1.0 out of 5 stars Jaw-droppingly dreadful, 16 Jun 2008
There are no words for how bad this film is... i know you'll probably watch it anyway... but remember that you were warned... the only funny parts are where you gasp and giggle at how predictable the plot 'twists' are... oh, and the expression on helen mirren's face that just screams 'let me out'!

4.0 out of 5 stars lily allen meets regina spektor, 12 May 2007
This review is from: Foundations (Audio CD)
Heard this on 6 Music yesterday... confessional lo-fi doesn't get much better than this, witty and well-observed teenage angst, very british, very quirky. However, very likely to grate after a number of plays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas songs you can listen to, 22 Dec 2006
An enjoyable and well put together collection of Christmas songs, from the traditional to the humorous.

5.0 out of 5 stars More excellent stuff from the Ghost in the Shell franchise, 7 Nov 2006
This is the second set of DVDs in the 'Standalone Complex' series. Major Motoko Kusanagi and Section 9 are fighting terrorists again in the real and virtual world. Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG uncovers more of the back-story than the first season, including information about the last world wars.

An intelligent and enjoyable series that explores a wide range of 'cyber' issues in a far more intelligent and human way than most manga. The music (courtesy of Yoko Kanno) is also uniformly excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great to hear an intelligent girl band, 19 Oct 2006
This review is from: Once And Never Again (Audio CD)
Also heard this on 6 Music. Amusing lyrics and a good new wave-ish melody, marvellous stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars best in class, 14 Oct 2006
The Fujifilm F30 was announced earlier this year, and its selling points were clear... up to ISO 3200 light-sensitivity, ultra fast start-up speed with imperceptible 'shutter lag', all in a small form-factor with a huge, bright LCD, and excellent battery life. It became available in the UK last week. I purchased one last Friday.

It looks beautiful, the design is elegant, yet robust, with the two main niggles being the fragile, fiddly plastic cover for the USB and power sockets, and the plastic tripod thread.

The LCD screen is so clear and bright (when you select the 60 frames per second refresh rate) that the lack of an optical viewfinder is not missed, and the menu system is ugly but well thought out, with the most used functions available via buttons on the rear of the camera.

Focussing is fast and accurate, even in very low-light... which is fortunate, as this is a camera that works in VERY low light. Indoor and evening pictures can be achieved without flash, allowing natural-looking shots to be taken in nearly any situation, especially as the shutter-lag really is imperceptible, you press the button, and the picture is taken. There is even a superb function where you keep the shutter held down, and the camera takes a stream of pictures, only keeping the three just before you 'release' the shutter. Great for those 'waiting for something to happen' shots

5.0 out of 5 stars An under-rated classic, 10 Sep 2006
The Sigma SD-10 has a unique selling point, its Foveon CCD. The images from it are unique, natural and detailed. Visit [...] to find out more about the sensor. Visit [...] for some examples of what makes this a superb camera. Buyer's remorse warning: the SD10's successor, the SD14 will be released in September 2006.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable load of rubbish, 15 Aug 2006
This review is from: Stealth [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
If you liked Fast and Furious, Triple X, et al, you'll enjoy this. It's not going to win any Oscars. It's not going to change the way you live your life. But it has enough action, humour and drama to make it worth a rental.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the original songs, 12 July 2006
This review is from: We Are Family (Audio CD)
I bought this thinking it would contain the original hits... should have seen the 'Hallmark' warning!!! These are all live recordings... not terrible, and I guess OK for a Sister Sledge completist... but a bit of a disappointment for someone expecting the original single versions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A flawed but excellent film, 11 Jun 2006
This review is from: Lord of War [DVD] (DVD)
This film manages to walk the tightrope of being an edgy and enjoyable critique of the international arms trade, no preaching and no easy answers, and yet managing to present us with the terrifying facts.

The locations were are stunningly shot, and the action scenes excellent.

The acting is variable, Cage is on his best form, but his 'brother' (Jared Leto?) is better at being cute than he is at being convincing.

Not a 'feel-good' film... some of the scenes are gritty, and it leaves you with more questions than answers... but well-worth a watch.
