5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking straightners, cracking price!!, 1 Feb. 2011
I recieved these today and i'm really chuffed with them. Their really easy to use, they heat up in seconds, their lightweight and they make doing your hair so much easier. I have surfer/skater style hair that sweeps to one side and i find that these straightners are ideal for doing my hair. Their a nice slimline design and due to the slim design it's really easy for me to do my hair. Also i've seen them retailing in shops for around £50, so considering i only paid [...] for them their an absolute bargin for the price. I would highly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic gore comedy.., 22 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Braindead [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
I came across a vhs copy of this film year's ago in my attic and as i don't own a video player anymore (who does thesedays) i decided to get it on dvd to relive the madness that is braindead.

I'm going to try and keep the review short but sweet. Essentially the story follows a a young man named lionel who lives at home with his domineering mother. To his mothers dismay lionel becomes friendly with a local girl name paquita who works in the village shop. Lionel and paquita then go on a date to the zoo where lionel's mother follows them and while spying on them from bushes she gets bitten by a sumatran rat-monkey. Basically half rat, half monkey.

The bite from the rat-monkey turns lionel's mother into a flesh hungry zombie. He tries to keep his mother sedated with veterinary anesthetic but it doesn't seem to work for long as his mother bites the nurse that comes to check on lionel's mother and subsequently turns her into a zombie. He tries to keep everything under control by locking his mother and the nurse in the basement. His mother escapes and chaos ensues.

Some of the most memorable scenes from the film is when lionel takes a zombie baby to the park (you'll see how thats created) and kicks it around, smacks it's head on things and chases it around the park, also there is a great scene in a graveyard where there is a kung fu priest who says 'i kick ass for the lord' and he does exactly that kicks ass and probably the most memorable scene from the film is towards the end where lionel aquires a lawn mower and goes nuts and kills everything in the most gore-tastic scene in the film.

So just buy this film and enjoy the over the top gore. It put's a lot of modern horror films to shame. You won't be dissappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Iron maiden album!!, 8 Sept. 2010
This album is just perfection. It's easily my favourite maiden album and it's not to hard to see why with classics like "Moonchild", "Infinite Dreams", "Can i play with madness" just to name a few of the many classics on this album.

I could listen to it over and over again, it's just a masterpiece and i can't fault it. Not much left to say really as whatever there is to say has already been said so just go out and buy this album right now without hesitation. Epic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!, 8 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Powerslave (Audio CD)
Rather ashamedly i've only recently become an iron maiden convert and thats not to say that i didn't like them it's just i'd only heard a couple of their songs in the past like the brillant "Can i play with madness" and "The number of the beast", so i decided to borrow a couple of albums from a mate and powerslave was the first one i played and i was absolutely blown away.

There isn't a single rubbish song on the album and to be honest i don't really have any favourite songs as their all my favourite and i love every song. This is such an awesome album and i'm really glad that i borrowed this album because it's introduced me to one of the greatest rock bands in the world.

A definate must have for any rock/metal fan.


Top Gear: The Challenges (BBC) [DVD]
Top Gear: The Challenges (BBC) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jeremy Clarkson
Offered by Bee-Entertained
Price: £2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!, 28 July 2010
This is topgear at its funniest. You get a nice collection of challenges which amounts to nearly 3 hours of classic topgear.

A couple of things i have noticed is that for example in the stretch limo challenge there is a chunk missing where you don't get to see jeremy, richard and james building their limo's which is a shame as i found the building process funny. Also the editing of the dvd is weird. Like for example you could be watching one challenge and then all of a sudden it will cut to the start of another challenge halfway through. It would have been better if they'd let the challenges play through from start to finish but i suppose i am just nit picking as the pro's very much out weigh the con's.

There's plenty of content on here to keep you entertained like turning a reliant robin into a space shuttle or one of my favourites making a homemade convertible people carrier.

Anyway don't let the little quibbles with the editing put you off or that a couple of the challenges have been shortened as they are just little things and most people probably won't notice. So buy this dvd, have some mates over and get beer and a takaway and prepare to laugh you ass off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and brutal all at once!, 5 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eden Lake [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this film earlier this year and to be honest it was a bit of a random buy as i'd never seen trailers for it and had no idea what it would be like but it's one of the best films i've bought.

