Bizet: Carmen -- film version [DVD] [1985]
Dvd ~ Julia Migenes

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant realisation, 12 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolutely brilliant film version of the opera. Filmed in Andalusia using local people as extras the film really "put you in the picture". All the main roles were well cast and superbly sung. We will watch this again and again - even in preference to a live performance!

1.0 out of 5 stars No Kindle editions thank you, 31 July 2012
If I wish to read a book I would prefer to do just that. I do have, nor do I plan to acquire, a Kindle.

Split Image: A Jesse Stone Mystery (Jesse Stone Mystery 9)
Split Image: A Jesse Stone Mystery (Jesse Stone Mystery 9)
by Robert B. Parker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfying conclusion, 17 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best of recent Parker and forms a very satisfying "wrapping up" of the problems of both Jesse Stone and Sunny Randell - you finish the book hoping and (probably) believing that they will finally get themselves sorted - with each other's help. The crime side is good too - even if the title makes it fairly easy to work out quite early on why the murders were done.


Blue-Eyed Devil
Blue-Eyed Devil
by Robert B. Parker
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.68

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 17 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue-Eyed Devil (Paperback)
As another chapter in the lives of Virgil & Everett this is an efficient and enjoyable read. There is nothing really fresh or new, but is that what you want or need from a 21st-century Western? Probably not and I would have read about their further adventures if there were to be any.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting tired, 17 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a long way from one of the better Spenser books. There is a feeling (amazingly for the first time) that Parker is losing interest in his characters. The rehabilitation of SIXkill provides most of the interest and, as a whole, this would be a good solid read if it were by most authors. It is just rather disappointing because you expect better from Parker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Custom doth NOT stale!, 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As good as ever and with yet more new insights into Leon's (and our) Venice. As one reviewer has said: "These are fine novels" i.e. they're not just crime stories - the characters are real people, their problems are real and the setting is wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic!, 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fantasia - [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
Even better than I remembered when I first saw it - as a teenager, on re-release. It is for adults rather than children. This time around I found myself most enjoying different sequences than I had before - sign of a work with much to offer at several levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling History, 5 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Totally authoritative history, very well-written and as exciting as any thriller. What more could you ask for? To be seasonal - this makes a brilliant "holiday read" as I have just proved.
