A Good Year [DVD] [2006]
A Good Year [DVD] [2006]
Dvd ~ Russell Crowe
Offered by MusicnMedia
Price: £4.45

4.0 out of 5 stars A French trip., 26 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Good Year [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
An enjoyable movie and a wonderfully escapist, romantic adventure guaranteed to get folk determined to move to 'la vie Francaise'.
I enjoyed the romantic construct (inheriting a vinyard), but have still not yet moved to France!
If you enjoy either Russell Crowe movies or France, yes, this is for you.

Bodum Spare Glass for 8 Cup Coffee Makers
Bodum Spare Glass for 8 Cup Coffee Makers
Offered by Harts Of Stur
Price: £9.85

5.0 out of 5 stars A glass beaker, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A glass beaker. It replaced a broken similar Bodrum 8 cupper. It hold coffee as designed to and it pours without dribbling.
It hasn't been broken yet and does the job it is intended to do.
So, all good.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bedroom TV with freeview., 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have had this for over a year and it is fine.
Now, arguably not the most stylish TV as eenclosures have become slimmer but the picture quality is fine and sound adequate - for bedroom viewing. The only real niggle I have it that the chanel change is slowish, but maybe all LGs or modern sets are like this as others seem to be the same. Overall though very pleased.


Samsung M3 Slimline 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - Black
Samsung M3 Slimline 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - Black
Price: £69.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job excellently, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quiet, small, and fast enough for me. Unobtusive and so far reliable. Good value too.
It is used, along with other back-up drives, as a large storage capacity unit for images.
I also have a Western Digital, another Samsung and a Seagate.
All do pretty much the same thing but I feel the Samsungs may well be the quietest.


Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places: The Complete Works
Stephen Shore: Uncommon Places: The Complete Works
by Stephen Shore
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars A photographers' photo book., 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautifully presented, produced and well rounded book that presents an aspect of Stephen Shore's work very well. The relatively large and landscape format does great justice to the large format images and the colour has a very negative film feel to it as opposed to a colour reversal, contrasty transparency one.
Some would argue the images seem hum-drum and ordinary looking, they may even say theres a bit of "I could do that" about them. I would say those folk are not looking at, merely seeing the pictures.
Anyone with a nostalgic nemory of what the US was like in the 1970's and 80's will really like this I believe.
It is a period piece this heavy book, and I like it tremendously.
Well worth the purchase and at a terrific price with excellent despatch - so great value


Sideways [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great movie about drinking and companionship., 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sideways [DVD] (DVD)
If you do drink (wine) then fine, you'll appreciate this film.Even if not you'd be hard pressed to dismiss it outright.
Sure it has gross moments and very funny episodes. Gloss over the 'gross' laugh at the funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life: Keith Richards (Paperback)
A REAL Rock 'n' Roll story.
Keef comes across a a textured and 'real' character. I'm prepared to accept that he write what he believes is true.
How would I know otherwise anyway?

Keep rockin' Keef!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay., 5 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a great Zep fan.
I galloped into this full book of anticipation and for some reason slowed about half way through.
I haven't actually finished it yet. Sorry.
