4.0 out of 5 stars Overall I am very happy with, 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because I have always wanted one so when I saw this at the cheap price it was I just had to order it. Once it came U was shocked at how big the thing is and it will deffo take me months / years to fill it. There is 1 problem with it and that is the lid won't come off without a massive fight and a struggle with a knife as it's proper jammed on.

Overall I am very happy with it

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought This For My Girlfriend, 8 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With my girlfriend being 20 weeks pregnant, I thought this would make a nice Christmas present and with a cute baby on the front I'm sure should would like it, but once it came it was too small and very tight around the arms.

She didn't like it and she couldn't imagine it fitting her when she is about to give birth so we went it back.

I am sure it will fit other people but just a word of warning get the bigger size as the fit you want might not fit.

This is a great song, one of the better songs James has sang. His voice goes with the music and suits the tone. I just hope he gets a new record deal soon

Just ordered this book and I enjoyed it, it is about a mysterious stranger who picks up Amy from a bar, then from then on it's none stop sex. I would recommend reading it considering it's free (from when I got it) as I have read worse stories. All in all recommended for a time killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic - Luniz: I Got 5 On it, 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Got 5 on It (Audio CD)
I remember buying this in 1995 and it was awesome. Luniz had a hit with this but then faded into the background after this song. Even now the beat is used on other songs so proves how successful this song was. On this single there is 6 versions of the song and 3 have a different beat.

Overall this is a classic song that should have been heard by everyone the world over by now and if you haven't heard it where have you been for the past 19 years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another Wu Album - Wu Massacre, 13 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Wu Massacre (Audio CD)
I was looking forward to this album after being a Wu fan since their Enter The 36 Chambers album and their various solo albums. So when I finally bought it and heard it I'll admit it wasn't what I was expecting - I was expecting hard beats and a sick flow but what I got was a pop rap album.

With only 12 songs it runs at just over 30 mins which means once it starts its over which is short for a rap album. As ususal the flow is very good from all 3 members but it just feels like there is something missing from it. It feels rushed and the beats feel cheap.

It was like they were reaching for the past with the song titles and couldn't quite grasp it so they settled with sub par beats. Songs like Criminology 2.0 and Meth Vs Chef 2 prove this.

I'll admit it is a good album to buy and listen too but there is a lot of better albums out there. Even from the 3 members on this album, they have released better albums in the past so buy those 1st then buy this. So it's still a good album but just not as good as previous releases and it's one to add to the collection

This review is from: Crossed Shadows (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book as the cover really appealed to me and I'm glad I did, It was a fantastic thriller with a gripping plot which I won't spoil. I can't wait until his next book and I'd seriously consider picking it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Attack of the Italians, 1 April 2014
I'm not sure that strictly speaking this movie is classifiable as a peplum. Peplum films are often characterized as Italian action movies that take place in ancient times and star Hercules, a Son of Hercules or one of many Hercu-surrogates. Feisty midgets sidekicks are not uncommon and there is usually at least one veil dance. The leading man in this film, while definitely a hero, is of non-Herculean stature. The movie also seems to take place in Medieval Middle East. However the movie does bear many similarities to the classic peplum including: 1. Gorgeous heaving Mediterranean women who majored in Veil Dancing in B-Movie finishing school, 2. The hero is a man of the people who delivers the masses from the rule of an oppressive tyrant, 3. If you try to follow the plot literally you'll end up in a straightjacket or with your head in a gas oven. Better to just flow along like a twig on the shoulders of a mighty river and enjoy the ride. For these reasons I am awarding this movie Honorary Peplum Status.

