Northmen (A Viking Saga) [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]
Northmen (A Viking Saga) [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]
Price: £8.49

4.0 out of 5 stars International Northmen - the Movie, 25 Feb. 2015
OK: this is the Movie review. Despite it not being available on Amazon but strangley the soundtrack is...

Sean Bean is absent! can you believe it, at last a sword & sandal film where he doesnt turn up and do his strangely unique 'Yerkshoire' screen accent.

Austrian writers, Swiss Holywood producer, Australian martial arts monk, English language, filmed in S. Africa & Germany, rest of cast from all over the place - perhaps some vikings amongst them (aparently one growls in a viking metal band). Oh and its supposed to be set in Scotland - but isn't - why is that? theres enough of Scotland where it could have been filmed. Usual plot where the goodies run, and the baddies never seem to properly catch them.

Apart from that, its a great midweek movie - hence the 4 stars. Worth a watch !

3.0 out of 5 stars A lemon of a book., 23 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had great hopes especially after catching snippetts on the radio, but never got round to finishing the book. Kind of meandered along, snippets of interest here and there so its a book you can duck in and out of, but quite frankly the author isnt that interesting & it's not that well written. Shame really 'cos the amount of detailed research is astonishing.

If you have plenty of time on your hands and fancy a 'ladies who lunch' book; then dive in and chatter about it afterwards at the organic cafe over an earls grey tea. Perhaps I'm wrong & its a masterpiece as others seem to think?

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh....., 23 Feb. 2015
Says a lot when the cover of the DVD is nothing to do with the contents! even the guys releasing the movie realise that it is so boring that nobody is going to buy it unless the cover is faked.

Read the other reviews - they just about sum it up. Note that all the US military males in this movie have the same hair style - kind of sticky-up mullet. The higher the rank, the higher the bouffant.

ps: some swearing, no nudity... so thats ok then. Oh and some people including children get blown to pieces.

1.0 out of 5 stars POINTLESS PRODUCT, 22 Feb. 2015
Pointless product!

If your product is cooked to the correct temperature for the correct time - as measured by your probe - any bacteria are killed by the temperature! so this product is a total waste of money.

You could dip your probe in pure salmonella culture, stick it in a chicken, and if that chicken is above 75deg C for 10 mins, the bacteria are killed in anyway. Doesnt matter if you have some fancy wipes or not, its the temperature / time that matters.

Stupid, stupid people that buy these wipes. What is more of concern is they dont understand the basics behind food preparation,

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 22 Feb. 2015
Ok, it's confusing but a classic paperback sci-fi yarn. And this is the problem, instead of being absorbed and led along by the story, you get bored and try to work out what is going on (and yes - you are right first time) - which spoils the experience. Great filming / wardrobe etc, commendable lack of holywood explosions, dull script, sadly another 'meh' film, not awful but certainly not good. Bruce Willis does the same in 'loopers' but with more bucks so more bangs. Possibly a waste of a rainy wednesday evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good movie., 13 Feb. 2015
This is a CHARACTER DRIVEN film - no car chases, explosions or things going bang. Plot is kinda Macbeth - although its set in the near future it could have been cast during the American great depression (mid-west dustbowl) or even during the Irish potato famine. Very convincing and worth a watch - some how reminds me of Picnic at Hanging rock, or a Tarentino film without the mass slaughter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its crap, but OK for a tuesday night., 10 Feb. 2015
To be honest the 1 star reviews are pretty much correct - and yes the boom microphone in view somewhere around the russian car scam is a gem - as is the sun ((or moon?)) inexpertly photo-shopped out of the 'night' scenes' but visible as a pixelated grey blur.

After a few months the USA captives are remarkably sprightly, full of get-up-and-go, uniforms still clean.

Seems the Islamist executioner... has aquired a Kukri knife, only used by the Ghurkas half a world away. But hey ho, this is a movie.

Our hero walks across a frozen lake into Afghanistan.... and there are bootprints in the snow. Fortunately he does not notice them. Cos that would imply that he has shot this scene a couple of times already.

This is SUCH LAZY , SHODDY, FILMMAKING.

For all that, its a watchable film. Hence 3 stars. Better than some of the poo that Hollywood is churning out about Afghanistan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoot-em-up / wet dream for walts., 9 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Act of Valour [DVD] (2012) (DVD)
Filmed in the style of a computer game: Soldiers rush into room armed to the teeth, shoot all the baddies, reload, repeat. Naturally being SEALS they can breath through their ears and never miss a sngle shot - oh, and they are the best of chums cos they are SEALS - hoo yah!. A single SEAL platoon kill hundreds of enemy for only one loss themselves (and that was his own fault really)

Acting is WOODEN. Script is a mash-up of all the engagements the US special forces have ever done, but just a single platoon instead of the usual USA overkill tactic of sending in the majority of the marine corp.

Somehow all this killing is apparently an 'act of valour'. More like wish fulfillment, toys for boys. If you want to watch a decent war film, try 'das boot' or 'come and see' or '9th company' or if you are determined to get holywood then 'black hawk down'
