Pathbreaking book on Evolution/Genetics

Posted : 9 years, 3 months ago on 28 February 2008 03:13 (A review of The Selfish Gene: 30th Anniversary Edition--with a new Introduction by the Author)

This book sparked my interest in evolution and genetics. He has his atheist agenda which bugs me a little. However, this doesn't detract from his excellent writing and lucid presentation of a complicated topic.

Unexpected delightful pairing

Posted : 9 years, 3 months ago on 28 February 2008 03:09 (A review of Raising Sand)

Somehow their diverse styles mesh into something beautiful. A few songs sound like right of Led Zeppelin's playbook and a few sound like gospel. One of the best albums of 2007.

Eric Clapton plays the blues

Posted : 9 years, 3 months ago on 28 February 2008 02:43 (A review of Crossroads)

Collects Eric Clapton's guitar work for several bands in the 60s as well his solo work in the 70s and early 80s. Arguably, this is the time he did his best work. All four CDs have high quality music. A must for every fan of Clapton and a great intro as well to this blues-rock master.

Commitment

Posted : 9 years, 4 months ago on 17 February 2008 09:32 (A review of Keeping the Faith)

"The truth is you can never tell yourself there is only one thing you could be. If you are a priest or if you marry a woman it's the same challenge. You cannot make a real commitment unless you accept that it's a choice that you keep making again and again and again."

The Wachowski's Breathtaking Vision

Posted : 9 years, 4 months ago on 2 February 2008 11:27 (A review of The Ultimate Matrix Collection (The Matrix/ The Matrix Reloaded/ The Matrix Revolutions/ The Animatr)

It takes more than one viewing to take in the grand vision of this trilogy. The Wachowski brothers have created something magnificent.

How did they get it so wrong?

Posted : 9 years, 10 months ago on 13 August 2007 04:48 (A review of Dune (Extended Edition))

It takes a special talent to make a dull movie based on one of the best scifi novels of all time and the film makers and editors are definitely "special".

Powerful

Posted : 10 years, 3 months ago on 1 March 2007 09:31 (A review of Night and Fog)

A French documentary about Nazi concentration camps during WW II. By far, the best documentary I have ever seen. It's is just 30 minutes long, but will keep you thinking for hours afterwards.

Fantasy at its finest

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 27 February 2007 01:17 (A review of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell: A Novel)

The book takes a little getting into, as it covers very long time periods in the first of three parts. The action speeds up in the second part and is absolutely breakneck in the third. the plot is brilliant, and all the time that you spend on the book will be well worth it. It is richly scattered with motifs and dark imagery. This isn't your run of the mill fantasy novel that borrows from medieval ideas of knights and swordplay. It is set very much in the modern era. Magic is interwoven into the fabric of everyday life and feels natural. All in all, fantasy at it's finest.
