Confessions Of An Irish Rebel (Arena Books)
Confessions Of An Irish Rebel (Arena Books)

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, 9 Oct 2011
This is a well-written entertaining read. It is an interesting record of the time Behan lived in and the way the Irish were regarded by the English at the time. From his writings, I get the impression Behan probably knew more about drinking with his pals and getting into trouble than women! As a writer, he deserves to be better known.

This is an uplifting book about a middle-aged woman who has been through a difficult time but doesn't give up. An enjoyable book.

Perfect for a lazy night in, good story line, Cary Grant is elegance itself. The dialogue is quite funny. It is interesting to see how the female characters were portrayed at the time this movie was made.

3.0 out of 5 stars alright, 24 Sep 2011
I found this series funny when it first came out but now I find it disappointing. Maybe I have gotten older but it just doesn't seem as funny or as original as it was. It is just about okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must see, 24 Sep 2011
This is a great film set in Europe just after the war. As well as a superb plot and great acting, it gives you a chance to see Europe at that time. You get a feel of the place at the time.

This is a well-written informative book about the sectarian violence in Northern Ireland. It tells of the impact of violence on families and the way people cope.

1.0 out of 5 stars horrible film, 20 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Butcher Boy [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
Generally I like Neil Jordan's films but I hated this one. I thought it was senseless violent and nasty. Basically pointless.

This review is from: The Eagle [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Well acted, standard action drama. The actors are good and the plot's not bad. If you likes Gladiator, Spartacus...you'll like this movie. It's also a lot better than most of the action movies.

2.0 out of 5 stars just okay, 20 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This seems to be to be a book written by a woman over fifty with time on her hands and who wanted to make some extra cash. It's the type of information that you find in woman's magazines. It is good if you are friendless and clueless. Personally if you find yourself a bit bewildered at fifty you'd be better off speaking to your friends and getting their views. I found it a bit depressing but if you feeling low when you hit the big '50' and want to think about it....It's not a bad book but it's not original and you could probably find better information elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars good fun, 19 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Hangover [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
This is a good fun film for a Friday evening. It is not pretentious, quite original and the actors are good. You could watch it with a friend and have a few beers. The dialogue is hilarious.
