5.0 out of 5 stars Look Good, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another phone from LG that promises good value for the price, 8 gig internal memory half of which is used by installed software so lucky a memory card slot sits over the sim card slot which to get good use out of phone I would advise buyer to use to prevent low memory messages and to get good use out of phone.Controls are all on back of phone under rear camera on off switch plus volume control takes some getting used to,the design of phone is very chic and the back cover is plastic but still looks and feel quite classy the back also has a curved back feels and looks more expensive.
Camera is 8 mpix and takes quite good pictures on rear and front camera included for selfies, smooth operation overall and nice design that looks and feels a lot better when you have handset in your hand.
You will like the way the screen snap shut when you shut the screen quite a tasty looking phone and a bargain for the price.

This review is from: Bullitt (OST) (Audio CD)
Great musical action and great value two versions of the music score one version hardcore from the movie and then another more musical version almost a double album some great jazz and funk elements and brass big band pieces a real sample of the jazz edge of Lalo Scifrin at this time, main theme song my stand out track really sounds magnificent and super cool if you love the movie or good music this is a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Express action, 28 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great suspense action movie all set on a high class express train,starring Richard Harris Sophia Loren Martin sheen Oj Simpson and the magnificent Burt Lancaster the original man in black.
Disaster is on the horizon when a terrorist infected with a plague boards the train the race is on to find him and place him in isolation and prevent spread of disease.
Fast paced start explains the plot don't miss that movie then explores various lives and relationships on board this moving stage before the action stage by stage starts to build along with the tension.
Burt Lancaster is fantastic as the government agent sent in to keep the whole affair from getting more out of control.Have watched this a few times but not really noted how this film was
ahead of its time, this movie is full of action,conspiracy and amazing views across europe get it on your big screen.

Almost as good as the tv series but the main feeling is your reading non fiction that really happened but in parts so amazing you could not make it up,good insight into this case and all the details covered which is lots of reading and mind searching over the final verdict and the justice system in the USA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Moto, 10 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Phone has a solid feel in hand with a 4.5 screen which is quite amazing in its sharpness and colours 16gb memory means it should have no memory issues for most uses also can take two sims.Camera on rear is only 5 mgpix with flash, but you can still take reasonable pictures also camera to front for selfies.Music is of good quality both through external speaker and headphones, playing music out of external speaker the music sounding quite detailed and smooth,through (good) headphones you get hifi like quality which gives great music listening.Calls are crisp and clear and handset has a nice feel against ear with smooth rounded edges.Watching videos is a real pleasure with great detail and colours from the awesome screen, these phones have been updated with a larger screen and more powerful camera but if you like something more compact but still packing lots of punch you cant go wrong with this Moto.

Update some might find intresting comparison against Acer e3 while the Acer has a larger screen than the Motorola the Moto g has a richer sense of colours and sharpness and quality watching movie clips on the Moto the screen gives a clear sharp presentation,while the Acer can deliver a lighter a less focused veiwing,the Moto seems better even though it has the smaller screen.
Using in ear headphones by sound magic with both phones, music on the Acer using the built in dts soundprocessing that is built into Acer phones really sounds impressive and sharp and detailed the bass response is very detailed without distortion even when level up loud, the Moto sounds a little more polite sounding quite smooth with nice treble detail although bass detail is there its not as crisp and powerful as the Acer with music.The Acer has a 13 mpx camera which does a great job taking pictures the wide lens gives great results.
The Motog has a well made 5mpx camera while not as good as the Acer the way the camera operates makes operation seem less complex and direct and you can get reasonable results.
Main plus point of the Moto G is the 16gig internal and storage memory which means it will be a while before memory issues pop up while the Acer with only 4gig needed constant adjustment to free up internal memory even with sd card fitted .At this time have had a few phone crashes with Acer probably memory issues finding the Moto g more stable,there you have it great allrounder or music lover loves photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good film, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say did not read the book so did not do a compare job, thought this was a great and thoughtful movie with great acting and the director examines via the film ideas around the lives of the rich and the poor living in close proxmity yet keeping seperate,from penthouse to street life just a wrong turning of the main road away.There is humour some of it dark Tom hanks is great as a high flyer whos life is on the verge of greater sucess and then ruined in the space of a few days.This film also looks at at motives of central characters,politicians,religous leaders news editors,news reporters, this is a big glossy looking movie a couple of silly scenes Mr Willis falling around as the boozed up news hack who is hurried to stardom by revealing someone else`s misfortune, does not spoil this movie for me I enjoyed this movie a lot cant see why Brian Depalma`s film is given such bad reviews and even after 15 years it is still very watchable.

The sound of the great trombone player who sadly passed recently,had the original album when it first came out in the late 70s it blew me away then and shocked now at how good this album still sounds,now I look back and understand why I loved playing this repeatedly as a young teen,loving reggae and jazz this album satisfied my love of both genres.The backing tracks are crisp and detailed with superb musicmanship when you look at the session players the best in the reggae field of the day including sly and robbie you start to recognise this albums is real music art.Then you have the awesome majestic sound of Ricos trombone playing alongside some of the best horn players in reggae who open up and play with free expression ,this cd sounding very musical and powerful on my system,first nine tracks are the original tracks from original album additional tracks included not sure if recorded from the same session but add on tracks have the same rico sound and flavour, feels almost like a double album of rico , great sound this album is definite for your music collection.

Nice build on cleaner ,moves around easily readjusts carefully around obstacles chair table legs ,walls, cleaner noise is quite loud ,it does actually pick up some dust and fine particles,but you may not notice this in use as other particles of dirt it should be picking up get left behind ,so carpet does not look any cleaner after this has been active in room for 20min which is the whole point of this machine surely they did testing on this product before releasing,it does move around in a amazing way looks good a touch noisy you would not mind the noise if it picked up stuff and that's the main weakness it does not do the core job maybe the motor is to weak or the suction input poorly designed ,which is a shame for the price this would have been a great buy but in this form a waste of time and money.Also note if unit is returnable to seller,mine was not so you may end up stuck with machine if problems arise.So while machine looks good value I would go elsewhere and check feedback on any vacum purchase and not just price.

This review is from: Bullitt [1968] [DVD] (DVD)
Bullitt a crime thriller from the late 60s starring Steve Mcqueen ,all suits and ties but Steve stands out with his cool casual attire,parts of the script are a bit corny the surname Bullitt for example a little to obvious.Although the film being almost fifty years old is still very watchable,McQueen playing it lean and mean as is his acting method,Robert Vaughan playing the politician trying to influence police matters,adds a realistic spark to this crime drama,the main highlight of this movie is the fantastic high speed chase through the hilly city streets of San Francisco.Great super cool jazzy theme music by Lalo Scifrin sets the scene to get you into the swing,also extra includes background on the chase scene and the training of the two main drivers with McQueen doing his own stunt driving.Overall great value and a classic movie.
