5.0 out of 5 stars let the right one in, 14 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
eerie. a good sign after watching a vampire film is whether or not you come away from it thinking that maybe vampires do actually exist and how they would survive or integrate into contemporary society. this is also a good revenge story with the little boy who's bullied at school receiving support from the darkside. i learned some new things about vamps as well...for example they can't enter someone's house without being invited in. its also a love story between a couple of young teenagers - although as you'll learn, this particular bloodsucker's been a young teenager for sometime. the fact that its a swedish film helps make the story more believable because its a little bit alien. although i'm sure it was popular over there too. you get the impression this vampire has live for maybe hundreds of years enslaving human beings for its survival. so on the face of it the young boy is in love and maybe feels he can't survive without the vampire..which confusingly refers to itself as his creation but the flip-side is the boy's life will play out in service to his new master becoming the guy who goes out to get the blood so it doesn't have to kill people itself. a true parasitical existence and possibly an unwitting allegory for human relationships of the slightly unbalanced kind. a warning, perhaps, that if you identify with this particular love story - check your partner's not a vampire or that you're not a vampire yourself.

enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars the runners' bible, 3 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Lore of Running (Paperback)
a comprehensive guide to running with proper scientific data to back up all his ideas, tim noakes' book is a runners' bible. you can refer to it on a dailly basis continually tweaking and improving your running or read it cover to cover taking notes on the way - like you're studying a course or something. each chapter will give you a new perspective with which to view the sport, keeping you interested and engaged in your running schedule. highly recommended for amateurs and professionals alike, whether its a first 10k or a 100 mile ultra there will always be something you can learn from "lore of running".

5.0 out of 5 stars wave forms and spliced beats, 12 Feb. 2009
This review is from: CREATURE COMFORTS (Audio CD)
this is weird music....but very cool. lots of blips and strange noises with a few beats thrown in. at one point in the record i thought i was having an audio malfunction. i own two black dice albums now and highly recommend them both. its inventive stuff that might be hard to dance to. however those of you with an artistic bent or enthusiasm for the avant-garde explorations of german kosmiche experimenters "faust" for example will appreciate this modern, digital embodiment of the genre.
