Importance of Music in the Narrative Structure of a Film: Steven Spielberg, composed by John Williams: Volume 1
Importance of Music in the Narrative Structure of a Film: Steven Spielberg, composed by John Williams: Volume 1
by Jonathan D. Bucari
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Terrible, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is possibly one of the worst books I have ever read in my academic studies. The book is poorly written and provides a mere historical outline of film music, with a swaying focus towards the work of John Williams and Stephen Spielberg.
At no point in the book does the author effectively address the importance of music in the narrative structure of a film with any real conviction. The author is someone who had studied film, however this sort of question requires a musicologist to address with any real depth. The author tries to address musical issues, but doesn't understand or know how to explain them. I implore you not to buy this book and look towards the work of musicologists such as Irena Paulus and her work such as her article "Wagner Vs Williams", which addresses this principal issue of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 31 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This television is a superb purchase, and a steal at the listed price. For gamers out there both the Xbox 360 and the PS3 look fantastic on this television. As for Blu-ray, the 100HZ processing really enhances the cinema experience, although at first (if you have not previously had a 100hz television) the experience is some what odd, almost as if the picture is been fast forward, however after a while it becomes clear it just looks like real life movement!
The product has only received 4 stars because of....Sound Quality, although not a major problem, LG's invisible speakers can not handle bass very well. However you will struggle to find a LCD television on the market that actually can deliver amazing sound quality out of the box. This would easily be solved by a cheap set of external speakers with a sub. Highly recommended!!!


Heinemann Advanced History: Mussolini & Italy: Student Book
Heinemann Advanced History: Mussolini & Italy: Student Book
by Mr Edward Townley
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 27 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Edward Townley is one of the leading historians on Fascist italy, and this book is superb. His writing is not only clear but creates good and supported arguments for all key aspects of Mussolini's regime.

The final section at the back is one of the key points! I had studied Mussolini at A2, and this section addresses the style of questions you will be asked, the topics that you will be questions are, and basically what the answers are!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh!, 27 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is purley a narrative effect, its great to getting to grips if you are studying staling on the new AS, but having studied Stalin on the previous A2, its not great.
BUT for the new AS go for it as it will introduce and re-affirm your knowledge!

4.0 out of 5 stars You will soon be a Piano Man too!, 27 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The price of this product is absolutley fantastic contatining some of Billy Joels greatest hits such as Piano Man, Uptown Girl, Goodnight Saigon, Just The Way You are, She's always a woman, My Life.

So there is indeed a good selection, but there are some out of greatest hits 1 and 2 that are not in there as this is a selection, with the full selection costing double the price.
If you are after just these songs go for it, but if your a die hard Billy Joel fan, invest in the more complete volumes 1 and 2.
