The Master Game: Pathways to Higher Consciousness (Gateways Consciousness Classics)
The Master Game: Pathways to Higher Consciousness (Gateways Consciousness Classics)
by Robert S.De Ropp
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.26

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for those who know what they're doing., 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For those who have done a little work on themselves, and would like to see how some of the cults, gurus,
phoney teachers, tricksters (yes, and even genuine 'teachers') act, this book will be a help. I read it and loved it.
The more you discriminate on the different kinds of advice given, the better. Expensive, but in MHO, worth the dosh.
Warning. Don't fall for Gurdjieff rubbish. It's years out of date, and the likelihood is, the man lost his way years
before he setled in Paris.

So few pages, so much shorter than I expected, and written by a child. If you're genuinely researching the Oregon Trail there's much more detailed and helpful material.

It's slower than I'd like, but does everything I ask of it. For the price, it's a snip.

Wonderful in 1945. In 2014 it says nothing you don't already know. And shows nothing you haven't already seen.

Simple, strong, effective, uncomplicated, does just what I want without technology. And the suction bottom holds it firm to the work surface. Should last a lifetime, is easy to clean, and with nothing at all to go wrong. Buy it with confidence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh brave, new world, If only..., 13 July 2014
I'm a sci-fi nut, and I like it when the script tries to be literate. I accept as part of the plotline that one day mankind might create 'human' robots. Halle is meant to be one classy human being, hugely intelligent, courageous, observant, intelectually sound, wholly logical and trained to the ultimate. Otherwise she wouldn't have her job. So what makes her delete the camera footage? What makes her deny the fact she's pregnant? What makes her ask the doctor not to report her condition? These twists are completely out of character (nor, I believe, are they necessary). However, I've signed up for the series, and shall lie back and enjoy it. Much better than Ridley Scott's Promethesus but not a patch on Blade Runner.

Chris Reeve is great, but this script is daffy, The finest actors on the planet couldn't please me with this content. Sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars Alas, it failed the test of time., 15 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great movies in their time. But time marches on. Audrey is still amazingly pretty and can put up a good show.
But the scripts are slow, dated and require a great deal of suspending of disbelief. I watched a couple of the
films but they didn't please and I couldn't be bothered with the rest. Please remember this is a personal opinion.
You might like it a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acting under the microscope, 9 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Playing Shakespeare [DVD] (DVD)
Love Shakespeare and you'll love this series. Although just occasionally John Barton
imposes his view on actors who (in my opinion) are easily capable of interpreting the text themselves. Barton is a Shakespeare afficionado extraordinaire and his work with the actors reveals and expresses every nuance and inflection of Shakespere's verse. His exposition of the King Lear speech, 'Blow winds, and crack your cheeks' finally makes the rant bearable. His examples of how gentleness compells more than going all-out on a text, are a relevation

Judy Dench is staggering and it is no mystery why she is the grande dame of UK theatre
today. But then so are Ian McKellan, David Suchet and Ben Kinsley. Their renditions
of the speeches are insightful, compelling, moving and memorable. Indeed all the actors in the Ensemble are outstanding. In the end I preferred listening to them than to Barton.
But you can't have one without the other.

Anyone who wants a dose of Shakespeare in depth should see this series. It is intelligent, insightful and marvellous to listen to and to watch. You will also come to realise just how serious, committed and hard-working these actors are. There is nothing diletante or superficial, they get to the heart of the speeches and peel back the verse to show every
possible interpretation of it.
