My Hero (2000)
re: Wonderful Comedy Show
A show that seems to get people angry if you dare to say you like it. Well, I'm going to do just that. I love this show. I really do.
When you get lines like this just peppered in throughout the show...
Dr. Piers Crispin: What are you doing tonight, Mrs Raven? Mrs. Raven: I'm taking the triplets to see the Exorcist. Dr. Piers Crispin: Hmmm. Terrific movie. Mrs. Raven: Who's talking about the movie?
You can see why I like it. The dialogue between the characters is sharp and cruel at times especially between Mrs Raven and Dr Piers Crispin, and also between George and his wife's parents.
All the characters here all play their part. The only one that weakens the show in my opinion is the baby that speak fluent English, etc, etc.
However failing that. All the characters are a joy, and for me makes me want to watch every last part of the show.
My favourite are Mrs. Raven and George "Thermoman" Sunday...They are so funny in different way.
This gets as 10 out 10 for me - just because of Mrs.Raven alone
One Foot in the Grave (1990)
re: Probably finest Situation Comedy Show ever made from the Uk! It was that Good
I pride myself as being the first person in my Household to watch the very first episode of "One foot in the grave". I was chuckling away to myself, for days and no one could see why?
It reminds me of the excitement that I had when I first went to the very first showing of Star Wars (1977) here in Ipswich Town, Englan. No one then could understand my joy at just seeing a Film.
One foot in the grave to me is tied with Black adder as probably finest ever TV situation comedy show.
However, the beauty with the show called "One foot in the grave" was that it was now. And every single person that lived in United Kingdom, had ever lived next to, was living next to (at this very moment), or had known some one like Victor Meldrew that gave the show that "Edge".
Forced to retire early from his job as a security guard, Victor Meldrew (Richard Wilson) struggles to cope with the problems that retired life throws his way alongside his long suffering wife, Margaret Meldrew (played by Annette Crosbie). It is no wonder he is grumpy, if it can go wrong it will.
However, it wasn't just that we liked watching Victor week in, week out. He was the star I grant you that. However, the other characters such as Patrick (Angus Deaton) and Pippia (Jannie Dovitsk) one his next door neighbours. Mr Nick Swainey (Owen Bremmen) his other next door neighbours; and the visits of Mrs Warboys (Dorren Mantle) were just as brilliant.
How they ever got through filming some of the plots and scenes without laughing, or keeping a straight face I will never, ever know.
The old lady getting into the wrong bed is one that never stops me from nearly falling of my chair. The plant/tree that was actually planted in the Toilet (Yes planted in the toilet) is another; the delivery of 200 Knomes to his house by mistake is another. The hair piece that got dropped into some the dough mix, and when Victor sliced the loaf of bread he got the hair piece in full!. Victor with glass pint "Superglued" to his head in another as he attempted to cool himself with it. Victor being beaten up by midgets is another... and so on and so on....
The scripts that were written for this were excellent, the timing and delivery of the jokes spot on.
Another thing was the ability of the writer to sometimes just have Victor on his own for an entire episode or at least with just one other person; and still remain equally as funny.This happened a quite a few occasions within the show.
This show got voted the 10th Best comedy show ever by the Uk audience. That was wrong,and many people now if they could voted again would put this show, much, much higher.
It showed you Britain how it really was during the 1990's to the 2000!
What a comedy show - that was sometimes very dark. But it still was funny. Its one of those show that you had to see at the time. And now with DVD releases - you still can. Go on buy one, and see what we British we always going on about with this comedy show.
Probably the greatest Situation Comedy show ever to come out of the Uk. It was that good.

re: Now if you call you self a Star Trex fan - this is a must see!
Another brilliant episode within the Star Trex saga. What a episode this one was.
Its one that you have to see if you are a true Star Trex FAN. Well written, believable, and enjoyable all at the time same with the cast from The Original Star Trex, and this present one - Deep Space Nine. Well worth watching, and a credit to all of the Star Trex series...
How they managed to merge the story and the characters between the original story line of "Tribbles" - with the Original Star Trex and together with a few of the staff of Deep Space Nine. I will never know.