It starts off where a young couple jenny and steve go out to the countryside to escape from the city and spend a couple of days at eden lake. Once there they set up camp and start to enjoy their picturesque surroundings. That is until a group of local chavs/thugs turn up and start to ruin their trip by playing that ridiculous nonsense they call music and just generally being yobs.

In my opinion this film is also very representative of what the youth of today are like and also paints a picture of what their parents are probably like aswell.

Anyway as the day wears on the chavs eventually go and everything seems to improve as they settle down for their first night at eden lake. Then the next day they notice that one of their bags is missing and it happened to contain car keys ect.

They then go to where they parked their car and surprise surprise it's gone. They get onto a dirt road and their car comes speeding into view with all the thugs inside. The thugs then speed off taunting the young couple and thats where things start to pick up. I will not spoil it by giving away anything else but take it from me this is a brilliant film.

For me the end of the film is surprising but very shocking as i did not expect it to end in the way it did. The ending is not like other cliche film endings where the only survivor manages to escape, reach a main road and flag down a passing truck driver or police car and thats what i like. It's different. I would highly recommend this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely awesome!, 1 July 2010
Being a massive fan of dirty sanchez this was a no brainer for me. I just had to buy it. Once i'd bought it i couldn't wait for it to arrive and hear that tell tale thud as this was pushed through my letterbox and landed on the floor.

As soon as it arrived i put it and i have never laughed so much in all my life. From pancho constantly getting picked on to dan joyce doing some of the sickest things you'll ever see, it's just a non stop rollercoaster of fun and games. As soon as you put it on you'll be rolling about on the floor laughing so much your head might explode. As well as containing all the main episodes it's also packed with hours and hours of extras like for example a round up of the top 10 scariest stunts, unseen and extended footage, enema art and so much more.

I am also a fan of jackass but when i watch it i only seem to laugh at certain stunts but with dirty sanchez i am uncontrollably laughing at everything from start to finish. Sometimes when i am on my own like just chilling in my bedroom or on a bus for example and my mind starts to wonder and i think about things, i find myself having a little giggle because i randomly think of things from dirty sanchez.

This is a must buy for fans of jackass and possibly the dudesons. You will not be dissapointed as the the 3 welshman and 1 warped southerner provide hours and hours of endless entertainment. Awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 30 Jun. 2010
This review is from: The Strangers [DVD] (DVD)
One of my favourite films.

It starts off where a young couple Kristen (Liv Tyler) and James (Scott Speedman) arrive home in the early hours of the morning after attending a friends wedding. They then get a knock on the door and when they answer they discover a girl they who james sends away.

James then goes out to get a pack of cigarettes leaving his partner in the house on her own where she gets even more shaken up by wierd knocks on the door only to discover theres no one there. When james arrives home kristen is hysterical with fear and thats when the fun starts.

I don't want to spoil what happens in the film so i won't explain the story anymore. Its doesn't have a lot of gore or blood in it but its filled with tension and suspense and keeps you hooked. What i like about this film also is that this could happen to anyone in real life and not just in a film. Also the fact that its loosely based on a true story makes it seem more real and thats what makes it a really scary film.

Great film.

5.0 out of 5 stars scary film!, 30 Jun. 2010
Despite the majority of the reviews about this film being negative, i found it to be a brilliant and scary film.

Its very rare that i watch a film that makes me jump but there were some genuine moments in this film where i did.
Apart from the all the scariness i also found the side story of the boy fighting his battle with cancer to be emotional and how he deals with his illness.

A great film that i would recommend to who wants to be scared.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!!, 5 Jun. 2010
This review is from: District 9 [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
What an amazing film. I liked the way it starts off in documentary style to give you the basic storyline and then it merges into a proper film. It also has some documentary style looking footage which actually looks real and what a shame it isn't.

The special effects are also awesome considering it wasn't a massive budget film, although the budget was decent and the alien weaponry is creative and downright brilliant and the effects these guns have when fired at humans is cool.

There are superb action scenes like when MNU agent Wikus van de merwe (Sharlto Copley) takes an alien or prawn as their known in the film to the MNU headquarters but my personal favourite action scene is when a robot in the film comes alive and agent Wikus van de merwe clambers inside and goes crazy. Chaos follows.

Overall one of my favourite films ever and i'd highly recommend this to all sci fi fans and even people who are not fans of sci fi. You will not be dissappointed. Bring on the sequel.
