5.0 out of 5 stars A great, fun product that will satisfy most collectors., 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a GREAT item for people who can't afford/ don't want to pay for either the Weta or United Cutlery replicas. The staff comes in three attachable parts which need to be screwed together. The pieces blend really well together, and it's not glaringly obvious that it's in three pieces. The weight is impressive too; I feel like I could take down a Balrog with this thing! - The light is fairly bright, too. It flickers for a few seconds when you first turn it on (the switch is just below the crown), which makes it feel authentic. Overall, I'd give this staff five stars. It's a great piece for collectors who can't afford (or find!) the Weta prop.

The Wicker Tree (O.S.T.)
The Wicker Tree (O.S.T.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated, beautiful soundtrack., 29 Aug. 2013
One of the central themes of 'The Wicker Man' was its iconic soundtrack. The music captured the themes of the film and communicated them through a well implemented medium, that was the soundtrack.

Fast-forward 38 years, and you've got 'The Wicker Tree' - Whilst not as acclaimed as its predecessor, 'The Wicker Tree' is still a nice addition to the trilogy. The soundtrack is wonderful, but not quite as complex as 'The Wicker Man', and that has implications on the soundtrack. Most of the music is muzak-esque, and doesn't add the same weight to the scenes as The Wicker Man's music did.

However, the songs (Written by Keith Easdale) are wonderful! Especially 'The Fruity Song' and 'Time's Passing Frame'. One thing I dislike is that the song sung by Beth and the man at the piano during Delia and Lachlan's ball is missing...It really is a beautiful song!

My advice: If you're a Wicker Man/Wicker Tree obsessive, buy the soundtrack! Even if it's only for the songs...You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars It sounds familiar in places..., 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lyonesse (MP3 Download)
This song's wonderful...the whole album's wonderful.

But, has anyone else noticed that this song sounds alot like 'The Edge of Night' in 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King'?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best., 7 Feb. 2013

These Pan Pipes don't play the best tune you'll ever here, however, considering the VERY modest price, I can't complain too much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant..., 7 Feb. 2013

This review is from: A Man for All Seasons (Paperback)
It's Robert Bolt's 'A Man for All Seasons'...In my opinion it's one of the best plays available to the modern reader with an interest in this captivating historical figure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such an unappreciated soundtrack!, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unlike its movie counterpart, the soundtrack of Robin Hardy's 'The Wicker Tree' catches perfectly the themes which the film itself fails to grasp. The music is dark, comedic and suggestive all at once! Keith Easdale has done brilliant work here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glenn Close at her best!, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An absolutely stellar soundtrack, paired with a brilliantly expressive cast! - I've heard some people criticise Glenn for her 'weak' or 'feeble' voice, and while she is no Betty Buckley, Close brings a fragility and a new believability to the much coveted role of Norma Desmond.

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you've paid for., 6 Dec. 2012

This watch isn't bad for the price, but it often fails to keep accurate time. It's quite flimsy also. I can't see myself reccommending this to a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Prophecies of Nostradamus., 6 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let me begin by saying that I do enjoy Nostradamus' work - I find him entertaining and "informative", insightful and at times, witty. However, I do not believe that he was an amazing prophet...I think that his reputed wisdom is owing to modern interpreatation. At times I found myself struggling to draw a comparison with the predicition and the supposed meaning. I think that the author/interperator has wrapped the prophecies around events which happened at the corresponding time, not that the corresponding time wrapped itself around the prophecies of Nostradamus.
