This review is from: Northern Soul [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
The story line isn't gripping, but the recreation of the Northern Soul scene is pretty impressive. I especially liked the early bits where the central character is discovering soul for the first time - an epiphany! Also the subversion of a local youth club disco - all that rang very true.

2.0 out of 5 stars A waste of a good author's time, 31 Oct 2014
A bit of a bore really. A waste of a good author's time. Mind you, I never enjoyed Ian Fleming's books, so I don't know why I bought this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a jug., 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say. It's a plastic jug with the handle in a funny place, but it does the job.


No Title Available

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomprehensible gadget., 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the price, I'd expected something fairly user friendly, but this is incomprehensible and the instructions are woefully inadequate. I'll probably sell mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but troubling images., 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ed Burtynsky is the photographer I'd most like to be. His photos are arresting and thought provoking. This is a good way into his work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device., 8 Mar 2014

This is a wonderful device. Easy to set up and use and ingeniously designed. It gives access to a world of broadcasting, both familiar and utterly obscure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Womack Wonder, 7 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has been a great period for wonderful albums from old hands. Bob Dylan has done it, so has Leonard Cohen... now comes this wonder from Womack, one of my best purchases this year. Five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but depressing, 16 Sep 2012
This review is from: The Ego Trick (Kindle Edition)
This is a readable and well argued introduction to philosophy of mind. Baggini dismisses notions of the soul, aligns with the 'bundle' theory of the self, finds accounts of reincarnation and resurrection implausible and seems to support a deterministic account of our mental lives. At the end I found myself thinking 'I hope he's not right about most of this'. Confirmed atheists of the Dawkins stamp will probably like it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cobblers, 11 Jan 2012
This review is from: A Lonely Place To Die [DVD] (DVD)
Frankly this is load of old cobblers. The rock climbing sequences don't convince and the rest is just a shoot fest. Don't waste your money.
