1.0 out of 5 stars Found at the bottom of Buggie cages......, 12 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The word I was thinking of rhymes with "Grit". It was badly made and had raw sharp edges so I sent it back. Yes, it matches my kettle but it’s not the same quality. Stay well clear…you have been warned!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Tomb is a super film, rich in colour, 3 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are two items on this disc but only one film. The Tomb is a super film, rich in colour, odd but likeable, and Poe at his best. Corman (director) said he felt this was his best Poe adaptation and I can see why. An evening however is a TV play with Mr Price narrating four stories. There are sets and Mr Price is dressed the part but it is just him. Not what were used to. That said he acts his heart out (literally in the tell tale heart story) but it was a tad disapointing as I was expecting the full works. That said worth having. As always Mr Price (should have been Sir if you ask me).

3.0 out of 5 stars Ham with you uniform?, 12 May 2014
I hover between a 3 and a 4 star review. Why ,well I'll tell you dear reader, the photos are fine, yes they are a bit oddly set out but the're clear and you can (generally) see the kit. It's the descriptions and the models that let the thing down. The descriptions are short and have little or no real detail. But I forgive that because I know what it all is (and I realise some of you don't) it's the models they look a little "hammy" pulling faces, pretending to smoke cigars, pointing and just generally looking a bit daft all stuff that's totally unnecessary (in my view) that and the fact there a tad untidy and not at all soldierly (untucked, crumpled etc) .
So what's good?
Well: There are plenty of uniforms which get overlooked in other books. For example, medical, a couple of tans and some USAF. So given that it's £8 here in the UK I feel it's worth having.
One other reviewer says get Kevin Lyles book (which I have) I aggree totally BUT that goes for £30+ IF (big IF) you can get a copy so this may not be a second place to that but it's at least on the track.
So in conclusion....Worth owning...oh Yes.
Could it be better....Definatly.
We'll see if part two is any better.


UNIFORMS & EQUIPMENT OF U.S. MILITARY A (Schiffer Military History)
UNIFORMS & EQUIPMENT OF U.S. MILITARY A (Schiffer Military History)

4.0 out of 5 stars A really good book, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
4/5 probably is a tad harsh I really like the book and have poured over it. So why not 5/5 I hear you cry......Well heres the rub, that final star is knocked off because there are a couple of editing errors (shame on Schiffer I say) and more importantly, the word NOTE is mentioned in every caption. Sorry Paul mate. I really find the constant..... "note the M67 puches" or ..."note the 2 quart water bottle" a bit annoying.
That said worth buying and well worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honest, I saw it!, 20 Feb. 2014

I'd forgotten this film, whilst remembering the "finger" I'd forgotten the ending (which I won't give away) but safe to say it's cheeky. So the Creeping flesh....does what it says on the tin....it creeps!

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Hack'n-slash!, 20 Feb. 2014
What a great film...Sleasy...yes! Cheaply made...Most deffinatly. Well worth owning...I'll say. Peter Cushing is a good guy bad guy in this and all the better for it.
In the end there only one thing to say about this film...Women, can't live with 'em, can't brutally murder them! Or can you?
