Movie Reviews

What Dickens BBC Productions This Set Contains....
Andrew Raker | PA | 02/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Note:
I have not yet viewed the remastered / repackaged / pan & scan collection of Charles Dickens: volume 2. The biggest change, however, (from the original BBC Dickens volume 2: ASIN: B000FQIRYK) is the addition of Barnaby Rudge (1960) starring John Wood, Barbara Hicks, and Newton Blick. The film is approximately 400 minutes.

In my opinion, if you have already purchased Charles Dickens: volume 2, I would wait and hope the BBC issues "Barnaby Rudge" separately. (Note: I have also never viewed "Barnaby Rudge.") However, if you are planning on buying Charles Dickens: Volume 2, KNOW THAT THIS CONTAINS BARNABY RUDGE.

In this collection:
Barnaby Rudge (1960)
David Copperfield (1999)
The Old Curiosity Shop (1979)
Dombey and Son (1983)
The Pickwick Papers (1985)

************************************************************************************************************ For your information, this was my review for the ORIGINAL Charles Dickens: volume 2. (Amazon made me delete the review below before I could publish the above review.)

I loved viewing the four films in this collection. "The Pickwick Papers", "Dombey and Son", and "David Copperfield" were all very enjoyable to watch, while "The Old Curiosity Shop" was tolerable.

Overall, I wouldn't spend more than $[...] for the set, yet I do believe that they are worth at least thirty dollars, if just for "The Pickwick Papers" and "David Copperfield (2000)", which were my personal two favorites.

The acting in these films was excellent and the plot, characters, and flow progressived well. The only negative was that I just thought "The Old Curiosity Shop" was poorly made with unbelievable characters and an inconclusive, poor done ending."
