5.0 out of 5 stars Classic!, 13 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Legal Eagles [DVD] [1986] (DVD)
This is a great film! The comedic parts are great, and Redford and Winger get on great on screen!

Hannah's character, however, is a bit more annoying and the story ending rather silly.

Nevertheless, a great movie to watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good "flying disc"!, 13 Nov. 2011
I can't say that this disc has any educational value, but it does do what it's supposed to do well! It flies true and straight and is weighted well - it's not as heavy or rigid as an old disc that my friend has.

Good stuff!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 13 Nov. 2011
This is a very bright bulb and there's nothing complicated about it - it works like a normal bulb. Just take note that it is larger than a typical bulb!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent headtorch from excellent company!, 13 Nov. 2011
I got the Apex years ago when it first came out. It's brilliant! I use it mostly for cycling home at night - the peripheral LEDs are generally good enough for me, but the main spot LED has been excellent when cycling in fog/snow - it cuts through it!

The only "downside" is that it's made of plastic, so it will break/crack if you don't treat it well. However, having said that, Princeton Tec will fix/replace it within reason and warranty - they have excellent customer service! I got the latest 200 lumen version as a replacement - fantastic!!!

Highly recommended for cycling/camping!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 13 Nov. 2011
It's light-weight and easy to use. The three lighting levels are useful. I cycle everyday and have to go down unlit roads at night. The throw is good enough for me, and the beam is more square-shaped which uniformly lights up the road for me (i.e., it's not a spot light).

Very happy with it so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, easy read!, 13 Nov. 2011
This latest (14th) instalment of the Nick Stone series occurs not too long after the 13th novel. Nick Stone becomes more a more rounded and emotional individual (kinda like Jason Bourne). There are obvious references from recent world disasters as well as Black Hawk Down, which is briefly mentioned!

The first half of the book sets up the story, which feels very mainstream - almost like a James Bond movie. This is not a bad thing - it's different and an easy read. The last half is where the real action starts - this is more Black Hawk Down territory... However, there doesn't seem to be a sense of suspense or urgency.

The main ending is a bit of an anticlimax, and all "loose ends" are tied up - overall, a rather laid-back and easy read...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read!, 13 Nov. 2011
This thirteenth instalment of the Nick Stone series is almost back to basics with the solid story and great action. Forgetting about how Nick gets "recruited" (very far fetched), the story motors along at a great pace.

Highly recommended!


The Bourne Supremacy (JASON BOURNE)
The Bourne Supremacy (JASON BOURNE)
by Robert Ludlum
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A confusing start but excellent read thereafter!, 8 Dec. 2009
I read this after being recommended it by my sister. The only background I knew about Bourne was through the movies. So first off, I have to say that this book is very different and more involved than the movies... The story itself is based pre-Hong Kong hand-over, and is full of (far-fetched) paranoia. Sometimes you wonder why the characters don't behave "normally"...

The first one hundred or so pages are quite tedious, but it does pick up once his wife escapes and there's less of the character's inner voice to read, which was very annoying. There are sometimes patches where Robert's writing is appalling (IMO) - there's unnecessary repetition (used to reinforce ideas), confusing dialogue (sometimes you don't know who's talking to who and what exactly they mean), and the use of Mandarin phonetically doesn't actually help the reader (I understood some of the words, but couldn't see how it actually helped tell the story...).

So apart from that and a rather disappointing ending, a good chunk (75%) of the book is a very good read - I think I'll read other books in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good headphones!, 11 Jun. 2009
These fit in the ear fine and seem to keep out the surrounding noise well. The frequency range is good, and it has good bass response.

The only downside is the long (about 2 metres!), thin cable... I've had these for over a year now, but unfortunately have recently managed to accidentally snag the cable and rip off both earpieces... =(

Apart from the cable issue, I would definitely recommend these headphones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff!, 15 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Brute Force (Hardcover)
Once again McNab has done a good job with Nick Stone's new adventure. It doesn't beat around the bush - it's an action thriller all the way. I think it's written with more of a movie style - time and places shift quite rapidly, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Admittedly, he's not as thorough with all the details as he used to be, but I guess that happens when you've written over 10+ novels! The story seems to be well researched and actually feels rather exotic - I can't help keep thinking of the new James Bond movies, where our hero has to travel to multiple locations to seek the answers...

This story is kind of a tight (rather than loose) connection was the previous books so there is a sense of a time line. McNab is up to date with current affairs and trends and has managed to incorporate them in the novel, which is quite a nice touch. As usual, Nick is one unlucky guy, because there is always some kind of conspiracy (hence this book!) and unfortunately, people he becomes acquainted with, well..., you'll understand what I mean if you've read his previous novels...

One minor criticism with this novel is that the ending was perhaps rushed and not so believable, but apart from that it's a cracking read - highly recommended!
