Fantastic Series.

Ignore the other review. The sex is only really prevalent in the beginning and it doesn't even hold a candle to game of thrones. Just watch and be amazed as they keep the story focused and complete across 4 seasons. It has a great and satisfying ending too.

Watch the extended cut. It makes a difference. Unfortunately nothing can change the poor casting of Lex Luthor.

Weakest of the Marvel Franchise

Reviewed by on

If you're throwing politics or agenda's at me in my comic book movies, then I won't bother spending my money on them. Just the fact that they trying to get Black Panther nominated for a best picture Oscar tells you everything. It was the weakest Marvel film to date, only just pushing out Thor 2. No way it's Oscar worthy. Except for the sympathy diversity award. Not to mention it almost had the same budget as the Avengers Infinity War. Where did all the money go? The effect's were weak, the characters were weak (except the two villains) and the plot was somewhat weak as well. The only reason it did so well, was because it was a cultural sensation that pushed it's agenda.

The Blu-ray features fantastic sound and image (even if it only serves to show how cheap the effects are)

The End of Star Wars

Reviewed by on

A misguided mess of a movie that disregards everything that lead up to it and made the series what it is. After watching this... You start wondering why you were excited in the first place... RIP Star Wars. At least we will always have the original trilogy.

The Blu-ray is fantastic (quality wise) The Movie is an abomination. The special features are worth while but not at full price.

It's alright

Reviewed by on

If you're a DCEU superfan get this edition because this is probably one of the better movies in the series. The steelbook design isn't very exciting or fancy so it doesn't add much value to your steelbook collection either. The nice part is you get the 3D and 2D version in the same box.

Unthinkable? More like Unwatchable!

Reviewed by on

What a ghastly film: a radicalized terrorist plants several dirty bombs in the USA and is then very easily captured. Then he meets up with the mysterious H whose first task as his interrogator is to slice the terrorist's finger off. More pleasantries follow with water boarding and shocks being the interrogator's modus operandi.

You eventually begin to feel sympathy for the terrorist which is not the idea: the best part of this film is where someone mercifully switched the projector off.

If you prefer sharp banter and quick rejoinders over slapstick comedy's falling and spilling, Not Going Out is for you. The word play and double entendres are supberb. Don't expect a riveting plot with steep character development. It's all just for a laugh.

Worth Every Cent!!

Reviewed by on

A hilariously funny, Afrikaans, South African TV show from KykNet. This comedy is about the owner Ferdie Kruger and staff of the Fransen Hotel in Fransenburg. Struggling to keep this substandard hotel afloat in a small town, each episode is jam packed with sharp witted conversations and al sorts of shenanigans. Those with an appreciation of intellectual, side splitting comedy will really enjoy Hotel!!

I'm a great fan of Conan Doyle's creation Sherlock Holmes and was sceptical of this update but it is really very very good.
My original favourite pairing was Basil rathbone/Nigel bruce followed by Jeremy brett/Edward hardwicke but Benedict cumberbatch/Martin freeman have done a great modern version which may become a classic pairing.

Beware of that ending!

Reviewed by on

Not your typical thriller from the director of The Fugitive: a sergeant is assigned to pick up a 'package' in West Berlin. The 'package' turns out to be a soldier en route to a court martial who vanishes from the sergeant's custody after a skull-bashing free for all in an airport toilet and then the sergeant finds himself both the target of - and mixed up in - a shadowy government conspiracy to assassinate the Russian Premier.

A brilliant thriller starring Gene Hackman, Tommy Lee Jones, Joanna Cassidy and Dennis Franz.

Fun movie...Steelbook has a different cover

Reviewed by on

This is a fun movie through and through. Tonnes of references to the best decade for pop culture, the 80s, with the expected Spielberg heart thrown in. Differs quite a bit from the book, but the changes make sense in the context of film being a visual medium.

The steelbook is great but the artwork is not what is reflected by raru. The art is rather the easter egg on an 80s computer grid like surface. If you google the zavvi.co.uk 3d steelbook, you will see what you are getting.

the movie is not as bad as it is made out to be, but the DVD is a rip-off

Reviewed by on

In another available oprion, R233 buys you the movie with no English soundtrack, only in Italian. This "beauty" is currently a measly R25, and what can you do with R25 nowadays? Well, 2 liters of Coke and a packet of chips. A far better deal than buying any movie that is presented in Wrong Aspect Ratio. Horror of horrors. Cars ride around on wheels shaped like watermelons. Like a bad trip, man. Ursula Andress and Barbara Bach with distorted faces, ag no man! I bought it to see my decades-long THE SPY WHO LOVED ME heroine, and, well, I more or less expected there wouldn't be anything much, and there sure as hell ain't, but I wouldn't have complained, as I am used to collecting pretty actresses in so-so movies, I got plenty of those, but here we got a really really useless critter released by Blackhorse Video (boo!) an old movie, no frills, play movie, nothing more (I wouldn't have complained) but... Gee, people, "die mense met die lang koppe" that's because some foolish people the image must fill the TV screen instead of letterbox format. Stupid. Inane. Waste of time. R25 bucks only. But it's a straight waste.

The movie itself is straightforward, but I expected Ursula Andress to be an ice-cold flop. She's not. That said, the movie itself instantly got my sympathy vote as I struggled through the puerile presentation. I told myself I'd have found it kinda okay, especially at the bargain basement price. Look, it's from the early Seventies, in those days, hell, they aimed to fill the theaters with ardent Andress fans. And you know about the word play on Andress. Yes, there's some nice scenes, for, er, film buffs like me. But in the horrid distorted Wrong Aspect Ratio. Barbara Bach's open-mouthed laugh at the end of the movie just looks creepy.

Buy the more expensive option and try to follow it in original Italian. Yeah, you'd have a tough time (although the set-up is simple enough). Struggling through this just made me mad.

Distrubutors doing this kind of thing should be blacklisted. Boo to Blackhorse. Inferior useless shoddy DVD.

By the way, local release DARK COUNTRY same thing.
