5.0 out of 5 stars Stands the test of time., 16 Aug 2011
This review is from: Mafia (PC) (Video Game)
Like many I bought this game when it first came out and thoroughly enjoyed it however having repurchased it and played it again I feel that I was to young to fully appreciated the brilliance of this game.

The feel is very noir and the graphics for such a dated game are exceptional. The voice acting is top notch and the story is great.

Defiantly one for game enthusiast and connoisseur.

I've watched highlander from start to finish many times and always walk away thinking this is one of the best seasons. After the big twist I was really hope full for season 6.

Hero Living: Seven Strides to Awaken Your Infinite Power
Hero Living: Seven Strides to Awaken Your Infinite Power

5.0 out of 5 stars A way for everyone to live., 22 Jan 2011
Rudy Reyes has written a brave book, interweaving his personal narrative of a peripatetic childhood and tumultuous young adulthood as an Recon Marine with a unique philosophy of living. As detailed by Reyes, heroism is accessible to us all, if only we dare to know ourselves and challenge our limitations.

Certainly Reyes is experienced at pushing the edge (as is evidenced by his formidable military career in which he was a sargent in marine reconasance and his physique), but he does so with such disarming conviction and heart. In "Hero Living" Rudy Reyes builds upon our long-held cultural archetypes with a distinctly Eastern approach to strength building and character development. This is a person who has transcended his story, transforming personal challenges into profound spiritual lessons. For the person asking themselves what their purpose is in this life, how they can contribute meaningfully to their world and make themselves happy and vital today, "Hero Living" provides a compass.

Reyes also speaks to the experiences of our returning young Iraq veterans, and how war impacts a life, a family...ultimately rippling out to us all. He is a light to many and a much-needed voice in our public discourse on the realities of war. There are few who speak about the challenges inherent in returning home after tours of duty, trying to re-integrate into a country that shirks from confronting such painful realities. Rudy Reyes is a hero, in this writer's opinion, just for that. "Hero Living" is a deeply touching and inspired work.

Unlike a lot of new-agey sort of advisors, he absolutely acknowledges obstacles, but puts them in a slightly different perspective. His Eastern influences are clear and acknowledged, and it's kind of awesome that his earliest role models were Bruce Lee and comicbook superheroes.

For anyone looking to better themselves this book from a guy who has come from the bottom to the top really should be a must read.


Tokyo Majin: Complete Box Set [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Tokyo Majin: Complete Box Set [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Artist Not Provided

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and interesting anime., 2 Jan 2011
Tokyo Majin is an interesting and enjoyable anime.

It starts of by throwing you in the action which doesn't let up for the first episode leaving you feeling like you missed something. However the second episode goes a long way to filling many of the immediate blanks. This sets the premise for the show where the story bounces around with bits and pieces filled in latter episodes.

Despite or because of this I really enjoyed the show. Yes the Characters are a little stereotypical but with so many anime out there now a days is any studio really going to create a truly original character? The animation is very well done however it loses a certain something towards the end. The same can be said for the story. The first chapter (Dark Arts) involving Tendo Kuzuno is awesome and the martial fist chapter is interesting but the final chapter seems a little rushed and not fully developed.

this is a great show and well worth watching especially for the great price you can pick it up for on the SAVE edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing read, 9 Sep 2009
This review is from: The War at Troy (Paperback)
This book is excellent. It vivadly recreated the scence in my mind and realy made me feel like i was there watching the events unfold infront of me.

It is so clever written and weaved together that it ws near irresistable and impossible to put down. A great need not just for those interested in the history of the time but also anyone wanting a good fantasy story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 11 Jan 2009
This is an excellent show, with action, drama, science fiction and great charecter development all thrown in. I was unfamilier with the actors other that Amanda Tapping who was back to her best which made her a favorite with Stargate.

If you like such shows as Supernatural, Dresden Files etc i suggest you check Sanctuary out.

Just hope they do Season 2

4.0 out of 5 stars A clever and twisting film, 6 Jan 2005
This review is from: The Big Bounce [DVD] (DVD)
This is a very clever film that will throw your mind all over the place. With more Twists than a mountain road and with charecters seemingly changing the views and positions faster than a politician it at moments becomes hard to keep track off. But the film pulls this off very well and ends with more than one suprise. Owen Wilson is up to his usual tricks with the supporting cast all pulling much more than their weight and Morgan Freeman shines as the judge who everyone respects but knows mor than he lets on. Well worth the money and the time to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first, 5 Jan 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Whole Ten Yards [DVD] (DVD)
I loved the first film the whole nine yards so when i heard about this i had to see it. I never even heard it mentioned at the cinemas and thought i wouldn't get to see it but then found while in america. My copy is the region 1 version but i can only assume that it will be the same version released on our shores. Its absolutly hilarious with Bruce Willis playing a much more comical role and Matthew Perry up to his usual anticts were so used to in friends. A must with great picture and sound and many plot twists youll be captivated right till the end. Enjoy
