5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Wait!, 1 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can only concur fully with the other five-star review comments. I saw the original "Making of" documentary about 12 years ago and was fascinated at the time but did not follow through with a purchase. Since then I have become intimate with all the works of Woody Guthrie and to hear his songs interpreted by such a collection of talented artists is an eye-opening experience. I bought the album about a month ago and am still listening to it daily!

1.0 out of 5 stars Anyone want to buy a hardly used copy of Girl on Fire?, 15 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Girl On Fire (Audio CD)
After having been impressed with all her work to date I could not believe the blandness of this. Almost every track is overproduced with the backing music totally synthesised. And WHAT is going on with the artwork?? I unfortunately bought tickets for her tour next summer before buying the album. Maybe I can get rid of them as well as the album?

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Algorithm gone horribly wrong, 8 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Immigrant (Kindle Edition)
I bought this following an Amazon recommendation... Based upon your purchases you may consider....
Normally their algorithm works really well and I am rarely disappointed by such recommendations. I am a great fan of contemporary Indian writers (Aravind Adiga, Vikram Chandra, Vikas Swarup etc) who produce really original work but this book is an insignificant everyday tale of a couple's relationship in difficulties. One can change the location and culture but are there not such difficulties in all relationships? I found absolutely nothing of interest in this book - the only positive quality I can recommend is that it is a very easy read. ie Do not read if you want to be challenged at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Real lives, Real People, 4 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7-49 Up [DVD] (DVD)
I have followed the series over the years being a 1956er myself but to see them all together, back to back, was a very different experience. We had to sit and watch them all and at the end found ourselves frustratedly awaiting the continuation - which luckily arrived on TV just a month later! Now there is a 7 year hiatus until we can pick it up again. Will I still be around? Will they still be around?

This is a lovely film, both hilarious and moving. I was totally sucked into this film and transported to the wilds of northern Finland. A must for anyone interested in world cinema

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant, 12 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So many reasons to award this 5 stars;
Fritz Lang was so far ahead of his time.
Hats off to the techies who remastered this one.
I could not get enough of the lingering close ups of the principal actors
Fascinating plot, an inspiration for future Bonds no doubt
and quite erotic as well!

1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment!, 12 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Detour [1945] [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this based upon the high average rating given by fellow reviewers - my mistake, even at this price. The sound and picture quality rendered the film barely watchable and the acting was atrocious. There are probably thousands of better B noir movies than this one

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Excellent!, 13 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Nasty Girl [DVD] [1991] (DVD)
This theme will take another gereration or two before it works its way out of the German psyche. This film represents profound issues but very cleverly in a less than serious manner. Lena Stolze is marvellous, playing the role with conviction from the age of a young teenager through to embattled mother (she was 33 when the film came out). Bit disappointed with the picture quality and format though. In the Verhoeven interview, there are clips in HD quality in full screen. Pity they could not have remastered the whole film.
