5.0 von 5 Sternen MORE DARKER AND BETTER THAN BEFORE, 7. Februar 2011
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Merlin - Series 3 [UK Import] (DVD)
Merlin is an excellent action series for the whole family, very loosly based on the Arthurian Legends. This third installment is (after my opinion) the best so far. It's even darker and has more action, better graphics and a terrific finale (don't worry a fourth series is being made). In other words, this has it all, as it becomes clear in the terrific opening episode that leaves you breathless.

The rest of the episodes guides you into further excite, amuse and move most greatly. Tournaments are fought, monsters overcome, a goblin creates havoc, Arthur tries to avoid marrying a clumsy princess. All the while the series moves into darker waters and gradually introducing some of the key elements of the legends like, the Lady of the Lake, the Sword in the Stone, Arthur's love for Guinevere, the Round Table and steering you into the finale double episode that only leaves you wanting more.

Everybody involved does the series proud. Colin Morgan is perfect as Merlin, yet fully to be appreciated by Arthur which is still a bit of a bully (if the truth be told). Merlin's scenes with (Richard Wilson) Gaius remain amongst the highlights. Emilia Fox is formidably evil as Morgause. As Morgana (Katie McGrath) villainy is enjoyable especially when at night she "secretly" stalks the castle in the noisiest shoes imaginable and last it is even possible to have some sympathy for King Uther.

The DVD set is handsomely packaged. A leaflet detailing the 13 episodes would have helped, but nothing is perfect. The bonus includes an enlightening "Behind the Scenes" feature and hillarious commentaries from the cast and producers/director capable of giving an informative overall view.

All this, plus a superb castle and terrific dragon! Merlin really casts a spell. It's really uplifting when talents converge and get everything right.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WHEN THE NIGHT WIND HOWLS, 29. Juni 2009
Are you sitting comfortably?
Is the wind howling outside your window or are you badly in need of a really good TV programme?
If so, "Being Human" might just be what you are looking for.
I never thought that I would like this series, but a friend of mine insisted so I bought it.

"Being Human" is a drama-comedy and sometime horror about a werewolf, vampire and a ghost sharing a house: it doesn't sound like a very good promise, does it? And yet against all odds, it's simply works due to excellent acting and script and I enjoyed the show even more the second time that I watched it.
The three main characters are:

- George, a gentle and quiet guy who is struggling to cope having become a werewolf;
- Mitchell, a 100 year old vampire who has turned his back on the rest of his kind and is trying to abstain from blood.
- Annie, a ghost coming to terms with her death and who is still dearly in love with her fiance, who has moved on.

Each episode largely focuses on one character and their efforts to remain a part of humanity. While it is primarily a drama focusing on the lives of these characters and their continued efforts to be normal, there are touches of humour with an excellent, witty script that sometimes becomes a bit sentimental, but not overly so. The actors are really good, although some of the 'evil' vampires occassionally seem a bit over the top in their performances, but it doesn't spoil anything.
Despite being hour-long episodes they are never dull and always leaves you wanting more.
Frankly, there is little with this series which isn't excellent, and the worst thing about it is that it had to end so soon.

This is first rate television the from the BBC, high budget and quality all the way. There has been confirmed a second series which I'm really looking foreward to.

3.0 von 5 Sternen WARNING: THIS DVD HAS BEEN EDITED!, 12. Mai 2009
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Please forgive me for writing in English.

I taped this great serie (on Betamax) when it was originally screened in the late 1970's, so I was very happy when I saw that "Michael Strogoff" was finally avaliable on DVD and could hardly wait for it to arrive in the post.

However, I was slightly disappointed, because it has been edited from the original, several scenes have been cut out, maybe to fit it onto a double DVD? I really hate when they are doing this, I feel it is a great disrespect for the creators/ director.

Still, with the slightly annoyance of missing scenes, it is still a great TV serie and it has aged quite well. Raimund Harmstorf excells in the part of Strogoff and it is almost impossible not to fall in love with him. The British and French agents, disguised as journalists are amusing and adds abit of humour. Vladimir Cosma fantastic soundtrack does magic.

The picture and sound quality is resonable good, there are some murky parts, but that would be expected consider it was made 30 years ago.

The DVD comes with a nice booklet and a little extra material added.

I would have considered given this a full five stars, however due to the cut-out scenes I can't give it more than three.

5.0 von 5 Sternen GREAT ACTION, GREAT FUN!, 27. März 2008
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Die schwarze Tulpe (DVD)
This is a great film, which I feel has somewhat been unjustly underestimated over the years.

First of all, it was tremedous fun watching this film on DVD (even without English sub-titles) and I enjoyed it even more now, then at the cinema in the 1960's.

I like the way it mixes action and comedy, there is hardly a dull moment here and what great swordfights!
Alain Delon and Virna Lisi are magnificent, Delon playing the double-part very convincingly.

It's all just great fun!

3.0 von 5 Sternen NOT AS GOOD AS THE FIRST ONE, 27. März 2008
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Das Erbe von Björndal (DVD)
My apologies for writing this in English.

It was such a great joy to watch "Und Ewig Singen Die Walder", it was even better than I remembered it all those years ago.

However this sequel was rather a disappoitment. It lacked the quality and charm of the first film. I had a feeling that this follow-up was a rush work, several of the scenes were badly done, espesially the timber that are blown up in the river, this scene was so vividly described in the book, but badly handled in the film. I felt it could all have been done so much better. It's not all "bad", but compared to the first film this one falls short.

That said the picture and sound quality is excellent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen WHAT A JOY!, 27. März 2008
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Und ewig singen die Wälder (DVD)
I can remember seeing this film when I was a little girl and I never forgot it. I can't tell you what joy it was to be able to watch it again, nearly 50 years later.

It hadn't lost any of it's magic; a great story, the scenery is in great colours and the picture and sound quality is excellent.

It remains one of my all times favourites.
