5.0 out of 5 stars R n B at its very best, 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snapshot (Audio CD)
This album is a corker gotta say. I went to see these boys, and yes "boys", which nis hard to believe considering how advanced they sound and also tight they perform live..! if you like Blue Collar Jane then dont hesitate in investing in thus cd you will love it.
I am a huge fan of eric clapton, in his Bluesbreakers era and this album is up there with it in my opinion. These lads should be in it for the long haul at this rate.
The Strypes....well I for one am glad they came along, so keep it up boys :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Stories....., 1 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Where can one begin when reviewing this Trilogy of stories. I thought I would never read anything as good the LOTR Trilogy, but obviously I was mistaken.
The first book in the series "Northern Lights", is fantastic. The Trilogy deals with many themes; parallel worlds and religion in ways you couldn't begin to explain.
The main character, Lyra is pulled along throughout the whole Trilogy. Her destiny is written for her already, but you just have to carry on reading to see if it all happens.
It's just a great read all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars good tennis game, 1 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Smash Court Tennis 2 is a very good tennis game. We all know it contains many great characters, both men and women.
Safin and the Williams Sisters are there which was pleasing to see. There movements are also good, which is crucial to the game.
Gameplay wise, I like it a lot. It's unlike many others. If you time the ball wrong you can hit it long, or wide. Which is correct just like the game itself.
Playing a full career is also made more interesting. You can choose to play just key points of a match, and this will determine the outcome. Its quicker and more exciting I thought.
Multiplayer games are classics. Especially doubles. Whether its men or women. I mean this is what the games meant for!
Excellent tennis game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars: Battlefront, 1 Oct 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game takes awhile to grow on you maybe. But as soon as I got into a battle and Darth Vader was there along side my troops, I was hooked!
There are other main characters who make appearances, so i won't spoil it. The graphics are great I thought, but with the dramatic "Imperial March" behind you you'll just wanna stomp the Ewoks and the rebellion into the ground.
The battles on the Hoth planet, i.e At-At's etc are impressive. And if you want just select the "Instant Action" feature and dive straight in.
You can pinch the enemies vehicles which I thought was good.
Overall pretty decent game for this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book for people with T.L.E, 27 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent book for those who wish to learn more about Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. The book is not heavy on doctors terms or anything like that, so there's no need to be put off by that. It uses real life cases to explain everything, and keep the reader interested and informed at the same time.
Well written for this kind of book.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book, 27 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beautiful sketches throughout the whole book. Especially the ones of Minas Tirith. Exquisite detail of the whole city from angles. You could sit for ages and just stare at each picture.
I also find the digital paintings in this book excellent as well.
It just makes you realise how important these artists and designers are to a film; with drawings of props, swords, costumes, chairs etc.
With each sketch, painting, design, or concept comes detailed analyses and explanations by the artists themselves. Brilliant.
An excellent addition to any LOTR fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars great game, 27 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Athens 2004 (Video Game)
Athens 2004 is a good game. Good as it's not just all button bashing (well not all). But the other sports, such as swimming, need timing pulled off for you to win. (and gee is Butterfly tough!). Pretty smooth graphics, and nice crowd effects make it fun.
Of course it's better when playing against mates, but Decathlon is great, and also you can customise events as well; or choose to run in the Athletics!
All your records get saved, and you'll want to beat them again.
Best track and field game on console yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King of Rock 'n' Roll at his very best, 27 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elvis has never looked or performed better in my opinion than in the 68' Comeback Special. If you loved the sit down performances (my fave parts), then you're in for a treat, the first disc both on show, and they are great!!
You are not going to see the King in a better mood than this. He laughs, jokes through the songs, plays about with the lyrics.
There is just so much on here, and when you get to DISC 3, believe me when they say it's all on there, they mean it. All the incompleted takes, stops and starts. Just a fantastic package.
5 stars easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars great sequel... not as blood thirsty, 25 Sep 2004
If you like the first movie well obviously you'll want to see what happened. Well you won't be disappointed in my opinion. It's quite different from the first Kill Bill, but that's not a bad thing, in many many ways it's better.
One chapter in particular, I won't spoil it for you, is very claustrophobic but excellent viewing nonetheless.
The fight scene vs Elle is great. Just a nasty, dirty bitchy fight, with a fantastic end to it. The score is very Westernised this time around, (Ennio Morricone style).
The scenes with her master Pei Mei reminded me of the many Japanese Kung Fu movies I watched as a kid, mainly bad quality ones.
I thought QT rounded it up well. Excellent film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in Time....., 25 Sep 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a happy chappy when I heard these were finally arriving on DVD. Michael J Fox was great in these. Funny throughout the whole trilogy, and so was Lloyd as the Doc, the wild haired scientist.
Brilliant, on the edge of your seat, entertainment. What more can you ask more?