Piecing together the plot from scraps of intelligible dialogue was like deciphering the Rosetta stone, only much, much more difficult. I think it shakes out like this: An evil dude named Omar wants to win the Golden Throne of the Maji, which would give him total power over whatever country this thing takes place in. You can tell he's evil because he is always whipping someone, slapping someone or laughing maniacally and because he walks around shirtless and aggressively flashing his beefy nipples at everyone. "Cower before Omar's mighty nipples!!!" is a line often heard through this film. In order to win the Throne he has to fight the kingdoms greatest warriors, the Seven Saracens, plus another warrior who has been chosen by the gods (Ali Baba). Since he is evil he imprisons Ali Baba and a smoking hot princess with the hope that somehow this will help him defeat the other Saracens during the Big Tournament and Harvest Ball.

Ali isn't imprisoned long thanks to the intervention of Jookie the cunning dwarf (is there any other kind?). The most moving part of the film is when Jookie bids farewell to Ali, the only person to treat him like a friend, and the dwarf breaks down and cries. There's also a scene where a chubby guy in a turban dances on a tabletop for the rest of the prisoners who are clapping and laughing. I'm not sure what that scene was supposed to bring to the narrative, but it was disturbing enough to take your mind off the lonely, sobbing midget.

Well no sooner is Ali Baba away from the influence of a more competent person, which could have been anyone really, then he winds up captured and right back in Omar's torture garden.

Does he escape, win the throne, defeat Omar O'the Nipples and get the fabulous babe? Are you new? Of course he does, but I'll let this little flower of a film unveil its final petals for you all by itself.

The mass fight scenes are laughably terrible. The fencers seem more interested in not getting hit and then also in not hitting their opponent so you have a mob of burly guys in armor dancing gingerly around each other. In a few scenes I saw some of the extras appear to stop fighting and lean on their swords in order to catch their breath. But they were husky lads wearing heavy armor under a hot sun, so maybe they needed the break.

Believe it or not, it's the acting that makes this movie.

Not the acting of Bruno Piergentili who plays Ali Baba. He seems about as wooden and vaguely constipated as many peplum heroes, but who says the male lead in these movies has to be interesting? In this movie that's left to the supporting cast.

Gordon Mitchell as Omar makes an excellent over the top villain. Seriously he was more than a match for most peplum heroes. He menacingly glowers like nobodies business and tears up every scene he's in. Gordon Mitchell is just a whole lot of fun to watch.

Bella Cortez as Fatima, the bodacious babe, is the reason the word voluptuous was invented. She's why cavemen painted pouty lips on cave walls. Acting.....um.....yeah I think she does some acting.

Franco Doria played Sharif, Omar's aide de camp. He's evil, manipulative, cool headed, aloof and intellectual. He what would happen if Dick Cheney and Mr. Spock had a baby and Franco plays him perfectly.

Tony Di Mitri played Jookie the dwarf, who is the smartest and noblest character in the story. He's a likable guy.

The best fight scene is when the Harem girls take on Omar's personal bodyguards. Those girls had A lot of repressed anger.

Ali Baba is as cheesy as it gets, but it's earnest in a Lil' Rascals/Andy Hardy "Let's put on a show" kind of way. It's ill scripted, improbable and illogical, but it still wants you to have a good time. So I say, if you're in the mood for some dopey fun and a ridiculously hot Cuban actress, give this movie a shot.

I've watched a number of Trojan War movies recently, and this may be the very best.

Like Homer's Iliad, it begins toward the end of the war and ends before the episode of the Trojan Horse; the focus is strictly on one man, Achilles, and his fate. A knowledge of the dramatis personae and the basic circumstances is presumed of the viewer, just as Homer expected his listeners to know who Paris was, or how Iphigenia died.

Unlike any other Trojan War film I've seen, this one, like Homer, includes the gods and their divine intervention in human affairs. Achilles' near-invincibility is a supernatural fact, as demonstrated in a scene when he's stabbed and the blade is destroyed as if blasted by lightning. Yet the film doesn't feel like a fantasy, as do similar films about Jason, Hercules, or Ulysses; it's a psychological drama in which the psyche of the main character is driven by his understanding of his divine destiny. An oracle has revealed that Troy cannot fall until its champion, Hector, dies; Hector cannot die until Achilles slays him; and once that happens, Achilles must die. This is the burden of greatness — and doom — that lies upon Achilles.

