5.0 out of 5 stars An essential accessorie for you PS2, 5 Mar. 2007
This is a well working, good coloured card. It is the right size to fit in the memory card holders provided in the game cases. It might not be big enough because i have deleted data ,even though it hasn't been full. When you scroll about in the memory card menu it is easy and obvious to distingiuish game saves etc. Maybe not big enough but i cannot speak about that because i have deleted data at inappropriate time, that is my only bad comment, apart from that it is great! 9.5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective brain training but easy, 5 Mar. 2007
This game is great fun and does train your brain to think better effectively. Unfortunately it is incredibley easy. I can imporove in a short spell and get very high marks! You can pick it up and get better in all the areas by memorizing all of the questions! However there are a wide range of questions, some of the questions seem to be asked more often than others! Some of the types of questions are very fun but they are all very easy. A very fun game though and very addictive! 8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars A-haar, a great film captain!, 26 Feb. 2007
This is a fantastic film. Absoultely amazing effects and an awesome storyline. All of the extra features are fine and very good but i would just stick to the film because that is the best part. Not a waste of money for the extras but they aren't exactly a great use of time! Not taking anything away from the film. Technicly and effect-wise one of the best around! 9/10!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's what i call great music!, 25 Feb. 2007
Another great compilation from the 'NOW' team. This CD has all the latest hits on plus some great dance songs. It is an improvment on Now 64, however there are a few songs that just never seemto hit my CD player. Both of the CD's have great songs, my favourites are:-

'Ridin', 'America', 'LDN', 'Yeah Yeah', 'Love don't let me go' and 'Put you hands up for Detroite'!

There is a great mix of songs, and when you listen to it you think 'Why didn't i buy some of these songs as singles?!' A great buy and another fantastic 'NOW' CD, 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Best handheld yet, BY FAR!!, 25 Feb. 2007
The sony PSP is such a step up from previous handheld consoles. The Nintendo DS had the lovely touch screen but didn't have the graphics and not at all the range of games. At most times the PSP has a range of graphics similar to the PS2, on Fifa 07 i personally think the graphics are better.

The PSP looks great, especially in black! The white one looks a little cheap! The range of games are great and the graphics can't be faulted. Most people have said that they dislike using the analog stick, so far i have had no problems and have found it easy to use. The screen can get a little dirty at times but the dirt can easily be wiped off with a cloth.

If you buy a PSP you should buy a 512mb or a 1gb memory card. It is all you need as we are creating tiny tiny MP3 players for storing music, however, the PSP stores music files and a 512mb card lets store plenty of songs. On the PSP you can also store plenty of photoes and movies. You can watch movies on it and also go on the internet with wireless connectivety. The loading times are good.

If you buy a PSP you will also need a solid case. Back to the actual console. It is not a next-gen console but it is a handheld. Remember the previous handhelds were GBA's. Remember what the graphics on those used to be like? Rubbish! This is so much better. The PSP is an apsolute essencial, buy it now + accessories! 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great from Aardman!, 24 Feb. 2007
Ha ha! I don't really think i got to listen to much of this film because i seemed to be laughing so much during it. Like many Aardman there are many subtle things added in that don't stand out but when you notice them they are extremely funny. That is why you should buy it on DVD, so that you can watch it more than once and notice these little details. There are some fantasticly thought out lines that will keep any age group entertained! The story line is great, a village bonkers about a vegetable growing cmpetition. The villager's preperations are ruined though by a Ware rabbit so 'Anti-pesto', Wallace and Grommit's vegetable guarding buisness are called to investigate. I won't explain any more as you will enjoy it greatly if you watch it. 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic!, 24 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Chicken Run [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
I got this DVD for Christmas even though i have seen this film umpteen number of times. With most films i would hate it if i got it after watching it loads but no, it is very difficult to get bored of this film. There are funny little bits that sometimes you miss and then next time you will spot them and think 'Genious!' This film is now widely regarded as a classic and so it should be! It is great fun for all ages! The animation is fantastic, when you see films using animation this well you think what is the point in films using special effects! The models are fantastic and the voicing is apsolutely second to none! If you haven't seen this film either you're just born or WHAT PLANET HAVE YOU BEEN ON?!! The ending maybe isn't for vegetarians! A must see for all ages 9/10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what i was expecting!, 24 Feb. 2007
This review is from: These Streets (Audio CD)
When i first heard Paulo Nutini it was his single 'Jenny don't be hastey'. I thought oh, it will be a good album but all the songs will feel like supporting songs. How wrong could i have been. This album does not sound like a debut album at all. In fact it sounds far from a debut one. This is becaues the albums is filled with catchy songs that you can't help but sing along to! You listen along and realise that this is an album of meanful singing but not very fast songs. Later, you come across the fantastic song 'New shoes' and realise that Paulo Nutini doesn't just sing for Mums and can actually sing faster than his normal speed! All of the songs are very different, some ofmy favourites are 'New shoes', 'these streets', 'Jenny don't be hastey' and 'Last request'. These are only some of the songs and no, i am not avoiding any i just decided to mension these ones. All of the songs on here makes you want to listen to them more than once. All of the songs are foot tappers but only 'New shoes' will wake you up in the morning as the songs are gentle and quite slow. Pauli Nutini is a good version of James Blunt. Don't be put off by me saying that though! 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars They're under the Iron sea, i'm in heaven listening to this!, 24 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Under the Iron Sea (Audio CD)
Wow! Ibought their first album 'Hopes and fears' and thought that it was brilliant. Also i never thought they would be able to improve on it! But they have! This CD is surely in the top 10 of 2006! It has confident tunes all the way through with great melody and lyrics.

The best songs are:-

'Nothing in my way', 'Crystal ball' (it has a great video aswell!), 'Leavng so soon', 'Bad dream' and 'Is it any wonder'

There are no songs what so ever on this album that lets it down, an all round AND individually sound CD. Definately get whatever your tastes in music! 11/10!!

5.0 out of 5 stars More on this than meets the eye!, 24 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Loose (Audio CD)
This is a great album. Yes, it is great because there are lots of well known, catchy songs but it's also great because more than just that. There are songs that only people who own this disc have ever listened to. Most of these are apsolute little gems!

From 'Maneater' to 'Promiscuos' to 'All good things (must come to an end)' to 'Afraid' there is everything you could ever ask for on an album. What's more is there are some great supporting artists included on this CD. Two of the more well known ones are Timbaland and Justin Timberlake.

The undiscovered gems are 'Say it right', 'No hay Igual' and 'Glow'. The main factor why you should buy this is that unlike most albums out nowadays it isn't an album with two great songs and nine other rubbish ones. A great buy, 9/10
