3.0 out of 5 stars Yes, it's a 3-star 'okay' but not quite a 4-star 'I like it', 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Master [DVD] (DVD)
Philip Seymour Hoffman however, is quite superb: and his 'gongs' for his performance were well warranted.
But I can honestly say that I did not particularly find the movie to be as good as I was anticipating. But tyhat's just my opinion.
It is, of course, based on a controversial subject and some of its scenes were unsettling.
I bought the dvd rather than wait for it to be released thru LoveFilm. I'll share it with chums and see what they reckon.
I would conclude by saying again that PSH is "quite superb" in it. He can turn his hand at portraying many a different character role with dexterity. Joaquin Phoenix did wonderfully well and how right it was that he got a serious gong for his performance for which, at the end of each day's shoot, he would have been worn to a frazzle. (On reflection - I ought to view it again before I pass the dvd on - I may even change my mind on my rating of it).

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat your heart out "Saturday Kitchen Live", 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book with a fascinating presentation/binding. Judging a book by its cover - eye-catching illustration, complementing it's title ... you then go to work on its recipes. Come 'food's up' time and with a suitable bottle of Italian red, you can be in your very own Milano - or anywhere else in Italy for that matter. No wonder it has received such great reviews and, re-prints. "Polpo" will never end up as a 'remainder'.

4.0 out of 5 stars My brother-in-law 'saw the film' and now he's got the book!, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought him a variety of fruit trees for Christmas. He planted them properly and now they are blossoming. Next they'll be bearing fruit. This book has, demonstrably, proved to be an excellent adjunct to the gift of the fruit trees. He has evidently learnt much from it. He reckons soon he will have his own produce stall at Borough Market!

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT a oneday wonder, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We're forever getting quantities of dry pasta wrong - either too much or too little.
This little gadget has proved to be invaluable and continues to be. It's by no means a 'one day wonder'.
It's of good quality and takes-up hardly any space in the kitchen drawer.
The supplier performed well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of other choices but these shape-up well, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While I don't work to make a big deal about buying this sort of product (it's a bit like 'Life being too short to make Battenburg cakes'), I nevertheless want ones that properly do the job ...
with a reasonable life-span ... and at a sensible price. These little chappies fulfil all of those criteria.
The supplier did well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A valuable back-up, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To have two of these chargers makes a great deal of back-up sense - esp. if you lose or can't find the original.
Particularly helpful when you're away - incl. for a variety of devices beyond, in my case, iPad ... e.g. Kindle.
The quality of this one is good and it performs well. Having looked at other options,
I am pleased that I chose this one - incl. for its price.
The supplier did well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pen with a good, internatio0nal, reputation, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Among the cluttered pen marketplace, this Uni-ball continues to perform.
The supplier properly provided as per its commitment - quite UNlike one of its
competitors - "All-in-One logistics" : this Company failed
recently to honour its advertised commitment as regards Ball Pentel R50.

3.0 out of 5 stars A minefield out there but these appear to do the job, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much to chose from in the ice cube tray marketplace, incl. some very expensive ones.
But these, at £7.70 for 4, were worth giving a whirl. So far so good but it's all about the amount of 'wear & tear' they will get. Frankly, with a reasonably high through-put of ice cubes, for all sorts of reasons, an ice making MACHINE is probably the obvious choice. But they do not come cheap and so, work away you little "Splash's" and please work well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Preparing for the sun ..., 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
... that is assuming we'll get some in England.
But off to sunnier climes soon and from past experience,
this Nivea range of "immediate protection" does just that:
incl. in places like Papua New Guinea, Tonga and Samoa
not so long back.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, comprehensive, set with different sizes, 14 May 2013

Bought these to go in - and stay in - a picnic basket.
Just the job. Looked at all options and these shaped-up well.
At £6.99 the set, we're set!
