5.0 out of 5 stars Grace Kelly in Wonderland, 1 Aug 2011
Some people, including Hitchcock himself, dismiss To Catch A Thief as being just a light comedy.

It is far more than that.

The actors are beautiful.
Photography is fabulous.
Locations are glamourously romantic.
The music is charming.
The story is original, admittedly with less suspence and fear than in other Hitchcock's movies.
The overall style is of incredible elegance.

The end result is a charming movie, one of unique beauty, amazing style, supreme elegance, with an ounce of adventure and mystery. If ever there was a paradise on earth, French Riviera in 1954 filmed by Hitchcock was it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing, 1 Aug 2011
This review is from: Bossa Nova (Audio CD)
A must have for Shearing fans and Bossa Nova enthusiasts.
Slightly disappointing though: there are two masterpieces, One Note Samba and an unusual Come Rain Or Come Shine.
The rest is a bit sad, a bit weak.
Not bad, bur not what I expected.

3.0 out of 5 stars Getting better, 1 Aug 2011
The Mentalist seems to be getting better every season, with Simon becoming less and less annoying.
Good entertainment, but not great.

Dvd ~ Sean Connery

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 1 Aug 2011
Very well made thriller taking place in a remote time and place .
Marked a come back for Sean Connery, whose career was at a low point back in the early 1980s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, 8 Jun 2011
Great product.
I have been using it for 25 years, and cannot imagine doing without it.
It is strange there are no other equivalents I can think of on the market.

Definitely helps avoiding hurting the skin while electric-shaving.

Important: make sure the product has dried before shaving!

1.0 out of 5 stars A disaster, 27 Nov 2010
Don't even think of getting one.
It will work perfectly for one week.

Then, for some reasons, it will become the worst headset ever: lost connection, terrible sound, affected by all sort of interferences... Everything that may go wrong will go wrong. Software updates and technical support won't change a thing.

I had two devices, and experienced the same disaster in both cases. A friend who also purchased various jawbones faced the same trouble. Totally useless.

Edition: Paperback
Price: 15.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting for the enthusiast, 27 Nov 2010
Poor black and White pictures make this a book suitable for the enthusiast, not the amateur longing for entertainment.
A must have for that car' admirers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misguiding, 1 Sep 2010
The title is misguiding, as this DVD focuses on the end of her premiership.

The political commentaries and the views on her action are clearly left wing.

However the description of the rebellion against her inside the Conservative party is interesting and well documented.

100 Superlative Rolex Watches
100 Superlative Rolex Watches
by John Goldberger
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 86.37

4.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for Rolex fans, 1 Sep 2010
Very nice book, with a lovely engraved cover.

Contains very high quality pictures of 100 rare Rolex watches, and includes a short but particularly well documented history of the brand, with relatively unknown facts.

More detailed information on the watches enclosed would be welcome though.

A must-have for Rolex fans, at a very reasonable price.
