5.0 out of 5 stars Repeat viewing is no chore, 17 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lord of War [DVD] (DVD)
Lord of War is a good cinematic take on the realities, morality and dilemmas of the world's arms trade. Nicholas Cage fits the role to a T and Lord of War is one of his better recent roles. You watch Cages character develop from an immigrant New Yorker into a suave arms dealer to the world's nastiest rulers and wanubie dictators. Plenty of action, love interest, wealth and world politic reality on display to suit the most jaded palette. Think the movie `Wall street' on the arms trade for a similar insider trading expose. The movie grips you from the memorable opening credits onwards and the tight direction, cinematography and acting makes repeat viewing no chore.

4.0 out of 5 stars No operational problems so far., 30 Aug 2011

This generic product works as advertised. Small brush heads are good for getting behind teeth. No operational problems so far. Despite the shipping costs a good cheaper alternative to the mainstream product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value so far sez I., 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quickly delivered. This umbrella is big and provides sufficient cover in a down pour to keep your body dry. Relatively lightweight. Withstood 20mph wind gusts to date, without losing shape. This one has an attractive blue colour (better than the photo) with a spring opening that requires practice and a matching blue cover. Good value so far sez I.

2.0 out of 5 stars I live in hope of an improved product, 18 July 2011
It's raining (again) in the middle of the UK `Summer' and I'm out to buy a pair of boots - the same as advertised here. Unfortunately I have bought many pairs of this design and others of a similar price. The problems faced are constant - splits around the ankle seams after 3 and at most 6 months of regular use in guaranteed wet weather in Wales. I can live with lose insole inserts, dodgy buckles and a budget price (refer other reviewers complaints) but not leaks. I'll buy them again coz its wet the boots are cheap and I live in hope of an improved product. Anyway let the buyer beware.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly - 2 Disc Special Edition [1966] [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Indisputably the best western ever, 15 July 2011
The `Good the bad and the ugly', is indisputably the best western ever and arguably the best movie of all time. With a genre defining director, cast and score, in a just world this film but for its horse opera image would have garnered a shed load of awards from the opening credits, onwards. Could go on and spoil the effect for the few who have yet to see the final in the Sergio Leonie spaghetti trilogy featuring the relatively unknown Clint Eastwood as the Man with no name. Instead I recommend that you get the box set and watch: `Fistful of dollars' and `For a few dollars more' first. This is how the West was or at least should have been. Anyway all the positive reviewers can't be wrong. Simply put the GBU is a movie right of passage. Icon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better with time, 8 Jun 2011
This review is from: Zulu [1964] [DVD] (DVD)
Truly brilliant cinematic experience that just gets better with time. The defence of Rorkes Drift an historic event of Victorian imperialism against stone brave Zulu warriors is transformed via this Stanley Baker inspired movie into cinematic legend. See it on DVD by all means - but the cinema screen is where it belongs. Front rank fire, second rank fire.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Be prepared for a provocative read, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Parneti Reader speaks truth to power from a left wing and alternative perspective. Each chapter of the eclectic Parenti Reader questions the established truths and norms that underpin popular understanding in a direct, fresh and accessible style. Parneti's Italian American heritage is especially useful in his deconstruction of the portrayal of Italian Americans in popular cinema. So be prepared for a provocative read and a telling alternative from the mainstream press and prose.

It's a black tap. It fits well with no visible leaks and turns the water on and off. So I have no reason to complain so far.

I recently bought this watch based on its price and simple effective design. No complaints so far. The watch is so light you have to check that you're wearing it. 5 stars.
