4.0 out of 5 stars How to Be a Hero, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My daughter teaches history and shows parts of this to her classes. It may be an old movie, but it's a good one,.

4.0 out of 5 stars Life Among the Inhibited, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Age of Innocence (DVD)
It is amazing what some social cultures demand of people in them. Even the people who seem to be in positions that would make for wonderful, happy lives may not have those lives for reasons such as portrayed in this movie. Besides that, what movie with Daniel Day Lewis was ever a bad one?

My daughter watches this film and the one that preceded it over and over, and I am a fan of Brian Denehy. What more do we need?


The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?
The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?
by Jared Diamond
Edition: Hardcover
155 used & new from $1.59

4.0 out of 5 stars The World Until Yesterday for Dummies, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book isn't intended to be a scholarly look at life among non-modern peoples, so critics might say it is not good information. I think it is because it introduced me to some new ideas and led me to look up information elsewhere to collaborate what he said. There were times I couldn't find this information, but that doesn't lower the value of the book to me. I am a fan of books that give an "overview" of a subject (hence the "Dummies" in the headline above), and Diamond does this quite well. I have other books by him.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Grow Up Using Only Your Mind, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a first book by the author, as I understand it. His words paint pictures in my mind and help me understand something of what it is like for a boy to grow up in less than good circumstances that we wish all children could have.

You can believe that this man really lived and had some of the adventures this movie portrays. The photography is great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Non-literature made Palatable, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Troy (DVD)
The Iliad is handled rather roughly in several places, and Brad Pitt is too moody for a Greek hero. Eric Bana does a fine job, though.
This Helen is lovely, but I doubt if her face would launch a thousand ships and burn the topless towers of Ilium.


Babe (Widescreen Special Edition)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Heart-warmer for Everyone, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Laughter, sadness, tears, and triumph! Who could ask for more in a movie! The wife should really get much credit for the humor in this tale.

4.0 out of 5 stars A British Thriller, October 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dead Again (1991) (DVD)
The two are fine actors it is always fun to watch. The ending is a bit weak and unlikely, but the rest is all right

4.0 out of 5 stars What's Not to Like about Gregory Peck, April 17, 2009
We don't get to see movies today such as this one that combines action, conflict, and a love affair (without baseness and nudity), so sit back and watch what dating couples got to see when this movie came out.
