5.0 out of 5 stars Great film...not a documentary., 16 May 2015
The lion in winter....Great title for a great film.
One review suggested the film is 'Historically inaccurate' and to a certain degree yes it is.
However, a quick eye can spot most of The inaccuracies and accept them as a sort of poetic licence.
Compared to a lot of modern historical films, this 1960's piece is quite good and more authentic.
It's a film though that you have to watch and you have to have some love of history to sit and not yawn, it also helps if you know the real story of the characters/ settings.
Overall, i personally like it, great costumes, great locations, great atmosphere, excellent cast/acting.
One thing i've learned is to take the film industry with a pinch of salt when it comes to accuracy, but then again, if they did it would then be a documentary wouldn't it...Read the true history and you won't go wrong...

4.0 out of 5 stars Gengigel......., 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used this product for a number of years now and find it beneficial.
However, the price is detrimental to one's pocket as some retailers ell this item for £7 upwards.
I bought my latest lot on Amazon form Dental direct as they are selling this product at a fair price inc p+p all inc.
What more can i say but very good service.

Oh dear.......I was expecting something FRESH & NEW but reviews should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Waste of money.
Nothing new, boring, and mainly info i've read before in numerous books.
When will someone produce a ghost book with NEW and unheard of stories, plenty out there........

I bought this book from a third party seller on Amazon brand new of course and although it has some interseting facts,
i found it so-so.
Mind you it would have helped if the book hadn't been faulty, 32 pages missing and 32 pages doubled up, so no wonder
it seems dull...LOL.
Have to admit though the seller was good enough to give a full refund as they didn't have another hard copy to hand.

The Encyclopedia of Ghosts and Spirits: v. 2
by John Spencer
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedia of ghosts and spirts v.2, 3 Jun. 2013
I have two books by John and Anne Spencer THE GHOST HANDBOOK and volume 1 of their encyclopedia.
I had bought this latest vol.2 a few years back but found it is mainly stories from the ghost handbook with one or two new one's thrown in. I must admit i sold it on but still have the others.
Good book but was disappointed it wasn't filled with new and original stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great walls of Newcastle, 4 May 2013
Had been looking for an overlaid map of Newcastle city walls to see just exactly where they stood in
relation to today's streets and came across this little book.
I read the descriptive as i always do and the review and thought okay, i'll buy it.
In short it's OKAY, basic, nothing more, some nice photo's of long demolished
parts of walls but not enough info(although for those who don't know much about this subject it is a good starting point).
Roman wall and castle are included but really, more should have been said about
the medieval walls. Two nice maps but sadly, overall i'm disappointed.


Paranormal Newcastle
Paranormal Newcastle

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paranormal Newcastle (Paperback)
I read the descriptive of this book and both reviews before buying as once before i have bought books on the
subject of ghosts and super/paranormal and have been left feeling cheated.
The book duly arrived and i flicked through the pages.......After about twenty pages of photo's and a brief descriptive
of Newcastle history, i wondered here we go again and yes, for me, i was right.
A few new tales, but very, (for me, anyhow) disappointing.
Wasn't comprehensive as i thought it may have been, no stories to draw my attention.
Overall, very disappointed and want to return for refund, and also, in future will try to see before i buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Logitech performance mouse, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hving opreviously had the MX REVOULTION was a bit hesitant to pay another £60 or so for a mouse, but having got rid of a power and electric i.e money consuming desk top pc, i had to have one as i can't stand the touch pad on laptop's for some applications....... so irritating.

Anyhow, the mouse is OKAY, no major faults, buils is good and now the battery can be renewed unlike the revolution which was sealed and once the battery was dead that was the end of the mouse aswell.
However, heavy useage will see a fresh fully charged mouse drained faster than a pint of beer in the desert.
Overall....... 7.5/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Spartacus war......., 4 April 2013

This review is from: The Spartacus War (Paperback)
Still on reading it. Started off good, then dropped off a bit with some in fill to eke things out, but then back to exciting.......

The book i suspect will be like this in certain chapters, but to be fair to the author, (so far i'm onto chapter 4), there's not much known about Spartacus, Crixus, Oenamaus and co., however, what is known, is quite cool and the book is as good as you'll get.
Spartacus still stands for Humanity today in a way, what with tyranny, greed corruption, poverty and oppression in the world today, we could do with someone like him to rise up and take the fight to these evil men and women who try to control all aspects of our lives.
He lived in a different time to us, views, religion, ideas,etc, yet two millenia on and yet, how similar in many ways we Human's still are......
