5.0 out of 5 stars They're bulbs...they light up stuff..., 22 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not sure how you can rate bulbs, but these seem to do the trick just fine. I've had the lamp I ordered the bulbs for plugged in for about an hour and they still work fine.
Price wise, this is very cheap, even including the delivery especially considering you are getting 4.

I'm not 100% sure whether it is halogen or not (my view was halogen lights have a bluey tint to them whereas this one is a warm orange as per traditional lights) but it's powerful enough and the same type as the one I had before.

On the side: When you order them you get all 4 as individual bulbs with no packaging (like you would in the shops). This shouldn't be a cause for alarm as they were incredibly well protected within the actual envelope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and highly practical, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my mother who in the space of a year had already broken two similar bins. I'm pleased to say that it's been just over a year and the bin is still in near-perfect condition.
The size is just right (you can fit your standard UK bin bag in it) and although the design is basic, it doesn't stick out in a bad way.
Highly recommended for people looking for a simple yet practical bin.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lost gem of stylish cheese, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Streets Of Fire [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
Walter Hill was responsible for some of the greater movies of the 80's and yet for some reason his attempt at making a 'rock and roll fable' have almost been forgotten. It's cheesy as hell, sure, but then that was the era it was made for.
The acting is fine, nothing more than you would expect. Paré shines as Cody and kinda makes you wonder what happened to the guy, while Dafoe is pretty menacing as the biker gang leader.
The look of the movie is pretty good, and while it wasn't exctly low budget, they obviously utilised every penny to create a convincing portrayal of some neo-apocalyptic city.
The music though is where the movie shines through. Pulsing with 80's pop, this is not a movie you want to have the speakers turned down to and in fact pretty much carries the entire movie. The tunes are catchy, well-written and do a good job of melting into the background (this isn't exactly a musical after all).

At the end of the day the movie feels outdated and it is dangerously close to being too camp but I still enjoy the hell out of every viewing and it still remains one of my favourite Walter Hill movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a perfectly good skull, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For some reason I felt my house could do with an ornamental skull. I didn't want to spend huge amounts of cash on one (so that waved goodbye to all the anatomically correct medicinal models) and then this one caught my eye.

For the price it's a good size and a very detailed model. Sure it's made from plastic but you can only tell when you stand right next to it. The fact it isn't an authentic replica just makes it less creepy when someone asks why you have a skull above the fireplace.

(I read that someone used it as a hat stand. I tried it but either the skull was too small or my head was too big as the hat wouldn't stay on properly. It does however work as a sunglasses perch.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bath mat or 'towel', it does the job just fine, 20 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's a lot of concern going on that this is a towel rather than a bath mat (I think it's to do with the fact there's no rubber protection on the bottom of the mat). I guess in the same way you could use a duvet cover as a table cloth, you could use this mat as a towel. Or even a towel as a bath mat.

I happen to be using it as a bath mat and it does the job perfectly. It doesn't slide around the floor, it soaks up 95% of the water and it dries pretty fast too. For the price they want, you couldn't ask for anything better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it, it was always going to be weird, 11 May 2013
The movie is considered to be one of the great modern flops, both critically and commercially, which is a shame as you can see the devotion that director Richard Kelly put into it. I personally find this film to be amazing (flawed sure, but amazing none-the-less) and I immediately sought out the opportunity to buy the blu-ray.

The picture quality is very good, slightly better than the DVD given that the movie was filmed in digital, and each scene shines with gloss. What does stand out is the soundtrack. As always with a blu-ray, the sound quality is very important and here is no exception. Every little sound rings loud and clear and Moby's hypnotic score is a wonder to listen to.

My only qualm with the blu-ray is the complete lack of special features, very disappointing given that this is a movie with a lot of history behind it. I was personally hoping that it would have both the original and theatrical cut of the movies, but it seems to only be the post-Cannes theatrical cut.

Fans of the movie shouldn't think twice about upgrading their DVD.

My original iPod earphones finally gave out but I wasn't interested in paying over £30 for the 'top-of-the-range" headphones and instead looked for a cheap set to use on a daily basis. The sound is amazing given the price involved and I hardly notice any drop in music quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Among the best pens, 11 May 2013

I've always used liquid ink pens and these are among my top choice, for both price and performance. They can occasionally drip ink if kept pointing downwards for extended periods of time, but then that's the same with all pens like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I understand that this is considered the Javascript bible, therefore I knew it was going to be a very useful book. You don't have to be an expert in computers to understand the book, just to know some basic maths and various basic internet functions. Even after only reading the first chapter I felt I was a lot smarter in coding.

It isn't a really luxurious flag but for the price it's a steal. There's a few spots however where it seems the colours didn't print correctly, but it's only noticeable if you stare at it long enough.
