Amsterdam (City-Pick Series)
Amsterdam (City-Pick Series)
by Heather Reyes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars The writing is quite mixed in quality; several authors ..., 26 Mar. 2016
The writing is quite mixed in quality; several authors seem to have considerably more interest in themselves than Amsterdam. There are some quite big gaps, such as most of the 18th and 19th centuries, or anything to do with sport; how you can publish a book about Amsterdam without mentioning football? Also, how did Amsterdam become a leading maritime, financial, trading, publishing, science, instrument making and intellectual centre? Where did all that go? But the book does have the inevitable and predictable obsession with the Nazis.

And Einstein saw the numbers
Zeppelin saw the Zeppelin
And Johan saw the ball.

This review is from: The Weather Man [DVD] (DVD)
Not funny but sad. Caine and Cage fine actors but poorly matched and unconvincing as father and son. Compulsory advertising for naff films and junk food irritating. Script and cast looked set for sunshine, but it turned out cold and wet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great watch, but avoid., 21 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent watch, I liked it so much I bought another one when the strap broke and the first watch was lost whilst walking through a field. Which is The Problem; the strap attaches to the watch with a tiny thin frail spring pin; inevitably this linkage fails. That the second has also now failed, whilst I was making a cheese sandwich, demonstrates that the problem is not a one-off. My nearest watch shop is unable to source a replacement pin.
Which is a shame, because the watch looks good, is easy to read, keeps perfect time, never ever needs winding or a battery change and makes no irritating noises in the dead of night. Apart from the strap. it is perfect and excellent value.
If anyone from pulsar is reading this, Please, how do I get a replacement pin fitted?

3.0 out of 5 stars tosh., 5 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cold Mountain [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Nicole Kidman gives an immaculate performance as a Hollywood Actress; perfect hair, perfect skin, perfect makeup, immaculate costume, intensely self-reverential. Quite what a Hollywood Actress was doing in rural Nowheresville during the American Civil War, and how she travelled back from the 21st to the 19th century, is never explained; perhaps the scene where her father is shown to be a Time Travelling Scientific Genius, only masquerading as a priest, was somehow lost during editing?
Beautifully filmed manipulative tosh.

This review is from: Monsters [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
Amiable low-budget romantic road movie with a wander-on part for oversized aliens; the antidote to vacuous and implausibly expensive block-buster cgi smash-and-slaughter fests. The storyline is probably best not examined too closely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cycling buy this winter, 1 Mar. 2015

Marvellous on icy tarmac; cycled home through a city gridlocked by iced-up roads, whilst drivers took hours to travel a few miles. Not too tight on the rims, tension just right. A significant increase in effort required however riding compared to knobbly tires without the spikes.

It works, and is an improvement on the previous model, but still requires considerable concentration to solve the mystery of the programming instructions. Timeguard customer service however very helpful when contacted for advice.

If you like listening to Leonard Cohen and remember the 1970s with affection, then you should enjoy this film.
If you don't, then you won't.
