5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT Authentic Drama, Visually stunning!, 24 April 2014
This review is from: Jamaica Inn [DVD] (DVD)
Personally i am getting very tired of all the complaints about the dialogue. I think people are forgetting the actors were trained for several months in old cornish dialect. they were meant to speak this way, its authentic on every single level. they clearly arn't going to be speaking the queens perfect english!, not smugglers, not cornish, not in 1821!. to me it was perfect. i think its everyone's unnecessary complaining that is spoiling a brilliant historically accurate show! if people have problems turn up the volume or put on the subtitles. theres no need to bash the hell out of this amazing program.

WHERE is the Blu Ray for this? I must say, i want a blu ray version, the visual stunning direction deserves a HD Blu ray release not just a digital download version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, SheDaisy's BEST album, 6 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Knock on the Sky (Audio CD)
SheDaisy's third album is probably my personal favourite of theirs, All the songs are very catchy and the album included several memorable singles like the fiesty song "Get Over Yourself" and the beautiful ballad "Mine All Mine". Unfortunatly the album was a commercial flop, which i can't understand at all. Maybe becaouse it was deemed "too pop". even so this album is amazing! you must hear this one! :) SheDaisy's favourite on the album was the powerful ballad "I Wish I Were The Rain".

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and Fasinating book, 3 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Mist over Pendle (Hardcover)
im 25 and this is the second proper novel i have really got into. Living in Nelson i get a beautiful view of Pendle Hill and often see the famous mist topping the hill. so i wanted to read the book so much. references to all the places i visit often feature in the book. I love the charector of Margery. she is funny and very intelegent. I see Miles being quite atractive, and he is another charector i have come to like alot. Grace to. Oh and Little Jennet. she is funny and how she loves her apple tarts.
This book is one you wont wanna put down. i do a chapter every night. and im nearly finished. YOU must read this. Its a facinating twist on the real events about the pendle witches

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST GHOST STORIES..PATTY DUKE IS EXCELLENT!, 5 Dec. 2005
I first saw GRAVE SECRETS about 10 years ago and recently bought the
DVD here in the UK. I myself am a paranormal investigator and found
this movie to be one of the best movies based on a factual ghost story
I've ever seen, Yes it is a TV Movie, So if you are expecting Special
effects galore and Hollywood-ised horror then you wont get it here.
This is one of the most realistic movies based on ghosts and is mostly
like how it really is. The story is based on actual events "the legacy
of hilltop drive" and stars the amazing actress "Patty Duke" who is
well known for all her excellent "based on real events" TV Movies.
This movie has an excellent story, and what makes it even more gripping
and interesting is that its based on real events that happened to the
whole neighbourhood at hilltop drive. Every house hold had a ghost and
eventually the whole neighbourhood was empty as everyone eventually
moved away as they could no longer take living with the ghosts. It is
fact that the real Hill top drive is now a abandoned neighbourhood and
no one lives there.
I highly recommend this movie to serious Patty Duke fans, and people
who like a good ghost movie that doesn't have all the scary factor
thrills that come from Hollywood movies. Although the movie IS SCARY,
it just doesn't need special effects to make it scary!

