3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, 23 Dec 2012

The product is descibed as waterproof and if by waterproof it means that it resists a little water then I guess its accurate. To be fair I wasnt surprised that its not that great considering the price. My first experience was with that misty rain that was going all day, I was walking around town for an hour or so and when i got back to the car and took them off my trousers underneath were wet wherever there were creases (I assume where the trouser material pressed against the waterproofs). So they were better than nothing but not great, however considering the price this was not a surprise to me so was reasonably happy with them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent dark fantasy romp, 22 May 2010
This review is from: Solomon Kane [DVD] (DVD)
Extremely dark sword and sorcery adventure with a strong central performance from James Purefoy and some impressively gritty production design, it wasn't quite as good as I had hoped but I am a fan of the short stories and thus had high expectations, it was let down slightly by the ending which was a little truncated i thought, but hopefully it will lead to a sequel.

Bassett takes an extremely dark approach to the material, playing it admirably straight throughout - there are no witty one-liners as Solomon dispatches his enemies, for example. There is more sword than sorcery in this flick but it is well done.

James Purefoy is excellent as Kane, his natural charisma and charm compensating for the fact that Solomon is hardly a white knight. There's also strong support from Rachel and Patrick Hurd-Wood, Pete Postlethwaite is excellent as usual and Max von Sydow, who works his usual magic.

It was a shame that some of the best sorcery/demonic scenes were (from my POV) at the very start of the film, the demonic mirror scene for instance was very well done and then the final demonic scene felt a bit rushed but still enjoyable for all that.

If you like dark sword and scorcery flicks then you wont be disappointed, as it's certainly a cut above the better B movies I have seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars 80s rock nostalgia, 15 July 2009

This review is from: Days of Heaven (Audio CD)
I first saw this band on a late night TV heavy rock show, found a recording of the show and the band on an old video cassette and decided to find it online. It was hard to find but got it eventually.

Music is always a matter of taste but if you like 80s rock then you wont go far wrong with this
