Comment on DVD Review: In Your Dreams by BOB

Fri, 26 Nov 2010 11:48:54 +0000

after working for the Hodari's ( producers ) I can see why this film flopped. Surely you need a sense of humour in order to produce a ROM com, exactly what these 3 are lacking. Jean I know exactly what you mean! If the Hodari's did produce this in order to get their feet in the film industry door ( or to rub their ego's!) I am so glad this flopped. Keep to selling dodgy computer parts!

Comment on DVD Review: Callan – The Monochrome Years by Rob J

Sat, 20 Mar 2010 11:30:01 +0000

A wonderful series. The early episodes are a marvellous reminder of great acting and scripts can compensate over budget constraints. What struck me was the overall mood of bleakness that prevades the programme, I doubt very much it would be given the green light to go ahead. The mood was closer to Eric Ambler and Greene than Bond/Department S/Our Man Flint etc... Even "Spooks" which was a good attempt at the spygame had actors who could appear on the covers of GQ and Vanity Fair. The acting is flawless. Much has been said about Woodward and rightly so, but I had forgotten that the late great Russell Hunter was a magnificent actor. His role as "Lonely" is the finest portrayal of a person on the bottom rung of the social ladder to appear on UK tv. My one regret is that there isn't enough of the early monochrome episodes. It beggars belief that time and time again, the BBC and ITV erased classic tv programmes of this period. What the hell were they were thinking of ? Perhaps, the same mindset could prevail for the dismal likes of Jeremy Kyle ? Beg, steal or borrow. I have waited for over thirty years see this magnificent programme and it was well worth the wait.

Comment on Theatre Review: Peter Pan, until 3 January, Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh by jmichaelcox

While I do have to agree with the notion that the Lyceum's Peter Pan is not very good, it certainly wasn't horrible. And I have to also question both responses when they say it was nothing like the original. With respect, it was a lot closer to the original than most productions I've seen (and I have seen a lot). That includes Wendy pretending to have children in the beginning (though I've never seen the character directed to actually give birth onstage before). It just goes to show you how imprinted we are with JM Barrie's creation, that we all have our own version of the characters and plot.

the peter pan pantomime at the lyceum theater 2009 in edinburgh is HORIBLE .DON`T be conned by the lyceum reviews. During the first 20 minutes wendy was having a BABY- what has THAT got to do with peter pan?!I am 11 years old and It was the worst pantomime I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!! It was horrible and offencive and BORING. I wish I had been taken to the Kings Theatre instead!!!!!!!! I was looking forward to my Christmas treat but was very disappointed.Parents ,don't waste your money taking your children to see this pantomime.It is not the classic peter pan.We left early,but I wish we'd left after the first five minutes!

Comment on Theatre Preview: Corstorphine Road Nativity, 3 – 19 December, Festival Theatre, Edinburgh by Mark

Suprisingly awful. It was just not funny at all with the characters killing the few jokes by repeating them to death. I am a primary teacher and like a good laugh but I could not stand it. A group of us left at the interval and we were not alone. A waste of money. Refund please!

Just came across your site via twitter - it's great ! I've also been to see this play and thought you were generous in giving it three stars, just didn't hit the mark for me at all. I preferred the panto. Alison

Comment on Theatre Review: Sinbad and the Little Mermaid, Until 2 January, Brunton Theatre, Musselburgh by carrianne ferguson

absolutely hilarious show, i came with a class of anti-pre & pre-school children aged 3-5 and they absolutely loved every minute of it. it was a great show, funny, cheeky, easy to follow & the music was up to date & enjoyable. The cast were very professional yet you could see the on-stage in jokes cleary on their faces, they looked like they were loving it just as much as the audience. I would defiently love to see this production again - best thing ive saw in years!!! well done cast, writers & all crew! 5 star!!! x
