5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant theories by a respected author, 27 May 2011
It seems the other reviewer does not understand or want to understand what Osman is saying. For a start, the Jews have no history and it seems they have completely invented a history of their people in the Old Testament, this is a widely accepted conclusion drawn from the complete lack of evidence. Not one biblical patriarch appears in the historical record, but the stories must of come from somewhere. Why some scholars are happy with this "dead end" i will never know.

The link that Osman makes between Yuya and Joseph is quite brilliant. They are the only two people in history that are described as being "a father to Pharaoh" also Yuya is the only Egyptian mummy to have his hands placed under his chin rather then across his chest and has Semitic features. This information is easy to find. If anyone thinks this theory is "wacko" then they clearly have their own agenda.

The other reviewer seems to completely ignore that fact that Jesus Christ is, in all probability, an invention. He also ignores the fact that Moses and Joshua are probably invented characters also. However, what we do know is that Akhenaten and Tutankhamun where very much real. We also know that Akhenaten was the grandson of Yuya and that he controversially introduced monotheism into Egyptian culture. Akhenaten and his followers where forced out of Egypt and this, along with the Hyksos explusion, has to be the exodus described in the bible.

Considering there is zero evidence for the biblical exodus i do not understand the resistance to accept these theories. As for Jesus/Joshua - these characters must be based on someone and Osman explains his theories clearly and makes them easy to understand. If you are interested in these subjects then i can only recommend this book as an informative and excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing book worthy of more then 5 stars, 25 Aug 2010
This review is from: Who Built the Moon? (Paperback)
I found this book to be truly fascinating. I read a few reviews here and as usual am disappointed by the lack of genuine support for the theories and questions things book generates. The facts and figures are unquestionably accurate and the conclusions are very interesting indeed. There are no answers to the hows and whys regarding the moon. There is no answer to why life (DNA) has come to be. And time travel is mathmatically possible even if we have not actually acheived it. With the progress humans have made in the last 100 years then everything is this book is entirely possible and actually makes sense.

I understand that the ideas put forward will be a stretch for most but try disproving them... its not going to happen. A brilliant book, a fascinating read and a truly life changing perspective on many fundamental questions that have, up until now, been unanswered.


30 Days Of Night [DVD]
30 Days Of Night [DVD]
Dvd ~ Josh Hartnett
Price: £3.65

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive modern horror, 4 Nov 2008
This review is from: 30 Days Of Night [DVD] (DVD)
Isolated in the most northern town of Alaska, the towns folk are preparing for the month ahead. Their position on the earth means that every year it is darkness for thirty days. A stranger has just come ashore and makes his way towards the town...
The film is wonderfully set up with good characters on a convenient white canvas of snow. There is one particularly memorable tracking shot in the midst of the action that is very impressive indeed. Once the action begins it does not let up. Eerie, scary and bloody - I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys horror or simply likes a bit of blood and a few scares. I give it 4/5 because the film maker in my head would have done it slightly differently.

5.0 out of 5 stars EASY THE BEST FILM IN ITS GENRE, 1 Oct 2008
This review is from: Porky's [DVD] (DVD)
My teenage years just wouldnt have been the same without Porkys. It makes me laugh just the same every time i watch it. The eggs, Cherry Forever, the shower scene, the headmasters office, Mike Hunt, Lassie, etc... are possibly some of the funniest in film history. Really! The headmasters scene is brilliant, i wonder if you can get outtakes or interviews with the cast yet? The film is also very grown-up about certain issues and makes you think. Not always going for the laughs it deals with the more sensitive issues expertly well. Brilliant. Classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing research, astounding results..., 19 Aug 2008
I have read a few of books from David Icke and they are all equally fascinating. This book is more then that. I recommend this to every person alive today, even a slight interest in the subject matter and you will be hooked. His delivery and his research are second to none. This man is Britains number one journalist. If not the world. I will be writing more once i have finished the book, lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cinematic experience, 4 May 2008
This review is from: Rumble Fish [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
Mickey Rourke, Dennis Hopper, Matt Dillon and Nic Cage all play there part in making this one of the coolest films i have ever seen. All the actors, although Rourke is curiously compelling, are over shadowed by Francis Ford Coppella's direction. Black and white, time-lapse skies and superbly crafted scenes make this film unforgettable and avidly watchable. The music score is also brilliant, unique and equally unforgetable. Watch it, buy it and enjoy...


Sid And Nancy (Special Edition) [DVD]
Sid And Nancy (Special Edition) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Gary Oldman
Offered by Rapid-DVD
Price: £12.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Brutally accurate performances for the leads, 4 May 2008
Having seen a lot of Sid and Nancy from real-life footage, i was amazed at how accurate Chloe Webb and Gary Oldman portray them both. Chloe Webb especially, the voice and actions are uncanny. Shame she didnt go beyond this role as Gary Oldman did. The film is funny, sad and entertaining from start to finish. Not to sure about the guy playing John Lydon, i suppose it is a good performance considering he is probably a difficult person to replicate. I loved this film and prefer it to Alex Cox's other work, although Repo Man is worth a watch. Top marks all round.


Mulholland Drive - Special Edition [DVD]
Mulholland Drive - Special Edition [DVD]
Dvd ~ Justin Theroux

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams and nightmares, 14 April 2008
A truly astonishing film from David Lynch. This film is in two distinct parts, it is the 'understanding' of these parts that will help in following the narrative. This is just my opinion and many will argue that the film is not supposed to be understood in any one particular way. I feel the first part is a dream/fantasy world created by Naomi Watts, when she appears later in the film, in the second chapter, this is her life in 'reality'. I could go on a lot more about this but there are many other elements to Mulholland Drive.
The main male actor (Justin Theroux) is a film director trying to cast his new project. But he is under pressure from the studios, portrayed as mafia-type gangsters, who want him to cast a particular girl in the main role. He resists this pressure and finds himself stripped of everything he owns. His mind is eventually changed by the mysterious 'Cowboy'.
My favourite scene is the bungling hitman. Accidently killing two extra people whilst trying to do his job.
Mulholland Drive has so many elements to it, it is hard to say for sure what it is about and who is doing what and why. Some have said it is two parrallel universe's happening at the same time, occasionally crossing paths with each other! Which ever way you look at it, it is a brilliant peice of film making. Similar to the Mona Lisa, the more you look at it, the less you know. High art. Genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars How movies should be made..., 14 Mar 2008
This review is from: Apocalypto [DVD] (2006) (DVD)
A brilliant movie, plenty of action, violence and a story that is classic in its telling. Wonderful use of settings and actors combine for a feast of visual treats and wonderous ideas. This film can be read on many levels and its message is as relevant today as it ever was... and as harsh. Will talk further on this film soon. Top marks all round though.

5.0 out of 5 stars High speed road movie that changed cinema, 3 Mar 2008
This review is from: Mad Max [1979] [DVD] (DVD)
High speed chases, open endless roads and nomad bikers in a post-apocalyptic vision of the future. Mel Gibson is Max, a police/highway patrolman who is determined to live his life clean and rid the roads of the scum that terrorise them. Events transpire that catapult him into another world, another outlook and new way of doing his job. A great film that looks as good as it sounds. Still modern and still plenty to admire. The film 'Saw' has a lot to thank this film for..!
