3.0 out of 5 stars The realism of American streets portrayed in London- doesn't work., 11 Feb. 2013
This review is from: The Sweeney [DVD] (DVD)
This is an American style movie played out on the streets in London- just doesn't cut it for me. The script is unintelligent, some of the actors are children- Ben Drew- this guy does not know how to act, how was he picked to play a tough role along side RW? Bad casting selection. DL would have been better as RW's partner. The whole movie is just fake if played out on the streets of London especially the shooting sprees, but its right at home in many American cities, which are normally laden with psychopaths and even bigger psychopath police officers. The script writers and director should have produced an intelligent and soulful movie that leaves a lasting impression. Its a movie I wouldn't want to see again (I gave it 3 stars as I hear its 'Made In Britain').

1.0 out of 5 stars OH DEAR......, 11 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Dredd [DVD] (DVD)
With all that money the studios have, why not at least get a descent script? Dredd is a clear example of the recent direction of Hollywood- make any incoherent and unintelligent crap. A Judge Dredd movie should be about Dredd- raw and ready not some psychic woman thrown in because the script was thin and pathetic. Why did they have this psychic woman in this movie? She didn't even look like a woman- more like a teenager, a teenager alongside Dredd- lacks authenticity. Even worse was having a female villain in a male dominated apartment block- these males were savage and evil- the kind that would not let a woman sit on the throne, its just not in mans nature, that is why Dredd is a male. Hollywood is world class when it comes to making crap, well done for this piece of crap.

1.0 out of 5 stars GREATLY DISAPPOINTED - TYPICAL HOLLYWOOD CRAP, 11 Feb. 2013
With so much hype about this film and having Nolan at the controls, I am disappointed with the final product as it turns out to be just another hollywood mash. Nolan has fallen for the holloywood disease in thinking all of the cinema goers lack intelligence and wants to see a quick succession of shoots from different scenes blasted on to the screen. This film has too many characters, who's idea was this? It could not have been Nolan's idea as he is very good when it comes to characters- they are well developed and you only see the right number of characters, not too many to blow your head off. There are also minor details that are not right- the security hand scans do not match where the hand is placed, the bomb/energy machine looks unreal like its out of some futuristic movie, the police force is made to look thin and stupid, the police charge on the criminals like in some medieval movie, the national guard is non existent, how does a girl make it out of the well getting past the final hurdle when BW has many failed attempts and survives even though other attemptees fail and die plus its physics- if a girl can jump that final section then an agile man with longer legs can do it with lesser exertion, etc. There are many more instances where the film just looks like Nolan got fed up- may be with WarnerBros. The film is probably worth 3 stars, but I am only giving it 1 as there was a lot of hope and hype that made the film seem to be brilliant, but it has turned out to be Hollywood jargon. The previous Batman film with the joker is much much better. Another film i watched around the time of The Dark Night Rises was Summer Wars, a Japanese animation, this animation was 100 times more entertaining than this final Dark Night Rises crap. After watching the previous Batman I was really looking forward to the Dark Knight Rises- turns out to be a waste of money. If you want to watch this film, buy it as cheap second hand DVD. This Batman trilogy has taken the natural Hollywood course- make a reasonable film, make a better sequel, make a third instalment by throwing in all sorts for rubbish just for the money, make a 4th film that has totally lost the plot and it is given a U rating, make a 5th instalment and thats when Hollywood realises its a mistake. Its happened before with Batman and I can see it happening again. You may disagree with my opinion if so you should question your intelligence as should those people who gave it 4 or more stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH/GARBAGE!, 3 Dec. 2012
This review is from: The Flock [2008] [DVD] (DVD)
This film is a clear sign that hollywood has lost the plot. Those that thought this film is not bad or ok- you have no sense or intelligence, you are thrilled and suspenseful by a leaf falling from a tree. I borrowed the DVD from a friend, he had paid for it with hard earned money. After watching an hour of this rubbish, I snapped and I took the DVD out of the player, jumped into the car, drove 10min, threw the DVD into a heap of rubbish. I phoned my friend and gave him some verbal abuse, I also told him he will not be seeing that DVD again and for his sake and anyone else's sake (who might get their hands on his DVD) its better to leave on that heap of rubbish. This film is utter rubbish, the acting and story telling is utterly silly. Which fool paid to see this at the cinema, if it did make it to the cinema that is? What I really want to know is which fool made this outright garbage? Some fool also commented Avril Lavine was a great supporting actress, has this guy ever seen this film? Maybe he heard from a friend that some girl by the name of Avril Lavine is in the film. Outrageous to say she was great in support, for all she said was said a couple of words and did nothing else in the film (up to the hour or so that I watched when she was found dead). Garbage or Babbage what ever his name (Gere's character) gets fired from the job, breaks into Danes's house and is waiting there for her. Danes arrives home and Garbage sneaks up behind her and holds a gun at her, Babbage is literally right behind her, so close it made me think, is he going to shaft her from behind? This was a silly, outrageous, perverse scene, that could have been done differently- the same applies to the rest of the hour or so that I put up with. This film is not for you if you like anything any where near reasonable quality. If you fancy outright hollywood garbage then please yourself. Finally may I remind you I watched about an hour of this film, forcefully, then took the DVD from the player, drove a mile and threw it into a heap of rubbish. Amazon please please introduce zero stars and negative stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bullet ridden, 22 Nov. 2012
The film is ok to watch but I do have my reservations, its a bit like die hard with added martial arts. Its high octane rush hour amazing stunts. That's where the problem lies- I think its a sign that films from that region are beginning to take the Hollywood route, when this happens the story line gets thin, characterization goes out the window and some scenes are far fetched and totally outrageous. This film does have a bit of a story, some characters are developed but all that action pushes the intelligent stuff out the way. The one thing that I really enjoyed was the cinematography and some of the locations. Worth a look as its very close to a 4-star film.

This review is from: Brave Story [DVD] (DVD)
Based on what my 6 year old son has said and his level of excitement at watching it again, this anime deserves 5 stars. I quite enjoyed it too. As usual the animation looks great and it is the animation that had drawn me to anime in the first place. The story is good too. I am sure most kids will enjoy this anime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic that should be remade for the 21St Century, 19 Oct. 2012
I can see why this film has become a classic. Its got a story, characters, fight scenes, etc. if this film is remade just to update the fight scenes to make them look more realistic and tense, then I will give it give stars. I did not enjoy the character with the telescopic arms- they just seemed OTT. The updated version could also be a bit longer to build the characters further. On the whole, very enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars I should have listened to the reviews!, 11 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This product is good value for money, it looks cool and the sound is of good quality. BUT, it turns out it is not what I was looking for! Also I should have listened to the reviews! I was looking for head phones that encapsulate the ears, which these are not. I think I need to spend a bit more to get what I am looking for. However, this bluetooth business is a bit annoying- on my MacBook I kept loosing connection and I had to regularly re-pair the two. I am not sure how many, but some reviews mentioned the blue light is annoying and so bright that it lights up the room and that the blue light would look silly when commuting.....that is very very true! I cannot fault the supplier, their service was good. I wonder if the product spec at amazon mentioned anywhere that the pads do not cover the ears entirely, if so I would not have bought them.

Good product, does the job. Great service from supplier- received ahead of expectation and well packaged. I have come across two types of innotab cases, this one is better value for money as it has done the job well- protecting the innotab.
