1.0 out of 5 stars Horribly Implausible, 13 Feb. 2002
I recently had the misfortune of giving Patricia Cornwell a chance, and, to say the least. I really regretted it.
In this book, the much vaunted character of Dr Kay Scarletti, Pathologist extraordinaire, is drawn into a web of murders which may or may not be connected. The "highly original" link in these cases is the discover of headless & limbless torsos.
So far so good.
Then comes the introduction of lost loves, long held grudges, a mutated smallpox virus and internet intrigue.
All in all it's a shabby collection of ideas, poorly executed, extremely implausible and above all totally uninvolving.
It really is a terrible, terrible book and on the evidence presented here, I cannot for the life of me figure out why Kay Scarletti is touted as such a great characted. As far as I could tell she talks a good talk and not a whole lot else.

4.0 out of 5 stars Foreboding Delights, 17 Aug. 2001
This review is from: The Batman Trilogy (Audio CD)
This is quite an enlightening CD collection as it manages to define the first three Batman movies in quite a number of ways.
Firstly, it is the perfect companion to the visuals on display in the movie. In the style of most cinematic opera scores, most of the main characters have their own distinct theme's, even the Batmobile. These range from the dark (Batman's) through the psychotic (Catwoman's) to the whimsical (The Joker's), but the interweaving of these themes helps to avoid the caricuturisation of any of these characters and underlines the subtext, at least of Burton's movies, that these characters are a lot more like each other than they'd like to believe.
Secondly, The differences (and again similarities) between Elfman's Batman score & John William's Superman scores both have certain consistencies, but their primary differences serve to outline the differing moods set by the directors in making the movies, The Batman soundtrack managing to be fairly dark and claustrophobic despite it's epic scope while the Superman soundtrack, on listening, helps make you believe that a man can fly.
Thirdly, the differences between the Goldenthal & Elfman soundtracks show the differing directions taken by both movies. During the Elfman period, the music defines the Batman as an enigmatic character whose very essence pervades the entire atmosphere of the movie. The Goldenthal soundtrack, while not quite as great, shows the Batman to be more of a performance character, almost, like a prisoner of the movie and not it's master.
Finally, a word on the composer and performers. To be honest, I can't think of anything to say. The music was that close to that of the films themselves, and I think the fact that I was able to enjoy the music without worrying at the imperfections should be praise enough for their good work.
