The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos (2008)

"Their [Matthew Aeberhard, Leander Ward and Melanie Finn] testimony about working at Natron is both infectious and addictive." ‐ Eye for Film

A Serious Man (2009)

"What emerges is a willingness to go the extra mile to create good period detail, from adding aerials to roofs, to wrangling cars from the right period and even going so far as to remove the tree line to give the suburban estate a 'newly built' feel." ‐ Eye for Film

La HabitaciĆ³n de Fermat (Fermat's Room) (2009)

"Rather like the film itself - the extras on the DVD may be limited by budget, but they still exceed expectations." ‐ Eye for Film

Encounters at the End of the World (2007)

"The package is nothing short of exhaustive, especially when you consider this is not a mainstream Hollywood film." ‐ Eye for Film

Il Divo (2009)

"Quite often foreign language releases get short shrift when it comes to extras on their DVD release - but Artificial Eye has done Il Divo proud with this diverting set of additional material." ‐ Eye for Film

Gran Torino (2009)

"Despite Clint's claim in the first of the extras that: 'It's not really a car picture', you'd be hard pushed not to think that if you only watched the additional material here." ‐ Eye for Film

" Commentaries can be interesting and informative, but unfortunately these [here] are really too dry to impress all but the most die-hard of fans." ‐ Eye for Film

South: Shackleton & the Endurance (1919)

"Despite the series being great and the picture and sound on this disk being grain, scratch and hiss free, there is a paucity of extras." ‐ Eye for Film

Cows (Vacas) (1992)

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

"It has been lovingly put together. So lovingly, in fact, that what you receive can only be described as the full Monty." ‐ Eye for Film

Man With a Movie Camera (1929)

"As you would expect from the BFI, the filmakers' and composer's biographies are also thorough and clearly presented. However, in this greedy age of DVD extras, you can't help hankering for a little bit more." ‐ Eye for Film

All You Need Is Cash (1978)

"Eric Idle's introduction sees him readopt his "reporter" persona from the film some 20 years on. The humour, unfortunately, is also caught in a timewarp." ‐ Eye for Film

In the Line of Duty: Kidnapped (1995)

"This film is poor and the DVD packaging does little to help. In fact, 'padding' would be a better word." ‐ Eye for Film

Nick of Time (1995)

"The trailer is the only extra on offer and I wonder if the lack of any others is due to all parties involved being embarrassed to be associated with something so dire." ‐ Eye for Film

Simpatico (1999)

Heathers (1988)

"There is a complete lack of extras and, considering that the Region 1 version contains a plethora of added goodies ... I would recommend that those with a multi-region player plump for that." ‐ Eye for Film
