In My Own Words:
I try to give honest and upfront in depth reviews to help buyers make informed choices. I specialise in photography equipment & technology reviews, but also review other items. If I am sent a product to review, I always state this clearly.

Photo & Computer enthusiast, technology fan. Gadget lover through and through. Non fiction book fan (history and factual) though I do read some fiction from time to time.

aLLreli USB 3.0 Flash Drive Memory Stick SuperSpee&hellip by aLLreli
Note the maker sent me a review sample, no attempt was made to influence my opinion of the product

The book opens with an impressive double page spread of "Glendasan River", moving… Read more

This re-tread of the original film (released back in 1962 with Robert Mitchum as the lead role) get the De Niro and Scorsese treatment and mostly comes out feeling quite fresh and a cut above good. Somewhat overshadowed by "Silence of the Lambs" among film critics, still it provides quite a different feel to that film and still ranks as one of the stronger films in the psychological thriller genre.

De Niro plays Max Cady a recently released from prison serving 14 years for rape and battery, he's hell bent on getting revenge on this former lawyer Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte), who suppressed evidence that might have given Max a different trial outcome. The story is quite straight… Read more
