Movie Reviews

Not as good as earlier releases of Cookson's stories
S. D Forrest | 07/26/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"These two movies are dark and unhappy.....not something you want to look at to cheer you up, but they are well done and I guess life did turn out like that in the 19th century UK and those that survived just made the best of a bad situation....but I swear I don't think this is one I will want to view a second time. Buy the earlier DVDs that have 8 movies on them. They are a much happy view even with the ends in them not all skittles and beer, you won't lie awake and cry for a fictional character!"
Good--- but!

"This is a very good set and a good buy. There is only one thing wrong with it, just as Pride and Prejudis it is NOT closed captioned which is a MUST in todays world of Baby Boomers who are getting a LITTLE hard of hearing."

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The Black velvet gown had good acting. The plot was a little weird. It was a little of a let down.
The Black Candle had good acting."

"These are good stories, well-acted by British actors whom you will recognize from other British television programs and movies."
