5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT !!, 5 May 2012

This review is from: The Normans [DVD] (DVD)
What makes a good series ? An historical one at that ..Well when first seen on TV , i was captured by the Music , intrigued by the presentation , and more so and im not sure if everyone would agree "THE MIRACLE" that a band of raiding Vikings , could set almost like the Romans did before "The Way " for a more integrating Europe..Yes the bloody battles / and CHANGE over time ...To more culture .religion ,Arts and from the British view point a Government system that once conquered had no equal ,and a power base for the NOW "Normans"..To just about do what they liked throughout the known world..What intrigued me most was the way at the same time William was conquering England , The Normans were also making headway across Europe ..I never really took notice before ,at how this was done , and at what time in History it was done..As alot of us in Britain would agree , we only hear the English side of the Story about Britain ..This series for me demonstrates a modern Army of its time with no equal who seized power,land ,wealth ,titles , almost in desperation !! , if not by WILL alone , when perhaps it was needed then ..Timeing for this ""band of Brothers"" was paramount ..As this series demonstrates so well ..

A must see film ,certainly worthy of any collection , great cast !!! , Once again we see alittle bit of history told well , and a start of a revolution to end the slave trade ..We see the mear glimse of hope shattered on many occasions , but the do or die methods whatever the cost to go about these unlawfull {which were law} acts against humanity ...Well written and very well executed and a feeling of being there , due to the high levels of accuracy ,the plot, and the scenery and the costumes...recomended...

5.0 out of 5 stars I was amazed the first time around, 23 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first saw the first episode back in 1993 ..The first person being ALexander ..I'd heard things in the back of my mind about ALexander but really not much at all ..Anyway although alittle dated now , This whole set is still brilliant !!! ..It makes you think really how Man has sculpted his Map ..Left his Mark , and pretty much in many cases changed the world we live in altogether.Without the art of war , our history however biased towards the "winners" so to speak , would simply not exist much , as war is one of the oldest methods of history and text we have about the past..
Anyway although im spiritual , the need to know why ? we have ended up the way we are today boils back through the eons of history/religious doctrine ete , and is lets say important in the sence of KNOWLEDGE which without , Further "balance" to the future of our survival would be flawed if not near impossible ..Alexander taught us Divine courage , Napolean gave us a web-map in which we could never get out of , Nelson taught us never to give in , Ceasor the political tools ,Grant stayability against all odds , But all and more taught us , how to be original ..Great series ENJOY !!

4.0 out of 5 stars I WAS BROUGHT UP WITH YOU, 24 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Director's Cut (Audio CD)
I was born into the Parks of London and at the time of Lionheart i was in Kensington Gardens , i remember Peter Pan , and heard the young Kate bush Mention it on this album ...A little later i moved into Surrey..I met a freind who knew Kate Bush like a sister ,this was the time of the Babooshka album and tour of 1980 ..My Friend had been recovering in Hospital during an operation ,when the shutters were put around his bed..Kate Bush came in Fresh from tour and greated him , putting get well cards ,promo tour stuff , back stage passes ,photographs about his bed ..Like i say he knew her like a sister..During Kate bushes Hounds of love album me and my freind were bizzy looking at cameras in Guildford ..We remember ""Running up that hill " and talked about the album to death ..The Kiss on the bow from the single was a pagan thing ,a fertility rite or something we'd recall back then.. Moveing on abit and to Devon ..My friend went to America by this time.."""The Sensual world """ ALBUM had just come out ..I was studying abit ..Alittle about Vivien Leigh and watched "Gone with the wind" on video at the time ...But the title track "The sensual world " ..BUGGED ME !!! was this TARA ? Was this "Gone with the wind ?" HMMMMMM YESSSS lol ...Now the best bit {ish} ..Ive been along time study of spiritual awareness , and afew years ago got hooked on "Joan of Arc".. Oh and guess what ..Kate bush comes out of hiding and releases "ARIEL" ..I Started playing the album ..first in the background ,as i was reading more Joan of Arc stuff..But one song bugged me "JOANNI" ..What the £$%^ is going on Kate ? Are you stalking my mind lol..No seriously everything was brilliant ...But changing the subjest this revamp i might grow into ..It takes time sometimes with Kates stuff to love it.It took along time to love AREIL but now its rates one of my all time albums by anyone .What we dont see with KATE right away , is the whole picture..Her albums , well especally the later ones ,take time to nourish and enjoy..Kate had already had the vision that she wanted with this new album ..But that will in time GROW on us , like AREIL did for me ..So be patient with this album ..Put it on as back ground music whilst doing the washing up or the chores , you might get to like it in the end ...