Even dubbed, Gordon Mitchell gives a powerful and convincing portrayal of the warrior who is both hero and monster. His physical presence is perfect: his physique is statuesque but his features are so rugged as to be ugly (think of Charles Bronson or Jack Palance); he is sexually alluring, physically intimidating, and frightening to look at.

The script is surprisingly, sometimes amazingly, literate, verging on the poetic. Especially memorable are Achilles' explanation of his invulnerability to the captured Briseis, which ironically reveals his vulnerability and wins her pity and affection; Patroclus' plea to Hector to kill him after he's been wounded; and Hector's farewell speech to his wife and the people of Troy before he goes out to battle Achilles. The climactic duel between the two warriors is very well-staged and utterly riveting.

I wonder if the makers of TROY saw this movie? If so, they learned nothing from it. If they had simply done a remake of this film, reproducing its insights into the tragedy of Achilles and Hector, Brad Pitt would be the possessor of an Oscar today!

Here's the rub: this movie is very hard to locate on DVD, at least in the US. The only copy I've found, on a compilation DVD called RETURN TO TROY, is from a very degraded full-screen print, hardly watchable by most viewer's standards. If this movie could be seen in a well-preserved widescreen print, it would be truly spectacular.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, 1 April 2014
This is by far one of the better films Randall made . The locations are better than usual being done in the Lone Pine area . The script is far above average for the continuity . The story actually flows although the subplot of Randall and Moore being brothers takes the center stage . But this is unusual for a Monogram programmer . I was impressed by story ,continuity ,scenery and even acting . Randall was more subdued and especially Yaconelli . He can be a real pain as noted in the Tom Keene series .

Tansy was in charge of this film as well as 'The Song of Old Wyoming '. He wrote the script for this film and directed ' Song of Old Wyoming ' You can see without too much thought that this film was the genesis for " Song of Old Wyoming " and why. Buckskin ( Hal Price ) becomes Uncle Ezra ( Emmett Lynn ) . Both teach the kid how to carve a doll which reveals their true identity . The Kansas Kid ( Dennis Moore ) becomes The Cheyenne Kid ( Lash LaRue).

Randall's interest in Joyce Bryant has a little play which the ending reveals he is satisfied that justice has been satisfied . Moore had no interest in her . If you want to see Randall at his best , this is the one for you

3.0 out of 5 stars MMA Version of THE FIGHTER, 25 May 2013
This review is from: Warrior [DVD] (DVD)
Last night I watched Warrior which is an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) film about two brothers played by Tom Hardy & Joel Edgerton that don't get along.

Tommy (Joel) is an ex marine that is haunted by his past of almost drowning and dying which has made him go off the rails. Brendan on the other hand is an ex MMA fighter who is now a teacher and also has the perfect family but he has a problem, he has no money coming in and could lose his house.

That is until they both hear about a huge MMA event called SPARTA which could turn both of their lives around.

Now let's be honest, if you've seen THE FIGHTER then you know what to expect, this is near enough the same story just with a different sport and I will admit it was a good film which starred lots of real MMA fighters and UFC stars (including WWE / TNA wrestling star KURT ANGLE which puts in a menacing performance).

It just wasn't what I expected, yes the fights are well filmed and it is like watching a UFC event in the fight scenes.

I just didn't warm to any of the characters and it was more drama then action (which can be a good thing) but this left me cold as you can see who the main fight is going to be against before it even gets there.

The film rushes to it's main event final and it seems that in the film everyone and their dog is really into MMA like a religion and their TV is stuck on the channel that is showing MMA, UFC, ESPN MMA News (anything to do with MMA).

It just seemed rushed to me like they had ran out of ideas so it was a quick let's get to the main event.

So i'll end it here by saying if you like MMA check this film out, otherwise your not missing much as their are films that tell this type of story better.
