1.0 out of 5 stars Three hours of utter tedium, 5 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Godfather (DVD)
Continually lauded as one of the best films ever made, it in fact amounts to little more than three hours of men sitting around talking. Imagine the most boring meeting you have ever had at work, double the boredom and then imagine it went on for three hours, then you start to get some idea of what watching The Godfather is like.

Yes, so at one point a guy wakes up with a horse head in his bed, but so what? It’s certainly not exciting enough to sit through the rest of the film just to see that. Just watch that scene on YouTube and move on.

It is another case of people telling you it is good, just because that’s what everyone else says, and they don’t have the courage to turn around and say ”Actually it bored the pants off me, I have no idea why everyone raves about it.”

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Trailer, 28 April 2014
This review is from: Rubber (DVD)
The trailer would have you believe this is a silly film about a tyre who kills people and is chased by the police. It isn't.

The tyre killing people takes up half of the running time, the other half of the film is about people watching the film (through binoculars). The actors in the film are half the time in the film and then half the time discussing whether or not people are watching and therefore whether or not they should continue acting.

It is utterly nonsensical, and at 85 minutes is an hour too long. Look it up on Wikipedia and get a better fuller description and then decide for yourself if you want to see it, but don;t pay any attention to the trailer it is totally misleading.


Shotokan Karate Handbook: Advanced (Advanced Edition)

1.0 out of 5 stars Displays a basic understadning for the very art he purports to teach., 25 Sept. 2013
The book is severely dated and the author makes the most basic fundamental errors when demonstrating his kata applications.

If you believe you will be attacked form 6 feet away by a Karate-ka using Oi-zuki, and you will "block" his attack and then he will stand perfectly still like a statue whilst you counter, if you believe you can magically sense attacks from behind and repel them without even turning round (I kid you not, this is actually one of his kata applications), if you believe your kata teaches you to turn in 8 different directions because you are training you to fighting 8 people at once, or it is teaching you to fight on boats or down alleyways with your back to the wall, if you believe Karate contains blocks, then this book is for you.

This is the sort of nonsense that was being banded about 30 years ago, but if you have any common sense it is best avoided, go buy something by Iain Abernethy instead.


The Pavement Arena: Adapting Combat Martial Arts to the Street
The Pavement Arena: Adapting Combat Martial Arts to the Street
by Geoff Thompson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do what it says on the tin, 25 Aug. 2013
If the book was called Adapting Shotokan Karate for the Street I would have given it 4 stars, but it isn't. The title suggests it will help Traditional Martial Artist but it doesn't. I study Japanese (i.e. NOT Brazilian) Ju-Jitsu, an the book is utterly useless to me.

It is only of use to people who study Shotokan Karate, even if you study Wado-Ryu it won't be that much help as the whole section on low stances if of no relevance to you.

It is not a bad book, but it advertises itself as something it is not. If you do Shotokan I would heartily recommend it, but if you do anything other than Shotokan, then don't waste your time, the author has much better books you can buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 21 Jun. 2013
Covers not only the armlocks themselves but also the pitfalls and when not to use them as well as when to.

Used this the create a lesson plan for Ju-Jitsu class.

As much detail as you will ever need on the subject.

2.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but out-dated., 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Defendu (Paperback)
Whilst the book may be of interest to those of us with an interest in the history and development of Ju-jitsu in the UK, the techniques are of little or no use in the street.

Whilst they may have been of value in the early part of the previous Century when it was published, they are not now. As a student of Ju-Jitsu I am well versed in the theories and principals of the techniques, I have even practised some of them and am fully aware of their limitations and pitfalls, particularly against a stronger opponent. The strangle defences in particular are laughable.

Whilst the book has some historical interest I would not recommend anyone buy it if they are looking for techniques to learn to use in real street self defence.

Dead or Alive: The Definitive Self-Protection Handbook (Summersdale Martial Arts): The Choice Is Yours - The Definitive Self-protection Handbook
by Geoff Thompson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars a MUST READ!!, 26 April 2012
Anyone interested in Self Defence MUST read this book. It contains essential information that will help you spot trouble and avoid it before you ever get to the stage of have to fight to defend yourself.

I have seen some utter rubbish taught in different Martial Arts classes in my life but everything in this book is pure gold. I have used some of the techniques in this book to defuse real-life situations (the "fence" being particularly useful).

I cannot recommend the book highly enough.
