Silent Boy


From the author of Sunday Times bestsellers One Child and Ghost Girl comes a heartbreaking story of a boy trapped in silence and the teacher who rescued him. When special education teacher Torey Hayden first met fifteen-year-old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table. Desperately afraid of the world around him, he hadn't spoken a word in eight years. He was considered hopeless, incurable. But Hayden refused to believe it, though she realised it might well take a miracle to break through the walls he had built around himself. With unwavering devotion and gentle, patient love, she set out to free him -- and slowly uncovered a shocking violent history and a terrible secret that an unfeeling bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten. Torey refused to give up on this tragic "lost case." For a trapped and frightened boy desperately needed her help -- and she knew in her heart she could not rest easy until she had rescued him from the darkness.

Beautiful Child


A stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination never to abandon a child in need from the internationally bestselling author of 'One Child' and No. 1 bestseller 'Ghost Girl'. Seven-year-old Venus Fox never spoke, never listened, never even acknowledged the presence of another human being in the room with her. Yet an accidental playground 'bump' would release a rage frightening to behold. The school year that followed would prove to be one of the most trying, perplexing, and ultimately rewarding of Torey's career, as she struggled to reach a silent child in obvious pain. It would be a strenuous journey beset by seemingly insurmountable obstacles and darkened by truly terrible revelations. Yet encouraged by sometimes small, sometimes dazzling breakthroughs, as a dedicated teacher, Torey remained committed to helping a 'hopeless' girl, and patiently and lovingly leading her toward the light of a new day.

Torey Hayden has to be the best writer of non fiction I have ever read.The way she writes,you feel like you know her and all her children.You feel like you have been in her classrooms and know her little ways.She shows her weaknesses and her strengths.For people who have children or work with children,read this book and any tantrum your child has ever had will pale into comparison to what Torey deals with every day in her classroom.

Murphy's Boy


When special education teacher Torey Hayden first met fifteen year old Kevin, he was barricaded under a table. Desperately afraid of the world around him, he hadn't spoken a word in eight years. He was considered hopeless, incurable, but Hayden refused to believe it, though she realised it might well take a miracle to break through the walls he had built around himself. With unwavering devotion and gentle, patient love, she set out to free him, - and slowly uncovered a shocking violent history and a terrible secret that an unfeeling bureaucracy had simply filed away and forgotten. But she never gave up on this tragic "lost case". For a trapped and frightened boy desperately needed her help - and she knew in her heart she could not rest easy until she had rescued him from the darkness.

This book is both heartbreaking and uplifting at different times. Kevin is a young man who you cannot help but feel very deeply for, he has had a life no-one should ever expereince. Torey Hayden is a very gifted lady both with a pen and with children. I would recommend this and other books of Torey's.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi


(U)

The third and final chapter in the original wondrous STAR WARS saga is RETURN OF THE JEDI. Luke (Mark Hamill) must save Han Solo (Harrison Ford) from the clutches of the monstrous Jabba the Hut, and bring down the newly reconstructed--and even more powerful--Death Star. With Han Solo imprisoned, Luke accompanies his faithful droids R2D2 (Kenny Baker) and C3PO (Anthony Daniels) in a rescue bid, with Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) also lending a hand. After they valiantly disentangle their friends from Jabba's clutches, Luke returns to his Jedi Knight training with Jedi master Yoda. Meanwhile, the Rebel Troops amass in an attempt to see off the impending threat from Darth Vader (played by David Prowse, voiced by James Earl Jones) and his new Death Star, with the operation being lead by Han Solo. But Luke must face Vader himself if he is to become a true Jedi Knight, and as he enters into a spirited battle with his light sabre-wielding enemy, some surprising revelations await the young warrior. Includes the original theatrical version of the film.

Another fine installment in the saga. Much prefer the original theatre version . Great fighting scenes between Luke and Vader - pity about the Yoda tho!!

Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back


(U)

Three years after the events in Episode IV - A New Hope, Imperial forces continue to pursue the rebels. After the rebellion's defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic. In an attempt to convert Luke to the Dark Side, Darth Vader lures young Skywalker into a trap in the Cloud City of Bespin...

