5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Wolfs categorised assessment below:, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casino Royale [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Plot: 4stars. It’s a Bond movie so has to meet certain plot criteria, but otherwise not bad with a few nice twists and character building scenes.
Directing: 4 stars. Actually very good and would be 5stars, but it’s too easy to look good when you have a ridiculous budget.
Acting: 5stars. Superb, Craig and Eva are flawless together.
Special Effects: 5stars. Faultless.
Accuracy (historical, physical laws, continuity mistakes etc. excepting were plot allows): 3stars. Many errors but in most cases these were simply to artistically improve an effect or scene. Though one item just really bugged me - why Bond, with all his training and abilities, can’t do CPR or use a defibulator to save his life.
Action: 5stars. Some truly excellent melee’s, close and gritty as real fights are.
Other: Like previous Bond movies but x10. Eva can be very distracting; some parts might need replaying as a consequence.

This review is from: Solomon Kane [DVD] (DVD)
Plot: 3stars. A tad predictable.
Directing: 4stars. Some nice use of camera angles and scene set ups.
Acting: 4stars. Most actors weren’t too bad at all.
Special Effects. 3stars. Not all were brilliant, fortunately the film makes good use of more classic methods such as prosthetics.
Accuracy (historical, physical laws, continuity mistakes etc. excepting were plot allows): 3stars. Various but minor errors.
Action: 4 stars. Some not bad sword play.
Other:

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue Wolf's categorised assessment below:, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Plot: 4 stars. Intriguing, though the very ending was atrocious.
Directing: 5stars. Actually a very talented director, a shame he didn't have more budget to work with.
Acting: 3stars. Some actors weren't bad at all but others let the team down.
Special Effects: 1 star. Low budget but few and far between so don't detract from the film too much.
Accuracy (historical, physical laws, continuity mistakes etc. excepting were plot allows): 4stars. Not perfect but someone did some homework.
Action: 3stars. Some OK fights if one considers the lack of effects used to improve them.
Other: Translations from original Polish are not literal but capture intent well. Synopsis, title and cover art are misleading - the Vikings are barely involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable and accurate, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The polymer used is tough and hard-wearing making this a durable model that would likely take a lot of punishment. The cast is also, impressively, anatomically correct with modern paleontological thinking. I would highly recommend this item to kids of all ages, even those over 18yrs.


The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition
The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and evocative., 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author takes the reader on an evocative journey through Greek myths and mythology in 171 short logically ordered chapters.

The book would be better titled “Greek Myths and Mythology”, for detailed explanations and potential historic origins are provided for each paragraph of actual story. Comparisons are also made between differing versions of the same myth. The author provides a captivating insight into ancient history and the human phykey.

The book is not intended as an introduction into the subject but is a fascinating read for those with a basic knowledge seeking greater detail and depth. The book is also well suited to those seeking a definitive reference, for not one myth appears to have been missed and every paragraph of story is referenced to its original source.

But be warned; the authors use of English is complex and articulated, I would suggest that readers not capable of attaining high grades in English Language may struggle to fully comprehend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanderson / Jordan deliver again., 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Once again Jordan, through Sanderson, has not failed to deliver. The only negative point is that, once complete, the reader is only one book away from finishing the epic series – that last book will really have to be savoured!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rather good introductory book, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent introductory book into the world of Greek Myths. Cleverly split into sections by character, yet also one easy to follow continuing story. Well suited for young learners but perhaps lacking for those seeking more depth and detail.
