5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value for money, 15 May 2014
Recently purchased a road bike and needed some pedals to go with it. These are meant for mountain bikes but a lot of people use these for road bikes with no hassle. I decided to go for these because you can clip in to both sides of the peddle whereas with a road bike pedal its just the one side.

So i got them fitted on the bike and did a test up against a wall, and i was very surprised how easy my foot went in and out of the pedal. Very easy indeed.

And then i took to the road and of course im nervous i will fall out, but there was no need because as mentioned it is very easy to get your foot out the pedal, just rotate your foot towards the bike and out you pop.

So to recap:

Great looking pedals
Easy to clip in and out of
Terrific price tag

5.0 out of 5 stars Remastered 2014 edition Steelbook, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing needs to be said of the film, but what of the brand new transfer, and how can we compare it with the first Blu Ray release?

Simply put, it is better than the previous release, the speckles and other niggles that plagued the first release are fixed.
Colour wise, there is a teal push, very much like the Terminator and Halloween remaster, and that gives the image a cooler, accurate and more natural look. Grain is intact but less noise than before, and to my eyes it is sharper too.

Overall i am very happy with this release in terms of picture quality.

Audio quality wise i do not think it offers any improvement over previous release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be seen on Blu Ray, 15 Dec 2013
This is the most incredible blu ray i have ever seen. Its right up there with Alien in terms of picture quality. For a film of its time, the picture is near flawless.

As for the movie itself, what can i say that hasn't already been said? It has to be seen to be believed. Kubrick is a genius

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure to play. Potential Game of the Year, 3 Dec 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
In a nutshell this is a fantastic game. I rarely buy games these days as they don't hold any lasting appeal and they take you down that same old linear route. I much prefer open world adventures where you can have so much fun exploring and seeing what you can encounter. Trouble is there are not many about that are pure class, such as Skyrim and Fallout 3. Im glad to say that Farcry 3 delivers in the fact you can go anywhere you want and do what you want. What i like about the game is that anything can happen when you are traveling around. The game doesn't revolve around you and the AI humans and animals react to each other aswell and that's the beauty. At one point i was sneaking over a hill and there were two pirates on the road, and here was me getting ready for the kill when a tiger just came out of nowhere and did the work for me. Any game that is unpredictable like this is certainly huge fun to play.

The main missions are really good and you do get involved in the story. The main villain is a bit psychotic and i wont say no more. You will have blast wading through the main quest.

There are a variety of side missions to go through and all of them fun. Find wanted posters and kill the baddie for rewards. Race other drivers in some of the many car races. Skin animals to create wallets, pouches and rucksacks. Collect plants so you can create various potions to help you survive. Also there are many pirate strongholds to reclaim, and when you do it becomes a safehouse for you so you can save your game.

If you love shooting the crap out of people and blowing things up, then that's fine, you have the choice to go that route if you like. And there's the stealth way which is really fun and rewarding. Playing this game you are most probably gonna be doing a hefty mix of both

Not gonna go in depth in anything else as most people have covered the rest. The graphics are amazing and the island is a pleasure to explore. Multiplayer is average, id rather stick to single player.

I think this is a better game than Dishonoured, Assasins Creed 3 and Hitman. This deserves game of the year. Great job

4.0 out of 5 stars Depressing, but captivating, 3 Jun 2012
Picked this up from the Charity shop with little idea what to expect. Turns out i enjoyed this book a lot and although its not a big book, it pulls one hell of a punch, that will leave a lasting impression long after you put the book down.

This book is depressing and it seeps into your very soul, as you are reading, your mind is trying to come up with ways in which these poor people could survive the threat, but you know its useless as there is no escape. Survival is the best they can hope for. All you can do as a reader is suffer with them as they plod on in this alien infested world.

I don't want to spoil anything, so all i suggest is that you pick up a copy, i don't think you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am writing this under an appreciable mental strain, since by tonight I shall be no more..., 8 Mar 2011
Nothing much else to say what already hasn't been said to be honest. This is an incredible book of some of H.P Lovecraft's finest short story's. They are all different but most of them are connected into the 'Cthulu Mythos' which deals with entity's from other worlds, extra terrestrial and inter dimensional.

