Argo [DVD]
Argo [DVD]
Dvd ~ John Goodman
Price: 4.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch!, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Argo [DVD] (DVD)
One of the best films I've ever seen! The plot construction and narrative pace, coupled with location shots, real time footage and dramatic music, all come together to produce an old time, hanging on the edge of your seat cliff hanger. The casting is spot on and the humour acts in almost a Shakespearian way to keep the whole situation bearable. If you haven't watched it then you simply must.

Anyone with any interest in the rise of the socialist movement and the role of Karl Marx's daughter in securing it, will be engrossed in this fine biography.

A very unusual in depth look at relationships particularly the role of women in society. I came across reference to this whilst reading Eleanor Marx: A life

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone with a social conscience, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book tells it like it is and doesn't beat about the bush re greedy landlords and those who keep several houses empty all year. It also dispels the myth that we have a housing shortage!!! Lots of food for thought about how to make society a fairer place.

Welcome to the Sticks ( Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis ) ( Welcome to the Land of Shtis )

Price: 16.03

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful!, 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis, is a French comedy that links wonderfully with the English north/south divide. You become so engrossed in the leading character's plans and his misconceptions about life in the north of France, that the humour is natural and hear warming. Not to be missed.

This review is from: Etre Et Avoir [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
If you want to watch one film this year that leaves you feeling better about the world and yourself, this is it. It reminds you that there's more to life than league tables and 5 A*. This shows you what teaching could be if left to teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story for the modern reader, 30 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is the second in the series and as I just loved the first, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and it didn't disappoint one bit. Now can't wait for the third!! Suitable for all readers - I am well over 50 but obviously targeted at the younger market - years 6-9 ; ages 10-15 but it really is a great read and I could see it as a film

5.0 out of 5 stars Water filters, 27 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These must be the bargain of the century. Why pay 4.00 pounds+ for a water filter when you can buy 3 for the same price simply by buying in bulk. OK they may not be the name you know, but they do the job just as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understand Facebook, 27 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very well made film but with Aaron Sorkin involved, who would expect anything else: he really is the master of a fast paced gritty script as anyone who has viewed The West Wing would agree. You get the inside, albeit, non validated, account of what Jesse Eisenberg was really like - and some of it's not too good but there's something for everyone in this film, whether you're a social network geek or just an old timer who wants to find out what makes networking so popular.

This review is from: Botany For Dummies (Paperback)
This is a great starting point for anyone wanting an insider's knowledge to the inside of plants. Explanations are clear and supplemented with appropriate illustrations. If you read this, you'll be well on your way to having a lifelong understanding of plants
