American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Let&hellip by Chris Kyle

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read., 23 Mar 2014
I liked this book written by former US Navy Seal Chris Kyle.
I also liked his descriptions of his training to become one of the Seals too,and his battle experiences in Iraq.
There are also many helpful contributions from his wife,and it's a very good read.
The only thing that gave me,a raised and bemused eyebrow,was Chris saying about us native Brits,to quote:'They speak English kinda funny.'
I bet your Texan accent speaking English sounds funny too!
However,one of my favourite books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable., 14 Dec 2013
I enjoyed this updated version of the Superman character.It still didn't beat the original 1978 version,but I found it very enjoyable.
I liked Henry Cavill's performance as Superman,and also Russell Crowe's role as Jor-El.I also liked Michael Shannon's bad guy as General Zod,but was faintly amused to read Michael trying to defend his character,saying he wasn't really a bad guy.Yeah,right.
Anyway,this offering was a good action film,but it was nowhere near the 1978 film.
However,it still gets a big thumbs up from me,and I'll look forward to the next offering.
Again;very enjoyable.

Having always been a huge fan of Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin,this film is definitely one of my favourites.
It intrigued me to see it was based on a true story.Having read what actually happened though,I felt very disappointed with the sad,tragic outcome.
Anyway,I enjoyed the film very much,seeing loner trapper:Albert Johnson (Charles Bronson) on the run,from honest Mountie Edgar Millen(played by Lee Marvin)who has the misfortune of leading a band of murderous thugs against Johnson,set in the remote,frozen Canadian territories.Basically,the thugs just want to kill Johnson for the hell of it,having persuaded Millen that Johnson did wrong against them.It's a decision all the thugs… Read more
