3.0 out of 5 stars Holiday Road - The Next Generation, 29 Aug. 2015
This review is from: Vacation [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I have read ALOT of bad reports about this film, but had to see it due to the fact it was a sequel (NOT A REMAKE) to a franchise I love and because of the inclusion of Clarke and Ellen.
Vacation (2015) starts with Holiday Road playing over the credits. I was grinning from ear to ear immediately. I was sitting waiting for Chevy and Beverly's cameos, but to my surprise, I actually found myself liking Rusty and his family. They were all decent characters and I took to them a few minutes into the film and was quite happy to spend time with them.
The film is WAY funnier than I expected. I laughed a heck of a lot at this film and is the most I've laughed at a film in 2015. To be fair though it hasn't been a vintage year for comedy.
The first hour was funniest, it seemed to run out of steam after they left Audrey's house. Another issue was most of the films best jokes are in the trailers. A common problem these days.
There are plenty of winks and nudges to the earlier films which I appreciated.
Cousin Eddie gets mentioned but sadly isn't seen, and Clarke and Ellen have a very funny cameo but could have had a few more minutes screen time.
Overall - a solid and funny addition to the series and enjoyed alot more than European Vacation and Christmas Vacation 2. So to say its only the third worst in the series was a nice surprise!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Years In Wrestling, 21 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This series has long been available on the WWE Network but if you're like me and still enjoy the physical format, this Blu Ray was my most awaited WWE release this year.
This three disc sets for approx 11 and a half hours and contains the first ten hour long episodes of the show. Each episode ends with a new interview segment with Triple H and Sting, and disc 3 contains over an hour of bonus material not available on the DVD version.

I thoroughly enjoyed this set, but have a couple of serious issues with it.

WCW isnt represented on the front cover art, OK, maybe they will on Volume 2? No - The Rock is on the cover.

I love Sting, and enjoyed the new post episode of interviews, but his replies are repetive sometimes "I don't remember" "I've never seen that match" or "I never heard of that"
A small niggle maybe.

Also, the biggest issue of all - ALOT of footage, interviews and audio are repeated from episode to episode. Seriously, there's a clip of Chyna holding, ahem, a large sausage, which is shown in episode 2, 3 and 4.
Episodes focusing on particular superstars (Austin, Bret Hart and Foley) feel like condensed versions of their own previously released documentaries.

I really enjoyed this set. and it brought back amazing memories of my favourite era in wrestling. Roll on Vol 2 on October, but the above little issues stopped the set from being a five star product.

This set also has English subtitles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Region Free Korean The Monster Squad DVD, 15 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Monster-Squad-Region-Compatible/dp/B0109QQSH8/ref=cm_rdp_product

I watched Monster Squad on Now TV during the week and it was like it was made specifically for me. I've always known of the film and loved the concept, but somehow never watched it. How has this gem eluded me for so long?!

I instantly hit up Amazon to purchase it (preferably on Blu Ray) but knew it was never released in the UK. Any version I could find was either over-priced or region locked.

This Korean version (which I initially feared was a counterfeit as I can't find any info regarding it) was the cheapest option. Im pleased to report it does the job nicely.
The text on the front and back of the cover is 80% Korean and the rest in English. The print on the cover and disc is perfect.
The film itself is in English with Korean and English subtitles available on the menu. Picture and sound is fine - typical DVD quality.
The running time of this film on Now TV is 72 minutes. This DVD cover states its 92, but when i played the disc it is 82 minutes long.

So glad to own this film, it will definitely be watched again soon!


WWE Basic Series 53 Tyler Breeze Figure
WWE Basic Series 53 Tyler Breeze Figure
Offered by Midco Toys Ltd
Price: £16.19

5.0 out of 5 stars First Time In The Line - Tyler Breeze, 14 Aug. 2015
I'm an adult collector of Mattel's WWE line and have a sad little rule where I must have at least one of each character they release.
I have literally NO idea who Tyler Breeze is, but his distinct attire made him a must buy for me.
This is a 'first time in the line' figure of an nXt Superstar and as with alot of Mattels figures, this is mostly re-used parts.
The new headsculpt is excellent and the image of Tyler. He also has new fur boot covers placed over the lower legs.
Paintwork is excellent, with no slop or mess and the belt and detailing on the purple trousers are clean.
Build quality is excellent. All points of articulation move freely but feel solid, so as a toy this fulfills it duties!

Note: I know Mattels 'basic' figures have a 'no accessory' rule, but based on photos and videos I have checked, I really feel this character needs a little mobile phone!


Tremors 4: The Legend Begins [Blu-ray] [2004] [Region Free]
Tremors 4: The Legend Begins [Blu-ray] [2004] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Michael Gross
Price: £8.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Prequel!, 9 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tremors 4 is so close to being very good, but a few things hold it back. Like Tremors 3, its around 15 minutes too long.
It has the worst characters our of all 4 films (apart from Michael Gross as Burt Gummers great grandfather) and weaker writing this time.
The music is also so cheap and distracting. I know its a straight to DVD film, but it doesn't look like one - the music definitely tells you you are in straight to DVD territory though.
What really surprised me about this film though, is the excellent creature effects. Its a massive step up from the lacklustre Tremors 3, with a more subtle use of CGI and some fantastic practical effects. Its also considerably more violent than Tremors 3, hence the 12 rating. This film clearly had a larger budget.

I liked alot about this film, but the awful characters just took me out of the film too much.

Blu Ray release is poor. No bonus material to speak off, but picture and sound quality are decent.


Tremors 2 : Aftershocks [Blu-ray] [1996] [Region Free]
Tremors 2 : Aftershocks [Blu-ray] [1996] [Region Free]
Dvd ~ Christopher Gartin
Price: £8.99

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.

Price: £8.99

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: £31.49

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
