we could have had the subtitles and the sound clearer. Hard to make out the dialogue. No subtitles available in spite of what it says on the summary on your website. Ditto format. - this was an oldschool square presentation!

Went online and viewed the trailer - MUCH clearer dialogue! And proper size on the screen too.

Sorry to put this in a review. We thought the movie was very good. I couldn't make out how to contact you with this complaint and could do with some guidance as this is the third time we've had a less than great experience with the running of the dvds.

Am I right in supposing some fiendish person has nicked the proper disc and replaced with a quick home made recording? Of course you can't check by running every disc that comes back.

Loving Vincent

A beautiful, talented film

(Edit) 28/10/2020

I really enjoyed the beautiful images. It was a superb piece of art - a selfless creation by a very large number of people in collaboration, technical, artistic and financial.

A good mystery story too!

Roman Holiday

Thoroughly pleasing and amusing.

(Edit) 03/07/2020

Having seen Spartacus, then Trumbo, we were interested to follow up the film for its connection with the scriptwriter's political troubles during the McCarthy era.

We were rewarded with a thoroughly amusing piece of lighthearted entertainment which made us both feel happy. One we'd happily watch again sometime.

Spartacus

Watch Trumbo first. A significant movie.

(Edit) 16/06/2020

Long and a bit clunky but enjoyable, so long as the neat hairstyles don't irritate you.

More particularly, an extra ingredient is its significance from a 1940-60s USA political point of view - McCarthy etc, then black equal rights. Until I re-watched recently, then saw Trumbo, I hadn't realised what an important film it was, for its time. And still is, actually.

A useful antacid for the indigestion caused by the present USA political administration.

You'll have to devote an evening, as it is so long, but time does not drag and there's a useful half time to fetch the coffee and whisky!
