Tremors 2 : Aftershocks [Blu-ray] [1996] [Region Free]
Tremors 2 : Aftershocks [Blu-ray] [1996] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Christopher Gartin
Price: £7.10

3.0 out of 5 stars Tremors 2 Blu Ray, 17 July 2015
A solid straight-to-video sequel to the excellent Tremors.
Aftershocks has good performances from returning actors Fred Ward and Michael Gross, and an OK 'replacement' for Kevin Bacons character in Christopher Gartin's likable Grady.
The problem with this film is its overlong in my opinion. At over 100 minutes long, it loses momentum at around the 1 hour mark. Theres a great 80/90 minute movie in here.
Also, the picture quality on the Bu Ray really isnt anything special. Not only is it grainy at times, its also quite fuzzy at times. I expect clearness and sharpness from Blu Ray.
Special features are badly missing too - not even a trailer.
Tremors 2 is the best of the sequels but the Blu Ray is very poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance Of The Living Dead - Blu Ray Version, 17 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a worthy upgrade if you are a fan of this film. the picture and sound quality are very good, but you will really appreciate when you compare it to a DVD version of the film. The difference is truly night and day.

The film is very very good and genuinely funny, but episodic and sketchy with no real narrative flow. Watching the bonus features explain why the film seems a bit random at times and I appreciate it even more now - its almost a surprise it got completed at all!

Where this Blu Ray really shines is the absolutely brilliant bonus material, an 80 minute documentary (one of the best special features I have ever watched for any film) with some brutal honesty and alot of information that was new to me. You also get another similar 30 minute documentary with some out-takes scattered throughout.

Never seem this film? Give it a shot.
Never owned it but want to? Get this Blu Ray version.
Have it on DVD and wonder if its worth the upgrade? 100% yes.


WWE Defining Moments Sting Figure
WWE Defining Moments Sting Figure
Offered by Sophie110792
Price: £30.49

5.0 out of 5 stars The Icon, 17 July 2015
I am loving Mattel's relaunched Defining Moments line and STING is another hugely important release.
He is the first ever Sting figure from Mattel and like Razor, Hogan and Flair before him, COMPLETELY worth the wait!
Alot of effort has went into this figure. From the beautifully personalized packaging (it broke my heart to open it) to the new sculpting on Stings attire. Very little reuse on the body and legs here. The paint is also very tidy - I find the quality control on the WWE line exceptional.
Tidy detailing on Stings crow like face paint, and the scorpion is nicely painted on his attire.
He comes with two iconic and essential accessories. The icons iconic bat, and his long black jacket. The jacket is made from a good quality material and is a breath of fresh air. I was getting sick of those solid rubber jackets Mattel have been using lately (Elite Jericho, Los Matadores, multiple Undertakers) The material jacket feels strong and allows for poses,
Defining Moments figures have the excellent Elite articulation which consists of:
Head – ball joint
Shoulders – ball joint
Biceps – swivel
Elbows – pivot
Wrists – swivel/pivot
Abdomen – pivot
Waist – swivel
Hips – Ball joint
Thighs – swivel
Knees – double pivot
Ankles – pivot
Foot – pivot

This figure is absolutely superb but do shop around as some online prices are a bit silly when he is £22.99 in Smyths

5.0 out of 5 stars Info For The DVD Release Of The Rogue Cut, 12 July 2015
Some product info.
This is a 2 disc set. The first disc is the previously released disc of the theatrical cut of Days Of Future Past. The other disc contains the Rogue Cut with 17 minutes of additional features and all the bonus material from the Blu Ray version.
It comes with a nice slipcover as well.
Although I bought the Blu Ray version, this is a solid DVD release and those who still collect DVD won't feel like theyre being short changed.


