5.0 out of 5 stars Just Push Play? FNA!!!!!, 16 Nov. 2001
This review is from: Just Push Play (Audio CD)
what with aerosmith having been around so long and having so many albums, it's only natural that they should sound tired, boring and (titter) jaded on this album... but they're far from it! this is the cd that got me hooked on aerosmith. they experiment with lots of new sounds and they all come out stunning. jaded and sunshine are two stonking rock anthems. fly away from here and luv lies are the album's two big powerful ballads. fly away from here is stunning and the album version sounds so much better than the hacked up radio edit which was on the music video. the title track 'just push play' is very strange. it's more on the lines of limp bizkit, and it's unlike anything they've ever done. it sounds a lot better the second time round hearing it. it's gonna be one of their future singles (as is sunshine!) and it'll be interesting to see how it does. the uk version of the cd (this one!) is enhanced and includes the jaded music video and the bonus track 'face', which is a sweet song also. this is one of their best albums of recent years because it shows they've got with the times (and got their hair cut!) and they have loads more left in them. this album will appeal to people who liked their earlier stuff and the linkin park teenyboppers who haven't discovered their music yet. why bother with limp bizkit when a legendary band like aerosmith are still going strong and have some great new material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darkman 2, 28 Nov. 2000
When I first saw this film I had no idea it was a 'straight-to-video' release. It's got a kind of big budget cinematic feel to it. I first saw it on The Sci-Fi Channel and recorded it and have watched it millions of times. To my surprise I found out it was out on DVD so I bought it and there's one heck of a difference. The quality's awesome and a lot less grainy than on video. Being better quality and in widescreen, it's a lot easier to get into. Durant is THE ultimate baddie and they couldn't have picked a better actor. There IS a lot of action, but not as much as in the first film. There's a good balance of action and humour and all the rest, the camera work is terrific, and it is cleverly directed. There's also a good musical score by Danny Elfman (Batman, Beetlejuice, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow, Men in Black etc..) Oh, and ain't the image on the front cover of the box just SO cool?!

3.0 out of 5 stars Graveyard Disturbance, 27 July 2000
Graveyard Disturbance is sort of like The Goonies, but obviously a lot better. The basic storyline is that a bunch of people take on the challenge of staying in a crypt ("the gateway to hell") for the night, and get a load of tresure as a reward if they make it through until dawn. During their stay they briefly (and boy, I mean BRIEFLY!) encounter a couple of zombies and a bunch of ghouls, but most of the time they're just running around inside the crypt which gets a bit boring after a while. The special effects r quite good. As for the extra features, there's a really lame theatrical trailer, a gallery with shots from the film and somet about the director. Worth taking a look.

2.0 out of 5 stars Iffy, 26 July 2000
As a big fan of zombie flicks I felt it was my duty to buy this film on DVD... so I did. With the exception of the absolutely aweful Zombie Nosh, this is one of my least loved flesh-eating flicks. The dubbing was poorly done and the storyline dragged on too much. Saying that, some of the special effects were good and the zombies were realistic. But probably the main set-back about Zombie Flesh Eaters is that the scenes tend to drag on too much. It's iffy.

3.0 out of 5 stars DrAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!cula, 25 July 2000
Got this DVD this morning... and lobbed it in the DVD player straight away. This was definately not what I expected! The thing about this is that it's more of a love story... obviously something most people wouldn't usuaully associate with a bloody-thirsty, satanic demon. I can't believe that an hour into the film I started feeling sorry for Dracula! But, it most certainly does make a change from the classic Hammer, Christopher Lee stuff. I noticed a hell of a lot of stuff copied from the 1922 classic Nosferatu, one of the first vampire films based on Dracula, although the film-makers were probably ressurecting some of the old material, rather than "copying it" as such. This includes some scenes that were shot in the same way.
As for extra features... This DVD contains an awesome 30 minute programme about how they made the film and a brief look at the history of Dracula. It also contains the theatrical trailer, and some other stuff.
There's a bit at the beginning where he thrusts a sword into the centre of a huge stone crucifix which spurt out loads of blood, and then the statues of angels start crying tears of blood really freaked me out! Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Original London Cast, 10 Dec. 1999
The singing is a bit cheesy, but not only is this the first ever live performance of The Rocky Horror Show but it is all sung by those in the movie... Tim Curry, Patricia Quinn, Little Nell and Richard O'Brien. However, there is no Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Peter Hinwood (Rocky) or, obviously, Meatloaf.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ULTIMATE Rocky Horror CD!, 20 Nov. 1999
There's loads and loads of Rocky Horror CDs out but The Ultimate & Best Of... one is definately the ultimate, because it contains songs from both the movie AND the stage shows. Plus the song Eddie's Teddy has audience participation. A MUST HAVE for all Rocky Horror fans!
