4.0 out of 5 stars Hong Kong action crime thriller... you know whether you will like this already!, 20 Feb 2014
This review is from: Drug War [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fast- moving, high octane thriller. Violent, complex with eccentric and unusual characters, brutal action and thrills. If you are used to cliched Hollywood action fdare, this is refreshing, genuinely exciting and very different. If you are an aficionado of Hong Kong thrillers, it's less remarkable. A good, fun thriller with much to recommend it, but it's not the peak of the genre. Solid.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar for GCSE, Complete Revision & Practice

3.0 out of 5 stars useful little revision guide..but very limited!, 20 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice helpful guide to spg for a GCSE student..or maybe an adult who is
unclear about grammar. But make no mistake, that's all it is. It won't replace working in class with a teacher' s input. Sorry, kids! It's no panacea. Decent, but not spectacular...

5.0 out of 5 stars simple to install, easy to use...recommended!, 24 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well, having read other reviewers' comments about how hard this was to install, I was very apprehensive. After all, you only get a cardboard envelope with an activation code- if that doesn't work, you've got absolutely nothing! So I went on the website link given, registered using the code given and my email...and there you go! Took maybe five minutes! It immediately identified one app I had with malware attached, and deleted it. No fuss. Quick, clean and easy.
Everyone should have some protection on their tablet. This seems to work well on my Nexus 7. Not too expensive.
And trust me, if I can install this easily, anyone can! Anyone!


Milius [DVD]
Milius [DVD]
Dvd ~ Joey Figueroa

5.0 out of 5 stars Throw away your preconceptions, come with an open mind, and this is revelatory!, 22 Dec 2013
This review is from: Milius [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So...John Milius. Right wing, gun crazy Republican who made Conan and the idiotic atrocity that was Red Dawn. Surfer, militarist, friend to much better filmmakers....
The mark of a good documentary is that it shakes your prejudices and makes you think differently.
And this does that.
Nothing remarkable in the style..talking heads. Clips, anecdotes...
But then..
Dirty Harry
Apocalypse Now
Farewell to the King
Jeremiah Johnson
Quint's speech in Jaws
Rome...
By the end of this documentary, you will admire the man's work and maybe think more of the man himself..
The mark of a powerful piece of work!
Recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars tough, stylish universal case...does what it says on the tin!, 22 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This case is ideal for a seven inch tablet. I tried it on a Nexus 7 and a Hudl, and it worked equally well on both. It is NOT ideal if you want your tablet in and out of the case....but why would you want to do that?
It is simple to fit, tough and durable, and it can be adjusted to fit any tablet, so you shouldn't be wasting your money. Look for a good price, then get yourself one!
Decent little case.
Not five stars, because it is a bit basic for a thirty five pounds case. If you can get it cheaper, go for it!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars if you loved his previous work,add two stars. if you're a newbie, stick to three!, 1 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Some excellent, thought-provoking concepts lie in here, and the book is definitely worth reading. However, these ideas, predicated on the benefits negative experiences can bestow on people, are buried in a morass of reminiscence and back- reference to his previous tomes,dulling the impact and killing the interest of the casual reader or the detached observer. Good, but not standalone genius good...

Rapesco Heavy Duty Punch, Hole Punch Zero - 65
Price: 20.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and powerful hole punch. Useful!, 19 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a tough, metal, heavy duty hole punch. It can do about fifty sheets at a time...which will save you a lot of effort and time. Used on paper to collate files, it is the bee's knees. Busy teachers and office workers-this is the one! Recommended. It's not small, it's not cheap. But it WILL do the job. And keep on doing it!

Edition: Hardcover
Price: 12.59

4.0 out of 5 stars clever and detailed ....but too short on diagrams!!!, 18 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good book. It presents some very technical and demanding scientific research in a clear readable style. For the layman, very complex ideas are presented in an easily understandable format. Good work!The lack of detailed visual presentation is frustrating, and it loses one star for that. Otherwise,excellent!!

4.0 out of 5 stars useful set of tips and ideas for teachers and education professionals, 18 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good little book,which I we could recommend to all teachers. It spells out, clearly and simply, ways in which social media can be used to support learning.No, it is not exciting, and the prose lacks vigour. This may actually be a strength,because it is high in clarity and readability. Worth buying, but only if you intend to use it!
