5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing collection... can't understand why it's not widely available, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are a completest who wants to own each and every soundtrack (in full) that Morricone did then clearly this, or any compilation will never suffice. if, on the other hand you are a Morricone fan and you just want a decent overview of his different work than you can't do much better than this compilation. 9 discs, of film soundtrack work means that you get a pretty comprehensive overview of everything from giallo soundtracks, Leone westerns to more modern works, Italian films, Hollywood films everything! 2 discs of TV music, and 4 discs covering orchestral music and pop songs.

The only thing I would say with this compilation is that it's a mystery that it is so hard to come by, the tracks were chosen by the maestro himself, all original recordings and yet you usually have to look for a 2nd hand or a 3rd party seller to find a copy.

Doctor Who and the Ice Warriors
Doctor Who and the Ice Warriors
by Brian Hayles
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars classics revisited, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh if only amazon/the internet were around when I was collecting Dr Who books in my youth... I suppose it would have taken away the fun of the hunt around various dusty second hand bookshops.

I've recently bought some of these Doctor Who books for my young nephew in an attempt to brainwash him into my Whovian ways.
these reprintings are quite full on in a way, you obviously get the original text and cover art (with a small picture of that story's doctor on the spine) but it now comes with analysis and a foreword which seems quite odd for novelisations of an old sci-fi tv show but no complaints here.

I chose 2 books to start my nephew on and the ice warriors was always going to be one of them; it's a brilliant story with one of my favourite villains and a classic doctor/companion combo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ensemble's 7, 24 April 2013

Season 3, a definite change in pace but personally one that I was quite happy with.... yes the show lost some of the drive and direction it had had when it focussed on Blake's political agenda BUT it also lost the "Blake goes down to the planet and takes Vila and/or Avon while Jenna and Cally stay on the Liberator.

Instead of everything being about Blake it became more of an ensemble show with each character getting a chance to shine, Avon in 'rumours of death' Cally in 'dawn of the gods' Vila in 'city at the edge of the world' etc.
the Blake/Avon conflict has been replaced with Avon/Tarrant and to a certain extent some mistrust between Tarrant & Dayna/Cally. The gap left by Travis in the show as recurrent villain is ably filled by Servalan who now has a much more direct, face to face relationship with Avon and his crew. I do see what people mean though about a few too many episodes being based around Servalan's attempts to take control of the Liberator

My one gripe... with all the of the B7 boxsets so far is the fact that the Beeb have clearly not put the same money into them as with say the Doctor Who DVDs where you'll see a newly shot retrospective documentary for each story; something like that would be great for Blake's 7, either a look back episode-by-episode or a whole season's review.

Price: £13.98

4.0 out of 5 stars smoother sailing on a sinking ship, 25 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naught (Audio CD)
I have to admit that on first listen I thought the album was missing something; the immediate hook of songs like tablescrap or push button... but on further listens I have to say that 'Naught' is a much better, more even album than "there be squabbles ahead" there is more of an overall 'sound' to the album. that's not to say that even = plain. there is still accordion-fuelled metal, Elfman-esque shanties and actually some borderline anthemic choruses.

a strong ALBUM from go to whoa!
