Walton Ford: Pancha Tantra by Walton Ford and Bu Buford
Walton Ford: Pancha Tantra by Walton Ford and Bu Buford
by Walton Ford & Bu Buford
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 31 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had the great fortune to view this exhibition in Vienna last year. The sheer scale of these pieces is amazing - some as big as 15 feet. The skill of Walton Ford has to be marvelled at - not only the quality of the painting but the emotions he portrays. This is a wonderful book - well worth the price; it also has the additional benefit of having pieces that weren't in the exhibition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but a few negative points, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The patent leather strap would be more suited to a very slim watch - this has a body depth of about 7mm. Perhaps it would be better to have a more casual strap. Also, as the clocks have just gone forward I had to adjust the time - pull out once for the date, then pull again (bloomin' hard) to change the time. I'm sure it's a well-made watch but I feel uncomfortable having to rive it so hard.

4.0 out of 5 stars The title says it all - beware!, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The usual quality of LP although I feel this book is aimed more at backpackers. Still, there's enough information for us to plan our trip from Cairns to Brisbane. A note of caution though: this is a book for East COAST Australia - there's not a great deal of information for anything inland from the coast. If you want to mix it up a bit you may be better buying a Queensland guide or the full Oz book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom!, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 13 Smash Hits (MP3 Download)
Tom Jones - what more is there to say? One of his earlier albums from '67 features covers from other artists - Sam & Dave, James Brown etc. Very good covers but only a couple of his better known songs.

3.0 out of 5 stars A road map, but not for the road, 26 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this map just a few days ago to plan an east coast road trip. It's only been opened a few times and already it's split at the creases; I can't see it surviving being opened in the confines of a car more than once. I'll probably scan it and print it out at A4.

1.0 out of 5 stars I've another season to get through!, 6 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jericho - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Bought Season 1 and Season 2 together and I'm about four episodes in to the first one. It's very Saturday tea-time TV. Scooby-Doo kind of stuff. Very weak and uninteresting. I can't see myself getting to the end of Season 1, let alone starting Season 2. All I want now is a nuclear bomb to go off in Jericho itself. Still, I've got twelve great coasters!

4.0 out of 5 stars Annoying final series, 18 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first couple of seasons are good enough but during the third we saw "Sex & The City" creeping in. By the fourth season Billie's wearing hideous clothes and carrying her handbag at 90 degrees from her body. She's obsessed with clothes and shoes (where she hadn't been up to now) and even tip-toes around her closet - very Carrie Bradshaw.

In the final season we skipped episodes 4.3 and 4.4. John Hopkins - the movie producer - was trying ever so hard to be Matthew McConaughey (and he certainly isn't) and the scenes in America were just unbearable.

In summary, this is a good series that goes downhill towards the end, but lifts slightly in the final couple of episodes. By all means, buy this box-set but keep your finger on the FF button.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better to watch a basket of eggs go off, 17 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
WKW excels himself in this five hour (it felt like it) film about nothing. It's as good as a bad French film noir from the 80's. Lots of blurry lens shots, slo-mo, longing looks. A waste of two evenings. It goes to the bottom of the pile, never to be watched again. Anyone want a second-hand copy?

1.0 out of 5 stars One is enough, 24 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I got half way through Season 1 I bought Season 2. And then Season 1 started going down hill. By the time I started on Season 2 I was just fed up of hearing Tim say "Now that's the truth" or "Now that's a lie". I think even he was fed up and starting taking the mickey. He spent most of this season in character... as Thade from Planet of the Apes - shuffling around sideways and sneering. I'm sure he was pished in one of the episodes early on.

Can't wait for Season 3 - I'll be the first to buy it. "Now that's a lie"

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT an italian version!, 1 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cyrano De Bergerac (Audio CD)
The title says it all - despite the track listing on amazon showing the Italian version it is, in fact, sung in French. I know Cyrano was French but I really wanted the Italian version.

There's also no libretto with this CD so unless you're fluent it's quite difficult to follow, even if you've read the play and seen the films as many times as I have.

Regarding the CD itself, the quality of the sound recording (1975 and live) isn't brilliant.
