This review is from: The Edge [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
A highly recommended film if you like the ice and snow, and the relentless pursuit of humans by bears.There is a lot of human suffering if you like that, while Hopkins performance is quite brilliant. You also get to see the Australian "Body Beautiful", Elle McPherson, of Syrens fame, and may like the flights in a D.H. Beaver aircraft.The bear handler merits a medal of sorts, and by and large this is one of the better films of our time, well, 1998 then. J.H.


Roumeli: Travels in Northern Greece
Roumeli: Travels in Northern Greece
by Patrick Leigh Fermor
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

4.0 out of 5 stars Roumeli., 9 Sept. 2013

This is not his best book in my humble opinion, nor do I really appreciate his rapid changes from describing the wild terrain of Greece to sudden long harangues on Greek Mythology, though many students of Greece probably would. Very educational howsomever. J

A most interesting book, since I had no idea we tried to continue the fight against the Bolsheviks when Russia gave up the ghost during WW1.J.

Suitable for most old timers who lived through the WW", and for anyone with any interest whatsoever in the poor old UK during said war. Excellent acting, and every word distinct.

3.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Flight Sim. X (PC), 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Disappointing, and from the point of view of flying using instruments, Flight Sim. 2004 is superior. The improved scenery is not so important. I still do not know if the DH Beaver has wheels, or just floats. .J.

Quite satisfactory, but takes some getting used to after so many inferior joysticks. The rudder control is a bit fierce. J

I was surprised to find that audio cassettes were still available, but why do I have to waste my time with nine more woerds?

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment, 11 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not the best Goodman recording of All the Cats, nor was Blue Bayou the version I was hoping for, as sung by Roy Orbison.
