5.0 out of 5 stars Anne Stokes' beautiful art, high quality calendar!, 28 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
High quality 16 month calendar, as usual with Anne Stokes' previous releases.

As usual, Anne's art is featured on the top half of the calendar with the dates taking up the bottom half, leaving plenty of room for important writing/dates etc. The picture quality is clear and highly detailed. This year, each picture is circled with a border complimenting the piece. John Woodward has again written a small paragraph to accompany each piece. In contrast to her previous calendars, this one seems lighter with a more stone-like (its the only way I can describe it) effect behind each image leaving most of the pages cream, but this works well. The one thing I did notice this year is the finish. Her previous examples were silky and smooth, but this release has almost a matte finish, but this gives the calendar a more sturdy feel. Overall, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best soundtrack in years!, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Frozen (Audio CD)
The title says it really, Frozen is the best soundtrack Disney has brought out in years. Each song is performed powerfully and the emotions in which the characters are feeling echo through each track perfectly. Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel are faultless in their perfomances with my personal favourite being 'Let it go' (Idina Menzel) which I have reviewed individually too. Its nice to have a Demi Lovato version of 'Let it go' in there too but nothing comes close to the original. Simply put, the Frozen soundtrack is worth buying if your a fan of the movie or Disney.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let It Go (MP3 Download)
Having heard Idina Menzel's music before (from Wicked) I had to buy this song, but not just because of this. Let it go is such a powerful and beautiful song with a strong voice bringing it to life. Very few songs bring out so many emotions in me all at once and this is one of them. Idina Menzel's amazing vocals convey the emotions that Elsa is feeling perfectly. Simply put, an epic song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful song!, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a big fan of Amy Lee and Evanescence, I had to download this song. Her melodies flow beautifully with the lyrics as they do with most of her music. If your not sure, listen to it first either as a demo or on youtube etc. Either way, Im very happy with my download as despite beimg a short song, it is incredibly beautiful.

A previous reviewer said that the album cover was misleading, but its not. Kermit's face is actually made up with the artists names who performed on this album. The reason they make up Kermits face is simply because this is a tribute album of the muppets best songs sung by various rock and alt. artists, so essentially, its not misleading. Also Amy Lee is listed as the artist to prevent confusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Ev fans!, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As per my review title, I highly recommend these badges. Each features a different picture of Amy Lee, and a song title from Evanescence's new(ish) album of the same name. The songs are, Made of Stone, Oceans, New Way to Bleed and Disappear. The pictures are of a high quality, as are the badges.
In a summery, great badges of a high quality, recommended for all Amy Lee or Evanescence fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bryke havn't lost their touch!, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As per my title, Bryke (Bryan and Mike, co-creators) really havn't lost their touch.
As a massive Avatar: TLA fan, I couldn't wait for LoK to come to the UK.
Like its predecessor, this series is truly epic, following the next Avatar, Korra as she attepts to learn airbending. Not giving away too much of the story, she travels to Republic City and soon discovers an anti-bending revolution, lead by the mysterious masked man Amon.
There are echoes of TLA throughout and the humour remains the same, held together with loveable characters and a great storyline. You can really see how the world has moved on since the war ended.
As a massive fan of Avatar: TLA it was hard to let go of the Gaang and the world we left behind but this did dissipate as the story moved onwards, knowing the links between the two shows were still strong.
Just a note, this is the whole of Book 1, despite the item title.
The only special features, are audio commentary on four of the episodes, two on each disc (Its a 2 disc set) and 'Making of a Legend'
I highly recommend it to any Avatar: TLA fan or any anime/fantasy action/adventure fan really.
Bring on Book 2: Spirits!

5.0 out of 5 stars Red Panda!, 7 Sep 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Lying Red Panda 20cm (Toy)
This red panda is adorable and cute. He appears just like in the pictures. His fur is really soft and lovely to touch and a lot of detail has gone into him. He is exactly as described and simply beautiful. Specially his furry tail!
As for fun, all children love cuddly toys so that speaks for itself, though I intend to just cuddle him while watching the Legend of Korra!
He can be considered educational for the fact that parents can teach their children about endangered species, the red panda being one of many and just generally teach them about animals all together.
He seems pretty durable to me. He is well made and will serve his purpose well.
Overall, I highly recommend this soft toy to collecters, both young and old, or children to help educate them more.
Beautiful soft toy, reliable brand, recommended for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here be Dragons!, 4 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful calendar for any lover of dragons, fantasy or Anne Stokes' work.

The first page (September to December 2013) is beautifully designed to see you through the end of 2013, however, there isn't room for writing any important events or such as there is with the rest of the months. Though I dont care about this, some people do.

As with her previous calendars, each month is adorned with a beautiful piece of artwork and little paragraph to compliment the image. This year is dragon themed and is supposed to tell a sort of story as the months go by.
The room is perfect for writing important dates or entries. Not too big to take away from the beauty of Anne's work.
The picture quality is amazing. Compared to her previous calendars, the images were slightly pixelated but with this one, its in HD (its the best way to describe it) which only adds to the beauty.

All in all, a beautiful calendar that will see you through the year! For lovers of fantasy, dragons and Anne Stokes!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good protection but different colour, 18 May 2013
This mobile phone case offers good protection for your phone and has all the necessary access points needed to keep maximum control of the buttons and charger etc. Overall it is a good quality product that I am happy with.
The only reason this product recieves four stars is, as per the title review, the colour is more of a royal blue or electric blue than that the pictures suggest.


Zaion - Vol. 2 [DVD]
Zaion - Vol. 2 [DVD]

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anime, but could be better.., 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zaion - Vol. 2 [DVD] (DVD)
So the basis for this anime is that a virus has infected numerous humans, turning them into monsters and so the government has created a group of soldiers to fight back and destroy them before it becomes an epidemic. This DVD contains the final two episodes of the series.

I still feel this series should have been made into a longer series. In these two episodes, I feel the pace picks up and is a lot better than the first two episodes. While the characters still don't grow much, Ai and Yuuji's relationship definitely develops more. The action is better in these episodes as the situation becomes more out of control and the struggle between our characters draws to a close. The final scene between Ai and Yuuji is just beautiful and I felt this was just the right way to close the series.

The special features on this volume include an Interview with the director and SF setting director, an interview with the 3D director, an interview with the voice actress for Ai (Japanese) and an interview with the music director.
With this DVD release, a small booklet is also included with more artwork from the series and an interview with various, behind the scene members again. This booklet focuses more on the technical terms within the series rather than the characters like the first booklet. The cover is again reversible on the DVD.

Overall, I wouldn't say this is one of my favorite animes but it is worth a look as it is a great watch. I liked the idea for the ending and found it satisfying. Despite being short, this anime is worth the price and I will watch it again. I would recommend it. While it is short, it is sweet story of love in unexpected places hidden behind the action.