My favourite movie of all time returns is is just brilliant. Don't worry about picture or sound or the fact that digital filming wasn't around when the movie was released, this is Star Wars for the purist in its starkest and darkest form.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope


(U)

Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill)--an impulsive but good hearted young man who lives on the dusty planet of Tatooine with his aunt and uncle--longs for the exciting life of a Rebel soldier. The rebels are fighting against the evil Empire, which has set about destroying planets inhabited by innocent citizens with the Death Star, a fearsome planet-like craft commanded by Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) and the eternally frightful Darth Vader (David Prowse, with the voice of James Earl Jones). When Luke's aunt and uncle are murdered by the Empire's imperial stormtroopers and he mysteriously finds a distress message from Princess Leia in one of his androids, R2-D2 (Kenny Baker), he must set out to find Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness), a mysterious old hermit with incredible powers. On his journey, Luke is aided by the roguish, sarcastic mercenary Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and his towering furry sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) as they run into a host of perilous situations while trying to rescue the princess--and the entire galaxy. STAR WARS--George Lucas' stunning sci-fi masterpiece—is an extremely inventive and entertaining film that garnered generations of loyal fans who are forever imprinted with the memory of its characters and dialogue. Magnificently referencing everything from Akira Kurosawa's SEVEN SAMURAI and THE HIDDEN FORTRESS to THE WIZARD OF OZ to John Ford Westerns and Joseph Campbell philosophies, STAR WARS revolutionised the cinematic world with its epic storytelling and amazing special effects. In addition to film veterans Guinness and Cushing, the movie also features an unforgettable performance from the young Ford, who would go on to become one of the biggest stars of the silver screen. Includes the original theatrical version of the film.

This movie is great. I really like it. Really it was superb. If you like action movies, you should watch this.

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith


(12)

Revenge of the Sith is by far the darkest of George Lucas's prequel trilogy, detailing the end of the legendary Clone Wars and the rise to power of the Sith. Witness General Grievous wielding four lightsabers; Anakin's rematch with Count Dooku; the terrifying purge of the Jedi; and the most-talked about lightsaber battle in Star Wars lore, as Obi-Wan and Anakin duel in the lava-strewn world of Mustafar; not to mention, the birth of the twins and Anakin's - post-lava - biomechanical transformation into Darth Vader. May the force be with you!

This Star Wars Episode hooks you from the start. This movie easily tops the rest of the Star Wars episodes. The final duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan-Kenobi is ferocious if you thought Yoda vs. Count Dooku was good then you haven't seen nothing yet

Star Wars: Episode II - The Attack of the Clones


A Jedi shall not know anger. Nor hatred. Nor love...

Anakin Skywalker disobeys the strictures of his Jedi training, embarking of a forbidden affair with Padme Amidala while his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi's investigation of assassination attempts against the Senator leads him to the distant planet of Kamino and into the middle of a separatist plot which brings the Galactic Republic to the very brink of civil war...

Another great film by George Lucas not the best of the new trilogy but still a great movie. Star Wars Attack of the Clones 10/10

Star Trek - Nemesis


(12)

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise-E crew find themselves on a diplomatic mission to initiate peace with the Romulans. Learning that the Romulans have undergone a political upheaval and their new Praetor, Shinzon, wants to discuss a peace treaty with the Federation, Picard and his crew must investigate the situation and determine Shinzon's sincerity. But they learn that not only is the new Praetor not a Romulan at all but a native of Romulus' sister planet Remus, they also find that he is a human replica of Picard, originally bio-engineered by the Romulans to be substituted for the captain as a weapon against the Federation. Now, Picard and his crew must determine if the Romulans truly desire a peace treaty, or if they have other plans in mind.

This Movie is a real head turner the action of the starship
combat is really good I have to recommend you buy this movie!!

Star Trek 9 - Insurrection


Engage! Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his Next Generation crew are back and so is the excitement and fun, in this the ninth feature film of the Star Trek series.