WWE Elite Series 36 Action Figure - Stardust
WWE Elite Series 36 Action Figure - Stardust
Offered by a1 Toys
Price: £28.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Mattel Hit Another Homerun, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mattel's WWE output in 2015 has been some of their best yet.
Elite Stardust in another absolute gem of a figure. The head-sculpt is so perfect its really quite impressive. The remainder of the sculpt is all re-use with the exception of the spikey gauntlets on the wrists. Paintwork is excellent head to toe, with plenty of details from stars scattered throughout, plenty of detail on the back of the figure and wonderful paint on his face. His eyes are red and his manic grin perfect.

Another huge plus for this figure is the inclusion of not one, but two tag team championship belts. These have been on my want list, having never been issued with any figure I've been particularly after. They are both incredibly well sculpted and feature the new 'WWE' logo on the main plate and side plates. They are also both nice and shiny!

Like all Elite figures, the articulation is excellent:

Head – ball joint
Shoulders – ball joint
Biceps – swivel
Elbows – pivot
Wrists – swivel/pivot
Abdomen – pivot
Waist – swivel
Hips – Ball joint
Thighs – swivel
Knees – double pivot
Ankles – pivot
Foot – pivot


WWE Elite Series 36 Action Figure - Goldust
WWE Elite Series 36 Action Figure - Goldust
Offered by a1 Toys
Price: £22.00

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bizarre One At His Finest, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is Mattel's 3rd Elite Goldust figure and is my favourite so far. In fact, I would go as far to say this is one of my favourite Mattel WWE figures ever.
We get alot of white trunks or black trunks figures, someone like Goldust makes an appealing figure that sticks out so much more and is more interesting to look at.
The figure is a remould with a new head. Usually I prefer a more neutral facial expression but this new open mouth head looks perfect. The attire choice is VERY cool. Alot of black maybe, but with plenty of nicely painted gold detailing and 'Goldust' painted across the back.
The only issue with this figure, is that the back of the head is not painted - and I don't mean as in face-paint, I mean as in the plastic in unpainted.
His hair line and neck are a light orange colour.
My favourite thing about this figure is the AWESOME accessory. He comes with a removable jacket which is so cool looking and incredibly well sculpted and painted. The jacket fits perfectly, had studs sculpted down the front and back and is packed full of detailing front and back.
If you want to remove it easily, I would recommend pointing Goldust's arms straight back and sliding it off that way.
I had one issue with the jacket, but after a quick bit of research I see its accurate. The large plastic clip to hold it closed at the front. It looks like its there for the simple purpose of closing the jacket on the figure, but it IS accurate and this is the zip of the jacket.

I can't recommend this figure enough, I really cant. A great figure if a classic character, with all the elite articulation, solid build quality and brilliant accessory


Ghostbusters Set of 5 Vinyl Stickers
Ghostbusters Set of 5 Vinyl Stickers

Price: £1.74

5.0 out of 5 stars Mother Puss Bucket....., 5 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to stick on the old laptop, I will pretty much buy anything with a Ghostbusters logo slapped on it.
There are 5 x stickers. The main 'large' one (about the size of the top of a can of coke) and 4 x smaller stickers about the size of 10 pence piece.
The main sticker is probably a little smaller than I expected, but the price was right and overall quality good.
Be careful when removing the main logo sticker though, it may tear round the fingers part if panicking!
Price, P&P and delivery time were top notch.

4.0 out of 5 stars What A Sequel Should Be!, 5 July 2015
This review is from: The Purge: Anarchy [DVD] (DVD)
The Purge was an pretty poor film filled to the brim with plot-holes and idiotic characters.
It was an excellent concept - 12 hours of the year anything goes - that was poorly executed and ended up being a generic home invasion flick.

The Purge Anarchy, whilst not an necessarily an excellent film, IS an excellent sequel. Its everything you wanted the first film to be and its everything a sequel should be and can be.

The characters are pretty bland outside Frank Grillo, and the script is barely there, but its visually interesting, atmospheric and exciting.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. Its well paced with a satisfying ending.
And the best thing is, you really don't need to see the weak first film to enjoy this!
