1.0 out of 5 stars Total Fraud., 10 Jan 2014
This review is from: Gangbuster (Paperback)
This guy is a complete liar and now seeing him peddle his opinion of events as a security consultant to Sky News is a utter joke. No matter what the topic is, he prattles on about made up events from his book.

SKY NEWS PRESENTER- "peter can you tell me about the security practices that will be put in place for the royal wedding"
PETER MITTY- "well when the IRA but a hit out on my life".......

I cant believe how many people have been taken in by him, hes a complete Walter mitty. The tagline from his book how he was a founding member of the Mets undercover units is one of his most outrageous lies.

The book "The Infiltrators" will give you an honest way undercover units work

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete Garbage., 14 April 2013
I really looked forward to seeing this movie for a long time.... and it was all because the trailer made it look so good, but as i read somewhere else they had an outside production company make that, because the trailer was so much better than the film.

As i was waiting in the weeks before this film came out i researched the directors other work and of course that was StarWreck, a parody of Star Trek(of which i love) . All of the Finish fan-boys bumped up its ratings on review sites and i thought i would get a good taster before i got to see Iron Sky....

Well no StarWreck was terrible, so boring ,and all over the place, and lacking jokes but trying to make jokes where there was none.... Calling the famous star trek fire-arm the "Phaser" a "Tinkler"...
This is meant to be funny?

Well yet again we have the directors same unfunny style come through in Iron Sky....
And again it was all over the place... Nazis come down in a scout party from the moon... They help the Americans with their election campaign by using Nazi propaganda techniques.... Then want to go to war with the Americans!

Why bother with the election crap? And why bother with so much else of the plots that go no where as well....
And also the American presidents PR woman, Why try to make a hero out of a character that was a whore?
In what world real or not would a PR press person all of a sudden become a general?

In some one elses hands this could of been so much better.

AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure Crap, 8 Sep 2012
This review is from: Rigged (Paperback)
For more honest reviews of this book check the kindles version, there are alot more reviews on there.

I picked this up in a book shop for 5 euro, no big deal, but a total waste of my time.... The author is terrible, the contrived drama is boring and his use of words is appalling, there is a part in the book where within 20 pages the narrator says "and hell" 15 times!
As is,"and hell david didnt even own a car"

Learn to write and vocalise your words better instead of repeating the same nonsense over and over again....

If you read this you will continually diverted to events of no importance.... like a thanksgiving dinner with the main protagonist and his family before he goes to dubai that took up about 5 pages.... i skipped this because it had no relevance....

Telling you about the crisp cool new york air on that particular night in 2002 has NO RELEVANCE!!!!

It was like the book was written by a teenager who just had their first creative writing class.

Awfull author, Awfull book!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Watch, 3 July 2012
This review is from: Navy Seals [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This is a fun film from the early 90s that i first watched and loved as a teenager.
It starred charlie sheen before he became a weirdo and michael biehn who was always cool.
There are some funny parts in it that will give you a laugh but its a straight up action film.
And its also interesting to note how islamic terroists are depicted in the pre-Al qaeda days.
The last part of the movie is a masterclass in how explosions and shootouts should be.

The producers of stupid movies like Battle of Los angeles should watch a movie like this and take notes on the fire-fight scenes, maybe they might learn to stop the shaky camera routines that all the poor skilled filmmakers are choosing to do.

Watch it, its a really good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good gps.... really good service, 3 July 2012
My girlfriend bought this for me for christmas.... i picked it out though after doing my research so it was exactly what i wanted.
Now over 6 months later ive finally gone on my first big trip with it and it was perfect....
I always like to prepare every little thing, and so i wrote down the directions to the hotel that i was travelling to that they gave on their website aswell as using my new gps.... the hotels directions actually turned out to be wrong where as the gps was spot on.
There are a tonne of extras on it.... even as a gps and never minding the reverse camera you are getting alot.

And aswell the service from the staff was very helpfull as my girlfriend told me she emailed them a number of times before ordering with a list of questions, she said they were good and very courteous.

So in overall, im very happy with this product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Overly Long, 20 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The concept of the story itself is great, but the author went into far too many details about every little thing.
I bought the book after reading an article about people leading double lives on an internet website, Bill leasure the protagonist of the book had the most interesting story of them all, but unfortunately in this authors hands reading about it becomes mundane and tiresome.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Little Book, 20 Jun 2012
I am a former soldier and ive been thinking lately about going back and joining the reserves, but one of the more elite reserve units so I just wanted to get this book and see if it had any good advice.

Now its not an encyclopedia of fitness routines, but it is a good little book and cumon its cheap as chips aswell so dont be thinking you are going to get a million pages for the price you paid .
There are a few good points in there and i would especially get the book if you havent been in the forces before and you want to join up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Olly had a Ball!!!, 25 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this for my little Lab/Terrier dog.... Its a year later now and its finally broken...
Thats down to my little terror, not the quality of the ball, which was actually very very good.
I still remember his first day with it he loved it so much, he wore himself out chasing it around the place.
It really has given me good memories of him as a pup so it was a worthwhile purchase.
I might just get another one after he wears out some of his current toys...

If you want to see your dog happy get one of these.
