Not quite as atmospheric as I expected.

I cannot write a review that improves on the description of the film on Amazon.co.uk's website. Suffice to say, I was held spellbound and loved it. Top marks go to the novel for creating such a wonderful story, and then the film-makers just added gloss: its brilliantly shot, the acting is first-class, and it's safe on my shelf for another viewing in a few years.

This book does exactly what it sets out to do - gives you the full script and intercepts it with information about how each character was cast, problems when the scenes were being shot, any squabbles that took place during filming, and much, much else. It's extremely well done and a must for those interested in making films, I would think.

This review is from: Forever Amber (Kindle Edition)
I thought I was buying the novel, 'Forever Amber', so of course I was disappointed when I received a score of a piece of music I've never heard of.

This review is from: Nowhere Boy [DVD] (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this recreation of John Lennon's early teenage years. I did not know he had such a fraught and troubled upbringing. The script is excellent and it looks good except for the casting. Aaron Johnson is far too good looking to be convincing as John Lennon. There must be lines of young actors who could have done an equally good job (if not better) and been more convincing. Paul McCartney is also poorly cast by a very thin, though admittedly well-acted, actor, because he doesn't look enough like Paul. The two sisters are, needless to say, convincing and perfectly cast. For those who like 'true' stories, this is a must.

A Line in the Sand: Britain, France and the struggle that shaped the Middle East
A Line in the Sand: Britain, France and the struggle that shaped the Middle East
Price: £6.33

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not knowing what the 'line in the sand' was, I expected this book to be about conflicts between Middle East countries. Instead, it's a about the perpetual squabbles, fights and terrorist acts between France and England after they divided up the Middle East in 1916 by drawing a line through the middle. In so doing, they gave birth to new boundaries for Jordan, Iraq and Palestine presided over by England; and to France, who presided over Lebanon and Syria. These squabbles and small acts of terrorism continued through both World Wars. The book highlights the wrong decisions that were constantly being made by politicians from both countries and the disastrous legacies they've left behind.

Amazing how this product, without washing my hair, turns hair that hasn't been washed for three weeks and is covered with hairspray and other hair products like oils and volumising wax, into soft and shining tresses! Some colours could do with slightly warmer tones.

Didn't get past the first chapter. Appallingly written, one-sided diatribe of the man.