From the beginning of the Federation, the Prime Directive was clear: No Starfleet expedition may interfere with the natural development of other civilizations. But now Picard is confronted with orders that undermine that decree. If he obeys, 600 peaceful residents of Ba'kul will be forcibly removed from their remarkable world, all for the reportedly greater good of millions who will benefit from Ba'kul's Fountain Of Youth-like powers. If he disobeys, he will risk his Starship, his career and his life. But for Picard there's really only one choice. He must rebel against Starfleet... and lead the insurrection to preserve Paradise.

A brilliant addition to the Star Trek TNG collection, a good story and visually stunning. It is absurd that so little of Star Trek is currently available of DVD - obviously the franchise is lost in the past rather than the future.

Star Trek 8 - First Contact


(12)

Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Next Generation crew engage in their most thrilling adventure yet - a sci-fi action event that "stands proud and apart" (Richard Corliss, Time).

They call themselves the Borg - a half-organic, half machine collective with a sole purpose: to conquer and assimilate all races. Led by their seductive and sadistic queen (Alice Krige), the Borg are headed to Earth with a devious plan to alter history. Picard's earlier encounter with the Borg almost killed him. Now, he wants vengeance. But how far will he go to get it?

This is easily the best Star Trek movie made to date. It has action, a good story line, and keeps the viewer totally gripped all through the movie. I can watch this again and again. A must see for all Star Trek fans.

Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country


(PG)

The Battle For Peace Has Begun!

The Enterprise leads a battle for peace in the most spectacular Star Trek adventure ever! After years at war, the Federation and the Klingon empire prepare for a peace summit.

This is a fitting finale for the crew who started it all and a damn good movie in its own right. The plot is intelligent and makes the viewer think, the script and direction are excellent and the action exciting.

Star Trek 5 - The Final Frontier


(15)

It's Stardate 8454.130 and a vacationing Captain Kirk faces two challenges: Climbing Yosemite's El Capitan and teaching campfire songs to Spock. But vacations are cut short when a renegade Vulcan hijacks the Enterprise, and pilots it on a journey to uncover the universe's innermost secrets.

The Star Trek stars are back for one of their most astonishing voyages ever, with all the fun and excitement fans have come to love. So buckle up for a thrilling leap into the unknown that's "as much a spiritual odyssey as a space adventure, and it's all the richer for it," says Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times.

Now that a new Star Trek feature movie has been released it is good to check out some of the older movies. This is probably the best one.

Star Trek 4 - The Voyage Home


(PG)

William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the U.S.S. Enterprise crew come down to earth in one of the most acclaimed and intriguing Star Trek adventures ever.

It's the 23rd century and a mysterious alien power is threatening Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. In a frantic attempt to save mankind, Kirk and his crew must time travel back to 1986 San Francisco, where they find a world of punk, pizza and exact-change buses that are as alien as anything they've ever encountered in the far reaches of the galaxy. A thrilling, action-packed mission for the Enterprise crew!

Will Shatner contributes most of the effort to this text and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is exactly like the film, but even if you've seen it, this is still worth a read. Any Trekkie will love this, and it could just hook newcomers. Go on, take a chance, but this, you will like it

Star Trek: The Search For Spock


(PG)

Admiral Kirk's defeat of Khan and the creation of the Genesis planet are empty victories. Spock is dead and McCoy is inexplicably being driven insane. Then a surprise visit from Sarek, Spock's father, provides a startling revelation: McCoy is harbouring Spock's living essence. With one friend alive and one not, but both in pain, Kirk attempts to help his friends by stealing the USS Enterprise and defying Starfleet's Genesis planet quarantine. But the Klingons, led by fearsome Battle Commander Kruge, have also learned of Genesis and race to meet Kirk in a deadly rendezvous...

After seeing The Wrath Of Kahn I bought The Search For Spock on DVD, and was very pleasantly surprised, I had heard from others that this movie wasn't up to much, but after watching it, it takes pride of place in my DVD collection.

It is the 23rd century. The Federation Starship U.S.S. Enterprise is on routine training manoeuvres, and Admiral James T. Kirk seems resigned to the fact that this inspection may well be the last space mission of his career. But Khan is back...

Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan - the brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrestled control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk . . . with the threat of a universal Armageddon!

This movie stands as not just the crowning glory of Star Trek, but also as a classic movie in it's own right.

The supernatural thriller is a stand-alone story in the tradition of some of the show's most acclaimed and beloved episodes, and takes the always-complicated relationship between Fox Mulder (Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Anderson) in unexpected directions. Mulder continues his unshakable quest for the truth, and Scully, the passionate, ferociously intelligent physician, remains inextricably tied to Mulder's pursuits.

This movie is a bit boring but it has a good story line.

Transformers



(12)

Dueling alien races, the Autobots and the Decepticons, bring their battle to Earth, leaving the future of humankind hanging in the balance.

Introduced in 1984, the Transformers brand took the world by storm with its compelling saga of the Autobots versus the Decepticons. Over 20 years on and director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg bring us a thrilling battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. When their epic struggle comes to Earth, all that stands between the evil Decepticons and ultimate power is a clue held by Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf). Join the fight for mankind in the extraordinary adventure that "features some of the most spectacular action and effects sequences of any movie of its kind will appeal to the kid in all of us." (Claudia Puig, US Today).

This is one of the best movies of 2007 - no it will not change the world, or solve problems, but it is entertaining, fast and furious, the transformers are superb - a little bit of escapism - much needed in this troubled world - ENJOY.

Serenity



(15)

Beloved television cult director Joss Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel) makes a spectacular first foray onto the big screen with Serenity, the cinematic adaptation of his wildly popular but short-lived sci-fi series, Firefly. A mix of space western, comedy, and drama, Serenity follows captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds (Nathan Fillion) and his ragtag crew as they trade their way around the edges of civilized society. Of particular interest are two passengers they take on, Simon and River Tam (Sean Maher and Summer Glau), a brother and his telepathic sister on the run from the corrupt governing Alliance. As notorious former members of the anti-Alliance opposition, Mal and his crew make it difficult for Simon and River to stay hidden. Everything goes completely awry when a government assassin is sent to retrieve River. As Mal is forced to choose between his close-knit crew and the brother and sister newcomers, it becomes apparent that River harbors both a dangerous secret and astounding fighting powers, and Mal decides that discovering the truth about what she knows might just be worth his time.

Many of the film's action sequences revolve around Summer Glau's martial arts skills in her portrayal of River. Glau prepared for her role with Hong Kong stuntwoman Ming Lu, as well as stunt coordinators Chad Stahelski and Hiro Koda, and as a result performed nearly all the stuntwork herself. In addition to the stellar stunts, realistic graphics, and an often haunting score, the film's actors display a rare chemistry that brings viewers both into their lives and into a possible version of humanity's future.

This is one of the best , if not the best movie of 2005. Buy this film now if you liked the series (Firefly), just see it .

On a cold night in a remote cabin, Professor John Oldman (David Lee Smith of CSI: Miami) gathers his most trusted colleagues for an extraordinary announcement: He is an immortal who has migrated through 140 centuries of evolution and must now move on. Is Oldman truly Cro-Magnon or simply insane? Now one man will force these scientists and scholars to
confront their own notions of history, religion and humanity, all leading to a final revelation that may shatter their world forever.

This is a low budget movie, but that does not mean it is not worth seeing. If you are looking for action then this is not the movie for you. If you are looking for an interesting concept yet slow story then perhaps it is.

Night of the Living Dead


(18)

It's a new night for terror and a new dawn in horror movie-making when special-effects genius Tom Savini (creator of the spectacularly gruesome make-up in Friday The 13th and Creepshow) brings modern technology to this colorful remake of George A. Romero's 1968 cult classic.

Seven strangers are trapped in an isolated farmhouse while cannibalistic zombies - awakened from death by the return of a radioactive space probe - wage a relentless attack, killing (and eating) everyone in their path. The classicifor the 90's graphic, gruesome and more terrifying than ever!

Poor acting, poor special effects, but still a fun film if you love zombies.
