This is a very useful free app which allows you to track the weather in two different locations at any one time and to interchange between degrees Fahrenheit and Centigrade as you prefer. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not one of Matt Damon's best, 26 Jun 2014

This review is from: Green Zone [DVD] (DVD)
This is a good, competent action thriller set in Iraq shortly after the invasion in 2003. Matt Damon is convincing as an US army officer tasked with locating Saddam's elusive weapons of mass destruction.This movie pulls no punches in exposing international intrigue and in its implied condemnation of the war and especially of American involvement. Interesting, realistic and controversial but not one of Matt Damon's best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good projector but let down by noisy fan, 26 Jun 2014

This is a good value for money projector. It has two useful HMDI input ports and gives a reasonably good picture quailty. Unfortunately, it is let down by its noisy fan and poor badly written user guide.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Liam Neeson's best, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of Liam Neeson's best movies and certainly the most intriguing in my view. I much prefer its Alfred Hitchcock style plot to the rather more straight forward 'Dad on the rampage' story behind 'Taken' to which 'Unknown' has been compared. Set in Berlin, it is a real mind bender with major twists which takes Neeson's character to the brink of insanity. Ably supported by January Jones and Diane Kruger, this is a highly enjoyable stolen identity thriller which, despite mixed reviews at the time, did very well at the box office. Recommended.

Hypnosis: Advanced Techniques of Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis
Hypnosis: Advanced Techniques of Hypnotherapy and Hypnoanalysis
by Terence Watts
Edition: Paperback
Price: £34.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not to my personal liking, 24 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although Terence Watts' book came highly recommended in a list of suggested reading for Continuous Professional Development from my professional body, I found it rather disappointing, not an enjoyable read and took little away from it that I could use in my own Hypnotherapy practice. This is probably just a personal thing but I believe that there is a great deal more to consciousness, including the hypnagogic states, than the approach used by author which seems grounded in the viewpoint of conventional scientific materialism. He appears to take the position that human awareness is purely an epiphenomenon or secondary by product of brain activity and that our behaviour can be explained away, for the most part at least, by reference to mankind's historical ancestry ... or in other words that everybody can be categorized as either Warriors, Settlers or Nomads or variants thereof. I was also not at all sold on the Archetypal Parts Imagery approach in Part Two. Others may go a bundle on this book but it's not to my taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historically accurate and addictive WW2 first person shooter, 24 Jun 2014
As the second in the series, this is another historically accurate and totally addictive WW2 first person shooter within which we follow the further exploits of Sgt Matt Baker of the US 101st Airborne as the Allies struggle to secure the Normandy beachhead following the D-Day landings. There are some bruising encounters with the German 6th Parachute Regiment and the 17th Waffen SS Panzer Grenadiers and run-ins with the dreaded Nazi Tiger tanks. The game designers have taken great pains to ensure that you can execute classic US Airborne battlefield tactics i.e. 'Find them. fix them, flank them, finish them' but watch out for enemy units that are trying to do the same thing to you.
Highly recommended and very good value for money but kiss goodbye to your social life if you get into it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good free alarm clock app, 24 Jun 2014

This review is from: Alarm Clock (App)
This is a good and useful free alarm clock app which gives an attractive digital display. The app doesn't need to be running for the alarm to go off so you can converse battery power by allowing your tablet to go into standby power off mode. There's a good selection of sounds to wake you up. It also gives you a local weather forecast. You can't complain for the money. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great and highly unusual movie, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a marvellous and highly unusual movie --- one of Christopher Nolan's best in my view. Leonardo DiCaprio is great as the leader the leader of a disparate group of explorers trapped within a multi-dimensional psychic reality. There's really nothing quite like it --- highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great - highly original, 19 Jun 2014
This review is from: Limitless [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I enjoyed this movie on first viewing and it improves on a second. Highly original, Bradley Cooper is marvellous as a down on his luck writer --- living in New York --- who is persuaded by a relative to try a state of the art new drug which, although untested, to supposed to boost your IQ by an order of magnitude. With his intelligence expanded to super human proportions, Bradley Cooper's character initially has a whale of a time; that's until he attracts the attention of a ruthless Wall Street magnate played with chilling conviction by Robert De Niro. This a great, genre busting film. Highly recommended.
