Mulan: Legendary Warrior [Blu-ray] [2009]
Mulan: Legendary Warrior [Blu-ray] [2009]
Dvd ~ Wei Zhao
Price: £9.14

4.0 out of 5 stars Great film., 7 Dec. 2015

Great film, gives a more life-like (if dramatised) view of the legend than the Disney film. It is obviously subtitled so if that puts you off, don't buy it. Looks lovely on blu ray.


Richard III and The Princes In The Tower
Richard III and The Princes In The Tower
by Alison Weir
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling and Fact-based, 1 May 2015
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There are elements of speculation, as with ALL historical research, however Weir derives meaning from contemporary accounts and evidence. A lot of reviewers on Amazon have criticised her for being biased but with the evidence, Richard III was not a well-liked monarch according to public opinion at the time. Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of readers have jumped on the bandwagon of denying that Richard III had any part in the death of the princes in the tower, which has affected this book's reception.

I found this book informative and compelling, and I will definitely be buying her other books.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting insight into the mind of a holocaust survivor, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shawl (Kindle Edition)
An absolutely amazing text that is not famous enough for its psychological representation of the troubles that occur after an atrocity such as the holocaust.
I found it a completely new experience to read something that depicted the aftermath in the life and mind of a woman who has suffered. People want to know or learn of the suffering, what the persecuted went through, rather than caring about how the holocaust ruins lives decades after it ended.

I found it heartbreaking that "there is no life after."

5.0 out of 5 stars great play!, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great example of 18th century satirical drama, it is both bitter and incredibly funny. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys satire, and not a bad version for study either. Although there were parts missing from the original play, they are not usually too significant.

Utterly fantastic film! It deals with a very gritty story and it's absolutely beautiful in it's execution. I love all the twists and turns in the narrative, and it is definitely in my list of recommended films.

This film is massively funny. If you like Mel Brooks, this is a must have. I absolutely loved it. The casting is brilliant and the concept is great.

I highly recommend this film. It was one of the first films that dealt with the concept of Artificial Intelligence and, for its age, it is stunning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film., 29 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Lady Jane [DVD] (DVD)
I highly recommend this film if you like period drama films. Helena Bonham Carter is wonderful, as is Cary Elwes. The historical accuracy may not be completely perfect, but the story is nice and the basic historical facts are included. I actually never knew that there was someone other than Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scotland that was heir to the british throne after Edward, so it taught me something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Games. Great value, 29 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great price for three very good games. Since I bought this I went and got the special edition of Devil May Cry 4. If you like hack and slash games and don't mind the ps2 quality and the annoying camera angles, the games are brilliant.
