4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and credible weight/ BM/ water % machine, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A touch arcane at first, and maybe a little less straightforward in usage than might be expected but overall good and VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catholic? This is a must., 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The teachings of Jesus Christ are a corner-stone of Western beliefs, values and culture. Most of us still think that the teachings themselves and the values implicit in these are at the very least laudable, maybe aspirational.

Does the church of Rome uphold these teachings or is it more of a man-made power structure focussed principally on itself and self-perpetuation? And to what length will the participants in this structure go in order to maintain their power?

Who is the real church?

I got a glimpse of a few answers through this film.


If You Knew Me You Would Care
If You Knew Me You Would Care
by Zainab Salbi
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £46.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Reach Out. It's a must., 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zainab Salbi and Rennio Maifredi have created here a masterpiece of a journey. You will meet the forgotten who have prevailed. You will see the un-expected beauty of the faces of those who have maintained hope where most of us would have surrendered several times over. The photography is sublime yet respectful. The stories just have to be told. A minor Nobel peace prize and a lesson to all of us over-testosteroned bastards.


DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Beijing & Shanghai
DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Beijing & Shanghai
by Peter Neville-Hadley
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable., 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We walked around with it, felt lost whenever it was not close at hand and were delighted with everything it suggested. The format (a mix of pictures and text that feels like an interact tablet screen) suits our current short-attention-span mindset far better than anything I could have imagined - for a book.

One of the best guides I've ever bought and used.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ai WeiWei needs to grow up., 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry [DVD] (DVD)
This chap isn't a hero, the authorities are not universally fascist/ authoritarian and the documentarian didn't do her job properly.

This is fiction, not documentary.


Farewell My Concubine  [All Region] [import]
Farewell My Concubine [All Region] [import]
Dvd ~ Li Gong

Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Wrenching drama with China's 20th century upheavals as backdrops., 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As China emerges as a world power, it is probably quite key for us to understand what led to the birth of this great communist (sort-of) nation.

Enjoy a romantic, ambiguous ride through the great years of internal tumult, Japanese occupation and then the birth of communism in this great land.

Nobody spared this nutter's prose. Even HM the Queen.

And lots of titillating photographs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nah., 12 Feb 2013

This review is from: Young Adult [DVD] (DVD)
Love Charlize but this ain't as good as she gets.

I needed to feel for the lead character's life angst. Didn't.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull as doornails., 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ausente - Assente (DVD)
As a film maker, I rarely do films the dishonour of just skimming through.

I think I watched barely 20 minutes of this film.

I didn't connect to the characters, their silences, their quandaries. It may have been a cultural thing.

Maybe our South American pals got it?

I certainly didn't care about any of the action from the beginning to the end.
