4.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Eye Saw, 18 Aug. 2007
Say what you want about the control's layout - yes it is a tad awkward - but this controller is still a impressive bit of craftsmanship. From the blood splatter, to the 'start' button actually being assigned to a rip-cord mechanism, this is a toy for any fan of the Resident Evil games or the horror genre in general. The design is so devilishly impressive, that it even comes in its own display case for you to show it off in its full glory (though I wouldn't recommend using it as a centre piece for the kitchen table, unless you truly are the die hard horror fan... in that case knock yourself out).

It's unlikely that this would replace anyone's standard PS2 controller, but at least it'll make for a nifty novelty item and a pretty cool display piece. So if you're an enthusiastic horror fan... get it now!

P.S. I was also surprised to find that this controller is compatible with PCs too (via a bonus USB cable included), so make note that this isn't exclusive only to PS2 owners.

4.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece!... in a nicer box, 13 Jan. 2005
Here it is. The cleverest film this century has to offer so far, has made it's way onto Special Edition DVD. Though the movie itself is worth five stars alone, I found that the special features surprisingly let it down.
Written and directed by the critically acclaimed Christopher Nolan (The Following, Batman Begins), while including talent such as Guy Pearce and Joe Pantoliano, this is by far the most inventive film in years. Starting with a horrific yet beautiful scene where Leonard (Pearce) kills a man in cold blood, the film begins to track events that took place before the incident. We soon discover that his actions were fuelled by the revenge for his dead wife, while a rare disorder means he is unable to keep new memories. Nolan manages to put us in Leonard's shoes by shuffling the scenes in reverse order, meaning that we too are unaware of the previous events that took place. To remind himself where he is, and what he is doing, Leonard constantly makes notes so he can carry on tracking down his wife's killer. The film quickly becomes sort of a 'why dunnit' than a 'who dunnit' by effectively taking us back through time to the story's origin. Even while having Leonard's various messages to work from, the film still manages to pull off a few suprises, ending with a truly unexpected final twist.
Apart from the addition of the director's commentary, I was actually quite disappointed with the special features in this edition. Don't be fooled by the idea that the extra two discs are full of new goodies. Because to be honest... they're not. There's about one or two more documentaries than the original edition, and an additional option where you can view the screenplay while watching the film, (very useful for budding filmmakers!). But this is hardly enough extras to fill TWO WHOLE DISKS! Considering only big-budget epics (such as 'Lord of the Rings') have enough extra features to manage this. However you may enjoy the hidden 'Easter Egg' where you can view the whole film in chronological order. Even though this feature was also included in previous editions.
I very much recommend you getting this if you haven't already. If you already own an older version however, I would advise you not to bother buying the Special Edition just for one or two extra features.
