5.0 out of 5 stars Screenplay writing at its absolute best., 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful, exciting and fascinating. Just like watching the memorizing trilogy that is Christopher Nolan's Batman. Especially useful as an inspiration and as an education for beginner screenplay writers.


Writing Screenplays That Sell
Writing Screenplays That Sell
by Michael Hauge
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly written and beautifully structured., 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hauge manages to excellently transfer his knowledge onto the reader. The layout is so well structure which makes it enjoyable to follow let alone read. The examples used in the book make it easy to contextualize all the concepts and ideas, and once he has been through the story concept, character development, structure and scene writing with you, Hauge, brilliantly, will then examine and analyse the most commercially successful film of all time in order to show you how all these concepts of screenwriting are put in to use and prove to you that yes, they do actually work. It is the only book you would need to learn to write screenplays effectively. A must-have for any screenplay writer, especially a beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read!, 10 July 2013
I have to admit I started reading this book already 100% convinced in evolution and understanding that it is a fact. However, this book not only reinforced my understanding but also taught me so much more about what it is that proves evolution and makes it so amazing. From explaining how we date things to how implausible the idea of intelligent design is, this book covers a vast quantity of knowledge which is extremely well explained. One of Dawkins' best.

You will come away from this book much more informed and much more able to debate with creationists and other 'non-evolutionists' and maybe win them round (depending on their stubbornness).

A must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, one of the best films i've seen in ages., 16 Jan 2013
This review is from: Lawless [DVD] (DVD)
The people who give this film bad reviews because of it's 'lack of action' are missing the point. The film has a lot of action and is very brutal and very real with most action scenes not for the faint hearted. The point of the film isn't to have constant 'hollywood style' action, the point is to show people the incredible true story of three brothers who are bootleggers and the amazing journey they go through. The cast are brilliant and you can't help but love Forrest - Probably Tom Hardy's best performance (with the possible exception of Bane in Batman). Guy Pearce is also brilliant and he portrays his character perfectly. The story is excellent and the film is a must see along with the book being a must-read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not terrible but not exactly American Idiot., 27 Nov 2012
This review is from: ĦUNO! [Explicit] (MP3 Download)
I wasn't exactly expecting a masterpiece, as the album was recored very quickly, but UNO is worse than I expected. The album is about a 50/50 split of good and bad music. Songs like 'Nuclear Family' and ' 'Stay The Night' are overall good tunes (however the lyrics are not to Billie Joe's usual high standard) and there's a slightly different catchy number called 'Troublemaker' which is also good but a song like 'Kill The DJ' is unnecessarily repetitive and the lyrics must have taken about 10 minutes to write. Another thing that annoys me is Green Day's sudden desire to 'sellout' in ways such as appearing in Twilight and having nude models in the 'Oh Love' video. It's all just designed to create unnecessary hype about their albums. It is unnecessary because they are one of the biggest bands in the world so purely an amazing record and standard plugging of the album would have been enough to sell millions. So to sum up, the album is worth getting but don't expect anything nearly as good as American Idiot.


Classic Dog Toy Newspaper Squeaky
Classic Dog Toy Newspaper Squeaky
Offered by Mighty Oak Trading
Price: £3.97

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay but not great., 8 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The squeak seemed to be very stimulating for my dog however the toy is not tough enough for a dog to have as a lasting toy, it only took him less 20 minutes to completely destroy the toy. Furthermore the toy is much smaller than I thought it was going to be and it was quite disappointing when I received it.

5.0 out of 5 stars !!!ABSOLOUTLEY FANTASTIC!!!, 26 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The laptop is fabulous, it's in-built webcam is amazing and it has an amazing graphics card and 3 gb RAM which is brilliant. It's easy to use very very nice and smart and all the games I have played on it have worked perfectley. There is one thing though (it isn't major), it says that it comes with 160 GB of hardrive but mine only came with 138 GB but that isn't problem.
Info: Doesn't come with in-car charger. If you are looking to buy an in-car charger it is 18.5V, 3.5A and 65W.

Conclusion: This laptop is excellent value for money and is absoloutley brilliant, so I think you should buy it. Also the laptop is good for gaming so if anyone likes playing PC games then this is great value.
