5.0 out of 5 stars Does what you would expect, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to apply provides protection, matt finish perhaps does't look as good as a shiny screen but probably more functional as there is less glare / reflection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much perfect, 4 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good close fit to my tablet, providing protection without adding too much bulk. Stand arrangement works well once you get the knack of lining up the magnetic catch that holds it in place. Minor quibble would be that it probably stands a little too vertical, but overall I am very happy with it


What's Stopping You Being More Confident?
What's Stopping You Being More Confident?
by Robert Kelsey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting analysis, unclear on actions, 4 July 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Kelsey writes from personal experience but has clearly done his homework, and in this book gives what feels like a comprehensive summary of currently thinking on confidence and lacking it. I found that aspect a fascinating read, both in respect of my own background, and as a parent thinking about what messages I am passing on to my kids. However, there are problems with this approach, with some subject areas being rather skimmed over in the need to keep the length down and be readable, and for the most part it is very readable.

Where I think it falls down is on the "What You can Do about It" aspect of the title, there is lots of advice here, but it feels a bit scatter gun. While the 7 step plan at the end is a bit vague. Now, I don't expect there to be a single simple answer, but a clear direction to the right road would be helpful.

It is though a book I think I will go back to - dipping into specific chapters from time to time - so it may well prove it's worth in the long run.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining enough (justabout), 30 Jun. 2013
Afterlife is a bit of an improvement on the previous Resident Evil Film, there is a bit more of a story and some characterisation which were sadly lacking before. The story though is increasingly focused on the Umbrella Foundation rather than the T virus infected mutant zombies who are reduced to a supporting role. Filmed in 3D some of this doesn't translate well to a 2D TV screen, while at points it borrows heavily from The Matrix and even seems to hijack a character from 300 (or is it Silent Hill). But fro all it's flaws there was just about enough to keep me entertained for an evening until the potentially satisfying ending was hijacked to set up yet another sequel ( I hate it when they do that!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A modern fairy tale?, 22 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Hanna [DVD] (DVD)
Hanna is a curious mix, ostensibly it a spy thriller centered on a teenager brought up in hiding by her secret agent father. But it adds to the mix a dash of brothers Grimm, David Lynch and a Clockwork Orange. So all is not quite what it seems, and for a 12 certificate it is pretty violent. It shouldn't work but just about pulls it off thanks to an excellent performance by Saoirse Ronan, though I was less convinced by Cate Blanchett as the CIA operative. The excellent score by the Chemical Brothers also helps.

It has it's longueurs, and the ending feels a bit rushed, but credit the director for trying something a bit different. A cut above the average.

2.0 out of 5 stars Running out of ideas, 22 Jun. 2013
Chaotic storytelling, paper thin characterisation, there really is very little to like about 'Exctinction' other than than the ever watchable Ms Jovovich.

3.0 out of 5 stars Empty, 18 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Shame [DVD] (DVD)
There is no question that Michael Fassbender (Brandon) gives an extraordinary performance at the center of Shame, naked both figuratively and literately. Trouble is I found the film itself almost devoid of content, an exercise in style. The story, such as it is, is told at glacial pace with long dialogue free scenes. While the soundtrack keeps reminding us how serious this all is. Thing is the more seriously the film took itself (and it takes itself very seriously) the less seriously I was able to take it. We know so little about the 'characters' presented that it's hard to care about any of them, perhaps this is meant to convey the empty ennui of the Brandon's life, if so it did it too well for me.

It's film with a lot of sex in it, but none of it is attractive, nor is it particularly explicit for all the films daring. While Brandon's ludicrous babe pulling powers must be pretty handy for a sex addict.

By the end I was resorting to FF to get through some of the scenes to to underwhelming and unconvincing ending, a poor film only raised to 3 starts by Fassbender.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still magnificent after all these years, 15 Jun. 2013
I first saw this on TV sometime in the late 1970s, it blew me away then and it still does now. Each time I get something different from it, back then it was the sex and the scariness. Now watching it as a parent myself it the moving depiction of grief. Venice as ever is magnificent.

Docked one star only because the sound on this DVD is a bit distorted, there may well be better versions around to buy.


Ulysses (BBC Radio)
Ulysses (BBC Radio)
by James Joyce
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £26.99

3.0 out of 5 stars A tricky listen, 14 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Ulysses (BBC Radio) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a review of the BBC Audio CD, not Ulysses itself

I've not read Ulysses and it has a bit of a fearsome reputation so a BBC Radio adaption seemed like it might be an easier way to approach it. We drive a lot on holiday so it was to be our holiday listening. Unfortunately we didn't get far with it. Right from the start Ulysses prose if pretty dense and a bit tricky to follow. Reading it as a novel I think I'd be checking back, re-reading sections. That's not practical on a CD. Add in the distractions of driving and it just wasn't working as a listening experience.

If you already know the novel and want to revisit it, or prefer audio books and are planning to give it your full attention then this might work very well. But I think I'm going to have to try the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality, but tricky to get on, 13 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Feels like it will work well as a protector, but the very precisely sized holes for camera and light sensor make it really difficult to line up when applying so I've ended up with a fair number of air bubble, a bit more tolerance would have helped.
