5.0 out of 5 stars great fun, 23 Oct. 2011

It's great to see a TV that hasn't aged too much. Very funny, could be regarded as not politically correct but than neither were the seventies when it was made.

3.0 out of 5 stars not her best book, 18 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Saints and Sinners (Paperback)
I have read a number of recent books by Edna O'Brien and I didn't think that this is one of her best. Maybe she is getting tired but the stories were not that original and the characters were a bit too easy. Instead of buying this book, I would suggest going for another, better recent book by the same author.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good read, 27 Sept. 2011
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 Sept. 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.


The Third Man: Special Edition [DVD] [1949]
The Third Man: Special Edition [DVD] [1949]
Dvd ~ Orson Welles
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars a must see, 24 Sept. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars informative, 24 Sept. 2011
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 Sept. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good movie, 20 Sept. 2011
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.
