2.0 out of 5 stars First order faulty. Replacements ok so far., 30 May 2014

First set of chips were faulty. Got a replacement quickly and so far they seem to work. Haven't noticed a big jump in my Vaio laptop's performance though. Despite this upgrade doubling the RAM to 8gb.

Doesn't work. Sent back as a faulty item. Plugged in and tv display was pink. Read up online and it's the cable that's faulty.

Had to return for a refund. Advertised as "100% Compatible" with iPhone 5 and iOS7. Nope! Got Apple's unhelful incompatible message and phone wouldn't charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars great debut, 13 Sep 2013
This review is from: Liquidizer (MP3 Download)
As a diehard metal head there's a lot to like about this album. Matching synths and dance beats to guitars sounds like an awful contrivance but it worked for Jesus Jones. Its a harder album than Doubt and a bit samey here and there. But it shows what British bands were capable of before oasis turned up and played the same two songs over four albums.

2.0 out of 5 stars underwhelming, 29 Aug 2013
This review is from: Outro (MP3 Download)
I heard this on a tv advert and thought it was maybe Brian Eno or someone riffing off Vangelis. Its a case of the latter. The track is 4 odd minutes but most of it is redundant "ambience" ie silence. Major letdown.

It's a pencil case so it's a bit difficult to rate how enjoyable it is. Seems sturdy enough to last in a primary three's schoolbag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authoritative, not for the faint-hearted!, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a confidence builder. It's about as complete a text as possible on what it means to be a writer, and what demands that makes of the individual.

There's no doubting the author's credentials, he is one of the heavyweights of Hollywood. He pulls no punches in pointing out the many (in his eyes) flaws in modern screenwriting. Some of the concepts are a bit hard to follow, but hey it's a book you can always re-read when it comes to preparing your masterworks.

My only niggle with the book is he does cite the French New Wave - Brunuel, Godard as well as Ingmar Bergman an awful lot. The only American writer who gets a look in is Robert Towne. Perhaps McKee doesn't rate any of the Scorseses or Spielbergs but it would have been good to at least get his take on their (immensley successful) approaches to story.

Despite all the self-analysis, smashing of preconceptions, and an awful lot of honest (are you sure you can do this?) talk, McKee has crafted a text that spurs the budding writer on. It builds confidence by presenting the tools, saying 'Look, this works' and then setting you free. His parting message is to be courageous. Something that I have learned and will be putting into practice today, and everyday from now on.

2.0 out of 5 stars A soapy European mongrol, 19 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sicilian [DVD] (DVD)
I'm a Cimino completist and had vague memories of this being sort-of ok when I watched this on VHS back in 1988. I was wrong, although stunning to look at it's a misjudged, uneven mess of a film. Hamstrung by an awful lead performance from Christopher Lambert, and featuring the usually great Joss Ackland in an awkward Mafioso role, the story is a muddled tale of a supposedly real life Sicilian Robin Hood. It has moments of art-house pretension, soapy melodrama and the odd bit of brutal violence. But the overall effect is a made for TV miniseries that's been compacted into a feature film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dark and different, 19 Mar 2013

A nice alternate take on the Snow White tale. A bit too 'Twighlighty' in places, but Kristen Stewart does dial back her now-legendary poutiness. Charlize Theron is a standout though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not anamorphic, it is letterbox despite confusing packaging, 19 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A thoroughly enjoyable early-70s crime thriller, the debut from writer-director Michael Cimino. Perhaps a sign of the times but the laughs do sit a little uneasily with the sometimes brutal violence. The picture quality is ok but the biggest annoyance is the product info on the back. It says the picture is presented in letterbox, but then is described as 4:3 full frame. (Sort of) thankfully it's letterboxed, preserving the 2:40:1 aspect ratio, but 16:9 anamorphic would've been much better.
