2.0 out of 5 stars Allen is a fish out of water here. Watch "Magic in the Moonlight" instead., 9 Oct. 2014
I am afraid this is nowhere near as good as any other Woody Allen's recent movies. What is quite tragic of this tragic film is that it was made and many actually give credit to the story: a boring, pretentious déjà vu of a woman on a verge of a nervous breakdown that eventually breaks down. We are already surrounded by such individuals going through a middle-age crisis. Did we really need to see another story like this? No! Two stars just because of the performances, which are certainly good, but actors do all they can with a script which makes me feel totally unsympathetic for the characters. If you trust some sound advise: watch "Magic in the Moonlight" instead and there you have old good Woody all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem, 28 Feb. 2012
A booklet that has to accompany your studies on the subject. From the same author of the "Golden Game". Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 28 Feb. 2012
It does what is supposed to do. It could be a couple of pounds cheaper; other than that: highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good fun for my puppy, 28 Feb. 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Remote Controlled Rat (Toy)
I bought this for my one year old Cocker Spaniel. She loved it! She chased the rat everywhere. She eventually got use to the fact it is indeed a strange animal with red beaming eyes, and got bored after a few days. But every now an than "Rat" is coming out for outstanding results. It is not the easiest remote control to use, but for the price you can't expect better than this!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 28 Feb. 2012
This is not good for black/white but if you want a "negative" effect only. This is for you only if you are doing a remake of Murnau's silent masterpiece Nosferatu. Other than that, utterly useless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 28 Feb. 2012
A very good book on the subject. The only pity is that the edition is printed poorly, sometimes you can't read properly the words on a dark background. Other than that: very useful reference.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous, 28 Feb. 2012
I have used other adapters before and I can safely say this: DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM!!!! Avoid this cheap piece of metal like the plague. It just can't work properly. In trying to screw in/out it caused me superficial incisions on my finger tips and ruined my nails. I also had to spend £18 to remove professionally the adapter from the Nikon lens I used. The only reason why I give two stars is the excellence of Amazon's customer service. They refunded me fully (plus p&P).

This review is from: Balthus (Paperback)
A magnificent introduction to the Art of a most enigmatic Artist. The commentary is brief, yet beautifully phrased.
