Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asterios Polyp (Hardcover)
Brilliant theme, and extremely well drawn. I like water colour paintings and this whole book looks like a collection of watercolours.

3.0 out of 5 stars Superb camerawork and acting, but..., 19 July 2011
This review is from: The King's Speech [DVD] (DVD)
Right, to put this in context: The movie basically talks about the story of a very privileged individual, who is trying to overcomes his speech impediment with possibly the best professional help available. He then delivers a canned speech, with assistance during what was (and hopefully will always be) the worst war seen by mankind.

It really puts the hardships of the soldiers into context, eh?

As a story then, this has flaws, well not the story it is more about the presentation of the story. Personally though, I would give it 5 stars. Read on:

The camera work in this movie is SPECTACULAR. Imagine really professional (available light) shallow DOF portrait photography and apply the general theme to the movie. I cannot imagine the amount of discipline the actors would have had to follow( Distance from the camera and maintaining attitude w.r.t the lens etc.) while delivering really powerful performances. The direction is fantastic as well, but the cinematography and acting in this movie are the real stars! Chuck the WW2 context aside for a minute and this is a very, very rich movie experience otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars masterpiece, 19 July 2011
One verdict only:

Get this movie.

It is the JFK of this decade. mind-blowing editing and spectacular acting. Justin Timberlake is awesome in his role as Shaun Parker!

p.s'. If you really want to get a feel for the music, fire up your sub woofers. Puts a different complexion on the background score.

Great DAB radio. Decent sound as well...so long as you don't play it too loud. EQ options do not bring out the base, need to customise EQ for base and also check the loudness option in the menus.

Did the trick for us. Really good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great buy, 19 July 2011
This review is from: Logitech Harmony 300i (Accessory)
devices controlled:

-Panasonic Viera TXp42s10 (I think I have the model number right)
-XBox 360
-Sky+ HD box

This remote is great...not sure how the higher spec versions could have improved on this one (save for the RF remote, which could control the Harman Kardon speaker dock as well!).

One gripe (it was not directly an issue for me), was the ability of the remote to learn functions from other remotes. I tried it on my father's Yamaha RXv 367 A/V Receiver and it wouldn't learn too many functions. I suspect the database will be updated shortly (the yamaha is a new model), which can resolve the issues. But, until then it remains a potential glitch.

I would absolutely recommend this to everyone with under 4 devices to control. It is well built, comfortable to hold and extremely convenient to use.
