The Ragman's Son
The Ragman's Son
by Kirk Douglas
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars An Exceptional Book, 28 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Ragman's Son (Hardcover)
Like most autobiographies, I approached this one with the normal scepticism. I needed not have worried. This is an amazingly frank and uncomfortable to read account of his life. He does not pull any punches or shy away from his less than gentlemanly behaviour towards women. He is not boasting here I feel, he is simply telling it how it was. This book had me almost in tears on several occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Have Such A Soft Spot for this Film, 29 Sep 2013
For me, this is Richard Curits' second best film (the First being Love Actually). The poignancy, humour and drama in this film is well pitched. It does not come over as saccharine or wishy washy.

The performances are all good, and the story stays strong and entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars So Much Potential Wasted, 29 Sep 2013
This review is from: Horrible Bosses [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
This film was ok but for me, it largely failed to deliver the potential that certain aspects of it promised. Spacey was good though note quite up to his normal standard.

This film needed to stretch itself a bit, I can't help feeling it took the lazy route.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stroke of Honest and Humble Genius, 14 July 2013
This review is from: The Ragman's Son (Paperback)
This is one of the most frank,honest and no holds barred autobiography that I have ever read. Douglas never skirts away from the more negative aspects of his character or makes excuses for any of his behaviour.

This book had me very close to tears on quite a few occasions.

He tells it like he sees it. I wish more people felt able to do this.

City Hall [DVD] [1996]
Dvd ~ Al Pacino

Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Solid Film, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: City Hall [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
Mr Pacino can be a little erratic in his performances but this is a good solid performance from a very accomplished actor. John Cussack also holds his end up well as does Danny Aiello ( a much underrated actor in my opinion)

This is not a clear cut film about good and bad. It is about how these lines are easily blurred over time.

A very good film that I would strongly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been A Lot Better, 4 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Ides of March [DVD] (DVD)
I was looking forward to watching this as I had heard good comments about it. Well, quite frankly I was disappointed, The film jumped around randomly and came to a very odd climax. It is a shame because this film had the potential to be excellent. A good cast, believable characters nd the hint to a good developing story.

It is not one I will be watching again.

1.0 out of 5 stars An Insult to ichard Burton, 24 Feb 2013
I found this book to be quite an insult to Burton. I found it was sycophantic and smarmy. Mr Bragg's enthusiasm seemed to me to be rather contrived.