5.0 out of 5 stars One fans Review... Come and Read It, 21 Nov. 2005
1. So Good - 5/5 This was the second single, excellent futuristic sounding techno dance track that is really catchy!
2. I Said Never Again (But Here We Are)- 4/5 Third single, really attitude packed track with a really catchy chorus. The video is also pretty fab set in the Bad Girls prison! "I told you never to play my new guitar.."
3. Crazy Boys - 4/5 Excellent upbeat track thats dancey and chilled out at the same time. Its yet again another catchy number simular to So Good.
4. I Will Be There - 5/5 I once read someones review that it sounded like "I Believe In You", Kylie's hit song. And they where right, This has got to be the BEST track on the album for me. its amazing. its very Autherial and very Atmospheric, the words to the song are beautiful, and the haunting beat gives you goosebumps. (in a good way!)
5. Negotiate With Love - 5/5 The first single if you dont count "Some Girls" which originally came the from Funky Dory album. This song is pure rachel its fantastic. the vocals are amazing how she changes the tone in her voice and makes it higher and higher. also the music is quite 50's style simular to a previous song "blue afternoon" which was a fans favourite from the first album.
6. It's All About Me 4/5 - Really excellent catchy song, thats got another quite grown up feel to it.
7. Secret Garden 4/5 - This is quite a sunsual and chilled out track with a catchy chorus and its pretty upbeat to. I love this song. very unique unlike any other on the album.
8. Nothing Good About This Goodbye 5/5 - Originally going to be single No4 this is a really grown up track with a very catchy chorus. And a great beat. its alittle like previous fan favourite "Breathe in, Breathe Out".
9. Some Girls - 4/5 Everyone knows this track. originally from the Funky Dory (Re-Release) album it was released for Sports Relief last year, and was one of rachels biggest hits.
10. Je M'Apelle 4/5 - Rachel was quotted as saying this song is about a "French Hooker". LOL its a good song even though the lyrics are suposedly so racey. Although i cant really tell to be honest.
11. Funny How 5/5 - This song is very upbeat and catchy. It will have you danceing to it if you know whats good for you!
12. Every Little Thing - 4/5 Brilliant track thats really catchy and upbeat.
13. Dumb Dumb - 4/5 This song is suposed to be about a famous dumb blonde, I wonder who that could be? A few names come to light..

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Look at Life after Death..., 16 Nov. 2005
This is probably the BEST movie representation of Life after Death. Another great movie with a fantastic twist at the end. This is one of the very best ghost films of all time.
Fantastic acting from the brilliant Nicole Kidman and the child actors in the movie.
If you havnt seen The Others and like a good ghost movie then this is the ULTIMATE GHOST MOVIE! its up there with the Original "The Haunting" (1963) A True classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its so so..., 16 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Phone Booth [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
What surprised me so much about this movie is that its only about 1 hour 5 minutes or so long. But then again.. does that surprise me?... well no... i mean it is filmed totally in a phone box (booth) (tardis) whatever!. I mean you can only do so much while stuck in one.
I remember when my mum saw it she said the funniest thing.. she fell to sleep half during the movie and she woke up later and he was still in the phone box. it sounds quite funny, although this is what the films about. a guy in a phone box being threatened on the phone.
Anyway... he gets out in the end, i bet he was busting for the loo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing compared to the ORIGINAL 1963 Classic...., 16 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Haunting, The [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
I love the Original 1963 version of this movie so much so that i couldnt wait for this movie when i heard it was being remade.
The film however is nothing like the original, But that is not so much a bad thing, as giving the story a different road to go down wasnt all that bad.
Although the original storyline is ALOT better, Unfortunatly i wasnt keen on the idea of one makes spirit haunting the whole house while hundreds of ghostly little children are also there stuck in Pergatory with the evil spirit which is Hugh Crane. I felt the change in the storyline was NOT needed. It is a very unrealistic story compared to the original concept. If it has kept the original storyline it would have done alot better.
The acting (by certain actors) is brilliant in the film though. i love Lilly Tyler's portrayal of Eleanor Vance. Owen Wilson plays an Insomniac and has his usual witty humour. Liam Neeson plays the doctor who invited most of them there becouse they where all Insomniacs... Not becouse they where sensitive to the paranormal like the original story.. which i felt was a VERY BAD decission.
The effects are fantastic, especially how the house comes to life and Eleanors bed turns into a cage and traps her in her bed. Very good. But the special effects cant mask the storyline im afraid.
I do have a soft spot for this movie because its a remake of my favourite movie of all time. So i have got it on dvd.. and its worth having if you like a scary ghost movie. But you need to be easily frightenned... as its not as scary as the original as the original used your mind to scare you. but the new film really only uses the special effects to do this. and it doesnt always work. (not for me anyway).
One scene in the film i found ridiculous was when the stone eagle came to life and squawked at Eleanor and she goes and whacks it around the head with a stick.... Hmmm. Something i feel the writers should be ashamed of. especially if they where thinking of making this a better movie that the original.
Remakes rarely beat the originals..in this case that is again very true.
If you havnt seen the original go do a search for it.
