5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for relieving joint pressure from flat feet, 19 April 2017
After suffering a painful toe joint due to flat feet for quite a while, I was advised to try these by my GP, & within a couple of days the pain was gone. I have used these in all my shoes ever since, & the pain has vanished. I have tried not using them, & the pain in my joint returns within an hour or so of walking. So these really do the trick for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy, sturdy, & quality product, 31 Mar. 2016
I am very pleased with my 'Model 38' organiser. I'm usually carrying a large bunch of various keys with me, & was always picking through them to find the one I needed, but this is just the thing for keeping them divided into 'home', 'car', 'bike', 'work', etc. They hang, spaced conveniently from the main 'revolver' ring. The material of all the pieces is sturdy, with a quality look & feel. The clips have a very strong grip, & will not open unless you specifically press the mechanism in; but they allow for quick release of individual key sets or tools when you need to detach them from the main ring. Even the Western-style packaging is very nice.

This review is from: LEGO 10664 Creative Tower (Toy)
Compared to other Lego sets, this large non-themed collection of traditional Lego bricks (plus a fair number of special pieces such as eyes & hinges) is excellent value. It includes many of the newer colours such as orange, khaki, & bright green, plus (in greater quantities) the original primary colours. This set forms a very decent core of pieces for the new Lego enthusiast, & a sizable expansion for the veteran. Excellent for builders & creative types, young & old!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & engaging journey, 30 May 2015

This review is from: Hidden Fortress [1958] [DVD] (DVD)
Very enjoyable journey, with engaging characters, humour, stunning scenery, & limited but impressive action sequences. I am a big fan of Kurosawa's samurai masterpieces, but Hidden Fortress feels refreshingly open & free compared to the dynastic & military struggles seen in many of his other works. Hidden Fortress is also interesting as one of the key inspirations for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

This review is from: Yojimbo [1961] [DVD] (DVD)
Strikingly different to many other Kurosawa films, with a slightly tongue-in-cheek feel rather than the often grim fatalism of his other samurai movies. The 'spaghetti Western' influences are blatant, & the characters enjoyably over-acted. Lots of build up, with brief, explosive action sequences. It's worth watching Sergio Leone's unofficial Western remake of Yojimbo - A Fistful of Dollars - for comparisons.

Absolutely fantastic album - blissful, euphoric, & hypnotically soporific.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pale in comparison to Saving Private Ryan, 30 May 2015
This review is from: Fury [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
I found Fury a very mixed bag. Stylistically it goes for the look of Saving Private Ryan, & like that film, basically consists of a series of set-pieces linked by quieter character-driven parts. However, overall it is inferior to the Saving Private Ryan. The opening is interesting, & it's refreshing seeing war from a tanker perspective for a change. The 'laser beam' tracer fire was distracting at first, as it doesn't seem to blend well with the rest of the look, but apparently the colours are accurate. I thought the strongest part was the tense scene around the dinner table. The drawn-out climax I found just awful - frankly ridiculous Hollywood stuff - that seemed very much at odds with the rest of the film.

Great adaptation of the novel, very atmospheric, with excellent performances by the actors. The look of the film was very much how I imagined the settings & characters when I read the novel, which was nice.
