Caesar Must Die [DVD]
Caesar Must Die [DVD]
Dvd ~ Cosimo Rega
Price: 6.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowingly good, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Caesar Must Die [DVD] (DVD)
Julius Ceasar presented by the inmates of one of Italy's high security jails. Ceasar played by a mobster, the conspirators by dealers and murderers all of whom have lived like the Republicans in Ceasar's play but are acting these parts of the fractious rulers of the world while being confined for life. This makes a unique scenario and powerful performances which bring this classic piece to life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understated but very good, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Countermeasures stories are a "Dr Who spin off" and this should not put you off if you enjoy scifi or audio drama. Dr Who and his companions are absent and these stories are a new take on Quatermass 'whatifery' and not a time hopping odyssey. They make up an engrossing expose of a deeper mystery while each being an enjoyable and well presented story. One can spend much more and get much less pleasure so I commend this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A serious and well written history, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book provides a well researched and readable overview of a crucuial turning point in the history of the world which Western readers have little opportunity to investigate. The history is fascinating and answers many questions about the end of the Roman empire and the rise of Islam.

This review is from: Canta (Audio CD)
A nice cross section of Fiorentino's career which provides cancions enjoyable (and danceable) in their own right as well as tracking Fiorentino's arc as a cancioner who worked with some of the great bands and arrangers. I love it!

This seems a good product but the lousy Chinglish directions make using it such a struggle that I never use it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Candombe Lives!, 20 April 2009
This review is from: Utopia (Audio CD)
Caceres is a gravelly voice, a lion's presence on stage and on this CD, a comedien, a commentator on Life (especially BA life) and this is a great CD. The rhythms of the Candombe are stirring and lend themselves to the aliteration of the lyrics and even if you don't understand Spanish you can get the gist of what is being sung (and what could be danced!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Venerable but bang on, 20 April 2009
This is a very helpful book about a very challenging subject. I am lucky enough to belong to a sociable Club and have the benefit of lots of advice as a beginner. This book provides the wealth of experience and the framework that allows me to put the advice into order and improve my pigeon shooting by miles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! Bravo!, 20 April 2009
Piazzolla composed and performs brilliantly! The La Camorra Suite is a rhapsody of emotions encapsulated in the virtuoso performances of Astor and his ensemble. In addition, the performances from the score of "Sur" make this one for everyone who listens to Astor Piazzolla.
