I'm reporting back on the "Last Emperor". Please follow me on twitter






As promised, I'm reporting back on the "Last Emperor". 
A lot of dialogue, Chinese architecture, opulently said,
long and engaging.  If you enjoy James Michener’s style
 this is a good movie for you.

Please follow me on twitter for library news.

I am appalled


I don't know about you but I am appalled by the low content quality network television presents. Although, I must admit I have a minimal TV package. i.e., only on-air stations and don't watch too much television. However, I have decided that I'm going to actively protest and begin selecting and viewing the libraries DVD collection, which are all-encompassing from “Downton Abbey” to “Deadwood”.  My first excursion will be to check out The Last Emperor, The epic adventure and true story of Pu Yi, who, at the age of 3, toddled to the Imperial Dragon Throne to become "Lord of 10,000 Years, " China's last emperor. Now this is something I really need to know about the transition from a dynasty to the People's Republic. Stay tuned; I'll let you know how it was.  Also, for those who were brave at heart you may try our new RBdigital Gateway
