5.0 out of 5 stars War Horse for grown-ups, 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Often while reading you have to shake yourself back into this world, so intense is the atmosphere James weaves. Filled with a deep understanding of horses and humans, and of the liminal places where they can meet. Completely unsentimental, yet expressing great emotion and respect for his subjects, this is War Horse for grown-ups.

5.0 out of 5 stars The little book that could., 9 Aug 2012
`Stained Glass' manages to span the entire history of this luminous art form from its first appearance in the early Middle Ages to the end of the 20th century in under 100 pages. A beautifully and at times poetically written romp covering style, technique, material, reception, content, clients, artists, as well as haters and lovers of stained glass windows. Roger Rosewell leads the reader through this huge subject in a very entertaining and informative manner, and provides a useful check list of places to see, as well as a good bibliography for those who wish to delve deeper into the subject. Richly illustrated with excellent photographs, many of which are not `the usual suspects' one might find in other publications.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy cheap boring rubbish, 14 July 2012
This review is from: Stormhouse [DVD] (DVD)
I feel like I've been had - don't waste your money on this boring predictable rubbish.
Cheap special effects, stereotypical characters played by actors that never learned to enunciate, so half the dialogue is unintelligible. Not that you are missing much.
The sets were obviously so shoddy that they did not dare light them at all. Most of the time the screen is filled with black and a few smudges of grey or red.
The gore is some red paint and plenty of squelching sounds made by the foley 'artist' with a wet dish cloth.
Clearly made by bored performing arts students in the basement of Huddersfield Community Centre over a weekend.
