Indesit MOON SIXL145 S/D  Washing Machine
Indesit MOON SIXL145 S/D Washing Machine

1.0 out of 5 stars They know they have a problem, 24 May 2015
It's been on BBC Watchdog, sadly some time after we bought the blasted thing. Slime, smell, but worse of all white marks on dark clothing. Lost count of how many times we have had to wash clothes by hand following a wash. No spin cycle, no 90 degree cleanse wash and no rinse option. Why then did we buy one, because we were seduced by Indesit's sell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as book one, 10 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as good as the first. This is more about the developing relationship between Buck and Chloe. Will read the third in the series, hopefully it will be better, if not then that will be it for me.

Bit of a tangled but seems reasonable quality, no room for complaint. Arrived in good time. Will use this supplier again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dare I say, better than the original..., 1 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is rare for an sequel to be better than the original, that’s not to say the original was lacking in any way - most definitely not. But this sequel is an absolute corker; typically James Cameron. The action is non-stop and the scary bits (there’s a lot of ’em) are gripping. Brilliant brilliant brilliant! Need I say more… Well yes I do. This should have been the last Alien movie in my opinion as the others just didn't do it for me. Neill Blomkamp, rumoured to be working on a script for a new film in the Alien franchise, said that his sequel will disregard the events of 1992's Alien 3 and 1997's Alien: Resurrection. I'll drink to that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Plodding, 1 April 2015
This review is from: Interstellar [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
I had such great expectations for this movie; sort lived as it turned out.

Firstly; 162 minutes it a long time to sit through a movie, especially one as dull as Interstellar and one that could easily have been condensed into 90 minutes tops, such was the dire plot and in one or two cases cringe worthy acting.

Secondly; if you’re expecting a special effects fest - forget it, there’s nothing to get excited about. At one point, as the crew passed through a wormhole you would be forgiven for thinking you had been transported back to an addition of Top of the Pops during its seventies psychedelic phase, such was the dated effect.

Thirdly; the music would often drown out the dialogue. This would have been just about bearable if the music score was anything to write home about; it wasn’t. But no amount of a reduction to the music volume would have improved the incomprehensible slurred, southern drawl of Matthew McConaughey. Often during the movie my girlfriend and I would ask of one another, “what did he say?”

Fourthly;

So, pretty dull, in fact I am at a loss to understand 4 and 5 star ratings by other reviewers, but then one man's poison...

3.0 out of 5 stars Catch could be its downfall, 27 Feb. 2015
It's a good quality product let down by its iffy loop-catch affair which is just slipped over the raised lip of the scull. I find myself periodically checking it's still attached to my wrist. Good prompt delivery though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great shame, 1 Jan. 2015
This sadly is a prime example of how a TV series does not work on film. The story is dire and the laughs are non existent. It's a great shame, as I am a fan of the series so was expecting so much more. I can only hope that Mr O'Carroll puts this one behind him and stick to TV.

Good jacket but waterproof it ain't. Recent shower saw water ingress to the sleeves. Still for the money...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product but with delivery issues, 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good crisp sound, not quite as good as my outgoing Technics units that have served me well for many years but still a good 'sound' buy. However, I was faced with a delivery charge of £3.80 because Amazon had not covered the freight charge which should have been free. After a dismissive phone call to Amazon who told me to take the issue up with the Royal Mail (what the hell had it got to do with Royal Mail) a follow up live chat conversation a day later with an another Amazon agent who happily took ownership of my issue and promptly resolved it. Shame the chap on thier free phone line wasn't as helpful.
