Day in the life of Ancient Rome, A
Day in the life of Ancient Rome, A
by Alberto Angela
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Masterpiece on Ancient Rome, 9 July 2016
I read this book in italian (I'm italian) so I can't say nothing about the english version.
Alberto Angela is a superb narrator, he can recreate Ancient Rome in your mind so vividly you will think you've actually watched a movie instead.
And I'm not joking....
I'm a true lover of Ancient Rome and this book goes at the top.

P.S.
If you can find anything else from Alberto Angela in english (books, documentaries)
be sure to have them all.
You won't be disappointed!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greay Western, Great Horror, Colossal Acting, 22 Jun. 2016
This review is from: Bone Tomahawk [DVD] [2016] (DVD)
The Best movie to come out from 2015.
The acting alone is stunning.
Kurt Russell at his best,
Matthew Fox and Patrick Wilson are surprisingly belieavable and I'm sure you will end loving their characters,
But, believe me, Richard Jenkins deserved an Oscar for his unapproachable performance.
The movie itself is tense, dramatic, graphically superb.

Hats off to this masterpiece.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware Of The FAKE!, 25 Mar. 2016
This review is from: Greatest Hell's Hits (Audio CD)
Just want to help you save money:
AC/DC never/ever dut a Greatest Hits on the market.
They would never permit it because they simply don't believe in it.

As Malcolm Young would put it, if you look for a Best Of from AC/DC you just have to buy
either
Bon Scott's "Highway To Hell" or "Let There Be Rock" or "High Voltage (International Version)"
or
Brian Johnson's "Back In Black" or "Stiff Upper Lip"


Feathered Dinosaurs: The Origin of Birds
Feathered Dinosaurs: The Origin of Birds
by John A. Long
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £18.39

5.0 out of 5 stars a magnificent book... of Art, 24 July 2012
looking at the cover you'll immediately notice that this is not a technical science book.
I don't understand why some readers have dumped it for that.
technical books with pictures of fossils are already enough.
(personally I have a dozen).
This time I was looking for something more vivid.

dinosaurs are not fiction, they had a shape and color.
not always our imagination is enough,
and these magnificent works manage to bring them back to life as if they are real.

This is not a technical book, yes,
but this is a must have for anyone (adults and children) fascinated by how the dinosaurs would have been.


Last Action Hero [DVD] [1993]
Last Action Hero [DVD] [1993]
Dvd ~ Arnold Schwarzenegger
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £3.52

5.0 out of 5 stars To Buy or Not To Buy?, 16 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First: I'm really surprised to know how many people relays on "rotten tomatoes" reviews...
I think the average voter could be a frustrated housewife or a pink dressed man...
no one seems to know nothing about action movies!
do not trust them!

Second: this film is brilliant!!
this is one of Arnie's best, maybe my all time fave!!!
I mean... leather jacket, blue jeans, boots and cigar,
what else could you need from the coolest man on earth?!?

this film is plenty of action, but surprisingly is totally funny,
on several occasions I laughed uproariously,
I thought to be a child!

If you want a great Schwarzenegger, or if you're simply looking for a good old fashioned action movie THIS IS THE ONE.
(the "Hamlet scene" is worth more than any other action films of the last 15 years)

To Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book about Native Americans, 4 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first I wanted to buying Dee Brown's The American West,
I thought was more detailed and wider than Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.
However, finally I decided to buy this, principally for the enthusiastic response of the readers and the beautiful cover picture.

Well, this is one of the best books I ever read.

the author depicted The Native Indians as never before,
they seems to be very powerful and charismatic,
for example Sitting Bull seems to be a kind of demigod: strong, imperial, proud, totally resolute.

my admiration for this ancient culture has grown enormously,
I thought that I would be sad and disappointed at the end of reading.
Instead I have learned a great lesson in life.
there's a phrase that will remain forever in my mind
uttered by an indian chief after realizing he had lost everything:
"I was going to start crying when I remembered that I am a man".

buy this book and love it.
