This review is from: Rush [DVD] (DVD)
I cannot understand why this film is rated well granted Ron howards a good director and the actors here are good but I was expecting something high octane and electric like days of thunder what i got was a mushy character biopic type film in which I struggled to stay awake.

Bought this to replace my B2710 (which hasn't really broken but the volume control cover had come off plus i lost the earphones so I used that as an excuse to buy a new phone) which I had for probably 4 or 5 years and was probably the longest I had ever had a phone and it still works and will be kept in the spares draw. Seeing as I was so happy with the b2710 I decided to go for a similar phone and the b2100 fitted the bill. Its slightly smaller than my old phone but has all the benefits such as a being robust, has a handy torch (invaluable), a handy camera, fm radio with earphones (good sound quality) and has a good battery life. This phones graphics on screen are a bit basic but they make it easy to use without overcomplicating things. The only downside I can think of with this one is that because it is a bit smaller the buttons especially the cursor buttons are a bit small and fiddly so if you have big fingers you could have problems. Hopefully this phone will give me a good number of years service as well. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST game ever, 2 Jun 2014
This review is from: Far Cry 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Its a good game and I think you will enjoy it. Its better than the previous game and most open world games. There's quite a big element of fear in this game which i've only realised since finishing it over a year ago now. Its a bit like the film 'the beach' (only better) but in a game form and a lot more weaponary and bad guys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but too long, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although there is the danger of some people perceiving this as dull it deals with some pretty weighty issues regarding life, death, social structures of human communities, moralities and psychology. It also answers a lot of questions as to how the hell the first world in the book wool came about and then throws up more and wanting you to find out how it all ends in the third. I have to say though that although this book is good and the two or so stories involved are gripping the author explains details sometimes too much. That said it is good to have the world set out for you, what with it being a complex one. Also the story line involving mission and co seems like filler and i found the story of silo 17 much more compelling. Can't wait to read the third! :)

Ian mcshane as one of the main stars is a blast and its great to see a brit in such an american setting. The show itself is more than its western setting it deals with the concept of civilisation even though you may not realise this. Be warned however that you may want subtitles for when ian mcshane speaks because the way he speaks is almost shakespearean. Like others have said the show seems to have been cut short and wrapped up at the end it could have done with a fourth series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly designed, 24 Feb 2014
I've had this clock for a week now buying it after not getting on with an acctim clock i recently bought. I actually cannot fault this clock. Here is why. 1) it has battery and mains and if the mains fail the batteries take over. 2) The optional projection deals with problem of some people wanting to be able to see the time in the dark but without the bright glare from the screen lighting up the room. 3) the snooze time at 8 minutes is fine 4) the alarm is a crescendo one and keeps going until you turn it off. 5) the time is radio controlled. 6) the clock is also nice and compact and has the day displayed and two alarms also the snooze button or alarm going off lights up the screen for a few seconds. In short: it will always tell the right time, allow you to sleep well and wake you up properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very good except for ONE thing!, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a shame to give this great little product a low rating but it deserves it because what i'm talking about has to be right with an alarm clock. I'm talking about the snooze time its only 5 minutes and cannot be altered. I've tried living with it but its too annoying, you press the snooze to turn off the alarm off and you go back to sleep for a bit ( a snooze) and then bam the alarm goes straight back off in no time making the snooze unenjoyable and the whole waking up experience annoying. Also the alarm stops ringing after one minute and isn't overly loud. And after 5 alarms it won't go off again. So really this alarm clock fails big time on the most important thing the alarm! Possibly fine if you've a light sleeper and are bright and breezy in the morning otherwise you'll need something with a better suited alarm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally something good for MEN from the bbc, 16 Dec 2013
Its a shame the bbc are dropping this I think the series is good because it covers a wide range of interesting subject areas whilst keeping a degree of continuity throughout the series. I love the historic setting and atmosphere throughout, I think this could have run and run i'm not sure why the bbc are stopping this, its the only drama show from them i've ever watched and even rivals some hbo shows from the states.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as i'd hoped, 14 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Like someone else said its not as big as stated its actually 1cm smaller in each dimension so 33cm wide 48.5cm long and 8cm high. The reason i'm reviewing this is because this is about the only dish drainer that i've found that has a cutlery holder at the front where you lie the cutlery down rather than knives and forks standing upright. I don't like standing them upright because they often get knocked while putting dishes in and its just generally annoying. Unfortunately the plate rack part doesn't work very well though, you put the plates in and they don't lie back but lie forward making putting the next plate i less easy. So in all a bit dissapointed and i've gone back to the one i bought at tesco which is bigger and better quality.
