1.0 out of 5 stars which reviews do you believe ?, 2 July 2012
I have a fool proof way of deciding which reviews to believe in this sort of situation. Have a look at the reviewers full list of reviews and if they have only reviewed this one product chances are its an advertising stunt. Most people who review will review lots of different items not just one. See what you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Exorcism, 27 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Last Exorcism [DVD] (DVD)
If your idea of a horror film is - six teenagers go off to a haunted house for a raunchy weekend with enough booze and drugs to sink the Arc Royal, flashing tits and bums and shouting "Oh my God" until a drooling piece of moulded rubber appears sporting fangs and spoils it for them, this isnt the film for you.
Alternatively, if your idea of a horror film is some weak, conveyor belt vehicle for a wannabe starlet, complete with gratuitous bad language and stunning if only special effects coupled with the contents of the local abattoir skip scattered liberally everywhere - again, this film isn't for you.
If on the other hand, you like solid characters, a damn good, plausible story line with atmosphere and building tension, coupled with an unpredictable yet climactic ending - this could well be the film for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of pure genius., 16 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Tree of Life [DVD] (DVD)
This film was not made for the mass market so if you are looking for something to settle down to with a packet of pop corn and a beer etc it isnt the one for you on this occasion.
It is brave in its attempt to tackle such a subject, profound in its innovative ways of offering us insights into a more theosophical view on life and visually very beautiful, with some spectacular scenes of the cosmos to boot.
Its approaches concepts like radical awareness in a subtle and subjective way, you have to watch this film in that frame of mind or you miss half of it - watch the background and be attentive to the whole scene and a greater story emerges, not least by virtue of our inner response to it.
We see the unfolding of the manifestation alongside the growth of a child in macrocosmic/ microcosmic harmony - yin/yang - as above so below etc.. We see the turning point at which Love is first realised and the yearning for return, there is also some beautiful imagery for those with deep meditative experiences to draw on.
Truly a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars And so it goes, 18 Mar. 2011
This review is from: And So It Goes (Audio CD)
Absolutely excellent, a sort of cafe del mar number 4 meets midival punditz.
Real red eye chill out music but not the same track rehashed over and over, a wealth of variety and ambience. Suggest listening to "Jamming with Marco" by kaya project on youtube as a general guide though there is a definite and very enjoyable eastern flavour to many of the tracks.
Love it!

Mary's Song: Living Her Timeless Prayer
Mary's Song: Living Her Timeless Prayer
by Mary Catherine Nolan
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Mary's Song, 23 July 2010
This book is excellent as part of formation study and meditation as well as private inner life. Written by a Dominican whose Charism is to teach anyway, this book is valuable to all Orders as it does not lay heavy focus on one particular Charism aspect but offers a deep and beautiful insight into the vocation of Our Lady for our own inspiration and growth as well as opening doorways of inner opportunity for devotion and the manifestation of Her changing discipleship and advocacy in our own every day lives, which inspiration and direction can often be sparse in Oblate life. A book to be read again and again, chapter at a time and I assure you, you will find something different there of relevance and import on every occasion.

CLAIT Plus Student Workbook: Student Workbook 1
CLAIT Plus Student Workbook: Student Workbook 1
by Alan Clarke
Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING !!, 23 July 2010
in fact this book does NOT come with a cd rom, it is the teachers book which costs about £100 that comes with the cd rom and this book is useless unless you have access to the cd rom material either through classes or by owning the teachers book itself in which case you dont need this one. the reviews saying that a cd rom comes with this book are incorrect and are merely echoing the product information which makes me think they are not genuine reviews by real people but just the usual new book hype presented by the publisherin a more plausible format. However,I do stand to be corrected by the reviewers if they would like to tell me on this forum where they obtained a copy of this book with the cd rom? I am sure other duped buyers would like to know too.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DAILY MISSAL - NOT THE SUNDAY MISSAL., 28 April 2010
This review is from: Weekday Missal (Leather Bound)
This book is exactly what is required for the following of weekday Mass and contains all relevant information on Saints days etc as well. In the product review it states that this book covers all three years but in fact the week day Masses follow a two year cycle and so do not be alarmed when you find it only covers years one and two. It is the Sunday Mass that follows a three year cycle and many of the reviews here are for the Sunday Missal so check to see you are reading the right review.
Other than that, this is a book for life in more senses than one.
Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midival Punditz, 14 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Midival Punditz (Audio CD)
This is Bhangara meets red eye chill out par excellence. It knocks Cafe del Mar into a cocked hat with its beautiful Asian leaning. There is an extract from this album on youtube somewhere and its well worth a listen, it will give you a feel for the whole album and I think it is an album you will love whatever your aationality. Fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing short of excellent, 2 May 2009
This review is from: Seed (Audio CD)
I'm a Roy Harper fan and was introduced to Nicks great talent through Roys music. This is an amazing album, not a son trying to walk in his fathers footsteps, more an inherited realisation of unique ability to make THE most beautiful feasts for the ears and the mind and the soul. A very welcome and inspired breath of fresh air compared to formula music and radio station pap. I recommmend this album highly, I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shy People, 11 April 2009
This review is from: SHY PEOPLE (VHS Tape)
This is a really enjoyable film set mostly in the Bayou. The story follows a city journalist when she takes her streetwise daughter off to the Bayou to find a distant branch of the family thinking that her blood relationship to these people will afford her open access to their shy way of life and offer her a good story. On first impressions it seems that these two families have very little in common, the shy people living their lives governed by superstition and traditions of a long bygone era and the sophisticated city family so far advanced from them technologically but as the story unfolds, after intitial introduction these two cultures come into real contact with eachother and the mix of raw emotion and aspirations creates havoc and underlying tensions are pushed to breaking point. Barbara Hershey is absolutely remarkable as the dictatorial matriarch of the shy family, a must see for Hershey fans.
