The Missing and the Dead (Logan McRae, Book 9)
The Missing and the Dead (Logan McRae, Book 9)
by Stuart MacBride
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Macbride delivers a quality crime fiction, 31 Jan. 2015
MacBride is a fantastic crime fiction writer. Winning an award is truly justified. The novel tick every boxes of what I expect of a quality crime fiction. The plot is gripping and thrilling. It is based around notoriously dangerous criminals roaming around the street of Aberdeen including drug dealers and paedophiles. The attention to details of police procedures and processes are richly insightful and well used in context of the plot. The characterisation is excellent. Logan is a comical character. He is vocal and argues with the senior peers. He now has been given responsibilities to take charge of a department. How does he cope? There are questions raised about man management skills. Can he prove a point? He is a well developed and engaging character. Macbride latest novel is gritty and dark piece of novel.. This is what a call crime fiction of the highest order. I would truly recommend the novel if you are fan of crime fiction. Macbride is ranked highly in the field.

Beauty & the Beast [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
Beauty & the Beast [Blu-ray] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Gary Trousdale
Price: £13.00

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Disney animations, 10 Jan. 2015
Sleeping Beauty and the Beast is undoubtedly one of the best Disney animations of all time. It rates highly alongside other Disney classics. The magical and enchanting settings, musicals and characters shine strongly in this well crafted animation. It is based on a French fairytale published in the 18th century. Disney is skillful in creating fairytales in its unique style.

It tells the story of a prince who has been transformed into a beast as act of punishment for being arrogance and a village girl Belle imprisoned in a castle. Does romance sparkle between the two? It is magical and uplifting animation. Belle embarks on a new life beyong the village. The discovery of a castle led to the beast character. The father and Belle separate. Does the beast show a soft side? He looks terrifyingly. Disney always show there is a positive outlook of life. The storytelling is wonderful, characters are engaging and the animation beautifully depicted.

I throughly enjoyed it. It is one of the best Disney animations I have seen. It ticks the boxes of what I expect of a Disney animation

5.0 out of 5 stars A war film of the highest quality, 30 Dec. 2014
Unbroken is a war drama film based on the life of USA Olympian and athlete Louis Zamperini. It is a true story. The film opens up it account showing US Air Force on a dangerous mission against the Japanese occupying an island. There were bomb attacks. Few members were injured in the first scene.These scenes are distrubing and hollowing to watch. There are high levels of violence. It expertly recreates the scenes of world war 2 involving air strikes in high altitudes between opposing sides. As you can imagine these strikes were scary and immensely dangerous. Louis survived with few US troops, but later the plane sinked killing most of the troops on a new mission.

There are flashbacks showing Louis as a troubled child. His family background was Italian American. He stole, took alcohol and was a victim of bullying. His life reformed by participating in sports by showing promise and potential. He qualified for the 1936 Olympics during Hilter's terror reign and the famous historical episode featuring black US athlete Jesse Owens in a Nazi controlled Germany.

Louis miracalously survived in a deep sea for 45 days with two US troops. Sadly one troop lost his life later on.This is one of the most upsetting scenes, almost shedding tears flowing in my face. As you can imagine, the ocean is a highly dangerous place with sharks lurking around known to be extremely viscious predactors, high waves and enemy planes high above in the air with armoury in full flow. How did Louis survive the epic journey? The ordeal was not over as the two troops captured by the brutal regieme of Japanese, who were close allies to the Germans. The two troops were tortured and deeply interrogated by the Japanese, later transferred to a prisoner of war camp. These scenes are distrubing and distressing to watch. How did Louis survive the terrible ordeal? The conditions prisoner endured were appalling and faced excecution if they did not disobey orders under the terror of the Japanese troops. It is graphical to watch.

The movie depicts the brutality and cruelty inflicted on the prisoners. The movie bring to life on how World War 2 unfolded. It is very well delivered. Anglelina Jolie debut is impressive and shows her potential as a director for the future.It is tense, engaging and as viewers we are praying for the characters survival. It questions the spirit of humanity. Louis life is well documented, as it highlights what happens to Louis in the end credits.The authenticity of the movie reflects the true events as unfolded. It is a war drama film of high quality. If you are into historical and drama films, I would recommend Unbroken. Some film reviewers harshly criticized, thus receiving mixed reviews. In my personal view the movie is flawless and receives a positive review from me, in total disagreement with the negative reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasy movie of the highest level, 14 Dec. 2014
The Hobbit : The Battle of the Five Armies is an epic fantasy adventure film directed superbly by Peter Jackson. It is based on the novel by J K Tolkien. It is the final installment in the series.

It is a fantasy movie of the highest order. The balance between story telling and action scenes work well. The characters are well developed. The insight into different groups is well explored. It is an epic between good and evil. It tells the story of how new threats affect the kindgom. The dwarfes inside Lonely Mountain face the threat of the sinsister creature dragon Smaug who destroys a whole town. Bilbo Biggins is the central character featured in the movie, as you are about to find out. It is an epic battle facing the kingdom involving dwarfes and elves. The group expose their diferences. The Orc are the main danger, who bring a large army for attacking the dwarfes, but elves comes to the rescue. The battle scenes are bloody and gruesome. There are emotional scenes. There are old scores to settle. It reaches a perfect ending. The dialogues and script wiring is top class. The special effects are stunning. The movie fires in all cylinders of what I expect of solid and quality fantasy adventure.

I would recommend the latest installment if you are a fan and love a quality fantasy adventure movie. I throughly enjoyed it.
