4.0 out of 5 stars PLAYING FAST AND LOOSE WITH HISTORY!, 9 Mar 2010
WHILST THE PLOT OF THE FILM WAS TOTALLY INACCURATE FROM AN HISTORICAL VIEWPOINT,FOR INSTANCE ELIZABETH AND MARY NEVER MET,THE PLAYING OF GLENDA JACKSON AND VANESSA REDGRAVE WAS SUPERB WITH A GOOD SUPPORTING CAST WHICH DREW YOU IN AND AT LEAST AT THE TIME MADE YOU FORGET THE HOLES IN THE PLOT.....THE SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF!

5.0 out of 5 stars ACER ASPIRE ONE, 1 Jan 2010
I HAVE A DELL DESKTOP AND A TOSHIBA LAPTOP BUT HAVING RESEARCHED THE NETBOOKS AVAILABLE AT A REASONABLE PRICE I CONSULTED A FRIEND WHO IS A COMPUTER PROGRAMME DESIGNER.
HE AGREED WITH MY ANALYSIS AND AS LONG AS YOU WANT A SIMPLE NETBOOK,EASY TO USE THEN THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU.

5.0 out of 5 stars NETBOOK CARRY BAG, 1 Jan 2010
A well made,light weight carry bag........just what is required when travelling with a netbook.
Will not worry you about your weight allowance when flying and sturdy enough to protect your netbook against any possible hazards.

5.0 out of 5 stars RICHARD WAGNER AND HIS LEGACY, 16 July 2009
This review is from: The Wagner Clan (Paperback)
FROM THE START OF THE FAMILY AND WAGNER'S RELATIONSHIP WITH LISZT AND HIS MEETING WITH COSIMA THE BOOK BRINGS YOU RIGHT UP TO DATE WITH HIS FAMILY FEUDS AND HOW THE CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN FOUGHT FOR CONTROL OF THE BAYREUTH FESTIVAL AND IN MORE REGENT TIMES THEIR CLOSE ASSOCIATION WITH HITLER AND THE NAZI PARTY.
A FAIRLY "HEAVY" READ BUT WELL WORTH THE EFFORT FOR WAGNERIANS AND NONE WAGNERIANS ALIKE.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE WAGNER FAMILY AND BAYREUTH, 16 July 2009
THIS IS A FASCINATING BIOGRAPHY OF THE ENGLISH ORPHAN WHO MARRIED INTO THE WAGNER FAMILY,VIRTUALLY TOOK OVER THE FESTIVAL AND WAS A GREAT FRIEND OF HITLER AND SENIOR NAZI OFFICIALS.
EVEN AFTER THE WAR UNTIL THE TIME OF HER DEATH SHE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HER ADMIRATION FOR DEAR ADOLPH!

5.0 out of 5 stars JEAN COCTEAU, 13 April 2009
This review is from: La Belle et la bete [DVD] (DVD)
JEAN COCTEAU MADE AN OUSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO CINEMA AND JEAN MARAIS RESPONDED AS AN ACTOR....PERHAPS NOT SURPRISING AS THEY WERE LOVERS FOR A TIME!
I WOULD ENCOURAGE ANY LOVER OF CINEMA TO WATCH COCTEAU'S FILMS AND SOME OF HIS ART WORK.
FOR FILMS "ORPHEE",IN MY OPINION IS PROBABLY THE BEST.

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL WARNING, 13 April 2009
A WELL MADE AND CHILLING REMINDER OF THE HORRORS OF WW2.
BUT AS BOB DYLAN SANG "WHEN WILL THEY EVER LEARN".
GENOCIDE GOES ON AND WE "CIVILISED" PEOPLE MOSTLY SIT ON OUR HANDS!
SHAME ON US.