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love this type of film go see it .BECAUSE YOUR WORTH IT !!, 2 Feb. 2010

This review is from: Avatar [DVD] (DVD)
There are alot of negative people out here who put the film down ,maybe they watch to many movies and get lost in the sadness of having only one pleasure or hobby....
WE KNOW ITS PLOT HAS BEEN DONE BEFORE ...!!! , WE KNOW IT MAY HAVE SIMULAR SCENES TO OTHER FILMS , ETE..BUT !!! it is still a delight to see...If you dont like 3D then DONT go see it , just dont expect to write a review just because you dont like 3D ...Thats not an excuse to write a film off ...Now taken 2 billion at the cinema , tut tut , See your review meant NOTHING !!! ..

If you dont like SCI FI dont see this movie or write a review , Thats not a reason again to write a film off ..Or if you dont like Cameron , or any of his films ..WELL REALLY THERES NO EXCUSE OR MEANINGFULL REASON TO WRITE A REVIEW ..

Write .. as though you just come from a cinema flick during the silent movie ere , and see how greatness has improved ..AWSOME MOVIE ..Cannot wait for 2 and 3 ..AVATAR ...FOREVER ...

I first watched Random Harvest on tv back in the 80's ..It was one of those films that had everything..I could beleive now it had won Oscars ..But i didnt know it at the time when i first saw it ..Its a feel good film for all ages really , with a very good plot , that which afew films today seem to loose through to much special effects ..Though hmm AVATAR was real good i saw that movie twice ..!!!! ...anyway back to the film ...
Should i really have to tell you about it ? in order for you to watch it ? Hmm ...I really would not like to spoil it for you , but if you have afew notes spare , and your tirred of all the modern block buster movies , RELAX to a time ,when the world was abit more specail and simple characters could bring out the best of emotions ..and pleasure ..And ......................Sorry i seem to have lost my memory ...Hmm must be Random Harvest ...After all your memory is the priceless apitizer , which is also relevent to the whole story ...Have i lost the plot ?

Go watch it if you can ...Just remember if you dont by it now ..You might forget the tital of this movie..EXELLENT !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars aS GOOD AS IT GETS !!!, 2 Jan. 2010
I am currently still in he process of reading this book ..But as i wrote the first review of the BBC drama i must and have to make a comment , as i am studying parts of law , from Achives from a relative slightly earlyer then the remarkable Sir William Garrow ....As i was pointing to another less credited person a Great grandfather Sir Nathan Wrighte , Lord Keeper of the Great Seal 1700 ...Who in his time was the most Honest Gentleman to take court , and was distinquished only by the King and Queen of the time ...Garrow was a reformist and a great speaker , and i wonder if Echos of Nathen Wrighte stimulated his mind set ...And paved the way to ultimet reform of the whole justice system , something i wonder if ..My great Grandfather had they let honesty reign would have done so some hundred years before ...REMARKABLE ...A MUST BUY BOOK ..AND ECHOS of the historic past i am studying ...Ill leave the study review of educated remarks to a better informed person and a study of law ..My review is credited to the honesty of a system which even the the 18th century was well overdue ..................

5.0 out of 5 stars The message within a message, 30 Nov. 2009
As along time studyer of these books way back in 1999 , I often meet people who have read these books , some undersatnd them ..Others have failed the first pages ...Some think them satanic amongst religious sects ..or other types of groups ete ,... Then this is a spiritual awakening ..Not a backward medievil chasity belt ..
Is it any wonder ...I ask myself ...That what you will remember from these books , you will only come to know from years of spiritual awareness ...
These books are three dimentional to the individual ...Because at a certain level of experiance ..Just one simple fact will explain a diffrent meaning in any given new moment in time ..I.e what you first thought or experainced in life or from this thinking ..WILL change to give another more meaningfull answer as you go about your spiritual journey .

These are the doors of all learning ..And i have understood everything these books have had to offer , well thats because of nearly 30 years of spiritual awareness / practise ..

What is so extraordinary is book three ..That which ive always known , and like a beakon understood something about myself ..It was the other peoples on other planets looking in ...ready to help ..if we could rid our selves of this thing we call materializm ..Which is so Alien to the universe ..No animal nore plant would ever understand this madness ..But the world is so detached from reality ...And these books bring us back LOVE to ourselves ..Away from synfectic delotions ..Because we are so sadly away from ourselves , we are forgeting who we are ..We have lost the spiritual plot that which Jesus so wanted us to KEEP ...

READ with joy .openness and love and look out for the film of the books also avalible on here ..What i have said is not nessassy within these books ..The books are a complex Labyringh of joy on many levels , HENSE you must read them daily to understand perhaps ....................A little mission ...You know the one ..the one you said you were born to do ...........................NOW THE TIME IS RIGHT ...LIVE THE DREAM ..XX

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just watched the first episode of this new series , As a period drama based on fact from Archives of the period .This is is a remarkable series ..Its costume and attension to detail of the period is sceond to none ..The writing is extraordinary ..And gives the whole period of this time from detail the appauling miscarriges of justice to innocent victims ,and the need from change ..Since this was just the first episode , i cannot coment on the rest of the series ..But i must say a welcome and Brilliant start an otherwise exellent Landmark series
