5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to the 'movies from comic books' genre, 27 May 2005
This review is from: X Men 2 [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
Comic book movies in general get a bad reputation from being rushed into production and having scripts that totally ignores every aspect of the characters that made readers like them in the first place.
Luckily 'X Men 2' has none of these problems. It builds on what storylines from the first film and the characters are very true to the comics. The action sequences and quieter character moments sit very well together and the direction and special effects are superb - check out the opening sequence in the White House. The ongoing storyline of people who are different being looked down upon by others is, sad to say, as relevant now as when the comics first came out and it handles these aspects without being mawqish.
Having said that, it's also a very entertaining nights viewing if you just want to watch a movie and not bother with any of the subtext of people fitting into society.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Musical., 9 April 2003
An excellent version of the musical. Perfect to listen to when doing boring chores as you'll perk up no end with all the lively tunes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A funny & enjoyable read., 9 April 2003
This review is from: Can You Keep A Secret? (Paperback)
Looking for a present for a friend, I picked up this book and skimmed a few pages. I was immediately hooked by the bright, easy tone and even though the story itself isn't very long (I was lucky enough to get the time to read it in a day), the main characters, Emma and Jack are very engaging.
Okay, so this type of book can be very predicable but I found myself rooting for the two of them anyway. It's also laugh out loud funny in places. A book for anywhere and at any time, but be warned: it's very engrossing so if you read it on a lunch break, you might not be able to put it down so easy.