I wondered who wrote the storyline for this excellent episode of Deep Space Nine? Wonderfully written.
Every one that likes Star Trex always votes for - "City on the Edge forever" - as the greatest Star Trex episode. Well take a look at this episode and always watch - "Let me be your last battlefield" episode within the Original Series of Star Trex - and you might change your mind.
Both are just as good as "City on the Edge forever".
10 out of 10 Brilliant.
I Am Legend (2007)
re: Not a bad movie ..indeed
I feel that Will Smith did a great job here with his character. He looked the part. He made you feel at times what it would like to be alone - supposedly in New York.
I just wish the script writers could have been more bolder. For instance when they introduced Anna and her child to the plot. Maybe the could have written into the story a flash back of how she survived. And how she came to save Robert Neville, when he was about to lose his life.
Maybe, they could have written into the plot things like. The stench of the place. All those dead bodies, bad food going off, etc....
They could have made it even more realistic by showing us eve more New Reels. People fighting for petrol. People fighting each other maybe to be allowed to go into home made bunkers, etc, etc. So don't blame Will Smith for their mistakes on that score. OK? Also I felt that the film could have been made longer. 1 X Hour and 40 minutes is far too short for a film like this. Scriptwriters come on! I still would love to see a Sequel to this film. I still think that we haven't seen the best of this film. A sequel might quench our thirst.
After all that though. The film had breath taking views of New York. Also I loved the "Fear" that Will Smith showed when he went after the dog that was chasing the deer into that building.
I like the fact that Will Smith, lost it when he was re-quoting the entire scene of Sherk. "You not very good with people now are you?" , says Anna, when she see's Will losing it.
I liked the deer scene at the start of the movie. Looking for fresh meat! Great add to the story. Also the fact that we got shown that he was guzamped by the Lion.He's about to shot the deer himself, and yet the Lion got there first!
I liked this movie. It was a lot better movie then a lot that came out in 2007, I can tell you. Just sit back and think, and I am sure that you will agree with that.
Quackodile Tears (1962)
re: Just brilliant
Daffy, has to be one of the best cartoon characters ever written. He is so sneaky, or he likes to think he is when he matches up against Buggs Bunny.
But he always seems to lose!
In this I just love his wife. Bossy, domineering and in charge. I just love her voice of Daffy wife in this cartoon flick. Who is she? Does anyone know who provides the voice of the wife of Daffy Duck in this cartoon? It is brilliant. They should have made this character take more part/s in more films with Daffy. She just makes me laugh when she warns Daffy, that if he doesn't sit on that egg that she will slap his face right off.
Just listen to her say that. Its just excellent
I also love the interplay between the two fathers as they chase each other for the egg they both believe to be their's... Wonderful, slapstick comedy....
Then end shot of both of the dads being disappointed with their new addition to the family is excellent as well..
A really good cartoon this is. I Liked it....
Please watch it if it comes on, or you have it...
re: This show is a hit...Its got that Quantum leap feel about it...Please read
Yes. I have been able to watch this. I won't tell you how, but I have. Its a deep subject really - collecting dammed souls (Which I thought I might be watching another version of Ghost Rider, or something.) However, this show was light and humorous.
It is a show that reminds me of one that used to be made here in England, way back in the 1960's - "Randle and Hopkirk Deceased". Anyone remember that show?????
This show has great humour between its characters, and the plot/s of the shows are unique and light in a dark way.
I like the way that they show is based within a Diy type store (The Workbench), giving it that "Down to Earth" feel about it...I love the way that the boss is always on to the 3 x slackers. Also making it realistic as well.
I also love the fact that all his friends want to help him (Sock and Ben), and do so.- when ever the boss (*The devil contacts - SAM)
He (SAM) has a love interest as well, who is incredible beautiful.(Andy). He likes her, she likes him, and yest not one of them have gone any further about it; and I also love the love/hate relationship between Sock and his old girlfriend - Josie. I would love these two feature in every episode, and maybe one day get back together. There are great in any episode they are in...
I love the actor who plays the DEVIL (Ray Wise). Good quips, good lines, nice tan...He is smooth, and Ray Wise plays his part well.
