High Society (DVD) 03/10/2010

Wonderful film, but could have done with more special features

High Society (DVD) This is one of my favourite films ever made, and is a must-see for families. It must be considered one of the best musicals to come out of the 1940s and 1950s! The all-star cast of Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Celeste Holm are absolutely fantastic, and the quality of the singing is extremely high. The comedic turns from the cast are hilarious, and it's great to see such big stars looking like they are having fun. The inclusion of the film reel of the premiere is a nice addition to the dvd, but more could have been made of the special features of the film- some kind of documentary of the making of the film, or cast interviews about the film must exist. Overall, the film hasn't dated in the 54 years since it was made, and still stands out as one of the most entertaining films ever made.

Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara 03/10/2010

Good mascara that doesn't irritate eyes

Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara In the past, I have found it very hard to find a mascara that doesn't irritate my eyes, and that is relatively easy to remove. Masterpiece Mascara fulfills both of these requirements- my eyes no longer ache when I apply make-up, and taking the mascara off at night is a piece of cake. The wand is easy to use, and separates lashes nicely. There is hardly any clumping, and it makes my eyes stand out a lot more than other makes previously have. The only downside to this mascara is that being a student, and sometimes a little hard-up, I am reluctant to buy a mascara that is slightly more than my budget can afford. However, in this case, it has worked really well for me, and sometimes spending a little extra can be worth it!

1946-1953 - Jimmy Rushing 03/10/2010

Great selection of Wayne and Ford films

1946-1953 - Jimmy Rushing I bought this selection of John Wayne/John Ford films for my Dad's birthday earlier this year, and have thoroughly enjoyed watching it with him. The films included appeal to people of all ages, whether you're watching them for the first time, or the hundredth! The collection includes Stagecoach, Rio Grande, She Wore A Yellow Ribbon, Fort Apache and The Quiet Man. These are classic Wayne films that I remember from my childhood, and the two co-starring Maureen O'Hara are particularly good. The DVD menus are easy to use, and the film recordings are of good quality. The soundtracks are typical of Westerns of the era- tear-jerking at times! Overall a very enjoyable collection, which is suitable to watch with the whole family (now a rare thing)!

Gilmore Girls - Series 1 (Box Set) (DVD) 03/10/2010

Good series, with great characters

Gilmore Girls - Series 1 (Box Set) (DVD) The first series of this funny and at times very heart-warming programme is a joy to watch. The story of Lorelai Gilmore, a struggling single mother, and her teenage daughter, Rory, is very well balanced. Lorelai dreams of running her own inn and Rory would love to go to Harvard. Kelly Bishop and Edward Herrmann are perfect as Lorelai's conservative and distant parents, who have had little contact with Lorelai since she ran away when Rory was little more than a baby. The supporting cast in this drama are quirky and provide much comic relief. Living in a small town myself, I can identify with elements of the characters, such as Taylor (the head of the town's council), and Luke (the owner of the diner). This dvd release contains every episode in Season One, and is generally very good value for the amount of entertainment it provides. The soundtrack is also worth a mention. I would recommend it to anyone!
