Kajaki [DVD]
Kajaki [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mark Stanley
Price: £10.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly amazing and not a sign of Hollywood licence., 23 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kajaki [DVD] (DVD)
Although in my late 70's I have been lucky enough not to have been engaged in a real war. Just missed Korea, Cyprus and Kenya. However, this film has to be as near the truth as I have ever seen. None of this American 'dramatisation' and 'base on a true story'. This is gritty, nail biting and frighteningly realistic. A portrayal of a situation in all its naked heroism and love for their buddies. If you want to see what our lads have been through in Afghanistan then this is a must see. It will really make you admire the amazing qualities of our armed forces and, hopefully, make those who have doubts about what these lads went through see them in a proper light.


The First and the Last
The First and the Last
by Adolf Galland
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor translation causes three star rating, 4 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First and the Last (Paperback)
The story in itself is very interesting, it's good to read the war story from the other side, but the translation is abysmal. It is almost as though it is a literal translation by someone not fully qualified in the German language. This is a real shame because it makes the book quite difficult to read and detracts from the story being told. The type setting is even worse and in some sections it is not possible to understand the meaning of sentences until the second or third reading. Words are hyphenated when not needed, Fuhrer is written as Fiihrer, and as ard, and so on. I feel the typesetter
must have been a trainee on their first day release from Primary school.

It is such a shame because the story written in good grammatical English would have been much more interesting. If you are interested in WW2 this is a fascinating tale of one mans' frustrations caused by inept leaders who had no understanding of listening to how things worked on the 'shop floor' . Certainly worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and superbly acted, 3 April 2015

Well written, superbly acted and followed my knowledge of the man closely. Yes there are one or two incidents of theatrical licence but this has to be accepted in that five+ years are condensed into two hours. Well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb live feel to this recording, 11 Nov. 2014

This review is from: Miss Saigon (Audio CD)
A brilliant recording with a live feel to it by having the audience reaction and applause. It is rather a shame that there is an audible click between the tracks that I put down to a compilation fault. It still is a brilliant recording and most certainly makes me want to see the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book 4 as good as 1,2 & 3 - good page turners, 10 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read all four books one after the other. Although four different stories there is a thread running though all of them. All have, obviously, been well researched and the style of writing gives you a real page turner. I thoroughly enjoyed all four books and would recommend them as good relaxing reading.

Fast moving and well researched. Have read the first three books one after the other as the story is so well told. I am now starting book four and cannot wait to see how this continuing story evolves. Most certainly page turners.

Jersey Boys Original Broadway Cast Recording [Uk Version]
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel good music, 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of my era and very listenable. I found the dialogue inserts quite wooden but not a detraction from the music. The stage show of Jersey Boys and the world touring show New Jersey Nights are really excellent 'feel good' shows and both are worth a visit. I haven't worn out the CD yet but my cloud player is almost on autopilot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why do Hollywood screw everything up., 18 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Lone Survivor [DVD] (DVD)
This is based on fact. Why do the Americans have to add fiction? It's watchable but the added dramatics do not add to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars As it says on the cover, the British answer to The Hurt Locker, 18 Jun. 2014

This review is from: The Patrol [DVD] (DVD)
Very watchable. No Hollywood dramatics. The film just tells it as it is. One son, a reservist, really appreciated the honest way the story is told.
