The Forgotten Highlander: My Incredible Story of Survival During the War in the Far East
The Forgotten Highlander: My Incredible Story of Survival During the War in the Far East
by Alistair Urquhart
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars a shocking account of the reality of war, 27 Jan. 2015
It was incredibly difficult to comprehend the appalling barbarity against PoWs set out in this moving and very readable memoir. I think the author has been exceptionally courageous in relating his experience in a way that gives a voice to the vast number of people who were not able to tell their own stories.

This review is from: The Slap (Kindle Edition)
Going by the title, this book really lacked plot - and the mind numbingly repetitive sex scenes were naff. But you have to admire the author for creating a entire cast of sleezy, dysfunctional blockheads.

1.0 out of 5 stars my sock drawer suffered, 17 Nov. 2013
Now I'm not BONE idle but my sock drawer was in a shocking mess and I should have attended to it sooner but I watched this movie instead.

I squirmed and cringed my way through the entire film and really felt deep sympathy for those actors who had injudiciously participated in this stinky piece of cinematic codswallop. Will they ever be able to recover from the embarassment? Probably not.

Still, I'm back on track - socks are tidy - just gotta move forward now and forget I ever watched this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars the toploader appreciation society, 3 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Four Lions [DVD] (DVD)
If there was a way of awarding this Bafta award winning movie 10 stars I'd do it. This sublime farce/black comedy captures perfectly the zeitgeist of living in today's UK. It works brillianty on so many levels and encapsulates what it means to be young and torn between two cultures.

Confusion is the order of the day and the actors are all deserving of awards - especially Novak's gentle heartrending performance as someone who just wants to be cool like his mates.

I can't heap enough praise on this film - it was the dog's bollards.

5.0 out of 5 stars unflinching, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: What Remains [DVD] (DVD)
Although this drama begins as a seemingly run-of-the-mill whodunit it quickly becomes apparent that it is in fact far superior to the usual morality tale with happy ending brought about by a renegade detective. The intertwining stories of these characters are gritty and expose uncomfortable truths about relationships and the private worlds that exist behind closed doors. The plot has been well crafted and the peformance of the cast is both moving and beguiling.


Freshta
Freshta

Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars wild and famished, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Freshta (Paperback)
This is clever and provocative novel which does not overtly moralise or judge but instead provides an intriguing and often heart-rending insight into Afgan culture and family life.

5.0 out of 5 stars a blast, 15 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Anuvahood [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
The story of an everyday airbrushed, technicolour badland. Razor sharp comedic performances all round and a high-octane soundtrack that puts the icing on the cake. Well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars bravo, 13 Sept. 2013
This review is from: The Long Firm [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
An excellent, engaging drama, with a superb supporting cast. I was sad to see it end. As other reviewers have rightly said I trust that awards will be generously heaped upon all those who made this happen.

Mark Strong, an extremely talented and versatile actor, gives the performance of his career so far. Mezmerising.
