  1.  Most impressive!


    I studied this play for my school leaving exams 30 years ago. We were informed by our (arrogant) English teacher that Coriolanus was Shakwspeare's "worst play". despite that criticism, I enjoyed studying it, and so was intrigued when I heard that this modern day version had been released.
    Yes, the Shakesperian dialogue can be hard to follow, but using the subtitles makes it easier. Some excellent performances in this film make it most enjoyable. Pity I knew what was going to happen in the end, though... ;-)

  2.  Very funny!


    Perhaps not as laugh out loud hilarious as some of the papers said, but this is still a very funny film! The mis-matched partners may be a cliche, but this film doesn't suffer for it. Probably the best film I saw this year, and the fact that I've been to several of the locations used added to my enjoyment of this film. Well worth seeing, and i can't wait for the DVD to be released!

  3.  Absolutely sublime.


    I had never seen a single episode of this show before watching this box-set. I had heard many good things about it, so i took the plunge and bought it. I was not disappointed. Ah absolute triumph of television making, one of the most bitter/sweet things I've ever watched. And William Shatner as the incredible Denny Crane (Denny Crane!) is a joy to watch. As I said in my title, absolutely sublime!

  4.  The Snapper


    Easily the best of the three Roddy Doyle adaptations. Some of the funniest one-liners I've ever heard in a film are here, and what a brilliant actor Colm Meaney is!

  5.  Jack Vettriano: A Life


    Now, personally, I know nothing about art, except that i know what I like. Vettriano's style appeals to me because it's simple and straightforward and does "exactly what it says on the tin". Vettriano's style of seedy sophistication appeals to me. If a Vettriano painting was a rock star, it would be bryan Ferry!
    One thing to be aware of about this product, though. It's billed here as being 380 or so pages when in fact it's only 190 or so. Keep this in mind. It's still a beautiful publication, though.

  6.  Best Bond film ever......


    Best Bond film ever, in my humble opinion, despite the fact that Connery cannot act!

  7.  Queen of Sheeba


    First of all, this episode is not in "real time", which makes it unusual for the Royle Family. Whereas there are several laugh out loud moments in this episode, ultimately, the storyline makes it somewhat depressing. I WILL watch this DVD again, but not as often as the "regular" ones...

  8.  Hellraisers - does exactly what it says on the tin!


    This book is not for the Politically Correct, nor does it claim to be. It's an account of the drinking and womanising exploits of Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O' Toole and Oliver Reed. I can't remember the last time I laughed at a book as often as this one. Despite all the carousing that went on, Harris, O' Toole and Reed come across as being likable, but Burton doesn't come across as well as the others. This book is perfect for any "men behaving badly" wannabes out there.

  9.  Best of all the Superman films


    As pointed out already, this product includes the Richard Lester version which is the one released at the cinema back in 1980/1981 (depending on which country you're in!), plus the reconstructed Richard Donner version which is how the film was originally meant to be.
    Now, taking the Lester version, I have to say I absolutely loved this film. I was 16 when it came out, and now at 43 it's still my second favourite film of all time (after The Quiet Man) for sheer entertainment and nostalgia value. This is probably only one of two or three films I actually wanted to applaud at the end in the cinema, it's that good!
    It's entertainment and fun from start to finish, with one of the best villains of all time in Terence Stamp's portrayal of General Zod.
    Regarding the Donner version, well, the basic story-line is much the same. It's very interesting to see the variations, though. However, because Lester's version is the one I've loved all these years, I'd give it my vote over Donner's.. Buy this for some terrific entertainment!

  10.  Star Trekkin' across the Universe!!!!!


    I agree with the previous two posts. This is the best of all the Trek films.
