2.0 out of 5 stars A Visually Stunning But Basically Empty Experience, 10 Jan. 2016

This review is from: Mad Max - Fury Road (DVD)
The art direction is superb which is where it ends for me.

This review is from: As I Lay Dying (DVD)
I'd read the book so I knew what I was in for. The trouble is the writing style and prose when taken away reduce the story to a banal uncomfortable experience that no amount of cinematic effects or acting is going to replace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Above Average Sports Doc, 10 Jan. 2016

This review is from: Steep (DVD)
As extreme type sports docs go, this is pretty darn good.Several of the main players tell their stories and there's impressive footage of people doing daft high-speed runs in spectacular mountain scenery. One of the interviewees pops his clogs during production adding an emotional element that captures the risk of this activity and the lengths people will go to enjoy themselves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sliding About and Jumping Off Things, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Search for Freedom (DVD)
Basically its the story of how some kids with attention deficit disorder managed to earn a living as salesmen, from Sunday afternoon activities. There's plenty of dumb air head philosophising about being in 'zones' and in the 'now' which is their way of saying 'it demands a bit of concentration and some planning. Overall though quite entertaining.


Winsor & Newton A4 Hard Back Wire-o Sketch Book
Winsor & Newton A4 Hard Back Wire-o Sketch Book
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The bench mark in sketch pad paper quality., 31 Dec. 2015

Smooth but not shiny an excellent surface for pen and pencil. The ink does not spread in normal use and soft pencil can be blended without revealing the grain.Its also at the brighter end of the spectrum.Its like a thicker version of the discontinued A4 sketch pad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Crafted Rust Belt Drama., 14 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Out of the Furnace (DVD)
A fine drama, not as grim and slow as many make out.It's done with enough craft to keep it on the edge without plunging it into the abyss of desperation and hopelessness that a less accomplished team would do.

How the producers didn't get sued for plagiarism I'll never know. Its just another example of hollywood feeding on itself, recycled garbage with high production values.

The first book I've read by this author.I won't go into details but it is accessible to the general science reader and is less complex than other books on the subject of hidden variables.
If you think time is to do with clocks and measurement of change you should find something else to read.


The Outer Limits of Reason: What Science, Mathematics, and Logic Cannot Tell Us

This was a joyless grind at times.It did however provide some much needed balance and an insight into how science progresses.
