5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 14 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Unit Pride (Paperback)
Set in the Korean war, this is overshadowed by the plethora of Vietnam war books.It shouldn't be, as this is quite simply one of the best war books ever written. I first read it back in '83, and twice since. It's both hilarious and tragic. It's also based on fact. An unforgettable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding., 22 Dec. 2008
This review is from: 36 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
I watched this the other evening, and actually paused it half way so that i could look on Amazon,and buy the soundtrack(which i found).
Quite simply, this is one of the best foreign-language films that i have ever seen. Breathtakingly made, with a great soundtrack.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 2 Sept. 2008
I really expected a lot from this book, but Mark Barrowcliffe comes across as extremely smug, and without many redeeming features. Given the subject material, this should have been a 'laugh out loud' page-turner. It isn't. To be fair though, there are a few amusing anecdotes.
Don't bother with this...read something by Matt Dunn instead. Or Colin Butts.

Roy Scheider: A Film Biography
by Diane C. Kachmar
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A great loss., 2 Sept. 2008
Roy Scheider sadly passed away this year, and this is a fitting homage to a greatly underrated actor.
Most people will always remember him as 'Chief Brody' in 'Jaws', but his filmography is pretty vast, and this book chronicles nearly all of them.
Not a cheap book, but an excellent read. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of The New Centurions, 18 Jan. 2004
This review is from: The New Centurions (Paperback)
This must rank as Wambaugh's finest work of fiction.It is a much more serious book than The Choirboys;looking at the lives of three police academy graduates as they progress through their careers.The book is extremely sad in parts as it accurately portrays the pressure that police work puts on both professional and personal relationships.I've read it three times and still never tire of it..It's a really great book.
