1.0 out of 5 stars Ticks every Buddy Cop Cliche in the book. Awful ..., 31 Jan. 2015
This review is from: End Of Watch (Blu-ray)
Ticks every Buddy Cop Cliche in the book. Awful. Utterly Awful. Totally unrealistic too, as the Cops, our heroes fail to shoot or strangle any innocent unarmed civilians (I hope that's not a spoiler).

2.0 out of 5 stars Approximately 60 minutes too long, 6 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Of Gods and Men (DVD)
Beautifully filmed. Absorbing and believable portrayal of the dilemmas faced by these dedicated but tragic monks. However, seemingly endless footage of them praying individually and particularly as a group made time feel as though it was crawling slowly towards an inevitable cold death. I usually have a high threshold for such things but this movie felt about a week long, but on reflection: approximately 60 minutes too long.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oliver Stone Directs Miami Vice in California, 14 April 2014
This review is from: Savages (Blu-ray)
Awful: Vacuous Tripe. Cliched dialogue, shallow unbelievable characters and 'acting', cheezy plot-line and music to match. I got the impression that Oliver Stone, great director though he can be, had been commissioned to make a movie of Miami Vice set in California. Avoid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, still not much has changed., 25 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There might be a black man in the white house but the house is still white as are almost all senior politicians in the US. In this sense, the sentiment and the message in this film is as true today as it was when it was made in 1970. 43 years later the country is just as racist and just as divided. There are some wonderfully comic moments in the film, the premise is faultless and the use of a traditional middle class white family with 2.2 kids living in suburbia in a sitcom pastiche is perfect. Great performances. However, I thought that, compared to 'Brother From Another Planet' by John Sayles, which covers the same subject matter and asks the same question (How come, despite the changes put into effect by the civil rights movement, this country is still so damn racist?) it is a little dated and some of the humour doesn't really work any more but a very important movie nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raucous, rowdy, the soundtrack to Revolution., 20 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Manifeste (MP3 Download)
As the opening to a movie, it's second to none, although it perhaps could have been saved for the beginning of an apocalyptic revolutionary disaster film: raucous, rowdy - the soundtrack to Revolution. Love It.


A History of Bombing
A History of Bombing

Price: £8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars The Humanity of the author is equalled only by the inhumanity he graphically describes., 28 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Bombing (Paperback)
Anyone with an interest in how our society is the way it is should read this book. Anyone with an interest in 20th Century history should read this book. Particularly those interested in the history of the 2nd World War and the part played by Britain and the Allies who have been taught the accepted narrative of our history in school and via the media. In fact, this book should be required reading as part of British history course curriculums. The Humanity of the author is equalled only by the inhumanity he graphically describes. This book illustrates the calmly, calculated methods used by intelligent, respected human beings to have acts of mass murder committed on their behalf against their fellow human beings. The only reason I don't give 4 Stars, as I would with Lindquist's 'Exterminate All The Brutes' is the occasional difficulty encountered on the odd occasion one puts the book down then picks it up trying to find where one left off (it's designed to read in sections, requiring the reader to move from numbered section to numbered section rather than page to page). I can't imagine what the Kindle version is like to read, if there is one.
