2.0 out of 5 stars Sadly due to the black painting and smooth skin, ..., 25 Feb. 2017
Sadly due to the black painting and smooth skin, accurate and in line with its appearance in Halo 5, it lacks any kind of detail. I was dissatisfied with his but I can't fault Dak Horse as the ship doesn't lend itself to being made into a model.
Unlike other Halo Dark Horse ships the Prowler lacks character, detail and presence. I'd forgo buying this and invest in one of the many other products they offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 16 Oct. 2016
Review of this live recording but viewed in the Cinema.
Simply superb.
I'm just home from seeing this in the cinema and I'm still stunned by its majesty.
The music, the sets, the actors are of the highest possible standard.
The camera positioning and video editing captures the play perfectly and you'll feel part of the audience.
The story itself is heartbreaking and inspirational and I was moved to tears on a few occasions,Why God Why blew me away and I felt shivers down my spine.
The actors inhabit their characters and bring them to life in such a way you'll feel their joy and pain in equal measure.
If you like live theatre but can't afford or don't live near London then this is the next best thing.

The 25th anniversary event at the end adds to the sense of the occasion and raised a lot of laughs.
Jonathan Pryce was particularly well received.

Get this and you'll love it.

A delicious beverage.
I sampled this at the Whisky Stramash in Edinburgh in 2015 and this was the standout drink of the event.
I immediately purchased a bottle and it was an instant hit with my friends.
Try mixing with a slice of strawberry, a slice of lime ice and cold ginger ale. This was how the gentleman at the Stramash mixed it and it was sublime.
It's a smooth and refreshing drink with a very pleasing taste that lingers on the tongue.
The taste of strawberry is strong but not overpowering you couldn't mistake this for a fruit drink.

I had it during the summer as it goes down well in the sunshine but I'm confident that it's just as splendid in any season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tribute to Brotherhood., 9 Jun. 2015
This review is from: Kajaki [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I served for eighteen years as an infantry soldier, including two tours in Afghanistan, and this film took me right back there. I didn't know Mark but worked alongside those who did and this masterpiece captures that horrible day with uncompromising accuracy. These tragic events entered British army legend not for what went wrong but for the indomitable spirit of those there that day.
Every story I heard from those who were there match up with every thing on screen. Cinema veritas indeed.
Opening in an unusual way it captures the boredom of an operational tour and other than classic army banter nothing of note happens which only serves to make the main events even more terrifying.
This isn't violent action its naked fear and unbelievable courage. This movie could never have originated in the mind of a screenwriter so fantastic were the feats of bravery and tragedy you'll witness that only the horror of war could have given birth to them. Such is the tension that you will not notice how minimalist the direction and soundtrack are. This is a director letting his camera and his actors tell the story without restriction or flair.
Thank you for this film.

I have friends in the Mark Wright centre in Edinburgh, I've been to the Mark Wright project in Dalkeith, set up by his parents to help veterans in his memory. The tributes to him seem endless but they scarcely do him justice.
I've left the Army now and every day I go to work I pass the Minto Hotel, I'll think of him every day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad sizing., 14 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite being 2XL this jacket was unwearable. It is of excellent quality and very stylish but the sizing is terrible. I'd say it was more like a UK medium than anything else.
if you're over 5'11 then this is not the jacket for you as 2XL is the largest you'll get.
