Gravity [Blu-ray + UV Copy] [2013] [Region Free] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ George Clooney

Why is it that producers spend millions making a film look good (and 'Gravity' does), without taking care of the thing which matters the most and actually costs the least - the script? I've admired many of Alfonso Cuaron's films - particularly the excellent 'Children of Men' and 'Y Tua Mama Tambien' - but this is just American cliche-laden nonsense. If this is what it takes to make lots of money - to sell your artistic integrity to the the Hollywood machine - then shame on you Senor Cuaron.
Veedon Fleece ~ Van Morrison

A wonderful acoustic, pastoral album, and for me greater than Astral Weeks or Moondance. A perfect accompaniment to a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Fragile Empire: How Russia Fell in and Out of Love&hellip by Ben Judah

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb analysis, 8 Mar 2014
The new Russian middle class has woken up, along with many in small towns and villages outside of Moscow, to the lie that is Putin's 'stability'. Rabid state corruption, broken public services and a 'dictatorship of law' that is rotten to the core. Brilliantly researched and masterfully assembled, this analysis of all that is wrong with Putin and 'his' Russia is compelling, thought-provoking and superbly entertaining. Judah keeps the writing flowing at a cracking pace, that by the end you wish he wouldn't stop.
