|Death and dreams [DVD] |
by Graham, Caroline
In "Death and Dreams" the murderers are three siblings, one who giggles while watching her brother murders people. All three are young enough to be in school, very thin of body, and dedicated to killing everyone they envision of taking their time away from their mother. They even murder their father because he wants "alone" time with his wife, their mother. Well, the acting is good and the plot is ludicrous. posted Apr 23, 2014 at 7:09AM
|The enraged : a Jonathan Quinn novel |
by Battles, Brett.
I have been a fan of Brett Battles but this latest one, ’The Enraged" was just too much for me to stay with it. I was bored, uninspired by too much detail without action. posted Apr 22, 2014 at 7:01PM
|The boys from Brazil [videorecording]
The "Boys from Brazil", written by Ira Levin is quite a good film and maybe even more ominous for our future when looked at from 2014 instead of 1978. James Mason ws 69, Lilli Palmer was 64, Lawrence Olivier was 72, and Gregory Peck was 62. Only Lilli Palmer retained any semblance of youth. All are now dead. Jeremy Black played the young Adolf Hitler and thankfully today is not trying to act. In 1978 the world had not yet heard about Al Qaeda but they knew about the Nazis. Both are haters of anyone who wants to live a life of personal choice. posted Apr 21, 2014 at 4:45PM
|A rare bird [videorecording] |
by Laughland, Nicholas.
In "A rare bird" we certainly see an episode that literally is meant for people doing more than just watching the birds. I have bad mouthed the performances of Neil Dudgeon but maybe the real problem is the producer, the director, and the writers of some of these episodes? But no matter who is playing Barnaby the murders get more ridiculously violent episode by episode. I am probably just bored with the same weekly dribble of American television murders and have turned to the British for relief. I am still waiting. posted Apr 20, 2014 at 5:21PM
|The sleeper under the hill [videorecording] |
by Laughland, Nicholas.
In "The sleeper under the hill" we see the continued erosion of Midsomer Murders after the exit of Tom Nettles as Tom Barnaby, Jane Wymark as his wife, and Laura Howard as his daughter. The replacement Barnaby needs his own replacement for this series to regain any real interest for the viewing public. It was the unique interaction between Tom Barnaby and the various murders that I enjoyed. Now I wonder why didn’t the producers pick someonelse than Neil Dudgeon for the title character. posted Apr 19, 2014 at 6:25AM
