5.0 out of 5 stars Freddie lives!, 11 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thunderous, melodic, heartfelt. A triumph!

If there were any proof that Freddie still lives this is it.

Such a beautiful realisation of his dreams and ambitions. Without a single doubt what he would have wanted. A priviledge to listen to. Bravo. Bravo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting and uplifting, 18 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story is riveting and offers an amazing insight into the battlefield actions that took place and I learnt a lot about what drove these young men to carry out the brave acts they did. How the author got through the war in one piece I'll never know and I breathed an unconscious sigh of relief when I got to the end of this uplifting memoir. Very well written. Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even if you hate rugby..., 5 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...this is a must see! That said the rugby scenes are wonderfully realistic. The two key performances, by Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon are faultless, with Freeman edging ahead with his portrayal of Mandela (which could easily have become an impression or parody but instead is spookily accurate.) This is a fabulous snapshot of the moment when South Africa began to find a unified voice and speak to the world. I bought it out of curiosity when the football world cup raised the profile of SA and was mesmerised by it. This is not a sports film it is a dramatic, moving account of rekindling the spirit of a nation captured by director Clint Eastwood at his best..

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are going to buy your kids one movie..., 2 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holes [DVD] [2003] (DVD) should be this one!

A little tip. Buy them the book first and read it before you watch the DVD. In fact read it yourself, like the film it's as enjoyable for adults as it is for children. A great cast: Sigourney weaver and Jon Voight are both on menacing top form. The real stars are the boys especially Shia Le Boeuf and Khleo Thomas. Add in Patricia Arquette and Henry Winkler in great cameos and you have the mix for a truly original, fantastic family experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nervous Day Comes Good., 15 Sept. 2008
This review is from: The Cosmos Rocks (Audio CD)
Cosmos Rocks (CD/DVD)

It is more years than I care to mention when I have woken up to the prospect of a new Queen album. The first listen is always a nervy experience, "Can it really be as good as the previous ones?".

Those nerves are trebled by this being the first studio album without Freddie.

Why did I worry? There will always be divided opinion but judged on the music alone what is not to love. Most of the Queen hallmarks are there, classic writing, layered vocals, eclectic moods and styles, riveting guitar work and of course Roger's drums.

What Paul brings to the party is a bluesy solidity which if I'm honest was slightly lacking in the poppier output in the last few albums. This is grittier and the better for it.

You can all carry on the debate over whether this should be a Queen album. I don't care! When three such talented musicians pump out something this good you could call it "Margaret Thatcher & William Shatner's Greatest Duets" and it will still be as good to listen to.
