4.0 out of 5 stars The Brits- most popular songs..., Jan. 20 2015

This review is from: British Invasion Gold (Audio CD)
Good compilation of memorable hits and artists... it is the British pop scene and worth a listen- 60's music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughing at human tragedy- over the Holidays..., Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This movie has been panned by some reviewers.. however, I found it a great watch around Christmas... kind of embodies the dark side but extracts a laugh out of what would otherwise be a depressing topic dealing with loneliness, divorce, superficiality of relationships- I need not go one, I am sure!

Anyway, this film is funny and is made good by its actors great talents... excellent interactions and they make a bad backdrop of human tragedy very good, and very funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Despicable here, just purely Delightful!, Jan. 19 2015

What's not to like- could be diabolical me... sort of bad guy warms up to children, becomes all good- the narration is on point with animated action and especially facial expressions- this movie is absolutely delightful and it is watchable over again and again...

4.0 out of 5 stars Lego on hyper-drive..., Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great fun- fast paced. Very much orientated to kids and has an almost overwhelming amount of special effects scenes.. not much of a plot but it is definitely in the style of Lego; make believe ++ all the way, as it should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kipling's Jungle Book: animated version, Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"The Jungle Book was released on October 18, 1967 to positive reception, with much acclaim to its soundtrack, featuring five songs by the Sherman Brothers and one by Gilkyson, "The Bare Necessities'.

I watched it in 1967 and it made a great impression upon me... I have never forgotten it and always wanted to get a newer version- it first came out on video which I grabbed up since it is Walt Disney Studio release and sometimes hard to get later after the release. I was surprised that a DVD version was released and in various ways. This particular version is great. Kids today will like it too, along with adults. Despite its age the animation is really very good- largely hand painted instead of computerized.

It is a fun filled animated version of Rudyard Kipling's book.

Wow- great black and white movies- each a treat to watch... actors cannot hide behind special effects... then there is the sets: lots of history with furnishings, vehicles, sites and sounds which add a lovely tapestry to the viewing pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars 70s music, Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very cool! The quality of the re-recordings is superb. If you like the 70's music this a must. Some pleasant surprises here- some not as hard to find as one might expect from the title cover, but the sound is crisp and clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bond Musical Scores, Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It has a variety of material and brings up good memories of the older James Bond films... with this though is music from those times- so you would likely enjoy them if you relate to the era in which the film was produced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mowtown at its best!, Jan. 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I listened to this CD a couple of time- it grows on you. I definitely feel she is one of the most talented singers of the 60s. She was referred to a the "The Queen of Motown" for very good reason. Her interpretations of songs are unique and shows a very important creative side to her skillful performances. Inherent in her singing is a strong resonating emotional undercurrent. A true artist that should never be forgotten.