''Common themes in Lovecraft's fiction are the insignificance of humanity in the universe and the search for knowledge ending in disaster. Humans are often subject to powerful beings and other cosmic forces, but these forces are not so much malevolent as they are indifferent toward humanity. ''

You've got the terrific short story 'The Statement of Randolph Carter' at only 5 pages long, still manages to be highly creepy with the best end line I've ever read.

Then we have 'At the Mountains of Madness' at around 50 pages which centers on a groups expedition to the antarctic where they find that an ancient race once dwelled there.

You have tales about Rats, Cats, Aliens, and many other things to weird to mention!

Not one bad story here, and most of them are fantastic. I never thought that story's from nearly 100 years ago could be so thrilling and downright creepy, but i was proven wrong.

This is a must by for any fans of horror literature....

The end is near. I hear a noise at the door, as of some immense slippery body lumbering against it. It shall not find me. God, that hand! The window! The window!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Horror Romp!, 15 Dec 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dead Space (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Hello all.

I haven't had so much fun playing a horror survival game since the Resident Evil and Silent hill games on the Playstation!

Those were the games that amazed you because you had never played anything like it before. As one reviewer pointed out the feeling of playing Resident Evil and you meet your first zombie eating away at a corpse, or the dog jumping through the window and making your heart jump out of your mouth!

Now im not saying that Dead Space will blow you away like those other horror games did because we've come to know what to expect from horror games these days. It is very hard to be original. But what this game does is re-ignite that drive and terror you once had when playing Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Lets face it, nothing has compared since. The sequals have been dire and even though there has been some fun horror games, there hasn't been too much amazing.

I think Dead Space is fantastic has it combines the action of Resident Evil and atmosphere of Silent Hill. The enemies are gruesome and the boss enemies are scary! One of which will surely remind you of the unstoppable tyrant of the Resi series. The way in which you can dispatch enemies is ultra cool too. Its best to take there limbs off so they can't run and eat you, and while they are writhing around ont he floor you can just go and put them out of there misery by stomping there face off haha.

The space ship is very claustropobic and walking down those narrow corridors is not a pleasent experience. You see you never know where you enemy will spring from as they hide in the ventilation system and they just love to spring out when you least expect it. A simple small corridor holds many of these vents and you could easily be attacked from behind if you let your guard down.

The weapons you get are excellent, i think there are about 6 in total and you can make them even more powerful( Damage, reload speed, capacity etc) by collecting power nodes that build them up. There are not enough nodes to build up all guns so its best to decide early what guns you want to stick with. I tend to stick to 3 weapons, the original gun you get,the line gun and pulse rifle. Power nodes are also handy if you want to unlock certain rooms which they hold a few goodies, although you may prefer to keep it to build up your weapons or your space suit. You will have fun deciding, thats for sure.

I like how the game picks up in increasing difficulty as the game goes on. Obviously thats what all games do but i feel this one does it perfectly. The intensity picks up drastically as you come to the end of the 12 chapters. it took me a good 13 hours to complete, bear in mind that im cautious and like to savour the game as opposed to rushing through it.

Don't worry about it only being single player either. It doesn't need multiplayer mode and you will understand when playing it. Play this ALONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars I was worried coming into season 8.. but in the end i was pleasantly surprised!, 6 Jun 2006
This review is from: X Files: Season 8 [DVD] (DVD)
Ok you have heard the bad reviews

''mulder isnt in it as much anymore, they have ruined the x files''

Well i have to disagree. Its not as if Mulder had left for ever, he was abducted. And you know he will be back, and you he does come back in season 8. Thats what makes season 8 a breath of fresh air, you anxiously await mulders return. =

It new characters coming into play. Agent John Doggett, i thought he was great. He is more like skully was in the early seasons, skepitcal as hell. And skully is trying to be more like mulder. You will learn to love him for sure.

Most of the episodes on here are solid, i noticed there wasnt any stinkers. There was a few average ones, but nothing terrible unlike the past seasons.

I loved the end episode, the end when mulder and skully share a tender moment together. i liked mulders line at the time:

'' but there is a truth we do both know skully''

''whats that?''


i leave you to guess what happens next. it was a lovely end and i think it would of done the series no harm to end there. But of course people need to know 'the truth'.Hopefully season 9 will be as good as season 8. It definelty is one of the better seasons of the series!

Have no fear, sit back, relax and enjoy this great season:)