I still think the show mustn't get rid of the parents of these slackers. THey must be shown from time to time. To give the show reality as well. Remember, one of the quips is that they are all (*Or most of them - still at Home)
Maybe a future episode can be written whereby all 3 of them leave Home and get a flat between themselves (Sam, Ben and Sock) eventually.
And maybe a visit from the Other side (God) within this show would make it more interesting as well. Just to show that the devil doesn't and will not get it his own way all the time.
I really do think that we have another hit show in the making here. It got that feel Quantuam Leap feel about it. You know what I mean?
I hope the writers of Reaper read these comments.....
Bridge to Terabithia (2007)
re: Great Film .. that makes you feel young again
Lesley, Jess and the little sister just getting of the bus each day, from a day at school will all make us smile. All the people that have seen this film knows what I am on about.
A truly emotional film that really does take you back to your childhood.
Annasophia Robb, who played Leslie was the standout character for me in this film. She just made you smile at everything she did. Happy go lucky, fearless, kind and helpful at the same time.
I hope that one day they make a follow up film to this excellent movie. Whereby through "Ghost like" appearances she comes back to Jess. At which only Jess and the little sister can see her. No one else!
I would love for their to be a follow up movie. I am glad that I saw this movie.
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
re: One of the Films of the 1980's
Possibly the only other film film apart from this to make me shed tears at a Cinema was the "Green Mile". This is an excellent film that can be watched by everyone, or anyone. It even better for those that expected to be given to watch a typical a sci-fi movie. Many people who "hate" sci-fi movies will get the shock of their lives after seeing this.
The genuine "Love" for ET by the Children, at times seems as if they were not acting, but it was for real.
One of the films of the 1980's.
I recently watched another Sci-Fi classic recently. Its called "The Day the Earth Stood still"; and once again it shows that Sci-fi movies can go beyond their "special effects and blast them high" approach. Films such as these show true emotions; or mainly just make us think that much deeper on how to live our lives.
One of the great films of my generation. Yet people will not give credit to films like this, or the Green Mile. These films should be in the top 50 films for all time. Not struggling to get in there!
A film that will make you smile, cry and the smile again.
A must watch film, if you haven't seen it. And if you have, Watch it again soon.... And then marvel how good it was/is.
Transylvania 6-5000 (1963)
Buggs shows who's the boss! - Contains Spoiler
Another classic here. Yes, it is a classic. So simple are the gags, and yet they are so effective. Buggs is in top form here I can tell you. Just read this below.
But you really need to see the visual gag that is "tagged" along with this to get the re-impact....
But read below:
Count Bloodcount: I am a vampire. Bugs Bunny: Oh, yeah? Well, Abracadabra, I'm an umpire. Suddenly is wearing umpire clothes
Count Bloodcount: Hocus Pocus, I'm a bat. Turns into a bat
Bugs Bunny: I can be a bat, too. Hocus Pocus. turns into a baseball bat Count Bloodcount: - putting on glasses - You wouldn't hurt a bat with glasses, would you? Bat hits vampire
Just brilliant. Trust me you will like this cartoon. I wish that these were shown more often so that a new generation could see them. We were lucky in that we could see them on a regularly basis.....
Please any one else leave you views here about this classic
Heaven Can Wait (1943)
re: A film that you wish they would make today? - Contains Spoilers
Its a goodun. Trust me. Don Ameche (Henry Van Cleve) and Gene Tierney (Martha Van Cleve) really do put out excellent performances; but so do Charles Corburn (As Henry's Grandfather!) he is brilliant.
I also loved Martha' Parents. I just loved their characters.
It really makes you feel good inside watching these styles of film's.
I have just bought this film and watched it. I love it. I love the roguiest ways of Henry Van Cleeve. So does his wife Martha. Thats why she says with him.
I wish that they could have shown more of his rogue ways with other girls before he met Martha though. We get hints that he liked the ladies. But we never really see him in action.
That my only let down of this excellent movie. It's basically a film about love v lust. Love wins in the end.
If you want how to live your life. Watch this movie, and remember love always wins in the end.
I am glad that I have this film; but would younger viewers watch this film??? One's for the over 30's I think. But a wonderful, wonderful film all the same.
Please see it.
