Love the Way You Lie
I am not a fan of rap music at all. But this song gripped me from the start.       After watching the Video I think we are looking at the next Grammy Awards Winner.      …

Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty
First off I loved Starcraft and the expansion. For me it was the ultimate best in RTS gaming. Warcraft was fine (inc #3) but I was never the one for World of Warcraft.      Starcraft …

Tropa de Elite
Look at our unit symbol, it is a skull with two handguns and a dagger, what do you think we do.      In my opinion this was the best movie in 2008. It is a roller coster ride of raw …

Vory v zakone - Thieves in law.      This movie left me very pleased, the script is very good, nothing is over explained but every thing connects. There is a constant threat of menace …

Lilya 4 ever
This is one of the most eye opening and profound experiences I have see in a movie.      It tells the story of Lilya, a Eastern European girl left to fend for herself in a cruel world.   …

This book by Terry Prachett (know for the Discworld series) and Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Stardust among others) is a perfect marriage. Both are very capable of using subtleties to the extreme and here they …

Torrente, el brazo tonto de la ley
Racist, sexist, politically incorrect and hillarious. You almost feel bad about laughing at some of the jokes but they have to be seen to believe. Segura plays the anti-hero in a better role that has …

The Pacific
As production values go, this show has everything in abundance. It even puts most motion pictures to shame. Pitty it didn't have a script that was of the same value. In fact it failed badly in so many …
Poland 1939: The Birth Of Blitzkrieg (Campaign)
A good book in the series and it gives a good overview of the invasion in Poland and its place in the events of World War 2.     It adresses a few myths and explains in a satisfactory …

GUNS AGAINST THE REICH: Memoirs of an Artillery
With all the recent Soviet WW2 memoirs being published in English recently this one stands out as a good read. Petr Mikhin is recruited young as a Soviet Officer and by the age of 23 he leads an entire …
reviewed ATTACK ON LENINGRAD (2009) (2009). June 27, 2010

First off, "Attack on Leningrad" is a very misleading title. Long drawn siege would be better. The action scene on the cover is also very misleading. At the start there is a battle scene redone from "Enemy …

Dark Blue World (2001)
This is one of the best War Movies in later days and shines where others have failed. It goes a long way to show that a big budget does not always produce the best results. A good story is always better. …

There are quite a few War Movies made about soldiers reminiscent of war. Saving Private Ryan, Brotherhood, Flags of Our Fathers and Days of Glory to name a few. This movie ranks with the best of them. …

Kate Beckinsale, Tom Skerritt - cool setting but it adds up to near nothing. Even the basic script was decent but the execution took care of that. A lot of poorly and overdone CGI didn't help much either …

John Constantine, Hellblazer: Pandemonium
As Hellblazer and Constantine go this is a good book. Written as a single story for some kind of annivesary, the story is well written. The humour is black and the build up is good.     Our …

The Hurt Locker (2009)
Hurt Locker isn't a bad film in itself and the story of the main character is interesting, as is the menace of the bombs and the faceless duel that seems to ensue. I think that part of the film is clever.  &nbs …
Tank Rider: Into the Reich with the Red Army
I actually like this book a lot.    Evgeni Bessonov was an platoon leader from 1943, after the Kursk Offensive right to the battle of Berlin. He was an infantry man who rode with the …

I bought this CD because I play WW2 minature wargames and already I had a collection of American, British and German songs and thought this would be a good addition. While playing I use this as background …
Achtung - Panzer! (Cassell Military Classics)
First off this book is propaganda where Guderian promotes his ideas on the use of tanks. More than half the book is Guderian's rather liberal interpretations on tanks in World War 1 and to be frank these …

Sniper on the Eastern Front: The Memoirs of Sepp
Having bought and read this book based on the good reviews here I must say I personally disagree. The text is repetitious and smells a little too much of a whitewash with just enough contrary evidence …
Gazala 1942: Rommel's greatest victory (Campaign)
I am quite impressed with the text of Gazala 1942 - Rommel's greatest victory. This campaign book fits very nicely between Tobruk 1941 (Campaign 80) and El Alamein 1942 (Campaign 158) and together they …
Tobruk 1941: Rommel's opening move (Campaign)
Osprey Campaign Series has produced several fine books. In a fairly short book paticular battles are outlined with supporting maps and pictures.  Tobruk is a fine example of such a book. Military …
El Alamein 1942: The Turning of the Tide
When I first reviewed this book I gave it 3 stars since I had just recently finished another of Osprey's Campaign Books, the one about Tobruk and by comparison I found this one a tad disappointing. Not …
Desert Rats: British 8th Army in North Africa
After a reading few rather good Campaign books from Osprey lately this book was a disappointment and I find it hard to think of anyone enjoying it or finding it useful. A mature WW2 reader will find little …
