5.0 out of 5 stars What are the critics watching, 16 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Lone Ranger [DVD] (DVD)
This was absolutely fantastic. I just can't understand all the negative publicity this got when it was at the cinema. That put me off and it's a real shame as it was genius, hilarious and totally entertaining. Sometimes I think it's best to ignore these arrogant critics and see it for yourself. I'm now kicking myself for not seeing it at the cinema. Totally loved this highly recommend :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly beautiful, 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Secondhand Rapture (Audio CD)
Doing my usual browse trying to find some new tunes when i stumbled upon this. A quick listen on Amazon and Youtube and I bought the whole album and haven't stopped listening to it. It is dark and utterly beautiful and i don't understand why I haven't heard of them before. Dark Doo Wop is simply stunning. If you're a fan of the darker side of pop then this will not disappoint. Can't wait to hear more from them :)

This is brilliant fun, really does look like a lens I even almost put it in my camera back :? But be careful if you're going to have a hot cup of tea or coffee in it, the mug gets extremely hot itself that is the only downside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic second season, 16 Mar 2013
Only just started watching Walking Dead and after the first season I went straight out and bought the second, and it just gets better. There are twists and turns and things happening you really thought wouldn't. Edge of your seat stuff, the actors are top draw and play all their individual roles to perfection. I've just watched the whole of the second season in three evening, thats 13 episodes, and now I have to wait for season 3 to come out on dvd booo. The only other series that has been this enjoyable for me is Game of Thrones. If you've never seen it, or have the firt and worry that the second series won't match up, then don't worry it certainly does in abundance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Little gem, 31 Jan 2013

This is a great little book with some rather surprising famous people in it. Basically a collection of fun images taken on nights out. Not many people properly document this type of life. The images are quite 'in your face' with his use of flash photography and could of maybe been a bit more creative but what you're left with is a quirky set if images that are great to flick through.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not art, 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shaven Sex Love (Hardcover)
Have to say but I wasn't impressed by this purchase. Not sure what I was expecting but this wasn't it. It really is basically porn turned black and white. Making something monochrome doesn't turn it into art I'm afraid. Books well made but hey who cares its the images we want and this one doesn't deliver. Rather disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a wasted opportunity, 29 Oct 2012
This review is from: Red Tails [DVD] (DVD)
Really looked forward to this, massive war film fan and an aviation photographer so bingo :) but this started bad and just didn't get any better. The dialogue is staged and false and soooo pretentious is just makes you feel sick watching it. The battle scenes are good but nothing compared to other films, take Flags of out fathers, there are some cracking arial scenes in that which make you feel as if you're there flying the plane. Even Memphis Belle made in 1991 was more realistic. There is way too much laughing and joking about for a war film, even if these guys were that chilled it just doesn't ring true. I think the director needs to stop worrying about special effects and start worrying about the script. This is historically and great story that needs to be told and shared, but this is a missed opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 28 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been waiting for a book of this quality for years. Perfect large size, can't stand some of these pocket size photo books, what's the point I want to 'SEE THE PICTURES' and with this you do. There are over 400 pages of images and all are excellent covering a wide range within this genre. As well as the photos there is a little bio on each photographer, who they are, why they shoot and what they use. Brilliant.

1.0 out of 5 stars WHY?, 13 July 2012
This review is from: Prometheus [DVD] (DVD)
Well, saw it at the cinema on the opening night and was left in shock at just how bad this movie was. But I thought later that maybe it was the hype that had let it down for me, so without thinking I decided to buy the DVD and take my time with it, as I so wanted to like this film.

Well, I really should of learnt my lesson and left it alone. Sheesh, how on earth did this film make it past the script, then the cutting room floor. The thing should of just been burned and started again.

The acting was so bad I think I could of done better, your left not caring about any of the characters, it's so PC I could laugh, and as for the plot, well I just want to scream at the amount of holes in it. Spoiler alert: For a start, there is one scene where an alien head is bought back to life, this is the most hilarious scene I've seen in a sci fi flick for nearly 20 years, yes I am that old. Then there is the case of members of the crew stranded in a cave on an alien world, and the crew back at the ship couldn't care less other than having sex? really? Come on.

What makes a good sci fi is it's sense of believability, yes it's make belief and fantasy, but there are still humans involved. So don't even get me started the the alien extraction scene, ahhhhhhhh. You can't do that move if you've just been sliced open and crudely stapled back together. It's not even gruesome, it's just completely stupid.

Far from the DVD making me find some form of love for this film it's actually mad me hate it even more. It is visually stunning as you'd expect, but to be honest, I'd prefer terrible graphics and a proper story to this rubbish.

Rant over, stay away if you're a fan of true sci fi.
