5.0 out of 5 stars Rule Britannia! Conflagration..., 24 April 2014
Fast-paced answer to the question: What happens when the Mummy (Brendan Fraser – style) runs out of gas (or is that bones?) Bring on the Legionaries!
Lurking under London, lying in wait for two thousand years…
In the course of the story we get to visit some of the most famous landmarks – though some of them become ‘casualties of war’, we also see how the Londoners handle things when the going gets tough.
And in the background, the story of Boadicea and her daughters routing the Romans!
What’s not to like about this one!?

5.0 out of 5 stars No one could have believed such a wonderful video could be made!, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic stage adaption of the original double album - complete with the incomparable Justin Hayward singing "Forever Autumn" and "The Chances of Anything Coming from Mars", the wonderful voice of Richard Burton, and those fearsome fighting machines!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spend an Evening with John, and find out how good he was!, 20 July 2013

He was at his best in this comprehensive live album. John Denver brought 'country' to my life..., though mostly I still only like his kind of country!

Justin's songs from some years ago, and some really excellent ones here, and as a bonus four other 'lost tracks' to try out!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Secret is in the Simplicity, as well as the Garden, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Garden [DVD] (DVD)
Although this is not a very recent video, it is my favorite version of this classic tale. It feels to me like the author intended it to be - a gentle story of gradual redemption, set in a past that we can only visit in our imagination, or in productions like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near-perfect love cycle for the key players makes absorbing viewing, 19 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many characters for you to 'root for' in this story, but the principal love affair that winds it's way through these three years is worth the wait - for the conclusion is a great high point, played out against the tremendous changes that occured from 1912 to 1920. Sumptuous costumes, great scenery and sets, and of course the 'Abbey' itself, are complimented by the fantastic actors and actresses in every role. I particularly like the great sense of morals and values that so many of the period players portray.
For me the end of the third season (and this package) was so good that I can't imagine anything that follows could compare...

Very classy historical drama with some mystery, some humour, and some romance. The characters are interesting, the premise and the premises are engaging and impressive... truly a joy to behold!

5.0 out of 5 stars Once you start, you'll be hungry to finish.... The Living Hunger!, 9 July 2013
This review is from: The Living Hunger: 1 (Paperback)
Just finished The Living Hunger - wow! What a story! Exciting... chillingly realistic, full of interesting characters that struggle to become tougher as the battle to survive ramps up. I've read quite a few apocalyptic stories, but this one grabs your emotions and pulls you in. I'd didn't grow up in a country where people hunt for food to feed their families, but here you'll see how that experience could prepare some to handle a world where so many have died, so little is left, but ironically, many of the worst that featured in the fringes of civilization (now lost) have hung on, and are determined to enjoy the liberty of a world without governments, police or rules. Don't read this expecting a fairy-tale world, or heroes that beat all - you'll never know, until the end, just who will survive, and who will fall, as those who believe in freedom, peace, love and sharing are forced to fight to kill - or be killed - by the ruthless band that takes and takes (if no one opposes), until there is nothing left to take.
