5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Film; Blu Ray not so much, 29 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On 3D this film is terrific; key scenes are full screen so I assume Imax footage was used. The result is simply jaw dropping. The shame is that on the standard bluray disk the full screen footage has not been included. Still a great film but the impact is lost in key places.

Very glad we spent the extra and got this on 3D. Stunning.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable romp., 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very enjoyable film. Perhaps nothing staggeringly new about it but the execution, effects and acting carry it along at a great pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value, 8 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kids loved them. Since getting Skylanders Giants from our neighbours whose own children were no longer playing it ours have loved it. My sons favourite from this set is Prism Break although I have a soft spot for Drill Sargent. They have some good upgrades and are a lot of fun. Good value purchase for a set of 3.

Bought this as a friend had boomed tickets for us to.see then on tour next year. Had heard Anna Sun and loves it. Glad to say that the album lives up to that track. Worth a buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Babel or Sigh No More?, 27 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Babel (Audio CD)
If you liked Sigh No More you will love this. Especially as it sounds like the same tunes with only the lyrics changed. Way too similar for me. On a second listen you will discover that there are substantial differences; the tunes may sound familiar but they lack what made the first album special. There is little here to make you want to come back for more. I'll keep listening to it - my view may change. But for the minute this is something of a disappointment.

Edited after several listens - well, do I like the album any more? Short answer is yes; although I still feel there are a lot of similarities to Sigh No More. But, and it's a big but; there is nothing to dislike about the album as a whole. No song do I want to skip past, and I keep wanting to listen again. There are some stand out tracks - most notably the title track Babel, Whispers in the Dark, Hopeless Wanderer. Lover of the Light is a total triumph. The bonus tracks are also some of the stand out moments Where Are You now and For Those Below are superb.

So - it gets way better with future listens. In fact I've gone from 3 stars and increased to 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb - Acting to die for, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tyrannosaur [DVD] (DVD)
Really this is a very good film. The story is dark; very dark and not something to warm the cockles of your heart. Or so you would think, as by the end there is plenty of light after the tunnel. But it really is the acting in this that is what makes the film. Olivia Colman - there really are no words to describe how good she is in this - utterly superb; ok so there are words to describe how good she is. And not forgetting Peter Mullan he is horrible; lovely; angry; kind; helpful; violent - sometimes all in one scene.

A difficult film to watch at times; but the rewards make the journey worthwhile.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear What Went Wrong?, 30 Jun. 2012
Something must have gone very wrong somewhere in the production of this film. You have some rather nice special effects but they are saddled to a story that is barely that - "lights go out; aliens attack; people die; other people run around; then it ends". The acting is adequate but full of cliché as if no real effort was put into the script. This would have been a great little film if it had been put together as a short by a film student and posted on line. However it tries to be more than that and fails on all levels.

I'm not having much luck with films at the minute. Fingers crossed for the next one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mind Numbingly Awful, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Take Shelter [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Thankfully I only rented this film. Awful, awful, awful. Nothing happens, nothing. And while nothing happens a great deal of talking occurs. And when there's no talking there is the endless navel gazing; endless navel gazing. Oh and of course no smiling. This must have been a big part of the script "under no circumstances is an actor to be found smiling while cameras are rolling". Oh and the story, or rather what passes for it; "ok so there's this guy, right; and this guy sees a storm; but it's only a vision; and then he is unhappy; and his kid can't hear" and so it goes on. I wont spoil the end - but thankfully it does end.

Not a fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin - or rather did, 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed a second battery as my Xperia mini pro was using it's original battery up after half a day. New one arrived quickly and has held it's charge very well. For the price this is hard to beat.

This is an update - after about a month of using this battery it now does not hold it's charge very well - have reverted back to the original battery that came with the phone as it's still holding way more charge than this one.
