5.0 out of 5 stars First class stand up, 7 Nov. 2011
What a superb comedian! He has a fresh and witty take on life and puts himself down with such style you can tell that here is a man who's taken a lot of stick in his life but has learned to turn the tables by doing it so much better. He's very funny and you can clearly see that he's a great actor as well Some great one liners - a very funny man.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frankie's dark ways are back, 7 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Work! Consume! Die! (Hardcover)
So he's not exactly Mr. Compassion, but he is very funny. Frankie is as dark, cynical and sly as any fan of his could wish. I'm knocking off a star because he spends a long time laying into things he hates without any jokes, but not to worry. It's still funny and a long list of things to be reviled.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class mob movie, 6 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Kill The Irishman [DVD] (DVD)
The story of Danny Greene and the way he defied the mob is fascinating. It has some fine scenes and the pace is good. This isn't a dull DVD! This film is entertaining and gripping, with great performances across the board. It has some cracking scenes and the cast do admirably, even Vinnie Jones.

This is a superb gangster movie, and well worth seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guess where you should read this?, 6 Nov. 2011
This review is from: How to Poo at Work (Paperback)
While it's been many years since I've been an office worker, I remember that the calm and peace of a good toilet break is essential. Add this entertaining volume to your loo library, as it will surely liven up the shirk ethic of many office people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal testimony of a guitar man, 6 Nov. 2011
This is an inspiring book about one man's journey through life carried through by his love of music. What he has to say about the guitar, and what it means to him, is personal and moving. As a guitarist, I feel it made me look at my instrument in a better way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow rural vampire road movie, 5 Nov. 2011
This is a slow moving but involving vampire movie, with survival overtones reminiscent of The Road. It doesn't deserve its high praise but it is worth watching. The tone is bleak and it's not a lot of fun, but I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty old school cop flick, 5 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Blitz [DVD] (DVD)
A cop killer taunting the police doesn't sound new, but this tense and bloody film plays a new take on the material and it works well.

There are 3 great leads - Statham does a different take on his usual screen role, which fits the movie well. Paddy Considine does a powerful supporting turn and the killer is convincing - menacing and unbalanced.

Taunt, violent and gripping, this is an unusual but successful cop thriller.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of cinema's best written screenplays, 1 Nov. 2011
This taut and masterful screenplay is exactly how films should be written. It is tense and unfolds perfectly. Towne's ear for dialogue and his way of unravelling the story is exemplary.

His original script was 180 pages, so I would have liked to see some reference to the expurgated material, but otherwise this is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and revelatory, 1 Nov. 2011
Jeanette Winterson's prose is a glorious place to let the mind bathe, and her insights into the difficulties of life naturally stem from her own troubled early life. Her struggles are elevated by an insight into what forges humanity and the bizarre strands of observation she makes are delightful and elegant.

It's delightful to see her work soaring once more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Subatomic splendour, 31 Oct. 2011
I never really expected much from particles, or my understanding of them. Thankfully, this concise and clear book shows just how easy it is to make a universe using only some basic ingredients, a whisk and a few mumbled pronouncements on the weirdness of things.

Some will say the subject is entered into in far too fleeting a fashion, but I say it's all "relative." Ho ho.
