5.0 out of 5 stars A real chiller!, 25 Jan 2008
I can't remember the last film that actually gave me a chill down the spine. This one certainly did! Having read other reviews, I can't understand why some people want explanations to every happening in the film. You don't need to know! As the viewer you find yourself as dumbfounded as Richard Gere's character - John Klein, the reporter who from the the start hasn't got a clue why he is in Point Pleasant and how it has been physically possible to have got there. As the plot unfolds it gets more and more frightening as it seems that something pretty disastrous is going to happen there and it could be that John Klein is going to die.

1.0 out of 5 stars A space Oddity, 23 Jan 2008
I can't express how disappointed I am with this much respected and written about science fiction movie. I never saw the film when it was released and have never seen it advertised for showing on any of the tv channels since. So, I was looking forward to something rather special when I purchased a copy recently.
I can't honestly say that I am a sci-fi buff but I have always been interested in a good story and man's advancement in space. My number 1 'encounter' film which 2001 A Space Oddysey can be classified as, will always be Spielberg's 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' (1977).

Jenkins: The Armed Man - A Mass For Peace ~ Karl Jenkins

On hearing the beautiful and peaceful Benedictus on the radio I had to find a recording on CD for a more intimate listening. I was not disappointed by the emotional and thought provoking mass for peace - 'The Armed Man'. An incredible recipe of ancient and modern styles of music, composed skilfully by Karl Jenkins. And what a variety of texture from the Moslem Call to Prayers, to the stirring Sanctus; from the peaceful opening strings of Benedictus to the dramatic film-like sounds of Hymn Before Action. We are reminded of the futility of war during the playing of the Last Post in Charge! This is a powerful CD, and must be added to your collection.
